Outstanding Service, Knowledge & Dedication

I live in a condo unit in a 1950s neighborhood in Santa Fe, NM. The electrical service in the neighborhood and the condo is not to the newest standard, plus there was only limited exterior wall space for installing the various electrical components needed. In summary, designing and installing the system was a challenge. Prior to Positive Energy Solar, I had contacted two other local solar installation firms, who were interested in the project, but ultimately lacked the knowledge, resources, and/or dedication to come up with a design. I had given up hope that it could be done, until someone shared their positive experience with Maria Hondros, a Sales Advisor at Positive Energy Solar, who exceeded all my expectations. She was extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and well connected to come up with a design that took all the constraints into consideration. At one point the design was about to be determined as not feasible due to some technical calculations. She took it upon herself to review the calculations and detected an error in the spreadsheet that was used by others in the calculation. The project manager and installation crew were also a joy to work with. In summary, I can highly recommend the entire team at Positive Energy Solar, and in particular the Sales Advisor Maria Hondros. Without her knowledge and dedication, I don’t believe I would have been able to get solar panels installed.

Excellent Customer Service

Our experience with Maria Hondros, Zach Hall and the rest of the crew was nothing but positive. They are all professionals, who explained the process and answered all of our questions and concerns thoroughly. It's not a quick process, but we feel certain it will be worth every penny. My mom and her husband had the same positive experience. We all highly recommend Positive Energy Solar.

A pleasure to work with!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this company. All of their employees are friendly, courteous, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. They did all the work in getting me through the extremely tedious process of permitting and inspections. The Sales and Project Managers were extremely helpful and answered all of my questions promptly. I highly recommend them.

A Very Professional Company

Positive Energy Solar installed a ground solar array on our property four months ago. On installation, everything worked perfectly. The array and associated electrical installations still work perfectly. The support and installation team worked perfectly, even supporting us in getting the requisite permits. They have also performed well in answering follow-up questions. I suspect it helps that they are employee owned. An all-around fine company.

Extremely Positive Experience!

I enthusiastically and wholeheartedly recommend Positive Energy Solar. I've been trying to make attempts to do my part in being environmentally responsible and was looking for a company that was equally committed and caring. From the very first interaction to the final project closeout, Positive Energy was amazing. Every member of their team that I interacted with was professional, competent, respectful, timely, and "positive" :-) My wife and I are high-maintenance, and at times probably annoying, customers, wanting to know all the details about a project, and every person at Positive Energy was patient, thorough, and comprehensive in their dealings with us. We had recently embarked on some other projects at our house (floors, painting, minor renovations), and had several frustrating issues; however, with Positive Energy Solar, everything was done right. In fact, I texted my wife a couple of times and stated about Positive Energy "this is how a company should be run!" We were approached by a couple of other solar companies in town, and I got an estimate from one of them. They did a slick sales job, but when I tried to contact them to follow up, it was a nightmare - they subcontracted everything out, had no local support, were disorganized, etc. In contrast, Positive Energy Solar, is based locally in Albuquerque and New Mexico, were always responsive, have their own sales, project management, engineers and installers (they do subcontract the roofing prep and finish, but have a good partner). Positive Energy managed the project like a real engineering project, and shared all the details with me. Special shoutout to Jeremy, Will, and Dionne (I don't recall the names of the engineers and installers) for being so helpful and professional.

I had a great interaction with the company

UPDATED: After I was confused about the bill Muhamed smoothed things out and I couldn't be happier. This company goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy, even well after the project is complete.

Positive Energy Solar Provides a Great Product

I have been very satisfied with Positive Energy Solar as my solar contractor. The installation process was a little slow, but they kept us informed about the progress all along. The biggest problem was getting inspector to the project. The installation is small, 9 panels, but it is producing 15 kwh or more each day.

Reply from Positive Energy Solar: Thank you for sharing your experience working with Positive Energy Solar, and for taking action to switch to renewable energy. We appreciate your support for local, employee-owned business. It can certainly be frustrating waiting for any permitting/inspections (especially with the added wait times due to COVID) but we appreciate your patience throughout. We're just a quick phone call away if you ever have any questions or need support for your system.

Awesome job!

They were detailed, communicative, organized and prompt. Whole process was explained in great detail and all of the milestones were hit right on time. When minor issues arose they were addressed immediately and throughly. Highly recommend these guys (especially because we have neighbors that have used other companies, and there experience was awful.) They were jealous of how easy our installation was.

Very satisfied

Awesome team at PES. I went with them after 3 neighbors had excellent experiences with this local company, as their customer service is top-notch. Muhamed (sales adviser) is super quick to respond to questions and helped us with a custom roof installation. Zack (project manager) helped us trouble-shoot several house-specific issues and the installation was prompt and problem-free. They offered a competitive price and equipped my house with a modern solar system on an on-target timeline. They navigated the PNM net-metering activation with ease and on time even during pandemic times, and set up all the paperwork I need for a tax credit. System works great! I said goodbye to my electrical bill after the first month of use. Why wait?

Supremely Competent and Respectful

From our opening conversation through final installation, every interaction with Positive Energy Solar was extraordinarily pleasant. The team is knowledgeable, kind, clear, honest, and respectful, and they answered each of my questions quickly and directly. The whole process felt deeply humane, and I couldn’t be more appreciative.

An Excellent Project

We have been extremely happy with Positive Energy Solar and its work over the entire duration of the project.  From our first exploratory meetings through PNM’s final meter set and inspection, the entire PES team was technically sound, focussed and efficient, and always willing to interact with us about any question. And all that within the constraints imposed by Covid-19.  Working with PES has been a uniformly excellent experience.
