Excellent Company - highly recommend them!

Sunny Energy has been an excellent company to work with right from the beginning. After talking to David, who was so kind to spend so much time answering my questions, definitely helped me make the decision to go with them. A big thank you to the designers, installers and technicians to the final walk through with Michael and follow up with Melanie Customer Service Manager. If I could give them more than a 5-star rating, I would do that. My only negative comment would be on the scheduling. While 99% of the time the schedule coincided with mine, there was an incident where the technicians came earlier than the scheduled time and I wasn’t ready for them. I was able to share my comments with Melanie for follow up. However, this would not stop me from still giving them a 5-star rating. Sunny Energy is an outstanding company. I liked the fact they hire their own employees rather than outsourcing. The website they have allows you to follow the progress of your project. This was very important for me to have as I was out of state for two months when this project started. It allowed me to stay on top of the progress that was being made. If there were any updates or issues, emails and texts were sent by them and if for some reason I needed to speak to someone, they were always available by phone. By the time I was back in the state they had everything ready for the install. They are also a very giving company in that they contribute to charitable organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Hospital. I am very happy I went this company and looking forward to many years of saving dollars on my electric bill. A big thank you to everyone who works with Sunny Energy!!!

Latest bad review thumbs down

Mr. Rodgers (the rep that came to our home) from Modern City Solar along with Sunny Energy LLC (I have come to find out is a sub dealer) installed a system on my home in 2017. Mr. Rodgers from Modern city convinced us to go with their Sunrun option. Our system since then has not covered our energy cost as promised. The system was underbuilt by a lot. We had a solar technician friend look at the system and he let us know that it was severely underbuilt. WE ARE STUCK WITH A LEASE WITH A 2.9 rate increase and come to find out we were overcharged for it as well. We are paying $92.31 a month on top of us $179.97. Giving us an effective monthly payment of $272.28 a month. WITH THAT 2.9 ESCALATOR!! After running the numbers, I would've had an average of around $176 without solar!! Had multiple solar reps verify where we would've been. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GROUP AND THEIR PARTNERS. Will be reporting all 3 to the BBB

This Company is Great

These guys were great. Started the whole process in early July 2022 and everything was up and running by mid September. It took a village of people to text and e-mail me through the process and even more people to coordinate on-sight visits to connect with SRP. The installation was quick and easy, too. The last thing they did was spray paint the silver piping to match my house to please the HOA. Everyone I dealt with, throughout the process, were professional, efficient and fantastic. Highly recommend Sunny Energy.

Awesome experience!

It has been an amazing experience. I had solar panels with a different company before and comparing both, this time around we've felt more confident on our purchase with Sunny Energy. The price was doable, the installation went smoothly, and the after care program was phenomenal!

Highly Recommend Sunny Energy as your Solar System Professional

Our electric company, SRP, referred us to three solar companies when we began our search for a solar system with battery backup. We knew we’d made the right decision when Sunny Energy responded to my call within five minutes and only one of the other referrals contacted us about five days later. We began collaborating with Rich Mason at once to define and build our solar package. The entire process consisted of respect, courtesy, and professionalism from our first sales meeting, throughout the installation and final walkthrough meeting with Michael McCaffery and the Genrac Engineer. No question or concern was too insignificant. Each time, we were contacted by the proper individual and resolution was . We followed the process throughout on the customer portal. We would highly recommend you include Sunny Energy in your search for the best solar system for you. It was well worth every penny of our investment.

I had such a great experience with Sunny Energy. From the initial meeting through the entire rest of the process, I knew exactly what was going on and when. I didn't feel pressured like with other companies. I actually felt really comfortable during my first interaction. I'm so glad I decided to go with this company!

Sunny Energy was a delight to deal with. Everything went smoothly for the most part. The customer service went above and beyond to make everything correct as fast as possible. They show you step by step where you're at in the process. I would defiantly recommend them!!

New system install

Sunny Energy was a pleasure to work with. They quoted a system and then explained everything they quoted. They did not try to over sell and when I asked about installing a larger system, they explained why it was not worth the money. They took care of all the permits and permissions that were needed and filled out all the paperwork. The install team showed up on time and was fast and efficient and cleaned up after themselves. Then Sunny Energy did a full follow up and once again explained how the whole system worked and operated. Great Job, very pleased.

After meeting with 4 solar providers I had researched, I selected Sunny Energy. We financed through them and the whole process was flawless from approval through installation. The Installation subcontractor did break one roof tile but assured me that was the only damage. Our 15kW system is amazing and after the first six months I have only the loan payment for electricity cost. In Arizona, that is a budget saver! My system has had NO issues and puts out a minimum of 20kWs per day over our usage. We ran into one issue at the one year walkthrough on our house, finding out that the subcontractor they used had broken 23 tiles. It is my understanding that this subcontractor was fired shortly after our installation. I contacted Sunny Energy about the problem. They understood, that as a homeowner, I would not have known about the damage if it weren’t for the builder 1 year walkthrough. They worked with me and were pleasant from the start. They repaired all the broken or damaged tiles, and did it within two weeks of contacting them. The main reason I am writing this review is because it is so hard to find a company that does it right and stands behind the product when a problem occurs. If you are looking for a solar system for your house, you would do well to go with Sunny Energy.

Very pleased with the entire experience

I did a lot of research before going with Sunny Energy. They kept me well informed throughout the entire process. I never felt like I was being upsold. They listened to me when I suggested changes to the design and layout. It was stressful to pick a solar company, but in the end I decided to go with a local company that has been around for a long time. I got several bids that were lower but I didn't trust the salesperson or the company as much. I'm glad I picked Sunny Energy. My panels are up and cranking out power. I'd recommend to a friend or family member.
