Planet Solar was one of the best companies I have ever worked with. I looked around and asked around for a good solar company. Planet Solar was recommended to me by a friend and I made the call. Marilyn was my first point of contact and she solidified my decision to use Planet Solar. She was thorough and knowledgeable and very easy to talk with. I had done some initial system size estimates based on everything I knew. Once I spoke to Marilyn, she designed the correct size system and actual told me I didn't need as big of a system as I had estimated. Once we agreed on the details, a contract was drawn up and work began very quickly. They pulled all the necessary permits, ordered all of the supplies and kept me in the loop the entire time. Installation was quick and professionally done. They were able to go through the attic which minimizes the conduits on the outside of the house. The workers were all professional, polite and always cleaned up their mess. A few short weeks later, I was producing electricity. The only low I have about going solar, I wish I would have done it sooner.

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.
