    What Our Arizona Solar Customers Are Saying

    • I'm extremely satisfied with my decision to go with Dividend Solar. Their customer service has been good and super nice so far. They guide you through enrollment, get all the permits and the approvals and let you know the status each step of the way. There was also one person from the customer service who was really nice and easy to work with and answered all our questions quite promptly. I got some of my utility bills now and everything that they said was spot on so I'm happy about that. I've recommended them to a bunch of people already.

      William Buckeye, AZ

      I liked the idea of Dividend Solar (low cost and green environmental factor) so I enrolled with them. The enrollment process was very easy. It's just going to their website and signing up, which is barely any trouble at all – especially given that the website was so good. Overall, I have been very satisfied.

      Andrew Phoenix, AZ

    • We decided to look into solar energy options for two reasons. First, we were trying to increase the value of our home and second, during the summer months our traditional electricity bill can get pretty costly from running the air conditioning so we thought that it would be good to go solar. We went with Dividend Solar where our experience enrolling was very easy. We didn't have any issues.

      Jacob Tucson, AZ

      The idea of being energy independent made me decide to look into solar energy services. Enrolling was easy. The people at Dividend Solar were very friendly and easy to work with.

      Dario Maricopa, AZ

      A salesman of Dividend Solar came to my house and he was very personable and helpful. He didn't sell their product to me, it sold itself. I had really looked into other solar companies and the salesman had given me some information as well. I've already recommended them to others and a friend of mine called them yesterday.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Homeowners who choose to install solar panels in Arizona will benefit from savings on utility bills, federal tax credits, as well as Arizona's state tax credit for solar. The solar industry in Arizona is supported by the state government, which offers a $1,000 state tax credit for homeowners who go solar and own their systems directly. If you choose to own your system rather than lease it, you may receive this credit on your taxes*, enough to cover two 10-game ticket plans to the Suns this year for you and a special someone.

    Finally, like many other states, Arizona utilities have Net Metering policies which allow homeowners to be credited for extra energy fed back to the power grid. If designed optimally, a homeowner can expect to offset 100% of their current electricity use while also having some left over to sell back to the grid.

    *Dividend Solar does not provide tax or legal advice. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.

    In 2014, $624 million was spent on solar installations across the state by residents trying to save money and help the environment.

    While the cost of electricity in Arizona is below average in the U.S., the abundant sunlight more than makes up for it and our homeowners can expect to save money immediately.

    When you begin to generate your own solar power, your utility bill can drop significantly. How much you can save will depend on the size of your solar system, your electricity usage, your current utility rates, and other factors. Our team and partners can design a system for you using remote assessment tools, and can present you with a system designed specifically for your home to give you a sense or your expected solar savings.

    Working with the best solar installers in Arizona, Dividend Solar offers our customers a better, simpler way to go solar and save money on your utility bills.

    It's easy to switch to solar! We will get your solar system up and running as quickly as possible so that you can start saving money and using clean energy. Inside your home, you won't experience any changes – there's no need to change appliances or make any other alterations. Outside your home, your Dividend Solar Installer will obtain all building permits and design your system to meet your local building codes. Your Installer will arrange the electrical, building and utility inspections and be on-site to make sure that everything is up to code.

    Our mission at Dividend Solar is to make it as easy as possible for you to go solar today.

    At a high level, energy from the sun is collected by the solar panels on your roof and converted into electricity. This electricity from the panels, which are made up of of photovoltaic cells, is in "direct current" (DC) form, which needs to be converted into "alternating current" (AC) electricity that you currently use in your home. This AC/DC conversion is made by a component called an inverter, which is included with your system. The inverter then channels the usable electricity into your existing power meter, and it can then be used to power your home. When your system generates energy in excess of your home's needs, that extra power is sent back into the grid (a process called "net metering") which in turn lowers the cost of your utility bill. Clean energy + savings!

    Since the amount of power your solar system generates is a direct result of sunlight, it will produce slightly less energy when the weather is cloudy, and will not produce any energy at night. Your home will continue to be connected to your local utility grid, so that you can automatically begin to draw power from the grid whenever you need it. You won't experience any power interruptions; the switch between solar system power and the utility grid happens seamlessly, with nothing to do on your end.

    The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy has an Energy 101: Solar video you can watch to learn more about the conversion from sunlight to electricity.

    We hope so, and it's easy to find out. Simply enter your information here, and we will give you a call to get your solar journey started. Our customer-focused Installers can quickly evaluate your home's suitability for solar by examining satellite photos of your property, with no cost to understand if solar is right for you.

    The cost of a solar power system will vary depending on its size, location, your roof layout and other factors, but rooftop solar systems typically cost between $15,000 and $50,000, with the average being about $30,000 for a 6.5kW (6,500 watts) system.

    Solar energy systems are durable and built to withstand the wear & tear of outdoor conditions. Your system will operate best when it is clean and in direct sunlight, so periodic rinsing is recommended. Seasonal inspections and trimming nearby trees will ensure your system is delivering optimal energy production. In case you encounter any issues with your system's performance, Dividend Solar's Installation Partners include operations & maintenance services, a 15-year warranty on all repairs and defects, and a system performance guarantee with every EmpowerLoan as part of our service to you.

    Solar energy systems are also extremely reliable. Solar has proven to be a dependable source of energy for large office buildings, large retailers and governmental agencies, supplying large quantities of energy. Some of the largest organizations in the world have buildings powered by solar energy, including eBay, Walmart, and the US Air Force. Dividend Solar has incredibly high quality standards and partners with Installers who only use the best equipment – we build your power system to last, and stand by our quality with the system performance guarantee.

    Performance monitoring is one of the coolest parts of owning your solar energy system. Each Dividend Solar system includes a special meter that measures your system's solar power production in real time. When you visit the EmpowerPortal, you can see exactly how much electricity you have generated and you can track the production over time.

    In addition, the system performance data is also sent to our database, allowing us to proactively detect problems that may be reducing your system's performance. We consistently monitor the actual performance of your system to ensure that it is producing at least 85% of the power guaranteed by your Installer. If your system's performance falls consistently below that level, we'll send an Installer to fix the problem at no additional cost to you.

    Now is an ideal time to switch to solar. Solar power can dramatically reduce your utility bill and will protect you from rising utility rates for years to come. In addition, federal, state and local governments are offering generous rebates and incentives to go solar. The federal government offers a 30% tax credit on federal income taxes which has been extended for five years.

    Our Installers provide in-depth assistance on all required tax submission forms, which includes identifying all of the potential rebates, acquiring the relevant forms, and preparing the materials for you to sign and submit. We strive to make going solar a hassle-free experience at every stage of the process, including your tax submission.*
