  • "Impressed at the Starting-Gate"

    First in a Series:

    I am writing today, having completed stage-1 - research, viewing multiple quotes, and final selection of Solar Optimum to manage our conversion to solar power.

    To start the process, Energy Sage helped us by offering valuable resources and links to public, private, and other sources of information. As a nonprofit, Energy Sage provides a unique environment of serving as a guide in obtaining quotes with no sales pressure or profit motives.

    So, we really are just at the beginning. However, I have been impressed with Solar Optimum through the difficult tasks of defining goals and the path to installing a system that will work best for us. So I wanted to document how we reached this important stage.

    The primary impetus to write a review for Solar Optimum at this early stage is due to the extraordinary help and support we received from Sean Sprague at Solar Optimum.

    I especially appreciate Sean's working with me on all the facets of going solar and producing multiple technical and financial scenarios. I have a degree in Applied Environmental Sciences, so finding a way to get solar has been internally compelling.

    As a scientist, I know how aggravating the many questions I ask can be. Yet, throughout this period of several weeks, Sean paid astute attention to detail,
    with professionalism, an affable sense of humor, and an impressive approach to supporting our decision-making. There has not been a single moment of sales pressure nor even a hint of frustration. And Sean offered an always-transparent manner in presenting many different options and points for careful consideration.

    In addition, Sean's handling of discussions about the diverse technical possibilities and finances has been informative, comfortable, assuring, and supported by an impressive array of examples and data, especially compared to others we spoke with through the decision process.

    Now, we are ready to let the work begin! We are very much looking forward to working with Solar Optimum through the implementation phases, confident that we can work together with a professional partner to expedite every step of the way.

    One other point, the other staff at Solar Optimum also have been amazingly attentive in handling the many calls back and forth - professional, pleasant, listening carefully, and sure to follow up in a much-appreciated, timely manner.

    Thanks to Solar Optimum for the great help in getting to the starting gate. More to follow as we proceed.

    I initially had a poor experience with excessive marketing messages in Energysage (I am deleting it now because it is no longer relevant), but after leaving a negative review I was very surprised to receive a direct phone call from Solar Optimum's VP of Marketing to understand better what happened, and to apologize for the issues. I definitely appreciated his concern to reach out personally, and to assure me that the issue had been resolved on their end. I was impressed at, and appreciative of, the response -- thank you, Rainier.

    This company was great, they took care of everything and all I had to do was sign a few forms. They installed the system for our small San Diego home last year, during the COVID lockdown. I was concerned but everything went smoothly and we essentially just pay SDG&E a small amount for gas each month. I got a small hot tub and we run it all the time, but it costs us pretty much nothing. I plan to contact Optimum about possibly adding a battery, since there are already talks of low-E days and I would not be surprised if we had some blackouts during heat waves this summer. The state of CA is offering generous subsidies for purchasing batteries, so it's worth investigating. I highly recommend this company.
