LAST UPDATED: June 6th, 2024

Founded in the summer of 2021, Lumio represents the combined efforts of five regional solar companies to provide homeowners with fast solar installation services and widespread availability.

The Utah-based company is currently available in 11 states and employs a workforce of more than 3,500 employees. As a result, Lumio has quickly risen to become a top-five solar provider in the country in terms of installation volume and boasts an impressive 12-month run rate of $1 billion, per Forbes.

Lumio’s unique value proposition to the residential solar market is its ability to seamlessly integrate solar energy with existing smart home and energy management technology.

The Good

  • Smart Home Integration
  • Solid Warranties
  • Fast Installation Times
  • Broad Service Area
  • $0 Down Financing

Smart Home Integration

Lumio is not just a solar panel installer; it is a technology company. As such, Lumio is one of the few solar providers that can successfully integrate a solar energy system with existing smart home and home automation protocols.

So not only can a Lumio customer’s home generate its own electricity, decentralized from the utility grid, but that home can also use machine learning to determine the most efficient uses of that energy.

Built-in rules will also notify the homeowner and Lumio of impending threats to the system like power outages, rolling blackouts, and more, and provide real-time solutions to help homeowners keep the lights on.

Solid Warranties

Lumio offers customers some of the most robust and competitive warranties in the industry. In addition to the 25-year product warranty—a guarantee from the manufacturer that the physical components of the solar panel system will perform as expected for a minimum of 25 years—Lumio provides its own 10-year workmanship warranty, which protects homeowners from being liable for damages caused to the system or home for the first 10 years of operation.

This means that even after generating power for 25 years, they’ll still produce at least 80% of their original production levels.

Fast Installation Times

Lumio boasts one of the fastest installation times in the industry. While many solar contractors can take anywhere from 30 to 90 days from the day building permits are secured to final walkthrough and activation, Lumio’s average install time is less than 30 days—with some system builds clocking in at 10 or fewer days, start to finish.

Broad Service Area

Lumio’s services are available to homeowners in the following U.S. states:

  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Florida
  • Idaho
  • New Mexico
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • South Carolina
  • Texas
  • Washington

$0 Down Financing 

Eligible customers—presumably determined via credit score—can install Lumio Solar with no money down and no payments are due until after your system is installed. Lumio’s financing options are not disclosed in detail, though homeowners can assume the company provider paths for direct purchase or third-party loan financing.

Leasing is also an option for consumers who want to go solar without making a monthly loan payment. Just keep in mind that with leasing, you don't own your system—a third party does.

The Bad

  • Specific Solar Brands Not Listed
  • Unclear NABCEP Status

Specific Solar Brands Not Listed

Lumio does not mention specific solar brands or manufacturing partners, nor does the company showcase any partnership certifications. Often, solar providers will maintain brand-specific certifications as a way to differentiate themselves from the competition and show off their expertise to homeowners.

While customers can assume that most solar providers, including Lumio, have access to a broad inventory of solar panel and inverter brands, leading providers will mention a handful of preferred manufacturing partners by name to provide customers with a fair expectation of the quality of system they’ll be receiving.

Unclear NABCEP Status

Although the five regional providers that have coalesced into Lumio may have employed technicians who have been certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), whether Lumio itself has achieved board-certified status from the NABCEP is unclear.

The NABCEP is an industry-recognized organization that promotes the best solar installation and business practices. The lack of certification should in no way disqualify a company from consideration; however, its presence can make the difference for homeowners comparing multiple providers.

gavel

The Bottom Line

Lumio combines regional expertise with the scope and resources of a national solar provider.

Its pioneering work in the solar–smart home integration field mark the company as truly unique in this space, and its fast installation times paired with industry-leading warranties in part explain why the company has been so successful in such a short amount of time.

Pending some clarifications on its industry and manufacturing certifications, Lumio appears to be a transparent and reliable solar provider.

We encourage prospective solar customers to reach out to Lumio for further information and to read verified Lumio reviews to see how customers have enjoyed their experience with Lumio.

