Established in 2016 and headquartered in Utah, Fluent Solar operates in several other states with good solar incentives. 

Fluent Solar offers a variety of ways for homeowners to begin their journey of going green through solar energy. These options include buying your panels outright, getting a loan through Fluent Solar financing, or signing a lease or PPA (Power Purchase Agreement).

The Good

  • Flexibility with Payment Options
  • Quality of Panels
  • Workmanship Warranty
  • Upgrades

Flexibility with Payment Options

Fluent Solar helps its customers go solar in almost every way imaginable. You can buy the panels outright with cash, sign a lease or PPA, or get a loan through Fluent Solar or your local bank. 

With a lease or PPA, you'll be able to pay little to nothing down, lock in your rates, and be covered for the next 20 years. But you do not own your solar system with a lease or PPA. 

Keep in mind that some payment options will make more financial sense depending on what state you live in, but know that Fluent Solar will get you set up your solar installation with whatever option is best for you.

Quality of Panels

Fluent Solar sells and installs SunPower panels that come with a 25-year warranty. The SunPower solar panel system ranks as one of the most efficient and cost-effective installations in the solar industry, with an industry-leading efficiency rate of over 21 percent per panel.

Workmanship Warranty

To provide you with peace of mind, Fluent Solar provides a one-year leakage warranty as well as a 10-year workmanship warranty. These warranties ensure that the installation of solar panels on your roof has been completed properly and that Fluent Solar will cover you in the event of an error on the part of the solar installer or contractor.

Upgrades

Fluent will install critter guards as a solar upgrade. 

In addition to solar, Fluent Solar offers home energy upgrades including the following: 

  • Attic foam seal
  • Attic insulation
  • Solar attic fan
  • LED light bulbs
  • Google Nest thermostat

The Bad

  • Warranty Length
  • String Inverters Unavailable

Warranty Length

While Fluent does provide an adequate workmanship warranty for a solar company, there are some competitors that offer 25-year workmanship warranties. 

String Inverters Unavailable

An inverter is the part of your system that converts the solar power your panels collect into the power your home uses. 

There are two inverters that companies usually use for installations: string inverters and micro-inverters. Micro-inverters are better in areas that have more shade but are more expensive than string inverters. String inverters are efficient in very sunny areas and are cheaper than micro inverters. 

Unfortunately, Fluent Solar does not sell any string inverters which means you'll need to use micro-inverters for renewable energy, even if you live in an area that is good for string inverters.

The Bottom Line

Fluent Solar is a strong contender in the industry. With its variety of payment options, SunPower panels, and 10-year workmanship warranty, you can be assured that Fluent Solar will take care of you and your solar needs.

They're professional and they're good at what they do. It's really helping out with my energy bill. During install they pretty much stayed outside, I watched them install the whole thing. They got it done done pretty quick. When you call in It doesn't take long for them to pick up.

When we had questions they were always answered in a timely manner. The installation process was pretty uneventful. When they first got here, we discussed what they were going to do and I agreed and then they did it and that was it. The equipment so far is working fine.

Solar Power is new territory for my family and I, Thank you for the knowledge and patience our Sales Rep. Derrick took to thoroughly explain how our family could benefit from the Solar Program through Fluent. As well as our options if we ever decided to move and wanted to take the equipment with us! From the first introduction Derrick was easy to speak with clearly explained every step of the process. There is an entire team working along side him making sure things move in the right direction! Great Team!

Bee Osborn Avon Lake, OH

So far we are happy with our install and use of our solar panels. The process was quick and any slow down was due to my schedule. We unfortunately just got them up and running and it's winter in Ohio so skies are mostly gray. We have noticed production even on the gray days so we will see how the electric bill is affected. We had a problem with the initial start-up call scheduled for 3:30 and received the call at 5:30. This was because of a time difference between states so hopefully they made note of that and corrected the time schedule for future customers. We rarely talked to the same person twice, which seemed not so personal, but the customer service was still good no matter who we were dealing with. Everyone was kind and knowledgable of our account. The app is easy to use and very basic. I'm looking forward to seeing the difference once we have the long sunny days of summer.

