The Good

  • Solar Partnerships
  • Zero Down
  • Simplified Process

Solar Partnerships

Meraki has partnered with some of the solar industry's leading manufacturers to provide homeowners with the most reliable and efficient solar energy systems available for purchase or loan:

  • Enphase — a leading solar inverter and monitoring producer
  • SolarEdge — a leading micro and string inverter manufacturer
  • LG — high-efficiency solar panels with a 25-year equipment warranty
  • Hanwha — a top-tier solar panel producer with 12-year warranties

Zero Down

Clients with Meraki Solar don't have to worry about upfront costs. Instead, homeowners will pay for their solar power by the month (only cheaper and it's a flat-rate). Meraki's solar loan option not only eliminates upfront costs, but it also entitles homeowners to solar incentives at both state and federal levels, including the federal solar tax credit. 

Simplified Process

Meraki Solar does everything it can to simplify the solar process. 

The first thing the company does is give you a free and easy solar assessment. This information allows Meraki Solar to determine how much you can expect to save by switching to solar. 

After determining the best solution for your home, Meraki Solar will send out a team to check out your home and gather information on how to design the system (keeping in mind your home's curb appeal). 

The third step is installation. Meraki Solar insists that installing your solar panels will only take a few hours. Afterward, a company representative will walk you through the system and how it all works. 

The final step is activation. Before Meraki Solar can connect your panels to the grid, you'll need to get permission from your local municipal or community utilities for Permission to Operate (PTO).

The Bad

  • No Solar Lease or PPA Options
  • Undisclosed Workmanship Warranty

No Solar Lease or PPA Options

Meraki Solar only provides customers with two financing options: direct purchase and solar loan. While both options grant homeowners to fantastic federal tax credit incentives, direct purchase can require tens of thousands of dollars upfront, while the solar loan can require even more money over time.

Solar lease and power purchase agreement (PPA) options are incredibly cost effective in that they place the financial burden of installation and maintenance on the company; the customer meanwhile only pays a flat monthly rate for either the system or the solar power — and often at a lower rate than the electric bill.

Undisclosed Workmanship Warranty

Although Meraki Solar provides customers with robust product warranties through their manufacturing partners, the solar company has not disclosed the terms of its own workmanship warranty, which provides additional protection for the system against installation errors and necessary maintenance. Leading solar panel installation companies provide workmanship or labor warranties of up to 25 years — the lifespan of the system.

The Bottom Line

You may want to look into Meraki Solar's services if you live in Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, or Texas. The solar company does a lot of heavy lifting and helps consumers through the entire solar system process. If you're looking for a solar lease or PPA, Meraki Solar is not for you. We encourage potential customers to read verified Meraki Solar reviews to see if this company's products and service match their preferences.

Jim Schultheis Fort Walton Beach, FL

I was sold the system in Feb 2020, but installation didn't start until May and it wasn't turned on until Oct 2020. The installation crew cause tens-of-thousands of dollars in damage to my roof. After dozens of phone calls and emails to the company, NOBODY from Meraki has called me back. Each of the 5-6 people who answer their support number promised a supervisor would call, but nobody did. In Dec 2020, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. They have not responded to the BBB. In my last email to Meraki, I told them they have until Jan 7th to resolve the issue of I'll hire a lawyer to sue them. Do NOT do business with Miraki!!!
