  • American Array Solar
    5.0
    I found American Array searching online and I was surprised the quote was already a much better deal compared to everything I had received. Then they brought a great financing option and executed the project really fast and with high efficiency and quality. My experience was great and that's why I recommend American Array

    Future Energy Savers Review Sales Rep: Briana Burnette We recently decided that we wanted to go solar as a way reduce our carbon footprint, do something good for our environment and save money in the process. I am not one to go into a big financial decision like this lightly, so I did my research. I started the beginning of May, the first thing that I did was reach out to my network of friends to get referrals as I was not really sure where to start. Future Energy Savers was a referral and one of 4 companies that I had consultations with. I met with each company, complete with a list of pressing questions, I wanted to compare apples to apples, so I asked the same questions to each company. I was so excited about the prospect of solar and I liked each of the companies, but as I learned more, the list was reduced from 4 to 2 contenders. One company was eliminated because they kept pushing the lease option, which is not something that we wanted and the second company had only been in business for 4 years. One of our criteria points was the company be knowledgeable, experienced and not a fly by night company. In essence, we wanted a company that had been in business for at least as long as the warranty they offer, which is typically 25 years. Ultimately, the other company was also eliminated and the last one standing was FES. Below are a few of the reasons that we went with them: • US made panels • 25-year warranty • .33 degradation per year on panels • 10 years of system monitoring • Panels made for extreme weather • Seasonal rain is enough to clean the panels, no extra maintenance required • They are experienced in solar and roofing • They have been in business for 43 years • System is fully upgradeable, so adding a battery or more panels later is an option • They use a PV Link Optimizer, which is newer inverter technology, these are NOT heat sensitive • They have a $15,000 bond for the warranty My sales representative with FES was Briana Burnette, I met with her on 5/29/21, and she was wonderful. She fully explained solar, the process, what to expect, the True Up Statement at the end of the year, etc. She was very patient and even answered questions a few times, if needed, to make sure that I had a full understanding. She also did not mind if I texted with additional questions as I analyzed the information to ensure that we were making the best decision for our family. There was absolutely no pressure, just education to help us make an informed decision on how to proceed. Once we made our decision to go with FES, she came back out to sign all the paperwork, answered additional questions and even re-explained a few things to my husband, who had not attended any of the meetings. The next step was the pre-site evaluation to ensure the system size, number of panels, etc., would work for our house. A few days later, I spoke with Rob regarding this pre-site evaluation. He also answered my questions and emailed me the schematic to show me where the 16 panels would be placed. I wanted to make sure the placement was aesthetically pleasing and that I was fully informed on what to expect with installation. From there, the information was sent to SMUD for review/approval and then on to the permitting process. FES took care of getting all of the permits and it happened very timely. Our installation happened on Friday, 7/16/21. The crew was 15 minutes early, which I appreciated. They were very friendly, knowledgeable and patient. At the end of the install, I was shown how to use the equipment and all of my remaining questions were answered. From my perspective, it was a very smooth install, although, the guys ran into a few issues, but they were very professional and got the job done in spite of this. It is 7/21/21 as I begin writing this review and I have just installed the Generac PWR View app on my phone. It is very basic, so it should not be difficult to learn. The first screen has a visual that shows the amount of solar, in kWh being produced real-time, followed by how much electricity our house is using, and if we are selling excess back to SMUD or if we are supplementing with energy from the grid. There is also a day, week, month and year view where you can see all the details of energy production. This will be a good tool to monitor as we opted not to purchase a battery at this point. Instead, we went with a little bit bigger system that we could grow into. We want to monitor for a year and see if a battery is necessary, we are not expecting to need one, but the system is fully upgradeable if we decide to go that way later. We are waiting for the few last steps to be fully online with solar. There will be an inspection in a few weeks to ensure that everything was installed properly and up to code. I am not worried because I feel like FES is top notch. And, after that, SMUD will need to come out and install a SMART meter so that we can start earning credit on the energy we are producing and not using. Update: Mitchell from FES called on 7/22/21 to set up the inspection. The first attempt did not happen due to a conflict with the city inspector. So, the inspection actually happened on Tuesday, 7/27/21. It was a virtual inspection, so Mitchell came out, explained what would happen and then had this meeting with the inspector. Everything passed without issue. The solar system did need to be turned off, which I was not thrilled with, we just got it and it had to be turned off. This is because it needed to be offline when SMUD comes out to install the SMART meter. I am just disappointed that we are not able to use our solar during the hot August days, but I understand the reasoning behind it. I am just anxious to start seeing the full benefits of our solar system. Hurry up SMUD and contact us to install the SMART meter. SMUD came out on 8/10/21 to install the SMART meter, I then contacted FES and Mitchell came out the same day to turn the system back on for us. While doing this, he noticed that 3 of the 16 panels were offline. As a result, we needed to get on the schedule to have someone come out and look at the system to find out why this was happening. Throughout the course of a month, FES had a repair tech come out three times before our system was fully online and running in peak performance. It was completely fixed on 9/21/21. The first time the repair tech came out, he made some adjustments and according to the Generac app, all 16 panels were performing. The next day when I was monitoring, solar just stopped producing altogether. I called and spoke to Thomas and he contacted Generac to troubleshoot. Apparently, the inverter has a safety mode to protect the system and it kicked into action after the first modification to the system was completed. It was a quick fix and Generac was able to reset the system on their side and we were back producing solar. A few days went by and I did not feel that the system was producing as it should, so I contacted Thomas again. He did review our system on his side and stated that something was still not right with the PV Link, so he sent another repair tech out to fix it. Again, he made a few adjustments and everything seemed to be working properly when he left. I continued to monitor and the system was still not in the kWh range per hour, so I reached back one more time, this time I spoke with Pat. He did some research and confirmed that I was correct and sent the repair tech out that day to fix the issue. He looked at the entire system this time and determined that there were extra clips used in the installation process and that was what was causing the issue. He had to rework the entire system, but when he left the system was fully functional everything has been producing at peak performance ever since, again this happened on 9/21/21. Now, the reason I documented these initial system issues is because I want to point out the great customer service that was provided and the quick turnaround time. Every time I called, if I was not able to speak with someone, my call was returned within 24-48 hours and a repair tech was sent out within 1-3 days each time. I know they are busy, so I appreciated the quick turnaround time. Believe me when I say, I was evaluating the service I received with every interaction because I will not recommend a company to friends and family where I am not completely satisfied. I am confident that I have and will continue to have a solid partnership with FES for years to come and overall, I have been very impressed. Additionally, I have several friends that are interested to see how solar goes for us before they pull the trigger, but I have to say the process with FES was smooth and I look forward to many, many years of reduced bills and protecting our environment. So, if you are interested in solar, what are you waiting for? Call Briana at FES, her cell phone is, 916-412-9354, let her know that Terrie Hammad sent you and she will give a discount. Everyone loves discounts, right? Even though we have not been producing at peak for an entire month yet, here are the % decreases that we have realized on our bills, comparing last year to this year: 07/22/21 – 08/19/21: 37% decrease | 08/20/21 - 09/20/21: 41% decrease If you are still not convinced, there is currently a $300 rebate through SMUD and 26% Federal Tax Credit right now for solar. In the coming years the Federal Tax Credit will most likely be reduced until it is gone, so it is a really good time to pull the trigger. Just saying …

