We will beat any nationally advertised price on the same grid tie solar system offered by a competing dealer under the following conditions:
1. If you find a lower
price, it must be verifiable by one of our staff, so we request that you
provide us with the dealers contact information.
2. Due to fluctuations in the
cost and availability of various products, our price guaranty may only be
honored at the time of sale and not afterward.
3. Our price guaranty only
applies to prices which are nationally advertised via the Internet, Radio,
Newspaper, Television, Mailer etc. and must be posted by an actual dealer of
alternative energy products. The product must be able to be purchased by the
general public (companies that require you to purchase a membership, do not
4. Our price guaranty applies
only to like products and not equivalents, in other words " apples for apples "
i.e. same manufacturer, same model, same warranty, same shipping cost, new in
the box. Not refurbished or a customer returned item.
5. The nationally advertised
price must be offered by a legitimate full service business which offers live
pre and post sales support for the products that they sell. Businesses that only
offer a shopping cart for placing an order do not qualify for this offer. The
business must operate from a physical address. Individuals operating from
their home, automobile or a PO box do not meet the requirements of this offer.
6. Our price guaranty applies only to items that are new, in stock and ready for shipment from the dealers place of business.
7. Due to the extreme volatility of the current solar panel market. Until further notice our price guaranty does not apply to solar panels.
8. We do not perform installations so if
the quote that you have obtained from a competing dealer is not itemized and
includes installation, we will need to see a breakdown of the cost for materials
in order to beat the price that was offered to you for materials.
Your rebate amount may vary depending on expected system performance and will be calculated based on equipment ratings and installation factors, such as geographic location, solar module tilt angle and azimuth angle and shading. Please note that many states and or utilities will use the the AC rating of the your system's equipment and not the DC rating of your system's equipment when determining the amount of your rebate. The AC rating of your equipment is typically calculated by multiplying the PTC rated output of your solar panels by the number of solar panels multiplied by the CEC weighted efficiency of your inverter, multiplied by your system's design factor which is based on module tilt angle, azimuth angle, shading and geographic location, multiplied by the current per AC watt rebate amount. Please contact your state or utility company to determine equipment ratings and exactly how your rebate will be calculated and what your rebate amount will be. In the event that you have paid Discount Solar Supply a deposit or have paid in full for the purchase of a grid tie solar system and you are unable to secure an approval on your rebate reservation from your state or utility company’s rebate administrator, we hereby agree to issue you a full refund of your deposit or a full refund of the full payment that you made to us toward the purchase of your solar system so long as the product has not been shipped to you. In the event that you have paid in full and your solar system’s components have already been shipped to you and you are unable to secure an approval of your rebate reservation from your utility company’s rebate administrator, Discount Solar Supply hereby agrees to issue you a full refund of the full payment minus shipping costs, upon the return of the solar system’s unused, undamaged equipment so long as said equipment is returned to our warehouse within 30 days of its delivery to your site. Please note that as a courtesy, Discount Solar Supply offers free assistance to its customers in filling out their rebate applications but assumes no liability or responsibility for securing a rebate for you nor any liability or responsibility for securing any specific rebate amount. For this reason Discount Solar Supply highly recommends that you wait until you have received your rebate reservation confirmation before taking delivery of your solar system’s components. If you have paid in full for your solar system and have not yet received an approval for your rebate reservation, Discount Solar Supply will store your solar system for you at no charge until you have received your rebate reservation approval.

