4th 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."

“Paul Antoshak”

Review by
08/18/2019

“The installation was fantastic the installers took great care to align the panels and do a great job. Since then the service management has been lousy, a month delay getting a replacement inverter box that now appears to have failed again, commitments were made to return calls about pending appointments but the calls were never made and the repair person showed up. "I'll call you back either way" never happens. No status on replacement parts, the inverter that was replaced was replaced with "spares" that the supplier said were okay but clearly were not. Frankly the service department (other than the field people who are great) needs to get training in customer service and expediting parts. Or maybe they just need to stick to installation and find another firm that can handle repairs.”

“I would like to recognize the gentleman that does the installation for his exceptional service. If the salesperson would follow up quickly, we would have a lot more solar homes in the community. My in-laws are angry with me for recommending them. Something needs to be done in the sales department.”

“I would like to recognize everyone. They were all great, from the salesperson to the electrician who helped on the box and explained everything to me. We had a problem with the firmware regarding the box, but everyone was very knowledgeable. The only issue was the software wasn't working and they had to downloaded firmware. It took two hours, but it was just a software issue and it was resolved.”

“Paul , my salesman”

Review by
12/07/2018

“All of them were incredible. The manager for the crew on site, the engineer Eric, and the Sales guy Eric were all great. They explained everything, showed me how everything worked, and are absolutely wonderful. The crew lead on installation was also great. They are the best crew I've ever had doing work on my house. The manager was great and kept me updated on schedule delays as well.”

Review by
12/06/2018

“The crew members did an amazing job and they were really open to some of our suggestions. We would like to add that Mr. Geoff Mirkin, the CEO of the company seriously considered all the things that went wrong and he spent a good amount of time with us to learn and recover from their mistakes. As customers we really appreciate that.”

“Bryan Hacker is fantastic”

Review by
11/30/2018

“Met and exceeded my expectations so far in all areas, most especially the level of post installation customer care. This is where most contractors/services fail. Most are usually good up to install but good luck if you ever need anything from them 4-5 months after. I needed some assistance from Solar Energy World LLC about 5 months after they've done the work. Just one phone call and they took care of my need beyond my expectation. That is customer service at its finest driven by CUSTOMER RELATION”
