What People are Saying About Solar Source
I was referred to Solar Source by a friend who lived around the block from me. I spoke to their salesman Bryan Hammond who has been working in the industry for several years. He was able to answer all 50 questions I had and gave me honest answers. The company also has a good resume of several projects they have worked on in the past. After looking up their background, the company has been around for several years so I knew they must be making customers happy. I have had the system for over a year now. I have not had one issue with the system nor have I have I had one complaint about their service. They do all the leg work taking care of permits and even help with the financing term matching you up with banks they work with. I will never go back to using the electric company again.
