Poor service avoid at all costs

recently encountered significant issues with my solar energy system installed by A1A Solar, particularly with the Envoy component, which serves as the communication and control center for my PV system. Despite the initial promise of a high-quality, long-lasting solar solution, I have faced unexpected challenges that have left me disappointed. First and foremost, my Envoy unit malfunctioned, resulting in a substantial loss of solar energy production. This not only impacted my energy savings but also compromised the efficiency of my entire system. While A1A Solar's representative, Jenny, was responsive and explained that the Envoy needed to be replaced, I was taken aback by the additional costs associated with this replacement. At the time of installation, there was no mention or written information indicating that future upgrades or replacements would incur extra charges. This lack of prior notification is concerning, especially given the significant investment I made in this system. Additionally, I have not received clear communication on how the lost solar energy production will be addressed or compensated. The unexpected costs, coupled with the loss of energy production, have left me feeling frustrated and undervalued as a customer. While I appreciate the initial service and support provided by A1A Solar, I believe that greater transparency and better customer care are essential for maintaining trust and satisfaction. I hope that A1A Solar will take these concerns seriously and work towards providing a fair and reasonable resolution. Overall, my experience with A1A Solar has been mixed. While the initial installation and performance were satisfactory, the recent issues and unexpected costs have overshadowed the positive aspects. I hope to see improvements in communication and customer support in the future. Update 06-17-2024 Thank you for your response. While I appreciate your willingness to address my concerns, I am still awaiting concrete actions and solutions to resolve the issues with my Envoy unit and the unexpected costs associated with its replacement. The loss of solar energy production has had a significant impact on my energy savings and overall system efficiency, which needs to be urgently addressed. I look forward to a prompt and satisfactory resolution to these matters and hope that A1A Solar will take the necessary steps to restore my trust in their service.

Everyone very professional and knowledgeable.

I was looking for a solar repair company. I came across A1A Solar and gave them a call. Robin was so helpful and informative. I had a solar system installed by Daybreak Solar 4-5 years ago. Never had a problem with them. I noticed water marks on the ceiling in my kitchen, master bedroom and master bath. Robin sent Nathanial, Bryon and Adan over to the house to find out where the problem was. They found out there was improper installation on where the tracks were installed to the house (roof). Did not even take a day to fix. The very next day, it rain! No leaks, so far. Rose gave me a call the next and we settle. I will definitely use their services again and I'll gladly refer their services if any asks. Kudos to the whole team! Thank you on a job well done and appreciated.

Solar system warranty

Jay was outstanding contacting me about my Tesla power wall that was having an issue that he discovered by monitoring my system. He took care of all the warranty information required to have my Tesla power wall replaced. Nick arrived at my house and was extremely professional discussing what he would be doing with the equipment that needed warranty work completed. Before I even realized it Nick had replaced my Tesla power wall and had my system back up and running. Outstanding service from both Jay and Nick representing A1A solar. I will always recommend them for installation of a new system or warranty repairs.

Excellent Project Management with Fantastic Communication

A1A Solar was instrumental in getting us to our goal of having solar power generation. This was an easy project for me, as the client, since A1A Solar handled everything from planning and permitting to installation. My to-do list was not increased due to this project, and the solar panels were installed quickly and easily.

New to Fernandina Beach and looking for long term savings.

We moved into the Fernandina Beach area in July 2022. We were in communication with several solar installers. After contacting A1A we met with Sean Smith (Senior Solar Consultant). Sean walked us thru the process, explaining in detail the advantages of going Solar. His confidence, friendliness, and overall expertise on the subject convinced both my wife and I to go with A1A. The installation went as planned, with a minor issue discovered at the final walk thru however Sean made sure it was followed up on making this a happy ending review! I recommend this company for anyone looking to have Solar energy panels installed.

Very Happy

I have had my system installed now for about 1 and a half years. No issues with the system and we have had power outages and I never knew. Sean was very helpful in getting the system I wanted. I have a neighbor that installed a solar system with another company and he has had nothing but problems.

Superb Installation and Customer Service

If anyone out there is considering getting Solar for their home, don’t hesitate and give A1A Solar Contracting a call now! I would give A1A Solar Contracting 10 stars if I could but the system limited me to only 5. I had an excellent experience with having A1A Solar Contracting install my Tesla solar system on my house. It all started with Chris G. coming by the house; he was very professional and was not a pushy salesman. He provided a very informative presentational of my proposed solar system, the benefits, with sound recommendations based on my needs and goals for renewable energy. He took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly and stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process. Ellen C., Angie R., Virginia J., John C., and Cliff L. did an excellent job of designing my Tesla Solar system. Use of the Bodhi App made it so easy to keep track of the entire process and progress of my project. It also served as a one-stop shop to communicate with everyone as well. They took care of all the essential behind-the-scenes paperwork with the engineering, drawings, county permits and net metering documentation with FPL. Once the work started, A1A Solar sent out a team of expert technicians. Nick, Carlos, Warren, Nate, and Josh came out and did a beautiful job of installing my 65 panels, 6 Tesla Powerwalls (4 Powerwall + and 2 Powerwall II) and 2 Gateway 2’s. The installation of all the equipment was clean and very impressive. They connected my system to my Tesla App without any issue. Nick, Carlos, Warren, Nate, and Josh worked fast and efficient; I definitely appreciated the fact that they took the time to explain everything that they were doing with daily onsite updates. With the complexity of my system, it took multiple trips to get everything set to perfection. The technicians did a thorough job of ensuring that everything was configured and operating at peak performance. Thanks John, Nick and Carlos for coming out that last day for everything that you did, it was great having you out here. Pete, I wanted to thank you for coming out and taking the time to introduce yourself. I can see the pride that you have in your team and your company. I truly appreciate everything your team has done and we are 110% satisfied with everything. Like I mentioned before, the installation is impressive and worth every penny. I’ve already spoken to a lot of my neighbors and gave them your business cards; if they are smart, they’ll call you soon. Thanks again, Tony P.
