"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."

HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“They put solar panels on my roof. I am extremely Type 'A', and the workers are very Type 'A', so they did very well for me. I like everything neat, tidy, and perfect; and it was extremely neat and tidy and perfect. I would grade the overall experience with an A-.”

“From what's going on and what I'm saving, I had a very positive experience. I liked that the service was great. The way it turned out—I was a little leery about it—but everything turned out real great. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

“I don't have any problems. Solar Energy World came in like they said. The panels are on the house; they are producing the power like they said, and they charged me the amount they agreed to charge me for. I would grade the overall experience with an A. Quality of work—we've had some high winds, and it hasn't been ripped off the house. Customer service—I only talked to one of the people there. The sales lady I worked with was very nice and gave good knowledge. Punctuality—they came in at the time they said to install it. The lady came over when I asked her to, went over all the options, and gave me a free estimate. Came over not expecting nothing. Cleanliness—I didn't find no nails in my yard after they got done.”

I would grade the overall experience with an A+. We've recommended Solar Energy World to several people.”

That's been great. The original guy I worked with was not very good, but he's gone, so that's good. The panels are really good. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I've already recommended them several times.”

“The workmanship, their customer service, and the crew that they sent out to do install the solar panels, was great. You couldn't ask for a nicer group of people. They were very conscientious about making sure that they didn't track anything into the house. They were a high-end contractor. They're an A+ company. I've already recommended them.”

“I thought my salesperson was knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, easy to get in touch with, and not pushy. I enjoyed working with the administrative staff. They helped out with facilitating approval from the HOA, who was not super cooperative. It was a pretty smooth process, even though it was a lengthy process, but that wasn't their fault. They did everything they could do. We purchased the equipment from them, they facilitated the financing for the panels, they did the installation, and they managed the process of getting permits, getting permission, establishing a meter with my power company, etc. There was a lot of different moving parts, and they pretty much managed all of them. I would give them an A-. Expertise was an A for sure.”

“The sales representative was the main reason why I ended up doing the work with the company. He did a thorough job, not only in explaining the solar panels he was selling, but in explaining other people's solar panels as well. He let me know if it was a good fit for me or not a good fit for me. That was definitely great—A+. The quality of work was A+. The customer service was A+. And their punctuality was A+.”

“My experience was great. They have good personalities. They're good people to work with. They put solar panels on my roof. I'd rate them an A+.”

“They were great to work with. They did solar panel installation. They get an A+.”

“The man who came to explain everything did a very thorough job. And he always answered questions when we called back, even after it was done. We're satisfied with the overall outcome of the solar panels so far. We're still giving them feedback on the usage of it, so we're still kind of involved. They get an A. We have recommended them”

They made it so much easier for the consumer to get solar panels installed on my property. Everything went well. Overall, I would give them an A for my experience. The only thing I didn't like what that I called to get confirmation for arrival times and stuff like that, and I had to make a couple of calls to get an answer.”
