"Blue Raven Installation Process and System Review"
Reviewed Oct 08, 2019

The design and installation process by Blue Raven was seamless and painless. Blue Raven managed all of the details including scheduling and completing any and all permits. The final report was very detailed as well.

We have had the installation just over one year and the system performs as stated. For us, the decision for installing solar was not really based on ROI but rather based on: (1) whether the installation cost was less than, or closely equal to, our current power bill - which it is; (2) backup in case of a grid shut down; and (3) re-sale value of the home where the power bill would only be ~$5 per month (power company net meter) for any buyer.
Note: system costs and basis for decision may vary from any potential customer to customer.

Over the past year, there have been no issues with the reliability / quality with the system. Enphase (Enlighten) app is easy to use and clearly tracks daily/monthly/yearly output.

"The Best"
Reviewed Sep 15, 2019

Will showed up at my door one day with information on Solar Panels, after many companies telling me I couldn't get Solar without removing my big trees. I am very happy that I gave them the time of day. Will stayed ontop of everything along the way to completion. Before I was even a customer they had done their due diligence and determined that I was a good candidate for solar. After talking with their rep I scheduled a follow up with their salesperson.

After we determined to purchase the solar panels Blue Raven pretty much took care of everything in a very expedient manner. They sent someone over to photograph the roof and developed a design. They submitted for permits quickly and scheduled construction soon after the permits were issued. It took their crew about a day to install the panels and do the electrical work. As an added bonus they gave us a free EcoBee smart thermostat as well as a bunch of LED lights. There was an issue when they installed the thermostat and Blue Raven promptly scheduled a HVAC technician to come over and fix the issue.

From the beginning consult to the final install it has been an absolute fabulous experience. This has been one of the best decisions I have made in a very long time.

"The rest of the company needs to step up to the level of their installer"
Reviewed Sep 15, 2019

The company in general has very poor communication. Once they get you to sign the contract that if you cancel you have to pay a penalty their customer service stops. They rely on you paying a penalty versus making sure the customer is satisfied. I expressed concerns to the service writer who said she told the manager. I was never contacted by the manager to resolve my dissatisfaction. The area service supervisor called and told me he was going to set an inspection appointment and never did. Lot of empty promises coming out of the office of this company. The installer Scott is the only person that I met from blue Raven who consistently showed up when he said he would and explained every step of the process and made sure that I was well informed. I would not recommend blue Raven to any of my neighbors.

I was very impressed with the young men installing my panels. They worked very hard all day in the heat. I would have given a 5 star review except for the cleanup. They did a decent job, but there was still quite a bit of very small bits of debris which I had to pick up around the yard. Also, in my laundry room where they cut the drywall, a mess was left on the floor.

My experience with Blue Raven Solar has been absolutely fantastic! They contacted me directly via solicitation to our house and I am very happy that I gave them the time of day. Before I was even a customer they had done their due diligence and determined that I was a good candidate for solar. After talking with their rep I scheduled a follow up with their salesperson. Parker was very knowledgeable and professional. He helped us determine that for about $10 more a month than we are paying for our power we could purchase solar panels.

"Completely disorganized"
Reviewed Sep 10, 2019

Sales pitch was great, panel installation seemed to go smoothly, but 5 weeks later Blue Raven hasn't passed inspection and every time I check in I get a different story. They have no idea what is going on. Even getting the inspection was pulling teeth, they originally tried to schedule it 6 weeks after installation. Had to call and be the bad guy, then magically its 2 weeks. They advertise 1 week for that.
"Our engineer quit so we have to train another one." Very confidence-inspiring. Maybe in another month or 2 I'll be able to see if the system actually works.
Sales pitch hyped up "no contractors, all Blue Raven employees so it's organized and coordinated". Not seeing the difference.
I wish I had gone with any other company. If you want the process to drag on indefinitely, these are your guys.

