It's wonderful to use. Less money also - would recommend it to others because it's cheap and easy to use. Love the company also. They're straight forward with you and are very helpful.
Totally I am pleasant about my solar energy company experience. But it should be more option about offers. Some prices are a little expensive and it must be more technologic. Online services are not enough I think. When you have problem about you system, you must have enough information.
The install was quick. The workers keep everything today. Payback is not going as originally planned. Otherwise I'm satisfied, though could be happier.
Ordered an energy saver for my rooftop. They walked me through all kinds of options based on needs, budget, and long-term use ideas. Shipped to me by freight packaged very well. Had a local contractor assemble it for me. All instructions needed were available. Will refer to others looking for the equipment.
All transactions from beginning to end were very professional. Enjoyed the experience a great deal. Would surely do it all again. Installation was a breeze and financing was not nearly as scary as expected.
I was a bit nervous and didn't know what to expect, but everyone was very friendly, informative, and helpful. I got a solar panel installed on my roof and it is energy saving and affordable (sort of). They helped me decide on the right product for me and obtain reasonable financing. Installation was easy, as there were capable people sent to do the job. I am happy with the experience, over all, and will be doing business with them again, in the future.
It saves money and can also generate electricity back into the grid. Installation is easy, very simple set. Great new source of energy. I like the new shingle solar panels that act as shingles for your roof, you get both sides of the sun. Really interested in that. Other than that the experience of seeing it done and the benefits is a great thing. That I am positive of.
I am very pro-environment and this step felt necessary to take as someone who believes that way. I appreciate the lack of guilt I now experience when I flip on the light or use the microwave. The sun is creating this electricity, not some coal burning somewhere.
This is a major decision when purchasing these products. I would suggest studying the finance all aspect and your budget to see if this is the right decision for you and your family.
The installation took a little longer due to the company incorrectly measuring the installation company. The financing was fine. The monthly savings are nice, payback will take a limitless longer than I like.
My family used this company in our old house and it worked fine! The reviews were average for SunPower but it worked well for our household. There was no need on relying on external fuel sources. Installation was quick and easy!
Good for low cost, makes people happy, good source of energy, would recommend to other people looking for lost cost power that's not running on a lot of energy.
It was pretty great. I am new to the area of the awesome solar power, but am loving it more and more. I am proud to say I will be doing more and more to keep it green after my experience.
Highest efficiency panels and a seriously great team we got to work with through the process. Customer service is amazing. Highest quality installation.
Reliable, solid company. Very friendly customer service. Prompt answers to questions. I was skeptical about solar companies, but the company answered all my questions to my satisfaction. The installation was quick and painless.
The whole process was easier than first imagined. When completed I was satisfied. Everything was explained to me beforehand and how the process would unfold. The workman understood their job and a quality job was performed. Now I am saving money and look forward to my future savings.
I have bought products and services from solar energy company and I'm very very satisfied whit this. They are so professionals, I feel I help to care the planet with this decision and I recommended to all my family and friends. It's very innovated, very new and is not dangerous for the planet.
Shopping around was a bit difficult but upon settling on company I realized I made the right choice. Between financing, customer service and the overall feel, I would rate them highly.
I was overcome with all the thing they had almost neighing electrol and how easy it is to install. I know a little about electrol so it was very enjoyable for me to install, put some lights along my driveway and some lights that look like snowflakes, and for the summer look like flowers bout, a big lighting system for my hunting cabin. It's easy to put up when I am there and put away when I am not there then I put some panels on my home to help with my electric heat bill. The people at the store are so helpful. P.S. I spent a lot.
This was very easy to install and I live on a big hill and always get a lot of sun and wind. This products really warmed up my porch with power from the sun. It made it at least 20 degrees warmer in my home and cooler in the summer. I love it.
Great company, good ideas, and is like the Apple of the solar energy world. Would recommend to everyone. A solid green energy alternative. Customer service was great, installation was smooth, and my financing options were reasonable.
It was a great experience. The experts helped me find exactly what I needed. The prices were great. Now with my new panels my electric bill has decreased and I feel better using solar energy.
I installed some solar panels on my home and was happily surprised by the easy installation and the end results. The price was a bit high but I had been saving for some five years. The research I did online and the company representatives were a great help in my project. In about 1 or 2 years, I plan on installing more solar power energy efficiency panels in my other home. I will rent it out and save more money.
A useful and great thing to have. Very good for my family and environment. Thank you for providing this great product and company. I look forward to future business for years to come. You have a lifelong customer in me.
It's a great product. It pays for itself, helps us improve the quality of air we breathe, and increases the value of our home. It's no wonder everyone that I know that went solar is pleased they did. Our installation went very smoothly and electric generation performance met all our expectations. We're very fortunate to have our solar power, and the saving it provides us.
I had SunPower solar panels installed by a local installer 3 months ago. The installer did a good job and the panels produce a lot of power. There was a $1,500 rebate that I qualified for that I submitted at the end of August with 6-8 weeks for receipt of my rebate. It has now been 12 weeks since my rebate was recognized as complete and after 4 telephone conversations I am no closer to receiving my rebate than I was when I sent it. They tell me I will receive it by a certain day and that day comes and goes. I get one answer from SunPower and another answer from the processing company. I was told that my installer was not an approved installer but when I look at SunPower's own website they are listed as a Platinum partner.
This is just an egregious example of trying to delay and defer payment of my rebate. This practice is despicable and I don't really believe anything these people tell me anymore. I would stay away from them. I wouldn't count on any rebates they promise you. This has not been worth the stress, lies, delays and disrespect. I am shocked at this, it was an expensive system, not a $4 tube of toothpaste from a discount store. I expected more integrity.
Entered a lease agreement with Sunpower with the understanding that cost per kwh would be reduced. After 2.5 years of operation, the Sunpower facility under-produces the contract guarantee. There is no prospect, because of physical limitations, for the system to come into compliance with the guarantee in the future. More importantly, during 2013 Edison power was delivered at an average cost of 0.258$/kwh. After including maintenance cost, 21 Sunpower panels produced power at at a cost of 0.479$/kwh. Including nominal maintenance cost the total cost of power in 2013 was $8708. In 2012 with total power usage the same as 2013, using Edison power alone, the total cost was $6456. The addition of the Sunpower facility is an unacceptable burden.
We love our SunPower panels and the customer service is amazing. So thankful we made the choice to lease with them. Can't wait to get them installed on our rental property. Highest efficiency panels and a seriously great team we got to work with through the process. Thank you!
If you finance with them, they will put a lien on your home should you want to refinance or sell. It should just be for their equipment but it will still show up as a lien on your home title. SunPower is very slow to work with your bank to do what they call a temporary termination of the lien during any transaction with your home. DON'T DO! I owned my home and wanted to use a cash out and they delayed the closing. If not happy, file compliant with any financing arrangement with Consumer Financial Protection Board. Also, don't buy in the summer because it take months before they can get it approved by local energy supplier and inspectors. Do not use the program that adds it to your taxes either.
Do NOT lease with SunPower. They tried to bamboozle me with making payments for the former owners of my new house. When we got a roof leak, they did not respond to any calls to get the panels off. We had to call an attorney. When they did finally call back after 3 weeks with the attorney involved, they told us they could remove and replace the panels for $6,000. I have all the emails that show their incompetence and trickery. Do your homework before you sign ANYTHING with SunPower.
