What Customers Say About Us
Years ago we investigated getting solar panels, but decided to look into it again this year. We had already spoken to a few other companies when we met with August, our Solar Consultant at Sandbar Solar. August was wonderful at giving us honest information and helping us to get what we needed. He helped compare which solar panels were best for our usage. We followed up with our own research and choose the Panasonic panels offered by Sandbar because because of their high efficiency. The communication with the Sandbar team was excellent through the entire process. The installation crew was polite and installed our system in two days! It was less than two weeks from signing our contract, that our system was installed. It is an absolute joy to see our meter go in reverse piling up credits for a lower electrical bills. I would highly recommend working with Sandbar Solar!read more
Sandbar is one of the best Santa Cruz solar companies in town, hands down. Scott and his team are experts at what they do. I've witnessed firsthand their attention to detail, and stellar customer service. A solar panel installation for your home will take place without a hitch because Scott will make sure nothing falls through the cracks. These guys know what they're talking about. They've been around for a long time, which is reassuring. Even if you live in San Jose or anywhere over the hill they can service you. They've helped me and my friends switch to solar, and I'm so glad we did.read more
It's been a year that I have had my solar. Sandbar installed it in a timely manner. They were less than the other companies I had checked out. I even had a problem with one of the panels. They fixed it so fast. No charge. After this year I got my bill from PGE NO charges due for electric. Sandbar had put up the right amount of panels. I'm so happy!read more
Professional ethical and highly recommended. I'm an electrical engineer and I expected detailed answers to all my questions and they delivered. They are craftsmen in their trade and have my complete trust.
I did ask the town inspector (Los Gatos) about them when he came out to inspect the installation, he indicated to me that he never has a problem with the multiple Sanbar installs he has approved.read more
