"Awesome People, Equipment, & Service"
Reviewed Mar 20, 2019

Green Power Energy ("GPE") was not my least expensive quote, but I chose them for the reputation and recommendations - not to mention how easy Luis was to work with when he came to do the home assessment and quote. Everyone at GPE that I communicated with was knowledgeable and courteous.

I'm highly satisfied with everything, from GPE coordinating installation of my new roof before my solar installation to the consultation with Will after the install to show me how everything works and what to expect. I'll definitely recommend GPE to friends and family who are interested in investing in solar.

I had 10 plus estimates and Green Power Energy had the most efficient 350 Watts Panels solar system design while others were offering lower wattage panels for higher prices I got a 12.6KW system for $38,000 while others were paying $42,000 for 10KW or less plus they used bull horns on the ladders not to damage my new leafguard gutters/roof so better than that impossible.

Very helpful and professional. Tony walked us through the entire process, step-by-step. There was a little SNAFU with permits and applications which set us back some time, but that was only an inconvenience and not a disaster.
Installation was quick and they did a good job of cleaning up after themselves. Their installation team is top notch.

Wanted to go solar, and after doing a lot of research, interviewing sales people and getting quotes from EnergySage, we went with GPE. Bought our system outright. Salesperson (Luis) was knowledgeable and answered all my questions on the spot. Price was not the lowest, but close, very competitive for the product and service offered.

I tend to be very critical, and as an engineer, I do my technical due diligence. Scheduling and installation happened later than I hoped. We signed our contract end of June and went "live" 4 months later. I was unaware of the process, but GPE explained and was available anytime I poked at them for a status update.

We had a scheduling snafu that caused a couple week delay in our install, but at the end of the day, we are very happy with the tech and hardware offered, and the people. Would recommend to anyone looking for an install.

Researched solar for over a year. After getting quotes from six solar companies, we chose Green Power Energy. Hands down this was the best decision. From the presentation with Christine to the installers, everything went great. Christine gave honest and realistic outlook in regards to SREC prices. Other companies overinflated and gave a much too optimistic outlook in regards to SREC prices in future. Green power was very competitive in price and installed the panels to my liking on two roofs. Looks great and best of all zero electric bill. If your serious about installing solar, look no further than Green Power Energy.

From first contact until the system was operational and beyond, the entire process has been a pleasure. Everyone associated with the company takes a genuine interest in you and your project, and the operation, both financially and from a construction standpoint, was flawless.
I now receive a monthly bill from PSE&G for about $1.50. That's one dollar and fifty cents, not one hundred and fifty dollars. In addition, the SREC's I receive each month have totaled approximately $3600 for the year, which is about $600 a year more than the panels cost me. So I get electricity and make a profit!
You can't beat Green Power for solar installation and financing.

We chose this company out of maybe 6 to 8 who gave us proposals. They were straightforward and helpful. We were impressed with their pricing, flexibility, responsiveness, proposal and installation. They did a great job overall. It looks like we will generate about 8 srecs our first year during a rainy and overcast 2018. I had requested them to fabricate a blank, fake black panel to fill in where a vent was on our roof so that leaves would not gather there. They did not, but maybe that was too much to hope for.

I initially was drawn to Green Power based on their overwhelmingly positive reviews. Everything I read about their professionalism, courtesy and customer service was quite true. As a DIY homeowner, I wanted to ensure everything was done correctly, to code, and looked great. They met all of my expectations in this regard and I am very happy with the result of my install. Tim was excellent and very responsive answering my many questions. The installers were all polite and very professional. Will was also wonderful to deal with during our post-install meeting. Even with a problem on my original inverter, I was back up and running with a brand new inverter in less than a week.

My only small criticism is that they did not keep me updated during the lengthy amount of paperwork that needed to be filed (it takes many weeks). I often had to ask for updates as to when I should expect paperwork (permits, etc.) to be completed or returned. Plan on asking when to expect items completed to ensure that everything has been filed on your behalf. Other than that, it was a great experience and I highly recommend them without any reservation. It is my pleasure to have worked with a smaller company and recommend them to my family and friends to keep growing their business.