"DON'T CHOOSE BLUE RAVEN"
Reviewed Aug 28, 2019

So far the only good thing about Blue Raven is the installers were very nice. Horrible customer service and non existent communication with any of the process or to schedule the next step unless I, the customer call them and ask what's next. For as much money as they get from each customer I expected a business that knew how to run properly. Ont of all that it was 10 days of me calling to ask when I can turn on my system after the electrician finished. Never got any call back when I was promised they'd look into to just to be told I could've switched it on 10 days prior and they finally sent instructions. Ok fine once again frustrated but ok finally. Well no I called right back when they website said it didn't recognize me to have a system. Was told on a Friday i would get a call first thing Monday. Surprise, NO CALL. Here we are Wednesday and 15 days now of days my system should've been working. Well finally someone figured out the account was mixed with someone else in the area. Apparently names and pictures and serial numbes were all duplicates on two accounts. Are you kidding me??? I wasn't given any answers as to where all the energy we've accumulated will go since it's being mixed with a whole other system. Absolutely worst experience and if the panels were already installed I would walk away. Don't CHOOSE BLUE RAVEN if you expect anything to be done right. Would give 0 stars if I could.

They were very easy to work with as I'm in and out of town regularly for work. They handled my HOA request, city permits, blueprints, financing and inspections. I didn't have to shi anything except be present for installation and inspections. They have high quality equipment and they're very efficient, clean and friendly people. All of them were amazing!

"NOT HAPPY!"
Reviewed Aug 22, 2019

We had blue raven install solar at our previous home but we sold it before we could get any of the solar benefits. So when we purchased our new home we decided to use blue raven. Well we have had several issues with blue raven. First was the fact that we bought a larger home and they only wanted to put 14 panels on it, when the home we sold was small @ less than 1300sq. ft. and they installed 17 panels on it. So I told them this fact and they said their study of homes in this area did not require as many. I had to argue with them because our new home is 1900sq.ft. plus a 1000sq.ft. unfinished basement. So they finally installed a couple more panels. Second I told them in the beginning that I did not want an Xcel bill. I wanted our solar system to fully cover all our electrical needs, and that would make having solar beneficial to me, in my mind. Well we still receive a monthly bill from Xcel and it can be as high as $75 in peak summer depending on what and how we use items in our home. Third I asked for a critter guard to keep critters from nesting in, under or around our system panels. I was told they only install them if they are needed in the future. I guess preventative care is of no use to anyone anymore. So again I/we had to fight and argue to get the critter guard which they tried to charge us almost $300 for. After many calls and conversations it was installed at no cost to us, so far. It has been a year now and we are suppose to receive a phone call to discuses how we fell about the system and if we have any concerns or needs. Well I have not received that call yet, just this review. So I am not happy at all and this problem needs must be addressed.

Truly Unhappy!

"Striving to become A-rated company"
Reviewed Aug 11, 2019

Reducing our carbon footprint is important to my family. As a result, solar panels have been on our radar for some time. When a sale representative of Blue Raven Solar (Chris Castaldi) approached us, we welcomed the opportunity.

Pre-sale Experience: Chris was genuinely helpful throughout the pre-sale phase of the project by finding answers to all our questions and navigating our project through their company’s screening phase. By the time we signed the contract, we were pleased with the sale experience and excited about our solar panels system project.

Installation Experience: At the beginning, we had a rocky installation process, giving us the impression that the company got too many projects to deal with. For example, the crew didn’t have the right plan for installation; they didn’t know the next day they would be taken to another installation project; there was delay in delivery; their shared electrician was joggling multiple installation projects and therefore was not able to come to the site till early in the evening. The complaint I made to Blue Raven the next day changed the situation quickly. The next day, a Blue Raven foreman (Henry Mull) came to our house. His presence and his sincere attitude truly made a difference in the quality of the installation. For example, Henry found a way to draw a wire line from the roof to the electrical panels via the attic and not through the house exterior. The crew were experienced and very courteous and considerate. They did a great job installing all the components of the solar panel system. The installed panels look not only beautiful but also very discreet on our roof. Similarly, the second electrician (Jordan) did a beautiful and professional job in connecting the wires to the panels and testing the system. Wiring through the attic required cutting through drywall. The company hired a subcontractor, Dan Gray from “Specialized Construction Services” to patch the 2x3 ft hole in the drywall. As scheduled, Dan showed up on time and did a fantastic job repairing the drywall. The repaired ceiling is now indistinguishable from the rest of the drywall.

Overall Experience: Overall, I am pleased with this company, striving to maintain a high-quality installation with a high-quality customer care. This is an admirable business practice and I do not hesitate to recommend this company to others. In summary, we are very excited about our new solar panel system and cannot wait to start reducing our carbon footprint soon.

