We had a great experience with Brandon Mezzanato and SolarMax. Truly a 5-Star experience. SolarMax is well organized and kept us informed throughout the process. They provided top rated solar panels and microinverters and were thousands of dollars less than quotes we received from other vendors (and those other vendors ...

"Great Job completed faster than expected"

After shopping around, I decided to go with SolarMax due to their pricing, warranty, hardware and customer service. Other companies offered similar or lower pricing, but their systems did not use micro inverters and offered a shorter warranty on the hardware. Their customer service did a great job communicating with ...

Our choice to go solar was dropped, but it had nothing to with the great experience and service provided by energysage or SolarMax. They were one of my leading choices based upon their responsiveness, pricing, and quoted equipment and service.
