We have been living in our home since it was built in 2000 and the thought of going solar never crossed our minds until about 2008. By then, our electrical bills had quadrupled while our usage stayed about the same. Upon deciding to go solar, we received quotes from two other local companies, and at that time they were all outrageously expensive. So, we waited. And waited…
And then in 2013 we discovered 1st Light Energy. I have to admit that at first I was a little skeptical with the 1st Light representative based on my earlier experiences with other solar providers, but she made everything very clear and we were pleasantly surprised by what she had to offer us.
Needless to say, we signed up with 1st Light and I have absolutely no regrets.
The process of getting up and running doesn’t happen overnight, but any time you’re dealing with city government and the local utilities, nothing goes quickly.
Although throughout the entire process, a 1st Light representative called us at least once a week to keep us constantly informed as to where we were at with the process (city permitting, city engineer, etc.) so there was no question as to what was going on. We knew that if we needed something, we could call Dominic and he would take care of us.
When the day came for the installation of our panels, the technicians arrived on time and it was obvious that they knew how to do their jobs. The quality of their workmanship was top notch. The technician that wired our electrical panel to the inverter kept the install very clean and well organized. None of our cement roof tiles were damaged during the install either, which was a big concern with me.
Ultimately, the city inspector passed our installation with flying colors.
It is because of our outstanding experience with this company that we have referred most of our family and friends to 1st Light Energy. If we had the opportunity to do this through a different company, we would most definitely stay with 1st Light Energy.
