Well… we LOVED our experience…
Well… we LOVED our experience with Northwest Wind and Solar 4 years ago when we had solar installed at our residence, but I’m not sure about the company who took over…
About 2 years ago, we had an inverter go bad. The company was still Northwest Wind and Solar at that time. I had no idea, but they were monitoring my solar production and actually let me know within 2 days of it going offline that I had an issue. Incredible! They had someone come down within a couple days and replace the inverter and got us going, easy peasy!
Lately, I have not been checking my Solaredge app as it has been slightly confusing for me at times but I have been watching my power bills and noticed that I had no production happening this last bill. In looking further, I have had no production for 4 ENTIRE MONTHS! This morning, we reached out to the company, which is now run as Ozz Electric and apparently owned by SME Inc. They were able to see that we had an “inverter production issue” in their system. So, they said we needed to fill out some warranty forms and sent them over via email. When I looked at this warranty, it was quite different than our original warranty. They also want a credit card to cover any costs beyond 2 hours and may even charge for travel. I’m going to clarify this situation before I proceed and I really hope they do the right thing by the customers they inherited. I thought I should update my 4 year old post as things seem to have changed quite a bit.

No longer in business. New…
No longer in business. New owner only does "commercial" installs. Will honor warranty. I contacted them to add battery backup.

After having being acquired by Ozz Electric, they are doing everything to avoid supporting NW Wind and Solar residential installations.
