  • "Perfect!"

    Reviewed Nov 04, 2019

    I can't add much to what others have said about this superlative company and their staff. Joe and Whitney were there for me all the way, including helping me push my HOA to establish solar rules and approve my installation in a timely fashion. The installation crew was friendly, fast and professional. And of course, the Sunpower 370 panels are extremely efficient. Oddly, I got three proposals. Two others wanted to put low efficiency panels on east and west facing roof slopes and both cost a lot more. Tayco put fewer panels on a south facing slope to produce equivalent power and still beat both the others on price.

    I looked at over 7 solar companies in my area. I picked TayCo and they have exceeded expectations; First Joe and Whitney were knowledgeable about all the options for solar panels. They educated me in terms I understood about +/- of various solar panel systems and the payback. They are an establish company with the ability to service my system for the whole warranty, since its not dependent on just the Whitney, Joe and Edgar team, who have been exceptional. My home had some electrical installation hurdles that they had the lowest cost and best long term solution. Installation was as scheduled and promised. I have had the system for 12 months now and they are still checking on my system and providing exceptional service to the solar system & online monitoring.
    Rebate support was exceptional. Whitney provided step by step instructions and reminder emails, so I recieved the rebate without problems. All round 5 stars experience.

    Getting my home solar set up from start to finish was seamless and easy! Whitney, Joe and everyone who participated in installing the system were great partners. They provided us with all our options and helped us choose the right amount of watts we needed; they didn't try to oversell us. Whitney and Joe were knowledgeable and patient with me as I threw questions and even more questions upon them. Super helpful, professional, honest, just outstanding to work with. They helped me through the financing and rebate processes as well. The solar system has been great, and we have definitely seen a decrease in our bill from our energy provider. To anyone who may be looking into solar energy, I can’t recommend TayCo Electric enough!

    After many, many weeks of research I decided that SunPower has the best panels & warranty in the industry, and that I'd be doing business with TayCo Electric. Joe, the Sales Director, was professional and polite thru the whole process, even at times when I wasn't. He hung in there and got me the system and financing I was after. Whitney, the Project Coordinator, did everything she said she would and walked me thru the entire process, from the initial interconnection application to getting my system commissioned. Edgar and his crew installed the system in almost no time, and left my home looking exactly the way I imagined. If you live in their service area, and are interested in solar, do yourself a favor and call TayCo Electric.

They sell a great product, SunPower panels, one of the best in the industry at a level that you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else.

    Having already conducted extensive research on solar companies, installation, cost estimates and having already experienced the installation of a 16 panel solar system, I couldn’t have been more impressed when I first met Eric Owen and became a TayCo Electric customer. His knowledge base and insight into every aspect of the solar market and state of the art equipment that is available in the field of solar power absolutely blew me away. Not only did he revamp my existing 16 panels to take advantage of newer technology, but he retrofitted the latest support equipment, when he added 17 more solar panels. He went out of his way to ensure the optimal in aesthetic appearance of all the equipment and assisted me in downloading a solar edge app on my phone that would track the production of each of the 33 panels individually. When he realized that my electric provider would only pay me 40% of what they charged per Kwh, he provided a solution for storing excess power that I produced through his company’s innovative business arrangement with the Tesla Corporation. He installed a Tesla Powerwall, which allows me to self-power my entire house; completely off the grid, as long as the charge is capable, and only pull electricity from the grid as a last resort. He also helped download the Tesla app on my phone to monitor the solar production, state of charge on the battery, home power consumption and consumption of electricity from the grid. I have been so impressed that I have signed a contract for TayCo to install an 18 panel solar system on our beach home before the end of the year. By far the most advanced company in terms of technology and knowledge of everything pertaining to solar, TayCo was also the most inexpensive by far and they get every aspect of the job done with astounding speed, accuracy and professionalism. I cannot accurately describe my overwhelming positive assessment of TayCo Electric Co. They are leaps and bounds ahead of their cometition in the rest of the solar and electric community in absolutely every respect.

    This is a review of my experience with Tayco Electric. I choose Tayco based on a number items. One was that they are certified installers of SunPower Solar Systems. The second was when I actually called them the first time and spoke with Whitney. Between knowing the riggers or being SunPower certified and the wealth of information they had on solar panels and systems I knew I would be in good hands.

    Turns out good hands was an understatement. Everything was installed and handled like true professionals. From inspections to symmetry on the layout. They told what my product would be before we started and they were spot on. They told what this would look like when completed, they were spot on. I couldn’t be happier with the way they treated my as a customer. It’s the way it should be.

