"Great experience"
Reviewed Oct 10, 2019

From my initial consultation with SUNation to now I have had no complaints. After meeting with several other companies I can honestly say I am glad that SUNation built the reputation that they currently have and are rated so highly. From start to finish everything is done in house with SUNation and there is no way for their to be a blame game I am proud to call myself a SUNation family member and will continue to recommend their excellence to all that cross my path.

"Excellent service"

I’m very happy with my decision to have my solar panels with this company perfect for my family thank you

"Very pleased with SUNation"
Reviewed Sep 30, 2019

Very happy with the staff and the installation of my solar system. I have had the system a little more than a year and it's performing exactly as they predicted. Very nice people to deal with, I am glad to recommend them to others considering a solar system for their homes.

Government tax credits, that SunNation explained to me were received, but you still have to consider this an investment for the future due to the remaining cost of the system. I wish the government tax credits were even more generous, It would help people who are on the fence about going solar, make the decision easier.... But I am still happy with my decision to go solar.

SuNation installed 13.5 kWp system on my home last June. I truly cannot day enough great things about them.
First, they were company who gave me the best price with the best warranty on the market.
They were open from the day one and truth-full. From the moment sale specialist Bill meet with me thru the finishing project.
Also, they service department is amazing and so responsive with any request you may have.
I would highly recommend them to anyone who is willing to make move and go solar.

"Solar panel installation"
Reviewed Sep 25, 2019

The process from beginning to end was quite easy and absolutely worth it. I no longer receive an electric bill, except for the $0.40 per day line usage fee. I had the system up since August 8th 2019 and it has produced 2.63 Mwh of electricity, exporting back to the grid 1.09 Mwh as a credit for future use in case of cloudy, snow and shorter sun days in the winter. There was only one day so far that they produced less than I used. It was 85 deg's cloud rainy and very humid.
I understand each application of the panels will be different for everyone, but not having to pay PSEG $233 per month, which is a lot more than what I am paying for the panels, is great. I really encourage everyone to at least see if this is for you. They do not employ high pressure sales tactics and really do understand the needs of New Yorkers. Also they are a local Long Island business, not some company from out west that has been in business for 6 months.

This company walked me through the whole process, from evaluation through installation. The sales guy I dealt with, Bill, was great with call backs and answering any follow up questions I had. The install was near flawless with a lot of time and attention spent on minimizing the appearance of wires and such on the exterior of the home. Highly recommend this company.

"Exceptional Customer Service"
Reviewed Feb 08, 2019

I researched multiple Solar companies for nearly a month before settling on SuNation. I chose SuNation because their sales rep, John, went above and beyond to answer all our questions (he came to my house on three separate occasions). Even after contracts were signed John was extremely attentive and continued to answer my questions as we moved throughout the process. In addition to John the guys that came out for the field assessment, the women in the office, and the guys that installed the system were AMAZING. Everyone was so kind, patient, and helpful from start to finish. They communicate with you throughout the whole process. I LOVE my new soalr panels and highly recommend SuNation.

SUNation completed the installation of 37 panels on my house. Can't complain about a thing. I recommend this company!

"Very pleased with SUNation Solar Systems"
Reviewed Feb 06, 2019

It was very comfortable doing business with them. They treat me now, as an existing client, the same way they treated me when they were eager to get my business. The system works fantastically!!! I chose to over-produce because I believe electric cars will be in our future, but I didn't expect to be producing more than I use in JANUARY!!! So far, the system is outperforming their estimates. I'm very happy.

The sales rep I worked with was knowledgeable and professional and personal (and not pushy!). They were our second choice. They also offered a number of interesting financing options that offered better rates than anything we saw elsewhere.

"Sales Practice Too Agressive"
Reviewed Sep 15, 2018

While going through the process of selecting a solar provider I was bouncing around between three companies. It was a very complicated process because it also involved getting my roof done.

The sales rep from SUNation was simply too aggressive for me. I felt that at every touchpoint he was trying to get me to commit when I was still in the fact-gathering stage. In the end, the products and prices seemed comparable to competitors but I don't feel that I was given the space to seriously consider SUNation.

From the initial & follow-up presentations to the obtaining of permits & the eventual one-day installlation, service and follow-up were excellent.

"Sunation is the BEST!"
Reviewed May 05, 2018

We had our solar panels installed in November 2017, and we are so happy we did! We shopped around a bit and had several salespeople come to give their pitch, but none were able to give us the facts and statistics about our needs except for Steve Foley at Sunation. The installation went very smoothly and they were neat and clean. For the past couple of months we have only paid PSEG about $12 for the line into the house. We are currently working on a negative electric usage, which means we are producing more electricity than what we are using. We are so satisfied with the whole process from beginning to end. We are saving money AND we are helping the environment. WIN, WIN !!

"Sunation is amazing"

Originally I had met with steve Foley from Sunation in 2015.. ever since then I have had the best experience with the every at Sunation.. from steve... to the installers .. to billing... to service... even the owner reached out to welcome me to the Sunation family...

I haven’t had to pay an electric bill ( except the 12ish hookup fee.. for
Being on the grid) since I started producing back in 2015. It’s been great.. Original by electric bill was budgeted at $230... now even with my loan payment I’m only paying $179 a month.. it was a no-brainer ... and I love when my anniversary comes around and pseg pays me for all my excess power that i generated ;)

"The best decision I have ever made!!"

From the very beginning, Sunation proved to be the best solar provider around. They came with hundreds of references and positive reviews. From the permitting, to the install everything went so smoothly. They kept in contact on a weekly basis. I had my system installed approximately 6 weeks from signing and love it ever since!! Highly recommend!!

We are so happy we went with SUNation for our Solar purchase. From the start our Solar Site Evaluator showed us why it was a smart purchase for us, every step of the way Bob stayed in touch with us, among other staff members that each handle a different role, and our project Manager Tammy made sure to stay in touch almost weekly to show they were still progressing and waiting on permits. Everybody from the top of the company down to the installers have been fantastic!

From start to finish, SUNation kept us in the loop and made us feel comfortable with the choice we made to go solar. From the office staff to the guys on the roof, the lines of communication were always open.

"Reliable and Helpful"
Reviewed May 09, 2016

We had our solar system installed on October 1, 2015 and from beginning to end, SUNation was totally helpful and made the whole process go smoothly. From the beginning, we were told exactly what was going to happen, how much it would cost and the approximate timing of everything. Each step of the way, we were kept informed, and all paperwork was filed for us so that we didn't have to wonder what to do next. The day of installation, the guys worked quickly and cleaned up everything, so that you'd never know they'd been there. The installation looks so good - no pipes are visible and since I have the panels on the front and back, SUNation put nice black ones on the front (no gridlines) so it would look nice on my front roof. I've been very happy with the performance, and also being able to monitor everything on the app. I highly recommend this company. They're knowledgeable and trustworthy.
