I had the one of the best experiences working with Danny (the owner). My wife and I had been kicking around the idea of becoming a “Greener” household, also eliminating our electric bill was a big plus. With 6 people in a house it is not cheap when it comes to PG&E. We had several companies out to look and give us quotes: Tesla, Sun Run, Sun Power and Mirador Energy (We didn’t bother with Vivint after talking to friends and neighbors who had Vivint install or moved into a house with a leased Vivint system. I looked at the install done by them and I gotta say my 10 year old could do a better job. More importantly there customer service sounds horrible). Tesla and Sun Run, I can say anything bad about, pretty decent experiences with both. Mirador Energy was hands down the best, Danny (the Owner) great guy, throughout the estimation process, install, inspections and finalization. I have nothing but good things to say. I will gladly recommend him to everyone and anyone interested in solar. I have to commend Danny on his honesty, attention to detail, communication, scheduling, knowledge and abilities.
The system I had installed on my house is larger than most. Danny did research on the electronic equipment I am looking to install in the future, and put together a system that exceeds my current needs and fulfills my future needs (near future). None of the other companies even listened to the fact that I am dropping almost all my gas appliances for electric one (except my Range). Not only did he listen, he researched and got me all the right numbers to correctly size my system.
Also I looked into his company before I made my decision, as I did with all of them. He is a small company, he has workers comp insurance and all of the things I need to see, but he pays his guys well and they get health care and retirement because he sees the value of a good installer. I gotta say, him and Gabe did a great job. Gabe was onsite solo a day or two and he is well trained and knowledgeable as well.
I know that most people want to know about the price, Mirador Energy was the lowest price. That’s not the tool I use to judge a company, I would have paid more than Tesla’s price, more than Sun Runs price. His attention to detail and customer service is unmatched!
I would give 10 stars if I could.
