Sol-Ark is a veteran-founded company headquartered in Texas. Home of the Sol-Ark inverter, Sol-Ark prides itself on saving its customers significant money by relying more on solar energy and less on traditional grid energy.
The company is rated number one on Energy Sage as a top solar energy customer service provider, offers seven day a week customer service, and is highly sought after for its unique Sol-Ark inverter.
Sol-Ark's unique trademark comes from its all-inclusive inverter. Inverters are important elements in a solar energy system, often making or breaking the amount of money customers save when switching to solar.
Sol-Ark developed a special inverter that carries more wattage ability (12K) than typical inverters, making it one of the best inverters on the market. The inverters are a hybrid inverter model, meaning that the energy each solar panel produces is conditioned before going into storage. This can help increase energy conservation, and Sol-Ark promises a 50 percent reduced cost to customer’s energy bill.
Sol-Ark’s inverter can also be used with or without a battery. Having a battery with the inverter means customers can save energy produced during the day and store it for nighttime or power outages. They can also sell the energy back to the grid for solar credits that will be applied to their future energy bill. With Sol-Ark’s inverter, customers can choose to include or exclude a battery.
If customers choose to include a battery with their inverter, Sol-Ark offers 10 battery partners customers can choose from, although any battery with 48V power will do. All partners have batteries with 48V power and work with Sol-Ark to provide the best possible power saving for your inverter.
Based on hundreds of reviews, Sol-Ark consistently rates as one of the best solar companies for customer service. It is rated as number one on Energy Sage for price transparency, remote monitoring, and its Sol-Ark inverter.
Another unique feature of Sol-Ark is a feature called the Solar Battery Calculator. Located on the company’s website, customers can enter in data about their energy consumption, sunlight hours, average monthly electric bill, and a wide variety of devices and appliances that use energy.
Using this feature can be exceptionally helpful for customers to understand what their energy bill would look like with Sol-Ark. Many companies offer a similar breakdown of costs by scheduling a meeting with an agent, but with Sol-Ark, customers can do it independently as well see what changes would occur if their appliance needs to be changed, etc.
Similar to the Solar Battery Calculator, Sol-Ark offers a visual display of a home and solar panels with clickable options to remove or include certain elements of a solar energy system.
Customers can select if they will be using a battery, grid sell-back, PV coupling, Generator, and number of systems.
This is a way that customers can understand how the system will look on their home before purchasing and is a unique feature not typically offered among solar panel companies.
Little information about payment options is found on Sol-Ark’s website. It does, however, list several companies with which customers can finance their solar panels, such as Sunlight Financial, LoanPal, and Mosaic.
These partners likely offer a variety of solar energy payment plans (like loans, leases, or PPAs); however, this information is not easily accessible on Sol-Ark’s website. Customers should be aware of this and make sure to research all payment options before choosing Sol-Ark.
