Love, love, love Energy Sage!! After researching approx. 10 solar companies, I chose Repower by Solar Universe. So far I'm thoroughly satisfied with my interaction with Jeremy. I can be pretty picky and he was very patient answering my MANY questions and needs. I'll share my complete experience upon completion of my project next week. I'm hopeful I'll love, love, Repower as well. We shall see.
I actually looked into quite a few solar companies before making my decision 1. to go solar and 2. who to go with. There are a TON of options it seems but really very few GOOD options. I ended up deciding to buy the solar system instead of leasing (which I am very happy I did). I was considering leasing through SunRun, SolarCity (which primarily lease) or buying through The Solar Company and Solar Universe. Let me just start by saying, you can have all these people over to your house if you want but you really are wasting your time. No company stands up to the quality of Solar Universe!
I had Ben, who is their energy consultant, come over and he was SO HELPFUL. I was able to break down with him objectively what the other companies were offering compared to what my goals were (obviously save money and produce solar). Once again, let me save you time and headache, if you don't want 5 different people coming over to your house trying to sell you garbage, have Ben consult you! He is a straight forward guy who is extremely knowledgable and helpful. He was so helpful I ended up asking him for recommendations for some roofing I needed done (which was also great). I didn't work with any of their other consultants so I cant speak to that but he was great.
Finally the time came to install my solar and just like my preceding experience, the work that was done was once again top notch! It's the little details that matter from installing great looking low-profile panels, to painting the conduit (my neighbor has solar done by SolarCity and all the conduit is not painted and exposed, looking not great) it all looks great.
In the end they were fast with the installation (1 day!) and the permitting (next day!).
So I am very very happy and cant wait to be free of PG&E's RIDICULOUS BILLS. Thanks Ben and everyone involved and I am super happy to show off my house in Livermore.
I just purchased a 5.5Kw system installed by Solar Universe right after the July 4th weekend. Twenty LG 275w panels with microinverters.
I got 4 quotes from different solar venders and Solar Universe was very competitive. Jeremy was my solar rep and he was outstanding in keeping in contact with me throughout the whole process. He was very patient with my questions and was 100% dedicated to getting a system that met my requirements.
Solar Universe presented my proposal in a very nice report without any pressure to purchase. They worked with me regarding some electrical issues and took care of it from their side. Install went very fast and smooth and the panels are working great. They installed the panels and painted all electrical conduits to match my house. The electrical install was done professionally.
They handle all the paperwork that needs to be submitted to PGE and keep you updated on the status of the switch over. They set up the website portal so you can get web updates on your panel production(if you have micro inverters). It really has been very hassle free big house upgrade.
I recommend everyone to call Solar Universe (Livermore) for a quote when you are ready to look into solar. You won't be disappointed
One particular vendor was incredibly rude and high pressure to get to my house for a quote and very high pressure during the quote process and after. Their price was also double what Solar Universe price for a 5.1Kwh system. Solar Universe was not rude or high pressure at all. Do not let other vendors bad behavior tarnish the reps of other companies. I learned a lot during this process.
A big shout out to my Yelp friend Kelleye B who has been a solar buddy in this whole process. :)
