The Good

  • High-Efficiency Solar Products
  • Broad Service Area
  • Multiple Home Improvement Services

High-Efficiency Solar Products

Smart Energy Today offers homeowners a range of high-quality solar panels and inverters to help them reduce their monthly utility bill as well as their impact on the environment.

In addition to installing panels from industry leaders like LG, Canadian Solar, and Jinko, the Washington-based company also works with local solar panel manufacturers like Made in WA. Smart Energy Today also installs micro inverters from SolarEdge, one of the top inverter and monitoring providers in solar.

Customers of Smart Energy Solar consequently receive a 25-year equipment warranty for their solar panel systems.

Broad Service Area

Smart Energy Today does work in the following states:

  • California
  • Idaho
  • Montana
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Washington

Considering the company has been in business since 2008, and has installed tens of thousands of kilowatts of solar energy, this broad service area suggests that Smart Energy Today has maintained a consistent standard of solar installation quality across its various locations. 

Multiple Home Improvement Services

In addition to quality, long lasting solar energy systems, Smart Energy Today provides the following services:

  • Smart Air Ventilation™ — A solar fan that can be installed on any kind of roof, and circulates air in the attic to prevent mold, mildew, and wood rot. It also reduces the burden of your current HVAC system by managing the temperature and humidity in your attic, gable, or crawl space.
  • Sol-Blanket Insulation™ — A radiant blanket that reflects up to 97 percent of the radiant heat in your attic that keeps the home warm in winter months, and cool in the summer. The Sol-Blanket™ is also effective at protecting the home against mold and common household pests.
  • QuietCool Whole House Fans — A whole-house ventilation system that reduces utility costs, increases savings, and promotes clean air circulation. 
  • Traditional insulation — Expert-led home insulation service that calculates the precise level of insulation the home needs.
  • Roofing — Comes with a 15-year service and labor warranty and includes a variety of roofing materials, including asphalt, slate, and wood shingles, fiberglass, metal, and solar roof materials.

The Bad

  • Undisclosed Workmanship Warranty
  • No Solar Lease or PPA

Undisclosed Workmanship Warranty

Although Smart Energy Today discloses its labor warranty for its roof installation and repair services, the company has not applied similar transparency to its solar PV systems.

Most solar companies provide workmanship warranties up to 10 years on the solar panel systems; leading companies, up to 25 years.

No Solar Lease or PPA

Smart Energy Today does not provide solar leases or power purchase agreements. Both options prove incredibly cost-effective as they place the financial burden of ownership (installation, maintenance, etc.) on the installing company.

That said, a solar loan through Smart Energy Today can save customers up to hundreds of dollars a month on their electric bill.

Abandoned in Spokane Renton, WA

Great for the first five years. Now, voice recording and no one ever calls back. Left with a system and no service. Warranty is a joke.