We had our panels installed by Fluent Solar at a much better rate than the competitors. Took awhile to get installed due to pandemic. During the wait we were kept informed and updated, However, once installed it has been great results. Whenever we contacted customer service with questions they are always eager to help and responds promptly to voice messages left. The one issue that we had when some of the panels were offline, they had the installers contact us promptly and booked an appointment, came to the home and trouble shoot and fix the issue. Satisfied customers here and highly recommends Fluent Solar. DW

My husband and I had a great experience with Jeff. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions to our satisfaction. Their system is very high tech. We felt very comfortable moving forward with Fluent Solar. It was pretty much a no brainer. We spoke to a few other companies and they just weren’t as personable as Jeff was. They personally handle the entire process from start to finish. Even the welcome call we received from the corporate office exceeded our expectations. You could just tell they had done this hundreds of times and were very on point. We would totally recommend Fluent Solar to friends and family.

Overall I don’t love how solar panels look in general. But I do like that Fluent used the black on black panels on my roof. I feel like it looks more sharp than the traditional panels. Had a really good experience. I love that they only use micro inverters, which I had no idea about going into this, but luckily they made easy enough for me to understand. Essentially each panel functions on its own, and I can track the individual production of each panel on my phone to ensure the system is producing what it’s supposed to. If it’s not preforming like it should, they come out and maintain it as per the warranty which hasn’t happened to me. The process was a lot more painless than I thought it would be. Would for sure do it again! At the end of the day I’m saving money and helping the environment at the same time!

I can honestly say I never thought I would have solar panels on house. I Though you had to pay a bunch up front for an installation and equipment when getting a solar panel system, but that way Fluent has it set up, anyone can do it without paying up front. I didn’t pay a cent prior to the panels being turned on, and they took care of all the backend stuff. My monthly payment for the panels is cheaper than what my electric bill was, and now we don’t have to be so conservative with our electricity. My main concern was what would happen if our panels stop working, but the warranty extends 25 years. What can I say, it was a slam dunk decision for us. I’m really impressed with the install as well. I’m trying to figure out how to upload pictures of my install to share. I will update my post if that feature is available. Ben and Richard were extremely nice to work with, and were really knowledgeable about the local and government incentives for going solar. Would absolutely recommend.

Project manager was great and so communicative. Had some issues with the solar at first but they were on top of getting the part to repair it quickly. I also like that the attic insulation and fan was included. They were good about following up about this even though it didn't happen at the same time as the solar instal. I thought I would have to chase that down to get it done, but they were on top of it.

Panels installed after about 4 months, needed main panel upgrade and staffing issues everywhere (not the company's fault). System installed but has yet to turn on. Have had service ticket in for about 2 weeks. Received an e-mail from service, but no solution, no calls. Supposed to have 13 months before paying financing, but I am 4 months in to my 13 months (according to the bank used) and I still can't use my panels. I am patient and I understand the staffing issues facing everyone right now. So I give 4 stars with the hope that these issues will be resolved. I would've waited to give a review, but I have had 5 emails asking me to rate Fluent even though my system isn't functioning yet.

Everything was great. The only issue we had were the ground mount poles that we're left in our garage for a bit. Seems like there were some organizational changes which led to confusion about their pickup. Communication to us was great, and all the paperwork, permissions (even the HOA!), and inspections were coordinated and done without us having to do anything!

My favorite aspect of Fluent Solar is their value. They provided the most competitive price. My next favorite is their genuinely caring customer service. They sometimes have new people who are learning, but they get it done right and have support from management to do the right thing. My system took a few months to go live but its producing more electricity than my payment, plus I get the tax advantages. Its simply a cash positive no brainer experience for me.

We had an overall great experience with Fluent, had a few small issues, but PM was quick to respond and solution made. We started end of last year, installed in March and live in April. We requested updates to the location of the boxes and the engineers listened and resolved. We are producing more than we use, even with air running. Our only regret is not making the decision to go Solar sooner.

I had been thinking about solar for some years, and when I met Cody and Bryce I felt they were people who would take care of all the details you would expect with such a complex system. And, they sure did. They were always available to explain what would happen next and when, and answer questions I seemed to continually come up with. I also want to recognize Mickey from the install team who camouflaged the front roof conduit so well that I forget its there, and Adrian who patched the stucco around the new electrical panel like you would expect from a true artisan.

Now is the time to put in solar. Bryce L has been amazing at walking us through every step of the installation, and he follows up often to make sure everything is running smoothly. Which it is. It is so wonderful to now have a electric bill shocking me every month! The federal rebate will offset half of the cost. Bryce will show you all the options for payment.

Smooth process start to finish. No complaints. Very informative presentation. High level of customer service. The time it took from enrolling to install took a little bit longer than I thought, but that’s because city took longer issuing the permit. I didn’t mind though because I didn’t have to pay for anything in the mean time, and I wasn’t the one in communication with the city. They were. Couldn’t be happier with the savings, and I love tracking my panels’ production on my phone.

