Fantastic Experience from Start to Finish!

Sunlight Solar Energy did a fantastic job from start to finish. They communicated well from one stage to the next, walked us through the system’s easy operation in the end, and left us with a simple-to-understand book with our system’s design and operation, warranties and installation documents, and manuals and data sheets. They stressed that they’re always available for any questions we have, and the energy tax credits made the decision to go solar an easy choice for us!

Great experience, start to finish!

When I first contacted Sunlight Solar for a site assessment to see if my home would work for solar, I received a friendly and quick response and set up an assessment. Turns out solar was a fit and quickly had options and a proposal to review. I was impressed with my interactions to that point and the bid itself, I didn’t bother checking with other companies. They were excellent all the way through design, permitting, and installation. New to solar, I appreciated them explaining things along the way. I’m now up and running with a 5 kW system and recommend Sunlight Solar to anyone interested in solar. It was an easier project for me than I first imagined, they handled everything!

On the way to Net Zero. Thank you SSE

Sunlight installed our second array. A small one, but one that will quite likely take us to an annual Net Zero. While our house provided some significant challenges in terms of siting, these folks were intrepid in making something work. They were also great about working with us, providing lots of information, and answering our questions. All in all a delightful bunch to work with and we are definitely pleased with the result.

Thumbs up

Excellent Experience

I interviewed 3 companies and Sunlight Solar was by far the most professional and thorough in explaining everything that would be involved. Therefore, I went with them and they did not disappoint. They gave me various estimates for different size systems. They installed the solar system on my roof in a timely manner and explained everything involved and left me with a binder of information to refer to. I would definitely recommend them for anyone who wants to install a solar system. I received my first electric bill since the installation, which was only a partial month, and the bill has gone down. Can’t wait to see the next bill when there will be a full month of being on the system.
