Excellent Service and Product

From the time Rick came to give us a thorough overview of the system, through the instillation by a great crew, to the final wrap up meeting, we could not have been happier with the service and product. We are now online and enjoying the benefits of Solar generated power. We would not hesitate to recommend APS Solar.

Residential Installation

APS Solar helped us decide which size installation (how many panels) would be best for us. They went on the roof to help select the best location of panels. Interfaced with PG &E and County Officials to obtain proper permits and permission to operate. Installation was completed efficiently. We are very satisfied.

Great company

We could not be happier than with the job done by APS. They were accurate with their estimates and professional in all they did. They brought in a large crew on time and were finished quicker than they said. We have finished our first year of production, and their estimate of our cost for the year was accurate within $32. We highly recommend this company.

Great Investment

My wife and I had debated over the last couple of years whether or not to install a solar system, but finally decided the price and benefit justified the decision to do so. Upon recommendations from family members, we chose APS Solar. We are very pleased with the quality of work and the ease of having it done. They did all of the paperwork, and the install only took a couple of days. We are excited to start the savings! I would recommend APS Solar.

Awesome system and installation

I chose APS Solar and Rick Burkhard as he was the most professional and knowledgeable person I spoke to in my search for a solar company. The project was completed without a single hiccup or delay, Rick explained everything about the system and it's operation in clear terms. His 10 year service and installation warranty is a great value. I found him and his staff personable and a pleasure to do business with. APS solar is highly recommended.

Gibson Family Home

Rick Burkard and his office staff headed by Mona Sims are first class people. From my first contact until the project was complete everything was done quickly and efficiently. With Rick being an electrical engineer all phases of the installation, permits, etc were done expertly.Rick found problems in the house wiring system that he repaired at no extra cost to me even though I had requested the additional correction after the bid was submitted. His comment to me was 'it need ed to be fixed, it was a danger to you and your household'.IOf you live in the Sonora area you wil not find a better company to install your solar. thanks APS Solar

Very Happy

The people at APS Solar were very helpful in making sure I received the best system for my needs. I had two possible locations to install the system. Rick took the time to do shading and energy production calculations on both locations as well as a cost analysis. He then explained all of the information gathered so I was able to make an informed decision on what size system to install and where to install it. The installation crew was very professional and completed a very clean looking installation. My situation took a little extra time to receive the permit to operate from PG&E. APS Solar stayed in contact with me as well as PG&E until everything was in place and I was "on the grid." Thank you very much to Rick, Mona, and the installation crew for a job well done. I highly recommend APS Solar!!

As a retired engineer and business analyst analyzing the benefit of installing a solar system over the past ten years I found the time was now to do so. For over two months I analyzed the benefits of purchasing versus leasing and DIY versus hiring a contractor. After a decision to purchase and hire a contractor I did extensive vetting of big companies and local contractors and decised on APS. The decision was helped by APS having more completed more than six installations in my neighborhood. Once the decision was made and a simple contract signed my solar system was up and running within 30 days. Installation started Aug 29th was completed August 31st and by Sep 1st I was<br />getting credit from PGE for excess power. The owner Rick Burkhart was a pleasure to deal with as were the two workmen, John and Bryan who completed the project.

Very happy customer

It took me a while to getting around to doing this review so I can report with a couple of years of use under my belt. System installed in early Dec 2013. We had a glitch in the system at start-up and Rick dropped everything to apply all his effort to get us going. It turned out to be a faulty connector which was easily corrected once detected. The manufacturer of the Sunny Boy Inverter was very accessible and responsive with their assistance in the trouble-shooting. Since that was sorted out we've been humming along without a hitch. We produce a bit more than we use, but exactly what Rick determined we would get from his design. Sweet!

Best in the West

If you want to go solar, then APS Solar is really the best choice. They are on time, efficient and install a great system. Mona, at the admin office, is right on top of all the paperwork necessary from start to finish. Rick fields every question you might have and he takes the time to ensure you understand the answers. The installer crew is fast and clean. They are in and out with no muss and no fuss. To top it off, the price is right. I highly recommend this company.
