Solar Panels

I was referred to Polaron by a friend of mine. My wife and I picked the financing options and I liked how thoroughly they explained their deals and how the process would work. They kept in constant communication with me from the application process to the installation process. The panels are now up and ready and I’m very happy with everything, especially the savings

Excellent service

Polaron recently installed solar panels on our home. The service was great, very clear communication and everything was completed in a timely manner. Highly recommend them!

14600 KW Solar Array

Decided one day to check out an add on Facebook that Polaron had. Did the math and it was a no brainer plain and simple, why keep paying an electric bill that only increases yearly or use Polaron’s 0% monies to finance a power station of my own and bill the power company!

Our thoughts exactly. Thanks to our program it allows for proper distribution of energy, and ensure that you can hedge your energy against the rising cost of power.

Happy with the system

Polaron met my expectations. The proposal received explained how the system worked, the benefits, and projected savings. As the project proceeded, I was kept informed as the work reached the various milestones along the way. They responded to my questions as they came up. Once installation began, it took about a month to complete. Installation was later than expected. Initially I was told the system should be completed in the fall of 2020. But it was delayed and not completed until April of 2021. As the weather warms up and the sunny days get longer and more frequent, we are enjoying our solar system.

Thank you for the review,

Installation times can vary especially when scheduling with the local distribution company. As of late their availability has become much thinner and we are doing our best to figure out faster times with them. Enjoy the panels!

Solar panels

We came across a Polaron representative at our local Home Depot. The gentleman there was very knowledgeable and helped us to understand the products, the service, the pricing, and the procedures. He hooked us up with a Polaron agent in Toronto, who was equally helpful. All of our targets have been met, and we are now just awaiting installation in the next few weeks. We could not be more excited, and have been very happy with the service from Polaron from start to almost finish. We are happy to recommend Polaron with pleasure!

Great After Service

After determining solar system with low risk, we chose them. Got our solar in 2020 and had a few questions with monitoring the system with the Apsystem app. Called in and they readily helped me figure out how to reset my system to track my system. We were treated professionally and with courtesy. Appreciate the great service.

Solar Panel Installation

Polaron did an excellent job guiding us through the process of getting solar panels. Their financing options were great and the main reason we decided to go with polaron.
The technicians contracted by polaron to survey, inspect, design and finally install the panels and electrical wiring were very professional and courteous.
The only problem I had with polaron was slow response to communications. They could have done a better job keeping in touch with us during the process which wound up taking almost a year and a half due partly to the pandemic.

Solar panel install

Wanted to go solar. These were the guys that had what I wanted. Great equipment,People, Lease agreement. Everything was just as they said other than the install date but that was the fault of covid-19. When the world shut down it messed with their schedual.

2 Year Batle.

Do not go with Polaron Solar.

The turn-key solution they promised turned out to be a 2 year nightmare.

Poor attention to detail, poor response times, poor quality of work.

This was a project that was not standard. I have a metal interlock roof which if things were done properly would have involved both companies. Instead, Polaron insisted their installation method would be fine, and went ahead. Thus, my lifetime roof from Interlock has most likely been compromised.

My system did not pass the City of Edmonton electrical inspection, a roof mast was required. It took Polaron over a year to come and install the up to code mast.

When they did, they simply ripped the old casing from my house leaving damage down to the framing, and they just left it as is. They said they would compensate me for the emergency repairs I have had done, I'm still waiting to hear back from them. I had to engage with independent exterior contractors to fix the wall damage they left, and to rework the wiring on the roof as it was unacceptable.

Polaron workers would show up unannounced to my house. They did not clean up their worksite and I had to clean up their mess on several occasions.

The lack of professionalism and care was evident throughout the entire stressful experience.

Save yourself the stress and money, avoid Polaron at all cost.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. In response to your review, and wanted to reach out and apologize if you felt that the process did not meet your expectations. We wanted to provide some clarification on the matter, as you said it was not a standard process for this particular project.

With regards to the electrical mast, the primary reason why the mast has to be relocated was Epcor noted to us that (1) the existing service Weatherhead is being the roofline with a round meter base and (2) that the conductors insulation is fraying. While we did conduct an on-site assessment of your property prior to installation, this was unfortunately not captured as an issue as we operated under the assumption that the existing electrical setup met the applicable electrical codes & requirements. The specific issue in question is not related to solar which is where our focus is. In order to make the changes to ensure that the existing deficiency related to the Weatherhead was remedied, we did ask our installation team to make the adjustment at our own costs. Thus helping to bring the home up to code outside of what is part of the solar installation contract. As the repair of the exterior façade was outside the expertise of our installation team and to ensure that the repairs were done to your satisfaction, we felt it would be best if you would find a specialized contractor company. Please reach out through e-mail or homestars regarding the invoices related to this and we can resolve the situation.
