The Good

  • Full-Service Solar Energy Provider
  • Referral Program
  • High-Quality Equipment

Full-Service Solar Energy Provider

From initial consultation to interconnection with the utility grid, Credible Solar assists customers at every step of the solar adoption process:

  1. Initial Consultation — A Credible Solar energy consultant will work with customers to develop a tailor-made solar proposal for the home or business.
  2. Energy Evaluation — The company uses software to analyze climate, roof size, and energy usage to create a custom solution for each client that maximizes the system’s energy production.
  3. Financing Approval — If the solar array makes financial sense, the client gets approved for a solar program with Credible Solar.
  4. Site Survey — The Credible Solar team visits the site in-person (following all COVID-19 protocols) and designs the physical layout of the solar PV system. They then send this design off to the city for permitting.
  5. Solar Installation — The installation process begins, and usually only takes a day to complete.
  6. Interconnection — Following a final inspection of the finished system, Credible Solar will work with the utility provider to connect the solar energy system to the power grid.

Referral Program

Following successful installation of a Credible Solar solar panel system, customers are encouraged to download the Credible Solar app, which not only allows them to monitor the performance of their system, but also to submit referrals. Per the solar provider’s social media accounts, Credible Solar is prepared to pay between $500 and $1,000 for every referral that becomes a new customer.

High-Quality Equipment

The solar company builds solar panel systems with some of the best solar equipment on the market. The company uses micro inverters from both Enphase and SolarEdge, widely regarded as the two leaders in solar inverter technology. Credible Solar also employs a variety of solar cell models, including solar cells from LONGi, which average a 19.1 energy efficiency, come with a 25-year output warranty and a 10-year materials warranty.

Customers also have the option to add backup power to their solar systems in the form of a solar battery. Credible Solar has partnered with leading backup solar energy providers like Tesla Powerwall and LG Chem. These devices harness excess energy from the solar panel system that can be used at night or in the event of a power outage.

The Bad

  • Only Available in Texas
  • Undisclosed Financing Options
  • Undisclosed Warranty
  • No NABCEP Certification

Only Available in Texas

Credible Solar is available in the following Texas cities:

  • Frisco
  • Little Elm
  • Odessa
  • Midland
  • Dallas
  • Denton
  • Killeen
  • Irving
  • Kyle

While this area represents a large population, locally focused companies like Credible Solar may find themselves at a disadvantage compared to larger, more nationally known solar companies with a more established brand. Credible Solar also operates in a highly competitive residential solar market. Leveraging and promoting verified Credible Solar reviews from actual customers is an effective way for the company to distinguish itself from the competition.

Undisclosed Financing Options

While Credible Solar will likely disclose to customers all the financing options available to them, the terms of these options are not immediately disclosed on the company website. Credible Solar makes a point of mentioning the benefits of solar array ownership, which is only possible through direct purchase and solar loan financing; but alternative options like solar leases and power purchase agreements are not explicitly mentioned.

Undisclosed Warranty

Credible Solar also mentions warranties as one of the benefits of solar PV system ownership. However, the company fails to disclose important details of these warranties, particularly the company’s workmanship or service warranty, which protects the system against installation errors.

No NABCEP Certification

Credible Solar does not appear to have a certification from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). This organization authors some of the most rigorous certification exams in the solar industry, and promotes best practices in solar installation.

The Bottom Line

For Texas homeowners and business owners, Credible Solar is worth looking into. The company provides a thorough evaluation of the home, a custom-made solar solution, and a helpful mobile app post-installation.

That said, customers are also encouraged to compare Credible Solar’s financing options with other companies serving the area, as these likely won’t be disclosed until after the initial consultation.

When I first spoke with Edgar from credibles solar he seemed very eager to get my business and assured me that he could give me a great price, after speaking with three of his competitors I thought I would wait a couple of years, but Edgar and Leo really explain everything to me and gain my trust there was so knowledgeable can confident and sure of themselves and their company and it wasn't just talk they backed up everything they said it was one of the best experiences of my life dealing with sales people that actually backed up what they said they were going to do so like the name says they are very credible.

Edgar and Leonardo provided great customer service and was very knowledgeable of the products and services rendering. The service provided by their company is beating my current energy provider. I would definitely recommend their products and services to anyone who is seeking to switch over to solar! Great customer service!
