Personalized design

No stranger to solar, Robert already had a good idea of the type of system he wanted for his Menifee, California home. He had done his research and created a shortlist of possible companies to move forward with. After several conversations, however, he wondered whether his unique needs would be met. In choosing Monalee, Robert received transparency about where he was in the process at any given stage and what was coming up next.

Install Timeline

  • September 19, 2023 Project kickoff! As soon as we received Robert’s signed Monalee contract, we moved forward and scheduled his site survey.
  • September 24, 2023 Site survey. This is an important part of our process because it gives us a comprehensive overview of a customer’s electrical setup.
  • October 2, 2023 Design completed. Our designers determined the safest and most cost efficient electrical design for Robert’s home.
  • October 6, 2023 Permits approved. After compiling info needed for Robert’s permit application, we submitted the paperwork and received approval.
  • November 10, 2023 Installation day! Robert’s solar system was successfully installed. Our install crews usually arrive at 8am to begin work.

The problem: long, projected timelines

Before going solar with Monalee, Robert spoke with other solar companies in his local area. His goal was to better understand pricing, projected timelines, and financing options. Robert wanted a partial re-roof where his solar panels would be placed and a solar battery for his system. After receiving quotes from competitors, he wasn’t sold on the price or the specific equipment being used for installations. Robert wanted a straightforward process with easy-to-track milestones.

The solution: curated projects that fit his needs

Robert stumbled upon Monalee by chance, and was intrigued by their competitive pricing. He received quotes from other companies and all of them were significantly higher than what Monalee offered. He spoke with a Customer Success Manager and explained his unique needs: a roof replacement of the area where solar panels would be installed, as well as a battery so he could be energy independent. From start to finish Robert’s project was completed in 53 days.

    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.
