"Solar Chief saved me money and my warranty"
Reviewed Feb 19, 2019

We had a company come in and quote us for solar using Panasonic panels. We really liked what they had to say, but we wanted to get a second opinion. So we called Solar Chief. They came in and spoke with us about the Panasonic Panels. We were informed that we went with the other company who was not certified by Panasonic we would have only gotten a 10 year warranty instead of a 25 year warranty for having a Panasonic certified company install them for us. Not only did Solar Chief come in and save our warranty, they were cheaper on price then the other guys from the first time they walked in the door. The system was just turned on last week and looks great. I would highly recommend Solar Chief to anyone.

"Great Install Team"
Reviewed Feb 04, 2019

The team that installed my solar was very professional. Trip was the main guy that was in charge of my install. Him and his crew did an excellent job. I will definitely recommend Solar Chief to my neighbors.

"Excellent Customer Service"
Reviewed Nov 08, 2018

Solar Chief installed my system in October. The install went very smoothly but a problem was encountered the very next day. The monitoring showed a problem with one of the panels. Solar Chief noticed it before me and called me to ask when they could meet me at my house to correct it. Their guys came out and fixed the connection problem behind the one panel and I was back online.
The crew was very friendly and I would definitely recommend them to anybody looking to install solar.

Called with a litany of questions and concerns about my house and dumping Duke Progress. Ladies in the office walked me through all the steps! They made me feel very comfortable and calmed my nerves. Will be referring the whole neighborhood.

Responded to my quote request quickly, called me the next day and finished my home inspection by the end of the week. They were straight forward with lots of equipments options. Panels look great. Can’t wait to soak up the Michigan sun!

"Run as fast as you can"
Reviewed Aug 08, 2018

This whole experience with the company has just been a nightmare, every step along the way dealing with Solar Chief has brought us only aggravation. My husband and I regret signing that contract.
It has been almost 3 months since we had the solar panels installed (which took them about two weeks to do so and a month after the date they were supposed to be on our roof) we still don’t have a working system. First it was the system not having a working control panel, it took about a month to have that fixed. A long and painful “communication “, if I can call it like that.
After a day of having a working solar panel system it was shut down by an unknown person. Solar chief said it was Santer Cooper... since that answer We have been trying to contact the technician, the representative and even the owner himself. No luck. No one has helped us for 10 days. I am desperate. We spent $50000 on this and we still have to pay electricity bill.
One advice, stay away and run away from Solar chief company. I wish I can turn the time back!!!

"DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!"
Reviewed Jul 18, 2018

It is the most unorganized and unprofessional company I have ever seen. They will never return a phone call. I have personnally been lied to more than once. We have waited months for the system to be repaired when it’s not working properly. When they finally come out at least they correctly fix the issue. I love having solar, but should have never used Solar Chief.

"Great Company!!"
Reviewed May 07, 2018

I would recommend Solar Chief to anyone looking to go solar. They were able to get rid of my power bill. I pay $0.00 to SCE&G just like they promised. I am glad I made the right decision to go solar with Solar Chief.

These guys really know their stuff! Easy to work with, install was done quickly, and I am already happy with the results. Not to mention, they are local if you are in South Carolina!
