Review for Highlight Solar
San Jose, CA, CA
Excellent Top of the Line Prof Service from HighlightSolar
I already worked with Dean (President/Owner) of HighlightSolar company, exclusively and extensively in detail from June 30 until Jul 9 and I was highly impressed by Dean's generosity, communication skill set, professionalism and technical expertise in answering all questions in detail and with immense patience (including a wonderful smile on his face all the time).
I already received the quote and sign the contract subsequently few days ago with Dean.
I can't wait now in next couple of weeks for HighlightSolar to start the process of installing the Solar PV Electric and Solar Pool Thermal Heating System configurations.
The price quote I received including the extension warranty for both systems was fabulous, fantastic and very competitive.
I am very happy that I pulled in the plug and decided to go with HighlightSolar because of their excellent customer quality relationship, sticking to customer for the life time even after warranty term is over followed by resolving all small minor details and issues with customer, based on excellent awesome 5-star (perhaps folks would have given 13+ star if there was an option on Yelp)
I worked and received quotation with bunch of other Solar PV Electric System companies in the bay area but I couldn't receive the satisfactory competitive price quote nor the customer relationship response or detail information on Solar Energy Production, Utility Savings and Property Appreciation $ amount along with Profitability Index parameters and net cash gain value #'s.
Dean's PV Electric Solar Executive report is way too cool with all #'s lined down in a very systematic and organized manner. I am a hard core # guy ( being Electrical/ Electronics Engineer by background) and Dean just amazed me every time, I deal with him on email communication.
I am already impressed with the way Dean came out with the price offer, paper work, his flexibility to listen and understand the customer concern with no push back options on the table.
I can't wait in next couple of weeks before end of July 2016 to get Dean's crew members viz. Jessie (Production Scheduler), Doug (Installation Captain) and other team members to jump on my roof, and get started the process of installing the Solar PV Electric LG320 panels and Solar Pool Thermal UMA SunStar STR-40 collectors.
Dean was also flexible to work with me for an option on my personal preference and choice decision to have Pentair 520705 EasyTouch 8PSC-IC40 Single Body with SCG Integration and IC40 Cell Pool and Spa System install (replacement for SolarTouch Kit), although my Pool Professional Company "Pool Pros" are now scheduled to install and hook up the EasyTouch system to UMA STR-40 collectors. I am going to keep SolarTouch controller as a back up in case something weirdo happens with my EZ-Touch, touch wood, although am highly confident and hope that Pentair brand of equipment's never leave you in the hose.
I will return and write another review in end of Aug when both systems (Solar Electric and Solar Thermal) are fully functioning, in a full blown production mode and I can't wait to enjoy the nice toasty 84 deg F warm pool water thereby increasing my family pool swim summer seasons from Apr to Oct along with generating my own electricity and getting almost 89% rid of PG&E monthly electric bills which are suppose to increase at an inflating rate of 3.99% per year.
This is ridiculous the rising electricity rental rate (with add on utility inflation of 3.99% per year) and on top of that there are no ROI (Return on Investment) on monthly electric bill payment and it makes absolute compete sense to go FULL GREEN with an usage of clean, renewal energy source (Sun Radiation energy ray's) and enjoy the dual benefits of Solar PV Electric and Solar Pool Thermal Pool Heating system technologies.
Moreover 2016 is the last year when Federal government tax incentive credit of 30% shall phased out and reduced to 20% in 2017 and thereby to 10% from 2018 onward.
So I want to definitely make sure, I get the max bang on my buck and keep that 30% tax credit (dollar by dollar reduction on 2016 taxable amount) in my pocket for a nice sweet vacation!! Go green go!!
