A1A Solar Contracting, Inc.

In the interest of becoming the premier solar installer in the Southeast, I'm proud to have earned NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) certification in both Photovoltaic/PV and Solar Thermal (hot water). NABCEP certification is widely recognized in the solar industry as the "gold standard" for renewable energy installers. When you hire a NABCEP Certified Installer, you can be confident that you are getting the job done by a solar professional who has proven expertise by passing a rigorous exam coupled with extensive on-the-job experience. We love solar, and solar is all we do. We also love happy customers because they bring us more business. At A1A Solar, we're not happy until you're happy. That's just how we do business.

We got installed at the end of 2015, and couldn't be happier with our investment. My husband and I are retired, and saving $200 per month for years to come sounded almost too good to be true, but that's what we do! Sean was patient and walked us through the whole process of paperwork and financing and explained everything real well. They also pay you to have a solar party, and we are going to do one soon. Great company.
Response by A1A Solar Contracting, Inc.: Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, we appreciate it and we're so glad to hear that you had a positive experience! Let us know when you're ready to have that solar party ;)

Promises made but never realized. Posted over one year after install... Summary of my Experience You will never get a check from JEA or the power company. The government will not pay you the 30% tax refund credit all in the same year. In fact, it will take me three years to get back the $13,000. So the first year I was surprised with a $10,000 expense when they assured me I would have no "out-of-pocket" expenses. It will not produce as much energy as they tell you it will. Mine produces about 7,000 KWHs less than what they sold me. Message me and I can send the data. The Monthly Payment will NOT leave you with a zero energy bill. $65,000 for solar ($10,000 out of pocket), monthly bill is $226, it may cover about half the cost with my new bill being about $150 a month vs. $300 without solar. ...Not to mention the extra expense when I need to replace my roof. Roof leaked after install, stain is still there on my ceiling. If the Power Company goes out, so do you...no matter how sunny it is, the energy goes directly to the power company and not to your house. You will have three large, ugly energy boxes installed on the outside of your home with galvanized piping running down to each one, They replaced a one year old, 80 Gallon water heater with a 45 gallon and said it would work the same...BIG LIE. We now run out of hot water a lot. The way it was designed and presented to my HOA for approval, is not the way it was installed. In fact, two panels sit behind my chimney and are in the shade much of the time. They do not monitor your energy production or inform you if you are having issues. I gave it over one year to write a review to give the owner, Pete Wilking the benefit of the doubt. I refused to sign the final agreement but Pete gave me $6,000 and assured me it would produce an average of about 1,600 KHRs per month. The sales guy told me 1,900 and reality is it produces a monthly average of about 1,200. When Pete tries to tell you the value of the solar, he becomes a fortune teller and predicts the future costs of energy. However, energy costs have been going down, not up. I like the idea of cleaner energy and I am sure there may be companies that do it honestly but it is NOT Pete Wilking and NOT A1A Solar.
Response by A1A Solar Contracting, Inc.: Hi, thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, as the owner of the company, Pete Wilking, discussed with you and explained to you, you were misled during the sales process. As you are aware, the person who sold you your system was fired from A1A Solar immediately upon our discovering that he was not following protocol and was not using ethical business practices. We regret that we did not discover his actions sooner. Unfortunately, your PV system was already fully installed when the situation came to light, therefore our options were very limited. Pete Wilking regards integrity and customer satisfaction as his highest priorities, which is why he felt obligated to recompense you in cash for part of the cost of the system. When you accepted the refund, you agreed that A1A Solar did their very best to make good on promises made, despite those promises being unauthorized and incorrect. Your system is sized to produce a specific amount of kWh, if the production is low, please be sure to make sure there are no new shading issues or heavy pollen/debris build up on the panels.

The project was completed (designed and installed) professionally in a short amount of time. They took care of all the permits and paperwork, including the HOA, electric company, and city approvals. They even helped arrange the financing.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
