    "Highly Recommended. Great experience."

    Reviewed Jan 15, 2021

    Advantage: LOCAL in OC. Recommended by word of mouth. My friends were very happy with them. Certified Panasonic installer.
    Sales consultant - Jeremey was great. OC Solar is extremely efficient in communicating with you - available to answer all questions by phone/text/email. Instead of relying on phone or virtual appts, the property is evaluated using satellite resources + history of electrical bills and quote is provided immediately. No unnecessary sales pitch, right to the point.
    Execution of work: I did not get a weekly update as explained in the beginning. However, my job was on a smaller scale and the contract began in Dec 2020 during COVID pandemic. Replies to my inquiries were prompt. Had issues with the existing type of roof tiles that required added roofing work. Again, handled well between Ashton (proj manager) & Jeremey. All the workers were professional and courteous.
    Result: Panels look great. My options were Panasonic vs LG panels. OC Solar certainly helped me with my decision making. My friends were happy with their post-installation service.

    Make sure you call Orange County Solar. Jeremy, Vince, Ashton, Carlos and the entire team at Orange County Solar have absolutely provided us a first-class experience. They are the finest solar solution available with the top of the line technology at competitive pricing. Everyone is so knowledgeable. They are the perfect home improvement partner completing everything from clear proposals to building permits and city inspection. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

    Everyone is extremely professional. Jeremy is always on site helping other homeowners and businesses but always had time to meet our expectations. He listened to what we wanted and then showed us what and how it works and then he did exactly what he said.

    When we first started researching solar we spoke with four different companies. Two of the four were trying to sell us what was important to them. Not Jeremy. He listened to our wants, needs and desires and put together the right number of panels to help us turn solar into electric and give us control of our electric power instead of the other way around. It was a hard to decide between our two finalists but we selected the right team based on references, pricing, technology, responsiveness and warranty, which is the best in the industry. We will save over $3600 per year and the system will pay for itself in 3 1/2 years. We will make money sending our power to the grid every year going forward.

    Request Carlos's installation team. They were clean, efficient, courteous, professional and not only did fantastic work they were extremely knowledgeable, explaining everything I wanted to know at each phase of the installation and completed everything in a day and a half. Ask them about how they take care of your roof by using S hooks instead of drilling through your roof.

    At the conclusion of the project I elected to get more details about how billing works, production vs consumption, time of day, etc. Ashton's customer service team earned our trust and walked us through the somewhat confusing electric company processes and even handled all the electric company communication and documentation.

    We have already confidently referred two friends and neighbors knowing that our family name brand is secure with a partner like OC Solar. If you're smart you'll call this team first.

    I had a great experience with OC Solar from beginning to end!

    Jeremy, the Sales Manager, was great. He was able to put together a very competitive quote upfront, and was able to answer all my questions regarding going solar. Going through the research and process of getting solar quotes can be very stressful and confusing, but Jeremy was able to answer my questions thoroughly and he was able to provide his honest opinions regarding my solar system. I ended up going with a 6kW system with Panasonic HIT panels and Enphase IQ7+ microinverters.

    After the contract was signed, things moved very quickly and efficiently. Ashton, the project manager, always kept me updated regarding the timeline and when we would hit certain milestones of the project. In addition, the solar installation needed to be done concurrently with my roofing project. This added some logistical challenges, but Ashton was great and was able to accommodate and effectively coordinate his crew to work alongside the roofers.

    My system looks great and I know that I'll be in good hands for future support since OC Solar are an authorized Panasonic Solar installer, which means you get the extended 25 year warranty as well!

    Overall, I highly recommend OC Solar!

    Orange County Solar was simply amazing!

    I had met and spoken to several solar companies such as, Sun Run, Solarmax, Tesla and others. I wanted to gather and research as much information I can before going forward. I made sure to vet each company and do my due diligence to see who I can trust and feel comfortable doing business with. After speaking with several companies, I was just overwhelmed with all this information I gathered. Some of you have experienced this and if your just getting started stop researching now and call Orange County Solar and ask for Jeremy!

    Jeremy was very professional, I spoke to Jeremy for hours and hours, text after text (sorry Jeremy). He answered every question I had. At this point I knew he could be trusted. Ashton (operations manager) is also very professional he kept me up to date and made sure everything went smoothly.

    Vince, Jeremy, Ashton, Carlos, Jose, and the rest of the crew. I just want to say thank you and I appreciate everything that you have done for being professional, quick and making this entire process so easy! Especially during this time because of covid-19, I couldn't be any happier and satisfied!

    Give Orange County Solar a call, you won't regret it!

    Orange County Solar has been stellar from beginning to end. Vincent was able to put together a customized solution that exceeded all of our expectations at a very competitive price point making it a no-brainer. The tax credits made it that much more appealing. We just activated our solar system and we couldn't be happier with the results.

    Why OC Solar was the choice for us? For starters they truly believe in QUALITY! The best products, backed by the best warranties in the industry, by the best installers. We have gone through the entire process working with Ashton and Vincent. We are so pleased with the attention to detail throughout. Their warranty is straight forward, products are backed for 25 years along with the installation. Simple! When talking with their installers, they also reaffirmed that OC Solar wants them to do quality work and not just rush through the jobs.

