1st year as a Best Pick Call
"I became interested in renewables in general, and solar power specifically, when I learned about the risk posed by climate change. There was a time when the only reason to go solar was to help the environment. Today, the economics have changed dramatically, and solar power is not just cleaner power, it is also cheaper power!"

“Overall, i am happy with the company. The thing is from the sales point of view, all the way up to the delivery of the product which took about 5 months. Following up and communication was very minimum and that's a big problem. The communication with the sales front office to the customer. I already initiated the conversations then, they responded.”

“I would recommend if part of a co-op. I am unsure if done separately due to pricing. The process on a whole was amazing though. Just got our first bill with the panels up for the whole billing period and it was for the minimum legally allowed. Awesome!”

“I solicited four proposals/quotes before working with Solar Energy World. Solar Energy World had the best price, and as it turns out has also offered excellent service. I’m happy with the product we received and with the customer service. Not only am I likely to recommend Solar Energy World to a friend, I have already done so.”

“I have already recommended Solar Energy World to several friends and neighbors. The installation experience was fantastic, and everyone from the scheduling staff to the crew has been pleasant and knowledgeable. After hearing from the crew about their process, I feel confident we won't have any leaks or other issues with the work. And, I love checking the website to see how much energy our panels are generating. Five stars, would choose this company again.”

“My sales representative Jeff was wonderful from beginning to end and made me feel comfortable throughout the process. Before I decided to go to Solar Energy World I talked to several companies, I was not comfortable with them, I felt like they were too pushy.”

Review by

“Communication was terrible after we signed and paid the $6000 deposit. Emails and calls went unanswered. Our installation was 6 months after signing and paying that sum. When we received the final bill, we were asked for feedback. My email saying our experience was not good went unanswered. Only one supervisor who we finally reached was responsive.”

Review by

“The installation crew and the maintenance crew have been superb; they were sterling. There is a lot to be desired about the sales crew. There was no feedback in a timely fashion, it was distressing.”

“After 5 years of researching a solar option I fully realize that it is not an easy process to navigate through alone. SEW knows the ropes and managed to fill in all the "unk unks" (unknown unknowns) that can trip you up.. I have already recommended them to several interested parties...”

“The group that installed my solar panels were top notch. They did a real professional job. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by

“The reason for the rating is the first salesman was arrogant and took a long time to get the process completed. I was very disappointed with that. The next salesman was good and a gentleman, very courteous. But, the whole process took way too long.”

Review by

“I've had many companies contact me about placing solar panels on my roof, but when my neighbor showed me the ratings of the various companies in the area, I noted that Solar Energy World got a top 5 star rating. When she installed solar panels and had such a successful time working with the Solar Energy crew and was so very satisfied with the results, I decided to sign up for my current project. I've been pleasantly surprised, from the beginning to the current time, as Solar Energy representatives walked me through all the steps, assured me that what was happening was right on target. I felt empowered the day I actually pushed the level to start up my solar power system!!!”

Review by
12/09/2021

“Solar Energy World is a well-oiled machine when it comes to solar installs. Work is distributed to subject experts and they do their jobs well. However, I think an influx of work over the past year and some hiccups with our process caused this optimized system to break down. However, staff members were professional and respectful of all of my concerns. Both install and administrative staff were some of the most professional and kind people I have worked with. I think they might benefit from hiring some more of these fantastic people to keep up with demand.”
