The Good

  • Multiple Payment Options
  • SunPower Master Dealer
  • Online Monitoring
  • Warranty Length
  • Durable, Low Maintenance Equipment

Multiple Payment Options

Freedom Solar Power offers its customers multiple payment options to choose from, including cash purchase, lease, and PPA. With a variety of ways to pay, customers have the ability to find an option that fits their needs.

SunPower Master Dealer

Freedom Solar Power has chosen SunPower as its solar panel manufacturer, and has secure Master Dealer status in both Texas and Colorado. As a SunPower Master Dealer, the company's representatives have undergone advanced training to aid in installing SunPower's high-quality solar equipment and products.

Online Monitoring

Freedom Solar Power continuously monitors the solar systems it has installed. In addition, customers are given access to a web-based monitoring application that will provide them with information about their system's output and performance, as well as how much money they are saving on energy.

Warranty Length

The team at Freedom Solar Power places a great deal of confidence in the PV solar systems it installs. As a result, each system comes with a 25-year power output warranty. If the panels do not produce the amount that the customer was quoted for, Freedom Solar Power will pay them the difference.

Durable, Low Maintenance Equipment

The solar panels installed by Freedom Solar Power are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and wear and tear over time. In fact, the panels are certified by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. to withstand hail, hurricane force winds, extreme temperatures, and rainstorms. Additionally, Freedom Solar Power panels have no moving parts and are virtually maintenance-free once installed, making them both cost-effective and time-effective for the customer.

The Bad

  • Limited State Availability
  • No Loan Option

Limited State Availability

Freedom Solar Power currently only offers its services to residents of Texas. While being a local provider does have advantages, it also limits the number of customers who have the opportunity to do business with the company.

No Loan Option 

While Freedom Solar Power does provide its customers with a number of different payment options, the company currently does not offer a loan option. Loans are generally a very popular choice because they give customers the opportunity to own solar panels without having to make a hefty upfront investment. By not offering a loan option, Freedom Solar Power is making it difficult for its customers to achieve solar ownership.

gavel

The Bottom Line

Freedom Solar Power has more than a decade of experience in the solar industry. The company offers a lengthy warranty, durable equipment, and online monitoring. However, Freedom Solar Power only operates in the state of Texas and does not offer a loan option.

Abraham Navarro Humble, TX

We chose Freedom Solar from 5 other installers because of their pricing, no pressure quote and quality Sunpower panels. We haven't paid a light bill in a year. Our account balance with Reliant has been in credit status from the start. We earned $-305.93 in credit last summer(8/21/20) and $-161.29 in credit this winter (2/24/21). Needless to say were extremely satisfied and recommend Freedom Solar.

HERACLITUS MAXIMUS Austin, TX

After conducting extensive research with various top-rated solar companies, I am truly pleased to have chosen Freedom Solar as my main solar installation company. Freedom solar is simply the BEST solar company since they offer the best warranty, the panels are the best in the market and their staff (like Juan G) are simply the best equipped to handle all complex questions regarding going solar... I deeply appreciate the professionalism and dedication of my Energy Consultant (JUAN G) who assisted me from the very start. Juan was extremely professional and explain everything there is to know about solar installations intricacies and the great benefits solar offers... Unfortunately, due to an urgent unforeseen family situation, I had to postponed my solar project until I come back to my hometown :( Despite, the obstacles and personal situations I am encountering, I am convinced I will come back to Freedom Solar to resume my solar installations since there is still time to benefit from the federal tax rebates and Freedom Solar world-class costumer service.

Morales Austin, TX

The sales rep was very friendly and knowledgeable and patient with us. They were quick to get it installed. It look less than two weeks. We thought it would be longer than that. Our biggest problem was with the electric company but that didn’t have anything to do with Freedom solar. Everything is working well. It is producing as we expected.

Lohse Austin, TX

The panels are producing in excess of what we thought it would. The equipment is top notch. We had an issue in the first month or two. We weren’t sure if the breaker was done on one of our HVAC units and they came out even though it wasn’t directly related to the solar and helped troubleshoot the system.

After doing some research we decided on freedom. They are local to our area. It can be hard to get a hold of someone in customer service but otherwise they are great. They got it put up in one day. They came out bright and early in the morning. The crew was great. They knew our exact specifications. We had some questions and they were able to answer. It looks gorgeous and the app is simple to see what we are producing. I would recommend them to anyone.

Jim Austin, TX

I live in a remote location so getting service can be many weeks and that is not really acceptable. If I had known that I would not have chosen them. I had a failure early on. I am a retired instrument engineer so I like to up with stuff. I don’t think the average person would have noticed. They didn’t tell me I had a problem but they did help me rectify the problem but it was a long, drawn out procedure.

Hill Austin, TX

They have the best panels on the market as far as the most efficient with the fewest number of panels in order to create the power we need for our home. They were on time with the installation and gave me a brief explanation of the app. It is simple. I was kept updated every step of the way.

Customer service is always willing and able to answer questions. The only negative thing was they miscalculated some local coding on the number of panels they can put up. Installation was pretty uneventful. The system is running low. We were promise 39 percent and it is more around 26.7 percent.
