Elan Solar’s roofing specialists check every roof before installing the solar panels.

If the customer opts to have Elan Solar replace the house’s roof, then the system will be installed for free.
Drawbacks of Elan Solar
Elan Solar appears to operate and install solar systems only in Utah. This is a highly competitive residential solar market, with hundreds of solar providers and this can be considered a threat to its operations.
It is reported that alternative financing options, like solar leases and power purchase agreements (PPA), are unavailable through Elan Solar.
These are cost-effective options for homeowners on fixed budgets,
The average cost of solar installation in Utah is $115,60 to $15,640 for a 5KW system. The average cost per watt is $2.68. We were unable to ascertain Elan Solar’s pricing. However, reviews have suggested that the company’s pricing is competitive in the Utah market.
All solar component equipment provided by Elan Solar has 25-year equipment warranties from the manufacturers. In addition, Elan Solar provides its own 20-year labor/service warranty and this covers issues affecting the panels, inverter, or roof for essentially the lifetime of the solar PV system.
