Excellent service. I don't utilize much electricity to begin with, yet I do save at least $20 a month!! Very efficient and the best solar panels by far.

The install was easy. They made the paperwork process fairly
. The only thing I dislike is the size of the inverter and monitoring station that they put on the house. This is not a detriment to their product or quality of work as it is the industry standard, we were just surprised how large it was. Overall the service and product have exceeded our expectations.

We had two separate sales meetings with a company sales consultant. In response to my request, he promised to return with more information after the first meeting, but during the second meeting he was still unable to offer much detail concerning the size of the system required to achieve the energy savings we desired, the specific system components that would be supplied, or a recommended site plan for the installation. He did offer a "model home" incentive as part of his pressure to sign a contract, and claimed this was a very limited one-time offer. However, two of my neighbors were offered the same incentive, and the sales consultant claimed to be unaware of those deals.
Subsequent e-mails after the meetings produced a bit more detail concerning the system components, but also pressure to sign the contract. We were unable to get any site planning done unless we signed a contract. In my opinion, the equipment being offered is of very good quality, and my neighbors with similar installations have been satisfied with its performance, however the price charged for a "3 KW system" is about 3 times the retail cost of the equipment alone, and was among the highest bids that I have obtained. We simply chose not to use this company and will continue to

My house was built in '72 (42yrs old) and I don't believe the owners before me ever updated the blown in attac insulation or the duct work, so when I got several calls from different companies promoting energy savings reviews at no obligation, I thought it might be worth while to find out what I could do to improve my home's efficiency. I made an apptmnt for a rep to come to the house 6/3/14 for what I thought would be an"energy audit" and estimates.
This Co is actually based in
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
AZ.They are working Las Vegas now. They seem to be using rebates and Fed. tax credits as a selling point for their products & labor, or what they call "packages", at excessive prices. I don't believe an average homeowner engaging a service independently, would be quoted final prices like these.
A friendly sales rep came to the house and looked in the attic, and looked at my water heater. She asked to get the average of my utility bills (she listed the wrong utility co. I realized later) . She whipped out several worksheets, . She showed me several formula calculations-plugging in numbers and subtracting numbers- , and made calls to the office in the middle of compiling an invoice of what "packages" i.e. jobs or materials, I would benefit the most on energy savings. She was adding and subtracting columns of numbers faster than I could follow. I realized later, she gave A LOT of vague and inaccurate information and very few, if any, facts.
She subtracted $500 for referrals & letting them put their sign in the yard -- which they never did. After 3+hrs she left. I started to get this uncomfortable feeling . She was selling the tax credits and rebates rather than any of the products, because she would list a very large figure and then subtract the value of a rebate or credit that I could qualify for (or the signs), so the bottom line seemed much smaller --a good deal and "should pay for itself in utility savings over 3-8 yrs" depending on the items. She had a 2013 Form for Fed tax credits on energy efficiency upgrades, but she couldn't actually show the lines that would apply to my attic insulation purchases. She said they were going to be on the 2014 form. They offered to finance the projects too, and ran a credit check on the spot from their office (yes, like I was at a car dealership). I did not Finance, but I guess that is another way they can make more money.
The workers were scheduled to came next morning at 6am, came at 7:30am ( unidentified vehicles)
With staple guns, they lined the attic roof with rolls of heat

