A little over two years ago Nova West Solar put a system on our roof, during that time we have not had an electric bill, and our annual electric production has come within $20 (overproduction) of what we used, all this while keeping the house cool in the warm weather, and shirt sleeve warm in the winter. The crew that installed the system worked quickly and efficiently on our job. I have an extensive background in construction, and I was impressed with how well the job was planned and executed, and the crew's level of skill and professionalism. When they had finished, after the city inspector had signed off on the job, I asked him how the work stacked up against that of other solar companies and he told me that their work was of the highest quality, which of course pleased me. Even though I had known Gary and Rob for some time, I still shopped around. Friendship is important, but business is business. As it turned out, my research gave me a greater appreciation of the competitiveness of their proposal. Since then I have suggested that friends, who told me that they were interested in solar at least talk to Nova, and in every case, with no pressure from me beyond the suggestion, they had Nova do the work, and have been extremely pleased with it, and what it cost. Of course I told them to do a lot of shopping since this would be a sizable investment.
