  • "Professionalism is Excellent"

    Reviewed Apr 08, 2021

    I have wanted solar for a long time and I am extremely happy to have worked with PlugPV. Excellent customer service! From contracting through the approval process to installation was the smoothest experience I have ever had working with a contractor. The project team was excellent. They performed as stated and the communication was above and beyond expectations. A special thank you to Andrew for making this transaction seamless. I highly recommend working with Andrew Kane at PlugPV if you are looking for a great job and customer experience.

    we have had our solar panels for 3 years now, its absolutely wonderful. we had a great experience from the first meeting with our representative Roger Weisman to the people in the office and to the installers.
    we have no complaints at all and the savings on our electric bill is awesome.

    We had a small problem with the placement of the boxes the panels feed into on the front of our house. We brought it to their attention and immediately they moved them to exactly where we wanted them with no questions asked. They were very accommodating I would highly recommend PlugPV for your solar needs. And on top of all that our salesman was with us from the beginning to the last installation of the final panel. He really helped make the whole process smooth. Thanks Glenn.

    Our job was done in December 2020. PlugPV was by far the best quote we received. Other quotes had, what I felt were mismatched equipment: higher rated panels with individual inverters that could not handle the panel max production. That was not the case with PlugPV. After selecting them, Ben R., the project manager, did a great job keeping us informed on the progress of permits and state applications. He was a pleasure to work with. When we had an issue with one panel (the subcontractors had not connected it properly). PlugPV was very responsive to the issue and resolved it, no hassle, in a timely manner. There are few experiences with home projects, that I can rate as highly as my experience with PlugPV, and I can recommend them without reservation.

    Very happy with my experience through Plug PV. My wife and I were interested in the idea of solar before meeting with a door to door rep, when we made a non-committal appointment to learn more. Ben Potiker was super informative and helped answer all of our questions in just a short information session. The entire process was smooth, and installation took less than a day on our roof. We're excited to get the system turned on and start making our own power. Many thanks to Ben P. and his team!

    Horrible company. Deceptive salesmen tacyic from Brett who disappeared once paperwork was signed.

    Its been more than 6 months and they have changed and taken full payment when the contract was only supposed to be 80% until system is energized.

    Almost 3 months after install andy syshas not produced any power. When I asked about this their suoer Nick told me I should call the electric company myself and do his job.

    The owner Steve doesn't also will not reply to messages.
    Worst company I have ever dealt with in all my years.

    Update to clarify response from plugpv.

    finnaly after multiple attempts contact the salesmen he responds in a review. Not surprisingly they are more concerned about what public sees and their reputation than trying to solve the problem.

    Unfortunately the facts are is plugpv dropped the ball multiple times with permitting and paperwork causing the utility company to be delayed in completing their part of the installation. And the ultimate truth of the matter is that as a consumer I spent hard earned money to manage all aspects of the contract. Inuding making sure the utility company was able to complete the install.

    The facts if the matter is that Plugpv failed to file permits

Jarred and Jeal were both very informative and supportive when I started the process. They both took the time to answer my many questions and walk me through the process. They were very helpful answering my questions about permits and scheduling the installation of the solar panels. The installers were great. Matt, Chuck, and the rest of the guys (sorry I am horrible with names) were great. They were all very friendly and very polite. I have had workman at my house in the past that would swear up a blue streak and leave garbage around. Not the PLUGPV guys. They were a pleasure to have working at my house. They answered all my questions and were just great to be around. Unfortunately, the installation could not be completed the same day due to an issue in my electrical panel. PLUGPV very quickly scheduled a tech to come out 2 days later to finish the installation. Kyle was fantastic. He completed the installation of the solar panels.

    I would highly recommend PLUGPV. It is a great company to work with. The employees are all professional and polite and it is obvious they enjoy their jobs.

  • "Simply the best"

    In my experience, I found the process of vetting PV contractors to be a bit daunting. The differences between one company and the next were often negligible, but I was on a mission to to ensure I only hired a company that would truly have my best interest at heart, and one that would offer nothing short of unparalleled service and workmanship. I'd met Ben Potiker several years ago when my search for solar first began, but the timing for me simply wasn't right. Ben was kind enough to send me a quick message anytime a new product or promotion became available that he thought might interest me, and he did so professionally, without ever coming across like he was pushing for a sale. This year things lined up for me, and Ben just happened to reach out with information about a financing deal with limited availability; the stars had aligned and it the time was finally right. From the very onset of my experience with PlugPV I felt like I was truly receiving top notch service, all of my questions were answered, and my concerns addressed, and always in a timely and professional manner. Once we began the formalities, Wendy was a pleasure to communicate with, and Ben was always quick to respond to any of my needs. I was a demanding customer, and they took my challenges in stride. Installation exceeded my expectations, and now my home has not only increased in value from our investment, but we have the peace of mind knowing we're doing at least a little part to reduce our family's footprint on this earth. It took us a while to reach this point, but ultimately, I couldn't be happier with the experience we've had with PlugPV, and I can't recommend them enough. I'm happy to say that I already have friends working with Ben who are equally impressed, and looking forward to the completion of their own PV systems. You simply cannot go wrong with PlugPV.

    We began talking with Plug PV's National Sales Director, Jeal Sutherland in March, 2020. It was evident from the outset that Jeal had considerable experience in the residential solar industry and that he had great command of the details. His presentation was clear and compelling.

    At the time we signed on with Plug PV, New York State was under Cover-19 shutdown. Jeal and Nick Clingerman kept in touch with us providing reassurance and scheduling information. The morning that NY State opened up for solar installations, Plug PV had a crew of 5 at our house plus 2 electricians. The installation of 22 panels was completed in about 5 hours. The crew was courteous and focused on customer satisfaction.

    Post installation, Nick Clingerman took over management of myriad administrative hurdles: communications with National Grid; coordinating electrical and building inspections; walking us through the incentive and rebate paperwork; and thoroughly explaining the monitoring functionality of the Solar Edge website. Plug PV was patient and professional throughout.

    Plug PV provided a seamless turnkey experience. Thanks to all, especially Nick!

I felt extremely comfortable with Jeal Sutherland and my trust doesn't come easily. He told me he would be there every step of the way and I could call him day or night and trust me I did.
