SolarReviews helps you find the best solar installer by sharing below the largest collection of consumer solar company reviews of solar panel companies currently operating in Hawaii. Some of these solar companies have also agreed to supply live pricing through the site if you request a solar quote, by entering your zip code above.
There are now more solar power companies operating in Hawaii than ever before and more choice of solar products and solar installation companies to speak to about a solar system. The solar tax credit, great long term savings, net metering and an abundance of zero down solar lease and solar loan products are making home solar more popular.
Right across the solar industry in the United States consumer reviews have shown that local installers enjoy the highest levels of customer satisfaction. The large corporate solar companies such as Vivint Solar, Solar City Tesla and Sunrun have much lower reviews scores than local solar companies.

Daryl stood out early when I began searching for a local PV installer. His friendly honesty, willingness to answer all of my many questions and scenarios in a timely fashion, documentation and excellent graphical modeling of his proposal all exceeded everyone else I contacted in the industry. His proposal came first, was the strongest to meet my needs, came organized with a realistic annual production model and attractive graphics of my proposed panel layout. He even graphically modeled my equipment rack with batteries. Few people, even fewer contractors, can meet my level of attention to detail. Daryl exceeded my expectations in every way. He used the highest quality products, used the best installation techniques, took great care of my existing masonry tile roofing, and skirted all of my panels nicely to meet local HOA requirements and then some. Speaking of the HOA, he navigated their strict requirements with ease. I never had to get involved.
He is one of Maui's authorized Tesla dealers and I went with a Tesla PowerWall backup which operates flawlessly and looks incredible. When the install was complete Daryl gave me everything I needed to register my panels for their extended warranty. Even with the install complete he answers questions quickly and remains engaged in the operation and production of the system. During the bid process, before I selected Pacific Energy, one of the largest installers on Maui told me I'd need to place a deposit in order to have any of my questions answered or to have my proposed layout modeled, not so with Daryl. At least 3 of my neighbors are looking to have Daryl do projects on their homes, both new installs and existing system upgrades.... read more

Thiago stopped by my house early 2018 offering solar, the bills were pretty high with Eversource so I decided to move forward. It's been a great experience so far. Thiago took care of everything for me, updating me periodically on the process. I've had my system turned on for almost a year and saving a good amount. Even recommended Thiago to a good friend who now has solar as well.... read more

So far the process has been good. I wish I had put them on sooner so I could see them working in the summer time because there output has been underwhelming so far we have used more electricity than we have made. Our heat is gas so our winter use of electricity should be the same as the summer.

This was probably the worst decision I have made in my 30 yrs. of home ownership. Promises were made of savings in the amount of 4 cents per Kilowatt hour on a 13000 Kw system. That would amount to a savings of $500.00 per year. The salesman guaranteed us a Return on Investment in 3 years since it was a 1500.00 pay out for this specific system.
I immediately knew things were off on our second monthly cycle. The savings just were not there as he said they would be. I started doing my own research and soon discovered several false statements had been made by the salesman about my utilities prices and fees. I discovered I was one of the first customers in the PPL utility area and Sunrun was not familiar with their procedures.
I made the Salesman aware of the issues and all he could say was, "well, at least you are making clean energy in a coal state. I told him that was a totally unacceptable response and he said, "some states don't charge all those fees and to wait until the system has a year to run its course."
I called Customer Service to see what I could do about the situation and was given the same answer; I could do nothing until a year was up and run a Savings analysis to see where I stood.
Fast forward 1 year and I had an analysis completed. The results were as I expected. The analysis showed a savings of $60.00. That did not even cover that year's portion of the initial payment so I was actually out $15.00. I also had losses associated with my Utilities buy back program which I was told would happen at the end of my year. Well it didn't. PPL bought my excess energy at the time of the year I am storing the most energy (end of May). Sun is high that time of year and you are not using your heat or air conditioner so you are banking the most.
When the utility bought it back, they only paid me 8 cents per Kw even though I had to pay Sunrun10 cents for it. Then I had to re-buy the power in Nov. and Dec. when my system was not producing well. I had to buy it back at 8 cents plus 4 cent transmission fee. That was another loss. Sunrun stated they would not consider my initial payments in their analysis and stated they were not responsible for every customers unique situations or buy back procedures associated with specific utilities even though their own salesman told me how the system /reimbursement with my utility would work.
They stated they were sure the mistakes made by the salesman were honest mistakes if he actually made them and stated they were sure he had done nothing malicious. I asked what good that does me and they just continued to state I was showing savings and nothing was going to change.
All in all I was expecting a 10,000 savings over 20 years and now I stare at a potential $1500.00 loss. Even more upsetting is when we go to sell the house we will have to disclose all of this to any potential buyers.
There system runs/works just as described and the installers were awesome but they were subcontractors and were not direct employees of the company... read more

We have had our panels for less than 6 years. In October they started shorting out. They are now entirely broken and do not work at all. We have called several times and been told they are aware of the problem. The panels they installed have a known defect. When we ask when they will fix them per our lease agreement, they cannot respond. They have yet to schedule repairs, our panels have not produced any electricity in over a month but they still continue to bill us. Do not do business with this company.... read more
