KR Solar is a residential solar installation company founded in 2018 and headquartered in Portland, Oregon. The company seeks to answer common questions homeowners might have about making the switch to solar energy, including “Is my home a good setup for solar panels?” “How much does solar cost?” and “Is solar worth it?”
KR Solar arms its solar panel systems with some of the best warranties in the solar industry. Every KR system comes with a 10-year workmanship warranty, considered the industry average, which protects homeowners against errors during the installation process, damage, and required maintenance fees.
Additionally, KR Solar provides a 25-year equipment and production warranties, which respectively cover the physical components and lifetime production of the system. In the event that a solar panel, solar inverter, or roof mounting setup is found to be defective or otherwise negatively affecting the system’s agreed upon performance output, KR Solar will make it right at no cost to the homeowner.
KR Solar mentions that it helps homeowners achieve solar panel ownership; however, details on the specific means and financing options the company employs to help customers own their own solar panel system are not explicitly mentioned. These may include solar loans, solar lease, or power purchase agreements.
Homeowners will likely obtain this information following an initial discussion and energy consultation with KR Solar.
Though the solar installer advertises an industry leading 25-year equipment warranty, the specific equipment or preferred solar manufacturing partners is not disclosed. The specific make and model of the various components of a solar system greatly influence its overall cost, energy-efficiency, and durability.
Through scant social media posts, KR Solar mentions its business is expanding into the San Antonio solar market, and current job boards list openings in North Carolina. Beyond those two states, and a corporate listing that identifies Oregon as its home state, KR Solar does not explicitly mention in which states its residential solar services are available.
KR Solar does not appear to be NABCEP certified. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners is an industry recognized organization responsible for some of the most trusted solar technician training programs in the country.
The absence of this certification should in no way disqualify KR Solar from being considered for your home solar project; however, the presence of an NABCEP seal can make the difference to homeowners comparing multiple solar companies.
