  • Zero Down Financing

  • REC Solar — REC Solar’s panels are widely considered to be on par with industry leaders like SunPower and LG in terms of energy efficiency, durability, and price. REC Solar panels come with a 25-year warranty.
  • Enphase — TriSMART Solar is an Enphase Premium Installer, meaning the company is well versed in all of Enphase’s products, including microinverters, and demonstrates outstanding customer service.
  • Unirac — TriSMART is also a Platinum Certified Unirac installer, and maintains strict roof mounting installation standards that are unmatched in the solar industry.
  • Generac — TriSMART Solar also installs backup battery and generator solutions from Generac, one of the leaders in solar energy storage solutions.

The Bad

  • Mostly Available in Texas
  • Not NABCEP Certified
  • Solar Workmanship Warranty

Mostly Available in Texas

In addition to Phoenix, Arizona and Salt Lake City, Utah, TriSMART Solar is only available in the following Texas cities:

  • Austin
  • Amarillo
  • Dallas
  • El Paso
  • Dallas–Fort Worth
  • Houston
  • Lubbock
  • San Antonio
  • Midland

Consumers located elsewhere in the United States will need to find a different solar company. 

Not NABCEP Certified

Though the solar provider has achieved numerous manufacturer-specific certifications, it does not appear to hold an industry certification from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).

The NABCEP is responsible for upholding high installation standards at the industry level, and produces some of the most rigorous solar technician training programs in the country. Companies with this certification identify themselves as true experts in solar.

Solar Workmanship Warranty

Despite 25-year equipment and production guarantees that come standard with every TriSMART Solar system, the company has yet to disclose what workmanship warranty is available for a solar panel system. The workmanship warranty covers damage caused by installer error, and leading companies provide this coverage for up to 25 years.

gavel

The Bottom Line

TriSMART Solar installs robust solar panel systems that are built to last and provides flexible financing options to help homeowners begin saving money from day one. If you live in Texas, Phoenix, or Salt Lake City, TriSMART Solar could be the right choice.

In order to know for sure, we encourage homeowners to read the latest TriSMART Solar reviews to see if the company lives up to its impressive resume, and to compare what they find with reviews for different local solar companies. And, as always, ask companies lots of questions as you comparison shop and read all fine print before signing a contract.

Christine Del Rio, TX

Installation of our solar panels went super quick and the company that installed came from San Antonio, just three hours away. They showed up early, they stayed until everything was done and they cleaned up and it was fantastic. We've had no problems and it's been easy and seamless. They have worked with us continually in getting all of the permits and all the approvals and they always kept us in the loop and it was amazing. Josh was amazing and he was very clear on how everything works. It just proved to be the right choice at the right time. Overall the company has been amazing, the workers are super up front and clear about any and all changes that have occurred and it's been super easy. We're consuming way more than what our solar panels are producing and I understand that changes seasonally but, it's definitely not the value that we were expecting.

I don't have any issues with them. They were the best fit for what I needed. I've had no issues with customer service, they've done everything I've asked. I think installation was all done in one day. Other than that they came back the next day to fix a couple things but it was smooth with no issues. Everything works properly and I've been able to check the status of the app and everything so I can kind of see how everything's going so it's very user friendly and transparent.

I don't have any problems with this company. As far as installation, all materials were delivered and they showed up and were done in a day. It was pretty fast, they cleaned up after themselves. It was done well. The product is pretty user friendly. The panels are still working good. I haven't had any issues at all. I think it is a little expensive.

My overall experience has been very positive. Every time I've had a problem they have responded. They came in and they did a thorough inspection before installing the panels. They installed them and did a very thorough job. And I've been very pleased with everything. Everybody was great. They were really great at taking good care of me and I'm very pleased with what they have provided for us. Value for your money is absolutely great.

The owners are great guys and I feel comfortable with their company. Anytime I need anything I'm able to get a hold of someone and that is really important to me. Installation was smooth. I mean there weren't any hang ups or issues at all. We were happy with it. I am happy with the equipment too. We work closely with Zack and with Mark and John and all three of those guys were awesome guys and so if we were ever to go solar again in another house we would certainly consider using trismart.

