Working with Sandbar was great. They were significantly cheaper than other bids we received, finished our project quickly, and answered all of our questions. The installation was so fast that they finished it in one day before our young child's afternoon nap. The entire team was friendly and helpful. They made everything so easy for us. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Sandbar Solar & Electric are so good at what they do. They coordinated with all of the appropriate people to complete the work. They also helped update electrical items that would benefit our home. We received great looking panels which have incredibly saved cost in our electric bill. Thanks to all at Sandbar Solar & Electric

Prior to Sandbar I tried several other electricians. I read about Sandbar in the Santa Cruz Style magazine. Sandbar came out to my rural mountain property and rewired my whole solar system. Since then my solar system has been performing awesomely! I no longer have to run my generator, which has greatly reduced my carbon footprint. On a scale of 1-10 I would give them a 25! I’ve already referred several friends/neighbors to them.

We decided to install a solar system on our small Aptos home this year. After meeting with several local and bay area solar businesses. We chose Sandbar. They were friendly, professional and, most importantly, very knowledgable. They spent as much time as needed explaining the process (sitting around a picnic table in masks). They worked with us to decide on the appropriate size. They also helped us replace the electrical panel which was not up to code. They did a totally outstanding job and it was painless for us. Every person we interacted with was friendly and professional. There wasn't one hiccup. They came and went pretty independently and we were impressed with how each person was really good at their job. They have their process down tight. They arranged the permits and inspections with minimal input from us. All and all, it was a very positive experience. I have confidence that if we were to have any issues, they will be around a long time and will be available to help us. We made the right choice with Sandbar Solar.

The provided a quality product at a good price. They were easy to work with and the system has been working flawlessly. This is the second system I have installed and it is producing better than my first one, and they are the same size systems. The micro inverters let's you know how much each panel is generating so it is easy to see if there is a problem with a panel. Happy to answer any questions about my system. Mark
