Initial stages of the process in conjunction with Mass Solar and Solarize
went incredibly well. Highly organized and coordinated, site was evaluated, tree work to maximize efficiency (and fed loan/rebate program) was recommended, panel array was proposed, roof bearing capacity evaluated...all were incredibly efficient. Plan was proposed, costs explained, rebate program explained, contract drafted. Contract signed. Building permits pulled. Installation scheduled and carried out neatly and efficiently. Check paid on installation....then.....Stalled. Poor follow-up with final steps-quite frustrating. Project Manager switched several times. Poor communication in those transitions. Poor organization of steps required between installation and final electrical inspection, and starting the collection of solar onto the grid. It still isn't hooked up! I have called, and pushed, and finally think they are coming next week after having electricians "install more grounding" prior to final inspection. Incredibly nice people, but it is tempting to speculate that their customer service extends as far as getting new contracts until the check is in hand, then things languish a bit. Probably they are taking on more installations faster than they have infrastructure to handle? Not sure. But I am having to manage and cajole the final aspects of this project in ways I hadn't anticipated from their initial organization and follow-through.

Everyone on this team was first rate, complete professionals, that were always willing to go the extra mile. I had originally sought a request for proposal from 5 companies that were rated "A" on Angie's list. I found Solar Tech's proposal to be one of the most detailed/comprehensive, explaining exactly what they would do, without any

"gotcha's" for later. A good example, JT
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
quoted me a system that had one of the higher power rated (5KW) without be most expensive, and also included the cost of a service panel upgrade/replacement, should one be needed.
All permits and subsequent inspections were done like clockwork and passed on the first attempt, no rework was required for any task on this project.
Prior to deciding to so solar, I had an issue with my service panel; a couple of my lights would flicker, especially at night. I had called an electrician for this issue, whom advised me that the service panel would need replacement at a cost estimate of around $2,000. Therefore, I had expected
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
would need to replace mine as part of my solar installation.

,

's electrician came out prepared for a new panel replacement, but instead discovered a couple of loose neutral wires, which he corrected. SDG&E, during their initial inspection, directed a new panel be installed 18 inches from the front of my house, in accordance with new code (my home was build in 1970).
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
installed a new 200 Amp panel for the solar install, keeping the existing one as a sub-panel.The installation looks wonderful, and did NOT incur any additional cost at all.
The install of the 18 panels themselves were completed and on time, look awesome, and the contractors cleaned up the area so well, that when they were done, you could not tell any work had ever been done!
I would also like to note that most of the work was accomplished while my wife and I were away on vacation. They worked around our schedule and plans with complete flexibility.
At the time we were ready to throw the switch and go live with our solar system, JT and
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
provided me with a great understanding of what I should expect to see (and why) with the installed monitoring system/tools. After viewing the monitoring of the live system for the past 2 days, it is perfectly clear, they certainly were right, and the provided "envolve" monitoring system let's me see, with adequate detail, that my new solar system is working as promised. We have had some of the hottest days of the year these past 2 days, which meant running our central air conditioning around the clock. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it feels seeing how this new system produces nearly 90% of this peak usage. I can hardly wait until the weather starts to cool down next week, when we will not use the AC, and watch our meter "spin backwards"
In summary, our experience with
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
exceeded ALL of my wife's and my expectations, and without hesitation, would recommend them to EVERYONE!

For the past few weeks, I have been dealing with a wonderful solar panel installation company called SunRun. I had contacted numerous other companies, but SunRun quickly separated themselves from their competitors by exhibiting the highest degree of professionalism. They returned my calls promptly, and they followed up on commitments to call me in an appropriate time frame. Everything about converting to solar power was explained to me in a way I could easily understand. They asked me for my last 12 months of power consumption from Nevada Energy in order to calculate the size of the solar panel system I would need. Based on the system size, they quickly calculated what my monthly bill would be. Most people think converting to solar power is too expensive. That may be true if you are buying the panels, but with SunRun you lease the system for a 20 year period, and you can choose to have a flat monthly payment that never changes. They explained to me that I would still have a small bill from Nevada Energy since they are providing the meter and a connection to the grid. Unfortunately, it would be quite expensive to be disconnected from the grid entirely. What this means to me is that anytime Nevada Energy gets a rate increase approved, I will be unaffected. I will still be paying the same amount to SunRun 20 years from now, and a very small bill to Nevada Energy. They made me realize that not only will I be saving money now, but 10 or 20 years down the road, while Nevada Energy customers are paying 2 or 3 times what they are paying now, my bill will be basically the same as it is now. This seems to me to be a no-brainer. I would characterize SunRun's entire staff as very professional. Every step in the process demonstrates to me that they are willing to commit whatever resources are necessary to make the entire process run smoothly. When their surveyor came out to my house, he was towing a piece of machinery with a bucket lift that raised him up safely on top of my roof where he could make the necessary measurements and calculations to come up with a design plan.I am writing this review prior to completion of the project, as I have no reason to expect that the rest of the process will not be as trouble free as what I have seen thus far. Along the way, I also found out that SunRun has a Super Service Award from Angie's List, something that most of its competitors do not possess.I would highly recommend SunRun to anyone who is thinking of converting to solar power. I would like to offer myself as a referral to anyone interested in converting to solar power. SunRun is trying to capture the "word of mouth"

