Purelight Power was founded in 2019 and designs and installs solar power systems in Oregon, Montana, and Iowa. The process begins with a free, no-pressure consultation designed to educate customers on whether their roof qualifies for solar, and how much they could save on their energy bill based on their energy needs. Then, the company designs a solar system to maximize their savings and shows them what that system would look like on their roof. Purelight Power then handles the permitting and inspections process before installing the panels and showing the customer how to monitor them.

After installation, as part of the Purelight family, customers are encouraged to reach out with questions or concerns.

The Good

  • CO2 Neutral Company
  • Performance Guarantee
  • Financial Savings

CO2 Neutral Company

Purelight Power has earned the CO2 Neutral label from Vincotte, a third-party company that inspects, assesses, trains, and certifies businesses based on safety and efficiency standards. The CO2 Neutral label means that Purelight Power has reduced its CO2 emissions and provides compensation for its remaining CO2 emissions. 

Performance Guarantee

Purelight Power provides a number of warranties, including a 20-year equipment warranty and a 10-year workmanship warranty. These are in line with industry standards.

But where Purelight Power excels is in its performance guarantee. Purelight Power provides a 25-year performance guarantee — if a customer’s solar power system doesn’t produce the energy that Purelight Power said it would, the company will pay the difference.

Financial Savings

Purelight Power customers can obtain a solar power system for zero down and zero out of pocket. Instead, customers pay locked-in monthly payments, often at a lower rate than their current electric bill. Purelight Power also works to help customers connect to and qualify for state and federal incentives including the Federal Solar Tax Credit to help recoup the cost of their system. All of these efforts are designed to make solar simple and affordable for every customer.

The Bad

  • Undisclosed Solar Brands
  • No NABCEP Certification
  • No Solar Batteries

Undisclosed Solar Brands

Although Purelight Power does describe its panels as top-of-the-line, and provides a 20-year manufacturer's warranty on all systems, the company does not mention specific solar manufacturers on its site. Panels and inverters vary from brand to brand, and can greatly influence the overall price, durability, and energy efficiency of the solar panel system.

No NABCEP Certification

Purelight Power does not appear to hold a certification from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), a nationally recognized organization responsible for some of the most respected and sought after technician training programs in the solar industry. While the lack of a certification should not disqualify Purelight Power from consideration, its presence can make the difference for homeowners comparing multiple solar providers in their area.

No Solar Batteries

Purelight Power does not as yet provide solar batteries or energy storage as a means of upgrading the solar panel system. Solar storage solutions improve the overall efficiency of the system because they can reduce the home's dependence on the electrical grid and can be used in the event of a grid outage or other emergency.

The Bottom Line

Purelight Power installs solar power systems in Oregon and Iowa. According to the company’s website, customers can save up to $41,000 on their utilities with $0 down when they install a solar power system through Purelight Power.

The solar company provides a 20-year equipment warranty and a 10-year workmanship warranty, both of which are fairly standard for the solar industry. Purelight Power also guarantees the performance of its systems for 25 years. If a client’s solar panel system doesn’t provide the amount of power that Purelight Power said it would, the company will pay the difference. This is above and beyond what many solar companies offer and encourages a great deal of confidence in Purelight Power’s services.

Purelight Power is also a Vincotte Validated CO2 Neutral company. This means that Vincotte, a third party, has certified that Purelight Power has reduced its CO2 emissions and pays to offset the rest. This distinguishes the company from its competitors and demonstrates its commitment to combating climate change.

Where Purelight Power falls short is in the details listed on its website, which doesn’t specify the company’s pricing, financing options, or service area. These could be gleaned from a consultation with the company; however, it makes comparing solar companies at a glance more time consuming for potential customers.

However, Purelight Power’s dedication to clean energy and impressive performance guarantee make this solar company one worth looking into.

Zachary Smith

So my wife and I got 3 quotes. We tend to go with the company that’s middle of the road. We had a close friend that went with this company so we were already leaning towards PureLight and they were the middle priced company so it was a no brainer. E V E R Y T H I N G was east with this company. The two other companies were a typical sales force. These guys were more professional and confident in their product which spilled over to us. At the time of estimate and install we were in the middle of a pandemic so we had to wait 2 months for install. I loved how they kept in contact and let us know each time we got closer to the day of install. When that beautiful day came, the install was so much faster than we thought it was going to be. The next step was a wait due to the power company so not on PureLight. Once the switch was flipped, we got a super excellent and knowledge sharing cruise through the system and the app. He even showed me what the codes are on the meter. I of course forgot what they mean. Lol. Anywho…..super proud of who we went through and the product we’re rocking on the roof.
