  • derrick.jackobson

    Solora Solar took the time to answer ALL of my questions before, during, and after the installation of our solar panels. Installation went smoothly as well as coordinating for applicable permits (including when we requested two additional panels late in the process). The forecasts on power generation were spot on, as well as the calculated incentives that were available (which we have since received). I would definitely recommend this company.

    "6kW PV with LG chem (Lithium) battery back up" We are very happy with Solara Solar’s design and installation. They handled all the permitting, coordinating with PSE and managing arrival of all the materials. They did an awesome job making it a smooth installation. The installation crew installed everything in in two partial days. They did a great job with no issues. We definitely recommend Solara Solar.

  • Mike & Connie

    Thank you so much for visiting our home, taking measurements, listening to our wants, and preparing a comprehensive bid. You are the first person we have run into who was able to give us so much information about solar energy, and we have been interested in it for a long time.

  • Dennis D.

    Solora Solar installed my system in middle of June, 2013. Last June 30th reading was 410. This June 30th reading was 10,706.

  • Reinyn B.

    Everything went exactly according to Solora's prediction and timeline. Our system has been running for over a year and generated the maximum $5000 incentive from the state. I would highly recommend Solora Solar to anyone interested in a PV system.

  • tomgiese

    Very helpful and knowledgeable. Prompt and tailored responses. Competitive pricing, high quality equipment and great warranties.

  • markandnancy

    Solora solar team installed an 11.8 kw system on our roof in Richland. They are very experienced and professional. We are happy with the work that they did and the equipment that was installed. It's been about a year and a half and the system is humming along without any problems. We have now produced over 26 megawatts of power. I will hire them again when I am ready to install a couple of Tesla Powerwalls.

  • J. Cone

    One of the best investments we have made. Significantly reduced energy costs and have received greater than anticipated rebates. System has exceeded production expectations by appx. 11% over the past two years. Installation was timely and professional. Has had regular follow up at no extra cost and no prompting. Highly recommend.

    Solora Solar provided a quick design and easy installation of our solar system. They were very professional, kept their scheduled appointments, and return my calls and emails to answer every question. The electrical contractor came with a team of 3 workers that were very polite, efficient, and did great work. I highly recommend Solar Solar if you want a worry-free experience.

  • J. Haler

    "Calculations and Service - Spot On!" Solora Solar was our choice out of 4 bids we received for our 40 panel solar system. Before installation Syed answered all of our questions accurately and honestly. During installation they were able to trouble - shoot every issue, from delivery issues and manufacturing shortages to utility and inspector delays. The system was installed on schedule and is performing slightly better than Solora Solar's predictions indicated it would. I wish every company we had ever worked with had been as good a decision as our decision to hire Solora Solar.

  • B. Wong

    Thank you Solora for being VERY easy to work with! We went back and forth with questions, and messaging and finally decided to give it a GO! they were very communicative when products would arrive, and even helped unpack panels in the rain when I was unable to leave them out front of my home due to HOA rules. I would absolutely recommend Solora team to install for anyone. They were professional and quick!

  • Jesse C.

    Interviewed three different installers. Solora Solar was clearly the most knowledgeable and experienced. Answered all questions, confirming what we already knew. Excellent communication throughout the process. Installation was without hitches. Finished before deadline. Highly recommend.

  • nwremington

    I had been trying for months to get the company that installed my system to correct a problem with one of my inverters that kept shutting down. After getting the run around and being told the problem was in the wiring in my house I called Solora Solar. They stopped by and not only diagnosed the problem was in one of the inverters but called the manufacturer of the inverter and got them to send me a replacement ( it was under warranty }. They did in 20 minutes what I couldn't the other guys to do all summer. They truly earned 5 stars with us.

  • Stewart G.

    Syed takes care of all the details of the purchase and installation. The only thing left for me to do was write the checks.

  • CLgreen

    We couldn’t be happier with our freshly installed solar generation system.  Solora Solar created a plan that was fairly priced and implemented in the agreed time frame. The electrical contractor used was well versed in this type of residential installation. Their work was of the highest quality. Our system is up and running and performing as advertised. We are already generating more energy than we are currently using. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Solora Solar for anyone considering going solar!

