The Bad

  • Missing Pertinent Information

Missing Pertinent Information

Evolution Solar makes a few bold claims and offers its clients some attractive incentives like no out-of-pocket expenses and instant savings. However, there is a lack of detailed information on the company's website and nothing to back up those claims. 

The company talks a lot about how you can save with solar, how to lower your utility bills, and how you can get a solar system without putting anything down. Plus, the company even mentions that it can help you get funding and finance your system. But that's about it. There is no mention of what kind of funding you can get, and it's not clear whether the company offers in-house loans or if you can get a lease or PPA. We would like to see Evolution Solar provide a bit more information regarding its financing. That way, consumers can easily find out if Evolution Solar offers the kind of financing they need and want. 

Most solar companies will disclose whether they offer a 5-year, 10-year, or 25-year warranty directly on their websites. Unfortunately, Evolution Solar doesn't give any information about what kind of solar panels it installs or what kind of warranties are available. There is also no mention of a timeframe and when consumers can expect their solar system project to be completed. Not disclosing this information upfront may not seem like a big deal, but it is helpful to consumers who want to compare solar companies quickly. 

Evolution Solar's service area is also extremely unclear. We know that the company is headquartered in Henderson, Nevada. But there is no mention of what counties or cities the company operates in. This is extremely frustrating as it requires consumers to contact the company directly and ask if their home or business is within the service area. It would be helpful if Evolution Solar simply listed the exact counties or cities it services.

The Bottom Line

Evolution Solar is a young and growing solar company, which has its pros and cons. The company is made up of a team of technicians who have experience in both solar and construction. Together they have been a part of thousands of installations and understand the ins and outs of the industry.

However, the company makes many bold claims but doesn't necessarily provide details — which may cause potential clients to hesitate. There are promises to help clients find funding, but the information is extremely vague. There's also no information about which panels or equipment the company uses. Sadly, the company's service area is unclear.

If you choose to contact Evolution Solar for a free consultation, we highly recommend coming in with a list of questions regarding all the previous points.

Evolution Solar Frequently Asked Questions

Is solar expensive?

Actually, thanks to the push towards renewable energy through both local and federal initiatives, it may be cheaper to create your own electricity than it is to buy your power from the utility company. You can get solar with no out-of-pocket cost and begin saving money the day your system is turned on! The types of programs and sun exposure will determine how much savings you see below your current utility rates.

What if I decide to sell my home?

All of the solar financing programs Evolution Solar works with are fully transferable if you decide to sell your home. Along with that, recent studies show that solar panels will increase the value of your home while helping you sell quicker! On average, a home with solar will see three to four different owners during the lifespan of the equipment, all of whom will benefit from the power being created on-site at cheaper utility rates.

Will it cause my roof to leak when it rains?

Every system is professionally installed and weather sealed. Each installation includes a roof penetration warranty and a separate insurance policy which covers not only the roof itself, but everything inside your home as well! Solar has been known to extend the life of the roof it is covering because the panels will absorb most of the weather and harmful elements that typically break down your roof material. This means you will typically get more life out of your roof than you would without rooftop solar panels.

Do I have to wait until I have a new roof?

Since the company offers warranties and insures all of its roof penetrations, Evolution Solar will be the first to tell you if you need a new roof prior to installing a solar system. The good news is in many cases, you can even include a new roof with your solar panels project, with little or no money out of your pocket.

My utility bill is already low. Does solar still make sense?

According to information collected by the Energy Information Administration (www.eia.gov), Residential Utility Rates across the country have nearly doubled in the last 25 years. So even if your bill seems low now, lowering your electric costs through solar panels and protecting your rate always makes sense.

What if the technology gets better in the future?

Solar technology is better now than it has ever been. With today’s technology, with even just a small part of the U.S. deserts covered, we could capture enough energy to power the entire world. The average increase in a home’s efficiency greatly exceeds any loss of efficiency in the solar panels, which means a system that is creating all or most of your electricity today should continue to do so for the lifetime of your equipment. Plus, as State and Federal incentives continue to decline over the next several years, the overall cost for solar in Henderson, Nevada; Meriden, Connecticut; and East Haven, Connecticut, as well as the rest of the country is likely to increase.

Do I have to lease the system?

No, not at all! Evolution Solar has a large variety of different options to reduce your utility rates. This allows the company to tailor each system based on what is the best fit for you and your family. Evolution Solar will explore all of the different incentives and programs you may be eligible for and make sure you understand how the programs work. Solar is not a “one-size-fits-all” product. When you schedule your no-cost, no-obligation solar consultation, the company will explore all of the various options and let you decide what makes the most sense for your situation.

Will I be able to create all of the power I use?

In most cases, Evolution Solar is able to produce 100% of the electricity your home currently uses. Each home is different, however, so the company will take a look at your usage and even look at other energy saving options that can help save you money on your utility rates. If you are currently connected to the local utility, you may still have to pay a connection fee and certain government taxes once your system is turned on, but creating your power through solar panels is much cheaper since the bulk of your utility cost comes from the electricity you purchase from the utility company.
