Solar Referral Program

Dear SEM Tribe (that’s you!), 

Our business is driven primarily through referrals. This allows us to spend more time and resources on taking care of our tribe—our awesome customers, steadfast partners, and loyal advocates—instead of on marketing and sales campaigns. Our commitment to you (as a part of tribe) extends far beyond installing your solar system. We commit to always be there for you. Just let us know what you need and we’ll be there to do whatever we can to help you. In return, we ask that you share your experience with Southern Energy Management with any of your friends or family members who might be interested in solar. We promise to take care of any referrals you send our way as well as we took care of you. 

When you refer a friend that ends up going solar with us, we’ll celebrate by giving them $250 off their system and giving you $250 for being awesome (or $500 off your next Powerwall). 

In 2020, we expanded our referral program to include a $250 donation to the Foodbank of Central and Eastern North Carolina for each referral that went solar with us. Your referrals help keep us going during this difficult time, and for that we’re extremely thankful. With your support, we were able to share the love by giving back $9,750 to the foodbank in 2020. Stay tuned for new 2021 partnership announcements! 

So get out there, share the joy of your solar system, and make sure you let us know if you ever need anything.


Gratefully,

The Southern Energy Management Team

B Corp Gift Basket Raffle

Through the end of the year, anyone who sends friends or family our way will be entered into a B Corp Gift Basket Raffle, with gifts celebrating other B Corps who are also using business as a force for good. This raffle is a small way to express how extremely thankful we are to our Shine Tribe community of customers and advocates. You’ll still get $250 if your friend goes solar, this is just a little something extra to say thanks for trusting us with your solar journey — and your friends’ too!

 

This basket contains nearly $1000 in rewards from local, B Corp certified businesses including:

Spread the Joy of Powering Up With the Sun!

Since 2001, we’ve been on a mission to improve the way people make and use energy — one solar system and energy efficient home at a time. We really appreciate our Shine Tribe (that’s you) joining us in this mission, and would love to help your friends, family, and neighbors begin their solar journey too!

Leading the Change Together

As part of our Shine Tribe, sharing your experience with going solar helps our business continue to thrive and grow — and for that we’re extremely thankful! 

With your referrals, we are also able to spend more resources on taking care of our awesome customers, steadfast partners, loyal advocates, and local community instead of marketing and sales campaigns. This allows us to build a stronger Shine Tribe of families and individuals that share our vision! Check out our referral perks below. We promise to take care of any referrals you send our way as well as we took care of you — plus we’ve got $250 with your name on it!

Frequently Asked Questions

We will send whoever you refer to us a single email letting them know that you’ve referred them. The email will include details on referral perks, the option to schedule a solar assessment, and will have lots of helpful solar resources! We promise never to spam your friends or share their contact info with anyone else. You can preview the email we send here.

There is no limit! You can refer as many friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, long lost relatives, and casual acquaintances as you want.

Short answer: No. Anyone who is passionate about solar energy and wants to support our mission can refer a friend. Non-customer solar advocates can also qualify for the $250 reward if their friend goes solar with us. Just make sure your referral passes your name and contact info to us so we can get you that sweet referral bonus!

  • Referrals must not already be a customer of Southern Energy Management to be eligible.
  • Rewards for referrals will be paid upon customer payment of the final invoice, after completion of the installation.
  • There are no limits to the rewards you can earn, but expansion projects are only eligible if we were NOT the original installer.
  • You do not need to be a customer of ours to be a Shine Tribe Solar Advocate, just make sure your referral sends us your contact information.

Really, anyone who is interested in solar energy – Our solar educators love chatting about the sun and geeking out over solar power!! However, keep in mind, homes that are covered in trees without a southern-facing roof are typically not good solar contenders.

Sharing the Love

In 2020, we expanded our referral program to include a $250 donation to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina for each referral that went solar with us. Your referrals helped us keep going during this difficult time, and for that we’re extremely thankful. With your support, we were able to share the love by giving back $9,750 to the food bank in 2020. Stay tuned for new 2021 partnership announcements!
