      Do not use this company. Too many negatives to count. Go to Design 1 Group Bad Experience on Facebook and become a part of the class action today. This company sells lies, doesn't communicate, as soon as they get your money they bail. The list is long and arduous.

      I was promised to have my installation done in Dec 2021, and didn't happen until mid Jan 2022 for starters, I should have known this was a sign of things to come! So eventually they were set up for a date in Jan... After staying home all day, at 4:00 in the afternoon I called to inquire when they planned on arriving? I was told, "oh.... the installers are still at a previous job and can't make it." I wasn't thrilled about wasting an entire day!

      They showed up the following day to do the installation. During that time, one of their installers decided to take the work van and drive all over my back yard driving repeatedly over my septic system. (Still waiting to find out if any damage was done to septic system). Then the installer got work van stuck in my back yard just before going over a 20 foot cliff!! And had to leave van stuck overnight until their return visit the following day, they had a couple things to finish the next day and would only take 1 maybe 2 hours to complete.

      Well, the following day, they returned early to finish the 2 hours work. I had to jump start the stuck truck for the 3rd or 4th time at this point for the installers, and use my personal truck to pull the van out of my back yard.. After working on the install all day not 1 or 2 hrs, they left knowing the system was not working in any way, as they left? I had to listen to the solar unit outside beeping 24 hrs a day in Alarm mode! That was close to 3 months ago at this point!!! I've made repeated calls inquiring when someone was going to come out to finish the installation? ALWAYS told, "I'll look into this immediately and get back to you.."

      It's been1 month since my last inquiry and Still haven't heard a word!? I decided to write my contact person for this company a couple days ago Again inquiring when can I expect someone to call or fix this install...? 3 days later at this point and of course, NOTHING !? The usual nonresponse. I have a huge hole in the drywall in master bedroom still unrepaired, I haven't had lights in my basement working since the "installation" because they were supposed to work off of solar panel system which has NEVER worked. So no lights or power in my basement, no power to my refrigerator since early January tomorrow is April!

      At this point I'm going to have to contact an attorney to get out of this deal with what appears to me, to be a very confused shady company! I also told them if they cannot respond to my emails or calls, I will remove all of their equipment from my home and rewire the basement and refrigerator circuit so they will again work as they did before Design 1 Solar Group came to my home and will have it all stacked at the end of my driveway! It can sit there for a year for all I care at this point. I would Strongly advise you DO NOT by any means use this joke of a company!
