Why Work With Us

Why Work With Us

We understand the importance of using the most technologically advanced materials, software and tools to ensure that your savings and estimated solar energy production are accurate. We will take the time to EDUCATE YOU on everything about your electrical needs, your home's abilities and product options to help guide you to make the best decisions for your particular situation. We ensure that lines of communication are open throughout the process and provide consistent check-ins so you are aware of the status of your installation and know exactly what to expect each step of the way. We pride ourselves in our honesty and transparency and believe our customers are our partners throughout the process.

We will start the process by reviewing your home’s energy use by utilizing the most advanced software and your smart meter's Green Button Data to analyze your hourly electrical consumption for the past year. Next, we will model your home and create simulated data to forecast your future bills based on your real hourly usage for the past year. This “Time of Use” information provides key data to give a clear understanding of your use down to the hour and how that will directly impact your expected savings. To finish the assessment, we will pilot a drone around the property to obtain the most accurate view of your home along with exact measurements of any tree's and any other obstructions to read your home's exact shading for every hour of the day based on a decade of average weather data.

Wise solar is a family owned company with the most sophisticated approach to energy management. We have the solutions you are looking for and look forward to working with you!

"The Best!"
Reviewed Apr 29, 2019

Seriosuly, choose this company. I know they have fewer reviews than the other competitors but you will not go wrong. The customer service is excellent! Christina (the account manager on my account) walked me every step of the way, was really responsive, and informative. The whole process was chill and only took 3 weeks; from start to finish. And thats me taking my time. The price is amazing and the work excellent. They really go above and beyond. Go with these guys, you'll be in good hands!

"Amazing work!!!"

I researched several companies when we decided that solar would not only help with our electric bills but also increase the value of our house, we purchased our system, did not lease. We met with Mike Santoyo, who was very helpful. When we signed on with them they gave us a realistic time frame for installation, which was done in one day with no problems at all. We have had the system for several months with no problems. I would highly recommend Wise Solar... Thank You

"Top notch installation, service and support"
Reviewed Mar 04, 2019

After researching several solar companies in north county San Diego, I selected Wise Solar for my solar and battery installation. They were competitive with the other companies but had an technical edge that was attractive to my wife and I. Andrew was able to answer all of my questions and provide details about the battery option that the others did not have. The installation was very professional and I was super impressed with their workmanship. An example; There are at least a dozen of my neighbors that have rooftop solar systems installed. I thought most of them looked clean until I was able to compare to mine! The difference was that every conduit (pipe) transition (there are several of them) that run from the roof to the electrical boxes on the side of my house were painted to match the surface they were installed on. My roof is red tile so the pipes were painted a similar red to match. My house has a coral color stucco so the pipes were painted to match the stucco, etc....It stands out from the rest of my neighbors in a good way :-) While we were designing my solar/battery system, we decided to upgrade my main electrical breaker box to accommodate the new system as well as prepare for future additions (electric car, pool, etc). This required them to completely rip out the existing box (100 amp) to add the new one (200 amp). I was pleasantly surprised when the new box was completely installed and re-stuccoed in one day! They also provided all of the coordination between the city and power company (SDG&E) which made for a seamless installation. Another bonus is when I asked about the system being in the direct sun for most of the day (south side wall under my eve) I was informed that the system is designed for this type of exposure. I looked up 'solar system shade' and found a shade system for around $90 that mounts on to the eve of the house. I showed it to the installer (Mike) and he told me "buy it, here is my credit card"! I received it two days later and installed it above my solar system control panels for good measure. One last note is that I was impressed with the post installation support I received. Andrew has been involved in monitoring my system for the past year and is always available to answer questions. All-in-all these guys are pro's and I would recommend them to my friends and neighbors for their solar needs :-)

Wise Solar delivered a high quality system that looks good and functions very well. They were very attentive to all my questions and concerns.

"Followup"
Reviewed Feb 13, 2019

I am so pleased with our installation from Team Thorry of Wise Solar, Inc.

Lead specialist/analysts, Andrew Thorry drew up a master plan and listened to my requests and implemented them as well. One of these was to have my panel arrays placed at a higher level to hide some roof ducting.

His expert team followed safe and clean standards. I would know as I was an installer for the Federal Aviation Administration and need to follow both OSHA and CAL OSHA procedures.

I changed my Internet ID and was having problems reconnecting the Enphase micro inverters to the internet. I called Andrew and he talked me through it, but there was still something that needed him to reconnect through his Toolbox application.

His followup and professionalism was awesome.

I look forward to his service of adding a battery backup system soon.
Please feel free to share this review and any questions from potential clients my way.

Two years ago, I explored solar with a rep from a big company who was stationed at Home Depot. I ended up confused and decided not to move forward. Fast forward two years: I found Andrew and Wise Solar totally by accident, through a referral from someone with a lot of knowledge about the industry. Andrew came out and flew a drone over my house, showing me exactly where the panels would go for best results, recommending what kind of panels would be best, and working up clear pricing and terms without a lot of confusion. He never tried to oversell me on equipment beyond what was necessary.

Andrew handled the city permitting and inspecting process with patience and diligence, and the installation went without a hitch. My system is up and running, and generating even more power than expected, which is good for me, good for the planet, and just all around -- good!

Months after the installation, Andrew and his associates went to bat for me with a rebate program from my city, a process that involved a lot of red tape and took a lot of persistence on their part.

I highly recommend consulting with Andrew at Wise Solar if you're shopping around for solar.

Andrew and his team did a great job of installing my solar system. It's a 7-panel job that I ordered the third week of December and they got it installed before the end of the New Year so I could get the tax credits! Highly recommend!

"Best solar company around"
Reviewed Feb 06, 2019

I interviewed over 10 companies before I decided to go with Wise Solar. This company promised to have me up and running in a much shorter time than ANY of the others and came through as promised. They installed my system last year and I've had no issues since. I got my REBATE check from Edison a month ago, which means my system delivered as promised ! Smooth process, professional service, reliable support. I've been recommending them to everyone I know. If I had to do it all over again I'd still go with this company, you won't find any better company. Thank you Mike, Andrew, and the crew !!

"Solar Installation"

Nearly a year ago, my wife and I installed solar panels at our office. We could not have made a better decision. Wise Solar were not only incredibly competitive on price but there service they provided to us during both the installation as well as afterwards was top rate. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Our electric bill is now down to virtually nothing. Could not be happier

We are picky, We are contractors ourselves. We wanted an easy contracting and installation process. We found it with Wise Solar. At N/C, they prepared a set of drawings for our HOA and also set up story poles (wood pieces), to show our neighbors what it would look like and how it would affect their view of the ocean. The job was complete on time with minimum of hassle. In fact, the two neighbors who had to approve the project, are now getting quotes from Wise Solar, as well. Easy process, very nice install. Would highly recommend! Marika

Great from the sales presentation by Robert, which I have already endured too many before choosing Wise Solar, to the installation which Mike took care of personally and I do appreciate his hard work. He came when he said he would and if anything wasn't to my satisfaction, he would come back to make sure I was happy with his work.
I had another company do solar at the house but they undersold me, and I needed a bigger system to handle the load. That seems to be common with sales pitches. Get a system that meets your needs or you will be unhappy every time you make a payment.
Now I don't have to look at a DWP bill and hold my breath!
I recommend them to anyone looking

Andrew and Mike are real pros. The Wise Solar team did a great job in installing our system. They explained the system use clearly. One of our panels turned up a fault, but Andrew's team detected the fault before we noticed it and proactively addressed the fault. (The panel needed replacement under warranty).
