David was a great communicator and very knowledgeable in explaining the benefits of our system.  Project was completed very quickly from start to finish.  David periodically checks on our system to ensure it is operating optimally, highly recommend. Went from an estimate to final inspection in approximately 2 weeks.

David has been very professional before, during, and after our solar project installation. He is always very responsive and helpful if I have any questions regarding our solar system. We got a system with great value and at a cost less then all other bids I received. I would definitely recommend!

 Kyle S., Chico CA 

David was extremely knowledgeable about the product and upfront about what to expect given our usage and the installation he proposed. First time my wife and I have considered solar so his knowledge helped us make an informed decision. Agree with others that David is an excellent communicator. We were impressed with David’s professionalism and that he made the process very easy taking care of all the permits, inspections, etc. Everything was completed as proposed, in a timely manner and works flawlessly. 

 

 Tom H., Chico, CA 

 My wife and I felt that our electric bills had reached the point that solar might be worth investing in.  We didn’t know a lot about the ins and outs of how solar works so we reached out to several providers to schedule interviews.   David responded very quickly and scheduled a time to sit down with us.  Even had his installer come by to check out our breaker box to see what would need to be done to connect the required breakers to serve the solar array.  From beginning to end, David was very professional and ready to stay engaged with us through the process.  Handled all aspects of the process from permits, scheduling installation and inspection and certification with PG&E.  Gave us instruction on how to use the smart phone app to monitor our solar production.  System was installed very quickly and in only a few hours and has worked flawlessly.  It is obvious that David has experience as a small business owner and understands the importance of customer service.  I feel quite confident that if we were to have questions and/or issues going forward that David would be there for us.
