    IMPORTANT NOTE: I DID NOT CHOOSE THIS COMPANY OR WORK WITH THEM BEYOND THE QUOTE. For all I know they may be great at everything except giving quotes. This review is entirely about their role in the quoting process I went through with 7 companies.

    Out of the 7 companies I got quotes from, YellowLite was the second-to-worst. The reasons were simple: Their price per watt was literally 25% more expensive than the median quote, and 45c/watt higher than the second highest! The price difference was absolutely insane. I asked if they were taking any special considerations that others weren't, like perhaps their quote was including electrical upgrades or trenching work or something like this...no, none of that. They just straight up wanted $3.45/watt for a run-of-the-mill panel when my average offer among the other 6 was about 2.77/watt. Just inexplicable to make this kind of an offer in the marketplace. They didn't even offer a justification except to say that they charge a lot in my state! Well why'd you bother making me a quote if you know I can see other prices and you know you're overcharging? It just doesn't make sense from a business perspective IMO to have even bothered paying for the lead generation.

    And that wasn't all. Their solar production estimates were just drastically wrong, they just thoughtlessly trusted the Aurora program's default guess rather than manually removing the huge block of trees that had clearly been removed on the satellite image. Like they've never worked with the program before.

    What's hilarious is that between the incredibly high price, the terribly inaccurate solar production modeling, and the bad financing, the EnergySage offer showed me just steadily losing money over the next 25 years. They didn't say, "hey based on our assumptions this system is not financially viable", instead they just pushed me out an offer that shows me permanently losing money, with this insanely high unjustified price, and they act like everything's normal!

    So I bring up all these problems and rather than give me a real response, they wait a day and then send me a canned message about whether I've read their quote and want to accept their offer! The audacity to be handling communication this badly after such an insulting offer! Eventually a human did respond (after I just told them they're doing terribly) and they politely told me that basically their offer was not very good compared to what I was getting and that was that.

    EDIT: I almost forgot. Early on I was told my case was handed off from person A to person B. I then was being messaged by person B but the signature was person A. I was explaining things to different people under the same name, and the same people under different names, it was a really embarrassing and unprofessional mess to not know who you're talking to!

    I'm giving 2 stars only because 1 star would probably hurt their rating more than it should for a quote-only interaction. But it really was an atrocious experience and they don't seem to have any handle on how to utilize the EnergySage platform or provide a competitive, rational quote.

    They did a fair job during the installation although it took a month longer than expected. I would not recommend them for any above ground wiring. I have a problem with mine and they are not responding to me. This has been going on for six months. The work around is dangerous and I have wires sticking out of drain pipes running across my back yard. Good luck if you need service.

    Update, the problem is Energysage. Energysage dose not pass correspondence to Yellowlite. Yellowlite has been very reponsive after I was able to engage them directly. It's recommend to avoid contact with Energysage. Old - Vendor does not respond to questions.
