Misleading

The installation was great, but the reality of the "savings" that we were sold was so misleading! I feel foolish for not double-checking the information they gave us. They sold us on the "buy-back" and the "roll-over" but the reality is they have no control over that and the sales guy "Dr." Ken didn't mention that those change on the daily and there's no guarantee that you'll be able to find any sort of program that actually fulfills those "promises." If we had it to do again we wouldn't. So disappointed...we had been singing their praises and now we're warning everyone to stay away because of their dishonesty.

Absolutely Horrible Customer Service

I had my solar panels installed in May 2020 by Kayo Energy which changed to Vivant, a Sunrun Company after my purchase. After install the panels worked for less than 12 months, no longer functioning since March 2021 with no resolution or maintenance from the company. they installed the panels stating they'd done a full roof inspection and the roof was in good shape. Sadly this was not true and I've found that I have a leak that has been there for years and has caused my daughters flooring in her room to collapse and has caused water damage to my garage ceiling and walls. I requested to have the panels removed in April, so I could have the roof replaced and the water damage and mold removed. Unfortunately the company would like to charge me $5610 to remove them, which is outrageous given they have not worked in >12 months. When escalating the company was only willing to discount the amount by 50%, again an amount I cannot afford and should not need too since they own me the back payments of 156.00 per month for 15 months of payments equaling $2340.00. Unfortunately the company does not want to work with me, I asked for them to be removed so I could fix the roof and they could return them and I'd continue with my lease. At this time, I simply would like help with lease termination and removal of the panels. I've been calling since 4/20 with not one returned call from them, after multiple guarantees. This phone call I'm on now has been One Hour and 22 mins of hold music as the customer service rep said she wanted to speak to her supervisor and never returned.

Vivint solar

I have had Vivint Solar since February, 2020. Ryan Tall, my sales agent did an excellent job informing me on all aspects of solar. Ryan answered all my questions and kept me advised from start to finish. He sized my system so I would have minimal Duke energy bills. I have a lease agreement and couldn’t be happier. I have called customer service 2 times since installed system with questions. Never had a problem with them. They took care of my complaints expeditiously, within minutes! Since install, my Duke bills have been a constant $13.85/month. Thank you Vivint and thank you Ryan Tall! Highly recommend Vivint!!! Gregory Bailey Deltona, FL

Awful is an understatement

Worst decision I have ever made going with VIVINT!!!! Where do I begin.... If Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Kaczynski and Ted Bundy were my neighbors and looking for solar I would not even recommend Vivint to them! First it took about 6-8 extra weeks for my panels to be turned on after the install then they said it would. Second they said we would not have a pigeon problem because the panels were so low profile and close too the roof that pigeons would not get under them. Guess what we had a pigeon problem, then they wanted a couple hundred dollars to install pigeon guards. Now we noticed a couple of high electric bills. We called them and they said "Oh you are not producing as much electricity as we originally calculated." ( They also said at the time we purchased them that they would be monitoring this, which they clearly were not.) Anyway they said they would start looking into it and call us in 3 business days, they did not. We had to call them back and they said the call did not get "processed" correctly and they would call us back in another 3 business days. I have had 3 houses in 2 states and have never had this poor of customer service.

Vivant Solar - Deception

The Vivant Solar Representative came to our house, he said our electric bill would be reduced to $25 per month. He also said the government would credit us back $10k for the solar. Neither of these two things happened. Fast forward two years, we decided to sell our home and move. We were required to pay off the lean/loan before we could sell. This is one of my biggest regrets. I would not recommend Vivant Solar to anyone in the future. Not a good company, the Rep was deceptive.

Lies and False Promises

I have been lied to by almost every single Vivint employee. From the initial salesman all they way to the David Bywater. The customer service is horrible. Phone calls just get transferred to India. Emails and texts do get answered. In fact Vivint contacted me saying my bill was to high and that there was a miscalculation and the wrong system was installed. Now David Bywater, the CEO, says those employees don’t know what they’re talking about. The blueprints show there is room on my roof for more panels yet Vivint says there is no room. Other solar companies have looked and said there is more room for more panels but Vivint refuses to show any proof or justification and says nope there is no room on your roof. You signed the contract so that’s it. I do not recommend this company. Dishonest employees and a company without ethics. Unsatisfied Customer, Adam Kraatz