metallic material as promised.They were done by 9am. I still don't know what the going cost would be for that job -material+labor.
The attic insulation and an attic fan install was scheduled a couple days later, but they called and re-scheduled it for another day or 2 later.
In the mean time I was getting worried that I had no information about or Brand names for any of these products, including the attic fan I had agreed on installing. ( She had described it as a turbine fan, which, on second thought, didn't make sense to me ) I kept trying to call the phone # on their brochure and only got a voice mail box. Then I spotted a tiny LOCAL phone number on the bottom of their website and got a live person on the line. I asked about the fan that the salesperson had said was a turbine, He explained it was not a turbine at all, but a solar powered fan (which, of course, gives potential Fed tax credits or utility rebates). I got a brand name from him and having researched that fan and similar ones on-line (retailing $450 tops), I told him I wanted to cancel the Fan+install for $2000, & that dropped my "Core Energy Efficiency Package" from $8,460 down to the $6460 (although now I'm not sure I will qualify for any tax credit or utility rebate).
According to their brochure, after the completion of my "Core Energy Package", they are supposed to send "an independent team of certified professionals" to my home to "preform a whole home energy inspection" and provide me with a "Home Efficiency Report detailing [my] home's energy performance." I called their brochure # and was told to call "my" sales rep to set that up. I have left her 3 voice messeges .One in late June and 2 in
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. Have not heard back.
To confirm my suspicions I have checked into rough costs since.
My total was $6460.
Average Cost 2014 to insulate an 1800 Sqft attic re: homewyse .com would be about
$2600
-- -Duct work about $400 -$600 - - Subtotal now of $3200. Not sure what a going average in my area would be for the
metallic heat
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, but I doubt it costs anywhere near $3260. I do not know for sure if I will qualify for any tax rebate or local energy rebate program to recoup any of that total. This company (or their sales rep) is pricing high to start, and front loading the rebates and tax credits, on top of that, into their cost estimates. The sales person presents the figures, and in some cases, they reduce the price to you, and then collect the
rebate, themselves or explain you'll get back the Federal Tax credit on your up coming tax return, so you can deduct that amount (approx $2000) off your total though you still pay it to them first.
In hindsight - its the same as raising the prices, before putting something on Sale
I have no complaints with the actual work-installation. I don't, however, know how good the products are (insulation, heat
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
) or what brands they are. My main objection was to the method of selling ( lack of a clear concise estimate with product info) and that they overcharged-regardless of rebates or credits. Better to get those 3 estimates --in all situations & don't forget the 3 day allowance to cancel a purchase contract.

Is an excellent company to work with. After spending a year researching options and talking to friends and colleagues who had gone solar, I chose
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because they have an A+ rating with Angie's List, and they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. My experience began with
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who sold me our system. He went out of his way to ensure that I got the most bang for my buck. We looked at several systems at my price point before I made the final choice.

was wonderful, and if you decide to install solar panels, ask for him. Once I had chosen the system,

was easy to work with and kept me informed throughout the whole process. The installers were awesome. They were very professional; their work was meticulous, and they painted the infrastructure to match the roof and side of my house, so it would blend in. They were able to install them a month sooner than originally scheduled, and I was up and running as soon as APS installed the meter.
I cannot say enough about this company. I have never had an easier, more efficient process. Every employee was kind, helpful and easy to work with. If you are thinking of installing solar panels, do yourself and favor and look no further.

They get an "A" from us. We discussed what we wanted and Ed made it happen. They are punctual and honest and I am very pleased with their service. They had to be in our home at times we were not able to be there and I was very comfortable with them. Ed is very up front and let us know the best system that would work for our home and I feel it was worth every penny. The system has proven to be all that I wanted and I recommend this company.

We had several solar companies come out and tell us they could not put solar on our home because of the structure of the south side of the roof. Too many peaks and vents not leaving enough flat surfaces to put enough panels with the new California laws. Then
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
called and offered another option. They said we could utilize the north side of the roof and do a "reverse tilt". I had never heard of that but that is what we now have. It works beautifully and you can't see the panels from the front of our home. That is a plus for people who don't want the panels to show. With the reverse tilt, the panels tilt to the south but are on the back of our home.
IEnver also got us financed with low interest financing. We didn't want to get locked into a 20 year lease or purchase power agreement. Two year phone or cable agreements seem long, but 20 years??? No thank you! We
Atlanta Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
all the benefits of the tax credits by purchasing the solar system. We can also monitor our system on our smart phones or computers. If we have questions, the monitor company is always there to answer them. I know this because I have called them. They knew what the problem was and it was an easy fix. Just a loose connection when the solar was first installed...even before we got the OK from PG&E to start using the system. The system works beautifully now. We are so pleased. We had almost given up on the thought of solar for our home.
The only slight problem we had was, the installers were late the first day they were supposed to come out. We called and they did come out, just a little late.
The total cost of our system was about $34,000 but we will get about $10,000 of that back when we do our taxes.

1. Installers were dinged twice by city inspector on installation, but they finally got it right. 2, Installers gave me technology to monitor my solar electricity production, but no technology to monitor my usage. Information on usage would help me monitor my system better. 3. Some of the installation crew struggled with English. The supervisor could communicate okay. 4. Sunpower Inc., the solar company, made me sign off my rebate rights and tax benefits, in addition to a $5600 installation fee, in addition to a $156 monthly lease of the system for 20 years. But this still cut my bill into less than half of what I was paying So.

. But I'm still not so sure what the value of the benefits I signed away were. 5. Overall I am satisfied with paying less for electricity.

We moved into a newly built house and needed a lot of work done. Ed mounted tv's, did wiring, set up wifi for the home and helped me understand how to work everything. We are very impressed with his work.
Ed was very professional, on time, honest, did what he said he would do. I highly recommend him!