    the company has been a pleasure to work with, I have a new pool and want to be able to use it year round, and I have been heating the pool for two months and still no bill from the major electric company

  • American Array Solar
    5.0
    It went extremely well! Omar and I designed the system and after nearly one year we achieved the power we designed for. I incurred a minor problem with some panels producing 30% less than their neighboring panels. Adam got on this problem immediately. He sent out his crew to replace these panels, then their inverters at no cost under the 30-year warranty. And, American Array was cost competitive and a little less than 2 other vendors. I would use American Array again and recommend them highly

  • Connected Technology
    5.0
    Connected Technology was so very easy to work with during my solar installation process. Five (5) companies were interviewed for the project, not all submitted an estimate or followed up as promised. Conversely, Connected Technology was always responsive and stood out to be the best because of their customer service. They did not disappoint. They stayed on top of the project, kept me informed at every step and answered all my questions. They provided photos of the work-in-process and the completed project without a request for it. I was able to see how the roof was penetrated to secure the panels without climbing a ladder. Actual roof work was done in one day. The panels are not visible from the front of the house. The conduits are hidden in the attic and under the eave with little showing on the exterior of the house. I am really happy that Connected Technology did this job. They will be doing the battery backup installation after the backorder is filled

    A few months ago I was referred by a relative about this company. They had done their solar panels in Saratoga a few months prior to mine and when I heard that they had programs to make that happen for people like me....I couldn't believe it. I was VERY skeptical because I knew NOTHING about solar panels. I have been in this home for almost 2 years. This is my FIRST time being a homeowner. I am very protective of it because it is just me and my cats in the home. It's been 2 months since the completion of the project and I have to say that I am thankful for this company and the project managers who helped me along the way. There was never a moment I felt worried and I was always given follow ups every week. I have never been so attended to in my life! Thank you SF Green. Our next project will be a new HVAC this spring

    We had put off installing solar panels for the past three years. Our neighbors had told us about using Future Energy Savers as they too were thinking about installing solar and had Kate Newby out to give them a bid. We scheduled an appointment with Future Energy Savers and the company’s sales staff member Kate Newby, came out to our home. Kate showed us the benefits and cost savings with installing solar panels. We also discussed our current energy usage with PH&E and how the costs were going to continue to increase with PH&E. We were sold. The installation occurred about two weeks after signing the contract. The installation was completed in two days by Wade and Matt. Wade and Matt were nothing but professional and took time to demonstrate and explain the product to us. The project manager, Kirk, provided excellent customer service. He kept us informed of the procedures. He took care of everything including handling the permit, dealing with the HOA, and scheduling. Although it took PG&E a couple of months to get us up and running on their solar program, we have seen increasing savings each month. The month with solar our PG&E bill was down $100, our second bill was down still another $100, and our last bill was $0.00. Future Energy Savers is an A+ organization with professional staff members assisting throughout the process

    We could not be happier with the company and the entire process of installing solar panels in our home. A fair number of companies visited our West Sacramento home but we chose Future Energy Savers for their expertise and professionalism. Our sales representative, Dale Groat, was so thorough, knowledgable, and great to work with. The installation itself was done in about 5 hours and the service transfer to solar has been seamless. Ours was a very positive experience and we will not hesitate to recommend others to Future Energy Savers
