Solar Optimum Frequently Asked Questions

How does going solar with Solar Optimum work?

The first important step is setting up a consultation with one of our Energy Consultants. For convenience, we offer both in-home appointments and phone consultations based on the customers' availability and request. It's vital that we understand the customer's energy goals and current (and future) electricity needs in order for us to create a customized solar system and provide a quote.

How much does a solar energy system from Solar Optimum cost?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer for this because the cost of the system depends on many variables like electrical usage, energy goals, product selection, utility company, etc.

What solar panels does Solar Optimum use in its installations?

Solar Optimum only installs tier-one, industry-leading panels, inverters, racking, battery storage, and solar products from the best in the industry that have the best warranty. This includes Panasonic Solar, LG Solar, Q-Cell, Enphase, Unirac and Tesla Powerwall to name a few.

How long will it take before the solar panels are installed?

In the best case scenario, a solar system can be installed and turned on in around 90 days. However, many variables are involved in getting the solar system installed and turned on. Delays in turning the system on may depend on the utility company. Some jurisdictions take longer than others. 

Does Solar Optimum require a contract?

Yes.

Do the solar panels work when there is a power outage?

Solar panels do not work if there is a power outage. The solution for this is the home battery back-up that we offer from Tesla Powerwall. If there is a power outage, energy is pulled from the battery.

We searched for a solar company for over two years. We listened to each companies pitch, researched their product lines but always were left feeling uneasy with either the small print or the companies reviews. Enter Solar Optimum. We found them to be honest, upright, straightforward with no hidden costs or other issues. We signed the contract and they immediately went to work. Within a very short time we had the panels installed and working perfectly. They even pulled the permits from the city and met with the city inspector. Over a year later everything is still working properly. We are saving thousands a year not paying the electric company, we also acquired an electric car this year and have since eliminated our gasoline bill too. I highly recommend this company, you will be pleased and you will save money.

Since Solar Optimum installed our panels over 2 years ago, our electric bill has been $2.20 a month (the cost of hooking us up to the LADWP grid). In addition, the panels have been so efficient, that I received a few hundred dollars in credits for over producing electricity last year. I run my air-conditioner for at least 6 months of the year. I am very happy with their service, with their follow-up to questions I have, and with the stability of the company. Once the installation was completed (which always takes longer than they say, with any solar company because of the number of permits and LADWPs lag time in reviewing permissions), and the monitoring system was installed, and we were hooked up into the grid, you can forget about it. All we have to do is rinse the panels off with a hose about every 3 to 6 months, depending on whether there is any rain. I highly recommend this company.

Solar Optimum installed panels with Enphase energy inverters in August, 2016. They were great all the way through the process. Customer service representatives have always been very nice and helpful. Their price was very reasonable. The system has worked without any problems ever since the installation! And I am proud of going Green and offsetting my carbon footprint on our planet Earth!

I had been looking into Solar for many years, either the cost of or the panels efficiency didn't add unto make it work for us. Recently I was roofing in a section of a tile roof to accommodate Solar Panels for a customer. I asked who was doing his system? He advised he had gotten MANY estimates and that Solar Optimum offered the best package. After his installation I checked back with him to see how his experience had been. He advised he was very happy with the entire process and gave them a great review. I set up to get an estimate, Sean was totally helpful to us explaining the program, analyzing our needs and presented a great package. Two years later I am very happy to report that Our System is working perfectly, we get refunds from our electricity company every statement. Overall experience was Awesome!

Solar optimum has been a work in progress for me. At first they were incredibly informative and easy to work with. There were a few minor design tweaks here and there, regarding how the shade around our house would be affecting the solar panels. We were able to figure out the best solution. Moving forward, after the design was completed, it took them an unreal amount of time to get the permits for the work. I had emailed multiple people in different departments, asking for someone to give me any updates on my system, and why it was taking so long to get approved/installed. Apparently someone had dropped the ball on actually filing for ALL the necessary permits, thus pushing the job completion date farther behind. I unfortunately had to call the city building department myself to get answers and relay them to solar optimum before they would listen to me. Their excuse was "we didn't know Pasadena had this 'extra' permit needed to complete the work." Once that was all sorted out, the work began. As far as the actual work of installing the panels, they did an outstanding job! Completed the work incredibly fast, and left no mess. Since then, they have been easy to get a hold of whenever I've had any questions regarding my system, and how to properly monitor and maintain it. I only gave this review 4 stars because of the lack of urgency and professionalism during the permit process stage.

