    Just had my panels installed today and the team was great.
    They installed my panels in one
    … More day and walked me through everything needed to know to operate the system.
    I’ll be waiting for an inspection of the work, but the installation day was a breeze.

    Solar Energy World just installed solar panels on my house and I couldn’t be any happier. This … More was the most exciting, fast and hassle free experience I have had on home improvement project. Frank and his crew were super nice, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful crew. I’m really pleased and can’t wait to get BGE out of my life!

    Everyone, from my solar analyst (salesperson) to HQ Scheduling to the installation crew did … More a superlative job. Lead installer was willing to listen to my explanations of how to overcome my house attic's particularly challenging routing to access the proper roof (under which the panels were installed), and how to cut across to the soffit in order to install a PhotoVoltaic cable run both much less conspicuous, as well as shorter and more elegant. Cost with the Solarize Virginia LEAP Alliance group price was around 2/3 that of another company's estimate (and I found out that other company had much worse customer reviews after the sale, too), so we are also very happy with our buy.
    Photos show that both the panels, as well as the electric cable conduit run, are very discreet.
