  • "Outstanding work!"

    Reviewed Apr 06, 2021

    ESD solar in my opinion has the best crew and quality product over all the rest. A friend of mine referred me and I have zero regrets! This company has zero competition due to the professionalism, open communication, amazing install crew, beyond fair pricing, honesty ( which I appreciate) and the way they even follow up. Hands down the best! If you’re reading reviews wondering which company to choose for your solar energy... I’d say look no further !

  • "Outstanding company and product!!!"

    Reviewed Apr 06, 2021

    Finding the right company that customizes your own personal wants/needs has proven to be difficult, especially during a pandemic... However, when my family came across ESD Solar we felt very secure with our choice and still do. Our family is big on going green so solar energy was the obvious choice, we just didn’t know who to trust. Jeff from ESD educated us beyond belief and was very polite and knowledgeable. We LOVE our low profile design panels and our power bill has decreased significantly. Honestly, couldn’t be any more pleased!

  • "Excellent service!"

    Reviewed Feb 16, 2021

    After meeting with several companies I chose ESD Solar. Jeff stood out as far as his professionalism and was able to answer all my questions and make me feel comfortable. The communication was great throughout the entire process

  • "Hassle free!!!"

    Reviewed Feb 08, 2021

    Hassle free experience start to finish! All permits and paperwork were taken care of by this company leaving us feeling good about our choice. The installers were friendly and professional, leaving zero mess to clean up afterwards. Highly recommend using this company.

    Brendan was great for the initial sales pitch, but that's what he was hired to do. He unknowingly sold solar installs for the WORST company ever. Brendan as well as many other installers were left high and dry as ESD not only screwed over their employees, but their contractors and SO many customers. After waiting for 4 months past initial install date, I am now a year past install and my system still doesn't work, work promised has yet to be performed, and there have been several costs that were not presented before hand. AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE! ESD never called to set up a date for ANY appointments - they just showed up at their convenience. They stopped returning phone calls/messages/emails MONTHS ago. We now have Attorney William Cantrell of Tampa representing MANY of us and are looking for MORE VICTIMS! Please call his office and tell them you'd like to be compensated for the lost time & money that ESD has stolen from you!

    I was in communication with their sales person, who I was told is co-owner. This company caused me to lose time, energy and commitments. They became prejudice to my place of work and chose not to do my install because perhaps I know too much information about the solar industry. Rather than discus this with me they chose to remain silent. Much of all of this I have documented. I can not rate as a consumer of their products, however from customer service and attempting to purchase their product, they are poor. Read your terms carefully as well, if you know enough some things may raise alarms for you.
