Frequently asked questions

Our customers commonly inquire about the installation process, potential cost savings, and the environmental impact of solar energy. We’ve compiled comprehensive answers to address these frequently asked questions and guide you through your solar journey.

We proudly feature Hanwha QCells. Most of these panels are manufactured in Georgia. QCELLS manufactures top quality products at a competitive price.

If you desire different panels, we can accommodate most any request.

Sunriver installs systems with micro-inverters, string inverters, and hybrid inverters (string inverters with optimizers at each panel).

A system with micro-inverters or optimizers means that each panel operates independently from all the other panels in the array. This gives the system greater efficiency, while making it easier to monitor and upgrade in the future.

Batteries can provide backup to essential loads during power outages and can also allow load shifting. Load shifting means you charge your battery when electricity is cheap and discharge it when it is expensive.
System costs vary depending on system size and installation complexity. System size depends on the amount of electricity you need, shading, panel orientation and tilt. Prices can range from $10,000 to $100,000+. We will work with you to determine what size system will generate the greatest return on your investment.
Save Money with Solar - Northern CA

Real-life solar strategy to improve your bottom-line.

Using solar energy can be a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to save money on your energy bills.

  • Net Metering: Sell excess energy your solar panels generate back to the grid. This can result in credits on your utility bill, effectively reducing your overall energy costs.
  • Energy Independence: By generating your own electricity, you become less reliant on utility companies, protecting you from rising energy costs.
  • Financing Options: Spread the cost over time, making it more affordable in the short term while still realizing long-term savings on your energy bills.



Clear and concise contract, transparent communications, and nothing unnecessary. My solar project was installed in a timely manner and as agreed upon. The monitoring app was explained to me in detail after installation and I was introduced to the service department if something were to ever arise. Looking forward to batteries in the future. I recommend Sunriver Solar.

We can’t say enough positive things about our experience with Sunriver Solar. In the beginning they were very informative in the description of the scope of work to be performed. Our questions about the installation were answered in detail. The installation crew was very knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. Twenty-six panels were installed at precise locations on the roof to maximize energy output.
Don Bodnar

Competitively priced local company was the initial draw for us. But we got much more than that. Our salesman “Pat” was great, he answered all calls and texts in a timely manner (And there were many). They worked with our roofers to coordinate schedules, and when the roofers had a last minute cancellation and could get us in a month early, Sunriver stepped up big and came out at the same time as the roofers to install racking.

From start to finish Sun River Solar was great to work with. Noah came out and took shade measurements and made sure our electrical panel was able to handle the solar system. Matt and the guys installed my all black solar panels in a day. I was truly impressed. So happy to get this figured out. Thank you Sun River for helping get away from PG&E.

Acacia Ruiz
With the current and projected increase of my PG&E bill, I knew it was time to investigate the various solar companies in our area. Following an in-depth analysis of various companies’ offerings, I found Sunriver Solar to be the most competitive. The price, the technology, and the service exceeded all of the other companies I spoke to.
Thank you Sunriver Solar.
Ron Wiesner
Sunriver solar is the best. So easy to work with Rick no pressure sales pitch. His wife Teresa is always there to help and answer questions. The crew that did the installation were very polite and told us what they were doing along the way. This company is very professional. I highly recommend Sunriver Solar
Kim Neill

We chose Sunriver Solar as our Solar installer largely based on Rick Kooi’s detailed and professional presentation, though our first Contact was Sean Marquez who, for a youngish man made a strong first impression on the phone in setting the appointment. Rick knows solar. He understood what we wanted and his proposal was a perfect fit for us.
