We are biologically programmed for fairness.
We like a level playing field. If we feel something is unfair, if we do the same task and get a different reward, our reactions can be intense. Watch this one minute video of what happens when two monkeys are given a different reward for the same task.
In most network marketing companies, you get a very different reward if you are at the top of the company than if you are at the bottom for doing the same work. And to move up the levels you have to jump through all sorts of hoops that depend on other people doing certain production at certain times, balancing teams with commissionable volume, and a bunch of acronyms most people don’t understand. After a while, people want to throw their cucumbers!
With CREW, it is simple.
You are paid progressively more on your first 3 solar upgrades as you are being trained, and on your 4th upgrade and beyond you can earn as much as the top person in the entire company. Simple. You can also reach the top level in CREW without ever building a team (we are the only company in our industry to offer this) — and we will even award you a Tesla so you can drive around in style (just average 2 solar upgrades a week, and you can earn a Tesla, even if you never sponsor one person).
One other thing on fairness…many companies charge you a large sign up fee to join, and then actually pay those fees out to the leaders to keep them happy. This “income” is not generated from adding real value in the marketplace. They call it a ‘training” or “customer bonus,” but it is really a fee for recruiting others (which is supposed to be illegal based on pyramiding laws). The sign up fee is simply “redistributed” from the many to the few and those few are then promoted by the company as “success stories?”
As an example, if 10,000 people sign up in a company and pay $499 each…and then the company pays out $4.5 million in “bonuses” they are simply “redistributing” the sign-up fees (and keeping about $500,000 for the company). That creates some “big checks” and some major “success stories,” but for us it violates the “fairness” clause.
Most of these companies do this not because they want to, but because they have to — it comes with significant business and legal risks (many companies have been shut down for this model). Excel Communications was the first big company to utilize the model. They had a problem.
- When you switched people’s phone service, you only made pennies a month — so they raised the sign up fee and created the “Customer Acquisition Bonus.”
- When you got your first customers you were paid a large chunk of money — that money came from the high sign up fees. Some people were making 100’s of thousands a month — but the vast majority of that income came from the “customer acquisition bonus,” not from the pennies a month they made from each phone customer.
Fortunately with solar, there is plenty of money. We pay an average of $2,500 in total rewards per solar upgrade. With CREW, it is free to join and you get paid for two things — upgrading homes to solar and training others to do the same (or adding other value as we expand our products and services in the future).

CREW will never reward you for convincing a bunch of people to pay a high sign up fee to join.
