I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying having the solar panels. All I am paying to Duke Energy at the moment is the monthly connection fee, and that makes me so happy!
My wife and I decided to install solar panels on our house during the summer of 2014. NC Solar was well recommended and we contacted them and NC Solar installed 27 panels on the east-facing back roofs of our house. The NC Solar folks had us well prepared about the process and the installation went as planned and on schedule. They were very knowledgeable and good to work with. The engineers at NC Solar made calculations and estimated that we would be able to generate about 7.6 MWh in one year. We are two weeks short of one year and our panels have already generated 7.7 MWhs of energy. We have a fairly large home and have heat pump and air conditioning that is all electric. So we have considerable cold weather and hot weather use. But this summer our electric bills were so vastly reduced that in July Duke Power sent a technician to check the meter, (even though they knew we had solar panels having had to install the special meter.) The meter was fine. The panels cut our summer demand from Duke in June by over 75% from last year. In that month alone, our production exceeded 1MWh.
I was extremely pleased with my service with NC Solar Now. From the beginning of the process with the sales representative Patrick he was very knowledgeable during the discussion and diligent with his follow up. The installation went smoothly and was completed in a timely manner and has exceeding our expectations for solar production. I would highly recommend NC Solar Now in the future.
We're so happy with our decision to choose NC Solar Now to handle our solar installation. From the moment I contacted the office, the entire staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. NC Solar Now handled everything from start to finish (no paperwork for me!) and answered every question we had. The installation was amazingly quick (our neighbors were stunned!) and went off without a hitch. Luke, Logan, the rest of the crew, were all so kind, efficient, polite, and professional. They were all very considerate of the fact that I had two dogs in the house too. They left the property and my home exactly like they found, actually probably a bit cleaner. From the office staff, to the salespeople, to the installers—the entire company is the best there is. They informed us on the best solar system to get according to our needs and energy usage. We can monitor our usage online and after less than 10 days of solar use in our first bill, there was already significant savings! We can't wait to see the results for many years to come. We are so happy with our solar array and all the folks at NC Solar Now.
As a church, we have an abiding interest in caring for God's creation. As an Earth Care Congregation, we made a conscious decision to pursue solar in order to reduce our energy consumption and our carbon footprint. Our members came together in a special capital campaign, and together we raised the funds for our solar system. We solicited bids from three solar vendors. In the end, we chose NC Solar Now because their pricing was competitive and they were able to commit to an installation time frame that accommodated our needs. I'm thrilled to report that NC Solar Now not only met but in fact exceeded all of our expectations.
The entire process from contacting NC Solar through installation was a great experience. The person who came to visit us at the onset (Joseph) was knowledgeable and worked out a plan that suited our needs. We even discussed additional items and time frames that worked within our requirements. He was energetic and provided the information we needed within a short time frame. One of the main deciding factors in choosing NC Solar was the referrals. The other companies we talked to provided a few referrals up to three but NC Solar provided approximately 30. This told us that they were proud of their work and that customers were as well. The installation was fast and efficient. It was originally planned for three days but was completed in one day. The installation team was outstanding and were quick to put everything together and test. The team worked very hard through one of the hottest days around. Some even came back the following week to adjust something that I did not like. They were courteous and wonderful to work with. They are an asset to the company. The operation has been excellent so far. We are looking forward to seeing the benefits of having a PV system working and hope to enjoy it for years to come. The system so far is working at 100% of expectations and we are enjoying seeing the power from the power company reduction in the next bill we receive. This was an additional system to our home as we already had a solar thermal system that eliminates our gas expenses but this one should reduce or eliminate our electric expenses as well. We have been very pleased with NC Solar and expect to continue to use them for future additions to the system as well.
