I spoke with 3-D Solar about six months ago to set up an in-home consultation regarding the possibility of installing solar panels on my house. When Ryan arrived, he was very professional and patient as he informed me about everything relating to solar panels. Any question or concern I had, he answered and set me at ease. I was straight-up with him, in letting him know that I had had multiple companies come out with their estimates and, in return, he was always straight-forward with me for the entire duration of the process. After about a half of an hour of conversing, my mind was made up to go with 3-D Solar for my solar needs. 3-D Solar quoted me the best price of all the companies with whom I had spoken, while also using the exact same top-of-the-line solar equipment. The process was very simple and straight-forward. In order to set up a proper solar system for my particular needs, we went over my last three months of electric bills and crafted a system of energy production equal to, if not a little higher than, my average energy consumption. He was able to create a mock-up of what the panels would look like on my actual roof from an arial view. When it came time for the installation, the team worked as efficiently as they could, until the the rain came. They then took a break for safety until the storm passed and as soon as it was possible, they were right back up on the roof finishing the installation. The app they had me download to use to monitor the panels (energy production, energy usage, energy import/export) is user friendly and easy to read. There were a couple small hiccups I ran into after the installation that were related to the panels and app. These were easily fixable issues that could not have been foreseen at time of installation. They could only have been determined after the system had been “turned on” for a few days. Some of my panels were not producing any energy at all. I was able to see these issues in the app and before I even had a chance to contact 3-D Solar about them, they were already proactively reaching out to me to let me know something was amiss with my system. They scheduled an appointment very quickly and somebody came out to resolve the issue within a day or two, which was perfectly fine because I wasn’t out anything in those couple days. The system was “turned on” after the installation as a viewable-only system, not as an actual energy-producing system, which gave me the opportunity to learn the app and monitor a mock of my solar panel energy “production” and current consumption rates before the system went live. Before my solar energy system could be officially turned on, I had to wait quite some time for the county to come out and inspect the system. After the installation, it took over two weeks for the county inspector to come inspect my equipment/system. Then I had to wait another month or so for that to be processed before I could call my electric company to have them come swap out the current energy meter for a special solar-reading energy meter, after which, a several-day waiting period took place to get that processed. The complete process took shy of two full months from the time the panels were installed to the point of where I was officially creating solar energy. NONE of this time was due to 3-D Solar, as they were constantly on the ball with everything they needed to do. That two-month time was due to the standard waiting period for the various county inspections and processing constraints that were outside 3-D Solar’s control. Solar panels are a big investment and they are not cheap. But 3-D Solar works with a finance company that offers multiple affordable payment plans, often with no money down. A big reason I decided to go solar when I did was because of the government incentive program that gives the consumer a big solar-energy tax break on his income tax filing. I received about 30% of the total cost of my solar panels back when it was all said and done. Since going solar, I have had a $0 electric bill (outside of the unavoidable $17 electric service cost). After my first full month of being a solar home, I wanted to go over my energy bill with Ryan to compare a pre-solar panel bill with my current bill. He was very enthusiastic to go over these with me, sharing my newfound excitement in joining a solar energy family. Even though I have been solar-efficient for about 6 months now, Ryan and 3-D Solar customer service are just as fantastic now, with any of my smallest of inquiries, as they were when they were first promoting their product to me. They have fully and completely honored any promise and assurance made throughout this entire process. As I have already to my family and closest friends, I would highly recommend going solar and, more specifically, I would recommend doing so with 3-D Solar. If I had to do this all over, I would definitely do it again with the stress-free, headache-free, and hassle-free process that Ryan and the rest of 3-D Solar offer. Thank you, Ryan, for all of your assistance in lowering my energy bills and helping to keep them low in a world where the cost of energy only continues to increase.
