Made everything so easy, great service!

We were interested in going solar, but had some bad experiences with some other solar representatives. We found CM Solar through Jorge came out and talked us through everything. He was helpful and not pushy. We ended up choosing CM Solar because of the personal service they said they would supply and they delivered! The offered a great price and great service. Su kept us informed through the entire process. They did each and every thing they said they would do along the way and with exceptional service. We signed our contract June 1 and were fully operational on June 27th. We highly recommend CM Solar Electric.

Going solar is overwhelming but these guys helped make it easy!

Overall I had a great experience with CM Solar. Very friendly crew, competitive rates, professional and quality work. My only frustration was finding that my system was not big enough to cover my energy use for my old, inefficient house. This was in part my fault since I had not been in the home long enough to know what our actual use would be, but I do wish they had made this a little clearer up front since I am now making payments for my solar (I bought) and a paying SDG&E to run my AC when I was under the impression I would have ore than enough power to cover my use. The only other issue I had was with some sloppy finish work around the panel they installed. I had to ask them to come back out to fix it, which they did quickly and apologetically. In the grand scheme of things this was small though and well worth the better price they gave me compared to the several other companies I compared when shopping. That aside, these guys bent over backward for me, were always polite and accommodating. Their crew worked quickly and professionally and have been monitoring my system since. Everything is working great now and I only pay $9 a month for my SDG&E bill (without using AC). They helped me to get my system financed at a very good rate and get my tax credit which saved a ton. They also replaced my roof while they were at it for a very reasonable price! All in all, I am happy with their service and would not hesitate to recommend them. Just do your homework and be sure you know how much of your energy use your system will cover to avoid any surprises.

I think my team is awesome

Yeah, I'm a founding member, but all of our members are founding members. We get tons of compliments from vendors, partners and most importantly- our customers! I think we all deserve a great review, because we love what we do, and we do it well! Sincerely, Manny Renteria

great work guys!

My solar system was originally installed in 2010 by Egg Solar. The ratings below are associated with work performed by CM Solar Electric this year, 2014. This year 2014 CM Solar Electric has taken over the care and maintenance for my system. I am very pleased with the service provided by CM Solar Electric. They are responsive, answer my phone calls and emails. The work they performed for me this past July 2014 was done as promised, on time and quality workmanship. All of their staff has been very professional and helpful to me as a solar system owner.
