Comment: There is a reason Johnson Solar is rated with such stellar reviews. Clint and his team were a breeze to work with from start to finish. I have a family friend who does solar that I was considering working with and he told me to work with Johnson Solar because their rates were the best in town. I really appreciated Clints communication and would recommend Johnson Solar to anyone who wants quality service at an affordable cost.

Comment: From start to finish Clinton and the team at Johnson Solar went above and beyond to get solar on my roof in a timely manner. The team gave us a quote and design very quickly and the whole process could not have been easier. When the installation time came, their team finished the job quickly and left the job site clean and tidy. Easily passed inspection and PTO.Im extremely happy with the job they did. I would recommend Johnson Solar !

Comment: We couldnt be happier with the solar installation done by Johnson Solar. Clinton, the owner, was very prompt, attentive, and provided us clear communication throughout the whole process. Even with the large influx of customers seeking installations before the NEM 2.0 expiration, the outcome for us was highly efficient, fast, and satisfactory. Johnson Solar and team exemplified professionalism and transparency with their communication and hard effective work. Needless to say, we are beyond pleased with the results. We wholeheartedly recommend Johnson Solar to all families and friends for their fair pricing, exceptional service, and impressive solar technology. Thank you, Clinton, Chris and Johnson Solar team!

Comment: I cant say enough good things about my experience with Johnson Solar. The owner works with you specifically and not a hired salesman. I have had the solar system running for 6 months without any problem. You can see what you are generating at any time. My SDGE bills have been virtually non existent. I checked with others what they paid for their systems and Johnson came out as a bit less expensive; and the service and responsiveness was well worth it. Bottom line I recommend Johnson Solar to anyone out there!

Comment: Johnson Solar has the best prices, service and quality products in Southern California. I had my system installed during the busiest time in this companies history and they made me feel like I was their only customer. Will be referring them to all of my friends and would use them again

Comment: Clint from Johnson Solar was very easy to work with even with the mad crunch of everyone trying to get their solar installed before end of NEM 2.0. I have a very steep roof with lots of angles but we were able to get 17 panels up and theyre producing electricity quite well for about a month now. It was also supposed to rain heavy with 20 mile an hour winds the day of install so wanting to avoid injury Clint pushed it back to early the following week. Install was done within a day. Time will tell how the electricity via panels averages out as I have most facing south, but a few facing strictly east for morning sun, and west for afternoon sun. Just the way my roof had to accommodate the panels. At this point, can highly recommend Johnson Solar for your solar installation.

Comment: A neighbor mentioned their positive experience with Johnson Solar. I had already shopped around a bit for rooftop solar and sure enough when I talked to Clinton at Johnson solar, he stood out as the most upfront and honest. I sent him my information, a few photos of my house, electrical panel and past utility bills so he could size an appropriate system. I was emailed a few system size options with quotes to choose from within a couple of days. There was no pressuring me, no things that did not sound right and no surprises. The prices looked great was in writing, and the type of panels and other components were very top quality. They were doing some large projects at the time but managed to squeeze me in somehow. Clinton and all his crew were great to have working at my house. The system was in within a few weeks time looks professional and is beyond my expectations. I recommend them to anyone looking into going solar.

Comment: As a customer seeking solar services, it is crucial to find a company that prioritizes effective communication and promptly addresses inquiries. Johnson Electric Solar, led by Clint and his team, has exemplified the professionalism and responsiveness one expects when entrusting such a critical service to a provider.I recently contacted Clint with a request around midday, and was pleasantly surprised when my concern was resolved within just a few hours. The teams commitment to customer satisfaction has fostered a strong sense of trust and appreciation for the services they provide.I am truly grateful for the ongoing relationship with them and would like to extend my sincerest thanks to Clint and his team for their unwavering dedication to excellence in service delivery.

Comment: It has been 2.5 years since Johnson Solar installed my solar panel installation. During that time I have not paid a penny for electricity and have had a surplus owed at the end of each year that was carried forward. I have already saved half of what the system cost me. This system performance is based on 2 factors: 1. Clintons price was the most competitive I received, by a long shot. 2. More importantly, he installed a high quality system, did a fantastic installation with no external conduit and explained everything he was doing and why. And, I have not had to call him back. I highly Johnson Solar.

Comment: Love word of mouth companies.Love efficient communication.Love people doing what they say.These things mean lean operations with a focus on delivery. This is about getting in, and getting it done. There rates are super competitive, no BS, you pay them, they do work. I dont need to talk to people about stuff that is basic. When you have a good customer (me, pays on time, understands time/worth, understands quick talk) and a good company (word is bond, shows up, executes as planned) there is no need for BS overhead. This is where these guys comes come in. Efficiency in knowledge and money saved.

