Living Solar did a tracking system for us about 6 years ago and a fixed, roof-mounted system more recently. The tracking system has held up reasonably well, but definitely takes a little maintenance now and then to enable its extra energy output. The roof-mounted system has been outstanding - installed promptly at a fair price, blends in nicely with the house, and produces more electricity than quoted in the original bid!

We're a retired couple who built our own home near Cortez. After enjoying the house for several years, we decided we could add PV power.Living Solar carefully and thoroughly educated us about grid-tied vs off-grid, the panels and equipment available and the best choices to accomplish what we wanted. We chose grid-tied because it is zero maintenance (other than hosing off the panels once in a while if you choose). Though there were lower bids, we selected Living Solar for their reputation, the quality of equipment they proposed and that thorough approach to providing our proposal. Their installation was very professional and careful, taking into consideration all our wishes, comments and requirements. They took care of all the paper work to quickly get our rebates. The result has operated flawlessly for 6 months and provided the power advertised when the weather cooperated. We planned for more power than we needed with a possible electric car or hot tub in the future, so it's great to watch the meter spin backward and be paid by Empire Electric. It's also fun to have an attractive meter readout indoors on our office wall as well as the ability to access our power generation status and history online from anywhere via smart phone or internet connected pc/tablet. Overall we couldn't be more pleased with the job Living Solar did for us.

We would like to say that we had Ben and his crew design and install our photovoltaic system a year and a half ago and couldn't be more satisfied customers. Everyone we encountered was friendly and professional. It was a seamless process. He walked us through everything, from the designing of the size of our system, to the energy audit and the tax paperwork. Then over the course of a very short period of time, had everything ordered and installed. There was little to no stress involved on our end. The energy savings have been fantastic and make us feel a little less guilty about having a hot tub! Also, I really like how Ben is present at so many community events and supports so many local organizations, for instance, not only a supporter at the Trails 2000 annual picnic but also buying the entrance for all his customers.

Love my system. Feel free to gaze at the array on my roof at 104 Jenkins Ranch Rd. It's a winner ;)
