Headquartered in Front Royal, Virginia, Skyline Solar has been providing residential solar installation services to homeowners across the state since its founding in 2020. The solar company conducts all services — consultation, design, installation, etc. — in-house, and even provides specialized “solar barn” services for farmers and other commercial ventures.
Skyline Solar appears to be a near-fully integrated solar provider, meaning, apart from actually manufacturing the solar components, the company conducts every step of the solar installation process in-house:
Skyline Solar has partnered with some of the biggest names in solar equipment to deliver high-efficiency systems that are built to last.
Solar panels are sourced from industry leaders like Solaria, Hanwha Q CELLS, LG, Panasonic, and Silfab Solar — all of which develop panels with a high efficiency rating, and extended warranties ranging from 10 to 25 years.
Solar inverters meanwhile, are sourced by Enphase and SolarEdge, both considered the best in the business in terms of micro inverter technology, whole-home integration, and energy consumption monitoring.
Panel mounting systems come from IronRidge, Unirac, and S-5!, which provide solar users with the best roof and ground racking equipment available.
And finally, the company allows customers the option to upgrade their systems through the following solar backup options:
Skyline Solar also provides homeowners with zero-down financing to help them save on solar energy from day one. Considering the typical solar panel system in Virginia can cost up to $20,000, a zero-down loan represents massive upfront savings. Customers who finance through a loan also qualify for the Federal Solar Tax Credit, which translates to more savings.
Skyline Solar only provides customers the option to purchase or loan their solar panel systems; the company does not employ solar leases or power purchase agreements (PPA), which can be cost-effective alternatives for homeowners with limited means.
The company only serves customers in Virginia, and given the increasing number of solar companies operating in that state, homeowners are strongly encouraged to read verified Skyline Solar reviews prior to obtaining a free consultation.
Skyline Solar is clear about the robust materials warranties included in each of its solar panel systems; however, the company has yet to exercise similar candor toward its workmanship warranty, if one exists.
The workmanship warranty applies to the labor required to install the system, and protects customers from paying for errors or damage caused by the installation team. Leading solar companies attach workmanship warranties good for 25 years.
Skyline Solar does not appear to be certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), which authors some of the most highly regarded solar installation training programs in the industry.
While this in no way suggests poor quality on Skyline Solar’s part, the presence of this certification can be compelling for homeowners looking for true solar experts to design and install their system.
