Fantastic Crew from Ailey Solar

We hired Ailey Solar based on neighbors' positive experiences (Ailey installed panels on houses to the north and south of us). Ailey’s crew are efficient and proactive. Our project threw them a couple of curve balls, and Ailey pivoted and adapted quickly without any pushback. They work excellently with the Village of Oak Park, and helped us navigate through the paperwork. They also explained aspects of the project in detail, making sure that we understood everything that they needed to do, and they listened to and respected our input. The entire crew were happy to answer any number of questions that arose during the installation process. They also worked well with our contractor, and were overall a great pleasure to work with. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to install solar panels!

Solar panels on garage roof

Project was completed in October 2021. Good communication and no issues from start to finish, panels have been working fine.

Ailey Solar is the same choice I would make if I had to do it again.

First of all, I'm glad to see that Ailey Solar has teamed up with EnergySage. EnergySage was invaluable to us when we were trying to learn about solar and how to interpret and compare the bids we received. Unfortunately at that time Ailey was the only company we were interested in using that was not part of the EnergySage program, which made things just a bit more difficult. But Ailey, specifically their salesman Tony C., made the best presentation and answered every single question we had in a simple and understandable presentation and even talked us through ideas that would not have been in our best interests and presented better long term solutions instead. We knew the moment that Tony left that Ailey was the company that we wanted to do our installation. Even though their initial bid was slightly higher, we found comfortable in knowing that we would be seen as a valued customer and at any point of the ownership of our system, Ailey would be there to assist us in any way possible. And that had proven to be true. Every person who worked on our house, whether it be to design or layout, through to the hookup and installers has been a person who you can tell is smart and knowledgable and pays attention to the quality of their workmanship and the finished product. I have already recommended Ailey Solar to friends and neighbors and have no concerns about writing this review to be read by other EnergySage followers.

Great Communication and Excellent Knowledge

While we're still in the early stages of installing the panels on our house, I wanted to leave a review since I've been so impressed by Ailey so far. They have been wonderful in communication. Tony patiently answered countless emails and questions before deciding with Ailey. Once I signed Eric did a site visit and was very up front with potential risks in the installation process as well as steps we could mitigate risks with. The administrative team has continually kept us up to date with permitting and SREC process. Everyone has been responsive to inquiries. Very happy with the process so far.

A Happy Customer

I decided to add a solar electric system to my house to save money and to do my small part to reduce consumption of fossil fuels. I began my search by consulting with local solar customers, the Illinois Solar Education Association, architects, and home remodelers. Ailey Solar Electric was mentioned often as a long-standing, reputable, and reasonably priced solar installer. I contacted Ailey and two other installers for information and quotes. Interestingly, the other installers recommended solutions that were either unworkable on my multi-faceted roof or did not meet local (La Grange, IL) construction codes. Ailey’s proposal was both workable and cost-effective. I signed up with Ailey and the process went smoothly: • Ailey surveyed my home to determine the optimal system for me – best initial cost and best return on my investment. • In advance, a project manager evaluated my home in detail to ensure that my existing electrical systems could handle the solar system and to address needed upgrades. • Ailey took care of all the complexities of dealing with city zoning, obtaining RECs for electricity generated by the system, obtaining ComEd approval, and integrating into the ComEd grid. • I was informed of progress every step of the way. • The installation occurred on-time and on-budget. I am generating the amount of electricity that was projected for me. I am saving the amount of money on my utility bill that was projected for me. I am a happy customer.
