    Reviewed Jun 14, 2020

    Dominic was professional and knowledgeable. Him and his company got the job done quickly. The whole process went smoothly. My solar system is working great! I got several quotes and met with multiple big name companies. The equipment used by Ocotillo and the price was top notch. Dominic is great to work with and I Highly recommend Ocotillo for your solar needs.

  • "Great experience"

    Reviewed Apr 12, 2020

    We were very pleased with the experience provided by Octillo Solar. From start to finish, they were very thorough, knowledgeable and professional. We are very pleased with the decision to go solar and selection of this company. We also apprecaited the work that they do to give back to the community.

  • "Professional"

    Reviewed Mar 03, 2020

    Ocotillo Solar is a knowledgeable and professional organization. I engaged with a handful of local companies and performed due diligence to determine which company would perform my install. Ocotillo demonstrated the experience, knowledge, track record, and capability to do the work. Once engaged, the team was very receptive to responsive to my needs and requirements. I would recommend Ocotillo to anyone looking to install solar.

    Dominic and Ocotillo Solar did a great job installing my solar panels. I received multiple bids through EnergySage, but I chose Ocotillo since they used premium Panasonic panels and a SolarEdge inverter while still being very competitive with their quote. Overall, I'm very happy recommending Ocotillo Solar.

    "Superb service, outstanding business practice, priced right"

    After extensive consideration of the now-several well-respected PV companies, we chose Ocotillo based on neighbor/friend recommendation and could not be happier. They get our highest recommendation. We have had many construction/remodeling/electrician etc projects at our home, and we have never worked with a more well-informed, ethical, transparent, meticulous, and quality-conscious company. They maintain true "ownership" of the project from start-to-finish, including all aspects of permissions, paperwork, on-site meetings with inspectors, etc. Unlike all other companies, you don't meet with a sales rep. You meet with the installer himself, who has tons of experience and can answer any technical question. Their contract is better than most (for example, no forced arbitration clause). They truly go the "extra mile" in everything, including little touches like painting the conduits to blend in with home, if needed.

    The company is relatively small, which means they don't have to pay the salaries of extraneous folks (sales, marketing, etc) or layers of management. So, in addition to having incredible service (truly better than anything you can expect from the construction industry of NM), they also beat every other company in terms of price-per-watt.

    Working with a small company that largely depends on the "boss's" personality always carries some risk, of course. But this is completely overshadowed by a painless experience, highest level of service possible, extreme technical competence, honest and transparent representations, contractual terms that are fair, and all at the lowest price-per-watt. Truly, the best contractor experience we've had as NM homeowners for 38 years.

  • "Great Experience!"

    Reviewed Apr 15, 2018

    Ocotillo installed our solar electric system last month, and we are very pleased with the process and the system. They use high quality components and extend the warrantees. From the initial quote to system installation, Dominic walked us through the process. It has been 3 weeks since the system was installed, and we couldn't be happier.

  • "Intial quote and visit."

    Reviewed Mar 14, 2018

    First quote at or below national average. This was using premium panels. Wattanty extended to 25 on all components. Dominic , was clear on product, warranties, rebates and installation timeline. Provided references. Dealing directly with owner made it easy, plus it is a local company. Will update on completion.

  • "Solar dream fulfilled."

    Reviewed Nov 29, 2017

    From the time I first met with Dominic Westeen, he was thorough in explaining his systems, products, methods, and his experience in the solar industry. He went over the various choices available in modules, inverters, optimizers and such things. Ocotillo Solar was one of the last of about 15 solar contractors that I interviewed. Dominic allowed me through the permission of the property owners to see installations that he had been currently working on. I liked his workmanship, and having worked in the electrical industry for 42 years, I knew what to look for. When I chose to do business with Ocotillo Solar, the process went smoothly and on schedule through the design and permitting. Once the design and permits were done installation began at a rapid pace and in just a few days it was complete! I would highly recommend Ocotillo Solar Electric to anyone seeking a competent solar contractor.

    "Over and Above - Solar Contractor"

    Reviewed Sep 12, 2017

    Dominic of Ocotillo Solar sets himself apart from the rest of the pack because he has expert knowledge (many I interviewed (including the big name outfits) new less about solar than I did) ; has technical installation experience (since Dominic will be doing the work); is personable (since I knew we would be working together closely as a Team); and lastly Dominic is Super-Customer-Driven.....he totally will customize your installation to fit your needs for high quality workmanship, that is pleasing to the eye, at a value that will meet your budget. Bottom Line: Dominic gets it! My recommendation is go ahead and interview others all you want....but interview Dominic last....and you will realize all of the above...for sure. Brian.

    Had off grid install done by this company. Needed install done on cabin. The 6kw install was done at quoted price. The job was also done quickly and was able to get answers to all my questions about care and maintenence. After 2 years the unit has no problems. Great service would use again.
