SunGrid Solar is a premium solar panel and backup battery storage installer that has been serving Southern California residents and business owners since 2017. With more than 1,300 solar panel systems installed, the company offers top industry warranties on both the equipment as well as the workmanship of its technicians.
SunGrid Solar is one of the few solar installation companies that offers all four types of payment options. While each option certainly comes with its disadvantages and tradeoffs, offering all four shows a versatility and breadth that most solar renewable energy companies do not share:
Regardless of the selected payment option, SunGrid Solar provides a free initial consultation on every solar project. The company will then engineer a custom design and pull relevant city and HOA permits to ensure the solar energy systems are up to code and up to customer satisfaction.
Once the design has been approved, the company’s state-licensed technicians will install the solar power cells typically within one to two days. Following installation, the last step is to activate the system on the grid. The entire process can take as little as five days.
SunGrid Solar offers four high-efficiency solar panel modules to residential and commercial customers alike:
|Solar Module||Efficiency||Cost per Watt|
|LG NeON® 2 LG355N1C-V5||19.6 percent*||$2.93*|
|Panasonic N335 HIT||20 percent*||$3.14*|
|Hanwha Q CELLS Q.Peak DUO BLK G6+340||19 percent*||$2.64*|
|CANADIAN SOLAR HiDM CS1H-345MS||20.5 percent**||Unknown|
*Data per EnergySage
**Data per Canadian Solar
Each of the company’s solar panel modules fall well within the mid- to upper-efficiency level and are competitively priced. In addition to quality solar panels, SunGrid Solar also installs a premium solar inverter from SolarEdge. SolarEdge micro inverters regulate and translate the power from your solar panels into electricity for your home, and rank among the most efficient on the market.

Like many solar installation providers, SunGrid Solar installs panels exclusively in the state of California. While this practice is fairly common in the solar industry, it also makes for a crowded and competitive marketplace. Outside of expanding its service areas to other states, SunGrid Solar can separate itself from competitors through verified reviews from actual customers.
SunGrid Solar does not appear to possess any certifications or industry recognition from top solar organizations such as the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners or the Solar Energy Industries Association. These certifications not only set companies and their employees apart from other industry players, but also provide additional assurance and peace of mind to customers that they’re working with a company that adheres to high industry standards and best practices.
