    Solar Solution: what do users think?


    Nour Chaaban: Worked with Charlie Pol on a solar study which was an extremely enjoyable experience and very professional. Despite making the rounds on all solar companies in the DMV area and everyone refusing to support, Charlie and Solar Solution DC provided the support we needed at no cost! I look forward to working closely with them again on any future projects and I recommend anyone interested in solar energy and sustainability to reach out and work with them as well, you will not regret it and they will make sure you are a satisfied customer! Thank you, Charlie and the team for all the effort you put it!

    Walter Eubanks: Solar Solutions Review Solar Solutions did an excellent job setting up my solar panel system. First, they installed 28 solar panels on my house and garage in less than a day. Second, I decided to buy my Panels, so they pointed me to a low interest rate credit union where I got a loan to buy the panels and arranged for me to sell the excess electric monthly on the renewable electricity market. Those payments are deposited in my bank account. 0verall, I am very pleased with Solar Solutions.

    John Cochran: Robert Taylor with Solar Solution worked hard to get our business, beating the prices from competing companies. Solar Solution then delivered a "turn key" system as promised, installing solar panels on the roof of our DC row house and handling all the paperwork, etc., with Pepco. The installation crew did a great job, working efficiently and quietly, and the electrician, who handles multiple jobs each day, stayed late at our property to connect everything, ensuring that they met their promise to have everything installed in one day. I do recommend them highly. The entire process was easy and drama-free.
    Response: Thank you so much for your positive feedback! We really do strive to be best company and very glad we could deliver based on expectations.

    Andrelia James: Anthony is polite, knowledgeable and very professional. He had to make a second trip because my box is inside my home, and did so willingly. He epitomizes the type of employee Solar Solutions would want representing them. I applaud him and you for employing him. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to rate his outstanding performance.

    Leda K. Bloomfield: We got solar in 2021 and have been very pleased. I think the easiest way to put it is that we don’t think about it much — it works just as it’s supposed to and we have eliminated our electricity bill completely. I’ve never dealt with such a seamless process. Solar solutions was incredibly transparent, communicative and responsive. They helped deal with the issues regarding our SRECs, even though it wasn’t their responsibility. Highly recommend going with them. This also pushed us to get off gas completely!
    Response: Thanks for sharing your feedback. This is the exact type of feedback we like to hear from our customers. So happy we could help you switch to Solar. We're here for anything you need in the future!

    Ned Malone: Our experience learning about and installing solar panels with Solar Solution was seamless. From the initial consultation through installation the staff at Solar Solution were patient with our many questions, informative, and helpful, and we never felt pressured to commit. We certainly recommend Solar Solution if you’re considering solar!
    Response: Thanks for the feedback Ned! Happy to have you as a customer!

    Subir Lall: The panels have been working smoothly for 6 years and I had to call them recently as my roof needed to be replaced. They promptly uninstalled the panels until the roof work was done, and then did the reinstallation and a follow up check to make sure it was working properly. The process could not have been easier. They are a wonderfully efficient and responsive company and the panels have been a great investment.
    Response: Thanks for the great feedback Subir! Glad we could provide you excellent service over the years!

    J. A. Ciardelli: Our experience with Solar Solution has been positive. Terri kept in great communication - answering many questions - along the way, and all steps of the installation went as planned. Everyone on the team has been professional, courteous, and responsive. They have delivered as agreed! Love seeing the energy generated by our panels.
    Response: Thank you so much for your positive feedback! Looking forward to serving you longterm for anything you may need!

    Bob Bourdaud'hui: Solar Solution installed my 14 panels in DC just over 10 years ago. Going solar was one of the smarter decisions that I've ever made. The system has proven to be very reliable and saved me a great deal of money in electricity bills and importantly has generated sizable annual income through the sale of SRECs. The company got me started with their SREC program in 2011 and in 2020 organized a smooth transfer to SRECTrade who took over the management of my credits.I had a couple of minor problems with inverters a few years ago and Solar Solution reacted quickly at no charge under warranty. Overall their customer service has been exemplary and I unreservedly recommend Solar Solution for solar power.
    Response: Thank you Bob for your feedback! We love to hear our customers' stories, especially experiences like this from customers who went solar with us more than 10 years ago! We will continue to serve you for anything you need into the future. We appreciate your business.

    Silvia B: I am completely happy with my decision to go solar and picking Solar Solution the company I selected. They made the entire experience painless. I mainly selected them due to recommendations from people I personally know and they were 100% right. This is a great company.
    Response: Thanks for your feedback Silvia! So glad we were able to make you a satisfied customer!

    Ipsun Solar: what do users think?


    C. Colin Brinkman: Ipsun was an easy decision out of the 3 companies from which I got quotes for solar installations. The level of detail provided in the Ipsun documents prior to signing was far superior, and support afterwards has been outstanding. As a few others have noted Ipsun’s quote may not be the lowest, but for us it was the one that provided the most value in terms of price vs capacity, and their proposal was also the most detailed and transparent. The fact the Ipsun is a B Corp was an added bonus for us as well. Installation was completed in one day, and from initial quote to PTO it took just 76 days - impressive given building supply shortages and the need to get permits and inspections between Thanksgiving and Christmas. One other standout has been that Ipsun has handled absolutely everything, from filing for permits, to coordinating and meeting with inspectors. The will even sign you up for SRECs! I could not be more pleased and would not hesitate to recommend Ipsun to anyone considering residential solar.

    Anthony Yushinsky: Ipsun Solar is a fantastic company to do business with! I could not be happier, from the initial meeting with Patrick, to the survey meeting with Humza and finally today's installation. Everyone was 100% professional, extremely cooperative and communicative! This is exactly how business should be done. The entire process took three months from the initial meeting until installation. The CEO even got involved to help move the permitting process along! The crew arrived this morning at the crack of dawn and completed the installation in a little over eight hours. Ipsun was even able to assist with very low cost financing which put us on the path to energy independence much quicker and cheaper than I ever anticipated. You can feel good about helping the planet and putting money back in your pocket. Most people think an install like this is too expensive. That couldn't be further from the truth. We are purchasing the system over time, making payments which are slightly less than our energy bill (not factoring in the inevitable increase in the cost of electricity). Thank you Ipsun Solar!!
    Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to post about your experience going solar with us Tony! We're happy to have helped make the process simple and we appreciate you sharing your review!

    LizandMike C: Ipsun did a fantastic job on the installation of a 36 panel system. They supported us and my husband's need to be involved in some of the very detailed requirements; making the the process simple and straight forward. Ipsun went above and beyond in every detail to meet our expectations. It is refreshing to have a company do what they say and support their team in satisfying the customer. The site survey team was great and allowed access to the layout/power engineer for questions. The Project Management team made sure the contract details, schedule, and installation met our needs. The installation team was on time, accurate, and doubled back to make sure we were good with everything. We recently had a neighbor ask about a roof panel so I called Ipsun and during a light rain the team came over and checked to make sure everything was OK. From the first meeting to the last phone call, this has been a great project!
    Response: That’s great to hear, you guys! Thanks for your business and for taking the time to post this. We’re proud to have provided you with good solar installation service.

