Olson Solar install at our hime

Olson Solar was great throughout the process of evaluating our property, keeping us informed, getting needed permits, installation, and follow-up on teaching us about monitoring our new system, and receiving tax rebates. HIGHLY recommend them!

An Excellent Solar Energy Provider Company

I am very satisfied with all the professional services Olson Solar Energy provided on this project as well as with the Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative who got the system activated promptly after finally receiving the delayed site inspection approval by Adams County. I would highly recommend working with Olson Solar Energy on getting a solar panel system designed and installed on your property and feel free to contact me if you wish to view my site or if I can answer any questions on my system.

This all started in April 2022 we called Olson solar energy to see if solar panels were an option for us. Started out great we told them right from the beginning that we have 3-phase electric and a generator. The salesman reassured us that it would be fine and would be no problem. He proceeded to take pictures of everything. We then got our financing for the project in May. Olson did tell us that it would be a little bit before they would be hooked up. We then proceeded to jump through all these hoops of grants and having to get insurance to protect WPS. Through all this the project manager they assigned to us never seemed to know what he was talking about and took multiple conversations to understand what was required of us. All of this process was minimal but they never gave us a for sure date when the panels were going to go in just that it was going to happen this year. November we finally had the go that they were coming to put the solar panels the week before deer hunting and we were excited. They went in without any huge hitches. Little did we know the problems would all start the following week. They finally sent out the master electrician the week of deer hunting to look at our system and see what was needed. You could see from his expressions that there was a problem but we didn't know how big. We were reassured that the panels would be hooked up by the end of the year. So I called pretty much weekly wondering when this would happen because at this point we had to start our loans and were now paying double since we were making payments on the loans and paying the power company. We were being told that they were waiting on a part and we were on the schedule weekly for whenever it came in. December came and went and in January I called again and got some line that it was cold and that's why they weren't out there and I told them that they had promised to be connected by the end of the year and had all month to do so. Finally were told that they need many more parts because of something that Wps was requiring. I said fine but this better not involve more money on our part and was told it wouldn't, but that was a lie. They came back and told us that we needed to come up with another $10,000 on top of the $63000 we already had for them to get the proper approvals from Wps. I'm sorry but why did they not have the approvals from the system before these panels were put up on our property. And we were upset about it because why on earth did they not have the electrician out right away before these panels were installed. And yes I did raise my voice at them and call them out on this incompetence. They did not like this and just placed all the blame on Wps. But when it comes down to it they should have had an electrician out right away and not guessed that it would work. When it comes down to it we ended up getting another loan for $10000 and were promised there would be no more problems and no more money involved and the system would be up and running when the ground thawed. This brings us up to last week when they emailed me to tell me there were more problems with the wiring on the farm. They gave us the electricians number and we talked to him and to our electrician and found out that this would cost us another $20000 on top of the $10000 we already had. We then called the owner to tell him we were pulling out and he proceeded to try to end the conversation. I told him to hold on a second because I wanted to talk to him about reimbursement on the interest of the loans at this point because this was a total waste of our time. He proceeded to tell me I was nothing but rude and stressed him out and hung up on me. I really think that if my husband had been talking to him that wouldn't have been said but whatever. They then sent an email telling me that they contacted our lender to get our information about our loans and they would be out on Monday to get to the panels and we didn't need to be home to get this done. I'm sorry but what! you think you are entitled to my personal information without permission! I don't think so! And when exactly are you going to give us our money back. This leads up to Monday when they send two guys to come and get the panels with a check. This employee was very nice and was the first on at Olson that actually apologized. To sum up everything, Olson never once took any fault it was all wps's fault and our bills. THEY NEVER APOLOGIZED ONCE! When they came to pick up the panels the owners should have been the ones to bring the check and clear the air. Because when it comes down to it if they would have any of the approvals before they put up the panels we would have solar energy instead of a bunch of empty posts standing up in the pasture. Long story short make sure they get the approval from the power company before they put up anything on your property.

Olsen Solar in Eau Claire

Surprised Olsen's didn't make the top 5 local installers! They were great to work with and installed my system with no effort or headaches on my part. Multiple changes by me durning bidding were cheerfully addressed with updated quotes. 5 stars Paul Zach

Very Professional

Olson Solar did a great job installing our new solar system. Our project manager kept us abreast of the progress every step of the way and made sure we understood everything. All their installers were efficient getting the system installed in just a few hours, and kept our property clean. Now that it's up and running, it's great to see how much clean energy it's producing and sending back to the power grid. I highly recommend Olson Solar Energy if you're looking to add solar to your home or business! Keep in mind this is a process that takes a few months from beginning to end because of all the steps involved. Our system was connected to the grid within the 4 months we were told to expect, and at about a week in service, everything's looking good!
