Chico Solar Works Overview
Chico Roofing was established in 2000 and started its solar sister company, Chico Solar Works, by installing its first solar system in 2010. Due to their inherent affiliation with Chico Roofing Company, they cannot only guarantee your Solar Panels for 25 years but can also guarantee your roofing requirements.
As the company evolved, its customers seemed to like the experience and wanted them to provide more services. They now offer windows, siding, solar energy systems, tubular skylights, and solar attic ventilation fans.

Installation costs and process
Chico Solar offers $0 down in standard loans and PACE programs. With that stated, in the opinion of this company, it’s best to “talk to your bank about solar financing options.” Customers are prompted to find out about possible tax breaks and solar grants or subsidies for the solar system from their power supplier and even their own accountant. In the opinion of this review, this certainly isn’t very transparent or helpful.
Installation only takes a few days. As with any review, the good, the bad, and the ugly must be displayed, and contrary to what has been said about their vagueness about costs, the following customer statements seem to tell an opposite tale:
|“did a great from start to finish. We invited Solar Works out because they are also Chico Roofing & we needed a roof inspection before getting solar. We had Rick out to talk about both & for financing and he explained everything to us.”|
Chico Solar Works is a Better Business Bureau A+ Rated company.
Chico appoints a specialist installer to connect their solar system to the grid. By registering your system with Q CELLS, you have full use of all the solar services provided by Chico. This ensures quick and easy support when you need help. Their solar panels are also inclusive of a 12-year product warranty as well as a best-in-class 25-year performance guarantee.
Regarding their customer service, a few testimonials seem to warn the public, saying that generators have been installed with no permits and by unlicensed electricians.
