service in 4 days, professional, excellent work, employees polite and considerate, highly recommended, had one small problem, came out the next day and cleared the problem, Top "A" service in my opinion,
As far as it goes I can not tell at this time if it was cost effective, too soon to determine,

The price estimated was fair, the configuration proposed was sound, but my particular situation made the project not a fit for

. I needed a new electrical service panel to replace one that was set in brick. I eventually went with a contractor who was ready to provide all of the construction work that complicated the project. I would ask

.I chose
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
after interviewing 6 different Solar Companies and I am very glad that I did. One thing that you learn during the interview process is that the Solar industry is still basically in it's infancy and some companies are better prepared to take the time to instruct you on how a solar system works and how all of the components involved work and
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was the best at this. One of the other salesman that came to my house was a real estate agent who was selling solar systems on the side which wasn't a good sign and he was totally unprepared to answer any of the questions that I had. Again this is where Clear Solar excelled.
My first contact with
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was with
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Crooks who made it very easy to feel comfortable with the company and was able to immediately arrange my first meeting with Bill Bright their saleman. Bill came to the house on April 16th, 2014 fully loaded with brochures and manuals and he did an incredible job presenting in an understandable manner how a solar system worked and also how I would benefit from having a solar system installed. Not only did he answer all of my questions but he also also answered questions that I never even thought of. Remember that will receive a Federal Income Tax credit of 30% when you purchase a system which substantially reduces the upfront cost of the system.
After I decided to go with

I immediately received an email from

who is the Project Manager at
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who began to plot out a game plan for the installation. Ed then scheduled

who is the Project Planner to come out to comfirm how and where the solar panels would be installed so the necessary application could be presented to the county for approval. Once
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
received the approved permits back for the county Ed
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
then scheduled the installation of the solar system for

28th and
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
29th which was an indication of how busy
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was which is a very good sign considering that one of the companies I interviewed said that they could come out the following week which is not a good sign.
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
headed up the installation of the system and he was here on the morning of
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
28th with 2 assistants and they were able to install the system in 2 days as promised. They were incredibly polite and efficient and after they left you would have never known anyone was here. A few days later, August 5th,
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
from
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was here to assist the County with their inspection and that went very smooth. This inspection is critical because it is then submitted to PG&E for review which will allow the system to become operational. Less than week later, 08/11, i was informed that the system was now operational and i was producing electricity and I immediately ran outside to watch my meter run backwards!!
I named all of the people that I dealt with at
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because they are all a group of the most professional, educated and very nice individuals that I have ever dealt with in any other previous purchase that I have ever made.
One additional comment worth making is that some of the Solar companies attempt to have you lease the Solar System from them which means that you don't have to come up with the cash upfront to have the system installed and they present you with a schedule of how much you will pay for you Kilowatt hours generated by the system. don't EVEN CONSIDER THIS!! It is very expensive plus you do not own the system and therefore you will not be able to claim the 30% Federal Income Tax Credit for the system.
I obviously highly recommend
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
should you decide that the time has come to install a solar syatem, you won't regret it for a second.

I was a little frustrated by the experience. My project was not a cookie cutter. It required some electrical work in addition to the solar, and the electrical work (replacing the household service panel) required some masonry because the panel is surrounded by brick. I had three problems with the bid provided: 1) the solar configuration was underconfigured. The proposed Enphase microinverters and the solar panels proposed weren't sufficient. 2) The electrical work wasn't ever actually estimated and made part of the bid. 3) The masonry part was ignored.
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
didn't appear ready to meet my complete project needs even if their bid had been competitive. Which it wasn't.
In fairness to the company, this is a busy time for solar providers and my job might not have met their criteria or might have required too much overhead to be profitable, but they didn't explain it that way. They just kind of faded away after their last site visit.

More like an interview for homeowners insurance policy than a solar panel sales call with a senior sales representative asking questions, answering some of my questions but not the important ones gleaned from reading Wikipedia article on solar power, and not providing any information on her company, its track record in solar panels, etc. before leaving. Alll she gave me was her business card and I had to do all the research myself via the Internet to learn about
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
.
She called back two days later to tell me they'd have to send an engineer down from Cincinnati to measure the retaining wall so they could make a "customized proposal we'd both be happy with." I told her they could measure any 40' x 8' wall to get what they needed and wasn't about to pay to have an engineer come down to measure the wall. She sounded disappointed but didn't seem surprised. Expected a callback but haven't heard from anyone at Icon since then.
Subsequently called SunWind Poweer Systems in Floyds Knobs, IN to give me a proposal.

, the owner who's an engineer, measured the wall and used an instrument to determine how much sunlight it gets year-round. Then he answered all my questions, including the Wikipedia ones. Haven't had their quote yet, but this is what I was looking for from

AM Sun Solar arranged zero down financing with a credit union providing low interest rates (4.99% APR) over 12 years, with monthly loan
payments lower than the old electric bills. Additionally, our home Fair
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Value should have increased $54,000 immediately, according to criteria of both the Solar Advantage Value Estimator and the 'Appraisal Journal". Plus, the unique inverter installed provides backup 'emergency' daylight electricity from solar power alone (without the need of any storage batteries or outside mechanical generator) during PG&E blackouts. (That is important to more than just survivalists! And it saves hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, by avoiding costly batteries or generators.) Did I mention that going solar helps reduce the footprint of our house and helps save the environment? We are now part of the 15 million homes needed to go solar in California, by installing "5-kilowatt residential rooftop photovoltaic systems", for the Golden State to cut its energy usage in half by 2050, and thereby "eliminate air pollution mortality and global warming emissions from California" (according to the journal 'Energy' and "

was very knowledgeable and helpful in determining what Solar Installer I would go with. He presented various options that were fairly priced. At the end of the day I went with another Solar company that had the exact product I wanted. But I would definitely recommend

We purchased a portable solar backup generator to provide electricity to our water heater, portable A/C unit, TV for one room, some fans, lights, refrigerators in the event of an extended power outage. This company was referred to us by some neighbors.
Fresno Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
explained everything well and answered all of my many questions. They installed a similar system for another neighbor at the same time as my installation and did a good job keeping me up to date as to their expected arrival times at our job site. The system was installed in the garage in such a manner that it is completely out of the way of the cars. The installation was well thought out and its appearance does not detract from the inside of my well kept garage. The test of the system went well. I hope I never have to use it. But if I do have to use it for an extended power outage, I will update this review.

was there from the beginning to the end, ensuring I was happy. A very great experience and I'm saving money too. They can also connect you to a credit union that does solar system financing if needed. They sold me exactly what I needed and asked for. No undersized or over sized solutions. I would use them again and recommend them as well.
