The Good

  • Solar Panel Technology
  • Inverter Installation
  • Backed Warranties
  • Storage and EV Charging Solutions

Solar Panel Technology

In an effort to provide solar panels options to clients, PGT Solar Solutions has partnered with three tier-1 solar manufacturers. Clients, depending on needs and desires, will have their pick when it comes to selecting the most efficient solar panel for their specific needs. PGT Solar Solutions clients have access to the following solar panel brands:

  • SEG Solar
  • Solaria
  • REC Alpha
  • SunPower

PGT Solar Solutions is a SunPower Master Certified Dealer, and was the 2020 SunPower Regional Dealer of the Year. The solar provider's partnership with SunPower, one of the leading solar panel manufacturer's in the world, provides Phoenix homeowners with the best of both worlds: the responsive service of a local solar installation expert, plus the long-term reliability of some of the most energy-efficienct solar panels on the market.

Most solar installation companies will offer one solar panel brand/manufacturer and there is no deviation from this offering. PGT Solar Solutions wants clients to have a more customized experience with varying solutions that best suit the needs of the structure, users, and property itself. 

Inverter Installation

Solar panels get all of the attention when solar systems are discussed. They are the most visible equipment within the solar system, but the cornerstone of a solar system’s production and efficiency falls on the microinverters.

PGT Solar Solutions understands the reliance on inverters and has partnered with one of the industry leaders in microinverter manufacturing. Clients that use PGT Solar Solutions will have access to the newest Enphase products, including the IQ8 Microinverter.

The IQ8 microinverter is the first solar inverter that utilizes split-phase power conversion that is capable of efficiently converting DC power to AC power. Enphase microinverters will work seamlessly with all of the solar panels providers PGT Solar Solutions installs.

It should be noted that not all solar companies place as much of an emphasis on inverters when it comes to manufacturer partnerships, but PGT Solar Solutions understands the importance of this equipment and technology thus offering the industry’s best to its clients. 

Backed Warranties

Having a solar system installed is a financial investment. Even with federal and state tax incentives, solar customers can still expect to pay thousands of dollars for solar equipment and installation services. While this investment should pay dividends in the long run, there is still a hefty financial sacrifice made upfront for renewable energy production. As a result, solar installation companies typically offer a number of warranties to clients protecting this financial investment. 

PGT Solar Solutions clients can expect the following warranties:

  • Limited Defect Warranty: 25 years
  • Limited Peak Power Warranty: 25 years
  • Warranty Transfers Available

PGT Solar Solutions ensures clients that all equipment is backed by industry standard warranties. That being said, the warranties available through the PGT Solar Solutions manufacturing partnerships allow for comprehensive coverage and limited exclusions compared to other equipment providers.  

Battery/Storage Solutions Available

While many solar installation companies are starting to offer battery and solar storage solutions to clients, few offer the LG Solar Chem storage system. The LGE Energy Storage System batteries are highly sought after as they utilize Li-ion NMC batteries. The LG Chem storage system boasts a voltage range of battery of 350-450V DC, one of the most impressive ranges in the solar battery industry.

Similar to the Enphase micoinverters, the LG Solar Chem storage system works seamlessly with the solar products that PGT Solar Solutions installs on its clients’ properties. What sets the battery and storage solutions offered by PGT Solar Solutions apart from the rest of the industry is the equipment and technology clients will have access to through the LG Solar Chem system.

The Bad

  • Limited Service Area
  • No NABCEP Certification

Limited Service Area

PGT Solar is limited to a specific geographical area with no plans of expansion. Currently, PGT Solar services the greater Phoenix, Arizona valley. Outside of this area, PGT Solar will not take on the project.

Other solar installation companies are not limited in terms of geographical growth in this way as many are not dealers of a specific manufacturer. This allows these competitors to service and take on projects companies like PGT Solar are unable to. 

No NABCEP Certification

The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is widely considered to be the most respectable independent certification organization within the field of renewable energy. Many solar installation companies, particularly companies that install a wide range of equipment products, will have at least one in-house professional (usually in the installation department) that is NABCEP certified.

This certification, while not required to conduct or manage solar installations, demonstrates a level of understanding and skill that solar clients can rely on. Unfortunately, there are no PGT Solar Solutions technicians on staff that have obtained NABCEP certification.

The Bottom Line

With PGT Solar Solutions, residential clients have access to some of the latest solar technology installed by professionals well-versed in tier-1 solar equipment. Property owners that use PGT Solar Solutions will have access to a wide range of panel options including: SEG Solar, Solaria, and REC Alpha.

In addition to utilizing high quality solar panels during installation, PGT Solar Solutions also utilizes some of the best micorverters on the market in Enphase products. Clients of PGT Solar Solutions will have access to comprehensive warranties and will not have to go through a number of hoops to have the system repaired. PGT Solar Solutions also installs battery/solar storage solutions to those looking to be more energy independent. 

There are a number of reasons prospective solar customers should consider PGT Solar Solutions for installation and solar equipment, but there are limitations to be aware of prior to making a final decision. PGT Solar Solutions solely services the Phoenix Valley region. Outside of this area, the company will not be able to take on the project. Additionally, there are no NABCEP-certified technicians or sales team members on the PGT Solar Solutions staff. 

Those looking to access some of the latest tier-1 solar equipment directly from a solar manufacturer would benefit from what PGT Solar Solutions offers its clients. The technology, installation practices, and warranties are some of the best in the renewable energy industry.

PGT Solar Solutions Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I save exactly?

