What You Need to Know

Description:

7.5KW, 25 Trinia 300w black on black, have a 6kw inverter, since installing

Other Benefits:

Could be great and zero out my $400./month power bills,,so not yet since 2015

Maintenance Requirements:

Cant get them to even call, let alone service anything they did, DON'T RECAMEND

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

FULL HOME UPGRADE TO TOP OF THE LINE FURNACE,A/C,INSULATION BLOWN IN,SILVER PAINT TO KEEP ATTIC COOLER, BIGGER EXHAUST FAN ON TIMERS, BETTER WINDOWS, OVER 60,000 SPENT TRYING TO HAVE ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT.

My Motivation:

Wanted zero CARBON FOOTPRINT

Advice:

DON'T USE SOLAR UNION, BUT IT IS NICE IN SUMMER TO NOT FEEL GUILTY ON A/C ECT,BUT MY BAD EXPERIENCE ISN'T ANY REASON NOT TO GO GREEN, ONE DAY I'LL SAY HOW GREAT IT IS TO NOT HAVE TO PAY ELECTRICAL BILLS ANYMORE, A MORE COMPETENT COMPANY WOULD HAVE FIXED THIS ASAP, NOT TURN AWAY PAID CLIENTS,I'M SURE I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE, CAN'T BE.

Experience with Installer:

Installers were ok had to know what to say when they tried to take easy way for the works.

Additional Notes:

Well above most likely says it all, if you need my Attorney's name for Solar Union, he's become a Solar expert, too bad my 1st time with energy Sage, they never followed up, I started having issues on install when paid for 7.5kw (they designed), and saw a 6kw inverter, being installed, but was told by Ivan of Solar Union that he knew more than me, apparently not.!!!$$$$$

Open House Info:

If and when ever done sure all is top quality, once all is working.
