From initial survey through to the installation of our electric solar panel system, we could not have asked for better service from
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. They completed the installation on time to the highest standard and followed up with us to ensure we were entirely satisfied. The sales and installation team were first class. An excellent company to deal with.

Great solar screens with grids at awesome prices. I priced out the cost to do this every which way including buying the supplies and assembling the screens myself (I'm sure that would have gone great). This was not a big investment at all and works great.

We believe no construction project is error free end to end. What matters is how the contractor handles issues.
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was the only company willing to acknowledge this during the sales process. All other salesmen insisted they had never experienced any problems with any customers ever.
In short, we are satisfied with
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and we are glad we chose
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
to be our solar installer. We would recommend this company to others. Although the end-to-end process was longer than outlined in the contract, time to complete the project, including permission to turn on, was still shorter (2.5 months) than most solar customers experience. With the exception of the electric panel upgrade, the workmanship was professional. We are evaluating this company to a "B" for promptness only because they were not able to meet the contract deadline. We believe early on in the process the ball was dropped and so there was a period of about 30 days where literally nothing happened primarily due to a couple of key persons being on vacation.
The subcontractor for the electric panel also handled digging a trench, stucco break/repair and concrete break/repair. During the process of digging the trench to pull new wire from SDGE's box, he nicked the gas line causing SDGE to turn off the gas until we could come home from work. The stucco repair and repaint was pretty sloppy – there is stucco and paint drips all over the new electric panel. Bottom line here, if we ever need to repaint our house, we won’t be hiring this electrician. But we have no issues with his electric workmanship.
The subcontractor for the roofing was professional and his workmanship is good. There was an issue that his workers nailed through an electric line so one portion of our house had no electricity for a time but that was promptly corrected. There was a couple of minor walk-through issues when he completed the job which was handled promptly same day as reported. Most important, the roofer contacted me after each issue was resolved to confirm we were satisfied. Very professional!

And here are the nit-picky details:
Our process began with interviewing more than two dozen solar installers over the course of two months. We finally settled on
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because we believe it is important to employ contractors who are likely to still be in business if warranty issues arise and
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is the “Big Dog” in San
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. As well, our salesman told us he was also the “Project Developer” which we felt was a plus since whatever promises the “salesman” made during the evaluation process would have to be honored by the “Project Developer” once the project started.
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
’s quote was the highest of all companies interviewed but they were willing to price match so we signed our contract on June 29 with a clause that provided for completion within 60 days. For the first 30 days literally nothing happened. Finally, our Preconstruction Coordination meeting was scheduled for August 1st at which time it became clear that completion would not be on schedule. The project was handed over to the “Project Manager”. The application for permit was submitted on August 7th but with minor errors in the paperwork that were quickly resolved. There was a minor permit issue arising from the city requiring a right of way permit for upgrading the electric panel which the Project Manager resolved. The permits were approved by the city on August 25th. There was an issue arising about our roof. The roofing technique described by the Project Developer at the evaluation stage did not match the actual roofing technique required. The Project Developer suggested our contract price was going to be adjusted. In the end,
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
honored their contract, although we opted to move the panels to a different roof which required that roof section be replaced.
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
worked through pricing that was favorable to the spirit of honoring their contract. The electric panel upgrade required a trench and during this process the gas pipe was nicked requiring SDGE to turn off the gas until we returned home that day. The re-roofing began on September 2nd. The panels were installed on September 12th. The net metering application was submitted to SDGE on September 11th, but with errors and was rejected three times before finally being approved on September 15th. Permission to Turn On system was received on September 18th.

Contacted
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
due to a malfunctioning dimmer switch in our kitchen. The technician (Chase) was on time, very courteous and professional. He replaced the dimmer switch in less than 5 minutes and the problem was solved. I was just a little "shocked" that I was charged $214 to replace the bad switch. In all fairness to this company they told me the price before they replaced the switch and I approved them to do the work. I give them high
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
on everything except the price which I feel was too high.

We had good results for the entire process.
First,
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
sold the system to us. She measured the solar insolation sky view for our car port, then came inside and explained all the pros and cons. Actually, there are few cons since the system should pay for itself in 5 years (due to incredible incentives from the federal and state governments, and our PUD). She answered most questions, and was very good about emailing the rest of the answers after checking with her experts. We worked with
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
to reduce costs by doing some of the work ourselves (mainly dig the trench and doing annual cleaning ourselves), and slightly downsize the system to use smaller inverters, and omit the automated monitoring system (we'd monitor it manually). We also asked to have some provisions installed in case we put in a 220V line for a future electric vehicle. And our system was sized larger than we need (190% of annual usage) to be ready for that car.
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
had run several systems for us, starting with roughly half the size that was sufficient for annual use, and ending with the final system size. Since the payback was similar, we elected to get the larger system.
After we decided to buy the system,
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came by to inspect our panel. We needed an upgrade from 100A to 200A. Our house was built in 1908 and didn't have room in the panel for any expansion (e.g., for EV line). All was included in
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's quote.
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
discussed how that would look, where the equipment would go, and listened to my concerns about our historic house. Then the crew came and installed as we discussed. All went well. It happened a bit later than we hoped, but we understood they were tied up on other homes. It's been a very busy time for solar panel installations due to the incentive program and reduced costs.
Finally
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came by to walk through the system for us. He showed us how to adjust the inverter displays to get all the numbers we need, and discussed how to clean, etc.
In summary, we are very pleased with
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. Our system is pumping a lot of kWh into the grid. It's quite amazing, actually, and fantastic to have free electricity for some years to come, and to do the "right thing".

They were very professional, started the job a day earlier than they had predicted. They showed up on time and cleaned up behind themselves. They didn't fool around, everyone had their job and did it well. Couldn't be more pleased.

Very flexible as I modified my plan and budget.
Installation exactly as contracted, low profile, black and white panels(not the standard aluminum color but that depends on what's best for your situation)
Every time I contacted
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
the answer was always "whatever you want Mr
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
". And they always came through!
The system outputs at least as much power as agreed. No conduit shows on my roof. Much better workmanship that what my neighbor got with Vivant. The array even has a squirrel guard.
The internal meters and switches are well laid out and presentable to my very interested neighbors. All of the exit and entry points are clean and well defined.
The workers that came to my house are smart, courteous and took the time to explain every part, even entertaining my 'off the wall' questions.
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
handled all of the applications and permits smoothly without extra charge. When you go solar be prepared to wait a bit as the state and town is involved. Seriously consider purchasing the system as the payback is short, 4-5 years and its all gravy after that $$$. Almost forgot -
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
guaranteed a minimum SREC price for five years & will sell my SRECs for 1%. 'm happy I don't need to handle that.

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
Naugatuck 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
Naugatuck Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
