Best Solar Installation In Silver Lakes

Trivia: Originally known as Point of Rocks, Helendale was named after the daughter of a railroad tycoon in 1897. It was called “Helen” until 1918, and the Silver Lakes community didn’t open until the 1970s.

On historic Route 66, Helendale is a beautiful place to stop between Barstow and Victorville. This area is known as Silver Lakes by the US Census, while the post office knows it as Helendale. Whatever name you decide to call it, it is just as beautiful as the rest of the Mojave Desert.

Helendale lies within the Mojave Desert which is the smallest and driest of the four American deserts. The “cold desert” climate makes Helendale a fantastic place to visit, live, and even do business. This unique climate provides around 300 days of sunshine, and just enough rainfall throughout the year—perfect for solar installation.

Silver Lakes - The Best City For Solar

Silver Lakes is known as a great area to live, and one of the best places in California for solar panel installation. The clear desert sky provides the perfect environment for solar power generation for several reasons:

The Best Climate For Solar Energy

The generous sunlight in Helendale yields enough energy in one hour to provide electricity to the entire city for a year. The predictable weather in Silver Lakes is ideal for capturing the sun’s energy. That’s where we can help! Option One Solar has been providing Mojave Desert homeowners with electrical work for over 50 years. Now, we are bringing affordable and reliable solar energy to the entire San Bernardino county.

High Electricity Rates

The Mojave Desert’s golden sunlight and unique weather creates an unmatched environment for solar energy production. Even though Helendale is known for being a “cold desert” the temperatures can still get up to 100° or more in the summer. Homeowners in Silver Lakes can pay up to 35% above the national average for their electricity. Unfortunately, that high rate is the average electricity rate for most residents in the whole Mojave Desert. The good news is that Option One Solar can help seriously reduce those bills.

The Best Investment

We offer the best solar installation options for homeowners in Silver Lakes and all across San Bernardino county. The federal solar tax credit and other incentives provide great investment savings, and the cost of solar tech just gets lower and lower each year. Solar owners in Silver Lakes typically see their solar PV systems pay for themselves in around 6 years. With a solar panel system from Option One, you establish a low fixed cost for your electricity for the entire lifetime of the panels, which just gets lower with time. Unlike your electricity bills, where you can expect a rate increase of at least 10% each year after 2021. Instead, smart homeowners invest the money from enormous electricity bills back into their homes with Option One Solar.

Silver Lakes residents can support their local economy by going with a local business that is established and available to provide support for the warranties on their solar equipment.

Trust me, I had my solar installed by another company but Option One Solar's crew were night-and day-different -- no stress and did not bother us at all.

I felt they were reasonable and trustworthy which to me is more important. They worked with me to address any concerns I had and I am happy with the work they have done. I have no problems recommending them as their work is excellent. You get what you pay for.

They were so incredibly helpful every step of the process and were flexible enough to accommodate me when I needed to make changes to the location of our ground-mount array, the configuration, and switching between financing options in the middle of the project. Really great, professional people and company.

Option One installed my system in 2015. I recently had a panel fail and it wasn't under warranty (as the mfr went out of business), but Scott stepped up and his crew took care of it for me.

Called today and spoke with one of your staff members (Esmeralda) she was very nice, patient, friendly, and most importantly very helpful in finding me exactly what I was looking for... She’s definitely the type of employee you want taking your calls.

KC (from Option One) answered most of my questions immediately, and when something came up he couldn't answer, he did the research and got back to me promptly. Off-grid vs on, battery backup alternatives, the extension of the federal subsidy were all issues he helped me with. Even over the holidays, when most offices are not so responsive, Option One was a resource I could turn to.

Knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I ask a lot of questions. Option One explained all the options, helped me calculate the requirements and the cost, and always kept me in the loop. Look no further, if you want an excellent experience for your solar project.

I thought I needed to buy more (panels) to add to My home. Option One took the time to listen to what was going on and instead of them taking Advantage of a Female and selling me more which I didn’t need they told me what I needed to do. They followed up with me and made sure I did it. Thanks Option One, you saved me from spending $35,000 that I didn’t need to.