"Great solar installation"
Reviewed Nov 14, 2018

Over the past several years I, like many of you reading this review, have been contacted by probably 6 or more solar companies offering leasing deals with the catch, “You won’t have an electric bill with solar”. Knowing that nothing is this life is “free” my research over that period of time resulted in the final analysis that buying my system was much more financially conducive to eliminating an electric company bill rather than leasing, so buying I did, for both of my two homes. In researching the multitude of solar companies on line and having every one of their company representatives meet with me at both homes I came to the conclusion that Green Power Energy would be the one solar company that I would contract with to install and maintain my two systems. Their support staff, from office personnel to field engineers, were nothing short of superb answering the phone whenever I called and getting me the complete information I was requesting in a timely and professional manner. I could not be happier with the application process, the efficient manner in which the design and installation was conducted, the post construction meeting with Will who explained all of the systems functions, but especially the end result which last month resulted in one home having a $21.00 electric bill and the other a credit of 230 KW of power. GPE was not the cheapest contractor, nor were they the most expensive, but they offered me a highly rated Panasonic panel system at what I felt was a reasonable price considering my long term overall costs with the Federal Government’s tax credit and my SRECs, along with my very low or non-existent Atlantic City Electric Company bill, will result in both systems being paid back in full in approximately 4.5 years. Everything after that will really be free, considering the SRECs will continue for another 10 years coupled with the fact that, on average, my production will equal my consumption. Ultimately, I could not be happier with Green Power Energy’s friendly and engaged employees who provided up front and transparent quotes, quality engineering along with a professional installation while being in constant communication with me concerning the projects overall process. It is with this in mind that I would recommend Green Power Energy to any home or business owner interested in determining whether solar power is feasible for you.

"Great Solar Vendor, very organized work flow, highly recommended."
Reviewed Nov 09, 2018

I was exploring installing Solar on and off for a few years, and finally in early spring, I decided to go all in. I reached out to a bunch of vendors from the really big players to the really small ones and finally decided on Green Power.

I did a pretty good amount of financial modeling and doing Solar in NJ seemed like a no-brainer, especially considering how long I am planning to stay in this house.

Tim DeSevo reached out to me with his proposal. The price that Green Power offered was one of the most competitive with best of the breed equipment. I reached out to Tim over e-mail/text messages/phone calls quite a few times and he was very patient in explaining the process and answered ALL my questions to my satisfaction.

Finally I decided on Green Power as they were local but big enough that the 20 year warranty etc meant something. What's the point of the warranty, if the company is not around to service it.

We finally kicked off the project and this was one of the most annoying aspects of this whole project. The paperwork & inspection took quite a bit of time(most of it was the township's fault). This was one of the minor quibbles with Green Power, during the entire paper work process there was radio silence and I had to constantly reach out to get updates even if it was the fault of my township.

Once the paperwork was done, it was smooth sailing. The project was very organized in the final implementation phase. Every step of the way the different crew/people were meticulous in keeping me abreast of what was going on.

I need to give a shout out to Will Miska for doing the final walk through, he was so helpful in explaining everything and how everything comes together(Power Generation, SREC Generation etc, faults monitoring).

Please do your own research, but I highly recommend Green Power for your Solar needs, I am glad I went with them. I am contrasting my experience with what my brother went through in the Boston area with a vendor there.

Excellent company to deal with. Tim, Mike and the rest of the team we're very responsive to my concerns and questions. I did a lot of research through Energy Sage and it came down to three companies. All three companies we're pretty close in terms of pricing and materials used. The difference is the warranty, the experience of the company, value of what I am paying for,  and most importantly, in my case,  the customer service support.

 I'm glad I went with Green Power Energy. I had some minor issues,  one in particular was regarding the conduit location. They were able to address it  and resolve it quickly to my satisfaction. What differentiates a good company and a not-so-good company is how  quickly they  respond to customers issues and how they will resolve it. It's easy to have good reviews  when everything goes smoothly with the job. However, if  issues arise,  you want  a company that listens to you and be confident that they will address them quickly and to your satisfaction. Green Power Energy was excellent in responding to my concerns and issues and resolved them quickly without any hassle.

So far, it has been a little over a year since my solar panels were installed.  To this date, it has been great. No technical issues and minimal  or no electric bill except taxes and fees. Since I bought system,  I have earned about 6 SREC certifiates as of now.

I recommend Green Power Energy to anyone who is in the market for solar panel o installation.

