Solar Panel Installation reviews in Sacramento


I was interested in solar and got a bid from a competitor and found the price had gone down significantly from what I had looked 3 years or so ago. I reached out to

because of their high ratings on angies list. I have gotten quotes on solar on more than one occasion so I don't really need the same attention that folks new to the process need. The first thing that I liked about this company is they offered to meet in person, or virtually. I love the option to meet virtual. They called me on the phone, and via computer I accessed a site where they shared documents and walked me through everything and answered questions. This was a huge time save for me and I was very impressed. They also offered in person for folks that prefer that method but this was right up my

. I was under time constraints because I wanted to get signed up for a system before the SMUD rebate was cut. They worked with me throughout the process to get me the information I needed so that they could process paperwork before the deadline. I like options.

started with the initial quote which was his recommendation based on my energy use (if i remember correctly 22 panels). I wanted to be able to compare against a competitors bid so asked for a 24 panel bid in addition. They were clearly cheaper (by several thousand dollars).

put together several more bids for me (even worked during the weekend) before I settled on

panels and enphase inverters. I have to rave about
Sacramento Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's suggestion about the Enphase inverters. One of the things that was important to me was being able to monitor power production (I wanted to be sure I was getting the power I was supposed to so that problems could be addressed if there were any). I was also concerned with warranty (panels usually have a 25 year or so warranty and inverters are usually 10. The Enphase inverts are very cool. There is actually an individual inverter for each panel. This optimizes production and if one panel fails, or an inverter fails, you can identify the issue. They also have a 25 year warranty which was astonding. I did run into a snag with financing. I don't feel there are a lot of solar friendly products out there. I have average credit (698 credit score) and make a pretty good salary (60-80k). I wasn't only able to qualify for a portion of the loan I wanted and decided to hold off, pay down a couple of cards, and try again.

has been very patient, following up on the dates I have requested. I should know soon if I can qualify with my new score later this week. If not,

Aztec recommended and installed a new solar control and new sensors and assured me that our system was back in good shape. On the night of Tuesday, January 2, 2013, we experenced the first freeze following Aztec's inspection and repairs. The roof panel ruptured and sent water cascading down the roof. The Aztec technician who responded to the cascading water said "the panel froze and ruptured because the freeze valve is defective." But during the previous April, Aztec had told us they had repaired and replaced everything that was needed. Aztec refused now to accept any responsiblity saying, "we don't warranty anything that we haven't installed." But Aztec was hired in April to throughly inspect the system and replace anything necessary. In my experience, Aztec is either incompetent or unprofessional.


It started out in-home estimate and a visit to the company to sign paperwork. Then there was a conflict between the recommended number of panels. The pool company suggested 4 and Aztec suggested 6. I was in termoil for awhile and extremely frustrated. I finally decided to go with 5 panels. Now I think I should have gone with 6 panels. I think my pool builder failed to hear that I was mostly concerned with the pool temperature in March and October. Of course you don't need panels in the summer in

. But the sun shifts in fall. All of my panels are in the shade by mid-September. A sixth panel would be in the full afternoon sun. Now I will need to pay $500 instead of the original $350 to get a sixth panel. Aztec offers high quality, but definitely at a price. There solar controls and panels are more expensive than any of the other companies I contacted. I chose Aztec because they had good reviews and I trusted their quality. I know people that have problems with their solar systems and it's an annual problem. I didn't want the hassle. My representative, Nick, was very responsive. My only complaint is that the drain on my roof was supposed to be directed into the gutter. It ended up hanging over the gutter so my window gets wet when it's time to drain the panels for winter. But if that's my only issue, I can live with it. So far, I am pleased with the result.
