Hi-Power Solar is a family owned company offering a wide range of solar energy solutions. Together, they boast over 30 years of experience in the solar industry offering solar water heater, solar pool heater, solar attic system, and PV (photovoltaic) system services. The Hawaii based company is dedicated to providing full services of solar needs.
Hi-Power Solar offers consumers a wide variety of payment options including purchasing and leasing options. Purchasing options include purchasing the system independently or applying for a loan. The main advantage to this option is that you own the system and are eligible for government tax credits. Hi-Power Solar offers interest rates beginning as low as 0% for 2-years up to 2.99% with a fixed rate for the first 24 months. Hi-Power Solar's leasing options differ between residential and commercial projects. Residential customers are able to lease their Hi-Power Solar system with the option of a low or no monthly payment as well as low or no down payment. Commercial customers have the option to lease as well as opt for a PPA (power purchase agreement) option. The PPA option gives commercial customers a monthly discounted rate on their utility bill as well as low or no down payment.
One of the most appealing aspects of Hi-Power solar is that they offer a wide range of products. Their list of inventory includes products from companies such as Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Enphase, SunPower, and more. This gives consumers the ability to compare different product models and choose the option that best fits their needs.
Hi-Power Solar offers consumers two different inverter models, both of which come with online monitoring capabilities. The Power-One inverter model comes with a web based monitoring system called Aurora Easy View. This system monitors overall system performance and energy production. The second inverter model offered by Hi-Power solar is Enphase. Enphase comes with an online monitoring system called MyEnlighten. This system allows consumers to view overall system health and production of power. It also allows consumers to chart their solar system power production over months, days, or hours.
Hi-Power Solar launched in 2010 and has been offering a wide range of solar services since that time. Its years in the industry have given Hi-Power Solar the opportunity to adapt their services to meet the needs of consumers and change policies as the industry has changed. This may give them an advantage over many of the other solar companies we have reviewed who have been in business for 3 years or less.
Because Hi-Power Solar exclusively offers services to Hawaii residence, most solar energy consumers will not be able to use its solar energy services. Consumers located outside of Hawaii will have to look for a solar energy service provider servicing their area.
