Incredibly happy with our panels

“My husband and I kept seeing solar panels go up in our neighborhood and finally decided to explore our options. We called Sun Badger Solar and I am so glad that we did! They are extremely knowledgeable and were very patient with us and our many questions. The Sun Badger team made the entire process so easy for us. The project team had excellent communication and we never wondered what we had to do next or when. We are incredibly happy with our panels! I only wish we would have done this sooner!”
– Erica J., Illinois

*This is only an estimate. Costs are subject to change based or solar assessment.
**Adjustable Block Program: The Adjustable Block Program will offer a set price for purchase of Renewable Energy Credits (“RECs”) via 15-year contracts from qualifying projects, and the price will be adjusted for successive volumetric blocks (hence the “adjustable block” name). For systems under 10 kW, the entire incentive will be paid upfront, covering approximately 30 – 40% of the system costs.

You feel better about it with Sun Badger Solar

We were referred to Sun Badger by a neighbor and they gave great reviews and we scheduled a couple of other meetings with other companies but Sun Badger had the best package to offer from their software to their communication to the overall feel of what we got from the company. Other companies were a little bigger and took a while to get someone in, just didn’t feel right.

Really streamlined process

It is a wonderful thing to have solar panels on your house becuase your elecricity bill goes way down and you feel a lot better about the fact that you are using less carbon dioxide in the environment. So there are a lot of really great benefits. I looked at a lot of different companies and ended up going with Sun Badger because they really ahd a streamlined process and they didn’t sell me anything else, just the solar panels which is what I wanted.

Worked with the Sun Badger team on my home install. Team was organized, communicated each 'gate' in the process and... timeline expectations, and did an excellent job of shepherding me through the process. The install was handled by their sub Home Team Energy and although an issue was encountered with three panels (Hint: Amazon Key delivery can be dangerous if you have something leaning on the garage door) they quickly enabled a resolution and it did not impact the overall system enablement. A month into my system going live and would recommend both Sun Badger and Home Team Energy to others.read more

I have made inquire about solar panel installation.Unfortunately I had to speak to Jennifer Florentino. She seemed... very incompetent. Asking a lot of questions without providing any information. Being not helpful at all.If business has such incompetent person on front end, I would be very concern about rest of operation.Use them on your own risk.read more

My panels just went live last month. Production so far is right on track with their estimates. During the first phase... of the process they were super attentive and gave me lots of good info. Somewhere in the middle of the process communication was lagging and I had to push a little, but in the end it was completed 2 weeks past their initial estimate. Not too bad. Overall I'd recommend them. The panels look great.read more

We started our quest to find a solar panel installer for our roof about a year ago. We contacted them about installing... solar panels on our roof. It seemed like many of the companies selling installations were based in California and we wanted to deal with a company based in the midwest because the weather and solar output would be different from that on the west coast. They responded promptly and talked us through the process thoroughly. The other installers didn't seem as diligent about the details of the installation and their prices were higher (at least their first estimates were). We followed through with Sunbadger and have been pleased with every step of the process.read more

I was considering a few different companies and purchase options when a neighbor recommended Sun Badger. I spoke with... Ann several times and she was very responsive and patiently answered all my questions. Once I made the decision to move ahead, everything progressed smoothly and the install was completed on time. The field techs made a last minute adjustment on panel configuration because they thought it would look better on my roof and I am glad they did. System is up and working fine, and I’ve produced a lot more energy than I’ve used so far! I am recommending them to friends.read more

Nice people, just very unresponsive. Project taking forever.Its been almost 9 months since I signed with Sunbadger.... At first everything was great, but I just have to keep prodding week after week to get any sort of movement on my account.They might just be stretched too thin, the actual work, when done, looks good. But I've got panels on my house still not functional after months amd months of asking why.I'm a pretty reasonable person, and It seems other have better experiences. Perhaps your project will go better. I'm not sure what made my project go on the ultra slow lane.read more

I researched several companies when exploring whether to go with solar panels. I had a friend who recommended another... company, but I was most impressed with Ann and Sun Badger, as they had they not only had competitive pricing and the best quality panels, but are a financially strong company that is geographically diverse. This is important if you have any warranty issues in the future. Ann answered so many questions I had and was transparent in all of her responses. I was impressed that the install was completed in less than one day and it has been great to use their app to see how much solar energy we are generating with our panels every day (we have already saved 4 trees in less than 2 weeks).I was happy that every interaction with I had with Sun Badger representatives was positive and professional. As someone who did a lot of research, I highly recommend you go with Sun Badger.read more

