Featured Reviews for Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
The Solar Broker
Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
""After meeting with several companies we realized we had to do something, but were not sure who to trust. We met Michael through a friend and he was able to tell us the pros and cons of each. Once we decided our best fit he was ultimately able to negotiate a better deal then the company offered. We recommend him to anyone considering solar for their home.""

Genesis California
Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
"My wife and I are so happy with our decision to go solar. Genesis helped the process with clear answers for all of our concerns. We didn’t have to look into many companies, when it came to who we were going to use. Genesis had the right price and service from the get go. The quality of the panels are second to none, they look amazing on our roof and add such a great conversation starter with all of our new neighbors. We went over our options of a lease or a purchase, and after lots of questions we decided to purchase. We financed and have had a great experience, including no pre-payment penalties. Our monthly bill is now less each month than our yearly average, which has made solar a better financial decision for us."

EcoForce Solutions
Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
"Ecoforce has helped us to dramatically reduce our energy use. We had 12-year-old AC units that just were not cooling our home effectively on hot days. Ecoforce tested our system and found that not only were the units performing poorly but they were oversized for our home and pretty inefficient. They were able to install a smaller and more cost-effective system. They also installed Nest thermostats to help optimize the comfort and efficiency of our home. They also replaced our pool pump with a variable speed pump that uses 85% less energy than the old one. (We had already changed over to almost 100% LED lights throughout our home.) Now that we’ve cut our energy use significantly, we’re working with Ecoforce to eliminate our energy bills entirely by installing solar."

Sun Pro Solar
Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
"Sun Pro Solar installed a 5.2 kw solar system on my home in October 2013. The installers were both friendly and very professional. The installation crew did an excellent job on the installation and even went the extra mile and painted all conduit installed on the exterior of my home as well as the interior with color matching paint (attention to detail). I have worked in the electrical industry for many years and would rate the installation work completed very highly. As a bonus the solar system produced more energy the first year than was projected. I would highly recommend Sun Pro Solar to family, friends and neighbors."

TEMECULA VALLEY SOLAR
Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
"Temecula valley solar was terrific in every way from our sales person Craig Sides to the solar panel installers ... This is probably the best investment we have ever made . We have been in our home for two years and have not once had an electric bill yet , in fact now that we are basically our own energy company Edison has had to give us a refund check twice , once per year . No one believes it but truthfully we have not given one cent to Edison from the beginning .. Our home is large and figure our bill on average would have been at least $ 400.00 per month maybe $ $500.00 or $ 600.00 hundred in the hot months .. We have two air conditioners and a big swimming pool and we don't scrimp on running the air or our appliances .my only regret is that we didn't install the solar sooner .. And temecula valley solar is the one I would call for sure ! Thanks again Craig !"

Sunlife Solar and Roofing
Solar Energy Contractors in San Marcos, CA
"I wanted solar for a long time and I'm happy that I made the decision with such a reputable company. I just had a new roof and solar system installed and all the installers were very nice, punctual, and cleaned up after themselves. They did a great job and I love the way my new roof and solar system looks. In fact my neighbors have already given me compliments. I was worried in the beginning of this process that something would go wrong, but now that my project has been completed I'm relieved that everything worked out the way I was told it would. The entire project was done professionally and Sunlife Solar did everything they said they would do. I have already recommended them to family, friends, and neighbors. This is a company that can be TRUSTED."

What types of residential solar power systems do solar energy contractors design and install?


Solar power systems are part of the growing energy efficiency trend. You may be wondering, what is solar energy, exactly? Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun, and is then converted into electricity and/or utilized for heating air or water.

The most common types of alternative energy systems for the home are solar electric, solar water heating and wind power systems. Solar professionals can help with everything from installing solar skylights to implementing complete solar energy systems.

Let’s say you want a solar electric system for your home. An off-grid system basically consists of solar panels and battery banks. These battery banks store the sun’s energy so you can use electricity at night or on a cloudy day. This system is designed to keep household electricity running for about two or three cloudy days; longer cloudy periods require a backup generator. To install an off-grid system, you’ll want to hire a certified California solar energy contractor. You can find more solar energy contractors in San Diego, Oceanside, Escondido, Vista and Carlsbad.

Along with off-grid solar, wind and hybrid energy systems that include batteries and backup generators, there are also grid-tied solar and wind operations. Grid-tied systems are attached to your San Marcos, CA utility company so if you produce more energy than you use, your meter goes down and you build up energy credits.

Installing solar skylights can save electricity. Sun tunnel skylights are tubular daylight devices that capture sunlight through domes on your roof. Attached to these domes are highly reflective tunnels that draw natural light down into closets, hallways and stairways.

Questions to ask potential solar energy contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
  • Do you have state certification?
  • Will you come to my home for a free onsite consultation?
  • Are you able to repair an older system?
  • Can you provide me with a layout to see where the panels will go and what they will look like?
  • Can you give me any information on California solar rebate programs?
