Who are the 10 best solar energy companies in Minnesota based on solar company reviews?

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 Minnesota. 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 Minnesota 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.

MN Solar installed a 18kw ground mount system beginning in November. During the install there were issues with weather as well as a problem with the permit due to the inspection company. MN Solar worked diligently through these obstacles and installed a great product. MN solar was always very responsive to all of our questions and concerns. I Highly recommend these people for your solar needs.

Office location: Hudson, WI 54016

This was a very positive experience. The entire team -- engineer, office manager, electrician -- was courteous and informative. People showed up when they said they would and kept to the installation timeline, which was exceedingly helpful. Energy Concepts offered excellent support for funding through state and federal programs, an added benefit. We were also pleased with the design elements, efficiency in working through tasks, training on the installed system, and the pleasant communication with everyone involved. We recommend them highly.

I have given Jeff's name & phone number to several people who have seen my panels and have ask about them. I am very pleased with the performance of the system. As of today the system is about 300 KWS ahead of the estimates for 2017. Zenergy has very helpful and courteous people working for them. The panels were installed in less than a week. Jeff has been extremely patient with all my phone calls to him and with all my questions.

We hired Cedar Creek Energy to engineer and install solar panels on our home. Every person we dealt with throughout the process was client-focused and extremely responsive. Our solar array has already cut our electric bill by over 80%. We highly, strongly recommend you talk to Cedar Creek Energy if you are looking at going solar. They are a top-notch company!

SolarWorld Americas Inc.


We got a good product for a fair price, but endured delays and unwelcome surprises along the way. Producing our own power with solar is great, and we really recommend installing a system to anyone considering it.

Detailed Review:
Our contract was signed with IPS on 9/27/16. We were led to believe by the salesperson and the project manager that they didn’t see a problem completing the project in 2016, possibly by Thanksgiving, so that we could get our federal solar tax rebate for tax year 2016. Materials were delivered to our home on 12/22/16, construction began on 12/30/16, our system went live on 2/24/17, and onsite work was completed on 2/27/17. Our monitoring did not go live until 3/9/17, and we did not receive our owner’s manual until 3/23/17.

After the contract was signed, local building codes necessitated that the size of our system be cut in half. IPS treated us more than fairly, giving us a good price on the downsized system. We were grateful for how they handled the change.

We discovered after the project was underway that IPS contracted the work at our site to be done by Premise Inc. This was a surprise to us, as we expected that the work would be done by IPS employees. The Premise installers were always respectful of our home, cleaned up after themselves very well, and seemed to do quality work. At times our project sat idle during optimal weather conditions, awaiting availability of installers. At one point in the process, we were told that Premise’s “schedule is super packed” and that they might have been hoping our permit process would take longer (i.e, in order to fit the installers’ schedule better). This left a poor impression.

Communication was sparse, especially during delays. At times, we received conflicting information from Premise and from IPS. This disconnect was confusing, and left us wondering which information was correct. Several times, we initiated contact ourselves to inquire as to the reason for the various periods of inactivity, and to request status updates.

In the end, we are pleased with our solar system, the installation of it and the price. We would have preferred to have had better communication and fewer delays.

If anyone is in the market for any size solar system, commercial or residential, Chris Jarosch and Carr Creek Electric Service are the only company you need.

If you want knowledge, quality components, professional service before, during, and after installation, then Chris Jarosch is your answer. As a retired biomedical engineer, I can personally and professionally vouch for Chris' abilities and professional standards.