I went with for Solar Optimum after much research, and many quotes. Glad i did. Prices were competitive, but service was what differentiated them from the others. I at least 4 conversations with one of their energy specialist about sizing the system and equipment specs before pulling the trigger. We ended up with panels and a home battery. Power bill has all but vanished. The battery kicked in, just as it was supposed to during a blackout. While our neighbors were in the dark, we had all our essentials running just fine. I'd highly recommend this outfit if considering a solar and/or battery system. Very satisfied customer!

When we began our bidding process for a solar install, Sean at Solar Optimum answered our detailed questions, projected energy production estimates (which now installed are spot on!) and assured us he would see the process through the labyrinth of LADWP approval process and tax benefits. We discussed various panel options, the pros and cons of each choice, and felt we made an informed choice thanks to his thoroughness. As our former home and now a rental property, we wanted to project out a predictable cost for electricity, now and into the future for our tenants. Many thanks to the Solar Optimum team for delivering on their promises.

The technicians were accommodating. They answered all our questions and worked with our schedule.

I had my solar system installed by Solar Optimum. Prior to choosing them, I met with 3 other solar companies and boy, am I glad I went with Solar Optimum! 2 out of the 3 other solar companies told me they can't install a solar system for me because my roof was too steep, the 3rd company told me yes, they could do it, but it will cost me an arm and a leg. When I finally called Solar Optimum, I was immediately impressed by how friendly and knowledgeable my sales rep was, plus he was able to give me a great price. Installation was done professionally where the installers paid close attention to detail. I was so happy with Solar Optimum that I recommended them to my sister in law and my best friend. If you are looking for superb service with great price, I highly recommend you give Solar Optimum a call and believe me, you will not regret it!

I installed 25 Panasonic solar panels with Enphase energy inverters in August, 2019. Solar Optimum was great all the way through the process. They were quick to respond with all communications. They quickly got the permits from the city. The price was very competitive. The installation was very quick (took 3 days). The only issue found by the city inspector was to change the labels on the electrical boxes. The system has worked great without any problems!

They made the process of getting solar panels very easy. I don't think about it now, except that I have a much lighter conscience about our pollution footprint. Anyone with a sunny roof should at least call them and check out how much it would cost for their specific situation. In our case, we pay less overall on energy now (monthly bill from the city plus the monthly loan payment for the solar panels) than we used to pay (when we just had a monthly bill from the city). The only reason I don't give 5 stars is that our city dragged their feet on giving final approval to activate the system, and solar optimum didn't follow up quite as attentively as they could have. Once I called about the delay, they got the approval and activation done quickly.

Solar Optimum worked closely with us through a lengthy approval process with the City Design Board, due to the house being on the registry. It was the first time a registry home had solar installed and they made sure the visual integrity of the house and neighborhood were preserved according to the required standards. They went above and beyond anything I've ever seen from a company and we appreciate that effort very much. Solar Optimum has been helpful, friendly and responsive to us since our install. We recommend them for anyone looking for an honest partner in taking the solar leap.

If you're in need for solar....I would so recommend Solar Optimum. These guys are clean, first and efficient! They gave me a timeline and they finished before they said. Super excited to say that we picked the right company.

They did a great job. They kept their promises from day one and kept me informed with every step of the process. Every person I had contact with was nice, and I really like my consultant, Alex. I asked him a lot of questions during the process and he never failed to answer me. They are all very professional and the Panasonic panels they installed are perfect. It's definitely a great company to work with and I am happy to give them five stars.

From beginning to end it was a seamless installation. I also so appreciate the after installation checking that everysting is functionung the way it should. During power outages that was so re-assuring. This is a caring and good company!

