"1 year since installation and still not working"
Reviewed Sep 06, 2019

We purchased a ground mount system through Sunworks and the installation of the panels was completed on September 27, 2018 and we have yet to have it connected to the power company a full year later. We have asked got status updates and they have put it off on the power company stating that they are taking their time when after speaking to the power company it has been due to the fact that they have filed the paperwork incorrectly. This company does not make their customers a priority at all. I would NEVER recommend using them.

"Awesome, I highly recommend Sunworks"
Reviewed Dec 06, 2018

It's rare for a company to have such great service from front office to back office but Sunworks does. On the sales side, Joe was very fast to reply to all my inquiries (like "here's a photo of my old 100 amp panel - will it work or do I need to upgrade first?" -- and I used all channels to communicate with him - Energy Sage website, e-mail, text, and phone) Once I agreed to the final details the contract was in my inbox within an hour, I electronically signed it, and then the next day I was contacted to schedule an onsite evaluation. Daniel came and did his evaluation, and I'm guessing he uploaded his photos and report from his van sitting outside my house, because it seemed like within 2 hours of his visit, I received a PDF and e-mail from their back office with a layout and information of how the install would go, which IIRC, I needed to approve. A quick call the next day set the appointment and 4 guys came on install day and knocked out my small 8 panel install in about 5 hours. Next day the city inspection was set up and city approval happened with no problems (I live in Santa Clara County.) I was floored at how fast, how friendly/helpful everyone was, and how smooth everything went. At the end, I wanted some photos of the panels on my roof and of course, I could try and climb up on the second story roof myself, but since I knew Daniel had taken pictures, I asked if he would send me some. Within 15 minutes they were sitting in my e-mail. When they say they'll do something, they do it. I'm not related to anyone at this company in any way shape or form, nor do I get any financial or other benefit for writing this review, but I truly was blown away throughout the whole process and would definitely use them again.

"Poor customer service"
Reviewed Oct 22, 2018

I filled out the initial app because I was interested in this product. For the next 2 weeks I received multiple calls from unknown numbers and no messages left. I finally got fed up and started dialing back the numbers to find out who was blowing up my phone every day. To my surprise it was a Sun Works rep out of Oregon. I discussed my solar needs with this Tech who could only give me a sales pitch but I agreed to having someone do a home visit the following week. Home visit went fine and I was told I would have a proposal the same afternoon. Almost daily there after I received text messages to delay the proposal with a multitude of different excuses. Finally I told the tech not to bother me unless he had a proposal. Miraculously I had one the very next morning. Being busy and not able to drop things once again for this tech, I quickly sent a text saying I was to busy to speak with him at that time but would like more information about the actual panels being used so I could look at it later. Instead of the information, I got a sales pitch and pressure to sign by the next day. I asked him to forego the pitch and if he didn't have the information about the panels, have someone else send it to me. He then called me RUDE! Of course the conversation deteriorated for there! No way will I pay $53,000 for ANYTHING without being aloud to ask questions about what I am buying, and I certainly will not tolerate a sales person with such lack of professionalism. What a scam!!! This company just wants to sucker people into a huge debt for 20 years no matter what they actually provide for you.

"Great choice, no hype, super happy!"
Reviewed Feb 20, 2018

Energy Sage taught me a lot about solar. I got some great bids here, and the ability to compare them helped me set my expectations higher (25 yrs REAL warranty; how good is a good panel? What is really a good price?) Joe shot me a terrific bid and then answered a ton of my questions via email. He even sent me 3 more quick bids with other options, to compare. No pressure at all-- I had myself set on Panasonic panels and he let me know there were less costly panels available too, with very good warranties.
Then I did it the hard way, and sought out ANOTHER dozen bids from other firms. They all have great hype but the small print did not match up to the sales pitch. Thank goodness I took the time to read the contract. After spending way too much time and energy (nearly 8 weeks!) I circled all the way back around to Joe and Sunworks with one question: Does the Sunworks contract match the promises I see online? Not only was the answer YES, Joe sent me documentation IN WRITING. I wish I had signed with them sooner and saved myself the headache. But hey, by then I REALLY knew this was the best choice.

