What Customers Say About Us
August and the Sandbar Solar team have been really great to work with! I highly recommend their services!
It's been a year now, since Sandbar installed the solar system on the roof of my home. I want to a send big thank you to the salesman Sean Thiel, who let me talk him into me getting this great investment. He was very knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Alicia Moss did a wonderful job co-ordinating installation. Thank you Will Crick for the clean and efficient work done on site.Got my even up billing from PGE, and just as planned, they owed me money.Great job everyone. I strongly recommend anyone wanting to have a system installed, to give Sandbar Solar & Electric a call.
When I began my research of Solar installation companies, I was certain I wanted to include local small businesses. I wanted to make sure I gave them an opportunity to compete for business with the larger national solar chains (Tesla, SunRun, Sungevity, etc.). I received MANY proposals and I truly shopped my investment with various companies. There was one that stood out from all the others from the very beginning and that was SandBar Solar & Electric! I was fortunate enough to have Sean Thiel as my initial point of contact. He was incredibly knowledgeable and was willing to invest his time to ensure I was comfortable with the investment I would be making. After many discussions about system size, various solar panel types, and inverters; we finally came to a confident decision and came to an agreement and proceeded. I was pleasantly surprised with the assistance we received from the SandBar staff throughout the process (financing, design, permitting, and construction). I do not regret any part of my decision for having SandBar. I would encourage everyone living in our community to choose them even if you are going to pay a little bit more, you are supporting a local business. You are supporting working people in our own community. Not just that, you have local customer support should you ever need it. You are a valued customer, not just another sale.
Working with Sandbar was excellent. We were kept informed about every step. I have not had the installation long enough to learn how much I am saving. Will have to give final evaluation after the :tru-up " bill.
Sandbar is a huge supporter of our community here in Santa Cruz. They brought their solar trailer to our LogJam surf contest this past weekend and provided all the power for the entire production. In past years we've had to use a fueled generator and it was amazing to have only the sun giving us our power this time. It's silent, no fumes and looks incredibly cool on top of that. Sandbar provides the trailer to dozens of other events in the county each year, and are committed to giving back to the community in a ton of other ways. Not only are they great at what they do - they're also one of the most generous neighbors you could ever want. We love Sandbar!
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.
Excellent and quality work and support. Very much appreciated the system and the people at Sandbar installing our solar system.
Years ago we investigated getting solar panels, but decided to look into it again this year. We had already spoken to a few other companies when we met with August, our Solar Consultant at Sandbar Solar. August was wonderful at giving us honest information and helping us to get what we needed. He helped compare which solar panels were best for our usage. We followed up with our own research and choose the Panasonic panels offered by Sandbar because because of their high efficiency. The communication with the Sandbar team was excellent through the entire process. The installation crew was polite and installed our system in two days! It was less than two weeks from signing our contract, that our system was installed. It is an absolute joy to see our meter go in reverse piling up credits for a lower electrical bills. I would highly recommend working with Sandbar Solar!
So glad we decided to go with Sandbar! The team is knowledgeable, efficient, and personable. Their equipment is top of the line. We couldn't be happier with our new solar system, thank you!
