Sandbar Solar & Electric

For over 15 years, our experienced team of trusted and friendly solar professionals have been providing high-quality consultation, design, engineering, installation and customer service, for residential and commercial clients throughout the entire Monterey Bay and Silicon Valley areas. We do it all in house. No outsourcing or subcontracting of our work - Period! Be sure to ask our competitors if they do the same.

We offer customized solar solutions, including battery back-up and off-grid systems, at competitive prices. We hire the most experienced and qualified technicians available, pay them well and don't cut corners. We aim to be "middle of road" with our bids, but cannot remain a healthy and responsible business by matching the lowest price of our competitors, who may not operate as soundly as we do.

With a 25+ year investment such as solar, we believe the extra cost is worth it, as we plan on being around many years from now to monitor, and if need be, service those jobs that we sold back in the day. Therefore, we recommend that consumers be cautious of the "lowest bid" and "longest warranty" here on EnergySage, which really are only as good as the company standing behind them.

We're family owned and operated, have an A+ rating with the BBB, a long tradition of supporting our local Santa Cruz Community and would love to provide you with a free solar quote today. We're also happy to speak with you personally to answer any questions you may have regarding your specific solar needs. Feel free to give us a call anytime!
