great experience

After being recommended by our son and several other close family we decided to meet with Dan Cooley. He was amazing at explaining the entire process with great detail. Very patient with answering all the questions we had and made sure everything was clear. We are very satisfied with our experience. Thank you Dan for being so helpful! Awesome job.

Happy Customer

The best decision I’ve made! Dan Cooley made is easy from day one! We went from paying Edison over $400.00 a month down to less than $4.00! Couldn’t be happier!

A great experience starting to go south.

My first five was a great experience. The company does excellent work. In addition, the sale process went smooth as can be. My Sales Rep was very knowledge. So, why do I rate the company a three and a little to refer the company to other. The way this system is setup for me, I am at the mercy of a company when it come to certain workpaper needing to be submitted to my utility company. Since November of 2019, I have got the run around when it come to completing that paper. For example, I was told it will happen in November, in December, and January. I expect SCE to put me in along queue, but not a company who got paid timely and in full. I wish it wasn't the company responsibility; however, it is. One of the selling point for this $12,000 item I purchased was that this paperwork would be done a month after installation. I am now going on my fourth month after installation. At this time, I am not 100% sure that I would refer a friend or colleague because this type of after sale experience.

Solar experience

I was lucky enough to meet Brandon Mezzanatto well he was doing a presentation at a friends house. After meeting many door to door solar sales people it refreshing to meet some who knew his stuff and was super honest. From the good, the bad, and indifferent he was straight up. He answered any questions we had and never once did he not take the time to answer a phone call from us even when it wasn’t really about his role. The process it self was pretty simple. Solar max took care of everything. So simple at times I wonder what I may need to do, Brandon always was there to insure me it was being handled. The installation team was courteous, clean, and did great work. They asked if there was anything I didn’t like or wanted to see different. Over it’s been a great experience. I received my permission to operate today from Edison just a few weeks after the work was completed. I haven’t seen my first bill to see the impact, but based on the info Brandon provided I’m sure it will be fine. Overall I highly recommended Brandon Mezzanatto at Solarmax.

Hi Robert, thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. Your feedback on Brandon is very much appreciated and we'll let him know how your experience was going solar with him and SolarMax.

Horrible experience

Horrible experience too much to list at this point solar has not been installed. They told loan pal installation was complete in order to get the loan funded, I thought buying a used car was as bad as it gets but I was wrong! Going to police station tomorrow because this is just fraudulent.

Sales presentation

We had presentations from several different solar companies. The reason we picked Solar Max was due to Terry Beams. We never felt rushed or pressured. He took the time to explain the entire system and installation process from start to finish and patiently answered all our questions. He knew of some recent changes at our electrical provider to help us pick the best system for our house. None of the other company presenters had done their homework and were aware of the changes. We will recommend Solar Max to all our friends.

A great solar company

We highly recommend Solar Max for your solar needs. All the staff were very professional starting with our energy consultant, Mario Garces, the support staff, and the whole crew of solar installers for our project. The Solar Max team were always quick in responding to our questions and keeping us informed throughout the project. Solar Max price was very reasonable and we are a completely satisfied customer.

Honesty is Key

My SolarMax experience has been smooth and easy. Amazing how quick SolarMax works. A big thumbs up to the crews who came and did the work on the house. Very courteous and no nonsense work ethic. From start to finish SolarMax was in touch and kept me updated. My consultation with Brandon conveyed to me that SolarMax is an honest company to do business with. Brandon explained everything simply and patiently. He is truly an asset to SolarMax’s prosperity. I highly recommend SolarMax for your solar energy.

Dennis, it is good to hear from you and thanks for the positive review of your experience with Brandon here at SolarMax.

Very professional sales presentation

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!

Truly professional installer

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.
