Excellent service!

We have had our solar system, which was installed by EESI, for over two years now. Everything has been positive. Installation was quick and smooth. The price was competitive. There have been no problems since. I really like that the company keeps an eye on what is happening and if it is something on our end (like a disgruntled tenant who turned it off) or something technical, they are aware of it and it gets addressed without a problem. And then the SDG+E bill arrives and it says we owe nothing. That is quite delightful! EESI has treated us well!

Did my research and after interviewing a variety of companies, Empowered was our choice. I wasn't worried about the solar part of the job, solar works. I was worried about the mechanical installation as we have a unique tile roof, and replacement tiles were not available. Everyone said not to worry., I worried. End of first day we had about 30 broken tiles and I had about 10 replacements. Again they said not to worry. I already knew there were no replacements available. At the end of the install my tiles were replaced, I asked how! The answer was a 3 county search of all roof tile installers and I yhad more tiles as spares than I did to start. Talk about customer service. I still tell people that this is the first and only major job that have been able to say perfect.

Fine Job and Very Professional

When we built our house Empowered Energy Solutions designed the solar panels for our roof. They were efficient, quick, and very easy to work with. They explained how much solar we needed for the power we were expecting to use, and our annual electric bill is very low. We're thinking of buying an electric car and would definitely have them add some more solar to our system when we do so. In all the years we've had our solar system we have never had a problem. I've recommended them to a number of friends of mine, all of whom have been pleased.

EES was great to work with starting with our robust multi-Bid process and all the way through the installation to now (3 years later). Ours was a good sized project and of course issues will come up during and after installation. EES has always been very sensitive to and responsive to our needs and issues. I would recommend them to anyone considering a PV Solar System.

Creative Solutions Not Lame Excuses

Our installation was somewhat challenging due to the need to use a ground mount, avoid our septic system, stay free of shade from our mature trees, and our desire to minimize the area restricted for future use. We built our home 35 years ago and didn't have records or clear memories of the locations of water lines, wiring for landscape lighting, or our leach lines. Naturally, this led to difficulties when construction began. Empowered impressed us its response. Instead of seeing this as an opportunity to run up the cost with expensive change orders or ignore our design objectives, they went into problem solving mode. The team kept evaluating options until they found one that minimized changes to functionality, cost, and installation time.<br /><br />In the 5 years since the installation the system has been almost trouble free. It has generated 3% more power than was estimated. When we've had minor glitches or question response has been immediate and effective. We went on to use Empowered to provide solar for a retail center we own.

About Empowered Energy Solutions

Thanks for expressing an interest in Empowered! We're excited by the possibility of working with you, and want you to understand our value proposition and methodology.

Empowered is a 40-year-old full-service sustainability contracting firm. That means that we specify and implement projects to make buildings more environmentally sustainable, comfortable, and valuable. Our particular focus is specifying, financing, and implementing projects that have the best possible return on investment for our clients.

Because we're focused on projects that have superior financial performance to what is normally available in the green marketplace today, we've been forced to develop a skill set and methodology considerably superior to most of our perceived competitors. While our average perceived competitor is a solar company that will ask a building owner what their average bill is and size a solar system to match, our method is profoundly different, and achieves a fundamentally different and superior result.
