Robert 4 weeks ago

We recently put on a new Roof in March 2021. Next step is Solar- after receiving numerous bids we chose Planet Solar. The bid was the best bang for our buck- KW production was a factor with kids home all summer and thinking of the future as well. One key component in choosing them is that I went directly to there office, I met Marilyn and Ben. They answered more of my questions- I mentioned how leary I was of having holes punched into my roof, Ben took the time to show me the material they use to ensure no leaks! The installation crew was incredible, I never know how many steps it took to really get solar installed. The day after Solar I called my roofer- as you know some installers just punch holes in your roof, Planet Solar took care of mine as if it was theres- he could tell they were cautious and they didnt walk with "lead-feet" and ruin the granules on my shingles! your homework, ask your questions, then realize Plant Solar offers the expertise, and the knowledge you really need.

Solar in Redlands , over 1 month

Purchased a Planer Solar System last year. Install and roof prep was fine. Now, a year later we are still getting fairly good sized SCE bills. Asked for a solar audit, they reviewed the bills and they tersely concluded it was a tree (not sure what tree) impacting system output. If it was a tree should not have panel placement have taken that into account? Have contacted the rep to ask if panels can be relocated or augmented and he is unresponsive. After spending almost 30k for the system I’m disappointed.
