Synergy installed 2 Franklin backup batteries to our already existing solar array at our Sebastopol home. Owner and staff were all very knowledgeable, communicative and responsible. Workmanship was also impressive. No concerns at all about recommending them!

Phenominal service! We had a 37 panel system with battery backup installed during new construction. The Synergy Solar team are incredible teachers that patiently guided us through requirements and specifications. It was over a year from initial consultation to final system selection and their patience and willingness to educate were remarkable. The system has been installed for over a year and the on going system support with software upgrades and understanding PG&E billing has been so helpful and really unexpected. Cannot offer a higher recommendation for a contractor. Customer service before during and after installation has been impeccable.

Synergy Solar designed and installed a large solar panel system on our metal barn roof in July 2023.
From our first contact with the office to the final inspection, everyone without exception was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable.
Although other companies had told us that installation on a metal roof was not possible, Synergy Solar was not only able to design an outstanding system but installed it on our metal roof with no problem whatsoever.
During the construction/installation phase the team was courteous and meticulous about their work. At the end of each day, any and all debris was cleaned up as though they had not been there!
We are delighted with our system and HIGHLY RECOMMEND SYNERGY SOLAR for any solar need you might have. When we view our easy to use monitoring application, we can see that our panels are not only generating power for us but also helping out the grid. And, we no longer pay exorbitant monthly electric bills! We are so happy with our decision to install a solar array but more importantly that we chose SYNERGY SOLAR and Electrical Systems, Inc. We most highly recommend them!

Wow! Working with Synergy was an absolute pleasure. Mike and Justin were always available for questions and put a lot of thought into how to best design a system on a complex site. The installation team – Peter, Andrew, and Mateo – were awesome, they provided daily progress updates, did beautiful work, and are wonderful people to have around your home/property.

After disastrous experiences with two other companies, Synergy Solar delivered a great battery storage system to go with our solar panels. They even hooked up our generator so it could charge the battery if it got too low during a power outage. They were prompt, very professional, and took a great deal of care in getting everything right. They helped me with the software that monitors the system, and now we’re confident we can survive future power outages. They will be there promptly should the need arise, but in the meantime we’re enjoying the peace of mind the system brings.

This from a former building contractor who never gives reviews — Synergy is a first-rate operation. Mike, the owner, has tested every configuration he has been selling by first installing it in his own house. They feature an integrated system that was developed by a Petaluma company. They only install systems in Sonoma County, allowing Synergy to maintain great customer service. Our system (30 panels and 4 10kWh batteries was installed over about 7 days during the cold and rain of January 2023. We were educated about what the heck we were getting. They were always on time. They liked out dog. We passed all inspections the first time through. What else? Was it expensive? Yes, but so are eggs these days. Was it worth it? Definitely. Thanks again to Mike and his team.

We installed solar back in 2017 with Synergy and couldn’t be happier with them. COVID hit and I started working from home. When True-Up time came we were hit with a very high bill. Contacted Jeff and we figured out my working from home impacted the bill. Then comes Mike, so helpful in working up a plan for additional panels and educates us on the battery back-up, and extremely patient with my seven hundred questions. Nicole kept us inform as to where we were in the process, AND following up to make sure all paperwork was signed and submitted in a timely manner. Installation time….here comes Peter, Mateo and Andrew. Wonderful crew, polite, professional, and they had a great sense of humor. Peter knows his stuff and was extremely patient in listening and answering multiple questions asked multiple times. Looking forward to when we move over to the battery, which should be soon.

Synergy Solar exceeded all expectations. They guided us through each step of the process, provided realistic time frames for completion, and were always prompt in answering questions and addressing concerns. I called Synergy after having some disappointing initial contacts with the big national firms (you know who they are). Part of my due diligence before selecting a solar provider involved a customer satisfaction search; Google “customer reviews for _________” (plug in a name). See if there any common threads that form the bulk of the complaint issues. Try not to confuse “PRICE” with “VALUE”. If you value competence, professionalism, timely responses to your questions/concerns and a job done right, interview Synergy Solar. Don’t forget, the real work starts after the national company’s salesperson has moved on to the next potential buyer. Read those reviews, then decide. Synergy Solar is a great local company (Sebastopol) with a proven track record. We couldn’t be more pleased.

