Go Solar Group Vs. Blue Pacific Solar Company Ratings
While the best reviews are those from friends and relatives, most people don’t know someone that has worked with each of the solar companies in their area. Ratings and reviews help people look at the experiences of individuals that have worked with the solar company.
It allows them to see both the good and the bad and weigh them against each other. The best way to use reviews is to look at the number of reviews compared to the rating, the ratio of good and bad reviews, re-accruing complaints and raves, and how companies have dealt with complaints.
This review comparison looks at Google reviews and ratings and the Better Business Buerue rating.

Solar Product Comparison
One of the best ways to determine if a solar company is a good fit is by looking at the products that it offers. Because of the solar industry boom over the past several years, many new solar technologies have come out.
Customers looking for solar shingles or Monocrystalline solar panels want a solar company that offers these products. Companies that don’t have the products a customer wants does them no good.
The products used also impact the price. Comparing nothing but the price of a high-quality solar panel with one that has lower wattage and durability isn’t a fair comparison.

Pre and Post Solar Services
Services Offered at Go Solar Group
As a full-service company Go Solar Group handles all the steps for installing solar. We also help our customers with any questions or concerns after the installation is complete.
Services Offered at Blue Pacific Solar
Because Blue Pacific Solar is not an installation company, they only sell the products to the customer. The customer would have to install the array and make sure it is up to code, which costs money and valuable time.
One of the factors that set Go Solar Group apart from Blue Pacific Solar is its focus on a humanitarian cause. While for most this isn’t a deal-breaker, it is worth considering.
Go Solar Group started with a desire to help others. 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 solar company, 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 in America goes to 1heart1mind. These contributions help people in Uganda afford solar for their homes, which replaces toxic kerosene lamps.
