Comment: Very professional solar sales/installation!!!From start to completion, sales to install, Gold Rush was informative and responsive. They took care of all communication with the HOA, county and PG&E. They did all the legwork regarding permits, scheduling the inspection, etc. Gold Rush made the whole process seamless.I had a request as to the way the panel array looked and they were able to accommodate my concern about the aesthetics. And the job was completed in half a day!

Comment: Let me start by saying that jumping into a solar project felt like a significant undertaking. Based on past hiccups in other projects, my list of specifications and concerns was pretty lengthy. The whole idea of integrating solar panels, adding an EV charger, ensuring the right inverter was used, setting up the battery backup system, and yes, even managing a roof installation, made me wary of the whole process. I mean, that’s a lot of moving parts, and I wasn’t sure how it would all come together without some kind of glitch.Enter Gold Rush Energy Solutions.Right from the start, their approach to customer interaction was different. They didn’t simply nod and provide generic responses to my concerns. They took the time to deeply understand each facet of what I wanted. They acknowledged the complexity of combining a roof installation with the solar setup and reassured me of their expertise in handling such tasks.I was particularly impressed by how they tackled the roof installation. They recognized the critical nature of getting this aspect right, not just for the sake of the solar installation, but for the overall integrity and safety of my home. Their team showcased a seamless blend of expertise, ensuring that the roof was installed to perfection and ready to support the new solar components.The meticulous attention to detail was evident at every stage. Whether it was picking the right components, positioning them optimally on the newly installed roof, or ensuring that all systems communicated effectively, Gold Rush Energy Solutions demonstrated a commitment to excellence.Throughout the journey, there was one constant – their unwavering focus on customer satisfaction. It wasn’t just about getting the job done; it was about ensuring I was comfortable, informed, and content every step of the way.In wrapping up, I can honestly say that Gold Rush Energy Solutions turned what I anticipated to be a nerve-wracking process into something streamlined and even enjoyable. They delivered beyond what I hoped for, and if you’re in the market for a solar project, especially one with additional complexities like a roof installation, I can’t recommend them enough. The peace of mind they provided was worth its weight in gold.

Comment: If youre worried that youll need a roof replacement first in order to do solar dont worry Gold Rush can bundle it together. We were very impressed with the roof replacement we got from them just prior to getting the solar system installed by them. I was pleased with the GAF shingles they used, the attic venting they added, and the new flashing they used everywhere. They dont cut corners and their roofing crew is very knowledgable. Im super glad we went with Gold Rush and looking forward to years of utility cost savings.

They have provided prompt support after installation.The workers overall keep the worksite clean during the project.They handled all the paperwork with PG&E.Negatives:We did encounter a few communication challenges along the way including coordinating with Gold Rush and the County Building Inspector.Overall, working with them was a positive experience.

Comment: The overall installation process and permit went smooth. I found out some of the panel were not working properly. So i asked them to check it out. They checked and said 2 panels are not working to their full capacity and they would place an replacement order and fix it with in a few weeks. Its been almost more than 2 months and no follow up calls from them. I called them 3 times every time i get the same response, we are waiting for the company to process. I came across all the good reviews the company had and chose to go with them to have a better experience but this is something i never expected.[Update] They contacted me and resolved the issue after the 2 months wait period from the manufacturers response. The company also moved my panels around and the production is back to normal as expected. I hope this is just a miscommunication between the manufacturer and Gold Rush Energy. Apart from this issue they were responsive and professional with their whole installation process as I mentioned in my earlier review

Comment: I’m in the process of getting solar panels installed and Ben has been an ideal representative. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to solar and really helpful in determining the best system for one’s home. While hoping the installation and permits happen smoothly, I’d definitely recommended Ben and Gold Rush to everyone out there looking to switch to solar.

Comment: Three years ago GRES installed solar panels on our home. Brett Neumann was our energy consultant. Over the years I have reached out to Brett with questions about PG&E bills, solar production and more. He always gets back to me and is a wealth of knowledge. Last week I sent him a picture of a tile that cracked by one of the panels. It had been repaired during solar install but the repair had failed. That day Brett arranged one of their roof guys to come out. He showed up the next day to replace the tile. I had mentioned a leak that I thought might have been due to broken tile. He found the source of that leak (didn’t have to do with solar install) and fixed that and a couple other tiles. Thanks Brett and the GRES team! You guys rock

Comment: Super happy with our solar system installed by Gold Rush and their attention to detail in making it work perfectly. Immediately after the system install, we experienced a malfunction in our kitchen circuits, apparently due to some pre-existing loose wiring unrelated to the solar installation. On follow up inspection, Gold Rush carefully diagnosed the problem and fixed it for us right away at no additional cost to us. Throughout the entire process, we found everyone at Gold Rush to be friendly, helpful, efficient, and proficient.