Monthly savings can vary depending on the customer’s home electricity usage and the size of the solar system, but generally the larger the solar system, the bigger the savings. You may even be able to reduce your electric bill down to $0! Try the company's free solar calculator to learn more about how much solar you will need to offset your current utility bill and possible future bill once you can use more power guilt free, i.e. A/C, EV, pool.

How much does it cost to go solar?

You’ll be pleasantly surprised how affordable it is to go solar. With PGT Solar Solutions, you can go solar for $0 down and no upfront cost. Get started with a hassle-free, no obligation solar consultation with the company's team of energy experts. They'll walk you through all your options to help you save on your energy costs from day one. The bottom line is, if you can afford your utility bill you can afford solar.

What are my purchase options?

You can purchase a solar system, or you can lease a solar system from one of PGT Solar Solution’s lease partners for as little as 0% down. Get started with a free quote or try the company's Solar Calculator for a quick quote.

Are there any federal and state incentives still available?

Yes. If you purchase a solar system, the federal government will give you a 30% tax credit on the total you paid which may be used in a single year or spread out over five years. The current federal solar tax (ITC) credit is set to decrease to 26% in 2033, so the time to go solar and save the most is now. Also, the state of Arizona offers a $1,000 tax credit for a new solar system. Leased solar systems are not eligible for tax credits.

Why do I need a solar consultation?

The purpose of a solar consultation is to gather all the needed information to make sure your home is a good fit for solar. This is also a great opportunity to get all your questions answered. Your energy consultant will analyze your energy usage and ask questions about future changes in energy consumption — such as adding a pool or a EV — which can dramatically affect your energy bill. Once your energy consultant has this information, the PGT team of highly qualified design engineers will custom tailor a quote for a system that fits your solar needs.

How long does the solar installation take?

Going solar is a process that involves many different organizations including government, city, HOA, and utility companies. The company's goal is to move the solar project through this process as efficiently as possible. Because of the involvement of so many representatives and agents from outside organizations, it is impossible to give a 100% accurate timetable, but most solar installations take 7-12 weeks from signed contract to completion.

What information does the company need to start my quote?

PGT Solar Solutions strives to get you the lowest price and an accurate quote. Providing the following information is essential to assess your unique needs and avoid any unforeseen electrical or structural issues which will offset your solar installation project. The company requests the following information: 1. Page 1 and 3 of your APS or SRP Electricity Bill. This is the most reliable record of energy consumption for your home and allows the company to develop an energy use profile customized just for you. 2. Photos of your electrical panel showing all breakers, zoomed-in photo showing bus-bar rating (ie "200A"), clear photo of label inside panel, and a photo from ground to roof-line on side of home with electrical panel. Rest assured your energy consultant will provide example pictures before your consultation.

Jonathan Litchfield Park, AZ

We worked with Daryl and he gave us all the information that we needed as well as gave us exact timelines and deadlines. They got our solar system up within the first 30 days. Our system produces more than we need, so we actually haven't had an electricity bill since we've gotten solar. I guess something negative I could say is there are these little black clips that are on the bottom and I'm not sure what they hold up, but they've been blowing off in the wind. 100% worth the money spent. There was a little bit of a delay with the installation, but it was too rainy, so they started about half of it, then the next day they did the other half. On the third day, they came and packed everything up. They were very neat and clean and even helped me move a bunch of roofing tiles to my garage.

I shopped around and talked to 3 different solar companies and honestly, PGT Solar was the most responsive. They got back to me immediately, had a very thorough presentation, gave some great counseling regarding batteries, and had information nobody else had as far as the applicability to my house. My niece's husband has also used Sun Power, not PGT. I've had a fabulous experience, particularly I had to use the warranty on the roof pretty quickly and everything was taken care of immediately. The installation was smooth and seamless- it was a well oiled machine. The team itself was a group of really delightful young men who were transparent as far as what they were doing. They were efficient and kept me apprised of everything. It was done quicker and more efficiently than I thought it was going to be and that included the roofers that came by and got their job the next day. It was pretty amazing. I was impressed with what they told me about their equipment, I really like that the inverter was on each one of the solar panels and then their warranty was long. I have had a couple of notices regarding the system functionality. Somehow the date is not being recorded. I have a little bit of a problem getting my app to sync with the computer, but like I said, they sent people out and we solved the problem within a short period of time. They do what they say; they get back to you within a timeframe that is reasonable, usually 24 to 48 hours, and it's usually before that that the problems were solved with technicians coming out when they needed to. I have had nothing but immediate responses from the company. Even though the problems I had were big, they responded like they said they would.

Thomas Phoenix, AZ

I got about 4 or 5 proposals. With your company, the price was comparable, a couple of other companies got knocked out because they were too high, but you have by far the best proposal information about the process, the actual document itself it was far superior to everybody else. Now, we're saving approximately the amount of dollars that we thought we would and so equipment seems to be working real well. We had one issue during installation and we got it resolved. It took a couple calls, but everything else that we had issues or questions about were were handled properly and in an excellent way. We were informed on installation timing and when it would start. The problem we had was when we got the initial design, we told them that we did not want to see any panels on the very back of our house. So when they were starting to install, it was obvious that we were going to have some panels and I probably screwed up in that when they when I reviewed the actual design, I should have inquired more. In the end, they moved the panels and nothing changed price-wise, so it worked out real well.

Kept me informed during the entire process. When all the agency approvals were in PGT promptly installed the solar panels and within another week we were able to activate our new solar system.
