Clean Solar did a great job on our 18 panel home solar system. They were direct and honest with their proposal and there was no pressure or funny business. When I told them I needed a few months to make a decision, they were fine with it and Bryon, our account manager, checked in regularly and unobtrusively to ask if we had any questions. I did and he answered all of them throughly. I had contacted three other solar vendors, including the big and prominent one, and none was as willing to spend time and talk through my questions as Clean Solar. Clean Solar ended up putting together different five proposals as I changed what I was interested in with no issues. They gave me choices and options and told me the advantages and disadvantages of each. The big company never stayed in touch, when I called them later the contact I had originally had left the company, I was told someone would get back to me and they never did. But in addition, they were inflexible by favoring leasing over buy, and their pricing was not as good as Clean Solar for buying vs leasing.
That approach to customer relations continued after we signed the contract. They kept us informed about what would happen and what did happen every step of the way. They let us know that Los Altos inspectors might expect to come into the house to inspect the smoke alarms, and what we needed to do ahead of time to be prepared. They handled the inspections and permits without me having to get involved, as well as working with PGE to get them to sign off. They made sure we approved ahead of time where each piece of the system went, including the proposed location of the inverter. The installation process took two days, and went smoothly. All employees were very professional and customer focused. Bryon followed up after the installation by coming to our house, going over paperwork and maintenance suggestions, as well as reviewing with us the details of how the system worked.
Having gotten proposals from many vendors and seeing so many negative reviews in Yelp from others, I highly recommend Clean Solar.... read more

6 Thumps up for Tim Littlefield and Clean Solar !! Excellent experience with Clean Solar !!
I saw the top Yelp reviews and they delivered across the board.I got quotes from several solar companies, ranging from large corporations to small local businesses. After my research and talking to few of my friends who has had panels for many years, I decided to go with Clean Solar and I am glad I did! They had all the perks of a large company - price advantage, parts warranty, labor warranty etc. However they also have the perks of a small local business: when you call you get a human every time, or a quick call back if they need to....
Here''s what I loved about them:
1. Convincing Sales guy
2. Project Management
3. Schematic Drawings
4. Construction/Solar panel Installation.
5. Smooth City Inspection
6. Walk Through of solar system.
7. Quick "Permission to Operate" from PG&E/Energy-utilities provider
Tim Littlefield was a great sales guy who walked us through the quote process, he spent about 1 Hours on our roof on his first visit and told us there were no big issues standing in the way of installation. His quote totally made sense and his advice aligned with thew research I did on my own. He was able to help us source all Sun Power panels to maximize solar output and 25 years warranty,which really made the difference for us!
--> Clean Solar gave us a detailed report with the quote explaining the economics involved in sizing the system -- they ran multiple reports to give me a couple of options based on various hypothetical scenarios.
--> Clean Solar answered every question I had about the process and the system (as an engineer, I had many of these!)
--> Clean Solar did a wonderful job on our house and supplied us with a clear diagram of how the solar would be placed and on which roof faces.
--> Clean Solar inked the deal and coordinated the install with me entirely over email ; I never even had to pick up the phone!
--> Clean Solar helped us do City Inspection as easy as it could have gone and hooked up with PG&E in no time.
In nut shell, Clean solar has outstanding service, their employees are eager to please and have latest technology!
The work was done in a less than a 10 days( When actual construction started and I got a Permission To Operate from PG&E), and the system was operational in the same time window. Even PG&E moved quickly for us without Tim having to badger them, I got an email within one day after the application went in to them saying we were all hooked up.
The city inspection also went smoothly with no issues raised.
I highly recommend Tim Littlefield and Clean Solar to anyone looking to join the green revolution!
