The Good

  • Free Evaluation Survey
  • Multiple Financing Options

Free Evaluation Survey

Solar Is Freedom offers homeowners a free, no-commitment solar evaluation. 

A company representative will personally come to your house, provide you with all the necessary information about solar, and determine if your property can handle a solar system. 

Multiple Financing Options

According to the company website, Solar Is Freedom offers several payment options. Homeowners may use cash, financing, or a blended model. If there are any questions, customers are encouraged to call and speak with someone on Solar Is Freedom’s finance team. 

The Bad

  • Website Lacks Specific Information
  • Limited Service Area

Website Lacks Specific Information

Solar Is Freedom’s website welcomes homeowners with a simple and straightforward layout. However, the information on Solar Is Freedom’s site is more general than one would hope. Instead of providing specifics about the company’s warranties, equipment, certifications, and whether or not the company outsources projects, the website hosts a lot of general information about solar systems and savings. 

While it is likely that more specific details are shared with homeowners who take the time to fill out the Free Consultation form and are contacted by the company, it would be nice if Solar Is Freedom provided all this information on its website. 

Limited Service Area

Solar Is Freedom offers its services in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.  

The Cincinnati office services the greater Cincinnati region (including Southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky), as well as surrounding counties in Ohio.

The Columbus location services the greater Columbus, Ohio region, including surrounding counties and Dayton. 

Lastly, the Louisville location services the greater Louisville area, including Southeast Indiana. This particular location also services central and southern Kentucky (including Frankfort and Lexington). 

Although Solar Is Freedom’s service area runs across three states, and the company mentions general areas that are serviced. It would be wise for homeowners to call and ask if their home is within the service area. We recommend making this phone call before filling out the online form. 

The Bottom Line

Solar Is Freedom is dedicated to helping homeowners learn more about the benefits of solar and its website provides a decent amount of information. However, the site mainly provides general solar information that isn’t specifically related to the company and its services. While Solar Is Freedom may be a decent choice for those living within the service area, we recommend calling the company and asking about its warranties, payment options, service area, equipment, and more.

I had panels installed in winter of 2019 (been a little cloudy so won't see BIG savings till spring and summer). They have been a great company to work with. Very professional! Brian was my point of contact and was one of the reasons i picked Solar is Freedom. He knew his subject and kept me up to date on what was happening and when. The installers were also very professional. Fast-neat and very efficient. Glad I picked them.

From start to finish, I have been impressed by the professionalism and communication that we have experienced as we discerned the best way forward for our project, as they moved through the installation phase, and in their follow-up to ensure our satisfaction.

Solar Is Freedom has done an absolutely phenomenal job! The sales team, installers, and customer support were all super professional and blew us away with the responsiveness and workmanship. I have already recommended them to my parents and neighbors and would highly recommend working with them. They also have opportunities to stay involved with the solar community and came back out to make sure everything we were promised we got. A fantastic company with integrity, that does what they say they are going to do. Already seeing savings after our first bill!

Solar is Freedom is hands down the right choice. From the moment Sales rep came to our house to discuss us getting solar we felt comfortable. Very thorough, and just down to earth. Their price was far better than any other offered we looked at. From moment installation started to finish all the team was awesome. Could not be more happy with the service and would recommend them to anyone.

We met with Solar is Freedom at the home show. After talking to them, we had them out for our engineering survey. Throughout the process they have been very informative. They never over hype what they can do and made us feel very comfortable with the process. Our Sales rep, Evan is great to work with.

We had a 33 panel solar array installed by Solar is Freedom and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Our contact Evan D. was extremely patient with my wife and I while we contemplated making the decision to go solar or not. He came out multiple times to our home and presented the benefits and cons to the whole process in a concise and easily understood manner. The installers also did a great job. We hardly even knew they were there During installation. It went seamlessly and they cleaned up after themselves. The first bill was a pleasant surprise as we actually made more energy than we consumed and got a $10 credit on our electric bill. That was even better than expected for the capabilities of our system. Overall I’m very happy we went solar and used Solar is Freedom as our installer. Would recommend them 100 times over to anyone interested. Ask for Evan when you call.

We started investigating solar in mid-December with no knowledge of solar and little commitment that we'd go forward. Chris S knew that when he first met with us. He is great...a conversation and no pressure! He returned in early January with a proposal...that's when I started my calls for references and more investigations. We decided that we liked the savings on our electric bill that solar offers and trusted Chris to provide us what they proposed. Installation was very professional and diligent. Our electric supplier installed our reversing meter the first morning that we were ready to go! I'm addicted to the app that monitors our solar production and now I've found myself looking outside, guessing our wattage from looking at the sky...and comparing my guess to the app's production stats. Bottom line...Solar is Freedom is as professional a company as you'd wish to deal with.

We had a solar system installed by Solar Is Freedom. They are a great company! Our salesman was Evan D, he not only did a great job presenting the solar plan for our home, every one is different based on your needs, he even suggested that some of our money would be better spent replacing our 22 year old central air system to lower our electric usage. A great idea that we took advantage of. He could have just sold us enough panels to cover all our bill, but Evan saw an opportunity to help us in two ways. All the installers were great as well. Very friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions as well as friends who stopped by to watch the installation. I highly recommend Solar Is Freedom, they look at the whole picture and give you the best advice for your situation. Plus they were half the price of the other estimate we got for a solar system for our home. Andrew Rohrbach Sr.

We decided to go with Solar Is Freedom, for the main reasons of very effective power production, competitive cost and high-quality materials backed up with a full 25-year service warranty including parts and labor. Alex H, Sales Consultant; and Jake T, Sales Manager; were very knowledgeable, friendly and put no pressure on the outcome. They explained the long-term advantages of solar production, addressed all questions and concerns, and were happy to pursue the variance application with our HOA Architectural Review Committee (ARC) and building permit with the city. We love the fact we are saving money and doing our part to positively affect our environment too. As the cost of power continues to increase, our solar production will become even more valuable.

Our experience with Solar is Freedom has been spectacular! Alex H is our rep and has been super helpful throughout the whole process. The installers were awesome and answered a hundred questions from me during their time here. We did quite a bit of homework, and had a few quotes before we came to Solar is Freedom. Really happy with our choice. Thanks Alex H for helping us in our solar journey!