Comment: Johnson Solar just completed my solar panel Installation project about two months ago.About nine years ago, I had a couple of estimates for installing solar panels on my roof. The average cost was approximately $24,000.00 for 20 panels.The price was too high for me, so I did not have the work done.Last May, my friend in Alpine had solar panels placed on his roof. I decided to check into having the work performed on my home.I checked with four different companies. The number of panels was from 11 to 15. The price was within $4,000.00 among the four companies bids.One of the companies was a referral from another friend of mine who had just recently had solar placed on his roof.That Company was Johnson Solar. They had the best panels, in my opinion and the best price. After talking to some of my neighbors, I determined that my panels are generating more KW than theirs are.From the quote to the system turn on, it was less than three weeks. It took one day for the installation, and you would never have known the crew were here. I did keep them well hydrated with water and Gatorade.Considering I am on a fixed retirement income, today was a joyful day when I received my SDGE bill in the mail. This bill was covered by 100% solar. The bill read, “No payment is due. Your account has a credit balance of” over one hundred dollars. (My words) My normal bill, this time of the year would have been between $200.00 and $300.00 for a 2000 square foot home.Overall this has been a huge positive investment. I would highly recommend Johnson Solar to anyone who wants to make that move to solar.I would award Johnson Solar five stars plus. Their work crews and office people are the best.

Comment: Clinton and his team were top notch! I was kindof a stressed out consumer since I had heard some stories about people being bait and switched on solar quotes but that was not the case with Johnson Solar. They stuck to their price quote and actually installed it a little faster than predicted as well!

Comment: Johnson Solar just completed my solar panel Installation project about a week ago. The entire process from the quote to the system turn on was professional and efficient. They completed the project much quicker than the time frame that other companies quoted. They also use the latest technology and all at a very competitive price. I also had roofing work done at the same time and the roofing company that Clint (the owner) uses is also excellent. I do want to give a special thanks to Ross, the company rep in my area,for being patient with all my questions and for making sure the project went smoothly. Overall just a great experience. I would highly recommend Johnson Solar to anyone considering this type of project.

Comment: Had Johnson Solar install our solar panels about 18 months ago. Like the other reviews, we experienced great customer service, pricing, timely response to any questions we had and rapid turnaround. We recently had an issue with the inverter not communicating with Solar Edge. Although the system was working, we had no way of knowing what it was producing. On each occasion Clinton sent someone or came by himself, to check out and resolve the issue. If youre considering getting solar, give Clinton a call. You wont be disappointed.

Comment: We were referred to Johnson Solar by two neighbors who used him. We couldnt be happier with the communication, excellent customer service, pricing and quick turnaround to completion of our new solar system! Clinton was straight to the point with informative e-mails - no pushy sales pitch - and was timely with responses to our many questions. He gave us the time we needed to get other quotes and carefully make this big-ticket purchase. He is hard-working and surrounds himself with a terrific team including Jose whose crew did full re-roofing in two days and were meticulous with clean-up. Oscar at the office kept us informed of permit approval and inspection.The foremen and crew for the solar install were courteous, informative, and again, super-clean upon completion. We highly recommend Johnson Solar.

Comment: I recently purchased an estate home in La Mesa and noticed that the gutters had not been maintained in a while, accumulating significant debris. Otherwise, the gutters were in good shape, so they just needed a good cleaning. I contacted a couple of firms to get the gutters cleaned. The first firm that came out wanted to sell me new gutters. Clinton quoted me a very reasonable price for cleaning the gutters and when my appointment came up, he realized hed fully scheduled his crew, so he personally came out and cleaned the gutters himself.Thats keeping your commitments! Thanks, Clinton.

