The Good

  • Solar Savings Calculator
  • Reliable Solar Equipment
  • Zero Down Solar Financing
  • Unlimited Referral Program
  • Humanitarian Work

Solar Savings Calculator

Go Solar provides online visitors a free solar savings calculator that does not require them to submit any personal contact information ahead of time. Visitors need only submit the following:

  • Home address
  • Whether they rent or own the home
  • Age and type of roof
  • Whether the roof is shaded by trees or other buildings

Go Solar will then calculate a rough estimate of the 25-year savings the addition of a solar panel system could potentially provide. Visitors interested in receiving a full, detailed report can provide their name, email address, and phone number to see an exact savings breakdown for the first year, total savings after 25 years, a free digital rendering of the home, and a free expert solar consultation.

Reliable Solar Equipment

Every Go Solar Group solar installation is composed of reliable solar equipment from trusted brands. Go Solar's preferred solar panel partner is Axitec, a German-based manufacturer whose 315-watt modules maintain 18.96 percent energy efficiency and come with a 15-year equipment warranty and 25-year production guarantee.

Also in Go Solar's inventory are solar panels from industry leaders like LG, Solaria, and Silfab, which are rank even higher than the Axitec module for energy efficiency and materials warranty.

As for solar inverters, Go Solar has partnered with industry leader SolarEdge, which have up to 50 percent less energy loss when converting solar energy to electricity than some other inverter devices. SolarEdge is also the company's preferred partner for solar optimizers and solar array monitoring.

As for roofing and mounting equipment, Go Solar uses products from Everest for roof mounts, and IronRidge for ground mounts.

Go Solar also installs the Tesla Powerwall as an upgrade to solar panel systems. The Tesla Powerwall is a leading solar battery device that harnesses the solar system's excess energy to be used for emergencies or to power an electric vehicle. Solar energy storage is a great way to improve the overall energy efficiency of the system and save on the monthly utility bill.

Zero Down Solar Financing

Go Solar offers zero down financing to qualified customers as a way to fund their solar power system. This financing offer, plus the company's extensive knowledge of available state rebates and incentives like the Federal Tax Credit make owning a solar system all the more possible for homeowners.

Unlimited Referral Program

Customers and non-customers alike can benefit from Go Solar Group's unlimited referral program. Referrers can earn up to $500 for every successful solar panel installation with no caps!

Humanitarian Work

For every completed solar project within its four-state service area, Go Solar will donate a comparable amount toward community solar, education, environmental, and economic initiatives in Africa. Since 2009, the company has installed more than 2,500 solar-powered lights and reduced household kerosene use by 72 percent in select Ugandan communities.

Andre Mostert Midway, UT

We had Go Solar install 12 panels on our home's south facing roof last summer (2016). They were so busy that we did have what I felt was a long wait. However, when they came, they were done in one day. They did a good job in cleaning up after installation. Unfortunately, their contact with Heber Light & Power did not work well and it took several weeks before we were actually seeing power generated. We are very pleased with the power we are seeing now as we have seen our monthly bill cut in half.

I really enjoyed the salesperson and services provided, I would give that an 8-9, and I'm happy to support a local company, however, the entire process has taken approximately 8 weeks. Some of that has been the power company, but mostly it's been a lack of communication between us, and Go Solar. They rely heavily on email communications, but that isn't clear from the start. Bottom line, they need to improve their project communication and next steps more clearly and timely. The entire project time to turn up could have been shortened by 3-4 weeks.
