Chris, Jonathan and all the SunBlue Energy team delivered great service in our journey to install solar power in our house. We had a great experience from the beginning with Jonathan guiding us through the process of evaluating if solar made sense for us from all angles. They were transparent throughout the process and very responsive whenever we had any question or concern. I highly recommend the SunBlue team if you are planning to go Solar.
The entire team did an amazing job, from the financing, design, and installation everything went as expected. As an Architect who builds homes for a living, I have to say they exceeded my expectations. The system has been online an active for about a year and it is performing better than expected. my 1 panels produce %100 of my electric. it's nice to see my electric bill negative (they owe me) most of the time
Sun Blue Rocks! Chris, Jon and the team walked us through the options and were patient to explain every step of the process. I am really happy we went with Sun Blue and have a local vendor who is responsive and accessible. The install was flawless and we are up and running and confident of our investment, and feel we are in good hands in case we need anything. It's great that they are just around the corner, and attend to their customers with a personal touch.
I highly recommend Sun Blue Energy for your residential solar panels. Chris, Jonathan and team did a great job from beginning to end. They are many moving parts in installing solar from the paperwork, installing the panels, working with the local town inspectors, coordinating with Con Ed, etc. SunBlue was with me every step of the way. They were proactive and followed on any questions or issues we had. I first was thinking of using Tesla but they were not responsive and provided me a 1-800 number call center for my questions. What a mess. SunBlue came to the house and personally called me back when I had questions. They were great!. Go with SunBlue Energy if your thinking of installing solar panels. I'm very happy I did.
These are the words to describe my experience with sunblue Energy. Johnathan was great and so was the installation crew. The installation was done on time and the system is producing what they said it would and more importantly i am now saving a lot. I have already recommended them to my family and friends.
SunBlue energy has the best service of all. After obtaining quotes and information from
Several other companies, I found SunBlue and I accepted them to complete my project. Jonathan is an amazing sales person and Chris was fantastic in ensuring that the project was done well and on time. Both are amazing which speaks great about this company.
I highly recommend SunBlue Energy. From the start I was impressed with how painless they made my Solar Panel install project. From our first meeting to go over the proposed design, the actual install, to the end of project walkthrough, the Sun Blue team was very professional and took the time to answer all my questions. They provide high quality product at a reasonable price. Definitely given them a go, you will not be disappointed!
After meeting with several solar installers, we decided to pick SunBlue Energy to install our system. The process from start to finish was hassle free. SunBlue performed the work in a timely and professional manner. The installation was finished in 2.5 days. Any questions we had along the way were always answered promptly. We are very happy with our choice, and we recommend SunBlue Energy to people who want a quality product and service.
As with any effort to choose the right contractor for a home improvement project, picking a solar installation company is a time consuming and difficult task. I investigated almost half a dozen solar companies and ended up choosing SunBlue Energy for my home in Rockland. I was lucky to have made the right choice. I say "lucky" because you don't really know until you pick one and have them do the work. Until then, it's a crap shoot.
In all honesty, I don't think any solar company out there could be better than SunBlue; they were the best in all categories - price, technical knowledge, quality of workmanship/materials, professionalism, and support after project completion. The installers were great, and the owner, Chris Hale, oversaw everything.
Here's why you have to be careful. One of the solar installers I almost selected couldn't answer important technical questions, pushed to do the installation before permits were obtained, and then tried to extort almost $8,000 from me without doing any work at my home, forcing me to file a complaint with our local Consumer Protection Agency.
I have some minor suggestions that would take SunBlue from close to perfect to 100% perfect, but keep in mind this is really splitting hairs. When the panels are being installed on the racks, clean gloves should be worn by the installers to avoid hand prints on the front surface of the panels (I noticed the hand prints only because I was an optics specialist at one time). Less tension should be placed on the wiring that runs between panels (I mentioned this to the installers and they said they would go back and make adjustments.) And finally, SunBlue forgot to tell me when my utility interconnection was complete, so my system was up and running many days before I knew about it. But these minor issues do not detract from the otherwise great work done by SunBlue.
The moral of the story is that it does make a difference which company you use, and after a lot of research, home site surveys, and agony deciding which company to use, I made the right choice with SunBlue. Save yourself a lot of time and trouble - use SunBlue.