Everyone at Synergy is very professional and easy to work with. When the Sonoma county inspector came out to sign off the install he told me that Synergy always did the best job of any company that he had inspected.

The Synergy Solar team makes the process as easy and simple as possible. I used the SGIP incentive programs and have used them for both solar panels and solar batteries. They are incredibly helpful and responsive during the process and do as much as they can to drive the process with PG&E, SGIP and local officials. I’m extremely happy with my system and the quality of work. They do a much better job than many at hiding pipes and connections so the panels and the battery have a very clean look.

Could not be happier with Synergy Solar. We met with 3 local solar companies. Jeff at Synergy performed the most detailed inspection & discussion of our site and options. We immediately liked his knowledge & professionalism. He was the only one who actually got on our roof with his testing equipment. SCEIP then helped us with a true apples-to-apples comparison of the 3 bids. We chose Synergy. Michael & team did an exceptional job installing the system as scheduled. Our inspector said he enjoys seeing Synergy on his schedule because they do a good job. We’ve been up and running for about 2 weeks, and today they installed our EV charging station. Their entire team is wonderful and take pride in what they do.

Simply stated, Synergy Solar = the BEST!
I needed a solar installer I could trust to, not only do a clean job on my 30-year old concrete tile roof, but an installer that would be around after the job was done. I wanted the installer to use American Made products – Synergy Solar installed American Made panels (Solar World/Oregon), and inverters (Enphase/Petaluma). And I wanted the system to look good – clean – it does.
Jeff laid out options for financing in a matter-of-fact, clearly understandable manner; I hear he saves his hustle for the volleyball court.
When Mike’s installers arrived, as scheduled, they set up a professional (good housekeeping seal of approval) work space in our tightly spaced residential HOA and went to work without disturbing my wife’s home business, or my neighbors – I know, I asked around.
Since activated, the system has performed as designed, producing the net-negative system I requested. Jeff also advised me on how to set up my EV for automatic off-peak charging – good call, big savings.
If I had to do this over again I would go Synergy Solar without hesitation. Synergy Solar, the BEST!

Synergy Solar was recommended by our roofer as the only solar company he had ever come across worthy of his seal of approval. We were not disappointed. From start to finish they were professional and top notch in every way. In fact, they have educated us so well that when we drive down the street we can pick out solar installations where the contractor has cut corners, or used inferior materials. They even were able to coordinate with P.G.E. and complete our needed electrical panel upgrade when we ran into some snags with our electrician. We recommend Synergy Solar highly and after you meet with them you will understand why as well.

We spent a fair amount of time researching solar energy and quite a few solar companies. We used Solar Sonoma Co Clean Energy Advocate program. Geoff at SSCEA was supportive and helpful. Based on our needs he gave us three local vendors who used local and US made products to choose from We ended up narrowing it down to two local solar companies. Both were very helpful with answering all of my questions. When it came down to it, we chose a company that made themselves accessible and honest. In the end we went with Synergy.

Not only is Jeff incredibly knowledgeable, about all things Solar, he is the owner, not a Sales Person working on commission. Furthermore Jeff is highly involved with solar energy in both the county and the state. We liked their methodology and product set they used.

Mike is the other owner and in charge of the installation process itself. He too is knowledgeable, professional, EXTREMELY responsive!

In addition, they were willing to work with us to get the best layout of the solar panels as well as the power panel change we needed. Chaz and Michael did a professional install which was clean and the panel placement on our roof was not tacky looking at all! Furthermore the work they did with the electric panel replacement was TOP NOTCH.

During the install they were not intrusive to our family and kept us informed from start to finish!

Without a doubt, I would recommend Synergy to anyone thinking about solar.

