Great company to do business with and would highly recommend. Just with any project there were a few hiccups along the way but was handled very well. Panels are performing better than expected and stayed on budget. Would like to thank everyone at P.E.G solar for a great install.

Sky NRG Solar recently completed the solar install at my home and I could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in solar. I spent a lot of time researching various PV solar panels, components, and design considerations. When I started contacting local solar install companies I found that almost all provided little or no choice on components, panels, and other add-ons; I felt my time was wasted researching and I would not be able to get exactly what I wanted. When Rob from Sky NRG Solar reached out to me he had a much different tone, he was excited to deliver the system that I envisioned and provide a solution that would exceed our expectations and meet our energy goals. Sky NRG Solar clearly separated themselves from competitors by the following:1. Allowing solar panel choice which was very important because warranties differ between manufacturers. 2. Providing inside wiring of conduit rather than having metal conduit exposed along a roofline and down the side of the home; and the resulting look is worth it. 3. My installation also included a consumption meter, no other vendor offered this. Without the consumption meter you are only seeing a third of the picture, you only see how much solar you a producing; however, with the consumption meter I can see how much I am self-consuming from solar, how much I am using from the power company, and most importantly when my utilization goes up. This truly gives a full energy picture within your home and makes you very aware of the energy you produce and consume on a regular basis.4. Throughout the entire experience they treated every aspect of the design and install as if it were their own home. The placement of components like the inverter were all strategic, ultimately minimizing costs for improvements in the future and allowing us to quickly add additional components (like a whole home battery or electric vehicle charger) for when we are ready without having to relocate any existing components.5. Finally, Rob and his team have a genuine passion for solar energy and it is displayed by the work they do and the finished product.After the first visit Rob was able to provide a detailed quote with sizing, pricing, and component selection. Unlike other vendors I corresponded with he was quickly able to provide component specification sheets that provided all the details needed for the system that was to be installed, this even included the rail color and hardware. We went through some iterations and changes in the quote and finally decided on a different panel type than originally planned, he was able to price quickly and update the quote.Rob provided all the information necessary for all HOA approval docs, he took care of all the county permit applications and design documents, and the coordination with the power company for our net meter install. I simply had to post the permit on our front door. The detail included in the documentation was second to none. Once the HOA approval was done and the permits were ready he was able to coordinate the delivery of the panels and components to our home with us. Shortly after the delivery his team got to work installing; they worked long and hard to get the install completed as quickly as they did. Most importantly their entire team treated our home like it was their own home; very respectful and clean. The result was visually attractive, functional from day one, and insightful regarding our power production and consumption.... read more

We reached out to eight companies for our project. We received quotes from all of them except one (who insisted that my wife and I both be present to suffer through their two hour sales pitch).I asked a lot of questions and proposed all sorts of ideas to each of the vendors. Some of the ideas were legitimate and some were completely crazy. Only one vendor advised me against doing my crazy ideas – Trent Taliaferro said, “I’d love to sell you a bigger system but there is no way you will get your money out of it. It just doesn’t make sense to do that.” All the other venders were going to sell me things they knew I did not need. That is why I selected Trent/Teakwood.They were not the cheapest but they were below the average of the rest. Nearly a year later, I am still very pleased with their service and quality.

In 2016, I bought my first solar energy system from Renewable Energy Corp. As we decided about what company we wanted to use and what type of system we wanted to get, we learned that when grid power is lost, a home with solar panels will still lose power. Therefore we researched back-up battery systems. We also decided that we did not want to lease our system, we wanted to purchase it. Purchasing a system meant that we were able to gain the tax credits for our system, upgrade it as we wished and did not have to worry about decisions to sell our home. Renewable Energy Corporation was the best decision we could have made for our solar system. They came to our home and gave us real feedback on the strengths and limitations of our location. They did not try to oversell their product to us. We didn’t have to sign any agreement or contract in order to get a price quote. The quote was true to value and they worked a few different options so that we could consider how much we could afford and ways in which to upgrade over time as needed or wanted. When you purchase solar, ABSOLUTELY get the battery back-up system. I had lived in my home for 16 years and only had one major power outage during a hurricane, so I didn’t think that it was a huge necessity. But, I chose to do the back-up because I have a family and I wanted the peace of mind. The first year we had solar, a snow plow took down the wires less than a quarter mile from our house. Power was out over night (about 9 hours) in a snow storm. The battery system automatically switched the house over with no power disruption (I don’t even have to reset my clocks). My family stayed warm and had the water we needed due to our solar battery back-up. In August of 2017 a tornado blew through our community taking out power for 22 hours. Again, we were able to save our refrigerated foods and have water and keep our sump pump going when our neighbors lost power. Renewable Energy Corp has continued to follow-up with us on how our system is working and we have needed no maintenance, nor had any problems since installation. This summer we opted to maximize our roof space with more panels and again the salesmen and installation crews were extremely professional, friendly and helpful. I recommend this company as highly as possible.... read more

The entire team at Sustainable Energy Systems went to bat for me. I was fighting to get panels on my roof and had several companies bidding for my install. Sustainable not only took my proposed installation seriously, but went the extra mile to make sure i was getting the right system for me, but also came up with solutions - not excuses on how to get the job done.My roof was "slightly" higher than most, and required a little extra effort to perform the instal. Sustainable Energy Systems exceeded my expectations in every way. I will absolutely recommend them to anyone that asks.... read more

Here's the short: You may save a few hundred dollars with another competitor in the area -- but we're talking about solar panels here which means you're spending a few thousand bucks at minimum, probably closer to $12-15,000 though realistically. My point is, don't waste your time shopping around to find the best price -- everyone in the area is going to cost about the same so go with someone who has the best reputation and experience. IPS of VA has been around since 1993 which puts them ahead of their competitors by a long shot. They went above and beyond to answer all my questions related to the solar technology in layman's terms that both me and my wife could easily follow. They installed our system in less than a half a day and it's been almost a year now without a single problem.... read more
I went with this company because I liked the fact that it was a small family company that had been in business for a while. The owner, Charles, seemed to really know solar and was excited to be in the business. Once the contract was signed and he had the large down payment, he disappeared. He was bad at returning calls, and worse at showing up when he said he would. During the installation, the panel installers had no knowledge of electricity and the electrician did not know much about the panels. A year later, I still have two panels that were supposed to make my barn off-grid that have never worked. I got many promises to fix it, but have heard nothing at all in several months.... read more
