Amergy Solar Reviews: What Customers are Saying

Do homeowners enjoy working with this Northeast solar installer?

Today, let’s take a look at Amergy Solar reviews from actual customer to see if their service is up to par and whether you should work with this Northeastern installer.

Amergy Solar is a solar installer based out of Metuchen, New Jersey, that works across the Northeast, including New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and California (admittedly not in the Northeast, but that’s what Amergy claims!) They install both residential and commercial systems, as well as government and non-profit projects.

Unlike some installers (most notably the national installer Sunrun), Amergy Solar does not use 3rd party sales or installation companies. Instead, they sell, design, and install all systems in-house. While this isn’t necessarily good or bad, it certainly simplifies the communication process during your project, as multiple companies aren’t involved.Continue reading

PetersenDean Solar Reviews Are Right in the Middle

What do customers say after working with PetersenDean Solar?

PetersenDean is a California-based solar installer working in several states across the US. But unlike other nationwide installers, they do things a little differently. With customer experience among big installers extremely spotty, does PetersenDean’s unique business translate to better customer service? Let’s look at PetersenDean Solar reviews from actual customers and compare their scores to other companies.

How exactly is PetersenDean different? First off, they’re not just a solar installer. They also install roofs, fences, and battery storage systems. Secondly, unlike SolarCity and Sunrun – who base their entire businesses around the solar lease – PetersenDean doesn’t even offer leases. Instead, they focus only on cash and loan financing.

For PetersenDean, this inevitably keeps things simpler, as they don’t have to worry about dealing with the increased costs and capital that offering leases typically requires.

Costco offers two very different options for homeowners wanting to install solar.

The solar kit is just that, a kit with a more DIY approach. Sunrun, though, is a solar installer/financier that takes you from start to finish with your installation. Let’s look into these offerings to see which one is right for you.Continue reading
