"Go with GR8 Energy"

"Not Just GR8, but also Great!"

Our choice to go solar was dropped, but it had nothing to with the great experience and service provided by energysage and GR8 Energy. They were my leading choice based upon their responsiveness, pricing, and quoted equipment and service.

The whole process of selection, purchasing and installation was very smooth. My 12 panel system was installed and fully connected in a single day. Everything is working and looking great. Couldn't not have asked for more.
