It's about about 1 year since I went with Next Solar for my Solar needs. After speaking to Dosie @ Next Solar and a few other solar providers, I decided to go with Next Solar as their quote was one of the best and I liked that Dosie was not pushy. After I signed the contract, they had someone out to do the in person consultation pretty quick. The in person consultation was smooth and efficient. They hopped on the roof and took some photos and that was it. Within a week or two, they had a crew come out with everything to do the install. Install was done in a day and that was impressive. What happened next was really the fault of the CITY OF SF, as they just love to hire people with no brain cells... a story for another day. I had to do some leg work between the city approving the permit/plan and Next Solar as the city was dragging their feet. Once the city finally approved, it was then PG&E to do their approval, which took another 2 weeks. All in all, Next Solar did their party quick and efficiently but the City permit is what took the longest. It was about 3.5-4 months from beginning to end and since then, the system has been working great with no issues. If I was to do it all over again, I would not hesitate to go with Next Solar again especially after learning that the big guys such as Tesla, Sunrun, Sunpower, etc sometimes use Next Solar as a subcontractor and charge more so they get a piece of the pie. Please keep up the good work Next Solar!

Highly recommended!

Luis explained to me clearly the process, cost, product comparison, and timeline. With the NEM 2.0 frenzies, he still managed to schedule the work in a timely manner. He was a bit slow in answering the emails. I'm sure that he's just busy running around and couldn't just monitor his email. That's why I dented the "responsiveness" star a bit. Though, he always picked up the calls. The craftsmanship was quite good. The original installer that came in did something wrong and Luis noticed that by himself and he actively contacted me that his new crews would come over to correct the mistake. My bathroom vent turned out to impact the yield of one of the panels and he also came over to move that panel. All in all, super happy with the Next Solar. Highly recommended!

Honest and highly rated and reviewed ...

Next Solar was one of the first to send me a quote. But then I had an issue because I accidentally pushed "select" on Next Solar inc. I got a call from Alex, the engineer asking me if I had made an honest mistake since I had never spoken to anyone from Next Solar inc. nor have I had even requested a meeting. I said yes and thanked him for his honesty. I have not made a decision on which solar company to hire but even though, Next Solar is not the cheapest, I am probably going to use them. I will write another review when I do. But so far, they are real honest. I was also very impressed with Energysage and Ben in particular. I had a 15 minute meeting with him and he answered all of my questions with great answers and was very patient with me. I really am enjoying this experience with Energysage because previously, I dealt with the Better Business Bureau and the companies that paid to be on their website. Yes, companies have to pay to get on BBB. I didn't know that. So that's why many companies have A+ ratings on BBB and yet on yelp and other ratings sites, they have very low ratings. Dealing with Solar companies has definitely put me on the defensive when dealing with any of them. Also, do not use Lumio or their financing company, Goodleap. They had a door to door salesman come and got my dad to sign a contract. My dad is 78 years old and his english is not very good. Obviously it was his fault for signing. However, he then tried to cancel the contract that night by calling the salesman and asking for a cancellation. The salesperson told him twice that it was cancelled. My dad then told me about the contract and then I read the contract. It said that you need to cancel within 3 days of the signing date. I called the national number and asked if the contract was cancelled. They said that it was not. The salesman had lied to my father, hoping that the contract would be legalized when the 3 days were up (you have 3 days to SIGN THE CANCELLATION contract and MAIL THE PAPERWORK to Utah). Luckily, I sent it overnight and it got there in time but it was a close call. I then went online and found so many other horror stories about being pressured into a sale and then not being able to cancel. Please do your research and don't sign anything until you are 100% sure.

Amazing and efficient!!!

Next Solar did an exceptional job!!! Dosie and Luis were very helpful. They both went out of their way to ensure the process was smooth and efficient. Dosie was always available and very helpful. Luis made a number of home visits and was able to answer all of my questions. Truly appreciate everything they did. I highly recommend going with Next Solar!!!

Smooth Solar Sailing

Can't say enough about my great experience with Next. Dosie, Luis and crew we're engaging, communicative and collaborative every step of the way. One of my main concerns was dealing with the San Francisco/PG&E permitting process, which tends to be lengthy, bureaucratic, and painful. They had my install done within a month of signing the contract, and SF signed off 3 days after the install! It only took another week for PGE and I was producing energy into the grid. I was also very happy with their competitive pricing. Great team to work with!

Amazing Service!

Next Solar Inc did an incredible job installing our system. Luis was always attentive to our needs, going way above and beyond in every way. Whether it was the level of absolute integrity with the intent on the most minor details during installation, coming out in sub-zero wind chill for hours to personally deal with inspection details, or driving an hour just to come by and show us how to use the monitoring system, Next Solar, and particularly Luis, impressed us during the entire project and I would most certainly recommend them to ANYONE! Anyone is welcome to come by and see the awesome project that Next Solar did for us. Reach out to Luis and tell him I sent ya!
