Residential Solar Installation

I got a knock at my door regarding a free solar quote which sparked our interest about going solar. I got a quote from a national seller which was ok. Like any quote I shopped around a few different places. Most of the national installers seemed pretty expensive. I found this place, which was really local, and gave them a call. I worked with Ray and we sat down and he educated me more than anyone else had. He knew all the answer for our area. Their quote was the best and on top of it they're local! I got a great system installed by friendly employees. There's no doubt I made the right choice by going with IRE and will be happy to recommend them in the future! Thanks guys!