Comment: We worked with Nick who is a technician. Nick helped restore my faith in this company. He was responsive, followed up, was super polite and helpful! He got our panels back up and working and was just really easy to work with. I work in customer service so this is a trait that I pay close attention too. I hope Nick sticks around cause honestly he’s been the best person to work with with this company! Definitely worth a 5 star review!

Comment: This might be a longer review but I wanted to make sure this company got a great one!After quite a bit of research and time spent speaking with various companies I feel like Gold Rush Energy Solutions was the right choice for me. When I originally contacted Ben Hecht I was really just looking for a PPA assuming it was the right choice for my situation. His was response was very quick and informative, even after texting him at all hours of the day since I was in the middle of working with another solar company at the time. I had cold feet about purchasing since Ive had really bad experiences in the past but Ben walked me through it. Its been about 9 months since choosing to work with Ben and purchasing our solar was a great move for me and the family.Ben was my first contact and after talking with him and exchanging emails, texts and after seeing his plans and what we could save we decided to go for it. We worked with the finance team as well as the permit department and they were fast and responsive, even after having issues with the previous company they helped to make that correction for us. Their surveyor came out and he was on time and very nice, where the previous company that I was working with set an appointment 3 times to do this and they didnt call or show up. The installation team was amazing as well. I arrived home to see two vans and what looked like 2 crews finishing up the install. The lead told me that they had 1 crew in the area wrap up a job earlier than expected so they came over to help finish up on our house, nice wok on their efficiency! They did a great job cleaning up after themselves as well. I dont remember the leads name but he was very respectful, nice and had great customer service.I first talked to Ben in the beginning of December 2021 and after the small permit issues we had the system installed toward the end of January 2022. The solar panels have performed just as well as expected if not better and Ben is always a phone call away. Great job to Gold Rush and the entire staff! I would have given them 10 stars if that was a choice

Comment: Elected to consider Gold Rush Energy because of their amazing reviews. Met with salesperson David Marcil who did a fantastic job to provide us with options and what worked best for us. We required a follow-up regarding the installation and Mr. Tim McCrary was the best in overseeing a solution, which turned out not to be related to their installation. Best Solar Company to consider.

Comment: Gold Rush Energy Solutions has by far shown me the best customer service I have ever seen. I contracted with them for a home solar project on a manufactured home, through a contracted salesperson. Because I have a manufactured home, most solar companies wont even talk to me. After several weeks of planning and effort put out by this company, our project was declined by SMUD for no fault of Gold Rush. My dealings with the contracted salesperson became strained. After a sharp email from the salesperson, both the Chief Business Development Officer and the CEO reached out to me to apologize. Even after extensive investment by Gold Rush into my project and after it was cancelled, they went out of their way to refund my deposit and make sure I was satisfied. Gold Rush LOST MONEY on me, and yet even then they were still concerned with my satisfaction with our interaction. This level of customer concern is unheard of in the business world today. Im inclined to believe you can trust Gold Rush Energy Solutions to act with integrity in all of their dealings across the board.

Comment: My overall experience with Gold Rush Energy has been fabulous. I originally started my solar journey with another vendor, but due to having a metal roof, found my way to Gold Rush. Their expertise with metal roofing was key because other providers do not have the experience to install solar on these types of roofs. The quoting process was easy, the prices fair, and they showed up on time for the installation. The installation crew was fabulous--they had a team of 10 out here and had the installation of the panels completed in less than a day. They had to restack my electrical panel to accommodate the inverter and this was done well, although we did have a minor issue with a breaker later. They sent Timothy McCray back out to the house to address that issue and to fully provision the inverter with new firmware. They also pushed through the PG&E Permission to Operate in almost no time at all. So overall I am very pleased with my experience with Gold Rush. And let me say again that all their guys are GREAT, especially Timothy McCrary!!

Comment: I highly recommend Gold Rush Energy Solutions. My roof was not the easiest to configure but they developed an awesome design that not only looks great but delivers credits every month. Im so impressed with the service as well. They noticed that one of my panels wasnt functioning properly and THEY called ME to schedule a time to come fix the problem. I probably would have never even noticed. They also found an easy fix to make the wiring in my attic more accessible to anybody needing to work up there which I really appreciate. After working with so many contractors who made me feel like they were doing me a favor, I really felt like the staff at Gold Rush listened to me and worked with me throughout the entire process.