    Our solar solution included SolarEdge HD-Wave grid tied award winning inverter with integrated car charger. It is compact, efficient and so cool as far as inverters go!

    As part of the project we also asked OC Solar to build a pergola in our backyard and mount the solar panels on top tilted to the south allowing us maximum energy production. The team designed and installed a G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S pergola that's also very functional, for us to enjoy for many years to come.

    Now that it is all set up, all we can say is WOW and THANK YOU to the amazing team at OC Solar!

    After receiving an increasing energy bill every month we decided it was time to research solar. I called 5-7 solar companies for quotes and to educate myself on how a solar installation will benefit us. We eventually decided to go with Orange County Solar. From my first call, the customer service and attentiveness was above and beyond. The owner Vincent answered the phone and patiently answered all my questions. I set up an appointment for an in home consultation. Jeremy arrived on time, was polite and professional. He explained how the process with their company works, all of our options with different brands of panels and the financing options. We felt he was genuine and he did not pressure us into a sale. After he left, I continued my research with other companies. We came back full circle to OC Solar. We purchased a 12.21 kw system, 37 Panasonic HIT panels and SolarEdge inverter. Here are the facts: - No other company could beat OC Solar's price. They were direct and to the point. Other companies started high then would drop their price when they see they are losing the sale. That made me realize I could not trust them and they were willing to take advantage of customers that don't know better. One company came close but then added THOUSANDS of dollars to the price and called it a financing fee which was in addition to the interest rate for the duration of the loan. So that was something else for us to look out for. - OC Solar delivered on everything they promised. The financing was smooth and easy, the installation was efficient and timely. From the date we notified Jeremy we chose them to the date we were up and running was only 3 weeks. No hidden expenses popped up. - The installation team, Jose and Carlos, were clean and respectful. They made it clear they wanted to make the customer happy. It took 3 1/2 days for them to complete the install. For a system of our size (37 panels) that is an excellent time frame. The layout and placement of the panels look great. - From Vincent (owner) to Jeremey (sales rep), Ashton (project manager) and Jose and Carlos (installers) this major project was smooth and painless. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Ashton answered every call during the process and didn't make us feel like we were bothering him. This team did not skip a beat! Thank you OC Solar for your honesty, reliability and for your 5 star customer service. So long Edison!!!

    These guys are awesome! Just got my solar system installed by them and I am very happy with the overall outcome. The whole process took about 2 months from start to finish since my roof is rather complicated to deal with. These guys took care of all the details dealing with my HOA, the city and Edison company. These guys did a great job getting the system up and running without much issues whereas even Tesla declined the job. They are very courteous and professional. Answered all my questions and concerns quickly via email or phone. They keep you updated at least weekly of their progress along the way. You don't even have to be home most of the time when they are there. The thing I like is that they do not ask for any money upfront until the job is done unlike some other installers out there. I highly recommend these guys for your solar needs.

    "Stress Free Solar Installation"

    Reviewed Mar 28, 2018

    I interviewed over 12 different solar companies - Vincent stood out from the rest because he didn't try to sell me on how crappy other companies are but instead he made me felt very comfortable on what his team can do for my solar needs. Other companies spent 80% of the time bickering about their competitors, which is a total turn off! They were quiet, respectful, treated my roof/house like their own (they didn't bang their ladder against my wall/roof for their installation). The connection from one side of the roof to the other is extremely neat. Aside from stress-free solar installation - I want to thank OC Solar for staying competitive on prices, which was an important factor for me to decide.

  • "OC Solar - Excellent"

    Reviewed Mar 17, 2018

    Vince and his crew were excellent from start to finish on our 5.5Kw solar installation in San Clemente, CA. Looks like we are never going to pay a utility bill again, and since installation we bought an electric car to boot!

    I picked OC Solar because of Vincent's (Vinnie when you become friends) great responsiveness and competitive pricing through the quote process. For quotes we chose a large national firm, a small local firm, and consider OC Solar as an Orange County regional size. Hands down Vince responded to us more quickly, acted more professionally, and quoted competitively to earn our business. OC Solar also completed installation in less than 3 weeks.

    We were very concerned about financing, and he connected us with San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union which offers a 12 year loan package secured by the solar installation. Vince's electrician also came back a week after completion to install a 220 dryer plug for a new electric car charger.

    Now we are happily monitoring our solar production on the SolarEdge microinverter and inverter technology, and we are very happy. I highly reccomend OC Solar to anyone wanting to install and own their solar system!

    Vince completed my solar panel and re-roof job with Scott at OC Roofing last week and I am now up and running as a power generating station with SDGE! Vince's honest and thorough approach helped me really analyze all system, roof and financing options. His knowledge of the solar industry and products, paired with his integrity is second to none. The installation team was also very professional and friendly. Throughout the process, Vince provided me real time pictures of the installation and answered all of my questions. Looking forward to referring Orange County Solar to my clients, family and friends. Thanks for everything Vince!
