To whom this may concern, The cost of electricity in Gainesville and Alachua county has been going up and up with no limit in sight. So, for our new “GREEN” home we decided to install solar panels and solar water heater. We shopped the local market and decided on Pure energy Solar for several reasons. Pure Energy Solar provided the lowest cost, professional installation , friendly and timely responses to our questions. Wayne Irwin of Pure Energy Solar has been very attentive throughout the installation process. He helped us with the “Feed in Tariff” program with GRU and has explained the tax advantages and addressed all our inquiries on a timely and friendly manner. We do recommend Pure Energy Solar for anyone who may be interested to save money on power bills and help with the environment.

It was a great pleasure to deal with Pure Energy Solar. A company’s reputation is earned over many years through the quality of their work and their customers’ experience. I was drawn to the company because of your record of community involvement and your history of honesty and craftsmanship. My expectations, while high, were greatly exceeded. The 78kW system is functioning flawlessly, was installed rapidly by intelligent, caring and clean workers and is surprisingly beautiful. Most important to me, the level of trust on both sidessides was so great, that I never worried about anything. I knew that you worried so I didn’t have to. You went far beyond the usual vendor to ensure that our production did not have an interruption in power. Your office staff was exceptional. There were no issues that dampened my enthusiasm for Pure Energy Solar. Congratulations on building such a fine company and thank you for helping Alta Systems and our community become more sustainable.
When I began building my new house, I contacted Wayne Irwin at Pure Energy Solar about installing solar. Pure Energy Solar was the only company I would allow to touch my new house. I had only heard good things about this company, and found all those good things to be true. They coordinated with my builder Tim Flanagan, and then did it all. From submitting plans for permitting, to coordinating everything with GRU, to giving me the forms I’ll need for income taxes. Now I get to watch my meter go backwards! Thanks Wayne and Pure Energy Employees!
Wayne and his crew of experts at Pure Energy Solar installed a complete home solar energy system at our home, located in the country. The system connects to the electric company and also has battery backup. With this arrangement we have no more brief power outages, and also back-up in case of a long storm. Wayne has been available to answer questions and to tweak the system. We are very happy with Pure Energy’s professional and respectful service, and glad that we can be an example of a more sustainable life-style.

Dear Pure Energy Solar, The solar panel project that Pure Energy Solar took on for us was one of the best construction experiences we have had. The project was on time every step of the way, and the crew and Wayne Irwin were extremely professional in their conduct at all times. For once we had a contractor who left things as they found them, with the obvious exception of the panels on the roof. The solar panels have been operating for a little over a month, and they are performing as Wayne predicted they would. We did our research and Pure Energy Solar came out on top of the competition. In our eyes, they certainly lived up to their ranking. Sincerely,
I first heard about Pure Energy Solar while listening to NPR one morning and decided to inquire about GRU’s FIT program. This led me to Wayne. I have only great things to say about Wayne and the company he represents. From his initial visit to the final delivery of the keys (aka Sunnybeam), he has been very helpful, patient and accommodating. He has answered every question and concern I had. His knowledge and professionalism exceeded my expectations. He worked with me to come up with a system plan that I could afford and in the time frame that I required. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of helping the planet go solar. In fact I have already done so, I told my good friend and neighbor about Pure Energy Solar and within a month Wayne was out here again to install a system for him.

Dear Pure Energy Solar, Jim and I want to let you know that our recent experience with your company, Pure Energy Solar, was great! You and your employees were very professional. Everything from start to finish was performed to our high standards. You were always available by phone or email and answered all of our questions. We had gotten other estimates for our solar project but decided to go with you because of your strong background and superior product. Feel Free to contact us on future customers’ behalf or if you’re in the neighborhood. Sincerely,
I welcomed the opportunity to participate in the Renewable Energy Program. Pure Energy Solar made it an easy reality from beginning to end. On these hot sunny days my solar panels send energy back to the grid, a good feeling. Thank you.

