  • The whole team was professional and communicated very well. I always knew where we were in the project and why. Principally worked with Seth and Roy who were both great. The job was finished on time with minimal fuss. I really appreciated the thorough discussion and review of the current solar environment in California, what we needed based on our current and future usage rates, the clear spreadsheet layouts, what was possible based on our roof, and details on materials and installation. Absolutely would recommend this team to anyone and appreciated the fact that our panels were assembled in the U.S.

  • I highly recommend San Diego County Solar. I did my homework before selecting them. Solar can seem intimidating to understand but Mike was great at explaining the process, giving a fair and competitive quote, and delivering just what he said the team would. There were no surprises. I really can't say enough about how great the experience to work with SD County Solar. Roy got all the paperwork through the city and SDG&E. Tim and Ian led the install team and communicated every step of the way. This is a company with excellent people who do excellent work. Solar really is great to have and San Diego County Solar made it an easy process!

  • San Diego County Solar exceeded our expectations! We had a great feeling about them from the first phone call to our final Permission To Operate meeting! Seth was informative and honest with no high-pressure sales pitch. He was patient and answered all of our questions. The contractors they referred us to for our new roof and upgraded electrical panel were outstanding! Everyone who worked on our home was polite, efficient, and professional. The whole process went as expected and we couldn’t be happier. We highly recommend San Diego County Solar to anyone looking to go solar!

  • I had San Diego County Solar install a 5.7kw system on top of my granny flat in Carlsbad.  San Diego County Solar is simply the best solar panel installer in all of San Diego County.  Supporting a local business, not a publicly traded company, was an important factor in my decision for choosing San Diego County Solar.  Also, their price was the best.  I worked with Seth.  He is an industry expert and is passionate about what he does.  I found Seth to be so patient with me, and let me ask as many questions as I needed in order to make my decision.  I was surprised to see the projected ROI of the project to be just a little over 5 years!  It was a no brainer for me to move forward.  Seth really made my solar panel installation experience seamless from beginning to end, ensuring I was happy the whole way through.  Their entire crew is very courteous and respectful.  I'm very proud to have solar panels and I recommend San Diego County Solar to anyone who is on the fence about it.

  • We waited too long to get Solar and when we decided to do so, we had (3) companies provide an estimate.  The price and energy output were generally the same.  We selected San Diego County Solar because of the  detail and professionalism of Ken Roberts.  Based on the estimates, we sensed the difference would be quality of installation.  Ken was here every day and we couldn't be happier with the system.  I only wish we had done so several years ago.  It's nice not having to be concerned with the A/C running or when we can start the dishwasher and/or dryer.

  • Seth and the whole SDCS team was terrific.  Very professional throughout the entire process.  Seth walked me through every question and concern I had about selecting the right system design and equipment.  He was informative, educational, and friendly.  The install team did an incredible job with a very clean installation even paint matching the house for all the conduit.  I have already recommended SDCS to several friends and family members. Compared to other companies in which we got estimates from SDCS was VERY competitive and the most transparent with their pricing approach and ways to save.

  • San Diego County Solar provided excellent service, excellent workmanship, and an amazing experience from start to finish on our solar project in Escondido, CA. I interviewed 8 solar companies and San Diego County Solar impressed me the most with their depth of knowledge and customer centric consultative approach. I really liked that they are local and independent and can choose to source whatever solar parts and products fit the client's unique situation. San Diego County Solar is a results oriented, solutions focused team. The install looks fantastic and the quality of the work is top notch. They also have great workmanship warranties and source products with strong guarantees. To Seth and the team, thank you for all your hard work! We couldn't be happier with our choice.

  • We were very lucky in that we were the fourth household in our greater circle of friends to decide to get solar. By the time it came to us, three other families had already gotten solar through San Diego County Solar and all had glowing reviews, which saved us a lot of research and fretting about choosing the right provider. Seth was very helpful and friendly from the start, helping us determine our power needs both currently and planning for the future so we could get a system that best fit our house. Upon inspection, they worked with us to find the right place to put everything that worked for the system and for our own needs. Roy was very helpful in communicating timetables and coordinating scheduling with the roofing contractor. We had a last minute design change the required resubmitting our plans to the city for approval, but they whole team worked around it to make sure the install happened on time and Permission to Operate inspection was scheduled as soon as possible. Despite the work being done and them already having our money, Seth has even been helpful as we monitor the app and have questions about how it works and how to read all the data. As with the friends before us, we heartily recommend San Diego County Solar to anyone looking for solar in the greater county area (and already have; another set of friends is already in the planning stages with them!).

  • If you are looking to install Solar, San Diego County Solar (SDCS) deserves your consideration!
    There are so many companies out there pushing products and the choice of provider can be overwhelming. We had researched extensively and came down to three providers, one of which was SDCS. We were fortunate to see SDCS complete an installation at a nearby home and we spoke to the owners about their experience, which was really positive.
    Our first encounter was with Seth, their Director of Sales. Seth is very knowledgeable and took a lot of time to understand what mattered to us and what we were trying to achieve with the installation. There was no hard selling, just a professional and thorough quote process.
    Once we selected SDCS, Seth handed the project management over to Roy but remained actively involved in the project. Roy worked with SDG&E to get the necessary approvals and clearly communicated the progress and timing. Once onsite the install team Tim, Tim and Ian were efficient and courteous and completed the job in two days as promised. Within days we had the system up and running and are currently saving big time!
    If you are getting Solar in San Diego you won't be disappointed with SDCS, a local company, with competitive prices, professional employees and a quality installation.
