Reputable Solar installers on the eastern seaboard

Good evening all,

It's time to pull the lever and get a solar install added to the 28W. I am wondering if you wouldn't mind providing feedback on reputable solar installers on the eastern seaboard. While I would prefer within the mid-Atlantic states, I'll travel north to New England or south to Florida if needed.

I'd like to find dealers/installers with good reputation along all the major facets -- price fairness both ways, quality of install and support of the products long term.

Thanks for any feedback you might offer,

Ian

I believe I may have (entirely through my own fault) burned a bridge there last year; so looking at other options if any exist.

Same search

Just saw your post from March. Any luck? We are in NC attempting the same plan. Not finding too many options. At least not yet.

Lewster it is! AMSolar has a new supplier in the lithium battery environment he's has been proof testing towards providing me an estimate hopefully later in the fall.

Solar update

Just wanted to update our solar installer search and final installation. After much searching we went to Capital City Customs in Raleigh, NC. I had traded many emails with both AM Solar and Lew directly. We were looking into the trip to Naples as our best but also most complicated option. A trip to Raleigh and a meeting with owners Dan and Lisa Matthews changed our minds. We picked up our Safari 27 last week. We are extremely happy with the finished work.
This was not their first solar rodeo. We brought most of the hardware with us purchased from AM. But they did all the install top to batteries. AND they even pulled out a roof dent from the previous owner for free.
Anyone in the Va., NC or SC area looking for solar installation should talk with them. CCC is known for its restoration and custom interior work on Airstreams.
More than happy to pm pictures or info.
BIG thanks to Lew and AM Solar for enormous help with this project. It would not have happened without their input. Come January the wife and I will be enjoying our Safari plugged in only to the sun.
