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 Ventura even if they don't have an office in Ventura. 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.

In an earlier review, I castigated Pacific Sky Solar and said that you can't count on them to back you up when things go south. I'm happy to report that I was proven wrong. The owner of the company paid me a personal visit to make things right. I have tremendous respect for this. He was able to take full ownership of what went wrong and made reparations that I am more than satisfied with. Like I said in my original review, you can tell the integrity of a business not by how they act when everything goes well, but how they act when things don't go as planned. Well, Pac Sky Solar renewed my faith in their integrity, and so, because of this, I want my review to reflect that. In this day and age when they could have easily ignored my review and gone about their business, they chose, instead, to do the honorable thing. Well done, Pac Sky Solar. You're earned back my business, and you should consider them yourself the next time you want solar work done.... read more

Crown solar is outstanding, better than the maximum stars allowed.When I first decided to go solar, I discovered this is not a mature industry - in fact it's a jungle that reminded me of the aluminum siding salesman of several years ago. Within almost moments of a first call (to Tesla which I mistakenly thought would be the most mature company) my phone began ringing and didn't stop; these companies obviously share prospects and I received at least 50 calls. Most had already Googled my house, taken the screenshot of my roof, and threw quotes at me even though some were on the other side of the continent. Thoroughly confused, but determined, I decided to do due diligence and I accepted about 30 quotes. Only two actually offered to come and visit the location, and only one showed up: Omar, the owner who actually brought a licensed electrician and project engineer along to ensure that the quote would be accurate and that there would be no hidden costs - it was Crown Solar Electric which is located here in Southern California. They were meticulous, inspecting every aspect of my electric facilities including my electric panels, grid feed, and meter. Notwithstanding this, I was at first unsure of them because the quote was almost half of the big companies (after tax credits which they computed correctly) and I wondered where they were cutting costs. So I compared the proposed equipment (the identical panels to those offered by the expensive quotes of the big companies) the conversion process (the same micro-generators, one per panel that the bigger companies offered) the roof guarantee (the industry standard twenty-five years) and the relationship to the LA DWP (which was superior to everyone else's). Still expecting something might well go wrong, I closed my eyes and leapt into the water anyway.They made me feel like a genius. They arrived on the day appointed, finished all the work in one day, with the same project manager (Jeremy) who had originally inspected the house, and assured me the system would be large enough, which was important to me since this is a big 6000 square-foot home. The day after they completed their work I had my customary roofer come and inspect what they had done to my flat roof. As one might expect, he had some quibbles, but notwithstanding the guarantee, Jeremy returned within 48 hours and corrected anything the roofer had noted even though they assured me they were not significant. This alone would've been enough to say that they lived up to their word completely, efficiently, and with courtesy and extreme care. But it got better: as so often happens, the LADWP were slow in changing my meter and attending to their side of the installation. Melissa and Audra handled them completely and at no time did I ever have to contact LADWP or become involved in their bureaucracy. In fact, Crown Solar even offered to cover the cost of my electric bill during a delay occasioned not by their work but LA DWP scheduling. As soon as the system was up and connected to the grid, CS took care of connecting me to a monitoring service which provides me daily reports on the condition of my panels and the amount of power they produce.In this day and age when old-fashioned service is so hard to come by, and too many suppliers are happy to collect the last check and consider their commitment done, Crown Solar is a reminder of how customer service and job commitment should be. I had no prior knowledge of the company and no one recommended them to me - I hired them strictly on the basis of my own due diligence and comparing some 30-odd quotes. This is an outstanding company and I could not be more delighted with their commitment and effort. I give them six stars out of five. If anyone reading this has any doubts that this is a totally unsolicited reference, I have given Crown Solar permission to put them in contact with me directly.if you're thinking about solar, be very careful of this wild West industry. But Crown and its people are truly outstanding.... read more

I selected Green Conception after interviewing 5 companies. They gave me one of the more aggressive bids, which I liked. Their reviews were good, and their customer service was good, so I picked them for the install. They were easy to work with, kept to timelines, and quickly resolved any issues. I would recommend them.... read more

We wanted to take a moment to write a review for Shelter Roofing And Solar. From the very start and all through the project they were fantastic with communication and explaining everything to us. They were fast to answer all of our follow up questions as well. When the guys came to do the work/install everything they were professional, quick, and clean. This was just an overall great experience and we would recommend them to anybody looking to install a solar system or have work done on their roof.... read more

After doing a good deal of research on solar panels, energy efficiency, and solar providers in LA, we decided to go with LA Solar Group as our provider. We received competing quotes and had several "appraisals" of our roof indicating that our roof would be stable enough for solar panels. On the day of the install, LA Solar drilled multiple holes through the ceiling in FIVE different rooms of our home; they didn't even notice their mistake, and would have continued drilling hole after hole through our ceiling were it not for my wife notifying them of their serious mistake. They did a sloppy and careless job patching the holes, with sealant looking through onto a brand new rug in our office. Post install, we began to experience leaks throughout our home, and it seemed like every time LA Solar went on our roof to correct and fix their mistake, they created more issues, whether that was drilling even MORE holes in our ceiling, or incorrectly installing flashing on our roof and on our chimney. Their work was shoddy and substandard, and of course, they're now repudiating all responsibility for the leaks in our roof. It's been over a year, and we continue to experience leaks and less-than-optimal solar production due to the fact that we've had to put tarps on our roof to prevent the leaks (LA Solar had to come out three separate times to re-tarp the roof because they couldn't figure out how to apply a simple tarp to a roof).At this point, LA Solar has cut off all communication with us and has abandoned their obligations. They are in breach of their roof-leak warranty and the guarantees in our contract, and refuses to reimburse us for repairs that we've had to undertake as a consequence of their low quality workmanship. They don't care about you after they get paid; their salespeople will say anything to get you to sign. Their communication post-install (even before the leak problems) is substandard and far below expectations.... read more
