    "Excellence in analysis, proposal, and execution"

    Reviewed Mar 18, 2016

    We chose Ally because their proposal was clear - and we could discuss it in person, face to face - and the price was several thousand dollars less than the national solar companies. We liked the fact that they are a local company. We had known them through electrical work they did for us - installing fixtures and fixing a switch in our old house - so gave them a chance to get our solar business as well. As we moved through the permitting and installation process, there were tweaks needed - e.g., the conduit in from the road was not big enough to allow upgrading as high as originally proposed, and the City of Berkeley required roof strengthening. Ally modified the proposal, was clear in cost changes and their implications, and kept things moving. In fact, to allow most prompt installation, they kept us ahead of a big job on their books that would have delayed by a month, and instead installed while we were on vacation - all possible because the installation work is external. We were present for the City inspection and the inspector complimented Ally's workmanship and thoroughness. The system works well and it has been easy to communicate with Ally as we learn how to monitor performance.

  • "Ally is excellent"

    Reviewed Jun 30, 2015

    I have used Ally twice in the last 2 years. The first time, I needed to have my existing solar panels moved to a different place on my roof, and they came up with a great plan to mount racks on my garage and move all 36 panels there. This worked out very well - the plan also included replacing my ancient inverters with a brand new one.

    This year, with the purchase of an electric car, I wanted to add some more panels to increase my generation capacity, and they once again came through - they put 10 more 280W panels on the roof, and installed micro inverters to be able to monitor each panel. I called several places, and they were the only ones who were willing to modify an existing solar setup.

    In each case they were professional, showed up on time, cleaned up and did excellent work, which was reflected in the quick and painless passing of the inspection, for which they were present.

    I would recommend them to anyone, especially if you have a solar project that is not your standard installation.

  • "Great service"

    Reviewed Jun 14, 2015

    Ally was top notch from beginning to end. Nur came to our home and educated us about all of our options with solar. Once we chose the service we wanted, the installation went without a hitch and they worked in tandem with our roofer. It looks great and we can't wait to see how much our bill goes down. Highly recommend Ally Solar and Electric.

    "Ally system install & upgrade exceeded all expectations"

    Reviewed Jun 12, 2015

    We recently completed our Albany (CA) addition and hired Ally Electric to reinstall and upgrade our PV solar system. I received a prompt response that was attractive compared to other (larger) local electric companies. I spoke with the owners directly when discussing/negotiating contract details and they checked in throughout the project. The crew was courteous, clean and professional (quicker than I thought they would be, too). My Ally experience was very positive overall, and I have since recommended a few friends and contractors contact them for quotes. (And all seem to be happy with the results).
