"not the cheapest but the BEST!!"
Reviewed Feb 06, 2018

I am a picky shopper and after reviewing all the different bids and equipment options I met with 3 of the top choices and Solare Energy really stood out. I also Googled them and read their reviews on other sites like Yelp, BBB, and Google... They not only didn't raise their prices after the site visit, they also clearly had the most technical knowledge and no pressure sales experience. I also added a Tesla Powerwall because SDGE has new rates and there is a state rebate:)

They were not the cheapest of all the oinstallers, but after review and sales experieiince they were the best!

Good luck goiing solar:) !!
