GoGreenSolar allows you to buy as much or as little as you want to make up a solar energy system. If you’re looking for something specific such as Micro inverter kits, string inverter kits or something as minimal as grid ties, you can buy those directly from the website. If you have bought your system elsewhere and just need permitting, that’s on offer as well.
If you want to buy the panels themselves, GoGreenSolar works with industry leading companies such as Suniva, SolarWorld and GigaWatt Inc to provide solar panels of all kinds. You can search by lowest $/W, lowest $/Panel, or panels which are made in the USA. You can choose Mono panels or Black panels which are known to be more aesthetically pleasing. GoGreenSolar is offering you the wholesale prices, with the option to include installation, permitting, and customer support on top of that.
You can buy full solar kits directly from GoGreenSolar which help make the process a lot smoother. System Maintenance kits keep your panels clean and safe from animals. Grid Tie Inverters can also be bought separately, which let you sell surplus energy back to the utility company, a great way to reduce your bills even further.
GoGreenSolar offers an Interconnection Service to help you get up and running in the quickest time possible, and with utmost ease. This means that all your permits, rebates and financial processing are taken care of by the company. This service is available to anyone who buys a full solar panel kit with GoGreenSolar. They can get loans of as much as $12,000 approved in as little as 30 seconds. The friendly staff are experts in solar lease program requirements, so you’re guaranteed the best rebate.
When it comes to Installation, this is all done third party. The website has a thorough map of all the areas where they are linked to verified licensed solar installers who can make installation a piece of cake. These are mainly on the west coast around California, and along the whole east coast, from New York and Ohio down to Florida.
On the GoGreenSolar website you will find installation guides to use as self-help, which cover most of the equipment available to purchase. These can be a real help in seeing how much work is involved getting started.
The various installation companies may offer monitoring services such as check ups or mobile tracking, but there are no monitoring options with GoGreenSolar.
Efficiency is measured by how much usable energy comes from the sunlight onto your solar panels. The industry leading panels are coming in at around 22%, but anywhere from 15% is a good amount of efficiency to expect from your panels. GoGreenSolar offers micro inverters, allowing each panel to run independently generating more power overall and giving less likelihood of glitches due to one panel being inefficient.
GoGreenSolar also sells optimizer kits with SolarEdge panels. These combine the benefits of micro and string inverters, and are generally used for larger areas of solar panels. They are compatible with the Tesla Powerwall battery and are great for larger businesses and government.
It can get pretty confusing on the GoGreenSolar website, as there isn’t really an all inclusive option to buy. There are kits for buying solar panels, which begin at around $5,000, and can range to $20,000. They guarantee you will receive the best price on panels, or they will refund the difference. Installation typically starts at around $0.95 per Watt. Grid Tie Inverters are around $1,500, but can make a real difference to your electricity bill overall. The website offers a solar calculator to help you make sense of your costings and potential savings. This is a great resource to give you a clear picture of how long it will take to pay back your purchase. The Interconnection service is another cost of $250.
GoGreenSolar also offers plenty of financing options, all intended to help you buy your system outright and take advantage of the many federal tax credits and state credits solar is eligible for. The Solar StepDown Loan, as well as the SolarPlus Loan are both great options for reasonable monthly payments which allow you to take advantage of solar energy and its benefits. If you prefer, you can also use ‘Bill me Later’ via PayPal, or Bitcoin payments.
You can request a free quote to get help with planning your solar energy system, and your technical support will be free from beginning to end, including sizing your system and designing what you want from your panels and other equipment. Permitting and installation can all be done by GoGreenSolar but it will cost you extra. GoGreen does not have live chat but invites you to send an email and fill out the contact form at any time for a speedy response, within one working day. They have telephone support during working hours. It would be great, though, to see each customer receive their own dedicated staff member to work with them from end to end.
GoGreenSolar is a great option for those who want to choose what elements of support they need. Buy components of the system, or a kit to receive everything you need. Add on installation, permitting, financial support, or none of the above. GoGreenSolar will analyse your electricity usage, draft a free layout of your design and give you a detailed solar proposal for how much you could be saving and how soon.
