However, the company states that they install turnkey systems with the customer’s specific needs in mind.

Installation Costs and Process
Mohave Solar has a few ways to help reduce costs and deal with finances:
|A free estimate on solar panel installation to power either your business or home.
|Offer a variety of financing options, including low-rate, no-money-down loans.
|According to a customer review, the customer contacts your utility company to see if they provide a rebate.
|Helps customers take advantage of the 26% or 30% Federal Incentive Tax Credit of the total system cost.
The cost of the solar systems depends on the energy usage and size of the system required; however, experts averaged their pricing to be $22,712, with systems ranging between $5,000 and $50,000. It is unclear how this price range fits against the average solar panel installation pricing in Arizona; however, customer reviews find their pricing to be fair. As of October 2022, the average solar panel cost in Arizona is $2.33/W, and we recommend using this to determine the competitiveness of their pricing.

The company’s contact page displays their phone number, address, live chat, and a contact form available. When SolarEmpower emailed the company, though, no response was received, which may indicate some minor communication issues. Upon looking at customer reviews, a few shared the same sentiment, indicating that communication can falter, specifically with the sales team and around the installation time.

All reviews are responded to by the company, some by the director of Mohave Solar, Danny Stifle, indicating that issues and complaints put forward by unfavorable reviews have been resolved.
These highlight Mohave Solar’s high levels of maintenance.
