Have had my panels now up for about 2 weeks and want to commend how amazing this company is. From the original meeting to the installation and follow up, they are top notch. Genevieve our sales rep along with Trevor our project manager were amazing. We were originally set to go with Solar City and right before signing noticed how bad their ratings were so we reached out to Semper Solaris and I am so glad we did. They have a better product , cheaper price, and their customer service is on point. I highly recommend them to anyone as they are amazing!!

We had been looking at solar for the last couple years but were turned off by so many different sales tactics. We did research and knew that we wanted SunPower but weren”t sure which company to go through. Semper Solaris was not high pressure and their prices were great. Their Yelp reviews are phenomenal as well! The install was quick and painless and they stayed in touch with us every week, even if there was no new news. Great company! Great product and it”s owned by retired military. If you”re going to go solar, go with Semper Solaris!

We can say enough out Semper Solaris, SunPower, and our rep Genevieve Johnson! Our bill used to be $1000 per month! We just received our first bill after our solar was installed and it was only $23!!!!!! And we haven’t even have our system on for an entire month. The customer service has been excellent throughout the entire process. The guys who installed everything were very friendly and always cleaned up their mess before they left. Genevieve explained everything thing to us in full detail. They were cheaper then the 4 other quotes that we got. Thank you for the great job Semper!

I had at least 4 companies come by before I decided to go with Semper Solaris. If I could give this company 10 stars I would! Starting with my sales rep Steve M. He was very knowledgeable about Solar, his product and his company. He explained to us why SunPower makes the best panels with the best warranty. He answered all of my questions and helped us through the entire process from start to finish. The customer service representative Kristine, my project manager Jim, the installation crew managed by Greg, all the way to the veteran ownership John and Kelly, were AWESOME! I have recommended Semper Solaris to my closest friends and family and will continue to do so. Thank you Semper Solaris and Steve M for giving me the BEST product at the Best price!

I recently had Semper Solaris install a solar power system at my residence in the greater Santa Clarita area. From salesperson (Bob), manager J. (Joseph), office contact (Kristine) to installation supervisor (Julio), and his crew, I was totally pleased with the entire operation from start to finish. Communication was excellent and any questions I had were addressed in a timely manner and I was pleased to know that any concern I had was taken seriously and communicated up the Semper Solaris chain of command. Also from the start Semper Solaris listened to what my needs were and provided information and options on what I requested, (purchasing solar), and not what the other companies wanted to push which was obviously leasing solar. I have recommended Semper Solaris to friends and co-workers, and highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to deal with a professional, no nonsense, veteran owned company. Thank you Semper Solaris.

5 stars just isn’t enough! From the initial step of having a consultation, until the end of install, this company did not miss a thing!

Genevieve arrived promptly at our scheduled appointment and was very knowledgeable. She took the time to answer our questions and did so without any “”sales”” pressure at all. I can honestly say that every single employee in the process was nice and professional. They came through on every promise and made sure we knew everything that would happen before it happened.

It was so refreshing to work with a company that is truly the best at what they do. Such an easy experience from start to finish! We are so happy we went with Semper Solaris and would recommend them to anyone looking for solar or roofing!

Everyone at Semper Solaris was a pleasure to work with. This is my second time working with them, I had extra panel added to my existing panels. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. They have always been available to answer any questions that I have had and very quickly. I have had my current system for over 2 years and I have had no issues and only paid $60 to the energy company. I plan on getting an electric car and wanted additional panels to cover the cost of charging the car. I’m very satisfied with Semper Solaris company and everyone that I have come in contact with.

We spoke to at least 10 other solar companies before we got in touch with semper solaris, and we are so glad we did!!! Our rep, Genevieve Johnson, was the most knowledgeable person in solar space we found. She answered all our questions, was prompt in her replies, always available on text or call before, during and after the install, and most importantly got us a great price. No other solar company that sells sun-power solar panels was able to beat the deal we got. We highly recommend semper solaris and especially Genevieve to everyone who is looking to install solar panels in their household. Better yet, just give her a chance to meet you once and she will do her job to impress you like no one else can.

From the point of the sale to the final day of our project we were informed about any and all details. We were also asked more than a few times if there was anything we needed or would like to see done! We couldn’t believe the professionalism of the crew and the daily cleaning. We always knew what was going to happen the next day so we could plan accordingly. The attention to details and safety were obvious considering I am construction field myself. The workers were very polite to my wife and family. It was a great experience working with Semper Solaris and we recommend them to everyone.

This is our second experience with solar companies and installation. Everyone from Semper Solaris was above our expectation. From the company contact Kristine to the installers, things could not have gone better. Offered us discounts for being nurses which was greatly appreciated. Our panels were installed on a Monday and on Thursday we were running our system. Don’t hesitate to use this fine company. Simply the fact that they are local, veteran owned and employ our vets should make you take notice. Would not have done anything differently. Thank you for a great experience.

I have to say that these guys are first class. They have gone beyond what’s expected. Although I live in Lancaster, I have to say the job they did is top notch. The follow up with Jay and his crew is just commendable. The careful planning and precise placement of these panels are crucial to the maximum efficiency. I like the fact that they have crews that involves experts in their field such as Electrician, installer, roofer, etc. This makes sense to eliminate foul ups and mistakes. Their combine experiences makes them experts in this field. I can’t say enough about these guys. It’s what solar company is supposed to be. Big Kudos to this team.

I don’t leave reviews but in this case I will make an exception. They said what they did and they did what they said, plus extras I was not charged for. I was always kept abreast of the situation and the crew was the happiest bunch of employees you would want to meet. Nothing was ever a problem for them. Lastly I researched some 15 solar companies and found, not only did Semper Solaris use the best panels, they had the best price.

From the first contact with the salesman through the final inspection everything went as perfectly as I could have hoped.

We waited awhile to get solar. Looked around and chose Semper Solaris. Our initial contact was with Anela Havellana who ended up being our liason with everyone on the their team for our project. She and everyone we worked with were very helpful, very patient in answering questions(thank you Mark) and quick to return calls. We’re very happy with the product and the installation. Our electric panel had to be moved, all done really well. Even the rain gutter was taken down and reinstalled. Have no hesitation in recommending Semper Solaris to anyone.

Semper Solaris is an excellent choice for your solar installation. They use the best equipment and the panels are very low profile. The panels on our house are not even visible from the street. Because the panels are stronger than the competition, they needed less panels to achieve the same amount of energy than other companies.

The company is buttoned up as well. When their salesperson met me at the house, he was able to give me a quote in a few minutes, entering the data on his iPad and obtaining the price nearly immediately. Additionally, they offer discounts for veterans, asking me if I were a veteran, rather than me having to ask. All in all, it was a very painless presentation and contract approval process.

And lastly, they monitor your system, as long as you have a wi-fi connection. So, you don’t have to do the work and worry about checking the system all the time. If you want to, you can check your system any time, but you don’t have to.

I recommend them heartily. You won’t regret the decision to go with Semper Solaris.

In my lifetime I have dealt with a lot of various contractors. There is no doubt in my mind that Semper Solaris is far and away the best contractor I have ever worked with in my lifetime. From start to finish each of the various staff that I worked with on my solar installation were friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful at each phase of the process. The installation crew that installed the solar system were on time, friendly, and did a unbelievable job. I requested that they install all of the breaker boxes and monitoring equipment inside my garage. They told me that it would be no problem and proceeded with the install. The day of the final inspection Semper sends the install lead out to meet the city inspector to make sure there are problems with the inspection. I interviewed 7 solar contractors before I made my decision to go with Semper S. I am so glad that I picked these guys. They are light years ahead of the other solar companies. I would highly recommend using this company for your solar needs. I can promise you that you won’t be sorry.

We also placed great value on the fact that they are a veteran owned, American company using American products.

Just signed-up with Semper yesterday. Mark Ivory deserves a particular call-out as the guy’s Amazing. His presentation really had me sold. I really love the thought of being able to monitor each panel individually and know if there are any problems with any particular panel, in an instant. The company seems professional, and didn’t try and upsell or deviate from their quoted price. I am seriously considering having them install the EV outlet charger in the Garage, as well as their new battery backup technology at some point in the future. I feel that this is an honest company, with a Solid reputation. I can’t speak for the work, since it hasn’t started yet, but I have every reason to believe that it will be nothing less than the Stellar service they have provided thus far. I will be updating again as the Work progresses. Very pleased Customer!

I had wanted to install solar for quite awhile, but it never “penciled”. Finally the numbers worked for me, but who to choose? There certainly is no shortage of installers who want your business. I received the sales pitch from two big name installers and after much internal debate, I chose the micro-inverters from Semper.
That was the only time in the entire process that I wasn’t 100% sure of my decision.
After I agreed to do it EVERYTHING went beautifully. From customer service keeping me informed to the awesome installers of TEAM TANGO, everyone and every interaction was polite and professional.
I am quite fussy about how my home looks and I did not want my system visible from the street. Team Tango made it invisible! I have seen many installs and none look as good as mine. I am so happy!
Oh yes, as a “”side note,”” my electric meter is spinning backwards, love it!

This company is as good as reviewed. Bob King contacted me and designed and sold me our system. He was very professional and informative. very straightforward. The crew was highly experienced and the install was very efficient, even during the recent rain. they pulled the permits, got our HOA to approve it, and it all was done in a week. no issues. it works great, is generating a lot of power, and we are putting juice back into the grid. So many contractors are flaky, don’t show up, etc. The supervisor, Jim, kept in constant contact with me through the Utility Company approval. it was a great experience, and i highly recommend Semper Solaris

I called Semper Solaris and particularly Mark Ivory to discuss Solar with him. He came highly recommended, not only by people I know, but also by all the reviews you read about him online. Mark is thorough and knows his product. He answered all my questions and provided all I needed to make an informed decision. He was just out this past Saturday to check on the installation and to see if I had any questions. Everything was working fine and as it happened, I had just received my first bill for $16.62. Now this bill was not for a complete month of solar use so it covered electric too. I have 12 panels on a 1768 sq. ft. house and expect that my bill will be next to nothing going forward. If you are thinking of solar, support our military folks (this is owned and operated by former military personnel) and go with Semper Solaris and most definitely ask for Mark Ivory! Mention my name and tell him Linda N. sent you.

Oh, did I mention these panels are also American made? Another good reason to buy from Semper Solaris. Semper Solaris is the top national producer and dealer in the solar industry. See “”Retail Trends”” in the Sunday 3-19-17 edition of the San Diego Tribune.

Keep up the good work!!

