"This project had many steps, and was spread out over about 6 weeks. First, they removed the old solar water heating panel on our roof, prior to our roof being reroofed" by Neligan Construction and Roofing. After the reroof was complete and fully inspected,
came and installed the solar system on our roof, tied the Enphase monitoring system directly into our home network, and installed the heat pump water heater in the garage. All that work had to be done in various stages, and there were inspections by the City, and JEA along the way.
and his employees were extremely professional in everything they did. There was great communication along the way; they always called ahead to set up the various stages, and always showed up when scheduled. We were always well informed about what was being done, and why. All aspects of the project were done well. We love our new solar electric system, and heat pump water heater. We love saving energy. We very strongly recommend
. They are top-notch!

"We got a bad batch of joints/couplings and it developed a leak. They fixed everything and brought out brand new panels and replaced them all at no cost. They apologized" and it is an incredible service and I would recommend them highly to anybody.

How to Hire a Solar Panel Installer

Choosing the right installer for your 25- to 30-year solar investment is an important decision.

3 types of solar panels: pros and cons

Are you confused about how solar panels work? Manufacturers produce three general types of panels, with variances that affect efficiency and performance. Find out how the three types differ, and which might work best.

Knowing the different types of electric and thermal solar collectors can help you decide which system best fits your home.

Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).

 

The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 

 

Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary.

OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

The system was installed on south facing rooflines with no trees to the south, with 17 total panels on a 1st story garage roof and 13 panels on the 2nd story roof. We decided to hire
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
after obtaining quotes from 2 other companies that recommended we install solar hot water systems but not solar PV systems for other power needs. We paid almost $40K for the system, which tax credits and rebates brought down to a net cost of about $27K.
We were new owners of a house that we bought out of foreclosure, which had been vacant with no utility service for a year. After 6 months in the house, we estimated our average annual energy costs including hot water heating to be approximately $200 to $225/mo. The pre-solar system bills for this 2800sf home built in 2006 closely mirrored the bills of my other house, at 1250sf which was built in 1942 and therefore had far poorer insulation and older windows.
At the time we decided to purchase the solar system, the sales manager told us the following:
(1) We could finance the purchase so that our average monthly energy costs with the system (JEA + financing bill) matched our average monthly energy costs prior to the system installation (JEA + propane bill). We financed the system for 12 years, with payments of $225/month. The system has a life expectancy of 30 years.
(2) That the system would perform at its peak in the spring and summer seasons.
(3) Specifically, we were told that the installed system should generate an average of approximately $200/worth of electricity per month (> in summer, when we could expect to receive a higher credit than the JEA bill; < in winter, when we would apply credits earned in the spring and summer). In reality, the system has only generated between $12 and $45 per month in credits that actually appear on the JEA bill. The system generates additional power that is used in real time, and this real-time production/usage does not show up on the JEA bill at all as a credit because it is not sold back to JEA. Our average energy costs over the past 10 months are actually $45/month higher because the system is not generating enough power to truly pay for itself in the 12 year financing period. Over the full useful life of the system (30 years), we expect the system to pay for itself and to eventually lead to savings, but this will be difficult to calculate as the system is expected to
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
20% of its full production capacity over its useful life.
(4) That we did not need to cut the mature live oak tree on the east side of our house. When we asked to meet with the sales manager and owner to meet with us at our house 4 months after installation because we were only receiving $40/mo. in credits to the JEA bill, we were told that the15 PV panels and 2 water heater panels were only producing at 70% of capacity due to the morning shade from the tree to the east and that in order to increase production, we should substantially trim the tree. However, the majority of the morning shade to the east is produced by a 100+ year old live oak tree that is
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
on our neighbor’s property, so trimming our tree will not substantially improve performance. We asked if the panels over the garage (the ones receiving substantial morning shade due to trees to the east) could be reinstalled at higher elevation to maximize sunlight– possibly even on rack type systems like systems we have seen elsewhere, with the other panels over the 2nd floor.
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
was not receptive to that idea and told us that we had to work with the roofline that we had.
(5) That the panels needed to be cleaned once per year and that
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
would send someone out once a year to clean them. However, 4 months later,
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
told us that to improve system performance, we should clean the panels MONTHLY and that
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
no longer sent people out to clean panels. The owner of the company added that even small twigs or leaves on the panel surface can substantially diminish energy production. We probably would not have installed the PV panels at all, and definitely not on a roof location near an oak tree, if
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
had been honest with us at the outset that the panels needed to be cleaned monthly.
(6) That 6 months after installation,
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
would host a “solar wine tasting party” at our house so we could invite our friends over to discuss the system performance. Nine months later, we still have not received any word from
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
about this promotion, presumably because of our expressed concerns 4 months after system installation.
We placed at least 8 service calls to
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
to deal with numerous installation problems that occurred within the first few weeks.
1. Hole in living room drywall made during installation of system in attic over garage –
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
quickly responded and repaired the drywall after our call.
2. 4 or 5 calls about the hot water tank leaking small amounts of water on the garage floor –
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
responded to all of our calls, and eventually the leak was repaired.
3. Water pipe from the hot water heating panels to the hot water heater in the garage burst 1 to 2 weeks after installation –
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
responded quickly to our report that water was streaming down through the garage ceiling. They patched and painted the drywall ceiling after the pipe was repaired.
4. Loss of power to downstairs HVAC thermostat due to wire being pinched in attic during solar system installation –
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
quickly responded and repaired after asking for a full explanation of the problem and when it occurred.
5. Inconsistent delivery of hot water to upstairs bathroom, especially on days after rain (water went cold after 5 minutes) – When we called
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
4 months after installation, they immediately replaced the thermostat in the hot water tank. It has worked fine since then.
By the time we had no fewer than 8 service calls to the house within 2 months after installation, we were beginning to have doubts about the system. Fortunately,
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
was always quick to respond, and the past 4 months have gone without incident.
We are adjusting to the slightly increased energy costs over the next few years. We may have installed the entire system if we had received more truthful and complete information from
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
at the outset. However, we probably would have decided to only have a solar hot water system installed (at 1/3 the cost, and as recommended by the other 2 contractors we spoke with) in the near term, and in a location on the roof that received the most direct sunlight. If
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
had been honest with us about the impact of the tree to the east of our house on maintenance requirements and system production, we either would not have installed the PV panels or we would have researched more options for installing the entire system above the 2nd story part of our roof.

