Installation Costs and Processes

For specific cost estimates, contact Malek Solar directly.

They assist clients with government rebates and tax incentive programs.

Most clients were very satisfied with the service they received, but there were numerous complaints about pricing and large charges. Our research also found that one of their former employees was concerned about how the company treated clients financially. Their customer service follow-up seems to be lacking for unhappy clients. The company has also received some negative feedback regarding pricing. Here is an example:

“Watch your pocket.” “Overpriced for amount of worked completed. Pushed service and billing through without clarity of charges. Unwilling to resolve, poor customer service.” “They do good work and have good technicians. The only complaint is they charge way too much.” “This company is a Rip-Off!!! Don’t let them in your home!”

The SolarEmpower View

Malek Services is a local company that’s been in business since 1989. A firm that’s been in business for over 30 years usually indicates a stable enterprise that’s trusted in its community.

Malek Solar is part of the larger Malek Services company, and we could only find customer reviews for their non-solar clients. Still, the reviews provide an indication of what kind of company they are and the service a customer can expect.

The Malek blog states their technicians undergo ongoing training and testing to keep them up to date in skill proficiency and trade knowledge. Malek may charge higher rates because they intend to provide premium services and don’t want to cut corners. Conversely, their higher rates may be a consequence of being a larger company involved in multiple trades, which is causing inefficiencies and higher costs.

With Malek, you have the advantage of a larger company with experienced, expert staff for all of your home systems.

However, our impression is that solar installations seem to be an add-on service for their larger company. You may not get the same level of service you’d get from a company that specializes exclusively in solar installation.

On their website, they urge prospective clients to get quotes from multiple vendors. If you’re considering solar, getting a free quote from them wouldn’t hurt.

Our rating is based on the fact that they’re not an exclusive solar installation company. Their website and online channels have very little information about any solar installations they’ve completed and some former clients’ concerns about pricing.

Is Malek Solar Energy worth it?

We believe they might be worth it. The majority of customers that wrote reviews are happy with their service, although they seem to be a higher-priced contractor. However, as with any large purchase, make sure you do your own due diligence in terms of research and quality assurance. Make sure you get a written quote and that you're comfortable with their rates before you proceed.

Is Malek Solar good to work for?

Our research found two reviews from former and current Malek Service staff members.

A former employee gave them a 1 star review, saying that the wage was "decent." However, you must sign a non-compete agreement, which states that after leaving the company, you can't work for any of their competitors for a year. They also said it was "high stress, high pressure to rip people off", with poor communication and organization from management.

An intern said there was good communication between workers, but the work/life balance was not appreciated.

These reviews may not reflect the views of others that work there.