    I've worked with my fair share of home contractors, and TayCo is far and away the best and most professional. My only concern going in was the relatively small number of solar installs they had completed compared to some of their competitors, but I honestly can't imagine the process being any easier or going any smoother than it did. They have a solid team, were very communicative, and delivered what they promised. My system is working well and looks great too. Highly recommend.

    This is a top notch Sales team and Install team. Joe Jensen the Salesman was very knowledgeable about the whole process of getting the paperwork done to how many panels we would need. I tested him on his knowledge with some very tech orientated questions such as clipping of power and other such items. He delighted me in his knowledge and made it an easier for us to trust his word. The install team was both friendly and professional. I had thrown them a curve by requesting conduit instead of going thru the roof as they had planned for the wiring from the panels to the main panel, They got it done and I am very satisfied with their work. Hector with the install team would be my go to guy for future work I want done on the electrical in my house and I will use this company for other projects I have planned. I had four other companies send a rep out for a presentation and Joe and this company blew them all away with outstanding performance.

  • "4.2kW System Install"

    Reviewed Nov 05, 2018

    My experience with TayCo has been nothing but pleasant from the moment that I submitted my request for a quote on EnergySage. Joe Jensen worked with me through the site to provide quote updates as I was updating my requirements. After talking to multiple companies I went with TayCo because of (1) had the best price for a superior product, (2) provided the longest installation warranty (7 years) in the area and (3) Joe was very knowledgeable and up front so I felt in good hands.

    After deciding to go solar, Joe connected me with Whitney who was my project manager. She was absolutely fantastic in keeping me up to date on the project. There are lot of moving parts when you go solar and a lot of process that needs to be followed with the city, energy company, finance company etc. Whitney handled all of that and continued to stay in touch with me through the process. Due to some bad weather and other city delays it was a couple of months between deciding to go solar and having the panels installed but through the entire time Joe and Whitney were there and guiding me through.

    When it came to installation Edgar and his team were fantastic and treated my home with respect. We discussed multiple options in terms of driving the wires for the units through my home.

    Overall, I am very happy with everyone who interacted with me from TayCo. Honestly, the customer service and the service itself has been one of the best I ever had. So happy that there are small companies out there setting the bar high like this. I would absolutely recommend TayCo to anyone looking to go solar and my only regret is that I couldn't give these guys more business!

  • "Knowledge and honesty"

    Reviewed Aug 29, 2018

    Joe, the representative from TayCo, was very knowledgeable about his company's solar panels and the process it takes to connect to our electric company. He listened patiently and explained thoroughly, Before he went into more details concerning the solar panels themselves, he readily answered our questions concerning how our power company, Energy United, actually inhibits customers from going solar. We are 68 yrs old and in order to recoup our investment, it would take 20 years ( if we used a 20 year, low interest rate loan through their company). Even though we can use our investment as a "hedge" in our electric expense and we would be respecting our environment, out of our $98 monthy electric bill, we would still be paying $68 plus the monthy payment of the solar loan. We cannot afford this at our age. Younger couples could definitely recoup the expense and still have years of "free" solar power left! We loved the look of the product, its efficiency and the warranties, but due to our age and our electric company, we were very sorry we could not go solar at this time. If anyone uses Duke Energy, please consider solar through the TayCo!

    After spending months doing research on solar and which panels and companies are leading the industry, I chose SunPower Solar Panels and they were installed locally by TayCo Electric Inc. I could not be happier with the overall system and experience of being guided through every step of installation.

    Eric Owen initially met with me to go over the process, how solar panels work, etc. and I did not feel pressured into buying anything. I appreciated Eric's honesty and professionalism. The rest of the team that followed, Whitney Smith, Edgar et al. are an awesome bunch! They work tirelessly to make sure the customer is happy with the system and will do anything to correct any issues that may crop-up.

    The TayCo team kept me informed with the approval progress of permits, HOA approval, loan approval, panel shipment status, etc. I have an 11.88 kW system composed of 33 panels, SunPower SPR-X22-360-D-AC. The energy generated so far based on the location of the panels has surpassed expectations and continues to perform well. I chose SunPower due to their extensive warranty, quality of panels and being a leader in the Solar industry.

    If I had to go through the process again on another property, I would definitely go with TayCo Electric Inc. and SunPower Solar Systems.

    Right throughout the process Tayco took the time to understand my needs and desires and went out of their way to ensure I got what I wanted for a fair price. There was absolutely no hard sell - they just wanted me to be comfortable and happy. They were very responsive, and professional/tidy throughout. It was all installed very quickly and as a result they were very flexible on the staged payments. I would definitely recommend Tayco, especially as I had previously investigated an install with another company a year ago, who were very hard sell and not customer focused at all.
