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.

Primo Solar Company

5.00

Office location: Austin, TX 78744

It was a pleasure having Freedom Solar providing me with a high quality residential solar system and seamless primo service from start to finish. In fear of leaving someone out I will not mention all of the wonderful personnel at Freedom Solar who were part of my experience, but they were all great to deal with, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. They were caring of my concerns regarding the layout of the system and did a great job. I highly recommend them ! Ruben

Awesome, informative & thorough

5.00

Office location: Hayward, CA 94545

I had three solar companies come out in one day to pitch their companies and Robert from Semper Solaris was the only one that gave a presentation from an education point of view and not a sales point of view. Robert was very knowledgeable and helpful and did not try to upsell us. He made sure we understood everything we needed to understand and didn’t get too far in the weeds with information. The timeline he gave me in his presentation was exactly on and he was realistic and made sure everything went smoothly and according to plan. He was there to answer any questions I had after the presentation and after the installation came out to make sure that we understood what was happening and answer any follow-up questions that we might’ve had with the new equipment and help us with our new equipment. I would recommend Semper Solaris completely and, tell my friends they should use them I am that satisfied.

Carolina Energy Conservation was the company that installed my solar panels. Eddie, Josh, and Tito were the installers. Eddie was the leader and displayed leadership qualities of many much older. Josh has many of the same qualities and could have been the leader. I am sure will be soon. Tito was always busy seemingly knowing what to do and how to do it. My questions, no matter how elementary, were answered by any of the guys with comprehension and clarity. The job went flawlessly and the crew cleaned-up every day. Carolina Energy Conservation is a class act. From Paul in sales, to contact person Brian, to the on site crew, Communications was a priority among all those involved with my job. They are a good company with good workers and a good product.
