There are now more solar power companies operating in Michigan than ever before and more choice of solar products and solar installation companies to speak to about a solar system. The solar tax credit, great long term savings, net metering and an abundance of zero down solar lease and solar loan products are making home solar more popular.
Right across the solar industry in the United States consumer reviews have shown that local installers enjoy the highest levels of customer satisfaction. The large corporate solar companies such as Vivint Solar, Solar City Tesla and Sunrun have much lower reviews scores than local solar companies.
The team at modern mill solar did a superb job. From the solar professional Randy coming to my house and explaining the while process to the installers that provided a professional atmosphere while they worked I am very happy with the job done and highly recommend them for your solar installation. Go Green!!!... read more

We are thrilled with our new panels. They are less obvious than I thought they would be which is nice. Our salesperson, Troy, was wonderful. He offered to help in every way possible so we were comfortable with what we were getting and what was happening. Very responsive too. We also wanted to take advantage of the current tax write-off.... read more

We started our solar project in March of this year, and realized that one of the first steps would be to convince our Home Owners Association (HOA) that solar was a good idea for our neighborhood. They did not have any policy in place, so we introduced them to the project, with Harvest Energy presenting at one of the board meetings.
There was interest from the HOA board, but they needed a little more time and background information, and of course they needed to come up with some language to craft their policy. Working with John Blattner of Harvest Energy, I had decided to use SunPower panels, based on their efficiency and aesthetic appeal. We chose the Signature Black X21 350 W panels with anti-reflective glass.
As we wound through the regulations and governmental permit requirements, Harvest Energy kept me updated on the process. By August we had received all the necessary permissions and permits, and the HOA had put together a simple, yet comprehensive policy. Once we got the official go ahead from our HOA, the panels were installed and after a couple weeks and the final inspection by our electricity supplier, DTE, the system was energized we started generating electricity on October 2. Once we had all the permits, the installation went quickly and smoothly, only taking about 3 days.
The process was long, but this is what you can expect when you start from zero. Ours was the first house in our neighborhood to put in solar energy generation, so it had to follow the process. I appreciate the legwork done by John Blattner of Harvest Energy, but also the work done by our HOA to come up with a reasonable policy in a relatively short time. They are all volunteers, so they were doing their work in the evenings and weekends to come up with a policy. Special thanks to our Architecture Enforcement Committee chair for creating the language for the policy.
Now that we are producing, I am really satisfied with the overall result. The panels look great and are generating enough electricity over the past week to offset over 80% of our electricity demand. We sourced the project with an expectation of meeting 62% of our needs. Of course, it will change as the amount of sunlight changes, but so far I am really happy with the production.... read more

Midwest installed an 18.9 kw ground mounted system for us that was an especially challenging set of circumstances. Without going into all the details, let's just say they went above and beyond to do whatever it took to make this work, and stayed at their quoted amount even after a lot of challenges. Top notch organization!... read more
Strawberry Solar was an easy company to work with. Their communication was much better than most contractors, and were very comfortable using digital systems to get things done. As the whole project started and finished during the winter there were numerous delays due to weather and subcontractors, but they were proactive through texts/email to ensure I knew what was going on. Bonus: they were the lowest bidder!... read more
I have had Green Panel add on onto my existing system about four years ago. Their price was very competitive and their work was excellent. However, what was outstanding was their service afterward. Some of the mini-inverters from my original system started to fail. I wanted to avoid the cost of having them replaced. The inverters themselves was still under warranty so there was no cost there. I told Green Panel I thought I could replace the mini-inverters. The did all of the leg work for me to claim my replacements under warranty without charge. They also reconfigured my internet site showing the new inverters without charge. I know this was a fair amount of work that I offered to pay for and they declined my offer. They have done other things to help me save money, Solar panels are a big investment but Green Panel does everything they can do to keep the cost down. I have recommended them to several people.... read more
We made the mistake of getting taken on a hard sell involving grant money that of course Ecojiva would handle the whole process. They rushed the project to completion before the grant process completed, combined with an easily correctable error on their part; which meant that we were disqualified for the grant with no option to re-apply. The equipment is working well, but the 3-5 year payback we were sold on is more like 15-20 years. We are not the only farmers in our area that this happened to. If your buying with the premise of getting a grant or some other financial assistance, take your time and do your own homework. All ecojiva cared about was getting the system sold. Learn from our mistake.... read more
