Solar working well

Adam at Watts Up was super helpful, including a referral to a roofing company that gave us the best quote by far and did a fine job (we wanted to put a new roof on before putting up the solar). Really appreciated that! Our house was built in the 1940s, and being a bit older, caused some challenges that resulted in additional site visits. Adam and Watts Up persisted, and the final install is neat and tidy. I am very happy with all of the work and assistance Adam and Co provided. Highly recommend! I waited a few months (now five) before writing this review so I could speak to how the solar is performing, and happy to say it is meeting expectation. Presently it appears ROI will be in 10.5-11 years, which is a bit more than the 9.3 estimated by Energy Sage, but there are still many uncertainties and I would be very happy with 11 years!

Happy customer!

All of the other solar installers had a very cookie-cutter approach and similar designs with widely variable price estimates. It was clear they wanted to get in and get out with the simplest design to maximize their return. Adam’s design improved upon all the others using proven, durable tech and cost came in at the lower end of all the other estimates while he delivered almost 50% more power. He also provided generator installation for back up power and an electric car charger for future EV. His engineering background and mind gives him an advantage over all the other salesmen representing the hordes of other solar companies currently flooding the market. If you’ve already had other bids, talk with Adam first and I bet you go with Watts Up. His crew are also hardworking and just good people.

Personal touch from start to finish.

Adam is the person who I spoke with about my project from the start. They came on-site and not only oversaw but worked hands-on to completion. They kept in touch with all the moving pieces of the electric company and addressed my other needs. As a former trade member, I would not choose anyone else. Get other quotes from sales reps and predatory loans that cost you more than save with other places. Adam focuses on the cost to you and the actual evidence. They are up to date on the latest news affecting your Tax Credit and more.

First Conversation with Adam at Watts Engineering

After becoming a registered member of Energy Sage and acquiring 2 quotes, I began to seriously consider all the information at hand. It was a selling point that I could talk first hand with an engineer at Watts Engineering after deciding their quote most appealed to me. I called and was immediately in conversation with Adam, who answered all of my questions and gave me confidence his company could provide the quality of service and end result my wife and I are seeking. The fact they are a local company doing all the work, have all supplies on inventory, have installed over 1000 systems, have a string-inverter system (one stand alone inverter vs. one inverter in each panel), provided a thorough, realistic and prompt guaranteed quote, good for 30 days, and that they have what I believe is a knowledge base to best serve us in the installation and service of their system ... all contribute to our decision to contract with them.

Solar Panel Home Install

Adam did a great job working with us on the installation. He did a good job explaining the quote and what was included and what wasn't. He did a good job walking us through the process and spent a good amount of time explaining everything. There were some hiccups with the utility, but Adam kept us in the loop and all of those were things outside his control. It was nice to have Watts Up manage all the paperwork and communication with the Utility.

Great solar set up and entire process

I am completely satisfied with the entire process from initial consultation through to the solar system going live. Adam was very responsive to all of my questions and very patiently explained the differences between our choices. I would (and have) recommended his services to friends and colleagues.
