Premo Solar

Creating Energy Independence and a Bright Sustainable Future to Families and Businesses in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties

OUR MISSION is to make it easy for home and business owners to achieve energy independence by selling renewable energy at prices below utility rates.  While the power companies continue to raise rates, Premo Solar strongly believes in offering customers a more practical option through solar energy.  We want you to save money while helping to create a cleaner tomorrow for future generations.

Premo Solar was founded on the realization that solar is now as essential to your home or business as the roof over your head. With your roof being the most logical place to install solar panels every solar project needs to involve a licensed roofing contractor. Without roofing expertise your solar project is missing half of the equation!

Premo Solar is a premier supplier of solar energy solutions to residents in Monterey, Salinas, Carmel, Santa Cruz and Watsonville.  They have 13 years of solar experience under their belt and Premo Roofing has been in the roofing and waterproofing business since 1983.  Both companies will work together to provide you with a watertight roof undisturbed during the solar installation process.

Here’s why roofing experience is important for solar installation:

  • Implement best roofing installation practices for solar panels.
  • Recognize any red flags during the site inspection of a new or existing roof.
  • Answer any questions regarding the impact of traditional solar panels on the roof.
  • Install your rooftop solar panel system using techniques to prevent future roofing issues.
  • Quickly address any issues that may come up with the roof during installation of the solar panels.
  • Ensure that your roof warranty remains secure.

A solar company with roofing industry experience like Premo Solar can address all of the issues above whereas a solar company without roofing experience could mean more risk of damage to your roof and home or business.


With proper financing, solar can be a reality for almost any budget.  It’s easier and more affordable than ever to let the sun power your home.

  • Premo Solar is an authorized contractor for CaliforniaFIRST’s residential PACE (property assessed clean energy) program.  PACE loans are made possible by legislation that allows providers of finance and governments to work together to offer residential homeowners loans for energy efficient products, including solar.
  • If you have built up equity in your home, consider a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).  Easy to do and you can start the process with a call to your bank or any local bank that offered HELOCs.
  • If you are getting a new home mortgage loan the cost of buying a solar photovoltaic system could be included.

If you think solar is too expensive or out of reach for your home or business, think again!  There are many options available to finance a residential or commercial solar system.  Premo Solar can help you through the process.

Benefits of Solar – Solar is Not Just Sunshine!

Reduce your Electric Bill

Solar system savings

Installing residential solar panels could potentially reduce your electric bill by allowing you to source your own energy directly from the sun. 

Solar panels aren’t just good for the environment.  You can benefit from savings over the lifetime of the system starting on day one.  A solar system will cost money upfront but will save you money in the long term.  The average home can save between $10,000 and $30,000 over the lifetime of the system.  The savings differ by state but for example, in California your 20-year savings can total over $40,000.

Own Your Own Power

Residential solar systems allow you to source your energy from the sun and convert it to usable power that you own, 24/7, 365 days a year.  No longer will you rent power from the grid.

Tax Credits

Tax Credit

Going solar is well worth the long-term investment, especially when you take into account all the incentives you get in California:

  • Federal Solar Tax Credit:
    26% tax credit of the entire cost of your solar system through 2022
  • Property Tax Exemptions:
    Your solar energy system will be exempt from property tax assessments for years after installation.
  • Solar Sales Tax Exemptions:
    Some utility companies are offering solar rebates to help with the cost of switching to solar.
  • Solar Renewable Energy Cert.
    Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) are designed to reward people for switching to clean, renewable energy. The certificates may vary, so be sure to ask Premo Solar about specific details.
  • Net Metering for Solar:
    With net metering, you can sell any excess electricity produced by your system back to your utility company to cut down on energy costs.

Product Warranty

Built to last

A product warranty is there to assure you that the solar panels you buy will operate without issues.  With the right warranty your solar panels will be repaired or replaced without costing you a cent. Premo Solar warranty includes 25 years on the equipment and a 10-year contractor’s warranty.

Full System Ownership

Ownership of your solar system means you will enjoy all the long-term financial benefits as well as the abundant energy your system produces.  Purchasing the solar system as opposed to leasing is your best option.  Purchasing allows you to maximize the financial benefits of the system rather than just the environmental benefits.  It assures you are eligible to reduce your federal and state tax liability through tax credits and will substantially increase the market value of your home.

Home Value Increase

Home Value

Did you know that a solar system increases the value of your home?

  • On average, solar panels add $20 of value for every $1 you save on your electric bill.
  • Homes with a solar system sell 20% faster for 17% more.

On-Line Monitoring

Remote monitoring

Just like a new car, your solar system is smart and online solar monitoring gives you a dashboard at your fingertips on your mobile or desktop devise.  At the click of a button, you can track your energy production, monitor your system’s health and share the data.  Premo Solar will constantly monitor the system as well.  We can see if there is any debris, shading, etc. that is interrupting your energy production and we do monthly and yearly analysis of your system to make sure you remain on track.

At Premo Solar we have complete confidence in every solar system we install.  With the online monitoring system, you can have peace of mind knowing that you can have updates on your system in real time.
