    Found Sunlight through Homeadvisor. Have old solar hot water system that needed old pipes replaced. I did not think system was salvageable, and was going to cost thousands for new system. Sunlight came out and repaired old hot water solar system, and reset pump from water heater to solar collector. Did not need to buy new system. Very reasonable and professional, they new what they were doing and I appreciate their honesty. Now looking to redo pool solar and possibly add solar panels in the future and will use then. Highly recommend Sunlight Solar. Richard M

    We had Sunlight Solar install a solar system in 2016 with a SolarEdge inverter system. From day 1, we had problems. The system looked good on the surface, so when they said it was the Electric company messing with the meter, I went after the electric company (filed a Consumer Complaint with Utilities Commission). They changed the meter. Same problem. Then Sunlight Solar blamed SolarEdge equipment. Long story short, SolarEdge replaced the inverter. SolarEdge replaced the failed optimizers, which Sunlight charged me nearly $240 a PIECE for labor.... 5x after the labor warranty ran out. Charged me $340 to replace the Inverter, also labor only. SolarEdge charged me to replace a panel that blew off in a storm. FINALLY, SolarEdge (manufacturer) themselves sent a tech out, because the sheer number of failures made no sense. Turns out Sunlight Solar replaced the WRONG Optimizers several times, screwed up the wiring itself, did NOT secure all the panels to my roof properly, and basically messed up the install, then messed the entire system up worse each time they charged for a service call (which was every few months, if you called weekly, since they never fully fixed any of the issues, always leaving at least 1 unfixed). SolarEdge (the manufacturer) fixed the equipment, and in 2021, it's finally working flawlessly. However, SolarEdge said that the panels are still not properly secured to my roof by Sunlight Solar, so a storm can blow those panels off (BROKEN attachments were used, roof attachments don't break themselves), and the wiring was tied together so tightly that any movement could tear optimizers off or create power problems, among other issues (putting in a clamp box from the wall to the Inverter, that had NOTHING IN IT, no wires at all). I emailed Sunlight Solar. I called Sunlight Solar. I got a 'owner will get back to you, he's out of town'. Now, I'm pursuing other options. Sunlight Solar are very nice and seemingly sincere people. They are very convincing. It's everyone's fault but their own. They are doing the best job they can. They will come to your house, when they finally schedule you a month or 2 later because they are always waiting months for parts that turns out SolarEdge sent out in a day, and spend HOURS waiting for the 'tech support' at the manufacturers to call them back for a reset (something the manufacturer said was unnecessary, but how would you know that?), proving to you that it's the manufacturer's fault. After they take your money for install, be prepared to pay and pay and pay some more for all the parts that they did not correctly install in the first place, or the panels getting blown off your roof, while blaming the equipment manufacture. Solar is EXPENSIVE, and I absolutely would do it again. But not with Sunlight Solar. Be warned.

    Response from Company:

    1-We installed your equipment in 2016, which was completed and passed all inspections and working perfectly, as shown in the photos sent. 2-In September 2017 one of the panels was blown off with the force of the IRMA hurricane, we reinstalled it, nothing else was damaged and the System continues to operate normally. 4- On 04/01/2019 we detected through our MONITORING SYSTEM, that an optimizer was not working, we went to your home and did the tests together with Technical Support from SolarEdge which confirmed the need for CASE replacement # 1264037. On 01/23/2019 We received the optimizer and replaced it, CASE # 1264037 Closed. 5- On 05/14/2020 we detected another optimizer that was not working, we did the tests with SolarEdge's Technical Support and received the guidance to replace the optimizer, Case # 1845249. On 05/26/20 We received the optimizer and made the switch, Case # 1845249 closed. 6- 3- On 05/29/2019 We were called to check the System, which was not working, we called the technical department of solar edge, which instructed us to do a reset of the INVERTER, after the reset the Inverter will work again normal. 7-On 07-21 / 2020 SolarEdge sent the optimizer to be exchanged Case # 1939344 closed. 7- On 09/28/2020 The Inverter stopped working a new Case # 2042366 was opened with SolarEdge. On 10/04/2020 Solar edge informed us that it sent a new Inverter. On 10/19/2020 The inverter was replaced CASE # 2042366 closed. 8- On 11/23/2020 another optimizer to be replaced, CASE # 21272778 The explanation we have it's very simple Ms. StarKweather, WE ARE NOT A MANUFACTURER OF THESE PRODUCTS, we are INSTALLERS. All electrical, electronic, or mechanical equipment is subject to failure, this is a natural cause, which can occur due to multiple factors. ALL OPTMIZERS AND INVERTERS THAT HAVE BEEN SENT TO REPLACE THOSE WHO HAVE DEFECTIVES HAVE NOT BEEN CHARGED BY THE MANUFACTURER (SOLAR EDGE). Sunlight only charged Labor, (BECAUSE WE DO NOT WORK FOR FREE). As for the? Inspection done by a Technician at SolarEdge at his request, he was very unfortunate, in his comments. We saw that some attachments came loose, and others were broken. We do not know the real cause that led to this, but we are sure that since the installation where (WE PASSED IN THE ELECTRICAL AND STRUCTURAL INSPECTION, NOTHING WAS FOUND BY THE INSPECTORS THAT COMMITTED THE EQUIPMENT. During this period, the System went through many storms and even Hurricane (IRMA), where a panel came loose and was reinstalled and no damage was found to the integrity of the roof or panels. As for the conduit that you said there is no thread, it is another big mistake on the interpretation of the SolarEdge technician. If there was no wire in this conduit mentioned and shown in the photo, YOUR INVERTER WOULD NOT WORK, BECAUSE THIS CONDUIT TAKES ENERGY FROM YOUR HOME'S BREAKER TO THE INVERTER. IF THERE WERE NO WIRES IN THIS CONDUIT THE INVERTER WOULD NOT BE WORKING, (I UNDERSTAND). ANOTHER NOTE, ALL OPTMIZERS ARE TESTED BEFORE BEING CHANGED AND WITH A SERIAL # THAT IDENTIFIES EACH OF THEM. THEREFORE, THERE WERE NO OPTIMIZERS CHANGED INCORRECTLY. As for the rest of your comment about our company, it cannot be taken seriously. Thank you, Sunlight Solar Team.
