How does Freedom Solar work?
To get started with Freedom Solar, you can get an instant estimate on its website. Based on your property address and average electricity cost, Freedom Solar provides you with information like:
- Expected savings on energy costs
- Expected increase of your home value
- Estimated environmental impact
- Recommended number of panels
To get accurate pricing and a custom system proposal, you can request a free consultation. A member of Freedom Solar’s team meets you in person for an on-site survey. The consultant discusses:
- A potential system layout
- Costs, applicable savings and tax benefits
- Estimated length of the project
- Preferred equipment
- Financing options
After the initial consultation, you’ll receive a custom design in line with your budget, zoning restrictions, build structure and aesthetic.
Freedom Solar handles all permitting for your installation. This includes agreements for utility interconnection and applications for net metering, as well as local building and electrical permits. The team also helps prepare the documents needed for you to receive rebate incentives.
The solar panels only take one to three days to install, but the entire project from contract signing to installation lasts about 90 days.
Freedom Solar ensures that your panels operate with optimal performance by monitoring them 24/7 from its facility. Post-installation, you receive access to a web app that allows you to monitor your energy power production and costs.

The sales rep forgot to give my proposal and final papers in the email, but the installation was fine. Then, the regional manager sent me a few paperwork later on after they called end of last year. But sometimes, the app has issues. The monitoring system was going in and out on January or February. When it goes out, I don't get the correct amount of solar that was used. I get a number, but there's nothing to verify it with. Also, if I can get all the paperwork that was associated with the placement of the letters that were sent to the HOA, that would be great. Otherwise, it's good.

Thank you, you have successfully subscribed to our newsletter! Enjoy reading our tips and recommendations.
Freedom Solar Power seemed to be organized and they were. However, for a long time, I didn't hear from Freedom because the representative left the company and they may not have assigned me to another person. But the installation was flawless. The system worked with a complicated setup flawlessly after one day and we've had no downtime. The very next day after it was installed, there was a power outage on our street and I didn't even know it happened. The system is been 100% reliable and I have a good buyback program too. I also asked for a rebate of the cost it cost me to switch from my previous provider to Rhythm and they gave me the $300.
The only drawback is with the renewal with Rhythm, I can no longer have a negative bill. If I equal my entire electric use, I will not get a rebate on the surplus. It's a disincentive to add more solar. I'm going to investigate to see if there is a company that will allow me to have a net negative bill for an entire year. In which case, I could add more solar panels. But right now, I'm at the maximum with Rhythm as a company. That was a company that was recommended to me and it's been satisfactory. So, I've stayed with it.
Hi Lennard, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're proud to hear that your new SunPower system and savings are proving to meet all of your expectations. Congrats on making your own power and thank you for choosing Freedom!
Freedom Solar did not piecemeal the project. They made the panels and installed them as well as warrantied and monitored the panels. They did everything as a company. Overall, I'm quite satisfied. There were a couple of little glitches when they installed it though. They thought they could put more panels on than they could. So, that was a little disheartening. Two days ago, there was a problem with our roof, so I don't know what that's going to be involving because part of it is not adequate and will need to be repaired. That's a bit of a glitch because they inspected it before they put the solar panels on.
I had a couple of different people along the way with projects. There was the salesperson who was very helpful and there was the project manager too. The service and questions have been great. I'd call their corporate office and ask questions and they’ve gotten back to me. So, they're good. To keep track of what I’m producing, there is an app on my phone that I can see daily and monthly production. Freedom also sends me an email once a month regarding what my production is. And I can see the results through the energy provider that I've chosen.
Hi Elizabeth. We appreciate the review, and are glad we could provide you with a positive experience! We are so sorry about the installation glitch. I have escalated this with our team and they have ensured me that they are working to make this right for you. I apologize that we have dropped the ball but we will do whatever we can to improve your experience with us. Please don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if we can assist you with anything else in the meantime.
I talked to one of their sales rep and he was the best person. He gave me 95% of the detail I needed and that's why I went with Freedom Solar. Everything was perfect with the sign up process. But one problem was the tax credit. They told me I would get a tax credit but it was not working as you get a tax credit. I called the IRS myself after I find out and they told me that I would only get 500 bucks. But I was supposed to get around 8,000. So they clear the money you owe to the IRS, but it's not giving you a credit. I called the salesperson again but there was nothing he could do. But other than that, everything was good. They answered my question and the scheduling was perfect. The installation was very quick. We rushed to do the installation before the end of the year and they worked with me and gave it to me right away.
Hi Dourid. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! It sounds like our team did a great job making sure you had a smooth experience from start to finish. We're very sorry about the tax credit confusion but we're glad everything was taken care of. Congrats on going solar and thank you for choosing Freedom!
The reps at Freedom Solar I spoke with were great. My only issue is that we were told that we'd get a huge tax rebate thing and we’d get $21,000 or $23,000 back from the government after signing the contract and that is not the way it works. I texted my CPA, and he said that based on my income, I'm getting 600 bucks a year back for five years, and that our income is not high enough to facilitate that. Other than that, everybody in that company has been great. I talked to one of their guys in Austin and I really liked him. Everything he said is proven to be true.
Hi Greg. Thank you so much for your review! We strive to be transparent and put the customer first and we apologize if that wasn't the case. We are glad that you had a great experience and we're positive you'll continue to love your new SunPower system. Thank you for choosing Freedom Solar!
I had solar panels installed in June and I called the local electric company today, they said they're waiting for an CILC form to be submitted by the installer. My sales rep keeps telling me the electric Co is behind, never mentioned all the forms aren't in place. Either Trent is a liar or he doesn't know what he's doing. I'll get my corporate attorney on them anyway now.
Hello Scott, We're so sorry but we don't see you in our system. We do not operate in Arizona and there are solar companies in your area that we are sometimes confused with. We always want to do right by our customers and help however we can!
This company is advertising on Instagram a program for their power wall however when you contact the company directly they tell you that’s only for existing customers. The ad doesn’t say this so this is false advertising. This is a terrible company. My advice is to stay away from this company.
Hello Dennis, we are sorry to hear that you disliked our advertising. We hope to one day be able to service all solar owners with the Powerwall and are sorry that we could not assist you right now.
I looked at several companies and Freedom Solar seemed to be the better product. The signup process was easy and so was the installation. So far, going solar has been good. There's been a difference in my electricity bill.
Hi Kelly, congrats on going solar! Thanks so much for sharing feedback about your experience with us. We are proud to hear that you're enjoying your new SunPower system and savings. Congrats on making your own power and thank you for choosing Freedom!
The sales guy seemed very honest compared to the rest of the companies that I had sat through in these little interviews with. The only thing we pay for is to be on the grid which is $26. My husband is satisfied.
Hi Lisa, thank you so much for your review! It sounds like the sales team lived up to your expectations and gave you all the information you needed to make your decision. We're happy to hear that the team made the process nice and easy. Congratulations on going solar and thank you for choosing Freedom!
We had a sales guy who came out and presented Freedom Solar to us. They did a great job and we're very satisfied.
Hi Mary, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're so happy to hear that our sales team did such a great job making sure that your solar experience was a positive one. Thank you for choosing Freedom and congrats on going solar!
