The Good

  • SunPower Elite Dealer
  • FAFCO Solar Pool Heating
  • Solar Battery Storage Options

SunPower Elite Dealer

For its traditional solar PV installation service, Mirasol Solar has become a SunPower Elite Dealer offering clients its tier-1 technology and products. SunPower is the world’s largest manufacturer of solar panels and utilizes a proprietary system including a solid copper foundation, ultra pure silicon, and a light-trapping surface to grab more power.

The solar systems produced by SunPower offer the best degradation rates in the industry so clients can rest assured that the equipment installed on their property is some of the best the renewable energy industry has to offer. 

FAFCO Solar Pool Heating

One of the most unique services and partnerships that Mirasol Solar offers is solar pool heating technology. Decades ago, Mirasol Solar struck a partnership with FAFCO, the leading manufacturer of solar pool heating panels. Within a five-county area, Mirasol Solar is the only company with access to this equipment and technology.

While some solar companies have started to offer solar panel solutions designed for pool heating capabilities, few have access to tier-1 solar equipment through an exclusive pool heating manufacturer like Mirasol Solar does. 

Solar Battery Storage Options

Traditionally, SunPower Elite Dealers solely offer SunPower solutions, but Mirasol Solar has been able to strike a partnership with other equipment manufacturers to offer two different solar battery storage options. These equipment options include the SunPower SunVault System and the Tesla Powerwall.

Both storage systems work seamlessly with the SunPower solar system and will efficiently store energy and allow clients to be more energy independent than solar clients that do not have a storage system installed.

The Bad

  • Limited Service Area

Limited Service Area

As an exclusive dealer in certain areas, the Mirasol Solar geographic area is limited and restricted even within the state of Florida. For PV solar clients, Mirasol Solar can install SunPower systems on Florida’s Suncoast. For solar pool heating, Mirasol Solar has partnered with FAFCO to offer its products in five counties within the state of Florida.

Outside of these areas, Mirasol Solar will not be able to take on the project as it does not have access to its equipment outside of the predetermined geographic locations. This is one of the drawbacks of working with solar dealers with restricted service areas.

The Bottom Line

Mirasol Solar provides comprehensive solar services to residential and commercial clients looking for alternative energy solutions. For solar electric, Mirasol Solar operates as a SunPower Elite Dealer providing high quality panels and inverters that work seamlessly with storage options.

In addition to offering traditional solar electric services, Mirasol Solar also provides solar water heating, solar upgrades, and a full-service department to interested clients. Lastly, Mirasol Solar offers two different solar battery storage options for clients to choose from including the SunPower SunVault system and the Tesla Powerwall. 

While there are a number of reasons to utilize Mirasol Solar for solar system design and installation services, there are limitations to the platform as well. Services are solely provided to Florida property owners. Outside of the state, Mirasol Solar will not be able to take on the project. 

Clients looking for multiple ways to cut costs through solar power will likely benefit from what Mirasol Solar has to offer. With solar electric, pool heating, water heating, and solar battery storage options, Mirasol Solar clients can access multiple renewable energy sources to cut costs and reduce their carbon footprint.

Lorraine S Bradenton, FL

We have had nothing but positive interactions with Mirasol Solar. Kris M is very knowledgeable about solar and battery systems and how they work. I emailed him our electric bill and he sent us a proposal with all the specs for our system. We had a number of phone conversations about the proposal and asked him a ton of questions which he was able to answer or would get back to us with an answer. We loved the fact that we didn't give the normal salesman pitch where you had to make a decision right now. He gave us options and recommendations on what we wanted in a whole house Solar System. I Googled and asked NextDoor community about the best Solar Company and Mirasol Solar was at the top. Out of the 4 solar companies I contacted, Mirasol Solar was the only one that recommended we contact our Homeowners Insurance company to make sure they would cover our new solar system. We found out, they didn't but now I have found and Insurance Company that does. Kris also was able to explain the process of Net Metering and how our electric company would be involved with the process and installation. It has just been a truly amazing and enjoyable experience with Mirasol Solar and can't wait to start using our solar system and seeing our electric bill savings.

I have had my solar system for over a year, including, electric, solar hot water and solar pool heating. Before I went with Mirasol, I interviewed representatives from 10 other solar installers. Hands down, the Mirasol sales person , Brian, was personable, honest and direct. He gave me facts and no bull. Many of the other companies' sales reps seem to represent a finance company which just happened to sell solar products. Mirasol did a professional job and installed in the time they promised. Even when, later, they were swamped with service calls because of hurricane Ian, the schedule me in to fix a minor sensor problem and fixed it in minutes. The system works flawlessly and I am thankful that I chose Mirasol.

From initial meeting with David W, the sales representative, to installation and final customer service review, our experience with Mirasol has been everything we hoped going solar would be. We only wished we had jumped in sooner!

