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
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
the answer was always "whatever you want Mr
Kirkland 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.
Kirkland 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 -
Kirkland 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.

We contacted this company to install a ground mount solar system.
This was our experience.
April 17th 2014 – Signed contract & paid deposit of $15k
May 27th 2014 – After numerous unanswered calls & emails we received a
bill from
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
of
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar. When we responded that
the first month’s bill was supposed to come after installation &
nothing has been installed our salesman,
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, called. He
said the city was considering it a structure. We advised
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
that we
have pulled special use permits in the past for structures.
June 9th 2014 - We met with
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, Senior Planner for the City of
North Richland Hills. He gave
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
the information to apply for a
special use permit.
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
24th 2014 –
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, COO of
Kirkland 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.

27th 2014 - We responded to an email from our salesman,
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, regarding the
new structure. We asked to verify the pitch, height & enclosing the
sides.
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
responded with the pitch & the height. He said he
would check with
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
on enclosing the sides.
August 14th 2014 - After more unreturned phone calls & emails we sent an
email requesting a read receipt to everyone in the company that we had
an email for.
August 20th 2014 –
Kirkland 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
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
& Solar so the city denied the permit.
So we have no solar panels but
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. They also wanted to requote after I told them we had selected
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, which I thought was odd (I just didn't respond to the email). We selected
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because the price was significantly less,
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is the owner/installer/salesman, and
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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).
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is a licensed electrician, which is required for panel installation and permit approval.
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
contacted proper agencies for permit approval process (ours was approved by Town of Apex).
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
via the solar panel manufacturer as they are a local installer/ distributor.
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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
Kirkland 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.

service in 4 days, professional, excellent work, employees polite and considerate, highly recommended, had one small problem, came out the next day and cleared the problem, Top "A" service in my opinion,
As far as it goes I can not tell at this time if it was cost effective, too soon to determine,

The price estimated was fair, the configuration proposed was sound, but my particular situation made the project not a fit for
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. I needed a new electrical service panel to replace one that was set in brick. I eventually went with a contractor who was ready to provide all of the construction work that complicated the project. I would ask
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
back to do other solar work.

.I chose
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
after interviewing 6 different Solar Companies and I am very glad that I did. One thing that you learn during the interview process is that the Solar industry is still basically in it's infancy and some companies are better prepared to take the time to instruct you on how a solar system works and how all of the components involved work and
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was the best at this. One of the other salesman that came to my house was a real estate agent who was selling solar systems on the side which wasn't a good sign and he was totally unprepared to answer any of the questions that I had. Again this is where Clear Solar excelled.
My first contact with
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was with
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Crooks who made it very easy to feel comfortable with the company and was able to immediately arrange my first meeting with Bill Bright their saleman. Bill came to the house on April 16th, 2014 fully loaded with brochures and manuals and he did an incredible job presenting in an understandable manner how a solar system worked and also how I would benefit from having a solar system installed. Not only did he answer all of my questions but he also also answered questions that I never even thought of. Remember that will receive a Federal Income Tax credit of 30% when you purchase a system which substantially reduces the upfront cost of the system.
After I decided to go with
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
I immediately received an email from
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who is the Project Manager at
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who began to plot out a game plan for the installation. Ed then scheduled
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
who is the Project Planner to come out to comfirm how and where the solar panels would be installed so the necessary application could be presented to the county for approval. Once
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
received the approved permits back for the county Ed
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
then scheduled the installation of the solar system for
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
28th and
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
29th which was an indication of how busy
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was which is a very good sign considering that one of the companies I interviewed said that they could come out the following week which is not a good sign.
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
headed up the installation of the system and he was here on the morning of
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
28th with 2 assistants and they were able to install the system in 2 days as promised. They were incredibly polite and efficient and after they left you would have never known anyone was here. A few days later, August 5th,
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
from
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was here to assist the County with their inspection and that went very smooth. This inspection is critical because it is then submitted to PG&E for review which will allow the system to become operational. Less than week later, 08/11, i was informed that the system was now operational and i was producing electricity and I immediately ran outside to watch my meter run backwards!!
I named all of the people that I dealt with at
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
because they are all a group of the most professional, educated and very nice individuals that I have ever dealt with in any other previous purchase that I have ever made.
One additional comment worth making is that some of the Solar companies attempt to have you lease the Solar System from them which means that you don't have to come up with the cash upfront to have the system installed and they present you with a schedule of how much you will pay for you Kilowatt hours generated by the system. don't EVEN CONSIDER THIS!! It is very expensive plus you do not own the system and therefore you will not be able to claim the 30% Federal Income Tax Credit for the system.
I obviously highly recommend
Kirkland Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
should you decide that the time has come to install a solar syatem, you won't regret it for a second.
