Great Solar company

Taylor Energy was recommended to us by our builder and they did not disappoint. They communicate with you the whole time. I had many questions along the way and they were always responsive. Installation was quick and painless. I would highly recommend this local company over any corporate solar company.

Choose Taylor Energy

If you are thinking of adding solar to your business or residence Taylor Energy should be your choice. My wife and made the mistake of hiring a different company in the fall of 2021 and long story short, after they completed the install we waited 13 months with many excuses or simply no communication to find out they had installed a battery system that would likely never be approved in CA. We ended our relationship with them and hired an attorney to help up get the equipment removed and our money refunded. We missed a year and a half of solar savings and were prepared to forget about having solar on our home. In February 2023 we decided to try again. We got bids from two local companies, both with good reputations and the best in equipment. Pricing was very similar but the reason we chose Taylor really came down to first impressions. From my first contact with Selena, a call from Tory and a visit at our home with Tory and Sean (the owner) as well as later contacts with Brandon and Tristan (their electrical contractor) they were professional, courteous, very knowledgeable, compassionate about our situation and in Tory‘s words “…we would love to be a part of the redemption story here…”. Sean sealed the deal that first visit by explaining battery storage to me and helping me understand what went wrong with the first company and why it would not happen again. The best part is we started the conversation with Taylor in late February and had PTO with PG&E on June 23 and we’re up and running. This all happened while Taylor Energy was slammed with work due to PG&E’s change from NEM 2 to NEM 3. If you want to add Solar and work with a company that does what they say, communicates each step of the way and are just plain good people to deal with then call Taylor Energy. You will not be disappointed. Bill McKee

An Impressive Team, A Solid System!

We really appreciated the opportunity to work with you and your team.  It was very clear from the early days of our solar and battery storage design discussions that Taylor Energy stood out as one of the strongest in technology and practical solutions design. When we moved into proposal and contracting, I knew I was with the right team. You have an impressive combination of technical experience and personal integrity that I admire. With our system being a fire rebuild on top of Covid related supply chain issues, it required creative thinking. I remember your patience and diligence and I was happy that you were able to add the Powerwalls to the PV solution.  We are very happy with the system.  Your team did an excellent job with the layouts and overall workmanship.  The system is solid and it works well.  We’ve had dozens of utility power fails in the past few months and it is really nice to go off grid with confidence!

Excellent Local Solar Company

Taylor Energy was seriously a dream to work with. I work in an industry that deals a lot with contractors and Taylor went above and beyond any company I've dealt with before. They were extremely timely in regards to follow up questions and really the whole entire process. Hearing horror stories from other solar companies and their timelines I went into the experience with pretty low expectations. I can honestly say they blew me out of the water. The install crew were a bunch of rockstars installing during a really bad heat wave. I really could go on forever about how amazing this local company is but their work speaks for itself. If you are looking for a local Sonoma County company Taylor Energy is the company for you.

I highly recommend Taylor Energy!

When we decided to go solar, I responded to several ads from the big solar companies and spoke with various salespeople at length about the services they offered. Then, in the interest of staying local, I decided to check out Taylor Energy. To be honest, I didn’t think a smaller local company could compete with the larger companies either in terms of price or speed of installation. Thankfully, I was wrong! After all the research I did, I feel confident that Taylor Energy provided better pricing and a much faster turnaround time than any of the larger companies. In terms of service, all the people at Taylor Energy were helpful, kind, down-to-earth, and definitely knew their business. They worked with us closely to determine the optimal solar panel arrangement and inverter location. They smoothly navigated the permit, inspections, and PG&E details. The installation was efficient, it looks great, and I feel confident about their workmanship and warranties. Best of all, we were able to support a local business and get to know some new people in our community. I highly recommend Taylor Energy!
