The Good

  • Instant Satellite Solar Estimates
  • Established Reputation
  • Diverse Solar Sector Options
  • $0 Down Financing
  • Equipment from High-Quality Manufacturers
  • NABCEP Certified

Instant Satellite Solar Estimates

The company provides an instant ballpark estimate for solar using satellite technology. This can be advantageous for potential customers seeking quick and convenient cost estimates for their solar projects.

Established Reputation

WindMar Solar has been in the solar industry since 2002, making it an experienced and established player in the field. This longevity suggests a level of stability and reliability.

Diverse Solar Sector Options

WindMar Solar offers solar solutions for industrial, commercial, residential, and utility customers, catering to a wide range of needs. This diversity allows the company to address various energy requirements.

WindMar Solar's ability to develop, build, and operate solar farms that sell renewable energy directly to the grid is a significant advantage. This aligns with the growing demand for clean energy solutions in the utility sector.

$0 Down Financing

Financing options should be a serious consideration when choosing a solar company. WindMar Solar offers both loans and leasing options. This gives customers flexibility and allows them to take advantage of solar regardless of their financial situation.

WindMar Solar works with financing partners to make $0 down solar purchases possible for customers. 

Equipment from High-Quality Manufacturers

WindMar Solar distributes solar equipment from some of the top manufacturers in the solar industry.

The WindMar Solar team is Tesla and Generac installer-certified for battery storage and backup power solutions. The company installs panels from Panasonic and LG, among others. Inverters on WindMar Solar systems are manufactured by SolarEdge or Enphase. 

NABCEP Certified

WindMar Solar is certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, which sets it apart from other solar installers. All solar contractors should have electrical contracting licenses. However, the most reputable companies have the added certification from the NABCEP.

The NABCEP educates its certified members on the best, most current practices when it comes to solar installation. It helps members stay up to date on industry trends and technological advancements so that they can provide the very best service to customers.

The Bad

  • Limited Geographic Coverage
  • Lack of Warranty Information

Limited Geographic Coverage

WindMar Solar primarily operates in the Caribbean and Florida. Customers located outside these areas won't have access to WindMar's services, limiting the company's reach compared to larger national solar providers.

Lack of Warranty Information

WindMar Solar does not provide any information about warranties on its company website. Product warranties on solar products generally depend on the manufacturer, which might partially explain this. Since WindMar Solar works with multiple manufacturers, the warranties on individual solar systems may vary.

However, the best solar companies also have a labor or workmanship warranty to cover all of the work done on the system. WindMar Solar does not disclose any warranties — whether labor or equipment warranties — on its website.

The Bottom Line

With almost 20 years of experience, top-tier battery storage, and an extensive small-scale to large-scale project installation portfolio, WindMar Solar could be a great option for customers in Florida and the Caribbean. And with an NABCEP certification, the company is expected to uphold a certain standard of excellence, which should provide peace of mind to prospective customers. 

A larger repository of customer reviews would prove valuable to prospective customers. If WindMar has installed solar for you, consider leaving a review below.

Would give 5 stars, but it’s a big process to have solar power installed. Communication is key in anything. A couple times technicians came out to do a task and I had questions and they could not answer them. They could not speak English. There were a few other things that could’ve gone better, but, I’m glad that I shouldn't lose power during any storm or big hurricane now!

Incredible service from start to finish! After they were finished on my roof they walked around the house and picked all the old shingles.

Windmar is an equally reliable company, so I believe that together with Sunnova it provides the best treatment, service and quality in its products.

Initial meetings were very informative and responsive. We did have a lot of difficulty with the main office and getting our services scheduled back in 2021. The scheduling was a terrible experience with missed appointments and long waits on rescheduling because we had very little to no communication with the front office. With this being said, once scheduled and the installers arrived, all was great again. The installers were very knowledge and professional. We are happy with the end product!

Branch Manager and Sales representative were professional, clear and knowledgeable… did not push. We hope and expect the same going forward and after installation. Should the same professional service not be same or encounter bad service I will make sure to rate again.

The thing that I disliked was that the system that I purchase did not include a back and I was told that I would be receiving check from my light company in a couple months due to having stored Energy. Now the story is I had to purchase a back up storage unit. My bill is higher now because I’m paying 2 light bills. One to Windsor and another to FPL.

Unfortunately we fell for the lies of this company as well. There is nothing wrong with the installation itself,but they left a nail on my pool screen and dirty roof. When working with them, we were not given an opportunity to shop around for a best company. I wouldn't recommend this company. A very nice salesperson came and said that we qualify, and olso, that because of our great credit score we are getting only 1%APR but we need to enroll right there and then, because it is a special offer just for us and tomorrow will not be there. Later, we found out that they give it to anyone. They told us we will get a water heater and the variable pool pump for free.when it was completed I realized that they are adding it to the loan. I asked the sales person and she said that its so we would get a tax credit. If you are adding it to my loan,It is not free. I feel like I was taken advantage of and played fool. This is their methods of selling. I received now 2 bills from my electrical company and it went down by 30$ only.i was promised that I will not have any bill from electrical company or a very tiny one.It doesn't seem to work. I am not saving anything. The loan that I pay to them plus the bill from electrical company together is not any savings. The system to track what i produce doesnt work, it is not showing anything. They sent a video about monitoring system but I can't register, it tells me it is for installers.I finally was able to register and it shows some days that i didnt produce at all and other days that i didnt use at all.Scam. I'm stuck with extremely expensive system that doesn't work. It is not producing enough. Sanova didnt back me up on anything. They have no rules, they said ypu are installed and paid, nothing we can do. A few weeks ago they had audacity to call me and offer the battery. I would never go again with Windmar or Sanova. On top of all, their manager was trying to bribe me, she offered me money to remove review from the Google reviews site and more money to put a new good review.
