  • "Home installation"

    Reviewed Jan 31, 2019

    Panels were installed 3 years ago. Their presentation was straight forward. They were good to work with, everything was installed professionally, and they were neat. They helped with our getting federal tax deduction and a sharply reduced loan with help from the state. Living in NE Ohio, it will take longer (looks to be ~12 years) to recover costs. Energy used in part to charge a Chevy Volt, so "driving on sunshine."

Dovetail is customer focused and mission minded, not money driven. Honesty, integrity, and environmental stewardship are at the core of our values. We design your system to be high performing, clean, safe, low maintenance and durable. We utilize top quality components from suppliers that have both a proven track record of performance, and a commitment to support what they sell so that your system will work properly and reliably for many years.

We consciously buy most of our components from USA manufacturers - a number of whom are located in Ohio and Michigan. This embodies our sustainable business practices, lowers our (and your) carbon footprint, as well as, supports and grows green jobs in our region.

Dovetail is an Ohio licensed electrical contractor (License #29397). We also have licensed electricians for several surrounding states. In addition, we have a licensed Ohio Professional Engineer on our design team who is able to perform structural analysis on buildings and produce Ohio stamped drawings for permitting. We ensure that all our systems meet or exceed NEC electrical code, safety codes, as well as, comply with all Federal, state and local building codes, requirements and regulations. We research applicable zoning restrictions, and provide assistance in resolving issues, such as applying for a BZA variance.

In addition, we employ a full time safety manager focused on ensuring we and our subcontractors meet or exceed all OHSA regulations, and employ best practices for a safe and healthy work environment. We maintain a Drug Free Work Environment. All of installation crews are goaled to obtain a minimum OSHA 10 safety certification, with an expanding subset certified at OSHA 30.
