Ground mount in SE MN | Rochester, Minnesota | 01/12/2022

Professional and Flexible

I admit, there were only 2 'bidders' for our home project. (1) Solar Connections and (2) me. I really wanted to design and install our own ground mount system myself. But I also knew, from many hours of research, from experience wiring this property and a glowing recommendation from a trusted friend in the power distribution business, that I had better get at least 1 other 'competing' bid. I fully expected that the bid would be too expensive for the size of the system I wanted. But once I saw it and figured what I would have to pay to get comparable hardware (that took me a while), the profit built into the bid seemed very fair. That, coupled with the fact that we are always happy to support local business and their estimated time to get the system up and running was way shorter than the 'preferred vendor... me' we signed up. Super glad we did. The whole process from sales to commissioning was low pressure, informative, VERY flexible given we decided midstream to upgrade some panels to both meet code today and be ready for battery chargers in the near future.

Highly recommend over others we have been contacted by

The presentation of the information and the research they did as we showed interest in solar was top notch. Much better than another "solar company" that came with more of a sales pitch for financing than discussion of our potential solar output. The installation went great! And communication with everyone at Solar Connection has been very responsive and helpful. I love the app I can use on my phone or computer to see exactly what is being generated and in the short time we have had them in place, they appear to be generating as much or more than discussed based on our Minnesota weather and my roof not facing perfectly south.

Great company to work with for installing solar panels

We were interested in having solar on our forever home and Solar Connection made that a possibility. They were very helpful on providing building specifications so that when we installed solar after finishing the house things would go smoothly. Once we were ready for installation of the solar panels the technicians were very courteous and respectful of the property. I would recommend them to anyone looking to install solar panels on their house or looking to have them when building a new house.

The Best in the Business!

My family and I are incredibly impressed with our experience with Solar Connection. They provided an outstanding system for amazing value and helped answer our questions throughout the entire process. We felt extremely valued and appreciated. We couldn't imagine going with anyone else, especially after the out-of-state companies were trying to sell us systems that cost more than twice for less output. We highly suggest reaching out to Solar Connection if you are interested in exploring solar for your home and know that you will be pleased if you set up your system!

Andrews House Array | Rochester, MN | 11/12/2021

Great bunch.

I just got 16 panels going on my house. These guys also installed 12 panels on the garage 6 or 8 years ago. They are great to work with. The new batch presented some difficulties, going on a 97 year old house, but they rolled with the problems and we have our panels going. Great job, great bunch to work with.

We have had a terrific experience with Solar Connection. They provided us many options for our solar system: # of panels and placement, inverter options, panel wattage. They provided information about RPU and federal rebates. They responded quickly to all of the questions I had about the system. Our system has been producing enough to cover our entire RPU bill every month.

Drean come true

Solar Connection truly provided a connection of history with the present. The solar panel installation on an historic carriage house renewed the purpose of the building. Where hay was once fed to horses to pull carriages, the panels now power an electric car. Solar Connection professionaly made this dream come true.

professional, courteous and smooth service

Solar Connection is very professional and very easy to work with. Their proposal might not be the cheapest, especially compared with some quotes from out of state vendors, but their assessment is more trustworthy. Garry explained to me the ideal configuration for my rooftop and the cost benefit analysis is convincing. He also regularly followed up during and after the installation and answered any questions I may have. The scheduling and installation process is smooth and streamlined. Megan did a great job explaining the process. Her responses are always so prompt. There were checkpoints during installation that were gated by the local utility, but I can tell they have established a good working relationship to make it as easy as possible. I’d say this is one of the reasons to go with a local company besides supporting local business. Now is the second month after the installation. I am still crunching numbers and see them translating into real dollars. So far so good, and more importantly, I feel confident that if I need assistance, I can count on these guys.

Radiant Experience

From our very first interaction with the energy consultant, Garret Sorensen, to our final install commissioning with Megan and Dave, we had a wonderful experience working with Solar Connection. Garrett was extremely knowledgeable and demonstrated an obvious passion for renewable energy. It was clear why several of our friends and colleagues have recommended Solar Connection. We would highly recommend contacting Solar Connection to learn more about solar panels and the process.

Fantastic Company!

Solar connections was amazing to work with for our array. Their representative that met with us at the start of our purchase was great. Garrett was very knowledgeable and planned a great system for our house. Throughout the process the company was very engaged and communicated exceptionally well at every juncture. The installers were awesome and kept the area clean. The system has worked very well. We had some issues with one panel and it was replaced very quickly. We would do business with Solar Connections again in a heartbeat. They are very professional and treat their clients with respect. You can be confident that they will meet and exceed your expectations.
