Great company, great service

Great customer care and service! It's been a year since we've had our solar system installed (at our residence), and we love it. Smooth install, quick response to any question, providing solutions to any concern. Joe Hughes, who we mostly dealt with, has been great; knowledgable, responsible, responsive, attentive. Install work was clean and smooth, follow up was great! A real pleasure!

Customer Service

Some of the worst customer service I have experienced in a long time. I have been trying to get a technician to look at my system for the last 2 months, still haven't gotten one. They take days and sometimes a week just to answer an email. I am currently an extremely unhappy SunCommon customer.

An example for skilled trades everywhere!

From initial contact to actual solar installation was just over a month. It would have been faster but apparently there was a defect in the inverter (not their fault). EVERY step of the way was easy to understand, easy to communicate, and they undercut their main competition by (not exaggerating) $8,000 for a better system. I am just so thrilled with the care and professionalism from minute one with this company. Wow!

Excellent Process & Product!

Suncommon really was amazing, throughout the whole solar experience. They had the best quote of all the companies we contacted, *and* were the easiest to work with. They were with us every step, made it as easy as possible - and now our array is up and producing!

Don’t expect timely service or support

After less than a year after our installation was complete our system failed and stopped generating during peak season for generation. It’s now been offline for Almost two months and we can’t even get a time scheduled for someone to look at our system. Their priority seems to be new customers and not supporting current ones that they already got heir money from. Please consider other true local options or be at risk of paying for something that does not work.

My experience with SunCommon

About ten years ago I had a concrete slab installed with plans to build a shed. Along comes a stroke and that plan put on hold. As the years passed solar power started to get a lot of attention. I began to think about utilizing this slab for some kind of solar array My adventure with SunCommon began while driving down I-89 when I decided to stop at SunCommon headquarters to get some information. No one around except for a young lady who helped me fill out form on her office space computer. The next day I received a call and a time was set to meet with the solar. home advisor. He arrived as scheduled and reviewed my situation. I love post and beam construction and a canopy solar system was designed. By luck the post and beam canopy was a perfect fit for the concrete slab. Next came the evaluation person who did the initial layout. The foundation crew had to cut the corners of the slab off to accommodate the installation of 7ft ground screws. The concrete was thicker than anticipated which turned into quite the project. All eight screws were installed into ledge which had to be drilled. This phase of the project was delayed by extreme weather , heavy rain and lightning, and the FLOOD. My road was impassable along with many roads between Waterbury and my house, but within a few days things were repaired and ways of getting here were figured out. The erection of the post and beam canopy was done on the most beautiful day imaginable. What a beautiful structure. The foundation crew came back and did trenching and electrical conduit in pouring rain. The installation of the solar panels and associated wiring and equipment took half a day. I must say that all the people and I mean all the people were very polite, respecful of my property, extremely neat. and willing to explain and answer any questions or concerns that I had. SunCommon gets a grade 10 from me. I highly recomend SunCommon. David Bertrand

Inverter replacement

Sun Common installed my system 2017. Recently I had an inverter issue. It had to be replaced. It was under warranty. They ordered a new one and came out and replaced it. The system has been great. I would have them do it again if ever I needed one.

Outstanding Service and Value From Start to Finish

The people at SunCommon are awesome. They make the entire process of going Solar easy and even fun. I can't imagine a more enjoyable process. Their information is informative yet easy to understand. They don't confuse you with lots of technical data and facts, just plain language. If you do have a question, they take the time to fully explain the answer. There's never any pressure during the process as well. I really liked the fact that I was dealing with a local company and I also appreciated their social mission. I highly recommend SunCommon to any thinking about solar.

Wolfe pack Array

SunCommon was the second solar company I investigated and after meeting with our sales representative Nick, I looked no further. Nick was awesome in helping us to decide on a ground array versus a roof mount for all the right reasons. The design was perfectly suited for not only our primary residence, but also our summer lake house and two eventual EVs. The entire process from design to installation was clearly defined and painless. Everyone involved was very professional, respectful and involved me in the installation as to asking for my opinions for the location of hardware to meet present and future needs of the home. SunCommon is a top notch Vermont based company and I am certainly recommending them to anyone interested in solar generation.
