Very well. They handled everything, and their proposal was conservative, with estimates of production and ROI actually below what I have realized. They also waited for my approval when they were concerned about my roof, waiting for an independent roofing expert opinion.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Installed 24.75kW solar panels on my office building.

The 9.69 kWh solar energy system was installed by StraightUp Solar by their professional installers and professional electricans. The system has been working to perfection since it was installed one year ago. The system has excessed our expections (even when they were high in the first place) in regards to solar production and interactions with StraightUp Solar. We highly recommend them for any ho...

We did several interviews before deciding on this company. They seemed the most professional. The sales promises have not lived up to the reality. We emphasized we wanted no surprises in achieving the advertised production. We were assured this would not happen. In reality, we ended up paying 10% more for less production. We thought we were being thorough, but it did not save us. They may better t...

The initial person that I talked with was very good and knowledgeable, and gave me a lot of good information.  The person that did the bid was not very competent.  He did not bring the device that can estimate the sun in an initial visit.  After some discussion as to how much energy would actually be produced, he came back and did the measurement with the device.  There were mistakes on the bid in...

I found them on Angie's List. The job was a good job. They did a real good job of installing the panels. They didn't give me all the information that I needed, and I had to keep going back to them to ask more questions, but they were fast in giving the answer. The project took a while, but that is the way it is. I started the process in October, and they didn't get the final approval until Decembe...

We greatly appreciate the chance to work with you on your project and also appreciate your feedback. We did wish to share that your solar components were premium components at somewhat of a premium cost, but, allowed us to maximize your available roof space to get the most solar production from a fixed area. We apologize if we were slow to respond to your requests for information in anyway after t...

ALL the work was done VERY PROFESSIONALLY and they clean up after themselves as well. The work was performed in a timely manor and communication was always shared. (too many companies don't communicate) There were 35 Solar Panels installed in three separate pods (if you will) to give us the most benefit. Once we received the assesment and the final estimate, we decided which Solar Panels we wanted...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We received a very timely presentation, and shortly after an assesment was done of our home to determine the best placement of Solar Panels. Once that was done we received, again very timely, an estimate of what would be the best recommendation of panels. I am VERY PROUD to tell you that as of today, we are fully operational by 35 Solar Panels. STRAIGHT UP SOLAR is an excellent company. They are very personable and very informed.

Overall this was a very good experience. Everyone I met was friendly and professional. They are all knowledgeable and willing to take their time to answer any question you have. Do know that this is a event that takes some time. I signed the contract in late Sept 2012. The local electric utility (AMEREN) then took about 30 days for the review cycle before they approved it. Ordering the material an...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I contracted with Straight Up Solar for a 7.68 kw electric system on the roof of my home. I had reviewed several companies & chose Straight Up Solar. They were very easy to deal with, answered all my questions & were informative without being pushy. They handle all the permits, set up the inspections & coordinate with you on the inspection dates. The installation was performed in mid-December 2012. The last inspection was completed on Dec 31, 2012. The local utillity installed the bi-directional meter on January 18, 2013 & I turned the system at 1:30 p.m. the same day when I came home from work. The system is working fine to date.
