Pink Energy services

Once you express interest, a Pink Energy consultant visits your home for an on-site audit.

  • Nest Thermostat
  • LED lightbulbs
  • Smart power strips

  • Hot water temperature card
  • Hot water heater blanket

Pink Energy costs

Like most solar companies, Pink Energy doesn’t publicly disclose average or starting costs. This is because prices vary based on location, current power usage and other factors. For the most accurate cost estimate, contact the company for a free quote.

Quotes for solar energy system installation costs include the panels, batteries, inverters, wiring, conduit, mounting racks and mounting hardware. The Pink Energy team also handles system design and filing of the required local permits.

Pink Energy offers discounts for military personnel and veterans.

Pink Energy financing options

At the time of publishing, Pink Energy customers can pay for panel systems upfront or through a third-party financing program. For qualified customers, 100% financing is available with zero down payment and no prepayment penalty. Those who would rather pay for their system outright can take advantage of home equity loan programs, which may include tax-deductible interest. Pink Energy does not offer a solar leasing program.

Original review: Aug. 12, 2022

In Michigan, we deal with a lot of road construction. Our roads deteriorate fast. We are used to being rerouted when small bumps become potholes so roads can be repaired. Small bumps are no big deal. My experience with this company was not without small bumps. In fact, I had a pretty big one when their install team made an error, causing my system to not perform as planned. Like the big bumps in Michigan roads, though, I watched as the departments of this company took their time to evaluate the situation, learn from it, and resolve the issue in due time. Though the process wasn't without bumps, the end result was perfect, and the company showed themselves to be honest and reliable. I couldn't be more happy with the results of my solar power system!

    We had a 10kW system with an 18kWh battery backup installed. The process was fairly smooth with only 2 glitches and both were resolved quickly to bring the entire install process up to PTO from Duke to completion about a month earlier than the estimated date. The installers were amazingly friendly and hard workers. Customer service responded to questions and issues quickly. I'm very happy with the system. if I had one suggestion/complaint it would be to work on their phone system as I was dropped in transfer a few times - but was able to get right back to the person I needed by calling back.

    Although their prices are above average compared to others locally, PHS was nationally recognized and fairly a turn key operation from signing up, permits, etc. to complete. Pleased with experience, warranty, and service so far. Feel good about deciding to be my own power source also.

    Pink Energy response

    Experience was good. ....We need someone to get back to us about the what we were promised when we bought the system. We were promised a lot more panel production than what we're getting. We were told it would get reviewed in a year and it has come and gone and still no review.

    Pink Energy response

    The salesman was very knowledgeable. The installation went as planned. It was very neat and clean job. they did not leave a mess for me to clean up. I feel like my power supplier should have been lined for inspection and meter swap out for the next week after installation. I have a system that is not working.

    Solar links down since June. NO response even after multiple calls, and emails, This is the second time the links have stopped working, and it hasn't even been a year since installation. Now we are paying 70K in monthly installments in addition to our regular electricity bill. We are now done with this defective/non-functional product and non-existent service.

    We spent a lot of money in 2018 when Pink Energy was Power Homes. We have made several calls to get help. Just this past month someone was scheduled to come out on three different occasions and no one showed up. No one called to let us know they were coming. Today we were promised someone would come and another no show. My wife called their office and was placed on hold for over an hour and a half. They assured us this time they would come on September 30, 2022. Their excuse was that they have lost a lot of their staff. Yes our fun meter has been pegged out over this experience.!!

    Terrible customers service. Always on hold for over an hour and sometime 2 or 3 hours. No one ever has an answer for me. My power bill has not shrunk yet. Making payments on a loan I was told I wouldn't do for 1 year from now. System was turned on without a actual inspection done. I have spent the last 3 months trying to get this company to make a inspection date. Then when they did no one informed me so, no one was home. The inspection failed. I was told this set up would run my home and barn and it doesn't even do 3 rooms in our home.

    We just discovered when they came out to install our panels that the system WILL NOT PERFORM like the salesmen who sold it to us said it would. When we decided to cancel, we were told that we were past the cancel date and the fact that the system does not function the WAY WE WERE TOLD IT WOULD was fault for not reading our contract. What kind of business is this? They tell you what you want to hear and have you sign a contract that isn't anywhere close to what they tell you, then tell you it's all your fault for not reading the contract. Now they say we have to pay a $9,000 cancellation fee, FOR WHAT? I'd advise you to think very carefully about doing business with this company. We are certainly regretting it.

    This company Power Home Solar/Pink Energy should be immediately shut down. They changed their name in order to avoid all of the lawsuits and bad press about scamming customers and bad products. I have 12 panels and a battery backup and my system has been inoperable for longer than it has worked. The owner and all management should be arrested and have all their assets taken to pay back the people they have harmed. I have paid for my system for 3 years and I have never reached anywhere close to what I was told the system could provide.

    I have had to take multiple days off work to sit on the phone for hours straight without reaching anyone, and when you do they apologize for the wait, claim they know of the problems and are working to fix them without ever fixing them. Someone needs to be held accountable for this. Either fix the problems and refund the money lost due to faulty products or get your trash off my roof and repay all money spent.

    Pink Energy response

    We appreciate your feedback, we are sorry to hear your negative experience thus far. Someone from our team will be reaching out to you soon. Thank you for your patience.