Mostly though I appreciate doing a little bit to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel consumption. Solar works well here in Southeast Idaho. Go Solar!! Go Blue Raven! Great service and interactions by customer support.

Our solar panels endeavor was a good choice for us. Our panels don’t get lots of sun in the winter, but that is because the sun isn’t direct during those months. That being said, our power bill has not exceeded $70, which is significantly lower than it ever was before going solar. Installation was very easy (from he homeowner perspective), and everyone explained everything we needed to know very well along the way.

I have been wanting to go solar for years and when I saw an ad in Instagram about the rebates expiring soon I completed a generic survey that got me in contact with Blue Raven Solar. They arranged a sales rep to come out to the house within a few days. After reviewing our power usage and what our property could support they gave us proposal that looked good to us. They had an inspector for the roof out 2 days later to finalize the preprocess. Within 10 days all the permits were taken care of, all of which they handled. Then the installation crew was scheduled for the next week and today they came and had it all installed within 3 hours. (We have a smaller system). The whole process was clear and the timeline was well explained. All of the people from the salesperson, customer service and schedulers as well as the actual contractors who installed it were professional, courteous and did a great job.

"Good job overall, happy with outcome so far, waiting for winter again to see how electric bill is"
Reviewed Jul 23, 2019

Blue Raven did a pretty good job overall. There were a few hiccups, and I ended up stressed out a few times. But nothing major and things were resolved quickly. I got an 18-month deal where Blue Raven pays my solar loan for me. And I got the full tax rebate (using this term loosely) when I filed after getting the solar panels because I was already getting money back this year. (You get the "rebate" back in a tax refund check as long as you do not owe the IRS anything when filing). My Xcel bills have been low (not gone though) this spring and summer. But we just went through a super hot spell with my AC running a lot, so we'll see how that turns out on my next Xcel bill or two. I will have to start paying my own solar loan in 6 months too, so we'll see how things are stacking up then. Hopefully by then I will generate enough solar power to pay just the solar loan and not have much if any electricity to pay for. I will have natural gas though here in Colorado for the winter, which I'll have to keep paying to Xcel. Bottom line, I would recommend Blue Raven if you're looking for solar. They did a good job, and it will add value to your house too.

Reviewed Jul 23, 2019

We’d recently had our home built from the ground up and were first time owners looking for ways to be more cost-efficient. Blue Raven Solar came around, educated us on renting electricity and what we’re currently paying to rent versus what we could be saving to own our energy, it was a no-brainer to go solar. From the moment we decided to move forward, to installation, the Blue Raven team was transparent, professional and answered every question we (I had most of the questions) and they were very patient with us as we went back and forth between the different designs and options. Matt, our sales guy was so incredibly helpful and even conference called operations for us when we needed something expedited or had additional questions he couldn’t answer.

We’ve had our solar system for a year now and couldn’t be happier. Matt and team accurately forecasted the energy we’d use and the number of solar panels needed to offset, and has been spot on. During the winter months we still had an energy bill from excel, but that’s expected.

So far, I’ve recommended Blue Raven solar to several of my friends and family, because of the experience I had with Blue Raven, these guys are not salespeople, they really just want you to make an informed decision and truly care about your best interest.

The solar experience has not be as pleasant as I expected. The actual installation guys were great. The were fast and efficient. The office coordination however was lacking. The installers told me they would be back the next day. They did not show up and explained that the office assigned them to another job and were supposed to notify me. They didn't.

There were problems with the reporting system. At first, no production was reported. Then it was showing 32 microconverters instead of the 16 is should have been. The enphase system they use to monitor production was supposed to be real time. It is not. It only updates every 6 to 8 hours. I was told I could monitor each individual microconverter. Haven't figured out how yet.

I spoke to Enphase about discrepancies in reported production. That has still not be straightened out. I have no confidence in the reported production figures.

Now add Loan Pal - the partner that does the financing part. I was told there was no prepayment penalty. However, they will not allow you to make a principal only payment. They take interest charges out of every payment you make.

At this point, I don't know if the system is producing as it is supposed to or not. I'm assuming over time some of these issues will be settled and hopefully I will be able to have some confidence in how things are operating.

Hi there!

Thanks so much for your review! We're so glad that you're making the sun work for you.