We just had our solar installation completed by Synergy.

We initially had them out for a quote a year ago but they discovered some roof issues that first needed to be fixed. Jeff from Synergy suggested a roofer who did a fantastic job on the roof.

So this year, we went ahead with solar. Jeff and Mike really are experts and made us very comfortable with the technology. Their proposal scoped out exactly what we would need and they explained everything very clearly and even came out a second time to clarify things. Jeff told us it would take at least a month to get us installed but they got the panels fast and were able to squeeze us in to their schedule within a couple of weeks.

They did a seamless job with the installation. The panels looks great and they did a good job cleaning up things.

One really cool thing is the system connects via wi-fi with a website that shows how much is produced real-time. Amazing how much is produced in mid-October when the sun is already low. Even cooler is that our panels will cover our entire electric bill for the year and that we are helping the environment.

Thank you Synergy for making this complicated process simple, quick and worry free! The owners Jeff and Mike are great to work with from beginning to end as well as their crew.
From the first meeting with Jeff we were very pleased with his review of solar systems in general, what we could expect from them and what we could expect from a solar system on our home and how we would interface with PG&E. The information was accurate, easy to understand and made me feel easy with the choice to go solar. Jeff was also the only person to do a technical and thorough evaluation of our roof and sun exposure during the initial visit to ensure that his first and only proposal was as accurate as possible with no conjecture, guessing or best case scenarios. Jeff made the decision to go with them easy to make.
The installation experience was just as good as the site visit and proposal. Mike and his installation crew including Chaz were great to work with at our house. They were on time, clean, quiet and accommodating. They had our system up and running in two days and it was as advertised with no issues. The work was clean and you can’t even tell that solar was installed on our house by looking at it from the front. Mike even stayed at our house longer than needed to help with an electrical issue in our house. That’s customer service! Thanks to everyone at Synergy for making the decision to go solar a smooth and cost effective experience.

Synergy installed my system in 2011 and I have since produced just under 30MWh. Unfortunately a roof leak developed under one of the roof mounts (which I’ve since learned is extremely rare). The leak was due to some built up redwood debris on my roof. I called Jeff – Mike showed up the next day with an evaluation, then scheduled a repair that same week. The repair required some sheet rock work as well, which Mike quickly dispatched. I came home and everything was done and the leak is long gone. It was that easy – I wish more companies would support their work this well!

The entire experience with Synergy Solar was excellent. Our metal roof and new deck cover was not the usual solar installation. Jeff worked through the planning with us to get the design we envisioned. He made sure that the arrangements with the metal roofing company were coordinated and came off well. Mike and his team did a fine job installing the panels, even taking special consideration for cable routing underneath visible deck cover panels. Everyone from Synergy was friendly and a pleasure to work with.

Quality and attention to detail comes from Synergy Solar’s owners being on the job with their crew. Nothing beats this level of commitment to their customers. They rate at the top when it comes to home improvement contractors.

Recently I had an aging pair of inverters updated with a new SMA inverter and some reconfiguring of panel string wiring.
From owners Jeff Mathias and Michael Pane, to their crew of Chaz and Marvin, I had outstanding service. They came on time, were knowledgable, attentive and very easy to deal with. They spent additional time to sort out web connect issues and really put in time and effort to make things work.
Could not be happier with the experience and their service.

Synergy made going solar a very pleasant and easy experience. Jeff has a very thorough knowledge of both the technical and the financial part of the process. The installation crew was timely and very professional, we couldn’t ask for more.

Our thirty panel system was actually more efficient than the original estimate. We are delighted that our net usage for the first year was ZERO! I highly recommend my friends and neighbors contact Jeff and staff at Synergy if they are considering going solar and hopefully many will.

We had problems with our inverter and we’ were not sure who to turn to. The company who installed the system is no longer in business (and in all honesty were less reliable than we hoped). Jeff came out the very same day we called to diagnose the problem and within a week they had replaced our faulty inverter. I just wish we had known about them for our install.

