Extremely happy with my choice

I considered installing solar for two years, looking into more than a dozen different installers and reading up on the various brands of panels and other hardware. I took fulI proposals from five or six different companies and chose Smart Wave Solar as the best overall choice based on products used, their design proposal, the proprietary emergency outlet, and the incredible financing they work with. I wasn't disappointed: they communicated with me at every step of the process, were very professional, and the system is working as planned. The installation is also very clean, it looks great. Diana Stutz and Celia Hanson were great to work with. They also gave me great instructions for maintenance, general use, and extra things like how to claim the solar rebate credit. I recommend them 100%.

You may still pay utility company every month

A lot of the reviews here about the sales or installation process. The level of professionalism is great. However, I didn't pay tens of thousands of dollars just to get an easy installation. The company kept calling me, asking me to write a review right after installation. I resisted because I wanted to see if the panels eventually worked for me. What I really need is being free from paying utility bills. On that front, it's disappointing. They claim to have installed enough panels to satisfy my power consumption. They have also produced data to show that the production was indeed sufficient. Yet, I continue to pay utility bills EVERY SINGLE MONTH. In July, for example, I paid $72. This is NOT what I had in mind when I signed up the deal. Now, it appears the problem is that my local utility provider buys my extra power at a much lower price than what the provider charges me for the power I use. During the day, my panels produce extra power, but, in the evening, I consume power from the utility company. nobody bothered to point that to me. So, just be aware: you are NOT going to be free of utility bills even after you get the panels.

Steve Michaels and Jane Neuman did an outstanding job managing my project from start to finish. My install was done in two days, and they handled all of the communications with Rocky Mountain Power and the city for all of the inspections and contracts that were required. In addition, Smart Wave solar was the only company that provided a backup power supply at no additional cost. It facilitates running emergency power to selected devices during unplanned power failures. I researched and requested 3 bids from other installers and found that they offered the best products with the best warranties at very competitive prices. My system is up and running and to date has performed better than expected given the reduced number of daylight hours in November and December.

I had a great experiance with Smart Wave. From the sales team being extremely avaiable for follow up questions while comparing offers, to the support and installation teams handleing all of the needed permits and applications and giving regular updates on the process and progress of the project. I always knew what was happening and what was next.

Five stars

We had a really nice solar system with battery back-up power installed a month ago by Smart Wave Solar. They do ALL of the installation; they do not sub anything out. They are a complete solar company, unlike others. From the very start, our Energy Consultant/Salesman, Steve Michels , was the best representation that Smart Wave Solar could ever ask for. After the signing of the purchase order, our project coordinator, Joriel Howcroft, consistently kept us up to date and was so helpful. This is the most professional and organized business I've dealt with. I highly recommend Smart Wave Solar to anyone

Celia Rocks!

I encountered a personal, straightforward, and professional company in an industry that is saturated with bogus information. Solar is wonky, you get what you pay for, and my independent research aligned nicely. Do your research and you'll appreciate what the company offers. Value is the game and they nailed it

Honest Company

I've met with Smart Wave Solar. The presentation was informative and was able to answer all my questions. The emergency power backup was extremely appealing. What I appreciated the most was being told that with all the trees I have solar isn't a good option for my home. I would do business with Smart Wave because they put customer satisfaction and honesty above a sale.

Seamless Solar Experience

Steve Michels and Bethany Andrews made the experience smooth sailing for me. Steve explained the benefits to solar in a clear way where I couldn’t not get solar. Solar is a great investment! Bethany went above and beyond to get my system up and running. The experience was fun and not stressful.
