Solar systems are an investment. To protect this investment and provide a level of peace of mind for each client, solar installation companies will offer warranties. Generally, the equipment warranty will be provided by the manufacturer of the equipment itself. These warranties are generally 25 years in length and cover the cost to repair or replace faulty equipment. The solar installation companies themselves will then offer workmanship warranties that protect against installation issues. The industry average for these warranties sit around 10 years. Summit Energy goes above and beyond offering extended warranty options through SolarInsure. With this warranty, clients will receive:
There are not many solar installation companies that come close to offering this level of warranty, let alone providing clients the option to extend its coverage but Summit Energy does.
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. Currently, Summit Energy offers solar installation in the following states:
By offering services in eight different states, Summit Energy is able to help more interested solar clients than the average solar installation operation.
Many solar installation companies will become a certified dealer or installer of one solar manufacturer’s equipment. Others will have partnerships with a few different solar equipment producers, in hopes of providing a cost effective system to each client. Summit Energy ensures that clients will receive a customized system at the best rate with its solar energy equipment partnerships.
To date Summit Energy has partnered with the following companies and brands:
Having this many equipment partnerships should go a long way with prospective customers. Designs will be completely catered to the property and competitive rates will be offered in nearly every instance.
Having a solar system installed is an investment. The average solar system in the United States costs $15,000-$25,000 to have installed. While tax incentives can help with these costs, the entire figure will not be covered. To combat the steep prices, most solar installation companies will offer at least one financing option to its clients. Summit Energy offers its clients three different financing solutions including:
By offering a number of financing solutions, Summit Energy ensures clients are likely to find a plan that suits their financial needs and constraints.
Between 2010–2020, an influx of solar installation companies flooded the industry. The emergence of the federal and state tax incentives as well as other financing programs pushing solar efforts resulted in an influx of property owners inquiring about solar energy.
Companies founded before the rise in solar popularity have more experience and have a better base to draw from in terms of efficiency of installed solar systems over a period of time. Unfortunately, Summit Energy is not one of these more established solar companies, having only been founded in 2016. It should be noted, however, that the leadership at Summit Energy have been involved in the industry prior to the company’s inception.
Not every property is made to support a solar system. Whether it is a high pitched roof, an awkward layout, or limited accessibililty to adequate sunlight, installing solar on a rooftop may not work out for a number of reasons. To combat this issue, some solar installation companies are offering ground mount solutions in the event that a traditional roof-top system will not work.
However, Summit Energy does not offer ground mount solutions at this time and focuses solely on roof installs on residential and commercial properties.
