Here at Solar Action Alliance, our main goal is to inform consumers about residential solar energy. While that often means informative articles and information about solar pricing and tax credits, it also means finding and relaying the top solar companies.

The solar world is full of companies that offer residential solar panel installations. Some of these companies are great. Others are not so great. Most people interested in installing solar on their home are not experts in either solar energy or solar panel installation. That’s why we’ve created our “Top Solar Companies” series.

The “Top Solar Companies” series consists of lists of the top solar installers in each area of the United States. We have thoroughly researched and chosen these companies based on a number of factors, including:

  • Price
  • Quality of Work
  • Speed of Process
  • Communication
  • Follow-Up
