    From our salesperson Kristen to the install team we were impressed by the professionalism, patience and knowledge. Cape Fear Solar acted like they valued our business without pressuring us to buy. Definitely recommend.

    "Great Company and dedicated team"

    I used this company to have a basis for my solar panels on my new house.
    They did a great assessment of my usage, roof, and environment.
    They came to the house after numerous meetings online (COVID) to finalize the project and check if 100% everything was fine.
    Everything financially was reviewed. Before starting, they took over all the communication with the HOA. Once approved by the HOA, the project was started.
    I now have 28 beautiful Solar Panels which cover 100% of my yearly usage.

    Would I recommend Cape Fear Solar Systems: YES.

  • "Jacksonville NC / HOA issues"

    Reviewed Dec 23, 2018

    I can’t say enough about the quality of work and professional people that work at this company. The solar system is working great and it even took a level 2 hurricane with no problems. We had an issue with our HOA, but they worked with them and came up with a compromise so we could get our system. I would highly recommend them if you’re in Eastern NC.

    I wish all contractors I have dealt with over the years were as honest and efficient as Cape Fear Solar Systems! My wife and I were so impressed with the results of our first system... we bought TWO more (a massive system for my 20,000 sq ft office building and a hot water system for my home).
    Net Results: Our power bills have been CUT IN HALF!

    Note: I researched the various solar dealers in our area and Cape Fear Solar was hands down the best and has the strongest track record in Eastern NC! Janet and I highly recommend them to anyone in our area.

  • "Terrific Service!"

    "Best Customer Service and Installation!"

    Reviewed Aug 05, 2016

    Cape Fear Solar Systems installed a 6.5 KW 20 panel rooftop solar system on our home in Wilmington in we went live January 2013. Their technicians were amazing- they worked diligently despite colder weather and tidied up at the end of every day. Whenever we had a question, they responded immediately. We have recommended them to others and they have been pleased as well with the systems. After our warranty period, we subscribed to their very reasonable service contract because we know they will take good care of us.

  • "solar panels"

    Reviewed Jul 13, 2016

    Every day since we've put it in, our solar has exceeded our use. Too bad we can't collect it during the day and use it at night! But our average is over 75% solar, so all in all, we've slashed out electric bill by 75%. That's better than they predicted :)
