The Good

The Bad

  • Lack of Leases and PPAs
  • Limited Availability

Lack of Leases and PPAs

Gimenergy allows customers to purchase a solar energy system with cash or through a loan. However, the company does not offer leases or power purchase agreements (PPAs), which are both popular options within the industry.

Limited Availability

Currently, Gimenergy's service area is its several offices located in various cities throughout California, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, Riverside, Sacramento, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Orange, Bakersfield, Santa Clarita, Porter Ranch, and Stockton.

Reply from Gimenergy

Hi Joe, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our profile. We understand your concern about us not offering leases. In our profile it states that we only offer purchase and purchase financing. Recent data shows that leasing a system is not beneficial to the clients. You do not receive the tax credit and the tax credit has to be sold to investors in order for leasing companies to make there money which in turn raises the cost to you as a consumer. Our company is about giving the customer the most cost beneficial system so they are actually seeing a return on investment. Your review only reflects a product that we do not offer and not our service as a company which we pride ourselves in offering the most out standing service when it comes to pricing, installation, and after installation service. We hope that you can reconsider your one star review.