    Kevin Doty: Ipsun Power has been a great company to work with. They answered all of my questions regarding purchasing a solar system, guiding me through the whole process. The install crew that came to my house was very professional, courteous, and definitely knew what they were doing. Even after the project was complete, they submitted all the paperwork needed for me to receive the Fairfax County tax exemption! Also, Ipsun has a great website where all of my documents, pictures, project schedule, receipts, etc are all in one place, which is a great resource. Plus you get access to a phone app where you can monitor your solar panel performance in real time and trend it over the long term. Overall, I have no regrets with choosing Ipsun Power!
    Response: Thanks for taking the time to review us Kevin! We appreciate your business and hope you enjoy many, many years of abundant solar energy!

    Tom Ries: Just got approval for our 9.6kW system installed by Ipsun. They were great to work with all along the way. I believe you can really measure a company you're working with by how they deal with the unexpected issues. We encountered one, not caused by Ipsun, and they worked with us to solve the problem and get us exactly what we wanted. I definitely recommend contacting them if you're interested in going solar.
    Response: Thanks for sharing about your experience Tom, glad we were able to earn your satisfaction! Enjoy your solar installation, and Happy Spring!

    Ben: From beginning to end, Ipsun Power completed their job effectively and professionally. Herve was personally very responsive and helped answer questions. I received a proposal that presented an option to own the solar system or to have a no up-front cost installation. The benefits of each were clearly laid out. Once a decision was made to install a system, all the details were handled by Ipsun Power. Installation was completed in one day. Ipsun Power handled all the paperwork and coordinated the process with PEPCO. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the work and would recommend the benefits of solar while you can get them!
    Response: Thanks for recommending us Ben! We appreciate your business and are happy your solar installation is working out well!

    Joyce G: Ipsun is highly recommended! They are very customer oriented. Everyone I worked with to make our solar installation happen — from the initial signing of the contract, drawing plans, site plan review, installation of the panels, follow up inspection, and final close out work — has been timely, kept me informed, and responsive to questions. A special thank you Humza, Andrew, Carl (and Installation Team), Abdul, Cindy, Joe, Herve, and the rest of the team. I was especially impressed with the care Carl took for his team members and their safety. Working in winter weather, through snow and sleet, is tricky and Carl’s first priority was to keep his team safe. A special thank you to Humza and Joe who patiently addressed many questions, as well as Herve who came to install a supplemental power conditioning piece of equipment to further reduce my power consumption, while reducing EMFs, and providing surge protection. If you are looking for a great solar company, Ipsun is recommended and you can stop your search. Once last piece of information in guiding your search for solar. Prior to going with Ipsun, I had another company (Vivint) provide an estimate of cost. My experience with Vivint was very negative. The representative could not answer some of the questions I asked and seemed evasive when I questioned some of the information (such as local tax rebates and incentives) he provided that I knew to be inaccurate. Additionally, once I indicated I was comparing companies and I was not going to sign the contract that day, the meeting with Vivint, turned sour (I was told that I was wasting his time). *I am so glad that Ipsun had a different approach (Very positive) and was the opposite of my experience with Vivint (Very negative).* Also, my neighbor used Vivint and had a negative experience with getting the system on-line - it took months of work to finally get it on-line after the installation of the solar panels. Beware of Vivint.
    Response: Hi there Joyce! Thanks for taking the time to share such a detailed review. We are so glad our staff members were able to provide you with an outstanding experience. You’re not alone in disliking other firms’ pressure tactics, unfortunately we hear that plenty, and we’re proud to offer an approach that we think respects the customer’s desire to take the time to consider an important purchase and understand how their solar proposal yields benefits even beyond the value of the energy. Cheers!

    Phyllis Van Houten: Above and beyond: this phrase could have been created with Ipsun in mind. Working through my solar installation felt as though a dear friend (or a bunch of them!) took me by the hand and led me gently through it. Each aspect was thoroughly described and explained. I felt confident making decisions with the depth of knowledge provided - never with the hint of superiority or exasperation that is so common. Everyone at Ipsun seems to be downright excited to teach the entire solar process. The speedy replies to emails were breathtaking. Every question I had along the way was patiently answered. When the power company balked at the number of panels to be installed, they quickly handled it, explaining the necessity for it (relatives moving in). They even started to help me find financing as part of their services (though I took care of it). Installation was quick (~2 days) and masterful. AND for the first time ever, I did not have to clean up after workers!!! I am so proud to have a spectacular solar array providing my power. I count myself lucky to have had this experience with Ipsun Solar.
    Response: Thank you for your kind words. It’s very much appreciated. Glad you liked our work

    Sean DuBois: My solar project was completed last October and has been running smoothly, providing lots of clean energy! Working with Ipsun was very easy, they handled all the permitting, HOA applications, and of course every aspect of design and installation. They have always been responsive to my questions, before and after job complete. I highly recommend this company, in addition to great service, they had the best rates I could find as well.
    Response: It's great to hear you're happy with your experience Sean! Thanks for your business and for taking the tie to post, we appreciate it. Happy Spring!

    Edward Winant: The crew at IPSun Power were great to work with, making the whole process easy. It started when they came out to the house to discuss the project. They started work on a proposal, and came out again to photograph the roof and finalize the design. Gave me a number of options for size and financing, handled all the permits and paperwork, and walked me through the whole procedure. Installation was quick and professional, took about a day and a half. Everyone on their team was friendly and professional. I would recommend them to anyone in the DMV area!
    Response: Thanks for sharing your experience Edward! We really appreciate you took the time to post this review.

    Revolution Solar: what do users think?


    Eric: Had a great experience working with Mr. Young. They communicated promptly and openly while setting up the contract. They installed it beautifully, I love that they didn't leave space on the sides and made a small slit for the vent. After installation, they were still happy to answer questions and help me make the most use of the solar system and SRECs. Highly recommend these guys.

    Dan McCarron: I had a great experience with Revolution Solar. From beginning to end, it was a seamless process that was much quicker than I had expected. I believe the whole process was only about 2 months to get the panels installed and generating clean energy. They are a great family owned and operated company - and more importantly, honest. They will do a sun study to verify if solar is actually worth pursuing. Once verified, they help you identify the appropriate amount of panels to install to get the best bang for your buck. They also help you get your roof repaired prior to the panels being installed. The installation only took one day and before I knew it, we were producing our own energy. I highly recommend Revolution Solar.

    Danielle Hunt: I had a great experience getting solar installed with Revolution Solar. Ben walked me through everything in advance and made sure that everything went well on install day and beyond. Thanks!!!

    Peter Grimm: I contacted Revolution Solar late last year and asked if it was still possible to install a system before the end of the year, Matt said yes and they did it! It's not only installing the panels, there's a process to navigate and Matt and Revolution know how: historic district review, permit processing coordination with PEPCO and handing off to the installers, it was all seamless and relatively painless, and very competitive. Revolution Solar gets five stars from me!