The sales person,
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Amiram, came out to our 80 year old home to provide us with a quote for solar panels. I had been investigating this project for several years and had a pretty good idea on what the costs would be. We were told that the main electrical panel might have to upgraded at an additional cost, however, as we suspected, our existing 100 amp electrical panel was sufficient and didn't need to be replaced. When
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
gave us the prices they were right in where I expected them to be. After a little negotiating, we came to an agreement and started the process.
A few days later, a representative of the company came by to inspect the roof areas for the panel placement. He was very informative and professional and told us that we had 2 possible locations where the panels could be placed. We called
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
with our decision the next day.
One week after our agreement, the roofer,
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, came out to review the different roofing materials and colors with us. He was very pleasant and explained what they were going to do and what we could expect. Since they had to tear off the entire existing roof, we thought it was going to be very messy, however, the work-site was kept clean and safe at all times. There were a few mishaps during the work, however,
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
made sure that everything was corrected before he turned the job over to the solar panel installation team.
The solar panel installers were very professional and courteous. They informed us of everything that they were doing and how we could expect the job to proceed. When they were finished, everything was inspected, approved and finaled by the LA County inspector.
I'm usually accused of being pretty skeptical, but this time I'm glad to say that we actually made a good choice in contractors. During the entire process from start to finish, my wife and I felt confident that they would do exactly as specified on the contract. And they have.

In brief, everything went great, and both my wife and I are very happy. Yes, we would go with

Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
at a previous client
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's house; looked at
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's solar system; and then signed the contract. Yes, I spent a lot of time researching, but the process of researching itself was fascinating (and even fun, but I'm a "geeky/nerdy" guy who finds physics/electricity fascinating). The installation itself was only a few days. It took many days, however, before NV Energy to come out and switch out the meters. Now, let's cut to the chase; let's talk about money: $45,000 upfront (in 3 divided installments, 20%, 60% and 20%) for a house that's almost 5,000 sqft in "living space/indoors," and our system is 14 kw.hr system.
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's system is 5 kw.hr system for 1,500 sqft living space (as
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
retired), and it would cost around $16,000-17,000. The going rate is $3,250 per each kw.hr system. Keep that in mind; anything higher than that rate, you are paying too much. Also keep in mind that that rate is BEFORE you get your federal tax credit. And the federal tax credit itself is also a bit tricky, too, and the best thing to do is to "owe" the federal government lots of income tax after you file your tax return so that you don't have to pay what you owe them, i.e., reduce your withholdings by increasing your "tax table" number from, say 0 to 2. I paid $45,000 for 14 kw.hr system (approximately $3,250/kw.hr). I reduced withholdings, i.e., increase the tax table number from 0 to 2. So I get a lot more on each pay check. I expect to owe more than $13,500 after I file my tax return next year. I will pay, however, whatever I owe MINUS $13,500. So, in essence, yes, you paid a large sum for your solar panels, but you are getting it back gradually in small installments on your paycheck, i.e., you don't have to wait until next year for that 30% federal income tax credit! The next question on your mind is how much is your NV Energy bill? For
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, $120 (was $450 last year). For August, $99 (was $420 last year). Per calculation, my solar panels make about $320/month of electricity, assuming nearly every day is sunny. And that's for about 20 years, after which the efficiency goes down gradually. By its 30th year, the panels are expected to maintain at least 60-70% of its generative power, which is still about $200/month. Now about

Other than the multiple times they said they'd come out and do it and we'd wait weeks for them to finally come out, they did a good job and the price for the quality is very nice. Worth the wait! They would get all A's if they would have called or come out when they promised.

Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
did a fantastic job. He was great in responding to our initial call, troubleshooting our system, corresponding with the manufacturer, replacing the malfunctioning inverters and walked us through how to resolve the issues. He's very thorough. He even took pictures and sent them to us for our files and pointed out some additional issues with our panels. Excellent, excellent experience. Highly recommended. We will definitely use his services again!

Getting the service provider to schedule the work, order the parts, and perform the service under warranty was far too time consuming and difficult. They don't return phone calls, they have lots of excuses (no parts, new employees, new management, etc).
BUT the technicians are great, fast, and good!
And I got so frustrated that I found someone else to do the work, but only
Hendersonville Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
had the parts! So I was stuck with them.
