The installation team is great and work done in order. The crew notifies us for the best possible actual location of the panel that meets the requirements and Sofia is great on providing necessary information for the install schedule and inspection.

I had a great experience and learned a lot about solar panels from Smart Green. Everything was done so smoothly starting from signing the contract through installation. I would definitely recommend Smart Green to anyone. Jo-Ann was very helpful and responsive.