Everyone from the electrician to the guys that installed the panels were friendly and professional. When all was done Anela even came back to see if I was happy and if I had any questions.

Semper Solaris came through on 2 major occasions. 1. I am an extremely happy customer with the solar Sun Power Panels they installed a year ago February. 2. With the recent heavy rains, I incurred water damage that was complex regarding the cause, but may have involved the roof area where no panels were installed. I reached out to Semper Solaris again saying “I really need your help.” Matt, Laura and Mike were telephone contacts that were responsive and ultimately spoke with the loyal to the customer business owner who gave the green light. Benny Mitchell was the amazing lead roofer who diagnosed and made recommendations. And ultimately Chris, Todd and Thomas came out and performed an amazing job. I mention the names because this is a company that not only delivers a very superior product and a very superior level of work, but have people that are devoted to caring about their customers.

I highly recommend Semper Solaris for your solar installation. Their customer service was outstanding. Laura, Daniel, and Mark were all extremely helpful from the beginning to the end. I wanted a company that used SunPower panels with the micro inverters and I am very happy with my decision to go with Semper Solaris. We had the system installed and the next went out of town for a month. I had heard that SDGE would take a few weeks to give the final OK to turn the system on. We got the OK the very next day and Mark called to give me the news. He knew we were out of town so he offered to send one of his guys over to turn it on for us. The only issue I had was a bad monitoring panel that they replaced quickly when we got back. Everything is now working perfectly. I can’t rate these guys highly enough! Go with Semper Solaris, you won’t be disappointed!!

This is the solar company to choose!
Semper Solaris is the most responsive company that I have ever done business with. We added solar on the addition we were putting on our home, so we had the opportunity to have all of the wiring hidden inside the structure. When I asked if Semper Solaris could do that, they said yes and had a crew at our home the very next morning. They installed all of the conduit out of sight, but left the wiring for later. When our contractor informed us that he was closing up the ceilings, again Semper Solaris came through with a crew the next morning to run the wiring. When I asked my salesman for an invoice for my tax returns, he had accouting send it to me in less than five minutes. They were true professionals throughout the process. I compared with Peterson Dean and SolarMax. Semper Solaris was ultimately the best value and our sales person, Steve Magdesyan, was on top of the installation from start to finish. Peterson Dean’s salesperson provided no follow-up until weeks later even though we asked for a roofing quote along with the solar quote. The SolarMax salesperson was such an a-hole that I had to tell him that based on his attitude alone, I would not do business with his company. I want to give special thanks to Steve Magdesyan, Jim Jereczek, the project manager, and Uyen Tran in accounting. They made the whole process easier than any project I had ever done before.

I was thinking about going solar for over 5 years. I realized now was the correct time to invest since solar technology has improved and the tax incentives that assist with purchasing a system are declining. I interviewed 4 different companies where the price comparison between quotes can be confusing. I selected Semper Solaris because of the quality Sunpower panels and micro inverters Semper Solaris provides (most efficient panel on market) and the 25-year warranty for both the panels and inverters. Semper Solaris was higher in price than some of the other quotes however they offered higher quality products. I also had Semper Solaris install another layer of shingles on the roof prior to installing the panel. Bob King, the project lead for my effort, was very knowledgeable about the product, answered all questions, and was an overall good communicator during the whole process. Semper Solaris did a great job installing and clean-up of both the reshingle and the solar panels (tested during the heavy So CA rain, no leaks!).

The biggest frustration of the process was waiting for LADWP (3 months) to grant the approval to operate (no fault of Semper Solaris). I’m looking forward to receiving my low utility bill especially in the summer when we need to occasionally use the A/C. I highly recommend Semper Solaris!!

This is the most amazing solar company I have ever delt with. Let me start by saying i’m the most meticulous / OCD person in the world. I have delt with the owner, Kelly who has personally talked and emailed me. Robert Bessler, the Operations Director is a fast communicator, Laura, an awesome project manager, and the installation team who did a subperb job. I am very very meticulous and they labeled me a VIP (thanks Kelly) because I am a nice guy 😉 and they gave me VIP service. They basically did my entire install explaining what they were doing and if it was okay. In the beginning they drafted a plan and one of the installers gave me a suggestion to put all 15 panels on one roof which they could fit all of them. My roof looks so custom its amazing. All the 15 360 watt Sunpower X22 tiles fit the entire roof. Trust me I am meticulous I even met with the plans designer at their headquarters! But this is why they are there for you, and want you happy! When I had particular questions, comments, and issues, the staff were quick to figure it out and change something for my needs. The installation looks stellar and they even matched the conduit paint to the wall and roof. How come the other solar companies leave their conduit a medal color and don’t paint them? Why did this team drive to the paint store and match the color at Home Depot? Because Semper Solaris is #1! And after the job, it was not “”see you later buddy””, the installation manager, Josh came by and talked to me and shock my hand and wanted to know what questions I had or concerns. He spent time talking to me. That is classy! What else is classy the installers didn’t just show up and say “”show me the money””. They softly introduced themselves and the project started. I was like when are you taking my check? lol. Yes, I did pay! lol 🙂 What was also amazing they quietly asked permission to use the bathroom. They didn’t just “”walk to the bathroom”” which they could have, but they were so polite. I might have drove them nuts (sorry management) but I followed them around for 2 days like a puppy. That’s just how I am but I want to learn how solar works. I watched them work in the attic and on the roof. I was even helping them a little bit, but don’t worry I was not putting on panels. But I was with them the entire time during the two day process. But you can get lost in my attic so I had to watch and help. lol. So the process was finally done and I’m waiting for the city to approve the plans which obviously should pass. Its the cleanest install in the neighborhood. They took their time and they used good safety practices, especially when they were using the electrical panel, and the way they were careful and grounded the wires first. When I was standing close to the panel the electrician said, “”Be careful don’t touch anything.”” That’s the one time I didn’t get too close. 😉 lol On the roof there was so many minor minor things like the rail stuck out a tiny bit and they quickly fixed it to make it better! Note, that of 10,000 customers I would probably say I’m the only person who would notice something like that. That’s how meticulous/ OCD I am. Who cares about silly stuff on my roof but its my house forever. I can talk about this place until I’m “”blue in the face”” but my review speaks for itself. And yes, this is my longest review. I’m going to take advantage of this companies incentive for referring others. Even if I received a big check for referring others, I would not refer anyone if I was not happy with the result. Thanks to everyone for everything. I got the “”A team”” this time and I’m blessed for this. The crew of Edgar, Rico, Eddie, and Jake are 4 quality employees which I would let them upgrade my house again. But I am sure every crew is the “”A team”” because like Josh said, they will not just hire new people to the job, they want performance and experience. It really shows and when you see these photos it speaks for itself. Thanks Robert for revising the plans with me 353 times, even though I changed it again when they came out! Now that is 5 star service. Thanks again team and thanks again Kelly for the discount! 🙂 PS check this out! One of the installers who was at my house, Jake, saw an accident last year and saved lives on a highway by pulling people out of a burning vehicle after an install: Source: youtube.com/watch?v=-i-c…. They received a special commendation from the majors office which is very rare to obtain. The owner is a former marine and they obviously used that marine approach, which was totally done by Jake and his co-workers. By the time you read this part of the review, you will realize how obsessed, dedicated, and meticulous I am with top notch service. PPS: I researched 64 companies before I hired Semper Solaris, yes 64! After I narrowed down the best panel in the world (Sunpower X22 360 Watt with best efficiency), I narrowed it down to two companies. As a result, I was proud to pick the right one.

Semper Solaris is based out of San Diego and recently expanded to Kern County. I had very specific requirements after I got the okay from my wife to proceed with solar. Aesthetics was a big priortiy. We only wanted the panels to be on one side of our roof, specifically the west side because we live on a NW corner house. That way you would only see the solar panels if you’re driving down the street from the west side which we rarely do. This one requirement basically eliminated all the solar companies I consulted with that did NOT use Sunpower panels. Those other companies wanted to put panels on 2-3 faces of my roof or garage. We do have a large home and I was shooting for basically 100% energy production based on our PG&E bill for 2016. Our west facing roof also had vents that would needed to be rerouted. Some companies wouldn’t do that.We also have a two story house.  I wound up going with Sunpower 360kw panels which is their most efficient one. I basically narrowed it down to Semper Solaris and two other local companies. One company had a significantly higher price quote and the other had communication issues. Semper had great reviews in San Diego and their pricing was good. Installation went smoothly and quickly. They communicated with me after the job was done to make sure I didn’t have any questions and that I was happy. The only thing I was a little confused with was when the installers came, their vehicles were of a different solar company that I hadn’t heard of. After speaking with the project supervisor, he said their company subcontracts with various other solar companies. That’s all they do is installations, they don’t generate their own sales. I was a little apprehensive at first but they did a wonderful job. They even reset a few tiles on my garage that they noticed had slipped. We have tile roofs and they did state that they would replace any tiles that broke during the installation. They did break a few but I happened to have some spares so it was no big deal to me. Overall, I was pleased with the whole process.

We recently purchased a solar system from Semper Solaris. I initially met with their salesman Mark Albano on July 28. He gave an excellent presentation on the product for our consideration and quickly provided us with a proposal which we approved on August 2nd. Mark gave us excellent support throughout the process. He was always available to answer questions and troubleshoot and iron out issues. He even came out and personally removed a tree stump that was in the way. The process took longer than expected due to some design issues/changes and approvals by the county. The system was initially supposed to be a roof mount but it turned out there was insufficient roof space so a ground mount was required. After the county rejected the first ground mount location we finally figured out a design and location that would work and got approvals and construction began in early December which included a significant upgrade to our electrical panel. Emilio and his crew did an excellent job of installing the system and worked some long hours to meet their timeline. Trevor Decker, the Project Manager, did a great job keeping me informed regarding the upcoming phases of the project along with the scheduling, with support from Laura Vargas. We received permission to operate the system on December 29. The system turned out great. It looks good, is installed properly (it has held up to some significant wind storms), and above all is generating lots of electricity. We especially like the Sun Power program that lets us monitor our production and usage. We are pleased that we chose Semper Solaris, a great outfit all around.

I called many Solar Companies and finally settled on Semper solaris. Primary reasons are good Panels(Sun power) and their sales Rep(mike). I bought the solar panels from them(Not a lease). It was a clean and honest discussion and he provided me all the details correctly and a very good price as well. Their installation team completed the job very professionally and explained me about the monitoring process. I had to get the HOA approval for the solar installation and Sempis provided me with professional documentations which helped me to get the approvals without any follow up question. It has been two months since I have the panels on my roof. So far everything looks good. The process of getting approvals from the city and utility company took more time than I anticipated but Sempis took care of that process end to end. The project manager and their customer service team did all the necessary follow ups and kept me informed throughout the process.

