    Reviewed May 09, 2020

    Was impressed with the professionalism and the quality of this company. They installed our system a few months ago but I was suddenly having an issue. Found out a recent power surge blew a fuse. They came by the next day to check on the system and fix the connection. No charge! Was nice to know that I could call them when something went wrong.

    The experience dealing with their sales team and installation team was consistent. But what really impressed me was their support when we had an issue with our solar. Everyone seemed to be on the same page. They were easy to work with and available to answer any questions I had. I’m happy with their service and super happy with our solar. Love the smaller power bills and would highly recommend going solar.

    I wasn't totally sold on the idea of solar power for our home when my husband and I first discussed it. The Forme Solar Electric representatives we're helpful in articulating the benefits and most importantly the costs. Throughout the process they were patient and professional, keeping us updated with any changes. Our installation was delayed until we fixed the roof shingles. They were able to help us with that, which made dealing with the process easier. Now that our solar system is up and running we love seeing the saving. Happy with the system and the customer service we received from Forme.

    Felt safe working with them. Forme Solar was easy to work with and made sure to avoid any unnecessary contact. They were available to answer any questions and provide updates over the phone. I’m happy with their service throughout the solar installation process and super happy with our solar. The smaller bills are really going to go a long way, especially now. I would highly recommend going solar and happy overall with the experience.

    Just got my first electric bill and it was less than $30! We are so excited because we never really cared about our electricity costs before. But right now it feels like every dollar really counts. The timing for the system couldn’t have been better, and just thankful that it is currently on and working.

  • "Professional and Pleasant"

    Reviewed Mar 23, 2020

    We were looking to get solar panels for our home. We contacted a few solar installers initially but ended up going with Force Solar because our conversations with them were pleasant and professional. We also saw some positive ratings online which made our decision even easier. Throughout the process their solar technicians were easy to communicate with. They seemed to do great quality work, caring about the details. Even before they were finished, they told me how they were going to move a few panels because it didn't look quite straight. Appreciate the workmanship.

  • "Looks Matter"

    Reviewed Mar 10, 2020

    Forme Solar was the solar company we picked to install solar panels on our home in Pasadena. They came and installed solar panels on my home yesterday, and it went off without a hitch. They arrived in the morning and finished before lunchtime. The panels and system looks great! Better than I could have imagined. Forme Solar has been great for coordinating all the tasks along the way, including pushing our HOA for their approval, to handling all the paperwork, and scheduling everything necessary to make sure it was completed. Donnee, their solar technician helped make sure that I downloaded the solar monitoring app to see that my solar energy system was working properly. I can now track how much electricity my solar panels are producing. Everything went very smooth and I would highly recommend them based on the installation. The city will review the installation in a week, I hope that we pass the first time. Nick was pretty confident about the installation, but couldn’t promise that we would pass inspection the first time. My expectation is that the system will be activated this month.

  • "Challenging Home"

    Reviewed Mar 04, 2020

    My home is old and so I was debating if I should go solar. I heard that it would present a lot of challenges due to the layout and the condition of our roof. Forme Solar was the only one willing to tackle the challenge at a cost that made sense for us. They got our solar panels installed ahead of schedule and looks amazing compared to the others we have seen.

    Process:
    Everything went smoothly even after the contract was signed. They helped us with our permits, the city inspection and submitting my tax refund. I was constantly kept updated as to when I needed to be home, and the documents I needed to review.

    Glad we ended up going solar, and was satisfied with the solar installation work that Forme Solar did.

    Just got activated to go solar! I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the process and the result. I expected a certain level of service and cost and Forme Solar was able to deliver on both. We got a few quotes from solar companies in Orange County and Forme Solar best matched our price and quality. They helped me design a system that matched my budget and even helped me with submitting the tax credit for solar.

    Happiest Moment: The most dreaded part went smoothly.

    Not a fan of the city inspection. They always find something to fix and drags out the project for weeks. With Forme Solar Electric, we passed inspection the first time! I support others to look at going solar to see how much money you can save and how much of a difference you can make on the environment.

After reviewing 5 estimates of potential solar options based on our energy consumption, we made a financially and environmentally prudent decision and installed 13 solar panels and a SolarEdge inverter. Forme Solar Electric accommodated our schedule for installation, helped us with the solar rebate program, the associated costs of ownership, and handled all of the city permits.

    After my neighbor installed his solar system and starting raving about it, I thought that I would look into it. After a bit of research, consultations after consultations, and a few quotes I ended up going with Forme Solar Electric. They offered a great price, better than my neighbor! They even threw me an EV charger for my tesla 3.

    Once we decided to go with Forme, the process went fairly quickly. I will say it was a bit of a longer process than I thought. There were a few complications that we had to overcome. Dealing with the HOA really extended out the timeframe.

    My neighbor finished his solar installation in 4 months after he got permission from the HOA, mine only took 4 weeks. It feels nice that I was able to reap the benefits of solar much faster. I'm thrilled with how my system is performing and love checking out the production numbers daily.
    Was able to save me 3 months on the installation and was cheaper?! Thanks forme solar electric.

    "Ended up going with Forme Solar. Would recommend them to others"

    Reviewed Feb 26, 2020

    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.

  • "Positive solar experience"

    Reviewed Jan 29, 2020

    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.

  • "Won't be disappointed"

    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.

  • "Quality Service"

    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.

    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.

    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.
