Jeff & Bluestar Solar are excellent solar contractors.
My wife and I moved into a home in Albemarle County in April 2018 and immediately started shopping around for a solar installer. After doing a lot of research, I found several more expensive options that bundled home efficiency improvements with the installation costs and other options that tried to upsell you into producing more power than you need.
Here's the thing with solar in Virginia - if you produce more than you use, you 'bank it' against future months where you produce less than you use. But if you have any extra kWh in your
'bank' at the end of the year, you lose it. So it's not worth buying a system that _always_ produces more than you use... rather you should buy a system that produces, over the course of the year, what you expect to use in total.
Jeff helped us understand that and bid very competitively on energysage.com for our business. He was prompt, courteous, efficient and communicated excellently. We got exactly what we asked for at the best price I could find. I think the whole process from putting down a deposit with Jeff to getting the net meter installed was less than a month.
I just got my first electrical bill from Dominion after the first full month (August 2018) of having a 10 kW installed and my bill was $6 (100% of that is the grid connection fee).
We couldn't be happier, and couldn't recommend Jeff any more!
