The project management was good and the installation went perfectly. We are saving money. My only complain is that there should be something like payrolls for what is spent monthly. I think there should be an explanation for why they have claimed this and that. They should implement this now on a monthly basis.

They had the best pricing and the best service. Project management was good, they explained everything. The supervisor also helped me out. They took me through every step of the way and told me how to work everything out. For installation everyone showed up on time and their customer service was really good. They were very knowledgeable and got me up and started. It was a really good experience.

The installation was very easy and professional. Now I can use my air-conditioner without worrying about the cost or the electric company. It is economical and I think it's something that everybody should try in order to go green.

Everybody was aware of what is going on. When I called to find out when the folks would be coming to install or the status of my roof, I was always answered right away. They were fast, clean, and obviously effective installing the panels. I have a much lower electric bill, I got my money back from the power company.

They did a fine job of keeping things on track and keeping the project moving forward. Installation was very smooth. My electric bills in the past summer months was basically non existent because I chose to purchase the system. The only thing is that I could have used a little more support after the install. I'd liked it if they had given me some more support in understanding the SRAC and how to use solar better.

Project management has been awesome and the installation of the panels was fantastic. I have seen a reduction in the PepCo bill. We've bee fighting with them for 3 months too give us proper credit, it's just the local providers that are jerking us around.

I haven't had any issues with them. The installation process was perfect. I'm just paying for the panels and they cancel out my electric bills. The one issue that I had was the guy who signed me up. He tried to make some promises that he couldn't keep. Once I signed the papers and committed he didn't come back or said anything. Just make sure your sales reps don't promise things that they can't follow through with.

The service and installation have been good. The only thing is that we weren't notified with enough time about the time when the installation was going to happen. Other than that our BG and E bills are going down significantly. The only feedback that I have is to make sure that some of the discussions that take place with the sales man are reiterated to the people that install the system.

I really don't have any complaints compared to other energy companies I've dealt with prior to them. There was an excellent communication across the board, and I'm not paying the typical electric bill anymore. As a matter of fact, I received a refund check from my utility provider.

I like the financing package that was provided. All I have to pay is for the solar panels, and the cost savings they were able to show me. Plus, their Project Management Team was excellent and well organized. They had good communication skills. I actually like the way the panels look on the house. They just did a great job with the installation.

My energy bills are lower! It was very quick to install, and efficient as well. I liked that they were the leaders when it came to solar systems. They are a reputable company, and have a good Angie's List rating. Plus, they have the option to prepay for it in the future, if you don't want to buy it right away.

I thought they were the best deal, so I decided to go solar with them. The major benefit I noticed was the lower cost of my electricity bill. Besides that, I just wish they could periodically come and check the equipment. just to make sure it's working alright.

The fact that we're helping the environment and consuming less fossil fuel is great! Plus, our contact was always available for us, and answered all of our questions. He was very professional and organized. I didn't expect the panels to be installed so quickly. I was very pleased with the company and every person and personnel that I worked with. They did an excellent job.

I think the installation process went very smoothly. The thing I like best about it was that they consulted me about where they would have to run the pipes containing the wires, and the placing of other things. Overall, I'm very pleased. I think they do a good job and I'm happy with their work. I would happily recommend them.

Installing the system was exceptional! They have everything under control. Their experienced technicians installed my panels in short time without a problem. Plus, they explained the permit process, and the only issue I had is after the unit was installed, with the inspector. My electrical bill was a lot less expensive. Overall, I think they're pretty professional. They seem to know what they're doing.

Overall, I think this is a good company to work with- I reviewed solar providers and shopped around quite a bit before signing with them, and their employees are hard working with good intentions. My rating is skewed on the low end, however, because the installed system delivers approx 20% lower kWh than promised when i signed because the original estimate greatly overestimated the number of panels that could be placed on the southern-facing roof. When this was discussed with me prior to install, the discussion focused entirely on the aesthetics of panel placement on the house, and I was not informed that the production would be less and would no longer cover my annual power consumption. Solar Energy World finally explained this to me 6 months later when I called to ask why production was less than expected. They apologized profusely for the "poor communication", but could not provide any remedy, claiming that their production warranties are tied to the number of panels purchased, and not the annual production estimate that was at the top of my contract. I do not believe the company was intentionally misleading- they make deliver good products and the install looks great- but the lack of communication in my specific situation and unwillingness to remedy the lower than anticipated energy production are the reasons I cannot recommend them quite as highly to my friends and neighbors as I did before.

It took longer to do part of the operation when I saw it and then I had to do some follow up which wasn't good. I have no trouble with my system now. I had to have the panels removed and they were pulled off and put in the wrong place when I wasn't there.

I got a lot of recommendations that they were a good company. There were a couple situations where I had to kind of call back and follow up with them because I was waiting on things and they they didn't call me when they were supposed to and it took a long time to get it worked out. I'm not seeing all the savings that they promised me.

I wanted to save money on my electric bill, and I'm not entirely happy with the system they got me. The salesman said I'd get an extra hundred dollars a month by switching to solar, and that was true for the first month. After the following months, I was getting only an extra of 3-4 dollars a month. The installation process was fine, but the overall savings of the solar panels isn't worth it to me.