We have nothing but great things to say about using Semper Solaris! Dustin Wilson provided us with all the information we asked for before deciding on Semper, and also helped us to design the solar system that met all of our needs. He responded very quickly to our questions and gave us the feeling that we were a priority. The system is very efficient and affordable (got us out of the higher kilowatt tiers), and was installed professionally in less than 1 day. We were very concerned that the system be as obscure as possible from the street, and were very happy with the outcome.

Thanks to Semper Solaris and your fine team of professionals!!! We can’t imagine that anyone would regret choosing your company!!

So I originally signed up with another Solar Company and after many broken promises and missed commitment dates, I cancelled and started my search again. One thing I learned when talking to the many solar companies was that many of the sales reps were like used car salesman. They will tell you whatever you want or they think you want to hear. ……so ultimately I was referred to Semper Solaris after talking to two current customers that raved about them. My sales rep Hayden Nix was beyond professional showed at my house and showed me how Semper does business with the best panels out there. Was able to get my 0 down financing done is 3 simple steps!! From this point on Semper contacted me via email and phone to keep me updated through the design-permit and install phases! Kimberly Saavedra always kept me in the know and returned emails with in minutes!! I was completely impressed with the customer service! The install guys showed up on time were very professional kept me up to date with what they were doing that day! They were very respectful of my property and neighbors and never left a mess! My job which was a total of 18 panels was installed in about 2 and a half days!! ….so now I just need to wait for final inspection and SCE to do their thing and I will be catching my own energy! Thank you Semper Solaris …from one vet to another…thank you!!

Even though their main address is in San Diego, we hired Semper Solaris to install our panels in Thousand Oaks. They have workers all over So. Cal. available to work in our area. I interviewed several solar companies but after meeting with them and comparing their offers with what John McIntyre at Semper presented, it was a no brainer.

We have a ground installation rather than a roof installation and the crew at Semper was fantastic when it came to auguring the holes for the posts, erecting the frame and installing the panels, cables and boxes. They were always prompt and called if they were going to be delayed or late. When they finished, the clean up was amazing and they patched the minor holes in the stucco and painted so I could not even tell there had been a hole

The office was excellent at calling to let us know the next phase in the job and when inspectors would be arriving and letting us know whether or not we needed to be home.

Finally, within 1 week of the final inspection and submission to SCE, we were approved by SCE and were able to “flip the switch”!

I highly recommend Semper Solaris to anyone thinking about installing solar. There is definitely a reason why their ratings are so high.

I received 5 bids from various solar companies operating in San Diego. I selected Semper for the high quality panels and service. Mike Barnett did a great job submitting a competitive bid and provided excellent service. I have done 2 projects with the Sempra team; their installs Darren and Daniel went to extra steps to ensure I was satisfied with installation, very professional and courteous. Mark the PM always returned my calls and emails, very prompt to ensure customer satisfaction. The Semper administrative team was very helpful through out my 2 projects.

Both of my projects went very smooth and now I am in the green every month! I would highly recommend the Semper Solaris team for your next solar project.

This company is as good as reviewed. Bob King contacted me and designed and sold me our system. He was very professional and informative. very straightforward. The crew was highly experienced and the install was very efficient, even during the recent rain. they pulled the permits, got our HOA to approve it, and it all was done in a week. no issues. it works great, is generating a lot of power, and we are putting juice back into the grid. So many contractors are flaky, don’t show up, etc. The supervisor, Jim, kept in constant contact with me through the Utility Company approval. it was a great experience, and i highly recommend Semper Solaris

My solar installation went without a hitch from start to finish – no hidden costs and the project was completed well within the projected timeline. Dustin was my first contact with the company and I was very impressed by his honesty, knowledge, helpfulness, and straightforwardness. Mark was the project manager and he continuously followed up to ensure the job went well and was meeting my expectations. When I experienced a small problem related to a particular circuit breaker that wouldn”t reset, Mark immediately dispatched a worker to resolve it that very same day. I have worked with several contractors over the years for projects at my home and my small business so I can appreciate the differences in the levels of customer service provided by various contractors. On a scale of 1 to 10, Semper Solaris has earned a solid 10 in my book. Their attention to detail, the quality of their work, and their timely follow-up to any questions or concerns I had was simply outstanding.

I decided to go with Semper Solaris after talking to 6 different solar companies. Price wise, they were competitive but not the least expensive but what service! The permit process went smoothly. Steve, the sales representative, answered all my questions. Tracey Pollard, from the Administration Office, worked on my rebate from the City. She was on top of all the documentation requests. Greg, the manager in charge of the installation, knew exactly what the city”s required to pass inspection. They did the installation in a day and even painted the conduits to match the color of the walls. After the installation, I requested that they install software so I could compare usage to power generated. They responded almost immediately to my request. This is a company that really cares about its customers. If only all the contractors I dealt with were this responsible. Very highly recommended.

From working with my sales person Suzi, to project manager Mark, to the crew that installed my solar system (Andy, Aaron and crew), the entire project went more smoothly than I thought possible. From the day signing the contract to the day SDGE let me flip the switch, all aspects went according to plan (and even one small glitch on the the contact wire of the monitoring system was addressed by them even before I knew about it.) And all done, including financing, in under 30 days! To top it all off, my Sunpower 360 panels are producing like they should – even on this day in January with a low and short sun cycle – my system produced 174% of energy used. Customer service, the guys who monitor your system, and everyone else have been responsive whenever I had a question. There are a lot of solar companies to choose from out there, but I’m quite happy I chose Semper Solaris.

This is the best contractor I ever used. If only all contractors were all like Semper Solaris. I chose them after talking to 6 different solar companies. They were not the least expensive but they seemed to know what they were talking about. I also like the support they give to our veterans. Steve, the sales representative, made some very good recommendations and answered all my questions. Tracey Pollard, from the Administration office, made the permit process very smooth. She was also on top of my process to claim my rebate from the City. I received emails from her answering questions posed by the City at the same time that I received the questions from the City. Greg, the manager in charge of the installation, knew all the requirements of the City to pass inspection. He even installed carbon monoxide detectors in my house! The installation took one day. They painted the conduits to match the walls and cleaned up after themselves like they were never there. After the installation, I asked for software to monitor usage versus production. They took sent someone out the same week. This company really cares about its customers. They made the process easy. I can’t recommend them enough.

Semper Solaris has performed admirably. The time span between my first contact and system activation was 6 weeks. Peter was enjoyable to talk to and very informative. He made the process painless and understandable. My system was activated 3 months ago. I have been pleased with the production of power my system generates. My SDGE electrical bill for December 2016 was incredibly only $11!! The same billing period last year was $213. I introduced Semper Solaris to some of my friends and they too are happy with their savings.

We had great service from Semper Solaris, from the on-site estimate to the project management, everything went really well. Our rep, Robert Cassidy, was easily reachable for any questions we had, and made sure we understood everything that was happening. Our installation took only a day or so; they sent a big team of guys to get it done since rain was threatening. And Will, our foreman, made sure he was there when the city inspector came, so that he would be able to answer any questions that came up. Everything passed with the city and PG&E. Everything took about 8 weeks total, from our signing the agreement to getting hooked up with PG&E. We had a couple of delays between the installation and permission to operate, because we were set up with SmartRate through PG&E and we didn”t realize that had to be discontinued. But it all worked out and we were very pleased with everything overall.

I wish I could give them 10 stars! Semper Solaris is a truly remarkable local company. They are efficient, communicative and detail oriented. I found this company one day when I saw one of their trucks in my neighborhood. I contacted them, they gave me very detailed information, the salesperson came out for a site visit, and gave us a quote. They are slightly more expensive than other companies I inquired about, but I could just tell that other solar companies are completely disorganized compared to Semper Solaris. I also believe that Semper Solaris offers a higher quality panel system than the other companies with lower price quote. What really impressed me was the co-ordination of employees, the professionalism and their timely responses. I also love the fact that they are a local company. It is so hard to find a company today with such high quality of work and professionalism. I feel my money is well spent, and I will highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking into installing solar system.

SenperSolaris installed a solar system at my home in December 2016. The whole process went very smoothly and was done ahead of schedule. The installers were very efficient and kept the house clean at all times. The wiring was done very professionally, but that was all I could see. The rest was inspected by Carlsbad inspectors and did not require any changes that I was aware of. SimperSolaris sales person was Mark Albano phone number (619-495-1587). He was very helpful throughout the process. In addition a Project Manager was assigned who was in contact with me throughout the entire process. This was extremely helpful since this type of project is new to most homeowners and a lot of people are involved i.e. HOA, city inspectors, SDGE, roof installers. I can definitely recommend SemperSolaris for a Solar project.

We looked at lot of different products in the market and ultimately decided on Semper Solaris for a number of reasons.

1. Their technology is far superior to anything that we reviewed and researched.
2. Their representation, knowledge and sales experience was second to none. Historically I am not a huge fan of sales people but the guy we worked with (Mark Ivory) was awesome. Mark was very knowledgable, authentic and did what he said we was going to do, with impeccable follow up!
3. The process was seamless. The team they put around us, including Mark Ivory, the project management team, the installers and the folks in the office held our hand and were always at our beckon call, and more importantly they had great notes on our account and were all on the same page.
4. They helped us get better financing than our bank and they held our hand all along the way to make sure that process was seamless as well.
5. They support our veterans!

We have been up and running for about 4 weeks and the total time I had to invest in this process from start to finish was less than 2 hours. I can log into my dashboard online and see what my system is producing and how that is positively impacting the environment and our bank account.

I write very few reviews but after Mark Ivory personally stopped back by this morning just to check in and see if I had any questions or could use any of his help, I felt compelled to give them this glowing review and tell the world how amazing my experience was with this company, their team and their network.

By the way, the low profile system is barely noticeable from our street and even our neighbors commented how they didn’t even notice we had the solar installed.

I spoke with 3 other companies before I called Semper Solaris. Was not impressed with the first two, and the third was somewhat vague in their presentation.
After calling Semper Solaris, I met with their sales rep, Bob king. He obviously had a wealth of experience and knowledge. He answered all my questions and concerns. He LISTENED to me, and layed out a system that exceeded my expectations.
After signing with them, I found that he was not the exception, but that the entire company was honest, quick to respond, and follow through. Their actions equalled their words. The entire job was completed in two days. Two consecutive days, not one day with a two week delay before the second. It passed inspection on the first try. They cleaned the jobsite meticulously. I cannot be more pleased.
I HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone who wants to be surprised by the level of quality you can still find in a construction company.

