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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
