Go Solar was founded in 2011 by three men who are passionate about green energy and solar power. Having seen the benefits of solar energy on a humanitarian trip to Africa, they wanted to bring these benefits to people in their home state of Utah, as well as Nevada residents. Go Solar offers two payment plans, and are a full-service contracting business, seeing the customer's solar process from purchase through installation.

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Full-Service Contracting
  • Installation and Equipment Warranties

Full-Service Contracting

Go Solar takes care of all installations in-house, which is a big plus for consumers. A customer who chooses to use Go Solar will be lead through the process of purchasing and installation by the same company, instead of being handed off to a third-party for any part of the system. Keeping all of the steps of solar buying and fitting with one company ensures customers will receive the service and products that they are paying for.

Installation and Equipment Warranties

When making an investment as large as a solar system, consumers want to be sure they have the comfort of a warranty in the case that anything goes awry with their system. Thankfully, Go Solar provides these warranties to insure customers against problems that may have occurred with their installation, or any issues with the solar equipment itself. Go Solar provides a 10 year workmanship warranty, a 25 year panel production warranty, as well as a 10-year warranty on their SMA panels, with the option to extend.

The Bad

  • Limited Availability
  • Limited to Two Payment Plans

Limited Availability

As with many other solar companies, Go Solar has a limited area in which they provide their solar services, this area being exclusively in the states of Utah and Nevada. If you are a Utah or Nevada resident then Go Solar may still be a good option for you, but if you live elsewhere, you're out of luck with this company.


The Bottom Line

Overall, Go Solar offers a great service with their in-house contracting, and their robust warranties, backed with a history of humanitarian aid and passion for the green energy industry. However, unless you live in Utah or Nevada, you will need to consider other options.

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.
