Solar and Battery Review – Luke Fortkamp, Whitmore, CA

Long review, so here is a quick synopsis. Professional team, best price in the north state, full service start to end, and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Top Hat install solar at my house earlier this summer (2019). I had several estimates prepared by local solar companies, Top Hat gave me the lowest bid estimate with the best equipment options and warranties.

After selecting Top Hat to install the solar system I started to inquire about financing the system to take advantage of the tax credits offered this year. Again Top Hat connected me with the best solar loan option, I couldn’t find a better one… and I spent way too much time trying to.

Once it came time to start the installation, Top Hat took care of everything. They obtained the required permits and set up my new account with PG&E. I was working out of town at the time and could not be there to oversee the installation. Even so, they spent extra time and effort to make every wire, box, and panel square, tight, and clean. When we encountered a minor issue where I suggested over the phone that they save time by running a conduit on the outside of my house, they went ahead and spent an extra afternoon working in my small attic so I wouldn’t have to look at an additional conduit on the back of the house.

Once the system was up and running they came back out and installed the latest and greatest monitoring system that paired with the new inverter they installed. This would have been a non-issue if they installed the last generation inverter, instead they made sure I had the best system possible.

At every step of the process, every employee at Top Hat treated me like family, all be it much more professionally. They promised the best system at the best price, over delivered, and at the end of it all, they were under their initial estimated bid. Hands down the best contracting experience I’ve had.
