What Customers Are Saying

"We received quotes from several different companies before settling on GRNE due to their combination of best system cost and solar system technology. Impressed with their professionalism and low-pressure sales approach. GRNE was easy to work with during the install process and handled all permitting and approvals. Our 7kW system is now up and running and we're enjoying the benefits of solar energy!"

"Great company to work with! I found Jess and Travis extremely knowledgable and willing to answer all my questions. I also appreciated their attention to detail in the analysis of solar production, tree shading, return on investment, etc. I definitely recommend doing business with GRNE!!"
