"All Sunny in Florida"
Reviewed Oct 14, 2019

I started researching about solar PV system through Energy Sage and requested what I believed was the best system for our climate and my home. I received several quotes and wasn't impressed by any one of them.
Just one company from the list didn't want to give me an estimate. I emailed them asking why and got their explanation about how and what they do to give customers the best quality of equipment and the best service and warranty for a reasonable price. That company was Unicity Solar Energy Inc.. I called them, talked to John Selby and with no sales pitch at all, got answers to all my questions and concerns. He prepared me an estimate and emailed it for review. His price wasn't the lowest, but neither the highest, felt just right and I pulled the trigger. I had to replace my roof too and it took me almost two months to finish it. During that time I was informed about design-permit approval and within a week of my roof completion my solar system was working. The installers with Donnie as lead electrician did great job in one day. We had a little hick up, more to confirm how great their customer service was fixing it up a day after my email. They expedited even OUC to get new electric meter sooner than promised. My system is producing what was promised and I'm very happy with it.
Now I'm extending my system to be able to charge my new electric vehicle and you can guess who I'm going to use again. Thank you John Selby, Nolan, Donnie and crew, on a great experience in times when is very hard to find competent knowledgeable and honest people to do business with.

"Unicity is the best"
Reviewed Oct 09, 2019

The only reason I go solar is because of Unicity. After they provided me the quote and compared with others, I did a research of what types of panels they provide, what inverters they use, and what type of mount they use for a week. After learning a lot of solar, I made my big decision to go solar project with them. I am really glad to know Matt's team. Matt responds my questions in details really quick, and i have also learned a lot from him as well. Going solar is a long journey, but it is really worth of doing it. Natural resource is created by God, why not to use it. You won't be disappointed when choosing Unicity for your solar project in FL. No mater you are 600 miles or 2 miles away from their office, they will cover you with their great warranty. Panasonic panel has the lowest degradation rate as 0.26%.

"great company"
Reviewed Sep 09, 2019

Great professional company. They do things a bit different than most of the others out there. No one came to house before install day. All software pre inspection. Installers were great and showed up pretty much as scheduled. We did get rained out the first install date but that wasn't company's fault. I mean roofs and rain and electricity don't mix so I was ok with that. Took a bit to get rescheduled . But we worked it out and just a couple of weeks after we have panels on the roof . Took about half a day and job was done. . Installers were great an very patient with answering the questions I had. They even made sure that there wasn't ant Little bits and pieces left over no trash.

"Great company, they've installed 12 homes in my community!"
Reviewed Jul 31, 2019

I first noticed a large Unicity truck at one of my neighbors' homes on way home one afternoon. I had been wanting to go solar for a long time but had been hesitant due to all of the negative things you see online with shoddy companies. The next day I noticed their truck at a different neighbors home and another one a few days afterward.

I went and talked to one of the neighbors that had been installed and they raved about their experience, so I gave Unicity a call to see what they could do for me as well. To my surprise, their representative Barrette was very informative, straight to the point and did not make me feel uncomfortable at any point during his visit to my home. He explained everything in exact detail so I would not have any surprises and I could tell he was an honest guy who loves what he does. After reviewing the financial part of his proposal, it didn't make sense not to go solar. It saves me money, helps me go green, and a quick google search confirmed their products are the best on the market.

About 3 weeks after signing the paperwork the same crew that had done all of the neighbors' work showed up to do my installation. It is very impressive how professional the crew is. They showed up in their big truck, had matching uniforms and quickly began doing their work. You can tell they have been doing this for a long time and work really well together. My installation was done in just a few hours and when the inspector came form the city he said the work was flawless, which did not surprise me.

If you are looking to go solar, Unicity Solar is who you need to talk to.

