ADT Solar review

The ADT logo can be found on homes across the United States, broadcasting the company's home security systems. Solar probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think about ADT, but in 2021, they entered the residential solar market by acquiring Sunpro Solar, creating ADT Solar. So what does going solar with ADT Solar look like? Let's dive in.

In late 2021, ADT announced its plans to acquire Sunpro Solar and begin operating the company under the ADT name, creating ADT Solar. This acquisition combined the trusted ADT brand name (well-known outside of the solar industry for home security systems) with Sunpro's 15 years of residential solar installation expertise. ADT doesn't manufacture its own solar equipment – it serves as a solar installer, offering in-house installations with equipment from other companies. ADT Solar operates in 24 states and has plans to expand further.

As we've explained, ADT Solar doesn't offer its own line of equipment as part of its solar services, but here's a breakdown of the equipment they typically install:

Solar panels

ADT Solar primarily installed LG Solar panels when they first acquired Sunpro Solar in 2021. However, in February 2022, LG announced they were exiting the solar industry and would no longer offer solar panels. (LG will still honor warranties, so some companies with remaining inventory may still install LG panels.) In light of this disruption, ADT has said it will only install panels that offer a 25-year warranty and back them with a 25-year production guarantee provided by ADT.

Solar inverters

While the question of panel brand may remain nebulous as ADT Solar determines its panel brand preference, they have a clear choice for inverters. They install Enphase microinverters for all of their installations, one of the top brand options for microinverters currently on the market. Enphase microinverters operate with 97 percent efficiency and have a 25-year-long warranty.

Solar batteries

Battery storage is a good choice for anyone whose utility company includes time-of-use rates or demand charges, doesn't offer net metering, or experiences frequent outages. If you're interested in battery backup as part of your solar panel system, ADT Solar gives homeowners a choice between the Tesla Powerwall and the Enphase IQ battery. These solar batteries are both highly rated and offer various configuration options. They're also both stackable, meaning you can add additional batteries depending on how much backup you need, and include an end-of-warranty capacity rating that guarantees your battery will retain 70 percent of its original capacity by the end of its 10-year warranty.

Here's a quick breakdown of some key facts about ADT Solar that can help you decide if it's right for you:


While all of ADT Solar's warranty offerings are competitive with the current industry standards, their workmanship warranty is significantly longer than most.

  • Power production guarantee**: 25 years**; if the solar power produced by your panels is less than what was guaranteed, you will receive the difference in a cash payment.

  • Workmanship and labor warranty: 25 years, covers the workmanship and solar panel installation by ADT Solar.

  • Performance warranty: 25 years, covers any issues that might arise with your solar panels that aren't related to workmanship, labor, or power production.

  • Enphase microinverter guarantee: 25 years, covers any issues that might arise specifically relating to your Enphase microinverters.

Check out EnergySage customer reviews of ADT Solar and Sunpro on our website.

It's important to note that several factors can influence a customer review, including the salesperson that someone interacted with and where they were in the process when they left the review.

ADT Solar combines the trusted ADT brand name with the industry knowledge of Sunpro. They offer competitive warranties and are installing some of the top products available on the market. They're also backed by the reputable larger parent company ADT, which has almost 150 years of history behind it. You can rely on ADT Solar to honor their warranties and provide any support you need during the lifespan of your solar system. ADT also offers roofing services in addition to solar installation. If anything unexpected arises regarding your roof during the solar installation, they can address it to avoid slowing down your installation.

Remember that their pricing information is unavailable online when deciding to go with ADT Solar instead of a different solar company. While this is not atypical, it could be a deciding factor when determining which company will install your solar system. They also have not yet settled on a new preferred panel brand, but this can offer you more options when investing in a new solar system.

While ADT Solar is a new name in the solar market, its product offerings, warranties, and company longevity make it competitive. It's important to feel as confident as you can that a company will be around to honor a 25-year warranty, and ADT Solar has the ADT brand name to inspire that confidence.
