"They were extremely knowledgeable and informative. Unlike the other company we had provide us with an estimate, they were much more interested in our energy use and developing a quote" for the best system to meet our needs. They were also unique in that they were much more concerned about the aesthetics of their work to make sure that we did not come into conflict with
rules and that the project would minimize the impact on any neighbor views.

"We just had a successful city inspection of our new roof solar installation. The entire installation went very smooth. As soon as the workers arrived, the lead installer (
" ) gave me a thorough orientation of the entire process, and answered all questions I had about options I had for placement of the inverters and conduit runs. All employees were extremely courteous and were careful of our property. Our
Consultant,
Casarotte (mcasarotte@
.com), had good follow-up throughout the contract and installation process. Her recommendations on the system design and type of contract plan were excellent. Anytime we had any questions or concerns, she immediately provided us with the answers. Since we wanted the appearance of the solar system to look as uncluttered and tidy as possible, she made sure the final design incorporated a pleasing module arrangement and that all conduit would be almost entirely
from casual view.
was very reliable and accessible throughout the entire process, even in contacting the work schedulers to confirm all installation times for us. She was our central point-of-contact at
, providing us the confidence that the project would be completed as promised. We signed up for the Power Purchase Agreement, which has zero installation costs, and are expecting approximately a $90 monthly reduction in our electric bill.

was a great company to work with. From my initial contact through the end of the job, they were very responsive. We had existing solar panels on our home. We" wanted to add to the current array and add an additional array in a new location. When the installers arrived, they noticed that the shade from our neighbors house was stopping solar production earlier than it should on the existing array. The original company had not wired the system in the most efficient manner. The
installers rewired the existing system (at no extra charge) and added on to the system. They also added another array on a different section of our roof. The difference was clear from our first electric bill. Our summer bills did not exceed $20! The installers addressed all our questions and responded to any concerns we had. We highly recommend

Going solar can take some time. I initially leased the system (through an energy company in CA) in the fall of 2013, but after design estimates were finalized, the project was put on hold while waiting for some higher-capacity panels to arrive, that were available in limited quantities.
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
finally re-designed the layout on the roof and came within 90% of their initial estimate of power provided by the solar facility. This allowed us to move into the installation phase in summer 2014, but boy was it worth the wait.
The lease with Sunrun (company in CA) is 20 years. They handle insurance and maintenance on the solar facility for the duration of the term. Taking today's [BGE] rates into consideration, the facility will pay for itself in just 8 years of the 20-year lease, with another 12 years of "free" energy after that, all guaranteed and maintained by Sunrun (
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is just the installer in the arrangement). Instead of sending a check to BGE, I now send a check to the credit company who financed the project. My BGE bill since project completion: $0. It's really a no-brainer.
When you initially call
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, they will do a study on your address, then come to your house and give you a presentation, including lease options, option to buy, and how much money you can expect to save over the life of the lease and/or solar panels based on their rough research. Everyone I met in the company was very helpful...you just have to remain patient. They even have a section of the company who will redo your roof if you need it, and roll the cost into your financing for the project.
The only downside to the lease option is that you have to pay for it up front. I had a large system installed, so my total due at project completion is probably higher than average. Buying the system outright is not economical in any way I could tell.
Make the call...listen to the presentation...and do the math yourself.
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is a reputable company that will help you realize your dreams of making this planet a better place...or at least rely a little less on the power companies.

I would highly recommend this company.
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was professional, friendly, and happy to explain the exact issue, what was causing it, and how it would be repaired. The repair took less than 10 minutes and everything works great.

The house had been empty for a few years and the water inlet valve to the roof top solar heating unit for the pool had been plugged off. The house had a history of rodents in the attic so I was also thinking the solar unit had been chewed up and no longer useful. I informed the company of this when I called for service so they could bring a new unit to replace the existing one.
The employee came and inspected the unit, repaired the pipes for the inlet to the unit and one small leak. The total charge was 106.00. He could have very easily replaced the unit and charged me 5 or 6 hundred dollars. I respect his integrity and professional
attitude. He informed me that the unit still had a few years left of serviceable life.
I will use them again.

Sales and proposals - Customer sales efforts are top notch. The technical information provided with the proposal is superior to any of the other proposals that I received. Admittedly, I'm a geek and an IEEE member. For the NVEnergy usage information that I supplied, there was no oversell or cutting corners. I checked all the proposals received using the Dept of Energy modeling software (this SW pointed out that other vendors' proposals were using smaller microinverters (215W) for the 250W solar panels). The DoE model calculations for your system, were comparable to model and financials that
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
had provided in their very detailed proposal.After several months of operation, my new net meter confirms that 6 KW system was the right size. We are almost net-zero, even during the hot summer months.
Commencement of project - The site survey was timely.
Pre-installation communications and timing- There was an expectation that it would take some time doing the engineering drawing and submit them to
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
County and NVEnergy and it appears that this was timely done. We received and returned our part of the application soon after the site survey.Then, there was silence! The date for installation seemed to be only set after I called several times; and Magically, the installation could be done "the next day or two."
When I called to verify the installation, it was discovered that the temporary disconnect/reconnect had not been scheduled, although the plan clearly indicated upgrading the 150A panel.However, they recovered from this problem faster than I anticipated.
Installation Scheduling and Sizing --
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was excellent in scheduling the installation around my availability.The original schedule estimated that the panels, wiring and preparation for the new load center would happen the first day and the installation of the panels, wiring the 4 house circuits and preparation would happen on the first day.The TDR and the new load center would be finished on the second day.In reality, the wiring wasn't done on the first day and was completed on the third day.
Quality of the Installation -- That said, the quality of the installation is outstanding. If prospects need to see what a
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
installation looks like, I will gladly be a reference site. After installation they provide an extensive documentation package including the engineering drawings and permits.
Post-sale Service --
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
has been very responsive, e.g., fixing the 24th microinverter and stuccoing the hole above the new load center. They were able to fix the microinverter issue over the net, without an on-site service call.

They came on the date and time specified by the contractor , performed the work to my satisfaction and the system works well...no leaks. I subsequently had them return to do a repair unrelated to the original installation. Again were prompt and timely. The only flaw was that the feeder lines repaired were not painted flat black like I had requested.

Working with
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was a great experience. They handled everything, and I do mean everything. We had lots of
problems with our
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and they handled it so well, our
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
finally realized that they could not fight us and the panels went up. They also completely handled our CPS rebate and all the dealings with CPS. The process did take a while, but each step has to be approved and handled by so many people that it had nothing to do with the operations of
West Columbia Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. We got to know each person we worked with well and they all were very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend them to anyone who is considering a
green alternative to their homes energy consumption. I have two friends who have used them as well and had the same positive experience.
