I first dealt with Solar Energy World (SEW) a couple of years ago to obtain a 3.7 KWH system. Had a good experience back then. When I was ready to double the capacity to a 7.4KWH system, there was no question who I was going to go with, SEW. Very professional from top to bottom. Looking forward to many sunny days!
Solar Energy World did the job as was agreed. We are very happy with the equipment and the competence of their install technicians.
Everyone on the team, especially the lead, was absolutely fabulous.
Solar Energy World did a very professional job of installing the solar system. They helped us work through all the paperwork and everything we needed to deal with BGE. They provided a monitoring system so we can see how much energy the system is producing online. They helped us get set up to sell the solar energy renewable credits.
I constantly try to solicit customers for Solar Energy, both for the incentives and because they are a great company. I am a licensed Master Electrician. I would work for Solar World in 8 years when I retire from government service if they would have me. I am that impressed with the company.
I can't say enough good things about Solar Would. They answered all my questions and were very professional.
Sean Clark... very courtious and professional.... He is always there if you need him or have a question and if he does not know the question he will find out ASAP... Great Guy
They got the job finished ahead of schedule and were very professional and courteous.
Everyone was helpful and friendly. SEW got the system up and inspected fast
I am most satisfied with the crew that came to do the work because they were very professional and courteous.
Eric Winkler was extremely helpful!
Their willingness to make things right, and their communication was solid along the way.
The follow up was great. When we did have issues they made sure they were addressed. Sierra and Brent cotton were very pleasant. Jeff was also very helpful.
The installation was great. I am an engineer and was impressed by their first class work.
We had a few companies come to our house and speak with us about going solar. After talking with the SEW salesperson about SUNPOWER solar panels and doing the additional research on thermal panels the choice was easy. SEW installed the panels as promised. We received our rebates and tax incentives without issue. I would definitely recommend SEW to anyone thinking about going solar.
My sales rep, Jack Bolel, was a pleasure to work with; he was prompt in his assistance and was available throughout the installation and filing process. One delay by SEW in submitting paperwork to obtaining the HOA approval delayed my project by 3 weeks. Fortunately, I was closely following the process. Installation was efficient and crew was professional and friendly. Again, fortunately for me, I had to go in the attic to replace furnace filter and noticed that a duct was knocked out during the wiring install. I informed Jack abot this, and it was fixed the very next morning. Lastly, the inverter was not properly "commissioned" which prevented me from creating a monitoring account with Sun Power. This again was promptly resolved. Overall, I am satisfied with the project, and staff at SEW. As any big project, I suggest, you should stay on top to assure the progress and quality.
Excellent job, so far the solar system works great making electric 10 to 1 times the amount used. Great Job.
They were very good and we were very happy with them.
They did high quality work and followed through with their promises. Everything was good and timely, except for what happened with the weather.
All in all, I think Solar Energy World is a good option for an installer if you're seriously interested in solar panels for your residence. It's clear that they're a smaller company, which comes with some pros and some cons. But they did a quality installation job that passed inspection the first time around. I think their primary weakness is with communications during the phases of the installation process. (EG. The engineer they sent out to take photos of my attic and electric panel couldn't really answer questions I had about alternate ways to mount some additional panels on my property. He basically just wanted to know exactly where on my roof I wanted the panels, and wasn't able to make recommendations about much of anything. I didn't realize that the initial design the sales consultant put together with me was so "set in stone" as what they were going to do as the final project.)On the plus side, these guys work with multiple manufacturers of panels and inverters and can either do a solar loan or sell you a system outright without any obvious vested interest in you doing it one way or the other. The big names like Solar City only want to offer you the solar leases (claiming they'll sell you a system outright too, but pricing it so high it doesn't appear to make economic sense).
