LAST UPDATED: April 18th, 2022

Rooftop Solar has worked to provide clean energy solutions at an affordable rate since its founding in 2008. Founding partners and cousins Hadassah, Seth, and Jason were left with a lasting impression when their Grandpa Holland first installed a solar system on his own home in 2002.

At the time, there were no tax incentives, and solar was substantially more important. However, Holland believed in using alternative and clean energy solutions and was willing to take the steps necessary to reduce his own carbon footprint. That instilled the importance of renewable energy and its power on the founders who decided to make solar more accessible for residential and commercial property owners. 

Rooftop Solar can manage all aspects of the solar process from start to finish. Whether it is the sale, design, or ultimately installation, the professionals at Rooftop Solar will manage it all. 

Rooftop Solar is partnered and certified with a number of solar organizations and groups. Rooftop Solar is a part of AMICUS, is NABCEP certified, has an A+ rating with the BBB, winner of the Best of Business by Flagstaff Business News, SEIA, a member of the Arizona Solar Energy Association, part of the Go Solar California movement, and offers an approved service by Green America.

The Good

  • Equipment Partners
  • Workmanship Warranty
  • Solar Battery Storage
  • Valuable Certifications

Equipment Partners

Solar installation companies and solar manufacturing companies work in conjunction to bring solar power to residential and commercial property owners. With so many solar installation companies and not as many equipment producers, installation operations have to work to develop a relationship and engage equipment partners.

This has simply not been an issue for Rooftop Solar. Because the Rooftop Solar is highly trained and certified, the team can manage and install nearly any brand of solar equipment. The company also has the ability to obtain almost any manufactured solar system on the market, whereas most solar installation companies can only install one or two specific brands.

Just this year, Rooftop Solar has installed equipment from the following companies:

  • LG
  • Q Cell
  • Axitec
  • Rec
  • Enphase
  • Fronius
  • Tesla

Workmanship Warranty

As a highly trained and certified staff, Rooftop Solar goes above and beyond to protect its clients’ solar investment. Most solar installation companies offer some sort of workmanship warranty. This warranty protects against any issues that result due to poor installation techniques. The industry standard workmanship warranty hovers around 10 years.

Rooftop Solar offers an industry-leading, 30-year workmanship warranty to its clients. With a completely certified, licensed, bonded, and insured installation team, Rooftop Solar clients can rest easy knowing that the installation quality is as good as the equipment being installed.

Solar Battery Storage

When solar panels are installed along with lithium batteries, property owners are put in complete control over their own power supply. Whether clients are wanting their property to be free of power outages or entirely self-powered, solar battery backup makes it possible.

Not every solar installation company offers solar battery or storage solutions. Additionally, Rooftop Solar is an authorized installer of the ever popular Tesla Powerwall battery and backup storage product.

Valuable Certifications

While certifications are not necessarily required to install a solar system, they can give consumers great peace of mind. With how much solar installation and equipment costs, clients want their system to perform efficiently and at a high level. In order for a solar system to do that, it has to be installed perfectly.

Rooftop Solar is certified in roofing, electrical, and as a dual building contractor:

Electrical Certifications

  • AZ ROC #283620 - R- 11
  • CSLB #988463 - B

General Contractors

  • AZ ROC #276363 - KB-1
  • CSLB #988462 - C46

Additional Certifications

  • NABCEP Certified
  • OSHA 10/30 Certified (All installers)
  • NFPA-70E Certified

Not many solar installation companies are triple threats when it comes to certifications, but Rooftop Solar is.

The Bad

  • Service Area
  • Recurring Maintenance

Service Area

Some solar companies provide solar installation services in multiple states, cover a region of the country, or hire out projects on a national level. However, most solar installation companies only service the state in which it is headquartered.

Rooftop Solar is a little bit different in that it does provide services in two different states, but it does not cover the full state in either case. Rooftop Solar offers solar installation services in both Arizona and California, but only in a select few areas:

  • California — San Diego
  • Arizona — Flagstaff, Prescott, Phoenix, Sedona

Residential and commercial property owners outside of these cities/areas will have to look elsewhere for solar installation services. 

Recurring Maintenance

A solar system will typically function at a high level anywhere from 25 to 30 years after installation. In order to keep the system functioning at this high level, many solar installation companies are starting to offer maintenance services in addition to sales and installation services.

Over time, debris and weather can impact the overall function of solar panels. To combat or prevent further issues, many solar installation companies will schedule routine maintenance to ensure a high level of energy production.

While solar systems do not require much attention after being installed, there is a basic level of care that should be administered. At this time, Rooftop Solar does not offer a recurring maintenance or cleaning package to its clients.

The Bottom Line

Rooftop Solar provides comprehensive solar services and has partnered with some of the biggest names in the solar manufacturing business. The company offers an industry-leading workmanship warranty, allowing clients to rest assured that their system will function and produce power properly.

Rooftop Solar is a certified Tesla Powerwall installer and can consult on solar battery storage solutions. The company is certified and trained in every facet of solar equipment, ensuring a complete professional service.

At this time, Rooftop Solar only services select cities in Arizona and southern California. This drastically limits the number of property owners Rooftop Solar can service. Additionally, Rooftop Solar does not offer ongoing care and maintenance during the lifespan of the system.

Even with the company’s limitations, Rooftop Solar offers a high-quality service and product that a majority of residential and commercial property owners would benefit from. Prospective solar clients should seriously consider Rooftop Solar for sales and installation services.
