SolarMax Technology Services and Features

SunSpark Solar Panels: SunSpark solar panels are designed, engineered, and assembled in the SolarMax California headquarters, a 165,000-square-foot facility in Riverside, California. In 2017 and 2018, SunSpark solar panels ranked in the top tier solar panels worldwide in terms of reliability (as assessed by DNV-GL, an independent industry-standard testing lab).

Made from monocrystalline silicon, The SunSpark 300 Mono Module is a 300-375 Watt solar panel with a higher output per square foot and higher solar energy efficiency.


Home Solar EV Solution: This solution is to help electric vehicle users maximize their savings and minimize their dependency on non-renewable energy. An EV charging station is set up, and you can charge your electric vehicle up to 6 times faster than the factory 120V charging cable that came with your car. Users can also track solar and grid consumption for visibility and control of household energy usage. The system can be operated remotely through a mobile app; you can turn to charge on and off directly from your smartphone. You can also see the charging duration, charge energy, and percent charge on the application.


Installation Costs and Process


Reviewers generally reported that their whole process of ‘going solar’ with Solarmax technology was done professionally and thoroughly. The assigned staff gives comprehensive details of all aspects of the process. Reviewers confirmed that Solarmax’s quotes have competitive prices with room for negotiation. The financial plans are said to be very good; tax rebates were received as and when due. Most customers say that their monthly electricity bills have been reduced from hundreds of dollars to a range of 10-20 dollars.

Some users even reported that they are building up credits each month, adding up to hundreds of dollars (power sold back to Southern California Edison via California’s Net Energy Metering program). Users are getting value for their money and are finding the system easy to navigate as they can remotely monitor it from their mobile phones 24/7.

The company’s customer support is average. Some reviewers say that every time they called or sent emails, they got responses promptly. However, a handful of reviewers complained about the company not responding to their calls, voicemails, and emails. Though most of the customers’ issues were later resolved, it took a longer time than expected.


The SolarEmpower View

Solarmax delivers high-quality products complying with the highest industry standards. Their products and services are relatively cheap. However, their response time seems to be longer than customers envisage. Overall, customers should expect professional installation, high-quality systems, and a return on investment.
