But don't just take our word for it...

“Ken has been my go-to guy for PVs, and is generally considered the best PV expert in our PV-rich area. He designed and installed my state-of-the-art, superefficient home and office’s PV system which can run resiliently with or without the the grid.”

“We were very pleased with the entire process of adding on solar, as well as working with Sol Energy. Ken stayed with it all the way through the entire process, including rebates, until it was up & running and hooked up to our computer for easy access. I basically did nothing …..except sit in the shade & watch it all happen. We would definitely recommend Sol Energy to everyone.”

“I work in the utility industry and know many of the solar installers in the valley and statewide. My wife and I chose to work with SoL Energy because their experience, level of customer service and personal approach were the best fit for us, and we have been very happy with our system and the ongoing support.”

I am happy to write about our incredible experience with SOL Energy. We didn’t have to do a thing. The crew staged and completed the project seamlessly and perfectly, from design to permits to communication with Xcel- easy peasy…Nope, we don’t have to wait for our kid to benefit- the planet benefits today, we pay lower bills starting plug in date. That keeps us independent of the foreseen rise in energy costs, and as soon as we are ready, will add batteries.
