  • "Glad I went solar"

    Reviewed Sep 28, 2020

    From Leanne, David, Catherine, installers and everyone else who helped with our solar project big thanks to you guys. We been wanting to do solar for awhile and finally got the chance to pull forward with the idea. We got a 8.3 kw system with 24 LG solar panels and the latest Enphase microinverters. Everything went smooth from the installation to getting the permits approved. Forme Solar had great customer service.

  • "Pretty satisfied"

    Reviewed Sep 08, 2020

    We had been shopping around and we liked the deal that we were able to get with Forme. We like that we produce our own energy. I just wish I will have the opportunity to install the battery system next year so that if the power goes down, we won't have our power go out. Since we're generating power without a battery, it's tied to the grid. Overall, we've been pretty satisfied.

    First Mark and his crew were very informative about the work that was needed to be done. They were very professional in their work. The office staff were very helpful answering any questions I had about the project and keeping me updated. Would definitely recommend for home solar panels.

  • "Quality installation"

    Reviewed Aug 23, 2020

    Did a lot of research before I started the process into getting solar for my home. Found 6 companies with great reviews, great warranties, and prices. After speaking with all of them, I finally settled on Forme Solar because they seemed to deliver quality. All the equipment everyone offered seemed fairly similar.

    Despite the insane heat, the team was able to finish installing the panels this month and helped me get set up with Edison. They worked through the entire process without any issue. Love the look of my new panels and can’t wait to start seeing the savings from solar.

    Wanted to give a huge shout out to Nick who helped coordinate everything and made sure going solar was a smooth process. Was available to answer any questions any hour of the day.

    They customized a solar system for ME! Bobby was the sales rep and he was very helpful. He helped answer my questions and went into the pros and cons of a microinverter vs optimizer system.

    Took a few weeks for the permits but the installation and PTO was completed quickly. We didn’t have any problems with the inspection and was able to talk to one of the installers about his experience.

    From Bobby to David the entire team was helpful. If you’re thinking about going solar, give ForME a call. Everything was done FOR ME.

    Forme installed a 5kwh solar panel system for my home in Santa Clarita.

    After I signed the contract, they had someone come by to take measurements. I was able to see the final design and they took care of the permits. The team installed the panels in one day while not interrupting me as I worked. They were right on time at 8am. They didn’t use subs, which made me feel better about my decision. Couple of days later the inspectors came and installed a new meter.

    So far so good!

    "Great solar company, free EV charger installation!"

    Reviewed Aug 08, 2020

    It took me a few months to research and evaluate solar quotes for my house. The hardest part was trying to narrow down which installer to go with. It was not so much about lowest cost wins the deal but the skill of the installation. So I probably had 5 to 7 estimates with the top local installers in Los Angeles. I met with David from Forme Solar and what really impressed me was how they focused less on equipment and more on the skill of their installation team. Exactly what I was looking for. Another thing that stood out was their extensive labor warranty of 25 years. Other solar companies only provided and matched equipment warranties.

    Installation went smoothly and their communication was a key factor of my 5 star review. As the project progressed, they were providing updates on a regular basis. The city inspection had no hiccups and we passed.

    And I got free EV charger installed for my Tesla.

    I highly recommend this company.

    The folks at Forme Solar are just total pros. From the time I called in to get information about pricing all the way through to activation, Leanne and her people were super responsive, straightforward, and even spent time explaining why going with a higher rate for me solar loan would save me thousands in fees. This company is very transparent and forthcoming with information. Not once did I get a phone call to ask me if I was ready to make a decision. Instead, they promptly responded to my questions (even at 11 PM), gave fantastic detailed explanations, and never bothered me with soft close techniques.

    Seriously speaking, this was one of the best sales experiences I ever had where I felt I was being treated like an adult rather than some ignorant person who constantly needed to hear about all the bells, whistles, and features. They got the solar permit within 10 days of me signing the contract, installed in one day, passed inspection the next day, and got me activated with SCE a week and a half later. I got no words. This was easier than my re-roof!

    After reading numerous reviews, I picked the best 4 solar companies I wanted to consider. Their proposals were all fairly close, the most expensive one being about $5k more than the cheapest.

