The Good

  • Monitoring Packages
  • Payment Options
  • Solar Energy Storage
  • In-House Solar Installation
  • Moving Services
  • Additional Electrical Services

Monitoring Packages

Sun Valley Solar Solutions offers several system monitoring packages. With these packages, customers have the ability to track their system's production and performance online or with a mobile app to ensure that everything is operating at peak efficiency. Sun Valley Solar will keep an eye on each system as well. If someone from the company notices any signs of trouble, they will alert the system owner immediately and discuss the options.

Payment Options

Sun Valley Solar Solutions offers several ways to pay for a solar system, including outright purchase, loan, and lease. With an outright purchase, you'll put $1,000 down when you sign. Then, you'll pay for 80 percent of the system upon installation and the remainder of the cost once the system is turned on. The average return-on-investment time for a cash purchase is four to nine years. With a loan, you can finance part or all of a system. Sun Valley Solar loans come with 12 to 20-year terms.

Leasing requires decent credit, but is a great option if you would like to save money on your electricity bills each month without having to make a large investment. With a lease, you can have a solar system installed for $0 down. Maintenance and repairs fall on the company.

Solar Energy Storage

In addition to top-quality solar panels, Sun Valley Solar also installs solar battery options from Tesla (Powerwall) and Generac (PWRCell). Both options provide ample backup power to the home using the surplus renewable energy the solar power system produces. Solar energy storage maximizes the system's efficiency by making power available for emergency and night time use. Solar battery packs can also be used to charge electric vehicles.

In-House Solar Installation

Sun Valley Solar Solutions performs all aspects of solar system design and installation in-house, which means that the company does not use any subcontractors. Because Sun Valley Solar uses its own installation team, customers can expect quality work and consistent customer service.

Moving Services

In the event that a customer needs to move or replace their roof, Sun Valley Solar Solutions offers panel moving services. The company's trained technicians know how to safely remove and package solar components for safe storage and transport. When the customer is ready to re-install the system, Sun Valley Solar's technicians can put the panels back just as they were or create a fresh design for the new home.

Additional Electrical Services

On top of installing premier solar panel systems, Sun Valley Solar also offers a number of home electrical services:

  • Panel installation and upgrades
  • Outlet and light switch management
  • Troubleshooting, toning, and testing
  • Backup power systems
  • Service panels
  • EV charging stations
  • Lighting installation and repair
  • Circuit breaker installation, repair, and replacement

The Bad

  • No Power Purchase Agreement
  • Limited Availability
  • Not NABCEP Certified

No Power Purchase Agreement

Although Sun Valley Solar offers a wide range of financing options, the solar installer does not offer power purchase agreements (PPA) as a way to pay for solar energy. PPAs can be an effective way for a homeowner to finance solar power while also saving money on the electric bill

Limited Availability

Sun Valley Solar is only available to residents in Arizona. Arizona homeowners interested in working with a local company are encouraged to read verified Sun Valley Solar reviews first.

Not NABCEP Certified

Sun Valley Solar does not appear to be certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), which produces the top technician training programs in renewable energy.

The lack of certification should not disqualify Sun Valley Solar from consideration, however; the company has plenty of proven experience installing quality solar products. That said, the presence of an NABCEP certification can provide homeowners additional peace of mind in knowing their solar contractor has completed one of the most rigorous training programs in the United States.

The Bottom Line

Sun Valley Solar Solutions has been in business for a decade and operates in Arizona. The company offers several payment options, in-house installations, monitoring packages, and moving services. As an authorized SunPower dealer, the company offers some of the best solar panel modules and warranties in the industry.

That said, the company's services are only available in Arizona, and may lack the level of training of other NABCEP-certified providers. Homeowners are encouraged to obtain a free quote, read verified Sun Valley Solar reviews, and compare what they find with the top solar companies in their area.

Kim Miller Buckeye, AZ

When we moved to Arizona in 2016 I told my husband we needed Solar. He did a lot of research and found Sun Valley met exactly what he was looking for. Tom L was very professional and pleasant to work with. Several of our neighbors have since installed solar with Sun Valley Solar Solutions. Tom did the analysis and said he recommends 16 panels. I wanted 20. He said that would be overkill. He could have said sure and taken our money but he didn’t, he was honest and looking out for our best interest. Delivery was on time and they cleaned up after. My roof inspector was impressed SVS Solutions did not crack any tiles on my roof as most a lot of companies do inspector said and installers never say anything. The warranty was 25 years. I couldn’t give enough stars for him and SVS Solutions.

For the life of me I can't figure out why SVSS only got 5.1 from bestcompany. Looks like all user scores were a 10. Mine is no different. SVSS was terrific from beginning to end. I spent a lot of time looking at solar. Interviewed several companies, did a ton of research and lots of calculations on expected value & SVSS was the only company who made it worth the money. Their sales person was really patient and spent a lot of time w/ me going over the numbers. On the install, we had a manufacturer defect with the inverter, but SVSS was very responsive and replaced ours without question. I've had my system for nearly 3 years now and have always recommended Sun Valley Solar.

I purchased a 12 KW system from Sun Valley and from start to finish it was a great experience . The engineering and proposed output was modeled and the actual performance has been exactly in line with the model. The craftsmanship on the install was exceptional and I am a professional engineer/construction professional and very hard to please. I would have these folks do work for me at any time and recommend them highly.

I did my homework before selecting this company for my solar installation. That install day was three years ago and their hardware has proven to be superb. From the first salesman, through the design phase to the crew who installed the system, this company was completely professional and did the job. I like to take credit for a job well done but really I was just lucky finding this company when I did.

Although solar technology has been around for awhile - quality companies with integrity, experience and large scope of knowledge are hard to come by - until you meet with Sun Valley Solar! They work with APS and SRP - very professional yet friendly reps who work with what your long term goals are - not just to sell you on the largest system. They have a variety of programs and are just overall an absolute pleasure to deal with - Cole in particular is fantastic! Wouldnt recommend any other company!

My installing company was decimated by the Feds due to non payment. They colsed shop. Shortly after, my inverter failed. The inverter manufacture put me in contact with Sun Power. They stepped in and took care of the problem and replaced my inverter promptly. I found them to be easy to work with, knowledgeable, and open with information sharing. They check with me every so often. I will highly recommend them for your install or service.
