How the Freedom Forever 25-year production guarantee works
When you own solar, you’re counting on the solar system to replace the energy you need from the utility company. In a perfect world, you can count on just that. However, what happens when a system produces less power than it should? Well, in the time it takes for the issue to be resolved, the utility company is charging you for the energy you are now taking from the grid. Then you’re paying for your solar bill and your electric bill. That’s two payments!

Freedom Forever guarantees that your solar system will produce the electricity we promise it will with our 25-year production Guarantee. If it ever breaks or falls short on power generation, we reimburse you the extra money you had to pay to the utility company while your system was down. With the Freedom Forever 25-year production guarantee, you get 25 years of less-stress power from the sun, it’s that simple.
What we mean by a production guarantee
What we mean is, we guarantee that your solar system will produce a certain amount of power, every year for 25 years. How will we know how much power it produced? With many utilities, at the end of every year, you will receive a “true-up” bill from your utility company. That bill will show how much energy you generated with your system during the year. If it made less power than we said it would, you can submit a claim. Once that claim is approved, we go ahead and pay you the value of the power it didn’t generate.
In short, we guarantee your system is going to produce the amount of power we say it will.
Peace-of-mind: We monitor your system, so you don’t have to
Solar power systems are reliable. You can look forward to many years of reliable energy after going solar. The only thing that could go wrong is if your system stops producing power and you didn’t know it! With other solar companies, you often only find out your system is down when you get an unexpectedly high utility bill at the end of the month.
You don’t have to worry about that happening with Freedom Forever because we monitor your system for you. If there’s a problem, we’ll work hard to get the issue resolved. You don’t need to do anything. You never have to call us about a problem with your system, because we’ll call you!
Freedom Forever’s 25-year production guarantee puts you in charge of your energy production
We guarantee the amount of power your system will produce, the actual savings off your utility bill is up to you. To maximize your savings, you’ll want to manage how much power you use, and if you are on time-of-use (TOU) rates when you use that power.
Your solar power system delivers power to the grid during the day. The rate you get paid for that power is up to your utility company. The same goes in the evening after your system is done generating power. The utility company sets the rate that you’ll pay in the evening and night hours. Many customers in states like California pay high peak TOU rates in the evening.
To maximize your power savings under TOU rates, you’ll need to minimize your use of electricity during the peak rate hours. For example, for San Diego Gas and Electric customers, they pay peak rates in the evening, between 4 PM and 9 PM. Those customers will want to minimize their power usage during those hours.