If you are looking for a great solar installation company look no further than Sunblue Energy. This company was top notch in all aspects of the business. I heavily researched solar energy before contacting a single solar energy company, so much so that when I called some solar companies I knew more than the sales person who I got on the phone. Sunblue was the first company who sent a sales rep to my home, Jonathan was on time, professional and very well educated in solar energy. I told him what I wanted and he told me he could get exactly what I was looking for, he also explained the upside and downside of what I wanted and offered other solutions that fit my plan that he would give me proposals for so I could pick the best solution. Most of the other companies I contacted will only deal with you through the internet or give you some sales pitch aver the phone while you follow along with a presentation. Since trying to maximize your power generation and minimize your electric bill is the main goal of going solar having a company doing everything over the internet and with google maps is not very reassuring. Some companies said I could fit way more panels than was possible, other companies wanted to put panels on the front of my house where there is no sun. It can get very frustrating dealing with the barrage of information. Sunblue energy was the exact opposite, they came, they measured, they did shading studies and gave me all the info I needed to make an informed decision and their price was better than any other company I dealt with. I decided that Sunblue Energy was the way to go, they handled everything once I signed with them, I didn’t have to worry about anything. From permits to deliveries to installation, testing, interfacing with my electric company, they handled it all seamlessly. The installation was perfect, I was very worried how it was going to look when it was finished. Put that worry to rest, you can barely tell they did anything, one small conduit perfectly routed to my fuse box and a small conduit following my eave to the roof, perfect. They had a crew of 2 guys at my house and were finished with my 21 panel system in 2 days. My first full month of operation I saved over 200.00 dollars on my electric bill. So if you are thinking about going solar do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time and effort trying to find the best solar company, I have already done all the hard work for you, contact Sunblue Energy and you will not be disappointed.
Sunblue service is excellent. They were on time during installation. in addition the service after installation has been great. They have contacted me when my system was not operating properly. Sent repair person at my convenience.
Highly recommend SunBlue.
I received several quotes and talked to several installers before deciding to go with SunBlue. Jonathan and Chris came out for an in person meeting and I was immediately sold. The whole process from signing the paperwork to producing solar energy was very fast and took about 2 months total. Permits and everything are usually are hassle but they handled everything and made it effortless for me. The installation crew worked diligently, were organized and did a very neat job installing all the necessary components. I'm looking forward to producing solar energy for many years to come!
Before we talked to SunBlue we had received three other estimates and had pretty much decided on another installer. However, SunBlue's presentation, transparency, and ability to intelligently answer all our questions was by far the best we experienced. They were able to describe and provide documentation about everything (all the equipment, process, etc), were on top of getting the permit, interacting with the utility, etc. SunBlue wasn't the cheapest (they weren't trying to sell us less efficient commercial panels for one) but they weren't the most expensive and the additional cost was well worth the level of customer service, professionalism, and comfort I had with them.
SunBlue is a great company to purchase you solar system from. There are many company out there that all they want is to make a sale. This is the opposite with SunBlue, they work with you from start to finish to make sure you get the best system for your home. What they promise is what you get, the system generation numbers that were given to me for my system were pretty accurate to what I’m currently producing. They handled everything that dealt with the install of my system, including permits to net meter installation by the utility company. Their installation team did a great job with the install of my system and it was done in a timely manner that exceeded my expectations.
SunBlue was recommended by a friend, who talked very highly of their service and professionalism, which I first I didn’t believe. That is why I chose another company over them. At the end I came back to them after realizing that the other company was giving false promises just to make a sale. After all I was very happy I chose them, would definitely recommend them to anyone looking on getting a Solar System!
I spent months researching and investigating solar before pulling the trigger. We hired SunBLUE Energy because they are a local company, were very responsive, and provided the best options and great pricing. Once the contract was signed, everything went just as they said it would. They are a great company to deal with and kudos to President Chris Hale who remains very attentive to our project. We are completely satisfied with SunBLUE and highly recommend them.
SunBlue workmanship was excellent and they delivered as discussed. No issues in set-up and inspections passed with no issues. Great job overall.
