  • "Great company"

    Reviewed Mar 13, 2019

    I met with several solar companies and Southern Current was the runaway winner for me. They were honest and upfront about the process and what I could expect from my system. They communicated with me every step of the way and I always knew exactly what was happening and when to expect the system to be installed. I had a 13 kW system installed which will cover just about all of my energy needs. We've been up and running for close to a month now and on good, sunny days I've seen the system generate much more power than I would need on a typical day. Even on cloudy days, it generates more power than I anticipated. I'm very happy and looking forward to years and years of clean energy and paying next to nothing on my utility bill.

    Southern Current is a great team to partner with if you want to install solar. I've used them for 2 separate phases. I started with 30 panels and after 4 years decided to add an additional 30 panels.

    Southern Current helped me get the right system for my home. A very knowledgeable team that was a pleasure to work with, from start to finish. They took care of the entire process, including scheduling inspections and hooking up to the grid. I was also kept up to date along the way, and questions were answered promptly. Well written and thorough documentation. Feels good to be running everything at home on the sun.

    I received great customer service from Southern Current. The people I dealt with were very knowledgeable. I had a strict, short timeline to get the system installed and functioning and the company was prompt and accommodating at every turn. If I had a question, they were back in touch with me the same day with an answer. Very happy with my choice of company!

  • "Solar installation"

    Reviewed Mar 15, 2018

    Had a fairly large residential system installed by Southern Current. They were timely, professional, and courteous at each step of the installation. No third party installers to deal with and they take care of pretty much everything and the process is fairly seamless. Actual install was done in 2 days and I couldn't be happier with their service. I enthusiastically recommend them.

  • "Excellent Experience!"

    Reviewed Jan 15, 2018

    In late 2017 Southern Current installed a 14kwh Enphase system on my roof and I couldn't be happier. They walked me through each step and even completed the installation a little early. They were knowledgeable and professional. I plan on adding a whole house battery and more solar in the future and I will be going back to Southern without question!

  • "Outstanding Solar Company"

    Reviewed Jan 06, 2018

    My experience with Southern Current has been excellent. From their first information meeting, in which they carefully laid out the installation process, to their support in the months following installation, their sales people and installers were highly professional, thorough, and careful. After assessing our energy needs and calculating the conditions on our roof, Southern Current projected that my system would cover 69% of our energy needs. I have tracked the production carefully over the past two years. In the first year, our system produced 71% of our energy. In the second year, which has just ended, it produced 73%. It will pay off the cost of the installation in about 7 years, after which our system will be generating income every year. Anyone who cares about the environment and wants a sound investment should talk to the folks at Southern Current.
