It also has served multi-unit residences such as apartment buildings and member owned electric co-ops. 

Letters of Recommendation Published on Site

Potential clients can find letters of recommendation published on Midwest Sun and Solar’s site from past clients. These letters highlight the type of work performed, professionalism of employees, attention to detail, quality of work, and timeliness of the company’s services.

1 Year of Free Operations and Management Services

One year of free operations and management services is included with Midwest Wind and Solar’s turnkey installation services. Operations and management services help maintain optimal performance of systems increasing power output and return of investment. 

Educational Arrays Available for Schools

For educational facility installation services, Midwest Wind and Solar can provide an educational array for schools. In a letter of recommendation written on behalf of the Tri-Creek Schools Corporation, the superintendent describes the educational components that were completed for the students and community including elementary arrays, solar kits for each grade at each school, and an educational solar panel in front of the solar array for student experiments. This service offered by the company demonstrates the partnership and dedication to renewable energy education in the communities it serves.


The Bad

  • Equipment Warranty Undisclosed 

Equipment and Performance Warranty Undisclosed

Midwest Wind and Solar does not disclose equipment or performance warranty information on its website. Equipment warranties typically guarantee 10 to 12 years without equipment failure. A solar panel’s equipment warranty will typically guarantee 90 percent production at 10 years and 80 percent production at 25 years.


The Bottom Line

Midwest Wind and Solar provides comprehensive services for a variety of facilities. Although O&M services may be provided in other solar companies, it is uncommon for a solar company to include these services at no extra cost to the client for one year. This demonstrates the dedication of the company to the optimization of its solar systems and customer satisfaction. The letters of recommendations provide feedback from past clients of exceptional service performed by the company. We recommend asking for further information at the initial consultation pertaining to the company’s equipment and performance warranties and how it compares to other solar companies.
