Fantastic Company Product and Service!

We learned about Solar Energy World (SEW) through our neighbors in Arlington, VA. They seemed really happy with their install and we had a new electric car on the way and so wanted to explore the benefits. We were newbies and Zachary did a fantastic job of explaining how solar works (installation, cost, working with your power company, etc.). He also set realistic expectations of what we could expect. Using historical data from our electric bill images of our roof, pitch, trees, etc., Zachary pulled together a quote for us. He also had folks come out and inspect our roof which was 20 years old. Yep, we needed a new roof so we did everything at once-- through Zachary. Zachary was also super helpful in suggesting a easy to use way to finance the job (new roof and 38 panels). Zachary also helped us with timing to avoid potential cost increases and made it feel like a one stop shop (even though financing was with another company). Our job was probably medium difficulty to install as we have a detached garage and so additional lines had to be run. SEW did all of the engineering and presented us with a plan. Once we signed, we were off to the races. The installation was really well done and included great names like Silfab and Enphase. SEW made every effort to make the install look nice and SEW handled everything-- including inspection. We just had to be home to let workers/inspectors in. After the job was complete, Zachary and Erica did a fantastic job of answering our questions-- we still had many and so will you. They also went above and beyond in helping us to get our local power company to approve our system to maximize savings. SEW is legit and does not over promise. Honestly, we were disappointed initially when Zachary told us that 38 panels would not cover our entire electric bill. A lot of companies could tell you otherwise and simply not deliver. We knew up front that our installation would cover around 70% to 80% which was still worth it for us. Our installation is new enough where we are still tracking bills but electric prices have definitely dropped and now I can power my new EV truck with solar power which is incredibly efficient from both a cost and time perspective. There is a learning curve with solar in terms of design, installation, dealing with your power company and cost. Do your homework and ask a lot of questions. Definitely ask for Zachary and Erica-- they are a fantastic team and made our process so much easier. Would I use SEW again or recommend to a friend? The answer is an absolute yes-- and we have already done so. Great job Zachary, Erica and SEW!

Initial estimates not close to final cost

It felt like a bait and switch when the initial estimate numbers were changed 15% higher once contract was signed. Make sure you have some buffer for that.

Great experience- SEW simplifies/walks customer thru each step

Had a tremendous experience and my panels have been up and running for 4 months now. The advisor/client rep (for me) was Jacques Frink, and he was fantastic and professional-- explained every step in detail and any follow up questions I had, whether on the architecture blueprint (questions on fitting more), the estimated production (explained SREC pricing), etc. Solar Energy World (SEW) has a very good overview document that they provide to detail out the system, overhead shots of the roof, etc. Would highly recommend given their volume of work in the area, and in particular the way they handle gaining approvals from my HOA, town permits, etc. Class act and made it very easy, which is why I feel okay typing this much : ) Also- if it matters-- I feel the "look" of the panels they use is very sleek/unassuming, so it looks very 'clean' on the roof. Also decided based on the 30-yr insured (transferable if home is sold) Installation was NOT on schedule but that was due to Dominion Energy having a delay for every customer due to the new type of meter they were starting to use.

I was leary about going Solar and had spoken with a few companies and am grateful I found Solar World, from the initial consultation with my salesman Jairo to their scheduling staff gave nothing but great customer service, from answering my questions to the installation to completion I was kept informed every step of the way which is not typical in this day and age. If you're looking to go Solar I would highly recommend giving them a call!

Great job! The team was very efficient. Installing went on smoothly as planned and I was informed about every detail from finished to start. The company helped me saved a lot of money by installing my electric tail line. A project that almost hindered my installing. Always contact solar energy world for all your solar questions. I will definitely call them again for another project.

Solar Energy World!

Overall I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience with Solar Energy World. Although very skeptical at first and hesitant, Scott Grams made the sales and installation (Emily) experience worry free. Scott exemplifies the meaning of customer service. He put up with my insistent questioning and educated me along the way. Something you don't see much of especially these days! I offer my highest recommendation for Scott and Solar Energy World. If you're on the fence and need questions answered contact Scott at Solar Energy World. He knows what he's talking about (believe me my wife and I verified everything) There were NO SURPRISES! Scott went the extra mile to ensure the customer is completely satisfied!

Seamless Experience!

Solar Energy World made our entire experience truly effortless. I was overwhelmed with solar companies and state regulations but Scott took the time to walk us through the process from start to finish with clarity and expertise. Not only did the entire install go more smoothly than I expected but Solar Energy World was there every step of the way to resolve any issues and answer questions without missing a beat. Even when we had the rude awakening that my roof needed more repairs than anticipated, Scott found prompt solutions even though he was away on vacation. I can't recommend this company enough!

One word "Exemplary"

I have dealt with many contractors in my lifetime and Solar Energy World goes above and beyond. For a project that stretches out over several months they receive five stars from start to finish. From my first call requesting a quote for a system through scheduling and shepherding the project to completion. They provided an honest appraisal of the size system I would need, how long before they would be able to begin the project, time to install and the county inspection process. They also took care of most of the paperwork for county inspections and the utility company. The system is on-line and one month in I am very happy with the production so far. Hats off to project manager Jeff and all of the crews that installed this system. They were all very friendly and always communicated when they would be arriving, when they arrived and when they were departing.

An excellent solar panel experience

From meeting Scott, our salesman to the electrician and solar panel installers, dealing with Solar Energy World has been a very easy experience. Everybody is thoroughly knowledgeable and professional and installers took great care doing a good job and leaving nothing behind when they were finished. While we have not had the panels activated yet, we are very much looking forward to the energy savings that the panels will give us.

Exceptional Solar Installation Service by Solar World Energy

I recently had the pleasure of working with Solar World Energy for the installation of solar panels at my home, and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with their service. From start to finish, Solar World Energy, led by their exceptional agent, Jaques, delivered an outstanding experience that surpassed all my expectations. Jaques, with his extensive knowledge and expertise in solar energy, guided me through the entire process with remarkable professionalism. He patiently explained the benefits of solar power and addressed all my questions and concerns, ensuring I had a clear understanding of the system and its advantages. His enthusiasm for sustainable energy solutions was contagious, and I felt confident that I had made the right choice. The installation itself was executed flawlessly by the Solar World Energy team under Jaques' leadership. They were punctual, organized, and worked diligently to complete the installation in a timely manner. Their attention to detail was exceptional, ensuring that the panels were positioned optimally to harness the maximum amount of sunlight while maintaining the visual appeal of my property. Throughout the project, Jaques demonstrated excellent communication and transparency. He kept me informed of the progress, provided regular updates, and promptly addressed any concerns or inquiries I had. It was truly refreshing to work with someone who values customer satisfaction and goes above and beyond to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience. The quality of the solar panel installation by Solar World Energy is outstanding. The team utilized top-of-the-line equipment, and their skilled technicians ensured that every aspect of the installation was carried out with precision. Since the installation, I have been reaping the benefits of clean, renewable energy and have noticed a significant reduction in my energy bills. It's incredibly rewarding to know that I am making a positive impact on the environment while also enjoying long-term cost savings.
