Firstly, no solar contractors can pay to get listed at the top of our search results.
The order of our list of best solar installers is displayed based on a formula balancing reviews number and reviews score only from the last two years. If a company has a lot of reviews and a higher average reviews score, but is below another company in the list, it is because most of their reviews are old and the company above them has more reviews at a better average reviews score in the last two years (even if overall they have fewer reviews or a lower all time average reviews score).
We show all solar energy contractors that have received reviews of solar panel installation work they have done in Fremont even if they don't have an office in Fremont. There are a lot of renewable energy companies in the solar industry in the United States that service areas in which they don't have offices via contract installation teams. Some of these companies receive a lot of complaints (see the big national installers reviews like Vivint Solar, Sunrun and Solar City), but others have really good reviews and so we don't exclude them from our top solar companies lists. They often bring price competition to smaller cities where the local solar companies are so busy they need to put their prices up. It is up to you how much weight you put on a local office when choosing between solar companies.

We had our solar system installed by Semper Solaris about and are very happy with the results. Our sales representative Blake Lewow was very knowledgeable and help us with figure out a solar package that will cover our electricity needs at a great price, we were sold and decided give it a go. After a few days a representative came to do the roof inspection and to ensure the pre-layout was going to work. Couple days after that the final layout was emailed to me for approval and two week later the local permits were approve and ready for the installation. This process was very smooth and they were very accommodating and helpful to set up my installation date to ensure it was the right for us. The installation crew was very professional, efficient and friendly and answer any question I had. We would definitely recommend this company and Blake Lewow. for your solar needs. Thank you Semper Solaris.... read more

Kurios was the best price out of the four estimates that I had. The extra warranties were included in the costs. Financing through Green Sky was quick and easy. They were professional every step of the way. My solar was up and running within a week. P G & E was connected and counting within a couple of weeks. I am very satisfied with Kurios and would recommend them highly.... read more

I contracted with YSG to install a 12kw system on my home in Westchester county, NY. Every step of the transaction was exceptionally difficult, from the quoting process, to the initial inspection, to the installation, and also the paperwork. I had so many issues that I really don't have the time (or space) to write them out here, but here is a list. I'll start with things that went well, then move on to the issues.Pros: -All-in, the overall price was competitive (though not the lowest) compared to competing quotes.-I really liked that they gave price quotes without coming to the house; I hate losing so much time at work trying to meet with all the different contractors to get quotes.-My salesman truly did seem to care about my project, though due to the structure of YSG, he was not able to deliver on many of his promises since most were out of his hands.-The installation looks nice on my roof.-The low-interest financing is nice, though it does raise the cost of the installation by over $1,000 (not a complaint- you're still better off financing the additional principal and letting your money work in the marketCons:-Price changes: when I initially signed the contract, I was quoted a price. I said specifically that I want my roof vents and attic fan relocated to accomodate the installation, and was told "yes, we'll do that" (all other companies included this in the quoted price too). The roofer came by and inspected the roof, and I didn't hear anything. Then their guy came to put the rails on the roof and mount a few solar panels. Great. Later that day, I receive a call indicating that the price would increase by $1,500 due to the roof modifications. This was never communicated before work began, and then I was stuck- if I backed out, they would charge me for the work already performed. I raised a stink and they offered me a $300 rebate. I'm not happy about it, but that's where we landed. This is really the main issue with my entire project- if not for this, I probably would overlook everything else. They knew about this work from day 1, and could have scheduled the roof inspection prior to the initial installation; I'm not sure if this was done on purpose or was just one of their many miscommunications, but it left a very sour taste in my mouth.-Miscommunications: holy moly, SO many miscommunications. When you deal with YSG, you're dealing with a team of 6, and it's like a huge game of telephone. The installers never came when the salesman said they would, and none of my installation requests were passed from the salesman ultimately down to the installers. Thankfully one of the installers gave me his number so I was able to text him directly to find out when he was coming, but this unfortunately highlighted another issue.-Installers: the installers do NOT work for YSG. As such, your project can be prioritized behind someone else's. My installer said he would finish the job on 12/31/18 so that I could have my loan docs and tax deductions in the 2018 tax year, and on 12/31/18, he just plain didn't show up. He said he would be there at 3 (which, BTW, wouldn't have been early enough to finish, given how long it ultimately took him), but at 3:30 I called him and he said "oh I had another project today and I'm not coming". I raised another stink and got him to come around 6; he did a couple hours work and left. He came back on 1/1 but didn't finish, then finally finished on 1/2. So, it's now 2019 and I can't get the federal or state incentives for about 14 months. Great. They do give you a 12 month zero interest loan on the incentives so that takes away some, but not all, of the pain.-Promises: when I started the project, it was November and I said I would only do the project if they could get it done by year end so that I could get the tax benefit in ~March '19 instead of March '20. I was told "oh yeah, definitely". They got the permits very quickly, which was great. The installation was scheduled to take 3 days- 1 day of prep work/putting up panels that weren't blocked by the roof vents, 1 day of roofing, and 1 day of finish work. Day 1, the installers showed up and mounted racks on the roof and put a few panels up. They only stayed 4 or 5 hours and said that they were blocked from doing anything else by the roof vents (weird, because there was a ton of interior electrical pre-work that could have been done aside from connecting to the panels). The roofers came a couple hours later than promised but ultimately finished the work and did a good job. Then the headaches started. I just could NOT get the guys to come out and finish the job. I made 8 days available to them between when the roof work was completed and the end of the year, and they only came on 12/31. Granted, weather blocked 2 of those days, but not really- there was still 6 hours of interior electrical work to do that they ultimately ended up doing at night on other days. So the guys finally come on 12/31 and get the rest of the panels up, saying "the other guy will come at 3 to do electrical". He didn't. I made a stink and he came for 2 hours at night and left. Ultimately, the project was completed across two more days.-Inverter sizing: the company tried to cheap out on the inverter and give me a 10kw inverter for my 12kw array. This only saves them money, as the inverter manufacturer proudly displays the efficiency of their inverters showing that between these two inverters, both hit peak efficiency starting at 2kw and stay there for the rest of the relevant range. This means if you put, for example, 6kw into a 10kw inverter, you get the same power into the grid as if you put 6kw into a 12kw inverter. But, on days where the array generates over 10kw, you LOSE power (and money) in a 10kw inverter but not in a 12kw inverter. They tried to show me an article based on DC/AC ratios of micro inverters (I have a string inverter) where the inverters in question have different efficiency curves. It took 2 emails, 4 calls, and ultimately I had to raise my voice on a call to squeeze an 11.4kw inverter out of them.So, as you can tell from my novel, it was NOT an easy transaction to say the least. Save yourself the headache and work with a smaller local company where the person you talk to is the person who does the work, and where there are fewer cooks in the kitchen.... read more

