We contacted this company to install a ground mount solar system.
This was our experience.
April 17th 2014 – Signed contract & paid deposit of $15k
May 27th 2014 – After numerous unanswered calls & emails we received a
bill from
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
of
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar. When we responded that
the first month’s bill was supposed to come after installation &
nothing has been installed our salesman,
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, called. He
said the city was considering it a structure. We advised
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
that we
have pulled special use permits in the past for structures.
June 9th 2014 - We met with
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, Senior Planner for the City of
North Richland Hills. He gave
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
the information to apply for a
special use permit.

24th 2014 –
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, COO of
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar, called us & advised that he could move
the solar panels to a different location that the city would approve.
He also said he could enclose the solar panels due to the fact that we
would have to remove a loafing shed in that location. I agreed as long
as it would be enclosed.

27th 2014 - We responded to an email from our salesman,
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, regarding the
new structure. We asked to verify the pitch, height & enclosing the
sides.
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
responded with the pitch & the height. He said he
would check with
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
on enclosing the sides.
August 14th 2014 - After more unreturned phone calls & emails we sent an
email requesting a read receipt to everyone in the company that we had
an email for.
August 20th 2014 –
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
called saying he “could” enclose it not that he “would”
I told him again I was not changing the location if it was not enclosed.
August 21th 2014 – Planning & Zoning meeting at 7pm.
We were there. No representation from
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar so the city denied the permit.
So we have no solar panels but
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar say we have forfeited our deposit.

We have had the solar panels for several years. They have proven to be a great investment. They give us several extra swim months. The people at
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
are helpful and very responsive to any issue. After finding a soft spot on the patio roof they had the roof repaired and resolved the issue. I was so impressed with
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. He was always pleasant and attentive to my questions or concerns. They have proven to me that they stand behind their product.

My wife and I got quotes from five (5) solar panel installation companies in the area. (We even looked at purchasing wholesale - panels costs are great, but installation and getting a contractor would have been a real pain). We learned a lot from the five companies and their proposals. We eliminated one company because they proposed panels on a roof that gets less daily sun exposure (there is an instrument to measure sun exposure to roof location) than our easterly facing roof. Another company didn't specialize in solar installations - they were an HVAC company that could also install solar panels. We wanted a company that specialized in solar - their costs were higher than
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, too. A third company was eliminated because they wanted a 10% deposit before providing the final estimate to us - a "good-faith" gesture on our part (as they said). We eliminated them immediately - no other company requested anything like that. The 4th company was OK, but cautioned us their price might be higher because of their overhead which, supposedly, is the experience and expertise they use to provide great service. We did not feel that their overhead was a problem we needed to pay for. They were a fairly big company and understood the systems, but their cost was higher than
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. They also wanted to requote after I told them we had selected
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, which I thought was odd (I just didn't respond to the email). We selected
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because the price was significantly less,
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is the owner/installer/salesman, and
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
obviously understood the systems. He knew on which roof to install the panels and how the system could get optimized. We felt that we just had to deal with
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
on any issue since he knew all the cost, equipment, and technical details. (The other companies primarily had different people doing the installation and selling).
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is a licensed electrician, which is required for panel installation and permit approval.
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
contacted proper agencies for permit approval process (ours was approved by Town of Apex).
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
does not have a lot of personnel but, once they got started, they moved right along with the project. We were not in a big hurry to get the panels installed - we just wanted to make sure they were installed in time to qualify for each of the 3 rebate programs. Everyone from
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was very nice and easy to get along with. The system looks great, the installation is professional-looking, and they cleaned up well after they were done. Installation could have been done in less than one week if there hadn't been so much rain in August. we've used many contractors over the years for various projects and we would agree that
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was the correct selection for our solar panels. Professional, very qualified, nice - everything you hope to get when you contract out a project. Yes, we'd use them again.

I contacted
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
via the solar panel manufacturer as they are a local installer/ distributor.
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, the owner, came on site to audit the sun exposure and take measurement. Based on that, we iterated on the quote until we were in agreement. The work went then quite quickly. It took one full day for
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
to install everything on the roof and another half day to connect and test the pool connections. The product and installation are of great quality. It works perfect. The whole experience with
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was flawless and I strongly recommend this kind of product for in-ground pools.

Salesman was courteous and assured us that we would see a substantial decrease in our energy bill. We have seen about $30 worth so far, maybe more later--we'll see. The work was done promptly and done in pretty good fashion. I just think that their price is a little on the high side for what was done.

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
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. 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
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
back to do other solar work.

.I chose
Manchester 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
Manchester 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
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was with
Manchester 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
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
I immediately received an email from
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who is the Project Manager at
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who began to plot out a game plan for the installation. Ed then scheduled
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
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
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
received the approved permits back for the county Ed
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
then scheduled the installation of the solar system for
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
28th and
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
29th which was an indication of how busy
Manchester 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.
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
headed up the installation of the system and he was here on the morning of
Manchester 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,
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
from
Manchester 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
Manchester 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
Manchester 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.
Manchester 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
Manchester 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.
Manchester Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, 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
