Alternate Energy for an Alternative World

Western Arizona's Largest Solar Dealer - Discount Solar has been in the solar business since 1993. In the past two decades we have sold and installed over 7,300 complete solar panel systems. We are able to offer installation on everything we sell; we also provide technical assistance for the do-it-yourselfer. Discount Solar carries a wide array of solar energy products which include solar panels, inverters, chargers, batteries, cables and more.

We are located on the west side of the great state Arizona in the town of Quartzsite, the heart of "snowbird country", about 20 miles east of the California border near the intersection of Highway 95 and Interstate 10.

Very nice place! Have everything you would need and more. Great customer service. Clay, who was very knowledgeable was very enjoyable to talk with, he even showed me pitures of his solar builds on golf carts from his personal pictures. Enjoyed stopping in. I didn't buy anything this visit, but I plan on buying from them in the future. Prices are very fair compared to online with no shipping wait times. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS BUSINESS if you need good quality solar products! Great place!!! Update: Went back a week later and bought four new 4/0 cables with lugs and heat shrinked ends they made them in a few minutes and made well. They worked perfectly and took care of an issue I was having with a solar system. I will be back and send others there way too! Thanks Discount Solar!

I was having issues with my system holding a charge. I dropped by to make an appointment and they got me in the same day. After an initial consultation we thought it may be the batteries, but they were still fine. They spent an hour troubleshooting the problem before realizing that my panel wasn't strong enough to carry me through a whole day at this time of year. Short days and low sun meant I just wasn't getting enough charge. They were able to add another panel to give me a total of 300w. The cost was pretty much the same as the battery quote. They were professional, fair, and the whole shop fell in love with Johnny my dog. When I do need new batteries this is the place I will go to. And the best part is that I was able to have lights all evening. Thank you Discount Solar, you guys are the best!

Added another 2 panels to existing system. Discount Solar's team was 100% on task. Efficient check in process. I like the fact that I could speak directly with the main installer and make sure that we both are on the same sheet of music. I'm happy I chose Discount solar!!

I can’t say enough about this place. Clay was an absolute specialist when it came to figuring out the problem with my inverter/charger on the rig. Such friendly staff to boot! I highly recommend these people. Thanks Clay! I’m the one who put in the white 2800 magnum. Everything is working perfect !!

Every time I have gone here I’ve been more than satisfied. They gave me a hard to find specialty fuse today and yesterday they made custom battery cables for me while I waited. When I called and asked if they had a particular Victron device they had it and quoted me a price $1.00 less than Amazon!

One of if not the best solar vendor and repair facilities in the southwest. Staff is super friendly and is always willing to answer questions for the diy person and if you get in over your head they are always willing to take over and fix your mistakes. Ok I know that from experience.

On our trip south from WA state to AZ, while boondocking, we turn on our inverter at night to charge our electronics. Getting up in the morning, we noticed the battery indicator light on our solar controller was flashing red, which we had never seen. (Our system is several years old, so we suspected the batteries were at the end of their life). We came into Quartzsite, AZ, stopped at Discount Solar in Quartzsite, catching them just as they were getting ready to close for the day. Discount Solar is our “go to” place for solar. A very nice man checked the controller, putting it through several tests to determine the battery “health”. For the final test he switched off a breaker, put out the big living room slide, and using the microwave we heated up water. He watched the draw on the batteries. After spending about 10 minutes watching and testing, he said our “old” AGM batteries were performing exactly as they should. He recommended we not replace them now, as it would be a waste of money. Then he said there would be NO service charge! These folks go out of their way to accommodate the needs of our RV Community with pleasantries and smiles! Thank you, Clay and THANK YOU, DISCOUNT SOLAR!! Richard and Carol Lamb