This company really knows what they're doing, and is extremely customer focused. They answered every question I could think of, from permitting to financing, and did a great job with our installation. We're already net-metering, and I couldnt be happier. Fast, reasonable, and customer-focused. Cant say a bad thing about Chris, Jonathan, and Marla. A great team.
SunBlue Energy was exceptional! Friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and efficient! My system they installed, without a hitch, has been producing for 5 months! Highly recommend! Talk to the rest, then go with the best...SunBlue Energy!
Jonathan and Chris were great during the whole sale and installation process. They were very competitive with price and products. They got us the best price out of the local solar companies. Jonathan and Chris clearing explained the hardware and how the panels work as well as what to expect through the installation process and after. The installers were professional and explained the how the equipment worked and how to turn it on and off. I would recommend SunBlue Energy to anyone who is interested in solar.
Starting a Solar project in Queens, with the NYC Dept. of Buildings filings and bureaucracy seemed extremely daunting, but Sun Blue made it easy. They have been present and helpful throughout the entire installation, from start to finish - generous with their time and expertise. I purchased a relatively small system from SunBlue outright and they have been up front and on target about costs and timing. I regularly work with contractors and they have been excellent from both the business side and the installer side. And the price was right. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
Very responsive and available throughout the process. They never stopped on the customer service front and are extremely professional and reliable. Our new solar panels are producing a lot of electricity and they went up with no problems or concerns. Thanks to the management and all the staff for all the attention to details, the interface with town and utility permitting and overall great service.
After purchasing our first home, it was recommended by a friend that we look into Solar energy to help mitigate our monthly expenses. They recommended SunBlue Energy and I began the process with them to look into our options. From beginning to end, the SunBlue team made the process simple and smooth. The team really went above and beyond to make me feel like they not only wanted my business but to provide this solution for our home to help us achieve our cost saving goals. It felt like a partnership rather than a hard sell. When it came time for installation, the crew was excellent. They were respectful and kind, and did a great job installing the equipment in a timely manner. SunBlue handled all of the permits and other cumbersome paperwork with ease, and had our system up and running in a timeframe that well exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend SunBlue Energy for your Solar power needs!
We have been generating solar power for two weeks now with our small, 12-panel system, which is just right for our small roof and our small electricity consumption. It's great that SunBlue made the economics work out even at such a small scale – we expect to break even in seven years, and have warranties that ensure energy production well beyond that. All the folks at SunBlue, from the owner to the installers, communicated the steps and schedule of the process clearly and thoroughly – there were no surprises at all. We feel very comfortable looking around town and seeing all the SunBlue installations, including the large one on the Music Hall – our community has made a large investment in our local supplier, and we expect that SunBlue will honor that commitment. Basically, solar power is a money-making, world-saving, easy-to-do opportunity – go do it!
Chris and Jonathan are very responsive and always follow up quickly when we have questions. they took care of paperworks with town and state requirement flawlessly.
To be honest, I did not do any price comparison shopping. I am the type where if a price seems reasonable, I go with my gut and purchase. I was impressed with their reviews, and I have to say expectations were met. They were on point from start to finish. Seamless process, and they kept me updated at every step of the process from what to expect, and when to expect it. Jonathan was my representative and he did a top notch job with explaining the process and going over layouts etc.
The owner Chris was also on site at the job at least on one occasion and came off as an amicable guy. Seems like a smaller company, but that is often how you have good quality control.
Would definitely use them again.
SunBlue staff were very professional. Their sales person Jonathan took his time explaining the process for us to get our solar panels installed. The working crew were friendly and their work was done fast, clean and efficiently. No complaints. I am very happy of the work. Will be referring friends to SunBlue.
I was ok aproved on a solar energy on late May of this year. Job was completed on July of this year which was a little bit delayed. Chris Hale issued me a check for the two months I had to wait for the project to be completed. Today i'm excited receiving low mothly bills. Jonathan is a sale rep. and I am thankful for his quick responses.
I can't say enough about SunBlue. From the first time we discussed solar power with them, they have been not only informative and frank about our needs and the possibilities available for us with solar/pv, they have been a complete pleasure to work with from the owner to the engineers to the installers. My system is working exactly the way we hoped and designed. I recommend them without any reservation.
