This was our first Enphase installation. This customer changed the trajectory of Palomar Solar forever an in a great way. They had been calling contractors because they wanted the latest and greatest product: Enphase microinverters. At the time no one would install Enphase. Being a small company at the time we wanted to see what it was all about. So along with our customer we took a risk and it has paid of tremendously! We quickly realized all the differences and benefits Enphase microinverters brought to the table. The biggest one’s being the way the systems mitigate shade and the advantage of per solar panel monitoring.
Up until Enphase, there was no way to hold anyone accountable at the panel level for the 25 year warranties being offered. This single job changed our thinking and all residential and the majority of our commercial work has been with Enphase microinverters. After six years we are now the leader in Enphase installations in Southern California and very unique in that not only do we monitor all of our customer’s panels but they have access to the monitoring as well. Once homeowners see the difference and understand it. No one pics a central inverter anymore.
Note* Black on Black solar panels were not available at the time. It was not until a couple of years later that manufacturers starting making them.
“I would recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing and installing solar energy panels for their home. I was very impressed with them, they showed up on time, worked cleanly and answered any questions I had regarding my new system. We are very happy with the system we purchased through them and wouldn’t hesitate to do it all over again. Thank you Palomar!”
