  • "A shared journey!"

    Reviewed May 14, 2022

    In early 2021 I became more concerned about the things happening in this world and began thinking about becoming more self reliant. I started kicking some ideas around and solar energy came I really did not know much about solar energy so I began to research online. Once I decided this could be a viable option I started researching local solar energy companies feeling strongly that dealing locally is more times than not the best option. I reached out to Southern Exposure Solar at the beginning of October and met Grayson Goodstein and the six month journey began.
    Grayson was very professional and never put any pressure on me in regards to making a purchase. All question were answered as we walked through the process. From the first time we met I knew that I was dealing with a man and a company that was built on integrity. The installation was done very professionally and looks great. They truly want you to be happy and satisfied. I received my first Dominion Power bill the other day and the reduction in usage and cost was right on target for the system that I purchased.
    Thanks Southern Exposure Solar

  • "Southern Exposure Solar was GREAT!"

    Reviewed Apr 06, 2022

    We used Southern Exposure Solar to install our solar panels/system and could not be happier. Grayson Goodstein was our point of contact with the company. He was very patient explaining everything to us. Southern Exposure did all the paperwork for us. This included the application to our HOA, Dominion Energy (our electric company) and SPECTrade for our rebates for electricity generated. We also learned about the federal tax rebate which was a nice benefit.

    Everyone we have dealt with at Southern Exposure has been so helpful and willing to do anything they could to help. The fellows who did the actual installation were happy to tell us what everything was and what they were doing along the way, so we feel very comfortable with the system. We could not have asked for a better experience.
    We are currently generating excess energy during the summer months to use during the upcoming winter period which is great. With zero net monthly usage we now have electric bills of around $7.00/month which are just the taxes and fees from Dominion
    We had interviewed three solar companies and went with Southern Exposure. So glad we did!

  • "Top Notch Customer service"

    Reviewed Dec 01, 2021

    Southern Exposure Solar (SES) epitomizes the Customer Service experience. It’s a sad reality when you realize how euphoric receiving great Customer Service is because of how infrequent that experience occurs.

    You can tell that SES is led by a group of consummate professionals who are concentrated on perfecting their craft in an select market. As people who interpret processes through a “project management” spectrum, my wife and I truly appreciated how they took us behind the curtain and educated us on some of the nuances associated with the comprehensive logistics effort, which enabled us to understand the Return on Investment.

    Additionally, SES allowed us to take our time in making a decision rather than the typical pressure-driven sales tactic (which drove us away from some of the aggressive, questionable competitors); they even encouraged us to research the competition and notify them of any questions or concerns that we may have.

    The cherries on top (yes, there’s more than one) were the character, transparency, attention to detail, and the fact that the entire project is under one roof, meaning that the industry leading all-inclusive warranty is backed by the product manufacturer, so there is no middle-man obstruction if a problem does arise.

    With SES, you get peace of mind; from my perspective, they are highly recommended with 6 out of 5 stars….yup, you read that correctly!
