It was an absolute pleasure working with Gopal. After years of considering going solar, we finally bit the bullet and went for it. Our solar journey started with receiving a few quotes from a few other solar installers, all of which completed the system design and quoting process solely based on Google Earth imagery. This led to multiple designs iterations, uncertainty as to which ones would actually work based on placements of roof vents, chimneys etc.
Gopal took the time during the quoting process to do a site visit, take proper roof measurements, and provided a compelling design and project plan. Throughout the process, and even now that the system is complete, Gopal was extremely responsive, always willing to answer any questions we had and did a great job educating us about our solar system and solar systems in general. During the system design phase, we were a bit nervous about the aesthetics of the system and what it would look like once installed on our roof. Gopal had lots of pictures from previous jobs that really helped show us what the finished product would look like. While the panels themselves are black with black framing, the rails in which the panels are mounted on are silver in colour. Gopal went the extra mile to ensure all exposed rails were painted black, which really makes the system blend well with the roof.
We ended up installing a 10.7KW system with 35 CanadianSolar 305W monocrystalline panels, power optimizers and a 7.6K SolarEdge inverter. We could not be any happier with the system and its production capabilities. The monitoring tool that SolarEdge provides (which comes free with the system) is awesome, especially for those who love data. It lets you see production of the system in real time and even drill down to the individual panel level to see what’s happening…really cool stuff.
Overall, we could not be happier, Gopal and his team did an amazing job and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking at going solar.
