FAQ's

Q: Why should I become a Viridian electric and gas sales associate?


A: Because many dealers are visited by 5,000 or more customers per week.  About 90% of them are needlessly overpaying for their utilities. If you could capture just 10% of this market then you could pocket $1,000 or more per month. Selling it is easy. You just pass a card to your customers at the point of sale, asking them to bring in their utility bill. You can show them how to save immediately. In addition, you could on your own station’s natural gas usage.

 

Q: Why should I install solar panels?


A:  Imagine if you had electircity through out the Hurricane Sandy crisis, with solar panels that would have happened . The panels will allow you to eliminate your purchased electricity, and since they can be 100% financed, there is no up-front cost.  The savings should more than cover the monthly payments on the equipment, and once paid off, you will eliminate your electricity bill entirely. The tax credits and depreciation write-off''s are an added bonus.  In addition, your property value will increase significantly. 


Q: Why should I sell fuel additives?


A: Because the mark-up on this product is about 50%, compared with maybe 10% on gas, an increase in  gas mileage of 5% saves the customer about a gallon per stop. However, you can make about ten times as much on that lost gallon, through the fuel additive sale. It will also extend your customers engine life.


Q: Why would I want a C-store or fast food franchise on my property?
