Julie D.

“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.”

Kristopher K.

“I think solar is a good choice for farmers because it allows us to control something that’s going to happen in the future. As we see energy prices rise, we can put up a solar array on our farm, use the sunlight, use our land, and ultimately have a reduced electricity bill going into the future.

Solar saves our operation money… 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.”

Jenn D.

“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.”

Robert M.

“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.”

Andy C, St. Louis Life

“There were a couple of reasons why we chose StraightUp Solar… First of all, we liked the people. They were incredibly helpful, very informative of the process, very patient as we went through our bidding process. Number two, they were local. Third… the price was very competitive in comparison with other vendors.”

Dale R.

“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.”

“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.”

Dennis P.

“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.”

Sheri and Ed L.

“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.”

Greg T.

“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.”

Virginia W.

“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.”

Virginia W.
Alton, Illinois Homeowner

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

Chris and Mark

“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.”

Nathan C.

“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.”

Matt N.

“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.”

Dianne F.

“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!”

John L, Mountain Top Motor Co.

“I have had the pleasure of working with StraightUp Solar for my commercial solar installation at Mountain Top Motor Co.
I am very in-depth when it comes to interviewing companies to do business with. I asked a lot of hard questions and I wanted more information than your typical consumer. David at StraightUp Solar not only answered all my questions but taught me some things along the way. StraightUp Solar knew the equipment and the needs of my building more than any other company. They really put a lot of effort into building a quote and system even before a contract was awarded.
Through the installation they were great communicators and everything went smoothly. Very impressed with the entire process.”