    Matthew Griffin: Our POC was easy to work with. The installation team did a great job and was very friendly. It has been almost 2 years and the customer support has been phenomenal. Had some roofing issues and needed some panels temporarily removed; they were super friendly in working with us to accommodate our needs to get the roof repairs done.

    Chris Osborn: Matt and team are phenomenal. Even after project completion, he and the team are responsive, and communicative. I originally had another solar panel company planning to do my project, but due to the complexity of the project they weren't able to complete it. This same concern did not pose an issue for Matt's company. I highly recommend.

    Louise Gray: I am satisfied with my solar panels. The paperwork process was easy, the grant was a blessing and Matt was very helpful, patient and professional. Solar Solution has a great team that gets the job done!

    Donna Deaton: I am so glad I found Revolution Solar for my solar project. From my first phone call and meeting to the installation and hook-up, the team was superb. They coordinated everything: the design, the city permits the inspection and the software that allows me to see how much power my house is generating. I feel good about saving both money and the environment. I've enthusiastically recommended Revolution Solar to friends and neighbors.

    kana summers: Buying solar panels was the best thing I could have done. It has saved me hundreds of dollars on my electric bill. I would recommend that everyone take advantage of Revolution Solar They are very professional and extremely helpful You will not regret it. Thanks, Matt and Erving you are the best🌟

    Jimmy Kukral: Great company that was very easy to work with. They explained everything to me very thoroughly and were very responsive to my many questions. They even helped me after the install to get everything set up correctly with the power company so I could actually get the credits. Would recommend.

    City Renewables: what do users think?


    Elizabeth Harris: The city renewable team was inside and outside of my house ~ careful, professional and efficient. Working with Ben Colbert has been such a pleasure. I credit him with a great deal of patience and understanding. He has an unlimited knowledge of his product and has been an excellent teacher. We are now looking into a system for my son’s house! So looking forward to working with Ben and his team again. ##perfectjob

    Phoebe Koenigsberg: Ben was really great to work with, and we really appreciated his expertise and passion for solar energy. City Renewables made the process smooth sailing, and DC has great incentives for investing in solar. We are very happy with our solar energy!

    KT B.: I am very pleased with my change to solar powered energy! I would highly recommend that anyone considering going solar do so with City Renewables because they made it simple, easy and continued to be available to answer any of my questions or concerns as a good business should do. It also was a fast process from installation to operational results! Going green and solar is my way of helping the world I am living in!

    Josh Saltzman: Ben and his team did an amazing job. Not only did they give us a great price on our solar roof, but they got it done fast and professionally. We couldn't be happier with the results.

    Whitney Martin: So happy we went solar. City Renewables made it so easy. It was essentially planned and paid for us. You just need to want to do what’s right for the environment (or just save money on energy) and they will help you do it all. Cannot say enough good things! Thank you, Ben!!

    Kamuzu Saunders: City Renewables was both insightful & helpful from start to finish of our project. We’ve now had our solar panels for 1 year and the SRECs generated are in-line with was was foreshadowed during the design! The team was responsive after installation. Ben & the team at City Renewables are the best.

    Theron Taggart: After researching and meeting with over seven firms, we selected City Renewables on the basis of quality, response, pricing, and customer service. From day one, we felt like family. We received quick responses to all questions or issues. The installation team was simply the best! They knew everything about the system and found creative ways to improve our solar system. Since installation, nothing has changed. Ben continues to be friendly and responsive and has helped us through the permitting process. A truly trusted provider!
    Response: Theron!!!! This is so awesome!! I really appreciate it, and it really does mean the world to me that you enjoy the solar experience.

    Tom Clark: Ben and the team at City Renewables installed solar panels on our roof in DC and were awesome to work with. They were quick, responsive, and thorough - and Ben did an amazing job managing the project. We're so happy we went solar with City Renewables!

    Maria Dumpert: Very informative and excellent service! If you're looking to go solar, I highly recommend you talk with Ben at City Renewables. He will present you with a range of financing options; answer all your questions about the technology, tax and credit incentives, permitting, and more; and connect you with a good roofer, if needed. The timelines were clearly outlined and delivery on them was as promised. Very happy that we chose City Renewables for our solar roof! As you can see below, it looks great :-)

    Eric Anthony: City Renewables helped me get solar panels last September. Ben got the panels installed faster than other companies and was very easy to work with.

    Sol Systems: what do users think?


    Lew Sanford: Sol Systems rarely makes the effort to respond to small solar system owners. After I resolved the technical corrections to support accurate communications of my readings to Sol Systems I requested a correction to my last 4 quarters of SREC payments. I have done this four times since I installed a large system. Getting action has taken weeks requiring the customer to do all the legwork. This is not a customer oriented firm.

    Ruben Gavilan: Is this company even operating anymore? None of their numbers, extensions, or attempts to get in contact with them will be met with any answers. Also in their documentation, they are saying they want 5% of each SREC Sale, + 5$ per sale... at current prices you are looking at a ~15% fee per SREC sold. Seems ridiculous, way higher than SRECTrade, which is at 7%

    Jennifer Stephens: The good: The team was responsive to inquiries, requests for support, and additional information. The install team was incredibly knowledgeable, courteous, quick, and made sure that the work done on the house would be done safely and last. Only one message in the 16 months we engaged them was not responded to—how to make monthly payments immediately after installation. Warning: Do not assume that the system will be zero cost to you. In the year I've had my solar panels, only three bills have been lower than average. Further, my account has produced only 1 SREC. I did get $5k in tax savings but will end up paying for most of the cost of the panels even if I sell the house (unless I choose not to pay). Oh, and don't expect any notifications about paying your bill in advance. I asked and received no response until 4 days before the $3k lump sum first payment was due. The bad: The process takes forever--six months to install and an additional three months to register to be eligible for SREC payments. I fully understand COVID and issues with a neighbor's roof causing delays. But it took a month for inspections and financing to wrap and an additional three months for the SREC contract to be filed. Finally, there's no correspondence about your initial bill (min was about $3k) until a few days before it is due. I was not given access to my loan account until I reached out to gain it and there's no way to pay your bill online.

