**Solplicity appears to no longer be in business. The information in this review may now be inaccurate or out of date. We recommend researching other top solar companies in your area.**

Solplicity has been in business since 2012 and has partnered with Verengo Solar to bring flexibility with installers and ensure that customers are receiving quality installations. You will notice in our Solplicity review that the company does not use cookie-cutter solar solutions; rather, Solplicity assesses each home and creates a custom system that will fit the customer's specific energy needs.

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Payment Options
  • Customized Solutions

Variety of Payment Options

According to Solplicity's website, the company offers five different payment options, which is more than what the typical solar company offers. With such a variety of payment options, Solplicity is able to provide a customized solution to best fit each customer's needs and budget. Every Solplicity plan includes monitoring. Solplicity's "Pay As You Go" and "Steady As You Go" options, which are leases and PPAs, allow you to go solar for $0 down and cover maintenance for the life of the contract. The five different payment plans, according to Solplicity:
  • Pay As You Go - with this plan you will enjoy lower monthly electric payments, no upfront costs, low yearly increases and monitoring and maintenance are included
  • Steady As You Go - with this plan you will enjoy no upfront costs and level pay increases, as well as having the monitoring and maintenance included
  • Minimize Me - with this plan you will pay a modest down payment that will provide you with the lowest possible monthly payment for a generation and it includes the monitoring and maintenance of your system as well
  • Upfront - with this plan, you pay for your system up front and it includes monitoring and maintenance as well
  • Ownership - with this plan you own your solar system from the beginning and will start saving immediately and for years to come

Customized Solutions

Solplicity understands that solar is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Prior to installation, Solplicity will survey your home and design a custom solar system to maximize both available roof space and savings.

The Bad

  • Availability
  • Limited Online Information
  • No Mobile App

Limited Availability

Solplicity is only available in California. If you live elsewhere, you'll be unable to go solar with Solplicity and will need to check out other solar providers.

Lack of Information on Website

While Solplicity offers plenty of information on the different kinds of payment options it has available, that is about all that can be found on the company's website. There is an overall lack of information and transparency on other important items. For example, it is unclear what Solplicity's warranties are and what they cover. In addition, there is no mention of the type of equipment that is used. It would be convenient to have this information readily available before having to call in.

No Mobile App

Solplicity doesn't have a mobile app that customers can use to check the production and performance of their system. While it's not a necessary feature, it's nice for customers to have the opportunity to ensure that their system is not underproducing from anywhere in the world.


The Bottom Line

Although Solplicity offers customized solar solutions and a variety of payment options, the company is pretty limited in the number of customers that it can serve because it only operates in California. Additionally, there is a lot of information that the company has not disclosed, so we have a difficult time recommending Solplicity at this time.

Gordon Murdoch Rocklin, CA

We have had our panels for close to a year I guess. Not real happy with the company. They told 13 panels which ended up to be nine. Not a great saving. They blamed it on the city inspector. (Rocklin, Ca). Yet I drive around the neighborhood and see houses of similar size with definetly more panels. Communication is terrible. They haven't even had the courstesy to call and ask how things were going and were we happy with their product. Our saving is pretty minute and that's fine. Would I recommend them? I don't think so. I will say their salesperson Carl was fine, and the installation company did a good job as far as it goes.

Donald F. DeLany Laguna Beach, CA

Although they seemed honest and upfront, they did not disclose that there would be a Solar Lien placed on the home. We only found this out when we were applying for a home equity line of credit and were told that there was a lien that put them ahead of the HELOC. To get this changed, we had to pay $125 to get it removed and then it would get put back on. If we go to sell our home and the buyers do not want to inherit the system, we are stuck and can't sell to that buyer. We were told that the contract would transfer to the new homeowners or if they did not want it, we could take it with us. NOT TRUE! Now we are having to pay a fee to remove this lien that we never were told about and have to hope any buyer wants solar. On top of that, the payments were not explained correctly to us. I am not saying they lied, but not divulging the information correctly is the same in my eyes.

I would not recomend this company to anyone. When sold to us it was told that we would pay 1.5 per kilowatt for the next twenty years it would never go up. This was explained to us not once but five times reps from the company came to are house. It was never explained that we would be paying for the KWH produced be our system quite the opposite they told on five different meeting that we would only pay for what we used. Don't fall far this scam

I am sending this message in order to prevent you from making the same mistake. This company lures you into signing a contract that rips you off. I ended have to pay twice more than if not having the system. I have to pay 33 cents per kWh generated by the solar panels regardless if I have used them or not. The extra kWh that I don't use will go to PGE. PGE will sell that energy to somewhere and pay me back only 2.7 cents per kWh. These details are not on the contract. It is a scam , accomplice with giant energy company PGE
