  • "I have been very pleased with the efforts of Renova on installing a new solar system in my home.  In particular, Brandon De La Torre as my Renova Energy Consultant listened to my concerns and answered all my questions.  I had a new roof installed concordantly, and Renova was very accommodating with regard to scheduling conflicts with the roofers, and very careful when placing solar panels on the new roof.  I would highly recommend Renova, Brandon and their installation teams to any homeowner considering installing a solar system.  They can be confident that the job will get done right."

  • "My Renova Energy system went live this week! I’m so impressed with the smoothness and timeliness of the entire process. Cortland, the senior energy consultant, was there every step of the way to explain the system, outline the installation timeline, and answer every question. Luis, the construction manager, walked me through some points of the installation, and was excellent at finding the best solutions when there were decisions to be made. The installation crew headed by Sylvester was efficient, communicative, and respectful of my needs while working. Sylvester was very conscientious about explaining the installation stages, answering any questions, and addressing my concerns. Office staff were also extremely responsive and professional. The appearance of the finished work is neat and clean. I’m also very impressed that employees are trained and educated by the company as well as being promoted from within Renova. The loyalty and commitment to customer service by the employees is readily apparent. I was told by several solar owners who used Renova Energy, including neighbors and relatives, that Renova Energy is the best. I couldn’t agree more."

  • "The Renova crew has been fabulous. Our energy consultant Mark Licon was thorough in his initial presentation and has been available throughout the process keeping me up to date. The crew was always on time, thorough, and courteous. I have faith that all will go well in the future."

  • "I was looking at solar with my parents and James Kortmeyer made it super easy. He was super professional and very easy to work with. He was able to provide all the answers to my questions about solar. He will treat you like family and make sure you are good with everything. I highly recommend James if you were interested in Solar."

  • "Just had solar panels installed on our home. After research and asking trusted friends I chose Renova Energy. Could not be more pleased. From beginning to end it was a pleasant experience. All the personnel were very professional. The installation crew did a super job. At the end of each work day they cleaned up the job site completely. Renova is the best IMHO."

  • "I highly recommend Renova. James was able to provide a prompt and accurate estimate of the system required. Within a day of starting the process a professional team was assessing my roof and taking measurements to provide a more accurate estimate of the system required for my home. We have been updated with the next step and expected timeline. Best decision. Peace of mind to work with local company, which has team of professionals. Note: Prior to contacting Renova I thought I was saving money looking into another company (online). I was only offered package A, B, or C. Either not enough panels or too many. Poor communication, months of no progress, I was nervous about what I was getting into. I am happy I was recommended Renova"

  • "Totally satisfied with the entire team at Renova Energy. From Cortland's very professional and thorough explanation and presentation of how the system works, to the individuals who measured for the system (can't recall their names), to Bianca who coordinated with our HOA, to Gwen who coordinated the install, and to Alvaro and his Crew 10 team of installers, we are totally impressed. Highly recommend Renova Energy!"

  • "This was the second time that we've used Renova to install solar panels on our home, and for our current residence we also added battery storage (Tesla Power Wall) along with the panels. Once again the crews were first-rate and did excellent work. For this most recent project I want to thank Alonzo and Demetrios for their work most recently on the batteries installation, as well as Enrique Holt who guided us through the entire project from start to finish, and who made it all very easy for us."

  • "Highly recommend and endorse Enrique Hoyt who is an energy consultant with Renova. Enrique is very professional and thorough in explaining the options for solar energy. What a true pleasure to meet someone who truly cares about you as a customer."

  • "Renova and Taj Lindels, my Advisor were very very professional,. They did everything they said they would, on time and thorough. They cleaned up every day and were polite and helpful with any questions I had. They were finished quicker than they estimated and we are loving having solar power. Would highly recommend Taj and Renova...."

  • "Renova itself has a good reputation. I am giving it 2pts. because of the financial institution their contract is with, Sunpower Solar. The contract is in small print and lengthy. I live in the Coachella Valley and we get the sunshine most of the year. 2020 I had a credit on my 'settlement' bill in the amount of -$55.00. In May 2020 Renova's equipment failed. It was the inverter. It was out May to Aug. for 94 days and their equipment did not produce any energy for the grid. It took Renova that long to replace it, Even after phone calls. At the end of my settlement bill for 2021 I owed $621.80 payable to SCE. Thankfully they have payment plans..lol I am screwed. Apparently the contract does not make-up for the credit you should have. After 'reviewing' my account, Sunpower is not even making up the SCE bill balance. Sunpower is only covering $606.46 of the $621.80 of my SCE settlement bill. Which means I am out of the credit I usually have on my settlement bill and the shortage of the settlement total.. And I have yet to receive the refund, which is mailed from San Jose, a 3 day mailing process. Lesson: Make sure your system is working and if not, get on the phone right away and get the problem fixed. UPDATE: 4/12/2021 I finally got through to Sunpower "Payment Solutions Dept". Inquired about my refund check, gave them my name and I hear "you are not in the system". Wow, so where have my payments been going! Maybe I should stop making payments. lol"

