After sitting through 3 additional sales presentations from other solar companies, there was no doubt that Brandon Mezzanatto was the front runner. He was professional, thorough, knowledgeable and patient in explaining all the intricacies of solar. He is a great representative for your company! If you choose Solar Max, I highly recommend Brandon Mezzanatto for your consultation!
After spending about two months researching PV solar and getting estimates from seven solar installers, I chose SolarMax. Another company that was more local was my first choice but when I visited their facility, it was a real dump. I would not trust them to be in business until the end of the month much less long enough to honor a 25 year warranty. The SolarMax facility in Riverside is large, clean, modern and impressive. I believe they have about 200 employees, each a specialist in their specific duties. No subcontractors there. Surprising to me, in spite of having such a facility and specifying name brand, high efficiency equipment for my system, they were the most inexpensive based on cost per kW. The preparation for the installation took longer than I expected and there were some snags but each problem was ultimately dealt with to my satisfaction. In my experience with contractors, that is seldom the case. Also, Jacob Richardson, their salesperson, was available from start to beyond finish as were their Customer Service Dept. personnel. I was very picky and wanted some special features that would not be part of a standard installation, but they provided them all. The system is now installed and operating as expected. Between SolarMax and SolarEdge (the inverter and optimizer manufacturer) personnel, the system's operation and capabilities were thoroughly explained to me and the monitoring software was installed. There are a ton of PV solar installers out there but I doubt you could do better than SolarMax Technologies.
overall total experience was awesome. Terry was very knowledgeable kind and patient he explained everything very detailed and help me to understand how the solar panel system works. I would highly recommend a consultation from Terry Beams from Solar Max Technology before entering any other contract with any other solar company period!! yours truly Henry A. Rozuk
information on all different rate schedules system and financing what to expect and how system will change our life style was clearly stated.
I had a consultation with Terry today and he was amazing! Personable and knowledgeable about everything. made me feel like family!
We have had a great experience with SolarMax and we smile every time we look at a utility bill. They took care of all the details, installed the panels quickly, and followed up anytime we reached out to them. Chris Handzel is knowledgeable and a low pressure sales person. He let the facts speak for themselves. We cut about 90 percent off our utility bill. Soon we will actually have our upfront investment paid off. I could not be happier with this decision because I know we will save money over time AND we will make the earth cleaner. I charge my electric car in my garage and I like the idea of riding on sunshine.
Thought I would come back for updated review. I have had my panels for a few year and needless to say they are going strong, producing nicely and have had no issues with them. I am very pleased to have selected Solar Max for my installation. You will not regret going with this company for your solar needs. Happy client, thank you Solar Max
I was amazed at how fast Solar Max got the engineering and then permitting done. But what was most impressive was the ONE day install for what I thought was going to be a multi day project. The crew was not only on time, but it was a small army of technicians. In just over half a day they installed and tested 38 panels on a split level home. 3 locations on the roof and they generate more than enough for our use. I have watched neighbors have solar installed from other companies. NONE did it in one day. I watched 1 install take a week to complete with multiple visits. Solar Max is the way to go
EXCELLENT! Terry took the time and provided us with easy-to-understand information to help us determine which option to choose that will certainly result in our purchasing a SolarMax system. He is thoughtful, courteous and considerate. Thank you, SolarMax!!
We had a great experience with Solarmax! We had a 26 panel-7.8kWH system installed in December and we couldn't be happier. Mark Andrews was our salesman and he was great! I'm in the engineering field so I had a ton of questions, Mark answered every question by phone, email or txt easily within 5 mins. In fact, now that the system is installed, he is still answering my minor questions quickly. The panels and monitoring system is working great and will easily handle our electricity needs for our pool and 2 refrigerators. The installation crews were quick, efficient, professional and we have no leaks. So now that we're in summer, I've built up a credit with SCE and we don't worry about running the AC and Pool equipment all summer long!!
