Customer’s request: Phil D. was looking to go solar. Because it can be an overwhelming process, he was interested in working with a company that would provide expert guidance. To his delight, that’s exactly what he found when he contacted Photon Brothers.

Our solution: Following a free custom estimate, our solar engineers presented Phil with high-efficiency designs that would serve his energy needs both upfront and long-term. Once he approved the estimate, he was blown away by the professionalism and expertise of his solar panel installers, who took the time to answer his questions with insightful and informative answers. And when it came time for the final inspection, he really appreciated the technical explanations provided by our local expert, Miles. Solar technology isn’t always easy to explain, but Miles helped Phil understand the ins and outs of his new system in clear, helpful terms.

For the outstanding experience he received, Phil shared the following kind words in his 5-star review.

Our system has been running for four weeks, and we are delighted with the staff and system from Photon Brothers. The electrical installers were outstanding. They were informative, efficient, and extremely insightful with all our questions. I want to make a special mention of Miles K. who was the final inspection/​technician. Miles is a superbly trained professional. He is insightful and polished in his explanations. His ability to explain the technical as well as basic aspects of the system has been the highlight of this project. I wholeheartedly recommend Photo Brothers to anyone considering a solar system.
