Calsolar is awesome. The sale people were very informative and answered any questions we had. They were fast to get it installed and running. The installation crew were very good and cleaned up the property after installing. I will definitely use they again.

They have a lot of experience in roofing, so they know where to place the panels so they won't cause a leak or any damage to the roof. They were pretty good. They broke 3 tiles, but they replaced them and were honest enough to let me know about it.

The solar system itself has exceeded all reasonable expectations I had for solar. It produces about 25% more electricity than his conservative advanced projections indicated that it would produce prior to installation. This is due in part to super efficiency of individualized and quot;micro-invertersand quot; dedicated each solar panel. Moreover, his attention to finish work and all other details of the job were particularly meticulous. The solar system was very competitively priced. Prior to solar, my electric bills exceeded an average of $350 per month. Now I actually consume more electricity yet I don't expect my ANNUAL cost for electricity to exceed $200. I may even receive a credit from my utility instead. Richard was present on-site frequently during the installation, ensuring his workers were thorough and attentive. I think this kind of proactively engaged oversight is an important element of a well run company. Prior to and subsequently to hiring Richard Patterson to install my solar, I have had the opportunity to see his installations and speak with some of his owners, all of whom are as pleased with his service as I am. I've learned though observation that Richard carefully chooses the materials and components himself for each job to best match the individual circumstances of each installation. In my business, I have had the opportunity to work with other solar system installers and to see many solar installations. I find Spectrum installations to be superior to everything else I have seen out there in residential and ground mounted solar systems. You don't see long bright silver pipes of conduit stretching across roofs, when Spectrum performs for installation, for instance. Spectrum Solar typically runs those under the roof, inside the attic or paints them the color of the background roof or wall so that they inconspicuously blend into the visual appearance of the home. I think any person who compares Spectrum Solar Winds installations to other installations, as I have been able to do, would agree with me. Not only does he pride himself to be a bit of a craftsman in an industry that generally just rolls out the basic installations as quickly and roughly as they can, but he is very diligent and efficient in getting the installations completed in a timely manner. My installation took just two weeks, but that was a bit of an exception because I pushed a bit for an extra quick install. This company also specializes in heating and and in integrating total custom energy efficiency product and solutions for one's home. I highly recommend Richard Patterson and Spectrum Solar Winds.

Very well. The salesman didn't put any pressure on me to buy. Then the installers did an excellent job. No complaints at all.

We began the process in late September 2012. The proposal arrived quickly and we agreed on the options and signed the final documents.. The installation work was scheduled a few weeks later. It took about 3 days to complete the installation. The installers arrived when they said they would and finished in good time. They cleaned up everything thoroughly. As a former project manager, I can say they exceeded my expectations.

They were very professional and responded very quickly during the project. They took care of all the permitting process, came to the job at the exact time they said the would, completed work in one day and left the site clean. And always returned phone calls promptly.

The installation started at 8 am as scheduled and was completed in 5 hours, leaving me a running solar system at 1 PM. The installer explained every aspect of the system that I wanted to know. He segregated my important house circuits and rewired them to the emergency panel which is battery powered on loss of utility supply. He explained the use of the control panel which has 5 operating modes at my control, and the use of the Generac Powerview app which gives the daily energy production, house consumption as well as output to the Utility. I now have near zero utility input on the worst summer day. I feel comfort in the system's backup capability in case of a utility blackout. My battery now covers my house loads and shields me from rising utility rates during peak hours. The components of the system are warranted for 25 years, except the battery which goes for just 10 years. Overall I am very satisfied with the system.

I had talked to many solar companies and specially the big names. Then i talked to Daniel from Gold Rush Energy Solutions. He was very nice and polite and listened to all my questions and explained me all the advantages of the solar system and its different options with the solar panels available in the market and the invertor systems. He was not really pushy like all other solar companies will definitely do. Once i finalized the system with them, it took 1-2 weeks only to get it approved and permits and installation. Also approval from PG&E was also very quick and my system was running perfectly as it was explained and the way it should be. Also the installation crew were very professional and finished up the job on time and also cleaned up everything and also painted the conduits and pipes used on the wall. They were professional and neat as they worked. Also the online monitoring system is working perfectly as expected. I have seen the installation for other solar systems in my neighborhood and i could see the difference. I will definitely recommend GOLD RUSH ENERGY SOLUTIONS than the big companies, as you will get good service and personal attention than the corporate service which you don't know who you are talking to and might be different salesperson every few months. I will definitely recommend to all my friends. Finally A HAPPY CUSTOMER.