    Tom Wyrick: I've been using Sol Systems ever since getting my solar panels installed in Maryland about 4 years ago. It's true that SREC values plummeted and became more of an exercise in reporting power generation each month in return for a check in a few months of maybe $10-20. But that's not Sol System's fault. That's just the state of the marketplace, where many large solar installations happened and far more SRECs were generated than the government program budgeted for. I will say, Sol Systems finally transitioned to direct depositing payments into a checking account, vs always mailing out paper checks. That helps with any issues of checks lost in the mail and what-not. And at least in Maryland, they did finally approve some more money going towards the program that adds value to SRECs. It isn't paying what it once did, but my last check was for close to $90. Truthfully, I'm not a big proponent of the whole SREC thing anyway. It's obviously financially beneficial for me as a solar panel owner if they're paying well. But in the overall sense, this is just an artificial construct where they're demanding the utility companies either produce more energy in "Green" ways, or they force them to buy these SRECs as compensation for not hitting the required percentages. Effectively, that just means everyone's electricity costs go up to cover it. Solar should be cost-justifying itself without the need for all of this. (If it's not, it's probably because your installer/dealer overcharged you for what you bought in the first place!)
    Response: Hi Tom. Thank you for your review, and choosing to work with Sol Systems. We value your business, and hope to keep doing what we can to maximize value for you. Please reach out to us directly any time if you have any questions about your account. - Best regards, the Sol Systems Team

    Andrew Zimdahl: My company has worked with Sol Systems for several years. Few others, if any, have the depth of expertise in the DC SREC market. The team is very friendly and I'm excited to see the larger scale solar projects they're developing these days.

    Daniel Austera: *Update - As of November, we sold the house that was generating SRECs, but at that point, SREC values had plummeted so low, that we weren't even making $20 a year, any longer. It is pretty much a complete waste of time at this point. I am incredibly disappointed in my experiences with Sol System. Right now, SRECs are a joke anyway. You are lucky if you make $30 off of an SREC, that takes 2-3 months to even generate. When I first became a Solar Customer, I was told that if that happened, I would have the option of setting a minimum price that we would accept our SRECs be sold for. I've now been told that they don't offer that, and that I just need to deal with the fact that my SRECs are worthless now. In addition in the year and a half I've been their customer, I've had multiple issues with missing checks that never arrived, as well as one that took 3 weeks to be mailed after it was printed. I've also had an issue with them not give me credit for all my SRECs, which they still haven't resolved. The customer service is awful too. Takes days to get a response, and even then, the responses normally are not helpful. SOL is a "this is the way we do it, and that's that" kind of business. Very frustrating when you have an issue, because they will never admit there is an issue, and won't flex a single finger trying to help resolve anything.
    Response: Mr. Austera, Thank you for your feedback about Sol Systems, as we are always looking for ways to improve our customers’ experience. It is unfortunate that you have had a less than satisfactory experience and we hope we can work together to resolve any further issues. We have tried contacting you to no avail and hope you will reach out via the contact information that we have provided. -The Sol Systems Team

    Tobin Booth: Sol Systems is the well known get-it-done solar finance crew!

    Monte Horwitz: Exceptional service!

    Ipsun Solar: what do users think?


    oohhbehave: Great company, spreading solar adoption in NOVA. They were knowledgeable, professional and not pushy at all. They respected our time and didn't do the gimmicky sales thing. Reasonably priced and they partner with Clean Energy Credit Union to provide financing, which is great. Installation team was fantastic, respectful of our property and very professional. Installed all 28 panels in 1 day, amazing! We've had the system operating for about 4 months now, has been humming along making clean, renewable energy without a hiccup. Thanks, Ipsun!
    Response: So great to hear! Thanks so much for your kind words, we appreciate that you chose us!

    Michael Cauldwell: I installed a whole house solar system (44 panels) in a house we had just built. I received quotes from 5 solar companies. Ipsun’s price was very competitive and the sales person, Patrick, was incredibly helpful. Just a heads under, the entire process from paying the down payment to passing the inspection and going live took about 4 months. So, it isn’t fast. But Ipsun kept me informed on the status every step of the way. It too early to tell how much energy the panels are producing. All in all, I highly recommend Ipsun.
    Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Michael! We love hearing that you had a great experience working with Patrick and that you felt well informed. We strive to make the process easy and transparent and we're so pleased that you are happy! Please stay in touch and let us know how it's going :)

    Michael Fratantoni: Ipsun designed and installed our solar system last year. We became fully operational in November. The system has worked even better than expected thus far, with an even larger drop in our electric bills than we had expected. The team at Ipsun has been a pleasure to work with, including post installation, with a quick repair of a malfunctioning inverter. We would highly recommend going solar and doing so with Ipsun!

    Travis Kallman: I just wanted to leave a quick review and say that Ipsun has been great to work with. From the very beginning, they were communicative and walked me through every step. Although COVID made everything a bit slower and more difficult, I basically got to sit back and let them take care of everything, which they did. When the time came for the install, the team was very quick, professional, and did a clean job, which looks great. I would not hesitate to recommend Ipsun and I am looking forward to cranking out the kilowatts.

    Geoff Grubbs: IPSUN SOLAR is absolutely great. They worked with me for a no-cost contract and then followed through with an excellent design and flawless execution, including installation. They did a great job with all the regulatory and permiting requirements, including resolving a particular tricky issue with the power company. Would definitely use them again. Highly recommended!
    Response: Thanks so much Geoff! We're glad that we could help work through the process and make it easy. We are so appreciative that you chose us to install your solar project!

    Adam Carpenter: Ipsun did a great job designing and installing my solar panels. Like any large construction project, it's going to be complicated and there may be some challenges, but they did a great job making everything right and I look forward to continuing to work with them throughout my solar system's lifetime!

    Joe Rovansek: Was having an issue with productivity reports and requested assistance. James called yesterday to setup an appointment. Abdul and Melvin arrived at the time agreed. They were very professional and walked me through the process they would follow in correcting the problem. As they were running their checks it appeared that 2 panels were off line. They identified the panels and found a short. They fixed it and made sure the system was working as designed. Before leaving they briefed me on the issue, showed me the shorted wire and the connection. I really appreciated them coming out to fix the issue and their professionalism. They are a credit to IPSUN and I would highly recommend them and IPSUN for solar needs. Thanks for your continued great service!

    Bill Larme: I was very pleased with the original installation of our roof top solar panels three years ago by Ipsun. It was quick, efficient and there have no problems. Just recently I had an issue with the Wi-Fi connection to the monitoring system and contacted Patrick Cavanaugh, our sales representative. Since none of the service reps were available the next day, he offered to come out and promptly solved the problem. Excellent service and much appreciated!
    Response: This is great to hear, thank you Bill! So glad you had a great experience, and we will definitely make sure to pass this on to Patrick!

    John Karl: From start to finish the process went seamlessly. The entire team at IPSUN was competent and professional. They answered all my questions during the planning stages and the documents they prepared made it easy to understand. The installation team arrived on time and finished my system in three days. IPSUN took care of all the inspection requirements and interfaced with Dominion Energy. IPSUN was the wise choice and I recommend them without reservation.
    Response: This is so nice to hear, John. Thank you for choosing us to install your solar energy system!

    Isaac P: IPSUN customer service and communication have been stellar throughout the sales and installation process, despite several small technical issues, which they quickly resolved. Josh Butler, in particular, was very responsive and helpful.
    Response: It's so great to hear that your solar journey was a good one, Isaac--thank you for this nice review! We'll let Josh know you mentioned his helpfulness. We really appreciate the feedback!

    Solar United Neighbors: what do users think?


