San Jose Solar Panel Installers Reviews

"By far the best contractor I've ever dealt with. The company is extremely professional and is easy/effective to communicate with. The contract is comprehensive and is well-written, covering nuances typically ignored by other companies. The employees are very knowledgeable and can provide solid advice on the optimal solar system needed to net the customer the most amount of money. Other firms tend to not optimize this by recommending more panels than needed, which ends up costing more than paying the Tier1, lowest, electricity rate for some usage. The vendor is also very good at coordinating with others while making it invisible to the home owner (roofer, GE, city inspector). The solar panels were installed much faster than expected - 1 day on a Saturday - this was extremely convenient!

The job was complicated in that the prior owner had some kind of flaky rooftop HVAC distribution box with several legs providing "dump air" to the center of each of the upstairs rooms. (Flat roof with many penetrations, a true recipe for leakage). We had decided to go with Solar due to the high electric bills we were seeing so we knew we needed to break down and rehab the roof.

"I was initially referred to
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
@
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
by Grape Solar, whom I had contacted to find "qualified installers" of their panels. My plan was to install solar panels so that I could finally in good conscience get -and run- ducted air conditioning for my home to keep the place cool in the summer time.
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
called right back and his first words were... don't do that! He suggested a number of much simpler and cheaper options, including a whole house fan, attic fan, and radiant
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. It made so much sense! Of course they do solar too, which I decided I wanted anyway, irrespective of the wish to power A/C. I was impressed that
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was so reasonable and not trying to sell things that I did not need. For example, he calculated the size of solar system I would need to maximize my return on investment, rather than trying to push the largest possible system. I ended up getting a bigger system than he recommended (what if I buy a plug in electric vehicle? What if prices increase? etc...) but that was my choice (and I am very happy with it!)

mentioned his showroom in
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, which has
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
of many of the products he carries. I showed up there the next Saturday. Normally, they are open on Saturdays, but this being a Saturday in June, the showroom was closed while
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and family attended a graduation event. When I called to ask why the showroom was closed,
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
went out of his way and made a special trip to open up for an hour just for me, since I had made the trip from San
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. This was really nice of him! I pretty much decided there and then that I would like to do business with these good folks. Their prices -especially on solar- are also very reasonable, and were cheaper than those of other installers that I had contacted.The survey of my roof and attic by
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
took place within a week and installation of the whole house fan happened in the following week. The bulk of the solar panel installation was done in one day (a brutally hot day), with a couple of follow up visits for tweaks and preparation for the permit inspection. Attic fan installation and radiant
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
were also done in a day. The installers were helpful, considerate, and cleaned up after themselves. I was happy that the installers were careful with my roof, which is metal and easily dented. They replaced tiles under the panels so that they could use a mounting system that was less likely to leak, and the work looked very clean and orderly to me.So - all in all- a most excellent experience! Do I have *any* beefs? OK, a nit - response to email could have been a bit better on a couple of occasions, but it didn't cause any problems. Overall, I am thrilled with the result of the work. My house is cool, I sleep with fresh air wafting through the bedroom, and the electric meter spins backwards most of the day! Hooray!

"We're very happy with our new solar system.

the salesman was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He made absolutely sure that we were satisfied with every step of the installation and final product. The installers themselves were equally professional and courteous. They showed up the same time every morning. Communication was excellent."

was our sales rep and he did a very good job explaining the options for system size based on our past use records and arranging a meeting with a rep from SunRun to consider alternative leasing schemes. My choice was to purchase the system rather than lease.

(President and CEO) checked in early on to make sure my questions were being answered and to solicit process improvement.

Before moving forward it was necessary to replace the 1968 Zinsco electrical service panel and install a slightly oversize 125amp electrical panel.
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
(one of the engineers) identified this need early on. The work was done within 2 weeks using my own electrical contractor. The new panel made it possible to keep the 100 amp service for the house and have the ability to add power from the array and still be within the upper design limits for the total amount of electricity into the panel.

San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
did a very good job working with the City of San
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
permit staff and keeping the glitches to a minimum. Some of the difficulty required education of the city inspection staff regarding safety features on the new Square D electrical panel.

The installation crew were organized and clear with what could and would not be done.
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and the crew of installers were on time and orderly. Interaction with the installers and the inspectors was at a professional level.

In December 2011 the work was completed, the state and federal incentives were sorted out.
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
had reviewed my options for rate structures and prepared the utility applications.
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
filed all permits, applications, and paperwork to install and make the system ready to go online with PG&E. At this point I am waiting for PG&E to swap out electrical meters and allow me to go online.

The staff at
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was foundational to the success of this project.

"Done well. By good people." I agree and recommend them.

"Solar City was outstanding to deal with, from the very first visit with the Salesman, to the final turn up and test.

Solar City's pricing is very competative. I purchased a 4.3 Kw system consisting of 20 panels. Their Salesman answered each and every question that I had. I had obtained competitive pricing from two other Solar Companies. I liked the price and proposal from Solar City for a complete purchase price.

Solar City does a great job communicating with the customer. Each and every step is communicated well in advance. The installation was done very promptly and professionally. I really liked the Solar City crew and their approach to my project.

The only down side, and this is no reflection on Solar City, but the City of San
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
building department and PG&E take so long to come out and do their part that a project that Solar City could get done in mere days drags on for many weeks because of the slowness of the building department and PG&E.

Solar City was really great! I would recommend them to anyone doing a solar project.

"This was a terrific experience from start to finish. The sales rep was personable and professional, happily answering a slew of questions that I as an engineer posed him about the solar portion of the project. Major kudos for their ability to navigate the complex bureaucratic web of incentives related to solar. They even helped me find FREE financing for the project since it had a solar component to it.

The roofing crew was fast and efficient - 3 days start to finish. They did a terrific job and the roof looks great! There was one small accident which caused some damage to my ceiling but they immediately took responsiblity and got it fixed.

The solar crew also did a great job - very quick and efficient. There was one error made in the design, regarding the placement of the panels. Once again,
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
did not balk at taking responsiblity and promptly got the problem fixed.

All in all, this is definitely one of the most professional, 'together' contractors I've ever worked with, anywhere in the US.

"The
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
system seams to be working fine. My issues are as mentioned in other reviews are the lack of phone comunication . I had to pick up cigarette butts from all over my yard and trash left at the
San Jose Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
. I had asked them to explain how the system worked and the tech said he would try and come by when i came home from work but never showed up?? The new pump that was installed was defecteve and they replaced it right away. On the startup service for the pool they charged me 325.00 and came 3 times but 1 of those times was to replace the defective pump "
