    absolute worst service i have ever encountered. I have warped panels and they want to charge me to come look. they don’t stand behind anything obviously. all of their representatives have failed to even get a service visit scheduled. we have a 12.6kw system and I still pay 200 in power plus 300 in solar panel financing every month. we have not added new people or appliances….in fact we have done things to improve energy efficiency. panels are improperly braced and warping on my installation. they took a 5 min look at production data and claim all is fine. obviously its not fine or my production vs consumption would show that. THIS IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED FOR A 50K INVESTMENT. 4 MONTHS TO GET A SERVICE CALL IS UNACCEPTABLE IN ANY INDUSTRY. see pictures of visibly warped panel. ALSO THIS COMPANY HAS EMPLOYEES LEAVING REVIEWS TO BOOST THEIR GOOGLE RATINGS. THIS SHOULD SHOW YOU THEIR BUSINESS ETHICS. prime example is Andrew C. and Chris their CEO.

    Our Palmetto consultation was very informative. Rep Tony explained ALL of the pros and cons of going solar with my wife and I, and we wouldn’t have known a lot of that info (such as the difference between “25 Year Warranties” – they’re not all the same!) without him because the first two solar companies we met with just tried to get us to buy in 15-20 minutes! Tony was very thorough with us in explaining the tax credits and batteries and was honest about what would be the best situation for us (skipped the batteries for now). and the office maintained contact with us throughout each stage of the process until our system was running! I don’t like salespeople but Palmetto reps seems to care about what’s the best situation for people and not just making money. Very happy!

    Our system was just installed but it hasn’t been turned on yet (waiting for required inspection). Our rep was extremely thorough and answered all of our questions during the process, and they’ve kept us informed about the progression of things along the way (permits, etc.). The installers performed a very clean installation, and I can’t wait until the system is live! Also we really appreciate the guarantees – 25 years guaranteed power generation in particular is really cool, them paying our electric bill if there was any sort of shortfall shows their commitment and belief in their engineering and installation.

    We chose Palmetto Solar because of reviews of the panels they used and they were a local company.

    I just looked and saw some good reviews and I saw some bad ones. Most of the bad reviews were about how long things took and how slow they were. Well this is covid season and almost every company out is having major problems. Palmetto however told me what date they were going to install my service and that’s exactly what they and everything was done in a half of day. Now this is what people were getting upset about but Palmetto has no control of when your city assessor or whoever has to inspect the job and this took a long time but its to be expected its Government. The the power company gets involved and they have to do their inspection. Between those two inspection it was almost a month in a half. As soon as I was notified the inspections were done, I called Palmetto and within a half an hour they had walked me through and I was up and running, they even help put an graph on my computer and I can get to watch how this graph chart shows how much energy I am producing, its really cool.
