Latest good review thumbs up

DEPR SP | South Pomfret, Vermont | 04/29/2022

I am very happy that my solar panels are on the back side of my home not on the ground. It is great not to have to pay an electric bill each month and that I am helping to help the environment in a small way.

Fast install, slow responsiveness (WFH = 'barely work')

As far as I know my panels are high quality, and the technicians who installed the panels were fine and frankly, very efficient. However, this product was completely misrepresented and despite attempts to have any real sit-down discussion, this company left me hanging under the guise of "Zoom calls" and "remote work" - which from what my interactions seemed to be, meant barely working at all. It was impossible to get a hold of the sales person by just making a phone call. Getting a barrage of contracts and details only in digital format is not useful. And all my quotes for the product - now that I've done all my down payments in cash, and got the solar loan, etc - were wrong. They seemed to completely misunderstand or misrepresent the way the solar credit works, and there's no way I could've had a loan at the amount they quoted me. I have checked with the bank, and my tax preparer. I'm furious and of course, when I brought it up, nobody's available by phone. The most frustrating, and infurating thing, is, when you are a regular person who works inside your office, every day, and have to go on as usual, you literally have no tolerance for the BS of offices that are work from home, and ok with nobody ever being available during normal phone hours. I'm thinking I may make a claim in court because the way they proceeded feels so willfully incorrect. Their phones will ring and ring and ring and ring and ring out, like it's 1977 and I'm calling a newspaper. What. The. Hell? Also - sales seems, in retrospect, clueless, and their marketing materials are outright lying. They repeatedly called it a tax rebate, and 'instant credit' and lo and behold, it's not those things, it's an offset. It can't be applied to my loan, I had supplied them all my info to verify this back when we were figuring it out at the start, and now I'm over my head in my debts now. Not a good experience. Aside from setup. The contractors seem good. No thanks SunCommon!

Great service and knowledgable

From the first meeting, when I was the only one to show up on a cold and snowy eve to learn more at a seminar, to the estimating and installation process of the PV system, and then a year later adding a Powerwall Battery , the folks at SunCommon have all been helpful, professional, and clearly excited about the work. They approach the work as a mission first, and then a business. (The Powerwall was delayed because of product availability, which was not their fault, but the panels were installed and commissioned in a timely manner, so I'm giving 5 stars for schedule anyway)

So happy going green!

From my first conversation with Nick to the efficient setup crew, I have been pleased with the process of installing solar on my roof. My first bill has come - for March I'm already looking at big savings. Great company!

So far so good

SunCommon just installed the system and I am so proud. This house dates back to the Civil War and now it is ready for the 21st century. merry

Charged Up

It's been 5 years since we made the decision to switch to solar for our home, and we couldn't be happier. While our process / goals took some time to dial in, the SunCommon team is just as much of a resource for us today as they were during our installation. Chris McLernon went above and beyond from the first site inspection, to the first day we started generating power. He made sure our needs were met with the right solutions for our home. The biggest surprise has been Chris's recommendation for our heat pump. It's awesome. Huge thanks to Chris and the SunCommon team.

9 kW Roof Solar PV System = 9,000 kWh/year

Thank you Kevin Lehman and SunCommon for helping Heidi and I go solar in 2019 with a 9.0 kW rooftop system that has produced 9,000 kWh annually! This has effectively cut our electricity cost from $0.185/kWh down to $0.09/kWh. It is very much appreciated!

Design process

This was our second time working with Suncommon, and the experience was very smooth. The project was completed earlier than we expected, and the designers were very responsive to our requests relating to panel placement and orientation. I will definitely recommend Suncommon.

More than good

With 6 weeks experience, beginning at Dec. 27, the worst of days for solar in Vermont, it has been EXCITING (true, maybe I am strange) to watch the solar contribution climb daily as the sun gains elevation, and the clouds and snow on the panels clear. Already in the first week of February I am more than meeting, recently tripling, my 24 hour electric load. Sometimes it is scary to think maybe I over-sized the system by too much! But my wintertime load is slight, and my summertime load is much larger, so we'll see. But I am so looking forward to replacing my Honda fossil (although it is the best gas car I have ever had) with an EV, and my NG water heater and HVAC with heat pumps. The SunCommon crew was great, worked with me through every aspect, rolling with the changes and challenges, ahead of schedule and on-budget. Tip of the hat to JT Lukens and Ryan DuBois, my initial and principal contacts.
