    Good company to deal with. Very prompt and responding to inquiries. Only complaint is it took them a long time to install my system, but only because they were so busy with previous orders. Would highly recommend this company if you are considering going to solar

  • "They did a good job"

    Reviewed Jan 22, 2021

    Kasselman installed our rooftop solar panels in September 2019. The office staff were extremely helpful in guiding us through the process step-by-step. They were very accessible by phone and email.The project was completed within a reasonable timeframe. There were some minor scheduling delays but they really didn’t matter in the end. In the 16 months since installation we have had zero problems with the system.

    My only concern is that in the winter the snow and ice slides off the panels all at once and I’m really glad it’s on the roof facing the backyard and not over a door that we use regularly. None of the companies we received bids from ever mentioned this is an issue. The industry should address this problem and offer snow guards as an option for the project. But overall we were very pleased with Kasselman.

    meh.

    The positive, Customer Service was great, always quick responses. Install, when it happened, was quick.

    The negative, lack of communication. Suggestion for Kasselman, create a page for customer to visit to see project status and updates. Was not expecting 3 months to complete project and still unclear whether this will qualify for the 2020 tax credits. Here's hoping! All for a very expensive, and thus far, poorly working east facing solar system.

    Real world results, underwhelming. If your roof is east facing, think again before installing solar. The 7.125 kWp system they installed for me will well below the 6,946 kWh/year (+ or - 10%) quoted in my Solar Proposal. The last 30 days saw 45 kWh produced...or on a cloudy day like today 885 wH...not even enough to cover running a single small space heater for the day. Granted the summer months should see better results but at this rate 45 kWh x 12 months = 540 kWh...well shy of the 6,946 kWh/year (+ or = 10%) pitched.

    Lastly. If using their financing connections there may be additional charges for NSEA and VSECU accounts/memberships as well as costs to the utility company for power generated prior to net meter install. If I had it to do again, I would have stayed with DIY.
