The Good

  • Variety of Services
  • Partnerships and Certifications
  • Free Solar Quotes

Variety of Services

While the solar company specializes in in energy storage, Solar SME offers a number of solar-related services. The company can provide customized residential solar systems with a projected completion time of less than 12 weeks. The company also offers commercial solar systems, solar panel cleaning and maintenance, solar system repair, and roofing repair and maintenance.

Partnerships and Certifications

Solar SME works with respected solar equipment manufacturers and is an LG Pro Authorized Partner and Panasonic Solar Authorized Installer. Solar SME is also a Pearl-certified company*, meaning customers who make home improvements through Solar SME can expect to see at least five percent increase to the resale value of their home.

*Solar SME's Pearl Certification is only valid in Texas

In addition to the company's Pearl Certification status, Solar SME has also been certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).

Free Solar Quotes

Solar SME provides free quotes to interested individuals. Those who would like to take advantage of this opportunity will be able to meet with one of the company’s experienced energy consultants and receive an custom system quote.

The Bad

  • Limited National Reach

Limited National Reach

Solar SME currently provides residential and commercial solar services to 12 states. While this is demonstrably more than the majority of solar contractors, whose service areas are limited to one or two states, some industry-leading companies span as many as 25 states without sacrificing quality of service.

The Bottom Line

Solar SME offers a number of solar services, including residential and commercial solar systems, system maintenance, panel cleaning, and roof repair. The company works with top equipment providers, offers free quotes, and is commited to improving home value for Texas homeowners. While customers within the company's 12-state service area can finance their systems through purchase, ppa, lease, or loan, they should also inquire as to the company's industry certifcations before signing a contract.

Excellent experience with Xavier L, one of their energy consultants. He took time explaining the different solar panel options and their pros and con. I felt very comfortable going through the quote process and his response time was outstanding, within minutes he had feedback. Solar SME provides excellent value for their service.

He is very meticulous in communicating all of the information that is necessary to make an informed and calculated decision going for solar panels.

Zack M has been a persistent, and professional provider of every detail (and then some) I have asked for during this process. He has answered all my technical questions on the panels and installation specifics, and also my wife's questions about financinig, asthetics, and warranties. He has been patient with mine and my wife's schedule to schedule phone calls and Zoom meetings, even with re-schedule requests. He would be the first person I turn to at SME and I hope is representative of the quality person SME employs. I hope to be a customer of SME as soon as I can work out the financing on my end.

My overall experience was very satisfied. They were very helpful with choosing a system that was within my budget yet satisfied my power demand. The whole process was extremely smooth and easy. I was able to do it all from my phone. They do all the work for you from filing the right permits to figuring out if you have any trees to trim for best lighting. The instillation crew I cant say enough good things about them. They were extremely polite, very knowledgeable, great workmanship, extremely fast.

Process was very smooth, communication was on point. Product works as advertised and it is good value for money at that time. Solar is like buying a HDTV, wait a year and prices are cheaper so nothing they can do but it was great value for money then. I wish they had given be a drone video of the installed product because I have no idea how it looks like on the roof.
