"Using Solar's Smart was the right choice."
Reviewed Jan 29, 2019

Mark was a pleasure to work with. The project was done before most other companies would even start. It was on time with no additional charges even though my ground mount system was some 500+ feet from my main panel. The trenching was not easy and Mark did what he had to do to get the job done even without complaining about the added expense.
I liked the fact that all the work was done and supervised by Mark himself. The quality of components were first rate. I couldn't be happier with my system and would recommend Solar's Smart to anyone.

"Great experience"
Reviewed Sep 11, 2017

My experience using Solar’s Smart was great. I really can’t imagine it going any smoother. Mark gave me a detailed explanation of the equipment and the overall process & timeline. My home being a manufactured home required that the state of California issue the permit rather than the city, which required some additional research and hoops to jump through. Mark dealt with these hurdles without complaint. Mark and his team were very friendly and professional. The installation of the invertor and conduit hookup to my electrical panel was completed very neatly. All of the cabling on the roof is tidy, and the solar panel array looks streamlined and is a much lower profile than I had expected. In short, on time, on budget, and my meter spins backward! I would not hesitate to recommend Solar’s Smart to anyone.

I received bids from several different companies including Solar City. I chose Solar's Smart because they are a local operations using high quality panels with a good mfg warranty at a reasonable price. They had the permits and install complete with in a blink of an eye with our disruption our house hold. Friendly and considerate workers.
Guess what, they set up a button on my computer that allows me to see my energy production! It says I saved 25kg of co2 today.

"Solar’s Smart really is the smart thing to do"
Reviewed Jan 26, 2016

His presentation showed us what size system we would need and the cost/savings over the life of the system. This made our decision so much easier.

I have been looking at going solar for 20+ years, crunching the numbers again and again.

My system is not a “cookie cutter” rooftop mount system. It is a ground mount system some distance from the main panel.

The entire process went very smoothly. He was even able to make quick changes needed due to a supply shortage from his panel vendor.
He did this without sacrificing system performance or impacting the schedule.

The system is actually performing above the anticipated output ! I am looking forward to a Net “0” energy bill from SCE.

Web access for both the panel and inverter help me track the production. Pretty cool.

Upon completion and inspection we received the permit to operate from SCE in just a few days! One of my wife’s friends said it took months to get their permit to operate (NOT Solar’s Smart. Another installer)

So, Mark not only knows the design of the system , he knows how to properly get the paperwork done.

"Solar has been an excellent investment Thank You Solar Smart"
Reviewed Jan 24, 2016

We, my wife and I, decided to install solar on our home in April of 2013, I can now say it was an excellent decision. I found Mark Miller of Solar Smart, looked at our home, evaluating and designing a solar system for us. We felt confident we had found the best contractor to complete the job. It was necessary to move the service entrance and install a new main panel, as well as an 18 panel system. From the time I gave him the deposit, permits and completion, Solar Smart was the right contractor for us. Now after storms and the test of time I can honestly say that installing solar was an excellent investment and thank you Mark and Solar Smart for an electric bill that went from about or over $200.00 per month to under $100.00 per YEAR.
