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 Los Altos even if they don't have an office in Los Altos. 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.

My solar has been down for 6 days. The installation was completed last October 2018. That's 4 months old!I have called customer service 3 times and have yet to receive a phone call to address the problem and schedule a visit to repair that problem.Very poor customer service.

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

As having solar system installed is a 20 years commitment, I spoke to 5 solar companies not just to compare the price but most importantly to see cross reference the information they provided.What I found out, sales reps mostly reply on the computer program generated quote. Interestingly, after analyzing the same PG&E electricity usage history, some quoted me 7.6kw and some quoted me 5.8kw system. That is a huge difference that I definitely would love to sort out why. Most sales rep will cite that is how their software calculates, some said that is based upon system needs to cover 100% PG&E usage. Only Ali from Highligh Solar clearly explained how PG&E Net Metering works, and made clear sense the system size he recommended.The most amazing about Ali is that any question I came up with, e.g. what is the back feed of my main panel, he can get me the right answer right away even after 6 weeks of his visit, with picture of my panel attached. Once the decision is made, Ali walked me through the proposal and contract review, and Dean, the owner, was also very accommodating to accept some revisions I requested.. Then Jesse helped with permits and project management, Sam helped with monitoring and PG&E application, plus the professional installation team who made the whole process as smooth as it gets.2 days after installation, I reported weird system reading from Solar Edge mobile app, Dean and Sam called Solar Edge and confirmed they need to replace the inverter, which then got scheduled and done in less than 2 days by next available technician.In the end, Dean also personally helped me understand Solar Edge monitor reading, and answer many solar production related questions!!!All in all, I highly recommend Highlight Solar for their well rounded professional team!!!!!! Their service deserved 6 stars!!!... 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

Tim and his team were great! From the moment they contacted me they made me feel like I was a valued customer. They took the time to come out and talk to me about the whole process. If I ever had any questions he was always assuring me that I could call, text or email him. He gave me an incredible price that beat out many competitors I had talked to. He is an honest business owner and a veteran (an added bonus) He doesn't do subpar work he uses quality products and is at every install. This is one of the few solar companies that has been around for 10 years and they were able to provide referrals from previous jobs, which made me feel a lot better about where my money was going. His sales rep was a nice young man he was always available to talk and would occasionally check up on me. I never felt pressured by them to buy, which made the experience comfortable. He was also very quick from the time I signed to installation took about 3 weeks! Would definitely recommend Golden State Solar to anyone looking for solar! Thank you TIm!... read more

Our meeting with Nic Torvend was interesting and informative. His computer program showed specifics for our home use and what we would save. The vendor he matched us with - Sunworks - was prompt, and helpful. Now that we have had the solar panels and service for a year we can definitely state that we have saved a great deal and are Very satisfied. Our average electrical bill was $10 a month, and the roundup charge at the end of the year was only $78! Nic predicted what we would save and he was correct! We would suggest anyone interested in getting solar to contact Nic and and learn how to save on the rising costs of electrical use. Ann Marie & Yulius Yadegar... read more
From the start, my Solar Savers representative made sure I had all the information I needed to make a decision, and then worked with me to make sure I got the best deal and system size specific to my preferences and needs. Inspection and installation were totally painless, getting everything done on time to my schedule, without making a mess or creating a hassle. Got the system turned on just a few days after installation, with the final inspection taking only few minutes - which was great, no hassle! I immediately noticed a difference on my electric bill which included only a partial period with the system turned on. Although my household is getting larger, the bill is dropping dramatically already. Can't wait to see how much am going to save over the summer when the AC gets put into use 24/7. One thing I didn't consider in advance, is that my homeowners insurance took a measurable hike. Everything considered, my experience so far is very positive. The guys who put in the system were professional, did a clean job, and my salesperson made sure I was comfortable about moving forward without being pushy. I've had the system for a couple months now, and look forward to saving money most of all. By the way - looks great on the house, too!... read more
