You can't go wrong with AES. Aur and his competent crew have installed grid intertie systems on two of my houses. The whole process from beginning to end went smoothly with almost nothing needed from me. One was entirely installed over the weekend. I couldn't be happier with the systems which are producing enough energy to make my electric bill usage $0 some months. Saving money while offsetting carbon emissions never felt better. Having a healthy planet is not just important for future generations' physical health but also mental health.

Extremely professional from start to finish!

The ground work for locating AES solar was completed by our next door neighbor. He had run through the companies that were available in our area and the pros and cons of each. He picked AES as the company of his choice and had solar panels installed on his property. That peaked our interest as we have been contemplating it for some time. So, since all the ground work of locating a reputable company was done, we called AES for a estimate and proposal on hooking us up with solar energy. Upon our initial consultation, we were pleased that all our questions could be answered. In addition, they carried through on installation deadlines. The installation was done extremely professionally and courteously by all staff members. Careful attention was made by the crew not to tear up existing lawn and pastures. AES came back to fill in the lines created by trenching and did a great job. I highly recommend this company. Reducing our carbon footprint was the main accomplishment here and AES did a great job helping us with that.

Excellent customer service

Some of the reasons I went with AES were because they are totally local and also because the man who I first talked with and got a quote from kept checking in while I was waiting for some house-stuff to finalize. He was not pushy, nor was he annoying. He was patient, answered all of my bazillion questions - sometimes twice because I'd forget, and stuck it out with me for months. I got quotes from two or three other places and one of them followed up with me once and the others didn't follow up at all after I'd told them that I had to wait until I got done with the house stuff. All of them came recommended and I'm sure they do good work, but I'm glad I went with AES.

Sales through completion 5 star

I met with 4 different companies with site evaluations with 3. AES is a local business. AES sales personnel were very knowledgeable answering all questions I presented. AES was very competitive in pricing that I had obtained. , The application process including fees to Ameren, installation, and scheduling of witness testing was all completed by AES.

Great Company to do Business With

They are the best there is in our area: knowledgeable, helpful, patient with novices like me. They did the job on time, with minimum disruption. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in solar energy production.

All the AES employees seemed invested in providing solar

Our initial reason for selecting AES was their cooperation while we continued to refine our system requirements, ultimately overhauling the design 3 times during the process. Not once was there any hint of frustration evident except with being unable to provide technical information requested from a manufacturer of my choice. All of the employees were polite, considerate and efficient during the installation process.

The experience with them was excellent.

The reason(s) I chose them, was a variety of factors. Very knowledgeable, they were local, answered any and all questions that I had. Quick to figure out my exact needs and what was sensible for me. Very enjoyable doing business with them, and becoming part of their family.
