Horrible install experience and customer service
Talked a good game and everything started fine - but took them several attempts to get city permit signoff, as they kept missing things and not doing install properly. Then they messed up wiring to my house thermostat (the did it originally at start of install and now again after they "finished" install) and now won't address - one week after install and the second time they did this during the process. Also note you can't get through to customer service and get anyone live-hard even to find an email address for them. Doesn't matter though, as they don't respond to voicemails or emails at all it appears. Been over a week with both a VM and emails and NO ONE EVER has contacted me back. Very concerned about what will/won't happen when warranty issues come up. Don't believe any positive reviews or their slick website. Avoid OC solar.

OC Solar Got the Job Done Well
We used EnergySage to find them, but the reality is that we watched them do an installation down the street on our neighbor's house, and it looked really good. They were quick and clean, so we felt confident going with them. Things took a little longer than expected-- they were very busy-- so we missed the 2020 tax credits, but the system was installed and activated in a reasonable amount of time, and it's now earning us credits on our electric bill. Overall, I'm currently very pleased with Orange County Solar.

Orange County Solar is great, reliable and extremely professional. Ashton was very helpful in answering all the questions we had pre and post installation. Their installation crew was great and they completed all the work in a timely manner.

We did our research and made the best possible choice choosing Orange County Solar. They informed and prepared us every step of the way. They were efficient, timely, and competitively priced. The level of attention to our needs for both installation and service was 1st class. Their team was available and responsive. We highly recommend them.

Found OC Solar on Yelp and worked with Ashton. Seems like a company local to Huntington Beach. Ashton was very helpful and responsive during the whole process. They were also very patient working on an issue brought up by our roofer (we were getting a new roof at the sam time). We only had 12 panels and they showed up for full days until everything was done. Even though getting permit and final sign-off took a lot of waiting on the city, we were kept up to date on the status of each step. Wonderful company to work with, they even offered to help a friend of ours who was having trouble with a different solar company. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.

Love to do business this way
OC Solar installed my solar panel system and I couldn't be happier with the way they do business. I selected them among the many solar installers in Orange County because of the very timely and competent response to Internet inquiries and competitive quote. Instead of scheduling a marketing interview like other companies, they supplied all of the information I needed and completed the contract over the internet. I got just the details about the equipment and installation with no 'sales pitch'. This saved me time and I'm sure saved OC Solar the cost of sales people. Installation time estimates were a little optimistic but the end product is aesthetic and so far reliable. The installation crew was consistently friendly and hard working. The installation is just what was promised aside from a few delays due to nation-wide shortage of some components.

Honest Solar Team!
I interviewed over 12 different solar companies - Vincent stood out from the rest because he didn't try to sell me on how crappy other companies are but instead he made me felt very comfortable on what his team can do for my solar needs. Other companies spent 80% of the time bickering about their competitors, which is a total turn off! They were quiet, respectful, treated my roof/house like their own (they didn't bang their ladder against my wall/roof for their installation). The connection from one side of the roof to the other is extremely neat. Aside from stress-free solar installation - I want to thank OC Solar for staying competitive on prices, which was an important factor for me to decide.

OC Solar - Excellent
Vince and his crew were excellent from start to finish on our 5.5Kw solar installation in San Clemente, CA. Looks like we are never going to pay a utility bill again, and since installation we bought an electric car to boot!<br /><br />I picked OC Solar because of Vincent's (Vinnie when you become friends) great responsiveness and competitive pricing through the quote process. For quotes we chose a large national firm, a small local firm, and consider OC Solar as an Orange County regional size. Hands down Vince responded to us more quickly, acted more professionally, and quoted competitively to earn our business. OC Solar also completed installation in less than 3 weeks; we have a complete Net Metering system installed with SDGE.<br /><br />We were very concerned about financing, and he connected us with San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union which offers a 12 year loan package secured by the solar installation. Vince's electrician also came back a week after completion to install a 220 dryer plug for a new electric car charger.<br /><br />Now we are happily monitoring our solar production on the SolarEdge microinverter and inverter technology, and we are very happy. I highly reccomend OC Solar to anyone wanting to install and own their solar system!<br /><br />Scott Hornbeak, age 63
