Doc C.

Yesterday, Jayson was the utmost professional. For a long period of time, my Enphase system was not connecting to my home Wi-Fi, so he was quite patient enough in providing his technical assistance which resulted in successfully reestablishing Internet connectivity. Keep up the outstanding work, Jayson!

Latest bad review thumbs down

Kevin Skelly | Jacksonville, Florida | 12/15/2022

Update to previous review (10/3/22)

After nearly a year, my system is finally working as advertised. During this past year Generac identified that one of their solar panel parts was defective and needed to be replaced. Those replacement parts were finally made available and installed in my system in early December. I cannot fault A1A Solar for installing the faulty parts so I am changing the previous rating to 3-stars. IF you plan to go solar, which I still believe in, and you contract with this company I have a couple of recommendations. First, be proactive in learning about the system you order and don't be afraid to contact the manufacturer (in my case Generac) with questions. If you have an issue with your system, stay in touch with the contractor until it is resolved. The company owes you that until the system operates as advertised. A1A still needs to work on their communication with the customer.

I just had 30 panels and two Tesla powerwalls installed and it was an excellent experience. They actually got to my project about 2-3 weeks earlier than expected. Warren, Josh, Nate and CJ were all so nice, competent and hard working. They were very patient in explaining everything to me and the final inspection went well. I will absolutely use them again for any work I need in the future!

100% Completely and Totally Satisfied!!!

A1A Solar Contracting out of Jacksonville, FL recently completed a solar project on my house to include installation QCell Panels and Tesla Powerwalls. I can't be happier! From contracting to installation, the process was seamless and simple. Chris, the Sales Manager, came to my house where we sat down and developed my personalized solar project and answered all questions. He took the time to run through different scenarios I had, and we put together a proposal that fit my exact needs and specifications. Within the hour, I had my custom proposal in my hands and was ready to commit. From there Virgina, the Permitting Specialist, took care all of the city/county and HOA permits. Extremely easy on my part. I only had to send her a couple of papers and she did the rest. After the permitting process was complete, installation was scheduled shortly thereafter. Nate, CJ, and Alejandro installed the panels flawlessly and Nick and Carlos were the electricians that completed the electrical work to perfection. The entire install team was amazing, and the final completed project was sharp and stunningly beautiful. No corners were cut, nor were any steps skipped. The install team took the extra time needed to address all of the fine details in their work to include caulking the celling where the electrical wires went into the roof and removing even the smallest wire that was on the ground after the work was completed. Overall, if I would give them 10-stars I could, but since the rating only goes to 5 stars, 5 superstars it is. Without a doubt, I would highly, highly recommend A1A Solar Contracting to anyone in the market for Solar as I know you won't be disappointed! With that said, I'd like to give a big shout out to the entire A1A Solar Team and thank you for all the hard work you all did on my solar project! I can't be happier with my choice and I'm grateful I trusted you all with my Solar needs!

Tim and Alejandro were fantastic! They arrived by 10am and let me know they needed access to the attic. They were done by 3pm. They cleaned up after themselves. Installed the system to code. Tim explained how it all works. The guys were friendly and they were excited for us to have our solar installed. Went an extra step with the meter by adding tape to let us know when the meter gets switched out. Thank you!!! A1A Solar has been a very good experience.

Terrible Experience

Just got done with their "salesperson" "Jayson" who knew nothing about solar and wasted my time. Turns out he was in the Philippines. This "local" company could only provide a salesperson who they contract with on the other side of the plant. The presentation was copied from other solar proposals I had received. It was clear this company is not serious.

Reply from A1A Solar Contracting, Inc: Our goal has always been to help educate our customers on solar PV and energy storage systems, so they can make an informed decision. We regret that you did not have a positive experience with Jayson. Jayson is a new member of our inside sales team. Based on your feedback, we have provided him with more training. For the record, all salespeople and installers are employees of A1A Solar. We do not outsource or subcontract either function. We have always had and continue to have an outside sales team in Jacksonville who are available to make calls in person. We would welcome the opportunity to have one of our outside sales reps work with you to answer your questions and design a solar PV system that meets your needs.

Additional power and storage in S Georgia

First - A1A Solar did a great job! Project description: This was a rather complex project. It involved 3 phases: - Moving of 33 existing solar panels (originally from a different installer) from the garage roof to the roof of the main house, - Re-construction of major parts of the garage roof (not solar related), - Installation of 15 additional solar panels on the newly built garage roof, and 2 additional Tesla PowerWalls. This was not your every-day install. Still, they worked with me through the planning process and I was confident this will be a success. The planning started in February 2022, and after permitting and scheduling, the 1st phase started in May. The crew showed up with 3 trucks and a lift, and quickly went to work. It took them 3 1/2 days to move 33 existing panels from the garage roof to the roof of the main house. Even though the system was originally installed by someone else, they brought it back to live. Two inverters did not respond - but the crew came back and fixed a faulty connection. The garage roof reconstruction took place in June / July, by a 3rd party. The new install happened in August and took 3 days, plus a few hours re-work since some electrical parts were not immediately available. The system went live yesterday and is working perfectly. The crew came across as very competent and professional; and they really seem to be enthusiastic about Solar! The work was of top quality. I would recommend A1A Solar any time. Also, if something should go wrong, I'm confident A1A Solar will come out and fix things quickly. So I want to say thanks to Sean for planning and consulting, and especially to the install crew Bobby, Tim, Warren, Ben and Josh for a job well done. Also, last not lease I want to thank Angie from billing for prompt responses, and Sierra from planning and scheduling, for being patient with me. Thanks again, all the best, Mike

A1A Customer Service is top notch

I got a request for some solar panel documents from my Home Owner's Insurance provider, and I reached out to A1A Solar Customer support for assistance with tracking down the documents. Virginia Jada was the permit specialist who helped me out, and she did a fantastic job. Virginia got me all of the documents that I needed, and even helped me to submit a transfer document that I didn't know about. With Customer Service as good as Virginia Jada's I would happily go to A1A Solar with all of my solar panel energy related needs. Thanks for all of your help Virginia, keep up the amazing work!!

Great Solar Company that values customer service & quality

They sent over a crew(Warren Davis, Ben Best, Josh Clark, Nate & Tim S.) that were very knowledgeable & passionate about the work that they do. All throughout the install, they always took that extra step to make sure their work look clean. For example, when they had to run an electrical conduit from my 2nd story roof to my electrical box below, they made sure to run it right beside the rain gutter opposite the street to make sure people from the road do not see the conduit running down the wall to give a cleaner look. They did little things like this all throughout the installation always careful to take the aesthetics into consideration even if they had to go that extra step. I also cannot say enough about the team(Cliff Little, Ellen Castle, Sierra Branch, and Virginia Jada), that worked behind the desk, always keeping me updated and were quick to address any request I made or concerns I had. Last but not least, I would like to thank the owner himself (Mr. Pete Wilking; who I mistook for a solar salesman.....lol! Sorry about that) for coming out to my home to make sure the job was done correctly.

Best installers around

A1A has been amazing during this install process. Great communication through emails and calls when needed. They answered every question I had. Bobby Sligh and Ben Best have gone above and beyond. Everything was installed the way I wanted. Super clean, no roof penetrations just the tracks. Amazing work. Definitely coming back to them for any upgrades to the system. Thank you guys for making the process easy and affordable. A+. Highly recommended.