"Professional, honest, fast, quality"
Reviewed Jul 07, 2019

Unicity installed my system back in March. They were professional, organized, honest, and willing to work with me and my needs. I am someone who likes to know exactly what I’m getting into so I had done my fair share of research and received 4 other quotes, including Tesla, and knew exactly what I wanted, size of system, type of panels etc.. So, before I met with Unicity I was anticipating a much larger system and thus a much larger cost. Low and behold, they came to me with a smaller and lower cost system, but with the Panasonic panels that I wanted, so I wasn’t sacrificing quality. At first I thought “no way, this can’t be right, something weird is going on.” Why the hell would they try to talk me into a smaller system with some replaced appliances at a lower cost when compared to the larger more expensive system I thought I needed”. They explained to me the benefit of their approach of making a home more energy efficient upfront to reduce the size of the system on the back end and how that can reduce your overall system costs. I was so impressed with their honesty and integrity that this ended up being my deciding factor on choosing to go with them. So, as I said, I do my fair share of research and I had received other quotes so after I signed with Unicity I was anticipating a few months until I was going to have them install my system.... Nope, like 2 weeks later and they were on my roof and had my system completely installed in half of a day. Now they had done their part and I was just waiting on the power company. They could have easily just wiped their hands and been done with me since “their part” was done, nope again, they would call the power company just about every other day to push the power company into getting the net meter installed and Unicity eiuld would keep me in the loop with status updates. I also called the power company once myself and they provided me with an update and also let me know that Unicity had been in frequent contact with them as well. Again, Unicity pulled through and in just a week or two later I had my net meter installed and I was up and running! I had some friends that were waiting MONTHS for their net meter install so I was super impressed. Since the install I have had fantastic performance from my system, absolutely NO LEAKS in my roof (I’ve been in my attic and checked myself) and the monitoring app that I got with my inverters is pretty cool as well, but I would recommend getting the “Sense Monitoring App” so you can see your real time usage and production. I would 100% recommend Unicity and would choose them 100 times over if I had to do it again.

"Good Job"

They installed 32 panels with Enphase micro inverters on my home. I am happy with the whole process and my system is producing more power than they guaranteed, which is refreshing. This is a very good company and I recommend them to anyone looking to go solar. Their pricing was very good as well. I'm glad I found them and chose them to do my job.

"Love my solar!"
Reviewed Jun 26, 2019

Unicity was great from beginning to end. Our solar panels have been on for about 5 months now and we haven't had a power bill higher than $10! Factoring in our $10 bill plus the solar loan, we are saving about 30% compared to what our electricity costs were prior to going solar, which is what they told us to expect. We are very happy we went solar with Unicity.

"Great Solar Provider"

Great solar provider. I did a lot of research and wanted the best technology available. Unicity was the only company I found that sources the highest quality materials as a standard where most companies I spoke to only gave me the "option" to use better materials. Why should that be an option instead of a standard?

"Light years ahead of the rest!"
Reviewed Jun 11, 2019

Unicity is light years ahead of the rest! I had been thinking about solar for the last year and when I saw them putting panels on my neighbors house I decided to stop by and see how it was going. I was very impressed with what I saw and decided to schedule them to come to my home and see what they could do for me.

Prior to meeting with them, I called a couple of other companies in my area just to have a couple of extra opinions and options. I am still surprised how different my experience was with Unicity compared to the others. The other companies sent representatives to my home that barely listened to my concerns, they just jotted some numbers down on a piece of paper and tried to convince me that I needed to go solar with them because they had "special deals". I felt like I was talking to a "snake oil" salesman. It was so bad that I doubted my whole interest in solar and almost cancelled my appointment with Unicity because I didn't want to endure another 3 hour long ordeal with an annoying sales rep. Knowing my neighbor had a good experience, I kept my appointment with them and I am VERY glad I did.

Unicity's representative "Shak" arrived and was very professional and made me feel very comfortable with everything right from the get-go. He actually listened to me and addressed any of my concerns before ever going in to detail about their offer. When it came time to discuss their system, he presented me with a very detailed quote that showed me all of the details of the components, where the panels would go on my home, and a full breakdown of the financial aspect of going solar. I was blown away. What's even more impressive to me is they had the lowest quote with the best financing and premium equipment. The other companies tried to sell me on what they were selling, whereas Shak's system sold itself with just a basic google search of the components. He never tried to pressure me to "sign today", but I still did, all on my own accord.

The company picked up right where Shak left off. They kept me informed, got my job done quickly and the install crew was great. They showed up in a big Unicity truck and got everything done in about 6 hours.