Valley Solar Inc

Valley Solar was one of the few companies that we talked to that actually listened to what we wanted. We wanted a solar system with a backup battery to protect against the PG&E "safety" blackouts. Most companies just proposed their standard "cookie cutter" solar system with no battery. When we reminded them that we wanted a battery the usual response was something like, "We should be able to add a battery to this system" - not very confidence inspiring. Valley Solar came with a plan that included exactly what we were asking for. They also had a no-battery system to show us in case we wanted to save some money. The installation went smoothly. The crew was very professional and did a clean and good looking job. They were always ready to explain what they were doing and why they were doing it. There were only a couple of negatives. The first was the length of time it took from signing the contract to getting the system installed. The contract was signed on November 26, 2019. It stated an estimated start date of January 15, 2020 and an estimated completion date of February 15, 2020. The actual installation did not take place until the first week of March. The second negative involved the inverter which they chose to use. It was made by Solar Edge, and can be programmed in to function in different ways. One thing that can be changed is the amount of battery energy to reserve for backup protection. This is something that we would like to change at times. If we are going to be away from home for a while, we would like to set this value much higher than when we are at home. The priorities of how the solar energy is split between being used in our home, charging the battery, and sending to PG&E may need changing as PG&E's rate structure changes. The problem is that no provision is made for the customer (who is the owner of the system) to make these changes. We have to call Valley Solar whenever a change has to be made. This makes changing the battery reserve when we go away impractical. We had Valley Solar change the settings when PG&E switched us from the "Tiered" rate plan to the "Time-of-Use" plan. But what about future changes, if Valley Solar, or Solar Edge, is no longer in business? Maybe all inverters have this same problem, which would mean that this is not the fault of Valley Solar. Despite the negatives, we are pleased with Valley Solar, and would recommend them to anyone considering solar energy.

Got a phone call the morning of the install saying they were running 45 minutes behind, only showed up 30 minutes late. Nice to the call and not have to wonder where they were. The work men showed up and gave me an estimate of the time required and they were done early. Good follow up call the next day to see how the system was working for me. A few tiles were broken (not sure you could do it without some breaking). Mid State replaced the tiles that day. Could not be happer with the job done.

Recent Review: We are so excited that NRG helped us to install Solar Panels on our house in San Francisco! Their entire team was wonderful from their first presentation providing us with all the information to the completion of the installation. Their installation staff was wonderful and completed the project without a hitch. Nicole Greenwood our customer service rep kept us informed of each step along the way and made everything easy. We had gotten estimates from two other companies and are glad we went with NRG. No worries and a wonderful experience. We will recommend NRG without reservation. Thanks to your whole team! Marge B.

Recent Review: They explained to us very detailed inf. about solar installation processes, savings amount based on our current usage. They handled all details (applied for permit; met an auditor ) and installed solar panels very professionally and efficiently. The job was done in the time frame as promised. The system runs smoothly. Our monthly electricity bill has come down significantly. In summary, we are happy with the service and the installation and the price is the lowest one. We are definitely recommend LifeStyle Solar for anyone.

Recent Review: We met Robert Pouncey from Sunpower by The Solar Quote at a local home and garden show. We had been interested in having solar installed on our steel frame home for a couple of years, but just couldn't find the right contractor. Robert was very friendly and professional, and extremely knowledgeable of their solar product. He answered all of our questions. The quote that he provided was exactly what we ended up with--no surprises. He even showed up at the home on the day of the installation to ensure we were ok with everything and continued to follow up with us after the install to see if we had any questions re: the install, functionality, and/or paperwork with the local energy provider. We def recommend Robert from Sunpower by The Solar Quote!
