Founded in 2018 and headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, SolarX Solutions is a residential solar panel installer with the mission of providing affordable, clean energy to homeowners across five states. With locations in California, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, and Utah, the company has established a wide-reaching client base built on high customer satisfaction levels.
Although the total number of SolarX Solutions’ reviews is small, the reviews show a pattern of happy customers across nearly every state the company is represented in.
SolarX Solutions has partnered with some of the most well-regarded names in solar product manufacturing to deliver solar panel systems that are both efficient and affordable. This includes solar modules from leading providers like Panasonic, Q Cells, and LG — all of which rank among the top five manufacturers for energy-efficient solar panels and industry-leading product warranties.
Consequently, all SolarX Solutions solar energy systems come with a 25-year equipment warranty, meaning the system’s physical components are covered against defects or other flaws for the essential lifetime of the system.
As for solar inverters, SolarX Solutions primarily uses products from Enphase and SolarEdge, both considered to be the best in solar inverter technology. These products also come with a 20- to 25-year extended warranty.
SolarX Solutions is a full-service solar installer, meaning the company is the direct point of contact for the homeowner at every step of the solar installation process, which the company describes as follows:
SolarX Solutions guarantees that once the proper permits have been secured, your solar power system will be on your roof within 30 days — and will be generating power within 60 days. This type of guarantee is unique in the industry and demonstrates the company’s commitment to a fast installation and activation window.
While the equipment warranty is useful for system components that are defective and need service or replacement, the workmanship warranty, which is usually provided by the installing company, covers any unforeseen damage caused to the system or home during the installation process or on maintenance visits.
SolarX Solutions has not as yet disclosed the terms of its workmanship warranty. Most companies warranty their work for five to ten years, with leading companies guaranteeing their workmanship for 25 years or more.
In most cases, homeowners have the option to purchase their solar panel systems directly from the installing company; however, some companies offer alternative financing paths for homeowners who may lack the necessary capital to make the purchase upfront.
Financing options like solar loans, power purchase agreements, and solar leases all have their own inherent advantages and drawbacks and can be catered to almost any budget. As yet, SolarX Solutions has not disclosed whether it provides any of these financing alternatives.
One way to distinguish good solar companies from great ones is by their industry certifications. Companies that employ technicians certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) demonstrate their commitment to excellence not just on the job site, but throughout the solar adoption experience.
The lack of NABCEP certification is no indictment against any given solar company; however, its presence can be a factor for homeowners considering multiple companies. SolarX Solutions’ status with the NABCEP is currently unclear.