It took two full days for the install but it was done right. The installers vacuumed near the attic entrance and made sure the little details were taken care of. My neighbor is actually installing the same system after he saw mine.

It went poorly from the start. I was told that the install would take 2 or 3 days and I would only need to miss 1 day of work. I figured that 2 or 3 days might be a best case scenario, so I figured a week. The process from beginning to finish took 6 weeks and I had to miss all or part of 5 days of work during that time. The project started off with a "bang" as one of the workers stepped through the ceiling of my new home. They did send out a guy to repair the hole in my ceiling 2 weeks later. Actually he did a fair job. After the 2 weeks it took to get the solar panels installed on the roof, connected into the electrical panel and ready to go I was told they would contact DOJ and JEA to get the final inspections done and that would happen in the next few days. I waited about 10 days or so and then called up
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
to ask where we were in the process . The lady who I talked, very nice on the phone, apologized to me, she had forgotten about me and didn't schedule the inspections. She asked me what would be best for me so that I would be as least inconvenienced as possible, I gave her a date and told her a morning inspection would work best as I had to stay home from work to wait for the inspector. Shockingly, I stayed home the entire day from work and the inspector never showed on the day that it was scheduled. The following day he did call me when before he could make it and I drove home from work so he could do the inspection and then returned back to work. JEA came out shortly there after and did their inspection and then a week later everything was ready to go. I will admit,
Jacksonville Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
did apologize for the poor service I got, actually they apologized throughout the process, however, that didn't seem to stop them from continuing to make the experience excruciating at each step. Of course the icing on the cake was when the owner called me up to apologize one last time and to ensure I had signed all the final paperwork so his company could get paid. Well he got his money and I hope that the Solar Panels are everything they said they would be, but I wouldn't recommend this company for install.

Gave an estimate on going solar. However, what the provider believed to be the case regarding funding was not so. It was advertised that the cost would be close to net zero once the panels were installed but was not able to keep the cost reasonable to the customer. Staff was very friendly and tried very hard but couldn't secure funding on high value project with homeowner who has no debt and consequently no credit score.

After having a brand new house built in Jacksonville, I realized that my kitchen area and laundry room were very dark. I spoke with my neighbors and friends and realized that they also had the same problem, due to the covered patio and kitchen in the middle of the house. I googled "best skylight" and found

answered all of our questions and helped with the placement of where they should go for best effect. He also talked to us about the advantage of a solar-attic fan. We set-up our installation for the next week and the installer showed up and got everything taken care of that morning. It was seamless and painless. Every time someone comes over to our house, they always talk about how much they love the skylight, I have referred 5 people so far with more to come!

This is an excellent company. Their service call base price was very reasonable, they setup a visit date/time on first call, showed up in a timely manner, and completed the work quickly. No run-arounds, no call backs, no problems. The workers knew what they were doing and did it without much discussion.

Excellent. They arrived on time, completed the work in one day, and when they left there wasn't even any wire clippings, etc., to know that they had even been there.
