GES Solar installs photovoltaic (PV) solar electric systems in the Southeast United States. Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, GES Solar was formerly known as Green Earth Solar. According to its website, GES Solar is one of the oldest solar firms in the region specializing in solar electric systems.
GES Solar provides turnkey solar installation, handling the design, sale, installation, and maintenance of its clients’ solar electric systems. Its portfolio includes mostly commercial solar projects, but the company also handles agricultural, municipal, and residential solar projects. GES Solar designs and engineers both ground mount and roof mount solar power systems and can help businesses apply for solar incentives.
GES Solar provides prospective clients with a free solar electric system proposal, so customers know exactly what to expect in working with the company, both in terms of product and price.
GES Solar has an installation team that’s certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Professionals (NABCEP). NABCEP certification requires professionals to meet rigorous standards ensuring their knowledge and skills. GES Solar is also a member of TenneSEIA, the Tennessee Solar Energy Industries Association.
GES Solar has completed advanced photovoltaic training from Solar Energy International, and solar photovoltaic installation training from UNC Solar Center.
Additionally, GES Solar is a certified installer for Fronius Solutions, Sonnen, and LG Chem.
Some of GES Solar’s clients include the University of Tennessee, Vanderbilt University, the City of Knoxville, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the U.S. National Park Service, and the Knoxville Convention Center. These high-profile clients lend credibility to GES Solar’s work.
While many of the top solar companies offer 25-year warranties, GES Solar offers only a 5-year workmanship warranty on its solar electric systems. This is significantly shorter than what many of its competitors offer.
Many details that could help customers decide whether to work with GES Solar are missing from the company’s website. The website doesn’t include which specific panels and inverters GES Solar offers, how much its systems cost, what financing options are available, or what the warranty on the equipment is.
GES Solar offers a first-year revenue guarantee, but its website doesn’t explain what happens if its solar power system doesn’t generate revenue for its client.
