Great Experience

I found out about AMECO through online research. I decided to go with them. Everyone I worked with was as thorough as they come and extremely knowledgeable. I had two crews for installation. The first crew reroofed a portion of my existing roof. From the get-go I would receive daily updates from the project manager. He always called to keep me posted about the progress after the crew left for the day. I am very knowledgeable about home construction and when they were finished with the installation I would never have known that they were there at all. They were very clean and I am very happy with the work that they did. The crew that installed my solar panels was also very professional. I asked them lots of questions and they patiently answered everything and took time to explain how everything works. I 100% recommend AMECO

Latest bad review thumbs down

Nick L | Rancho Cucamonga, California | 11/24/2022

Good at first, then the problems started.

They are not c39 or solar licensed with CSLB. My solar was installed by them on Aug 2021. I had no idea this was the case because frankly, I am a first time homeowner and their salesperson (Robert Sarai) who worked for them for 4 years at that time was excellent. The last two time it’s rained since the installation, I started to notice water marks on the ceiling. At first it was a small mark I so assumed it was something I simple never noticed. Then the 6 inch watermark/ ceiling damage became about 2 feet in diameter this past Oct 2022. The damaged area is directly below the solar panel and installation area. I decided to contact them to come by and they send someone out. I wasn’t home and had a neighbor come over. The person who came appears to be a subcontractor who related information to the company. They started moving the panels around without asking and also went into the attic to check. They denied anything was wrong with the installation and said the damage was not from them. They failed to mentioned that their was a broken panel. As soon as I got home, I went onto the roof to check and noted that their were multiple roof tiles that were poorly repaired around the solar area. I also noted 5-10 nails around and under the solar. I bought the house in Aug 2019 and all broken tiles were replaced. This was checked by our inspection guy. The last people to be on the roof were the Ameco solar team, so clearly they had broken these tiles. Also, I realized because I had a been on the roof or had anyone check their work, there idd as no way for me to know if the broken solar panel was there from the beginning. I asked ameco solar to send me a quote for the leak and panel repair and they sent me a quote for a full re-roof, $49,979 and said the panel would cost $1000 if done with the reroof, if not it’s $1750. Basically, they are unwilling to take ownership of the roof leak and broken panel. I’ve had three other quotes for the repair and was quoted less than a tenth of the cost from c39 licensed roofers. Ameco solar according to the CSLB are B and C10 licensed (general contractor and electrical). Unlike a company like Sunrun, ameco does not have c39 or solar licenses. Imagine that a solar company that does not have a license specializing in solar and in roofing. Wow. I can’t believe I trusted them to do work on my roof! You live, you learn. I am still awaiting for this situation to resolve and hope in the meantime, it doesn’t rain, so that my ceiling and attic doesn’t continue to be damaged from the leak!

Ameco installed our 8kw system earlier this year. Great communication and they installed the system in a day. They used a sub contractor for the actua install, but all went well.

Completely Inept and unresponsive

Contracted 6/22/22. Took until 10/13/22 to pass inspection. Made 4 trips to site to install, each time the crew showed up without the necessary parts so they had to come back again. Destroyed the concrete tile on my roof. The installers were in fact subcontractors qualified to do electrical work but not roofing. Ameco did not advise that they were going to use a subcontractor. After inspection and final pmt. on 10/13/22 Ameco failed to get the Permission To Operate certificate from PGE leaving me with an inoperable system. Ameco also failed to set up the Enphase app leaving me unable to monitor my system and see if is working as specified. Ameco also has failed to repair the window broken during installation as of 10/31/22. My conclusion is that Ameco is unprofessional, unqualified and untrustworthy.

Ameco Solar

I was connected with AMECO through the SoCal Edison Marketplace partner Electrum. The project manager, Angie, kept me informed with regular updates from start to finish. The installation did a great job and answered all my questions about the installation, they also did a great of clean-up afterwards, which was much appreciated, Very happy with results and would recommend them to anyone considering a solar installation.

Smooth and on-time project!

I was connected with AMECO through the SoCal Edison Marketplace partner Electrum. Everyone I worked with at AMECO was reliable and friendly. The project manager, Angie, kept me informed with regular updates as my project worked its way through planning, city permitting, installation, and utility approval. We are very happy with results and would recommend them to anyone considering a solar installation.

Ameco Solar - I would recommend!

After interviewing six solar companies, we purchased our solar system (not a lease) from Ameco. From our initial sales call with Thomas, to the prompt & polite follow up emails with answers to our many questions, to the installers, and to the final emails, instructions and calls with Angie, everything went very well. Ameco matched the price of a competitor we were considering, and moved as quickly as they could to get everything handled. It can feel like a slow process as you wait for permits, inspections, and Edison to turn it on - but our system was complete within the estimated time frame. We've only been connected to Edison for about 2 weeks, but so far so good! I would recommend this company for Solar.

Ameco Terrible | Pasadena, California | 09/15/2022

Terrible; Fails to Produce Suff Energy, Warranty Ignored

Awful, nightmare. Started this July 2021, broken promises, refusal to honor warranty, unprofessional, energy production promised but unmet. Told that panels would cover my year's electricity, in full. Only covers 1/2 to 2/3. Energy production suddenly drops by 50%. Call Ameco, given excuses, useless info, refuses repeated requests to send out tech to examine, resolve. Told nope, but we can sell you more panels. Feel totally ripped off, abandoned. Took so long to install, started this July, installed end of Dec. Their main tech speaks nary a word of English, so never knew what was happening. The "project manager" never even came to my house. When finally installed and ready to activate, they made me, disabled guy w/ cane, with no knowledge of this stuff, go out, push buttons, levers, etc, and of course, didn't work properly. So unprofessional. Now I'm screwed, paying monthly on $29,000 loan for about 15 yrs, with a system that isn't working and Ameco has basically told me to go screw myself. Heartless. Cruel.

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!

The solar panel is incredibly simple to schedule and install. I purchased a wonderful solar panel for an affordable rate. The installation process was quick and simple. The staff service was outstanding. They walked me through the pricing thoroughly.
