Customer Testimonial

What homeowners are saying about Photon Brothers

They have proven themselves as top tier in their field…

What an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and experienced team I had working for me! I’m very demanding, and rightly so with an investment this size. Nonetheless, Photon Brothers delivered everything I required of them. They have proven themselves as top tier in their field. I wish to commend Derek, Adolphe, Collin, and Andy for their electrical work. Also, Sam and Josh for their work on the panel installation. Last but not least by any measure, John E. for his expertise in architecture/​design and Amanda for her excellent Project Management skills. I look forward to our continual relationship, as the system produces and gets maintained. Thanks for everything!

The Process

Your solar panel installation in five easy steps

  1. Schedule a FREE custom estimate

    Central Coast homeowners have three easy ways to get a free custom solar estimate from Photon Brothers. Give us a call at (805) 351-3371, schedule a virtual or in-person estimate, or use our online solar calculator for an instant quote. We'll ask you a few questions regarding your home's location, energy usage, and budget, and then provide upfront pricing on system recommendations.

  2. Get a customized proposal

    At Photon Brothers, our in-house solar engineers design completely custom solar systems. After careful assessment of your Central Coast home location, roof pitch, daily routines, and energy needs, we'll design a solar system that not only meets your budget but provides your most significant return on investment too. When finished, we'll prepare a detailed proposal (including cost, potential lifespan savings, and installation timelines) that you can review at your leisure. Feel free to ask questions and think things through without any sales pressure.

  3. We provide a top-notch installation

    After more than a decade of successful solar installations, Central Coast homeowners can trust us to provide a seamless installation experience. We'll obtain any necessary permits from the city or county, and then our team of NABCEP-certified solar professionals will perform a swift panel installation, completed to the highest of industry standards.

  4. We handle the inspection process

    Most solar panel installations take just a few days to complete. However, you'll still need final permission from your local city or county inspector to power on. The good news is that Photon Brothers will coordinate the final inspection process for you, and keep you informed every step of the way!

  5. Give us your feedback

    Our #1 goal is your complete satisfaction. Following your installation, we'll send a brief survey requesting feedback on our performance. If anything could be improved, we want to know about it!
