Second time we had the pleasure of working with Empower, they were one of the first calls I made to check on the solar viability as we looked at our new house. Fast forward a few months and the panels are up and running and loving them. We used them at our first home back in 2013 for a solar array and for us it was a requirement at the new house. We were able to get a larger array with less panels at the new house thanks to better panels. They are great with communication and designing. They put panels on my parents house and I share their information with anyone that asks, without any hesitation

callie Hutto, 2 weeks ago

We purchased our solar panels through Empower several months ago. The sales person was informative and lead us to believe this was a great company. Too be so fooled!!!! DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS CO. The customer service is the worst!!! No one returns our calls and we sit at home day after day waiting on them with no pre-scheduled appointment. They could care less if they are wasting your time. At every turn of install, Empower has screwed up. To begin with, they installed for the wrong utility company knowing full well it was listed on the purchase order. Our installed failed twice, so far, in attempting to meet the utility standards. With this install error, they ruined our stucco and did not return to repair it. We had to have it professionally painted to repair their mess. We needed a weather cover and the delivery person not only had the wrong city but also delivered the wrong cap issued by the warehouse. He said he would return later that day and never showed or called. This is typical of this company.There is absolutely no follow through with this company and no one will return our calls to address the issues they caused by total incompetence!! They have cost us an additional 6 weeks of turning on the solar with their CONSTANT screw ups.
