  • "Overall good experience with 8MSolar"

    Reviewed Sep 23, 2021

    I waited a while before writing a review on 8MSolar because I wanted to have some experience with living with our system before writing a review. In addition, our powerwall installation was delayed several times due to Tesla delaying the shipment multiple times which was beyond the control of 8MSolar.

    I've been very happy with the production of our 24 panel system. So far it has exceeded the production estimate. One of the panels turned out to be defective and 8MSolar worked with QCells to RMA the panel. QCells was not particularly responsive and pushed back on replacing the panel but ultimately sent a new panel. I appreciate 8MSolar pushing on that issue with them.

    The installers did a nice job installing the system and made a last minute suggestion on rearranging a couple panels that made it look better on the roof. My HOA stipulated that our panels had to be on the back half of the roofline which posed some design challenges. 8Msolar redesigned the layout to comply with the HOA request. The powerwall installation was just completed by an electrician hired by 8MSolar. They did a good job with it and I met with the city inspector who signed off on their work. My only issue with the powerwall installation was that it took twice as many days to complete as initially estimated. The only reason I am not giving 8MSolar 5 stars is because the crew that delivered the solar panels scraped up the frames on several of the panels when the unloaded them. This is purely an aesthetic issue, but they should have been more careful. Overall, my experience was a good one and I would recommend 8MSolar and would work with them again.

  • "Highly professional"

    Reviewed Jul 29, 2021

    8M Solar is highly professional. They worked with me to get over required legal paperwork, took just one day to install the solar panels, and were super communicative throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend them.

    8M Solar installed my home solar installation and I highly recommend them after considering several solar vendors in the area. I particularly want to applaud John Willis who truly helped me understand what was needed to support my energy need according to what is allowable by Duke Energy. He was instrumental in presenting various options to maximize my solar energy collection and benefit from the Net Metering policies of Duke Energy. He also prepped a successful HOA appeal for me to allow for a front-facing solar installation which saved me a lot of money and also helped maximize my energy production. The entire team, from Sal, Roy Electric, SK, Chris, and David truly valued me as a customer and were very transparent about the entire process and I felt very well supported by their team. No other solar vendor had this much attention to customer service and satisfaction in this area and all at a very reasonable price! I will update this post once I have information to share about my solar energy generation. To date, I have been completely satisfied and continually impressed by the entire 8M solar team and highly recommend you contact them for your solar installation interest.
