San Diego Solar Inc BBB Business Review
Before going with San Diego Solar, I received quotes from others, including people I knew in the industry. Dirk gave me the best price. But price was just the beginning. He determined exactly how many panels were best for my install by studying past electric bills. He and his crew did a fantastic job timely installing and explaining the system to me. Dirk helped with the rebates and always took time to answer all my questions (and I had a lot). In my experience, Dirk is not only an expert in the field he is also an honest businessman that is great to work with. Thanks to San Diego Solar, I either have no electric bill (summer months) or a very small electric bill. Dirk and his team were great! I have told all my colleagues about him.

Going Big often means going it alone for your warranty.

The big out of town companies come in with big sales goals and lots of install crews. Also big overhead. When the sales go down they disappear, going belly up before the warranty costs start rising.

The big problems arise because those multiple numbers of crews often only have minimal roofing flashing training for some of the guys. The big companies actually have leak teams that have to run around when it rains fixing leaks. We know because they headhunt and steal our guys for the leak teams.

We sleep well when it rains because we have a small number of crews and every guy is trained properly to journeyman levels.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) – the national trade association for the U.S. industry - and its members expressed disappointment in the decision by President Trump to impose 30 percent tariffs on imported solar cells and panels.

The decision effectively will cause the loss of roughly 23,000 American jobs this year, including many in manufacturing, and it will result in the delay or cancellation of billions of dollars in solar investments.

Dirk and his company exceeded all of my expectations. The price was phenomenal, the installation was flawless, and the system operates better that expected. We used to pay between $200-$300 per month on electricity. Our bill is now anywhere from $0-$10. Thanks San Diego Solar.
