No Leases or PPAs

Dino Marsili San Ramon, CA

Overall, I am a very satisfied customer. I was looking to purchase a high quality solar system from a reputable company with a high quality warranty. Canopy delivered on all those fronts. My only gripe was their communication throughout the process. There were several instances when I was not contacted (despite my PLEADING for communication) when a Canopy representative showed up without me knowing. With crime escalating, it is uncomfortable answering the door to a stranger. If I did not answer, a serious time window would have been lost. In fact, I heard of the installation date from the rep that came unannounced with the panels. I discussed this with the company and they promised me they would improve this for future customers. This was the only real concern that I had. Otherwise, the installation was great, the American made Mission Solar Panels are pumping out power, the work by the installer was great, I am getting the 30% IRS credit just in time, they are poised to honor the 25 year warranty, and the price was good. Beware the price may surprise you but it seems to be worth it. Great experience overall!

Albert did a great job installing the system as I wanted done. All system components except the solar panels inside the garage. This was a custom installation. The system has be working as promised. PG+E will not let a system produce more than 110% than what you have been using. Also PG+E will put you on timed tier system. We chose 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm. There are other plans. Canopy made out the proper work for use to be approved to use our system in the PG+E system. The only complaints was the fact that the system delivered was not complete at the start of the job. They had an UBER driver and FEDEX deliver some of the items. I had to convince one of their personal where I wanted the components to be placed. I can monitor the system from the solar energy web site. Their sales person(Steve T.) was really helpful when we had problems, resolved quickly. Had the system operating for the last week , works as advertised.
