There may not be a better place to put solar panels on your roof than in the state of Arizona. That's why Sundrop Solar opened its doors there in 2014, and has since expanded to service California and New Mexico. Though the company is still young, the reviews for Sundrop are very positive and customers seem to like its products and services. Sundrop Solar offers standard installation of panels and inverters.

The Good

  • Payment Options
  • Positive Customer Reviews

Payment Options

Sundrop Solar offers its customers payment options that result in solar ownership for the homeowner, including outright purchases and loans. This means that customers have the ability to choose a payment option that best fits their needs and interests. For example, a customer who has cash on hand and would like to see high financial returns might be interested in an outright purchase. A customer who would like to own their panels and take advantage of federal and state incentives without paying out of pocket may want to look into financing with a loan.

Positive Customer Reviews

Sundrop Solar relies heavily on its customer base. The company thrives on good reviews and likes to make sure that all of its customers are satisfied. This is reflected on Sundrop's website. Reviews from clients stating how much they enjoyed their experience are plastered on every page. This is also showcased on the company's Facebook and Twitter pages, which is pretty solid considering the fact that it's only been around for two years.

The Bad

  • System Monitoring Not Available to Customers
  • Lack of Information on Website

System Monitoring Not Available to Customers

Sundrop Solar doesn't have a system monitoring program in place for its customers to use; however, the company has stated that it does monitor each system on its end. While it's helpful that Sundrop will monitor your system for you, the fact that you can't get on and check your system's performance on your own can be frustrating for some customers. For example, if something has gone wrong and your system is underproducing, you most likely won't know it until one of Sundrop's technicians has caught the issue and alerted you.

Lack of Information on Website

Sundrop Solar's website could use some work. While it's aesthetically pleasing, it doesn't offer much helpful information. For example, if you'd like to learn more about Sundrop's solar services, installations, payment options, or warranties, you will have to either request a quote, call the company, or visit the office in Tempe. This can be inconvenient for customers who would like to find out more without having to take the time to reach out to the company.

The Bottom Line

Sundrop Solar may be somewhat new to the solar game, but several positive customer reviews lead us to believe that the company has started out strong. While Sundrop does not offer system monitoring, it does offer a couple of different payment options for customers to choose from. If you live in Arizona, California, or New Mexico, you might want to consider Sundrop Solar. However, if you live in a different state, you'll have to check out other solar companies.

I met Sundrop Solar while at the home and garden show. They had a gentleman come to my home and explain to me how solar works and the benefits. Being retired and on a fixed income cost was a concern . I do believe in the environmental benefits as well. I liked the idea of saving some money which was why I decided to have solar installed. The start of everything seemed to move very quickly than it felt like there was a little break. I was told they were waiting on approvals. It took about 3 months to finish the job and it m glad I did it. I’m savage by about $50 month and even received a check from Sundrop Solar when my friend went solar. Bedsides a few times i tried to call and didn’t hear back until the next day , I’m happy with my decision and happy with Sundrop Solar.

We started looking into solar when we moved to Arizona last year. After speaking with a few companies we were comfortable with moving forward with Sundrop Solar. The gentleman who came to our home explained all the benefits and savings in complete detail and easy for my wife and I to understand. It took about 2 1/2 months to complete the job and get our system turned on. The entire process was very easy and at turn on, their install manager was here along with the electric company and once it was on, our electric meter was actually spinning backwards. My wife and I are happy with Sundrop Solar and would recommend others to give them a call.
