Personalized design

As a homeowner in sunny Florida, Carlos knew that going solar was a smart move. Many of his neighbors had already switched to solar energy for their homes, and Carlos was ready to do the same. He took his time researching and received quotes from a few companies including Monalee. As part of his solar project, Carlos had 22 Tier One solar panels installed and an Enphase iQ8+ inverter. The process with Monalee was fast and easy to follow.

The problem: lack of trust within the industry

Before signing up with Monalee for his home’s solar installation, Carlos spoke with other solar companies in his area. He also asked a few of his neighbors about their experiences switching to solar energy, and what pain points they experienced. When researching online, Carlos learned that many homeowners end up dealing with pushy ‘door knockers’ who just want to close a sale. He was ready to go solar but reading about these negative experiences gave him pause.

The solution: significant savings and quick install

As soon as Carlos signed up with Monalee, he felt a weight lifted off of him. He found Monalee’s pricing unbeatable compared to quotes he received from other solar companies in his area, and appreciated that his project included Tier One solar panels and other premium equipment at no additional cost. From start to finish, Carlos’ project took 47 days. Today, Carlos is saving money every month on his utility bill and regularly recommends Monalee to his friends and colleagues.

    Today I got my solar panels installed up and running just a month since I was talking to the representative helping me with my design! Pretty fast. I'm really happy with the help and support I got from Monalee. The install crew knows exactly what they are doing. They installed the whole system in about 4 hours. They kindly explain how the system will run and they show you how to use the app to monitor your own system! I totally recommend Monalee for your future installs or if you are a new customer and you are looking for the sign to go ahead and start saving money on electric bills. I say go for it!

    I cannot speak to anyone else's experience, but I can say I personally had an overall positive experience with Monalee, and referred them to my neighbor and another friend.

    This almost felt like too good to be true, squeezing it in before the NEM 2.0 cutoff and it being more affordable than the competitors by a good amount. Took maybe 4 months with permits to start installation, but otherwise an awesome experience.
