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!!
I've had my Solarmax solar system with the SMX 300W solar panels that they make in CA for almost 2 years now. One of the reasons I chose them was the 25 and 30 year warranties and the quality of the system components. When I got the system they gave me a power production guarantee stating my system will produce what they say it will for 10 years. Well after my first full year (2018) I got my annual statement and my SMX panels and Enphase microinverters produced 26% more than expected. 26%!!! That explains why my wife can keep the AC at 72 and my pool pump diligently doing its job ALL YEAR LONG... in Riverside! And at the end of the year, Riverside Public Utilities gave me a $40 check for the extra energy I didnt use that they bought back from me over the year. This was exactly what my sales rep Dan told me would happen. I figured he was over promising. But this Solarmax power plant on my roof over delivered as promised. My wife keeps telling me that this is the best investment we've made in the house... well, beside the kitchen remodel :)
Pete was great all the way and always made sure to jump on and fix everything that could slow down our progress.
This company is all about being professional. From the gentleman that came out to my house (Dan) to the installers, to the office lady (Elizabeth), and the electricians. As a city inspector this company did a wonderful job on the installation and the customer service. (No and's if's or but's at all).. Thank you Solar Max.... I will recommend this company 100%......
Had a great experience working with SolarMax and got my solar system installed.
I was very skeptical in the beginning of our investigating of incorporating solar on to our home. There are many questions to be asked from someone like myself who knows little to nothing about the advantages or disadvantages of this new technology. However after working with Solarmax and particularly Chris Handzel I became a big fan. From the first time we met Chris after being referred to him, he answered almost all my questions before I even had to ask. He put both my wife and I at ease with this large investment showing all the returns we would see has homeowners. Chris was always available and continues to be whenever we have a question. He along with the Solarmax team really led us by hand throughout each stage until and after the complete install. We are so glad we were referred to Chris and Solarmax that is why it gives me pleasure to write a five star review. I would say with complete certainty that you will find the same high standards in quality and service as we have. Give Chris a call, you will be happy you did when you see your are not paying these ridiculous high electric bills any longer!
I'm so happy with the amount of money I'm saving every month, the whole process was super easy and low-pressure.