I only gave one star because I could not go any lower. This company has decent customer service after they bend you over a barrel. The salesman Cody made all kinds of promises and what sounded like a decent pitch. After the pitch I figured what was there to lose. I was promised first 3 months no payment and no electricity bill to ensure the system was online and producing as promised, then if it wasn’t able to produce what they promised Lumio would come out and add panels at no cost to make sure they met their “production guarantee”. After the system was installed and online the salesperson was nowhere to be found, refuses to answer or return any of my calls or messages. Finally after 2 months of service which I have paid for along with my excess electrical bills I was informed that there is NO production guarantee but they’d be happy to get me a quote for additional panels to make up for what they weren’t producing. After the first bill came through along with my normal electric bill I reached out to the company to insure I had the correct number for my sales rep. They assured me that I did and also explained to me that the 3 months of them covering the electric and color bills was something that the salesperson had to take care of and it must be in writing or they can do nothing about it. Since he cannot be reached by me that is just another loss cause and lie told by the salesman that the company is refusing to do anything about. This has put my family under financial strain and they don’t care anything g about it. I cannot recommend this company to anyone and will tell you if you do decide to go with them make sure you have everything you want in writing and signed by the salesperson before you sign anything.

Overall, the experience with obtaining solar services from Lumio was great. My salesman, did not pressure us to buy solar as I have read other company salesman have done. Our sales rep, stayed in communication until my system was installed and answered all my questions. And beleive me, I asked a lot of questions throughout the process. The installation process was overall successful. It did take a little longer than initially projected, but was done professionally and in accordance with my wishes. Lumio could have provided a little more assistance at the initial start, I did have to actually turn on the Enphase reporting system myself, so that process could have been a little smoother. I think a few YouTube video's would help the process and minimize questions.

from the presentation to the installation every team has been professional, timely, and always cleaned up after themeselves. I am still waiting on the final inspection due to city plans do not meet the array setup of the solar panels.. My system is on but I believe I still need a final instpection from the city and fire department as well as Edison.

Don’t waste your time with this company. Had a guy come D2D and I’ve been interested in solar so I was willing to hear them out. Scheduled an appt a day later and Israel, sales rep, shows up 15 min late to the appt. Red flag after red flag during the meeting. Asked what the price of the panels were and he said “we actually don’t know”. Told him I was going to shop around so provide me his proposal which I agreed. He said in order to send that over he has to run a prequalification. I was very clear I wasn’t signing anything today but he sent me an installation agreement, and finance agreement and tried saying the proposal was in the documents and I need to open them. Asked again specifically just for the proposal and he said “oh yeah I have another meeting after this but will send it on my lunch break”. Day later and never received it. When I told him I was shopping around his response was “I’m trying to get my guys paid so I gave you the best price possible so I wouldn’t shop around” LOL. Whole process was a total scam trying to get me to commit that day. Wouldn’t come close to this company.

My salesman was peter.we were under the clear understanding that Fleetwood. What sufficient panels placed on our roof that would provide production? They would offset our entire electrical bill. Although we had only been In this home 10 months this sales person was confident that they would be able to provide us with the appropriate number of panels. I indicated that if more panels would be needed to supply us a proper coverage of electronic production,. We would not be liable for that expense that they would have To Do it being Lumio. He assured me that the Number of panels installed would be more than enough. My system was installed in March 2020 three.on June 8th of 2020 three,. The system shutdown for no apparent reason and we were unaware of such shut down. I noticed my bill 6 weeks later and it was quite high. I called blue meal they indicated the system was off and they don't know why. Period there's no alert there is no alarm there's nothing the indicates the system is not working. I don't understand the in efficiency of a company that sells you something so expensive that it does not have any kind of an indicator.. 6 weeks after that call they finally showed up. I will say the gentleman named Eric was quite good at what he was doing and educated me as to what the app would be on my phone and how. To work it and he got my system back online.in the meantime. I'm paying for the loan. I'm paying for a very high bill and I ask for a refund from Lumio. That request was made in September of 2023. It is now 6 months later and I have not received anything accept excuses and it's coming and we'll get back to you.i have made no. Less than 4 calls I have. Sent? No ❤️ emails. Trying to address this deficiency.so far I have gotten 0 response or result. I've only had one month that I could actually see how the system works June. It was shutdown so I lost all but one week of coverage July was shutdown so I lost the entire July coverage and in August I lost 2 of the 4 weeks because the system down.so September was the only month that I could have seen at the efficiency of the system. Period with that the panels only produced the equivalent of 3 weeks of power consumption. It's just my wife and I and we are retired. We have our home. Typically at 80° sometimes 70 eight.that's not cold that is. At best somewhat comfortable but we're trying to watch our money' 'cause. We're retired.so with that it seemed rather obvious to me that the agreement I had with the salesperson that we need more panels to cover the. System efficiently. Let me know has refused and they said that it's not on the contract. And they're not responsible for what the salesman offers.my argument is they represented lumio. They wore their shirt by that very same name so my next move is to report it all to the Attorney General.

