Highly recommend 8MSolar!

Highly recommend 8MSolar! The whole team was great to work with, from rep Jonathan being very knowledgeable and honest to completion of the project - 8MSolar was very accessible and kept us informed during the whole process. Very professional team, respected our home and did a great job with the install. We are thrilled that we went with 8MSolar! There's a reason why 8MSolar is listed as #1 of the 5 best solar companies in North Carolina.

8msolar Knocked It Out Of The Park

8msolar was by far the best value quote. They engineered a system that fully met my requirements and installed it as fast as the permitting process would allow. Their installation personnel did a fantastic job and thoroughly documented the installation photographically. They provided a completely turn-key system that works great.

5 months in. Very satisfied

8m gave me the lowest estimate and fulfilled every request or modification I needed to make even after I had already approved the stage I was needing to modify. ( I did notify them within a day that I had misjudged our agreed upon situation) They did not give me any grief even though I removed a Powerwall from my order which reduced their income They understood perfectly when I described why I did not feel comfortable with stacked Powerwall due to the location it would have been located. They completed the installation in one day rather than 2 by working later into the day than they had planned on. There was a bit of a problem after the system was updated during the evening of the install which resulted in the system only generating from half of the panels, but they identified where the problem was and fixed it within 2 business days. I was still able to run the house with the energy generated from my panels without having to draw from the grid for those days. (FWIW, my utility only pays 1/3 the rate for energy I send to them so for every unit I buy from them, I have to give them 3 back to break even). Also due to the fluctuations of my demand when various appliances cycle on and off, I do on average use about 3-4 KW of energy each day from the grid and while this system balances things by sending an equivalent amount back. I am essentially purchasing 2 KW per day. (I buy 3 KW for $.36 and they buy 3 KW from me for a total of $.12 so it costs me $.24 day multiplied by 30 days so essentially $7.20/month for the grid power.) I also have a $15 service fee plus tax which would make my $23.87 UNLESS I SELL MORE BACK TO THE UTILITY which I do. My average bill over 4 months has been about $16.50 but I will be making out the most during summer months which are coming soon. My system does generate electricity on most cloudy days and my panels and 2 Powerwalls have kept me not needing the grid essentially for all but 7 days over the past 5 months if we had a group of multiple days without adequate solar generation to keep me powered up. I wanted 3 Powerwalls but only could get 2. If I had 3 Powerwalls I probably would not have needed anyway. I do have EV that I can keep charged but the car would have to be at home. Powerwalls at night can not keep your car charged. One 13.5 kw Powerwall would only give me about 60 miles each day if I did not use them to keep the house electrified at night which I do. Solar gives me about 150 miles of charge each week but I do not drive every day. I would use 8m again. They are legitimate and have their own crews and their own office building in Raleigh and they already fixed a problem even after I had paid in full

Exceptional Solar Panel Installation Experience

I recently had the pleasure of working with 8M Solar to install solar panels on my property, and I am beyond impressed with the entire experience. From start to finish, every aspect of the process was handled with professionalism and expertise. First and foremost, the performance of the solar panels has exceeded my expectations. We completed our installation in October; since then, I've consistently seen high production numbers. Although the direction of the house is the key. Speaking of installation, I was thoroughly impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by the team from 8M. They were punctual, efficient, and incredibly skilled at their craft. Not only did they complete the installation promptly, but they also ensured that every detail was attended to meticulously. One aspect that particularly stood out was how clean my installation was. The solar panels were seamlessly integrated into my property, with no unsightly wires or clutter detracting from the aesthetic appeal of my home. Great care was taken to ensure that the installation functioned flawlessly and looked visually appealing. The wiring was also mostly invisible as they were routed through a pipe from the attic to the crawl space. Overall, I couldn't be happier choosing 8M for my solar panel installation. I wholeheartedly recommend 8M to anyone considering switching to solar energy. Thank you for a job well done!

Highly Recommended Solar System Installer

8M Solar was one of the highly recommended ones from the neighborhood app. We finally got ours installed and without regret, we have our system running smoothly and we know we have the right people and company that will back us up. 8M Solar gave us the best value for our Solar System among other companies that we had inquired from.