Solar System Performance Solar system performance is based on many factors which are completely beyond the control of Discount Solar Supply. Therefore Discount Solar Supply, its officers and its employees make absolutely no claim as to how your system will perform in your specific application. Furthermore Discount Solar Supply does not perform solar system installations and is not involved in any way in your solar system's installation and therefore disclaims any responsibility for the quality of your solar systems installation. As mentioned above solar system performance is based on many factors, one such factors which may negatively impact your solar system's performance is the availability of peak sunshine. Peak sunshine is defined as sunshine which is available during clear sky conditions between the hours of 9 AM and 3 PM. The 5 to 6 hour peak sunshine energy production examples depicted on this website are meant for estimation purposes only and may not be applicable to your specific installation, and are typical only for certain areas of Southern California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. Your site's number of peak sunshine hours and your solar system's performance will vary depending on factors such as, geographic location, the angle at which your solar panels are tilted, time of year, degree of annual cloud cover, pollutants in the air, dirt and guano (bird droppings) build up on the solar modules, time of day, solar module age and condition, the quality of your installation, obstacles to sunlight such as trees and buildings, and the direction (azimuth) that the solar modules are pointed at. Because conditions such as the level of reflectivity impacting the backside of bifacial solar panels can vary and because conditions such as your site's number of peak sunshine hours, geographic location, the angle at which your solar panels are tilted, time of year, degree of annual cloud cover, pollutants in the air, dirt and guano (bird droppings) build up on the solar modules, time of day, solar module age, obstacles to sunlight such as trees and buildings, and the direction that the solar modules are pointed at, Discount Solar Supply makes no representation as to the amount of additional power or efficiency that bifacial solar panels are capable of and makes the manufacturer's specification sheet available to you for reference purposes only. In all cases Discount Solar Supply , DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO SOLAR SYSTEM PERFORMANCE, WHETHER EXPRESSED, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Solar System Design
Discount Solar Supply uses data provided by you and or your installer as well as the best available data from Google Earth® images to determine the best layout for your solar panels. If this data is inaccurate, for example, we have been provided with inaccurate dimensions or angles of your roof or there are legally mandated restrictions or setbacks that we have not been made aware of or there are vent pipes or other obstacles that interfere with the placement of your solar panels or you or your installer has decided to modify the original layout design that we have provided you with then your installation may require additional components such as mounting brackets, wire, railing, combiner boxes, flashings, standoffs, tilt legs, etc. Discount Solar Supply is solely responsible for supplying you with the items that are identified in your quote and is not responsible for supplying you with additional components free of charge. Should your installation require additional components such as those identified above, we will make those items available to you at our normal discounted pricing.
If you are interested in having backup power during a power failure, then you must purchase a grid tie battery backup solar system that has been specially designed to utilize batteries as a backup power source. If you wish to be quoted on a grid tie battery backup solar system, please advise your Solar Home sales representative of your desire.
Also, please be aware that the installation of a battery backup grid tie solar system requires the installation of a separate, isolated electrical subpanel where your critical "emergency" circuits are installed. Normally only a select, limited number of circuits are removed from your main service panel and transferred to this separate, isolated subpanel. Although it may be electrically possible with a large enough solar system and a large enough battery bank to power all of the loads in your home, Discount Solar Supply does not recommended this practice due to the potential for rapid battery discharge and the potential for overloading your solar system's inverter and the potential for accidental back feed of the electrical grid.
If you have not prepaid for your order then payment for the products listed on the enclosed packing list/invoice is due upon shipment. You agree to pay as we specify on the invoice.

Kilowatt Hour Cost Estimates
Solar system performance is based on many factors. One such factor which may negatively impact your solar system's performance is the availability of peak sunshine. Peak sunshine is defined as sunshine which is available during clear sky conditions between the hours of 9 AM and 3 PM. The 5 hour peak sunshine energy production examples depicted on this website are meant for estimation purposes only and may not be applicable to your specific installation, and are typical only for certain areas of Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Your site's number of peak sunshine hours and your solar system's performance will vary depending on factors such as, geographic location, the angle at which your solar panels are tilted, time of year, degree of annual cloud cover, pollutants in the air, dirt and guano (bird droppings) build up on the solar modules, time of day, solar module age and condition, the quality of your installation, obstacles to sunlight such as trees and buildings, and the direction (azimuth) that the solar modules are pointed at. Your results may vary. Please read our sales policy for more information. These factors are beyond the control of Discount Solar Supply and thus Discount Solar Supply makes no representation as to how your system will perform in your specific installation. This 7 cents per kilowatt offer is dependent on the availability of a net metering policy that compensates solar users at a full retail cost of electricity rate. This 7 cents per kilowatt offer is null and void should your state, municipality or utility company change their existing net metering rules in the future so that they include net metering fees or compensates solar users at less than a full retail rate. This 7 cents per kilowatt offer is available for a limited time and is dependent upon the the availability of a contractor that charges no more than $1.30 per watt that serves your area that can complete your installation and obtain all necessary permits that will be needed to qualify for the 30% Federal tax credit before it expires. Please be aware that as we approach this deadline, the demand for installation contractors is expected to increase dramatically, so this offer may end at any time, without notice. Time is of the essence.
**Please see you accountant or tax preparer to make sure that you qualify for the 30% federal tax credit before purchasing a solar system.
