The Good

  • Solar Project Types
  • Battery Backup Solutions
  • Free Energy Assessment

Solar Project Types

Within the solar industry, it is relatively standard for solar installation companies to offer residential and commercial solutions. These types of projects have become somewhat “expected” of providers in the solar space. StarAlt Solar has taken its project offerings a step further, offering utility-scale solutions.

Whether it is a full-blown solar farm or a massive project requiring ground-mount installation, StarAlt Solar can help. The company has been a part of these large scale solar panel farms and currently have utility partnerships that allow for maximized solar power generation. It is a great option for land owners looking for passive forms of income. 

Battery Backup Solutions

Most solar installation companies offer traditional installation of solar panels and inverters; however, battery and storage solutions are becoming increasingly popular due to the uninterrupted service these solutions provide in conjunction with maximizing a solar system’s capabilities.

Despite the rise in popularity for battery and storage solutions, not all solar installation companies are offering these types of services. StarAlt Solar does offer battery solutions and is certified to install HomeGrid battery and storage solutions for residential and commercial property owners. 

Free Energy Assessment

Before making any commitments, StarAlt Solar will do an initial consultation free of charge. In this energy assessment, the professionals at StarAlt Solar will first determine whether or not solar is a good option for the client. Not every property is built for solar and not everyone needs it if utility prices are not constantly increasing.

StarAlt Solar will first identify if the prospective client would benefit from solar at all. This is rare in an industry built around aggressive sales tactics. If it is determined that the property is ideal for a solar project, StarAlt Solar will provide projected energy savings data and a detailed breakdown of equipment and energy needs.

The Bad

  • Service Area
  • Undisclosed Equipment Information
  • Equipment/Workmanship Warranties

Service Area

Solar is generally a local service. Most solar companies will service one state or a select few cities within a state. StarAlt Solar is no different. Currently, StarAlt Solar offers services in specific cities within two different states including:

  • McAllen, Texas
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Indianapolis, Indiana

While many solar companies are geographically restricted, some are expanding into multiple states or regions across the country. At this time, StarAlt Solar is not one of these companies. 

Undisclosed Equipment Information 

Equipment partnerships are relatively common in the solar industry. Solar installation companies will pair up with tier-1 manufacturers or become authorized dealers of certain types of equipment. Solar installation companies typically disclose this type of information so prospective solar clients can determine if the equipment is what they are looking for.

However, StarAlt Solar has not disclosed what type of panels or inverters are used during installation. This limits a client's ability to make an educated and well-researched decision. 

Equipment/Workmanship Warranties

Warranties are an industry standard within the solar space. Since solar is a financial investment, regardless of project type, warranties are a necessary form of protection for the client. There are industry standards and averages when it comes to warranty types and coverages.

For instance, equipment warranties are generally offered through the manufacturer and cover the actual parts. If a part malfunctions, this warranty will help replace or repair the part for little to no cost. These types of warranties are usually 25 years in length. Then through the solar installation company, a workmanship warranty is typically offered. This warranty protects clients from any issues stemming from installation work. The industry average for workmanship warranties hovers around 10 years.

Despite being relatively common in the solar space, StarAlt Solar does not offer equipment or workmanship warranties.

The Bottom Line

StarAlt Solar has been involved in a number of successful solar projects. The team’s expertise in a number of project types has allowed StarAlt Solar to be a part of residential, commercial, and utility-scale type projects. In addition to offering solar system installation, StarAlt Solar installs battery and storage solutions for clients looking to maximize the production of solar energy. All interested clients can reach out to StarAlt Solar for a free energy assessment where a design, savings, and energy needs are reported. 

There are limitations to the StarAlt Solar service that prospective clients should be aware of. For starters, StarAlt Solar only offers installation services in select areas of Texas and Indianapolis, Indiana. Outside of these areas, prospective solar customers will have to look elsewhere for solar assistance.

It is also important to note that StarAlt Solar has not disclosed equipment information, forgoing publicly sharing solar panel and inverter brands. There are also no warranties available directly through StarAlt Solar. 

Considering all aspects of the StarAlt Solar operation, prospective solar clients should take advantage of the free consultation to find out if StarAlt Solar is up to the task. During this consultation, clients can have questions and concerns answered and addressed prior to making a final decision.

StarAlt Solar been has diligent and precise with their information. They did what they said they would do and kept me in the loop all along the way. I highly recommend and will use them in any future solar needed. Their staff and crews were very detail conscious and showed great follow though.
