Galveston 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

on everything except the price which I feel was too high.

We had good results for the entire process.
First,
Galveston 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
Galveston 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.
Galveston 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,
Galveston 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
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
's quote.
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
the answer was always "whatever you want Mr
Galveston 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.
Galveston 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 -
Galveston 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.

& Solar. When we responded that
the first month’s bill was supposed to come after installation &
nothing has been installed our salesman,
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked

said the city was considering it a structure. We advised
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
that we
have pulled special use permits in the past for structures.
June 9th 2014 - We met with
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, Senior Planner for the City of

24th 2014 –
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, COO of
Galveston 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.

, regarding the
new structure. We asked to verify the pitch, height & enclosing the
sides.

would check with

email requesting a read receipt to everyone in the company that we had
an email for.
August 20th 2014 –
Galveston 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
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar so the city denied the permit.
So we have no solar panels but
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. They also wanted to requote after I told them we had selected
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, which I thought was odd (I just didn't respond to the email). We selected
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because the price was significantly less,
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is the owner/installer/salesman, and
Galveston 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
Galveston 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).
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is a licensed electrician, which is required for panel installation and permit approval.
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
contacted proper agencies for permit approval process (ours was approved by Town of Apex).
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
via the solar panel manufacturer as they are a local installer/ distributor.
Galveston 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
Galveston 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
Galveston 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.