    Craig Latimer: I've maintained a membership with this organization for approximately one year and find them credible. Their mission to assist 30 million homeowners achieve energy freedom through access to credible, affordable PV system providers is without parallel.

    Paul Meyer: Awesome organization. Non-profit, un biased organization to help you get lower pricing with the best solar installers in the USA. They are only there to help so that more people use solar. Remember you get a 30% tax deduction on all solar purchases:) Couldn't recommend them more!

    Claudia Liévano: Highly recommended. Non-profit helping everyone build a new energy system and rooftop solar. They point you in the right direction to save time, money and get the highest quality solar. I would have given the 6 stars if possible. After installing solar I have saved money, reduced pollution, reduced dependance on 3rd parties and feel great!

    EDGE Energy: what do users think?


    Don Hirsch: I recently had EDGE Energy install SunPower solar panels and SunVault backup battery at our home. They did a fantastic job. We are now paying essentially nothing for electricity! Their staff was knowledge and very courteous. Did everything as promised for the proposed price. Even connected us with a broker that provides Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) which is a bonus that we did not expect. Highly recommend them!

    Glenn Fischer: An Amazingly positive experience. I was working with Gloria Williams at Edge Energy. In our area they were the only provider out of the 9 I interviewed that carried the Sun Power panels that my research showed would work best for my needs. Very happy with design, permiting, installation, and utility company connection as well as the
    Response: Glenn!! MY man! We love you and your panels. Thank you for your business and the praise -- we really enjoyed working with you, and just let us know when you're ready for battery storage!

    Irina S: Best company for duct sealing. The team was courteous and professional. My old house had leaky airducts that were sealed within hours with a very impressive new technology. They even fixed the duct in a very hard to reach place to improve the airflow and quality. I could not be happier with their job.

    Edward Miraglia: These people are the BEST. They did a lot of work under my home in 2020. Then today they came back and took care of a couple issues. Chris and Carlos did a great job. Alison from Maryland Energy grant is wonderful and very understanding. Thankyou thankyou.

    Zenola Dunmore: Edge Energy and their staff are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. The work done in my home is amazing! It was a pleasure working with Josh, Carlos, Jesus, Chris, Melanie and Dena. The work was done exactly as promised. Josh was knowledgeable very professional and patient with me, I had many questions☺️😅 but Josh explained it all reassuring me there nothing to worry about. My home now is weatherize and energy efficient. I highly recommend Edge Energy. Thanks again

    Stewart Robinette: I loved working with Edge Energy. From the beginning to the end, it was a great experience. The products, service, and warranty is all top notch. The salesperson was not pushy, answered our questions, and worked with our needs. Their different technicians were extremely knowledgeable. For example, we have a whole home generator that they needed plan for. The install was clean - the brackets don't show, the wiring is not noticable, and they took care to think about how all of this would look with the house - not just putting up stuff on the house, but rather how this would look with the house. The panels look so nice and blend in. Most importantly, it works and we are saving money - plus we have peace of mind that this company will be around, will honor its labor and parts, can be reached when we need them and respond. That is hard to find. Finally, the warranty on parts and labor is amazing, especially when you realize that these panels with their built in microinverters truly are top of the line.

    Bryan Garrett: Edge Energy used the best quality solar panels and related equipment. They did a great job of installation. Their system provides an online account that keeps track of solar production and energy usage. I have produced more energy than I use and been paid back by the energy companies for the energy I produce.

    Caroline Anderson: This is an update to my review below from 8 months ago: Since the pandemic hit and our whole fam is in the house constantly, we are using more electricity than prior to the quarantine. We decided we should increase the size of our system, and we contacted Edge to get the job done. In dealing with them a second time, I found our five-star review held up! We got outstanding customer service and products again. We are incredibly happy with our original and expanded systems and that we chose Edge both times. They communicate well, meet their deadlines, are respectful when working on/in our home, and make sure that we are happy with any work that they do for us. My original review from 2020 below: We cannot say enough good things about Tony and Edge. The whole team was fantastic and respectful to our family inside our home. They quickly installed our system (22 panels) by the end of December so that we could get our tax credit! Everything went incredibly smoothly, and they were helpful along the way with educating our family about the system. We breezed through the inspections from the power company and the county with no issues, and our system has been up and running since then. Many of our neighbors have commented on how nice it looks. As a matter of fact, some of them didn't notice for a few days because they installed it so quickly and it blends in with our roof nicely, and it is on the front of our house. When we are ready to install another system, Edge will be the ones to do it!

    Arjun Menon: I found the overall experience with Edge Energy to be pretty good. They were responsive to my setup issues and worked with me to resolve. My concerns (1 less star) are less about workmanship and more about SunPower and Edge's customer management. (#1) The product+install is expensive and premium; for that kind of money you'd expect more customer management. After the install, you don't know what's going on. You can't tell if your panels are effective, and a monthly production # doesn't mean much. The install did not position the panels exactly to design. For the price you pay, as a customer you should be given more access and information. I can at least see if the tread on my car tires are of concern and it doesn't matter if I bought a Pinto or a Tesla; with SunPower you get Zero info. (#2) SunPower software/hardware was quite unstable and absorbed a lot of my time to stay on top of the issue and correct. (#3) I tracked my production in great detail, and it underperformed by about 500 kWh. Which is something my point #1 could have seen more help on. Was there any follow up. No.

    Jim Morris: I have only the highest praise for the product quality from SunPower and the Installation, service and support from the Edge Energy team. All my research indicated SunPower was the industry leader, so it makes since they would only certify worthy companies to handle the installations and service. My 12.6kw system was installed in Jun'18, I've had a few start-up hick-ups, but Edge Energy helped me resolve over the phone or had someone out ASAP to make the repair. Even during the virus when service teams were being grounded; Edge Energy put me on a waiting list and immediately notified me when their techs could return. Finally, the techs I've spoke with are not a bunch of fly-by-night people; instead they are well educated and experienced professionals. If more stars were available, I would give them more!

    Aurora Energy, Inc: what do users think?


    Mitchell Werther: Aurora installed a 17 kw system on our roof during the summer of 2016. I started working with Aurora in the Spring of 2016. I was considering another company as well, so there were several months of questions and answers and updated proposals. I decided to use Aurora since I like the SunPower modules, the fact that Aurora was a local company that had been installing solar panels for many years, plus their excellent reviews. Aurora provided excellent communication during the entire installation phase (that took a little longer than expected, due to the excessive heat). I would like to provide extra thanks to Dustin who worked long, hot hours to make sure everything was done correctly. The only issue was the final system commissioning by SunPower, which should have been completed soon after installation but took several weeks. Aurora continued to query SunPower until the commissioning was finally completed.
    Response: We appreciate your patient during installation phase and commissioning process. Due to the extreme heat, our team worked short days and made multiple breaks. Your cooperation to allow us to start very early in the morning was appreciated. Thank you for trusting us to serve you.

