It went well. They finished quickly and efficiently. The work looks good. It passed the city's inspection and has performed well since it was installed in March, 2013. We are receiving $940 rebate from City Light this year, which will be applied to next year's electric bill. We could have cash if we prefer. Our electric bill for May and June was $1.42. We are very satisfied with the system. We may even install more panels since there is more room on our roof.

I called
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
based on other recommendations I read on Angie's list. My actuator/valve was broken and the vacuum release valve attached to my panels on my roof blew out, releasing hundreds of gallons of water from my pool. When I called the office, they immediately took down my information and sent a technician named

to my house, who showed up that day.

diagnosed the problem and sent his crew to fix the problem within 24 hours. They came back a few weeks later and finished up some other minor work with the flashings.

also called me several times throughout the project to exactly explain what was being done, and how everything would be fixed and corrected. Overall, I was not only impressed with the quality of work, but impressed with how quickly they came to my home and fixed the problem.

The whole process went magically well. They zipped over upon our first inquiry, responded to questions quickly and thoroughly, came through with the dates they had originally set up, helped us in applying for grants, and were personable and genuine throughout the process. Couldn't have asked for better service. Our first half month's BGE bill was $66. Our first full month was $0. A perfect blend of nature and modern technology! Ask them to explain SREC's and quarterly refunds from your energy supplier if your system will provide more electricity than you use. We are HAPPY!

I looked at several different solar installers and ultimately decided to go with
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
for my installation. They won my bidding process for 2 main reasons - their price and the thoroughness of the quote they gave me. The technology they use for the "iQuote" and the subsequent information packet they provided as I was going through the bidding process was heads and shoulders above what I got from other solar installers.
They provided options for 3 different sized systems and 3 different ways to pay for them - to buy the system outright, to prepay a 20-year lease, or to pay them monthly on a pay as I go basis. I ultimately decided to go with the medium sized (6.75kW) system they proposed and the prepaid 20-year lease. I built a spreadsheet model for the cashflows and the smallest system (4.5kW) was going to be the biggest bang for my buck - over a 17% implied annualized return on my investment assuming no residual value for the system in 20 years - but I was still getting an incremental 10% implied return on the additional panels as I moved from the 4.5kW to the 6.75kW system. The additional savings from going from the 6.75kW system to the largest system they proposed was very marginal and only would have made since if I was expecting my electricity usage to be going up. The return on my investment in the medium sized (6.75kw) system will be around 15% and since I pay my PG&E bills on an after tax basis that's effectively a 15% TAX FREE RETURN which I'm not getting anywhere close to on any of my other investments.
I went with the prepaid lease for a couple reasons. The pay as you go lease had an effective financing rate of close to 10% and would have really only made sense if I didn't have the money to put up front or didn't have the ability to borrow money via a home equity line of credit or equivalent.

's pay as you go quote was right on top of SolarCity's - which is the firm I most associate with leasing solar panels. Both would have had me saving money every month with no upfront costs but the implied interest rate was too high for me to seriously consider it. Buying the system outright was a couple of thousand dollars more expensive than with the prepaid lease even after taking into account the tax credits. With the prepaid lease
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is monitoring and guaranteeing my system including the inverter box for the full 20yr lease which they would not be doing if I had bought it outright.
In terms of the actual installation, the only complaint I have is the amount of time that it took between when I put my $1,000 deposit down and when work actually began.
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
set my expectations well and I knew it was going to take a while but after having done all my research and having made my decision I was anxious for my system to be installed and my savings to start. Once the installation process started everything went very smoothly and I'm very happy with the final result. The system has been up and running for about a month now and I'm still enjoying logging into my PG&E and

accounts to monitor my energy production.

This is our second encounter with AE after having installed PV with them a while back and since they did an excellent job then and provided superior customer service we were willing to pay a little extra for all that they provide. Try and find another A/C installer that will complete permitting for you...we couldn't. Overall the process was very smooth with only minor issues that were resolved quickly and to our liking. I would recommend that a person on the install team be involved in the survey as to best location to install the systems as having that not occur
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
to us having to install the front room system in a different than planned location. Having said that, the new location was much more to our liking than originally planned location and the electrician removed an unneeded light fixture to make this happen...we are VERY happy with the current placement. The same electrician also provided a much better solution as to how to run the electrical wiring than the original plan, even though it included installing a larger panel outside and much rewiring; all without increasing the cost to us. It's possible one of the a/c installers was newer on the job running the duct work as some uneven cuts were made in the ducting and when I mentioned it to a quality control person that called us afterwards to see how we liked the systems, they said they would have someone come out and check it out even though I said it really wasn't a big deal. He was out in two days and fixed the few very minor items that I brought to their attention right away. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE! The systems themselves, while a little bulky in the front room, really aren't too noticeable since they are high on the wall and are soooo quiet inside and outside that you can't hardly tell they are even running. Even in the high powered mode to initially cool the room it's not that noisy...much, much more quiet than a window a/c. While actually the most expensive quote we received, with the quality of the systems, workmanship and customer service, along with all the permitting done it was well worth the extra expense...we are extremely pleased and have recommend AE to others.

