The installation went very well, however there was a problem with a City of
inspection which caused me to have to get my electrical service replaced and upgraded. This job can cost as much as $2,000, but since the installation was sold as a "turn-key" system, they did the right thing and paid for the upgrade. Not every company would do that, but they did. I highly recommend

I will describe the details. I used the
Energy list of contractors, I then went to Angie's list and did a compare. I came out with 3 contractors. I then received quotes. They were all about the same price range, but I selected
based on Angie's list and I trusted the solar Consultant Mr.
from Revolve. He took the time to explain the different inverters and costs. Basically all installers start with a Airial view and then followed with a on site survey of my property and roof. The costs are all the items needed for a complete install and the contractors. The pricing is per watt. In mym case 24 panels X 270 watts = 6,420 watt system. This included a Solar
inverter.
Mr.
quoted me a few options (different total wattage, different inverter systems), I finally concluded that the 24 panel system with Solar
inverter was going to be my system. $20,000 total price less $7,900 in
Energy rebates Yes, my property value went up by $20,000, but the Texas Legislature has a law toe exempt home owners from the tax increase. You have to file a form each year for this to happen. This is goodness if you decide to sell your home. You have the higher home value less the property tax increase during the time you live in your solar powered home. Now don't forget that you will also receive a 30% Federal Tax credit on the amount less the rebates when you file your tax next year. I used the
Energy loan option 3 through the Velocity Credit Union to finance what the rebates did not cover. I anticipate my payback in about 6 - 7 years. Maybe sooner from my early calculations. The installers and technical staff were professional and went out of their way to make the install a success. Now I used a
Energy Option 3 loan which means I was doing a performance audit and new high efficiency HVAC at the same time. This involved many pre inspections and final inspections for the different aspects of the projects, Thanks to
's experienced office manger (
) she communicated with me at every step of the project with details on when inspectors were coming and when
Energy was bringing my new meter that determines how many KWH's I will be selling to
Energy every month. Both
and
who were instrumental in the technical side also influenced my decision as they performed the Site Survey and final install of the wifi connection . This allows me to see in real-time what I am generating from each panel and total going to city grid.
and
I am very satisfied with the information you gave me. I can view this through any PC and with my smartphone. Their is a Android and iphone app to use. I was out of town this weekend and was able to monitor my solar production via my smartphone. Both my wife and I agree that this was a no brainer to use Solar to help cap / contain our monthly costs. I extremely satisfied with
, especially the team that of professionals that made this happen. New note: my wife is thinking on a all electric car, this means I will be adding about 4 aextra panels next year to cover for the extra KWH demand when we obtain the car. I am confident that I will be asking
to upgrade my system. Yes,
Energy will rebate next year and the tax credits are good till 2016. My thanks to everyone at
who helped with this project. Mr.
A.

I was very impressed with the professionalism, technological tools and commitment that Circular applied to my project. (Thank you,
Austin Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
!) They worked up numerous proposals (under varying assumptions and financial requirements) to help me evaluate my options. Ultimately, after we had finalized the system design and cost, they sent a crew out to my house to evaluate solar exposure and tree limitations. At great disappointment to all of us, my house is just too shady (normally, a nice problem to have.) I would definitely work with

again if I ever change houses. The only reason I gave a B on price is because using a full-service firm like Circular is more expensive than buying from a home improvement store or using a less-than-full service firm. If anyone hopes to obtain

Energy rebates, however, I would not suggest pursuing solar on your own.

1st time contacted salesman said would call me back in 1 hour. He never contacted me again. Second time the Sales Mgr contacted me from Home office in Colorado. I got initial estimates in very unprofessional format, had several back and forth questions and just as I was making a decision the Sales Manager refused to call me back. Had to chose a differnt company.

installed a PV system for us in December 2012. They did a very good job and the follow up has been excellent. Revolve has continued to contact us to ensure the system is functioning properly and that we are pleased with it. Best of all, our electric bill has almost disappeared. Although we pay for water, sewage and garbage, we generated more electricity than we used in 2013 and paid nothing for electricity. Our most recent contact was in Feb. 2014, after cedar

season, when Revolve cleaned our solar panels.

I received very detailed information about solar energy and benefits based on my energy usage. My questions were responded to thoroughly. Unfortunately, the final on-site analysis determined that I do not have sufficient sun-time for effective solar energy (neighbor's tree shades the southern exposure).

presented the various options to provide the solar energy system to my house and helped me to choose which system was best suited for me, as well as the most current technology available. Revolve established a plan for payments (4 payments over the course of the installation with the final payment due when the system was up and running and approved by the city.) Once all the parts were received, Revolve started upgrading my electric panel and began installing the panels. I didn't have electricity for only one day during the panel upgrade. The system only took a week to install, and they did an excellent job in all aspects, mounting the panels on the roof, upgrading the panel, running the wires, and installing the inverter and testing the system. The longest part of the process was waiting for the city inspections and approvals and solar meter account setup. Revolve's installers cleaned up everything after the installation, and left no

that there been construction. With the heavy rains we had this fall, there were absolutely no leaks. They showed me how to check the solar generation via the internet and an iPhone App.

I only had one problem with the system. The optimizer for one of the solar panels failed. They came out, diagnosed the problem, ordered a new optimizer, and installed it when the part came in.

was excellent at communicating status throughout the installation. They did great, high quality work, and executed completely on all their commitments. It is hard to believe that a major installation could work so smoothly, but it did.

installed 6.25KW system in August 2012. They put 14
panels on the south side of the roof and 11 panels on the west side.
Installation took 2 days. It's been more than a year and we did not have
any issue so far.
As for the production: Our production exceeded

's
estimates (I guess they use government's PVWatts for estimation).
Production exceeded estimates in every single month between 4% and 38%.
Note that this may be related with the unusual sunny weather (i.e.
drought) in

area. The yearly estimate was 7,550KWHr, but our
system generated 8,867KWHr energy (+17% difference) in the first year.

It was so smooth. They had three options for me for wiring to be sure the look was pleasing to me. All of the contractors were professional and courteous. And quick!
They helped us with our rebates and we saw our checks with in a month. Over half our cost returned to our home.

's tips, I do laundry and run the dish washer when the sun is high and bright. I even cut back on AM cooling and wait for the afternoon when it is so hot. Our electric bill was $19 for March- we have 3000 sq ft.