    With the COVID19 lockdown, I realized that it was time to get solar. So I did a lot of research and analyzed 10 solar companies and their proposals. I'm in the service industry so all aspects were important to me: QUALITY, WARRANTY, PRICE, and CUSTOMER SERVICE. After two weeks to get all of the proposals, I decided to go with Forme Solar. They took one day to send me back a proposal, others took more than a week! It should have been fairly straight forward since I asked them all to quote the same system and products. I understand how you want to be thorough but being responsive and timely is also high up on my list of priorities. I ended up going with Forme Solar because 1) They were the 3rd lowest price. About 10% more than the lowest quote 2) The quality of the salesman and engineer was fantastic. The way that their installer bent conduit and installed the system was also top notch 3) I wanted the best equipment and knew exactly what panels, inverters and batteries I wanted. and they were able to provide them. Other companies tried to sell me on other brands but I asked for LG panels, enphase microinverters, and a Tesla Powerwall and they gave me exactly what I requested. 4) They provided the best warranties. Covering the equipment, labor and even performance 5) Service was top notch. They arrived on time, and kept me updated throughout the job 6) Company has a ton of experience in solar repair which comforts me knowing that they could fix the problem if I ever had issues and could last during a recession. I can tell a great job when I see it and I am confident on the quality of the job that they performed. Wouldn't hesitate to refer them to others.

    Forme Solar was the company we ended up selecting after meeting with 6 other companies.

    It took a while to finally decide on a solar installer and why Forme Solar was the best option since it almost felt like comparing apples to oranges. After the 5th proposal, I realized that no two solar system proposals were alike. The placement, cost, and size varied a lot, so I figured that I would have to standardize the system and cost. I used an 8.72kwh system as my baseline and figured a range of $24k - $31k for the same sized system. When I factored in financing the system, which ranged from 3% - 9%, I was able to narrow down my choices to Forme Solar. With their cost and financing, they provided terms that the others couldn’t beat.

    They recommended all black panels from Q Cells. Love the look of the panels and seeing how much my solar panels are producing via the app.

    Would recommend Forme Solar. Great customer experience.

    After receiving and comparing 5 proposals from different solar companies we picked Orme Solar. We compared everything from price, recommended system size, licenses, location, install experience, and reputation.

    My hesitation with Orme Solar was that the recommended system size was on the larger side and their experience. But after speaking with Nick, and seeing their work I could see how their experience speaks for itself. Thinking back, we are glad that we went with the larger size since we know that our usage is only going to go up in the future. I’m even starting to regret not getting a bigger size!

    We highly recommend Orme Solar from how they originally designed the system to the quality of how they installed our solar panel system. They did great work for us. Their prices and the scope of products they could offer were the best we saw and they were always accessible.

    After waiting years for solar panels to become more efficient and affordable, I finally settled on Orme Solar to set up a solar energy system for our newly renovated home. It came after months of getting quotes, reading reviews and speaking with friends. I must say this decision to go solar has been the best investment for my home that I have ever made. It is the one home upgrade that I’ve done that I know will pay itself back.

    The Orme Solar reps took us through the whole process from estimating our generating needs (2 electric vehicles, a pool and outdoor entertainment) to mapping out our panels to maximize the sun exposure, to installing our panels and registering our panels with the electric company. Terry, the customer service manager, responded to our questions and called us promptly and kept us informed during the whole process. He introduced us to an app where we can monitor our daily, monthly and cumulative energy generated by the system at the touch of a few buttons on my phone. We are now generating more electricity than we use and this will allow us to expand our electricity needs in the future. The monthly cost of our solar loan is significantly less than our previous electrical bill, with a bit of room to use even more as well. Best part is, in several years we will start saving hundreds of dollars monthly.

    We are very pleased with our purchase and with Orme Solar.

    Reviewed Jan 27, 2020

    Installation was completed in one day! LOVE my new solar system! Nick at Orme Solar made sure that the job went smoothly, and that the system looked good! He went above and beyond the call of duty, providing white glove quality service. So very pleased - no money out of pocket - just my monthly predictable electric bill which is 32% less than my current SCE bill! I find that to be a win/win. My biggest hesitation going solar was dealing w/ the sales team and solar panel installation process. With Orme Solar, all of those elements went smoothly. I cannot believe I waited this long to go solar. I've gotten multiple quotes, but would highly encourage you to check them out, www.ormesolar.com for your solar panel system design and quote. I wasn't disappointed.

