5th year as a Best Pick Call
"I knew that buildings were responsible for 71 percent of the USA's greenhouse gases, and I wanted to do more to help leave behind a healthy environment for my children. I could see that demand for solar would grow as electricity costs continued to rise and more people became aware that going solar would reduce their utility bills."

“I gush about the interview process, my solar analyst Austin and the entire process to everyone I meet. The monetary incentive to refer customers to go solar is a bonus, however I feel excellence should be rewarded. Jessie Burden has expressed interest and I have provided him Austin's contact information. I plan to follow up with documentation that my electric bill has improved as a result of the solar process. however I”

“Many thanks to the Solar Energy professionals who handled my 40 panel installation project, Paul, Melanie, Matt and especially Jesse who was the best crew chief ever; he kept me up to speed on the installation progress and really made it go seamless and virtually painless in terms of intrusiveness... Jesse deserves a commendation award.”

“Solar Energy World has been an excellent choice for upgrading our solar. With their expertise we have increased our ability to use the sun to produce the majority of our energy needs. Their communications were informative, polite, and responsive. The installation crew leader and his right hand man provided us with updates throughout the day. I appreciated their professional communications that always let us know what to expect during this process. They were respectful of my home during the work day and left my home the way they found it. They checked in when they arrived and notified us when they were finished for the day.Paul Antoshak, our Solar Analyst, has been great keeping us informed throughout the entire process from the site assessment to the Baltimore County inspection!”

“All of the folks associated with the company have been very pleasant and professional. However, the delays have been crazy. The system was supposed to be up and running by 12/31 and here we are 2/4 still waiting for it to actually work, even though it has been installed. I think the time estimates need to be more accurate when selling these systems.”

“Initial meetings with my solar Analyst, Joe were informative and professional. We were very excited to go green and proceed with our residential solar project. That was June 2019. From there the fun ran out and never returned. No updates or comm's for months at a time. Solar Energy World grossly miscalculated the panels they can install and the KwH we can get from the sun. This set us back more months. Now on hot sunny, summer days, we'd be lucky to get 70% of our electricity from solar, at best. The remainder of need we're stuck with separate billing and provider, JCP&L. Who do we call with an issue? Don't know. Billing discrepancies or confusion? They win, We lose. Below expected production? We can't prove a thing but better pay everyone on time for the next 25 years. Approaching February now. When will we get the PTO? Don't know. Likely not before April. Wait ten months with too few status updates for 2/3 solar power (at best) and multiple, disparate providers for the next 25 years? Perhaps 2 out of 5 stars is generous.”

“I had estimates for solar power in 2015 and in 2019. Prices have gone down 30% since 2015. Solar Energy World (SOE) had the best quotes for both years . I am glad I waited because of the lower cost and higher quality of materials. My install included ground mount and roof mounted solar panels. Everyone from SOE was professional and patient with all my questions. Our Solar Analyst, Jamie was great. I took pictures and followed every step of the installation. It took 4 guys and 4 days to install my system. Their work and material quality was top notch. The roof panels are all black, blend in and look clean with no exposed conduit. The ground mounts look strong, beautiful and clean. I actually looked into installing these panels myself. With the lower cost and 30% tax credit, it was not worth it. I like that SOE is local and has a great reputation. I have and would recommend Solar Energy World for your future solar panel installation.”
