Best Reviewed Solar Contractor in the Central Coast

We're proud to be the top rated choice for solar installation and service with over 16 years of residential, commercial, and ground mount installations within the Ojai, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Santa Paula counties.

Another company told us solar wouldn't work on our house because of the trees on the south side, but Tom worked out a plan for panels on the west and east sides. They were installed quickly, efficiently and on time… Our panels are up and running and we are very happy!

I did a lot of shopping around, starting with the big national companies first. After I had those bids I looked through a lot of reviews to get a couple local companies to give me a bid. I expected the smaller local guys to be able to give me better tech but cost more. I was very pleasantly surprised to get better tech and a better price from California Solar Electric.

All work was done in a timely manner. Plenty of feed back from company employees about products, how system works and what to expect from S.C.E. etc. Fast and very clean. Also very helpful with the county permitting process.
