Installation of 42 panel system with battery backup.

We hired Roy to install a 42 panel system with battery backup and connect us to the grid in the Fall of 2021. It has worked very well for us, we have not paid for any electric since March of 2022 ( it is now July 2023) and never know when others are experiencing a power outage. I am thinking about having him to install a system for another house we purchased.

Very Satisfied

Had an existing 20kw grid tie. My original installers balked at my wanting to add batteries afterwards. Then I saw an installation of a friends done by scharf electric and was very impressed. I called scharf electric and reworking my older system to accommodate adding batteries and more panels was no problem. they even wired my existing standby diesel generator to come on to charge the batteries in extended low light weather conditions, automatically. Very happy with the latest technology of the equipment that was used. The feeling of total energy security for my property is calming in this crazy world and scharf electric did it for us.

Great install experience

Roy and team did a wonderful job installing our system. The system was designed to our needs with clear pricing, unlike the larger installers who seemed to have little flexibility beyond their preferred brand. The crew was neat and respectful. Everything works as planned and Roy was very patient as we waited for Duquesne Light to get through the review process and install the new meter. Highly recommended!

Solar Panels done Right

Roy is the beginning and end to all solar needs, he installed our system in a timely manner, answers all questions and after 4 years of post install Roy still takes our calls, want to say we have not had any problems he a source of information and I can’t see anyone else giving attention to their customers like this. When 3G went to 5 G he showed up and once more made the process easy and as always made sure we had the knowledge we needed. All roads in solar leads to Roy.
