Find local solar companies


Search by city

There are now more than 6,000 active solar companies in the residential solar industry making it hard to find the best renewable energy installer to trust to reduce your utility bill.

As the largest solar company reviews website in the United States we have created a list ranking the best solar companies at the national, state and city levels.

These results and rankings are based purely on consumer reviews and are not influenced by any business relationships.

You can use the search functionality on the right hand side of this page to drill down to your city, or click on your state at the bottom of the list below to find the best solar panel companies in your state.

The solar companies below are the best of the best. Not only were they the highest rated installers in their city and state, but they have also made it be in the national top ten, a feat that takes an enormous dedication to customer service.

The best home solar contractors for 2018 - 2019 all:

  • Are local solar companies operating only in one state and family owned. This is in stark contrast to the low review scores recorded by national companies like Vivint Solar and Sunrun and shows that these smaller contractors are able to better manage customer service;
  • Sell premium solar products including high efficiency solar cells from premium solar panel manufacturers;
  • Focus on cash sales and solar loans rather than selling solar lease and PPA programs;
  • Focus more on straight grid connect solar systems rather than energy storage.

Longhorn Solar Review

Office location: Austin, TX 78758

After consulting with 3 other solar companies we decided on Longhorn for our solar needs. All the companies were in the ballpark when it came to pricing & warranty. We just felt more comfortable with Longhorn. The rep (Clinton Rarey) was very informative with the product and addressed all our questions and concerns so we decided to target 100% offset for our production. Installation was a piece of cake for the crew that came out to the house to do the installation. It was completed in approx. 4 hours, very professional. The 1st full month (Nov. 2018) of production we had a ~ $44.00 credit for our energy bill. 2nd month we had a ~ $35.00 credit for a total of ~ $ 80.00 credit. 3rd month we broke even. So, we haven't had an electric bill for the first 3 months of production and still have the ~ $80.00 credit. Can't wait to see how the summer time plays out. So far, the system is working as designed with no flaws. I would highly recommend Longhorn for anyone looking to go solar.

I researched several companies when we decided that solar would not only help with our electric bills but also increase the value of our house (we purchased our system, did not lease). We met with Jeff Homire of Harvest Power, who was very organized and low key in his approach. When we signed on with them they gave us a realistic time frame for installation, which was done in one day with no problems at all. We have had the system for seven months with no problems. I would highly recommend Jeff and Harvest Power.

NRG just completed a new roof and solar system installation for me and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out and the whole process. NRG did everything in a timely manner, always showed up when they were supposed to and completed everything they said they would. I was especially happy with my project coordinator, Tiffany !!!!! She was on top of things all the time and very helpful and prompt in responding to my questions.

We were referred to Jeff Godels by another sastisfied customer with rave reviews. Jeff was extremely professional and got back to us right away to set up appointment and each time we called him with more questions. He made sure we had a thorough understanding of the system and great follow through from initial contact all the way through installation and after. He and Renova made sure each step was easy.

I generally do not write reviews, but in here I am so impressed by James G from Freedom Solar that really want to express my thanks by writing this review. James Govea is a true gentleman; he not only ensured that I get the best deal, but also the best quality solar system. When I started researching for a solar system, James provided all the required details, but never tried to convince me by putting any extra pressure. He allowed me do my own research before we signed the agreement. James was extremely patient and was always available even for my trivial questions. I inquired with 4-5 solar installers, but no one could match James's professionalism. I will give 5 stars to James and hoping to have a 5 star service for the upcoming years.

My solar has been down for 6 days.
The installation was completed last October 2018. That's 4 months old!
I have called customer service 3 times and have yet to receive a phone call to address the problem and schedule a visit to repair that problem.
Very poor customer service.

We were in a peculiar situation. We sold a home with solar panels recently installed, under the premise that we could leave the panels on our old home and then remove them have them reinstalled on our newly built home. Unfortunately, during our building process the solar company that had installed our panels went under with no warning. Not completely surprising - we had had a terrible experience with them and their customer service after installation was awful. I called around to different solar companies asking if any of them would remove and reinstall our system. Some companies wouldn't do this since they were not the initial company who installed them. Other companies quoted me an insane amount of money to do this. I contacted Brandon at Mynt Solar and explained our situation to him. He was very empathetic and eager for us to have a good experience with solar. He and Nate worked with us to get our system removed and up and running at our new location. I was very impressed with the responsiveness and ease of working with Mynt Solar - a complete 180 from our last company. They answered our questions and kept us informed of what was going on. They also charged us a very competitive price that no one else could beat. We really appreciate them helping us out in our unique situation and wish we could've used them with the initial install. We highly recommend Mynt Solar.
