"I received bids from several different Solar installation companies from San
,
, and even Dallas.
" , my sales person was by far the most knowledgeable and professional of all the companies I interacted with.
helped me understand what I should be looking for in solar panels, technologies, and what would make most sense financially for our family. When it came to price
wasn't the lowest but they had the best value between service and cost. In the end I didn't spend much more for a system installed by
than I would have with another company and I feel I received a much much better install. I decided that I wanted to use a technology that
had never used before and didn't have much experience with but I had done my own research and felt that the technology would be better for my application.
was great in getting up to speed on the technology for me and they are now supporting the technology. I was the first install of power optimizers for
and they went out of their way to help me get it and support it. Awesome job! The best part of my experience was the install. The engineers that designed my system are professionals with training and experience designing and maintaining solar systems. They were true professionals and I felt I was in great hands with people that knew what they were doing. Some of the other companies that came out to give me site survey's were clearly minimum wage workers with little experience in the technology of setting up solar systems. They were more trying to figure out how many panels they could get on my roof rather than what would be the most efficient, cost effective solution for my roof.
did an incredible job on the install and all the engineers participated in getting the system installed and setup. I was a little worried about cutting into my roof but the install job
did was world class and there have been no problems with leaks so far.
uses a system for securing panels to the roof that goes way above and beyond city codes. Even the CEO of the company came out to inspect the system. Truly a world class experience.
the CTO of the company was instrumental in helping figure out monitoring issues that came up after the install and he was very engaged and excited about solar technology. He followed up for months after the install to ensure things were running good. My overall experience was great and I would recommend
to anyone wanting to install a system. If you want a truly professional experience with people that really care and are passionate about what they do give
a call.

"I wanted black frames because I felt the panels would blend in better than silver would on the roof. I was right. I wanted the panels installed in two neat rows" toward the rear of the roof so as to be less obvious from the street. They installed everything according to my wishes. It looks great and in a less obvious manner! The inverter installation and monitoring devices are cutting
. We have been exceptionally satisfied with
from start to finish. Their engineer has been out to check the system to make sure it has been functioning well. The CEO,
, came to our house to explain everything and answer questions and he has been most responsive when I have called him on his cell with further inquiries.

8 tips for finding the best solar panel installer

One highly rated provider shares eight tips to help you find the best solar panel installer for your home and get the best return on your investment.

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.

Connecting your residential solar power to the utility grid comes with advantages, but for some homeowners a stand-alone solar system is a better fit.

Angie's Answers

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.

I had been looking into Solar power for my house and got estimates from different companies, when I got

's estimate it seemed like a good offer, so I called and spoke with
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
.
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
gave me the standard lines about Solar, which is expected, and then I made an appt to meet with him face to face. From the beginning it was good, he was on time, respectful, answered every question I had. He had his engineer come out and do the actual layout and gave me the actual cost of the system that I wanted, with options if I wanted to add or subtract panels, everything. The price was fair, much lower than many, and he explained the process. First I needed the Okay from my
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, he told me their are laws that prevent them from saying "NO" and ensured me he would handle and "NO" from the
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. the next step was CPS Energy rebate, once that was approved, they scheduled me. I was advised that there was a possibility that the client in front of me may be delayed and I could be done a week early, and he was and my system was installed a week early. I have had zero issues with
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, I have recommended them and I know at least of them are going forward with
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. They are a great company that I highly recommend. My first electric bill with solar was $2 for electricity, normally around $60 for the same time period.

The entire process from calling for an appointment to get an estimate, to getting the estimate, to the installation of the product was just great.

San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came out, measured the windows and gave me a very fair price.
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
explained everything about the product, and the steps that would be taken to manufacture and install the shades. I told
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
I would need to get
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
approval and it may take a week or 2 to give him an answer.
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
understood and told me there was no pressure and for me to call when I had approval. Within a week I had approval and called

with the go ahead. In less than 2 weeks
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
called and said the shades were ready and
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
would give me a call to schedule an install time. Sure enough within a couple hours
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
called and we scheduled the installation for 11/12/14. On the initial installation trip every thing was going great until the large arched window was being installed.
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
just couldn't get it to fit right and it was causing the screen to have

San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
explained that the screens are made on a machine and the arches are perfect whereas the brick work around the arch was done by hand and of course would not be exact.
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
installed the shade the best he could and said he would be back in a couple days with his partner to get the screen installed more precisely. A few days later
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came over and got the arched screen installed perfectly. I was so impressed by their workmanship, and professionalism. After seeing the screens on my windows, I liked the look so much I had
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
give me an estimate for screening on 2 of my west facing windows that I initially didn't want screened. It took just 2 days for that shade to be made and installed. I really appreciate the quick turnaround. The screens work just as
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
said they would. The amount of glaring sun is greatly reduced as well as the heat. And, they really dress up the look of the house. I should have done this years ago. If you are looking for ways to help keep your home cooler consider solar shades and give this company a call. You won't be sorry!

