Solar Impact Testimonials

I was interested in going solar primarily to do my part to lessen global warming. I met with Solar Impact at the home show in the O'dome, and they got right back to me, unlike a couple of other companies I had talked to. Solar Impact was very professional and knowledgeable, gave me all of the financial and technical information I needed, helped with the rebates, and their predictions of the performance of my system were very accurate. I am very happy with our system.

Neil White, Gainesville

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. The project was done as promised and all was completely taken care of for us. And when we did have a concern, we simply called the people at Solar Impact and they handled it for us. We are fully satisfied with their work and would recommend them to anyone considering going solar. And, the reduction in our electric bill is wonderful and we are doing our part to help the environment.

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. I referred them to my friends who installed more than 2000000 watts from them because of their price and their service. Solar Impact provides good pricing and top quality service. They truly care about solar and me, their customer.

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 originally felt we were too late for the FIT program. It was Barry who got us one of those lapsed places in the queue so we could qualify. We did and we are very happy with the results. It made the Solar Impact system a reasonable investment, an unusual item in this financial climate. We would give Solar Impact our highest vote of confidence and the best recommendation possible.

I went solar for the first time 30 years ago with a solar water heater, and have been a proponent ever since. This time, I was interested in solar electric, and climbed on board, and was fortunate enough to meet with the Solar Impact boys – the other company I called sent a guy out that did not want to talk to the woman of the house, but the man, so he lost me real quick. Barry was right there for everything, and was always ready to talk to me and was both professional and courteous. I was very happy with Solar Impact, and found them very easy to work with.

Solar Impact was very responsive in getting technical and financial information to me before I made the decision to put Solar PV on my roof. I'm pleased with the way the solar PV system and monitoring system is working and how Solar Impact responds to my many questions for information.

Keith Hostetler, Gainesville

Solar Impact's service is excellent. They went above and beyond normal customer care before, during, and after our installation. Before we started with the project they explained both the technical and financial aspects very well which helped us make good and informed decisions. Installation was done quickly and with attention to detail. After the system was online they helped us in the application process for rebates and grants. They continue to monitor the output and alert us about any problems. After our first year of operation we can testify that their prediction of annual yield was right on the mark. We are all around very happy customers of Solar Impact.

Alex and Nadia Angerhofer, Gainesville

We love our solar panels. We have saved a lot of money on our electric bill. Our neighbors with the same size home spend between 300 and 400 dollars a month on electric. We spend about 100 a month while using the AC and/or heat. Our Oct. 2011 bill is for 49 dollars and 20 of that is just to be connected to the grid. Solar Impact was very quick to give us the estimate and details of exactly what they would do for us. They also had the best price out of 6 companies we contacted. Elaine and Barry were extremely helpful in filling out all the paperwork for the rebate and credits. All of the people who came out to do the actual installation were timely and efficient as well as professional and courteous.In the end, I wish we had doubled the amount of solar we have, and hope to do just that one of these days.

Jane and Ray Rauscher, Bell

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. Solar Impact provided us with everything we needed for the Feed In Tariff and for the grant in lieu of the tax credit.

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. Solar seemed like the most "green" long-term replacement, or at least one of the "green" ones. So I applied when GRU publicized the Feed In Tariff opportunity.Solar Impact responded quickly and professionally, and answered my technical questions carefully. I chose Solar Impact after having discussions with persons who had dealt with them for commercial and home installations previously.

Richard Mankin and Tina Komaneicka, Gainesville

I chose Solar Impact because of the excellent recommendations given to me by people I know and trust. Solar Impact responded to my initial inquiry with enough financial and technical information for me to make an informed decision. Their employees were professional and courteous and provided excellent assistance in applying for rebates and tax credits. I am glad I went solar and I enthusiastically recommend Solar Impact to anyone that asks me about my solar company.

Dr. Richard Kilmer, Gainesville

Our decision to use Solar Impact was based on their professionalism, assistance, information available, and price. Solar Impact answered any and all questions we had before, during, and after the installation of our system. Our questions were answered in detail and were easy to understand. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.

Dr. Irvin N. Gleim, Gainesville

Solar Impact recently completed a 10KW installation on my roof. I first learned about the homeowner benefits of solar energy systems from Don Ryan at the Gainesville Home Show. Don and Barry know their stuff – they answered all of my questions thoroughly,

Bill Pokorny, Gainesville

Solar Impact provided outstanding service through all phases of 'going solar'. This included administering my application to the GRU Feed In Tariff, securing approval for the system, and getting installed and on-line to meet important deadlines. My experience was that each time a difficulty arose in this emerging program (not a fault of SI), they worked promptly and positively to advance the project and protect my interests as a client - even after the system was completed. I give Solar Impact my highest recommendation as consultants and full-service solar energy system providers. Additionally, their monitoring system, which allows me to get hourly updates on production with monthly and annual tracking over my iPhone, is fantastic.
