Founded in 2021, Entrust Solar is a Florida-based solar sales company dedicated to "[enabling] homeowners to make educated decisions about energy solutions with integrity and service." Although the florida-based company does not appear to directly install residential solar panel systems, it does use state of the art technology to design highly efficient solar panel systems, and has partnered with a network of reputable installers to bring those designs to life.

The Good

  • Dependable Solar Installer Network
  • 25-Year Warranties
  • $0 Out of Pocket Financing

Dependable Solar Installer Network

Entrust Solar has partnered with a number of installing and financing companies within the solar industry with established reputations. Many of which have even been vetted and reviewed on Best Company. These companies include the following:

  • SunnyMac — residential and commercial solar provider licensed in six US states
  • GreenBrilliance — NABCEP-certified installer of American-made solar products
  • Fastrac Energy Services — Texas-based solar provider with energy storage upgrades
  • Castaways Energy — NABCEP-certifed SunPower authorized dealer
  • Solean Energy — solar installer and warranty transfer specialist
  • EmPower Energy Solutions — solar installer with cash, loan, PPA, and lease financing options
  • GoodLeap — home efficiency upgrade expert, including solar, HVAC, roofing, and more
  • Sunnova — leading solar and battery installer available in 39 US states
  • Sunlight Financial — solar financier trusted by more than 150,000 industry professionals

25-Year Warranties

In addition to warranties provided by the equipment manufacturers and installers, Entrust Solar provides customers with its own 25-year warranty on all solar energy systems. 

$0 Out of Pocket Financing

Through Entrust Solar's financing partnerships, qualifying homeowners can own their own PV system for zero money out of pocket. This financing method allows homeowners to take full advantage of the Federal Solar Tax Credit, as well as other state and federal rebates and incentives without a down payment.

The Bad

  • Not a Direct Installer
  • No NABCEP-Certification
  • No Lease or PPA

Not a Direct Installer

As mentioned above, Entrust Solar is not a direct solar installer, but rather a facilitating company between solar customers and installing companies. For this reason, the homeowner experience is bound to vary depending on which solar installer has been selected to fulfill the agreed upon design.

Each solar company is unique in the products it uses, the system upgrades it provides (e.g. solar energy storage, EV charging, etc.), certifications it has earned, and warranties it applies to the system. Customers are encouraged to thoroughly research the chosen installing company before signing their service contract.

No NABCEP-Certification

While Entrust Solar has partnered with installers certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), the company does not appear to hold its own certification from the board. The NABCEP sponsors some of the most respected and sought-after sales, design, and installation certification programs in the solar industry.

The lack of NABCEP certification, however, should not disqualify Entrust Solar from consideration; rather, customers are encouarged to read the lastest verified Entrust Solar reviews to get a full picture of the company's quality of service. 

No Lease or PPA

While the solar company does offer a competitive solar loan financing option through Sunlight Financial, we cannot confirm whether Entrust Solar also provides the additional financing routes of solar leases and power purchase agreements (PPA), which represent a cost-effective alternative to traditional financing methods and free homeowners from the costs associated with solar array ownership.

The Bottom Line

Apart from the actual solar installation, Entrust Solar offers customers everything a homeowner might need to make an informed, empowered decision about going solar. This includes a helpful initial consultation, access to flexible financing options, and an expert-driven, custom solar design to maximize the home's output potential.

Customers should take note that the solar installation portion will be handled by one of Entrust Solar's fulfillment partners, so availability of system upgrades and warranty terms and conditions will vary depending on the installing company. We encourage potential Entrust customers to thoroughly research its partnership network to ensure they receive the best possible system they can afford.
