Escondido, CA / Hidden Valley Orthodontics


Project Description

Client:   Hidden Valley Orthodontics

Location: Escondido, CA
System Size: 30.60 kW DC
Completion Date: 12/11/2015

102 LG Solar Panels, 102 Enphase microinverters

Project Description:
Dr. Fortney, her husband Jeff and their top notch staff run a great practice! The commitment to their patients is amazing! We are thankful for the opportunity to help them go solar and appreciative of the ongoing business relationship we’ve established.

Because this system was going to be so visible to the street, the customer chose the LG black on black solar panels for the most appealing look. The biggest challenge on this project was getting the per solar panel monitoring to work correctly due to all the noise on the lines from x-ray machines, etc. When we factored everything in, the project was successfully delivered to a very happy customer two weeks ahead of schedule.

We can’t thank Hidden Valley Orthodontics enough for the opportunity and confidence in Palomar Solar.

34 MAGE solar panels, 34 Enphase microinverters
This system has per solar panel monitoring as well to hold all parties accountable for the 25 year warranties

Project Description:
J.D. is a straight shooter! I’ve never met someone more connected and true to their word! He had done extensive research and as a vet, was disappointed when another company told him they were giving him a veteran discount and it was still a $1,000 more than Palomar Solar using cheaper equipment and components. No one else had given him the option of black on black panels or shown him hundreds of systems they were monitoring at the panel level. Since his install, we have completed several projects for his friends. We really appreciate J.D. and our continued relationship!

``Adam is a straight shooter just like me. We immediately hit it off! But Adam was only the beginning. The entire team and staff at Palomar went above and beyond to make us happy. I have never had experienced anything like it with another contractor. I tell everyone I know about Palomar Solar. I’m still waiting to be on one of their radio commercials ha ha. Thank you Adam and Palomar Solar!``

40 Siliken solar panels, 40 Enphase microinverters
This system has per solar panel monitoring as well to hold all parties accountable for the 25 year warranties

Project Description:
Just like all of our customers, the Davila’s had done extensive research before choosing Palomar Solar. Our solution of using black on black LG panels and Enphase microinverters made the difference. The only real challenge of this project was in the main electrical panel change out, however due to our extensive experience in electrical solar installations the panel change went smoothly.

``We are very happy with our decision to choose Palomar Solar and have referred them to several neighbors. The entire company truly cares about each customer and it showed with every interaction.”

San Diego, CA / Art in Aluminum


Project Description

Client:   Art in Aluminum

Location: San Diego, CA
System Size: 9.00 kW DC
Completion Date: 08/31/2015

30 LG solar panels, 30 Enphase microinverters

This system has per solar panel monitoring as well to hold all parties accountable for the 25 year warranties.

Project Description:
Just like all of our customers, Art in Aluminum extensive research and interviewed several good local contractors before choosing Palomar Solar. This builder wanted something aesthetically pleasing. They went with the LG black on black panels. During construction we were able to run all conduit within the walls. The builder saved some money by installing a composite roof for us to install on then framing our panels with the clay tile. This is a very desirable look and makes sense when starting from scratch or if there is a need to re-roof.

The challenges of this job were that it was new construction. So you are making a number of trips to complete things as opposed to showing up and slapping panels on a finished home. We did not mind putting the extra effort in. We are happy to have partnered with this custom builder and have since completed another project with them in Rancho Sante Fe.

50 Siliken solar panels, 50 Enphase microinverters,

Project Description:
After years of looking into solar and realizing he knew more than anyone he contacted, Andy decided to start Palomar Solar. Not wanting to use an actual customer to learn the ins and outs of solar installation and the process, he used his own home as the first Palomar Solar project. Initially, the system was installed with a Fronius central inverter. This was prior to Enphase as they were just coming to market. After installing many Enphase systems and realizing all the subsequent advantages of microinverters versus central inverters he decided to install 50 Enphase microinverters.

Zip: 92025

Looking back at where we started to where we are today. I’m most proud of the fact that we did not take any short cuts at our customer’s expense. From day one our goal was to not be “that contractor. The fact that we have installed over 25,000 solar panels and 99% of our customers are extremely happy with us makes me extremely proud of the culture we have created. We understand our employees and customers are the keys to our continued success!


Escondido, CA / All German Auto

All German Auto Solar System

Project Description

Client:   All German Auto

Location: Escondido, CA
System Size: 53.68 kW DC
Completion Date: 12/16/2015

176 LG solar panels, 176 Enphase microinverters

Project Description:
All German Auto was founded in 1991 and has an excellent reputation for taking care of their customers. After extensive research we are thankful and honored they choose Palomar Solar to help them go solar!

Our initial design was to have all the panels facing south. However, during our permit review the Fire department had asked for additional space around the sky lights. This resulted in a significant amount of lost panels and production. So, in order to get the production All German Auto needed, we went with an East / West racking system, thereby allowing us to meet our goals.

The other challenge was the existing main electrical panel. To back feed all the solar power we ended up installing a new main electrical panel which had to be custom made to fit in the available space. The job was completed in two weeks with all panels on within 5 days, just before the end of 2015 ensuring they received their tax credit.

This system has per solar panel monitoring which is unique, especially in commercial applications. In our opinion it’s the only way to hold all manufacturers accountable at the panel level for the 25 year warranties the products come with.

Solar Panels Worth It in 2019

Santee, CA / Cali


Project Description

Client:   Cali

Location: Santee, CA
System Size: 6.240 kW DC
Completion Date: 03/31/2014

24 LG solar panels, 24 Enphase microinverters
This system has per solar panel monitoring as well to hold all parties accountable for the 25 year warranties

Project Description:
The majority of this system needed to be installed on the front of the home facing the street, therefore aesthetics were extremely important to them. The black on black LG solar panels, and the fact that we paint all conduit that is not able to be run in the attic along with the black racking made a big difference. This was a very straight forward project and turned out great, as expected.

The home solar power quote

The home solar power quote

Project Description

Location: Newport Beach, CA
Client:   Dr. Szabo

System Size: 6.86 kW DC
Equipment:   2014
Completion Date: 12/21/2012

28 LG panels, 28 Enphase microinverters
System has per solar panel monitoring to hold all parties accountable for the 25 year warranties

Just like most of our customers who are given the option, Dr. Szabo chose black on black LG solar panels. The biggest challenge for this project was getting approval through the HOA, The Irvine Group has very high standards. However, we have completed several projects since then within their HOA’s and each project has been seamless. I wish more HOA’s vetted contractors the way The Irvine Group does.
