Great from start to finish

Cape Fear Solar came out and put together a project that worked for me. We were able to work out financing, installation, and inspections with no problems at all. Thanks to the whole team!

No further contact.

I had a good experience purchasing and the installation of my panels. After that there has been no contact from this company on any other maintenance services or follow up on how the system is working. I get the feeling its all about the sale, one and done. Disappointing.

Reply from Cape Fear Solar Systems: Hi there, Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. Rest assured, if you don’t hear from us, that is a good sign that your system is producing as warranted. Our system shows your solar panels have been producing as designed since installation. If your system is not producing as warranted, our service team gets a notification and will reach out to you to schedule service. A member of our team will also reach out to you on Monday to talk through our service steps, so we can be sure to meet your expectations going forward. If you ever need us, we’re just a phone call away. Sunny regards, CFSS

Very Professional Solar Company

I was solicited by a door-to-door solar company and almost committed with them, but when I proceeded to do my research, Cape Fear Solar was recommended as a reputable alternative. I called them and Caleb Timothy came to our house THAT DAY. He assured us that he was not just trying to make a sale but wanted to show us our alternatives. The Cape Fear proposal was thousands less with many more specifics. We immediately cancelled the other commitment and asked him to contact us in three months. He did call us three months later with no pressure and we decided to move forward with solar installation. The process was seamless. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and professional. Our panels were installed in December of 2023. I highly recommend Cape Fear Solar as a company and both Caleb Timothy and Christina Zeitlin in particular.

An Extremely Satisfied Customer

As a satisfied customer I highly recommend Cape Fear Solar Systems. I am a retired engineer with an interest in improving the environment and saving money on my electric bills. When I was looking at the possibility of going solar, I looked at many different companies and various solar technologies. My detailed research led me to Cape Fear Solar Systems. They have a proven track record of great customer support and excellent customer reviews. At every step in the process, they did what they promised and more. If you are thinking of going solar – do yourself a favor - call Cape Fear Solar Systems. Jerry D.

Flawless execution and support

After navigating a minefield of door knockers and shady salespeople from other solar “brokers” and after countless hours spent on research it turns out the best was just around the corner. We decided to go with Cape Fear Solar and we were absolutely astounded at the level of professionalism and attention to detail, from the initial contact, through the permitting and engineering process, through the installation and final permission to operate. The entire process has been absolutely FLAWLESS. I literally power my entire house with the sun and have made it outage proof! The $16 electric bill in perpetuity is a nice added bonus! I can’t say enough great things about Dar, Christine and the entire installation team. THIS is how solar in done!!! 5 stars. FLAWLESS.

Excellent Experience

Cape Fear Solar Systems provided excellent service. I am transitioning to a in the construction industry and am very keen on the quality of work done. The professionals who worked on my home were on time, tactful, and did excellent work. I did a quality assurance check on the roof after the installation and the work was clean. They also offer a military discount.

The easiest part of building our house

We had solar installed as we were building our house and it was easy. Cape Fear Solar took care of everything. They communicated well with the builder and had it installed on schedule. We had to wait to have it hooked up due to a delay in the building, put once they had the green light they were there to connect. They also received positive comments from the electricity company. We are now making more electricity than we need.

Great Service

We were pleased to install a 7 kW solar system with Cape Fear Solar. Their communication was great throughout the entire process, their install was efficient and coordination with local government and utility to have the system turned on was flawless. Happy we made the decision to choose a local installer.