To some, the following is a bonus. To me it is a small way I can give back to a group who has risk their lives for this country. Being a Vet owned and run business means this team has first protected my freedom and now is protecting my home investment with Solar.

They were courteous, timely, and got the job done. Thanks to Semper Solaris, I really hope these solar panels help get PG&E rates down to a bare minimum. Tbd I’ll be back to report more later. Team Foxtrot, you guys rock!

Semper Solaris is a Great Company. They are very timely and knowledgeable in the install process and very professional. Rob is who we worked with to start the whole process and he explained everything about the product and how it works and made great recommendations. My husband and I are very pleased with Semper Solaris and would highly recommend them over the other solar companies. Thanks for everything and continuing to follow up with us to see how everything is going. We are saving so much. It is a great product. Anyone reading this post I would highly recommend you give them a call and tell them Eddie and Terri Gomez recommended you.

Mark Ivory was my service rep and did a superb job. He detailed all the costs, gave me the pros and cons of the installation and provided a competitive bid. Semper uses top of the line material and excellent installers. The installation started and ended on the advertised dates, with the SDGE inspection coming less than a week after install. Overall superb service and equipment with no negative surprises. To date, no problems and I enjoy the low to nonexistent electric bills. I would highly recommend.

When my wife and I finally decided to install a solar power system for our house we interviewed six different solar installation companies and chose Semper Solaris. From the first time we met with Mark in the sales department, to the final contact with Mark in the installation department, we have been extremely surprised with the high level of professionalism from this company and its employees. Every single employee we had contact with went out of their way to give us outstanding service. Semper Solaris gave us customer service beyond my expectations. One example was the fact they painted the steel electrical conduit to match our house! Didn’t expect that. Another example was the replacement of broken clay roof tiles they had noticed while doing the install. These tiles weren’t near the area they were working, but replaced them anyway. Didn’t expect that. So, this five star rating was definitely earned by Semper Solaris. I highly recommend them.

Semper provided me with one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with a vendor, contractor or service provider. We interviewed four other solar contractors and their’s was the most comprehensive, detailed, thorough and professional covering not only installation and operation but also dealing with PG&E during the process.

The pitch was clear and detailed (our sales rep was Rob), installation was timely, professional and frictionless and the Sun Power panels they installed have worked like a charm from day-one.

At one point during our discussions I asked Rob about adding an additional two panels to our order and he was reluctant to do it. Yes, a sales representative hesitated to sell us a larger order. The reason, he explained, was that their policy was to right-size an installation for a customer’s power use based upon their most recent year’s PG&E bill. Putting up more panels would just send more power to PG&E that the customer would not be paid for while increasing the cost of the installation and pushing back the ROI. We explained that we were considering swapping out the gas water heater and furnace with electric when those units failed and down the road our next car might be a plug-in. Understanding that he was happy to put two more panels in our order.

Highly ethical behavior from Rob and this company and I can’t recommend them enough.

We had gotten a quote from another company first who never followed up with us. Customer service is really important to us, and we really loved the customer service Semper Solaris provided from start to finish. They answer all your questions, give you many options on buying solar and don”t make you feel pressure into purchasing any solar. The installers were really great too. They communicated on when they would be there or when they wouldn”t, and what parts of the house they would need access to. I felt comfortable with them at my house and being around my things. We had a great experience with Semper Solaris and would recommend them to anyone!

My purchase and install of residential solar from Semper Solaris was flawless. From the initial sales call with Mark A. to the pre-install site survey to the actual install, I could not have asked for a better process. Initial sales call was in November 2015 and install was complete in December 2015 with approval from SDGE to turn solar on the first week of January 2016.

Every part of the process went smooth without any type of glitches. This includes the initial consultation, installation, activation process of the solar panels and they also cleaned up after the installation as well which is, A PLUS. Every representative of Semper Solaris that I came in contact with throughout this process were professional, attentive to every questions that I had and continued to follow-up with me to insure everything was going smooth. I’ve done several projects at my home in the past, but Semper Solaris are in a class by themselves. If your interested in installing solar panels, I highly recommend Semper Solaris.

Semper Solaris delivered on their promise: Mark Ivory is a very knowledgeable and responsive sales person, he took the time to offer an even better option (confirmed by my research): Sunpower panels with integrated micro-inverters. Definitely the way to go in the future. Installation was a breeze (less than 2 days for 23 panels and 7.7 kW installed power). Only downside: because this product was so new, the online dashboard did not work properly until after the after-sales personnel came out 4 times. Now they probably know better how to install the monitoring system correctly for that type of set-up. Go with Sunpower, go with micro-inverters, go with Semper Solaris, you will be satisfied (they did not pay me to say that)! Also, they DO have a very competitive pricing structure and a $500 referral reward!

Installed Sunpower panels with integrated micro-inverters. Sales staff was very professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. Installation was fast and efficient (less than two days for 23 panels). To make the online dashboard work required 4 visits from after sales, but that was due to the fact that we were one of the first ones to install micro -inverters. Got resolved after two months but no impact on solar generation in the meantime. Strongly recommends micro-inverters though! TY Semper Solaris!

After extensive research, we chose Semper Solaris as our solar provider because of the many professional endorsements and positive customer reviews that we read. We are very happy that we made this decision, as Semper Solaris was great to work with, the people were very helpful and friendly, and the work they did was timely and perfect in every way. The Sun Power panels we bought were the very best available anywhere, and Semper Solaris, at the time, was SunPowers largest customer. Their after-sale support is excellent. They are totally focused on on being the best, serving their customers and making sure they are happy. We are very, very satisfied with Semper Solaris and have recommended them to our friends and neighbors.

I had to go thru many companies {including the big ones} before I found Semper Solar.

Quite frankly I was getting annoyed. Finally this company took the time to explain what was going on at every level.. We fought PG&E {which takes time to get there permission, yes permission to install} got permits and plans. They use only the newest units not old ones that are considered new because they have never been installed.

My unit was up and running in just weeks. I have never had any problems with this unit or the company with all promised follow ups.

Still waiting for my true-up {once a year} to see the final outcome, but I don”t think I will owe them any electric bill and I have been paying my gas bill each month.

These people from salesman, installers and service have been nothing but a pleasure to deal with.

I hope you will find the same result.

This review is long overdue. We had our panels up and running since February 2016. We have interviewed at least 10 companies prior. By the middle of it, we knew we wanted Sunpower panels for their quality & warranty, so we spoke with other companies who exclusively installed Sunpower. We chose Semper because we had read from other customers about its company integrity and upon meeting with Bob, our rep, we were settled with the company. Semper was very competitive in its pricing, but most of all, we got more than what we paid for. They were trustworthy, hard working and expeditious in every aspect. They addressed every concern and never for a moment, we felt we impinged on their time. They were happy to help us from the installation to the approval from the city & Edison, which says a lot about their professionalism & expertise. Bob assured us from the beginning that it wouldn’t be an issue to have the panels approved, while a few other companies had been hesitant. He had delivered on his promise. We were also happy with our correspondence with the technical manager, Anthony, who kept the schedule on time and addressed all technical concerns. We had spoken to 10 companies, so we learned so much in the end. Solar panels are a huge long term investment, so you want a trustworthy, reliable company to install the best panels in the market. Even though Semper is based in San Diego and we are in Orange County, we felt no difference in the distance. They were fast and efficient, as if they were located right down the street. You cannot go wrong with Semper and it happened to be a veteran-owned company, which is an added bonus. Integrity and trustworthiness are important, and this company exudes that.

I have had my solar electric installed for 13 months now. Couldnt be happier with Solar. Although I gave it a 5 star rating, it was not without incedent. However, Semper Solaris cusotemr serive is excellent and they took care of everything very quickly. Our sales man, Mark Ivory, was excelleent and was not pushy. I came to him when I was ready to buy and he did the rest. Sum Power panels are the best and they are producing even more than what the salesman told us (but he did tell us that might be the case).

I had my system installed many years ago by another company. I wanted my system checked out to ensure it was operating correctly. Semper arrived promptly at the appointment time. The system was checked out and thankfully everything was working fine. The technician explained what he did as far as checking out the system and fixing some connections/wire that had moved as a result of broken zip ties. I appreciated the explanation provided and as a result, I will be calling Semper back in the event I have problems with my system in the future.

I talked to seven different solar companies and because of the warranty and track record of SUN POWER panels, SUN POWER was the only company whose product I was interested in. So then only the SUN POWER dealers were being considered. Semper Solaris quote was not only under the other SUN POWER dealers, but also beat the companies offering cheap imported panels. Its not often that you are able to get the hands down best product on the market for less than the cheap knock offs. From first sales contact to completed install and all the steps in between, every person i dealt with was extremely polite and professional, and on time to boot. Bill is the lowest pressure sales guy there is, and a straight shooter.

They Recomended and installed the perfect Sun Power system about a year ago. I use my A/C non-stop and I will never get a big bill again. With the tax credit and the great financing offered through Semper Solaris there is no need to lease and you add value day one owning your system. The power company took longer to turn it on than Semper Solaris did to design and install it. I highly recommend solar and Semper Solaris to all.

It took me a year to research, compare and then make up my mind on which of many solar providers to choose. Semper Solaris was patient throughout and when I requested install they then quickly executed and I was up and running within 10 days. I monitor my “SunPower” panels on my smartphone and I produce more energy than I used daily. I also received monthly reports. I am THRILLED with my decision, they are professional and thorough and I got exactly what I asked for. Super job!

Since I did a fair amount of research on home solar and decided that I wanted SunPower Solar Panels, I limited my estimates to those companies that use SunPower panels. I got a few estimates (including one from SunPower themselves) and let me tell you, Semper Solaris not only beat the others in price but also in all the other criteria that I used to make a decision…customer service, knowledge of product, and response time! From Mike W. in Sales to all the other staff members, it was one of the smoothest home improvement experiences I’ve ever been through! Now if only I could say the same for my community’s HOA!!

In Dec 2014 after shopping around and encountering some pretty fast and loose talking solar sales reps, I happened upon a superior company through their radio ads. I had Semper Solaris install a solar cell system on my home and have had $5 /mo electric bills ever since!!! With SDG&E continually raising rates, my solar system is more valuable than ever!!!! Mark Albano (Senior Solar Consultant) walked us through the process with extreme professionalism and courtesy. Unlike 4 previous solar company sales reps I had visited with in my home, Mark presented Semper Solaris’ products in an absolute “no-pressure” manner that was surprising and very refreshing. Their installation technicians completed the job in just a couple of days and the system has performed flawlessly and has exceeded my expectations. I am now looking to have Semper Solaris install a system on my Mother’s house and am telling all my friends and neighbors about this great company!!! If you want a truly remarkable and reputable company to help you combat the electric company’s ever increasing rates, I unhesitatingly recommend Semper Solaris. Call Mark Albano and prepare to be pleasantly surprised to learn how you too can go green in a no hype – no pressure meeting.