Comment: These guys are the real deal. I shopped around for about a year and talked to about half dozen installers. The thing that distinguished Johnson was that the owner, Clinton, called me back himself right away. Hes a straight shooter, no need for a slick folder of brochures, no need to BS or coax you. Youre talking to the owner and this guy is driven to get things done efficiently and well.Clinton was totally patient with me working on the design, willing to tweak things and make changes to make sure my wife would be happy with the look of the result. We ended up choosing the QCELL all-black cells so theyd nicer and sit narrower. Clinton never upsold me or pushed me on the cells, while competitors I felt like had some kind of skin in the game and would push me toward particular cells, maybe for their own reasons. He did strongly recommended the enphase microinverter system, and when I investigated a lot of people agree that its just got the nicest apps & software, and is the cheapest to maintain over the long term.The roofing crew and the electric/installer crew were both happy and efficient. To me thats always a good sign -- a happy, focused crew is faster and does better work. The roofers had a cheerful kind of assembly-line approach to moving around the concrete tiles, chatting and smiling. Same thing for the electric/installer crew. Everyone seemed like they had the lightbulbs on up there in the attic. Efficient and intelligent.I dont usually bother to write reviews, but this business is the real deal and I wish Clinton and Jose and Raphael and everyone involved nothing but the best of continued success. You wont regret working with any of them. Top notch.

Comment: Johnson solar did a solar upgrade on my system and not only did a fantastic job, they added high quality high wattage panels and I cannot recommend Clinton or his company enough. They fit me into their busy schedule at the end of the year, and did a top notch job, so far I couldn’t be any happier. I feel that there are some shady companies doing solar, Clinton and Johnson solar are definitely an exception, they are excellent. I would not only recommend them, I would hire them again if I was thinking of doing more panels or batteries, they simply do great work. Don’t hesitate to contact them through their website, and you won’t be disappointed. Thanks guys, great job!!

Comment: Our friends recommended Johnson Solar to us when we said we were interested in installing solar panels on our new house. They said Johnson Solars owner, Clinton, had recently installed solar on their house and they were really satisfied with his service. We reached out to Clinton and a couple other local solar companies to get quotes for our install--none of the other companies could even come close to the affordable price quoted to us by Johnson Solar. Once we gave Clinton the green light, he quickly scheduled our installation, and on the day of install, he and his team were done with all the work within a few hours. Lightning fast! Clinton walked us through our next steps for approval from the city and from SDGE, and we were able to get the entire process completed within a couple days. From the first point of contact to the last step of turning on our solar panels, Clinton was very professional, easy to communicate with, and always willing to take time to answer any questions we had along the way. 5-star service across the board. Thank you, Johnson Solar!

Comment: Johnson Solar beat all competitors by $4000. Not to mention, they installed my panels in 1 day and it only took 3 days until my service was turned on by SDG&E. I recommended them to all my neighbors and 2 of them also got their solar installed with the same fast installation and activated service by SDG&E. Two of my neighbors went with other companies and it took 6 weeks for their systems to get activated. So, I highly recommend them to everyone I talk too, because their service is top notch, which shouldnt shock me, because Mr. Johnson is a Navy Veteran.

Comment: Johnson Solar was recommended to me by a friend who was very familiar with the many construction issues that I had building my home, as a result of an incompetent general contractor. My friend knew that he would be taking a risk by recommending a company to do my solar and battery backup installation.I cannot possibly say enough good things about Johnson Solar, so I will keep it short and sweet:Johnson Solar did exactly what they promised, when they promised it and for not a penny more than they said it would have cost me.It is sad that you have to actively celebrate the fact that a company performs exactly according to their promises and your expectations, but today this is unfortunately not so common.

Comment: Clinton was the first solar company we contacted but he recommended we get a few more quotes before we made our decision. After meeting with a few other companies it was clear that Clinton beat the competition in price and in completion of the project, we were up and running in 3 weeks, compared to the other companies that said it would be more like 3-6 months. Turns out he had installed solar for a couple of our neighbors and when I asked them for a review they had nothing but glowing remarks for Clinton. I have already referred him to a few of our friends looking to go solar. Highly recommend!

Comment: Highly recommend Johnson. Quick and to the point without all the added fees from door to door salesman or the wait that you get from the solar giants. We spoke with several companies and found Johnson through reviews the Nextdoor app. It was a no nonsense process. Only after getting a quote from Johnson did all the other companies start lowering their prices for the job which they still didn’t beat because Johnson was able to get the job done faster. It was a quick and easy process. They had the panels up and ready in a day& the permit came through within a week. We’ve had solar since 4/28 with no issues but any concern I’ve had Clinton has made himself available to walk me through them. Great customer service 10/10 would use them again.

Comment: I had the unfortunate event of my solar losing production. After attempting to get a hold of the installer I was informed they are out of state now and will subcontract the work. The company they chose was still an hour away. I figured at this point I might as well find someone local.By luck or mostly their amazing service I called mid day and was serviced same day. It took less than an hour for them to solve the issue and have the system working 100% again. The tech was professional, nice and good spirited. Will reach out to them again for service and add on in the future.