I will say Gold Rush was one of few that didnt right away try and sell LG/Panasonic $30k+ system. I would definitely recommend calling gold rush to see if they can meet your solar needs.

Comment: After a disastrous experience with another solar company last spring we were referred to Gold Rush Energy Solutions by our previous sales rep, Jack. We started our whole process Aug. 16, 2020, got our new roof Sept. 14 and solar panels Sept. 21 (delayed due to heat and poor air quality). Were just waiting for PG&E. Everyone has been friendly and professional. The crews came with PPE. Thank you Ryan and his roofing crew, Tom and his solar crew, Jack for helping us find Gold Rush and everyone in the office who helped us with all our silly questions! And thank you for not having your crews work in that miserable heat and AQ. We recommend Gold Rush 100%!

Comment: I fought the idea of getting solar for many year. But once I spoke to Gold Rush Energy(Ben), my doubts were put to rest. The process was simple, everyone from sales, project management and installation were prompt, polite, respectful and the overall experience couldnt have been better. I ended up with a complete solar and battery backup setup that I couldnt be happier with. I spoke and listened to 5 or 6 different vendors, but Gold Rush being a local business and their honesty provided to me the package and support I needed.

Comment: We were introduced to Emily Neumann through our sister-in-law who had Emily and her company, Gold Rush Energy Solutions, install solar panels in her home in 2019.We hit it off right away with Emily when she visited us in the middle of 2019. She was clear and concise in her explanations and came across as convincing and trustworthy. We decided to go with her for our move to solar energy.She was assiduous in getting us not only a great loan rate but also in finding us the right roofer to handle our custom roof tiles that needed a lot of TLC!Her team showed up on time every day during the panel installation process. Her supervision coupled with the efficiency of her team made the whole process painless.She also made sure that we were up and operational before the end of the year in order to avail of the 30% Federal tax credit for going solar!We were out of town the day one of her team members came home and flipped the switch that activated the solar panels and we have been enjoying the resultant benefits since!We are very, very impressed not only with her professionalism but also with her constant follow-up emails and texts. We are very pleased that she is keeping an eye on our system! So much so that one of her solar panel experts came out last month to work on a panel that was not working properly, something she noticed as a result of her monitoring of our system.We wholeheartedly recommend Emily Neumann and Gold Rush Solutions for anyone who is desirous of moving to solar energy! They are like a one-stop shop in that they even arrange the financing for you should you need it!Thank you, Emily!!

Comment: 5 STARS - EXCELLENT Solar company!!! - Gold Rush Energy installed my solar system last year and they exceeded all my expectations from my initial call requesting information to turning the system on with PGE grid. Ben Hecht (sales representative) is very knowledgeable about the various products, warranties and installation process. I am one of those customers that over analyzes everything and ask a million questions (especially for such a major investment as this) and Ben/Gold Rush Energy was always responsive and I never felt “sales pressure”. I compared various vendors and, based on all my research/vetting, I did not hesitate to use Gold Rush Energy to install my solar. It was a textbook “turnkey” operation where they took care of all the paperwork, scheduling and coordination with my HOA, PGE and inspectors. I highly recommend anyone who is thinking of installing solar to contact Ben Hecht/Gold Rush Energy for a competitive quote and/or a proposal for your specific home/needs – you will be happy you did.

Comment: We truly cannot say enough about the wonderful service we received from Victor Falls (our Gold Rush Energy solar rep) and the entire Gold Rush Energy team. We had a very large solar project as we are a commercial winery out in the Pleasant Valley area of Placerville and Gold Rush Energy stood up to the task and handled the entire process smoothly and with zero complications-from mapping out the best spot on our property to place the panels, to being there during the final PG&E inspection. We are so excited and proud to now be a solar operated winery! I highly recommend them for any kind of solar project, whether its for a business or a residence. You wont be disappointed!

Comment: Gold Rush Energy Solutions are the best. There installers were on time to my house every day while they were putting the solar panels on my roof. They made sure that any questions I had were answered completely. Before the process even started I had a complete understanding of what would happen during the install. The install took one more day than planned because it rained and it was not safe for them to be on my roof. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants to have a quality install of solar panels.

