great work Cape Fear Solar

This is the 2nd time I have used CFS to install more panels. I returned to them because of their absolute professionalism in all aspects of the installation. Alex the sales associate was helpful and listened to my concerns, drew up a plan well within my budget. He kept me apprised of the progress of my panels and made it all work. The installers were clean and professional and returned after activation to make sure everything was working out. Christina was helpful on the billing end, answered all my questions . I will use them again and highly recommend them to all interested in Solar !

Great job start to finish!

Cape Fear Solar came out and put together a project that worked for me. We were able to work out financing, installation, and inspections with no problems at all. Thanks to the whole team!

I gave Cape Fear Solar a 5 because there wasn't the option to give them 10000000. They were terrific. All the way through the process they did a terrific job. The workmanship is terrific and we are 100% happy with the installation.

Great customer experience

I was impressed with how easy Cape Fear Solar Systems made it to have solar panels installed on our home. The sales process was low pressure and informative, which I appreciated. Financing was made available and was easy to execute. We were kept informed of the status of various items required in the permitting process and it was simple to understand what was needed on our end to keep the project moving forward. CFSS did most of the heavy lifting on paperwork and obtaining approvals from various parties. The installation was completed in 2 days and we have not had any issues with our panels yet. Special thanks to Caleb and Christina for all of their support throughout the process!

Cape fear solar

No reason to use solar installers that are not local…..this company was great. I looked at quotes from companies hundreds of miles away and all were similar in pricing. It comes down to service and being available and cape fear solar could not have done better.