Trevor and Brice were both knowledgable and clearly outlined the information necessary to help us understand the need and the advantages of going solar. They were polite and were not at all "hard sell". Brice was very respectful of our time and answered our questions to our satisfaction. We chose not to go with solar at this time due to extenuating circumstances, but will keep contact information available in the event our circumstances change.

I have been happy with all the installation work that has been done. However, there have been large gaps between each phase of the project. Now, I'm due to pay a month worth of the cost of the panels and they still aren't generating electricity. I'm hoping that there will be an adjustment made for this, as I was told the panels would generate electricity before my first payment.

I thought the sales people and the anchor man were competent and courteous. The paper work side of things was okay but not as professional as I would have liked.The overall coordination of roof/solar on my house took all summer due to increased orders.But once the roof went on, the solar was done succinctly and Puget Sound finally came and turned it on.Very happy with results.

We are happy with most aspects of working with Lumio so far.There were a couple communication glitches but installation was good. We're now at the stage of waiting for an appointment with an inspector before the panels can be activated and it's already been 3 weeks.I realize that's not Lumio's fault since the holdup is with L and I, but it's still frustrating.

I hesitate putting the 3 stars (I want to put more) but the training of the young men who came to our house could have been better. They were AWESOME with explaining everything, BUT when it came to the day of installation, then when it came to the inspection, and whether or not people needed in the house, they either did not give correct info or they just didn't know how to communicate. For instance: Day of installation, I was told the installers would be there between 8am and 9am. I only took an hour off from work, had to leave and no one came during that time. At 11:00am, I received a text (I had left a note on my front door) from the installers apologizing but that they came from out of town, etc. I should have been given a bigger frame of window for the install. Another two times was did the installer s need in the house and did the inspector need in the house? I was told "no", BUT both the installers and the inspector needed to get into my attic, so the answer should have been "yes".

Everything was explained well in the beginning, but there has not been much follow through since the panels were installed. It's as if everything was rushed to get them on your roof, but I've had to send several messages to different people involved with my account to figure out what's going on. After a month, I'm still a little confused on next steps with regard to solar buy back program, how billing will work, etc.

I've had my solar system installed for a few weeks now. It's still not operation for a electrical breaker. I've had MULTIPLE electricians attempt to come install the breaker but they haven't communicated the part isn't available locally. I'm going on 3-4 weeks of having a system on my roof that's not operational due to communication issues of installing the correct part.

The original date to install was canceled and rebooked because of scheduling problems. It took them a long time inspect. And it still isn't up and running because PSE is back logged. When I tried to call them for help it was like the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing. I still don't know if we passed the inspection because there hasn't been any contact from Lumio.

You cancelled two of them stating emergencies elsewhere and the 3rd one you just didn't show up.

It started with my Sales Representative Pearson W being so good and answering our questions that we had with Solar and the process of obtaining it. He was articulate and personable as well as knowledgeable. The Installers Stephen, Truth, Matt,Trent and Trent were here just before they said that they would be which to us, we love PROMPT. They installed the Solar panels Safely, Efficiently, and a very polite crew in every way. They exude confidence of the product that they are installing which is very reassuring to us. The idea that we got this as quickly as we did is very surprising. We couldn't even get our new roof installed that fast. Lumio is a very impressive Company they do what they say they were going to do.

Luise Irby Del Valle, TX

$91,000! Somehow that number slipped right past me when I was basking in the glow of the realization that I was doing something wonderful for the environment and saving on my electric bill by purchasing solar. I just didn’t see that number go by. Well, I must admit that Lumio was correct in that I do not usually have to pay anything on my electric bill which is usually $70 - $120 a month. However, for the last couple of years I have been paying $263 a month to Enphase for the loan that pays for my solar system. The reason that number has suddenly come to my attention is found in a letter I received telling me that if my balance isn’t down to $62,000 by the end of 2023 the payment will be increased to $380 a month. So according to my calculations I am paying 3 times as much as I would have been had I not opted for solar. I have determined that this account will not be paid in full until I am 113 years old. If for some reason I die before it is paid off my daughter will need to pay on it until she is nearly 90 year old. Think about that before you purchase solar from this company.

