Legal disclaimer… Sun Source brokers and consultants are autonomous members of Sun Source Solar Brokers. Sun Source does not employ its members, nor are they employees of the affiliate companies whose products or services we exemplify. Each member independently represents and contracts his services to clients of whom Sun Source has referred. Each broker or consultant is responsible for implementing his own client contracts, insurance, and legal devices. The actions and functions of each broker or consultant remain distinctly separate from the marketing and referral functions of Sun Source Solar Brokers. Each broker-consultant agrees to furnish Sun Source with proof of professional qualifications, legal-contractual devices and insurance before conducting business with any Sun Source referred client. Sun Source Solar Brokers, as a “marketer”, is a separate function from “brokering” and “consulting”, insofar as, Sun Source Solar Brokers, (the business marketing entity) is not legally or financially liable for verbal, contractual, structural, implied or unintentional inaccuracies or mis-representation(s) surrounding any hypothetical, proposed or real installation of any solar or alternative energy equipment purchase that is represented through any of our independent solar broker or energy consultant members.
Explanation and definition of how we are paid… Our brokers take a share of the commission [split] that is paid to us by the solar company who closes a solar installation sale with you. For example, if a sales commission for the winning solar company [sales agent] is 6%, then the solar broker will take 3%, 4% or 5% as compensation for professional broker services, advertising and marketing. Our compensation share may change on a higher priced project or calculate as LESS on a lower priced project. Learn more.