My experience is that
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
uses unprofessional and harassing techniques to sell their services.
My wife and I contacted
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
in order to get a quote for solar panel installation on our house. In that initial phone call, we made it very clear that we had previously suffered from poor performance of contractors at our home and that after receiving the quote, we would do additional research, speak with other providers, and we would call
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
if we were interested in having them work on our home. Despite our request,
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
proceeded to call us once or twice a day repeatedly. On two of these subsequent phone calls, I made it very clear to the agent that we wanted no further calls. However, the calls did not stop. It has been a week of this harassing treatment and today my wife once again made it very clear to the agent who called that there is to be no further calls. While it's not clear that
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is done harassing us with phone calls, both my wife and I certainly hope they are.
We are still interested in putting solar panels on our house. However, given the complete lack of respect and unprofessional behavior that
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
has shown us, clearly we will not choose this company for the work.

It when great at first i got a call from there telemarketing team. My utility provide is PG&E. At first when they called me and found out that it was a telemarketer calling me i was skeptical about what they had to tell me. But I heard there telemarketer out and told me about solar and the benefits of solar. As well the that my rates are going up to 30% for 3 years because of the pipeline that burst that PG&E owned and now they have to pay 2.25 billion dollars to the government. He did not try to sell me anything just wanted to give me a free consultation for solar power. Hearing what the telemarketer getting this free consultation did not sound that bad. After i talked to the telemarketer i got a call from the conformation department saying if the date i given them for the solar consultation will still okay for them to go i said it was okay. When the sales person he came not a minute late did he c even came 5 minutes before the scheduled appointment. The price that sales person gave me i believed it was a steal because i had gotten quotes from other solar companies but never got one as good as i got from
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. Even when i signed they gave me 3 days to cancel if i felt the price
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
unjust or for what ever reason i wanted to cancel. later when i signed the project manager called introduced herself and told me what was going to happen next. Now when we were in the design face their site analysis person came the very next day to evaluate my home and the possibilities of where my solar panels will be located. Once he gave it to his designer the designer finish the design really quick that i was stunned on how fast i was done. The designer also send it to m email so i can see it before

takes it to the city. That took the most time just waiting for the permit to be issue by the city. The design that the designer did was good that
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
did not get any correction on it they got the permit the first time they submitted it. Once the permit was issued
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
the project manager gave me a call letting me know that they got the permit and let me know the date of when the installer was going to stop by. The installer came in the morning and finished by the end of the day. The install went flawless just like the inspection that came afterwards. The rebate team did all the pto and paper work at the start of the project so by the time the inspection finished like a week later I got the Permission to Operate by the utility company. Even got thousands and of dollars back from the government because if the programs that
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. I would give this Company a 10/10. If i was your neighbor/friend/ or family member i would recommend it to you if you want great service staying in the price range that you want with excellent service in all departments. Especially the project manager she kept me update every step of the way. Thank you very Much

I interviewed and investigated 6 or 7 different solar companies before deciding on

.
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
came out twice to give us his quote and sign papers.
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was very patient with us as we are very particular and have lots of questions. His price was fair, not the highest bid and not the lowest bid. I believe you get what you pay for and there were too many companies out there that are out for themselves. At the same time we replaced our roof of 27 years.
Draper Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
made sure this was coordinated with the roofing company we selected. The crew that came out were professional and courteous. We couldn't of asked for a better job.
The nice thing about the SMA 4000TL we selected is that if you have a daytime power outage, I can run an extension cord from my refrigerator to the outlet (inside plug the

Signed up through Home Depot for solar panels, they came out, got the sales pitch, signed up....another person came out, measured, and that was the end of it. Waited two months and no design, no nothing, sales rep advised he had nothing new. I went to Home Depot and discussed with the sales reps there, advised they are no longer doing tile roofs, we have a tile roof. I went home emailed salesperson and cancelled the contract, NEVER use this company, there is something very unprofessional about them that I do not trust. Beware of the financial offerings with this company. You may get into something you will regret.I can only bad mouth them, I have nothing good to say. They gave me the runaround for 2 months. It turns out their stalling was in my favor, I found a wonderful solar company that I will review in the future.
