Firstly, no solar contractors can pay to get listed at the top of our search results.
The order of our list of best solar installers is displayed based on a formula balancing reviews number and reviews score only from the last two years. If a company has a lot of reviews and a higher average reviews score, but is below another company in the list, it is because most of their reviews are old and the company above them has more reviews at a better average reviews score in the last two years (even if overall they have fewer reviews or a lower all time average reviews score).
We show all solar energy contractors that have received reviews of solar panel installation work they have done in Washoe Valley even if they don't have an office in Washoe Valley. There are a lot of renewable energy companies in the solar industry in the United States that service areas in which they don't have offices via contract installation teams. Some of these companies receive a lot of complaints (see the big national installers reviews like Vivint Solar, Sunrun and Solar City), but others have really good reviews and so we don't exclude them from our top solar companies lists. They often bring price competition to smaller cities where the local solar companies are so busy they need to put their prices up. It is up to you how much weight you put on a local office when choosing between solar companies.

We interviewed three different solar installation companies and found Great Basin Solar to be the most prepared and qualified company to design and install our residential PV system. Travis Miller spent significant time to move along NV Energy to complete the process with their meters installation. The installation went very smooth and efficiently and now we are currently producing about 14 kW a day (winter days) from our 3.57 kW system. As an alternative energy architect, I would strongly encourage anyone contemplating to install PV Solar to DO IT with Great Basin Solar.... read more

This company was head and shoulder above Solar City. Their install is visually appealing and they offer a variety of products that work well if you want your solar panels to work for the long term. They have minor hiccups in communication between themselves, but they were timely and motivated to complete the solar installation in a timely manner.... read more

I have an all electric house and was contacted by Go Solar on solar panels. I was interested in solar panels. No one came to my house to sit down and talk to me about solar panels and what to expect. No one did run down on my electric bills. They just showed up to install my solar panels and than wasn't able to install them that day but did install some stuff. I had to contact my home builder because go solar couldn't get that part done themselves to figure out where my joists were to be able to install the panels on my roof. I was able to have the home builder get go solar the information they needed. After the panels were installed and set up by the power company my first power bill doubled. I was told to expect a service charge of $8 only for my bills with paying over $25,000 in cash for solar panels. My first bill doubled to just under $500. I contacted go solar to say something must be wrong with the solar panels. No one came out for months. I even had the power company come check their meter. This is a new home. Here I'am 14 months later and I still have $300 & $400 power bills during the winter. Solar panels are not for my house, I keep telling the solar company this over and over again for 14montgs now and they keep ignoring me and my requests. I save maybe $20 a few months out if the year, if I save $360 a year I would be lucky at that rate it will take me 70 years to make my money back and in 70 years I will be dead. Do not use this company they get their money and than they don't care about the customer after that. SOLAR IS A RIP OFF!!... read more

I love Tesla. I own their stock. I believe they're changing the world for the better and I want them to win. In the end, I hope this critical review will benefit them and their cause.Pros:1. The pricing was greatThings I believed were Pros at the time of purchase:2. The skirting and low profile install seemed aesthetically preferable (see notes below)3. The warranty seemed great (I didn't read the reviews on this site from people trying to get warranty work..which have since changed my mind)Cons:1. No one pointed out that the panels would not be black on black. All of their marketing material shows black on black panels. I was very taken back when, upon confirming myself very late in the contract process, they said they could not provide black on black panels. I believe they would never have told me this before they were on my house had I not brought it up.2. They were very good at saying what they needed to say to make the sale even though they wouldn't be able to honor the promises/expectations they were creating. For instance:- We needed to hit an install deadline for our state incentives. Tesla told us they could install within a month of signing the contract. Several weeks after signing the contract, they were still unable to provide an estimated installation date and said this was normal (even though I had previously been told that I would have scheduled install date within a week of signing the contract).- Looking at several photos from their installs, the panels are rarely installed in the appropriate place to create the symmetry required for a favorable aesthetic. Their designs showed my panels would also be mounted poorly. When I pointed this out, they said these were just the remote drawings and the guys on the site would do what needed to be done to make it beautiful. They said they wanted me to love it. [Great, I thought]. Upon further reflection and reading other peoples' experiences, I think I was being naive. I suspect my panels would likely have been staggered with inconsistent spacing between each other and my roof edges...just like their design showed and just like the photos of their other installs.- The sales person said they would request that the conduit be run through the attic, such that I wouldn't have ugly conduit tubes going over the peak of my roof. Then later, the designer/engineer couldn't figure out how to add this in.- The sales person was super responsive, right up until the sale was made. Then everything ground to a halt. Then my sales person was transferred to the vehicle department, before anyone was available to replace them, and then a week later, the person who replaced them did not understand the urgency of my situation (which was the same as everyone else buying solar in my state). She told me I should expect my install to be completed within many months (rather than one month) and that my project was moving faster than she had ever seen before (we were crawling or stopped). Basically, Tesla didn't have any installers.. and they were trying to contract it out, but they couldn't locate anyone who was available to perform the install because they were calling on companies that had their own work lined up. I emailed her boss and called and spoke to other people, but it seemed there was no one there to provide any assistance other than my new sales contact who was telling me to forget everything I was told and not to expect them to deliver in a viable time frame.3. Their 15yr roof quote was more than double other quotes from local companies that included a 50yr warranty backed by the manufacturer. Moreover, they wanted to use water and ice guard on the whole roof, which I've since learned does not allow your roof to breath and will likely last 15 yrs but will cause major problems in our climate in a 50yr time span.I fired Tesla and found a local installer who had a Certainteed system with a comparable warranty installed within a few weeks. It is more beautiful and has a similar warranty, but backed by a 350 yr old company. I paid 10% more money. The moment I fired Tesla, I was contacted by a customer support team that said they could fix all of my problems. Unfortunately, I had ran out the clock trying to give them every last minute (literally) before I switched providers. Had I known cancelling the project would have inspired possible support, I would have done it a week sooner.... read more
