Testimonials

I can't say enough good things about Photon Brothers! They helped me out of a difficult situation. My previous solar contractor failed to connect me to the grid and did not respond to my requests to complete the paperwork. In desperation, I called Photon Brothers and asked for advice. Maddie calmed me down, told me what information I needed to send her and then forwarded that information along with the application to PG&E. The result is that I am now properly connected to the grid and finally getting credit for the power that I generate. This is the kind of company that you want to do business with. Thank You Photon Brothers!

Completely pleased with the install job done by the guys at Photon Brothers. The sales team was more like partners and less like pressuring salesmen, the install was clean, and the panels are efficient. Would recommend. :)

Having checked out other solar installers and finding them wanting in various ways, I was pleased to discover Photon Brothers. My initial meeting with John was informative, without any "sales pressure". After reading their proposal (which they amended to our benefit without any input from us) and contract, I quickly signed up. Their scheduling was prompt, handling all their paperwork in a timely manner so as to facilitate the actual installation. Their installation team was professional and cordial, wasting no time in executing the work while still making time to answer any questions. It only took two half days, including the thorough clean up of the area. Building Dept. inspections passed with not one correction called for. The quality of their work was reflected in the relationship with the building inspector. Having worked in the construction industry and having seen the best and worst that can occur, I can state without reservation that you can do no better than to do business with Photon Brothers.

Probably the easiest home improvement project I've ever done. We got lots of quotes but Photon Brothers warranty and low loan % stood out by far. My monthly loan payment is the same as my average electric bill, only that loan is done in 12 years and won't increase each year. They took care of everything from permits to setting up with xcel. Today I produced 140% of my energy. Thanks guys!!!

By far the easiest and best experience you will have with any home improvement project. I completed my solar project with these guys in February/ March of 2017 and everything from the planning to the final inspection was easy and the panels themselves are top notch. Jim Payne is the individual I worked most closely with. He is courteous and prompt. The customer service is on another level. As soon as I ended the phone call after a quick conversation with Jim, the tax documents I needed were in my inbox. I did a ton of research of what solar provider to go with and I lucked out with these guys. A year later and everything is going strong.

Like all the others have said, these guys were incredible. The quote was easy, low pressure sales, and since we paid cash the price was below the competition with the best panels out there. I got quotes from 5 companies total (Namaste - LG & SunPower panels, SunRun - Canadian Solar Panels, EcoMark - Canadian, Solar City, & Solar USA in order of most to least favorites), and no one came close to the efficiency and price point, and they were also the only ones who didn't want to put an inverter on the side of my house. The installers felt like friends after spending a few days at our house, the project manager and engineers were great and quick to respond to my emails, and the person who came out to set up the monitoring - all were top notch. Now we're just waiting for xcel to install our meter, and we'll be all set! HIGHLY recommend.

I got a couple quotes and did a lot of research before choosing Photon Brothers and SunPower panels. They cost a little more. But the system had 22% efficient panels, the best out there, and we're getting more for it. Our house is completely electric, no gas, and so in the winter we used to have huge bills. In March we've made 90% of our power, on our little town home roof with 18 panels. I can't wait to see the electric bill! Service was great. We had a complicated install. The HOA board wanted details, and more fasteners since we live in windy Shanahan Ridge. No problem. The Boulder inspector wanted the panels grounded to the hardest spot in the whole house to get to, in our laundry room. One of the Photon Bros. owners spent 8 hours at our house making it happen, and doing exactly what they said they would--getting our system complete by Christmas. (Love that 30% tax CREDIT!) And the install itself was on a cold, windy day. Salesmen are no-pressure; engineers are smart and efficient; and the installers are hard-working people who do it right. The whole company is responsive--they even painted the conduit on the outside to match our siding. Great people to work with.

My first appt with Bryan Beres was great! Bryan is incredibly informative, professional and easy to understand. I felt comfortable asking him any/all questions that came up regarding our solar options. I look forward to working with Photon Brothers on this solar installation as we firm up details. He is willing to work with me on the layout of our roof in ways that other companies wouldn't even consider. The small business approach will win my business for sure! Thank you!

Amy

Photon Brothers are awesome! They did an awesome installation and inspections passed with flying colors. From sale to completion I was 100% satisfied! They traveled some distance to service my solar needs as well! Highly recommend!

James

I interviewed five companies before deciding on the Photon Brothers. The SunPower panels were the first draw, but it was their professional process that stood out above the others. David sold me with his obvious experience, honesty and straightforward approach. When I called the other companies to explain my decision, they all agreed that SunPower was a good panel. The Photon Brothers installed my system three weeks earlier than they promised. The installation crew was very professional and made me feel that they really cared about doing a good job. I LOVE not having a PG&E bill every month and the Photon Brothers made going solar a pleasure.

Brad

When we decided to have solar system installed on our home we had four companies come out for a bid. We could not be happier with our solar system installed by Photon Brothers. They were recommended by a close friend and his positive experience led us to meet Bryan Beres, the sales person for Photon Brothers. Bryan explained the whole process from start to finish. The difference between Photon Brothers and the other solar companies was that we were not pressured to commit. The other solar bids offered discounts. However, my feeling is this: if you're discounting something, then you're overcharging to begin with. Bryan explained the difference between ownership and leasing. We went for ownership because the excellent financing plus the federal tax rebate made the cost of the solar system easy on our budget. They use Sunpower panels which I researched and found to be one that offered the best performance and warranty. We had our electrical main panel updated which was included in the total cost of the system. You will not be disappointed if you contact Photon Brothers for any solar product.

