NuWatt Energy

Established: 2010

EnergySage Rating Value: 4.5 from 52 reviews


The last review from EnergySage:

I went with Nuwatt because I was very comfortable with their sales rep Maan. He was very thorough and patient in our decision making since this is a big investment. The project caught a few snags from Eversource but Nuwatt team was very responsive in getting the job done. The 8.16 kW PV system looks great on my roof and I am recommending Nuwatt to my neighbors and friends!

SunPower

Established: 1985

EnergySage Rating Value: 4.0 from 235 reviews


The last review from EnergySage:

Evidently, my 3+ year old SunPower system is not compatible with SunVault. I have rev. C of the micro inverters…Evidently, SunPower only supports rev E&G …. VERY disappointing. Backwards compatibility of less than 3+ years??? Guess Rev D is out of luck as well…. what would that be 2 or less years?…. I though buying “Made In America” would have also included support worthy of such a statement ….

The last review from EnergySage:

Pingo Solar is a straightforward, knowledgeable, no-BS outfit. I wanted to upgrade my existing 2kW system to use smart inverters, and add more capacity to offset rising electrical costs.

Solar’s Smart

Established: 2006

EnergySage Rating Value: 4.5 from 10 reviews


The last review from EnergySage:

In September of 2018 we had enough of SDGE price gouging. We decided to go solar and decided to use Solar’s Smart since my brother had used the company before. Mark Miller, the owner, came out and helped us to determine the best location and the needed number of panels for our home. What I really appreciated about the whole installation was that Mark kept his word throughout the entire project! There were no surprise extra fees, no sloppy work and no mess left as the job ended. There are many solar company’s to choose from but a business that does what they say and stands behind their work is difficult to find!! When a small problem arose Mark was right there ready to take care of it. If you are looking for a company you can rely on use Solar’s Smart.

The last review from EnergySage:

EnergyPal was great. I got three prices and there’s was the best. Process was very professional, work was done when they said it would be. Actually finished the installation ahead of schedule. Electricians, Building Dept and Electric Utility all commented on the high quality installation. We started getting free power March 2020! Very happy with the entire process.

Ra Solar was recommended to me by two of my neighbors, and I couldn’t have made a better decision. Right from the pricing stage through to installation, city inspection, and turning on the system, my experience working with Varney and his team was excellent.
