[Summit] Trinity Solar: Input?

Hi Paul,

This sounds fishy to me. We had 20 panels installed on our house a year ago.
There are quite a few homes on the East Side that have panels. There are
lots of companies selling these, with varying financial arrangements. Some
of them are more reputable than others. It does make sense in most cases to
do it, both financially and environmentally, but there are lots of
variables. Be sure you talk to someone who understands the engineering, not
just a sales person. And make sure your roof is reasonably new before you do
There is a state mandate to National Grid, but there is no installer
designation. In any case, you don't get something for nothing.

Hey all,

Yesterday I was approached by a very nice person from Trinity Solar.

They claim to be installing panels through a state mandate requiring
our local grid to be 20% solar by 2020.

Are they on the up and up?  What do you know about them please?

They say they are working through the RI DOE, that is overseeing this
implementation, and there is no charge for the panels (per se?) to the
consumer, that they get paid for by a solar charge for the first seven
years (approx. equivalent to one's present electric bill), then after
that you own the panels free and clear and don't have a fee for
electricity consumed.

Input greatly appreciated.  Any hidden catches one can think of?
