Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Online Monitoring
  • Excellent Warranty
  • In-House Team

Online Monitoring

SolarMax Technology customers have access to an Enphase monitoring system called MyEnlighten. MyEnlighten provides users with verification of overall system health and performance at a glance. MyEnlighten also displays energy production by month, day, or hour and allows consumers to analyze performance against historical weather data.

Excellent Warranty

SolarMax Technology manufactures its own solar panels in California and stands by its product by offering a comprehensive warranty package. Every SolarMax solar package includes a 25-year workmanship warranty, a 25-year manufacturer's warranty on the inverter, and a 25-year manufacturer's warranty on the panels. The fact that SolarMax Technology provides all three of these warranties gives customers peace of mind that they will be fully covered in the event of an accident or malfunction.

In-House Team

SolarMax does not outsource any portion of its installations to third parties. The company's in-house consultants will sell you the panels and communicate with you throughout the entire process. The in-house designers and engineers will create a system that's customized specifically for your needs. Finally, SolarMax's in-house installation team will put the panels on your roof and get the system all ready to go.


The Bad

  • Limited Availability

Limited Availability

SolarMax Technology Inc. provides its solar installation services exclusively to residents of Southern California. Potential customers located outside of this area will have to find a different company to take care of their solar needs.


The Bottom Line

SolarMax Technology has eight years of experience in the solar industry. The company has an in-house installation team and offers excellent warranties and online monitoring.

Otto Kubik Rancho Cucamonga, CA

We have been operating since November 2015 and other than some startup issues due to our technology being the absolute most up to date, the process has been excellent. We are realtors, and have seen a LOT of solar installs, some with PPA's that are simply butt ugly for the consumers. By accident, we selected these folks, and frankly, got very lucky. Their price was clearly the lowest. Their installation was superior to most. Their responses to the start up "hiccups" in retrospect wasn't bad at all. As I said, we have seem MANY competitors proposals and actual installs, and their contract language. We are unbelievably happy with the entire package and wished we had done this earlier. Fortunately, we didn't and have the very best array offered, and its still the gold standard hardware. We would strongly recommend them for an outright purchase. DO NOT consider a PPA, these are a disaster waiting to happen, and far too many of the PPA companies are BKing to avoid their long term commitments.

We wanted to purchase our solar panels , so Solarmax made the most sense . They were reasonably priced ... provided on line monitoring, great warranty , current technology and great follow up customer service . Very happy with my purchase and the $0 billing on my electric bill : )
