Devices are still not working. Have not completed the full approvals and interconnect process yet.
All the positive experiences were wiped out after I made the final payment. No follow-up with DTE, the system did not work and was not ready when DTE did show up, no follow-up with the monitoring company, no responses to my emails and phone calls. So disappointed.
So easy to work with. They explained everything in great detail and the process was so easy!
Theyve worked very hard. City turned down 2 designs
I have already recommended to all my curious friends to go with Michigan Solar Solutions as I found the process to be very helpful and they did a lot to eliminate stress through the whole process.
I'm unsure. While the system ultimately works well, installation was delayed and problematic.
MSS did a very good job keeping to the schedule outlined when the system was ordered. And the installation was done in a timely, professional manner. The weakest part of the process was a lack of status reports between the time of the order to when MSS was ready to schedule installation. But calling and talking to people there provided the status.
This was my 2nd project with MSS. Everyone who works there keeps you informed of what's going on and if they don't know, they will find an answer for you. I do plan on using them for a 3rd project and maybe even a 4th project, but a 3rd one for sure. All the people are great to work with.
The experience with Michigan Solar Solutions has been fantastic! Our sales representative - Dave Brock - was very informative and answered all of our questions. We never once felt pressured to purchase. We were given a variety of options to fit our budget, and we feel comfortable and confident with the well-informed choices we made. The installers were very professional, kind and courteous! From the site survey to the final electrical installation - the crews were respectful of our home, worked efficiently, and cleaned up their work areas. The communication with the administrative/office staff has been wonderful - very responsive and proactive when dealing with our energy provider (DTE). Overall, it has been a wonderful experience and we highly recommend Michigan Solar Solutions!
I found the work done by Michigan Solar Solutions to be very commendable. I have and will continue to tell others about the work done for me. The installation here was a little complicated due to the placement on the panels (on an outbuilding) so there was more consideration of the wiring and PVC pipe placement. Everything went well, however, and if there was any real difficulty, I was not aware. The electricians made everything work. Just now, I'm waiting for the last steps with DTE paperwork and then I'll be mostly untethered from them. Thank you, Michigan Solar Solutions for making this big change happen for me!
Michigan Solar Solutions treated us very well, really knew how to get things done, and provided us with the state of the art system that we were looking for. Other companies were less responsive, gave us the sense that we were not a big enough client for them, and they did not seem to understand our particular needs. The installation experience with Michigan Solar Solutions went very smoothly, and so far we are very happy.
Overall a great experience!
They did an excellent job on the installation.
I have already recommended MSS to a friend! MSS was recommended to me by a friend. No pressure sales and great follow-up and installation team.
The installation was done quickly and efficiently.
Michigan Solar Solutions was largely outstanding. The only negative was our sales experience I think. It wasn't awful or anything, Ryan del Gaudio was our sales rep. But after we signed the agreement I felt things just fell off a bit and it was frustrating for sure. We had the home inspection and out of it we decided to replace the electrical panel to 200 Amp and make some other improvements. The electricians quoted $2700 for the job, and that was all I got. On August 2nd I asked what that gets broken down by item, which isn't an unusual question, since we had the panel replaced about four years ago and it was about $1000. I thought it would be an easy question, and was being asked to sign an updated contract, but wanted to know what all was in that $2700. Two days later I asked if Ryan had heard from the electrician the cost break down, supposedly no answer. Two more days, and I had to follow up again (So it is now August 6th when I sent that question). It wasn't until August 9th, one week after I first asked what the cost breakdown was, that I heard back from Ryan. He said he got a response and it was just "There are various costs, like permits and inspection, and parts". Well, yeah, that is obvious but seems like he didn't actually ask. If I am being charged an amount then it had to come from somewhere, and $2700 isn't some insignificant amount, in a week I couldn't get a cost breakdown for the planned electrical upgrades, and I never actually did. I wanted this to move ahead so I signed the updated contract. But to say I was upset is an understatement.
There were other instances as well of no response to questions, requiring multiple follow ups.
These were small bumps overall in the over three months in all it took getting the system installed, and I know MSS has other customers. Everyone else I dealt with though as I said was great. I don't have much else to say aside from the notes I left below. I would still recommend MSS, just possibly look at having someone work with someone else on the sales front. I shouldn't feel like I am just tossed aside once the contract is signed and I need help.
I was extremely pleased with Michigan Solar Solutions and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
All around great experience!
Michigan Solar Solutions did an excellent installation.
I am very concerned about Climate change and felt that the efforts I was making to reduce my carbon footprint were not enough. Since installing my Solar Panels I have greatly reduced my electric needs, my last electric bill for Sept was $9.25 I feel that I am now doing my share to help our planet and the system is almost paying for it's self
Outstanding service and quality products.
Everyone was straightforward and knowledgeable, also easy to contact when needed.
MSS did all the leg work for me. They dealt with Consumers, all permits, all inspections, they scheduled everything, I didn’t have to do anything. I highly recommend MSS!
They were fantastic from design to the installation. And even after the fact with checking in with us.
I had a great experience. They were very transparent and great with communication. I felt like I always had someone that I could get in touch with that knew what was going on and that was great.
Going into this there's a lot of bureaucratic comments in this day in age. As a homeowner, I didn't know where to begin with this project. They handled all of it for me and did it efficiently.
We have had our solar panels for about 6 months and are very pleased with their performance! They look great and our utility bills are much smaller. AND, most importantly, our solar panels are providing electricity without sending carbon into the atmosphere.
Michigan Solar Solutions did a great job with the installation, and as I am very technical (I'm an electrical engineer) I had a lot of questions. MSS answered them and allowed me to fully analyze if solar worked for me. Their sales person Brad was open and patient as I worked through my decision. Other companies tried to "sell" me on their solution with flashy logos and "deals", but hid a lot of information so I could not do the analysis. MSS gave me what I needed, and I would very much recommend them in the future. And when I was done, they were the best value for what I needed.
The installation crew was knowledgeable and excited about the project.
I have already recommended to neighbors and friends.
Michigan Solar did a great job installing our 36 panel array.
...And already have recommended you to three of our closest friends, who will be contacting you if and when they lift the cap on solar again. Thank you.
They did a good job for a very reasonable price for the equipment ordered.
Areas Of Satisfaction - I believe you can never know how good a company is until something goes wrong.