John Virball Sarasota, FL

As a retired General Contractor, I always used 3 criteria for choosing a sub contractor. Will they do what they said they would do? Will they do it in the time frame that they said that they would it? Will they do it for the price that they contracted for? Mirasol passed all of these criteria with flying colors. First. I am a big proponent of solar energy. When I moved to Florida, solar was Priority 1. Why would anyone not take advantage of solar? You know energy costs from FPL will continue to rise? You know fossil fuels are responsible for the extreme climate change that we are experiencing? You know that you want to leave the world a better place for your grandchildren? You know that solar is an asset that will improve the value of your property? Those were all easy answers. I got 4 estimates before I choose Mirasol. I also learned a lot about solar panels, panel placement and storage batteries. 3 of these estimates came from Tier 1 manufacturers , the other "provided a Tier 1 panel", but they didn't know which panel it would be until installation time. Obviously the lowest price panel they could get! They didn't make the first cut. I wanted to make sure that the manufacturer of the panels not only provided an excellent product, a 25 year warranty and that they were a solid company with excellent financials. Why would I care about a company making a profit. First profit is not a bad word and it's essential to be able to survive in business. It's no use having a 25 year warranty if the company goes out of business in 10 years. SunPower ticked all of the boxes and Mirasol Solar has been the SunPower distributor in the area for years. So SunPower and Mirasol made the cut. Another interesting fact was that Mirasol didn't bug me and try to offer me deals to sign right away, questioning when I was going to make a decision and just being annoying. In fact it was the opposite, I had to chase them. I had some "what if's" we do this, or can we increase efficiency here? They were responsive and also made some suggestions as to how to reduce my energy consumption such as installing a Variable Speed pool pump and a hybrid heat pump hot water system, all of which was included in the estimate - and in my Federal Tax credit. Once the contract was signed, Mirasol had to coordinate with my roofing company (I was also getting a new roof) but they were able to keep to my schedule by juggling personnel. Installation date finally arrived with the install of two Tesla Powerwalls in my garage and then the roof panels. The installation was a work of art! Clean, everything laid out and perfectly symmetrical. Everything was as I expected! Now - nothing is perfect and the worth of a company comes through when an issue happens. And invariably issues happen. Within a couple of weeks, I was concerned that my Tesla Powerwalls weren't functioning as I expected. I made a call to Mirasol service. They were able to get data online from my Powerwall and determined that one Powerwall was only operating at 70% efficiency. Their service techs showed up the next day and diagnosed the issue on a call with Tesla support and that afternoon they replaced the defective unit with a brand new Powerwall. Not a rebuilt unit. A new, out of the box one! Issue solved. It's been 6 months since the install date. The system is functioning properly. Mirasol and SunPower can remotely monitor the system (as I can) to ensure that everything is 100%. My house is all electric; I even charge my Tesla vehicle at home and my FPL bill for the last 6 months has been a consistent $27.21/month which is only because on the minimum grid fees that FPL charges. I have not been charged for a single kW of usage. This is a long review because I am not only reviewing Mirasol, but the concept of solar. Solar is a no brainer. Do not get overly concerned about ROI because it doesn't always work. I am in my mid 70's and if I had to rely on an ROI to support my investment, I'd still be driving a gas guzzler. I am just trying to do my bit in a small way to help save the planet for my grandkids. But I also love my $27.21 FPL bill. So get solar and have Mirasol install it. They did what they said they would do. They did it on time and the did it for the price of their quotation. No extras! Can't beat that with a stick!

Dawn Carpenter Miami, FL

I appreciated Damon's excellent communication throughout the entire process. He showed up when he said he would, and always answered questions promptly. He was very professional and followed through with things in a timely manner. It is rare to find a service company that will give you a definite time rather than a "window" between several hours that keeps you a prisoner in your home, waiting for someone who doesn't come, then doesn't text or phone to let you know they got held up. That did not happen with Mirasol. I am pleased with my system and am enjoying lower electric bills and a smaller environmental footprint. I'm happy that I made my purchase when I did, while there is a tax incentive to help with the cost involved.

Ed Messner

Knowledgeable sales staff. Experienced installers. Good service after the sale. I was a repeat customer from our 2009 install. We updated our system in 2022 including an additional Tesla Powerwall battery when we needed a new roof. It was installed a few months before IAN hit us. The system worked without any damage during and after a direct hit from Hurricane Ian. We were even able to share electricity with two other homes as well. I have recommend Mirasol to other residences in our community. At least homeowners have used them and are happy with their installs. Two others when solar but used out of the area "lower cost" installers. Both have had problems such as leaks and difficulty getting information or service after the sale.

J.P. , the maintenance coordinator was terrific. Very easy to talk to. Matt, the mechanic did a fabulous job correcting a communication problem. The office staff were also more empowered than before. You can tell that customer support is priority 1.

Love our solar!! It's saving us about $100 a month and supplying about 70% of our power. The sales and installation team did an excellent job to provide us the solar array that worked best for our house.

Going solar is more than throwing a few panels on your roof. Mirasol proves that by quickly responding to follow up issues. Mirasol has stood behind their installation.

We will always be available for any warranty issues that may arise from our work regardless of the area. Unfortunately we can only offer the additional solar panel cleaning service in select areas.
