The Bad

  • New to the Industry
  • Costs Not Included
  • Limited Photon Brothers Reviews

New to the Industry

The company is rather new to the industry, and has only been in business since 2013. However, Photon Brothers installs panels produced by well-established panel manufacturer SunPower, as well as employs veteran installation technicians with over 8 years of experience.

Costs Not Included

Payment options are explained as in-depth as we would like compared to some of the top solar companies within the industry.

Limited Photon Brothers Reviews

Unfortunately, few verified Photon Brothers reviews are available online. Homeowners interested in learning more about Photon Bros services, installation process, and solar array options, may have difficulty finding this information from trusted, objective sources.

Verified reviews are rapidly becoming an essential component to a solar provider's online reputation, and a mainstay in the solar industry at large.


The Bottom Line

Photon Brothers claims to provide excellent customer service from start to finish. Residents of Colorado and California can get solar for the home installed in a stress-free and efficient manner. Photon Brothers' installers have multiple years of experience in the industry, and customers can expect a 25-year warranty on all solar panels. For the most part, the website is transparent about their solar solutions except for the following: inverter and workmanship warranties, online monitoring, costs, and financing information.

Robin Jones-Allen Pueblo, CO

I went with Photon Brothers one year ago this month. Calculations show I have saved $1600.00 in electricity since the panels went up. I did not have to pay one penny until the job was completed. There is a critter screen so birds etc cannot make nests under the panels. The staff is wonderful at Photon Brothers stay with you and help you understand your new equipment. Any doubts, questions, anything. Just call and they will be there. I contacted them one year later and was contacted back same day. I fully recommend proton brothers for your solar needs. If anyone wishes to contact me please feel free. Robin Jones-Allen
