  • We not only called Solar Impact, but we spoke to other companies as well and felt very comfortable choosing Solar Impact. They kept us informed all the way regarding the rebate data, filing, etc. and took care of that for us.

    Betty Southard, Gainesville
  • My initial interest in solar electricity was based on environmental reasons but it had to make financial sense. Barry and Elaine Jacobson of Solar Impact shared both those concerns. I have purchased 11 systems from them and am happy with each.

    Ken McGurn, Gainesville
  • We have friends who had a terrible experience with another solar company in Gainesville and were thrilled when we heard new people were entering the market. We knew two families who had had good experiences with Barry and Solar Impact and so we felt confident going forward.

  • We were interested in solar as a renewable source for electricity that would be there if the power lines were down. Solar Impact answered all of our questions, had great references and offered to do our project at a great price.

    Jay and Janie Hutto, Gainesville
  • The motivation to install solar came from looking at what I could do to help solve the looming problems of humans consuming nonrenewable fossil fuel at increasing rates. There is a need to switch over to alternatives before we use up all the easily available fossil fuels.
