LAST UPDATED: November 25th, 2023

SunPower by Quality Home Services is a locally owned and operated company that has been in the same family since 1985. Quality Home Services is a Master Dealer of the tier-1 solar equipment manufacturer, SunPower. 

Quality Home Services did not originally begin as a solar installation company, but it was a natural transition. In 1985, Bart Richey and Donna Holstein set out to create a clean and safe water resource for residents in the central valley of California. With only three total employees, the founders set off to start B&D Quality Water, which operated as an affiliate of RainSoft Water Treatment. The company quickly rose to prominence and was named a top 10 dealer in the United States.

Continuing the mission of creating safe resources and products, Quality Home Services started to offer varying services including air purification units, tankless water heaters, generators, and Tesla Powerwalls. Eventually, the company recognized the power and need for solar installation services and a partnership with SunPower was created.

Since its founding, Quality Home Services has worked to provide alternative and safe every day products for property owners in central California. The company, now headed by the founders’ children, continue to pursue the vision their parents initially set for the valley.

The Good

  • SunPower Difference
  • Storage and Battery Solutions
  • Monthly Financing Options
  • Ground Mount Solar Options

SunPower Difference

One of the biggest draws to the Quality Home Services operation is its direct partnership with SunPower. SunPower offers some of the highest rated solar panels in the industry, boasting tier-1 efficiency status. Since Quality Home Services is directly affiliated with SunPower, clients will rest assured knowing the equipment and workmanship on all systems installed are backed by 25-year warranties. Regardless of where the issue stems, the equipment or workmanship warranty will likely cover any and all issues.

With access to the manufacturer, Quality Home Services can provide a completely customized solar system solution to each property owner. Not all solar installation companies have this type of direct relationship with the actual solar manufacturer. This relationship allows Quality Home Services clients to cut through any purchasing and repair red tape. 

Storage and Battery Solutions

To maximize a solar system, a battery or storage system can go a long way. And not all solar installation companies offer storage or battery solutions to clients.

The company is a SunVault™ and Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer, offering cutting-edge solutions that empower homeowners to take control of their energy production and reduce reliance on the grid.

This all-in-one approach simplifies energy management even during outages. 

Monthly Financing Options

Solar systems are a financial investment, and while most systems will save property owners thousands of dollars during their lifetime, the initial costs can be steep. Some property owners can pay for the system upfront and outright initially, but cash clients are few and far between as the average solar system costs $15,000–$25,000.

Quality Home Services offers the typical financing solutions including leasing and loan options, but it also goes above and beyond to provide a monthly financing option. The company's website boasts a zero down and $69 per month payment. Note that eligibility requirements may apply, and system size depends on the home size and energy needs. 

By offering these financing options, Quality Home Services is only increasing the number of clients that can access clean, renewable energy. 

Ground Mount Solar Options

Roof-mounted solar solutions are not the only option on the market, despite what some solar installation companies may claim. While not all solar installation companies have the ability to offer ground-mounted solutions, Quality Home Services does. In circumstances where the system would be more efficient on the ground, Quality Home Services will make it happen. So property owners who have an oddly orientated or pitched roof can still access solar power through Quality Home Services.

Many solar installation companies would be unable to service this type of property. Additionally, many ground-mounted solar systems receive better air circulation which leads to higher energy production and efficiency ratings. These systems are also significantly easier to maintain and clean. Providing this mounting option sets Quality Home Services apart from the rest of the industry.

The Bad

  • Limited Service Area
  • No NABCEP Certification

Limited Service Area

As is the case for many qualified dealers and installers, the service area for Quality Home Services is restricted to covering just Fresno and Bakersfield. Dealers are only granted rights to certain service areas before those operations infringe upon another dealer of the same product.

No NABCEP Certification

While Quality Home Services is certified with SunPower for equipment installation, it does not appear to have NABCEP-certified professionals on staff. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is widely recognized as the gold standard of certification within the renewable energy field.

The Bottom Line

Quality Home Services is a SunPower dealer that services the central region of California. With the SunPower connection, Quality Home Services can provide tier-1 solar equipment to every client and solar project. And for properties where a roof mount is not possible or not as efficient as it should be, Quality Home Services offers a ground mount solution.

To keep clients from experiencing interrupted energy from the solar system, Quality Home Services also installs storage and battery solutions eliminating the power outage issue.

Considering all contributing factors, prospective solar customers in the Fresno and Bakersfield area would likely benefit from what Quality Home Services has to offer. Outside of these areas, solar consumers will need to look elsewhere for solar and storage installation.

Marcus Matthews Sacramento, CA

The team at Sunpower was incredibly helpful in meeting our solar needs without trying to sell us more than was necessary. We are closing in on our first year since going solar and our system has generated a bit more power than we used throughout the year. It looks like we will owe nothing at true up, in fact, we will likely have a credit! Thank you, Sunpower.

They were always on top of responding to my question and answering any concerns that I had. When working with the installer they were honest and made sure I knew what the plan was and how they needed to modify it.