I really can't say enough great things about these guys. They really care about PV energy and providing a quality servicie. I've worked with them expanding my solar array over a few years and I can call and ask them for help any time and they are always incredibly helpful/interested. I would have written this review a long time ago if I knew they had an Angie's list site. From that perspective, I've been working with them for probably about 3-4 years and their work ethic and service has always been spectacular. Their equipment has produced exactly what they predicted and they have done all the collections of rebates on my part so I never had much in the way of paperwork to complete.

The service provider with
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came out to install an attic fan, he was really nice, polite, and professional service provider. As he reviewed my attic, he continued to try and push other sales in upgrading my attic. I appreciated his opinions in trying to upgrade my attic, but i did not like his approach in trying to buy other jobs At this time I only wanted my fan to be installed, but he was not being attentive to the desired job I intended for this company to perform and I decided to end this deal.

Working with
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was a great experience. They handled everything, and I do mean everything. We had lots of
problems with our
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and they handled it so well, our
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
finally realized that they could not fight us and the panels went up. They also completely handled our CPS rebate and all the dealings with CPS. The process did take a while, but each step has to be approved and handled by so many people that it had nothing to do with the operations of

. We got to know each person we worked with well and they all were very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend them to anyone who is considering a

I contacted
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
last year in preparation of our home being built. With the technology at the price that it is along with the rebates that are being offered it's a great time to jump in. I started to work with
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Love. It is very easy to become "friends" with her. She is very laid back, easy going and listens to you know matter how much you talk (I talk a lot.)
I like to get my hands dirty with items like this so I did a lot of research on the various inverters and panels that are on the
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. Even though I changed my mind a half a dozen times,
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was there to support my final decision. I ended up going with Enphase Micro Inverters and LG G3 panels. For those who do not want to worry about the minor details,
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and her team had come up with multiple proposals to fill my needs. She gave me multiple options based on budget and performance.
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
also works with a "Green Loan" company so if you don't have any equity in your home for a loan (Like me and my new home) you can use that to help purchase the system.
Once I received a closing date I had Circular come out three days after my move in. They had the job complete within hours and the panels look great!!!
With Enphase Micro inverters you get an app on your phone (Or you can log into it through a web browser) that tells you how each panel/inverter is doing. I noticed that one of my inverters was not functioning correctly. Circular came out with a new one in hand but we found it was just a faulty connection. Quick and easy fix.
CPS takes about a month to do the final inspection before they allow you to turn on the system. So for about a month we had a dormant system on the roof. So
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
has a program where they will pay you the estimated amount of energy you would have produced from the time of installation to the time of system start up. Another plus in my book.
Overall the system has been performing great!!!
Now for some numbers.
The total cost of the system was roughly $16,500 (I don't have the proposal with me but it's close to that)
The CPS Energy rebate was near $6,500ish. This gets paid directly to the Solar Company.
Now my cost is about $10,000
When we do taxes our rebate will be about $3,300 for the Solar Credit.
So technically our out of pocket cost was around $6700ish.
For the month of January we had a dormant system (See above) as we were still waiting for CPS. So we had a normal electric bill. For a 1200 SQ FT house it was $98.75 (Mostly heat it was a cold month in San
San Antonio Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
)
For the month of February we had solar for about 3/4 of the month as CPS turned it on early that month. The bill was $22.28
For the month of March we had full solar with 9ish cloudy days (You produce a little solar but not a lot)
My bill was $11.25
The entire month of energy cost us 11 dollars. That's fantastic!!!
The other benefit we have noticed is the side of the home with the panels remains much cooler on the warmer days. The panels absorb the light/heat of the sun so it does not hit your roof. In turn, some of the home stays cooler (Plus a much cooler attic.)
All in all we are very happy with the system and hope you find this information useful.

It took 4 1/2 months from application to approval of completed project, but we were kept apprised of the completion of every step. Because of the weather, we haven't been able to get an accurate picture of our return on our return on our investment yet but should have some preliminary results as we start getting more sunshine and the attendant warmer weather.
