    "Listened and provided the solution I wanted."

    Reviewed Jun 24, 2020

    Going into this process I knew what I wanted and why I wanted it. Gardner’s solution exceeded my expectation. Hence a 5-star review. What Gardner did well was: They listened, explained and then executed on a plan I am very happy with. My solar story that I hope you find helpful. I knew what I wanted, because I have been looking into solar seriously for eight-years. I researched and wrote down what I wanted. This is a long list, so I will sum it up: Price, Quality with warranty and it had to be cool. Cool to me was not about saving the planet or my wallet. It was about self-reliance. This self-reliance meant battery. Again, it would be a much longer review if we get into technology and why(s). I mention this because this is where Gardner distance themselves from another good company. Really it came down to listening and providing the customer with what they want. In a nutshell the battery solution adds a lot of cost and is hard to justify. By listening they gave me an alternative that was a cool self-reliant solution, which ultimately won them the bid—that will be my FYI to this review. My process: I talked to six solar companies and had four bids. I broke-it-down to two great companies with great reputations. Yes, I did my research. After I selected Gardner, Gardner was careful to include my concerns in the contract. The installation went smooth. The Electrician was personable and knowledgeable in answering questions. The completed product is awesome. I would like to give all the geek info, but this is a review. On that note the Solar Edge solution Gardner provided also deserves a 5-star review.

    FYI on why this is a cool self-reliant solution: If you don’t know about batteries and off-grid this may not make sense. Anyhow, I did not go with a battery. Financially it did not make sense, but what I have is a solar-edge inverter with EV charging. The EV charging is solar direct to the car. In other words, the solar to my car is not dependent on the utility grid. I own a Chevy Volt that I can plugin to a 1500-watt DC to AC inverter to power household items. In other words: My transportation is solar and some household electrical can be done off grid—very cool! BTW there is more on why this inverter is really cool.

    Gardner Energy installed 12 panels on our house a few years ago. We were so pleased with their work that we hired them again this past year to add an additional 30 panels. Once again we found Gardner to be competitive in its bid, accessible and clear in their communications with us, honest about the timeline, and professional in their workmanship. The panels look great and the system works well.
    We definitely recommend Gardner Energy to anyone who is interested in installing a solar panel system.

  • "Solar Installation"

    Reviewed Mar 29, 2020

    I am writing a quick review of Gardner Energy. From the start to the finish of installation Casey Winger with Gardner Energy helped make the process easy, clear, and cost-effective for me and my family. From trying to sift through several quotes from several vendors Casey was there to answer questions and help me make good decisions. He even helped my son-in-law get out of a poor contract with another company.

    The installation team was great, fast, and conscientious in getting it the system installed within a couple of days. I waited a few weeks to have the power company come out and get me switched over but finally, it was all worked out.

    I have been very satisfied with the installation, quality, and price of the system. Thank you very much!

    Casey Winger at Gardner Energy is great. I approached and received quotes from about 10 different solar sales and install companies. Casey talked with us about every aspect of getting solar installed and beat the prices on most competitors. I had alot of questions throughout the process and Casey went above and beyond to find good answers.

    I probably drove these guys nuts with all my questions - I really like to research and know about what I'm getting into, especially for such a big investment. They were really patient, super responsive, and happy to help answer about all the details and they were one of the least expensive options out there for us.

  • "Quick best price"

    Reviewed Mar 22, 2020

    Casey was always in contact and the elimination of power bill has been a life saver during these tough times. The best price was offered and the whole process was timely as promised

  • "Energy Savings Exceed My Expectations"

    Reviewed Mar 22, 2020


    When I first considered switching to solar, I had a bit of skepticism and a long list of questions. But after a company representative came to my home and leisurely answered all my questions and showed me data on how use of solar helped fight climate change, I was excited and signed up for late summer installation of panels on the back side of my roof. I was awed at the staff''s thorough exploration and picture-taking inside my roof, and their precise installation of the panels. Monthly savings has exceeded my expectations, and it's satisfying to know that I'm taking part in minimizing crises from climate change. I hope I can influence neighbors and friends to switch to solar. The solar savings on my quarterly income tax enabled me to skip the Fall tax payment!

    "Optimum solar panel installation"

    Reviewed Mar 22, 2020

    The design for our solar panels made maximum use of the southern part of our roof--even making an adjustment of panel size/manufacturer to ensure best placement. The panels have worked as advertised without attention from ourselves. When we requested an extension to our contract to have Gardner string a 220 volt connection across the crawl space and into our garage for future use with a hybrid or electric car, they gladly did so at a fair price. Their word was always honored.

  • "Highly recommend"

    Reviewed Mar 20, 2020

    Good folks. Represented things honestly. Very knowledgeable. They worked hard around weather and employee illness to get our system installed before new net metering deadline. The sales rep even worked on the roof to get things done. First-rate, professional company. I recommend.

  • "Great to work with"

    Reviewed Mar 20, 2019

    They pulled permits, contacted Rocky Mountain Power on my behalf, setup the online portal and installed great equipment. Financing was a breeze through Gardner Energy. Start to finish took about 30-45 days.