I got installed with Fluent Solar back in May of 2017 and couldn’t be happier. Our representative was courteous and professional, and their team ensured that everything was hands off for us after moving forward. I had a concern that my panels wouldn’t preform since part of my roof gets shade for part of the day, so they made sure that my system had microinverters so that each panel works independent of each other. I’m just happy that I no longer get any charges from Duke power, and I didn’t have to come out of pocket to pay for anything up front. These guys have it together

If you're like me you read reviews. I have read some of the one star reviews and let me tell you I the total opposite experience. From the start I trusted this company over the abundance of other companies that have tried to sell me solar. Nick my salesmen was freaking awesome. There was no pressure (unlike other companies) he understood my concerns addressed them and came back with a reasonable plan. Once approved I was introduced to Luis my PM, he took care of all the backend stuff and made sure I had any other concerns addressed. Anytime a question came up no matter how small I could reach out to either Luis or Nick and they always got back to me sameday with an answer. So far the only thing that seemed to have taken the longest was waiting on the city to permit the job. It's been about two months or so and my panels are now installed. Oh, we can't leave the installers out of this. Adam the lead on the install came in at 7am 8/13 and had a 26 panel system installed (with help and a electrician) by 11am. Now we are waiting on the inspection so I can flip the switch and start saving money! Big shot out to Fluent and everyone that is on thjs project.

I thought solar panels would be too expensive but after being bombarded with ads claiming they were free I looked into it. My house has a good southern exposure so I thought it made sense. I found out from the first company I spoke with, they were too expensive. I had a meeting set up with FLUENT and was about to cancel but thought I would hear them out. I'm glad I did, they gave a proposal that made sense financially. Otherwise I would not have done this. I have recommended FLUENT to co-workers and friends. The system was installed in 3 weeks and actually got done prior to the original install date. The people I worked with were great and answered all my questions when they were asked. I am satisfied with the work and look forward to monitoring the energy production.

TERRIBLE...TERRIBLE...TERRIBLE. What else can I say, after getting the system installed, been waiting for 18 months from one failed inspection to another. How a company that is in the solar business treat their customers (used very losely) so bad! Now after installation from June 2022 and still waiting for the system to get inspected and working, a leak has developed. Will they expedite the process to get the leak repaired?? NO! They want to get the system "in service" before doing any repairs. If I could give negative stars, I would! If I could warn as many people as I could, I am trying. Hope this company stays in business long enough for me to sue them for damages and get my money back. No way I can get 18 months of my time back! :(

The system seems to be functioning as promised. The installation was done in a timely fashion. Coordinating the installation and inspections was slow with poor communication. The wiring had to be corrected upon inspection. After all being said staff was friendly and helpful. I think they were overwhelmed with the amount of work. I believe the product sales itself so everyone was very busy.

I am satisfied with the installation of the solar panels but the company is falling short on the follow-up it has been a month since the installation and they finally got the walkthrough of the startup after many calls from me but an error occurred so it is not generating power yet and they have not followed up. Also the ceiling of my garage was damaged during installation it just needs a sheet rock replaced if I was not an old man I could have done it now we have extreme cold weather coming in that could cost me more than the solar panels future value will be everybody I talked to in this company is friendly and helpful but I am beginning to believe think they are more interested in selling products then taking care of customers

This is a horrible company and they have no idea what they are doing. Took months to finally get the system working for inspection. Issue after issue over the battery and the wiring of the system. They never have anyone that knows anything about battery. They should not be selling something they know nothing about. And now after the system has been finally running for 4 months the battery stops working. I called the support line to have someone take a look at the issue as the system is not even a year old. I am now being charged $350 to have someone come out and look at the issue. They tell me I have to pay this “deductible” to validate the technician is “paid”. And all before they even come out to look at the issue. This company has horrible customer support and they try to scam you. Do no do business and go somewhere else.

Reading some of the reviews I agree with most. Stay away from fluent solar. They don't tell you the whole truth. I'm still trying to talk to them about how many of my panels are working. They were supposed to put them on my garage roof facing west but instead told me the engineer told them that the front of my house facing north would produce just as much solar. I found out later that the guys took the easy way out instead of going into the attic above the garage to run conduit They decided to just run the conduit over the peak to connect the north facing roof with the south facing roof. I haven't been able to get through to them for months. Either there's a technical problem with their phones or they never call you back. Do your research, I wish I had. I'm still paying my electric company due to not providing enough through solar.

