Keep the lights on when the power goes out and use the energy you generate.
Produce your own power and protect your family against rising energy costs.
Yes, it does! Here’s how.
During our long sunny summer days, your solar panels will produce more energy than your home will consume. That excess energy is sent back to the grid, and you are given credits. You can use those credits during our short winter days when your system isn’t producing as much power.
Consider it your own solar savings account.
We’ve completed more than 2,300 solar installations totaling 70,000 solar panels since 2007. We’ve been at this for a while.
We are proud to be a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer and one of the state’s best workplaces and fastest-growing private companies. We also have 5-star Yelp reviews and a list of references who are happy to talk about their experiences with our team.
Our staff works exclusively on Northwest solar installations (we’re also your neighbors). We don’t use subcontractors or call centers. In fact, the people you speak to from our team might also be employee owners.
Since our founding in 2007, A&R Solar has installed 75,000 solar panels for 2,000 homes and business owners across Oregon and Washington.
Like the rest of eastern and central Washington, the Tri Cities enjoy a dry, sunny climate due to a powerful rain shadow effect. In fact, it’s one of the best-suited regions of the Northwest for solar power—and A&R Solar is leading the way with innovative solar installations that deliver the future of energy.
Our team focuses on quality and craftsmanship on each project, whether it’s a 5kW solar energy system for a home or a 500kW solar farm for an electrical utility. We work to empower residents of Richland, Kennewick, Pasco, and nearby cities with the latest PV solar technology like Tesla Powerwall and our deep experience and passion for the industry.
With the 26 percent federal income tax credit that benefits customers of utilities like Franklin PUD and Benton Electric, now is the perfect time to become more self sufficient through renewable energy.
Our service area includes Richland, Pasco, Kennewick, West Richland, Benton City, Badger, Burbank, Finley, Rosser, Othello, and Grandview.
Don’t see your town? No worries–we service all of Washington and Oregon.
We’ll match our reputation against anyone’s. Here’s what we promise: We’ll show up when we say we’re going to. We’ll do what we say we’re going to do. And we’ll communicate professionally and honestly should complications arise.
You will receive our “Perfect 10 Guarantee.” A&R provides 10-year warranties on your residential system’s performance, workmanship, and labor. This is on top of manufacturer’s warranties, which are typically 25-30 years.
We’re one of the Northwest’s oldest and most trusted solar installers. A&R Solar is employee-owned and operated, and our executive team and staff live and work in our communities. With no company debt, we are here for the long haul.
Your system will be designed to take advantage of current financial incentives with an eye on the future to make sure that adding new technology (like battery storage) will be as seamless as possible.
Your solar array will have them highest quality modules, inverters, and racking materials. We design our systems to last decades.
Your team consists of highly-trained professionals who are our full-time employees (not subcontractors or call centers). In fact, we have more NABCEP-certified employees than any company in the Northwest.
We never cut corners. We go above and beyond the competition to ensure the highest quality solar PV system installation.

“I had three quotes and A&R was the best choice for cost, equipment, and expertise. The workmanship and installation time of the install team was great. I also appreciated the coordination with L&I for the electrical permit and Benton REA for inspection and meter install was handled with little input from me. These were the two main reasons I decided to not do a self install, and A&R did not disappoint!”

“We love our new solar system! A&R Solar was great to work with, and everyone was extremely professional and friendly. We would highly recommend A&R Solar to all our friends and family.”
“I am very happy with the installation and every aspect of the process working with A&R Solar! The staff were all wonderful and helpful. Any questions we had were answered, and the installation process was great. We’ve been producing energy for almost two weeks now, and I love the idea of saving money and doing our part to help the environment as well.”
It’s pretty exciting to see how many homes and businesses have the potential to go solar in Richland, Washington. Better yet–all of that solar would mean a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.
