After I began repairs to my house I discovered my roof was in bad need of a change. I learned through my friend who just purchased solar that it would be good idea to look into both since I could stand to gain some money back. I met with few companies before choosing Solar Optimum for the job. They had great service reviews and the thoroughness of their consultation left me feeling like I was in good hands. The install was smooth and completed within 2 months of my signing.

I met with 3 or 4 other solar companies in the years before meeting with Solar Optimum. The previous companies's representatives all lied to me or tried to distort the benefits. Solar Optimum told me the truth. The system was installed properly, works as specified and my property was treated respectively. What more can anyone ask for?

Solar seemed more and more like a better idea living in California. I decided to see what it would cost to make the switch. In the end it cost me less per month to pay for having solar than paying my actual bills. The decision was made for me after meeting with Sean and finding out just how easy this would make my life. This system allow me to live comfortably without sacrificing my life style.

Going solar was not a decision I took lightly. I did months of research in order to decide which solar company would be best for me and my family. I really loved the efficiency of Solar Optimum from the beginning. Silva contacted me right away after my initial contact then I met with Artur for my home consultation. The installation crew who eventually came out to install the solar panels, did so in a really clean and efficient way. They then proceeded to show me everything I needed to know about my new system and monitoring to ensure I was aware of each step in the process. It's also nice to have Silva and Artur's direct phone numbers making the communication as seamless and easy as possible.

What attracted me to Solar Optimum to begin with was their depth of knowledge and understanding of my overall power needs from out initial conversation. Although the team is small, they operate like a large business, putting communication with their customers first. Not to mention, they quoted me the best price for my system than neighboring competitors. The combination of professionalism, knowledge, and best value is what ultimately made me decide to go with Solar optimum.

It's always a wonderful feeling when you've selected a contract that meets or exceeds your expect. I did a great deal of research on solar installation companies in the Los Angeles , California area and Solar Optimum had nothing but high and consistent ratings/review. One of the reasons is due to the quality of individuals they employee. From the sales to the installation to the turn up everything was wonderful. There pricing was cheaper with higher quality equipment than the other quotes we received by a substantial amount. The warranty is also one of the best in the industry. - Sales- George was a wonderful low pressure salesman. He had confidence in his product/company and was attentive in correcting any issues that arose. He also stopped by during the installation. - Installation- 21 Panel and the system were installed in (1) day. This may not be the case for all installation but it was for ours. They showed up on time and did the work without ever needed to disturb me. - Post Sales- System was inspected and approved by the city and SCE within a few weeks. We've had the system for about 10 days and currently producing more power than we use, partly due to the mild June. The only suggestion, I would have is for Solar Optimum to have an installation process checklist (Maybe they did and I lost it).

I'm not writhing this review because Solar Optimum gave me the cheapest price but because they gave me the BEST price!!! When I researched, I was considering all of these factors when I evaluate if my investment was worth it: quality of products, customer service, professionalism, honestly and no BS. Solar Optimum gets top scores in every single category! When I compare to the salespeople I've met from other companies, Solar Optimum really stood out. Polite, Knowledgeable, clear in what they are offering and (it seems) really excited about solar. This was the overall impression of everyone I came across from Solar Optimum. When it comes to my panels, I am beyond satisfied. Thanks OPTIMUM.

Solar Optimum installed a solar system on our house. From my initial call, to the quote and to the installation, I was really pleased with the entire solar team.

I called Solar Optimum after having met with a few solar companies and receiving quotes from each. After careful review I noticed that each company had a offered me something slightly different from the next. I wanted to find out exactly what I needed and after reading the reviews from Solar Optimum decided to meet with them. Meeting with them was the best decision. After sitting with Ivan I walked away with a wealth of information and finally understood my needs. My system, was installed quick and had no surprises during that time. I have been very happy with my choice and my system.

I'm the type of customer who appreciate details thus I spent countless hours researching everything I need to know about solar including panel brands, panel type, installers, the finances and return on investment that I would get. After meeting with six different vendors, I narrowed it down to Semper Solarus and Solar Optimum. Both gave me quote for my solar system and both had a similar warranty package. I took the chance with Solar Optimum based on their overall reviews on Yelp and other sites including BestCompany, Google and Facebook. Happy to say I made the right decision and I'm very satisfied with my system. Great team over there at Solar Optimum. Friendly people and helpful with my detailed questions.

He explained all of my options without pressuring.

They got job done, but outside of promised time frame, with no acknowledgement for the miss. I was pushing things to move faster (to be expected from a customer), and sales rep emailed someone internally that I am 'tired of hearing,' (read: that I am not capable of understanding what they have explained before). He inadvertently sent me that email (smart move).

