"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!"

“Price through Solar Coop Arlington was great, and their "step by step" on install itself was great. After actual panel install, however, not so smooth. I had to call in to find out why no computer app (to read electricity generated), and was told "oh, we have to schedule inspection with Arlington county. So I asked them to schedule, and then asked them again, when would install actually be up and running. Then they said "Dominion VA Power" had to check meter, etc. Obviously, SEW doesn't control Arlington County or the electric company, but it would have been helpful to know these steps were coming, to have had them happen without my phone follow up -- and to have better guidelines on timelines. I've now had to e-mail several times to make sure I haven't been forgotten, and I'm still waiting to actually use my system. IF the install Crew Leader had just left me with a paper saying : 1) "you need to call to schedule Arlington County inspection, you'll get an e-mail confirming ok" and then 2) SEW will contract "your electric company which will review the meter and bring this all on-line, again, sending you a confirmation e-mail that all is ok and "3) "you'll get an e-mail alerting you to the computer app to review your electricity output". Each stop could take (a week or two?!?), and then you'll be up and running.”

“Everyone I dealt with, from the salesperson to the crew, was very professional. They cleaned up everything, and they were done in one day. If a piece of trash hit the ground, they picked it up immediately. They were very conscientious.”

“Excellent company in all aspects (price, customer service, prompt installations etc.), Excellent quality Solar Panels and Extremely responsive professional staff.”

Review by

“Solar Energy World was not the least expensive quote we found but it's arguably the best value. Only time will tell, of course. We are impressed by the installation crew, the responsiveness of our "solar analyst" (sales rep), the cool app, and the warranties (installation, product, projected power generation, and prospects for the company's long term health). It took longer than expected to complete the process (7 months) but the product, the app, and the installation were better than expected. Highly recommended.”

“Sales process was fairly smooth. Contract terms needed some work. Installation was timely, but installation crew could have done more to police the yard, as various wrappers etc were found after they left.”

“My salesperson is Micheal Blair. Micheal has been absolutely fantastic to work with he always returns calls to any questions that I may have. The crews that came to my house to install the panels and the electrical were all very friendly and professional, they protected my property and cleaned up after themselves. I have already recommended Micheal / Solar Energy World to several neighbors and I know of at least 2 of them that are under contract for solar panels thru Micheal.”

“Throughout the entire process, even well after install concluded (it is now months after), SEW and Mr. Tobin kept me well informed of the process and helped me work with my HOA, Dominion Power, financing, and now with my SREC broker. This was (by far) the easiest large expense (home, car, home improvement) I've made.”

“Everyone was responsive and helpful during the installation phase. Hiccups were not their fault. But post-installation has ben difficult. I had no experience or knowledge to help me cope with the broker etc. Had to rely on my son for help. Could have used more guidance.”

“As too many MD contractors, this company has one major issue - A Lack of Communication! They did a great job overall, although delayed for few months, and I wish the communication was better from their admin team. The Analyst Eric Winkler was just great!”
