Nevada Competitor Comparison: Blue Pacific Solar
Last Updated on
Determining which solar company to go with for your Reno home isn’t an easy task. Many considerations go into an in-depth solar company comparison, including ratings, reviews, products and services.
Solar Company Ratings
While the best reviews come from friends and relatives, most people don’t know someone who has worked with each of the solar companies in their area. Solar is usually a one-stop shop with no repeat business, so few (if any) solar homeowners have had solar equipment installed from more than one company.
Comparing the number of reviews to the rating can provide some insight. The ratio of good and bad reviews, recurring complaints and raves, and how companies have dealt with complaints help customers determine whether the company has recurring problems or one negative experience as an exception to the rule in their customer service track record.
Go Solar Group Ratings
As of May 14, 2021, Go Solar Group’s Nevada services have received 4.7 stars out of 26 reviews. Four of these reviews gave below five stars, and two reviewed below four stars.
The Better Business Bureau has given Go Solar Group an A rating and 2.67 stars out of five reviews. It has received accreditation from the BBB since 2014.
Blue Pacific Solar Ratings
As of May 14, 2021, Blue Pacific Solar didn’t have any Google reviews.
The Better Business Bureau has given Blue Pacific Solar an A+ rating and 2.8 stars out of five reviews. It, however, is not BBB accredited.
Solar Product Comparison
The solar industry boomed over the past several years, many new solar technologies emerged, making consumers’ understanding of all the new products and improvements more difficult. The products used also impact the price. Only comparing the price of a high-quality solar panel with a module with lower wattage and durability isn’t a fair comparison.

Pre and Post-Installation Solar Services
Services Offered By Go Solar Group
Go Solar Group handles all the steps for installing solar. We also help our customers with any questions or concerns after completing the installation.
Services Offered By Blue Pacific Solar
Since Blue Pacific Solar isn’t an installation company, they only sell the products to the customer. The customer has to install the array and make sure it’s up to code, which costs money and valuable time.
What Sets Go Solar Group Apart?
While Blue Pacific Solar offers low prices and quality equipment, it may not be the best fit for everyone.
Supporting Humanitarian Work
The humanitarian work Go Solar Group supports sets it apart from many companies. While for most helping others when making a purchase isn’t a deal-breaker, it’s worth considering. The owners started Go Solar Group after coming home from a service trip with Mothers Without Borders.
As a result of this trip, they started their own non-profit, now called 1heart1mind, and the private company solar company affiliated with the 1heart1mind entity, Go Solar Group. Together these two organizations have helped empower people in Uganda while providing independence for homeowners in America.
Because of Go Solar Group’s focus on making a positive impact, a portion of every array sold goes to 1heart1mind. These contributions help people in Uganda afford solar for their homes, which replaces toxic kerosene lamps, paraffin lanterns, and other unviable power sources.
Solar Installation as a Service Solar Service
At Go Solar Group, we want our customers to have a smooth solar experience. While it costs more to employ professionals to take care of the solar installation, it makes the process far more enjoyable for the customer, regardless of whether they could have done it on their own.
