The Good

  • Solar Panel Installation and Services
  • Additional Energy Services
  • Variety of Financing Options
  • Adequate Credentials

Solar and Additional Services

SolarGoingUp offers all of the basic services you would look for in a solar company, including residential installation, commercial installation, solar electric repair, home batteries, and off-grid battery installation.

Aside from these typical services, SolarGoingUp can also do solar thermal work, roofing repair, LED light installation, solar cleaning, and electric vehicle consulting. 

Additional Energy Services

Aside from typical solar services, SolarGoingUp can also do solar thermal work, roofing repair, LED light installation, solar cleaning, and electric vehicle consulting. 

Variety of Financing Options

Unlike other companies in the industry, SolarGoingUp has all types of financing options. Customers can choose between a loan, a lease, a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) or an outright purchase. This gives customers more options and allows them to tailor the terms of the plan specifically to their financial situation. 

Adequate Credentials

When it comes to credentials, SolarGoingUp is well covered. On its website, the company freely displays its contracting license number so that customers can verify that the license is active. The company is also accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and received an A+ rating on bbb.org.

The only credential that is missing from the SolarGoingUp website is an NABCEP certification. This certification is not always required in the solar industry, but it does ensure that solar businesses are equipped with the most up-to-date knowledge and skill. Whether SolarGoingUp has any employees that are NABCEP certified is unknown.

The Bad

  • Limited Online Reviews
  • Lack of Product Information

Limited Online Reviews

SolarGoingUp has a very limited number of reviews online. The company website features only five reviews. Currently, there are fewer than 10 reviews about the company on Yelp or Google Reviews. This is likely because the company has only been in business for three years, but does not give potential customers a great idea of previous customer satisfaction. 

Lack of Product Information

When it comes to information about brands of panels, inverters, batteries, or any other products it installs, SolarGoingUp does not provide much information on its website. It is unknown if SolarGoingUp manufactures its own panels, is affiliated with a single manufacturer, or distributes a variety of solar panel brands. 

Since little is known about the products that SolarGoingUp provides, warranties on its equipment are undisclosed. The website does not mention a workmanship warranty either. Thus, it is very difficult to compare SolarGoingUp with its industry competitors.

The Bottom Line

We recommend that customers interested in working with SolarGoingUp inquire about the company’s products and warranties. With all solar purchases, customers should receive quotes from a few different companies in the area and compare them.

SolarGoingUp’s strongest point is its variety of financing options. In order to find out if SolarGoingUp is the best solar provider for your property, you should consult with a SolarGoingUp representative and receive an estimate.

Communication was terrible. Installation too longer than communicated. Installation was incomplete. And my contact information was shared/mixed up with other costumers and I as getting calls from clients.

Merry Landis Workman Lake Elsinore, CA

Worst company for communication, warranty is questionable and quality of workmanship is an issue. No follow-up to address outstanding issues. We have a roof leak. Solar Going Up was put on notice 3/1. We paid to replace missing and broken roof tiles from installation, paid a remediation company to take care of the water damage. House is still tarped. Solar Going Up does not have a roofing license. Not sure who Connor S is employed by? CLSB has Connor's HIS License 132836SP under Complete Solar Inc. SCE application was returned several times with deficiencies finally approved on 4/20 and 4/21/23. Solar Going Up received payment in full on 1/24/23. Too many issues doing business with Solar Going Up this includes Libby and Mr. C.