  • hank

    We have four installations and each one has preformed as anticipated. At our business we are experiencing significant savings on our power bill and the install was done very professionally. I have two other installations one at my home and two on a commercial building and all are preforming extremely well as expected. Thank you Solora Solar

  • jandcr

    Out of 6 companies and bids Solora stood head and shoulders above the rest. Their BBB rating is also the highest possible. Solora was most professional and knowledgeable by far. (2 of the other companies were notably unprofessional - one even refusing to give their bid in writing - the other calling with a whining sob story after being eliminated.) At no point did Solora criticize or adversely comment on any of their competition - even when asked (a couple of other companies did). Solora was also the most honest and while absolutely not skimping on equipment or quality, did not try to push their own agenda or any unnecessary equipment in any way. They did not try to influence us with irrelevant "free gift" offers like some. (One tried to offer a "free" cruise which would eventually of course have cost several times what it's supposed value was.) Everything down to explanation and samples of tax forms, etc. were clear and detailed. Their proposal bid was by far the most thorough (and 12 pages long). Solora's energy efficiency and return on investment calculations and estimates were thorough, detailed and a little more conservative than any of the others (a couple of which were a little too optimistic). (The system is exceeding the estimates.) It was the only one that listed make and model of every piece of equipment. Being an Engineer by profession I asked some difficult questions - they answered immediately and backed up with datasheets and worksheets. Even one of the inspectors commented on their technical knowledge and expertise. The difference between Solora and others was so marked that we had decided they would probably get the job before even receiving their bid. It also turned out to be the best price and best customized to our needs. The work was completed and the system operating a little over three weeks from accepting the bid - less than some wanted just to order equipment. Solar handled everything including permits and inspections and all necessary paperwork prepared and submitted for us, we did not have to lift a finger. They gave us hands on user training and a comprehensive customized owners manual that included all equipment documents, pre-filed warranties and samples of tax and WA State incentive forms already filled out for us. The work was done in two days and was excellent quality. We are extremely pleased with the system, which has exceeded our expectations and performed flawlessly. We would absolutely recommend Solora Solar to anyone considering a solar electric system.

  • kristine.K

    This company has been very attentive with the whole process from start to finish and took care of everything for me, between the permits and scheduling all the different labor aspects, I didn't have to be active in the process which was a relief as I don't know much about solar just yet.

  • kejabarnes

    Well executed rooftop solar panel installation, Some notes to people considering an install. 1. Solar panels make great snow slides and it can come off in bug chunks. We have a short flat extension over the front door and window with a walk in front, last winter that area (despite shoveling off the flat part) came loose all at once and the walk was buried under 1 1/2 ft of snowy slush. Fortunately no one was underneath it, but something to be aware of and plan for. 2. Understand how the rebates work in your State and what the tax liabilities are on rebates or payments. We have a 28 panel install and produced more than 2,000 kwHr over our usage the first year.

  • Sam J.

    I am so grateful that I had Solora Solar to install my system. They have been in this field for over 15 years so they are very knowledgeable about the services. Solora Solar takes care of everything! I don’t have to do anything and I completely relied on them to make sure everything got done and to my liking. Very supportive and explained everything to me every step of the way! I’m so glad I went solar! Thank you Solora Solar!

  • jim.young26

    I found the Solora Solar team to be very professional and easy to work with. Never having done anything like this before i had many questions and all where answered in a timely manner. It took 7 weeks from start to finish. Including having to wait out several weeks of rain delays. Not surprising given the normal weather in the Seattle in November/December. I can't comment on savings as it has only been winter. I would highly recommend my team.

  • Hank S.

    We have three installations, total of 200kW, and each one has preformed as anticipated. At our business we are experiencing significant savings on our power bill and the install was done very professionally. I have two other installations one at my home and one on a commercial building and both are preforming extremely well as expected. Thank you Solora Solar.

  • David G.

    Solora Solar was an excellent company to work with. They provided a very detailed report for us, itemizing our costs, the financial benefits, the energy savings, as well as a shading analysis. Project was completed in the time frame initially described. There were no unexpected expenses.

  • Jarek S.

    Excellent experience.

  • algottschalk

    I would highly recommend Solora Solar for anyone looking for a new system installation. Solora was great to work with, and Soloras' bid was by far the most competitive we received. We installed a 12 KW system, and it was completed in just over 2 weeks, with Solora taking care of all of the details- start to finish. We have had only one problem.... when our Fronius Inverter quit working - and Solora was quick to get it replaced by the company, and back up and operating. I would again highly recommend Solora to anyone in the market.

  • Brian H.

    Solora Solar did the most complete analysis of all four bids I have and were also the most professional. Thanks for your professionalism. You're going to do well as this is about to catch fire for you and your business.

