Sub-par service

We have had Pingo Solar installed for about 5 years. For almost a year now the production is 50% of what it should be, because one of the invertor seems to be out. I have been calling for last 3-4 months, and there is no response. This while I would not depend on the service by this company.

A painless, low-friction experience end-to-end

Pingo Solar is a straightforward, knowledgeable, no-BS outfit. I wanted to upgrade my existing 2kW system to use smart inverters, and add more capacity to offset rising electrical costs. Scott helped me decide on the right smart inverter technology, and size my upgrade correctly; Hayden and Alex made sure the installation and certification process went as smoothly as possible (wow, SCE is a pain), and Eugene solved a minor post-installation glitch quickly. I nearly tripled my system's capacity for less than I paid for my original installation. Just a painless, low-friction experience end-to-end. Kudos, Pingo Solar!

Pingo deserves a 5 star rating... Scott is very easy to work with and very professional. All the the workers were friendly, courteous and efficient from the start to finish including clean up. I will recommend Pingo to anyone!

Excellent installation of 25 panels in early 2019

I selected Pingo over a couple of very competitive offers because I preferred to work with a local team who would be reasonably pricing the work, competent in explaining the solution, and showing expertise. Once I selected Pingo, they were very transparent in setting up the permits, getting the materials and scheduling the installation. I wasn’t able to set everything up on the very tight schedule I originally targeted, but we found a mutually acceptable timeline. The work was done with quality - I’ve checked multiple points over the 1.5 years that passed since we turned the system on. This included a couple of times when I was on the roof to wash the panels; some electric work completed around the circuit breakers; and checking on the generation data many, many times. I had one question to the team a few months after the installation (about the password to access the inverter’s settings) - and it was handled very quickly & nicely. I certainly recommend Pingo as the solar panel installer in the area (LA - LB - Anaheim triangle).

2019-2020 solar journey in OC with COVID-19

I’m doing this review 7 months after my initial contact with quote for solar installation and EV home charger in Orange County. This has been a very long and at times frustrating process. I had initially selected another solar company, but they turned out to be too pushy, salesman for me. I then received bids from several companies and utilised EnergySage to compare and help me make sense of it all. I chose Pingo Solar as the system they suggested and their reputation per EnergySage was #1. Hayden was my project manager; he stuck with me & my obstacle laden process till completion, just last week. While it took a very long time, this was due to the utilities delays. Pingo did their part as quickly & efficiently as possible. They found a way to get my system up & going for EV charging months ahead of standard schedule which I really appreciated. There were parts of the process and equipment involved which I did not anticipate or understand. Hayden patiently explained. The Pingo crew has been around my newly purchased (Nov 19) home on and off for 7 months now. We got to face the challenges of COVID-19 together. They have always been tidy, respectful, and careful as appropriate re wearing face masks and maintaining physical distancing. And, I now have an upgraded modern era main service panel, EV charger and solar system which so far has my house producing all my electricity needs plus some. I highly recommend Pingo Solar for their professionalism, ability to handle challenging situations well and absence of typical solar system salesmen tactics.

Great, Upfront, Low Pressure

Pingo completed an installation on time and quoted budget. Smooth process. Little late writing the review as it was installed in June, but certainly want to review when things go well. With construction -- it is also the little things that matter. Like going to home depot and color matching the paint so that the conduit matched the house. i would certainly recommend them
