An interesting detail is that all of the company’s products are hurricane rated for Florida (to Category 5 standards), even in cases where it may not be mandated by local laws.
Unfortunately, as Green Planet Solar Systems did not respond to our inquiry (see more below), we were unable to learn specifics about their offers or their favorite solar brands.
Since the company didn’t respond to our inquiries, we were unable to get any details about their pricing or exact brands; however, several reviews mention that they’re in the medium-high price range.
At the time of this article, the company had 10 Yelp reviews and an average rating of 4.5, with numerous people praising their diligence and a very upfront, informative staff that often recommends ingenious or cost-saving solutions.
The company isn’t BBB-accredited, but it does possess a listing there, as well as a local Florida state license from its Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
Maintenance services (whether on request or in form of regular checkups governed by a contract) can be arranged with the company, and numerous customer reviews describe how the Green Planet Solar Systems staff made repeated visits to resolve any issues they brought up after installation.
Unfortunately, Green Planet Solar Systems did not respond to our test inquiry, and we were unable to reach them on the phone, so we were unable to see how friendly they are. However, considering that all inquiries should receive at least a cursory “we have received your message”, confirmation even if it never amounts to everything, this was disappointing.
While the ultimate outcome of our inquiry was certainly disappointing, the fact that the company has good overall reviews would be enough to entice us to contact them again.
Interestingly enough, the company limits its contact form to only 30 words, preventing you from giving much context, and even though the phone number is listed as “required”, you can send your inquiry without it.
Conclusion – The SolarEmpower Verdict
We are immensely disappointed that Green Planet Solar Systems hasn’t responded to the two inquiries we sent them, but their numerous good reviews and a long tradition (dating back to 2012) mean that they deserve a pass for that. It seems to be a good choice for anyone in the Largo, Florida area, and it might be worth getting in touch with them to discuss your needs.
