Solar Panel Installation reviews in Schenectady

    Old wall was removed and new sheetrock installed in 1 and 1/2 days. Old wall also contained electrical wiring (switch and outlet), insulation, and heating venting; so care was taken when wall was removed. Contractor was very neat and clean upon entering and leaving work site.

    Kasselman Solar did a fantastic job installing our new solar electric system. I highly recommend them to anyone that is considering a solar install. They don't do solar leases which, in my opinion, look great up front but are only good if you have no other options. You will save more by buying your system outright. And if you have to sell your home, the installed system will be considered an asset instead of a liability. Everyone that I worked with at Kasselman was excellent. They were on time with everything and actually installed the system ahead of schedule. The original timeline was for the system to be installed in six to eight weeks after the contract was finalized. They actually did our install a little over five weeks from the original arrangement. Our up front cost was $19,494.00. After tax rebates, our net cost will be $8,772.30. Kasselman employs electricians for their main business. During our system install, there wasn't enough room in our old main electric panel to do a 'side line tap'. So they replaced my entire main panel including all of the breakers and didn't charge anything extra! I offered to pay something extra as I know this was a hugh expense and a benefit to me. They refused to accept any additional money for the extra work! I can't say enough about what a great job they did. They exceeded all of our expectations! Our old system was installed by GroSolar: We already had a 4.59k solar system installed nine years ago. That system provides about half of our electric needs for each year. The old system uses two string inverters to convert DC power to AC power before it feeds into our main power panel. They did an excellent job on that install as well and it still performs very well today considering it is using the older technology. Our new system that was installed by Kasselman Solar: We added another 5.41k system in May of 2016. The system utilizes microinverters on each of 19 - 285 watt SolarWorld panels, made in Hillsboro, Oregon (USA). This newer technology allows each panel to operate independently and operate on different plains. This means the panels can be at different angles compared to other panels. If there is shading on one panel, it doesn't impact the output of other panels. This was a big consideration for us because our old system was installed on one roof all together. Our new system has panels on different roofs, facing in different directions and at different angles to the sun. The electricity is converted to AC, by a microinverter at each panel, fed to a central box and then into our main electric panel. We can monitor our system on our phones. Also, Kasselman monitors each panel individually and can identify any panel issues remotely. The system has been running for almost a month and our electric meter is flying backwards! Adam Jordan was the main person I worked with to get my contract finalized. He and everyone at Kasselman are top notch! Between our two systems, we should get about 100% of our electricity from solar every year!

    I have always been interested in having solar installed and was very impressed with Real Goods Solar. Len the sales rep was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer each and everyone one of our questions. Jenny the project manager was very polite and always followed up promptly if I left her a message. James"Chris" the project foreman and his crew were extremely friendly, polite and professional. Easily the most professional company I have ever worked with. Excellent customer service top to bottom. The work they did on my house looks great. I'm waiting now on a private inspector and national grid to swap out my meter so it will still be a few weeks before I can get the system turned and running but I'm excited and can't wait. The whole process took several months due to planning, designing the system, waiting on the tax credits from NY and the Feds but they did all the work in getting building permits from the town of glenville so there was very little I needed to do. They kept me updated on how everything was progessing so there were no surprises which I really appreciated. Very happy with the entire experience. Thank you! Also I put $0 in the amount paid as I don't start paying my solar lease until the system is turned on. So far I have not had to pay anything out of pocket.
