Latest good review thumbs up

Peter Monachello | Minooka, Illinois | 10/05/2023


Brian has been nothing short of professional. His communication is second to none. He operates as if he owns the company. It’s refreshing to know companies still make customer service a priority. Thanks Brian for stepping in to handle the reinstall!

Latest bad review thumbs down

E. Goodall | Matteson, Illinois | 10/12/2023


This company gave us false information. We were told we could get $16,000 back in federal funds and rebates. Andy Beckett lied to us. When we filed our taxes we were only eligible to get only $900.00 back. They took the rebate back for the state of Illinois that was an incentive. Stay away from this company.

Makes Sense

Just received a presentation from Tron Solar regarding solar panels on my house. Brian Platt gave a great breakdown of how it works and was able to take a complex subject and really explain all the details in an easy to understand format.

Jaime Wilson, in Customer Service, best I have ever worked with!

Words cannot explain or do Jaime Wilson justice for the amazing customer service that we received from her and her staff. There are always bumps in the road, and things that are out of our control. The communication was better than we expected!!!! I would highly recommend Trom Solar for your solar needs. They are professional and cannot speak highly enough of them. Don't make a mistake and go with anyone else... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Oversold, under delivered

I can't speak of the quality of the product because I am still waiting for it to be connected. Salesman sold me on the idea of the quality of work insisted on by the owner. Installation crew damaged a landscaping light without notifying me, had to go into the attic as part of the installation and left a trail of insulation throughout the house when they left at the end of the day. When it came to the day for technician to connect the wiring he spent a good part of the time on a personal phone call. Now I find out that the installation didn't pass inspection from the electric company. The salesperson hasn't returned calls and the company person that answers the phone hasn't made effort to make me believe that they care when I brought these issues to their attention.

pressure sales, slow process, 3+ mo.'s and still no installation

Initial sales pitch to us assured us they had all the parts they needed. This was a lie. We started this in April. It's l;ate August and we're still waiting for installation after over a month since we approved engineering's design. They say they're waiting for a part. I'm a pro electrician and this year I've not had to wait more than 3 weeks for any specialty part. What happens if something breaks? We'd be paying off a $70,000 loan for a non-functioning system 3+ months long?

I would like say 'thank you"! to the Tron team for such a wonderful solar experience. It will be great doing business with you guys. I especially want to thank our Salesman Marlon Erazo for being such a blessing during this transition. Our family had no idea about Solar and I was very skeptical at first. However, because of the diligence and kindness that Marlon has shown us, we were able to transition successfully. Marlon has been there with us from start to completion and we are grateful for him. Thank you Tron!

Tron Solar

Excellent company! Great experience working with their employees. Hard worker who installed the panels rain / shine. You can really see the dedication they have . They didn’t leave my house until the work was totally done & we’re both satisfied. Great job & well done. I’ll recommend this company anytime with no hesitation at all. Great company with great employees!!!!

Importante que le instalen paneles solares en ambos lados del te

Gracias a Marcelo Hernandez y Pedro Oviedo por su esfuerzo, buen trabajo y excelente manejo en el proceso de nuestros sistema de Paneles solares con Tron Solar. Tan pronto mi sistema est� conectado con Duke Power estar� informando los detalles.<br /><br />Update: <br />Y� llevamos 7 meses con el sistema de paneles solares. Notar�n que quit� 2 estrellas y me explico. Aunque �stos sistemas trabajan bien, es importante que se aseguren que le instalen paneles solares en ambos lados de su techo para que eviten tener que pagar a la compa��a de energ�a (Duke's Power) dinero adicional. <br /><br />Durante la temporada de lluvia en la Florida tiende a llover despu�s del mediod�a casi todos los dias. S� solo tienen paneles en el lado suroeste como en mi caso, pierdes producci�n de energa por no tener paneles en el lado noreste. Pues los paneles solares producen energ�a en su m�xima capacidad cuando el sol est� directo a ellos. En mi caso, en la temporada de lluvia cuando el sol est� directo a los paneles solares, es cuando empieza a llover. Cuando eso pasa, los paneles no producen energ�a el�ctrica. Al no tener paneles solares en mi lado noroeste del techo, no hay compensaci�n de energ�a producida, porque no hay paneles solares en el lado opuesto de nuestro techo, donde el sol de toda la ma�ana est� m�s fuerte. <br /><br />Y� llevo pagando por 2 meses corridos $50 adicionales al pago de $112 mensuales del pago por financiar los paneles solares. Se supone que solo est� pagando $13 adicionales mensual a Duke's Power por el costo de estar conectado con ellos. Lo que los paneles solares acumulan de cr�dito en energ�a solar en la temporada regular, no es suficiente para compensar durante la temporada de lluvia con el resultado y� explicado.<br /><br />Yo saqu� cuenta y con 6 paneles adicionales en el lado opuesto a mi techo, resuelvo mi problema. Pero, le ped� a Pedro Oviedo de Tron Solar una cotizaci�n cash para los 6 paneles solares, pero a�n llevo y� varias semanas esperando y Tron Solar no me ha hecho la cotizaci�n. Mientras tanto, sigo esperando porque no es viable que otra compa��a lo haga, y� lo intent�. Seguir� pagado los platos rotos cometidos por el ingeniero que dise�� mis paneles solares de Tron Solar. Ojo!!!<br /><br />Google Translate: Thanks to Marcelo Hernandez and Pedro Oviedo for their effort, good work and excellent management in the process of our solar panel systems with Tron Solar. As soon as my system is connected to Duke Power it will be reporting the details. Update: And we have been with the solar panel system for 7 months. You will notice that I removed 2 stars and let me explain. Although these systems work well, it is important to ensure that you install solar panels on both sides of your roof to avoid having to pay the utility (Duke's Power) additional money. During the rainy season in Florida it tends to rain after noon almost every day. They only have panels on the southwest side as in my case, you lose energy production by not having panels on the northeast side. Well, solar panels produce energy at its maximum capacity when the sun is directly on them. In my case, in the rainy season when the sun is directly on the solar panels, it is when it starts to rain. When that happens, the panels do not produce electrical power. By not having solar panels on my northwest side of the roof, there is no energy offset produced, because there are no solar panels on the opposite side of our roof, where the all-morning sun is at its brightest. strong. And I have been paying for 2 consecutive months $ 50 additional to the payment of $ 112 per month of the payment to finance the solar panels. You're only supposed to be paying an additional $ 13 a month to Duke's Power for the cost of being connected to them. What solar panels accumulate credit in solar energy in the regular season, is not enough to compensate during the rainy season with the result and explained. I pulled out an account and with 6 additional panels on the side opposite my roof, I solved my problem. But, I asked Pedro Oviedo from Tron Solar for a cash quote for the 6 solar panels, but I've still been waiting for several weeks and Tron Solar has not made me a quote. Meanwhile, I keep waiting because it is not feasible for another company to do it, and I tried. I will continue to pay for the broken dishes committed by the engineer who designed my Tron Solar solar panels. Eye!!!
