The Good

  • 25-Year Warranty
  • Variety of Financing Options
  • Monitoring

25-Year Warranty

Your Energy Solutions offers customers peace of mind with 25-year guarantees on all features of the systems. Their Production Guarantee ensures that if the system fails to produce the amount of electricity promised, the company will make it right. The company's Workmanship Warranty (which is 2.5 times longer than the industry average) includes parts and labor for replacing or repairing the system and all penetrations made to the roof. Lastly, it includes all labor and associated with replacing solar panels or inverters that may malfunction for 25 years.

Variety of Financing Options

Customers can purchase their solar electric system with cash which offers the highest return on investment, shortest break-even time, maximum monthly energy savings, and full eligibility on rebates and tax credits. Financing is also offered and promoted as cost effective if your monthly electric bill is greater than $100/month. Leasing allows customers to rent the equipment for a typical term of 20 years and requires monthly payments.

Monitoring

Current and past production data and reports can be viewed online, on a tablet, or a smartphone using the website or mobile apps (available on both iTunes and Google Play). Panel level monitoring provides customers with details on how much energy is being harnessed through their solar panels. While users can view this data, Your Energy Solutions also monitors the data of all installed systems to notice irregularities and resolve issues. It also has a 5-star average rating on Yelp with more than 260 5-star customer reviews.

The Bad

  • Limited Service Area
  • No NABCEP Certification

Limited Service Area

While Your Energy Solutions serves a broad section of California extending from the San Francisco Bay area to Southern California, its services are not available outside the state. That said, if interested customers do live outside Your Energy Solutions' service area, they are encouraged to contact the company anyway to see what solutions are available to them.

No NABCEP Certification

Your Energy Solutions is not NABCEP-certificed. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners authors some of the most strenuous and well-respected solar installation certification programs in the country. While this is no indictment of the company's quality of service or expertise, the presence of an NABCEP certification can sometimes make the difference for customers comparing multiple solar providers.

Bryan Oakland, CA

Overall I had a very good experience with Your Energy Solutions. The sales team is very knowledgeable and answered multiple questions I had, did not feel pressured during the process. The insulation team was helpful and keep me updated on the entire process. There was some miscommunication on the actual installation date, and there was some additional cleanup they had to do around the installation but overall went smoothly. They surveyed the roof before the installation but when the installers came, they noted damage to the roof that needed to be repaired before they installed. Would've been nice for the surveyor to note the damage when he saw it. That delayed the insulation for a few weeks.

I like energy solutions because they were able to come down to the price that I found was reasonable. I checked other solar companies and that's how I came up with what I thought was an acceptable price for the job. they also did what they said where they were going to do and when they were going to do it. their workers were neat clean and respectable. they're a great company

They have the choice of some of the best newest microinverters. I really appreciated that. I interviewed probably five different companies and I liked them because they are a local company. Other companies were out of state and contracted with people. They are not the cheapest but they have the best warranty. I had a problem with one of the inverters about a year in and they took care of it quickly.

Professional service and great pricing. The sales rep was patient to explain the details of different solar system installation options. We had a slight issue with the install for which I had to intervene but once resolved, it went smoothly.

Installers were efficient and professional. They knew what they were doing and everything was installed properly. The inspectors were happy. The biggest problem I have had was with the project manager failed to look up permits on time so we lost three weeks but otherwise it was good. I was impressed with their operation.

Generally customer service is pretty responsive. They seem like they know what they are doing. Everything is working alright so far. They put up a new roof at the same time they installed the new solar panels. My only slight complaint is it took a while to get the loan through to the roofing company so I had to wait a bit longer than I would have liked.

The micro-inverter technology your energy solutions uses is definitely the latest and better than what their competitors are offering. I had heard about them from my neighbors. I was pleased that they completed what they promised and got it installed within a day.

Every once in a while some of the panels don’t give feedback and it would be nice if I had more information, nobody really told me how to operate it. I had to figure it out on my own. Installation was mostly okay. I asked them not to start before but they came early and started working on it so they could get the work done. They do provide the best value.

Sales and installation process was great. Only issue was an error on the CAD drawings— the city rejected the final inspection due to the discrepancy. Seemed to take a while to get the drawings fixed and then another city inspection. Net the system was installed early Dec but I didn’t get my net metering going until March, which was disappointing.

Stuart Stockton, CA

We were told with a $34,000 system we'd be able to turn our a/c down to 76 and still have excess electricity. The install went well but a year out and our true-up is over $800! We haven't increased our power usage and we still keep our a/c at 78/79… I have made phone calls and written several emails and gotten no answer for this discrepancy and now no responses at all. My friend's system out-performs mine. Disappointed with getting solar overall…

Easy to maintain, you can easily reach panels to clean which is good because they unfortunately get dusty easily. They work perfectly though. There have been no glitches. They work with your budget and accommodate you to make easy for the consumer to get the panels they need. I like they way they listen to the customer.

YES installed my solar panels quite a few years ago -- no problems. Went back to them for 2 Tesla Powerwall Batteries. A bit more expensive than other vendors but it was worth it, because just a few months after completion I have been notified that my SGIP rebate check is in the mail. Owner Jim was willing to alter the form contract in order to deal with my idiosyncracies. Pamela M took personal responsibility to shepherd my rebate application through the PG&E approval process, which is quite complicated. Project Manager Fabian G was exceptionally responsive during the whole process, and Daniel the head electrician provided great explanations and service as well. 5 stars.

I highly recommend Your Energy Solutions. I compared multiple companies and Y.E.S. had a much better price and a quicker installation timeline than the competition. I appreciated the fact that they have a long established track record of satisfied customers. Patrick was great at customizing my system to my needs. As the project proceeded Jessica and Pamela were always available to answer questions and make sure all of the coordination with the city permit office and PG&E got taken care of. The crew that came out to do the installation was professional and friendly. They listened to my ideas and put the components right where I wanted them. My home is now producing electricity right in line with the projections that they made in the original proposal.

We just had the installation and inspection completed, and for this process I want to give the highest marks to the company and in particular to our project manager Jessica La F. I've never seen such accurate, timely and detailed handling in any of our previous home projects. Everything was very nicely and properly communicated, schedules were exact and work was done always in time. They immediately reacted on one small problem that arose during main electrical panel replacement. We are very happy with Jessica and with customer service overall. I will certainly recommend this company to others and give best recommendation!

Installation went smoothly and the equipment works as stated. I don’t like the design on my roof so that is a big negative. I paid extra to have nicer looking panels and they slip down the roof so I wasn’t happy with that.

First off there pretty good company I pick them because of their yelp standing I got the top-of-the-line system which produces 7.7 KWh you better have all your ducks in a row meaning don’t let them sell you you sound them on what you want you’ll be able to cover the gap‘s when it comes to putting out money for a System get educated know what you want before you have them tell you what you want you’re better off that way far as follow up every company to stand a little criticism but overall they’re a good company I have recommended them to other people but people in the organization but if you don’t engage with these people you get what you put into it do your homework. Check out Home power magazine it helped me
