We used Smart Solar Energy out of Bend to get solar panels installed on our home. We were referred to them by a friend. Jordan was very knowledgeable and thoroughly explained the pros and cons of going solar. In the end, the pros outweighed the cons and we went solar! The pricing was very competitive and the installation was done professionally. Overall, we’re very happy with our decision and are glad to be saving some money as a result of it!

We’ve had such a wonderful experience with Smart Solar Energy installing solar on our home in Seattle. They have been extremely helpful, quick to serve, and very friendly. We were nervous about dealing with a shady company, but we really lucked out with them. I recommend them a million times over. Everyone from sales to installation has been amazing.

The search for solar is a daunting and scary task. With so many choices and so many options it makes it tough to decide which direction to go. Thankfully I came across Smart Solar Energy in Bend, Oregon. The salesperson was incredibly honest and straightforward. They addressed my worries, were extremely professionally and responded quickly. I would definitely recommend. Oh and the work was done very nicely, panels look great and the crew was very clean and my place was left spotless after all was said and done.

I care about saving money. I care about the investment known as my home. Working with Smart Solar Energy has been such a pleasure! As someone who cares about the environment, it’s important to me to make sure the company I go with feels the same way. They took care of everything. The process of getting the roof surveyed and getting solar panels was pain and stress free. I highly recommend Smart Solar Energy out of Bend because of the quality and respect they provided to me in this process of getting solar panels on my roof. As Oregon is progressing towards renewable energy, I’m glad Smart Solar Energy is the team I’m with. They work with you and for you. I highly recommend them.

Smart Solar Energy did a bang up job designing and installing our system and electric vehicle charger here in Portland. They met all of our needs and thoroughly communicated installation expectations. Despite the challenges we were faced with (solar on roof of our home and garage, relocating electrical service to garage, burying power line so it didn’t go over the backyard anymore) they went above and beyond for us. Looks great on the house, no more ugly power line over the backyard, and our electricity bills are $0. Thanks, Smart Solar Energy!

Smart Solar Energy out of Seattle is a first rate company with highly professional crews. Every aspect from the sale, installation, electrical company details, city permits and flipping the ON switch went seamlessly and was 1 month ahead of the original timeline. Jordan S sold us the system and was knowledgeable, respectful and low key. No heavy pressure. They did our home walk through including the in-service for our 24 hr solar system monitoring. He answered all of our questions and explained everything in detail. Thank you Smart Solar Energy for state of the art, updated, high tech Solar System that is producing more than initially predicted. We have saved 19.73 trees in one week!
