  • "No complaints, great power"

    Reviewed Aug 26, 2020

    When I first made an inquiry on Energysage for putting Solar on my home I had maybe a dozen responses. Gulf Electrical was one of the first, their quote was one of the best. However, what really impressed me is that they sized my system based on my roof (from google maps) in their initial quote and it was spot on. Several of the other companies quoted me for systems that would not fit on my roof. They became my favorite and I checked their reviews on both the internet and BBB, pretty much outstanding across the board. Nick handled my initial inquiries and all answers were to my satisfaction. Issues based on Covid-19 delayed my decision to proceed and when we decided to go, Silas was the point. He was on time, provided all the information I needed and we signed immediately. Covid-19 again reared its ugly head and it took 6 weeks to get a permit that would usually be issued in 2 days! Anyway, the system was installed a few days after the permit was issued.
    Glen and Shawn (sean?) were the installers. They were pleasant and clearly knowledgeable. I am a research scientist and this is my second house with solar so I know when I talk to somebody that they know what they are doing. They treated the install as if it was there own. Felt bad that they were doing the install on a two-story metal roof in the Florida summer, but they had a great attitude the whole time. Building/electrical inspectors were very satisfied with their work as well, nothing needed to be changed to pass inspection.
    After the install, Silas and Nick guided the process of inspections and utility interconnections without a hitch. My system is up and running, producing probably about 20% more than I anticipated. Quite satisfied, great company, highly recommend.

  • "Wow! What a company!"

    Reviewed Feb 27, 2020

    I did my research and with an assist from EnergySage I went with Gulf Electrical. The quality, service and price were what I was looking for but that was at first all on paper. When I met Nick he calmly put everything in layman’s terms, was forthright with company and product comparisons and refused to sell me anything I didn’t need. His follow up with the install and continued service is top notch! The installers were fast, clean, professional and enjoyed what they were doing. They used the best products to secure the panels and my roof looks incredible! Josh hooked up my power and returned to insure my app was working on my phone. My power production couldn’t be better! Silas and his home office oversight let me know this company is for real and supportive from top to bottom. The amazing price of the setup would throw you if you think high cost is equal to quality. I saved thousands and gained a highly professional and high quality service! I can’t say enough good things about Gulf Electrical!

    "2019 Great Solar Install from Gulf Electric- Thank you Silas"

    Reviewed Feb 14, 2020

    We researched many solar companies over 2019 (seven companies came out to our house-many with lies or stretching the truth to avoiding questions that hold them responsible), we finally came across Gulf Electrical- Silas came out to us and explained everything and was very patient with our questions as we did have a lot of them, on first visit he had a custom booklet printed out with all of “our” house details, pictures, and a very good estimate on what our roof would look like with the proposed system ( not like the other companies that just zoom in on google maps and slap panels onto your roof not knowing the obstacles they can’t put over- all on a computer not something in your hands) Silas flew a drone over our house took some final pictures and made only had to make a few adjustments. We took a few weeks to think about the process and Silas came back out to the house and again answered our final questions. He was also very quick with email/text response. We signed that day. A few weeks later we got the call that our panels could be installed the next day, everything arrived and Silas was on site that day to make sure everything went as planned. install took a few days but mostly due to our request that all cords and pipes were hidden under our roof ( cleanest solar job in our area by far!!!)
    Silas stopped by again to make sure everything was up to our standards and that we knew how to turn the system on and off.
    Once everything was completed and passed inspection we were up and running. We ran into a glitch on the monitoring website but as soon as we emailed Silas he was on it, and fixed it the same day! ( this had nothing to do with actual production as that goes through the meter, this was just consumer information to see how your panels are performing)
    We truly believe that Gulf Electric has far more superior products than other companies “pitching” their products and top of the line customer service, we will absolutely be referring our friends and family as well as anyone who asks.
    Our system installed was 34 Panasonic panels 11.05Kw system with 34 micro inverters.

    My husband and I were looking to install solars and after meeting with several companies and receiving several quotes decided to work with Gulf Electrical, as they offer us the best system for the best value and I couldnt be happier with their professional service. We made an appointment and Silas showed up on time, hw went up on my roof to inspect it and take some picturilas and afterwards he met with met with us and explainedtook in detail the different systems and the different options available to us. The process was very stress free, installation was done in a day. Silas was always available and very responsive from the time I signed my contract to net meter connection.

    I highly recommend this company.

    Gulf Electrical Services was awesome to deal with for our solar project. We found them on EnergySage when we requested quotes. Silas was a pleasure to work with during the whole process. He made several changes at my request and was very helpful and knowledgeable. No pressure at all during the process. The installation crew was great as well. They showed up when they said they would and took the time to do the job right. They even spent a day in my hot attic running all the wires. The end results look great! We couldn’t be happier. The system has been on for a week now and producing more power then I was expecting.