I have just received my first “True-up” bill from SDG&E and my total bill for the entire year is only $22.75…I even called SDG&E to make sure I read the bill correctly!

Over a year ago, I first started looking into possibly getting solar and called 6 different companies to inquire about everything solar & if it was a viable option for me; I met with only 5 of them as 1 company actually told me over the phone that solar wouldn’t work for me because I didn’t really use a lot of electricity….umm, hello?!?!? of course I wasn’t using a lot of electricity because it COSTS a lot!!!
Whether you are just toying with the idea of solar or you are seriously thinking about it-please do not hesitate to call Semper Solaris and ask for Laura Poirier. I highly recommend her as she is extremely knowledgeable, explained everything thoroughly and answered every single one of my questions. I eventually decided I wanted the SUNPOWER panels and they had THE best pricing out of all the companies that actually sold them. Unfortunately my roof was not up to code and needed to be re-done (it was 30 years old) but thankfully they knew Ivan of Custom Roof Services whose bid was the best plus he and his crew were very professional, clean, efficient & did a spectacular job!

I should have done this review 12 months ago however I am extremely happy & proud to share my entire experience now and once again say a big THANK YOU to everyone at Semper Solaris!!!
P.S. I have been running my AC units whenever I want & for however long I want which means I & my 3 dogs could not be happier! =]

That being the City of Menifee beurocratic foot dragging as well as So.Cal Edison on inspections and final approval. They do things at their own speed………SLOW!
The eitire installation crew of Semper Solaris were on time and very professional, not only in the installation but their attitude. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. They deserve it. What a joy to watch your electric meter run backwards.It’s get even time with high electric bills.

After a few bids to reroof the house, I saw their ad that they do roofing also. As prior military, thought it would not hurt give them a shot. Did the stars line up for me! Right off the bat with the bid from Matt Hoey, he was on time for the appointment and professional. The bid was right with the others but the materials they were using was top grade which would have cost more with the other companies. Matt made us feel at ease for such a large job and used the standard line that he would take care of us through out the whole process and he did! He was always available to contact with any concerns and quick to response. Matt is aces in our books.
As I have a solar system for the pool, I had to get Semper to coordinate removal and installation with the original company and Elaine from the Semper Solaris office handled everything! She was always ahead of the game and always kept us updated on anything happening. Even the pool solar company noted to me that she was on top of her game and great to work with! Elaine is a gem!
Next came the roofing crew, With a visit from the Division Manager, Bobby Narcy just prior to the actual job starting, to the actual hands on crew with on site foreman Bobby, they were always on time, professional and polite. They would go out of their way to say good morning or have a nice day. My wife was at ease to talk to them or raise any concerns with were answered immediately though there were very few. What was estimated to be a 4 day job, they had it done in 3. They cleaned up daily and after job was done. I did find a couple of areas of concern after they left but as soon as I brought them up to Matt and Bobby, they were on it! Special flashings for some brackets on the roof awnings had to be manufactured and the crew foreman had them made and they look great! That is going above the call to get the job done and make this customer happy.
Final product was completed yesterday and we are very happy with the results! Semper Solaris went above the norm to get the job done and to our satisfaction. They are all about customer service and will not rest until the job is done. With such a large job and sum of money to reroof, they made it and easy process and we are extremely satisfied and happy with the company and work.
Cannot say enough of them and highly recommend them for any work they do. Thanks Semper Solaris!

This is the second Semper Solaris project for me personally. I believe my initial project led to at least two other Semper projects for friends. I want to let you know of my feeling as to the quality of work provided by the members of your team having worked on my home in Palm Springs. Alan & Austin did nearly all the physical work on my project. No one could have done a better job, particularly under the brutal heat conditions present here in the desert. They did quality work, conformed to some difficult HOA requirements, kept me informed, arrived on time and, cleaned up after each day. They moved the work along as quickly as possible. You can have all the faith in these two gentlemen and their work quality & ethics. Also in your office Kim kept me informed. There were two other men in your office who communicated with me whose names I don’t remember, Jim and Chris I think?? Your company took good care of me despite some recent changes mandated by the City of Palm Springs. Finally your sales rep Brian worked hard to make my project happen. I’ll make sure all 43 homes in my development are aware of Semper’s quality of work, fair price and diligence toward completing solar projects.

Selecting a solar provider can be a daunting task. There are many so called deals in San Diego, but if you want quality of product, service and customer satisfaction then you need to look no further. They aren’t the cheapest, but when you purchase a 25 year investment you want the best. I interviewed 2 other companies. One said they would match anybody, requested me to send my quotes to the sales rep, and he would get back to me. That never happened so they were dropped immediately. Another company that had an infomercial, I decided to get a quote. It was a few thousand dollars less than Semper Solaris, however the panels were only 275 Watts and lower efficiency. I purchased the 345 Watt panels from SS. I would have had to put several more panels on my roof to generate the same electricity. The panels didn’t look as good as the Sunpower ones either. I also needed an electric panel upgrade because I was out of circuit breakers. SS did the panel upgrade for a very reasonable price. The other company was more than twice as expensive for the panel upgrade. The process of the solar installation experience was absolutely amazing. SS has a specialist for each phase of the process. Every contact person I talked to or met in person was very courteous and answered all questions I asked. There was also no pressure from the sales end too. The beginning of the process takes about a month which includes plans and permits to start the project. But when everything was approved and work started, I was up and running in one week and that included coordination with SDGE as well as the city. Everything was flawless and that was certainly due to a company that really cares about their product and customer satisfaction.

If you are interested in solar panels, I would be happy to discuss my experiences in more detail. Just contact SS and they can forward you my number.

i liked how adam thought outside the box when designing my system. he suggested that i install a variable speed pool pump to save a couple of panels. looking out for the customer. that says something to me.

we got quotes from 3 other companies. semper was very competitive, but the pool pump suggestion pushed them over the top.

permits took forever…. not their fault.

once we got permits, things happened fast. the crew that came to install were polite, professional, efficient, knowledgeable. i think anthony was their crew chief. i liked how he’d call and keep me updated on what was going on. really made me feel comfortable.

we got PTO about two days after inspection.

glad we chose semper!

We interviewed a few companies when we decided to get solar panels. From what we could tell from the interviews, Sempher Solaris had the best customer service, product choices, and warranty. We were right to choose them. Adam Barnes was tremendously helpful from start to finish. There were a few minor snags but Adam made sure things got back on track quickly. Kim at the head office was so friendly and knowledgeable. Anthony is out on the front lines making sure all goes well with the installations. The whole team was great.

We looked at about 6 companies before choosing Semper Solaris. They were one of only 2 companies that were up front and honest about how the tax credit worked. Semper Solaris was able to get our panels installed a few weeks sooner than expected.

The installation was top notch. The red stickers that are required on the conduit are all facing the back of the house whenever possible so they are not facing the street. They painted the conduit to match the house. Great attention to detail.

We needed a rather large system (10kW). With the 347W panels, we needed fewer panels AND have higher efficiency that the competition.

One small problem we had; the app was reporting that we were generating less power and consuming more power then we really were. I e-mailed Russell on a Saturday. He e-mailed me a short time later (ON A SATURDAY) letting me know he would look into it first thing Monday morning. I got a call Monday morning saying he wouldl have a tech out later that day. It ended up being something simple, the tech fixed it right up and all is good.

I give Semper Solaris an A+ rating. If you’re considering solar, Semper Solaris is THE company you want to consider. There’s ALOT of shady Solar companies out there, Semper Solaris is not one of them.

Let me start by saying I have no regrets whatsoever. I have never been so happy with a company. My salesman was Adam Barnes (310) 874-3756. This is the number you must call if you want a no pressure salesman.

I shopped around and received bids from 12 companies. I decided on Semper Solaris.
The install went without a hitch. The Company even added more panels at their cost, to make sure that I would produce what was promised. Tell me what company does that.

I have referred this company to all my family and friends. The Installers Aran & Greg were A+ and my wife gave a thumbs up for clean and courteous.

One of the owners even called to make sure I was happy with my System and the Service.
I’m telling you, this Company is very rare. To have a sales person (Adam Barnes) that is not pushy and delivered more than I bought.

I work for an Electric company and I can say for sure that the rates are going up and up and up. Solar is definately the way to cut your expenses. My old bills were 266 on the level pay plan, but now are 3 dollars thanks to Semper Solaris !

This is my first Yelp post as I don’t tend to take the time to post opinions on message boards. But I found the positive experience with Semper Solaris on worth taking to time to write-up. Mark Albano (619) 495-1587 was with me throughout the process, from the initial energy analysis through final product installation. Whenever I had questions or needed something addressed, Mark could be relied on to put me in touch with the right resource. He was responsive to Phone, text and emails.

I had 4 quotes from various vendors and found Semper Solaris rather competitive with other offerings and they were able to offer the latest in panel technology thus reducing the footprint on the roof. Semper Solaris worked directly with my roofing contractor who was laying down new paper under the tile roof. They were able to adjust schedules so that the Panel foundations were installed while roofing work was being completed. The team at Semper Solaris adjusted the power wiring so it was routed to meet my requirements. And in the few instances where things did not meet my expectations, Semper Solaris would make the adjustments with no hassle or additional costs. It was a pleasure working with their entire professional staff at Semper Solaris and I now enjoy the escape from the excessive SDG&E bills.

Without Mark Ivory and the Semper Solaris installation team I would still be paying SDG&E extremely high electric bills. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient. Once they started it was up in a day and a half and was being tested. Great bunch of guys.

My solar system was turned on yesterday. From start to finish it took less than 6 weeks. Mike Winklepleck was the Sales rep and he answered every question and followed up throughout the whole process. I have never dealt with a more PROFESSIONAL consultant and I am not pleased easily. The work crew was proficient, courteous and very professional. Semper Solaris has earned the right to be #1 in the Solar industry with the Marine tradition of “Semper Fidelis”, always faithful, to their customers. I would give them 10 stars if I could. This is one excited and extremely Happy customer.

