ground mount

From start to finish the experience was very smooth. The initial contact was a little difficult through direct contact as I did not get an official response until I went through Energy Sage. That initiated contact and then everything was fine . Actual interaction with the APS salesman was quick and professional. Total time for face to face contact was about an hour overall and the discussion about the process was clear and efficient. Once the work began the initial crew did a fine job organizing and accomplishing the set up for the array addition. The second crew consisting of the electricians worked steadily completing the panel assembly and wiring to and within the house. All of this was accomplished under adverse weather conditions from sleet to rain to snow, frozen ground and then mud. Either way, all work was done diligently and without complaint. All in all, APS took care of everything and we are very satisfied. We look forward to connecting the app so we can monitor the systems contribution to lowering our electric bill.

Excellent communication, professional staff

Forrest was great to work with, always available to answer questions and help me out whenever I needed with my solar pv shstem. I'll be calling in a few years to discuss geothermal as well :)

Great Experience

APS has been great to work with! Multiple employees were easy to get in touch with and kept me updated through the process. Everyone was respectful of my property and my time. It was a great experience overall and I have already recommended them to a friend who I know is in the market.
