John was great to work with, and my solar system is exceeding my expectations. I learned a lot about solar I didnt know just by going through the process with John designing, installing, and commissioning the system.
Fantastic! We were on a tight deadline due to a PGE incentive and the previous company we had been working with fell through. We didn’t think we were going to be able to get the panels up in time, but Elemental Energy stepped up and saved the day! They were knowledgeable and friendly, very professional. They responded quickly to all of our questions, and best of all, they got everything up and running by the deadline! We will be recommending them to all of our friends!
Great service and people working here! They installed an ~8kW system on our house recently and the process was pretty terrific. Great team of people...small company with knowledge, education and training in the solar industry. Way better than the larger companies offering the “same” products. Products are the same but the people make the difference!
Elemental Energy is fantastic! They combine passion and service with technology and sustainability. John Grieser is very knowledgeable about every aspect of a solar installation. It was important to us to spend the ETO incentive funds and tax credits with a local company, particularly one with lots of expertise in residential installations. Our new SolarWorld panels were made right here in Oregon as well. The installation crew was very courteous and friendly. John has a clear and timely style of communication, and I always felt that he was attending to our project from the moment I first contacted them. I would hire them again in an instant, and highly recommend them to anyone who is considering an installation. They’re the best, and we’re lucky to have them here in the Portland Metro area.
I did a lot of research into various companies providing solar installations — roughly 10 companies, both local and national. Elemental Energy stood far above them all in just about every aspect. Elemental was very quick to respond to my initial consultation request on their website, where some other companies didn’t respond for weeks! Elemental was very easy to communicate with, forthcoming with information when I asked questions, and great at explaining very technical details in an understandable, simple manner. Some other companies made me feel like I was pulling teeth.Elemental was incredibly quick to install everything. The panels and electrical wiring were physically in place only 10 days after me signing the contract, and it was completed within the span of a single day. Other companies gave me estimates as high as 6 months before they would be able to begin construction. I would recommend Elemental Energy to anyone interested in solar power.
Last July John and Brandon installed a 4.05 kW photovoltaic system (18 panels) for us on our roof. We are very happy with our system and it works perfectly. The incentives from Energy Trust of Oregon, as well as the federal and state tax rebates, made the system very affordable, to the degreee that the investment will be completely paid back to us in less than 5 years. After that, we can just enjoy the free power, low utility bills and small carbon footprint. I would highly recommend Elemental Energy. They deliver a great product and made getting the rebates and incentives very easy. They were super easy to work with, and always very responsive via phone, email or text.
Just got the switch flipped on my brand spanking new system and the panels are already producing more than our household is using! John and Brandon did great work from start to finish on everything from quoting out specs and helping me understand which incentive programs would be most beneficial, to making sure that the post-build paper work was fully taken care of with the city and PGE.
John and Brandon did a great job on installing the 14 panels on our roof, and facilitating the project with all of the various other parties involved in the installation (permits, inspection, the ETO, etc). The crew was exceptionally efficient, courteous, and timely. John knows a lot about the technical considerations and details of the equipment and its installation; he answered all of my questions without any hesitation. I would hire Elemental Energy again in the future, and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a residential or commercial solar installation.
The Elemental folks installed an 8.8 kilowatt solar system on our roof. They were friendly, low-key and informative throughout the process, and there was excellent planning and coordination with us, with the electrician, and with the city inspectors. We have only been paying the minimal fees associated with our electric bill. We’ve purchased a used Nissan Leaf EV and expect to be net-zero for the year, even with charging that up! I would, and do, recommend them.
