Latest good review thumbs up

Professional and Competitive

I have had a great experience working with PPM on my residential roof-mount array, beginning with the fact that their sales model is not pushy or predatory. After negotiating industry wide component supply issues, PPM stuck to their schedule and had the panels up in two days. Staff were courteous and knowledgeable. We’re thrilled to have solar powering our home.

Company takes customer satisfaction seriously

UPDATED July 8, 2020: The company struggled to meet a surge in demand during 2019 as a result of the tax incentive reduction taking effect in 2020. As a result, my project was delayed but, important to note here, it was delivered prior to the 2019 year-end, allowing me to take full advantage of the tax benefit. Following the installation, I was contacted by PPMs co-owner Jason Gonos, who wanted to hear my concerns and take feedback how they could do to improve customer service and project management. Honestly, that personal follow-up is a good indicator that PPM is serious about improving operations and delivering on its customer satisfaction commitment. I would use their service again and regularly recommend them to my neighbors interested in solar.

Reply from PPM Solar: Hi Jerry,<br /><br />We are very sorry for the delay that you experienced. 2019 was an extremely busy year for us and some timelines got stretched and we did our best to get everyone installed in a timely manner. We hope the quality of work that we have done for you outweighs the delays you experienced in the long run. Please let us know if we can help in the future in anyway.<br /><br />Thank you,<br /><br />The PPM Team

Superior Product & Company

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Could not be happier! The whole team from sales, design, installation and support! Superior knowledge and very detailed oriented. The installation team was thoughtful, polite and did fantastic job. Special thankyou to Alex Khokhlov (Director), and Omid Ahmadi (Operations Manager) - great to work with and would gladly do it again.

Very Thorough Proposals

When shopping for a solar system I took proposals from a number of established local companies. All of them seemed knowledgeable and were in a similar price range. What led me to choosing Power Production Management was that their proposal package was more detailed than the others, including the specific models and numbers of panels, inverters and mounting system. When I had some questions about system sizing they also sent me a proposal for a smaller setup. This made it easy to look up information about exactly I would be getting and consider adjustments. Everyone I interacted with was quite pleasant and responsive. Waiting for an engineering package took a bit longer than predicted but the rest of the installation went smoothly. I look forward to seeing next year if the system's annual production matches their estimate, but for the past several weeks it seems to be working as expected. I would gladly recommend PPM to anyone looking for an installer. Disclosure: I was offered a small gift card to share my honest experience.

Great company to work with

Electricity is not my forte. Everyone was so patient with me from beginning to end. From Mike to Angel and all his crew. They were all super nice. Had a bit of a snag with getting it connected but that was Putnam County and Clay Electric not communicating. Nina was so good keeping me informed. The Powerwalls we’re on back order. Nina gave me constant updates so I didn’t feel like I was forgotten. When they came in they Kelly was here in no time to install them. Again, so patient with my questions and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Omid came out for the final soon after to make sure I understood everything. Told me if I ever had any questions to call him. He make me feel like they are still there even after the sale. The only thing I wish they had done is tell me the Powerwalls were on back order when I ordered the system.

Great Company, Great Product, & Wonderful Experience

PPM Solar installed my roof-based solar system in the fall of 2020. I have had it up and running for well over a year and during this period my solar system has supplied 100% of my homes electricity needs, which includes a heated pool and spa and an electric car. In fact, I have had surplus power that I was able to get a credit back from FPL at the end of the year. The PPM folks who installed my solar system were conscientious, thorough, considerate, and extremely professional. Mark answered all my questions, and there were many, happily and patiently and offered me insightful feedback on the best systems available and my best options for getting the best system at the best price. In the end, I went with REC panels and Enphase microinverters. I liked the system so much that I bought stock in Enphase. I would highly recommend getting a solar system. I got a wonderful tax credit and PPM was able to connect me with the Clean Energy Credit Union, which financed my system at a very competitive interest rate. All in all, I would say do your homework and research because I did, and I found that PPM Solar offered me the best price on the best system and the entire process was seamless. I think if you are serious about installing a solar, then a call to PPM would be very prudent, and I know that you will be happy that you did.

Excellent Service--Excellent Results

This was a good process from my first contact to completion. The marketing team simply provided information (options, timing, cost, process). They never pushed. On visual inspection, they noted that my roof was old (I had it scheduled for replacement) and that there were shading issues (I had tree trimming scheduled also). They did not want to install a system on an old roof or in a situation that would not be productive. They kept us informed throughout the design and installation, so I knew what to expect and approximately when. The workers were courteous, efficient and responsible (taking off shoes when they had to enter the house for ethernet connection cable). The system (Tesla solar panels) is now operational and it produced more power than consumed during the first full month. Two Power Walls were installed last week. Just to see what would happen, I put them in the "self power" mode and they have 100% supplied all energy--including AC, cooking, clothes dryer--at night while never dipping below 50% charge. This gives me confidence that I can ride through any extended outage with minimal disruption to our lifestyle. If you have good access to sun, the panels make a lot of sense from both an environmental and economic view. Power Walls (batteries) are more of a security (against outages) feature. In south Florida, we lost power for 19 days after a hurricane, so power for your refrigerator and a few fans and lights can be a big deal. Just for information, the panels will produce at 10-15 percent on a "no sun" day; so we could keep critical loads running indefinitely. If you're in the service area, check out Power Production Management. They will give you the straight story and there will be no surprises if you choose to use their services.

We dreamed of achieving a smaller carbon footprint, while also maintaining a reasonable budget. We absolutely required the perfect blend of professionalism, customization, clarity, integrity, all while keeping our money local. We had no idea how above and beyond all of our dreams PPM would prove to stride! Please, if you've even the slightest glimmer of an idea to install solar, of utilizing the power of the sun, while also saving tremendously on your power bill, do yourself a favor and place your complete trust in Alex Khoklov and the entire crew at PPM. They are simply the best in their field. They will spend the time calculating and analyzing angles to design the most productive solar system for your unique space. The employees are highly educated and trained to efficiently install and seamlessly connect your home to the grid. Before you know it, you will feel like you have not only completed a project to enhance the value and efficiency of your home, but you will have gained family. The only question is...do you really want to keep paying that outrageous "August in Florida" power bill? I didn't think so! You deserve to "Go Solar!"

POWER FROM THE SUN

overall was a good experience I rated this a 4 star, could have bee 5 star but to supply chain problems and lack of prompt replies to my request to keep us updated. Need to step up keeping the customer in the loop. I would recommend Power Production Management.

Great north-central Florida solar contractor

The team at PPM was a pleasure to work with and I am very happy with my decision to partner with them on a solar and storage system. I felt cared for throughout the entire process, from the initial sales and system design conversations with Mike and Omid, to the permitting and installation scheduling chats with Nina, all the way to the install and close-out visit with Kelly. Thank you PPM for your diligence and quality work to make my solar and storage system a reality!

We had an excellent experience with PPM. The salesperson was very good at explaining variables and helping us choose the proper system. The PMs communicated every step of the way and the install crew was efficiently in and out. Would have no hesitation in providing a recommendation.
