"We are the first home in our development to get solar panels, and the first solar install for
in Pflugerville. We had 5 estimates done." We liked
the best, mainly because he answered all our questions. He is exactly the person we wanted - hard-working, funny, and honest. He would correct the slightest error. While working together, we discussed everything from politics to the environment. I've asked
to do other work since the summer of 2011. Once to install an outlet for our Enphase monitor, and another time to run a new wire to our HVAC thermostat. Five stars for personality, attention to detail, and excellent prices for higher-quality materials. We honor
for a personalized system we will enjoy for many years. The carbon footprint for our home is next to nothing. Choose
- the shade from the panels will keep your House, Mind, and Spirit running cool.

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.


Solar Panel Installation reviews in Santa Rosa


I made first contact with the company in February and
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
Gitas was VERY informative and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and helped design and size a system that would work to get me to a net zero electric bill. The big challenge was a very large tree in the back yard that significantly reduced the viability of my south-facing (normally most productive) roof. Using shading data gathered on site, we ended up with a design that spread the 24 panels over 5 roof sections that would produce the most power possible.
I believe that
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
Gitas is one of the most knowledgeable guys in the solar business in the bay area. I started on this journey after someone else came to my door and wanted to put all the panels on my south-facing roof that was shaded by the big tree. A friend who had gotten a ridiculous number of bids for his project recommended
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
The system uses 24 SolarWorld 280-W Mono Black panels paired with 24 Enphase M250 micro-inverters and an Enphase Envoy Monitoring Module. With the monitoring module, I can see current and historical production data from a web browser.
For the most part, everything went smoothly, but with two exceptions:
1) I lost contact with
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
for a few months before we got a contract worked out. He seemed to be a VERY busy guy and at one point he stopped answering my emails. After a visit to his office one day when I was in the area, things got back on track. I signed the contract on May 28 and the install was performed on
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
23 and 24.
2) After final inspection, I went on the roof to check the install for myself and found my cedar shake roof had either cracked or missing shingles in about 6 or 8 places surrounding the installation sites. Customer support was very responsive, but after several attempts to get it right, it finally took me meeting the tech on the roof and pointing out all the places I thought needed repairs.
- Brian T.

Well the owner
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
came right over about 6pm. He check the breakers, then the electrical connections with a meter. Then he took off the face of the inverter and looked inside. He took pictures and told me that he would order me a new one tomorrow morning and there would be no charge. There was some sort of issue with the manufacturer of the inverter which would take some time to resolve I guess. So
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
came back the next day with a brand new unit and stated that no need for me to have to wait. He will deal with the company himself and I was good to go! Still no cost to me. You just can't beat that kind customer service!!
- Duane B.

Excellent plan, explanation, service. The new system works great, and provides us with endless hot water when the sun is shining, and a large tank full of solar-heated water that lasts until the sun is shining again. If it's cloudy for too long, or we use too much hot water, the gas fired tank comes on.
They did all the paperwork we needed to get the Made in Minnesota rebate and to get the Federal tax deduction
- Ellen J.

The purchase with
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
was great from start to finish. Everyone we worked with there was very friendly and professional. They showed up on time in nearly all cases, and when they were slightly delayed, they called in advance to let us know.
The crew that did the install worked with us to ensure the conduits were installed in the least obtrusive fashion and even painted all the conduits to match the house color (with our paint of course). The crew arrived promptly when they said they would, called a few minutes in advance so we could get our dog put in the house and cleaned up each day before leaving. They even let us know about a leak in our solar pool heater that had been wasting water so we could call the other vendor to come fix it. The install took 2.5 days (a little less than they estimated).
We also asked for a
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
clearance from SunPower (not something they normally do) and
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
worked with SunPower directly to get us what we wanted and let us hold back our final payment until that arrived.
There was a slight problem with the system not producing up to specs initially and although we didn't notice, the Capitol City folks saw the issue through the SunPower monitoring system and called us to set up a time to come out and fix it which they did the next day. Since then the system has been producing power as we expected, with several days with a net negative bill. Using the SunPower system definitely paid off as my system starts up earlier and shuts down later than my next door neighbor who went with Solar City. The SunPower monitoring system uses a power line network adapter and requires an ethernet connection to your network router. The monitoring web page is very easy to use and informative.
This was an very positive experience for us and if we ever need to put solar panels on another house we'll definitely call Capitol City.

Aztec Solar made the process of getting solar installed at my residence a breeze.
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
Crumpley was very professional and all of my questions were answered honestly . The installation took only one day and his crew were very considerate of my property and my time. I have had my solar panel for about a month now and have just received my first electric bill

" WOW" . I would recommend AZTEC SOLAR to anyone in Texas looking for solar energy installation for their home or business.

- Belinda M.

The sales person was very informative and helpful, but the quote was extremely high compared to their competition. Pressure to sign quickly is a red flag for me. The equipment in the quote is of high quality. Get a few quotes before choosing
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked

After signing contract, did not hear from office (2 weeks) then get a call saying we will be there tomorrow. They workers went above and beyond the job requirements and did an outstanding job.
- Steve S.

First of all, I wanted to say that I was able to take advantage of the offer on Angie's List for $1,000 for a $2,000 Credit Toward a Solar Panel Installation since I was getting a 6.6 kW system installed. A very nice coupon! I started discussing the solar installation with
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
in early August. After collecting the basic information on my house location and providing him with the last 12 months of my electricity use he sent back a proposal for a 21 panel system that should produce 111% of my energy needs for the year. The proposal he sent back was not a 1 pager, it was 14 pages plus 4 pages on the specs for the solar panels and inverter, very detailed! I told him that I was interested in rounding out the system to 24 panels (3 rows of 8) knowing that the solar panels do degrade over time (they provide that math upfront too). He agreed and quickly turned around and provided me with a proposal for 24 panels that was estimated to produce 129% of my energy needs for the year. I must add the disclaimer that I'm already a very low user of energy. I have a 4 bedroom house and I only used ~7,500 kWh of electricity in the past year. This is why I'm able to have a system installed that has the potential to cover 100% of my energy needs with a Solar Buyback plan from the retail utility company. After providing a down payment, a couple of their folks came over and made measurements and looked in my attic so that they could get the numbers needed for detailed plans. It took a few weeks to get the plans finished. After that, the plans were provided to the
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
to sign off on. The
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
was very impressed with the thorough information provided by company. With the
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
signing off, the company got permits from the city for installation of the system. I also received an Interconnection agreement from CenterPoint Energy that I had to sign off on since the solar system will be pushing power to the grid when I'm not using it. The installation occurred on a Friday, the crew of 7 worked hard all day. On Monday a foreman with the company came out to install a Wifi antenna on the Inverter so that both they and I could monitor the system online. There is a home station that is directly connected to the modem in my house that receives the wireless signal from the inverter. On Tuesday CenterPoint came out and inspected the system and approved it.
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
met me at lunchtime with a nice binder with all the material you could ever want on the system for my records and we activated the system. This is only the third full day that I've had the system and it's produced from 26.5 to 31 kWh a day. It's a lot of fun to see how much electricity your system is producing and you can even monitor it from an app on your smart phone! From my initial discussion with
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
, to the actual functioning system, it was just under 2 months. A lot of things have to happen in that time, I've hit all the major ones above, so you have to be patient with the installation of a system like this. My thanks to all of the folks from
Santa Rosa Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
who installed a system for me that allows me to produce my own energy without any pollution to the environment!
