  • "SGE is Great"

    Reviewed Dec 23, 2019

    When I decided to go solar, I did an exhaustive sesrch on Solar companies in my area. I got 4 quotes from companies but only SGE responded for further questions in a timely fashion. Some companies responded 3 months after I installed my system. SGE installers were very friendly and professional when I decided to go with SGE. Their product was the best and the price was competitive and most importantly, they were a local company. They have continued to offer great service for the past 5 years and respond quickly to any concerns and questions. If you are thinking about going solar, and I encourage you to do so, then go with a local company and one that offers the best service and value for your money, SGE.

    I received several quotes from Energy Sage.After debating about which company to talk with and schedule an appointment with.I decided on Second Generation and schedule an appointment with them.At the time, I was also talking with several other companies not on Energy Sage.On the day of my appointment with Second Generation they contacted me shortly before the appointment and canceled.Another appointment was made on another date and they canceled the appointment again right before the appointment.So this left a very bad taste about this company ,so I never contacted them again.I in turn continued to speak with a couple of other companies and finally signed a contract with a company not on Energy Sage.So to Second Generation ,"Business 101 " keep the customer happy and follow thru with appointments and always establish great communication with customers.Your company lost a sale.Bobby

    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.

    You can see photos and read more on this blog:

    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.
