Our CEO gives his thoughts on what criteria you should use to select your solar company

Unbiased Reviews

No company can pay to alter the reviews or review scores shown on our site. Some companies pay us a small, fixed referral fee if you request a quote but we never earn any commission from sales. Any editorial content is not influenced by financial relationships.

Why is your choice of solar company so important?

There are two reasons why the solar panel installation company you choose for residential solar power systems is more important than most other consumer decisions you make. First, solar panel systems for homes are expensive. The average cost of a 7 kW system in 2021 is $20,000 and drops to around $14,800 after claiming the 26% federal solar tax credit.

Second, solar panels last a long time. Over the 25-30 year life of your solar system, you will require technical support from your installer. If you choose a cheap or low-quality installer, there is a good chance you will be left without this support. Hundreds of solar companies get into the business each year, but hundreds also fail each year. Usually, it is the cheaper ones that implode, as their service load increases from systems they have already installed.
