We are very pleased with the quality of work.

Rick Brown did an impeccable job of not just installing the tiles, but also explaining the process in a way that we could understand. We knew exactly what we were getting. In addition, when one of the panels came loose months later, Rick was there that week to fix the issue without a problem.

Great Crew and Install

The Solshine experience was thorough and executed with courteous professionalism.

Absolutely recommend!

Great system, great design, great ongoing availability for my followup questions. SolShine took the time required to understand my usage, needs and plans. They designed and installed the best system for my house and for me, which turned out to be a no-battery, grid-tied system. Installation was fast and the system has operated problem-free. They facilitated the paper work with the power company. I have since sold the house and plan to have SolShine design and install a system at my new home soon. I highly recommend SolShine.

Excellent installation

Rick Brown of Solshine energy installed a 5.22 kwh system on our south facing standing seam metal roof. No penetrations were made to the roof and a 12 month energy estimate was provided before installation based on our location. Our energy production has exceeded that estimate. After several months we had one panel not fully producing and Rick addressed the issue immediately and we have had no further problems. Only wish I would have done it soon. Rick has been great, would highly recommend.

Excellent service

Installation went smoothly. He hooked us up with an app that tracks the power generated and as a special touch added an outlet to charge our cell phones if power goes out. Rick is very responsive to post installation support requests such as when my wireless network changed and the app had to be connected to the new network.

Excellent experience, excellent company!

RIck and the crew at SolShine installed a 10kW array and a grid-interactive Sol-Ark inverter with battery backup on our new house. They were incredibly professional and very efficient throughout the whole process. The proof is in the pudding as they say, and we generated just under 50kW of power on 22-Dec...the 2nd shortest day of the year. I can't wait to see what we will be generating on long summer days. Bottom line: Great company, great people, and I would call them again in a heartbeat for any solar or electrical work.