To Everyone: Our new PV system is exceptional in appearance and performance. We waited for several months before submitting this feedback to insure that we were fully satisfied with the system’s performance. We chose Pure Energy Solar to do our 10kw PV Solar System after screening many different companies because they were highly professional and competitive. We also visited and talked to a couple of satisfied customers who had glowing reviews. We learned of a new energy program by Florida utilities that motivated us to make this investment. Our power company, Progress Energy paid us $2/w about 10 weeks after the system was installed. That rebate plus federal tax credits plus the money saved indicated that the system would pay back in 10 years. That does not account for the increased value of our home or the fantastic return in subsequent years. That same utility program starts again this fall. As a technically minded person, I asked many questions and looked into system components. I’m totally convinced that SMA inverters are the very best ones for Florida and that component is the most critical part of the system. In my opinion, any highly rated solar panels will work very well. The Pure Energy Solar crew was totally hard working and professional. My ground mount solar panel arrays went up very quickly and all the workmanship was neat and clean. We think that it looks fantastic in our back yard on our 1.3 acre lot. Every aspect of this installation went beautifully with Pure Energy Solar and we will always be grateful to Wayne Irwin for helping us make this happen. His crew was amazing. We would strongly recommend this company for anyone considering solar power and welcome anyone to ask questions or view it. In fact, we have never dealt with any contractor of this high caliber and quality anywhere.
Based on my experiences with solar contractors in Gainesville as of 2011, Pure Energy Solar was by far the best contractor to work with. Their installation of my photovoltaic was done on schedule, and with attention to details in the installation. The overall appearance of the system was very clean, the penetration through the soffit was carefully cut and caulked, the piping was nicely concealed, the inverters and meters were tightly positioned rather than spread all over the side of the house, the panels were carefully positioned on the roof so as to provide access to both skylights and the solar hot water panels. The employees of Pure Energy Solar were a pleasure to work with. After the system was installed, the blue tooth transmitter on one of the inverters was found to be defective; they immediately replaced the defective chip. I highly recommend Pure Energy Solar.

Pure Energy Solar, Inc., with Wayne Irwin in charge, started installing a 5.8 kw, high efficiency, photo voltaic, solar-to-electricity system on the roof of my house on March 7, 20ll. It started putting electricity into the GRU grid on April 14th. It seems to have performed flawlessly and has exceeded my expectations. This entire experience with Pure Energy Solar has been pleasant and efficient, from the initial roof inspection to the final GRU permits, inspections and connections. I have every reason to believe that this will continue for many years.
Dear Pure Energy Solar: My experience with Pure Energy Solar was fabulous from my first phone call. Wayne quickly explained to me that I could put solar panels on my house even if I wasn’t living in it. He completed all the paperwork for me and brought it by for me to sign–and did it twice more when I changed my mind about the size of the system – twice! He was accommodating at every step. When the tenants expressed concern about the possibility of the electricity being off for 3 hours, he made arrangements to bring in a generator to alleviate their concerns. The system was installed a week earlier than he anticipated, not later as with most contractors. And it was on line before Dec. 31, as he promised. My experience with Pure Energy Solar could not have been better.

Dear Wayne and Pure Energy Solar: My wife and I wanted to thank you and your company for the incredible attention to detail, honesty, and integrity provided during your installation of our solar array. From the very first time we called to ask general questions about solar energy, to the true turn key service provided in performing our installation, through your post installation evaluation to ensure our system was performing optimally, Pure Energy Solar exemplified the meaning of customer service. In a world where many businesses are capable of providing any number of quality products, we feel strongly that the one thing separating the “best from the rest” is customer services. Knowing that our system was installed by a company with such dedication to their work gives me great confidence that our system will both reduce our use of non-renewable energy and provide a reliable return on our investment for many years to come. Without question, we have and will continue to recommend Pure Energy Solar to all who inquire about solar. All the best,

Dear Pure Energy Solar, I knew right away that Pure Energy Solar was the company of choice for installing my solar panels for GRU’s FIT program. Pure Energy Solar provided me with all of the necessary information to make an informed decision and then handled all aspects of the job from start to finish. The project was fast and easy, and I am very pleased with the results.
Dear Wayne, I want to thank you again for the great job that you and your team did to engineer and install our Solar PV System. It is easy to see that you know your stuff when it comes to Solar PV. I wanted a system with good structural integrity, high energy output, good looks, and expandability at a reasonable cost. You exceeded my expectations. I’ve had several nice comments about its appearance. Your industry knowledge, technical expertise and professionalism in working with clients and putting together a team of like minded staff should ensure you continued success. Keep up the great work Wayne! Best Regards,