We were impressed with the knowledge Jeff has of the solar photovoltaic systems.He communicated very well with a keen ability to simplify the complexities of the installation of a system utilizing solar energy. Jeff walked us through the whole process each step of the way. We were also very impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of all the workers that came out to install the system. We were surprised and happy to know that part of our purchase served as a generous contribution to our local schools.
I would highly recommend Synergy to anyone wanting a quality product with top notch service. You will feel good about the product, the service, bettering our environment and saving on your energy costs. All around great feeling!

I was completely satisfied with working with Jeff and everyone else at Synergy. All the work was done excellently and exactly on the time table specified. In fact, my system was up and running ahead of schedule. I was especially pleased with having everything explained to me in an cogently and intelligently. I did not know much about solar energy systems, but do have a background in science. Jeff explained things to me at the appropriate technical level and anticipated many of my questions and concerns. He was articulate, smart and comfortable to interact with. He took care of all the business aspects including permits and communications with PGE. He made the entire process easy and stress free. I was also delighted with Synergy\’s generosity in contributing $500 to Analy High School\’s Science Department. I would enthusiastically recommend SYNERGY to any homeowner who is considering solar energy. Moreover, he has assured me that he will come out and visit after the system has been working for one year. I appreciate that commitment.

Synergy could not be a better company. They are local and small and provide fantastic service. Due to a job postponement, they moved our project into the resulting vacancy and were able to draw up the plans and obtain a permit within a day. The entire installation took only a day-and-a-half. The workers were prompt, quiet, courteous, and efficient. They cleaned up the job site daily and were a pleasure to have around our home. Jeff\’s knowledge and professionalism are admirable, and his entire process from beginning to end was stellar. We are left with a great new solar system and a battery of documents reflecting every step of the operation.

Three years ago I interviewed five solar companies from all over the Bay Area to install solar panels at my mother\’s house in Sebastopol. Synergy Solar was the last company I talked to, and easily became our first choice. Their knowledge, sincerity, professionalism, easy going friendliness, and flexibility were more important than going with the lowest bid; and both my mother and I are very happy we made that choice. Though they had no prior experience with the Tigo Internet monitoring system I asked they install with their panels, they quickly grasped the concept and made arrangements with Tigo. We have had the system for three years now, and it has outperformed their mostly accurate estimates of yearly output power. Their availability and after service support has been excellent. I wear their gift Synergy Solar T-shirt and cap with pride.

Synergy Solar have just completed the installation of our solar PV system to our home in Sebastopol. We could not be happier with Synergy.
Jeff’s thoroughness and expertise were evident from his first visit to our home. He analyzed our usage, explained the best system options to us and then presented a written quote within a day or two, complete with payback analysis for the system for both self-financed or SCEIP financed options.
Installation was scheduled for 3 weeks later and was performed by a professional,polite and productive crew over 3 days. Their work was tidy and performed with care, skill and attention to detail.
Best of all….Synergy made a $500.00 donation to our kids’ school. How cool is that.

I investigated local companies and asked for several quotes. I chose Synergy because their representative, Jeff Mathias, was non-intrusive )no car salesman) and knowledgeable as well as competitive. Jeff advised upgrading the breaker box and pointed out a few other technical issues. Also included was a connection to a solar water heater installed at the same time. Synergy always stayed in contact by phone or email and confirmed all work executed on my property. It there was a open question, Jeff handled all that with a call or email in no time – the communication was great. The Synergy crew came in and had the installation done in a day. The entire installation was executed as expected and on time. All garbage was cleaned up and the quality of the installation was great. All in all, I have to say it was a great experience to work with Synergy, and I would work with them anytime again. I would like to advise anyone else to look at this company when it comes to solar or other electrical jobs.

Even though the weather didn’t always cooperate, the job was completed in a very timely manner. As far as the financial benefits go, my bill went from $650 to $118 and that’s in the middle of winter. I can’t wait to see what this system will do in the middle of summer!
