The Solar Panel Doctors is a family-owned and operated solar solutions company that operates throughout Southern California. The company specializes in solar panel cleaning, maintenance, and repair services. It can also install PV, pool, and water heating solutions, remove and re-install existing solar panels, install efficiency tilt systems, and place bird deterrents. The Solar Panel Doctors can activate and replace Enphase Energy micro-inverters and SolarEdge optimizers, as well.
While most solar companies try to draw in consumers with promises of initial savings and quick installation times, these services are meant to entice consumers who don’t already have a solar system.
The Solar Panel Doctors does things differently and primarily focuses on homeowners who already have a solar system. Although the company offers installation services, The Solar Panel Doctors specializes in cleaning, maintenance, and repair services.
Solar panels are incredibly durable but not indestructible. And, the older your panels are, the less efficient they become, especially if they are not properly maintained. Unfortunately, there is a lack of qualified companies/individuals who can properly restore a solar system. That’s where The Solar Panel Doctors come in.
The Solar Panel Doctors is an excellent resource for homeowners simply because it offers such a variety of solar services. Whether you are scheduling a routine cleaning or need a cracked panel fixed, the company is capable of handling just about anything. If necessary, the company can even remove an entire solar system from your roof.
The company includes some general pricing information on The Solar Panel Doctors’ website. This is extremely helpful for consumers, but unfortunately, not common within the industry. We appreciate the company including this information as it allows consumers to get a ballpark figure for how much their service will cost without contacting the company directly.
Unfortunately, some important information is missing from The Solar Panel Doctors website that we feel would help consumers make an informed decision as to whether or not they should work with this company.
The Solar Panel Doctors' website doesn’t include any information regarding warranty lengths. The company installs solar panels, but we don’t know which brands, so we can’t even guess how much or little coverage you’ll receive.
Additionally, there is also no mention of whether or not the company offers a warranty on its cleaning, maintenance, or repair services. This leaves consumers wondering what happens if they are unsatisfied with the provided service. Will they get their money back? Or will the company come out and re-clean the panels for free?
Because this information is not disclosed, we highly recommend asking about this during a consultation. Ensure you know exactly how long the warranty lasts and what is covered.
The website does not mention working with a specific bank or financial institution to help consumers finance a new solar system or repair an existing one. This could be problematic for consumers who don’t want or can’t pay for everything upfront. Again, we encourage consumers to ask about this. The Solar Panel Doctors may be willing to disclose more information during a consultation.
We know that The Solar Panel Doctors office is located in Anaheim, California, and the company operates throughout Southern California. However, the website does not include which cities are within the service area.
Unfortunately, because The Solar Panel Doctors keeps its service area somewhat vague, many consumers will look into the company — possibly even schedule a consultation or site visit — only to find out that they are not eligible due to being outside the service area.