Installation crew was timely, friendly, efficient. No delays! No errors! The panels have been up and running for over a month now and are exceeding expectations. Sunworks staff emailed and called to update me at each step of the process. The only slight delay was waiting for PGE to give the PTO, and then a follow-up call from me to have Sunworks turn the system on.
Sunworks really has the best comprehensive warranty and I am absolutely confident that they will be around in 25 years should my system need anything. I am already seeing the savings in Feb.
No regrets!

"Sunworks "
Reviewed Dec 18, 2017

The reason we are having our solar through Sunworks is because of the excellent service we had through Joe. He was always quick to respond to our many questions and we never felt pressured during the process.I have no doubt that the upcoming installation will go smoothly as Sunworks has a excellent reputation.

"My system is up and running"
Reviewed Dec 14, 2017

My project went smooth with SUNWORKS from sale ( thanks to Joe) to the moment of turning system on. Guys were extremely helpful and knowledgeable (thanks to William and Jonhy). Excellent in communication, coordination, and in problem solving. I would definitely recommend this company to go green with.

"Met and exceeded my expectations."
Reviewed Dec 13, 2017

The whole process went smoothly. The personnel that I dealt with were very nice and helpful. All my questions were answered. My only complaint was that it was taking a long time to activate the system. I had no contact person other than the salesperson I had initially worked with. I emailed him to see why it was taking so long to activate the service. He never responded. Had he responded my service would probably have been activated a couple of weeks earlier. The problem with the activation though was PG&E's fault. They lost the paperwork that gave them the go ahead to turn it on (proven to be true by paperwork provided to me by Sunworks). Finally, about three weeks after I had assumed I would be changed over to solar, I called Sunworks directly and the woman I spoke to took care of the problem immediately, and I do mean immediately! The next day my solar was turned on and I have been happy with it. It is producing nicely even during the wintertime. After researching solar companies for four years and reading hundreds of reviews, I have to say that this is probably the best company out there. Now, if I can just figure out how to read the PG&E bill I'll be in business.

"Excellent value and service"
Reviewed Dec 13, 2017

Start to finish was 4 months, could have been 3 if I was ready for the install earlier. During that time Joe A. was responsive to my questions. Also during install the workers answered my questions, and it was done in less than 4 hours (could have been 3 hours if I didn't but them so much!). The system has been producing electricity for 2 1/2 months now, and my electric bill dropped to something around 20% of my existing bill for Oct Nov and part of Dec. I have only good things to say about the whole deal, and already recommended SunWorks and SunGage to a friend! No regrets!

"Pro, Easy... AWESOME!"

Sunworks (and their financing partner Sungage) were spectacular. Very pro, very smooth, I couldn't be happier. Did I mention my pg&e bill is practically non existent now? Oh, and I referred a friend and got $250! BOOM

"Couldn't Be Happier!"
Reviewed Jul 27, 2017

Sunworks made the entire installation process so easy! From the beginning, they did a great job of communicating every step of the installation process, so we would know what to expect. Everyone in the office and on the installation team was very responsive to my questions and the installation team was very friendly and professional during the install.

If you are like me, the thought of "going solar" was a bit intimidating and required a great deal of research. I am so glad that I choose Sunworks! I don't often take the time to write a review, but I just can't say enough good things about this company and encourage you to select them for your project!

"Sunworks is OUTSTANDING"
Reviewed May 09, 2017

We are THRILLED with the work Sunworks did, start to finish... The initial bid we received was slightly lower than other bids, and we ultimately had them explore three additional potential systems before signing on. The immediate response and very collaborative approach their sales team provided was exceptional. At no point did I feel any pressure to buy. They simply rand the calculations we asked them to explore and provided us with new quotes based on our requests.

We chose to finance the system, and their team expedited the loan through our local county! The financing was SO EASY.

