SolarSesame is a California solar company dedicated to helping others achieve affordable and clean energy. The company provides consumers with a realistic installation timeline, real quotes from previous customers, and a dedicated customer service team that will keep you informed throughout the entire process.
SolarSesame’s website has several calculators easily accessible to all consumers. One calculator can give you an estimate of how much you’ll pay for your entire solar system.
Other calculators show you how much your monthly payment will be, how much a solar system will increase your home’s value, and how long your payback period is.
These are all just estimates, but they can be a great starting point if you’re simply curious about how solar will benefit you.
SolarSesame provides consumers with an estimated installation timeline. As with all companies the timeline could change due to the size or scope of your project, but most customers can expect the entire process to only take a few weeks — most of that time will be spent waiting for permits to be issued. The actual day of installation, Solar Sesame estimates that getting the panels up and running will only take four to eight hours.
This timeline is straightforward and standard within the industry. However, we appreciate SolarSesame providing consumers with a realistic timeframe.
If you’re wondering if a solar system is really going to save you money, SolarSesame includes on its website actual quotes from customers. Here you can see how much the customer was paying on their electric bill before solar, their electric bill after switching to solar, the down payment, and the total monthly payment.
Homeowners who hired SolarSesame saved anywhere from $119 to $281 each month.
SolarSesame offers robust, 25-year warranties on all its systems. Warranties cover the following areas and components:
In the event that any system component does not perform up to manufacturer expectations, or the system does not produce the amount of power projected by the company, SolarSesame will work to make things right.
SolarSesame installs equipment from leading manufacturers in the solar industry, including solar panels from Q CELLS, inverters and solar batteries from Enphase, as well as the Tesla Powerwall, one of hte leading backup battery options available. Along with SolarSesame's elite group of installation partners (SunPower, Palmetto, Sunrun, and others), the solar company's expert Energy Consultants are available to assist homeowners at every step of the solar installation process.
As of October 2022, SolarSesame has received fewer than five verified customer reviews on Best Company — though the company has earned more than 10 reviews (most of them 5-star reviews) on Google. Prospective clients rely on online reviews to make an informed decision. If you have worked with SolarSesame in the past, or are a current customer, we recommend leaving a review below.
SolarSesame’s website is a great place to start, as you can find several guides and articles that will help explain solar on a general level.
Additionally, the company is transparent with its installation timeline and even includes previous customer quotes. SolarSesame also provides customers with a dedicated customer service team that is your point of contact throughout the process, so if you have any questions or concerns you can always reach out to them.
The company is missing a few details that could be helpful to consumers when comparing solar companies. It would be nice if there was a bit more transparency regarding the panel brands, inverters, and other preferred equipment. We’d also like to see more information concerning the staff and whether they are NABCEP-certified or what kind of training they have.
Overall, we expect consumers to have a positive experience working with SolarSesame.
SolarSesame was formed because we became frustrated seeing homeowners worry about rising electricity bills. When we realized that we could save homeowners hundreds on their monthly bills and contribute to a cleaner and greener environment, we jumped in headfirst.
Prior to SolarSesame, our team spent years helping homeowners lock in their mortgages to low fixed rates, savings them thousands of dollars along the way. We took these learnings and our months of researching the solar industry and molded SolarSesame into the company it is today – a consumer-centric platform that makes going solar a painless, cost-saving, and gratifying process.