The guys at Green Power Energy were great from the initial consultation to the final inspection. Tim DeSevo was our sales consultant and he came to our home to review our property's individual panel layout in full detail and answer all of the questions we had, from logistics to financing. The contractual/financial process was all handled digitally which made it super convenient for a couple of people who work many hours and may not have time to visit an office in the middle of a work day to sign documents in person. We bothered Tim a few times with random questions and he was always readily available to answer without delay. The installation guys were super friendly and very quick; within two days they were done! They left the area very clean and without any indication that they had been there other than leaving behind 42 amazing solar panels on our roof that you would never even know are even there. Oh, and the app! The APP! Tim will describe to you the monitoring system and the accompanying app that you can download and when he does, he will understate the distracting effect it will have on your daily life as you randomly celebrate the kwh (FREE energy) your system is generating on a sunny day. For an old square person like myself, that's as close to crack as I'm gonna get. That app is the old square person's equivalent to crack. The sun works for us now. The biggest star in the galaxy rotating light years away from from our planet is shoving dollar bills inside of our wallets. It will shove some in yours too. Just do it. You're reading this review so you're obviously serious about it. At the very least, call Tim and ask for an evaluation of your property. Because this is the kind of crack that everyone should try.

"Fantastic, Would give higher rating if possible"
Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

In summary: Go with Green Power, no others compare.

With Tim's guidance I chose a 44 panel 12.98kW system (44 panels at 295 watts each = 12,980)
Panels: Hanwha Q Cell 295 Watt
Inverter: 1 Solaredge
All black panels with black racking and trim. The panels blend in very nicely on my black roof (if that is a concern to you).

For reference - my prior home had owned solar put on by the prior owner. So I have solar experience/knowledge but never installed them myself.

I'll breakdown my review by the various steps needed to get solar installed.

I used energysage to solicit quotes and met with a local installer in NJ (Trinity Solar) as well as called the big name brands (Tesla and others). The local and big name companies I felt like the salesmen didn't care to educate me, just wanted a sale.

Tesla (formerly Solar City) had the appearance of a lower cost system but in reviewing their quote I realized they were taking my SREC's upfront to lower my cost but at $4 per....currently $150-200/per. Be careful if speaking with them, losing SRECs materially changes the economics of solar.

Trinity Solar salesman just came across as untrustworthy; he stated a few things in regards to tax credits and SREC pricing that felt wrong. When he left and I researched them, my instinct was correct. I challenged him and he tried to spin his statements.

Tim was the complete opposite...his approach was answer honestly and if I happen to go with him that's great. I ended up choosing Tim specifically, because of my interaction with him, these stellar energysage reviews, the price / equipment used and I called a few references he provided.

It's important to note, for my quotes, Green Power proposed the same equipment as the big name brands. So there is was no difference in equipment/manufacturer warranties/etc.

After choosing Tim, we filled out some paper work electronically and Green Power Energy worked behind the scenes to get my project going. We went back and forth with proposed layouts, I was very focused on the aesthetics so Tim and team were patient sending me multiple layout options and discussing the efficiency among the various layouts (# of panels on front vs back of house).

From there we waited for township/state/etc approvals and set the installation day. I thought Tim was great but the team installing my system even better. They made sure all of my aesthetic concerns were met, talked me through the process, asked questions and suggested some improved layouts of wires/etc. I have two small boys who wanted to talk to them all day long, they took time out to talk to them and explain what they were doing. I gave permission for a team to come out and take some pictures, they let the kids see how the drone works etc. I realize these are little things but it seems everyone at the Company knows the little things make a big difference with some people. Just a great company, I can't rave enough about them. Clearly their focus is on customer satisfaction.

Install took 4 full days over two weeks, some of which was due to my townships inspection requirements half way through. The teams installation passed the midway inspection and the final building/electrical inspections on first pass.

I'm currently waiting on PSEG to swap out my meter so we can turn my system on, it's in standby mode. So I can't speak to the accuracy of energy production quoted vs produced but will try to update this review in a year. It's currently October 2017.

"Very responsive company "
Reviewed Oct 05, 2017

Excellent company to deal with. Tim, Mike and the rest of the team we're very responsive to my concerns and questions. I did a lot of research through Energy Sage and it came down to three companies. All three companies we're pretty close in terms of pricing and materials used. The difference were the warranty, the experience and value of what I am paying for.  I'm glad I went with Green Power Energy. I had some minor issues,  one in particular was regarding the conduit location. They were able to address it  and resolve it quickly to my satisfaction. What differentiates a good company and a not-so-good company is how  quickly they  respond to customers issues and how they will resolve it. It's easy to have good reviews  when everything goes smoothly with the job. However, if  issues arise,  you want  a company that listens to you and be confident that they will address them quickly and to your satisfaction. Green power energy in my case was excellent in responding to my concerns and issues and resolving them quickly.

