Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Free Financial Analysis
  • Quality Assurance Check
  • Referral Program

Free Financial Analysis

Before installing your new solar panels, Highlight Solar believes it's important to show clients exactly how much they'll be saving. During the financial analysis, Highlight Solar will go over the following points:

  • Direct, immediate, and future savings on your electric bill
  • Total life cycle payback
  • Increase in home resale/appraisal value
  • Compound annual rate of return
  • If financed, current and future cash flow

Many consumers want to go solar but aren't exactly sure what the benefits are. With the financial analysis Highlight Solar clients aren't left in the dark. They know exactly what benefits they're getting and how much they're saving. 

Quality Assurance Check

To ensure that every client is satisfied with the finished product, Highlight Solar performs a 10-point quality assurance checklist. During this stage of the process, clients can walk around and inspect the work done by Highlight Solar's installers. Clients are encouraged to ask questions and check out the equipment. While this step may seem unnecessary, we appreciate that Highlight Solar goes the extra mile to make sure clients feel involved and a part of the process. 

Referral Program

Highlight Solar recently started a referral program. Highlight Solar customers can refer family, friends, acquaintances, coworkers, and more and possibly earn $250 cash. 

The only catch is that your referral must have a solar system installed, so no cash if they make an appointment but never seal the deal. This program could potentially earn you quite a bit of money — if you know a lot of people who are seriously interested in going green.


The Bad

  • No Lease or PPA Options
  • Limited Service Area

No Lease or PPA Options

Highlight Solar offers customers can purchase their solar units upfront with cash or through a loan. However, the company does not appear to offer solar leases or power purchase agreements (PPAs). This is unfortunate as these options can be incredibly cost-effective for those who are unable or unwilling to foot the cost of a solar panel system themselves.

Limited Service Area

Currently, Highlight Solar is only available to those living in the San Jose and San Francisco Bay area. Unfortunately, that's all the information Highlight Solar gives, so the exact service area is a little unclear. Interested consumers will need to call the company or email directly to determine if their home or business is within the service area. 


The Bottom Line

If you live in the San Jose or San Francisco Bay area, it may be worth your time to call Highlight Solar. The company is an all-in-one solar service provider and offers several complimentary amenities — including a free financial analysis, free site inspection, and a free initial system design.

We appreciate Highlight Solar's dedication to customer satisfaction, especially since clients are encouraged to walk through the completed project. During this walkthrough, clients are encouraged to ask questions and make sure everything is up to their standard. 

Highlight Solar's service area is a little vague, and interested consumers will need to contact the company directly for more information.
