Solar Installation

The installers, especially the Forman , John did a great job. They were very professional and meticulous. The team routed the electrical piping so that most of them were hidden from view and answered any questions that came up during the installation. I would recommend this company to anyone thinking of going solar!

Customer Service horrible

Had nothing but problems from when I signed the contract. Was told they had my panels only to be told 2 weeks later then we're out of stock only to be told 3 months later I go could switch to lesser panel. They only care about there bottom line and no customer is not always right. They will just fight with you. Got with Hytech in Bay Shore used them the 1st time and should of used them again.

I was very pleased with the entire process. The communication all along was key and made us less worried about this whole experience. From Kyle our salesperson who was patient with all the details we requested, to Byron who did his best to move our installation date forward to accommodate our travel plans and finally to the crew who came to install the system for us. Darrell, Justin, Joey and Billy were very kind, respectful and professional. The only suggestion would be an improvement on the installation timeline and collaboration with town of brookhaven.

Incredible experience; beyond happy with Empower Solar

Amazing Sunpower panels, world class service and outstanding experience. We initially installed 43 panels a year ago (1/2021) and then added an additional 12 panels several months later. We have generated so much energy and the savings keep coming. Kyle Solomon is the reason we started with Empower, and keep recommending it to our friends. Kyle was professional, knowledgeable and knew the product inside out. He was patient with all our detailed questions and provided much assurance that this investment was worth it. He was able to calculate the numbers and articulate the entire process in a way that anyone could understand. We never felt rushed or pressured when we talked to Kyle. He was extremely professional and we couldn't have ask for a better Sales Professional. Byron was extremely efficient and patient with us as well. He gave us systematic updates every 2 weeks and we felt he guided and hand-held us through the entire installation process. He got our plans approved by the DOB so expediently and our panels installed in such a short timeline. Byron then coordinated with Jared (who came to install). We then had Alexandra coordinate our 12 add-on panels; again Jared came to install. I wanted to thank you Empower and the staff we've dealt with for all the help they've provided from start to finish. There are a lot of solar companies out there and you guys made the experience as comfortable and reassuring as possible. And you were mindful with our request to get it installed ASAP. IF YOU'RE GOING TO INSTALL SOLAR PANELS- GET THEM ALL INSTALLED IN ONE SHOT. DON'T UNDERSHOOT THE NUMBER AND ADD PANELS LATER. The only criticism I can give is that when they came to install the additional 12 panels-- they put too many panels on 1 string so the breaker kept going off-- leaving us with days to weeks without production on multiple panels. It took 6 site visits over 3 months (May-July 2021) to trouble shoot out which string was overloaded and to fix the problem. Overall, we felt not only did we get the most reliable solar panels in the market; the buying/installing experience was equal in caliber to the reputation of the solar panels. You guys live up to the brand of Sunpower. Thanks again for the great great experience.

2nd Install of SOLAR Panels - EMPOWER is best value for your money outlay

I came back to my EMPOWER installer from 2009 to put in another set on the household roof. My 1st 2009 install was 29 Sunpower Panels. They are producing electric better than advertised, then. This 2022 install was for 13 more panels. Todays panels are wider than the 1st install tho smaller in this install project, the new ones number provide More KWH of output. The time to complete install was shorter than in 2009. Both Jobs were done excellently. The now monitor system let me see grid usage vs power produced for both systems. This is a GREAT improvement from 2009. I am already looking to install a 3rd set in about 5 years. SUNPOWER has proven their equipment is the BEST use of my money. EMPOWER is my installer of choice on Long Island.