Very professional company. They took control and followed through on all aspects of the process. They kept in close contact with us throughout the planning and installation. They set up the monitoring on the iPad for us. I highly recommend using Sun Blue!
Worked with Johnathan and had an easy install. The company was receptive during the process and would recommend.
II was very very cautious getting quotes and talking to solar companies based on the customer reviews of many OTHER solar companies out there. Everything from customers being promised one price and it changing as the install goes on, or the horror stories of terrible installs. I decided on Sun Blue because they're local, used their own installers, and the owner of the company meet me on the initial visit. They kept their word, and did an exceptional job with the install. Don't hesitate with Sun Blue.
SunBlue Energy was a company that looked out for my needs not to mention I met the owner of the company, Chris Hale. The team fulfilled all their promises with urgency and professionalism. If feels good to know I can always reach out to a local company if needed.
Awesome Team from Sun Blue, great guys to work with, friendly , detail oriented and great follow up team.
Chris and his team were always patient and answered all my questions in details. From the beginning of project planning to the end of system installation, the team persistently demonstrated their professional expertise. I feel comfortable to have them install the solar system for my home. The whole process, including permit application to net meter installation by utility company, only takes less than three months. SunBlue matches the best warranty available in the market. I feel confident that SunBlue will be with me down the road on needs to maintain the system.
There were many solar companies hounding us to move forward without really looking into our needs. SunBlue Energy were polite and professional throughout the entire process from the presentation to the installation. SunBlue Energy are local and offer ownership of your system. They also offer a no money down financial loan. This financial loan does not affect the family budget. We pay off the loan with our savings while saving money on the utility bill!
Feels great to see the meter spin backwards and it feels better that we chose the right company.
Thank you SunBlue!
I'm not one to take the time to write a review. However, SunBlue was exceptional from start to finish. And it was not just at the start with the sales process. Everyone from the sales, project management, and installers were first rate. Benefit that SunBlue has is these are all employees of SunBlue, so they all have a vested interest in each customer.
I'm one of those people who does a lot of research before speaking with anyone...which is why EnergySage was a fantastic place to start. Thus I had a lot of questions when we first spoke - which they always handled promptly by email - so it was at my convenience. After narrowing it down to 3 Co, I reached out to have a call with each Co. From the first contact SunBlue's Jonathan Bonhomme was direct, factual, prompt, and patient with all my questions. Of all the Co's I spoke to, Jonathan was the most forthright and always the first to follow through and respond. Between that, the fact they are local, price was in line with other Co, and do not subcontract - signing with them was an easy choice.
Once I agreed to start - I'll sum it up like this...."What he said they would do, is exactly what they did." They handled everything. From walking me through the loan application process, to filling for the building permit, reaching out to ConEdison & adding bracing in my attic. They even have a Notary for the forms that needed to be notarized. They came to my home or office which ever was most convenient to me.
The whole project ran like clockwork - thanks to Richez who managed the over all process. I believe I received my building permit on a Friday. The following Thursday - they started the install. That first day - they did put all the electric in place and braced the attic. I don't know about you, but I have lots of stuff in my attic. Items were moved with care and there was no mess anywhere when they were done. Unfortunately, we then had four days of rain so they could not complete the job until the end of the following week. Weather broke & the crew was back on site and finished the install that day. Of course they handled the electrical inspection and certification. Once that was done, ConEd came within a week (I was surprised about that) and put the new meter in so I could turn on the system. SunBlue then came back and took the time to provide a complete walk through of the system, provided me copies of all documentation including the roof & solar survey's, contracts, and equipment warranties.
Systems been on for about 3 weeks now. Production is what they projected and I have full confidence that I'll be able to cover 100% of my usage over a 12 month period.
If I had to do it all over again - I would go right back to SunBlue.
We interviewed several solar system vendors. SunBlue impressed us with their low pressure, patient conversation, a detailed bid and clear explanation of how the installation, rebates and incentives would work out. The install went smoothly and we have enjoyed annual net zero electricity consumption ever since! We are on track to break even six years after installation if electricity rates stay flat. Sweet!