    James Beavan III: We ordered a system in early April, had it installed early June. In July BGE finally finished all of their approvals and installed the net meter. Aurora was very easy to work with throughout and informative about all of the current incentives (30% Federal Tax credit, $1000 Maryland grant, SREC's). They employ their own installers and did a great job, very professional. My system has worked great so far. My July and August electric bills were negative, of course I know in the winter I will still have a big bill, but 8 months out of the year I should be break even or better.

    F. Mahjouri: Dear Fariborz, We had trouble figuring out how to put our comments on Google Plus, so we are sending you our comments (see below) so you can place them yourself. Your fans, Ron and Nancy "We are writing to praise Aurora Energy Inc. to the skies! In 2007, Aurora installed 24 solar panels on our roof. Aurora was knowledgeable, efficient, thorough — they did an excellent job. Since the panels were installed 8 years ago, we have paid only the fee for the connection to the grid and the electric company has paid us for the excess electricity that has been returned to the grid each year. We recently had a problem and the President of Aurora, Fairborz Mahjouri, was immediately on the case. He corralled all the resources and men necessary and together they solved the problem. We are constantly recommending Aurora to anyone we meet who is interested in installing solar panels. They are a great company!" Ron and Nancy Goor

    Solar Energy World: what do users think?


    Heather Jefferson: Our friend Seth Tobin recently joined the amazing company, Solar Energy World, and educated us on how we could go 100% clean energy by purchasing solar panels that face westward. The entire process—from education through installation—was easy and pain-free. Every person we dealt with was helpful, friendly, and professional. Our beautiful new panels were installed in 2 days, and we are so excited to power our entire house AND our new electric car with clean energy and never pay BGE another penny! And with the BIG tax rebate we will get next year, we plan to install energy-efficient windows throughout our 1970s house 🏡 Grateful and excited to be doing our part for the earth 🙏 Let me know if you want Seth’s contact info. He was stellar!
    Response: Heather, Thank you so much for your review & for taking the time to sit down with Seth Tobin & learn more about going solar! :) Your future is looking brighter!

    Eric Liang: I'm very happy with my solar installation from Solar Energy World. Pete B did a great job explaining and and answer all my questions. He is local and very knowledgeable. I was impressed that they knew all the local regulations unlike the other quotes I received which did not know you can't put solar panels in certain areas on the roof. I was glad the paperwork with the HOA and the state went smoothly. The installation went smoothly and it works great. The installers were great at communicating at every point that I needed. I'm glad they scheduled and finished the project before the summer so I can soak up all that summer sun in the first year. It's saving the environment, it's saving me money on electricity, and it increases my home's value. We even got some drone pictures! Thanks guys.
    Response: Hi Eric. Thanks for taking the time to leave Solar Energy World this excellent review! We're pleased that you're happy with your solar installation. Thanks for sharing the kind words about Pete. It's great that he was knowledgeable, helpful, and overall wonderful to work with. It makes us happy that the installation process was smooth and that everyone was communicative. We're pumped for you to start saving money on electricity, and we're happy to have helped you increase the value of your home. Thanks for doing the right thing for the environment!

    William Hughes: I usually over analyze everything, Jeff was knowledgeable about his product, understood what i wanted and helped educate me, so i understood how everything worked. He provided the tech manuals so i could understand all the interconnections, and provided me quotes on what i wanted, not what he wanted to sell. He also stayed in the process throughout the installation and helped out when they ran into some installation issues since this was a new model and this was the first install. He didn't ask for the final payment until everything was to my satisfaction. And he gave me some great drone pics of the finished installation
    Response: William, thanks for the wonderful review! It's excellent that Jeff was so knowledgeable, informative, and helpful throughout your transition to solar. We're pleased that you felt comfortable and informed throughout the process, and it's great that our team ensured that you were satisfied. From the entire Solar Energy World team, thanks for going solar, and we wish you many sunny days ahead!

    dudiblah: I was given the regular first timer treatment, given a quote and why I should choose them over the vast competition. They however have a price match guarantee, give them a proposal and they will match it assuming the warranties are close and the system is the same or of comparable size. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS! They have a 30 year all inclusive warranty, which is top notch. The overall experience was pleasant except at first I had several issues, which have been addressed and corrected. Their crew took the time to do it correctly and didn't have electrical lines running across my roof like most other installs that you see. The install is very clean compared to most and the numbers lined up correctly (due to my research.) I would use this company again and my neighbors have even considered solar.
    Response: Thank you so much for your review & patience throughout the process! You're on your way to a brighter future! :)

    Sage Briscoe: SolarEnergyWorld made the process as easy as possible. We interviewed a few companies; the prices were all similar, but we felt comfortable with Solar Energy World, and we were not disappointed. The communication was just superb; we had a cell number so I could directly reach out to our sales person, but honestly I didn’t even need it — at every step they reached out and told us what was happening next. Very reassuring with as big a process as installing solar. The team that did the installation was great — very polite, and did a fast and clean job. And now we are making our own clean electricity!!
    Response: Hi, Sage. We appreciate the kind words and are glad we could provide you with a positive experience!

    Christian Laguerre: I spent two years researching and learning solar and one year researching and interviewing (yes, interviewing) solar installers. After reading an eye-watering number of reviews and speaking with people that had solar installed on their homes I went with Solar Energy World. Their professionalism, customer obsession, and after-install support all have concluded in a buying experience that I feel at ease recommending to anyone looking to add solar energy panels to their home. Solar Energy World worked with all my particular desires and at each step of the way suggested ideas to maximize performance while reducing the system cost. It isn't every day you find companies that are a blessing to work with, give Solar Energy World a chance to show you how they can help you accomplish your energy needs and be prepared to be impressed. Special call out to Pete B from Solar Energy World for being a fantastic resource and specialist in our solar journey. His personalized touch and attention to detail raised the bar on my expectations of what the sales process would be like.
    Response: Christian, we truly couldn't have asked for a better review - thank you, so much! We're elated to hear that the Solar Energy World team has been able to earn your confidence, trust, and business, and we're delighted to be your chosen partner in your solar energy journey. We especially appreciate your kind words about Pete. Don't hesitate to get in touch if there's anything else we can do for you - and take good care!

    Adnan Riaz: Not a good experience as others mentioned. I had a meeting with one advisor, he gave me his rough estimates and asked me to sign the contract. Then their engineers will come to do the assessment and give me better estimates, but at the time if I don't agree with those numbers I am stuck with the contract and cannot cancel it. They said I can cancel the contract within 10 days if signing but the assessment will most probably be done after 10 days so I will be stuck. Anyway I asked for another visit with a different advisor to get a second estimate/opinion. Their schedule person is very hard to contact (I am not going to mention any names here). First she replied and asked to confirm for the day and time, I replied and confirmed. After that I have not heard back from here. I sent her multiple emails but have not heard back from them. So, this gives me an idea how they will be managing the work and communication later on. I am not confident going with them based on the experience I had in scheduling the advisor visit. I hope the owner sees this review and resolves this issue.

