Solfinity was founded in 2022 with a new approach to solar sales and installation. Rather than conduct the entire solar process with an in-house team, Solfinity oversees the entire solar process for every client. Solfinity is equipped to handle both residential and commercial projects.
Based in Phoenix, Arizona, Solfinity has rapidly grown to cover the west, south, and even states along the eastern border of the country. With Solfinity, clients can expect to choose from a wide selection of solar panels, inverters, and batteries or storage solutions depending on the property’s specific needs.
The goal of each Solfinity design is to create a more integrated system where the equipment does not become the focal point of the home. Solfinity claims that with its designs and equipment, the system will be “60% less visible” when looking at the home.
Warranties play a big role in the solar industry. Because solar is a major financial investment for most property owners, warranties protect that investment and offer the peace of mind many potential clients are looking for. Most solar installation companies will offer two types of warranties: equipment and workmanship. The industry average equipment warranty is 25 years and usually covers repair or replacement work. The workmanship warranty is generally 10 years in length and covers any issues stemming from installation. Solfinity takes warranties to a whole new level offering four warranties and extending the industry average workmanship warranty. The Solfinity warranties include:
Solfinity blows most solar companies out of the water when it comes to warranties, including offering the roof penetration warranty which is not commonly provided by solar companies.
The Solfinity business model has allowed for one of the largest service areas in the industry. Since Solfinity oversees the entire solar process rather than being involved in every aspect of it, the company has been able to expand rapidly and continues to grow. To date, Solfinity offers solar services in the following states:
Solfinity has concrete plans to expand into even more states within the coming months and years. The company's website will have the most up to date information on state coverage. By providing one of the largest service areas in the country, Solfinity is able to service more potential clients than most geographically limited solar operations.
While it is unclear what specific financing options are available to Solfinity clients, the company does offer a payment plan to qualifying customers looking to utilize clean, renewable energy. For $49 per month and $0 down, Solfinity clients can have a system installed on their property. Obviously exclusions apply and there is no specific information about this form of financing, but it is an option to Solfinity clients.
Despite making multiple claims about providing a more “sleek” design and offering the “most efficient solar panels on the market” there is no concrete evidence of this. Solfinity has not disclosed what equipment partners, if any, the company has. It also is not an authorized dealer or installer of tier-1 equipment.
Most solar installation companies make the equipment information public for a number of reasons. Clients often make purchasing decisions based on what equipment they wish to see installed on their property. While Sofinity claims to be able to access the best of the best in terms of equipment, there is no way to back up these claims.
One of the reasons Solfinity has been able to expand so quickly, is the fact that the company does not handle the entire solar process with an in-house staff. Most solar installation companies do the sales and installation portions of the solar process. Solfinity focuses on the initial sale and then is merely oversees the design and installation process.
The company specifically claims to offer “customer care” services during the actual installation. What that entails exactly is unclear. Outsourcing the installation does not necessarily mean the installation will not be conducted in an efficient and satisfying manner.
The most experienced solar companies in the industry were founded in the late 90’s or early 2000’s. While there are a few solar companies even older than that, this period seems to be where more competition started to pop up around the country. Then federal and state tax incentives to help reduce the cost of solar were introduced. This is when the popularity of solar started to skyrocket.
Many solar installation companies started to then pop up in the early 2010’s and the growing market has not seemed to slow down. Solfinity is a product of the ever increasing rise in solar system installation. While the team has over 20 years of combined experience, the company itself was not founded until 2022. It is still unclear if the business structure of Solfinity is sustainable or not.
