Solar Panels and Services
Specific Solar Panels Offered
SunPower Residential Black AC: SunPower panels have been on the good end of reviews, known for their high-producing half-cut monocrystalline cells, efficiency ratings of over 21.2%, low temperature coefficients of just -0.29%, and annual degradation rates of 0.25%. Nobody complains about them performing poorly over their 25-year output warranty term. Besides, they’re all-black, so they blend in easily with rooftops.
SunPower Standard Residential AC: These modules have slightly higher wattages and efficiency ratings than all-black panels. The specifications of these panels, which are similar to those of SunPower’s all-black panels, help them succeed where others fail.
Silfab Elite: Silfab modules have competitive specifications, especially their 30-year performance warranty period. While their temperature coefficients may be slightly higher, -0.37%. They also degrade at 0.5% each year, so their performance after 30 years isn’t all that mind-blowing. But their efficiency ratings have a 19.9% floor and a 21.4% ceiling, so they’re a good deal.
REC Alpha Pure Series: The panels in this series boast power ratings ranging from 390 to 410 watts and remarkable efficiency ratings of 21.1% to 22.2%. Furthermore, they come with exceptional power, labor, and performance warranties lasting up to 25 years and experience a mere 0.25% degradation per year. The sleek, compact black design adds to their appeal.
Specific Types of Solar Offered
Residential solar: Sunergy handles both grid-tie and hybrid residential solar installations. Both types are connected to the utility grid. However, hybrid arrays include Enphase, Tesla, or LG Chem batteries to store electricity for days when the grid is down. This company installs solar panels on only composition shingles, standing seam metal, metal panels, and new flat roofs.
Commercial solar: Sunergy also takes on commercial solar projects for schools and municipalities.
Installation Costs and Processes
The customer obtains a tailored quote for their specific requirements. Sunergy Systems then designs the system and processes applications for permits and financing (if involved) before installing the customized solar system.
Sunergy does not give any public estimate of how much its services could cost but calculates the cost of each project, detailing the costs of equipment, workmanship, and other aspects of the project. This cost is communicated to the customer. The company’s prices are competitive, with no hidden fees.
Sunergy also provides unsecured solar loans featuring loan terms of up to 20 years, $0 down, and a 90-day payment-free period. As solar leases are unavailable in Washington, the company does not offer this financing option. Customers who have financed their solar systems through this company have rejoiced.
Sunergy Systems is registered as both a general and electrical contractor in Washington. Boasting an A+ rating, the company is accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). As a certified Tesla Powerwall Installer and a member of the Washington Solar Energy Industries Association (WASEIA), Sunergy Systems is also recognized as a SunPower Elite Dealer. Additionally, the company employs NABCEP-certified PV installation professionals, confirming its legitimacy.
Sunergy Systems offers a comprehensive SolarClad Warranty on its solar services, ensuring exceptional product quality and work performance. This warranty encompasses a 10-year workmanship warranty, a 25-year product warranty, and a 10-year performance guarantee.
Generally, customers find it convenient to contact the company for inquiries or grievances. While there was an isolated incident where the company declined to rectify damages resulting from subpar workmanship, Sunergy Systems typically endeavors to address and resolve any issues that may arise with its products or services.
