What Customers Say About Us

  • 5 star review  A good friend of mine recommended Sandbar Solar and I can truly say it has been a wonderful experience in the pre-work, installation and subsequent maintenance of the solar panels we installed in our home. It was so seamless and easy from start to end and in particular want to call out August Materazzi who patiently answered each and every question I had through the entire process And it feels great to be able to generate my own electricity and not rely on PG&E 🙂

    5 star review  About five years ago I decided to get solar panels on my home. I chose to go with Sandbar Solar after carefully considering three other solar installers in Santa Cruz. I'm really glad I did. The PV installation process was smooth from start to finish. My energy bill went down significantly. I recommend Sandbar to all my friends who live in the Central Coast and San Francisco Bay Area. These guys have been around for a long time, they're pros!

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  I had Sandbar install a 5.3kW solar system on my home in Benicia. I SIMPLY COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED with the outcome of the project. It is quite rare to find any contractor who delivers Quality, Price and Schedule. Sandbar did! They did exactly what they said they would do, quality work, on time, and on budget. And they had to put in some considerable effort to complete my project on schedule due to a very finicky building inspector's personal preference. They did the required extra work and finished the installation on-time and prior to year-end. This is a very professional, well organized and run company. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a solar project.

    5 star review  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.