When SolarCity told us they wouldn't even talk to me about putting panels on my home because of my flat roof we were kind of discouraged. Thank goodness Photon Brothers wanted my business. Our consultant, Sam, was fantastic beginning to end. He was super flexible with our schedule and maintained great communication. He helped us through the loan process, advised us when we had some headaches with our insurance company, and he even answered the phone a few times when I had questions after the contract was signed. The installation manager, Derek, was great when he came out for the initial inspection and he was there both when the solar panels were installed and when the electrician, Rich, came out to do our necessary service panel upgrade. Brandon, Tyler, and Cody were respectful of my property and cheerful throughout the installation process. I'm naming names because each of these guys made an effort to make sure I was happy with what I was buying from them. The whole crew worked very well together and really seemed to enjoy their jobs. I got a turn-key 5.44kWp system and I'm 100% happy with it.

Great experience installing solar panels with Photon Brothers. Competitive price for top-of-the-line Sun Power panels. Experienced and friendly installation crews and great personal service. I had a couple of questions, and they had somebody out to my house within a day to answer them. I would definitely recommend them.

Michelle
Homeowner

Great company for solar. I was extremely happy with the whole process. From sales to installation, the whole company has been a pleasure to work with. John Johnson from sales was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He helped me navigate through all the complex options of panels, inverter types, payment options, rate of return, Xcel's Solar program, etc. From there, the rest of the team from their project manager down to the installers were all top notch and extremely responsive. I was impressed with how quickly the whole process went for me. It has been about 3 months since my system has come online and I have been impressed with how well the SunPower panels are producing. I went with the micro-inverters as I had shading issues around my house. I would recommend them if you are planning to go solar.

Photon Brothers are outstanding to work with. They just completed a quality installation on our home in Shell Beach. David and Maddie were extremely professional and everything happened as promised and scheduled. Thank you for your efforts!

Theodore
Homeowner

When you compare, make sure to realize Photon Brothers uses only premium quality panels. They took care of all of the paperwork and coordinated with SCE. Installation crew left our site clean and were quick with the project. David sat down with me at the end of the installation to discuss any concerns and make sure the installation was what we were expecting. 5 stars to David and his team!

Keith

After a bad start with the biggest competition, I did my research and found excellent reviews for Photon Brothers. Boy, was I glad! The entire process went very smoothly, no problems at all, and it was relatively fast. The only significantly slow portion was XCels net meter final install (5~6 weeks). I was able to use less panels than the big competitor, as SunPower panels are top of the line & significantly more efficient per panel (345 watts). Even though our net meter arrived mid Dec, we are already over-producing and putting back onto the grid for credits. So, I paid for less panels w/ less money and got the same sized system. The installers were absolutely great. I'd like to thank Richard the master electrician for a very thorough job on the Service Panel upgrade. Jim, the project manager has been fantastic with help and questions after the fact. The whole company really seems focused on the customer. The system comes with a master monitor which you can access via the web over wi-fi. You can see hourly daily, monthly, yearly and all-time production. You can easily see in graphs and a dashboard when you have over produced or taken from the grid. Really happy with our system.

Just got our first bill. Only $8! The process was painless and the install looks great. The sales person was low pressure and the project coordinator kept me in the loop throughout the process. I'm very happy to support a local company!

Jayme
Homeowner

Had a great experience with them, everything went as smooth as could be, from on time installation to having everything explained in a way that didn't feel pushy or sales-oriented like the experience with one of their competitors did. Very happy that we have been getting our electrical bills with a credit each month and we are doing something good for our environment.

Ron

We just hired Photon Brothers to install an 8.2kW solar system on our wood patio at our home in Templeton, CA. I can't speak highly enough about the team at Photon Brothers. After talking with many other companies and researching the options, it was a no brainer to go with them. Unlike all of the high-pressure solar companies you find in stores, David (the co-owner) is very honest, fair, and looks out for your best needs. Not only did his price come in, at, or below all of his competitors, we got top-notch American-made equipment and excellent local service. Don't waste your time with the big guys. Talk to David - he'll take care of you!

Dennis
Homeowner

My house looks great, system uses the best equipment and is working well. They worked hard, did a professional job. I recommend them 100%. Ask to see my house in Pismo. A solar system needs good equipment and installers, Proton Brothers have both.

Paul
Homeowner

These guys were great. We were up and running in only a few months. They sold us some U.S. made panels that blend into the roof. I love supporting local companies that have attention to detail. I recommend them to everyone. Solar is rad.

Alex
Homeowner

I cannot say enough good things about this company. I looked at five companies, all referrals from friends. David (company co-owner) won me over immediately with his straightforward, knowledgeable style. In the first hour he pointed me to a way to change PGE pricing approach which lowered our bill without solar and made his sales job harder. Who does that? Throughout a fairly long bidding process, David was consistently responsive, He proactively suggested to put the solar panels directly on the roof rather than the tiles, which looks great and eliminates tile issues. The Sun Power panels themselves are highly rated, and their approach was the most cost efficient of the five choices. The system is up and cranking, even providing power in some of the worst rain we have had in many years. The reporting system is clear, and easy to track.. I would like to give them six stars - totally classy, professional, service oriented operation.

Bob

What a pleasure it is to work with Photon Brothers. The office provided all the necessary information, scheduled everything, and always kept my wife and me informed. The install crew knew exactly what to do, performed professionally and always kept my property clean. Everything went smoothly without any hiccups. We are currently enjoying sun power and my electric bill is close to zero. Kudos to the entire Photon Brothers team.
