    My over all experience was very good during the sales, installation and testing phases. I am also marketing the services of S E W to my friends, business owners and neighbors through Yoscak Associates, LLC a 31 year old IT Data Center & Office System Company.

    The electrical install team for their determination and the roof installers. I had a great overall experience - but was impressed even with the professionalism and care of the panel install team. Not sure of the gentleman's name - but even the lead foreman on the panel install showed great enthusiasm for his work and cared how we thought.

    I would highly recommend Solar Energy World to anyone who is interested in solar power and have given our sales consultant card to at least two of my friends. The entire staff is first rate and is excellent in their communication and post installation follow-up/ Cannot say enough about Brent Cotton, our sales consultant and Geoff Mirkin,, the company president,

    I highly recommend Solar Energy World for their craftsmanship and the quality of their goods. I would like to see the price come down, but I believe that is the function of the market.

    SEW will court you with suave sales staff and assurances of easy/fast installation. Unfortunately, once the contract is signed, effective communication ceases. Promises made are forgotten and staff is full of excuses and hollow apologies. This is common with many solar companies as they are single sale, not a repeat business. If you choose to work with SEW, make sure you have EVERYTHING in writing and expect to check and recheck all documentation and paperwork. And even if it is in writing, expect that things will be "forgotten" unless you remind the staff several times (make sure these reminders are in writing as well). Overall, I am happy with solar power, but SEW's business practices made very rough sailing of a promised easy cruise.

    Working with Solar Energy World was a joy. They took care of all required permits and made the project for me basically a 'Hands Off' event. The staff was very knowledgeable, answering all questions; no hidden fees or changes made after the initial survey was completed and agreed upon. The crew that completed the installation on the house were competent and demonstrated a high degree of workmanship; and gladly took time out to answer all questions I had as they did the install. I would, and have, recommended to my neighbors Solar Energy World and the benefits that I have gained because of them.

    Overall, my experience with SEW was nothing less than outstanding- from initial contact to installation. The representatives explained everything from performance and operation to installation. When they were installing the solar panels, I was up on the roof asking questions and they've explained everything they were doing. In the process, I had confidence in what they were doing and that the panels will perform as expected.

    Solar Energy World provided good value for the money. They met all the timelines that they set, and they passed inspection on the very first go around.