From initial proposal questions to contract, financing, installation process and steps to final inspection, everyone we dealt with at GPE were professional and excellent communicators. Special thanks to Tim DeSevo who guided us through the entire process, thanks also to Dan Garcia our project foreman who reviewed all install details with me and to his entire hard-working install team and Cheryl at home office who kept us informed on next steps and upcoming schedule. I would highly recommend Green Power Energy to all NJ residents interested in solar. The LG Neon2 panels look great and were installed on schedule, neatly arranged and precisely located as we requested.

From initial call to final completion Tim was open, honest and quick to respond every step of the way.

All I can say is, “Wow!” It’s very rare that you find a vendor who is responsive, informative, flexible, reliable, AND cost effective. But Tim, Mike, David and the install team at Green Power Energy knocked it out of the park. I needed a new roof and wanted a fairly large (12.2kW) residential system. When the dimensions of my roof came up a bit short for my needs, Tim came back with variety of options to maximize the productivity of my system and squeeze as many panels possible of my roof. GPE coordinated everything, roofing, permitting, inspections, and (of course) all of the installation work including the new SolarEdge consumption monitoring capability. I’m so happy with my new Panasonic panels and the monitoring data and enhanced performance I get from my SolarEdge solution. What a great company to work with! I sailed through my inspections the first time without any issues, and all of the installation work is top notch. I highly recommend them! Now's a great time to go solar in NJ.

Reviewed May 14, 2017

I started researching solar in earnest over 6 months ago. I got quotes from the “top five” solar companies as well as the local big box hardware stores and then I came across the web site Energy Sage. They were a fountain of information and brought me several new quotes, including GreenPower Energy’s. (What I like about Energy Sage was that they send you quotes without you having to give out your personal information-unless you want to.) Bottom line, I found that GreenPower Energy offered the best value; they had great equipment, great pricing and great customer service. Tim DeSevo, their sales manager, was knowledgeable, responsive and easy to work with. The installation crew was professional, courteous, and flexible to my needs. (I actually asked them to delay installation while I had a new roof installed). Installation went smoothly - they took care of everything - and I am now generating my SRECS. They are an excellent local company, based in New Jersey, and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in going solar. Five stars from me.

We completed our install with Green Power Energy and I can't sing their praises enough.
We chose Green Power Energy for our purchase and could not be happier. Tim DeSevo is our contact person and has always responded quickly to any questions. We can't thank him enough for making the process seamless and he is always pleasant and knowledgeable.
After extensive research on solar companies and systems I can confidently say that Green Power Energy is the best choice for a system purchase. The quality of products offered surpasses the large companies ( Sunrun and Solar City ) we looked at and at a much lower price.
The whole experience has been excellent. From Tim helping us design a system to meet our needs,the contract was straight forward,all the permits handled for us,the installation crew were professional and skilled at their work, and Dave the master electrician who completed the final inspection and net meter install. They are also the only company to consider and install squirrel guards to protect the investment of a solar system.
We are so thankful we were connected with Green Power Energy through Energy Sage. In our experience,the large companies are definitely profit focused where the people at Green Power Energy are focused on getting the consumer the right system and they go above and beyond to meet price , quality and workmanship.

Not sure where to start because this entire process has been phenomenal from the word go. I used a third party aggregator site to submit my solar requirements. Within 20 mins on a Friday afternoon, Tim Desevo from Green Power had given me a quote. Most others didn't even respond with an introduction till Monday morning. Tim took the time to truly educate me and answer all my questions. Instead of trying to sell me a product he listened and answered every one of my very detailed questions and ultimately gave me a solution. Because I am highly technical and had done a lot of research already I had a LOT of questions that most probably don't ask. He walked me through the whole process. By the end of that day we had corresponded multiple times with him contacting me via cell over the weekend multiple times. I cannot even begin to tell you the joy it was working with a competent and engaging guy. In reality I bought "Tim". At no point did I feel like I was being pressured or sold. He was confident and even offered to allow me to speak with another person in my town that had purchased through him. As the process went on, I was NEVER left guessing what the next step is. Their people showed up on-time every time. Dan, Chris and Devon did a neat clean job and I could not be more pleased. I would highly recommend Green Power Energy for your solar needs. If I could give 6 stars I would. If they asked me of a suggestion I could give them to improve what they did, I seriously cant think of a thing.

