Latest good review thumbs up

Steve | Takoma Park, Maryland | 09/24/2021

Great to work with

SEW took us through the sometimes complicated regulatory process of installing solar panels. They took care of all the paperwork and worked with the county historical agency to get the required permits. Because we are in a historic district this was an especially onerous task. Austin was great to work with and kept us in the loop.

Latest bad review thumbs down

Briggs | Arlington, VA | 10/10/2021

system failure after 10 months

had the system installed without major difficulties last winter. Then a couple of weeks ago I get a message from Enphase that only about half of the microinverters are working. Took four phone calls to SEW to get someone up on the roof to check it out. I was told it was either a lighting strike or a "grid event." No other evidence of lightning strike and no grid event on record. Said they were not responsible and I should contact my insurance company. What is frustrating is the lack of a definitive answer. I KNOW they failed, but why? My insurance company is balking due to lack of details. VERY frustrating and expensive. They say I have to pay for new panels and installation. And I assume with no guarantee this won't happen again. So much for saving money going solar. Briggs

Friendly crew, fast installation, great products

Chosen by the Solarize NOVA co-op in 2021 as their provider of solar installs in the area. Very happy with their products and employees who I interacted with from start to finish. Always quick to respond and answer all of my questions, including technical ones. Performance of the system is just as advertised and easy to monitor.

Best in the business

Solar Energy World is the company to use when upgrading to Solar. I spoke with four different companies during my process of getting get solar for my home. Solar energy world had by far the best presentation and answered any and all questions I had. Jay even made time to give me a second call when I thought of more questions regarding the solar. Jay provided everything that would happen during the process and each team member ensured I understood where I was in the process and provided the next step during installation, inspection, and finally powering on! Everyone I interacted with treated me like I was a member of their Solar family. If you want a stress free and process of adding solar to your home they are the team to use. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking into solar. Give them a call today Getting Solar is much more reasonable than you may think. Thank you again Solar Energy World!!

Professional, Reliable, They just know how to Get Things Done!

We went solar in our household and thanks to Brent Cotton and his team at Solar Energy World for making this happen. It all started with a dream to install a backyard pool and a way to reduce the carbon footprint that has entangled American for years. In the end, we have The Pool, A NEW Roof and Solar Panels to help with the reduction of that same carbon footprint plaguing the country today. Make sure you contact Solar Energy World asking for COTTON and give him the "Magnano" promo code receive the best reliable and cost saving experience.

Great Service

From day one our sales rep Sean has been nothing less than prompt and professional. Any questions and concerns were immediately answered. We were kept in the loop for the entire process and no detail was spared. Nothing like the personal touch of a salesman. Can't wait to what we'll be saving by going solar.
