The Solar Company Customer Reviews

See what some of our customers are really saying

Most people are aware by now that online review sites, such as Yelp, may not reflect the true nature of a company’s customer service level. A handful of poor reviews can have the power to overshadow the abundance of good reviews, relegating them to a filtered section and creating a false impression of a business’s performance.


Please be assured that we have addressed any negative reviews on various online review sites of a less-than-stellar experience and have done everything in our power to improve the customers’ experience.

We have over 2,500 happy customers all over Northern California that have switched to solar. The customer reviews below are from direct correspondence with our customers and we are proud to share them. And if you’d like to share your review with us, please email us: info (at)


Mike & Kathy H.
“Just passed our 5 year anniversary with our solar installation.  Absolutely the best decision we ever made.  According to our inverter readout we’ve prevented 54,103 pounds….over 27 tons….of carbon from reaching the atmosphere.  Feels wonderful every time I look at it.  And that number keeps growing and growing and growing….. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.”

Casey G.
“My energy bill is nonexistent…They were awesome, and it was very quick. They got me in within a month of me requesting their service.”

John W.
“The Solar Company impressed us on so many different levels.  They assessed our usage and designed a system to off-set our electric bill. They communicated with updates regularly and everything Jason and their team told me was accurate. The Solar Company runs an honest company. And 7 months later after having our electric bill eliminated, it’s obvious they are trustworthy.”

Bruce G.
“They seemed to be continuously working from the time they arrived until they completed the install, did the final cleanup, and departed.”

Ruth A.
“I am very pleased with it, and it’s worth looking into…I like the fact that my PG&E bill is way down, and they have been very good as far as following through. If there is a problem, they will follow through with it.”

James D.
“Every time I turn the lights on, I think about them. It is the easiest way to go, and you get a rebate. PG&E rates will go up, and the solar cost will stay the same. They were there when I needed them, especially the salesperson who was professional and on the ball.”

“[They] were very professional, courteous, and efficient.  They kept me completely in the loop during the installation and addressed any questions or concerns I had.  Their workmanship was very good and they cleaned up completely after the installation.”

He listened to my concern and no elephant can rub its back on it…Usually, salespeople don’t know the product or salesmanship, but not in their case.”
