WindSoleil Solar and Wind Energy

EnergySage Rating Value: 5.0 from 3 reviews


The last review from EnergySage:

Windsoliel is an excellent company to do business with. When we needed solar panels for our house they were there to guide us through the process and provided us with great service. We got our solar panels installed in July 2019 and even till today when we call with any problems or service interruptions Teddy makes sure we are taken care off. Teddy also has a great referral program. If you are looking for solar panel’s look no further you have come to the right place.

The last review from EnergySage:

They only priced for 2 microinvertors, this wont allow you to monitor each panel and know when a certain panel has quit working.
Secondly, I sent a request for them to revise their quote and never heard from them. Dont know if that was an issue because of going through Energysage or “all three contractors who sent quotes ignored the request”, hmm …….!

Sales guy was nice. Signed a contract paid 1/2 the funds. The project manager(s) have been terrible. They are over a month past their contract install date. Now they are trying to change the contract to not include the install costs. Aviod the scam. Find an honest broker.

The last review from EnergySage:

I got a knock at my door regarding a free solar quote which sparked our interest about going solar. I got a quote from a national seller which was ok. Like any quote I shopped around a few different places. Most of the national installers seemed pretty expensive. I found this place, which was really local, and gave them a call. I worked with Ray and we sat down and he educated me more than anyone else had. He knew all the answer for our area. Their quote was the best and on top of it they’re local! I got a great system installed by friendly employees. There’s no doubt I made the right choice by going with IRE and will be happy to recommend them in the future! Thanks guys!

Windfree Solar

Established: 2009

EnergySage Rating Value: 5.0 from 9 reviews


The last review from EnergySage:

Design/engineering: Windfree did a great job evaluating and optimizing our property’s evaluation for PV solar potential. They did some optioneering, factoring in shading, as well as various panel selection, giving us the “best bang for the buck”.
Permitting: This was a slow and slightly aggravating 4 month process (primarily due to our unusual, stringent local requirements and variances required). However, Windfree handled all of it.
Installation: Went very quickly and the team was courteous and safe.
I can certainly recommend the team, and will be monitoring the system closely for expected vs. actual performance.

Stateline Solar

Established: 2017

EnergySage Rating Value: 5.0 from 9 reviews


The last review from EnergySage:

If your considering adding solar generation to your property then you should talk with the team at Stateline Solar. I was talking with various suppliers when I wanted to go solar, but the further involved I got the sooner I realized that I needed someone local who was rooted in the area and who wasn’t going to simply install the project and be gone. Their has been little annoying things come up, nothing major but the team at Stateline Solar has been there and they have made sure that everything has gotten back on track and the communication during those processes has also been very good, and it’s awfully hard to ignore the value in that kind of help. When they come out to discuss a project they brought samples of everything that would be used. I have seen other installations from other installers and I really must say mine is by far a more durable and better looking than most. They are a good group!!
