SolarMax Technology Inc., is dedicated to being active in the communities we service. SolarMax donated and installed a 500kW solar array valued at $1 Million to UC Riverside as part of the CECERT Smart Integrated Grid Initiative. We founded SolarMax University at a San Bernardino High School, to help at risk students in their senior year of High School prepare to become certified solar installers. SolarMax partnered with Altura Credit Union and Cal State San Bernardino, to host a "Book Drive" to distribute 50,000 free books to teachers to get kids excited about reading. SolarMax also sponsors dozens of community events year round.
Our Inside Sales Department makes it easy for homeowners to obtain a quote without any pressure, avoiding those face to face meetings when you are asked to sign on the spot.

Our simple process
YOUR FREE CONSULTATION:
Take advantage of a free consultation with our solar experts. We begin our project with an initial phone call to discuss your basic energy needs. Understanding your goals allow our team to determine which solar path is best for you and to provide you with the most cost-conscious solution for turning your home solar.
REVIEWING YOUR PROPOSAL:
You will receive your tailor made solar proposal on a system designed to eliminate your energy consumption with your utility company. This proposal will provide you a visual solar panel layout on your home, equipment & material information, savings over your current utility bill, and your return on the investment of solar.
SIGN YOUR SOLAR AGREEMENT
Once you realize Solarmax is the right installer for your solar project, you will select Solarmax as your installer on your Energysage portal. We will then send you the agreement for review and signature. Our agreement includes a (25) year installation warranty on parts and labor, (10) year warranty against roof leaks, and (10) year financial reimbursement for any lost production under 95% of the systems targeted annual production. We handle all administrative tasks, including engineering design, permits, and submitting the inner-connection documents with the utility company.
SITE EVALUATION & PROJECT TIMELINE
From signing the agreement until being installed can range from 45-60 days depending on the size of the system, city approval timeline, and approval timeline for homeowners with an HOA. Within 5 business days after signing the agreement we will schedule the site evaluation appointment. Our technicians will take measurements of the roof lines, check existing roofing shingles and attic rafters, calculate shading percentages, and evaluate the existing electrical panel. This information is then assigned to one of our engineers who will then design your system.
GET YOUR SOLAR INSTALLATION
The installation of the project is normally 1-2 business days. Once the installation is complete, your assigned project manager will schedule the city inspection which typically 1-3 days post installation. Once the city inspector signs off your project, our utility relations department will submit the inner-connection application and most utility companies can take 7-14 business days to approve.
PERMISSION TO OPERATE & TURNING ON YOUR SYSTEM!
As soon as you have received Permission to Operate (PTO) from your utility company, our customer service department will contact you to set up the monitoring account so you are able to monitor your solar system production via phone, tablet, or computer.
