  • "Poor Customer Service"

    I had my Solar System installed by Standard Energy Solutions approximately 9 months ago, and as a result of the installation I have a roof leak. I called to see if someone could come and check it out, but they have not sent out anyone yet, it's been a week. I called again and I'm still waiting to hear back from a service tech about my leaking roof. It seems to me once you spend your money on the system, they are done with you and don't care about problems that may arise. So be careful about doing business with this company.

  • "Very difficult to work with"

    Reviewed Jan 25, 2020

    Steve and Bobby seemed very pleasant before we started the project, however, after the work was done and items in the contract were not executed upon, they became completely unresponsive to emails and calls. It has been 6 months of following up, to no avail.

    I would be very cautious about working with Standard Energy Solutions.

    "techs replace microinverter and didn't mention wires chewed thru"

    This summer I noticed on the Enphase site that one panel was not reporting. Standard Solar installed both our arrays. Enphase sent us a new inverter. I contacted SES (the successor owner) to have them replace the inverter. It took over a month to schedule a tech. When the tech came out and replaced the inverter, They made no mention of the wires chewed thru. They took a photo and left. I found out a week later when I asked their "customer service" about why the inverter was still not working. The tech had given the photo of the chewed wires to her. No mention to us and we were home when the tech replaced the inverter. No mention to us from SES until I contacted them. "Customer service" sent us a contract to install critter guard. I requested the wiring repair and declined the critter guard. "Customer service" replaied via email."OK, thank you for letting me know" 2 follow up emails to SES and ZERO reply to scheduling the repair. Over a month has pasted without any repair scheduled. My house is under contract for sale and the buyer is expecting the panel to work. SES is aware of this. Standard Solar was terrific about customer contact and service. SES is terrible. I will not recommend them to anyone.
