Extremely happy with Barnes Solar

I waited to write this review because I wanted to have enough time with the system to write a fair review. We have now been installed about 9 months and we are extremely happy with our choice to go with Barnes Solar. They were professional, responsive and fair. Initially, we were leaning toward another vendor, but after talking to neighbors we researched Barnes and decided to go with them. It was a great decision. Throughout the process, our project manager worked hand-in-hand with us. Even several months after installation, when I contacted him for copies of paperwork, he immediately replied and provided the materials. I would highly recommend Barnes Solar.

I recommend Barnes Solar hands down.

Let me save you some time on deciding whether to get solar and which contractor to use. Not only was Barnes Solar the best price they did a great job. It took me a long time to decide to go solar. Now that I had it installed; I should have done it a long time ago. Picking the right contractor was another challenge. There are so many contractors in this industry I didn’t know how to proceed. So I took the time and started getting estimates. Normally I get 3 estimates and decide which one will do the best job at the best price. Not necessarily the lowest bid. With solar I got 8 estimates. My project was a custom one. Barnes Solar beat out the competition. Even after the installation I had questions and Barnes Solar was there to help.

Awesome Company - Spectacular Service!!!

I chose Barnes for my Solar Installation and I couldn't be happier. As we were going through the bidding portion, as one would expect, they were super quick with responses to my questions. BUT... even more important AFTER the installation was done (and my invoice paid!), when I called with questions, they were RIGHT THERE with answers. Super Pleased!

Made the Right Choice

We contacted a few Solar installers, gave them a spreadsheet of the last few years of our electrical consumption by month and had them come over to give us their thoughts and cost proposal. Prices were close and most everyone was nice and knowledgeable, but Jake from Barnes was especially clear, patient and even offered to take a quick look at the roof (1 story flat roof and I have a tall ladder). Jake's pricing was good and he came prepared with 2 proposals, 1 based on our recent use and 1 that would be enough for a future 2nd electric car. We agreed to move forward with Barnes, including a new 125A subpanel. The Barnes crew was friendly and clean. Jake was very interactive with e-mail and a couple phone calls. The only negative was the time it took for our city to issue the permit, and as a city employee I know that was true. Bottom line - We had a great experience and recommend Barnes (and Jake) without reservation.

No ones perfect? I beg to differ!

Ever hear the oft-used phrase, " No one's perfect"? Well, count that as a myth now. Following much research, and several bids, ( AND one scorching summer/fall with electric bills soaring into the $500's even with thermostat at 80), we settled with the company who not only used aerial google photos, but "old school style", actually put a guy on the roof to check the way the sun hit the roof in consideration of our giant shade trees; human sundial fashion; Ricky reset the " typical" position to an array that would bring the best benefit specific for our site. Ricky also advised not over buying panels and his calculations have proven near exact. (This guy's good!) We had a bit extra produced energy, received a small check from Edison, so easily added a Tesla. Still covered. Yep, Barnes Solar sent the best, most professional squad to install the new system, electric panel, as well as the most recent addition, a Tesla charger much thanks to Jose who set that up, with exceptional skill, cleanup and professionalism. Jake, was great to work with, in keeping us on the schedule. This company IS perfect! You can take THAT to the bank.... unless you haven't gotten your solar from Barnes Solar that is!
