Are you concerned about Vivint complaints? While we aren’t happy about what we find, we’ll tell you exactly what Vivint customers have to say.
First off, let’s get something straight: we don’t like to disparage any solar company. At UnderstandSolar, we’re people dedicated to solar energy. We want to see solar flourish on every housetop. And by extension, we want the solar industry and all its installers to flourish as well. You can’t have a solar installation on your roof without solar companies to actually put it up there!
But we’re also dedicated to helping you have the best experience going solar that you can. That’s why we write so many reviews of solar installers, assessing their products, costs, and – most importantly – customer reviews.
If you’re curious what people have to say about Vivint, we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive into the most common Vivint complaints, from actual customer reviews, and try to figure out what is going on.
If you’re in the Salt Lake/Provo area and are wondering how to find the best Utah solar companies, we’ve got you covered here. As great as sunny Utah is for solar, there really aren’t many installers working in the area. However, don’t let that get you down, as you still have some great choices out there. From big, nation-wide installers to local specialty solar companies, you’ve got your pick of the litter!
Today, let’s discuss some questions to ask yourself before contacting installers. We’ll also give you a short list of solar companies working in the Salt Lake City/Provo area, with some introductory information and summary of what real customers have to say about working with them.
Do you live in a sunny state and think that solar panels may be a good investment to cut down on your energy bills and improve the value of your home? Or maybe you live in a less sunny state and believe solar panels would be suicide from an investment perspective. In reality, the decision to go solar is more complicated than just calculating sun hours per day by zip code.
Let’s figure out what is important to know about sunlight before you decide to go solar. Continue reading
Alaska might be "The Last Frontier" but it is definitely possible to tame the sunlight that pours into this state in the name of solar energy! Despite the seasonal weirdness with daylight hours, relatively low energy needs and high energy prices provide a decent environment for Alaska solar.
Sure, the local oil and gas industries won't be too fond of a movement in renewable energy, but what is better than saving the planet while living right next door to fossil fuel producers?
Read on to find out how you can make a profit by helping the environment in Alaska!
We do a lot of reviews on various solar manufacturers, installers, and service companies here because we want to give people who are interested in solar a leg up when it comes to choosing what is best for them. To continue with that mission, here is our far-ranging SolarWorld review.
SolarWorld has been the largest producer of solar panels in the U.S for more than 40 years, and although they have a global presence, they have a clear commitment to being involved with the country's economy. Most of the panels sold here, for instance, are produced on U.S. soil, and they make every effort to purchase supplies and parts from other American companies.
To be clear, SolarWorld only manufactures solar panels - they do not install the panels. Instead, they leave this work to a short list of local authorized and trained installers.Continue reading
Most of us picture a fixed rooftop installation when we think of solar panels – but did you know that there are solar panels that don’t sit still as they soak up the sun? Some photovoltaic systems are connected to something called a solar tracker, which powers ground-mounted solar panels to slowly change position so that they continuously face the sun.
Solar trackers can use a number of methods and mechanics to function, but all of them are meant to do one thing: increase energy output by moving solar panels so that they receive as much direct sunlight as possible. Some manufacturers boast that their trackers can increase energy production as much as a 45% over a fixed roof system.Continue reading
It can be a long and potentially overwhelming process to do all of the research necessary to go solar. These days, there are a wealth of installer options available if you want to go for a leased solar option. Today, we will sift through the sea of Sunnova reviews from a variety of different sources to see how they compare to the other players in the industry.Continue reading
It's our job to research the major players in the solar industry to save you some of the hours of legwork involved in researching and purchasing your new system. We will take a look at Vivint solar reviews from a variety of sources below, highlight the compliments and complaints, analyze the review trends, and see how they stack up against similar companies in their niche. Numbers are current as of the writing of this post.
Utah has enjoyed a lot of solar-friendly support over the years but recent program lapses, as well as gaps in some key incentive categories, hold this state back from being a top contender.
While it isn't leading the scoreboards, Utah solar is a solid option with a clear road to profit for anyone interested in taking the plunge.
You'll see by the end of this analysis that Utah has the capacity to put the "industry" back into its solar industry with a few additions to an otherwise solid foundation!
You want your solar panels to deliver the maximum amount of energy possible, right? But did you know how your solar panels are connected within the electrical wiring of your house makes a difference in how well they work? Connecting your solar panel in series vs parallel affects current flow and is dictated by your installation’s setup.
Warning: Science below! While we’re not going to get too deep into the details, the difference between connecting solar panels in series vs in parallel is an intermediate level solar discussion. If you’re looking for something a bit more on the beginner level, check out our articles How Do Solar Panels Work? and Everything You Need to Know About Solar Inverter Types.
OK, now that the disclaimer is out of the way, we’re ready!
