Solar Soleil LLC Overview:

Solar Soleil LLC is a small company based in Chicago, Illinois. The company was founded in 2018 and since then it has struggled to get a hold of the market. The company comprises three employees across all of its locations and our experts estimate that it generates a revenue of around $150000 yearly. Although the company takes care of the whole processes from procuring solar panels to installations, it charges markedly high prices. 


The company also aims to spread awareness regarding renewable energy goals. Currently, the company’s customer base is only homeowners. In addition to installing solar panels, the company also insulates your home to save energy.  The performance of the company seems quite weak, on the basis of the reviews we trawled. Solar Soleil received only one positive review compared to three complaints on various sites. 



Solar Soleil Panel services and features: 

Solar Soleil Products: 

Solar Soleil is a vertically integrated company that takes care of every step of solar panel installation. It makes the installation process easy by offering;

Solar Panels: Solar Soleil is using the technology of Palmetto, which is providing a simple affordable solar technology. Additionally, the company offers insulation for homes which reduces energy costs. 

Procurement: The company takes care of everything from permits to procuring the equipment.

Financing: The company also helps its customers by arranging finance for the installation through loans. 


Most of the business performed by Solar Soleil is in Chicago, Illinois. However, it is also located in eight other states across the United States. 


Solar Soleil Costs: 

Customer’ reviews show that Solar Soleil quotes high prices. However, the company claims that its services and products guarantee real savings. Reviewers do not think that the quality of services matches the prices which it charges. Moreover, the company offers various incentives to attract customers. Through referrals, it reduces the cost of installation by around $1000 for each party. If the customers are unable to keep up with upfront payments the company provides excellent financing support. Customers can also benefit from federal tax credit. Despite all these incentives, the customers are not happy with the services. Overall, the company is not recommended due to its poor quality of service. 


Solar Soleil Legitimacy:

Solar Soleil is registered in Chicago, Illinois with no accreditation from Better Business Bureaus or any other industry body. The company provides its contact details, location, email address, and phone numbers on its website. It does not have any presence on social media platforms. So, it has been difficult for our experts to explore customers’ feelings about the company. According to our experts, the company is not living up to the market standards. Palmetto is Solar Soleil’s premier business partner.


 The company is headed by John L. Alexander. His expertise lies in the area of media, communications, technology, and finance. He has been unable to lift the company to a leading position in the market. 


Solar Soleil Maintenance:

Customers generally find the company difficult to approach. Customers complained about its poor quality of products and installation mechanism. As per the complaints the company never responds to the customers complaints, due to which they have to use other services.


The company vows to provide follow-up on its installments, provide technical support and warranty. However, the customer’s reviews show that it is not living up to its promises. Although it is easy to contact them for the initial installation, they rarely come back for fixing faulty installations. Its poor service is reflected in its customers’ reviews.




Overall, Solar Soleil’s services are not appreciated by customers due to the poor quality of the installation. The data we analyzed from various sources shows that the company has not been able to fully capture its customer’s confidence. For the reasons mentioned, we do not recommend the company.

We hired Herc Du Soleil for our residential solar project in Toronto after getting proposals from 5 different companies. Overall we had a great experience with Gopal and his team. They took care of all the design, planning and permitting and he was very responsive and professional to all our questions. Our project also changed slightly and they we’re flexible with that. Gopal also provided guidance on how to manage Toronto hydro which can be challenging at times. Our solar system is now generating power and everything is working great so far. I would definitely recommend Herc du Soleil.

By far one of the best experiences working with any kind of contractor. Patient, responsive, takes time to explain every detail, quick to respond even after project has been completed and paid for. Gopal took care of all the paperwork, city permits, adjusted to my complicated schedule and responded to endless questions. System has been installed and is performing great!

(Translated by Google) Bad experience! When Soley Solar GmbH had postponed the upcoming date by half a year, we wanted to get out of the contract, unfortunately it wasn't easy, we were only able to come to an agreement against a severance payment to them. Very rude behavior!!!

Schlechte Erfahrung! Als die Firma Soley Solar GmbH den bevorstehenden Termin um ein halbes Jahr verschoben hatte, wollten wir aus dem Vertrag aussteigen, einfach war das leider nicht, erst gegen Abfindungszahlung an die, konnten wir uns einigen. Sehr unkulantes Verhalten!!!

Gopal and his crew installed a large residential system for us this year. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, honest, and has continued to be helpful to a curious/interested customer now months down the road. I would absolutely recommend their services without hesitation.

(Translated by Google) hello everyone
I cannot understand what Mr. M. Reim said. My PV system was completed last week and everything is great and everything is tidy. Now I have to wait until another meter is installed, and I don't need any instruction beforehand because nothing works anyway. It's probably different with Mr. Reim. Every craftsman is definitely looking forward to such customers.
This is the end of the review, not eternal, unobjective blah blah

Hallo miteinander,
ich kann die Äußerung von Herrn M. Reim nicht nachvollziehen. Meine PV Anlage wurde letzte Woche fertiggestellt und alles Top, und auch alles aufgeräumt. Jetzt muss ich warten, bis ein anderer Zähler eingebaut ist, und vorher brauche ich auch keine Einweisung, da ja eh nichts funktioniert. Bei Herrn Reim ist das wahrscheinlich anders. Auf solche Kunden freut sich bestimmt jeder Handwerker.
Hiermit ist die Bewertung beendet, nicht ewiges, unsachliches Bla Bla
