Highly recommended; things took longer than expected, but otherwise it was very good experience. Nice crew, high quality work, pricing in line with expectations.

One of our solar panels was not functioning. This happened a couple of years after the solar installation. We called PPM Solar - they diagnosed the problem virtually and then came and fixed it. All costs were covered through the warranty. We are extremely happy with our solar system which covers most of our energy use. I highly recommend it for people who have to run air conditioner in summer, like we do.
It is a good company. highly recommended.

From start to finish the team at PPM Solar excelled in all aspects of the process and experience. As a first-time solar customer, I had lots of questions about the best setup for my specific needs. I am in the country where power outages can be more frequent and prolonged. I wanted a system that could also provide backup power during prolonged outages. From sales through final inspection, PPM Solar team understood my situation and goals, designed a fabulous solution and worked with me on timeframe so we could do panels first, then battery storage in a later phase. For every question I had, they were super helpful in getting me answers... they even encouraged my questions ???? Their install team was super professional and efficient. Their project coordinator was amazing, making my part of the process easy and efficient, and kept me informed every step of the way. At the final walkthrough, I appreciated all the expertise and recommendations they shared on my system's operation and best practices to keep the panels clean, etc. It is clear to me that this team is both expert in solar, but also they love solar. They bring that great energy to all their client interactions and are happy to educate us as we learn our new systems. I am thrilled they are my solar team! Exciting to be moving forward with them on battery storage. I am delighted to give them 5 stars on expertise, client relations and ease of the entire process. LOVE my system, and grateful to PPM Solar!

I can’t recommend PPM Solar enough for your solar panel needs. They were clear about how many panels were needed and where they would be the most efficient. They did the install along with adding a Tesla wall charger (which they are certified to do) all in one day. Their crew has clearly worked together for a good while as evidenced by how efficiently they worked together. Their entire staff from the installers to the electricians, production manager, administrative staff etc are all great and seem to really enjoy their work. They are a local company that has been working in the area and I would select them again and have recommended them to my friends.

PPM Solar was great. It took a little longer than expected but working with Gabby was easy and she kept me informed. We had some issues with the county and power company but it all got handled. Everyone I encountered was professional and friendly. The install went smooth, the panels look great and the app is easy to use. Now I am not worried about the power going off at any time.

Tax Credit is Extended!

That means additional TEN years for consumers to take advantage of this incredible tax credit program. And not only that – clients that install solar energy systems in 2022 get an increase from 26% to 30%! That’s a nice bonus — a whopping $1,500 for an average solar client!

The federal solar tax credit is currently set at 30%. It is, however, scheduled to decrease in 2033 from 30% down to 26% and from 26% to 22% in 2034. There has never been a better time to go solar!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your installation process and how long does it take?

Typical installation takes one day. Your total project turnaround time may depend on multiple factors and will be provided with your quote.

What financing options and incentives do I have?

While the cost may vary based on the specifics of your home, we collaborate with multiple banks to secure the lowest possible monthly payments while offering competitive interest rates. Your consultant will provide approximate payment figures with your proposal, and there is no need for a credit inquiry.

How do I know if my home is a good candidate for solar?

The orientation and slope of your roof, along with the existing electrical infrastructure, need to be assessed to determine your specific solution, solar system size, and return on investment (ROI). Most homes with partial to no shade are suitable candidates for a solar system. If your home is completely shaded, we will need to make arrangements to ensure a sufficient solar window. We can assist in identifying which trees might need to be trimmed or removed.
