Testimonials

“The values of the company are values we really like. Everybody who has been associated with this clearly lives those values. So, we’re very impressed with the company, very glad to be related to it, and looking forward to being part of the tribe.”

— Chris and Mark, Bloomington, IL

“I am so excited about today’s installation. I have been waiting for this for years, and I have been walking on sunshine all day long… Grow Solar taught me that there are incentives and there are rebates and also there are ways to finance that can make it really affordable for normal people.”

— Jenn D.

“I come from a long line of coal miners, my brother even used to work at a coal mine. I would love to see these jobs converted over to alternative energy. I think this is a great opportunity for us as homeowners and business owners to gain control of our energy costs rather than be at the mercy of the utility.”

— Greg T.

“As a business person I think of solar energy as an investment. These days with tax incentives and some of the other assistance that is out there it’s just a no-brainer at this point… It truly is something that is very easy to do, it’s affordable, and the payoff is a lot shorter than it used to be.”

— Dennis P.

“We got the solar array installed in November of 2015. In the five years we have had our solar we have saved approximately $5,500 on our electric bills.”

— Dale R.

“The installation process was wonderful. The folks that actually did the installation were of the utmost professional caliber. Any questions they had about the property or about the install they asked me first and sought approval. There’s no other solar installer that I would recommend other than StraightUp Solar.”

— Nathan C.

“There have been a lot of solar installers pop up, and I am not saying if they are good or bad, but you do not know. You have to go through discovery levels to find out how reputable they are. The education and reassurance the Solarize program offered helped us decide to go solar.”

 

(StraightUp Solar was the chosen installer for the Solarize Godfrey program in 2016 when Virginia went solar.)

— Virginia W.

“StraightUp Solar helped us plan to get the right sized array for our business and thus far we have not had electricity charges to speak of since the solar panels came into production. StraightUp Solar also helped us with a REAP grant from the US Department of Agriculture, which helped reduce our overall project costs.”

— Kristopher K.

“The installation process was so incredibly easy. I couldn’t believe when I was asking questions it seemed like every answer was, “we take care of that.” When the team got here they were amazing… The people that were doing the job believed in what they were doing… Working with this company was just really a great experience all the way around.”

— Julie D

“The people at StraightUp [Solar] have made each and every step in this process so easy and stress free for us. We can honestly recommend StraightUp Solar to anyone who considers going solar.”

— Rainer G.

“Perhaps the biggest reason to be involved with solar energy overall is my belief in at least trying to lead an ethical lifestyle. Now that I’m retired…”

“The actual installation process went very well. I was very impressed by how they used a checklist system… so I always knew the process along the way… The company’s performance was overall good. I’d recommend them to anyone.”

— Robert M.

“Going solar couldn’t have been simpler.  We discussed all of our options and received all the information we needed to make our decision.  Straight Up Solar managed all of the permits, the site plan and the installation seamlessly.  We are now paying our electric company a monthly fee for the meter and that’s it.  I actually look forward to receiving the bill to see how many kWh I have banked!”

— Dianne F. Hudson, IL

“We were on the fence a little bit, just because of the cost. But as we looked further into it, it was like we cannot not do it. [StraightUp Solar] has been really good to answer all our questions, to give us the information we needed to look at, to give us things to think about. [StraightUp Solar] just listened and waited with us as we tried to make that decision, and we would not go back.”

“It’s been a great process. Highly recommend StraightUp.”

— - Sheri and Ed L., Belleville, IL

We decided to go solar because it’s a win/win. We had just moved into a new house and asked ourselves “are there any investments we need to make sooner than later?” We just so happen to have a great roof and clearance, so it made lots of sense.

— MATT N., BLOOMINGTON, IL

Met part of the StraightUp Solar team at the Fall weekend event at the Botanical Gardens. Interviewed and got quotes from four solar install companies. Had the most comfort level from StraightUp – installers are employees of company; had performed a reasonable number of installs to date; provided references to call; owners/management hold positions/belong to various solar industry associations.

— Residential Client, Ballwin

…assisted us in placing 25 kilowatt solar arrays on nine different buildings with no upfront costs to the District. The strategy orchestrated by StraightUp Solar allows the District to enjoy the benefits of solar energy through savings off of the electric bill.
