Abender Corporation Overview
Abender Corporation is a small-sized solar panel installation company with a primary focus on commercial and specialty installations. The company’s headquarters are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but also has offices in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
There’s a lack of online customer reviews, which is unusual for a company established in 2007. The reviews found, however, were all positive, with particular praise for carrying out difficult and challenging installations. The relatively high revenue for a small company of five people suggests that Abender Corporation’s prices are on the higher end, which is to be expected for commercial or tailor-made solar panel installations.
Abender Corporation services and features
Abender Corporation offers only off-grid solutions and takes care of concept design and installation alike.
- Solar Panels: Abender Corporation maintains that when it comes to solar energy, it’s more about design know-how rather than which solar panels are being used or other equipment considerations, meaning that various solar panel types are used. The type of structure or project in question will determine which brand or type of solar panel is eventually placed
- Inverters: However, when it comes to inverters, it appears that Abender Corporation works with two brands in particular; SMA Solar Technology AG and Fronius International GmbH. The former is rated quite highly for its inverters of the Sunny Boy and Sunny Tripower lines, though Fronius International is also well-rated, there were a few online complaints about failing components
- Electrical & Construction: Abender Corporation has a strong electrical and structural engineering background, meaning lighting installations and certain construction work are part of their repertoire
Though the company’s main focus is Floriday and Pennsylvania, it has installed technically challenging solar panel structure across the nation.
Abender Corporation costs
Since Abender Corporation focuses on commercial or specialisation jobs, there’s reason to believe that higher prices are paid, simply because a more customized job is required. That being said, customer reviews appear to show clients were happy with the end product and are happy to pay more for a better-quality end product.
Financing aid is also offered, with federal and state tax benefits also available.
Abender Corporation Legitimacy
Abdender Corporation’s legitimacy can be called into question on a few counts.
- Though listed on BBB, it is not an accredited business on the site and has no reviews there, which is odd for a company established in 2007
- The company website lacks in-depth details about its history and precise services, though contact details in terms of e-mail addresses, contact numbers and opening hours are present
- BuildZoom confirms Abender Corporation’s licences as being active
- It is, however, NABCEP certified, and is also part of the American Solar Energy Society and the Solar Energy Industries Association®
Abender Corporation maintenance
Customer reviews point towards efficient jobs carried out with minimum fuss, with company owner Daniel Camacho particularly praised for his attention to detail and putting people’s mind at ease. As stated, Abender takes on specialty projects, so one client in particular was happy with the service provided simply because others had said installing panels on their property was impossible.
Another review explained over the five-day installation period, the workers cleaned up after themselves every day, while someone else praised their work ethic after they even cut down a tree for this customer.
None of the reviews talk about product maintenance or follow-ups by the company, and Abender Corporation’s one-page website does not include any information about this either. There are five-year warranties for workmanship, which includes a 5-year leak-proof warranty as well as parts and labor for any repairs caused by poor installation.
The inverters used also carry five-year warranties.
The Solar Empower View
While the niche offering is a nice touch, the lack of clarity in terms of company history, online reviews and type of solar panels used would hinder fully recommending this company. If these issues are addressed, there’s no doubt that Abender Corporation’s tailor-made services would be great for businesses looking to tap into solar energy, or home owners who might have challenging landscapes.
