Customer care is a joke. Ask a lot of questions they will give you the run around worse then any career politicians. I only gave one star because you can't give a negative number.
GRNE was the installer for my 9KW system which I contracted through SunBadger Solar. They did a fantastic job in get my system up and running within a few weeks. They handled my application and permits without any delays. When they noticed an inverter issue, they quickly came back and took care of it. I highly recommend them.
We just had a solar installation that went very smooth. All of our questions were answered promptly along the way. Great job all around!!
We interviewed several companies for our home installation project and GRNE Solar was by far the best for quality versus price. They were not the least expensive but also not the most expensive. However, from start to finish they provided answers to all of our questions (and we had a lot of them!). During the installation they were very careful and handled everything beautifully. I myself am meticulous and professional and GRNE Solar is the same so they were a pleasure to work with. I cannot say enough to recommend this company for your solar projects.
GRNE installed my solar in rural Illinois at a competitive price. They were quick to reply to all my questions. Very professional installers.
When I began to research solar, I wasn't sure what I was getting into. Energy Sage helped give me a basic understanding of what I needed to know to talk with installers and figure out what I wanted and what pricing was within line. GRNE was the most responsive of all installers, best priced once my project was fully flushed out, and highly rated of all of the installers that I looked at. GRNE ended up being the company that worked with me the best and was willing to go the extra mile to earn my business.
I have a 10.18 KW system and 37 panels. Fairly large project for a house and these guys made it seamless.
GRNE Solutions installed a 22 panel 7 kW solar array for me nearly a year ago. I wanted to try a few seasons with the system to give a full review. So far the system has worked flawlessly! The online monitoring tool gives great access to my data and I've seen my primary array consistently achieve near maximum output on clear sunny days. When doing my research for this project, I spoke with close to 10 different companies in the area and GRNE was easily the most cost competitive. Eric was incredibly responsive throughout the project, including after-hours calls to answer my numerous questions and, most importantly, prompt replies. He also did everything in his power to meet my aggressive installation schedule, including following up with the city, HOA, and energy provider. When his primary electrician had to take PTO unexpectedly, he communicated this to me immediately and offered to line up different contractors; during the install they were incredibly polite and diligent and Eric was on-site up on the roof during the entire installation. I've received my first SREC, power output is exceeding expectations, and so far I've not had to pay for energy supply* since the system has gone live!
*Some words of warning about the process (not the company) though for new buyers. There may be some bureaucracy with your energy provider such that applying for permission to install the system is separate from applying for a net metering program. This distinction was not forthcoming until my next energy bill after giving away a month of free energy. Also note, there is no such thing as a $0 energy bill, at least in my experience; I still have to pay a 'customer charge' for my grid tied system even though I've provided a net surplus of energy so far. The energy credits from surplus production are applied to the energy supply costs only. That being said, my energy bills have only cost $16 per month, even during the summer (using energy credits). This was still a very positive experience overall. GRNE was great and I’m currently estimating about a 6-7 year return-on-investment (ROI) after the federal tax rebate!
I sent out a request for proposal to four installers in my area. The very next day GRNE Solar (Eric) was at my house with three proposals that perfectly bracketed my requirements. Eric and his team answered questions and made adjustments as needed to get it just right and now I have a beautiful 4.2kW system on my roof.
I'm very impressed with their ability to deliver so smoothly.
Thanks Eric (GRNE Solar)
I chose GRNE Solar in part because they had quoted the lowest price to install solar on our roof, but also because when I spoke to Eric on the phone he was always patient and exuded a sense of calm that made me trust him for this project without meeting him in person (although I'm sure I could have).
Throughout the process, Eric did a great job communicating by email to take care of all the city permitting and utility setup, sending us documents for virtual signatures when needed.
I spent a lot more time researching solar and then choosing a contractor than actually dealing with anything related to the installation because GRNE Solar took care of everything. I didn't meet Eric until the system was operational, which was great.
GRNE Solar exceeded my expectations in every way. In particular, I was really impressed by just how EASY they made everything.
GRNE were a great company to work with. Eric was very polite & knowledgeable. He answered all my questions about financing and explained the process of work really well. The install took a day and a half. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking to add solar to their home.
I contacted GRNE Solutions for a quote, after I received the quote I had lots of follow up questions. They always responded promptly and I finally decided to go with their installation based on the system capabilities and price. The install went well and am very satisfied with electrical production to date.
Eric and his crew were terrific. They have low rate financing with different options to make it easier on payments. We did have a little confusion on our choice of financing, but approval was simple and painless. Good, competitive rates on our system. They came out as scheduled and worked tirelessly in the bitter cold. No mess was left. They explained the equipment use to me and I love the computer monitoring to see every day how it's all working and how much energy it's making. Customer Service afterwards is great, too. Eric is quick to answer calls or e-mails. It looks nice on my roof, too. My first electricity bill after installation was $3.45 Super happy.
I found the company from their signage at another install and was pleased with both the professionalism and knowledge of the company.
Had an 8.37 kw system installed, 27 panels, roof-mounted. Waiting on the city inspector and the utility was the only downside . . . Everything else went great.
GRNE Solutions installed solar panels on our home. They helped get us signed up to received the Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) payments that are offered in our state, have monitored the savings we're getting via a mobile app, and came to the house to replace a defective part when they discovered (through the app) that the system wasn't working properly. Their service has been great!
GRNE was professional and proficient in all business with my solar panel.
Not only did these guys have the best price, they were extremely smart and up to date in the solar industry. I found the GRNE Solutions team to be knowledgeable on the products and options available. They were very efficient with the whole process and completed my install in only 1 day onsite. Loved working with the GRNE Solutions team.
I interviewed a few different solar companies and it was a no-brainer. GRNE Solutions is awesome. They had the lowest price but still offered great quality products. (I did some research outside of what they told me too) I was newer to the idea of solar and they took the time to walk me through each step of the process. They did EVERYTHING! Ordered my equipment, got the permit from my municipality, coordinated with the utility company on my behalf, and did the install. It was a smooth process. And I'm still convinced they didn't charge me enough. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend GRNE Solutions!
From the initial consultation to turning on the system for the first time, GRNE was on top of it. I can't say thanks to them enough for the extra dollars in my pocket every month. If your looking for a Professional Company with a great product I would highly recommend giving them a call
