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.

My husband and I kept seeing solar panels go up in our neighborhood and finally decided to explore our options. The... first company we called was absolutely atrocious and would have completely turned us off to the whole idea. Then 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. The guys who came to install our panels were courteous and professional. We are incredibly happy with our panels! I only wish we would have done this sooner!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