I am very impressed with everyone from initial sales to the final connections. They were fast and efficient with the product cleanly installed. The work was very quick and efficient. I would recommend these professionals to anyone looking for a problem-free installation. With the hot weather we are having this July and August, my investment has already started to pay me back at a much higher rate than I was getting in my bank savings account. I am very pleased with the company, products, and installation.

What can i say thats different from the other reviews? Pretty much nothing. It was all great from day 1.
The first guy I met with was professional and organized. The inspectors were open and honest about my needs. They subcontracted out some repair work that i knew needed to be done but how convenient to have them do all the work for you. The installers were great. They moved my power lines coming into the house. They replaced, upgraded and rewired my entire breaker box and even merged some old breaker boxes all into one and installed a convenient electrical outlet….all for free!!! I’m sure some of it HAD to be done to make the house up to date for the solar panels, but even the cosmetic upgrades and other stuff were all just to make me happy and be sure that im a happy customer.
The guys were all cool too. we all joked around, got some good laughs and we were like old buddies by the time it was done.
They made multiple visits to my home over the 5 month project, and they would call a day or two ahead of time and would almost always call afterward to make sure i was ok with everything. Im now connected and everything is fine. Sure, things took a little while but there are so many bureaucratic hands this sort of stuff has to go through. its not like putting gutters on your house. This is some serious stuff. I couldnt be happier and youll be glad you picked this company for your solar needs.

We signed up with Semper Solaris after weeks of research of the competing companies. They their prices were mid-range, but they were consistently praised for superior customer service and the panels that they use were at the top of almost all reviews we read on solar panels. We could’ve gone with someone cheaper, maybe gotten a free iPad or Padres tickets, but those companies didn’t stand up to well to a Google search of their customer feedback.
We dealt with Mark
(619-495-1587). He met us on time at the house (one guy from another company who gave us an estimate was about an hour late and another guy from another major company just didn’t show). Mark was on time and he was pretty thorough in his presentation. We had about 49 questions, mainly to do with financing options for purchase vs. the cost of leasing vs. the HERO program. He had answers to just about all of them and the ones that he couldn’t answer he called me up the next day as we agreed and answered them.
We signed the next week and within just a couple of weeks they came out to take measurements, send me their proposal for approval, and then schedule the installation. All I had to do was give the guys a way to get inside so they can access my attic. They left no trace that they were ever there! The county came out to inspect the very next day and We should be up and producing our own electricity by next week.

I worked with Bill Young who designed my system with Semper Solaris. Bill was very friendly and very knowledgeable.

The installers who came out were professional, courteous, and friendly. The electrician, Jackie, was very enthusiastic about solar systems in general and it was evident by his quality work that he is someone that takes great pride in doing things right.

My system is up and running and has been for a couple of weeks. So far no problems. I’m more of an “”involved”” homeowner than most, especially when it comes to a $30k+ project at my house. The only thing I would have appreciated more of was a little better communication from project management as to project status and time lines.

Overall, the quality products and services provided far outweighs my concerns. So five stars is certainly appropriate. I’ve already referred one friend who also ended up going with Semper with excellent satisfaction as well. Semper Solaris is my go to referral to anyone in SoCal, hands down.

I had been on the fence regarding getting solar for a number of years so we had done our homework. After a referral from a colleague at work and meeting Rob I knew we were ready to go all in. One of the best “home improvement” projects ever. Rob was great to work as was the rest of the team. They won’t try to oversell you panels you don’t need like other companies we have talked to.

After researching several solar companies we had Semper Solaris install our solar system, and we are very pleased with their work. Adam Barnes was the sales representative we worked with, and he did a great job. He answered all of our questions, explained the purchase/installation/rebate process, and he quickly resolved any issues we had.

Their engineers spent extra time with me on our roof finding the appropriate location to place the panels so they would not be seen from the street and still function effectively. The installation went smoothly, took only one day, and the installers left everything clean. The panels and hardware were installed well – our contractor was pleased with the flashing used on the roof shingles as well as the installation itself.

We had a great experience with Semper Solaris, and highly recommend them.

I’m the President of a Financial Service Company in San Diego and I know a little bit about Excellent Customer Service. It’s my #1 priority!

After hours of research, meetings, and interviewing several solar companies, I chose Semper Solaris and I have no hesitation with recommending them to YOU!

Laura Poirier was our Sales Consultant, Ashley Antonio was our Operations Support Manager, Chris Cole was our Director of Engineering, Trevor Decker was our Project Manager, and Sam Porter and Oscar Ojeda were our two lead installers. All of these individuals provided our family with “Excellent Customer Service”. From the sales presentation through the installation, to completion, our experience was absolutely fantastic!

Semper Solaris focuses on Excellent Customer Service, Quality Installations, using the very Best Products in the industry, and offering them at a Fair Price!

Look no further folks, I did the homework, we are very happy customers of Semper Solaris, I highly recommend Semper Solaris for your Solar needs!

One of my wife’s friend refer semper solaris to us, and David Bell come to our house and we got a quote from him that is less expensive than the other quote that I got. Once we decided to have Semper Solaris and after got the permit from the city, the process is quick. They even work with our roof contractor. In any installation, issue may arise, and when we have a slight issue with monitoring device, they respond quickly and take care of the issue. And now the installation works well Over all we satisfied with the installation.

This company has outstanding customer service along with a great product. When we decided to buy solar panels for our home, we called a few companies. The first one sent a sales rep who gave us a little information and many false claims. When we checked with the Better Business Bureau and read reviews, it became very apparent that we did not want to go that way. We had heard of Semper Solaris on the radio and decided to check out their reviews. The feedback was great, so we set up an appointment. Raj Gidwani and his assistant showed up and gave us a very informative and through presentation on not only why solar makes sense but the advantages of the Sun Power panels that Semper Solaris installs. They knew their product and answers to most every question. We signed a contract immediately and do not regret anything. They worked with us, and their installation team, led by Ernest Cabanell, were all friendly, informative, efficient, and, earnest! We have been on line for a couple months now and the performance of our system has been outstanding. Our PG & E bill for June was 157% less than last year at the time! We highly recommend this company.

This company is Fantastic! I researched Solar for two years before I picked Semper. Anela my sales lady was really informative and no pressure what so ever. I work as a Firefighter, I am also a Veteran – They gave me a discount for both of these.

I have 10 years experience building and remodeling homes. The quality of the work these folks do at the site is excellent. The installers asked me allot of questions about how and where I wanted everything installed. They also gave me really good feedback before I made a decision. Be flexible! They have great ideas – they do this every day.

I live in Jamul, I have 17 Panels, it is currently 18:42 (6:42 pm). Thursday June 16, My system is at 38 kWh for power produced. My panels face south west. Good stuff !!!! My co-worker recommended Semper. Even though he did not go with Semper (because he lives in Fall brook, he wanted a closer company), Semper mailed the referral amount of $550 anyway. How awesome is that! It gets better. My friend had Semper mail the check to me which they did – Thank you Buzz!

I had Semper remove my old Electrical Panel. Jeremy the Electrician was Fantastic, do not judge people with tattoos. Jeremy has tattoos and he is one of the best electricians I have ever worked with. He stayed until 9pm and accurately installed and labeled my new Panel. All of Jeremy’s work was nice and neat! Semper has taken the time to gather a great deal of wonderful employees. All of the ladies that I dealt with on the phone were helpful and answered all of my questions. All the folks in the field are top notch!!

Thank you Semper Solaris!

Just wanted to give some credit where credit is due. My daughter and son in law had used Semper Solaris to install their solar system and were very pleased. I had my own questions and did more research. After several solar bids, and meeting with different salespersons, we also decided on Semper Solaris. I explained to our salesman, Mark Albano that due to our schedule we only had 3 weeks to obtain permits and have the system installed. That was a pretty short window given the usual permit process and installation takes a couple months. I’m happy to say we were done in 19 days and now waiting on SDG&E permission to operate. The installation crew was friendly and very meticulous with the lay out and electrical installation. Antonio supervised all portions of the install and made sure every aspect of the job was correct. All conduit was run through the attic (not fun when it’s over 100 in the attic) as I had requested and the small amount of exposed conduit at the panel was painted to match the existing stucco. After installation Antonio made sure I was happy with the installation then the area was cleaned and all debris removed. Mark Albano has continued to keep in contact with us through the entire process. Every call was answered and every step was done on time. That’s something we all expect but rarely see nowadays. Thanks for a job well done.

Semper Solaris and especially its agent Mark Albano treated my wife and me like close friends (although at first we were not) on a 6 kWh installation, more so than two other companies (Solar City and Sol Source), that we also received estimates from. Although the economics of PV solar made it hard to go wrong at the time our installation was complete (06/30/16), anyone even in our fortunate situation could be concerned with getting the best deal available. Clearly this was accomplished, as we see the savings racking up! Throughout the process, which was not entirely free of snags, Mark and his team were in contact at all critical junctures, and always available to answer questions. The number of variables for product cost/quality, system size, changing regulations and finance options made it tough to make a rational choice. Semper Solaris stood out by its willingness to go to almost any length to aid our understanding. Equally important were the references they provided. The Semper technicians also were highly competent and easy to work with, especially Ruben. I’m pleased to be associated with Semper Solaris, even if only as a customer, and still have their sign in my front yard. It went well with our other decorations for Independence Day. Thanks Mark, and everyone at Semper Solaris!

Wanted to take some time to thank the team at Semper Solaris for a great experience during our solar project. My brother had previously purchased from Semper and had a great experience with the installation. If you call Semper Solaris, ask for Anela she has loads of personal and professional experience with solar, off-grid, backup energy solutions and explained exactly how the process flows and what to expect at each step of the way. Even though Anela was not the project manager she followed up proactively via email or phone and had an open line of communication throughout the project. Awesome sales service!

We purchased the latest Sun Power panels and inverters and the latest wi-fi monitoring and control system. Whether it’s desktop, phone or tablet I’m able to see our energy production and consumption at anytime of the day. Our system in (June/July) sent double the energy back to the grid daily vs.consumed and we’ve seen a small daily amount of $ start to rack up (will have to evaluate over the year).

very well…. we have a flat roof which some companies won’t touch and we have an existing system we wanted to add to and that threw some companies. They have a ballast system which we had hoped to use to avoid penetrating waterproofing, but city won’t permit that for a small job. They contacted the people who make our waterproofing to make sure their waterproofing would be compatible. Very professional. Took a fairly long time to get started but our engineering was unusual and I think the permit took a long time. Once on the job it was fast and we were very happy.

