I’m making electricity. When I am sitting in a meeting I smile and say to myself, “I’m making electricity”. Last week I was 5000 miles away from my home and I said to myself, “I’m making electricity”. In the late afternoon I sit and watch the silent panels on my roof and I can almost see the photons exciting electrons to be swept away to the inverter. I make electricity all the time, thanks to Wayne and Pure Energy Solar. In the beginning I had many questions for Wayne and he tirelessy answered all of them. It took me a while to determine the exact configuration I wanted, but Wayne came out to the house several times to help me sort through the options. The installation was done in a timely manner; first the rails, then panels and conduit, connecting panels and pulling wires, lastly the inverter and throwing the switch. Ever watch an electric utility meter turn backwards? Very cool. Wayne’s crew left no mess, which was much appreciated. Lastly, Pure Energy handed me a packet with the state rebate forms filled out and an 8″ by 10″ glossy photograph of the system. I was very pleased with the pre-installation support, professional installation (including permitting), contact assistance with my utility, completed rebate forms, and performance of my system. Did I mention that I’m making electricity as I’m typing this letter? Thanks Wayne.
From my very first phone call to Pure Energy Solar, I was impressed. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted, what I needed or what it would cost. Wayne was very patient with me and was able to very quickly assess the situation and give me an idea of the cost and what I could expect from spending the money. I didn’t call back right away; it was a big decision to make. As I considered my options financially, I also considered the very concerning messages coming from our government and how decisions being made in Washington would affect my energy future. All things considered, there were all pros and no cons to my decision to install solar panels. I called Wayne back. Within one week, his company brought me the contract, got structural facts about my house, applied for and paid for county permits and arranged for me and Pure Energy Solar to work with my electric utility. When Wayne found out that my particular utility charged $100 to tie into their lines, he took $100 off the cost of my installation. Within three weeks, my panels were installed, inspected and operational. The transition was seamless. I see daily how much energy I get free from the sun, how much I sell back to the utility and best of all, how many pounds of CO2 I’ve saved from the environment. I also get thousands back from the Federal Government when I file my taxes for 2009. It’s a no-brainer! Thanks,
When businesses come to my home, I want to work with someone that’s skilled, well-organized, prompt, fair, and responsive. Pure Energy Solar delivers on all fronts. Working with Wayne Irwin is a pleasure. He is very professional, always courteous, and goes the extra yard to answer questions, provide information, and make sure that you are wholly satisfied. It makes a difference, as well, that Pure Energy is a local company and that Wayne stands by his word of standing by his work. Who wants a fly-by-night operation, or some sub-contractor that’s here today and gone tomorrow, drilling holes in your roof? With Pure Energy Solar, you get the security of knowing that the buck stops with Wayne, and that means you won’t be taken advantage of, or disappointed.
In September, 2009, we had a 4,200 watt solar power system installed by Pure Energy Solar. Wayne, the owner, was very thorough in his explanations of the system, the cost, how it would be installed, and every other thing I could think of to ask him. The system was installed in less than 2 days and it looks great and works great. The service was incredible and we got a great price for the system. It cost what Wayne said it would cost and not a penny more.
We chose Pure Energy Solar to install our system because we wanted a knowledgeable, reputable, local company. Wayne Irwin is passionate about solar energy and his company reflects his passion and commitment. Using his technical experience and expertise, combined with top quality material, competent and careful installers and high standards of work and service, he provides excellent service with precision and integrity. He also serves as a local leader in educating the public about the benefits of solar energy. Think globally – act locally by choosing Pure Energy Solar, we recommend them enthusiastically!
My wife and I decided to install PV solar panels on our house a little over six months ago. Wayne Irwin from Pure Energy Solar came by and met with us, took us up on the roof, tested the possibilities, and explained everything to us clearly and intelligently. He also explained all the incentives, rebates, etc., that three different levels of government offer for taking the solar plunge. It made sense environmentally and economically for us to do it, and Wayne promised quick and painless installation as well as processing all of the necessary forms for local incentives (feed-in tariff) and state rebates. He followed through on every promise without any prompting. The City’s approval followed soon thereafter, and we became one of the first households in the city to be “on the grid” and to qualify for the feed-in tariff. I recommend Pure Energy Solar enthusiastically to anyone considering a PV solar installation. Pure Energy is local, too, and that makes a big difference. There are many out-of-town firms now trying to get into the business here in Gainesville. Who knows how good they are, and why support a company who will spend their profits outside of our economy?
It is with pleasure that I write this documentation of my experience with Wayne Irwin and the Pure Energy Solar team. I shopped around a lot before choosing a company, so my perspective is from a comprehensive overview of Pure Energy and their competition. Wayne offered me references before I asked for them and they were all glowing. He was always punctual, knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. I was also impressed with his honesty (“turnkey” really means turnkey when he refers to the costs of installation and equipment) his kindness, and his willingness to hear our concerns and validate them. Wayne REALLY cares about the planet and what happens to it. He is easy to deal with, as is the whole team. I cannot say enough how pleased we are with Pure Energy and how much we are looking forward to our next bill from GRU! Sincerely,
My wife and I would like to take the time to thank you for your professional and personal interest that you took in helping us with our residential solar panel purchase located in Gainesville, FL. You gave us your undivided time for all our questions we had, and didn’t make us feel at all pressured in purchasing from you. You and your team made us feel at ease when we came to the decision to purchase. The time you took in explaining the installation and operation of the Solar Panels was very informative and educational. It is always nice to do business and have the feeling like you have gained a friend after the purchase. I love my Solar Panels. Thank You,

One of the simple pleasures of living in Gainesville, FL is that there exists a number of local tradespeople who truly believe in and enjoy their line of work. In no instance have I found this more true than in my dealings with Wayne Irwin and his staff at Pure Energy Solar. They are professional, courteous, and intelligent folks fully committed to helping people practice a more sustainable way of life. At our first meeting, Wayne patiently explained the costs and benefits of a PV solar installation to me in a straightforward and pressure-free manner. All of my subsequent inquiries were handled in the same way. Wayne, Travis, and Tom of Pure Energy Solar did all the installation work. No subcontracting. What a great outfit. If you are interested in solar energy solutions, I highly recommend Pure Energy Solar.
My husband and I had Pure Energy Solar install a 4.8 KW solar unit at our residence in the Fall of 2007. Wayne and his staff were very knowledgeable, personable, and easy to work with. They came when they said they would, worked hard, and were a pleasure to talk to. The job was done quickly and professionally, and we have been enjoying the results ever since. We would highly recommend Wayne Irwin and Pure Energy Solar.
I am writing to say thank you for your counsel, service, and installation. Your work is appreciated in keeping the wiring clean and tidy (even in the attic). I am proud to have the bragging rights of being your youngest customer to date. It has been a pleasure to deal with you.
Our upgraded solar system has now been operational for five months and has performed well. We use minimal power on sunny days and return excess power to the grid. We want to commend you and your staff on a job well done. You performed in a timely manner, respected our property by cleaning up the work area, were responsive to our needs, and did an excellent job explaining all aspects of the system. We highly recommend your services to others looking to establish a solar system or upgrading an existing system. With many thanks for a job well done,
Pat and I could not have asked for a more professional group of people to install our solar system! Your team was so kind and courteous. Thanks for taking the time to explain everything throughout the process of installation. Best wishes to you and your awesome company! Please feel free to use us as references. Gratefully,
