Samuel continues to amaze me with his knowledge, dedication and passion as an field energy consultant for Solar City. I had a bad experience with another solar company and he was able to educate me on the Solar City way that convinced me to "go solar" with confidence.

Nate Richards recommends Kristin Schue

Passionate about making a difference

My wife and I whole heartedly enjoyed the journey of going solar with Kristin. She is an very passionate and driven individual who easily won our trust through her transparency and personal approach. We felt that we were all on the journey together and that she was genuinely vested in the process and excited for us; which goes beyond focusing on closing The deal. Kristin worked with us to explore literally every option until we were satisfied. We would without reservation recommend Kristin and solar city. Thank you Kristin for making all of the difference.

Anthony Liquore recommends Michael P. Frawley

Home Owner

Mike was very friendly from the beginning and never took a "sales" approach. Mike was able to clearly explain all my solar options and answer all my questions. Mike was easy to reach and always got back to me with the information I was looking for. Mike even showed up at the house on the day of the install to monitor the progress. The install team did an excellent job and made sure I was happy with their work from start to finish. The end result is a great looking solar energy system that will help the environment and save money simultaneously. I would highly recommend Mike Frawley and his team at Solar City for solar energy.

Karen Pedone recommends Mark Tanner


As much as I consider myself "green," I had not considered getting solar panels until my cousin did and enthused about Solar City's promotion. In fact, I did not want to cover my expensive, lovely green, 2-year-old roof with solar panels! But, Mark gently and patiently convinced me of the benefits -- no hard sell. So my conscience won!

Eddie and Rhea Idolyantes recommends John Porto

Software Engineer

This email is to relate our experience with John Porto presenting solar city various solar power system for our home and to express our concern that the solar city agreement that we are to sign will not be credited to John Porto.

John Porto came to our home on February 28 to present the various solar power systems that solar city has to offer. John did a fantastic job on the presentation as well as answering all of our questions during his presentation. From the beginning John diligently worked to give us a truly great experience explaining how solar city systems work and at the end we have decided to go with solar city after countless other solar companies presented their solar systems. I have also recommended my friends to John who are also in the process of installing their solar system.

Best Regards,
Eddie and Rhea Idolyantes

Jennifer Williams recommends Thomas Tran


I am in the initial stages of the Solar City program and I have been working with Thomas Tran. He has been very knowledgeable and professional. Thomas has taken the time to explain the program, offer options, answer questions and remain patient as I try to learn and understand the program. I have asked him to review and explain things more than once and yet he has never become frustrated. He has clearly been able to walk me through the process with no pressure, yet giving me a comfort level so that if in the end I choose not to go with the program, there will be no problem and if I do decide to go with it that is great as well. I am waiting for the next step in the process and I am confident that if I have more questions or need more information about the program, contacting Thomas will get the issues resolved.

David La Voy recommends Wayne Brechtel

Wayne Brechtel did a superb job in enlisting us as customers of Solar City. He responded promptly to our interest, which had originally been spurned by the people at the Solar City toll-free number. He came to our house with his computer, evaluated the site and presented us with our alternatives--all without an ounce of pressure. Then, once we made the commitment, he shepherded us through the process and was available at all times to answer any question. (That process, by the way, was smooth as silk. Everything went as promised.) Two years in, we are completely satisfied customers.
