Palmetto State Solar - Profile & Reviews

  • Installer
  • Solar O&M Provider

Palmetto State Solar was founded in 2016 by Aaron Davis. Aaron has a long history in solar sales, beginning in California, and then expanding to the Carolinas. His experience with the in-home sales model had left him somewhat disenfranchised. He was the guy making promises that someone else was tasked to keep. When he started this company in 2016, he knew that he now had the ability to keep all those promises, and that's what he has done. From the initial contact, to the point of sale, to post install customer care, he has a system and a team that maintains excellent communication, and prompt service, every single time. There is nothing more important to us than producing happy customers.

    I spoke with several solar companies prior to choosing one. I am very glad I deciding to go with Palmetto State Solar as they went above and beyond for me and my family.

    Thank you for being amazing! Not only did your sales guy James go above and beyond but the owner also went above and beyond! Thanks for helping me battle with my HOA! I started with another company but meeting James I fired the other company right away and I knew I had to go with Palmetto Start Solar! James went above and beyond the whole way the other company wouldn’t listen to a word I had to say and what I wanted and James did. Even your staff on the phone was amazing and very friendly! I tell all my neighbors if your going solar go with you!

    Glad you reached out to me Jessica on here! I was with another company and desperately searching for a better company then I found Palmetto State Solar!

  • "Solar installation"

    Reviewed Jan 15, 2020

    Palmetto State Solar installed a 17.55 KW solar panel system on our roof. Other solar companies have studied the installation and elected not to attempt it because our roof design required a number of smaller separate installations to meet our power requirements. Palmetto State designed a clever installation to meet requirements then completed the entire installation in 2 days. Installation quality was excellent and passed all inspections without any rework. The entire project took less than 3 months from our first contact with Palmetto State until power was turned on, and 3 weeks of that was waiting for Duke to approve operation and provide a new power meter. Contact with Palmetto State has been easy and someone has responded to all questions in 24 hours or less. I would strongly recommend Palmetto State Solar to anyone interested in solar power.

    if you want a great experience then go with any other company. if you want to be insulted and threatened, go with this one. the system wasn't even commissioned yet and i was being harassed. i'm sure the owner will write a rant reply to this, just you wait...

    update: 1.12.20 system still not accessible via solaredge site. if you choose to go with these guys, make sure you make final payment due upon commissioning of the system.

    Mr Gorka was several weeks delinquent on his payment and had lied on multiple occasions about the 'check being in the mail'. After several weeks of lies and language that would suggest he had no intention of making payment, I informed him that I would be forced to place a lien on his home, as is standard practice in the construction industry when people don't pay their bills. Consequently he did pay, and no lien was placed.

    We keep excellent documentation on everything, so I would be happy to show the full story to anyone interested. However, as this review stands in stark contrast to every other review we have here, I think it is plain for anyone to see where the problem lays.

    Aaron Davis - (Terrible) Owner, Palmetto State Solar

    UPDATE 1/15/20 In response to Mr. Gorka's update - our office left voicemails with instructions on how to turn his system on on 10/8/19 and 10/28/19, an email on 11/4/19 and more voicemails on 11/5/19 and 12/2/19. Furthermore, he has had access to his SolarEdge monitoring account the entire time. If he chooses not to turn his system on, there is very little we can do about that.

  • "Going solar"

    Reviewed Dec 12, 2019

    On December 4th, the switch got turned on and we went solar. From the first visit from Palmetto State Solar by Hennessey to the last when our electric co-op made the connection to the solar array, the process went without a hitch.

    Going solar is NOT a simple process. There are many moving parts and choices to be made along with coordination with local building authorities and your power provider. Palmetto State Solar worked with all of them to a very satisfactory outcome.

    We are in the short sunny days right now and this review will be updated as time passes and production of electricity can be measured during months of high electricity usage.

  • "The Solar Review"

    Reviewed Nov 26, 2019

    This company ROCKS! We recently made the leap to solar power both to lower our electric bill, leave a cleaner footprint, and increase the value of our house. Our system was installed within a few weeks and we couldn’t be happier. Any initial doubts were eliminated after our first half hour of talking to Hennessey.. She was very knowledgeable and explained the process in a way we could understand. Once the project was started, it continued smoothly to completion. We were informed every step of the way and felt like we were part of the project even though Palmetto Solar did all the work. The paper work was easy to understand and navigate online. They communicated with the electric company and county on our behalf. These people obviously love their work. Everyone was friendly, professional, and helpful. Hats off to Jessica, Allison, Aaron, Ryan and the install group. We wish you continued success.

    They were easy to work with, answered all of our questions quickly, and were really helpful throughout the process. They let us know what to expect, roughly how long each step would take, and kept us informed when things changed.

    The installation went well, they communicated what was happening and what to expect, and were very respectful of our home and our neighbors while they were here working.

    The system is up and running now, and we're very satisfied.

    Very quick. Very professional. They were on time and kept me involved of everything that was going on. We just had our electric company come out and finish everything so we just started saving money! I would recommend them to anyone. They handle all the paperwork and I had to do nothing. They even met us on a Saturday to go over the initial estimate.