If you're looking at getting solar panels, I suggest you add Unicity to the list of companies that you're speaking to. I can attest that they do not disappoint!

Unicity is great at every turn! It seems like they've got some very good people working for this company.

Matt at Unicity Solar Energy made everything easy! My install went smoothly, and my panels look great! They were able to put all my panels on the back side of my house. I chose Unicity for several reasons, but one was that they are family owned and local. Unicity offered the best pricing (by far) and the best warranties. I didn't use their financing (went with a home equity line of credit) but Matt explained that option very well. Also was interested in changing out my hot water tank (to hybrid) and my pool pump (to variable speed) - and Matt took care of all that as well. Looking forward to seeing the savings!

"Best in the business"
Reviewed Jun 06, 2019

If you're on the fence about solar, read my review of this company!

I'm not the type to leave reviews, but my experience with Unicity Solar was beyond what I consider "normal" and it seems that their other customers agree based on their other reviews.

I was lucky enough to get to work with Matt, who is the owner, at the beginning of my process. He told me he works with a lot of customers that are near their office in Tarpon Springs and I find that very noble of any business owner to still enjoy meeting with prospective customers and making sure they have a great experience.

I had met with a couple of other companies, one national company and 2 local "smaller" companies, and I can say without a doubt Matt has built a company that perfectly blends the positives of both types of business models in to one. I got the "family" feeling from the local company aspect, and I got a no frills, very thorough proposal from them with a complete understanding of what would happen, $0 down financing with a national lender and the best materials in the industry. Something else I also find to be extremely rare with local companies is not using subcontractors, which Unicity does not do. His crew showed up in a brand new Unicity branded box truck with 4 crew members that all matched and had awesome, cheerful attitudes.

The other companies I met with all told me it would take anywhere from 16-20 weeks before I could expect to be installed. When Matt assured me it would be done within 4 weeks, I honestly didn't know if I believed him. He said they have an in-house process for getting engineering and permitting done very quickly, so I was optimistic it could actually be done that fast. To my surprise, their project coordinator called me 2 weeks after signing the contract and stated they would have my permit that week and wanted to schedule me for the following week (This would put it in the third week).

The installation went seamless and I can't believe how clean everything looks. I have nothing else to compare it to since I've never had solar before, but I have no doubt their work is second-to-none. The building inspector told me he inspects a lot of Unicity's work and it is the best solar work he sees and he's never had any problems.

My new meter was put on by Duke about 3 weeks after the inspection (which apparently this is the standard time frame). It's funny that Unicity installed my system in the same amount of time it took Duke to come put the new meter on. Since the new meter has been working my electric bills have been under $10 every month just like Matt said they would be and I have already registered extra credits with Duke.

From start-to-finish I have been thoroughly impressed by Matt and the whole team at Unicity.

Unicity installed 32 panels on my roof and I am very happy with the entire process.

I highly recommend Unicity if you are thinking of going solar.

Reviewed May 08, 2019

Matt came out to our house personally and did our site evaluation. He found some issues with our roof and refused to let us proceed until we fixed the problems. It says a lot about someone when they won’t take your money because they know what’s best for you as a client. He treated us like family and never pressured us into doing something that wasn’t right for us. Here’s the best part, he was spot on. A good friend of ours is a roofer and he told us if we would have put solar on our house without fixing the messed up patch job first, our roof would have definitely leaked. Needless to say, we signed up with Unicity and Matt and his team are pulling our solar permit now. I will check back in with an update after the job is installed but I couldn’t wait to post this 5 star review. Thank you Unicity!

"Go Solar in 2019!"
Reviewed Dec 31, 2018

If you haven’t gone solar, I recommend going solar for 2019. It cuts back on your energy savings, basically meaning that the solar eventually ends up paying for itself. It’s an investment to lessen the cost on your utilities, but also increase the property value and curb appeal of your home.

It’s a win, win scenario as the buyer. It has drastically lowered my energy expenses, making it a valuable investment. I was apprehensive about going solar at first until I sat down and did my research. I’m really happy I took the time to formulate my own opinion about solar. It has been well worth it.
