They focus not only on the sales and installation of solar panels, they offer electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, and air purification solutions.
The electric vehicle market is soaring, and expected to continue to grow. “7% of U.S. adults said they currently have an electric or hybrid vehicle, and 39% said they were very or somewhat likely to seriously consider buying an electric vehicle the next time they’re in the market for new wheels” (Pew Research). As it stands, SuperGreen Solutions, is the only franchise that offers a solution to meet this demand.