As for your question about excess power, each utility works differently. Idaho power explains their process like this:

"If electricity generated by the Customer and delivered to the Company during the Billing Period exceeds the electricity supplied by the Company during the Billing Period, the Excess Net Energy shall be carried forward as a kWh credit to offset energy usage in a subsequent Billing Period."

This means that they are banking it for you. It's kind of like hibernation. It's saving those credits for a rainy day! When you stop producing enough to cover your usage, Idaho Power will pull from your credits instead of charging you.

Follow up with them if you have trouble seeing this on your bill. It can be pretty confusing.

The Blue Raven salespersons were very helpful and informative during the setup process. Installation was efficient and less than a day for 20 panels on a two story roof. After install you get a bunch of digital documents outlining the whole process with pictures and a packet of documents for tax purposes, which is very convenient. My system has been producing really well now that summer is in full swing and Blue Raven has lived up to all their promises so far. I had to call customer service once after a major snowfall to confirm error codes were from the panel being covered with snow and they were very helpful and responsive. The mobile application to track energy production is a really neat feature too. The Eccobee thermostat that came with the system has worked great too. The best feature is being able to control it remotely from an app on my phone.

Only hangup I can think of: I have a Denver address but live in Adams county. I think Blue Raven assumed Denver county and there was a mix up with whether or not an electrician had to be present for the utility company inspection. This delayed my install a little over a week.

I had my system installed last year during the winter months. Naturally the first few months were the worst and didn't provide much benefit. However now that I've been running this through the summer months I'm impressed by the output of the solar system. Not sure if I can generate enough power to offset the winter months but even if I have an overall return of 80% of the power I actually need, this will be a nice benefit in the years to come. The installation was a bit stretched (took a good 3 months) but there are many moving parts before the system is up and running. I would give it a 4.5 star rating as we hit a few snags during the installation that could have been avoided but Blue Raven took care of all my needs once I pointed them out.

Going solar was in line with my beliefs and goals. I chose this company because of the reasonable financing, the professionalism of the team, and their experience in this business. I like how they seem to treat and follow up with their customers if there are any questions, and the employees seem to enjoy working here, which is also important to me.
With Boise growing, rates at Idaho Power are going to be increasing. I am producing for myself and have a product that increases the value of my home as well. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to go solar.

Everthing has been running smoothly especially after hearing about WA State rebate will be available. Had problem with one meter not running correctly. Last week PUD showed up to look at our meter and found it was showing error messages and not recording. Now they pay us for energy we generate!

I’m a very happy user of the blue raven solar system. They were very professional with the instal and always kept me up to date on everything. I would really recommend them to anyone thinking of getting a solar system installed. It’s been working great so far, since I’ve had it installed about six months ago now. It’s a very easy process and a great system and I love it!

Reviewed Jul 08, 2019

We got quotes from 3 different companies, and Blue Raven was the one we were most comfortable with. Installation didn't go as smoothly as we'd hoped, but that had to do with the surprises our older home presented, rather than problems with Blue Raven. It took longer, but they worked it out. Since then it runs as smooth as can be. We had it installed in December, and I pulled snow off the panels a lot during the winter. Other than that, it is just there, collecting solar energy and lowering out power bill. Output is just as expected.

I'll keep this simple because it doesn't take a lot of explanation. My bill went from $150+ a month to $16. I produce a surplus of about 300 KWh per month which is applied on later bills. House gets extra later of insulation from direct sunlight. There is literally no downside to this whatsoever.

"DO NOT TRUST THESE LIARS!!!"
Reviewed Apr 12, 2019

we asked their lying sales rep face to face about the removal cost if roof repairs need to made such that the solar panels need to be removed to effect repairs, and were told repeatedly there WAS NO COST for this removal.

2 years down the line, guess what? THEY TOLD US A $4,000 LIE!!! so feel free to jump into bed with these CROOKS if you have $4k to THROW AWAY, but don't assume this is the only LIE they will tell you...

also, for the record, when confronted they don't care about their DISHONESTY, which means the company CONDONES IT and WILL DO NOTHING TO CORRECT IT.

if you still want a piece of their bad karma, sorry, but don't say you weren't warned!