We were very pleased with our solar experience with Sun Badger Solar company. After researching for two months, we... decided to go with a company that is locally operated. Sun Badger solar services 4 states and has great customer service in all of them, unlike some other nationally operated companies whose customer service is only good in certain states. From our first call with Marina to our last call with Audrey after project installation, the running of the entire project was very efficiently handled. They explained solar energy, the savings, benefits, and answered all our questions thoroughly. From permitting to applying for federal and states credits, Sun Badger representatives helped us and were always there with assistance. Compared to my neighbor’s solar project done by a big name company, I sure don’t have any visible ugly electrical pipes on my roof. Overall, the quality of workmanship, professionalism, and the product they use are highly rated.read more

I inquired with this company to get solar for my home. They called and promptly set up a phone call with Noah R. I... accepted the calendar invite and five minutes later I get a notice that the appointment was cancelled with no explanation. I replied to the cancellation notice asking if they needed to reschedule. The response I got was “Isn’t your roof in the direct shadow of the tall building to the south?” I reply that I don’t know because I have not moved in yet. No response. I keep pushing and I get another email saying, “Too shady.”That’s how professional they are. They didn’t even have the decency to explain unless I pushed. If you don’t equal $$$, they don’t care to even talk to you. That says a lot about a company. I would avoid them.read more

I've looked for quotes for a Solar system for my house. Sun Badger was the only one with such a responsive and... accommodating team. I asked to speak to someone and I meat Noah shortly after. He spent time answering all my questions and concerns. He was professional but also personable. It was a pleasure working with him and the Sun Badger team. The process was easy and informative, especially through their app. The system was installed within the time line they set. I haven't had a problem since July of 2019 but I'm sure they'll be very helpful judging by the initial process. Thank you Noah and Sun Badger team for a great experience.read more

The entire process went well. I felt well communicated with on timelines and progress. Our system was about 10k more... than other quotes received, but did feel that we were investing in a more superior system. I hope that to be the case! We installed late December and were quickly covered with snow. We haven't produced yet, but looking forward to it soon!read more

We researched many solar companies before deciding on Sun Badger Solar. I am a new home owner, and super nervous. I had... questions...so many questions. I had all of my questions and concerns answered in such a fast and professional manner, that I quickly lost my concerns. They even answered questions I didn’t know I had! They just really understand the process and they know what concerns people have.Day one, COVID, so what would have been an in person interview process was held over the phone and online. Everything was there. She had worked up our install, showed us the panel layout on our home and explained all the pricing and incentives. They explained our different product options and had information for each available on the computer. They were super organized and professional...That’s when I knew, I wanted to work with them.Permitting was an issue, as our area doesn’t really have solar and our local jurisdiction didn’t know who was supposed to handle it. We got shuffled between county and village code enforcement. Well, I didn’t, but Sun Badger did. I was kept informed through the entire process and they assured me they were on top of it. They were.Permit to install, install was scheduled and the entire install was completed in 2 days, then the electrical inspection. Our local authorities are notorious for their inspections. They have closed down businesses with their made up rules. This is the part I was most nervous about. The inspector came out, was looking everything over, and made a comment about how they really paid attention to detail and everything was done really well. He even made the comment, “I’m impressed!” And signed off on our install. This is when I was completely reassured I hired the right team!Our utility company was slow to give us the approval to operate, but that is outside of Sun Badgers control.We have had the system on for over a month and just received our first negative utility bill! It’s an amazing feeling!read more

Sun Badger might not have been the least expensive, but they have done the best job with the best materials in my... opinion. Noah Rothschild suggested the atheistically pleasing all black panels vs the traditional models and boy are we extremely pleased! I also see many installations where the mounting brackets are able to be seen easily or overhang from the end of the panel which looks cheap; the crew did such a great job making the panels look great on the roof. Sun Badger also uses microinverters which I do not know why they are not the standard everyone uses. I love using the Enphase app accompanying my panels to see the generation daily. I knew the process would be long and difficult, but Allison handled each phase fantastically. Many companies quoted 6-9 months from contract signed to installation and we were up in running in 4 months! We are more than pleased with how our layout turned out and the only downside is we could not fit more panels!read more

Our solar experience with Badger Solar has been flawless. From our initial meeting to the completed installation,... everything went as planned. We were always kept informed as to the progress of the permits and applications. The installation crew completed the job in just 2 days and were very happy with their work. We did experience a slight glitch getting all the solar panels to come on line, but a quick email to Kendall and she quickly resolved the issue remotely. My wife and I would give Badger a big thumbs up!!read more