Comment: I was very impressed with Gold Rush Energy Solutions. The ratings were excellent, and they lived up to them. Met Jasmine at a car show and explained we had been turned down by Tesla due to a tile roof the day of installation. She took photos of our tile roof, reviewed our electric bill, developed a plan explained our options, and was able to answer all the questions or concerns that we had. I was concerned the project would take forever but this was not the case. Installation was completed 46 days from first contact and 28 days from offer acceptance. Katie kept me updated with the installation schedule and any questions that came up were quickly answered. The install was seamless and completed in 1 day. The installers were very professional and polite. If you’re looking for solar installer and thinking of a project that is out of the norm, these are the people to deal with. I would highly recommend this company.

Comment: I was very impressed with this company. I checked around prior to choosing a solar co. The ratings were excellent and Gold Rush Energy lived up to my expectations. From the beginning Benjamin came out and reviewed our electric bill and walked us through all the options and was able to answer any questions or concerns that we may of had.The install was seamless. I wanted a local company and was concerned once I signed the contract the project would take forever but this was not the case with this company. I was updated constantly and any questions that came up were quickly responded to. Emily called me personally and made sure I was aware of all the updates and timelines.The field installers, Sabastion and Edward were very knowledgeable and accommodating. I wanted to add a 22kw whole house generator to the project and Gold Rush installed that for me also. Everyone that I talked to was professional and polite. (sorry I dont remember everyones name but you were all great to work with!!)I am now generating power and have a generator to back our house in case of power outages.The system was a real clean install. I would highly recommend this company. and I tell everyone that may be thinking of installing solar to go with them you wont be sorry. THANKS GOLD RUSH ENERGY SOLUTIONS. Ill let everyone know.

Comment: This is a long review, hopefully worth you taking the time to read.Weve been working on getting solar on our property for 4 years now! It has been a very long journey for us, for most it should not be this long but we had some interesting challenges.When I started the process we had three different meters on our property, one of them is 3-phase. We are now down to 2 meters, but having multiple meters added to the complexity. We also had wanted to put the solar panels on the roof of a barn structure we have, but unfortunately the building was not permitted properly by the previous owners. We also have a lot of tall Ponderosa Pine trees on the property that created a ton of shade issues.Add to these issues the fact that we use a lot of power, so we were talking about installing a large, 60 panel residential system. All of these factors, and some others, made it very difficult to deal with many other solar companies. Some didnt even want to talk to us. We got into contract with one company and they couldnt complete the job, or werent willing to deal with the challenges.Then, when we were about to give up, along came Daniel Ramirez and the growing team at Gold Rush Energy! They dove right in and were able to solve the last challenge we had as well. Once we decided to go with a ground mount system we wanted to have a raised system so our animals could use it as a shelter in the pasture. Most companies were not offering something like this whereas Gold Rush Energy had it in their portfolio.Due to the multiple power meter aggregation and the removal of one meter that we had, things took a while to get through PG&Es approval. The Gold Rush team were constantly hounding PG&E to get that approval done and giving me regular updates. Once we received our final approval the installation was scheduled for the next week!I was initially a little worried that this is a growing company, what was the crew going to be like, how was their equipment, etc. They came on site with about 8 people, all very good work ethics, and some fairly new trenching equipment and tractors! They had a huge raised panel system to install and over 400 of trenching to do through some hard ground. I was impressed in how they got this project done!If they can get through a difficult project like ours, they should have no problem with any other system they are working on!Really looking forward to our solar production and seeing what our first annual true-up bill will look like, we should end up net zero with our efforts which is our goal! Thank you so much to Daniel and the whole team at Gold Rush Energy!

Starting from Emily and Jessica who kept me informed of all that was going on with a very professional attitude. Eric was so helpful with the financing. Michelle, their operations manager is super nice and professional. Whenever I had a question, she would answer it very patiently. She is very courteous and has a very nice attitude. Their crew who installed my panels were Justin, Calvin and Matt. All 100% professional. We had 16 panels installed in 4 hours. So fast! So don’t look any further and call them, very reasonable pricing too!

