residential solar installation street view
March 28, 2018

Are you considering solar for your home in the East Bay? A residential solar photovoltaic (PV) system gives you access to clean, renewable energy and unlocks many valuable benefits. By going solar, you’ll not only reduce or eliminate high energy bills but also increase your home’s resale value and reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, with a variety of system configuration options, including ground mounts, there is sure to be a solar solution to suit your needs.

Solar energy systems last a lifetime and it is important to work with the right contractor for your solar installation. Here are a few tips on choosing the right solar company for your project.


If you want a high performing solar electric system that lasts for decades, make sure you are working with an experienced contractor who can offer quality installation and professional workmanship. The right contractor has years of experience in the solar industry and is well established in your area, meaning they can deliver on your system’s warranty.

At Sky Power Solar, for example, we have been installing solar PV systems here in the Tri-Valley Area since 2001. We have decades of collective experience in the solar industry and pride ourselves on providing top quality installation. We’ve been a Diamond Certified PV Installer since 2006 due to the enthusiastic feedback we receive from our customers. And always ask for references! 


Of course, the contractor you choose for your solar installation should also be properly licensed, bonded, and insured. California homeowners can verify contractors using the “Instant License Check” feature on the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) website.

Simply enter the contractor license number (our is #800947, for example), and you’ll find information about licensing, bonding, and insurance.


A solar installation is only as good as its components. Make sure the contractor you hire installs only the highest quality equipment for maximum savings and reliability who will be able to stand behind their warranty 10/15/25 years from now.

At Sky Power Solar, we install SunPower solar panels because we know SunPower offers the highest-rated solar PV technology available. We also install high performance solar panels from Panasonic, which are known for outstanding quality, efficiency, and reliability. 

Ask About Available Financing Options.

When you have a variety of financing options to choose from, you can find a solution that best suits your needs and budget. Ask your solar contractor about financing options such as low-interest solar loans to make sure the right solution will be available to you.


Wherever you live in the East Bay, you can rely on Sky Power Solar for a top quality solar PV system installation. We’ve been installing residential systems in the Tri-Valley, and beyond since 2001, work with only high quality components from solid companies, and are pleased to offer a wide variety of financing options for our customers.