"Watch your credit!"
Reviewed Apr 04, 2019

The rep and a trainee attended my home to present a proposal for solar panels, firstly, the solar industry is young and unregulated, so be very careful who you choose. The pushy rep from BlueRaven offered what appeared to be a decent deal but needed to know if I could be financed through LoanPal, their financiers, he asked me some normal questions, but at NO time if he could run a hard pull on my credit, no verbal request, no written request, nothing, he simply picked up his phone and spoke to someone on the other end. It was only after they had left that I realized that they had authorized LoanPal to perform a hard pull on my credit. This is against the law and my attorneys are pursuing it. As for LoanPal, they are working to have the pull removed from my credit reports so they have been helpful.

Well first off it took 7 months for them to turn it on, normally it should take 3 or 4 months, and the sales man never mention a connection fee from duke power. All he said was you will only get 1 bill , pretty much a bill swap, he average my utility bill for the year and said that's what you be paying , ok cool well that's a no brainer sure I will do it, well didn't know the connection fee would be almost $20 a month, so right off the bat your going to be paying $20 more a month than if you never got solar, and then they didn't install enough solar panels because they didn't calculate it right, and they say it was the sales man and my fault cause it wasn't calculated right because I didn't tell them I had a programmable thermostat , really how did I know that, they gave us a programmable thermostat when panels was installed and the installers were like ,oh you already have one, well I will leave it with anyway, i have been getting utility bills around $70 a month. It just been a headache, I talk to one of the head people and they said we can put more panels on to off set the cost but you will have to pay for it, umm no I am not, they pretty much said oh well, so pretty much I have been praying for a sunny month , cause if it been cloudy well your going to pay for it, plus don't add anything to your house like a hot tub, more people living with you, another building with a shed or anything that have to do with electricity, cause if I knew right from the start there was a connection fee I would say no, I was trying to save money now I am losing a lot, all I want is to have the right size panels on my roof that's suppose to be there that they messed up on

"Proposal "Outlier""
Reviewed Sep 08, 2018

I really enjoyed the presentation of the BR proposal, the first in our shopping; however, I just could not understand if we used 8404kwh in a rolling 12 months, why the BR proposal was for much less production (I've since forgotten the stats). I'm thinking the proposed production was at 80% of actual. I called their TX office and if memory serves, there was succeeding missed communications following and I don't think I ever received an explanation before moving on to other vendors. The BR proposal was the lowest we received, a real outlier, "low ball" proposal judging from succeeding proposals from other vendors. I talked with a neighbor re his BR system and was surprised that he had virtually no clue just responding "its OK", they were efficient, did a nice install, but he wasn't prepared to speak to whether they had $6 Xcel electric bills.

"Dishonest Company!"
Reviewed Aug 21, 2018

**** AVOID BLUE RAVEN AT ALL COST ****
If you are thinking about going solar stay far away from this dishonest business.

They offered a “production guarantee” that the system they will install will be sufficient enough for our household. Three months later and after doing quite a bit of research, they only installed a 4.72kwp solar array where others would have installed a higher capacity system for the same price. What they installed is obviously not sufficient so now we end up paying for the solar loan on top of our power bill which defeats the whole purpose of going solar!

After confirming with our power company that the system does not even send back excess energy back to the grid to accrue net meter credit, we tried to reach them via phone and they had the nerve to tell us that we have been using excess energy. We already installed the smart thermostat and led light bulbs that they provided during the install to cut down our energy use up to 20% (as they said). We even reduced our AC cooling temperature significantly but the system is just not enough.
After contacting them to let them know about the issue they sent us a quote for additional panels for an ADDED COST. They promised us that they will install additional panels if the initial install is not adequate as part of the “production guarantee”. Other solar installers would have done a proper assessment and installed the correct solar array in the first place and would have honored their initial quote.

We tried escalating the issue to their senior management but never heard anything back, no callback, email, or even a courtesy reply to let us know that they received our correspondence.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH BLUE RAVEN as they are very dishonest and will stop responding to your messages once they get your money. They will, however, work very hard to get more $$$ from you, as THEY WILL OVERPROMISE AND UNDER-DELIVER to squeeze more cash from families looking to switch to sustainable energy.

Go look at their Better Business Bureau profile and see for yourself!

Blue Raven Solar installed a Solar system in my home just about 12 days ago, and my meter has been running backwards ever since! Last year my highest monthly usage was 52kw. Well the meter has already given me 63kw credit in just 12 days! Blue Raven took outstanding care of us every step of the way, and installation was quick (two days) and very professional. I highly recommend Blue Raven, they have exceeded my best expectations.
