Powur Review – MLM Solar Panel Business?
Hey, welcome to my Powur review!
There has been a lot of buzz around this new company and I decided to investigate what it was all about…
Maybe you have been approached by a rep about their solar panels or someone talked to you on Facebook about it…
And now you want to make sure that this company is actually legit correct?
First, I would like to congratulate you for actually doing your research before jumping into a business opportunity.
So many people just jump in without having a clue about it and then realize they made a mistake…
In this Powur review, I am going to walk you through the company, the products and compensation plan so you can make the right decision to join or not…
First, let’s see what the company is all about…
Powur Review – The Company
The website itself doesn’t have a lot of information on it, it’s more of a slide show than anything…
Powur is a solar panel distributor that uses the direct sales marketing structure to sell their products to customers.
Powur claims to be the first public benefit corporate (Classified as a “B-corp”) to exist in the network marketing industry.
Powur is affiliated with a company called SolarCity that installs solar panels all around the United States…
So who is the brain child behind behind this company? Founder and CEO at Powur PBC is Jonathan Budd…
He was the co-founder of a company called Rippln that failed big time in 2014…
Then a few months later, he launched MyStand which was a task-based social-change opportunity, but it doesn’t look like it went anywhere.
Right now the “MyStand” website is marked “Under Construction”.
Then Powur came out of no where, but the concept is interesting…
Next, let’s take a look at the products…
Powur Reviews – The Products
Powur is a true peer-to-peer marketing model to sell solar electricity.
They use a company called SolarCity to install these solar panels on your house.

Powur Review – The Verdict
Overall, the company looks good.
Even though the CEO had some bad luck in the past with start ups, it looks like with Powur he turned it around.
The fact they are focusing on retail sales instead of recruitment is a good sign and is very compliant.
The compensation plan does suggest that recruiting is where the big money is at…
Nothing wrong with that.
For the people that want to sell these solar panels, how are your sales skills?
Are you willing to go door to door?
Are you willing to get rejected by some customers?
If you are, then Powur will serve you well…
If you don’t like going door to door or get rejected by people, there is another business model that will benefit you instead.
It’s called eCommerce…
Now it’s not what you are thinking…
You don’t have to create your own websites or drive any traffic or own any of your products…
I personally have added an extra 6 figures on top of my primary business I do…
So if you are in Powur and want to make a little extra on the side while you get off the ground…
