Review for AMI Energy Solutions
Seriously NOT Happy...
Nothing but frustration and worry and a feeling of being screwed since we signed the contract with AMI. They kept telling us they were waiting for a permit for installation, but they didn't know the county permit office had called us to tell us the permit was ready, almost 6 weeks before installation. We don't like being lied to when we are spending $66,500. The one year deferred interest clock started ticking on one of our loans when we were funded in September. But our system wasn't installed until November 25th. We actually ended up with 3 different loans from 3 different companies in order to purchase the system.
We paid $66,500 for our 52 panel system. Think carefully before you get rooked into solar. It doesn't seem to be what they say it is when they are trying to sell it to you. Once you are funded you are screwed. Kinda like Obama Care... We didn't even produce 1/2 of the power in December of 2014 that we used in December of 2013, and according to AMI our system is huge! Buyer Beware!!!
We still don't have the paperwork they promised by years end, so we could get the rebate from the government when we file our taxes. Once your system is funded and they have the money, it's like pulling hens teeth to get help or answers from them. Without that rebate, we will end up with huge monthly payments after the "Interest free" period. Plus we are still paying for electricity which we were supposedly going to be able to save in an account to pay the loans.
AMI says they will give us a $3500 "rebate" to go toward our loans, IF, we recommend them to other people. There's no way we can recommend AMI to a friend. Hell we wouldn't even recommend them to an enemy! We are so very disappointed and probably screwed. It's almost impossible to get anyone in that company to actually answer their phone during business hours, and a call back from a message left only seems to happen when you post your dissatisfaction publicly. There are too many issues we have had to cover in this post.... The person who referred us to AMI has had real problems with them too. It took over 90 days for her system to be turned on after it was installed and who do you think they blame? Sadly she's 70 years old and timid about complaining.
It all sounded so wonderful when they came to sell to us. Once you sign, and the right of rescission period is over....We are seriously worried. Just sayin'....
What type of installation was this?
What year was your system installed?
What is your property's zip code?
What is the size of the system installed?
Please tell us more
Would you recommend this installer to others?
