Our Testimonials

Suzanne Paton
We were really happy to join other Richmond residents in upgrading to solar!!  It was pretty easy and we feel much better about our energy use,
Suzanne Paton
- Richmond Resident
Sun Nerds and Burkley Weilburg:  Walked us through the whole process.  Explained the occasionally complicated technical and bureaucratic issues along with the steps that need to be completed.  He answered all our questions.  He followed-up to insure our satisfaction.  He arranged and organized the various components—installer, State of RI grant, financing so we had little to do.  Apex: Answered our questions quickly.  Very professional.  Had a team of knowledgeable folks.  Their experience in the Northeast, and in RI in particular were a real benefit.  Their installers did a great job. End result:  We are very satisfied with our system.  It is great to be generating our own power and sending the excess back to the grid, while reducing our impact.  My wife and I have been very involved with environmental issues all our professional lives, so having our solar system up and operating is very satisfying.  It is great to be able to go on-line to see how much power we have generated and the equivalent CO2 emissions we have saved.