Comment: We have been considering solar for years but the cost vs. return was not there. Last year, 2018, we started looking again and the price looked good so we contacted contractors both big and small including vendors from Costco, Sams, Home Depot and Lowes. We reduced the the choices to 4 and requested more details. Three of the four were local and looked most interesting so we requested more details.Two of the three offered panels that I was interested in, Panasonic and LG. So we were down to two.Gold Rush was very fast to respond. Jeramie called and set up a meeting time, showed up and made a very impressive presentation regarding options and price. Bottom line, Gold Rush had the best price and out performed all others.The installation:We live on 23 acres, lots of room, so I wanted a ground mount system for easier maintenance.Kavin called to do a site check. He had a device that included a sky camera and a computer that calculated sunlight for every month of the year. With that he checked different locations and suggested a space near the house. Jordan produced a “Solar access and shade report”.Kevin also took a lot of photos of the planned location, our electrical panels and our property for the system design team.We signed the proposed 18 panel, 5.4 KW DC system.The construction took three days. First day was mostly work planing. Dan and Ken worked up a materials list for the panels and electrical run into our main electrical panel.Second day a big crew ( 10 or 11 people ) and went to work. It was a real treat to watch them. They automatically helped each other as needed. Dan had a ditch for the wire conduit. I asked if I could drop a PVC pipe in it for water, “sure”. I brought up the pipe and as fast as I laid it out, one of the guys glued it together!Third day, finish up, test and call for an inspection.Every work day the site was totally cleaned up. From the time the project was scheduled until PG&E approved the hookup we got a phone call at the end of the day from Emily, Jessica or Michelle to let us know what is happening and when.The system is started November 16, 2018. I wanted to wait to write a review so I could comment on its performance. On a daily bases the system has generated between 10% and 75% of our power demand. By spring and summer we will be over producing so I expect we will have no PG&E bill for the year. PG&E does charge a fee of about $10 just for being hooked up.Gold Rush Energy Solutions is a TEAM of people working together to produce a high quality product and complete customer satisfaction. An excellent local company, congratulations Jordan Lykins - CEOand Daniel Ramirez- COO

Comment: We moved to our new home in November with the expectation that we would take advantage of the Federal 30% solar tax rebate before it expires.After interviewing 6 or more solar enterprises we chose Gold Rush Energy Solutions because the sales representative, Daniel Ramirez had a thorough knowledge of the industry and equipment. We also had a narrow window for the installation and approvals to qualify for the rebate in 2018 and Gold Rush assured us that they could get the approvals needed and install the system in 2018 for the rebate. Daniel had also handled other projects in our area and had been recommend to us.Once Daniel was given the authority to proceed with our solar project on November 26th he did so with tenacity. He personally expedited the permit necessary for our county and insured that the highest quality equipment for our installation was available. The installation was completed in 2 days and the personnel doing the installation worked tirelessly and were very professional. On December 13th we were given the “ok” by PG&E to turn our system on!We would most certainly recommend Daniel Ramirez and Gold Rush Solutions to others wanting to install a solar system.

Comment: We considered several solar installers for this major investment. We were very impressed with the responsiveness, technical knowledge, and professional courtesy of Gold Rush. They answered all of our questions, and made sure we understood all of our options. We did not have that same experience with the other companies. In addition, Gold Rush had a very competitive price, and something very important to us was that they committed to getting the system installed within 2 months. After we signed the contract, service even got better. The initial design was very fast, and were able to comment on it and get any questions clarified. Gold Rush handled the permitting with the City very quickly. And the installation only took one day. The installers were very professional and courteous. Gold Rush handled the paperwork with PG&E, and in the end, we were producing energy within approximately one month which exceeded our expectations. Gold Rush set up the monitoring software and showed us how to use it, it is very easy. Bottom line, the entire experience with Gold Rush throughout the major improvement process, was a joy. We would recommend them to anyone considering a home solar installation in the area.

Comment: My wife and I received quotes from several companies, I think about 5, When we met with Daniel Ramirez and started talking solar I could tell right away that this is who we would do business with, he really knew all about the solar installation, cost, operation, process and all of the details that would be required to complete the job from start to finish, After we received their quote and processing through the other bids, we decided to go with GOLD RUSH ENERGY SOLUTIONS, they are absolutely the best, to make this process and experience even better because of my concerns about the correct size of the system, they added more panels at no cost after we had already agreed on the price, that my friends is customer service at its finest. He actually listening to my concerns and surprised me with a better,bigger system. Can you sayWOW !!! Thats what you get with this company.. and further more their service after the install is FANTASTIC. The people care about their customers and their business and its not all dollars and cents..

Comment: We chose Gold Rush to install a solar panel system at our new home in the Placerville area this summer, and couldnt be happier with the work they did. Daniel listened to what we wanted, clearly explained how solar works without talking down to us, and was more than happy to help estimate our current and future power requirements. This was a far different experience than we had with multiple other companies, both large and small, and we felt confident we made the right choice when we signed the contract with Gold Rush.They had the system up and running and connected to the grid within a month of getting the green light, and it is fabulous to see these $0 PG&E bills, even during the hottest summer months! Jordan and his crew did a great job on the install, and we wish all contractors were so pleasant to work with.I would happily hire them again if we ever needed solar for a different location. Gold Rush also helped us arrange financing, and now we have a reasonable monthly bill that is less than our PG&E bill would be, and our system will be paid off in 10 years. All in all, we couldnt be more satisfied with our decision to go solar with Gold Rush.

