Compare quotes on a home solar installation from prescreened local companies.

Fill out the form below and we'll select up to three local installers to provide free home solar quotes.

No high-pressure sales.

After speaking with you about your needs, the installers will send you proposals that describe the equipment, your anticipated electricity generation, the price and estimated financial return of your home solar system.

Review the proposals at your own pace. If you decide to go forward with one of the installers, they'll send a detailed contract. But if you decide that solar isn't right for you, just know that none of our partner companies take a high-pressure sales approach.

Compare quotes from the highest quality installers.

The Solar Nerd uses a small network of installers carefully selected on experience, credentials, and reputation. National firms (like Sunrun and Vivint) are excluded due to questionable sales practices, an excessive reliance on subcontracting, or even lawsuits.

When you’re ready to start, fill out the form below.

(We hate spam and robocalls as much as you do. The Solar Nerd will only share your information with the installers we refer to you.)

This is the number of companies we’ll send your request to.



If yes, please list them here.

Your utility bill will help installers understand your annual electricity use. Upload a PDF or take a photo of your electric bill where it shows your annual kWh usage. Feel free to use a marker to black out any confidential information, such as your account number. This step is optional, but your installer will eventually need a copy of your bill.

Ask any questions or list any other requirements you have, such as your timeframe for the install.

When you click “Get my quotes”, you agree to be contacted by up to 3 home solar providers. We don't provide solar installation services ourselves, and do not make guarantees with regard to the price or work performed by any service providers you contract with. We do our best to work only with high quality providers, but you should always research any contractor you work with, and read the fine print (just like you're doing now).

How does this website make money?

The Solar Nerd earns a fee if you purchase a home solar system from one of our referred solar installers or through our EnergySage link. It’s a relatively small fee that should not add to the “soft costs” that installers bear.

In fact, we believe that our company is helping to make home solar cheaper by reducing the marketing costs for companies. Soft costs are a big part of home solar, and customer acquisition is 9% of the system cost on average! That means for a gross system cost of $20,000, a solar installer might spend $1,800 on marketing and sales to acquire you as a customer.

The Solar Nerd charges companies a lot less than that, helping to make solar cheaper for everyone.
