When you are looking for your next solar light project, look to using a distributor to help with the process of design and purchasing. Distributors have a large network of manufacturers they have relationships with and know quality products that they can refer you to use for most any project. Here are some of the benefits to working with a solar light distributor for any project, small to large.

 

Large Network of Manufacturers

Distributors work directly with the manufacturers of solar lighting systems. This means they typically know the products well, or at least know who to reach out to get more information on a product. Since manufacturers are located worldwide, having a distributor that can reach the manufacturer can ensure you are working with a reputable company that they have an established relationship with and you don’t have to worry about the logistics of bringing the product to your site.

 

Credit Terms and Pricing Discounts

Distributors are large and have the ability to extend credit terms to their customer base. Many manufacturers work with financing up front with no credit terms. This can be tricky, especially when projects go into the higher spectrum of costs.

 

Even better, distributors can get discounts that the general public is not able to from the manufacturers directly. Since distributors take on a lot of the paperwork, marketing, logistics and storage, manufacturers can cut down their overhead and pass those savings along to the distributors which can save the end user a little green.

 

Shipping and Logistics

Distributors can work directly with the solar light manufacturer to have the shipment sent to their local facility, or even to your job-site directly. They can handle large shipment and consolidate all equipment for a single project into a location for easy pickup, even store it until you are ready for the equipment for installation. Most manufacturers do not have the storage capabilities to hold onto equipment for a period of time and instead prefer to complete and ship as soon as possible.

 

One Stop Shop

Finally, most projects don’t have a single product that you are required to deal with. Most electrical distributors have access to a multitude of different products and can put together a single order that includes the solar lights along with other fixtures, poles, wiring, and so many other components. This cuts down on the run around trying to gather all components for a single project, saving time and reducing stress.

 

As you can clearly see, working with distributors can really have many benefits. Distributors provide many personalized services manufacturers sometimes can’t since they specialize in a single product, such as solar light systems, where a distributor has many different avenues for different aspects of a project. Speak to your local solar light or electrical distributor to get more information for your next project.
