Wonderful experience with Sarah R. and Solar Spectrum!

Sarah was a delight to work with as we researched and finalized our decision to have Solar Spectrum install solar panels on our home. Sarah's communication skills are excellent. She listens carefully, is patient and the information she shares, both on the phone and in emails, is clear and concise. Sarah is patient, sends pleasant reminders as needed, and dealt with our questions and concerns thoroughly. At one point we asked to have a design change made to accommodate the position of the bathroom stack on the roof and Sarah contacted the design specialists and engineers to insure the changes were made without a problem. Her work ethic and her communication skills are stellar. I am a nurse and as a result my schedule is varied and not predictable week to week. Sarah was more than understanding and took this into consideration as we worked with the timetable that had been established. We are thrilled with the work done and Sarah's excellent skills.

Avoid Solar Spectrum- Financial uncertainty

Solar Spectrum installed my system on 3/4/20. Then on 4/10 I received a letter from an attorney stating that a lien is being placed on my house due to the solar equipment not being paid for. I financed the equipment, however solar spectrum never paid for the equipment. Now what I’m being told is Solar Spectrum Is restructuring their company. My system is not even operational and they refuse to answer the phone. To recap I owe a 30k solar loan, I have have a 10k lien on my house and a system on my roof that does not work. Find another solar company to do business with

I was literally blown away by the service I received - excellent

I chose Sungevity / Solar Spectrum because of the good reviews and the fact they did everything by phone or online? The whole experience was amazing, with my Project Manager, Stephen Snow doing everything possible to make the experience as flawless as possible. He was there every step of the way and made sure everything went smoothly. We needed different optimizers and he found the right person for us to make sure this happened. This inspector flew in and trained the crew how to install them. He also had the representative of the manufacturer of the panels bring the optimizers to our home. He stayed for the entire day while the job was completed. The crew with Joe in charge did a great job! Cannot say enough about working with Stephen Snow though because he basically held our hand for the duration of the Solar Spectrum experience. He was always there for us. Highly recommend your company - you choose the right people - thank you!

New home

I just bought a home with sungevity panels already installed. I worked with blake and he explained it all and went out of his way to get me all setup. Great customer service by this company!

Joe Downey is a honest sales person

I called in to ask for a quote for installing a small solar system in my house. After reviewing my electricity usage and Billings, since the ROI is more than eleven years he thinks it may not be a good idea to do it now unless I really want to do it. He is honest and is not pushing me to purchase something that I will regret. I give him a five stars.

Alex Apilado

I found Alex to be personable and was interested in helping to make sure I understood the information and was no pressured to move forward with the process, I was alllowed time to "think and compare" which is important to me when making decisions of this sort

Fast and knowledgeable assistance with solar PV system.

Alex from Sungevity, was very prompt to get me the design layout for my home. He made use of the most space available in order to produce the most energy. He never tried to pressure me or sell me panels in locations that would not make sense as others have (north facing roof). Very responsive to calls and emails. I would definitely recommend giving him an opportunity to assist you if you are considering solar.
