Eric Helgeson, NexGen Construction’s owner was very helpful in educating me on solar. He spent this time helping me come up to speed even though he knew I was not ready even to decide if solar was right for me much less sign a contract. This was in June. I spent that month and July checking out installers and confirming that solar was a good investment for me. I winnowed down companies to three candidates.
NexGen Construction gave me a good deal. But more important the dealing with them both in my investigative stage and in the purchasing process made me feel confident in their product and service. I felt it important that my provider was a full service company, not a contractor who relied on fleeting subcontract labor.
It is five years later when I write this review. Three of my friends have also used NexGen Construction for their solar installations. I believe they have also passed down the recommendation to their friends. All of us are totally satisfied with the work and product.
The system has consistently been out performing its estimates by somewhere between 5 and 20 percent a month. My electricity costs are essentially nothing now, so I am saving over $2000 a year. This is based on the cost of electricity five years ago. I have not recomputed based on today’s rates, but rest assured the savings are greater now. These savings are equivalent to a tax free investment that returns better than 10% a year. Where else can you find that kind of a safe investment?
