Personalized Design

Living in sunny Nevada made Randy a great candidate for solar. Ahead of discovering Monalee, Randy received quotes from a few different solar companies in his area. He chose Monalee because the process was simple and most of the heavy lifting would be taken care of for him. After his 13-panel system was up and running, his monthly utility bill went from $175 down to $10. Randy was happy with his experience and refers others to Monalee.

Install Timeline

  • Dec. 9, 2023 Project kickoff! As soon as we received Randy’s signed Monalee contract, we moved forward and scheduled his site survey.
  • Dec. 11, 2023 Site survey. This is an important part of our process because it gives us a clear overview of a homeowner’s electrical setup.
  • Dec. 20, 2023 Design completed. Our designers determined the safest and most cost efficient electrical design for Randy’s home.
  • Jan. 10, 2023 Permits approved. After compiling the info for Randy’s permitting and submitting his application, he received approval.
  • Jan. 18, 2023 Installation day! Randy’s solar system was successfully installed. Our install crews usually arrive at 8am to begin work.

The problem: high prices, slow execution

Before switching to solar energy, Randy was a bit skeptical about the process. He had been approached by a few ‘door knockers’ who presented quotes outside his budget. Each quote also displayed different pricing, making it hard to know which was the most accurate. When Randy came across Monalee, he was surprised by how much lower their rates were and how quickly his installation could be completed. Both price and projected timeline made Monalee a ‘no brainer’ for Randy.

The solution: install completed in just over a month

From start to finish, Randy’s Monalee solar system design and installation took just over a month. He paid for his installation upfront, as opposed to financing, and will recoup his investment in as little as four to five years. Compared to other solar companies, Randy saved more than $2,500 and his electricity bill dropped significantly. Randy was impressed by how quickly Monalee was able to move his project forward. He’s even recommended Monalee to several friends and family members.

    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.
