We are thrilled to announce that SolarUnion has been named by EnergySage, the nation’s leading online marketplace for solar, as one of the “Best Local Solar Installers in the US in 2016”—and the only company to be offered this distinction in Northern California, where solar is growing at an unprecedented pace. The award recognizes companies that have achieved an exceptional “overall quality ranking,” as evaluated by customer reviews, quality of equipment, business accreditation and engagement with customers.
Since Ivan La Frinere-Sandoval (CalTech ’06, Stanford MBA ’12), CEO, and Renzo Castillo (Berkeley ’06, Wharton MBA ’12), Executive Director, founded the company at Stanford University in 2011, and later entered the university’s StartX accelerator in 2012, our mission has remained the same: to prioritize the customer’s experience over any other business metric, and to give our customers the opportunity to own their systems (as opposed to leasing them) to fully maximize the benefits of solar—you own the roof; you should own your system and all the benefits in connection with ownership of your system. Today, we power thousands of residential and commercial customers with customized photovoltaic solar systems, and are proud to have our mission reinforced and emboldened as we continue to grow and enable our customers to access the sun’s abundant energy.
“We’re delighted that our commitment to customer satisfaction has earned us this award, and would like to recognize and thank our team of solar professionals who continually strive to ensure SolarUnion is the preeminent solar provider in Northern California, and our community of cleantech investors, homeowners and business owners who have helped us get to where we are today,” commented Mr. La Frinere-Sandoval.
At SolarUnion, we believe it’s our focus on transparency during the customer’s engagement process; the speed and quality of our installations; as well as our 25-year performance guarantee for parts, workmanship and kWh output, that best positions us to thrive in one of the most competitive environments for solar, California, the sixth largest economy in the world.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have our focus on quality customer engagements and installations validated by EnergySage, and we look forward to continuing to lead the transformation of the market towards ownership and empowering growing numbers of Californians to access clean energy at affordable rates,” said Mr. Castillo.
