Ameco Solar - Profile & Reviews

At AMECO Solar, we do not believe solar installations are a commodity. Rather, it is an installation which requires skilled roofing and electrical labor. The difference between AMECO Solar and our competitors is that we are a construction-first company, not a sales-first company. This means that the majority of our employees are actual solar installers - not sales people.

    We signed a contract with Ameco Back In January 2020. We had the panels installed for us at the end of February by a wonderful crew headed by Marvin. The entire team including the office staff were a pleasure to work with and they really delivered on everything our sales rep promised. Now 2 months after having the solar turned on we have a negative bill! I will be reccomending Ameco to whomever asks about our panels.

    I signed a solar panel installation contract with Ameco Solar in the end of October 2019. According to the contract Ameco had to get all permits and approvals by the mid of December 2019. I planned to install panels by the end of 2019 to get 30% of the Federal incentive. Whole November I emailed them asking if everything is fine and smooth. I did that because I did not feel any activities. Often they did not reply, but when they did they confirmed that everything is good and no reasons not to have panels installed by the end of 2019. In the mid of December when they passed a deadline I asked them again. It turned out that they forgot that I live in HOA area and they have to get an approval from HOA. Also it turned out that they didn't have a city approval. They started promised me that very very soon it will be ready. It was clear for all of us that panels won't be installed in 2019 at least because there was no chance to get HOA approval in Christmas period. I asked them in the end of 2019 that due to the contract breach I want to break the contract and please return my $1000 deposit. And even at that moment (2 weeks after the deadline) they did not get the city approval. They said that since they did some job (drawings) they can't return me my deposit even in case of they breached the contract! I prepared documents to file a small claim and in the end of the January they informed me that they got all approvals, let's proceed. The end of the January, 7 weeks later!!! They had a few attempts to submit drawings but looks like the city returned them papers, though my project is super simple. Right at this moment I notified them that I will sew them and only that helped to get my $1000 back. Amazing! Everyone can fail, but after you failed you can still try to resolve a conflict well. But not Ameco Solar! No one can return me my my time and loss of 4% Federal incentive difference.

AMECO Solar has been doing solar since 1974. Our founder, Patrick Redgate, helped to write the test questions for the original C-46 License. Our head installer has been doing solar PV for 10+ years - more than most of our competitors have even been in business.

We are not high-volume installers who subcontract work. We do not have high-pressure time constraints to rush installs to meet our quotas. We take pride in each and every installation, and do things right the first time.
