Which Residential Solar Company Is The Best?

by Ed Tsunoda

Whether your thinking about adding a solar component to your own energy system, or researching investing in renewable energy, it’s important to have a good understanding of how the residential solar industry lays out, which companies do what, which has the best future, and what the variables are. This article has a lot covered!

SolarCity has been far and away the most successful company, building a footprint that spans 15 states with more added regularly and the company plans to install as much as 1 gigawatt of solar next year.

Behind SolarCity are a number of large and small companies taking a variety of different strategies. SunPower uses an independent dealer network to install its panels, providing leasing and loan financing. Sunrun and Clean Power Finance provide financial leases but until recently stayed out of the installation game. NRG Energy is building a strategy that could show how utilities can get into residential solar. And that’s just scratching the surface of the companies and strategies taking shape in residential solar.

It’s far too early to say that one company or strategy has won, but understanding the landscape and where companies fit in is important
