I had a positive experience with Ambient Solar. I researched 3 companies, (had 3 sit down visits) and I got the best interest rate on a 20 year loan from a Ambient verses a higher rate at 25 years from the 2 others. The install was quick and professional. Net metering was discussed at length meaning the need to build up credits for the summer. My bill has been the minimum hook up charge from NVE even with the 115 heat we had in June. I'd recommend speaking with Ambient if you are interested in solar.
I have gone through 4 inverters. System always goes down in the dead of summer when the sun is at its peak. I’ve tried getting the system removed because it’s a complete LEMON, but you can’t unless you pay the whole thing off. Not worth the risk to pay over $25k for something that might work but might not for months at a time. It has been a nightmare. I think, in total, my system has been out of service for about 5 months. I don’t recommend solar AT ALL. It’s a scam. I don’t even save money. It actually costs me more to have the system.
These people go around our neighborhood offering solar power and promising so many add one just so you will get your solar power with them and after it is installed they leave you and they don’t fulfill any of their offers. I was offered by their representative that I will get free “ one year pre paid” solar bill, but after my solar panels were installed they are no where to be found. Please beware of these people TANG DOH and DANNY ADAMSON!! I apologized .. but the story they told you is not true. I did not go to another company. Another company quoted me and I showed it to Tang and he onicked and lowered his price.
Ambient solar is the best around. Their staff is incredibly knowledgeable. Their installers are polite, efficient and we had our solar up and running in no time for a great deal too. The sales process was easy too. Do yourself a favor and get your solar installed from Ambient.
Worst experience ever. I live in an off grid area. They promised a solar system with battery backup that would last 3 days without sunlight or using my generator. Well 3 weeks in I can't make it through the night without running my generator or loosing power. I have called to complain several times. A year and a half later I can't get them to answer a phone call. Update: Since posting we have had contact with Ambient and they are working to replace our batteries and correct our system. We're anticipating having our system working correctly very soon. This has been a major improvement over our previous experience. Will update once complete.
