"I am very pleased with my Joule experience from beginning to end! My first contact was from a very sweet and polite street outreach worker for Joule. She approached me as I was sitting on my porch. She did not know that I (like many of my friends) had done quite a bit of research on both solar and local companies prior to meeting her. I happily gave her my information and was contacted within the week. The sales person -

New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
- set a convenient time to come out and talk to me about renting a system.
Upon receiving more information I decided to purchase my system - Louisiana has great solar rebates right now. The solar engineer (there is a more technical name that I don't remember) and the installation team could not have been more courteous and professional. They kept in contact with me if/when there were any issues. They worked right up until a downpour ended their first day, and were back the next day to finish the job. They cleaned up everything and showed me how to turn my system on (once the City inspected and Entergy changed out the meter).
Joule's team did an excellent job planning my system - even down to the placement of the panels. Many of my friends and neighbors didn't even realize that I now have a system until I (voluntarily) put the sign out on my lawn.
Again, pleased with service from beginning to end. I highly recommend Joule.

"Very professional, cleaned up, took all of our recommendations into consideration, I'd definitely recommend
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
for solar panel purchase. They even have cool internet tools to see the output of each and every solar panel!
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was a great help with all the info on federal & state tax rebates/incentives. The out of pocket, after rebates, is $5000.00, and the Return on Investment will be 4 years (I think).

"I shopped around A LOT and ultimately
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
gave me the best deal and the most comfort. They were professional every step of the way, didn't over-promise, and worked late on the final day of installation to have the job completed before I left to go out of town. I'd definitely recommend shopping, but, be sure
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is on your short list. They handled all the paper work - permits, etc. But, that's probably an industry standard."

"I'm very pleased with the installation of my solar panels. Workers were here when they were supposed to be, and communication and coordination of the job were excellent. They dealt with all paperwork with the City, Entergy, lender, and have given me sample tax docs for state and federal returns. My system is producing the expected kWh, and I'm looking forward to my first full month's Entergy bill. My contact at
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is

"I had an initial consultation with a
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Rep (Mr.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
) at my father's home. We discussed getting solar panels installed at both my home and my dad's. I explained to Mr.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
that I had a terracotta tile roof and he said that would not be a problem. We paid the $250 deposit and waited. The roof inspector called to say they were at my residence checking the roof. They did not leave a notification so I called
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, a few times, to learn that my roof was unacceptable because it was terracotta tile. At that time I requested a refund of my deposit. I have called several times to request my refund speaking with Mr.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
once (he never returned nor answered my call after the first conversation) and Mr.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
(Mr. Browining's Manager). I have yet to receive my refund and I've called several times a month for over
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
months. I've decided to get a lawyer involved.

"We were given a quote on 3/13/13 and received the final contracts for work on 4/24/13. At the time of final contract, we were told that all of the work would take 4 days to complete. We paid the deposit about a week later ($3455.00 about half of the total of $6885.00). On 6/4 we emailed
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
since the work had not yet been started. On 6/6 we were pushed off for yet another week. At this point we received word from NOLAwise that they would have to grant us special permission to still receive the rebate for energy savings since we were beyond the date of completion. After several missed and last minutes cancelled appointments, the work finally began on 6/11. Over the next several weeks we were cancelled on 7 times for work to be completed. Keeping in mind that we were told that this job would only take 4 days to complete, it was becoming very obvious that we were not a priority project for this company and their promptness nor customer service mattered to them. When they did the solar attic fan, it was put in the middle of the front of the roof. This was done without regards to the aesthetics of the home, or without conferencing with us first. Although this issue has been resolved, but it took several cancelling of appts before it was. We also had to provide the roofing material out of our own pocket to fix their mistake. The debris removed from under the house was left on the sides of our house, making it difficult for our tenants to enter their apartment and then later left in bags on the front lawn for 2 weeks. Thus, killing our grass. After several more no-shows and cancels, the final work was not finished until 7/16/13. During this time,
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
(our primary contact) has made it a point of demanding money for work not yet completed and has gotten progressively
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, letting phone calls and emails go unreturned and even getting to the point of intentionally hanging up on me. we've desperately tried to work with NOLAwise for communication assistance, but to no resolve. Due to the energy incentive through NOLAwise, we waited to pay the final 10% of the contract. The final walk through was completed on Thursday
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
18th at 6:00 PM. We put a check in the mail and mailed it as a certified letter. In the few days it took for the final walk through to be completed, we were harassed by
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
over the final payment.
From final contract to today this "4 day project" has taken 77 days to complete (from May 1st). The constant delaying of work, roofing material and grass seed has cost us not only time and money, but has been a huge imposition into our lives and our home. When it came time for payments we were not given the same respect we gave them in expectation of a time frame for work to be completed. We will never use this company again and will strongly recommend our friends and acquaintances against them.

"the owner,
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, is not only the sales rep but an Electrical Engineer & comes everyday & works with his crew til the project is completed. Very efficient, clean & courteous, an understatement at best.
Our electric PV system is 10.75kW: 50 Sanyo HIP-215N panels with 50 Enphase M210 Micro-Inverters facing East...more /> Our house is 5000 sq. ft., the system saves us 50% on our energy bill year 'round even tho the panels are not ideally placed since our house faces South. It has been in use for 3 years.
We did receive a check for 50% of the cost of the system from the state of LA after only a short time after filing. We are still using the 30% worth of tax credits on our yearly federal income taxes.
Our pool heater system cost $6760, has 10 PDH Vortex panels facing West and included controller, multi-speed pump, 3-way valve, timer & pool blanket
we keep the pool at 92 degrees from May to Sept. at no cost.

"I originally met with
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
of
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
for energy improvements.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
made an assessment of my situation and determined that I would benefit most from foam insulation in the walls, coverings on the windows and a solar panel system. I had already installed foam insulation in the rafters and subflooring (house is raised). It should also be noted that
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
did not recommend more than I needed for my situation. He kept the energy upgrades very realistic.
The crew that came out was very professional and always on time. They did an outstanding job and work was completed in a very timely manner.
I was very satisfied with all work done and will recommend that
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
be at the top of anyone's list for any home or commercial improvements, energy or otherwise.

"Overall - there were several, sometimes serious blunders, but they did eventually sort them out. I am not dissatisfied, just not impressed.

The installations themselves are fine - they did a nice job, and the installers were quick and did quality work. The financing folks (not Joule, but the lenders they suggest) have been good too. The support from the salesmen and their staff has been...not as good. the rapid turnover in this business means I've been handed off to different (and sometimes inexperienced) people during the process, which was frustrating. but my biggest qualm has been the delays in handling and filing my applications for net meters. my systems were installed before October 1, 2012 and in some cases they did not get the apps submitted for 5+ months due to delays, repeatedly misplacing pages, asking for the same document over and over...so as of April 3rd, 2013, NONE OF THE UNITS HAVE A NET METER. the utility company shares some of the blame (late-year rush), but it should not have taken that long to get a
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
form in. I was told by Joule that it would only take, and i quote, "2-3 weeks" to get a net meter. this 6+ month delay means so far I've lost literally thousands in energy savings. They are REALLY hesitant to admit any blame; you wont hear "we are so sorry for losing that document twice, forgetting about this and that, and getting everything mixed up and costing you money when you did nothing wrong."

i should not omit the fact that Joule did price the work fairly after some negotiation. on the other hand, i had to fight (remind, re-send and prove) to retain the financing promotional terms that were promised to me up-front.

do i think there is a better solar company in New Orleans right now? i dunno, probably not...but you will have to stay RIGHT on top of things with Joule, and it still might not be seamless and smooth.