I like the equipment that they use and the price competitiveness. Very responsive and very attentive to questions and requests for changes that I had. They were just on top of things. During installation, I had a few requests of where I wanted the panels to go and they took care of that. They were very good at adapting to the changes. I have no issues with the product, so far it works really well. And all the equipment is functioning how it is supposed to. It is easy to work with them.

Salesman was straight to the point. So far I've only had like one or two issues and when I called, they took care of it and got everything handled. Installation was quick and fast and they were professional and they made sure that they didn't leave any trash behind or anything else. We've had it for about three years and so far I haven't had any issues with anything and haven't had to call about anything at all.

They are a little more expensive but I think the quality that you get basically offsets that. Trisamart so far been fantastic and working with the consultants I've been working with. The survey and installation was basically seamless and there was total communication all the way along the line and great follow up afterwards to ensure that everything was working properly. They were very responsive that issues I had with the system and they come out take care of it. They were able to provide the answers I needed.

I am happy with TriSMART Solar and their customer service. However, I am NOT happy with the person who sold us the solar panelis. I am Extremely disappointed about how he has handled certain aspects about our loan agreement. He PROMISED us referral compensation payments, but he has Never once adhered to his promise. His sales techniques are crap and he is Never available to help when I need answers. I realize he is Not personally affiliated with TriSMART Solar, therefore I do Not blame them. TriSMART Solar has always been available to answer my questions and offer me good advice.

I would said 5 just because they've been very responsive and you know if there was any issues you know as I'm sure you know when. You know once it's installed and they're still the process of getting everything expected before you turn it on and all that kind of stuff and and they were very supportive as far as that way and then trying to make sure that you know they sometimes it is a process you know word to get now your city out there but also you know my electric provider and things like that and. So they were they were pretty good trying to keep abreast of all added in making sure that didn't take longer than than the appropriate amount of time you know you know even though the north is a process do take currently we're still good in doing that. everything seems to be working appropriately everything seems to be running the way that the way they were going to be it's not. Paul P. early or anything like that it it all seems to be working very smoothly and well I would have an issue. I said I haven't had any issues. And everything that are my question with them is been met my satisfaction so. I've actually already mentioned it to a few people. It was really very simple and easy and I mean really you don't have to do much at all given access to our garage which has a our our panel you know our our panel or whatever and then you know obviously access to the to the backs and when you do have the sent back in on it but it was not immediately. Is very quick and easy was working from home or to try again and destructive you know might not at all as far as noise or anything like that I mean you get all those pretty simple and quick. Just the fact that everybody was very professional I emailed the installation process was very sweetly and you know the. Customer support and everything else very good as far as you know following checking on you know how its going the emails that I received your email also very helpful and are you see. Reminding me of you even I'm just you know happen with you soon and and even though it's I don't you know pay and everything like that it's still nice to to get the email in the mail you know Hey is. And you know whatever so he I think it's just overall it's just a really good. Really good process and the communications are really good so.

Roy Mesquite, TX

My experience has been very positive. They were able to communicate with me. Throughout the process we had delays because of the city and they were able to keep me informed on the progress of the project. The equipment looks good, not bulky and doesn't distort the look of my home. The cost is very efficient. The whole process took about four months but they followed through on every step and were trustworthy. Installation was very quick and efficient, took two and a half days and I was very happy with the look of escalation and the timeliness. This was a pleasant experience from initial contract throughout installation and performance so I would highly recommend trismart to others who are looking for solar panels.

The installation process was bumpy. The guy said what time he would show up and then he actually showed up thirty minutes later. They had to come back and finish the job, it was about a three week process. Actual work time was probably about 5 hours. I have no issues with the product, it has worked great. I would definitely recommend them to anybody.

Whenever a service tech was coming out I had a proper notice of when they would arrive. They were on time and they kept a clean work site. They were just really good to work with. I have had no issues with the equipment. I recommended them to my stepdaughter.