    Gulf Electrical Services provided us with a great system at a great price with outstanding support and service. Highly recommend them.

    I had been entertaining the idea of solar panels for a couple of years after a couple of different door to door salesmen piqued my interest. I started doing some research on my own and came across EnergySage, where I submitted a request for quotes and got several quotes back, most of them costing less than what the door to door guys were offering. After reviewing all of the quotes, Gulf Electrical was offering the best combination of price, equipment, and warranty. I reached out to Silas to obtain more information and he quickly answered any questions about solar as a whole, and the following week made a follow up visit to my house to sit down with me and explain to me differences in equipment, manufacturers, and to address any concerns I had about what a solar installation would look like. My mind was at ease, and soon after I entered into a contract to have Gulf Electrical perform the installation. From the very first visit, through the installation process, and to the final inspection every person I dealt with was a true professional very knowledgeable in their craft. They worked around my work schedule to schedule the installation and to schedule the inspection and stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process. While I'm still waiting on the electric company to do their part for the netmetering so I can see the difference it makes in my electric bill, I feel certain that I made the right choice in choosing Gulf Electrical to meet my solar needs. Super professional, super friendly, super informative. I couldn't have asked for an easier or better process. Thank you Silas, Nick, Josh, Cory, and the entire Gulf Electrical team for your time and your knowledge and for making this a stress-free project for me and my family.

    I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Gulf Electrical Service, LLC. From my first contact with them on EnergySage to the completion of the installation and follow up contacts afterwards, they have been responsive, professional and knowledgeable. Within hours of reaching out to them, they had a quote to me that had most other companies beat by a considerable amount. Silas was quick to get back to me after I requested a change to our quote and completed an extensive shading analysis that was very helpful to us. It was clear that they were the company for us, even though at first I was a bit hesitant because they didn't have many reviews on EnergySage and their price was so much better than others. The installation crew, managed by Nick, arrived when they said they would and they were top notch in their craftsmanship. The panels look really great on the roof and the wires/conduits were well placed on the roof and walls so that everything looks really crisp. We have been producing electricity for about 2 weeks now. Silas has been quick to answer all of my questions and took extra time to explain the monitoring system and the associated smart phone apps. It's early, however it seems that their calculations for what the system should generate are spot on. In summary, we recommend Gulf Electrical Service, LLC, without reservation. If I had a single complaint, I would put it in here, but I really don't. Solid 5 stars all the way around.

    G.E.S., has been nothing short of outstanding from start to finish of my PV install. Every step of the process was detailed and the installer kept me informed of every issue. No high pressure sales tactic or overstating what is needed for your solar system. G.E.S. took care of the whole process from the beginning to the time to FLIP the switch. I meet with lots of installers some i felt was overselling and showed unrealistic array designs not taking into account certain fans and vents on the roof. Some had very little knowledge of their on panels or racks they were using. Nevertheless G.E.S. came with no hardball tactics or trying to up sell certain panels, optimizers, racks etc. They listen and took extra care in listening to my goals, expectation for the system I wanted. G.E.S. delivered. Highly recommend this company. And their warranty is longer than some others. Thanks to the team at G.E.S. for a job well done from Silas to Nick and his installers.

    These guys were excellent from start to finish. Unlike some companies who first sent someone who knew less about solar energy than I learned in a month, the first person Gulf Electrical sent to my house was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of solar energy and his products and took lots of time explaining these features and answering my questions… not pushy at all. They were prompt in responding to my questions throughout the entire process and the system looks great. We asked for no visible exposed wires and they delivered. Forgot to mention… they offered a great price as well. I just turned the system on today and it is already providing more electricity than we are using. Highly recommend them.
    UPDATE 5/17/20: More good news. Silas told me our system should produce 19,105 kWh/year. Today, exactly one year after going online, our system has produced 19,510 kWh. Just one more example of why you can trust these guys.

  • "Exceeds expectations"

    Reviewed Apr 24, 2019

    Gulf Electric installed a 36 Panasonic Solar Panels in my house. They were great answering all my questions and explaining the system. In addition to offering a great cost for the system they added a discount for veterans. Installation was completed on 29 March with the county inspection and is power production is exceeding the projections. The Solar edge inverter monitoring system is great. I get to see the actual output of each panel . Bottom line, this company provides a great system and also great support and service.

    All I can say is WOW! Gulf Electrical made this experience as easy as possible. They are prompt, courteous, listen to you needs, professional and give you the best options for your situation. And...beat all the other solar companies quote by a long shot, WITHOUT compromise to the quality of the product, in fact on the day of delivery, I got a higher quality of panel than on the quote. I am extremely happy and WILL recommend them to anyone who is looking to go solar. If you are military or a veteran, they give a great discount on top of their already unbeatable rate.