Their combination of quality products, clear explanations of different technologies, best overall value, and superior customer service (my Green Power Energy representative, Tim DeSevo, always responded within hours, even on weekends and evenings!) made them the clear winner. While the total process was long, most if not all of the delay was due to the slow processing of permits by my municipality. Again, my representative, Tim DeSevo, stayed on top of the process and kept me informed along the way. Every detail throughout the project was attended to with care and professionalism, minor glitches along the way were quickly addressed and corrected, the installation was thoughtfully designed with esthetics in mind, and my property was left spotless at the completion of the job.

From presentation to negotiation and painstaking follow up, Tim delivered. Since you only install one Solar Energy Plant on your house you will want it done right, perfect, fast, and with as little intrusion on your daily life as possible.

Of the four quotes that we received, Tim at Green Power was the most straightforward in explaining exactly what we would be getting and did not pressure us the way some of the other companies did. They were able to begin our job a week before they had anticipated, and the installation itself only took two days. The only delays we have experienced were related to waiting for PSE&G to install the new meters and for the State of NJ to get back to us with our SREC registration. Green Power has been immediately responsive to all the questions I have had.

I talked to all the big guys (Solar city, Sunrun, NRG etc) none of them came even close when it came to cost or customer service.

There were a few hiccups with my Township for inspection. Buy Tim and the team were constantly updating me on the status of my inspection.

The install team was courteous and really helpful whenever I had any questions. They really ensured that I knew what was going on in my system.

All in all, Tim and his team were fantastic. He's always available via phone, email or text and has never failed to answer any questions I've thrown at him.

I contacted a number of different solar companies, and it was immediately clear that Green Power Energy was different than the others. My first contact with them was the sales person, Tim, who responded to my emails as quickly as I could write them.

The installation crew was not your "typical" contractors... They were here on time every day, and went out of their way to ensure the installation was done just the way we wanted. They had to dig a trench between our detached garage and the house, and they asked us if we'd like to have them install a second conduit just in case we ever needed one, so we wouldn't have to dig it up again.

I chose GreenPowerEnergy from a list of seven solar installers, some big household names some smaller ones. GreenPower was an easy decision for me
- they listened to my specific needs: I have a complicated roof topology and all other providers tried to limit the system capacity to keep the installation simple for them
- they were the only ones who physically measured the roof immediately to come up with a credible proposal
- they had a very competitive price point
- they had a track record (including references they readily provided) with installations on metal roofs, which I have

After making the decision, I could not have been more satisfied. Tim DeSevo has been incredibly responsive. Not a single question/inquiry - and I had many - wasn’t answered the same day. GreenPower did exactly what they said they would.

The installation itself was done very well. The crew was very courteous, professional and competent and worked hard to accommodate particular likes/dislikes. For example, our roof topology required a complex conduit setup that we wanted to be visually as unobtrusive as possible. The crew really thought hard about ways to accommodate us and went the extra mile to make it happen.

From day one, our dealings with Green Power Energy have been a pleasure. Tim and Andrew, the sales team, were both highly informative and clearly explained the complete process from the beginning. We interviewed several contractors, and Green Power Energy's quote was highly competitive. Once we signed up for a system, GPE handled all of the necessary paperwork for filing with the township, state and the electric company. Getting the approvals from the state and especially the electric company took quite a while, but once the approvals came in we were off to the races. Within two weeks from the day the approvals came in GPE had Dave and his crew of his installers over. Dave and the team did a great job keeping a tidy work site and made sure we knew what was happening each step of the install. Both my wife and I work from our home, so we were impressed how the team was able to accomplish their job with minimal interruptions to us. Professionals through and through. Mike showed up for the final inspections and system walk through and let us know we could reach out to him at any point if we had any questions.

If you do lease insist on a non escalating payment plan, some quotes from competitors built in a 2% annual payment increase.

While designing our system they laid out various equipment choices and let us customize our system to fit our needs; we went with SolarEdge optimizers, a great technology to maximize power from every panel. The installers were thorough and friendly, explaining to us every step of process, taking photos of the work in progress, and once it was installed teaching us exactly how the system operates.
