Summit Energy understands that solar installation can be expensive — the average solar system installation in the United States costs $15,000 to $25,000. To combat high upfront costs, Summit Energy offers a No Cost Solar Program. The program is a power purchase agreement (PPA) that eliminates upfront costs on your solar panel installation.
With a Summit Energy PPA plan you’re responsible only for the cost of the energy produced by the panels, which will typically be at a much lower rate than what you’re currently paying for electricity.
Summit Energy offers protection for your solar investment through the SolarInsure Advantage Warranty program. This program features the following:
There are not many solar installation companies that offer this same level of protection or the option to extend coverage. Generally, equipment warranties are provided only by the solar equipment manufacturer, so it is unique that Summit Energy offers protection beyond what the manufacturer provides.
Solar warranties are typically 25 years in length and cover the cost to repair or replace faulty equipment, and the solar installation company itself will then offer workmanship warranties that protect against installation issues. The average warranty within the industry is 10 years. Thus, Summit Energy stands out by offering 30-year warranty coverage, far surpassing the industry average of 10 years and even the common 25 years included with many solar installations.
Summit Energy offers the following solar panel installation options:
In most cases, a roof solar panel installation is the best option for residential properties, but if you’d like to explore other options, you can speak with a Summit Energy representative.

Solar has typically been viewed as a geographically limited service, meaning a vast majority of companies either provide services in one state or a select few identified cities. Solar companies that do expand into other states typically do so through a dealership program or grow business gradually in hopes of development across state lines. Summit Energy has taken its expansion seriously, not wasting any time to ensure that it can help as many prospective solar clients as possible.
