We are very happy with our choice of HFX Solar and would recommend them for your Solar needs. All of our questions were quickly answered and the staff is very knowledgeable and easy to speak with. Josh takes the time to explain the process and the next steps and is very honest with timelines. I did lots of research and got quotes from other companies, however, nobody could match Josh Howell with HFX Solar Inc. on the pricing, quality and customer service. If anyone wants to contact us to ask us more about the service please do so.
In the fall of 2019 we decided to take advantage of the Solarhomes rebate program offered in Nova Scotia and go solar. We were a little anxious about the whole process. We have a large, 100 year old, home and were looking at a substantial solar array (36 panels) that would be situated on three different roofs. We had done all the paperwork and were simply waiting for someone to do the installation. That’s when we met Josh Howell and HFX Solar. From the moment Josh and his team arrived at our property they were professional, efficient and completely considerate (every scrap of waste material was cleaned before they left). I think Josh knew that I had very little technical knowledge on how the solar system would work and what would be involved in the installation process – panels, inverters, etc. We were kept informed the entire time and then given a lot of tech assistance when we downloaded the app that would allow us to monitor our own production of energy. The aftermarket service has been extraordinary and at a level that I’ve never encountered before. I can easily and enthusiastically recommend HFX Solar for any of your solar energy needs.
We are impressed and pleased with the product and service provided by HFX Solar . They surpassed our expectations in all aspects from start to finish. The company was in constant communication in regards to timelines and updates on the installation process -which we appreciated.
The employees of HFX Solar were an absolute pleasure to work with from the initial consultation, through installation and setup, to follow-up. Josh and James were always on time and prompt to respond to any of our questions. James, the electrician, was tireless in his effort to make sure the system was wired properly. Our original electrical setup was old and needed an upgrade and HFX Solar made sure this was completed in such a way that it exceeded our expectations. They also showed great care in protecting our property throughout the install.The roof mounting, along with roof penetrations was expertly done and very clean. We have had two heavy rain storms and a couple of massive wind storms since finishing the project and there have been no roof leaks or any other problems associated with the installation. The finished product is a new example of proper installation of conduit, distribution panel, and monitoring equipment. The Installers were keen to explain each step during installation and cleaned up their work area at the end of each day. Would highly recommend your product and crew to anyone considering a solar system.
My wife and I had a very good experience with Josh and HFX Solar. When we initially became interested in having a Solar System installed in our home we signed on with a big national Solar company. After a few months of poor communication, broken promises and no timeframe for our Solar install we opted out of the contract as there was a clause that said if they raised the price of the system we had that option.
After making one mistake I didn’t want to make another one so set out to get a few quotes from local Solar companies.
I was looking for a company that was very competitive price wise, with good communication and a timeframe of when the install would take place. As a retired electrician I am very particular about the quality of the workmanship and made it known to the contractors that quoted a sloppy job would not be tolerated and I’ll be monitoring it.
I also wanted a company that would be there for me if warranty work was ever required over the 25 year warranty period on all the equipment. The quotes I received were all competitive but only one stood out to me and it became obvious only HFX Solar could do the job to my expectations.
During the entire process communication was excellent and Josh did everything he could to ensure we were pleased with the job. It really meant a lot to him that my wife and I were happy with the job he did …and we were. James the electrician also did an excellent job and was very patient with me as I constantly inspected his work.
We went online yesterday with our 32 – LG405 panels and everything is working fantastic and are looking forward to not having a power bill.
Josh also installed a Sense Home Energy/Solar monitor that works very well with a Solar system and it gives you all your energy readings all on one screen. You can see how much power your house is using and how much your solar is generating and how much your buying or getting credit for..an amazing system !
Overall we had very positive experience with HFX Solar and consider myself very lucky to get out of my previous contract and discover Josh and HFX Solar.
Great price and workmanship, very good communication, top line equipment and warranty I can’t see how you could go wrong with this company and therefore highly recommend them.
Do you Like Saving Money?
Our electrical power for the next 25 years will cost $10,000.00. You read that right. Josh at Halifax Solar designed and installed a solar system that cost us $10,000.00 after the provincial rebate. That works out to $400.00 a year over 25 years. Our power in 2019 cost $1200.00. Therefore, the ROI (Return on Investment) for our solar project was 8.3 years. $10,000 investment divided by $1,200 annual bill = 8.3 years.
Wanna Fight Climate Change?
We do. The sun is giving us clean renewable power. The annual carbon offset for our system will be six tonnes of CO2, or, the equivalent of taking a large pickup truck o the road.