Guys showed up to sell solar to us. Everything was how great the product and the warranty was, all the money you will save, et. They did not have a website address I could refer to, to research the company, nor a business card. (Said their boss didn't want them to hand out business cards) and the website wasn't functioning because of new equipment and price changes. Red flags. Check the reviews if you are considering and if you weed through the 5 stars for a bit on here, you start getting some real life "they don't call back" and "I'm paying for panels that don't work" "they put a lien on my home"I am hiring an attorney" over and over and over. Just beware and keep reading the reviews before you commit.

# Fluent Review Fluent’s support was OK - during the installation process. It’s been a disaster trying to fix some loose ends that occurred. Though there are some concerns I have with the work Fluent set up in the beginning. Firstly, based on their estimates on how many panels I would need to cover my current energy usage plus some growth in the future were dramatically off, and even though less people live in my house than before, my usage has somehow gone up, exceeding what my panels are capable of providing, meaning before the panels were even turned on I have no room to scale in the future. This means I’m paying a double bill, one to Fluent and one to Xcel for my energy overages. This is disappointing to say the least. Also, I’m not sure if it was due to supply chain issues, but the panels I have installed do not seem like what was described to me during the sales process (specifically how there would be no way for animals to get between the panels and my roof because they were low-profile panels and flat installation brackets…my panels have a substantial visible gap between them and the roof. The contractors Fluent has been working with have been awful. My back yard has been trashed with the amount of garbage, old wires, conduit scraps, forgotten tools, and food left to rot that were left by the contractors. More than once they didn’t show up when they said they would (not just late, but not showing up at all, with no communication they weren’t going to be there), lied more than once about the job being finished when it wasn’t, gaslit myself and my project manager regarding their attendance and job completion, had to come back out 4 or 5 times (I was told they would get the work done in one day) and I had to wait an extra month for my project to complete because they were so unprofessional. I have concerns not all of the panels are connected because they don’t all show up in the app. I was told I need to troubleshoot this through a third-party who manages the app, but I potentially have at least two solar panels that are completely offline. Shortly after wrapping up the installation it got warm enough to start using my air conditioner, which is no longer connected to my thermostat. I raised this issue to Fluent nearly two months ago and have been calling them twice a week to get the issue resolved. Communication has been a mess, since they’ve committed to calling me regularly with information and updates but haven’t followed through. The status has been the same for weeks (waiting for one HVAC company to reply to them) with no updates. Meanwhile temperatures inside my house are exceeding 90°, making it unbearable to do my job, and is hell on my pets. I’m unable to take them somewhere air conditioned while I work and I can’t afford to pay to leave my house every day. I assumed this was a shortage of HVAC labor, but I was able to schedule someone to come out within 48 hours of my call…what the hell have I been waiting for 7 weeks for?! Finally they were able to schedule one of the electricians who originally replaced the master panel to my house (three days later than when they said they were available), and they were able to verify that the AC is at least receiving power and runs without issue, so somewhere the communication from my thermostat to my AC isn’t getting through. Yet again, I had to follow up with Fluent almost a week later about what are next steps are going to be based on this information. They said they MIGHT be able to send someone out NEXT WEEK. This is when I decided to call someone to look at it myself. Originally they said that my house would be used as a case study and that to quality for this I needed to provide a few months of data to show the “improvements” I’ve experienced, but I haven’t gotten any information regarding how I’m supposed to be providing this information or interacting with Fluent. It also feels fishy that one of the most energy-guzzling appliances have gone down during the time period that they want to get a copy of my data. Maybe this is their way of fudging the numbers to make it look like solar (and the other eco-improvements they provided for the house) made a huge dent in my energy usage when in reality it’s because I’m roasting alive in my own home. They’ve been begging me to leave a review, so here it is.

Solar system seems fine, but they are a bit of a mess as a company. Our salesperson mislead us on number of light bulbs and Nest thermostats they'd include. When we called them on it, they pointed to the contract fine print over promises of their salesperson. Once it was all set up it took several weeks of phone calls to reach the one person to turn on a portal so we could view our system in app or online. So many messages and no returned calls. I waited on the phone while it was setup so I wouldn't have to hope they finally set it up this time. The lender they use (All in CU) has similar service, they couldn't sort out how to setup their own recurring payments and ended up dinging our credit for their mistake on setting it up after they'd had our paperwork for more than a month. After several phones calls over two months it was finally sorted as well and our credit is slowly recovering.
