"This installation was a disaster from my point of view, with little to no consideration for the homeowners time or convenience, multiple days required due to the" installers not having the complete system components at the first day of installation and having to return for additional days due to lack of project planning on the providers management part. The Financial officer for the provider produced, submitted, and received approval for secondary funding from a secondary lender without my knowledge and consent before his actions and made claims that the contract allowed him to do so. But I can not find that provision on any of my documentation. The installation started a month after the purchase with little to no communication from the provider during that time. Then it was a late evening call expecting us to allow the installers to be there the next morning without prior scheduling. The Solar Water Heater system was installed without an Over Temperature Safety Valve, that is required to prevent the extreme water temperature developed in the system from entering the household preventing possible scolding injuries. The safety valve was finally installed weeks later after a scolding incident to my 5 year old grandchild. The water heating system was also installed without recirculation pumps that were to be included. The pumps where finally installed last. During the installation of the thermal collector panels damage was done to my roofing shingles. This damage was repair by the provider weeks after they were advised of the damage. The Attic insulation package was suppose to combine a thermal
film, blown in insulation, 2 solar powered attic fans and a air conditioning refrigerant additive. The crew arrived the first time without the
film and 1 attic fan. The installer that installed the attic fan cut a section of the vertical member of the roof truss system out and did not reinforce that truss in any way. Weakening the roof truss system at that point. This damage was repaired by the provider weeks after they where notified. A second day of installation was required for the installation of the
film and additional blown in insulation. The installation of the Solar PV system was interrupted four times by the lack of components provided by the provider requiring additional returns and days to complete. So the total time from purchase to final installation was four months. The installation phase lasted 3 months where estimates of the time required were 5 days. The installed system did not include the online monitoring capability that was represented at the sale and I was not informed that it would not until the system was being installed. The PV system installer installed the first of two attic fans. The solar system installed is not producing the expected output and the entire package is not creating the savings represented at the sale. In telephone conversations with the provider they now claim they never offer 100% systems, referred to as NET ZERO CONSUMPTON packages, but that is what their website, (at the time of this complaint) advertises. I do not find this company to be honest or have any integrity and can not in good conscience recommend them for any services.

"The work was high quality and the employees were very professional. I waited one year to post this review to see if everything was delivered as promised. And it" was. The panels generated the planned amount of Kw, and I have been paid for the Solar Rec credits. I have and will continue to recommend
to others.

Angie's Answers


Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).


The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 


Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary. 


OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

was one of about 5 solar companies we interviewed. We asked a LOT of questions and they were very forthright and accommodating with all of our questions and concerns. We met with the salesperson on two different occasions, the first being the initial sales presentation and questions. The second being follow-up questions and the decision to go with

All in all, we were very happy with all the people involved from the salesperson, office staff and the installers who were at our home. I believe the price for our system was very competitive and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend

answered every question asked without hesitation, and was always available. He explained the process, how it would happen, what would need to be done, and designed a top notch system for us. Cleaned up work areas, and were very thorough.
I wish there were more contractors like them. There should be more than 5 stars to rate

From our first contact with this company at their booth inside Costco to the sales consultant to the installers and inspectors, we had one of the most professional, problem-free, easy, comfortable and pleasant experiences we have had with a company in recent memory. Every person we interacted with was well informed, friendly, easy to understand (as far as the technical information), prepared to do their job and did it well. We have nothing but praise for this company and the entire process from sales to installation. It is too soon to be certain that the system we bought and had installed will perform as we have been told. We'll see about that part but we are happy with our interaction with this company and it's representatives.
We are also happy with the speed and efficiency of this project. They have a "step" system so that each component of the operation follows a planned procedure. We were informed clearly and promptly and things happened exactly as we were told.
Installation happened in one day. They were clean, neat and respectful of us and our home. I can only repeat once more that each and every person we met did their job well and with a great attitude and friendliness. I wish I could remember all their names to give them all a thumbs up. Great job to all of you!!!

You'll have to take my word for it when I say i researched several companies, got several quotes before deciding to go with
Cleveland Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
for solar at my house. I'm very anal retentive when it comes to spending money on a sizable project for my house.
Igal was OUTSTANDING! He was very prompt and setting up an appointment to come to my house and show me the options they had. (This was back in May) I asked him a LOT of questions, probably bordering on badgering. Not just at the appointment, but afterwards by email too. He was very good in quickly getting back to me.
I signed a contract for a 7.5 Kwh system. I asked about getting a larger system. While Igal did offer to provide me a quote for a larger system, I declined it after he explained why they offered the size they did, and how they didn't feel spending more money would result in a bigger benefit. IE: We don't want to sell you a larger system then needed. So let's get you in something sized for your house. WHOA!! Since when does a business out to make money do something like that?! SOLD!
I was quoted a time frame of 4-6 weeks before installation. To my surprise, they called me in beginning of June to start the installation. Everything was installed in three days. Would of been two, but one of the installers cut his finger and they had to come back to finish another day. The installers cleaned up, were very polite when I was there talking to them.
I've only had my system up and running now about 3 months, it's been producing like it's supposed to. I've been VERY happy with the entire process from

Call and ask for Igal! He is wonderful, works hard to get your questions answered and anything else you may need. I was so impressed with him and the outstanding pricing/installation from him and the company that I have referred them to friends and neighbors.

We had Crew 4 do our install. It was scheduled for two 12 hour days. They finished it in 9 hours! They arrived at 7:30 am and were packed up and leaving by 4:30 pm.

Awesome crew, professional, personable and courteous - a pleasure to have them around all day. They worked so well together and were so efficient while enjoying working together. I can't say enough great things about these guys!
- Melissa L.

I was live on 5-5, right after they installed my solar panels. I had received bills showing me the energy production. Around August 16th-17th my services were cut off without notice, after speaking to them, I had found out they had to do this to several other users due to not having the correct paperwork on file. They called these interconnect documents, which are needed at the start and finish of the job. They are telling me what is holding this up is an electrical inspection from the city, which they actually did already have. They called back on 9/28 telling me they could get me connected that week, but I have received yet another call 10/8 and they had informed me that the town of Smithtown would have to come and inspect the installation of the solar panels before they are able to turn me back on. I loved the service when I was up and running, but the company seems to have grown faster than they can keep up, they can't seem to find things and have been very unorganized.

Job was great start to finish. Took 3 days to complete with a couple more to go online.

oversaw entire job and spent sufficient time with us to familiarize us with equipment, function and monitoring of the system. All questions answered and explained completely. They handled all permits and submissions.
A pleasure to work with and a professional job overall.
(Not your Solar City type steamroller and we OWN it!)
