"Power to the people"
Reviewed Feb 10, 2015

In September of 2013, EIS completed our solar installation at the Millvale Community Library. We have found their staff to be personal, professional, knowledgeable, and flexible. So much that we are doing two more installations with them in the spring of 2015, and hopefully many more in the years to come!

My 20 panel roof- mounted installation was completed in December 2013. Since then I have recommended EIS to many people. All the people I dealt with from sales through completion were personable and professional and not only knowledgeable but able to explain the technology to newbies like me. I had many questions throughout the process and felt all were clearly answered. I continue to be well satisfied with EIS and very happy to have made this investment.

I met with 5 different solar energy consultants before going solar. The first was at a Home Depot Solar Workshop. The 2nd solar consultant quoted a price of $10.00 per watt. There was contractor #3 & #4. But #5 was the best. He was the only one to actually get on my steep roof and take measurements. And when the price came in at $5.00 per watt, I was sold. That solar consultants company left town about one year later and now he works for EIS. EIS installed my 2nd solar system, an 11KW ground mount array at a cost of $4.00 watt and they did an excellent job. I know a number of solar homeowners who are satisfied EIS customers and if you check out their website you can see that they have completed an impressive number of solar installations. So yes I am biased toward EIS Solar and jealous of you because today you might even get a lower price per watt than I did.

"Residential Solar Panel Installation"
Reviewed Feb 07, 2015

Very satisfied with EIS Solar's professional approach to the technical and financial analysis of our solar installation. EIS documented our home's capacity for solar power generation, analyzed alternative installations with their respective payback periods and provided guidance with respect to the specifics of equipment selection. The installation of 39 panels was completed within two days, tailored to our roof conditions. The installation team was professional in their work and in their respect for our home. While the equipment functions on its own, we were briefed on the controls and our ability to monitor the system's performance. All of the system building department permitting, utility permitting and subsequent registration of our system for the sale of solar energy credits was performed by EIS. We would not hesitate to recommend EIS to others.

"Through EIS my initial intimidation became a joyful success."
Reviewed Feb 06, 2015

As a single woman in her mid seventies and with no technical knowledge, I was intimidated by talk of kwatts and voltage. Luckily, I found EIS. They were understanding, responsive, professional, and always available to answer every question. I had 20 solar panels installed the first half of 2014. I was so pleased with the outcome that I had 6 additional panels installed in December. If I can find anymore sunny space on my property, I will certainly expand again. My experience with EIS is always a joy.

"Love to Watch the Electric Company's Meter Run Backwards!"
Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

Our system was installed in October 2014. I am surprised at how much power it has produced so far given the time of year and occasional snow cover. I can't wait until spring and summer to see what it can really do!

All EIS personnel we met were professional and knowledgeable. They explained how to get our SREC credits, which was a bonus for us as I had no idea there existed this extra little stream of income from our system.

On a nice sunny day, I love to go outside and watch the West Penn Power meter run backwards!

"Super professional business"
Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

We had 55 solar panels on our roof in December. We have been most pleased with our purchase and the professionalism of the entire group at EIS. We live in southern Ohio and have some pretty nasty winters. This means our solar panels are often snow coverd. Even so, our electric bill dropped by one half!! Not bad for the first full month!

"A great experience that continues every morning the sun comes up"
Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

Ever since I purchased my home, I had been looking up on my south-facing roof and thinking "I really should consider doing solar up there". It was not until I met up with EIS at the Pittsburgh Home Show in 2014 that I explored the concept. Right at the show using Google Earth they confirmed I had some good "solar real estate". Over the next month we communicated via email and their sales person, Ian Smith, provided me with a couple of preliminary options. I had Ian come out to the house where he went up on the roof and made several measurements. Turns out we were able to have a 7.4 KW 27 panel array with microinverters (to address shading issues with my chimney) installed for less than what a new compact car would cost. I was sold on the spot and we toasted the deal with some of my homemade wine! At that point EIS took control and handled everything including the difficult permitting process. It could not have been easier. They were very transparent and kept me abreast with everything going on. EIS had everything ready to go by mid April and their crew had the whole system installed, up and running, in a day and a half. It was a beautiful sunny day and my electric meter was spinning like crazy...backwards! My system has operated flawlessly ever since. Over the summer I banked 1400KW that I have been drawing down over the winter. I believe that my entire electrical needs will be met, exactly as planned. Bottom line: EIS is the best company to trust with your solar install.

"Point Breeze/EIS solar installation"
Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

EIS installed our 4.32kW rooftop system in June, 2013. This was done after repeated meetings with couple of different installers and we finally chose EIS as we were extremely satisfied with their sales approach and, frankly, because EIS had done the solar installation at Phipps Conservatory. We could not imagine a better recommendation than that. EIS crews were extremely professional, friendly, clearly had extensive knowledge of both proper installation practices and solar energy in general. Entire staff, from top management to crew, were always available to answer questions, educate us, and check in with us repeatedly in the few months after completion of installation. Even now, if we have a question, we find that the response time either by email or phone is quick and informative. We've had no problem with the system which has supplied all of our electrical needs for at least 6 months out of the year, and we would recommend EIS to anyone considering solar. In case you're wondering, we have NOT received any recompense in any way for this review. By the way, employment practices of companies with which we do business are important to us. We checked on this and management claimed (and crew agreed) that EIS (even though not union) pays well, provides good benefits, and worker retention is strong. When it comes to installation, that means something.

"Right choice"
Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

We strongly recommend this company. From the initial bid, through installation, and after, EIS has been professional and responsive. We had multiple bids and chose right. They like what they do and they do it well.
