Slingshot Power is striving to lead the way in a clean energy revolution. It is a SunPower Premier dealer and is located in several areas of California. Slingshot Power's team combined has hundreds of years experience from a variety of different organizations. Slingshot's energy ambassadors provide a free energy assessment to help determine the best way for you to go solar.
Slingshot Power offers a few different options for you to get going with solar. First, if you want to own your panels then you can go with the buy option which provides you with the greatest potential for savings. While there is a steep upfront cost, over time, your panels could be paying for themselves.
Also, the option to get a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) or lease is available with Slingshot Power. These options can come with no money down which makes going solar even easier for you, however, a third party will own the system. That means you won't receive the 30% federal tax credit. Leasing your solar equipment will require you to pay Slingshot Power a monthly rental and power fee which more often than not, less than what you currently pay your power provider. The PPA allows you to purchase your power (whatever you use) at a flat rate for the length of the agreement.
A great benefit of going solar with Slingshot Power is its free annual maintenance which you won't see with many other solar companies.
Slingshot Power helps its customers out by offering a re-roofing program. If your roof needs to be redone, Slingshot will uninstall as well as reinstall your system for free.
Slingshot Power does an excellent job providing information regarding the kinds of panels they use for installations. You don't see companies doing this very often within the industry so it's nice to see the transparency with their equipment.
While doing research on Slingshot Power, we were able to find a limited amount of information in regard to the payment options available. However, we have no idea for sure how long Slingshot's contracts are. The company mentions that it would like to have a "25 year relationship" with its customers but is that referring to the lease or PPA or something else?
Slingshot Power only services certain zip codes in California. So if you live close enough to use Slingshot Power as your solar provider, great! If not, you may want to look somewhere else for your solar needs.
We couldn't find any information relating to a mobile app of any kind for you to check the production of your panels and usage of power. Top companies within the industry have developed their own apps to give customers this feature.