    They weren't the cheapest but they were definitely the most polished and installed the solar panels well.

    Reviewed Jan 20, 2020

    I used to work in construction, so I can be very fussy when it comes to hiring contractors. I know the difference between a decent job and a great one. From start to finish, I was impressed with Orme Solar from the way they communicated to how they executed. They did a comprehensive review of my roof and found some problems that I hadn't discovered. They then provided a professional estimate and proposal with multiple options around quality and price. Just a reroof, or reroof plus solar. I decided to bundle in solar with the roofing because I could bundle together the tax credit, and they offered roofing materials that were made to work well together - rather than piece together a solution only using the cheapest materials. I knew that I was getting quality with how they spoke about how to bundle together the roofing with solar, the aesthetics and the cost difference. Once we settled on the right type of materials for our roof and solar, they scheduled the job quickly. On the scheduled day, they arrived on time and completed the entire roofing work and solar installation in one day. They also improved the ventilation, properly vented the bathroom fans, replaced any rotten deck and fascia boards, and sealed and caulked well. At cleanup they picked up every spec of debris. They went over the entire yard...twice, picking up stray nails, trash, and scrap materials. You couldn't even tell that they had been there.

    I wouldn't call anyone else for solar installation or reroof. They did a great job at a reasonable price.

    I typically don’t write reviews unless the experience is great or absolutely terrible.
    Initially it started a little rocky, I don’t think anyone really enjoys the sales process but glad I picked Orme Solar.

    They were super responsive and on top of any delays that occurred. I didn’t expect things to go perfectly, so I appreciated that I picked a company who made sure to keep me updated with changes regarding the inspection, and installation schedule.

    They were a professional company which is hard to find in the services industry. Would recommend them to others, hopefully they can skip the sales process. :) that part, I wouldn’t wish on even my worst enemy.

    The Orme solar team was absolutely fantastic. They got all 37 of our solar panels on our roof in a day! Talked to a coworker who also went solar, and how they've ran into delays because their installers kept pushing back the install and missed inspection. Didn't think that the solar installer would matter that much, but glad we found Orme! We couldn’t have asked for a better install.

    Got a few quotes from Energysage. Started off by eliminating the ones with poor reviews, and high costs and after speaking to all of them we found that Orme Solar was just right. We went through the solar process in October and were able to activate our system in time to quality for the 30% rebate. So far everything has worked in the exact way that Jack described during the process. I was happy that they delivered on their promises from the cost to timeline. Excited to see how going solar will impact my electric bill and when I could expect a payback. Their installers were friendly and professional.

    They made the whole process very easy and even gave me the necessary tax documents to get my 30% tax credit.

    Our system was just activated! We looked on Yelp at a few different solar installers near us. We ended up picking Orme Solar to put LG solar panels on our roof. We had an upfront cost that allows us to breakeven after 6 years. Afterwards, no electricity bills! Happy we went with Orme Solar, they gave me a detailed proposal telling me what equipment they were installing, how much it would cost, impact on my electric bill and when I should expect a payback. The install team was friendly and professional. Appreciated that they took the time to clean up properly as well. They made the whole process very easy and even gave me the necessary tax documents to get my 30% tax credit.

    Searched for a solar installer in Los Angeles that could do a commercial project.
    Went on Yelp and called a few places, and found Orme Solar.

    When it rained in Los Angeles, they made sure to tarp the areas that were being worked on. WIth the recent rain, was able to see their quality of work and loved the fact that we had NO LEAKS!

    They were one of the few installers who could not only install commercial but also specialized in solar and roof repair. It is great to get that peace-of-mind that our installation and future maintenance would be taken care of.

    Love the savings, hate the hype. Researched what it meant to go solar and spoke with various solar companies. I learned two things. 1. Solar companies really range in terms of their knowledge and 2. The promise of solar is overhyped. The full benefits of going solar can't be achieved without a battery option....isn't the idea of solar to automatically charge my home when my power goes out? Quotes including a solar battery just didn’t make enough sense.

    When we finally decided to go solar, we picked Orme due to the combination of knowledge and competitive price. I’m seeing an immediate reduction on my electricity costs. Which is great since I’ll need every penny I can get my hands on to add on a battery backup.

    Would use Orme again when we decide to make that addition.
