Ameco Solar is the best solar company in the business. They have been around since 1974! Go ask any other solar company how long they have been around. If your roof starts to leak 20 years from now, do you think the company that has been around for the past five years will be around? So that is one reason to go with them.
Ameco Solar is also the most knowledgeable company around. When I interviewed other solar companies I was greeted by a salesman who knew less about solar power than I did. I have done my research and Ameco knew more than I did which was a good sign.
Ameco also had several options for me and they did a price comparison for me with all of the features of each one. They didn’t pressure me into the highest price option. They were patient with me when I took a couple of months to think it over and obtain bids from other places.
I’ve had my system for the past three years and the experience with Ameco has been excellent! They were professional, thorough, and they knew what they were doing. I stopped the river of money going to SCE and I highly recommend that you do the same by having Ameco install a solar system on your house. FYI…I am not a friend or relative of someone who works at Ameco and they did not pay me to give such a glowing review. They actually earned it.

They system is currently at 3400 kilowatt surplus . . . my bill is in the negative and I will probably never have an electric bill again. I checked Better Business ratings and how long they have been in business, and AMECO came up at the top. Solar is the future, you will always have the sun and electricity is just going to get more expensive. As the price goes up, that much more you save.

We have been very pleased with every aspect of our experience with your company. Todd was very patient in answering all of our questions and able to explain a few things about solar that we didn’t understand. He was not a typical “salesman” by any means — we were never pressured and we really appreciate that. Your installation team was good. Polite and easy to work with. Overall, we are happy with AMECO and would recommend you highly.

My electric for the first 6 months this year was $2.56 per month. Pat not only knows the trade, he’s a representative of a board that testifies in Sacramento on behalf of the solar industry. He knows solar from the ground up, he knows the technology and he’s always up on the latest, state-of-the-art stuff.

AMECO installed a second PV system on our roof. The first system which we also bought from them was installed in 2003. I originally selected this contractor due to the knowledge he displayed about the products and the installation process. Both systems are functioning perfectly.
My experience with this contractor has always been excellent. They are punctual, do excellent high quality work and are instantly responsive to any requests for follow-up. The owner of the company is well known and highly respected in the industry. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any PV or solar hot water heating system work. They did not install our original solar hot water heating system but have replaced our original collectors which finally failed after 30 years of service. My experience with AMECO on our solar hot water system met the same high standard I experienced with them on our PV system installations. An EXCELLENT contractor!

We’ve saved on average about $100 a month…so I have good statistics and have saved a lot of money. A friend who lives in Torrance, he said “Don’t even get estimates from anyone, the best one is AMECO.” The crew is their crew, they are very professional and work hard. They’ve been in business since 1974, I would challenge you to find another solar business that’s been in business that long.

Dealing with AMECO Solar was easy and pleasant. They offered a variety of financing options, including a prepaid lease that combined the best features of lease and purchase. They worked with us to improve aesthetics while still meeting local code requirements. Prepaid lease amount reflected expected rebates and incentives.

Our 30 panel SunPower system has been online for 9 months now and it’s even better than what we expected. We have bills that people can’t believe, about $1.65 a month. Most of the time, we are storing additional electricity that can be used later down the line within the year. The people at AMECO were really easy to work with, no pressure sales…it really was a no brainer.

Excellent job all around. Pat and David in the main office are experts, and very professional. Todd spec’ed the system, and came in with a price that even beat 1 Block Off The Grid. The installation team, led by Pritesh, did a great job, and cleaned up every day. Very nice guys. Everyone there was friendly, helpful, and professional. If you are in their service area, you are lucky! AMECO is the company to pick for solar installations. No need to hunt or get multiple bids. They work well with email and are usually good about getting back to you right away. Compared to other contractors we’ve worked with, they are very communicative and easy to work with. They react well to changes and are flexible with scheduling. Solar is absolutely the way to go (our last electric bill was $1.69, versus the usual $250). AMECO is absolutely the company to call.