  • "Matt McPherson is an outstanding Energy Consultant and his 11+ years of solar/energy industry experience and knowledge is unparalleled. Matt is a rare find in this industry and I highly recommend him. Matt and his team at Renova Energy truly take the time to make your process of switching to solar easy and smooth. Renova Energy is an award-winning SunPower Elite Dealer and they install the most efficient solar panels available in the industry. The Tesla Battery Storage Powerwall is awesome and it provides you with access to your solar power 24 hours a day in case of a power outage. If you're in the market for Solar Energy and you're a savvy shopper, you will make Matt McPherson and Renova Energy your first choice!"

  • "2/20/21: Many of the issues that I had (see below) have been corrected, and so I've updated my review to three stars and I anticipate increasing them further. I'll likely repost an entirely new and complete review soon, but I'd like to see how all will turn out. 2/13/21: I have just had my solar panels installed and turned on (in south Palm Springs), however, there were and still are several problems with the job and I'm hoping that they will be resolved. Prior to installation I would have given our salesman, Cortland, a perfect review, but even though he had promised to show up the day the work was to start, he never did nor did he arrange any substitute and as a result several things were done incorrectly per our discussions and his assurances. In fact, I'm not sure any actual supervisor type ever did show up. Several times the crew said, no one told us that. So things that were promised and some that are in writing have not been done or were done differently and/or not as well. Also, the crew left a substantial mess in our laundry room and some in the garage, of broken bits of concrete stucco (a very large bucket's worth, pushing our dryer out from the wall and blocking the door). Only by chance when one of the crew returned for his ladder did he help clean up most of it at my very strong insistence (otherwise no one would have done it). Additional problems are with conduit location, unfinished paint, unlabeled circuits, spaghetti ground wire locations and more. I would appreciate some correction of these problems and I hope that I will be able to change this one star review to a 4 or 5 star review, but so far, I have not been pleased with the result of choosing Renova."

  • "I inquired about getting solar in August 2020 for my parents house. Albert was our consultant and prided Renova on their great reviews, because we were looking into other options as well. My first complaint is that during his consult, he mentioned that as soon as our permit was approved, they would install the solar panels which we were looking at a November install. I received an email that our permit was approved 11/3/20, in which I emailed Albert to set up a date to install the solar. He told me 12/2 was the earliest date they could install, which is a month after our permit was approved. 1 month is different than as soon as you receive the okay to install. After I asked for an earlier install date, miraculously, there was an earlier date in November. Our solar was installed on 11/19/20 and took a few days to complete. After it was completed, there was no follow up on what the next steps were on whether it was active or not. Communication from Renova went cold. My brother and I emailed Albert regarding what the next steps were and he kept saying that it is not active but no follow up in terms of when to expect it to be active. I spoke with Lynn, one of the managers and she told me there was an issue with our solar and she would contact the IT department to get it fixed and then call us back to follow up. She never called back. My brother called Renova plus to figure out why our solar is not working. At the end of the day, my family should not be working this hard to figure out why our solar panels aren’t working. Albert and Lynn should have figured that out for us as we are new customers who know nothing about solar. Just a few days ago, our app finally showed that our solar was active and working and I still have yet to get an in service on how to interpret any of this. UPDATE: my review went from 1-3 stars because Nate and Courtland took care of all my needs and concerns. Hopefully as we work with Renova more in the future, it will be 5 stars."

  • "I love this group of people. Barb was my sales manager and working with her has made my first time buying solar a smooth and fun experience. She truly cares about what you need and she went above and beyond to make sure I had all the information required to make the right decision. I did get to meet some of the other team members and Julio was the head of the installation team and he and his crew were just as friendly, upbeat and professional as Barb. Aida in the office helped me out on the back end and words can’t even describe how helpful she was! I highly recommend Renova and anyone would be lucky to have them as their solar company."

Matt and his team at Renova take the time to make your process of switching to solar so easy and smooth. If your looking to save on energy ask for Matt. You won’t be disappointed."
