"The 'inspection' turned into them trying to pressure me into purchasing a solar attic fan, and an $11,000 solar water heater that would save costs on my" utilities. I did not want to go through with this because no matter how much I would save on my utility bill, I am paying $11,000 which is not near the savings. I felt very pressured as the rep was acting pushy, and inside my own home. When I cancelled the deal and did not want to pay anything, the rep became rude, unprofessional, and even yelled at me. Beware!

"I had my system installed by Solar Systems about nine years ago. When I called them for a price I thought they were high so I shopped around. I'm glad I did." Everyone I dealt with was very professional and friendly. They worked with me on the price and I saved about $50.00. They showed up on time and did a Great Job.

How to Hire a Solar Panel Installer

Choosing the right installer for your 25- to 30-year solar investment is an important decision.

3 types of solar panels: pros and cons

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.

They did an excellent job on the installation. They got the permit from the city from us and handled all of the other details. And everything is working beautifully.

This was a scary purchase for me, since solar electric systems are pretty complex (so I wanted to make sure you get somebody who knew what they're doing, rather than learning on my house) but are also pretty new (so I couldn't just get recommendations from neighbors). I signed up with
Rainier Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
through a town-wide program, figuring the town sponsorship provided some assurance. The installation went very smoothly, in part because
Rainier Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
seemed to do very detailed design work in advance and in part because the installation crew was very capable of figuring out the remaining issues. Their workmanship exceeded expectations -- their wiring was some of the neatest I've ever seen, and when they had to make holes in walls they patched things up so cleanly I could barely tell they'd been there. I was worried about roof leaks, but they sealed things very well, and we didn't have any problems through the horrible New England snow and ice storms of 2015. The documentation binder they provided with the system was terrific, and they took care of all the registrations I needed to qualify for various credits. The system has been up and running for a year and a half now, and it has been producing more than

estimated, which has been a pleasant surprise. On a couple of occasions I've contacted them with follow-up questions and they've been super responsive. Bottom line: This was a scary project, but it turned out to be remarkably painless and the results have exceeded expectations.

made everything very easy for me as the homeowner, they did quality work, and the system has been performing great. They deserve a clear "A" in my book.

Everything went exactly as they told me it would. I had the same contact

throughout the entire process. He surveyed my house personally, answered all my questions, and then returned with a firm proposal. He was at the house throughout the installation, which went very smoothly.

did not use sub-contractors. They have their own employees who do the installation. It went exactly as planned. Everyone was courteous and professional, in their appearance & in their work.

immediately investigated and updated my software to resolve the issue. The panels have been performing magnificently. The system has been running just over 30 days and I have produced 800 kwh in excess of what I have used for the period. I am very pleased with my decision to install solar and I am very happy with my provider

After installation, the cost of my electricity would have been 40% higher than I was paying PG&E. Due to the cost of the solar equipment and that I would still would have a substantial power bill from the electric company. What they wanted to install would not cover my usage.

I would recommend
Rainier Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
to anyone looking to have good quality panels installed and a worry-free solar installation done. They made the whole process so easy and handled all the details - and there are quite a few. They explained the whole process from start to finish and whenever I had a question during the process they responded quickly and professionally. The construction went smoothly, efficiently and on schedule. They even gave us step-by-step instructions on how to apply for our tax rebate and had all the paperwork arranged such that all we had to do was sign and mail in the forms. It was solar made easy! And now we get to enjoy being powered by the sun!

The servicemen tried to fix the timer on the initial visit but the timer was old and ran slow for a few days and eventually stopped altogether. Given age of the age of the equipment the service man recommended replacing the clock. The part had to be ordered and I was kept informed of the timing of when the repairs would be made.
On both occasions the service prompt and the staff was courteous. I would highly recommend

He hung in there with me. We had originally planned on installing the panels on the front of the house. The homeowners association fought that so we had to revamp our plan. There was no additional cost for changing the plans. I am very happy with the results.
