We contacted a few installers for quotes and ultimately selected MN Solar and More due to their competitive cost to install, the prior positive reviews from previous customers and the fact that they were a local MN company. They kept us updated on every part of the process through the Basecamp app and answered any questions we had. We were impressed with how organized the whole process was. They were onsite for a little more than 2 days and in that time, all materials were delivered, installed and tested. We've been using our solar panels now for a little more than a month and can track our energy production and consumption via an app on our phone(s). When we noticed one panel wasn't performing as well as the others, we contacted MN Solar and they quickly sent someone out to replace the panel at no charge. We would gladly recommend them to anyone intersted in solar energy!

Highly recommend MN Solar & More!
I was working with another highly reputable solar company and almost signed the contract. I decided to get 1 more quote to make sure their equipment and prices were in-line. I sent an email to MN Solar and they scheduled a consultation within a day. I talked with the owner and designer (Kim & Leah), and they put together a proposal that used better materials, was more efficient, fit my roof better, and was about 10% cheaper that the other contractor. I also appreciated that they didn't try to bury excessive "administrative fees" into a low interest loan like the other contractor did. It was clear that they were not just sales people...they actually design the systems and know what they're talking about, so I decided to go with MN Solar. We ran into a hiccup just before the installation began that caused a slight delay. My electrical company (Dakota Electric) was not certain I'd be able to keep my off-peak rates for my off-peak heat pump and EV Charger equipment. Solar was still pretty new to Dakota Electric (May 2021), so I needed verification from Dakota Electric before anything moved forward. Kim, Leah, and their Master Electrician spent many hours with Dakota Electric to ensure everything was set up correctly, and I was able to keep my off-peak rates. The amount of effort they provided was impressive. The entire install took about 5-6 days (it was really hot out so they needed to quit early afternoon to avoid damaging the shingles). The crew that did the install was a really good group of guys. They worked hard and did a great job, but they were also extremely friendly and fun to chat with. MN Solar did great work at a very reasonable price. They took care of all the paperwork and permits, and made the whole process effortless for me. Their customer service and follow up were great too. If you're looking at getting solar installed, make sure you get 2-3 quotes so you can compare costs, equipment, and contractors. Just make sure MN Solar is one of the contractors because they are really good.

MN Solar great experience
We signed up with MN Solar for a large project and then a smaller addition to the original. From start to finish they are fantastic to work with. CEO Kim is reachable and patiently answers all questions. Project manager Leah, Electrician Randy and office staff Bridget are equally exceptional. The installers were friendly and knowledgeable and left the property looking great. The system is doing exactly as promised. We highly recommend this company for your solar! Mike

I'm a tough customer - I want a good price, great communication and an excellent product. MN Solar delivered it all and more. I asked for multiple quotes - no problem, had questions - they answered them, my internet didn't hook up with the monitoring program - they kept at it until they found the issue. They also used a drone to design my system which I thought was pretty cool.

You should go solar with MN Solar
We had a great experience with MN solar in Saint Paul. They were friendly, responsive, and professional throughout the process. They not only installed solar panels, but did a system upgrade, new breaker panel, and EV charger. Special thanks to Randy for answering all my questions and helping triage any issues while on site.

Although there was a slow start due to the pandemic's impact on everyone involved, this team worked fast and hard. I especially appreciated that they consulted with me first regarding the installation of pipes, both on my roof and along the side of the house. I also posed questions or concerns to them and when the appropriate time came in the install process, they were sure to ask for my opinion, or point out the details I had been wondering about before continuing. It really only took them two days to do the full install and that surprised me. Once Excel got me hooked up, we were delighted to see the panels in action via our software app that we were able to download. Since the install, they have answered all of my questions and responded to all of my concerns. I look forward to the warmer months when we are cranking out more electricity and contributing more to the system.

We highly recommend MN Solar
My wife and I decided to have solar panels installed last year and got bids from 3 companies. We found MN Solar to be the easiest to work with and had a great product. We are so happy with our choice. MN Solar did a great job of being clear and transparent about the options available and the pricing. They worked with our electric utility and got us all of the incentives available. The installation was done quickly, correctly, and professionally. Now that our solar array is live, we can track our electric production with a phone app. It’s great to be able to see how our system is doing at any time from anywhere. Overall we are extremely pleased with the solar array at our home, and are so glad that we chose MN Solar. We highly recommend MN Solar for your residential solar project.

MNSolar - The only way to go Solar
My experience with MNSolar was positive in every way. The initial consultation done in person in contrast to a detached virtual meeting and that set the tone for the entire experience. This initial contact was more of an informational/educational meeting than a sales pitch and made me feel more comfortable about the decision I was making. MNSolar took care of every aspect of the project including HOA approval, the permits, and all the inspections. Communication was great. They readily answered all questions before the sale, during the project, and continued to do so after the instillation. If there seemed to be a lull in activity you had access to their Basecamp app which identified each member of the team and was the method that the team used to record every activity and could be used by the customer to see this activity and to communicate with individual team members. Projected instillation date was on target. From the moment of the contract all activities were well synchronized. Anyone considering going solar should definitely consult MNSolar before making their final decision.

Fantastic experience. They provided options, and didn't try to steer me toward a certain package, but instead provided appropriate guidance and information so I could make the best decision for me. Price was low. Service was almost perfect... when they started on the work, I wasn't given much of a heads-up. Turns out their entire team was hard at work at the Fair, basically their biggest sales opportunity of the year. They took my feedback sincerely and doubled down on their efforts. All questions and concerns were addressed quickly. The whole process was much quicker than expected. They were flexible when I needed a few days to move money for payments. The panels look amazing!! I'm so glad I didn't have to interact with XCEL at all :)

I wish MN Solar did more than Solar...
I have very few contractors I have used who I would highly recommend to anyone. MN Solar met and exceeded my expectations making adding solar to my house a completely seamless process. MN Solar installed a 5.55kw system on my house, and I couldn't be happier. From the initial contact until the final inspection and final payment, MN Solar showed extreme professionalism. If you are uncertain about how difficult the process is, I would quickly tell you that they make it as seamless as possible.