    Alan Yu: Want to give a shout out to Brian and his crew for doing an awesome installation. His attention to detail resulted in a clean looking installation that I was very happy with! Thank you guys!
    Response: Hi, Alan. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We truly appreciate it!

    Barbara Pabotoy: This is a terrific company! Cory Monk (our Solar Analyst) was exceedingly competent in reviewing the benefits and funding aspects of the Solarize Virginia program. The work crew are professional, take great pride in their work and the safety of the work area. GREAT TEAM!
    Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Barbara. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. Cheers, Solar Energy World

    Michael Leba: Excellent, transparent and honest up front consulting. Competitive pricing, no strings attached. Professional project management governing the entire project cycle and taking care of all paperwork. Straight forward installation (3 days for 46 panels) with zero interruption of power. Knowledgeable and super friendly installation team. Update after 3 months of waiting for the system to be operational and two failed inspections by the Township: Everything above is still true, BUT: The job is done when the system is up and running. The service team of Solar Energy World proofed to be absolutely unprofessional, unable to complete a very simple inspection process. No ownership, inability to fulfil the simplest requests by the inspector, not even an attempt to fix issues. After the good start of the project, I am now deeply disappointed. The lack of professionalism, the sluggishness of their processes and back office managers is the worst I have seen in a very long time. Even now, I cannot get any commitment to a date when the system will be operational, resolution of the simplest issue takes forever(the main issue for the past two months is to order the correct stickers for the system per request of the inspector - what a joke).

    Solar Energy Services, Inc.: what do users think?


    Andrew Huppert: The bottom line is that I did a ton of research on solar installers and purchase vs. lease. Ultimately we decided to go with SES because of multiple, personal, reviews on the company from friends and people who had used them and who gave me feedback on NextDoor. All of them had done the research I had and all of them came to the same conclusion; SES was reputable, did great work, and backed up their claims with actual performance. SES worked with me for weeks leading up to the eventual installation of our system. There was design, permitting, and financing to consider. Once the permits came through, they put me on their schedule and showed up exactly when the said they would. There were multiple steps to the installation (AC work, DC work, panel conversion, interface work, cabling, and a battery installation). Through all of it, SES provided me with delivery dates and they showed up when they said they would. The multiple teams (electricians and installers) that were here were made up of workers I wound up chatting with and wanted to be around; they were clean in their work and in their manners. There was one problem that came up that turned out to be a misaligned cable that must've jiggled loose from the manufacturer (not their fault), but they sent someone out to my house at 6:45am to get it working again. I can't say enough positive things about dealing with them. Take a look at the interface and inverter installation on the side of my house; if you know anything about cable management, you can see that this is artwork that they performed. They even took steps to make sure that all of my state, local, and environmental credit applications were completed and filed properly so that I received the maximum benefit for the installation. Would I used them again? ABSOLUTELY. Would I recommend them to neighbors; WITHOUT QUESTION.
    Response: Andrew, Thank you for taking the time to share such a detailed review. As a family owned business with decades of connection to the communities we serve, we take customer satisfaction very seriously. It is our goal to delight every customer. It is a tall order, but one we pursue with vigor. Thank you for your business and your advocacy! SES

    NerdsMakeMedia: I wish zero stars was a possible rating. WARNING: NEVER hire this company for anything. Solar Energy Services never finished our reinstall and repair job, they charged us $465 (without advance warning) for an estimate which was ridiculously inaccurate in predicting the job. In the end - they attempted to charge us more than double the amount of their contractual estimate (even though the job was NOT complete!), and they tried to blame various problems with their work on us, the homeowners. After a year of absurd back & forth negotiations, we very grudgingly settled, simply because we couldn't tolerate reading another one of their nauseating, selfish, and petty excuses. Since then, a competent crew from KANE SOLAR, LLC finished the job & now our system is working great. An experienced solar installer was dumbfounded by the shabby work done by Solar Energy Services - wires not connected & improper shielding on bare wires. Solar Energy Services didn't care if our system worked, they cared about money and protecting their reputation only. The image shows our new roof after their crew crawled on it with heavy boots on a 95 F summer day. I'm told roofers don't ever use heavy boots. They advertise 40 years of experience? That seems impossible. The other 2 photos show poor wiring as discovered by KANE. To quote the expert who had to fix Solar Energy Services work: "They need more training especially about electrical wiring." Aug. 18 update: TYPICALLY, Solar Energy Services wants the last word with their response below. Their expression of concern for our experience comes very late; there was no such sentiment during settlement negotiations. They also attempted to have us sign a non-disparagement agreement, which we declined. I added this review (this is Richard Hall, not Simone Fary) after I learned how badly Solar Energy Services botched the job - which I could not learn until someone else came in to fix the problems. Once I learned this, I realized we paid more in the settlement than we should have. Want to make this right SES team? Refund our settlement money.
    Response: Thank you for the feedback, Ms. Fary. While your post is definitely not the type of results/feedback we aspire to on a daily basis, we do always appreciate hearing from everyone as we want all feedback to be as genuine, objective and factual, as possible. As we have conveyed in our settlement with you, the circumstances for this work effort were very unique. While SES did not design or install this solar system, we agreed to re-install it after a roof replacement was done by another company. The system was originally removed by another company and, for whatever reason, they declined to do the re-installation work. From there, SES was engaged by you for the re-installation work, which occurred in the early summer of 2020. Despite working on-the-fly to overcome real-time challenges of working in the field during the onset of the Covid pandemic, SES took responsibility for our personnel challenges, some of which admittedly impacted the timely completion of this work for you. That being said, the re-installation work was completed for your home's solar system. In the process of re-installation, SES also provided warranty support for you at no charge even though the inoperable equipment was originally installed by another contractor and removed by yet another contractor. This warranty support and subsequent repair work was excluded from the contract scope, but SES provided substantial warranty support with the manufacturer as a courtesy, for no additional charge. From there, subsequent manufacturer warranty work was requested by you, to which we advised it was out of the scope of the agreement and would be, therefore, be billable to you as the client, which you deemed unacceptable and that disconnect then became the basis for our dispute (and this 1-star review). To note in writing on this forum: the statement, by you, that our bill was more than double the estimate we provided is simply and unequivocally factually false. At this point, both parties agreed to mediate the disagreement and SES agreed to make significant financial concessions to accommodate and to allow you, as the customer, to reserve funds to seek another contractor. Including the original installer, this would be the fourth contractor engaged for your solar system. Our settlement occurred months ago in a respectful and businesslike manner, and it is now unclear to SES what has changed to prompt such a disparaging review of our organization as we have taken responsibility for our part in the overall end result...though we are now happy to know that you were ultimately successful in fully restoring your system. If there's anything else we need to discuss regarding this matter, we'd love the opportunity to do so. Bottom line: we wish you the best moving forward and genuinely want you to benefit from the main point of all of this: clean, renewable energy at a reduced cost (relative to what everyone pays an electric utility) for decades to come. -The SES Team-

    Andrew Rentschler: I worked with SES over the course of many months to get a solar installation completed on my residence. I happen to live in an HOA, and was worried about whether or not my installation would be approved. I was assured multiple times by SES that it was no concern, that I should put down my deposit, and that there was no way an HOA would stop my installation. Well, the HOA did in fact stop it, and I would be forced to go to court in order to get it approved. Rather than support me at that moment, SES worked to try to get out of the contract. While I admit that they likely had real costs they needed to recover, they decided to keep $4,000 of my deposit. I argued, but that was the best I could get back. If you are going to use SES, beware that if something goes wrong, you likely will not get your deposit back. I'd suggest looking at a different company to do business with.