I recently had a 10.8kW solar panel installed on my house by NRG Clean Power. While everyone at the company, from sales to installation and post-installation walk-through was great, the 'ace' of the team clearly has been Tiffany Swisa. She not only is warm and friendly, making the necessary communication enjoyable and stress-free, but she has a fantastic grasp of the entire series of steps involved. She, therefore, is able to stay on top of all the steps and coordinate the different activities beginning with the initial site visit, to the engineer's projections, the approvals required, the installer's schedules, the city inspection and the final walk-through. If not for Tiffany, all of this might seem daunting to anyone who has never done it before, but she makes it all occur effortlessly and on time. Even more impressive, she somehow seems to make herself available if any uncertainties occur and is always ready and able to answer any questions that might arise. In this day and age of automation and 'impersonal customer service', having Tiffany available to answer questions, coordinate activities and assure things continue to run smoothly and on-schedule proved to be an unexpected and welcomed advantage to selecting NRG to install our panels. I recommend NRG, and Tiffany, with the greatest enthusiasm and confidence possible.... read more

I shopped solar pretty rigorously and LA Solar was able to deliver on pricing and they offer the best warranties. Joe Hawley, the salesman, has been in the industry for over a decade and was able to educate me and answer all of the questions that I had. I ended up going with the Panasonic 330 panels, they cost more, but you don''t need as many and they are a much better product. As far as installation, the roofing foreman was James, the solar electrician was Vahag and the main panel upgrade electrician was Joseph. They all did a great job leaving my house clean and in good shape when they left. The whole process was quick and easy.I''m very happy with my decision to work with LA Solar. They''re a big company, but not big enough to treat you like the big corporate solar companies treat you.... read more

They were honest and not pushy when selling me my solar. Then they were quick and took care of everything between the sale and installation so that I didn't have to worry. The installation went great, and then between the panel outside and the app, I can always see how much energy and money I'm saving! I'd recommend them to anyone for their honesty and professionalism.... read more

I'm having trouble with my solar system which is 2 years old. I've contacted the Solar Spectrum customer service 5 times with no response. Very frustrated! I've left emails, called and left messages, no reponse. This has been going on now for 2 weeks.

TOP NOTCH, can not say enough about this company. Peter the salesman’s was honest and true to his word. Sold me the system that I needed did not try and sell me something that was not necessary. Josh the owner was also awesome. I had a horrible solar experience my first time around and these guys changed my opinion on the way solar should be done. If you want awesome communication and jobs done timely at a fair price than this is the company that you want. My job minus the HOA was done completed and turned on in less than a week. They said they where coming and showed up on time and cleaned up every day and the whole crew was awesome. I would continue talking about these guys by I would just start repeating myself.... read more