I will admit, I didn’t do the normal process of talk to several companies, get bids and decide. As a veteran, I chose immediately to support a veteran owned company. The fact they use Sunpower panels is also nice. I will say that in the beginning the process was rough, and if I had written a review at the time it would have been 3 stars. Initially I was told it would be a few weeks to get the install. Then they discovered I needed a panel upgrade to 125 amps. So it took about 90 days (from the original estimated 30 or so) to get the panels installed then about two weeks after that to get my permission to operate.

So, what made the three star experience five stars? Their commitment to making things right, their communication and dedication to customer service. Installing solar is a major project, and hiccups are expected to happen. The way in which Semper Solaris stepped up to make sure I was taken care of is exemplary of how service should be.

I am a difficult customer, I micromanage household projects. I want things done perfectly. After all, this is my home. The whole time the crew I was dealing with was professional, courteous and patient. I know they probably dreaded seeing my number show up on their phone, or my e-mail address in their inbox. But through it all, nothing but professionalism and outstanding service. And to me, that’s worth more than five stars. So, a shout out to Robert Cassidy, Ernest, Matt (both of ya) and Manny for fixing the issues, making sure I was happy and most of all tolerating me.

These guys are great. They may be a bit more expensive, but when I compared the price from Semper to what a friend paid after he upgraded his system to microinverters (which are default with the new Sunpower panels), Semper actually was less. Especially considering that I got the state equivalent rebate and a discount for being a veteran. So now I can run things in my house to my heart’s content and not have to worry about that meter. Use Semper Solaris, you won’t be disappointed.

Before we chose Semper Solaris for solar panels, we met many different companies for the price quote. Only the salesman from Semper Solaris can answer all our questions and good price. However, it took quite a long time to get the permit from City. I got my solar panels installed done last week. The installation team that lead by Eric are excellent!! They worked on time and willing to work more then beyond customer’s expectations! Carlos did great on installing solar electrical inverter. Looks beautiful! Ruben, Omar, and Ben(I’m not sure his name) worked on roof were great work. Eric and all other boys worked hard on my roof, and they cleaned all the corners and my solar panels before they done the job. Eric always asked us what we want, and he did more then what we could asked for! Thank you so much. The electrician Jereme also did great job. He finished the new electric panel so quick. Very good job!

Semper Solaris is amazing! We first talked to Anela as our representative, and she came to our home immediately to craft a customer design for our solar. She and Semper were incredibly helpful and flexible, and were able to navigate through all the permits and interfacingh with SDG&E with ease. Our older home ended up needing a little roof underlayment repair, and whole Semper Solaris does not do those repairs, they willingly and effectively interfaced with our roofing contractor, enabling the best quality roof repair completing simultaneously with our new solar system. In addition, when an aestheitic feature of the original design ended up not being appealing as they began the final install, they were happy to listen to our concerns and immediately suggested an alternate design. We chose the alternate design and they smoothly got the changes through the permit process and finished our install on time. Amazing company, We definitely choose them if we ever need more energy work, and whole heatedly recommend them to friends and family.

Just got my solar completed last week and I’m very happy with how everything went from start to finish. I rarely give 5 stars but Semper Solaris deserves it, they earned it. I shopped and researched solar panels and companies a lot. Probably looked at 10 or more. I realized quickly that SunPower panels were the most reliable and most solvent manufacturer in the USA. Mike W came out and did a great job of explaining everything and provided a very competitive bid that was tough to beat. I demanded that the install go as fast as possible to meet the NEM deadlines. Many times promises are made but not delivered. Mike and Semper Solaris did not disappoint and in fact exceeded my expectations. Planning was quick, permits approved in record time and they were all over the install. The installation guys, Peter and Daniel, were extremely courteous and considerate during the whole install process, which included climbing through my attic multiple times. Once completed, everything was submitted quickly to SDG&E and I was approved and allowed to turn on my system within a few days, much quicker than expected. I would highly recommend using Semper Solaris for your solar. They exceeded my expectations for sure!

Just went live June 5th with our solar panels that were installed by Semper Solaris. Could not be happier with the whole process. Started off with my sales rep Adam Barnes. He was great in explaining everything to me and made me feel at ease with the whole process. Adam is a great guy and doesn’t come off like a typical salesman. He’s more like one of your buds. Next the install went flawlessly. All the installers were very professional and great guys. They had the install done in about about half a day. Semper Solaris took care of all the details that the city inspector wanted completed before going live. All in all I would highly recommend this company to everyone and anyone looking to get solar installed. Just take a look at all the 5 star reviews.

Semper Solaris just installed my solar system and I am so happy how everything came together. Starting with the sale lady Anela that was willing to meet several time to satisfy all my questions and concerns and ending with the system being installed without any inconvenience for my family. The work got done as scheduled, the technician kept the area very clean and they were very personal and professional anytime I interacted with any of them. Anela went the extra step in coordinating asolar company to replace my pool solar system. She negotiated the price and followed up with scheduling and getting the job done.I recommend Semper Solaris to anyone that is considering a solar system.

It’s been a year since our solar panels were installed. Everything is working fine, i.e., no problem and I am very glad we selected Semper Solaris. We overproduced 435 kWh and our bill for the year is $42.67. For the initial consultation, I met with Dave B. and he was easy going and knowledgeable about different types of panels and inverters. Our price was $2,000 less than what Sullivan quoted for a system with less kWh production but also with Sunpower panels and Sunny Boy inverter.

During installation, the inverter was installed outside based on my approval but then I changed my mind and wanted it to be installed inside the garage. The installers made it happened. Also, they ran the conduit along the side of the house and up over roof where the panels were being installed. This seems like an obvious way to do things. Well, my neighbor selected SolarCity and they ran the conduit from the inverter straight up the roof so basically from the street looking at their house you can see the conduit running from the front pitch of the roof to the back pitch where the panels are installed. There goes the curb appeal. Lastly, the installer peeled off the electrical warning stickers from the conduit and carefully painted so it blends in with the stucco. It might not be legal but it looks much nicer than leaving them on like what I’ve seen from my neighbor’s installation. Thank you Semper Solaris, which also has given me money for referrals.

This is a review of my Semper Solaris solar panel system installation in May of 2016. Sales person was Bob King and installation team leader was Allen. Having researched extensively solar power systems for 2 months, solicited 6 bids and consulting in-person with 4 sales reps, I decided to go with Semper Solaris based on the quality of the hardware / equipment. Warranty. Company reviews and most importantly, price point. My sales person, Bob King completely walked me thru the entire system. From financial and environmental benefits, to the entire installation process with SCE, City, tax benefits, etc. He spoke to me in a manner that allowed me to fully grasp all the information in a very understandable way. Even the concepts I was not fully understanding, Bob provided me with the information to grasp the most detailed and in-depth grasp of everything. I really thought I would be going with the leading warehouse store as they just starting offering solar and I’m a loyal customer of this warehouse store. But after getting their quote (higher price) and almost hanging up on the numerous rude sales people, I just couldn’t get around the fact that it was just another high pressure sales boiler room environment trying to scam me. The Semper Solaris installation workers showed up when promised and performed high quality work. They were VERY nice guys. Spoke to me numerous times during each installation day to ensure everything was good from my perspective and clearly outlined everything that was happening., I was very satisfied with the installation workmanship. Semper Solaris administrative support (accounting and scheduling) was helpful and courteous, all questions were answered quickly and any questions were addressed and answered quickly. The most impressive aspect of the whole experience with Semper Solaris and Bob King was the speed and ease of the entire process. From the first appointment, to the date I signed the contract, to the installation, to the date of Edison issuing my PTO was 6 weeks, simply outstanding and Semper communicated to me the entire time. I highly recommend Semper Solaris and Bob King to anyone looking to invest in solar power. Long term, it will be one of the best investments I will ever make as costs go up on electricity but I will have all the power I need and will pay almost nothing per year for that power. This is the second house I have installed solar because of the tax benefits, power savings etc. Even if you just want to inquire about it, call Semper and/or Bob and the no pressure information is very helpful and informative. I knew I was going to pull the trigger and I made the right choice for my solar system by using Semper Solaris.

I had a great experience with Mark Ivory and their team with Semper Solaris. I had a great deal with Mark up in Oceanside CA. After meeting with him, I was able to get quite a bit of discount (left and right) and for being an active military member. It was too hard not to turn that deal down.From the start to finish with having SDGE having the system active, it took less an a month. (Was also able to make it for the net metering 1.0, so I’m really glad about that too). Starting today, I’m running clean energy. Thank you!!

All of the people that I interfaced with at Semper Solaris were friendly and professional. From the initial sales meeting to the final inspection everyone was helpful. The installation went smoothly. There was one part that needed to be installed before my online account could be activated and after I called to inquire they made sure it got installed. It was a seamless experience and I recommend them to anyone considering solar. Their quote was highly competitive; and they worked hard to make sure everything was to my satisfaction.

I had my Semper Solaris system installed in April. I wanted to take the time to thank them for being professional and delivered like they said they would. The system operates flawlessly. I feel I received a great product for an even better price. Couldn’t be happier. Mark Ivory was my sales representative, and also took the time to monitor the project along the way. Although he was not the project manager, he went above and beyond to address all of my needs. For this, I thank you Mark. Excellent work, and thank you for the system.

I have been extremely pleased with the whole operation from start to finish. David Bell is very easy to work with and very knowledgeable. I have sent him emails about questions and he always gets back to me quickly. I am adding a additional panel beacuse of my pool pump needing to be on longer and what to create a little more power than I originally purchased. The installation team was great and I could not be happier. I highly recommend Semper Solaris.

We had several estimates from different solar companies and decided to go with Semper Solaris. Bob King was our sales representative . He was very good at explaining all of our options. He made us feel very comfortable going with this company. Every time I had a question Bob would promptly get back to me. The installation team was very professional and courteous. The customer service at Semper Solaris is outstanding, I will be recommending this company to anyone looking for Solar.

San Diego First of all thanks to all Semper Solaris employees for a great experience.Called Semper for the free estimate. Bill Young came out and gave thorough information and explanation of the installation and why to go solar. I wasn’t sure if solar was right for me because my electricity bill is not sky high. It made perfect sense to purchase the system now. Bill gave a rundown of how the installation process would work. It went exactly how he said it would. Very smooth and only 1 day to install Semper.

We had to do some roof repair in conjunction with our solar installation, and Mark and Semper Solaris was amazing, working with the roofing contractor to make the most efficient and highest possible quality installation. In addition, while installing the equipment, we decided we would really prefer the transformer be installed inside the garage (not on the original plan), and they enthusiastically embraced our preferences, changing the design and getting follow on approval. Thanks Semper Solaris! We are extremely satisfied!

