Review for Superior Solar Systems
PV Solar is working Great!
Office location: Altamonte Springs, FL 32714
This review may be lengthy; however I want to explain why I recommend Superior Solar, my representative, Michael Boykin at Superior Solar, and how our system has been working.
We are not rich, we drive older inexpensive cars, we are on a budget, and we are careful to consider purchases. I had been curious about solar for two reasons: it is good for the environment, and I thought if it was done correctly, the correct size, and with the correct bank loan, we could potentially be paying ZERO additional money to buy solar. Fortunately, the Federal Tax Credit of 30% made installing a solar PV system on our home possible with what I was trying to achieve financially.
Currently we have had our system long enough that I can compare the data. I have been collecting data from each electric bill we receive and comparing the KWh usage per month with solar power vs. last year’s data (without solar).
I don’t want to disclose my financial details on this review (bank loan APR, total system cost, actual tax credit), but I do want to share that only 6 months of data has shown that I have been paying only $7 per month (actual number): For example, (not actual numbers for privacy): My average savings with solar has been $98 per month and my monthly payment to the bank to pay off the solar has been $105 per month. AND keep in mind, that I OWN the system. Once my loan is paid off, I will not have to pay close to anything for electric! And right now, instead of paying $100 to the electric company I am paying $100 to pay the loan. Almost ZERO additional money to buy Solar.
I had worked the numbers and potential savings for months trying to determine if this could be a reality. That is where Superior Solar’s unbelievable customer service comes in…. Michael Boykin is who I worked with at Superior Solar. Michael made me feel like I was his only priority. I must have emailed him 1-4 times a day with the most random questions. He promptly and professionally replied to each query. And many times, on the weekends or late at night. He took his time on the phone and on email correspondence to help me understand solar, the costs, benefits, and the science of solar.
I highly recommend speaking Michael Boykin at Superior Solar. I never felt pressure from him. Michael knew that the solar system would sell itself, I just had to keep asking the questions and doing the research to convince myself. I honestly kept thinking, “This is too good to be true…. there must be a catch”. I decided that the only way to really know for sure was to just do it. And here I am, with all this data now showing me that there is no catch…It was a smart financial decision.
As a neat benefit, our system comes with the ability to plug a power chord directly into the inverter when the grid power goes down. Our solar is tied into the main city electric grid. When the grid power went down a couple months ago, I plugged into my system directly and could power our refrigerator and several other appliances…and, I had power to spare. I was in the process of running an extension chord to our neighbor’s house to give them power when the grid power finally did come back on. Nobody had to think about trying to dig the gas-powered generator out of the garage, put gas in it, make all that noise…. we just plugged in and were back in business! And we were the heroes of the neighborhood who still had cold sodas and ice!
If you are even the slightest bit curious about solar electric, call or email Michael Boykin (Michael.Boykin@SuperiorSolar.com). He will take the time to educate you and answer all your questions. To him there was no stupid question, he knows this is a new thing to most and he is sincere in his desire to educate people about the benefits of solar and how it can be a smart financial decision. There will be no sales pressure, he and the rest of the people at Superior Solar will work with your power needs and financial situation to help you get solar power.
