The Good

  • Variety of Payment Options
  • High Quality Equipment
  • Paperwork Assistance

Variety of Payment Options

Solar Energy World currently offers three different payment options: outright purchase, loan, and PPA. Customers who choose to pay for their system in full or take advantage of Solar Energy World's financing will have the opportunity to cash in on Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) and other federal and state incentives. The average return-on-investment for customers who purchase their systems is typically around 125 percent within 5 to 7 years. In 20 years, homeowners who purchase solar can expect to see a 500 percent ROI. Customers who choose to go the PPA route can have a system installed on their roof for $0 down. Solar PPA customers will simply pay for the energy being produced by the panels on their roof at a rate of at least 20 percent less than their current monthly electric bill.

High Quality Equipment

Solar Energy World has stated that it only installs high-efficiency, best-in-class solar PV panels engineered in Germany, China, and the United States. The company mostly uses products from Hanwa, LG, REC, and Trina. Both rooftop and ground mount systems are available, and each system is custom designed by Solar Energy World's in-house engineers to fit the customer's unique energy needs. Additionally, Solar Energy World never hires subcontractors in order to ensure that its customers receive superior service. This means that every person who works on your system is a direct employee of Solar Energy World.

Paperwork Assistance

Solar Energy World takes care of all paperwork and permits for its customers to make sure that the process is hassle-free and the customer receives all tax incentives, rebates, and grants that they are entitled to.

The Bad

  • Limited Availability
  • Unclear Moving Options

Limited Availability

Solar Energy World only offers its services in Maryland, York and Lancaster counties in Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C., so if you live elsewhere, you won't be able to do business with Solar Energy World. While being a local provider has its advantages, it also greatly reduces the number of consumers who have access to the company's services.

Unclear Moving Options

Solar Energy World's website doesn't provide much information regarding moving policies. For example, the website doesn't state whether or not a customer's system is transferrable to the new owner should they decide to sell their home. This is something that should be discussed with a company representative before signing.

The Bottom Line

Solar Energy World has over eight years of experience in the solar industry and offers multiple payment options and high quality equipment. The company even offers paperwork assistance, which makes the customer experience simple and hassle-free. Solar Energy World is recommended to consumers who live within its service area of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C.

    On balance they are a good company that I would recommend. But, a little remiss in keeping customers informed. Further, it has been 10 pos since my system was running and I have still not received my MD subsidy payment

    They gave me more solar panels than the competition. As a result I have seen a tremendous decrease in my electric bill. I have another reason to smile on sunny days.

    The salesman, Eric W was honest, easy to work with, didn't try to oversell the project or type of panels, and they were the lowest cost out of 4 companies I reviewed. In addition, it was NOT a high pressure sales job. I wasn't forced to decide on the spot to get an ultra-reduced price. I was provided with a list of customers to call regarding their experience and homes where I could view the panels. Unlike some companies, they put as much cabling in the attic out of site versus having the unsightly cabling all over the roof. The panels are generating the expected amount of energy and I'm enjoying watching my meter run backwards. This is a great company.

    Low price for high quality work. Installation happened in one day. Very helpful through most of the process, including applying for the MEA grant. -1 Star because it took a long time from signature to turn-on (might not be Solar Energy World's fault), and some communications difficulties regarding SRECs and permits.