We got a new roof along with our solar panel installation last year. We have had no problem with the solar panels, but we do have a problem with the roof. Our home owner's insurance checked the problem and said it was poor workmanship, that we should contact the roofer. We have tried multiple times to communicate with Lumio. We got one response right after we reported the problem, several months ago. They stated that a claim had been filed. Since then, we have gotten no responses to any emails, not even after having the report from the insurance company. BEWARE, the customer services, post installation, are horrible.

Lumio is not the problem. They are good until they leave after installation. Then all communication goes dead. You go into this state of limbo because your system is not tied into the power grid. My customer service guy disappeared after lumio install. Don't know when my system is going to go online.It is just sitting there. I talked with a lumio customer in League City. He had his systm installed in July and it still isn't connected to the grid. Can't recommend to a friend because i am in limbo.

They have not been very communicative and it's taking much longer than they estimated to get our solar panels up and running. Things have only progressed when I've called them to get updates. If I don't call, then nothing happens.

Now that we do not get the 26% end-of-the-year refund and have to pay the higher premium, we will be paying more than before going solar. Your survey came too early, as I have not gotten a first bill yet. ng higher payments than before we went to solar.At this point, it looks very discouraging.

Things started off great, but slowly went down hill. Communication in where we are in the process went from great to poor. Can't get anyone to return calls and when we do talk to someone they state they will look into it and no one ever follows up.

Because I've been waiting to get going since April and yet they came n put put the 200 meter Amp, and apparently AEP says that it did not pass. And so here I'm waiting for answer from anyone and nothing. But they sure take out my payment really quick. So here I'm waiting on a refund for July and nothing. Payment for August they got already and still nothing. So now I gotta wait and get my August refund back. I wish I would of never gotten solar panels.

The installation process was reasonably painless, though it did take a bit longer than anticipated. The panels look good, and are functioning nicely - usually reaping the sunlight power needed to offset the cost a bit - not much though. I am a bit unhappy that I was not given the opportunity to include a solar BATTERY for my home - which would have been SO much more convenient given our power outages and hurricanes. I've tried to contact LUMIO several times, and am beginning to wonder if they are still in business... Wish someone would CONTACT ME ABOUT IT!!!!!

Carolyn Fitzpatrick Fort Lauderdale, FL

Lumio installed out solar panels and back up battery a little over a year ago. They did an excellent job with installation, but communicating with them regarding service issues has been a headache. We had AC minisplits installed after the solar went in, and the AC installers did not connect it to the backup battery. As a result, when we lose power everything comes back on EXCEPT the AC. A month ago I phoned Lumio and the receptionist said they would have the service department contact us, but we never heard anything. I got the same answer when I phoned again, and didn't get any reply at all to the emails that I've sent over the past month to customercare at lumio.com. We are very frustrated, since being able to have AC after a hurricane power outage was a major reason why we wanted to get solar in the first place.

Lumio approached our house due to the rate of sun exposure. Yes it was a sales approach, but one we have been looking for. We have been doing research and always wondering and curious if North Eastern Oklahoma was a good area for Solar. We Met with Chase and Cam early in the week, filled out applications, signed papers and within a month(which is not always normal) we were set up for installation. Now waiting on the power company for their inspection and sign off! Cannot wait to be more efficient and economical!!!

From start to finish the experience was smooth and went better than expected. Caleb C who spoke to us was always available if we had any questions. After receiving our first invoice from our power company and did not owe any payment to them, we were convinced that Solar is the way to go, and if one is looking for a company, one cannot go wrong with Lumio

Went under contract. Within 2 months had the permits approved. The panels were installed a week later. Within the next 3 weeks they were approved by the city and utility company to be turned on. My electric bill has dropped to 0 kw used. And on top of it all I get a significant tax credit to apply to my taxes for the year that I can use to keep my solar payment low or pocket for a rainy day ;)

I’m a great believer that good things happen and Lumio arrived at my door. Great directors with knowledge and experience. Defiantly enhanced has profound effects in my monthly energy bill. Lumio has given me the kind of freedom I was looking to lower my energy cost. I highly recommend if you have not looked into owning your own energy and stay off the grid away from power outages GO LUMIO. Sunny and Alix thank you so much so very appreciative of your courtesy not only the calls but on time and the willingness to help me.