AMECO Solar was clearly above the rest for several of reasons. Pat knew the business, he gave me a lot of details about the background, the pros and cons of different manufacturers of the solar panels…and how to analyze cost effectiveness. This was something that none of the other representatives from the other businesses did to my satisfaction. They did not have the depth or breadth of knowledge of solar photovoltaic systems that Pat did.

My installation was just completed about 4 weeks ago. Everything was awesome. The planning and attention to detail was beyond my expectations. The installation was perfect – not even visible unless you’re on the roof! I’m generating enough power to supply 100% of my needs at this moment (although the heat of summer is coming – but also the cool of winter!). Thanks to the wise counsel of Pat and Dave I bought enough panels to max out the inverters so my system is 14 KW. I`d interviewed some other companies and was totally turned off by the high pressure sales techniques. Ameco was straight-forward and seemed to really understand the entire system, my needs and the industry much better than anyone else. I would HIGHLY recommend.

We could not have asked for a more professional & knowledgeable contractor. In addition, the personnel were available to answer follow up questions in a timely manner even AFTER the job was completed and paid for. It is rare that we have had such a positive experience with any contractor. We would highly recommend them to anyone seeking solar panels.
This company made the permit/rebate process painless & helped us every step of the way to minimize the time we needed to spend on these things. It actually involved much less of our time than we had initially anticipated (given the time we had spent on prior house improvement projects that involved permits.)

From bid to after installation went smoothly and with no surprises. We got quotes from several companies and through the bid/quote process, they were the most informational and focused on meeting MY needs & wants. I never felt pressure for upsells and they managed my expectations well. They were responsive to my questions and gave me options to get me comfortable with the investment. I did not go with the most expensive options, on their advice, to get the best value and return.
They worked with me closely to plan panel placement to get the most out of a system for placement and to help me achieve my aesthetic wants as well, educating me on trade-off impacts so I was comfortable with my decisions. All these things together made me feel comfortable and confident going into a technology I needed help navigating and learning about. Installation went smoothly and as expected. David, the ops manager, worked with me to manage my expectations of installation length and scheduling. He communicated early and just the right amount of frequency so I felt like they were on the ball throughout the process.
Teams showed up on time and completed the work with no surprises despite my tricky shapes roof. Little things I didn’t think to ask about were done like painting the pipes holding the wires & supports of the panels to match my roof color.
I was very pleased with my decision to use Ameco and would recommend them to others.

At least two times if not three times a day, I’m out watching the meter run backwards, which makes me extremely happy. Also, I’m getting about 50 kilowatts a day, which is more than I use. When the AMECO person came out, they were very honest and they gave me what the cost was, they knew the product, they knew about solar energy and I felt very comfortable.

I have been working with them for about twelve years. They have installed two PV systems, a swimming pool system, and three hot water systems.
They are absolutely first class. They are the best! They are very professional. They are highly respected all over the state. The owner keeps up with everything and integrity is their number one commodity.

I’ve been an Ameco customer for 6 years and they’ve installed two different residential systems for me. In each case they were among 3 or more contractors bidding and both times they were low bidder. Their work was completed on schedule and without any extra charges even though in both cases I requested panel and wiring lay-out changes during installation.
My first system (6 kW) was installed in 2005 and it has performed as promised. Same for a 7 kW system installed in 2007. Both systems required roof penetrations and no leaks have since been encountered. The only issues I’ve had are related to repairs required to my inverters. In both of these cases, Ameco quickly repaired them under warranty and without charge. They have also returned to each of my systems to perform recall related upgrades on three of my four inverters. These upgrades were performed without interruption or inconvenience.
In my experience, Ameco’s staff are exceptional. They are extremely knowledgeable and considerate. They are genuinely interested in customer satisfaction and the long-term success of the systems they install. My advice: don’t install a solar system without consulting them first; you’ll be glad you did.

We started looking around, we went to a few other companies and it just seemed like they were trying to get on the bandwagon to do solar. So, when we found Pat with AMECO, he had been in the business for years and had a lot of experience. I also found out that he was connected with the lobbyists and he was doing a bunch of the negotiations for solar…and that impressed me.
