Founded in 2019, Credible Solar provides Texas residents and business owners with a number of home improvement solutions - solar power most prominently among them. Credible Solar is committed to helping clients take full advantage of all that solar energy has to provide, including utility bill savings, the federal tax credit, home value increases, and fighting climate change.
From initial consultation to interconnection with the utility grid, Credible Solar assists customers at every step of the solar adoption process:
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.
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.
Credible Solar is available in the following Texas cities:
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.
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.
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.
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.
