Great install, terrible customer service

The installation process with these folks was terrific. There was one hiccup where they destroyed part of my bedroom ceiling but they were able to fix that before they completed the work. In the four years I have had the array, though, I have had many equipment failures. i am on my second inverter and it broke almost a month ago. It has taken nearly a month so far for Solar Energy World to not fix it, make excuses, reschedule appointments and in the end do nothing. If I had to choose again, I would have selected a different solar company.

Great Installation

Great installation, friendly efficient and effective crew, and super Field Energy Advisor, Jacques, who kept me informed of the process the entire time. Solar system seems to be producing more than original estimate, which was mentioned by Jacques. The only thing I did not like was that that the Company asked for a review (before I wrote this review) as soon as the system was physically installed, before it was even turned on. How was I to make a judgement on a black glass on my roof that I had no idea if it even worked? They even had the financing company pay for the system before it was turned on and before installation was approved by the county, which I found odd as well. Glad it works, guess they were confident on the system operating as it does.

I met SEW through the solar coop in Arlington and so had a steamlined invitation and then entry into the world of solar energy. The entire process went well for me and I am now waiting for the last step - the power company authorization - to be completed and then I can engage the system. The only hiccup was several bits of discarded materials left in the yard - so the entire process was not perfect, but the imperfection was one I was able to address without much trouble. Overall, I have been very pleased so far.

Great System, Service and Package

From start to finish, Sean Grieves was professional, responsive and patient as we learned about solar energy offerings. We received bids from 4 companies and went with Solar World not because they were the cheapest, but because Sean was able to explain the system and package and answer ALL of our questions (many, many questions) with expert, honest and detailed information. We felt the system, service and package offered by Solar World was the best quality and value for our home. Installation was accomplished with the same professionalism and care.

Amazing job

Working with Carson Landis was a pleasure. Carson is highly professional and knowledgeable. He took his time to explain everything in detail before we accepted. We are very satisfied after being educated on the solar energy by him. I highly recommend Solar Energy World.

Outstanding Experience

From start to finish Wyatt and the team at Solar Energy World made the installation of my system a breeze. He was especially supportive as I navigated the approval process through my HOA. Installation was quick, the installers professional, and I was led through the entire process of getting my system online and producing power in time to receive my tax credit. The system is performing perfectly. I would recommend Solar Energy World to anyone interested

3rd times a charm

After researching, and getting appraisals from several different companies online I decided that Solar energy world was the best choice. Solar energy world had the best price and the cleanest install over the competition. All companies offered the same make and number of panels and inverters, but the advantage with SEW is the visual aspect. A lot of my neighbors have lots of wire piping and l bracket exposed making it look unsightly. SEW had a great install team and Ryan the project manager was helpful and easy to talk to about any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend!
