Always Felt I Knew What Was Going on, Results Have Been Wonderful

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Occidental Power. The solar power system they installed on my roof has been running for over a year now with no problems.

I initially came in contact with Occidental Power thru the recommendation of a contractor acquaintance. At our fIrst meeting we went over my power bills and what I had in mind. Occidental Power then produced an analysis of savings, a rough schedule and an estimate. I agreed, and we started .the. project. During .the project, we met several times to make sure everything was on track (it was) or to sign some paper work (all of which was handled by Occidental Power).

I am very happy with the service I received and with the product I ended up with.

Everyone I was in contact with was happy to answer my questions (and I had many). AIl the employees had quite a bit of knowledge and a good attitude and went out of their way to make sure I knew what was happening and was inconvenienced as little as possible by the construction. Things were kept clean and neat. On the paper work front, I didn't have to do anything but sign things. When we started, there were the permits and things and as the job went on, various papers for rebates, PG&E metering changes and so on. We would set up a meeting, they woul4 explain what it was I was signing, I would sign and that was it.
The entire job was also complicated by the fact that I was having a new roof put on at the same time. Occidental Power coordinated their work with the roofers and actually ended up better off than if had had the jobs done separately.

There was only one delay in the project. This was due to the inspector being new to the field of solar energy and having to be educated.

Overall I couldn't be happier with the way the whole thing went. Occidental Power handled everything in a professional and timely manner, I always felt I knew what was going on and the results have been wonderful. I will have gotten all my money back in the form of lower electric bills in less than ten years time, sooner if the rates go up. The best part is my only maintenance is to clean the panels off once in awhile.

I would be more than happy to give a tour of the installation otto answer any questions that I can.
