Smoothly removed all the components from my system. They were prompt, neat, courteous, and listened to all my concerns. Definitely use them again if needed. Great job.

In 1993
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
installed a solar hot water heater in my house.
Now 20 years later, the solar hot water heater was no longer working and I am looking to get my roof redone.
I looked at the solar hot water tank and found a sticker with
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's name and phone number.
I called. The same number worked after 20 years.
After I gave him my address,
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
remembered some of the details of the system that they had installed so many years ago. I was quite impressed.
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came out the same day and examined the installation. He sent be an estimate shortly thereafter.
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and an assistant showed up exactly on time. They removed the solar panels on the roof, the heat exchanger tank in the basement and the pipes in-between.They worked very professionally -- they were quick, efficient, and they cleaned up after themselves.
I am quite pleased with the work that they did and can recommend
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
as a good company to do business with.

We did have to play phone tag for a few days, but once we made contact things went pretty smoothly. We spoke to
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
on Monday and he made an appointment on Tuesday. He was running a little late (1/2 hour) but called to let us know. He diagnosed the problem quickly and replaced the part. Also, while he was here we asked him to check the entire system, which is one of the older (1970's) solar hot water systems. We were assured that it is in good condition and is an old reliable model. He took the time to explain how the system works and showed us where the shutoff and bypass valves are. Our system is happily chugging along again.

This work was done as part of the Solarize North Portland program through the City of Portland. The program provided free solar site surveys and quantity discounts on solar installations.
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was the designated contractor for this program.

The first step was the site survey. Engineer
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and an assistant examined the house inside and out to determine whether it was suitable for solar power. This included the electrical panel and underside of the roof. The house, having been built in the 1890s, has rafters that are more widely spaced than normal. I was told that it would cost an extra $350 for an engineering study to convince the City that the roof would support the panels. In addition, I was told it would cost $500 more for additional labor and safety equipment for our very steep roof. These extra charges seemed reasonable, and were disclosed upfront. After the site survey,
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and his assistant presented three different options for solar electric systems, which differed in size and cost. They answered all of my wife's and my questions and asked us contact them if we wanted to take the next step. There was no pressure to buy.

It took us a week or two to decide whether to do this project and what size of system to install. I emailed more questions to
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, which he answered promptly. We decided to get a system with micro-inverters, which can be monitored remotely over the Web. Once we made a decision,
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
emailed a contract for our review. It was lengthy but thorough. Again,
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
answered all of our questions and concerns.
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
required a 50% down payment before work started, with the remainder due after completion.

After we submitted the contract and initial payment, we waited nearly two months for work to begin. Some of that time was waiting for permits. Once work started, the whole installation was done in a week. First, a roofing subcontractor attached a support rack to the roof. Next, an electrical subcontractor installed and wired the panels. The system was turned on briefly, to make sure it worked, and then we were told not to turn it back on until it had been inspected. The inspections took another month.

inspected the work of the contractors, and the electric utility inspected the interconnection between the solar system and the electrical grid. After the work was completed,
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
did a final walk-through with us present and accepted our final payment. Finally, we received a letter from the electric utility authorizing us to begin generating.

This project had a few problems along the way but nothing major. For example, we had to contact
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
several times to get the roofing contractor back out to remove a board that was left behind on the roof (other than that, cleanup was great). In addition, it took several weeks to get
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
back out to do the final walk-through. After completion of the project, it took another month to get remote monitoring set up, for a total of four months from contract signing until everything was done.

The quality and performance of our system has lived up to expectations, and we look forward to many years of electricity from the sun.

Ours is an old house and has some peculiar features. In every case,
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
has been creative and careful in working on our home. He and his crew have been professional, friendly, and easy to work with. He is honest, on time, and on budget. There are few cases where I can unreservedly recommend a company or individual. This is one.

It went extremely well, though it took longer than expected, largely because of paperwork delays (

incentive application, net metering application) and then weather when winter got serious.

is consistently responsive, almost always answers his phone and also responds to email, and

is capable, friendly, and responsible.

I had contacted 4 solar specialists for estimates on solar panels. One showed up with an estimate without even asking me how many KWs I wanted and without climbing on to my roof. The second one gave me a good estimate but did not bother to see my roof either. The third one sent out a mass email saying they would be in our neighborhood for an estimate. The fourth person (
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and Solar)
Portland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was way better than the rest. He came home twice, climbed up on to the roof both times, took measurements and then gave me a comprehensive document for an estimate which included prices, where the panels would be installed and the maximum number that I could install. He was very knowledgeable about the installation process and told me up front that my concrete tiles would be a bit harder to work with. In the end I did not go with solar because I found PGE's Green Source Option to be extremely economical but I was very impressed with

. I asked him why

Koyaanisqatsi was prompt and straightforward in providing his estimate. He gave a lot of information compared to competitors. His bid was higher for the hot water, but lower for photo-voltaic. He did what he said he'd do, in a timely fashion. He is detail-oriented and always pleasant. I recommend him very highly.
