Customer story in San Luis Obispo

Customer’s request: Knowing how well Tesla products perform, Mary R. was keen to install a couple of Powerwalls in her home. After researching Tesla-certified installers in the San Luis Obispo area, she was happy to come across Photon Brothers. Not only did we have the product and certification she was looking for, but our track record of 5-star reviews was a testament to our superior customer service.

Our solution: After contacting our friendly customer service team, we scheduled Mary for a free Powerwall installation estimate. Upon careful review of her home, our experts recommended a two Powerwall system. Although supply-chain issues caused a slight delay, we kept her informed of our timelines each step of the way. Now that her Powerwall installation is finished, Mary couldn’t be happier with the quality of workmanship we delivered. For the 5-star service she received, Mary shared the following kind words about working with Photon Brothers.

“Photon Brothers DELIVERS in spades! This project took a while to complete due to supply chain issues, but it’s all up and running now. I am more than pleased with the two Tesla batteries and the Powerwall setup. Thank you, Photon Brothers, and thanks to my project manager, Lillie Niemeyer, who kept me informed every step of the way.”
