Specific solar panels offered
Although on the website of Contemporary Solar company, there is no detailed information about types of solar panels, the company briefly discussed two, namely, “The Roof Mounted solar array” and “The Ground Mounted solar array.”
Specific Types of Solar offered
The Roof Mounted solar array: The Roof mounted solar array protects the Roof from elements. It is beneficial because it doesn’t take up space in the yard. It is cheaper than a Ground-mounted solar array and requires fewer materials like wire and mounting.
However, it is also a little harder to clean and maintain, and in some cases, it adds extra weight to the roof, which will require additional support.
The Ground-mounted solar array: It is easy accessibility for cleaning and maintenance and can be positioned at the optimal angle of the sun. One of its pros is that it can be installed as an awning or carport.

|It has Electrical Contractor #55330.|
|It has certification of NABCEP PV.|
|It is partnered with American Gutter and commercial Roofing St.Louis.|
All these facts are an indication of a legitimate company. In legitimacy, the contemporary should be 9/10.
Nothing has been said about maintenance services on the company’s official website, which suggests that the company may not offer these services. Potential customers must confirm this when speaking with the company. If they do not offer maintenance on installation, then you will have to contact other companies for the job, which can be costly.
The company has great customer service. It replies fast to emails, phone calls, etc. Good customer reviews are proof of this.
Here’s the company’s response to our secret shopper inquiry:
|“Contemporary Solar is a primarily in-house service company in that we design, sell, install, and warrant all our systems “In-House” with our own employees. In addition, we sub-contract directly with specially trained electrical companies who themselves are licensed by the state of Missouri, or other appropriate state.”
Someone from our installation, or Sales staff, who is familiar with the project, is to be present in all inspections.
The SolarEmpower View
Contemporary Solar is a company that fulfills all the needs of its customers. Their system is good and recommended, but one of the major flaws is that it does not provide any relevant maintenance information. Still, when it comes to quality, we recommend it.
