The Good

  • Excellent Reputation
  • Financing
  • Technology Use for Estimates
  • Local
  • Time in Business

Excellent Reputation

Exact Solar has a great reputation. It's hard to find a review that isn’t five stars anywhere on the web. Clients are very happy with customer service, flawless execution of projects, and consistent communication. 

Financing

There are many ways for customers to afford solar. If you don’t have the money up front and don’t want to use a home equity line of credit, there is financing available. Exact Solar prefers customers use the not-for-profit credit union, Clean Energy Credit Union. Exact Solar has a fantastic working relationship with CECU, helping Exact Solar to give its customers the best price possible. Exact Solar’s website states customers can get a 15- or 20-year loan with CECU and save money every year right from the start.

Technology Use for Estimates

Exact Solar has the technology to provide potential customers with virtual estimates using satellites. This is helpful for clients that don’t do well face to face with salespeople. Some feel anxious and appreciate the initial estimate to be done virtually without any pressure. 

Local

Exact Solar is a local, family-owned company. One of the benefits of using a local solar installer is smoother communication. Often, the person who sold the system is also there for site visits and the installation process. Because of this, local installers will be better at serving customers needs from the beginning and is available if a system has any problems. Local installers rely on word-of-mouth marketing and will pay better attention to small details over rushing through projects to get to the next. 

Time in Business

Purchasing a solar energy system that may or may not include a new roof is expensive and a long-term commitment. Customers will be working with the company throughout the lifetime of the panels warranty, which is 25 years. It’s important to hire a company that has been around a while and is conveniently located in proximity to you in case of servicing needs. Exact Solar has been around since 2005, and we feel confident it will be around in the future.
