A superb company

Brighten Solar expanded our solar array and installed a battery in 2021, and the CEO of the company, Jeremy Favier, has been assisting me in applying for rebates. I cannot say enough good things about Brighten Solar. The whole process has been outstanding, from the initial planning through installation and inspection. The Brighten team is totally professional and they are highly experienced. They gave us excellent advice on the optimal design for our needs; they were very efficient; they were congenial, friendly, and accommodating in every respect, and they left the worksite in perfect condition. The project was on time and on budget. I give Brighten Solar unreservedly my highest recommendations. If you are looking for a solar installer, you can't do any better than that.

just passed the 1 year mark. $0 for me!

Brighten, Professional, Honest, direct, realistic, flexible enough to meet your requests. Wise enough to keep you "out of the ditch". these folks know what they are doing. May not be the lowest bidder, but will be the lowest cost of ownership over years.

Very happy!

We turned on our new Solar installation yesterday. Thanks to Brighten Solar we got the highest quality equipment and service we could ask for. Jeremy Favier was the first rep to give me an onsite inspection and confirmation of his online bid. He was always prompt and professional every step of the way. The personal attention Brighten Solar gives is outstanding. We are very happy we chose the right Solar company.

Brighten Solar Is Illuminating!

We are in the middle of a significant remodel and always knew that we would go solar on our next house. As a former board member on the Community Environmental Council, I was very familiar with their well received Solarize Santa Barbara program several years ago. Now that it was our turn to make a difference, we hired Brighten Solar to install our 17 panels. Jeremy and Marine Favier have been fantastic to work with. Understanding solar and all of the rebates, systems, pay back times, etc. is not an easy under taking. Many consumers are overwhelmed with the process, but Jeremy and Marine have been very informative, helpful and professional. I can't wait until we are far enough along in our project to install the solar panels (they go on last to make sure they don't get damaged). Give Brighten Solar a call if you are considering solar too!

On time , On budget

Brighten was the installer for the 2d installation I have made. They were far and away more professional and competent than the 1st. Brightens ability to deal with the requirements of the regulatory bodies was especially noteworthy and the permits were obtained smoothly. They were accessible and. responded promptly to all my questions.

Brighten Solar: Smooth process customized to our desires

Marine and Jeremy demonstrated professionalism and polish at each step. We appreciated the way they showed us alternatives from different suppliers, NOT "one size fits all." They planned ahead so the designs were approved by the City and SCE before the equipment arrived. Installation was quick and clean.
