We knew we'd choose SmartWave from the day we met Scott. We appreciated their customer centered approach and the sentiment he shared about his experience working for SmartWave. We anticipated the process to be drawn out, but the team at SmartWave was (for the most part) communicative and worked to overcome the challenges associated with this type of installation (Xcel's role is the greatest obstacle in any case). Highly recommend.

Downgrade experience after purchase

Steve Michels, my sales representative, was incredibly helpful and responsive. His prompt and detailed answers to my questions influenced my decision, even though he couldn't provide a matching quote due to company policy. However, after transitioning to the project coordinator, response times slowed, and scheduling became challenging. On-site service appointments took weeks to schedule and no communications were made when they couldn't make it. My main concern is the system design issue. Despite ordering high-end panels, the system was designed for lower voltage arrays. This led to persistent over-voltage alerts and weeks of delays to address the issue, leaving me uncertain about potential damage to my inverter. While the on-site crews were friendly, these issues affect my overall experience. Three stars reflect the mix of positive and negative aspects. Hopeful for improvements for future customers.

Good experience

It was a good experience. There were 1 or 2 little things, however that is bound to happen with any construction project. The installers for both the new meter and the panels themselves were great and friendly.

Smart Wave Solar is Amazing!

When we decided to install rooftop solar, we checked out dozens of companies, and eventually decided to to with Smart Wave Solar. It was definitely the right decision. Our sales contact, Lindsay patiently explained the different options and the pros/cons of each. AnaLee, our project manager was awesome as well. She took our input on project design and panel layout, and kept us informed with weekly updates on project status. Smart Wave took care of all of the necessary permits and was the main point in working with the local utility for installation. Thee install process was very quick, and they even followed up, in person, to make sure everything was done correctly. I certainly recommend Smart Wave Solar to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, yet professional solar install.

Time from purchase to install was incredibly fast. Salesman was very helpful and straightforward, never pushy. Isaak and the rest of the install crew were amazing to work with - courteous, professional, happy to answer questions, etc. The panels look great. Haven't had our final inspection yet so they're not up and running quite yet but very satisfied with the process so far.

Really Bad service

Product and idea seem great. But Smart Wave Solar has really bad service. I was just contacted from PacifCorp to see if I could get one of Smart Wave Solar's employees to call them on an application they sent in. Not only would they not give me a number in Customer Service, they are not allowed to call them. Everyone works from home and they have no management of their employees. It is terrible when the Power Company and City employees can not get help. I am concerned as a customer my service has been poor. Process was started the first of May and now middle of Novemeber, I caused a few weeks of delay with questions and travel. But do not let Smart Wave always blame Cities and Power Companies, it is Smart Wave not following through or very long in ordering services.

Better than even hoped for

I recently had the pleasure of working with Smart Wave Solar for my solar panel installation, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From start to finish, their team exhibited professionalism, expertise, and a commitment to delivering top-notch service. The Smart Wave Solar team impressed me right from the beginning with their in-depth consultation. They took the time to understand my energy needs and provided a tailored solution that perfectly suited my requirements. Their knowledgeable staff patiently answered all my questions, ensuring I was well-informed every step of the way. What truly sets Smart Wave Solar apart is their dedication to affordability without compromising on quality. Their pricing is incredibly competitive, making solar energy accessible to homeowners like me. I appreciated the transparent pricing structure and the absence of hidden costs, which made the entire process hassle-free and budget-friendly. The installation itself was a smooth and efficient process. The Smart Wave Solar technicians were skilled, efficient, and respectful of my property. They completed the installation promptly and left my home clean and tidy, demonstrating their professionalism and attention to detail. Furthermore, Smart Wave Solar's post-installation support has been outstanding. They provided comprehensive guidance on how to monitor my system's performance and were readily available to assist with any inquiries I had. In summary, Smart Wave Solar exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Their exceptional service, combined with their affordability, makes them a standout choice for anyone considering solar energy solutions. I wholeheartedly recommend Smart Wave Solar to anyone seeking a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly energy solution for their home.

Great Pricing and Amazing Service

I reviewed 6+ solar companies before deciding to go with Smart Wave. They were very straight forward didn't try to sell me on things I didn't need. They have great options for financing as well. I worked with Steve Michels during the sales process and Joriel during the installation. The install was ahead of schedule and everything worked great! I would definitely recommend Smart Wave to anyone interested in generating their own power.
