    "Would Do It All Over Again -- Great Company!"

    Reviewed Jun 26, 2022

    We are super happy with our experience with 8MSolar. We got three estimates for our home project (2850 square foot home with foam insulation built in 2012) and 8M came in $10K under the other two. Just as importantly, they were completely transparent, did not try to sell us a "we will tighten up your home" package (with foam insulation our home is already pretty tight) and 8M didn't try to act like giving us a "free" programmable thermostat is a selling point. Nope, they cut right to the chase of the quality of their solar panels, the warranty they carry, how they work, how much we need and what they would cost. They didn't try to upsell us the most expensive thing they offer, either. They also didn't factor in the Duke Rebate as if it was a guarantee (it isn't, don't count on it -- we tried twice and never got it). Every person we worked with at 8M was responsive and professional. They were willing to re-do the original drawings to put a few of the panels in a different place so it would look more like I wanted it to look on the roof. Install went smoothly in one day, inspections passed no problems, turn on went well and it's been running efficiently for six months. Our power bill has been $15-$20 a month since we hooked up. They do seem kind of sluggish on giving back money when you refer them customers, though, even though they say they have a program -- I had to ask numerous times about that. That is my only negative comment.

    Reviewed Jun 17, 2022

    We had an excellent experience with 8M Solar from initial pricing to final out-the-door customer service. Our project grew in the process and included installation on new construction as well as an expansion to two systems on one property. At each step 8M Solar provided competent people who communicated well with us and answered our many questions.
