With two locations in Meridian and Twin Falls, Idaho, EGT has been serving Idaho residents since 2010. The company offers a wide array of tier one solar panels and inverters and competitive rates on its solar loan financing options. EGT solar is a four-time “Top 500 Solar Contractor,” according to Solar Power World Magazine.
EGT Solar conducts a thorough, five-step process to help its customers go solar:
EGT Solar only installs top-of-the-line solar equipment into its solar array systems. Although the company may implement many types of solar cell modules and inverters into its systems, the company for sure uses the SolarEdge micro inverter and solar panels from the following brands:
Each of these solar panel brands is considered to rank among the best in the industry for energy efficiency, solar output, performance and equipment warranty (25 years), and temperature coefficient.
EGT Solar has been named a top 500 solar contractor by Solar Power World Magazine every year from 2014 to 2019. This designation is awarded to solar companies that install a significant amount of solar energy within their service area. Since its founding in 2010, EGT Solar has installed more than 4,000 kilowatts of residential solar energy, which represents hundreds of individual installations across the Gem State.
In addition to cash purchase, EGT Solar allows customers to finance their solar energy system through a solar loan. With rates ranging between 2.99 and 6.99 percent annually, EGT Solar’s third-party financing partnerships carry options that will fit to almost any budget.
EGT’s service area is limited to the state of Idaho; however, given that residential solar in Idaho did not become viable until 2009 (a year before EGT’s founding), the state represents a golden opportunity for residential solar adoption. That said, many companies, including some of the solar industry’s leading installers, have taken notice. In order for local companies like EGT to distinguish themselves from brands with national recognition, promoting verified EGT Solar reviews from actual customers can be an effective strategy.
All of EGT’s solar panel installations come with a 10-year workmanship warranty, meaning if any component of the system — inverter, panel, roof mount, etc. — malfunctions due to an installation error within the first 10 years of operation, EGT Solar will service or replace that component for free.
That said, many leading companies attach a 25-year or even a 30-year workmanship warranty to their solar energy systems, which are designed to either match or outlive the expected 25-year lifespan of the system, rather than cover just the first 10 years.
EGT Solar does not offer customers a solar lease or power purchase agreement (PPA) option — though, readers should note that this trend is common to any solar company that operates exclusively in Idaho. Both leases and PPAs give customers a low-cost alternative to panel ownership through zero upfront costs and a monthly fee that is often lower, or at least increases at a slower rate than traditional electricity costs.
EGT Solar does not appear to have any industry-recognized awards or certifications. For example, some leading companies claim membership with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), an organization that promotes solar adoption from a legislative standpoint; leading companies may also seek certification from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), which upholds industry standards and best practices among solar installers and contractors.
EGT was founded in 2010 with the mission to be Idaho’s largest and most trusted local solar energy services company. At that time, Idaho’s solar industry was a mere 58 total installations! This was due in part to Idaho’s low utility rates and the overall high cost of solar components at that time. We knew with certainty both of these factors would change and create a booming solar industry here in Idaho. Eight years later Idaho is one of the top 3 fastest growing solar markets in the United States, one of the fastest projected rising utility cost states, and solar components are at an all-time low cost. The future for solar in Idaho is very bright!
EGT Solar is proud to be a local Idaho-owned solar company that truly keeps Idaho residents' money in Idaho and strives to sell by educating our potential clients. EGT Solar offers the most comprehensive options for clients, as we believe solar is never a "one size fits all model." Our custom approach allows clients to explore all system styles to ensure the investment in solar will be the smartest investment they've made for their home or business.
