This is the future of energy.

  • "5 Star and Then Some"

    Reviewed May 21, 2020

    I got 3 separate bids, like they advise you to do, with V3, PetersenDean and Solarhut. All professional and I have nothing negative to say about any of them. However, V3 is the one that stuck out to me with how thorough they were explaining the process and I didn't feel rushed into making the decision. Ultimately, it came down to what made the most sense financially and the quality of what we were getting longterm. I have been happily installed for a year now and will gladly keep sending my friends and family to this company.

    I also want to praise the sales individuals who assisted one of my close friends. They told her that it did not make sense to get solar in her situation - it would have cost more money no matter how you sliced it for her and out of the 6 companies she spoke with, V3 was the only one to confirm her beliefs. Honesty is a big deal when you're making a large purchase and there is no question that this company values just that.

    Not only did I think this was a scam, I wasn't sold on the whole idea until sat down with Eric Corbridge, one of their managers, and he explained the whole thing to me from beginning to end. I have now had my solar for a couple of months and am very pleased. Be skeptical in all things you hear regarding solar, ask a lot of questions, and make sure it all makes sense. I would refer V3 and Eric as your solar experts. They know what they are doing.

  • "Wonderful Experience"

    Reviewed May 19, 2020

    I just got my true up bill and it was a credit, woo! I went with the PPA option, which I originally thought purchasing was the best way to go.... however, I couldn't benefit from the tax credit, anyway, and oh my is solar expensive! Why would I spend my hard earned money on this when I don't have to. Just pay for what you use, it's cheaper than PG&E, and don't worry about the maintenance of the equipment? Score! Unlike other programs I looked into, there is no lien on the home, either. I suggest you call V3 and see what they can do for you. Stop letting PG&E make you pay them for their mistakes!

  • "Love My Solar"

    Reviewed May 18, 2020

    I am a skeptic so I wasn't on board with the idea of solar at first. Even the rep I first spoke with at first was new and not as well versed in the topic, so that made me a little nervous. However, after meeting with both him and his manager the 2nd time, I knew what option would be best for me and that it was a no brainer. The process took longer than I would have expected, but after researching a bit, it makes sense that it's not just up to V3 to install and turn on - you have to permit, go through city inspection's and even PG&E before you will have your solar all said and done. I am saving money, have consistent payments, and I am even using more power than I was before. I would definitely use this company for your switch to solar.

    "Making a Difference"

    Reviewed May 18, 2020

    There always going to be pros and cons to any company or ways to improve. The reason I have worked for V3 for now two years is because they are always aiming to do better. While no situation is perfect, if you voice a concern, they will help you better understand or find a solution. In a lot of the negative reviews I've read, most of them are inaccurate due to a lack of understanding. It's not easy finding a company that is actually looking out for you and the community as well as themselves. Unfortunately, not every person will be completely honest either - that is just how the world works. However, the core of this company is something to believe in and they truly want to do better for their community and employees. Why not save, choose who you pay for your electricity, AND partner with a company who genuinely cares to help you do so?

  • "Don't do it!!!"

    Reviewed May 08, 2020

    Lower priced for setup than others but absolutely horrible experience and not worth it. We started the process of doing the install last July and it's still not done, 10 months later. Also lied to us and told us we would be up and running when PGE shuts off electric. The pitch was, "PGE will starting rolling blackouts so you better get solar, blah, blah, blah. This is not true. Unless you buy their battery the panels on your roof are useless when your electric provider turns off power. We set up our first appointment for them to come out to our house last July for the sales pitch. They no call, no showed. I literally took 4 hours PTO to be there to meet with them. That should have been an omen for us but we rescheduled and now find ourselves stuck dealing with this terrible company. Sadly, once you sign you're stuck with them forever. Seriously, don't do it. Don't do it! Do solar for sure, just not with this company, in my opinion.

    We're now happy solar and battery backup customers. No more PG&E blackouts for us!!! We were so tired of paying the rate increases and now they turn off our power when it's their fault. Not anymore! Thanks V3!

  • "Great company to work with"

    Can't say enough positives things about this company. They answered all of our questions and made sure we understood everything before signing anything. Been a customer for 5 months and we're already seeing the solar savings benefit. Thank you V3!

    Reviewed Jan 21, 2017

    When my husband and I decided on solar we received three different quotes. Andrew from V3 had the best presentation and price. On fact the price we were quoted from V3 was $17,000 cheaper than the higher one and the system was almost double the size. Very honest to deal with!!

  • "Highly recommend "

    Reviewed Jan 17, 2017

    I was introduced to V3 by my brother. The guy from V3 Electric that came to my house (Andrew) was very helpful and seemed to really know his stuff. He gave me lots of options along with the pros and cons of each option. Overall, I had a very positive experience with them. And I ended up getting a heck of a great deal too. You can't go wrong with these guys. I've already recommended them to my neighbors too.
