A few words from our awesome clients

This Place is amazing my entire family got solar from Mcwire Electric And I they were so great every step of the way from the first phone call to production and then installation I thank every body that worked so hard to make this happen for us when no other company could. Thank you , Andrew Mcguire, Pete Carle, Melissa, and Yanela, Michaela. and all the installers. And to Matt in canvassing thank you for coming to my house! I will recommend this company to everyone.

We had our solar system installed by McWire Electric a little over a year ago.  Everyone we had the pleasure of interacting with were professional, efficient, and extremely courteous.  The installation was done quickly and cleanly.   The only way you knew anyone had done work at our home was the final product, the solar panels on the roof. During the past year, two issues arose that needed McWire Electric’s attention.  The two issues were resolved on a timely basis and in both cases McWire Electric exceeded our expectations.  McWire Electric stands behind their product and their installation which have a 30 year warranty.  We would highly recommend McWire Electric to anyone looking for a solar contractor that is focused on the needs and satisfaction of their customers.

We had solar installed back in July. We went with McWire electric because of their good standing as a company locally and it was a great experience and we highly recommend them. We met with a couple other companies and not only was Roman willing to meet with only myself for the preliminary meeting (many contractors insist on only meeting with one partner)  he was calm and had a no-pressure style. Our aim was to add enough panels to cover our usage and so far we are more than on track to break even at the end of the year and are so excited to have a chance to get ahead of our energy usage and be more environmentally responsible (maybe it will balance out all the gas we use driving, lol). Great financing available through SDMCU along with a 30% tax rebate and an additional 30% rebate available if you replace your roof at the same time. So happy we took the plunge as energy rates continue to climb!

We had a solar energy system installed on our house in the summer of 2014 by McWire Electric. We couldn’t be happier with the solar system or the service by McWire Electric. From the first representative contact, through the solar  panels installation and wiring hook-up to our existing home electric system and on through the approvals by San Diego Building Inspection and SDG&E Inspection, everything went smoothly and was delivered exactly as expected.  Support for the on-line monitoring software of the complete solar system and panel-by-panel data reporting was much appreciated. Our electric meter now runs backwards. We are very happy customers.

I have to say I have had 4 quotes with several different companies I got a follow up call from jenae in marketing and she was so professional I knew I made the right choice mcwirelectric was the company I had no regrets yanela in financing was just as wonderful and io got several updates by Melissa in production I highly recommend this company if you are looking for a company who has been in business over a decade and is very reliable I love not having a electric bill thank you everyone for your hard work.

My wife and I decided it was time to go solar. We researched a few companies and cost wise, they were all fairly close. We licked McWire to install because they are local and even took me out to an already installed system to check for radio frequency interference!

I had McWire Electric install solar last year on my home as did 2 friends of mine.  .  The workmen were great and always explained everything to me.  The installation went smoothly and my system works great.

Suzanne K.

Wanted to do the install myself and find a company that would work with me and not be unreasonable.  Mcwire was that company!  Price for material and cost to do the heavy lifting (paperwork with the city) was within all the research that I had done online.  Customer service while I was doing the work was exceptional!  The manager even came out to my house on a Sunday afternoon to deliver some parts that I needed to complete the install.  The installers were at my disposal for any questions I had throughout the process and even came by to check on my progress!  I passed inspection with no problem and have been reaping the benefits since.  I highly recommend MicWire for solar whether you do it yourself or have them do the install!

I chose McWire Electric for my solar project because it was a complex project. We were dealing with a tilted system, and my roof was flat. Once McWire Electric came out they put my worries to rest. They had did 100’s of systems with my potential problems and already had the answer to my installation nightmare. Their production department and installation crew was amazing and got my job done on time and in the budget i had. Thank you McWire Electric and team.

I have to say I have had a very good experience with McWire Electric from the very beginning the 1st phone call I think her name was janey she was straight to the point very helpful and she listened to what I had to say, she made sure I understood everything before we hung up. I made an appointment with her for a solar consultant to come out and show me how much money I can save on solar vs electricity and boy could I save the next step was I think her name was Emily she came out sat down with me made me feel comfortable and address my concerns her and janey were both on the same page Janay said to have a electric bill ready it will make the process go smoother and it did. Great Team Of people at McWire When she left i felt so excited about my next step getting solar the finance with yanela was a breeze 1.89 with a 30 year warranty really it was a no brainer. I am getting ready for my next project windows with them as well they are a wonderful company

We went to an electrical contractor because we needed electrical work, but we were unexpectedly pleased with the hands-on treatment.  Our experience with McWire was very pleasant and we recommend them to anyone.  Workers were great, the panel was upgraded quickly, and their follow-up and informing us was wonderful.

If, you ever have a question, call the owner Drew! Nobody is perfect. But, there is owner’s out there in the business world that will make it right. He is one of them.

I met Andrew and McWire Electric Inc through a friend of mine. As soon as i met Andrew, and knew he was going to take care of my solar needs. Andrew and team were very helpful & knowledgeable throughout my solar project. Going above and beyond the normal contract for me, he helped me in designing a new awning structure for my property to install my new solar system. I have had my solar system now for a year & i just received my first year end check from the utility company for overproducing.

If you are looking for a great company to do your solar system with, I recommend Andrew and McWire Electric Inc.

I live in Santee and wanted a local business to install my solar.  Most companies I met with sub-contracted out their work.  I chose McWire Electric because they handle all work in house. They also use premium grade products that are made in the USA.  The costumer service was excellent and all work was completed on time.  Now SDGE owes me money each month!  I am running all my appliance for free.

Andrew S.

McWire Electric did a great job. Our bill was hitting tier 4 and now that we have solar we only pay a couple of bucks to SDG&E. The entire team was great to work with! We like using local companies and  chose McWire because they had a no pressure sales approach. Roman did a great job, made solar simple, and easy to understand. Shawn came out and reviewed the project once the design stage was complete. Jesse and Casey did outstanding work. They were so professional and really quick. After they completed the job they cleaned up and actually left the work area better than when they got here. I cant say enough about this company! They really understand what it means to create long term relationships with their clients. Thanks Guys!

I had recently decided that I wanted solar energy for my house! Had no idea what I was doing but had heard about mcwire electric from a friend who loved the work they did on her house. I had talked to Pete who was super friendly! He gave me all the information I needed and answered all the questions I had. I’m definitely confident in my decision for a solar company!

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the ENTIRE McWire Electric Team for a JOB WELL DONE. This would not have been possible without the support and dedication that the McWire team applied to my project.

We were very pleased with the sales and service we received from McWire Electric. Phone calls were taken right away and if not they called back with in 10minutes. The guys working on the  project were polite, knowledgeable, and clean in appearance as well as the work they performed. Communication with this company is the utmost importance. I received weekly e-mails even when nothing was going on with my project. I recommend anyone to give this company a try.
