Hello from myself and the team at Wolf River Electric. My name is Seth, I am a solar specialist and sales professional at WRE. I have been with the company for just shy of 5 years. We are a full service electric company located in Isanti, Minnesota, that specializes in solar installation. Our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction has made us the second largest solar company in Minnesota and the fourth largest solar company in the Midwest all while primarily focusing on residential solar.

Here at Wolf River, we specialize in commercial and residential electric, lighting, and solar panel systems. Inside our solar division, we have our own designers and engineers to make your vision come to reality, and at the end of the day your satisfaction is our top priority. This is why every project we do is custom to the customer. Everyone has different needs, that is why we don't believe in a one size fits all solar project that you might see from another company.

We have completed hundreds of installations all over Minnesota, with most of these projects being ours, but out-of-state solar companies will often reach out to have us do their installations, simply because of the level of service we provide. If you decide to go with an out-of-state installer, chances are you will get us, you just won't get the level of customer service we provide, as we will become the middleman between you and the competing solar company.

Through this process we have gained strong partnerships with solar equipment providers such as REC, LG, Enphase, Solar Edge, Sunpower, Silfab, and many more. These companies often give us promotional deals to get our customers better products at a better price.

Currently, REC is running a promotion for any customer that moves forward within a week of the submitted proposal, they will receive a free upgrade to premium REC Pure Black Alpha 400w panels. Save thousands on this upgrade that REC will provide at no cost to you.

Downhill During Project

Edit: They got back to me very quickly after my review. People will be out tomorrow to get my system up and running. Will edit with results. ======== I rotated through 4 different project managers during my install and they maybe 2 of them ever got back to me after the first week of taking over my project. My panels were installed at the end of 2021 and finally generating power in September of 2022, but some of my panels were barely producing in direct sunlight. I was told by my 3rd project manager that there is an issue with the inverter and it needs to be replaced, but it's going to take some time to get. Well, it's what has to be done, so sure. Eventually the new inverter was installed and my project manager disappeared until I got an email from my 4th project manager who was ready to push me across the finish line! We'll, pushing me across the finish line involved tying up paperwork and never actually checking to see if I was generating anything. When I talked to the project manager, he claimed I probably just needed to ensure moy monitoring app is connected to the new inverter. Long story short, I confirmed the inverter was not seeing any power even though my panels were seeing sun. Now I've been assured Wolf River will reach out to me, but that was last week. I don't know what happened, but this is no longer a reliable company.

Love our solar panels

They did a great job and we have recommended them to many of our neighbors!

Great company and fast install!

Wolf river did my solar panel installs. I was recommended to them by a friend and was very happy I went with them. The project manager we worked with was quick to respond and made sure any of our questions were addressed. I’m very happy with the work and will recommend them again to friends of mine. Also very happy at the money well save in the long run! Great owners and loved supporting a local company.

Good start but unable to deliver

If you’re a prospective customer, I’d strongly recommend holding off on giving WRE your business at this time. If you already have signed a contract but work hasn’t started take lots of “before videos and photos”, make sure you understand what you’ve bought, and re-read your contract terms around warranties. They seem to have a tough time giving their field crews and PMs the resources needed to succeed after the sale is made and design submitted for the interconnect agreement. - their estimator is also their scheduler who, understandably, is prioritizing new work so our punch issues keep getting pushed out. - our first PM was let go shortly after we reported leaks and expressed concern around lack of progress towards a resolution - crews have showed up without necessary tools, materials, or info from office on planned work. We had to lend them our ladders and show them issues that weren’t shared by office. - we’re lucky to get 3 days notice of a crew coming out which isn’t always sufficient. Two times they tried to schedule us we had conflicts due to vacations and medical issues. - we’ve had roof leaks due to bad seals at missed anchors and junction boxes since at least December 2022 that haven’t been resolved or scheduled. - our panels likely weren’t wired according to design so breaker trips and now we’re producing much less than anticipated. Issue has been open since mid February. - we still haven’t passed our final electrical inspection for the service panel upgrade done in November 2022 - while they are receptive and generally communicative via emails and phone calls it’s mostly reactive and due to us calling asking for updates. The silver lining is WRE’s roof and installer warranty is pretty iron clad so while it is annoying to have a system operating at less than 50% and active roof leaks at least we’re not on the hook financially. I hope they are able to turn it around and continue installing high quality Enphase systems as I would love to be able to update this again saying it all turned out okay. Until then… I’m just hoping we can get on the schedule soon. Overall, wouldn’t recommend WRE at this time for solar or residential electrical work due to issues coordinating and sharing information between office and field. The sales and design process was straightforward though.