They used third party contractor to dig a trench and repair access. The guy did a poor job and it took about two months to get that done right, despite prompt from me and Solar Optimum. Weather had a hand in it. But third party guy was 85% and the company 15% got hiring someone who takes no pride in his workmanship. .

They designed a system for our needs and workers to our home to set it all up. They installed it and had the city inspectors check their work and all passed with flying colors. They answered any questions we had and even came out two times to make sure all things were going right. They flipped the switch and it all work like it should.

Super-professional installation performance. Mediocre and inconsistent communications, internal coordination, customer responsiveness, and follow-through.

Solar Optimum is the best! When I first looked into solar, the options were overwhelming. So many companies, panels, inverters, prices, purchase plans, etc. After a lot of research and cost analysis, Solar Optimum rose to the top of my list of potential solar installers. They offered the Panasonic panels I wanted paired with Enphase microinverters at a price that beat all their competitors. After accepting their proposal, the installation was a breeze. They took care of the city permits and the actual installation took place soon after approval. The installation team was quick and efficient and did a superb job. I am extremely pleased with my experience with Solar Optimum and highly recommend them to anyone considering going solar.

Your'e right, Ali. There are a lot of companies in the area who install solar-- but very few with the same 10+ years track record, awards, certifications, training and competitive pricing that Solar Optimum can and has delivered. We're thankful you recognized this and chose Solar Optimum.

We spent 3 months looking into solar companies and interviewed with 6 companies before decided to go with Solar Optimum. And Ivan P was the reason we went with Solar Optimum. His knowledge and excitement about the products was superior to the others we interviewed with. The price, the products, and the warranty was second to none. He spent as much time as we needed to review the products and understand the product we would be purchasing. And this is important to me because I spent 30 years as a project superintendent/ project manager where knowledge was the most important thing to me. Ivan was very thorough on everything he told us about Solar Optimum and the knowledge he and his company had to satisfy my needs, which are very tough. Time was not an issue with Ivan and his company. They spent a total of 10 hours with myself and wife before we even decided to purchase. You can't go wrong with Ivan and Solar Optimum. Sincerely, The Cantaral family

This company was amazing from start to finish. I had a leaky roof which started me on my solar system journey. Solar Optimum referred me to an excellent roofer who replaced my 35 year old roof in preparation for solar installation. Solar optimum helped arrange financing to cover cost of roof and solar project. And cost of my roof calculated into my federal solar tax credit. Solar optimum made going solar completely painless. They coordinated my project with power company, city inspectors, roofer, and financing company seamlessly. I just received my first power bill since system operational and I made more power than I used. My payment for system will average out to be same as I used to pay, for power from power company. And after I pay off system I will have free electricity. Thank you Solar Optimum!

We are so happy we went with Solar Optimum. They are professional, precise, and personable. From start to finish, it never felt like we were making the wrong decision. Not only were they thorough in explaining the process, they also let us know by phone and email step by step what would happen next. My family did A LOT of research prior to switching over to solar, and I know we chose the best company.

I truly appreciate the excellent service Solar Optimum provided. Our friend referred this company and after shopping around, we've decided that SO has the best deal in the market. I spoke to Sean, who provided detailed information about their service and explained the whole installation process. Everything went smoothly from start to end. Although there was an instant when there was a problem with the start up, they came through to diagnose the issue, which happened to be just a software update, and was able to resolve the issue immediately. I was very pleased with the technical support and customer service that I referred them to couple of my friends. If you're shopping around for solar installation, shop no more... give them a call! You really can't go wrong with Solar Optimum.

We looked for months for the right solar company constantly comparing rates peoples reviews and ratings. We found Solar Optimum thru word of mouth and having a great person explain in plain English not solar talk what this purschase consists of. We were pleased with his speech and introduction which made up our mind . Mike B is amazing .

I really enjoyed my experience with Solar Optimum. From the beginning to the end I felt that my interest were always their concern. From the start the level of information they presented was far beyond the rest of the sales people we had met with. Not only did they have answers for all my questions but went into great detail making sure I understood what I was buying. I had some decisions to make in the end but with their help seemed less a chore.

I contacted Solar Optimum about a home battery because I got our solar system from them 4 years ago. Because why not go all the way, when I've already taken the first step towards energy efficiency? I ended up going with the 2.0 battery Tesla Powerwall because from what I researched is the best home battery on the market, and of discussion! I personally did a ton of research, and I ended up going back to the Tesla battery every single time. It was installed recently and the performance is great. The app is really easy to use and I'm able to see when it is on and off. Actually, the goal is become fully independent from my utility company in the long run, which this battery will now help me achieve!
