We had our solar install this week and couldn’t be happier! The whole process was very smooth and seamless from getting a quote to the install. The team did a great job explaining the process and answering any questions I had. Everyone was very respectful of our home and property as they did the install, and it all went up so quickly! 8M truly has a great team who are all very knowledgeable and good at what they do. The sales guy was especially amazing and really went the extra mile for me. They are very honest and transparent about their prices (which are reasonable) and process, unlike so many other solar companies out there. It was so worth the investment especially with how great the customer service is and the lifetime workmanship warranty they include. The actual panels look amazing and the design looks so clean and well done. Overall just a great company and I am so glad we went with them!

8MSolar was nothing but professional, informative, and efficient. I wanted to get an interconnect form to Duke Energy before the net metering changes on October 1, and despite me waiting until September 13 to get that process started, they got the interconnect request done in time and the system was operational less than two months from signing paperwork. I never felt rushed or out of the loop, the sales process was informative but not pressured, the project manager kept me informed of my next steps and status at all times, and promptly answered any questions I had. The price was competitive, coming in well under the competition with as good as or better equipment and warranties. The system is working as designed, the install looks clean, and I feel confident that if I have any questions or issues down the road, 8MSolar will be happy to help.

Great Value and Performance

8MSolar was a great company to work with. I originally found them through EnergySage as I was a complete beginner, at the time. Bryce was the first person to reach out to me and understood I was getting other estimates, and even encouraged me to do so but offered a "careful warning" about large national corporations. They actually took an EagleView of my roof and did a preliminary setup to give me realistic ideas of what I could expect. The financing and process were fairly easy, though we did have a couple of hang-ups as we have a unique circumstance. Either way, there was no way for them to have known and I wasn't going to fault them for that information. Once we got all that situated though, it was smooth sailing. We had the roof replaced prior to the solar going up as we wanted it to last just as long as the panels. The installers did a great job on the brand new roof, had the correct equipment, and we made sure everything looked pristine (It legitimately looks amazing). We highly recommend them and will be referring them/using them again when the panels advance to the point that we can use a battery system.

Worth every penny

After doing a research for few months and shopping around for solar system on my house, I crossed the number of 8MSolar and chose to give them a try. It turned out that they have been better on price and very professional through whole process of installation. While enjoying my solar all I can say is “Thank you 8MSolar”.

8M Solar Review

8M Solar was tremendous throughout the entire process. They listened patiently to all my questions, incredibly responsive throughout the process, communicated well as they work towards installation, and ultimately, the installation of the panels was better than expected.

8M is top notch.

I don't often write reviews. 8M Solar earned this one. 8M Solar is the only company you should trust with your solar project. We solicited bids from 4 companies. All but 8M were simply sales pitches with a one size fits all approach. 8M Solar developed a plan that would work with some unique technical requirements and provided the engineering expertise to back it up. Their attention to detail is outstanding and they follow through on their promises. We hope to expand our installation and will be going straight to 8M when the time comes.

Fantastic solar installation process with 8M

I couldn't be happier with my experience with 8M Solar for the installation of solar panels on my roof. From start to finish, the entire process was incredibly smooth and hassle-free. What truly set 8M Solar apart was their outstanding communication and professionalism. They utilized project management software that not only streamlined the process but also included me in all communications, allowing me to observe the project's progress firsthand. Any questions or concerns I had were promptly addressed, often within the same day, which was incredibly reassuring. Another aspect that impressed me was their willingness to collaborate on the design. They welcomed my ideas and the engineers worked closely with me to ensure that the solar panel installation met my preferences and requirements. This level of customer-centricity truly made me feel like a valued part of the project. It was also clearly evident that 8M Solar values their team members and treats them with kindness and respect. This approach to their staff resonates with their commitment to excellence in every aspect of their work. The roof installation team, in particular, deserves special mention. Knowing that they are a dedicated and experienced team (not a subcontract) gave me added confidence in the process. Their use of a robust flashing system on the roof (Pegasus), was a higher quality system than I had researched with other solar companies, and speaks to their commitment to quality and longevity. In fact, their lifetime roof warranty reflects their confidence in the durability of their installation, another reason I decided to contract with them. All in all, my experience with 8M Solar was exceptional. They delivered on every promise and went above and beyond in ensuring my complete satisfaction. I can wholeheartedly recommend 8M Solar to anyone considering solar panel installation – they are truly a cut above the rest!

Great job by 8M Solar

My Solar system was turned on about 10 Days ago by 8M Solar . Everything working well. I couldn’t be any more happier. From the start with Brett (Sales guy) to the Project co-ordinator Hamza to the installation guy Gavin, everyone went above and beyond. The entire team did a great job. I would like to recommend them. They were cost effective, and the output Solar power is more than was promised.
