My solar install just went online about a month ago and I do not anticipate paying another electric bill. The whole process from design to installation went very smoothly. The workmanship & customer service has been fantastic. I would highly recommend SGE.
We contracted with SGE because their sales guy, Dave Simmer, was extremely knowledgable. I had done a good deal of research, but still had some questions and he was able to answer them all, as well as to give us some good advice about sizing the system. They were at parity for pricing with our other top choice, Independent Power Systems, but Dave had a slight edge in his industry knowledge.
The installation happened sooner than they had expected - some clearances came faster than predicted, and the panels arrived sooner - so we had the system up and running about two weeks earlier than we had initially thought.
We're expecting to produce nearly twice what we consumed last year, but we've also bought a Nissan Leaf to suck down most of that excess, truly driving that one with zero emissions. We're also considering moving to electric hot water. If you actually produce more than you consume over the long haul, while you build up a credit balance on your bill the power company is not required to pay you that money, so it is wisest to be very close to net zero for the year.

The only negative on the installation is that the monitoring was not correctly installed initially so the electrician had to come back and troubleshoot them, which it appears he did correctly. He was extremely competent with regard to the basic installation, and his workmanship was exemplary. I can only fault him for not having deep understanding of the monitoring systems. There are two monitors, by the way, something called the "L-Gate", which is a utility-grade remote metering system that SGE uses to measure production for SREC calculations, and a split production/consumption system from SunPower that lets you see the breakout on the web.
Very good and professional installer. Turnkey solution. Delivered the project on time. Will absolutely recommend to others.
They monitor the system as well. We had an issue where one of the parts blew up and I did not notice that the system was not generating power. They were on it already. Proactively reached out to me to swap the part out.