All the way from a technical standpoint to a social/contact-you right away point of view Clinton answered all our questions and came out to be one of the most economical yet high quality solar installer. I’ve already recommended them to family and friends and they’re already getting their installs scheduled. I had the options of choosing my solar panels company - what kind of layout etc etc. the SDG&E inspection was also a breeze - Clinton took care of the plans, permissions and everything. The NEMA plug was installed professionally and the garage looks great inside and out. Definitely a recommend !

Comment: I found Johnson Solar through Wanted to have an attic gable fan and a garage fan installed. This was a minor job considering Johnson *Solar* is in the business of installing complete residential solar power systems but Clinton, the owner, responded within an hour of my ProReferral query to offer his services. Im a professional engineer in the defense industry and we were able to talk a lot of technical details. He is very knowledgeable and was more than happy to discuss various installation options. What I appreciated most was that he was very responsive to both email and text messaging ... Ive worked with other contractors who have been quite difficult to communicate with. His crew showed up as scheduled and were very efficient and courteous. At one point we worked together to figure out how the speed control worked on one of the fans ... great guys! While the job he performed for me was relatively minor, my positive interactions with him and his crew reflect very well on his business and work ethic. I have no hesitation in giving Johnson Solar a big thumbs up! Highly Recommended.

Comment: I guarantee that you will be happy if you use Johnson Solar! That is how Johnson Solar was recommended to me by a friend who is the second most demanding, frugal, detail oriented person I know (who also happens to be a contractor). None the less, before I hired Andre I had my most demanding, frugal, detail oriented friend (who happens to be an engineer) put him through the wringer. He tested Andres knowledge intensely with a barrage of questions and hypothetical situations. Andre answered every question, and kept his friendly, professional demeanor throughout the process. I was impressed, and I hadnt even hired him yet. Once hired, Andres professionalism, work ethic, and honesty continued to impress me. Not once was I disappointed with his willingness and ability to get things done exactly as I wanted them, which is saying something because I am the third most demanding, frugal, detail oriented person I know. I give Andre Johnson and the employees at Johnson Solar my highest possible recommendation. (And a big thank you :)

Comment: Clinton and his guys delivered exactly what was promised when I initially spoke with Clinton to receive a quote. His guys are professional, tidy, and easy to communicate with. Johnson solar added 6 panels to my existing 11 panel system. They got it done in about 4 hrs and waited until my envoy system read the new panels and verified each panel was outputting the promised wattage before taking off. A few days later we had heavy rain and no leaks. Also they were also the lowest bid and no gimmicks ( visa gift cards, ipad, etc). Had a great experience all around!

Comment: Johnson Solar installed 27 solar panels with micro-inverters on my roof. It was a great price and beat the lowest competition by over $3,000 dollars. Since the installation, about 4 years ago, I had no issues and I have been enjoying not giving any money to SDG&E. I had since referred Johnson Solar to install solar for my mother’s house and numerous friends. All are happy with their installations and enjoy energy from the sun.

Comment: Clinton saved me about $4000 on my rooftop solar install. I got estimates from the usual suspects that were all higher. I ordered my hardware and had it delivered on a Monday. My system was up and running by the following weekend! Clinton handled all the permits and coordinated the inspection process. He also installed an EV charging station in my garage. Cant say enough good things about his work ethic and expertise. If youre considering a PV solar system call him and ask for an estimate!!

Comment: This company is well organized. They arrived on the date we agreed on. They kept the area clean and completed the job in 2 1/2 days!There was a minor leak and Clint fixed it right away. That made us happy and glad we picked this company AGAIN.We had solar installed and this company did a great job.Without a doubt if you need a choice to do your electrical or roofing go with Johnson Solar.

Comment: Very professional and personal experience working Clinton from the beginning while we were designing the right size system, and during while he performed the install, and at the end showing me the ins/ outs of it all. We did a new roof and solar at the same time. He was very cost competitive and I’d recommend him to anyone looking for solar.

Comment: I had Clinton Johnson of Johnson solar install a system for me a couple years ago. He was one of the easiest contractors Ive ever worked with. Clinton took care of everything, was there every step of the way, and stands behind his work. A month ago my inverter failed and he had it RMAd and a new one installed very quickly. Ive recommended him to a few people I know and the ones that had solar installed were very happy with everything too.

Comment: Clint and the Johnson Solar team were great. The entire process was extremely fast and convenient. We had working solar on our roof within three weeks of first meeting with Clint. Weve had the solar for approximately 6 months now and are extremely pleased with the results. Highly recommend Johnson Solar for anyone looking for a rare trifecta of fast, economic, and good quality.

