So Very Pleased!

We had our solar system installed in the Spring of 2023 by Advanced Electric and Solar and I would (and have already) recommend them, with much enthusiasm, to friends and family—and even to people who I meet on the street. They are an exceptionally good company and I was very pleased with every aspect of the service and the product that they provided. The customer service shown by Joe set the standard for what one would hope for in an organization as he was knowledgeable, responded quickly to inquiries, was patient and took the time to explain the many aspects of the process of installing solar. The quality of workmanship was top-notch and the highest levels of professionalism were shown. I soon felt confident about putting solar up on our roof. I am super happy about our investment in solar, and the results/savings have been more than what I had hoped for. (At the risk of bragging, our first “full-month” of having a Solar panels resulted in an electric bill for April that was only 81 cents!.) I love the fact that there is a website that monitors my panels and shows what they are generating. The website also shares info about how these savings are positively impacting the environment—which was an additional motivation for my choosing solar. My highest accolades and praise go out to Advanced Electric. I am really glad that we chose them.

Great Value and Great Service

Joe and his team did a great job, and I am very happy with the quote process, installation, and follow-up I experienced. I held off writing a review until it had been running for a bit so that I could comment on whether it was working as expected and how I felt about the system after having used it for some time. The system has been installed and operational for several months and has had zero problems. When we first met to discuss his price quote, Joe answered all my questions about the cost, the installation schedule, and support. When I came up with a few more questions while evaluating his price quote against others, he quickly responded with knowledgeable answers. The installation was conducted in a few stages and was on schedule, even getting ahead of schedule several times. Each time they were at my house -- staging, installing, inspection, wrap-up -- Joe kept me apprised of exactly what to expect, checked in and out each time, and always completely cleaned up at the end of the day. The system was turned on, and we've had no issues producing energy at the expected, calculated level since then. The system is easy to monitor via an app; the app is easy to use, and Joe ensured it was set up correctly on day one. Their quote was slightly higher (about 2%), but I went with them because I had a sense of the better overall quality of experience and value. My thoughts since then have not changed. I would recommend this company without any hesitation.

Going Solar

When we first started investigating solar power, we knew nothing except that “going solar” was probably a good idea and that we should try to learn more. We learned a lot more from Joe Alitiem of Advanced Electric and Solar. He led us through all the technical details as well as the financial implications of installing a solar array, including the many tax benefits, all later confirmed by our accountant. He was very “hands on” throughout the installation process and stayed with us until well after our system was up and running. Our praise for Joe Alitiem and Advanced Electric and Solar could not be higher. Donna and Wayne from Tucson

Excellent quality materials and installation services

6/6/22 Just a quick update on my review from 3 years ago: the system's been operating flawlessly for the past three years and in fact we haven't had an electric bill for over a year and a half! Right now we have a $353 credit with TEP and we couldn't be happier. Not sure if new customers can get in with the same sort of arrangement we have with the utility but hopefully it would be nearly as good. Joe with Advanced gave us a very reasonable bid for a nearly 12 kW system and he was excellent to work with. They are a highly professional company with competent and courteous installers. Our project was a difficult one with an 80-year old clay tile roof but Advanced rose to the challenge and executed the installation perfectly. Advanced also uses the highest-quality materials and products especially suited for our hot and high-UV intensity environment, so make sure when you get bids that other installers offer the best quality and toughest materials to be able to compare with Advanced. Overall, we’re quite satisfied and looking forward to having 100 percent of our electricity provided through solar.

Well satisfied

Just wanted to drop a short note about Joe Alitiem and crew. Joe (a straight shooter), presented a plan in ways we could understand, and answered all our questions. His efforts were timely and as planned, and he and the crew provided strong attention to detail, and fully satisfied my wife and I. The system is up and running and working great. We have nothing but high marks for the entire operation. Thanks Joe and crew!
