"The service was excellent in all areas. The company representative worked to make sure we got all available discounts and rebates. The central office staff was prompt and thorough in responding to inquiries, of which I had many! The installers were professional and did a great job. I would recommend

"I was interested in going solar and was introduced to two solar companies at a community forum. I interviewed both of them and received similar, but different information. Not feeling entirely comfortable with the two companies, and since there are an abundance of solar companies in San

showed up as a top rated firm. Since

is a long-standing, reputable commercial electrical contractor in town, I chose to hear what they had to say. They exceeded my expectations from my first point of contact with them through the SDG&E approval and flipping of the switch. Very professional firm. They deserve their top rating on Angies List. I too am now a fan.
"The installation took only a couple days. The workers were very polite. It was not their fault that the installation was delayed by more than two months. It seems the demand was higher than the supplier could produce for the solar panels. After about 2 - 3 months I noticed my electric bill was actually higher than the previous year!

stated this was a colder period of time as the prior'years. I mentioned that our heating was performed by natural gas.his only response was again cooler!

The Company did come out and reposition some of panels arrays AT NO expense. (I had previously mentioned that I could not noticed even a small decrease in my electric bill.) Time will tell if the repositioning will help.

is a competent company which I would recommend!

"The salesman was professional and knew his stuff. The installers were good as well. But we have been having problems since the installation and have a hard time getting anyone to follow up. Our electric bill was supposed to go down, but we aren't seeing it. Their excuse was the circulating pump takes more electricity than they thought. They put in one attic fan and we need 2. I am very disappointed with their follow up. It seems I get the run around with them. I spent a lot of money on this system and expect them to make things right. Until they do I wouldn't recommend using this company.
"Installation went smooth. The guys we very nice to work with. All work was performed in a timely manner. They cleaned up when they finished. The pool pump was on back order but they came back and installed it 3 days later. Great team!
"Ok so here is the in February of 2012 my elderly monthers solar pool panels sprung leaks like a sprinkler so she shut the system down. That’s when she asked me to assist her in finding someone to replace the system. I searched out companies who specialized in solar pool systems, who had good reviews, had current licenses and were insured.
We selected 3 to get estimates and our final choice was

. Their bid was to come in and replace the panels and get the system back in running order.

Converse was the contractor’s rep who was very nice and seemed to be up front and knowledgeable. He stated it would only take a few hours and she would be good to go. I asked him if the price included the permit and he stated he did not need to pull a permit to replace panels on this job.
They came out in April and replaced the system things seemed fine until

when a large leak broke through in her lanai ceiling (which by the way was re-done when the flat roof had been replaced in 2007). From what I recall it was days after a rain so she thought the solar panels were leaking and called

sent out one of his tech that reported back and said it was not the panels.
I won't go through the whole situation here but we went back and forth with
Albany Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, their insurance company, the County, and Mom's insurance company.
Her insurance would not cover anything but the ceiling of the lanai. Moms Insurance Adjuster wrote up a complete report and found the solar panels had been moving on the roof and there is evidence on the screws of a particular panel with roofing material on it.
The County told us that they could not come out and inspect the job since no Permit was pulled and it WAS REQUIRED. So
Albany Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
cut corners on the install after all. We went round and round with the county and Solar
Solutions. After almost a year
Albany Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
finally pulled a permit and we we able to have the county inspect the job.
Well low in behold they agreed with Mom's Insurance adjuster that the damage was caused by a gouge on the flat roof from a solar panel either being dragged across the roof and or the faulty tie down straps which caused the panels to move as they filled and emptied and the whole installation was not UP TO CODE.
No one would take responsibility and with another rainy season just around the corner we had to do something so we started contacting contractors, roofers, and solar compaines again.
Mind you mom had already spent $3630.00 for the solar job done by
Albany Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. Now after many many estimates we paid a total of $8793.49!!! Yes we had to have the panels removed, the roof re-roofed (no one would do a patch job since they could not guarntee the work), the ceiling had to be completely re-done, with new drywall in the area of the leak and re-exturing of the entire ceiling along with painting it. Oh of course then the Solar panels had to be re-installed UP TO CODE.
Mind you during this back and forth
Albany Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
insurance company offered a $1000.00 mom to make this go away! Their words not mine. We told the agent how much this was costing and she said she would contact her client. We never heard back from them.
Unfortunately because of a loop hole they appear at this point to have gotten away with their shoddy job not putting the system in up to code. It's not like we hired some fly by night solar guy this is a specialty company who really knew better.
You know I'm so tired of companies this this taking advantanage of the Elderly and the homeowners when they knew better but do not seem to care, they got their easy money.
This whole ordeal has been extremely rough on my Mother as well as myself.
PLEASE PEOPLE learn from our experience and before you sign on the dotted line call the county and be sure if a permit should be pulled for the job at hand. We trusted

I would recommend
Albany Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
to everyone I know. They are a company you can TRUST!
"Great experience. They took the time to go through all of our options, worked well with the general contractor, and they stood behind the installation. SES even installed a plumbing part that, arguably, the plumber should have installed. SES didn't try to point fingers, they just did the work. They were very professional throughout and even walked us through the process of selling our solar credits. I recommend them very highly.

"I was wary at first about solar electricity, having heard some stories about high costs and sleazy contractors. I did a lot of research on the internet (A LOT) to learn about other peoples experiences. When the salesperson showed up, I let him perform an analysis of my solar exposure and explain to me how a grid-tie system would work. He was honest about the limitations, and I trusted him. A few days later he sent an estimate which included the power-producing potential of my location. The state incentives I was using required a monitoring system also, so I knew I would be able to keep track of the power produced and see if it was consistent with the estimate. 8 months later, it is performing according to what they promised.
I had to wait several weeks for an installation - not sure why this was. The company was honest about the delay. When the installation crew showed up, I was impressed. They used all of the proper safety gear on my roof and installed the panels so that they would be centered on the roof - not a

calculation. I had several detailed questions along the way, inspired by my internet research, and the electrician and installers answered them well showing both knowledge and experience.
"We signed up for this in October, 2013 and were told it would be on-line in early February, 2014. We have a 2-story house with a semi-flat roof, 12:2 slope, over the back half where it was decided to install the panels. Originally this roof was a hot-tar and rock roof, years later we had sheet metal shakes installed on the entire house. The plan was to remove these shakes that would be under the panels, install a comp roof in their place, then the brackets for the rails that support the panels. The plans for the building permit were prepared and upon reviewing them found they didn't address the flat roof or the roofing materials. Corrections were made and eventually work started in mid-December; the shakes were removed and OSB/fibreglass shingles installed, later replaced with plywood/fibreglass shingles and a big to-do about
