Solar installation and followup

I was entirely satisfied with our Solarpod experience. The installation went smoothly and the followup was excellent. All questions were answered as they arose and I was very pleased with the rebate and tax credit info provided. Overall a great experience. I can highly recommend Solarpod.

So far, so good!

We were interested in going solar but were concerned that installation of solar panels would damage our new roof. Once we came across a SolarPod system that didn't require screwing everything down, we were ready to give it a go. SolarPod staff was great at explaining how the whole process works, what we should expect, etc. When time came for the installation, the crew did a nice job and finished things in a couple of days. SolarPod staff then led us through the finishing process. We're six months into the system and so far, everything has gone well! We don't plan on moving any time soon but would definitely work with SolarPod again if we were looking for solar.

SolarPod panels and Z-Rack A+ experience!

SolarPod was a great company to work with! They took care of all the paperwork and got the Eagan Minnesota building approval process done quickly. I used their Z-Rack system so I have zero holes in my roof and no heavy concrete to weigh it down. I used their 5.92kw system in 2021, upfront cost on their Z Plan PPA was $8880 and only $275 a year for 7 years after. I plan to purchase the remaining part after the 7 years. Total amount was $17,918 and I got a nearly 35% savings without the in full large purchase price upfront. Savings on energy bills has been wonderful! Thank you so much!

Great to work with!

The whole crew at SolarPods was great to work with! Starting with Mouli, the owner, all the way through the sales, project management, installation and final sign-off process I felt like I was in good hands. I highly the SolarPods team for your solar install.

Home installation of Solarpod

We decided to invest in solar at our home in Wayzata to help offset energy costs and contribute to the general global effort to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and to a "greener' environment overall. Our installation has been in place since July of 2023 and everything is working according to plan. The installation was delivered on time with no surprises/ delays. We are very satisfied with the product and its performance to date.

Solarpod is great

Just did a diy installation of ground mount solarpod it was a satisfying and empowering experience. Solarpod arrived on a pallet delivered to my home. All components were clearly marked which allowed for an easy assembly. The team at solarpod we’re friendly and helpful from pre order questions to walking me through emphase envoy commissioning. This is a great product that allows a homeowner to go solar at a affordable price.
