Harvest Solar Energy, based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has decades of experience selling a large selection of renewable energy products. It sells products ranging from solar panels and inverters to battery storage solutions, wind power, and outdoor lighting options.
Its goal is to offer a holistic approach to energy through the use of technologies like solar electric, solar thermal, and wind power.
President John Miggins founded Harvest Solar Energy in 2002 and has over 20 years of solar experience. He has been a featured speaker at the Sierra Club, Texas Solar Energy Society, University of Houston, Oklahoma State University, and numerous architectural committee and organizational events.
Harvest Solar Energy’s small group of solar professionals works with residential and commercial customers, architects, builders, and homeowners across the southwest. Its team works closely with clients to design and install solar systems that work well for both residential and business properties.
The company has relationships with several top solar suppliers which means it can procure highly rated panels, inverters, and more.
Solar panels cost thousands of dollars and can be prohibitively expensive. For many, having a financing partner is important and not all solar installers offer one.
Harvest Solar Energy is partnered with LightStream, a division of SunTrust Bank, to give its customers a convenient, low-rate loan option to finance their solar project.
LightStream is an established online consumer lender and can offer those with good to excellent credit low rate solar financing. It has a simple online loan process and offers financing from $5,000 to $100,000. It even has same-day funding available.
LightStream will finance all aspects of a solar project including design, parts and materials, labor, and any other related expenses.
Harvest Solar Energy has an impressive portfolio of solar projects displayed on its website. These projects range from single family home installations to large convention centers.
One of the company's largest projects was an installation at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. It has also installed solar at the PSO Headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma and worked on the largest solar-powered home in Texas in Houston.
Harvest Solar Energy has developed relationships with the top manufacturers of solar suppliers in order to be able to offer its customers the best.
For example, a few of its solar panel makers are considered in the top 10 within the industry such as Panasonic and Canadian Solar. For inverters, it works with top brands such as Fronius and SolarEdge.
And if it doesn’t yet have a relationship with a specific brand that is not listed on its website, Harvest Solar Energy can often procure them.
While it does have an excellent portfolio of solar projects, Harvest Solar Energy has very limited customer reviews. This can make it difficult for interested customers to determine the quality, speed, and longevity of the work Harvest Solar Energy does.
Unfortunately, Harvest Solar Energy does not offer leases or Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). These can be useful payment options for those who cannot afford the full financial responsibility of a solar project investment.
Customers should consider working with its financing partner LightStream or finding a different residential solar installer that does offer one of these payment options.