Comment: Clinton and his crew were very professional and upfront about the cost, installation process, & anything else that needed to be discussed. They installed a second set of solar panels for us and did not leave until they were done, despite how late it was getting. Clinton followed up afterwards to make sure everything was working for us, including the app that gives us information on how the panels are performing. I appreciate how responsive Clinton was in answering any questions I may have, even a 1.5 years after installation. I would absolutely recommend going with this small business for your solar installation.

Comment: Don’t hesitate to choose Johnson Solar! Clinton is upfront, direct, and expedient.I live in a HOA community and have a clay tile roof that needed new underlayment. Clinton solar reroofed and installed solar panels cheaper than than the competition. Believe me I checked. Including both SolarSage and all the top rated San Diego Yelp results.Clinton is the real deal.I contacted him 11/11/20 and by 12/15/20, SDGE granted me a net metering agreement. Yes that is basically 1 month from my 1st contact with Clinton to me:- Spending a week getting other quotes equivalent to what Clinton proposed and realized he was beating the competition- To Clinton removing clay tile roof- To Clinton Installing new underlayment- To Clinton Reinstalling clay tile roof- To Clinton Installing 22 LG panels with microphase inverters *recessed in a low profile manner into the clay tiles*- To the project passing final SDGE inspection.He abided by my HOA rules and all was smooth and efficient. No hassles, no surprises, no mistakes. The crew always left the home in a clean presentable manner each day they finished. Clinton was true to his word with pricing, timing, and quality of work.Top notch. A genuine pleasure to do business with. Clinton follows through with details and communicates back with you quickly. Have confidence on a job done excellently the right way while still being efficient with time for an extremely competitive price when choosing Johnson Solar.

Comment: Johnson Solar did an excellent job upgrading my 10 year old solar system. I went from a 4.5kW system to a 11.2 kW system as our power needs had increased. They did the job in a single day and also worked with me to fix some roof damage they observed during the install. I would recommend using them for either a new install or an upgrade to an existing install. Im now looking at adding a energy storage system to my install and if I do I will certainly use Johnson Solar for the install.

Comment: Ruez EndorsementAfter spending way too many hours, days and meetings with other installers I was fortunate to be introduced to Clinton Johnson by a close neighbor who had hired Clinton to install their solar. Of the 10 or more installers I have interviewed Clinton was the ONLY person who was willing to itemize all the costs and let me pay for the materials. This way I paid Clinton for his time and I paid directly for the hardware. There were no surprises and the job was completed on time as promised. eMail and phone communications were clear and on time. After the job Clinton has been available to answer the few questions we had. We also had a new roof installed at the same time as the solar and Clinton and his crew worked well (not in conflict) with the roofers. Thanks Clinton… we’ll talk when I’m ready to add more panels.

Comment: I HIGHLY recommend Johnson Solar. I received quotes from several other companies, but Clint was able to beat their quotes and provide much better value. Other contractors could only complete the install between one to two months; Clint was able to install the NEXT week. Clint and his crew were polite, courteous, and efficient during the one-day install. They made sure everything was set up and even spent extra time following up with the city and SDGE to make sure the system was good to go. Clint is an expert in solar, and I am so glad we chose his company. We have been extremely happy with our system and its performance. I highly recommend Johnson Solar for the installation of your solar panels.

Comment: So glad I went with Johnson Solar for my roof replacement and solar system.I had estimates from 5 companies, small to large, some were close in price but the systems were smaller.The best part was dealing direct with Clinton and having the system up and running in days instead of the 45 to 90 day wait from other companies. I highly recommend Clinton and Johnson Solar.

Comment: Clinton at Johnson Solar here in San Diego was easy and friendly to work with. Hes a straight shooter and was never once a pushy salesman. He actually shows up and does the install with his crew!If you do not hear do your due diligence more than once from Clinton, youve called the wrong place. They want to make sure youve done your researched, are able to shop other quotes, understanding the products that are being offered, then you can understand what youre comparing.Not only was Clintons quote extremely competitive, the kicker was, from date of contract signing to SDGE allowing us to turn on our solar was a whopping 10 days! That included, plans, San Diego County city approvals, HOA approvals (we rushed), product delivery, installation and SDGE inspections!We couldnt believe it. Most people I tell couldnt believe it. Hell I want to just order a couple more panels and microinverters on my system right now to see how fast hell do it. Thanks, Clinton @ Johnson Solar in San Diego

Comment: I concur with all of the previous reviews for Johnson Solar. We were very impressed with Clinton Johnson and his work. He met with us within a day and explained everything very clearly. His cost was below what other larger companies were charging and they did not have as good reviews, Clinton was able to start the job within a couple of days. He and his assistant did the entire job themselves within a day. We had the permits completed and the system was running within a week. We were amazed. He replies back when you have questions and uses quality equipment. We highly recommend Johnson Solar.

