    do a google search on them. also search Yelp, angies list, and look on the BBB website. these are things you can do yourself while you wait for someone to respond. Of course there may not be anyone with experience with them. They have some google reviews. I am a member of angies list but not for new york.

    I ended up getting them over to propose a 5-6kW system, which, based on my usage, was already overkill. With the programs shifting around like crazy, the offer they made still came in to me as not worth it, so I have decided not to do solar quite yet. Outside of that, they are on the ball getting the sales guy out there to talk up a good game. The other negative is they will not create a micro-inverter system for you because that is what I'd prefer, with bigger panels which were US made.... so the way they sell solar, like the rest of the bigger shops, is based on usage and as a commodity. It's not longer any fun in doing a custom configuration, let alone doing it the way YOU want it. My $.02 and an answer to my own original question.

    From an installers and sales point of view the "prepackaged" systems are much easier to deal with. There really is not much thought process involved.
    I know what a PITA it is to custom configure every system to the customers needs and goals. But is something that has to be done each time.
    I haven't yet seen a solution that works in all cases.

    I have used Trinity Solar and so have about 35 residents in my community. As a former electrical contractor myself I can tell you they great. Very professional, did a great job and everybody you have to deal with in the whole company are very helpfull. BTY those guys in those little green truck are Solar City. They have a very aggresive sales pitch, have many complaints against them with the BBB and have done very little jobs in NJ. From what I understand they have only been in NJ for less then a year. Like I said in a previous post those "little green truck" don't seem to hold much equipment and theur crews look like they just came out of high school. Is this the type of company you would want to use? Besides Trinity has done more jobs in NJ then any other solar company. Highly recommend them. Good luck.

    I have Trinity Solar and LOVE THEM! No issues at all with the system and it's making more power than Trinity estimated. My JCP&L bills have been "zeroed out" for months.

    That's great news. Sounds like you did your homework. My system has been up 18 months and last year I did about 19% more then they estimated. This year I am on track for about the same or slightly higher. Very happy about the zero bills, except PSE&G still charges you $ 2.44 "service charge". Go figure. I still make out after the True-Up.

    Only thing about SunRun's web site is that it wasn't very accurate but the new site has gotten better. I made my own Excel spreadsheets that keeps track of my daily and monthly production. If you are interested in any help just PM me.

    I have an intrest is using trinity solar. I am a new homeowner and want to get solar but not sure if its worth it yet for me. I have heard commercials for trinity solar about installing the system for free but it sounds to good to be true. I'm just trying to get an idea what to expect when I call them.
    Any info would be cool
    Thank you
