Solar panels

We joined a co-op and had solar panels installed on our roof. The work was done efficiently and completely coordinating with our electric company. The workers were knowledgeable and kept the work area clean. We have no complaints.

Great company!

I worked with Tim on our solar purchase. He was able to answer all my questions and helped us through the process. He was always quick to respond as was the team who handled the installation and paperwork. I highly recommend 15 Light Years!

Capable under the right conditions

I'm giving 3 stars to 15 lightyears and 3 stars to myself in the process of installation and ongoing maintenance of the solar array on our house. 15 light years was selected as the installer for the 2019-2020 Orlando Solar Purchasing Cooperative, and offered a great price, and great selection of options for what was available at the time. The area that has caused me ongoing frustration with the solar installation has been the recurrent leaks that have occurred on the side of the roof with the solar array. I take ownership of the fact that my shingle roof likely needed replacement before considering install, but at the time 15 lightyears gave their stamp of approval for installation. What has been disappointing have been the recurrent leaks at points where flashing holding the solar racking have failed due to poor caulking. It felt like 15 lightyears has been quick to point out where my roof was lacking and slow to be proactive in finding connection points that were installed too quickly and poorly during the installation of the system. To 15 lightyears' credit, I have not been charged for any of the service calls during the first 5 years of the arrays life due to the fact that it was still under a workmanship warranty, I just wish that it wasn't necessary to place so many calls in the first place. What's more, I had to be extremely diligent about telling 15 lightyears techs where I suspected the leaks to be coming from. This required crawling into our narrow attic space, pinpointing where I thought the leaks were originating, taking photos, and describing in detail the exact connection points where I perceived the failure to be. I love having solar. I need to replace my roof as a result. My advice would be to have a standing seem metal roof and avoid unnecessary penetrations into your roof. 15 lightyears has claimed that they are doing a better job at disqualifying potential home installs that have older shingle roofs or roofs with a higher likelihood of failure. If you can meet those conditions up front, and the only the only reason you need to call for service is for technical assistance with inverters or the panels themselves, then I think 15 lightyears would be a fine company to work with.

No more electric bill

We got quotes from several solar companies and 15 lightyears as part of a group co-op rate was by far the lowest. We are very pleased with the quality of the panels and with the exception of Duke’s “mandatory fee”, we no longer have an electric bill even though we have a pool, electric vehicles and keep our thermostat at 68 degrees. Note that if you get your roof replaced, and the roofing company replaces the panels it may void parts of the warranty.

Fantastic Solar system experience

15 lightyears did a fantasic job coordinating, communicating, and setting expectations during my install. Everything was explained very well and the installers were very professional. I'd strongly recommend them to anyone interested in solar.

Great experience and product

15 lightyears installed my solar panels a few years ago and did a great job. The whole process was easy and straightforward and the system has worked beautifully since day 1.
