Terrible communication

They sent a friendly and very responsive guy in the beginning. It all changes once you sign the contract. I had so much difficulty afterwards: they scheduled the installation date then they would cancel on the same day or the day before without much notice. They did this twice. Also they needed to talk to my roofer and coordinate which isn't that hard of a job. But they would just ignore and not contact my roofer. After the installation, their communication was worst. They told me to contact PEPCO for meter change and PEPCO sent me an email saying the Solar Solution had to finish paper work first. Again very poor communication. There are a few options for solar companies, I strongly recommend staying away from this company. Not sure how they have such good reviews, perhaps they used to be good and now they got busy and don't know how to run it well anymore? In any case, they have very bad communication with customer, among themselves, and with other contractors.

Such an easy process

I can’t believe how easy it was. I signed up in July and got installed in September of 2018. Didn’t have to do a thing except sign the paperwork upfront and installation was in a single day. I can monitor my system online through an app, and since April I have been receiving a negative bill from pepco! I worked with Ernesto.

Eighteen panels up and running

Solar Solution started out with a miscommunication at first, but the company realized the problem, fixed it, and everything went right from there. They had the best price and the installation is on aluminum beams -- no roof penetration or weight -- and we are very happy. We chose the more expensive panels and owning the SRECs. The only reason that the "Responsiveness" gets 4 and not 5 stars was the initial miscommunication -- but JD made it right.

Panels are chugging away...

Since they were installed nearly 2.5 years ago, the system has performed very well. The install was smooth and quick and high quality, the price excellent, and Solar Solution reps were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The panels reliably produce the predicted amount of power. The only initial hiccup was that early on the software program for the system, though top-rated, was not consistently reading all the panels. A software update by the vendor cleared that up, and it has been completely smooth sailing since than. At this point, all I have to do is look at my reduced electric bill and sell my solar renewable energy credits every few months. I am very satisfied.

Pleasure Working With Solar Solution LLC

Initial contact was with a salesperson who was fantastic. Good and clear explanations, and stated that she didn't consider herself a "sales person" because she believes in her product so greatly. We weighed our options within Solar Solution (we had panels installed as a part of a cooperative), and the panels were installed within a few weeks. The workers were very professional. We questioned the decision to put the panels on our north-facing roof, so there was a pause in work and a staff member from the paperwork side of Solar Solution came out again, looked at our situation, and gave clear details as to why the north roof was the preference. Workers came out a few days later to complete the work.

Easy and flexible

I worked with Solar Solutions to purchase panels for my flat row house roof. They were great! I had to delay the installation because my neighbor was having major work done on their house and I didn't want to interfere. Solar Solutions was very willing to wait and in the mean time they had a product upgrade, which they provided to me at no additional cost. Installation was quick and I went up to the roof to see the work and I was impressed with the workmanship and set up. It was an easy and great experience from start to finish.