From the time we 'inked' an agreement, it took less than 3 weeks for them to survey our home and ultimately install our system. The crews who arrived to survey our roof, and to install the system were exceptional. They have all been very professional and efficient. Net result, we are now generating lots and lots of electrons on our roof, days after agreeing to purchase their system, with ZERO hassle. We are THRILLED with our choice to partner with SUNWORKS & predict you will be too.

"Residential roof mount install performed by Professionals."
Reviewed Jan 01, 2017

Our roof mounted solar panels almost look organic on our home. What I mean by organic is they are subtle and blend into our home. I was concerned they would look industrial. Not the case, 9 panels on the front between the two dormers and our stand of Aspens in the yard block or soften most viewing angles (9 additional panels on back). Our salesmen are excellent! Kudos to Joe & Zayith. The "rubber meets the road" on the install. The install team, lead by Brandon & Kody, are the best! They were able to accommodate us on every request; which is quite unusual. The install supervisor, Mike, has been very helpful. There were only a few small hiccups on the entire project and were dealt with immediately. The success of a company is determined by it's staff. SunWorks is an excellent company with a bright future. Thanks for everything Joe & Zayith! Best Regards, Dwane

I shop around for 10 months got way to many estimates what you really need to know is the price per watt. (only to bids hit this mark $2.82) OK then decide what inverter you want i like the solar edge($$$). then look at the panels i got the 280 w hanawha Q-cell very good quality.($$) and don't forget to ask about the warrantys(sunworks its the best).

My only regret is i was to late for nem 1 as pg&e reach there cap..Hope this helps don't procrastinate and get er done..with sunworks

"Great Service"
Reviewed Dec 31, 2016

I worked with Joe to get a deal and my point of contact was Nicole since the installation planning. They were absolutely professionals!

Our first installation date was rained out, and the next installation date was three weeks out since we were at the end of the year. Nicole was able to get the installers to come in three separate times to finish the whole thing before the end of 2016 and we are now done with city inspection and waiting for PG&E to complete the deal.

Very impressive with their service, so much so I am considering buying their stock!

"Sunworks Makes Me Happy! "
Reviewed Aug 10, 2016

From the first meeting with Sheridan, I knew this company would be great to work with. She had answers to all my questions and made me feel that she knew her product. Once the design team had a layout ready, the install happened quickly. There was a small change made at regarding panel placement, but it didn't delay the install. Because of the change, they had to submit the new plans to the county.

This is where the only hiccup occurred. As is typical with government, the county sat on the new plans for a while. I hadn't heard anything for a while, so I contacted Sherridan. She referred me to customer service. I spoke with Adriana, who got to the cause of the delay right away. From there, it was about a week and we were connected to PG&E. Now we are enjoying our new solar system.

I highly recommend this company. They take good care of their customers, do great work and sell a great product.

"Choose SUNWORKS!"
Reviewed Aug 09, 2016

After talking to Solarcity and getting pretty turned off to the whole solar thing, I contacted SUNworks. They don't do these terrible Solar city 20 year lease programs where the company owns your panels AND gets your huge Federal tax credit. If you go with SUNworks, you own the panels, which makes your house worth more money. And they don't use cheap panels from China, so the panels last way longer.

I went with a 12 year loan, at a great interest rate, and I didn't have to pay any money up front. Also I saved a ton of money over what Solarcity would have cost after 20 years. Plus I have American made Sunpower panels, and I'm getting an $8,000 tax credit. The reasons to buy instead of lease are endless.

Please don't lease your solar panels, you're much better off if you buy them, and there's no money down options.

"SunWorks is the BEST!"
Reviewed Jan 26, 2016

I compared quality of components, warranty and cost of my new solar system with 5 other companies. I did my due diligence. Then decided to go with SunWorks because it was a no brainer decision.... very obvious that it was the right decision. The estimate was explained very well, installation was done professionally and PG&E even cooperated and got our home switched over immediately after installation. I recommend SunWorks if you are considering making a solar improvement to your house. Look into it and check around with their competitors. You'll be back to take their deal. I am happy that I did. No regrets....just making power on my roof...everyday.