The rates were pretty good at first. You can never get a hold of customer service. Installation was not very good, it took them several times to get the panels up and then when they did get a mop they left the mess and they had to come back out and clean it up after I complained about it. I'm not getting a lot of savings from the product. I'm not very happy with the service at all actually. I did recommended it to a couple of friends and the guy never got back to him.

I get good information from them. They do answer your questions and you can get in contact with them when you need to get answers. The installation process was done really quickly, they installed them and they cleaned up after themselves and it didn't take a long period of time so I was satisfied with that. They told me a battery would be included with the equipment but I didn't get that. They are a pretty good company.

Installation was very fast. I have two microcomputers that are not responding and I've had it for quite a while now. The installers did not do a very good job of cleaning up after themselves. It's been almost a year and a half now and I still have electrical trash as you go down around in the yard from wires and stuff like that. I have recommended them twice.

The people that came to visit agave me a detailed explanation about trismart. They have gotten back with me pretty quickly about issues concerning my complaints. It took a week to have a third party company come out and they did make a few mistakes on my home and on my property but I was able to call and trismart took care of it. So far it's been pretty good. I just haven't seen the wattage that would like to see, but overall a positive experience, just not exactly what I was expecting, but it's still good.

todd Reeves Round Rock, TX

It is hard to say, I am not unhappy and I am not necessarily impressed. They did a great job of installation and it works, as far as I can tell well. But I need time to determine if it was worth the investment or not. I installed in last spring, so performance in the summer in texas is not going to great. I need a whole year to judge. I would like to see them offer an evaluation of performance report every 3 months. Which is almost how long I have had my system. then maybe a clearer conclusion. Right now, with the payments spread out over 25 years even at 2% at my age of 59, does not really look like the smartest decision on my part. Of course, I am not a greeney. All I want to do is not be affected by stupid goverment regulations and policies, which this system may do over time. I do not like that I can't easily disconnect from the grid and reconnect when I so desire. This makes installing batteries illogical.

If I ever had an issue I could call. And they would take care of it or someone would get right back with me. We have had it for almost a year now and have had zero problems. Everything seems to be working great. I am very likely to recommend them to a friend. The installation process was simple and easy, they told us the date and time. And everything was done on schedule as promised. The person who came by the house and explained the whole process was knowledgeable about it and answered all the questions. We have been very happy going with solar.

Whenever I called they were always respond to my questions and very knowledgeable on their on their materials in solar panel systems. It was basically seamless, the installers came by introduce themselves they let me know what they would do and how long it would take them and what part of the house should be working on and everything went without incident.Iit's been very durable, my neighbors have had different companies that came by and they install that and they've had trouble they've had issues with the panels and I have not.

Once I got my solar panels installed, half of them didn't work. They never called and told me that until a year later. They don't have good communication and I was disappointed. I thought the installation process went very well because the first time they had to send another crew out to come back and do additional work because it wasn't done right the first time so I was happy with that but not the first part of installation. They don't let anyone know when their bills are going up and they don't answer when customers have questions. They hide from the actual problems. I wouldn't recommend TriSMART.

We have the app and my husband uses it all the time. I got an email that showed me how much electricity we've used and how much we are saving and whatnot so that I like the panels. Installation process was good.There was no issues. Everybody I talked to was not very good at explaining anything. We even had people that came over here said they were part of trismart but they weren't. The only reason why they lowered the sales price was because another guy was offering something lower. They were talking so much crap about the other guy that saying he's not even from corporate but they weren't from corporate either, they're not even from here. But they matched it anyways.

They were just so nice and helpful right off the bat - nothing but honesty from them. I really didn't feel the need to go search around with other solar companies after talking to them. . I was paying $330 a month for electricity and that's down to $155. Overall great - the only issue was the disconnect between the loan financing vs the salesman vs the installation. It was a little disconnected and it took a little more effort to figure out who I need to talk to. Not terrible but I think that could be improved
