Terrible customer service
Terrible experience. I would say look around at other companies if you can. We signed up with them at the beginning of the year and they said that’s a “perfect time to sign up so we can get our solar panels installed and crediting our power account all summer while it’s sunny to help with the bill in the winter.” Now they have pushed back our installation date twice. Even though they said we’re up to be scheduled soon. Now they have pushed installation back to the end of summer so we’re worried we’re not going to get enough credit to help in the winter. ALSO when you sign a loan from them, they give you a year before you start making payments. Now half a year has gone by and we have nothing to show for it. And the news says that the state of IL is taking forever to give out the government refund checks for installation that GRNE said would take our loan (and our payments) way down. So far all I see is that they are screwing us over on a bad deal and we’re going to pay for it. More interest and money for them if we don’t get the money from the government right? We have been pushed back twice (so far) and who knows how many more time before they of ever come out and do what they claim they will actually do. My father in law went with another company AFTER we signed up with this one. He’s had his solar panels set up and working for months now and GRNE just keeps pushing our date back. GRNE never reaches out and keeps us updated, once we sign for the loan we don’t hear from them. We have to keep emailing and asking for updates. I would suggest going with another company!!

Highly recommend GRNE
I went with GRNE for our solar install last fall based on vetting done by Solarize Chicagoland. So glad I did! I couldn't recommend them more highly. Every person I've had contact with has been professional and extremely helpful every step of the way, very conscientious and patient with all my questions. The install went great and the panels have been up and running for months now, working like a dream. Thanks GRNE!

The BEST of the BEST !
My search for a reliable Solar installer were realized by my tour of the GRNE facility in Palatine, IL. The tour and presentation by, Ryan answered all my solar questions. The ensuing quotation was fast and all my design requests were met. Eric Peterman has assembled a great team of people to work with. I was present for the installation. The crew lead by Carl, were all friendly professionals. The installation went smoothly and was finished in my time frame as promised. From permit application,construction,inspection,Com Ed net metering and investment credit application, GRNE can't be beat.

Great company to work with
June 2017 I sent out a request for proposal to put 15 solar panels on my south facing roof.<br />GRNE (Eric) was at my house the next day with 3 proposals that perfectly bracketed my request. <br />Eric and I were quickly able to get through all my questions, agree on a price, and even line up my 5 year SREC credits contract. On July 7th they installed my panels. Exactly what I was looking for.<br />The panels are beating my projected production by 5% and look great.<br />Thanks Eric and the expert GRNE installation team.<br />Regards,<br />Dan Knotter

As good as it gets!
ðŸŒžâ˜€ï¸ðŸŒž I can't recommend GRNE enough! From securing cost-effective pricing, to planning the setup, to getting the permits pushed through when the village was stalling, and finishing off with a quality install, they were there all along the way. It's a small company so you have immediate access to the people who know your system inside and out whenever you need them, and they were more than happy to put up with my many questions throughout the process. These guys really know solar, and are experts in this up-and-coming sector. Communication is spectacular, service is great, and I'm so glad that they will be servicing my system. Special thanks to Ryan, Ed, and Eric. You guys rock! ðŸŒžâ˜€ï¸ðŸŒž