    Kai Cadavid: I got my amazing solar panels by Solar Energy Services. My 10kw was commissioned in November of 2018. But the tale starts about 10 years before when I priced a similarly sized system. It was about 3 times as expensive, maybe more. This time around I priced it with SES and Tesla Solar to which I initially committed and signed a contract with. However, after a new roof was installed (after the rain/wind storms earlier in 2018), Tesla technician refused to install the panels and the contract was rescinded. They said the shingles (Certainteed, Presidencial series. Lifetime guarantee) where too thick and the installation pattern made it impossible for them to get their job done. THEN Solar Energy Services Stepped in and got my panels up. The whole process was quick and seamless. Communication was constant and all the details were taken care of for me. The electrical part was a breeze and the interconnectivity of the system got done painlessly. Then the registration with the brokers to sell my SRECS was taken care for me, even though they did not profit of that. Also, the financing was super easy as they got everything started with DCU., Lisa Walsh really gets it done and sticks to her word. The numbers are just right and the benefits are really what makes the decision to go Solar. I am available to tour my system or show the number$ that influenced my decision.

    Leon Cadavid: Installed my 10.8kW system in 2018. The process from quote to commissioning and sale of my SRECS was easy and went as smooth as it can be expected. They did a clean job and the communication was seemless. They set up my financing with DCU, and the brokerage of my SRECS as well. Lisa the sales person was quick and personable. Would use them again and recommend them to all my friends.
    Response: We're so glad you're so happy with all facets of your solar project, Leon - we really couldn't get higher marks or greater praise than what you delivered in your review. Please know your feedback means a lot to everyone on the Solar Energy Services team - we look forward to the many great solar years ahead that we know you'll experience with your home's solar system and we hope to be able to work with you, your family and your friends on additional future projects!

    Richard Burgess: My initial experience with SES was tainted as my appointment was cancelled twice last minute. The first time no one followed up to reschedule. After posting my experience I was asked to give them another chance, which I did. The technicians showed up on time, were professional and answered by questions. The work seems to have been completed satisfactorily at this time. The company then followed up to see how the visit went. I have adjusted my review score based on this most recent service but also considering my first impression.
    Response: Richard - we genuinely appreciate the opportunity you provided us to step up and produce a great result for you after an unfortunate first step or two. We are glad all worked out well and hope we can work with you again on future projects.

    Leslie Parreco: Shopped around for a solar solution for our new home. My husband and I settled on Solar Energy Services. Seth Blankensop was very professional and knowledgeable. The system he proposed was perfect for our energy needs with the best cost. I'd definitely recommend giving them a look. Support staff folks were extremely responsive and helpful. We also purchased a battery backup system.
    Response: Thanks so much for the kind words, Leslie! Delivering positive customer experiences on top of technically-sound solar designs & installations is a central part of our daily mission, so it's always rewarding to get direct feedback like this that lets us know we're hitting the mark! We look forward to hearing more from you over the coming years as your new solar system produces many thousands of kilowatt hours of clean energy for your home while providing a very strong long-term return on your solar investment!

    Gloria P: I would highly recommend this solar company. They uninstalled my water heater solar panels so my new roof could be completed. They also serviced the solar water heater. This was an older model heater and panels. Their technicians were polite and knowledgeable. They kept me apprised of what they were doing and any problems found. They were very respectful of my home. I would give this company 10 stars!
    Response: We always strive to give 5-star service, so we're twice as happy with your 10-star feedback! Thank you so much for choosing Solar Energy Services!

    Stefnee Perry: We were referred by our roofing company in Oct 2018 to use Solar Energy Services to remove Our Solar City (Tesla) solar panels. We were told it would take two to four days to reinstall the panels after the roof was installed after the 30 day waiting period. It took almost three weeks. When asked why it was taking so long,, we were told they were not familiar with Solar City and were learning. as they were reinstalling the panels. Fast forward to 2020 when we had a Solar City maintenance crew come to inspect our panels, we were shocked to learn we had exposed wires and a laundry list of issues that made our solar panels hazardous to use. When we contacted Solar Energy with the issues, they refuse to take full responsibility saying they have a one year warranty ( that we were never informed of). They then said in an email that because of the support from Tesla they no longer work on their projects they said they are responsible for some of the issues, and would pay $500 towards the $2100 Tesla will charge to restore the system to working order. We had issues from the beginning from workers urinating in our back yard in plain site. Workers breaking yard lights or just not showing up . And the last day they were on site departing and leaving the back gate opening knowing we have dogs. That resulted in our dogs (3) getting out. As responsible owner we should have checked before we let our animals out, but they successfully closed the fence each day leading up to that. Thankfully all our dogs were recovered in a few minutes. To date, we are still finding parts in our that were removed by Solar Energy. Thankfully we have a good end to the story thanks to the roofing company Capitol insurance Restorations. They acted as a liaison between us and Solar Energy since they recommended Solar Energy. They were able to work with Solar Energy to reach a adequate solution for us. Please avoid Solar Energy as they do not stand behind their work or will say something is out of a warranty, a warranty they fail to inform you of
    Response: Hi, Stefnee - thanks for the feedback. We're sorry you're still dissatisfied with the outcome of the service work we performed. We worked hard to accommodate the request related to another company's system - please let us know how we may still be able to assist you moving forward. Sincerely, The SES Team

    Andrew Haynie: Shopped around for a solar solution for my home. My wife and I settled on Solar Energy Services. Seth Blankensop was very professional and knowledgeable. The system he proposed was perfect for our energy needs with the best cost. I'd definitely recommend giving them a look.
    Response: We really appreciate the kind words and positive review, Andrew! While we know you're just getting started with your new residential solar system, we're excited by the thought of the many years ahead of great clean energy production and even greater returns on your solar investment for you and your entire family. Thanks again for choosing SES for this awesome home project!

    U.S. Department of Energy: what do users think?


    Olivia Y.: I love that I was able to visit here but the building is very old and kind of smells like dust and needs to be maintained better on the inside. however, on the bright side... or maybe not so bright... they're not using our tax payer dollars to fix it. okay, I'm off topic here... they do good work.

    Luca Williams: Just wanted tom say a big well done for investing into 43 projects to Accelerate Advanced Vehicle Technologies Research. EV's are the future.

    Suirahpla Nogemo: Funnily enough, no one who works here has any Energy in them. 2/5 for false advertising.

    ALL PAK NEWS: Awesome place and his work for USA
