We can’t claim all of the credit—the sun does most of the work! Thousands of Direct Energy Solar customers have selected and trusted us with their solar installations and have turned their sunny roofs into electricity savings. But now we’ll let them do the talking.
“It was shockingly affordable. We needed to control our energy costs. When the sun shines, you’re making money, or you’re saving money, however you want to look at it. When we first pulled the lever, we just watched the meter until we generated our first kilowatt hour and then we hugged.”

My March 2016 electric bill was $11.20 and my April bill was $7.91. It gets even better: May bill: -$47.44 (Credit), June bill: -$ 0.09 (Credit).
Buying a solar powered system for your home right now is a no-brainer. Besides saving money in the long term, I feel good about using renewable energy.
Direct Energy Solar offered the best technology. They quoted exactly what we wanted without compromise.
Direct Energy Solar had the best reputation and gave me the best payback. They were upfront about everything, honest about the details, and were pretty flexible in working with me on the design and how the panels were fitted on the roof.
Direct Energy Solar was the only company we could trust to do the work. Direct Energy Solar’s in-house engineers use Enphase microinverters—the only way to go with this type of install. Two other companies came out, but weren’t sure how to handle the situation.
I am very picky. I wanted it the way I wanted it and Direct Energy Solar was the company that met every criteria I had. It’s fun to know you are not paying a power company anymore, know that everything is as green as possible, and know you didn’t give up anything to do it.

One of our friends had a great deal of success with Direct Energy Solar. We were able to substantiate their reputation and very competitive price structure, which gave us a great deal of confidence in choosing to work with Direct Energy Solar.
When I decided to get solar panels, my reasons were mostly financial. But now that I have them, it’s also psychological. The most rewarding part is that I’m generating energy from the sun!
I really appreciated how helpful and available my salesperson was. He was very patient and knowledgeable, and then he handed the baton to my project lead. I like the turnkey approach—soup to nuts. Busy people really appreciate it.
People think solar is expensive but they don’t make the right calculation—where else can you put your money into something that gets this kind of return? Our Direct Energy Solar array was the key to us reaching Net Zero Energy status.

We had a great experience with Direct Energy Solar. They wanted to make sure we were happy. Everything was explained very well. There was nothing I needed to do. It was almost too easy! And their work crew were the nicest, most polite crew I’ve ever had come through the house.
Now I can afford to keep some of our luxuries because we got solar. It is definitely going to make it less painful to use our hot tub in the winter. Here we are generating our own electricity and now who cares how high the electric rates go up.

Direct Energy Solar’s evaluation of our roof was more thorough and logical than anyone else’s, but their flexibility when it came to meeting our specific needs was the tipping point for us.
Direct Energy Solar is trying to be the best at service and it shows. They were respectful and delivered exactly what they promised, for the amount of money they promised, and on time.
They were very professional in their responsiveness, knowing the facts and having the answers. If they didn’t have an answer right then, they got back to me quickly.
Everyone was knowledgeable and professional. They were very responsive. Even when I sent them emails at 7:00 in the evening, they’d get back to me almost immediately. They had ready answers to all my questions—about the system, the roofing, the run-off from the rain, etc. They did the job on time and all went right as planned.
We chose Direct Energy Solar because they had the total package. They thought through everything, all possible scenarios, even moving. Two key selling points for us were that they offer microinverters and that they offer upfront payments for the value of your energy credits.
Working with Direct Energy Solar was very pleasant. It was a painless process. They made everything very convenient. All the guys were very accommodating. They were there to answer my questions at all hours of the day and night. There was never a moment when I felt that they threw something over the wall and ran. They were always on top of things, and kept me informed of the next steps.
I feel pride whenever I see our solar panels. With solar panels, the carbon footprint that you leave behind is so much less. It makes my husband feel good. It makes my kids feel good. Anything to help their future makes me feel good. And it saves money, too! I would say to someone considering solar panels, ‘If you thought solar panels were beyond your budget, look again’. Our solar panels are doing what we expected and more. We’re ecstatic!
I chose Direct Energy Solar because they came across as being the most knowledgeable. As an architect, I could tell they knew how to specify and design systems. They also ran cost analyses and payback scenarios for us on a variety of options, which was very helpful. And, I liked their ‘soup to nuts’ offering—they handle everything, including the paperwork for the government rebates.
Direct Energy Solar was the third or fourth company I talked to, so I considered myself more solar savvy than the average person. I was trying to catch them as I compared vendors, but they were jumping over my stumbling blocks before I even laid them out there. I wanted my system up by the end of the year so that I could be eligible for the government grants. They said they could start the following Monday.
The choice is the right thing to do environmentally and the right thing to do financially. Most folks don’t appreciate how rational an investment it is. It’s good for the pocketbook and good for the Earth.
I tell people that if they’re going to make the decision to go solar, they should do it now. Now’s the time to do it, and to start reaping the savings. The sooner you do it, the better off you’ll be.
Direct Energy Solar offered a more efficient system than the other companies, because they use microinverters. They were more detailed in their analysis of how much power the system could produce, and how much our trees would affect the performance of the system.
