Those involved both in sales and installation were highly knowledgeable persons. They have fulfilled our high expectations after their excellent sales presentation. We are very please that during our first month, which was March, our system produced more electricity that we used!

Vernon & betty G.

I'd be happy to recommend to anyone who might be interested.

Robert C.

We are very pleased with our Solar System. Dan, Steve and his crew were excellent. The communication was clear and timely. Everything was well explained and the proposal was completed quickly for our review. The installation crew was very professional and they even took off their shoes when they came into our house. That shows respect and professionalism. The installation was smooth and efficient. It was completed in less than a day whereas the other solar provider that installed solar system on my neighbor's house took four days to complete. The Enphase tracking system is awesome and I have been viewing it every day. It is so amazing that we are using what will be basically free energy. Overall, A+++++ for Solar Universe of Oregon.

Ponce S.

They provide excellent information and perform the work as quoted.

George B.

I am in my first month of solar production and as of today my experience has been excellent , I am hopeful that the future will bring this same level of service.

Thomas M.

Solar Universe does a very good job of seeking the best value for the customer.

Denny G.

The sales and installation team were great. Consistently providing details and information. They were very flexible when scheduling around my travel plans.

John F.

I was impressed with the sales presentation and the salesman Dan Tracy. In particular I was impressed with his honesty. The installation was flawless. Within 2 days the panels were up and producing power. The installers were efficient and friendly and the job site was clean and orderly which is a requirement when working on a floating home moorage. I am thrilled with my new 28 panel array and await the savings.

Maia G.

Dan was absolutely amazing. From day one he was available for questions. Dan knew all the materials, went through the process of installation. Had a good presentation about different solar systems. He was able to answer all my questions about power purchase agreements and how they differed from owning the system outright. Dan was also stellar at keeping me updated on how the process was coming along, from when designs were completed, permits filled, when the install would occur, contacting the power company. Everything. I would highly recommend Solar Universe to my friends interested in solar.

Dane K.

sales,install,customer service was great, I cant wait for the sunshine to come out again in oregon so i can see production, Thank you solar universe team!!!!

Mike B.

Dan Tracy of Solar Universe did an excellent job on this project and exceeded my expectations for the installation. He was very easy to work with and took the time to meet with me in the evenings to accommodate my work schedule. It was only about 6 weeks from initial consultation to solar array on the roof, with most of that time waiting for information and permitting from local utility, county and Hurricane Sandy! Install crew did a great job and the layout for the electrical installation was excellent. Communication throughout the process was very good, most questions were answered with in 12-24 hours via e-mail and phone calls, so I always knew the status of the project. Dan filed all the paperwork for permitting with county and utility so all I needed to do was wait for the updates. I am very excited to have a working solar array on the roof and being accepted into the Feed-In-Tariff program is a big bonus. I would recommend Dan Tracy and Solar Universe for any solar project.

Lance S.

Simple straight-forward process. Worked around my busy travel schedule and still got the job done well in time before the new year.

Peter L.

Our sales rep and installer, Dan Tracy of Premier Energy, Inc., was fantastic! He helped us understand the pros and cons of every possible configuration. He did not push one possibility over another, he just gave us the detailed information we needed to make a decision. We compared Solar Universe with two other major solar companies in the Portland OR area, and Solar Universe was head and shoulders above the others. The actual installation and installation team were also outstanding. We could not be more pleased with our experience with Solar Universe! :)

Stuart S.

Dan Tracy is an honest straight forward person that I would trust to make accurate recommendations.

I'm not one for writing reviews but Solar Universe is one of the best business I had the pleasure of having work on my home . From start to finish they kept me in the loop whether it was getting the permits or receiving the materials I always knew where we were in the process and what to expect. Fast, friendly and excellent work I give them my highest recommendation. If you have a chose, choose SOLAR UNIVERSE.

Stephen M.

I have already recommended Solar Universe to a coworker. The work was started on time and completed early. Follow up to ensure satisfaction was quick and decisive. Communication from the first sales call until final system acceptance was quick, clear and complete.

Wendy A.

Working with Dan and Matt to understand variety of solar choices and completing the install process was a very pleasant experience. Everything was very professional, completed on time, as promised. No surprises in financials discussed. Last 30 days, our system produced ~400KW solar energy. With Oregon tax credit, we expect our break-even point to be < 5 years. It feels good, to help make environment better and yet, save money on long term.

Girish and medha N.

The sales and installation team were very friendly and professional. They went out of their way with customer service. When I had extra questions about how the tax credit applies to my personal tax situation, Dan had his accountant call me and examine my individual tax situation and answer all my questions. The install crew even put some moss killer that I bought at Home Depot on my roof for me while they were up doing the installation. The Enphase tracking system was not originally working with my Mac computer. Dan did some extra trouble shooting to make the tracking system work for us.

Adam and janet S.

Dan Tracy with Solar Universe of Oregon was a pleasure to work with. Competent, timely, well-informed and friendly. Took the time to explain solar system options, optimization and our state's incentive programs. We're very happy with our solar panels!

Corey O.

I love their professional service. They answered any questions we had very quickly and the installation was very fast.

I am completely satisfied with Solar Sun and the work done here. Dan was helpful with all the paperwork, and I am happy to be saving money each month and contributing to more renewable energy.
