I hired Randy T French and Havasu Solar to install a 9kw grid tie solar field to power my house and shop. I have had bad luck with inept local contractors in the past, but when I talked to this guy he actually seemed to know what he was talking about. He installed more panels than the inverter required so that the inverter "wakes up" early and "go to bed late". This allows the inverter to harvest more "sun power". His crews that do the installation are on the ball and know what they are doing. I'm very impressed by the quality of the work, it is as good as I can do!! Ok, perhaps a little better because they won't have to do it twice.... The other thing is this, I designed the system in 2010 and he has caught 2 mistakes that I would have made. Randy is building exactly what I wanted, without any arguments .... except he is using the new hybrid micro inverter/ central inverter tech made by Solar Edge, which after studying it out, is far better than the old style stuff. It is a capacitor based inverter rather than using a transformer, which means higher efficiency and more power production with less noise! I can view my power production from any laptop or phone and there is no monthly charge for this feature.