The panels and microinverters that SunBlue chose for our roof (detached residential) and installed 14 months ago have produced more electricity for each of those months than Sun Blue had predicted (except for months in which snow covered the panels). The surplus was somewhere between 10% and 40% more than predicted in each month. In addition, while pre-installation SunBlue had predicted we would produce on a net basis around 78% of our family usage, we actually produced about 110% of our family usage in the first year (which includes the down time for the snow). We could not be happier with our SunBlue installation, and enthusiastically recommend them to similarly situated homeowners.
SunBlue installed 20 solar panels on my roof. From the first interaction when they crawled up on the roof and estimated whether the job was feasible to today -- two years later -- when they continue to come by periodically to check in on the panels, I sing their praises. SunBlue handled all of the Village permitting issues, were timely in their estimates of installation, worked with a tree guy to trim what needed to be done... I highly recommend.
We have a 5k system on our roof for around 2+ years. It just sits there generating power with little thought to much of anything. Once we had a minor issue post install, and it was taken care of quickly and effectively.
Nice people, effective product, good for my wallet and environment.
Still look for a downside, haven't found one.
The employees of Sunblue are professional and care about their work and customer satisfaction. From the start Chris guided the process and there high customer service has continued after the installation.
Chris, Barrett and the rest of the SunBlue company was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They explained the process from of my purchase for solar panels from day one to the day that I was able to finally flip the switch to active me panels. I was always kept up to date every step of the way. The crew made sure that my property was kept clean at all times during the installation of the panel system. I was very happy that I had picked SunBlue Energy for my purchase and would highly recommend them for anyone looking to purchase solar panels.
Friendly, professional analysis and recommendations followed by a professional installation. No surprises.
What more could one ask for?
they kept all their promises. Chris Hale is a class act. I'm making over 10% on my investment.
I had a very good experience with SunBlue for my solar system for my home. This includes the explanations before I agreed to the system and the whole installation process. The crew were professional, neat and finished quickly. I strongly recommend SunBlue!
From the planning stage all the way through the completion of the installation, all the members of the Sun Blue team were extremely competent and professional in getting the job done right. Their response time to answer question or any issue that arose was superb. Now a year and a half after the installation I am happy to say that our Solar output has exceeded the estimates we were given and I can't be happier with Sun Blue Energy.
SunBlue provided a quality, affordable solar installation. They always kept me informed of the status of the installation, and arrived on time for appointments. The staff was always professional, personable, and responsive to questions. The install was preformed neatly, resulting in a good looking job. I would highly recommend them.
The entire process was seamless and we've been producing a great deal of energy especially during spring and summer
Our electric bill has significantly deminished
We had quotes from four different solar companies. We decided we wanted to buy our system rather than lease it, and we wanted high quality components but not necessarily the most expensive. We also liked the idea of going with a local company rather than a national chain. Out of all the sales people we spoke with, we liked Barrett Silver from SunBlue the best. He took the time to explain things in detail and answer all our questions completely. Unlike some other sales representatives, we felt confident in his integrity, and he didn't try to pressure us to make a sale. SunBlue used only high quality components (LG 300 panels, SMA inverters, Unirac's SolarMount system) and came in at a price we thought was reasonable. Their system should supply 104% of our annual electricity needs. Our SMA inverters came with the option of a secure power supply in case of the grid going down, and SunBlue offered to put the secure power supply outlet in the upstairs room where we work on our computers. Permitting with NYSERDA and the town (Greenburgh, NY) went more quickly then we anticipated. The team that did the survey and installation work was friendly and professional. They came when they said they would, and cleaned up after themselves. There were some small unanticipated problems during the process -- because of the town electrical code requirements, the inverters couldn't be placed where we originally thought they would go in our garage, and instead ended up mounted outside the back of the house. This meant more extensive wiring than anticipated to get the secure power outlet where we wanted it to be. The installation team communicated well with us around these problems, invited our input, and came up with solutions that completely satisfied us. ConEd swapped out our meter and the town completed its inspections faster than we thought they would, and we are now up and running. Electrical production is what they predicted it would be. Our panels are warranted for 25 years, our inverters and mounting system for 10 years, and SunBlue warrantees all their work for 5 years. Barrett Silver visited us once again when all the work was complete to answer any of our remaining questions and get our feedback about the process. After NYSERDA rebates and State and Federal tax credits, the actual cost of the system to us should be $19,500. We would definitely recommend their services to others.
