Tom's Testimonial

Let’s talk about something important, solar power. Thanks to Brad Price and Valley Solar, my SunPower panels are creating clean, renewable energy, at times, more than I can use. Now I don’t want to get technical, ‘cause I’m not technical, but, in my case, excess energy gets routed back to the SMUD grid so other customers can use it. They get charged for It, I get credit. Sometimes, I see my meter run backwards, and I’m thinking “awesome!”

You can dramatically reduce your electric bill from here on in. I did it with Valley Solar. Is it life changing? Hey, it’s a start!

Choosing Valley Solar for my home's solar system was the best decision I ever made. My electricity bill was $1.62 last month!

It has been over a year since we had you install our solar system. We couldn't be happier. Too bad our roof couldn't accommodate any more panels. I put together a chart of our usage from our bills. We had some help from the milder temperature this year. But overall, we were able to see our electric bill dropped in the peak months. We were able to refinance our mortgage this year thanks to the value added by having the PV system installed. The only change we would have made is to go with the online monitoring system. The Sunny Beam is nice but it doesn't provide the nice charts that we see from other systems on the SMA website. FYI, since we have installed our system in September of 2009, our rates have gone up in December of 2009 and again in July of 2010. Thank you again for installing our system.

Your very satisfied customer,

Jade and Luis P.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the excellent jobs you did installing both of the solar systems on my residence. The systems are working as I expected and I am very happy with both the economic and environmental benefits I am receiving. I had 2 different companies bid on the system that I wanted installed in February, 2009. The company I did not choose sent out a salesman that could not answer my questions on design, performance, and cost and was just a waste of my time. Then I called Brad. Well what a difference. He not only knows the solar industry like the back of his hand, but installs each job as if were on this own house and is proud of his work. I found this a refreshing change in today's business environment. I was so happy with the result of my 2.8KW system I just added another 1.8KB system that will now produce all the energy I use, except on those foggy winter days. I have referred Brad to one of my clients and again my client had nothing but praise for the work that was done.

I am a CPA and wanted to cut my monthly expenses as I get closer to retirement and with the reduced cost and Federal tax credit of 30%, I felt it was money well spent and a better return than what I was getting at the bank these days.

If you are considering solar energy you have found the right man with Brad. If you want to discuss my experience with me, Brad can provide you with my contact information.

Thank you for your extremely satisfying work with our PV installation! Your excellent service started from the initial visit, when you took the time to present a wide variety of information, answer our questions, and explain matters clearly.

You were responsive to our special concerns and desires. Also, you kept us informed about what we needed to do (trim trees) and provided the necessary charts, etc. to get the maximum performance from our PV panels.

Everything was handled professionally and neatly. Our system worked from the first day, even in November. Now that longer days are here, we are pleased to see the system meeting nearly all of our electricity needs. We have had no problems whatsoever!

Brad, I wanted to thank you so much for all you did in helping install my solar panel system. My situation was very unique and definitely required special handling.

I originally planned to have my general contractor who was building my house install the entire system for me. I first searched the internet and found the best deal I could on panels, inverter, and ground mount structure. My builder fell behind on the building plans and soon it became apparent that they would not be able to do my solar installation. I called numerous solar companies throughout the Sacramento area asking them if they would be willing to complete the task. Only one person and one company was willing to help me complete the task and that was Brad Price at Valley Solar.

He was willing to assist me and provide all the technical and specialized work I required. He was instrumental in the most critical phase including selecting the site and suggesting the mounting structure that would work best with my system. He generated the building permit and the process went smoothly with the electrical drawings and wiring size information he provided. In fact, within a couple of days after submitting the permit application, the permit to build was granted.

Brad was very flexible in enumerating what remained to be done to complete the task and allowing me to select which portions I could to keep costs low. I ran the conduit and snaked the wiring. Brad installed the mounting system, mounted the panels and then finished the wiring. When time came for final connections, Brad was there with his knowledge as to how things should be done and specialized tools to get the job done right. Final connection went smoothly and when the switch was thrown to test the installation, all was great.

Looking back, I could not have completed this task without Brad's help. There was a lot more complexity in the wiring and the mounting structure than I was aware. The final building went very quickly and I am now the proud owner of a safe, functional PV solar system and lower PG&E bills. I would strongly recommend Valley Solar to anyone considering a PV system for the house.

Thanks again for all the help.

Whether it is a lease program or a cash purchase Valley Solar will show you before and after projections of your energy bill and just how much money you will save. Valley Solar now has a “zero down” program that can start saving you money now with no cash out of your pocket.

This is an update to Jeff’s original testimonial, as he recently contacted Valley Solar to update us on his system production:

Eight years later and my solar system installed by Valley Solar is still maxing out the inverter that is supposed to max at 3500 watts. ZERO degradation from the solar panels is interesting. Hard to find good people like this.
 

Here is Jeff’s original testimonial:

I highly recommend Valley Solar for many reasons. Brad has been great to work with, he is not a salesman, just a great guy offering knowledge, great value, and results!

I had four solar system estimates for my home. He gave me the best price for the 4.2 DC watt system, used aluminum racking instead of galvanized rust prone material like other installers, panels with the best energy production tolerance, and it showed when completed because I have averaged 22kW per day even with some overcast weather.

I encourage anyone looking into solar to contact him, it's very nice to have all these good qualities all in one company.

Sincerely,
Jeff P.

I wished to install PV solar at my house. I had previously installed PV Solar at my old home and was very knowledgeable of what needed accomplishing. As an avid do-it-yourselfer, I always want to do a lot of the work myself, but knew from prior experience I would need some help, especially in the technical areas.

Brad Price at Valley Solar was the answer. He was willing to assist me and provide all the technical and specialized work I required. He was instrumental in the most critical phase, site selection as well as sizing the installation. With his assistance the necessary paperwork for the solar rebate reservation process was filed. He was great help in the selection of the mounting system and was able to purchase the majority of the supplies and equipment for me at very competitive prices. The building permit process went smoothly with the electrical drawings and wiring size information he provided.

I installed the mounting system, ran the wiring and then mounted the panels, consulting Brad frequently. When time came for final connections, Brad was there with his knowledge as to how things should be done and specialized tools to get the job done right. Final connection went smooth and when the switch was thrown to test the installation, all was great.

Looking back at the task, without Brad's help it would have been much more difficult. I probably could have completed it myself but it would have taken a lot more time, more trips to the building department, and surely more "do-overs". The final building inspection went very quickly and I am now the proud owner of a safe, function PV solar system and my PG&E bills should be history. Do it again with Brad's help, definitely; without, never.

Valley Solar did a great job designing and building a 4.7 kW ground-mounted system for me. With Valley Solar, you are dealing with a team that is extremely knowledgeable about PV design and building a system. As a customer, I found it was a huge advantage to work with a customer-focused, smaller-size company instead of the larger PV companies that have PV installations as one of many businesses. President and owner Brad Price's only business is PV and thus his only focus is designing and building the best system he can for each customer. His bid was as competitive as or better than the "big" companies. I highly recommend Valley solar for a PV installation and would use him again if I add additional panes in the future.
