This customer has a beautiful property in Encinitas, so unlike a lot of ground mounts aesthetics was important to them. They decided to go with the black on black LG solar panels which look much better than silver frame and white back paper. Due to the size of the system we had to change out their main electrical panel as well. Trenching to the system was a little challenging given there was a small retaining wall. The project turned out great! They have since added a nice flat area for the kids and a beautiful pool.
``We researched and got quotes from several companies and in the end, decided to go with Palomar Solar for a large ground mount installation for our home. While their quote was competitive, I should point out that they were not the cheapest - but with an investment of this size, there were other factors that became more important. Adam was excellent to work with. He's a straight shooter who encouraged us to seek out independent opinions of his company and their competitors. He drove us around to see several similar ground mount installations that they had completed. At each location, he was greeted warmly and enthusiastically by his past clients. The installation was started and completed on time, with no cost add-ons or adjustments. The panels and monitoring system they recommended work as promised and look great. We even had our general contractor tell us (unsolicited) that our solar installation was one of the best ones he had seen. Palomar also processed our California Solar Initiative claim and took care of all the details. We received the rebate check a few months after the job was completed.
Overall, I'd recommend Palomar to any friend or family member who was considering solar. They're honest, easy to work with and great at what they do.... from the owners, on down to the electricians, installers and the administrative staff.”
