Founded in 2009, Uptown Solar focuses on providing sustainable, cost-effective solar solutions. The company offers residential and commercial services in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Montana, South Carolina, and Texas.
Uptown Solar offers a wide variety of payment options to best fit the needs of each individual customer. These options include outright purchase, loan, and PPA. Outright purchases are beneficial for customers with cash on hand who would like to see high financial returns. Loans are a good option for customers who are interested in solar ownership but do not have the capital to pay for the system upfront. PPAs work well for customers who do not want the responsibility of owning a solar system but would like to save money on utility bills each month.
Many solar companies only offer services in one state. However, Uptown Solar offers its solar services in nine states: California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Montana, South Carolina, and Texas.
Uptown Solar works with several reputable partners, including California First Efficiency Financing, Clean Power Finance, NAHB, Hero, Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), EnergyStar, Ygrene Works, Sunnova, and Sunrun.
While Uptown Solar's website is easy to navigate, the information provided is not enough to help a potential customer make a preliminary decision about whether or not Uptown Solar might be the right solar company for them. For example, Uptown Solar makes no mention of price, warranties, service terms, contract lengths, system monitoring, or moving options.
We searched online public forums and found mixed customer feedback ratings for Uptown Solar. The majority of complaints regarded pushy sales tactics. It's typical for any company to have a few negative reviews floating around online, but Uptown Solar doesn't have many positive customer feedback ratings to outweigh the negative ones.