Don't do business with this company. I am 48 years old and have owned three companies myself. This has got to be the worst managed company I have ever ran into. Great sales team and quick to take your money. Good luck after that. My project is over a year old now and it is still not complete. Companies like this are giving the whole Solar industry a bad name. I beg you to shop elsewhere... unless you like being ripped off and then not communicated with. Well after a year and half of waiting, and 4 months of complaining and threatening them... Lumio hasn't done anything but keep dropping the ball! More than a year later of paying for a incomplete job, I still have no generator and the solar power promised is 35% OFF!!! I have been paying a solar payment and a power bill because the promised 1600 KWH is way off! I was promised 1600 kwh and we only averaged 923 kwh!!! SO NO GENERATOR, NO SOLAR PROMISED SOLAR PRODUCTION, AND NO FOLLOW-UP OR SERVICE!!! I WISH I HAD NEVER MET THESE CROOKS!!! PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF AND DON'T USE LUMIO!!!

They installed fast but little communication, installers just through trash in yard and don’t believe when they tell you that you won’t have 2 bills because of a 30 day grace period with the loan company. I called and they told me because the loan was due they’d give me a gift card for first month. It’s been over a month and I haven’t seen any card and they don’t answer my texts anymore. We had 2 months of electric and the loan together we had to pay totaling almost $700 bill for those 2 month.

They are great at taking your money and installing but seem to struggle at everything else. When issues arise near everyone goes silent and its near impossible to get a hold of customer service. Urgent labels and escalated tickets don't help. Its been a disaster from Day 1. Changed design without approval, starting installing them on the one and only place I told them not to. A brand new, month old, $20,000 roof. Its been nearly a year and I'm still waiting on a rebate for panels that were not working for a year prior to that, where people scheduled and never showed, or couldn't fix it. They gave me a non transferable loan after that being the selling point for Solar, Was told (and i paraphrase) if you sell the house you can transfer the loan to the new owner and that way the loan doesn't stay with you so don't need to be concerned about tha't, So have me a non transferable loan for if the house was to sell and wont fix and not even willing to fix that problem and so I'm out of personal pocket $14,000. Cant remove them without paying about ***** for removal. And on top of all that, most months i still get a power bills. There was a $100 **** gift card provided so although it was something it didn't even come close to a acceptable compensation. I get not everyone gets this experience and companies aren't going to be perfect every single time but so many things and big things that shouldn't be messed up repeatedly is a huge disappointment from my experience. But needless to say I have not been impressed in the slightest. Very disappointed and feel extremely cheated by getting solar panels with this company. I will not feel comfortable referring this company on to anyone for Solar. 1 star for my personal experience me is actually pretty generous. I have a resolution in mind but that would involve, agreement, contact and action from Lumio's end and that is proving to only happen as a result of a miracle. Please prove me wrong, that would be awesome! They wont take them back and pay off loans for you, I want the panels gone, I want the loan gone, I want to be out from underneath this company altogether.

I'm in Control Hemet, CA

Around June 2022, I purchased solar panels from Lift Energy, now Lumio. At the time of the inspection of my roof, they said it was OK and proceeded to install the panels. In January through March of 2023, we had severe rains, and where the panels were installed my roof leaked in three different areas: directly over my bed, kitchen, and living room, and three other areas in my home where the panels were not. I have been contacting them via phone and email for 9 months.I have been transferred to a different account representative 3 times. They have told me time after time that this is being taken care of, and as of today, October 18, 2023, nothing has been done. My last response from them was on September 27, 2023, saying they spoke with the contractor on September 22, 2023, and they are still waiting for them to respond. They also said they could not locate a contractor in my area, and I was told by the person who is now handling my account that I could find one on my own. I want my roof replaced and my ceiling replaced in my house. This could also be a health issue, as the ceiling could have mold. If I could give less than one (1) star, I would.
