LAST UPDATED: April 18th, 2023

Originally, Precis Solar was founded as B&P Solar, a company providing solar installation services in the greater San Diego area. Then in 1988, the company transitioned to Precis Development Inc., still providing solar services but expanding its operations working with solar, wind, and water energy systems. In 2009, Precis Solar teamed up with SunPower to offer direct manufactured equipment to its clients, becoming formally known as SunPower by Precis. The leadership at SunPower by Precis has been in the industry for over 20 years, providing ever evolving energy savings solutions. 

The professional technicians with SunPower by Precis are trained to offer solar sales, design, and installation services at a high level. Performance standards must be met in order to work for SunPower by Precis. In fact, the company earned Master Dealer status within the SunPower umbrella due to its relentless pursuit of high quality service. The SunPower by Precis team is well-equipped to handle residential, commercial, and even utility scale energy projects. 

In addition to offering traditional solar system installation services, SunPower by Precis also installs battery storage solutions that rival the best technology in the industry. The SunPower by Precis team utilizes a turnkey process and will also handle all permits and rebates that clients can potentially qualify for. 

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Solar Solutions Offered
  • Custom Roofing Designs
  • Solar Technology
  • Financing Options

Solar Solutions Offered

SunPower by Precis goes above and beyond providing a number of solar and energy savings solutions to its clients. Most solar installation companies are solely focused on solar sales and subsequent installation to offer anything else. SunPower by Precis sets itself apart from the industry by offering the following:

  • Hybrid solar solutions
  • Roof solar panels
  • Off grid systems
  • Ground solar panels
  • Solar heating systems
  • Solar pool heating
  • Backup generators and solutions

Clients that utilize SunPower by Precis can expect to receive a number of alternatives to save when it comes to their energy bill. 

Custom Roofing Designs

Some solar installation companies have to pass on solar projects simply because the client’s roof is not ideal for design or equipment placement. This is not a problem for SunPower by Precis customers, as the technology is built to produce energy even in sub-par conditions and the technicians and engineers know how to specifically cater to varying roofing types.

SunPower by Precis has successfully installed systems on the following roofs:

  • Pitched roofs
  • Flat roofs
  • Canopy roofs
  • Clay roofs
  • Asphalt roofs
  • Slate roofs 
  • Metal roofs

Clients concerned about the make or structure of their roof limiting solar efficiency should consider SunPower by Precis as the company is able to create custom solutions for a wide range of roofs. 

Solar Technology

The technology that SunPower by Precis offers its clients is one of the leading competitors within the entire solar industry. Panels are made of the Maxeon solar cell which utilizes a copper foundation providing unparalleled reliability and efficiency. This make of solar cells is not replicated with other technologies or manufacturers. The proprietary SunPower technology offers clients:

  • Unmatched strength with the copper foundation
  • Pure silicon to provide optimal power conversion
  • Light-trapping surfaces to capture more power
  • Anti-reflective coating which allows for increased energy production and aesthetically pleasing design
  • Sleek black make and profile with no visible grid lines

Clients that use SunPower by Precis can rest assured that the entire system down to its foundation is completely crafted and curated directly by the partnered manufacturer in SunPower. 

Financing Options

Having a solar system installed is expensive. On average, solar system equipment and subsequent installation work will cost the residential property owner anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 from start to finish. This is not financially doable for many looking to reduce energy costs and carbon footprint impact. As a result, SunPower by Precis offers the following financing options to clients:

  • Solar lease
  • Solar loan
  • Cash purchase
  • Power purchase agreement

While other solar installation companies may offer one or two of these financing avenues, SunPower by Precis essentially offers every type of financing to its clients providing maximum flexibility in this area. 


The Bad

  • No NABCEP Certification
  • Service Area

No NABCEP Certification

As master dealers of the SunPower product, it is no surprise that the technicians with SunPower by Precis are certified and authorized to install SunPower technology. However, this certification is extremely specific and limited to SunPower systems and equipment. Other solar installation companies hire NABCEP-certified installers to lead projects.

The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is widely recognized as the gold standard certifications industry within the renewable energy space. While it is not required that solar installers maintain NABCEP certification, it goes a long way in displaying a level of skill and knowledge. There are no NABCEP certified individuals on the SunPower by Precis staff. 

Service Area

Since SunPower by Precis is a solar dealer, that does mean a limited geographical area can be served. Installation companies that do not operate as a solar dealer do not have these geographical limitations and have options to expand services in an effort to help more clients access renewable energy. The SunPower by Precis team will only be able to service clients in the following cities in Southern California:

  • Riverside
  • Temecula
  • Moreno Valley

Outside of these cities, SunPower by Precis will have to pass on the solar project as it is restricted to these specific areas. 


The Bottom Line

The SunPower by Precis team offers comprehensive energy and solar solutions to residential, commercial, and utility-grade clients throughout Southern California. In addition to offering traditional solar system installation services, SunPower by Precis is also capable of providing off-grid, solar pool heating, alternative mounting, and backup solutions.

The team at SunPower by Precis is also capable of installing a solar system on a wide range of roof structures and makes. The technology that SunPower by Precis installs is entirely manufactured by one company, something no other tier-1 provider can offer. There are also a number of avenues potential clients can use to finance their solar project. 

While there are a number of reasons an interested solar customer would want to utilize SunPower by Precis for installation services, there are some limitations to be aware of prior to making a final decision. As a solar dealer, SunPower by Precis only takes on projects in certain cities within the Southern California area. Outside of this geographical service area, SunPower by Precis would not be able to take on the project.

While the technicians are SunPower certified, meaning they are knowledgeable and well-versed in installing SunPower technology, they are not NABCEP certified. 

For those looking for tailored solutions to roof design and installation of the latest solar technology on the market, SunPower by Precis is an ideal candidate for the project. The company is well-versed in offering customized solutions utilizing SunPower technology and equipment.
