Chris Grim recommends Bren Ormsby

VP of Customer Success

Simply put, Bren is the reason that I chose SolarCity to upgrade my home to solar. I first engaged with SolarCity a year ago. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to buy or lease, I had tons of questions and I was looking at multiple solar providers. Bren was patient, answered every question and never upset about my window shopping. I ended up doing nothing. Nine months later, I told Bren I was ready, and I wanted to go with SolarCity and we picked up where we left off. Everything she committed would happen happened exactly as she said, and she was there checking in with me at all hours all the way through the process until I was connected to PG&E and generating my own electricity. I tell everyone that asks to call Bren!

Anthony Hernandez recommends Nathan Riddell

mechanical services supervisor

Nathan called back at a convenient time to explain everything again, since my wife wasn't around during the first call. Nathan made sure that my wife and I had all of our questions answered before we signed anything. I don't have any problems recommending Nathan to my friends and family.

Eileen Collins recommends Randy Helsman


Randy did an awesome job. He was clear and concise and easy to work with. Randy was very knowledgable about Solar power, SolarCity and the ins and outs of everything from the financial aspect to the installation.

Felix Garcia recommends Ulysses Solis


The whole process was very easy and painless thanks to Ulysses. He was very thorough and informative on how everything worked. He took the time to answer all of my questions. I felt very confident in getting my system through SolarCity thanks to him. The installation also went without a hitch. Now my system is up and running and I couldn't be happier!

Walter & Victoria Lyman recommends Kaydi McNaughton

Home Owner

Kaydi was and still is a big help when it came to our decision toward installing solar on our roof. She always followed up on any questions that we had and she always made sure that we were well informed in all aspects of the solar process. She also kept us informed with regard to the happenings with regard to the Nevada PUC and their devastating decision toward raising the fees for Residential Solar Use. I'm hoping that everything will work out for all concerned especially for us as consumers and home owners. We would recommend Kaydi to anyone who would desire the use of Solar. She is an inspiration and an asset not only to us, but to Solar City as well! Thank you Kaydi & God Bless! Walt & Victoria Lyman

Adam Butler recommends Bren Ormsby

Federal Security Specialist

Bren is an awesome consultant for Solar City. She is completely knowledgeable in the product and has answers to the questions we asked. She truly cared about our install and called to provide updates on how things were going as soon as she knew. If we had questions that she didn't know the answer to she said she would find out and get back to me, which was the same day. I fully recommended Bren for a consultant for Solar City. If you want to go solar definitely call Bren she will take care of you and put all your concerns at ease.

Mike Gabriele recommends Kaydi McNaughton

Senior VP

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Kaydi since May of 2013. Kaydi was and continues to be a professional in how she treats a client. Kaydi took the time to explain and provide documentation to dispel any concerns we had regarding Solar Energy. We are Snowbirds, (Canadian) and proudly own a home in Arizona, the fact that all negotiations were done over the phone and on-line, is a testament to Kaydi's ability to make us comfortable enough to trust her & Solar City. We arranged to have our Solar City System installed in March of 2014, again arranging everything over the phone and on-line, and co-ordinating with our neighbours to be available for the Solar City Site Audit and Installation. I was advised by the neighbours that the Solar City Installation Team conducted themselves in a timely and professional manner. We have been up and running now just shy of two years, the system has worked flawlessly and we are pleasantly surprised in our Utility cost saving. Kudos to Kaydi and the Solar City Team.

Edwin H recommends Corey Lehman

Finance- Project Coordinator

I originally decided to go with a different company as they offered a lower price. Corey helped me to see the solar city advantage: 1. Brand recognition- solar city is the #1 residential solar provider. 2. warranty - system is guaranteed to be free from defects over the next 30 years. 3. higher tax benefit- yes, the solar city price was higher, however, I'm able to qualify for a higher tax credit since I have a high tax appetite. Once this was factored, the price difference was approximately $1,000. $1,000 over 30 years (I plan to pay the loan off sooner) made sense over the long run to give me the piece of mind of going with the top company in the field. Corey did a good job of explaining everything and made himself available at odd hours. I appreciate his follow up and attention to detail.

Tanner Johnson recommends Gregory Pane

Chief Operations Officer at Ucraft

Mr. Pane handled all of our needs with solar and was instrumental in our decision making process.

Marsha Ormsby recommends Bren Ormsby


Bren is a wonderful and caring sales consultant and daughter. She is a get things done person and very hard worker. Her father and myself love and respect her very much.

Nick P recommends Stephen De Los Santos

My SolarCity implementation couldn't have been any smoother/simpler, and I believe that Stephen was one of the prime reasons for our success. He helped me understand the requirements and process, then did a great job keeping the process moving and keeping me apprised. I've referred several friends and family members to Stephen since then - and have been generating plenty of clean electricity in the meantime!

Forrest P Graham recommends Vanessa Lopez

Assistant Store Manager

February 9, 2016

To whom it may concern:

It is my distinct pleasure to recommend Vanessa Lopez, of the SolarCity Co, to you. Working with Vanessa the last few years has been an absolute pleasure as she embodies the perfect blend of professionalism and passion for her work. Vanessa’s personality and HUGE smile make her easily approachable and her communication skills are second to none. My company would actively seek Vanessa’s presence on a weekly basis because we knew she would drive results, engage customers and associates, and bring creative thinking to our events. I will certainly miss Vanessa’s presence in our store but her talents should extend her career far beyond the in-store level.

William and Judith Mann recommends Bren Ormsby


Bren was very upfront with all the information she gave us. If we had questions, we just called and she answered them immediately. even several months after our system was installed, she always returned calls, and continued to explain what we needed to do, how the system worked and how the billing was handled. She referred us to the appropriate person if she didn't have the answer to our questions.

The best customer service we have received anywhere.

James Doucette recommends Bren Ormsby

Bren was knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the process. Her understanding of every strep of the installation ensured a stress-free conversion. Bren was always quick to respond to questions, and when I did need to contact the service department over a post implementation issue, Bren was aware of the service call and took the initiative to follow up and make sure the issue was resolved to my satisfaction. I was a great pleasure working with Bren.
