    Everything about my experience with Nickels Energy Solutions was great. They clearly explained the whole process before getting started and kept me informed as the project progressed. The installation was done with a minimum of inconvenience to me. They readily worked around my schedule. The crew was respectful and professional. Follow up after completion was really helpful as I had to make a specific request of my power company to make the most of the energy credits I am earning. I highly recommend NES for solar panel installation.

    I'm really glad I chose NES. They are very customer oriented, anticipating everything that could be important to you and making every detail as easy as possible. They set up 99% of the paperwork for you to ensure that you get your rebate and tax credits. My installation looks great and works well. I wish every company I do business with would be as professional and customer focused.

    Nickels Energy Solutions installed solar panels on my home last fall. They know what they are doing. They were very professional and provided me with all the information I would need to in order to make an informed investment in a solar system. They were more than willing to help me with any questions I had about my actual system or the various tax credits I could receive at the federal and state level. I know I can reach out to them with any future problem I may have and they will get back to me right away. You can feel confident in their expertise and business standards when you hire them for your solar needs.