Comment: Where do I begin?My husband and I met with 5 other solar contracting companies where we struggled with the presentedoptions, total costs and interest rates available to us before finding Daniel and Jordan with Gold RushEnergy Solutions. Gold Rush Energy Solutions was the only company where the project design, thedetailed information and the numbers made sense. Gold Rush put together a system that has met ourenergy needs, using current technology and high-quality equipment, and at a price that brought the deal to a close. The finance company available with them had by far the best terms we had yet seen.We signed the contract, and in less than a week Daniel was back to us with the scheduled installationprocess. Jordan was on site to confirm the install. Daniel submitted the proposal to the county for thepermit in week 2. They broke ground in the same week that the county approved the permit. They had the system installed and ready for PG&E by the end of week 3. Our solar system was up and running in less than a month of signing our contract. They continue to follow up with us to see how we are doing. We have been on the solar system now for several months and it is producing where they projected. We have friends and neighbors who are producing much less than they were told to expect by the solar companies they went with. I tell them they should have gone with Gold Rush! What more can I say? They have more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Jordan, Daniel and crew!

Comment: I had talked to many solar companies and specially the big names. Then i talked to Daniel from Gold Rush Energy Solutions. He was very nice and polite and listened to all my questions and explained me all the advantages of the solar system and its different options with the solar panels available in the market and the invertor systems. He was not really pushy like all other solar companies will definitely do. Once i finalized the system with them, it took 1-2 weeks only to get it approved and permits and installation.Also approval from PG&E was also very quick and my system was running perfectly as it was explained and the way it should be.Also the installation crew were very professional and finished up the job on time and also cleaned up everything and also painted the conduits and pipes used on the wall.They were professional and neat as they worked.Also the online monitoring system is working perfectly as expected.I have seen the installation for other solar systems in my neighborhood and i could see the difference.I will definitely recommend GOLD RUSH ENERGY SOLUTIONS than the big companies, as you will get good service and personal attention than the corporate service which you dont know who you are talking to and might be different salesperson every few months.I will definitely recommend to all my friends.Finally A HAPPY CUSTOMER.

Comment: My wife and I have spoke to well over 6 different solar companies.  We didn’t “feel it” with them.  They would listen to what we wanted, tell us they can work with us and then hit us with the lease pitch.  Even if you change the word “lease” to something else it is still a lease… Sorry.  We simply wanted to buy our panels and have them installed.  We wanted to have the least money out of pocket and take advantage of the government rebates and loans.  We wanted to have 100% of the energy produced applied to our PG&E bill.  The others said “No, no, no.  We install panels, you pay us for your electricity at a reduced rate.”  OK, that’s fair if you don’t know there are other options.Then we met Jordan and Daniel from Gold Rush Energy Solutions.  They knocked on our door one HOT Saturday afternoon.Right away my wife and I liked these guys.  I had a lot of questions and they answered everything backing it up with documentation whenever I needed it.  They weren’t “Yes Men” though.  There were a couple of points that weren’t going to work but they came up with alternate approaches whenever possible.  We signed on the dotted line.Less than a week later they and their team were on our roof putting in the system.  They had arrived right on time (maybe even a little early).  They were professional and neat as they worked.  Our neighbors had a team installing solar as well.  They had ordered theirs 2-3 months prior and they were finally getting the panels put up.  Their workers were definitely not on the same caliber as the Gold Rush Energy Solutions crew.  One big difference was that by noon when our solar was installed it was FULLY installed.  Ready to run.  The inspector showed up after lunch and was done in no time.  He was thrilled at the job they did with all of the electrical modifications and additions.  There was nothing for hime to complain about which made his paperwork very short and simple.  The house next door wasn’t even scheduled for inspection yet.  We had to wait a few days for PG&E to process us into the system for the meter changes they needed to do.  Then we were fully online.  The guys went out of their way and asked if we had any leftover house paint which we did.  They painted the metal conduit running up to the roof so that it blends in… neighbors is still an ugly silver/grey.Would I hire them again?  Absolutely YES.Would I refer them to a friend?  A resounding YES.I wish all jobs went so well.A very happy customer.
