Barnes Solar separates itself from the competition with its commitment to high-quality installation work, efficient installation timelines, hands-on customer service and fair pricing. Barnes is dedicated to making sure the job is done quickly and correctly and that the homeowner feels they are receiving the benefits they were promised in the sales pitch.
Barnes Solar is a local, family owned residential and commercial solar installation company that has been installing solar in Southern California since 2008.
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!
After shopping with 5 other solar companies for 6 months and nearly giving up because of changing sales reps, changing designs, changing quotes, unresponsiveness, and vague pricing, decided to call Barnes. Best. Decision. Ever. From first call to installed panels was just over 1 month. Everything was clear and transparent. They designed an appropriately sized system with extremely fair pricing. Best of all, I never waited more than a couple hours to get a response before, during, and after the install. We couldn't be happier with the end result and recommend them to everyone in the area.
I had 3 quotes (Tesla, Sunpower and Barnes Solar). Finally, I selected local company Barnes solar due to their response time, transparency, 25yr warranty on equipment+ service , quote and guarantee to finish work on given quote (if extra , they will pay as my budget is fixed) .
Their Service and my experience from start to end was great. I worked with Jack at Barnes Solar. They took care my HOA, city ,SCE form and approvals OR in other word, they took care everything. Workmanship of crew and electrical personnel was better than I expected. Very friendly , professional and honest in communication. They made suggestions from experience for all equipment location/ plan and where to run electric pipes which I changed a bit and approved. Due to my electric panel didn’t had enough space for wiring, they added one more medium size electrical panel (took 5-6hr to install + equipment cost) (which was not planned or was not included in quote), They installed it at no cost due to prior agreement.
I will definitely recommend them to all my friends and family.
Jake at Barnes solar was great to deal with. Very responsive and knowledgeable. Happy with my new panels and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.