San Diego I looked at a number of different Solar companies when we decided to get solar panels for our new home. About 4 company representatives came to our home. Mark Albano from Semper Solaris was friendly informative and knowledgable. He was not pushy in the least. Our situation was made more challenging in that our new home is in a condominium which is aesthetically driven. The Sunpower panels we had installed fit the bill. I believe Sunpower may be one of the best panels giving years of trouble free service. Although some panels may seem cheaper at the outset, they degenerate more quickly over time.Mark provided very interesting financing options if you choose to purchase. A financed purchase maybe less than your electric bill now. As with any job, you may have questions or issues regarding installation. Any questions or issues would be resolved right away. Aside from the 25 year bumper to bumper guarantee I am certain Mark will always be there.At the very least if you are looking to install solar panels you have to contact Mark, 619 495 1587, and have him come to your home and discuss your options.

This is a great company. I am not a contractor, but have built three houses as an owner/builder and I know construction. Here is a brief description of my experience.I have a house with a very complex Spanish clay tile roof. I was concerned about breaking tiles and resultant leaks, as well as solar production, given my roof exposure issues. At the beginning of the job they obtained about 200 tiles to replace breakage. The crew (Eric and Ruben out of Orange County) were punctual, very competent, and inspired confidence. My panels are on 7 different roof sections. I have no broken tiles, no leaks, and my production exceeds my usage. The SunPower panels are wonderful. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Also, I signed my contract on Jan. 29, 2016, and my system went on line March 8, 2016. Unbelievable speed and efficiency. And, my price was incredibly reasonable. Other companies wanted to remove my clay tiles and put down a composite roof under the panels and an additional expense of about $10,000. Semper Solaris mounted the panels over my clay tile at no additional expense. I was very apprehensive about going solar with my roof issues. This company did an absolutely wonderful job.I would give 6 stars if I could.

We received quotes from other solar companies who all insisted that leasing solar panels from them was the way to go. Sunrun sent out a sales rep for us who could not answer any of our questions for buying solar panels. He said that was a horrible and expensive mistake to make. We purchased them for the same monthly price, but instead of leasing for 20 years, we will have paid them off in 12. Bill Young was able to sell us solar panels and we couldn’t be happier with them. Bill answered every single question we had for him and was incredibly patient with us. Bill was very easy to get a hold of for follow up questions later on as well. After talking with other sales reps it was clear to us that Bill is an expert on solar panels. I never thought that buying solar panels for the house could be so easy! They make it as affordable as possible and we’re saving so much more on our electric bill. The installation was quick and I was very surprised at how soon we were able to turn on our panels. With the federal tax rebate for solar panels right now this was a great investment for our house. We chose this company for many reasons, one being that they matched the California tax rebate and they gave additional rebates to help us save a substantial amount. This company exceeded my expectations and we couldn’t be happier with the final product.

I’m very happy that I went with Semper Solaris after having interviewed several companies. It was a pleasure to work with Mark Ivory. I didn’t feel pressured. Gave me a competitive price and also an excellent product. My usage is on the low end (only 8 panels based on my current needs) but at some point I will switch to EV and would probably add on.Anyway, my system was installed without a hitch. Took about 2 1/2 months from consult to install and again could not be happier. No SDGE electric bill to pay for the last 3 months except the monthly connection charge and the tax credit really helped on my taxes!

Santa AnaI can only comment about the service I received from the people that I worked with at Semper Solaris. Adam my sales consultant and Greg the installer were both A++++. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to do the install of my SunPower system. I have heard some interesting stories about installs and time frames to complete the job. Adam had a crew out installing in less than three weeks. Greg had my job permitted, installed and inspected in three business days. Greg was very informative, friendly and professional. Adam called and checked on my progress and followed up on my satisfaction. It was installed in June 2015 and have had no issues with the system. I have enjoyed my free energy now for over nine months. No regrets on my choices and would recommend Adam and Greg to all my family and friends which I actually did. All but one who chose to install have had similar experiences. The one that didn’t had an issue with an installer (NOT Greg) but was resolved by the company. Thanks Adam and Greg for representing your company so well and making this a great experience!

If you decide to use Semper Solaris, Adam Barnes was our contact whom made everything roll. He took care of it all!

I had my Solar installed about four months ago. I waited to write this review in order to ensure that everything was working the way it was promised. I am not the easiest customer to tend to but my sale person, Adam Barnes, was patient and professional and addressed all of my concerns even months after installation was complete and my payment was accepted. He even set me up with a energy efficient pool pump. so I could save even more on my power bill. I highly recommend this company to anyone who is considering solar for their home.

After several direct interview with many other companies providing installation services in Solar market, I have decided to go with Semper simply because of few key advantages:1. American made products2. Veteran owned company3. Awesome characteristics of the panels (more powerful than anything else, which means less panels on my roof while getting more power)4. Ability to use the converter to power up some appliances (without battery back up) if lights are out during a day time.5. Great warranty programs6. Awesome financing7. Last and at most importance VERY professional, and yet friendly customer service. About my experience;After contacting them over the phone, I got a call from Adam Barnes (THE COOLEST SALES REP EVERRR!!!) and we sche3duled an appointment at my house to go over some numbers.What a nice guy and so knowledgeable (and I am not an easy person to deal with I am an Engineer and so I ask alotttsss of questions)So, after we came to an agreement on pricing and system requirements then next step was the design of the layout and electrical wiring for my review and approval and further submission to city. Again, I have tortured them with questions and requests to modify to my requirements and aesthetics and they were very accommodating and efficient in addressing all my requirements. The design was submitted to the city to obtain the permits when I got a call from Greg who introduced himself as the Project Manager handling the project. He assured me that I have NO reasons to worry about anything and that his crew will be starting the installation in the next few days. Then comes the fun part crew showed up and installs 17 PANEL SYSTEM IN ONE DAY ! I was like … Holly Smocks’… The thing looks AWESOME on my roof and my neighbors are all very impressed with the speed and efficiency of the entire job. Greg You’re the MAN!Tomorrow I am schedule for inspection by city and shortly after that I will be flipping the switch.The bottom line if you want the job to be done right don’t waste your time go with Semper. I have done my homework and checked out everyone (including Costco), but Semper Solaris got my approval to do my house. Thank you Adam, Greg, Cole and everyone who made this possible.

San Diego I entered my solar agreement with Mike Barnett and am thrilled to be generating electricity from my solar panels.Some of the items that stand out with Semper Solaris is that I told them how much electricity I wanted to generate each month (about 940 KWhr). There were other companies that did not want to sell me a system this large.Above all, the price quoted is the price I paid for the system. There were no surprise charges that I’ve found other companies hit you with.The installers of the solar panels were friendly and professional. I certainly believe Semper Solaris has installed a great system I’ve only had it for a week with no problems.

Semper Solaris just finished my solar install. It has not been turned on yet and I will add the saving results later. I originally contacted this company because it’s veteran owned and they hire vets and I want to give back to those who serve.The main office is in San Diego but I had the LA crew so this is where I felt the review should go.Adam was my salesperson and you will not meet a nicer or more knowledgeable person. I gave him the okay, he convinced me Sun Power panels are the best.A couple weeks later when I hadn’t heard from anyone, I found out that somewhere the ball had been dropped and my plans never made it to the city. I was so upset that I canceled my job. Adam immediately got the owner and his boss, Don involved, they apologized profusely and asked for a chance to make it up to me. Don said that the company’s reputation is worth more to the owner than profit so they offered to expedite my job, add 6 more panels at no additional cost and upgrade my electrical panel. It was too good to pass up but, I was skeptical. Don reassured me, gave me his cell # and said I could call anytime.Next I met Greg, my project mgr and he introduced me to my crew, Adam (lead), Gary, Steve, Arthur & Harry. Each day they would be here around 7 am and leave at 4pm and each day they cleaned up Everything, pretty much unheard of in construction. No cussing, no loud music and they were good to our dogs. When we needed extra tiles to match my roof, no problem, they stopped and did electrical work while we sourced the extra roof tiles.Today was the city inspection and we passed with no issues. Adam asked us to walk around to see if there was anything else that needed done. They gave us a large number of leftover roof tiles in case we ever need them and stacked them where we asked. They removed all the debris and didn’t even ask to use our containers. I have worked with a lot of contractors since turning the original 1500′ sq ft house into a 3650′ sq ft house….and these guys are great!If you are going to do solar, ask for Adam and tell him you want Greg & his team!

I had a very good experience with these guys in So Cal. They provide good product options at a reasonable price and work with you to select the one that is right for your application. I was particularly impressed with the sales rep Adam who came to the house and pitched me on the project. He was totally professional, polite and knew his stuff big time. Since then he’s been on top of the project and has never let anything slip though the cracks… despite some typical issues that pop up. Having said that the entire Semper team lead by Anthony were polite and showed up when they said they would making the install and inspection process go well. I agree with one of the other reviewers, iIf you’re in the market for solar, I would give Semper Solaris a call. It’s also a pleasure to support a former Marine. My son in law just retired after 8 years and two tours as a scout sniper. I have to say that this definitely influenced my decision to go with these guys as well. Ooh Rah!!!

I reviewed and interviewed at least 6 solar companies and I found that SS had the best balance of quality and price. I admit I was a nervous and fussy customer (I paid cash for my system and wanted to drive a hard bargain) but the sales rep, Mark Ivory, put up with my many questions and follow up needs, and gave me the needed answers and comparisons. I felt comfortable enough to select SS especially because I felt they had the best system for the money using high efficiency and high quality SunPower panels. If there was a fly in the ointment, and there usually is, I had to nervously wait a while from when I signed the contract and until system install (10 weeks), which I was told did not have anything to do with SS but with the local power company, which I am not so sure about (but that’s my own insecurity talking, hence still the 5 stars); having said that, the installation crew (Reuben’s team) was fast, professional, and a pleasure to deal with. It took them a little over one day to install 20 panels plus a standard inverter and they made everything look neat and as inconspicuous as possible (they even painted the wiring conduits to match the exterior house and roof paint colors). It took another 12 days for the system to turn on and I waited a couple of months to make sure everything had been operating well and the system is generating the expected power (27.8 kWh/day on average) and I am glad to report that I am one happy Semper Solaris Customer. Throughout the process, the communications and the treatments I got from their reps, whether they were office or field reps, were all very courteous, professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and just plain awesome all around. NOTE: I am not related, nor am I connected to anyone at Semper Solaris in any way shape or form. This is a truly fair and independent review from a real customer and would recommend this company and this particular solar system and setup to friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else.