There are some shady operators in the solar world, but these guys are the exact opposite. They were straightforward, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. We met with three other solar companies and these guys were the best deal, but this definitely wasn't a case of you get what you pay for. Sean came out and went over everything with us and answered all questions. He was great. After we signed up, everything went smoothly (except it took a little time for the city to send people out to approve the permits, but that's not Solar Optimum's fault). All of the workers were nice and answered any more questions that came up. Honestly, this was the easiest project/upgrade we've ever done to our house in eight years. It's been a year and a half since the installation and we've had no issues. We're on track to have made all of our money back in less than six years. If you have decent sun on your roof, solar is a complete no brainer: you save money and help the planet. So get solar and use Solar Optimum. We recommended them to three friends who all used them and were happy with the experience. I'll keep recommending them to anyone who is thinking of getting solar.

Been very happy with the service provided by Solar Optimum. I’ve had this system for about two years now and it was installed professionally and they did a great job overall. I have also referred my friends to them and I know they are very satisfied too. My electricity bill has been $0 since the time this system was installed. In summary, am a very happy customer.

Solar Optimum was able to seamlessly integrate an existing solar system with their new additional panels to bring our house up to full capacity. Thanks!!

I had solar panels installed last May by solar optimum. I had previously had meetings with two other companies before choosing them, and I’m glad I did. Once everything was settled I was up and running in no time. Super happy with them and would highly recommend them. Kevin

We had Solar installed at our home January 2019 and couldn't be more pleased with Solar Optimum! Everyone whom we have had contact with (sales/installation/customer service) has been extremely professional and top notch! They care about their customer's satisfaction and we recommend them to all our friends without hesitation!

Solar Optimum did a great job with our home solar system. We purchased in 2018 and Sean was our sales rep. They were on time and on schedule and Sean was a pleasure to deal with. He was very thorough, explained the different options, and straight forward with the pricing. They even noticed when my system wasn't transmitting energy production and contacted me. They are a great company to work with. There is always someone you can talk to and they have great customer service. Overall this was a great experience.

Solar Optimum competed with other companies to get my business. They offered the best equipment and roof warranty out of all the companies that I researched. They also helped me get the best available solar energy loan for my system. Once I was approved for the loan, they installed the equipment and had my system up and operational really fast. I recently had issues with my home modem and they offered to upgrade my monitoring equipment for free so that I could continue to monitor my system's performance. Very friendly and professional staff. I highly recommend Solar Optimum.

My folks were just beginning to look at solar companies and a company called us. So we had them come and give quote. They gave us a “deal” but I felt a bit uneasy. I went online to search for more information on solar and found Energysage (that reminds me that I should give them a 5-star review, too!) which not only gave an option to get quotes, but also gave a range for how much we should be paying for solar in CA. The “deal” we were offered was overpriced. When the quotes came in on Energysage we selected Solar Optimum, not only because they had a good price, but also because they were responsive and addressed all of our questions timely. The installation also went well as they did all the permit work required. I highly recommend Solar Optimum if you want to be solar happy and save money!

Solar Optimum did an excellent job installing our solar system! They are by far the best solar company in California, and we highly recommend you call them if you are considering getting a solar system on your home. Alex took the time to explain and educate us about which system would be the best solution for our needs, and we couldn't be more pleased with how he treated us. The quality of their work is impeccable, and they are just good people overall. Five stars from us!

The company was easy to work with, straightforward, and customer-oriented. The installation they did for my unit was quick and painless. I have already refer them to most of my friends/family/neighbors.

My wife and I did a lot of research on solar companies and interviewed 3 that we narrowed down. The first thing we noticed with Solar Optimum is the competence and courtesy shown by our initial contact - Mark H. Every employee at Solar Optimum showed that same level of professionalism. Not pushy at all. Very knowledgeable. Answered all questions and addressed every concern. On installation day we had a crew arrive who was punctual, concerned about our schedule, and coordinated the installation with us at every step. They even replaced broken roof tiles that were away from the area of installation. Solar Optimum uses Enphase Inverter which is the best in the market. They provide a 25 year warranty and the follow-up has been excellent. We would (and have) recommend Solar Optimum to friends and family.