Comment: I shopped around quite a bit before deciding to go with Clinton at Johnson Solar. I tried the Costco people ($$$), looked into Craigslist (no thanks) and even considered hiring people myself to install. In the end Im so glad I went with Johnson to install solar on 3 of my homes for a few reasons. Price was better than the rest and Clinton stands behind his work. I also liked that he finished much quicker than he said he would. The end product is awesome. He got me some of the best rated panels and the install was quick and clean. Id definitely recommend Johnson Solar to anyone in search of a competent professional company.

Comment: Johnson Solar is hands down the best company out there! I cant begin to explain but, they deserve the best we can give back. Its really old school service and hard working employees. We called with a few questions and the next day Clinton was out first thing in the morning to give us a price and explain all the details. Within 24 hours our panels were in place running backwards in rabbit mode. Thats why I say old school service, thats the working ethics of yesteryear.Its so nice not to have to worry about what hours are the best to use electricity to keep the bill down. Electric car, air conditioners and all the rest, and the bill is still a negative (which is a positive for the pocketbook) balance. Its weird how they work so happily together.Thank you, so very much Clinton and staff for the elite craftsmanship, customer service and prompt working ethics. The word of mouth is still the best bet for hands on craftsmanship and you can bet your bottom dollar that well tell everyone to go to the best, Johnson Solar! :)

Comment: After reviewing multiple bids from various solar companies and comparing the equipment type offered, overall price, and confidence of the company itself, I decided to go with Clinton - Im glad I did!From the beginning Clinton was very communicative and took the time to explain things in detail, a trait I find extremely valuable and a marker of professionalism.A real benefit of going with a small business, like Johnson Solar, is that youre able to discuss any questions or concerns directly with the owner; no having to jump through hoops to talk to someone whos in a decision-making position, as you would if you went with a large(r) company.My PV permit was approved by the city on 5/3/19; Clinton and Raphael installed my PV system on 5/8/19; inspection by the city was completed on 5/9/19; and SDG&E issued the PTO and I was able to flip my PV system on on 5/13/19. Total turnaround from an approved permit to flipping my PV system on was 7-business days, Im happy with that kind of turnaround! My neighbor who actually had his PV system installed, not too long ago by one of the big name companies, was shocked at how fast the turnaround time was for my system.Thank you, Clinton! I will be recommending you to anyone whos interested in going solar.

Comment: We had our solar electricity system installed by Clint Johnson in September 2018. We purchased our mid-century modern home in May 2018. My wife and I were excited to start restoring the “Rockin’ H Ranch” to its 1961 glory. On the month that our SDGE electric bill climber to over $800 (GRRRR!!!) we decided it was time to bring the ranch into the 21 Century by going solar. After the installation of our system, the bill has virtually gone to zero!Clint spent two hours with us during our initial meeting to insure that we fully understood the available options in the solar market. Clint explained the difference between high end name brand panels and the more economical manufacturers, calculating kilowatts of power requirements, battery vs. no battery, etc. Clint provided the options and allowed us to make our decisions, no hype, no up-sell, no pressure, NO PROBLEM. The system was installed by Clint’s team of professionals in a very timely manner and it looks great. In addition to the solar system, Clint provided us with an updated electrical panel at about two thirds the cost of other electricians we received quotes from. Our turn-key system from Clint has proved to be economical and effective.One word of caution; make sure you are ready for action when you put Clint to work. From initial deposit to feeding electricity back to the grid for credit took about two weeks! To say that we are extremely pleased with Johnson Solar would be an understatement.

Comment: I was on the fence about getting solar because of the cost. I just bought my house and didnt want to spend the money. After getting two electrical bills for 800 and 700 dollars I contacted a few companies and they gave me some crazy prices and i had to wait a month or two before they could install. I contacted Johnson Solar the owner came by and walked me through the steps and he went up on my roof and explained everything to me and his price quote was to good to pass up. From the day we signed to contract to the the final install was 8 days. We have had the system for 6 months now and we love it.
