I first engaged PPM in 2016 for our residential PV system (after considering several solar contractors). We where very satisfied with the outcome. The crew was courteous, professional, and neat. The job was a multiday effort, but the site was cleaned up daily.We recently (2022) needed to replace the roof. PPM did our de-install/re-install. The project required removing all panels, and subsequently replacing using new mounting hardware. Effectively, it was like a new install. PPM worked with use to coordinate around the roofers scehduling and as before, was effective and orderly in completing the multi-day project. (The attached photos are of the completed original installation, and the near completed re-install.)We are very happy with PPM and our decision to work with them.

My solar array was sized correctly and now that we're getting close to the end of the first year it looks like we'll be very close to meeting our annual power consumption - Great Job! PPM took care of all of the permitting, etc. and the installation went very smoothly. Thanks to the PPM Team!

I installed residential solar with PPM and had an excellent experience. Despite supply challenges, the PPM team kept the project on a reasonable timeline, and the array went up in just two days, thanks to their courteous crew. We are very happy to have high-quality solar working for our household.

This review is long over due. I had my solar panels installed in October 2020. The job they did was excellent and they communicated at every aspect of the process. Kelley was amazing.Four months later I had two Tesla power walls installed. The delay was due to Tesla. Again this was seamless. Everything has been operating to perfection. I checked out multiple companies a head of time and I know I mad the correct choice. I highly recommend PPM.

The team at PPM was a pleasure to work with and I am very happy with my decision to partner with them on a solar and storage system. I felt cared for throughout the entire process, from the initial sales and system design conversations with Mike and Omid, to the permitting and installation scheduling chats with Nina, all the way to the install and close-out visit with Kelly. Thank you PPM for your diligence and quality work to make my solar and storage system a reality!

From the beginning, Buckhalter has been great to work with. Charles worked so hard to get us a unit that we would be happy with and that fit our budget. Then, Garrett and Mike did an incredible job installing our new A/C. Garrett and Mike were on time and worked hard and had our new system in fast. They went above and beyond to make sure the system was installed properly. I would recommend Buckhalter to anybody that needs a new A/C.

After having 2 different AC companies come to diagnose our problem and giving quotes for 2 different repairs ranging from 2k to 4500 I called Buckhalter for a 3rd opinion. Jeremy came out and was super professional took his time to explain everything and found the real root of the problem which ended up being an easy fix that was overlooked and was done for a fraction of the cost. Would highly recommend this company and Jeremy in particular. Thanks!

Chester was extremely thorough and professional with his work. He took the time to diagnose the issue, explain everything in a way that was understandable, and found a solution that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I’m genuinely happy with the service I received and will continue to use this company for all my AC needs!

I have a pretty old AC unit that has been well taken care of. However, I am in the market for a new one, but cannot afford it at this time. For the past three years. Buckhalter has serviced my AC unit replacing the coolant and offering services to keep it maintained at a reasonable cost.Chester was the best!! Very knowledgeable and offered several tips on continuing to maintain an operable unit.Buckhalter has proven to me time and again their loyalty and response to customers. As a single home owner I’m locked in for life!!!

This company was highly recommended to us by our realtor Nila Khurana and I can see why! Absolutely amazing customer service and quick, well done work. Great pricing as well.Ray was amazing in evaluating the old HVAC in our home before we bought it. Providing us with quotes that helped us get a credit from the sellers. Then after we bought our home they were so fast at scheduling us. Collin and Kyle installed the HVAC today and they were so polite & efficient. Throughout this all I've had great communication via phone, email and text with Jessica. We're definitely signing up for the once a year maintenance with Buckhalter. Thank you again Jessica, Ray, Collin and Kyle!☺️