  • Isaac S.

    I Purchased a 12kW system in Eastern Washington. It has been up and running for about 3 weeks now. I am very happy with the experience I had with Solora Solar. My questions were always answered quickly, I had a preexisting issue with my main breaker which was resolved at no cost to me, the installation was done quickly and professionally. Actual solar installation took 2-3 days, had to wait on inspectors and power company etc. The cost of the system is easily justified based on the incentives and current production in March. Very competitive with other quotes I got. I have recommended this company to my own parents.

  • ericm1000

    Solora did a great job answering all of our questions and keeping us informed through out the process. The crew that did the work was excellent. Solora handles everything including the permitting process. What we were quoted is what we paid. There were no surprises and we are now in production generating 100% of our electric load from the sun. When finished we were given a notebook with all the pertinent information and warranty scoop. The 30% Federal Government rebate that ends this year will also be great.

  • Susan G.

    Very good from start to finish. I would highly recommend Solora Solar.

  • Valerie S.

    Syed at Solora Solar is top of the line in professionalism, customer service and insuring all details are taken care of. I highly recommend Solora Solar to anyone who is considering solar panels. Syed provided a very professional proposal with options which included the details regarding federal tax credits, maximizing incentives, as well as sizing advantages. Once I had identified which system was the best fit for me, Syed took care of every detail. The system is performing above the initial projections. I couldn't be happier with the system. Thank you, Solora Solar!!!

  • sebatiangeo

    From the start, Syed was very knowledgeable. He didn’t try to push something on you that you won’t need. His price was also closer to the low bid. BREA said solar should run around $2.50 and Syed was right there. Very comfortable to work with  Solora. I am using them for battery install in the future and would definitely recommend them for any solar install.

  • Kandicearnp

    They helped me get my rebate checks. They were always there to answer any questions I had! Thank you Solora!!!

  • Bonnie S.

    We are very satisfied with service provided by Solora Solar and will definitely recomend them. They are very knowledgeable and didn’t pressure us at all.

  • Raj G.

    In March 2016, we installed a solar system on our residence in Richland, WA. After careful research and communicating with a few installers, we chose Solora Solar of Yakima. They were absolutely professional throughout the process of providing information, answering questions, helping with the selection of our system, handling the permit process, the installation, and subsequent followups. Unlike a couple of other vendors who were more interested in completing a sale as quickly as possible, (and in at least one case even provided incorrect information with additional (unnecessary) equipment), Mr. M****** was completely upfront and very clear about what his company was selling and the process that was involved. In the end, it was professionalism, sincerity, and top-class service that won Solora Solar our business. Sincere thanks to Mr. M****** and his staff for helping us with our system. Despite the unforeseen harsh winter of 2016 in ********, our system ended up working even better than Solora's previous estimates and we were able to reach our full incentive well before the June 30'th deadline for the previous year. Without any hesitation, we would recommend Solora Solar's services to anyone in the market for a residential (or commercial) solar system. They really know this business.

  • BradHa26

    I feel that Solora Solar did a very good job for me. The weather in January is not always great for doing work installing things on a metal roof, but they did a good job of doing the inside and on the ground work when the weather was wet and then taking advantage of the nice days to take care of the on-roof work,. People always wore masks when they worked inside, which I appreciated, So far, in spite of the cloudy weather in February, the system has been producing more KW per day than promised, and I am very happy with it.

  • Sid K.

    We are very pleased with our system, Solora Solar did a great job keeping us informed during the whole process. System is working flawlessly, we can monitor our system performance via Web monitoring system. It's a great tool to see how the system is performing, especially in Winter.

  • Bruce S.

    Very helpful, explained in detail how Solar Energy works and what kind of additional incentives are available for commercial project like ours. We are very pleased with our system and the work Solora Solar has done.

    Solora solar & team was very helpful and informative before, throughout and after the installation was complete. He explained everything throughly and answered any questions we had. He and the installation crew was very professional. I would recommend Solora Solar to anyone looking to install a residential or commercial system

  • John & Corinne

    An extremely honest, professional and customer service oriented company. And all those extra little things you do add up to a huge difference.

  • robinannfaulk

    We have had Solora Solar for 4 years now. Their service is great from the beginning with good cost estimates and reimbursement numbers. They installed promptly without delays and their follow up just checking with us to make sure we have received Washington state reimbursements and that the system is working OK is surprising in this day. They really back their product. We are enjoying the low low power bills in the summer. Thanks
