WHY SOLAR ENERGY?

It’s the source of heat & light for the whole solar system.

“America is in the midst of its own energy revolution.”

— BLOOMBERG NEW ENERGY FINANCE REPORT

Join the renewable energy revolution! Solar technology has moved into the mainstream thanks to gains in efficiency and rapidly falling prices of components. It has never been easier to reduce your carbon footprint, and with the current tax incentives, the cost to switching to solar has never been sweeter.

 

Let Sugar Hollow Solar examine your electricity usage, estimate system sizing, pricing and benefits, and design, install, and service a sun-powered solution that best fits the needs of your property and carbon footprint goals. Now that’s powering the future. Ask us (828) 776-9161

Testimonials

“VERY PROFESSIONAL AND HONEST.”

– HANS DOELLGAST, JADE MOUNTAIN BUILDERS

“I am delighted to offer an unqualified recommendation for you, your company and your work. I have been interested in solar power my whole life. I love the idea of using renewable energy and when the opportunity seemed right I went for it. You were recommended to me by a very competent construction supervisor. Since our initial contact I have been 100% satisfied. Your careful explanations, your commitment to details, and your work ethic were especially appealing. The job was completed ahead of schedule;  there were no surprises, and the costs were very reasonable. We appreciate the professionalism of your crew. We are totally satisfied. Hope Sugar Hollow is a huge success.”

— RALPH JOHNSON, HOME OWNER

“We had been interested in the ability to apply solar panels to our animal hospital for several years but had not acted on the endeavor due to some of the older designs and technology. Sugar Hollow Solar introduced us to the system we selected and was very thorough in educating us in the new technology. Phelps Clarke met with us and evaluated our location to determine the most advantageous installation. Grey Nelson kept us up to date on every detail of the installation. We are pleased with the professionalism and expertise of these men and their company. Workmanship and site safety were both priorities. Should anyone be considering solar addition to their business or home they should look no further than Sugar Hollow Solar.”

— DOCTORS DEAN HUTSELL AND CHARLES LLOYD, THE FAIRVIEW ANIMAL HOSPITAL

“Sugar Hollow Solar really went the extra mile to make my project work. It presented some challenges as it involved a long run of wire from the panels to the house but it works great and they even planted grass seed over the neatly covered trench. The investment certainly makes more income than a CD and makes be feel better about using my electric heat pump instead of the wood stove. I love reading the output info on the electrical box that informs me of how many TONS of CO2 I have saved from entering the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Sugar Hollow Solar as I know I can completely trust them to do a high quality job.”

— KATHY TRIPLETT, HOME OWNER

“My exposure to Sugar Hollow Solar involved Phelps Clarke, a friendly, professional and honest guy. He charged less than he could have and was willing to take time off the clock to educate me about solar energy. Since his visit to replace our hot water system controller – and later to find out why it quit working (turned out rats had severed the line to the sensor) – the company has understandably grown. I will put this company at the top of our list when we install photovoltaic panels. If their guys are all like Phelps, the job will be done correctly and at a reasonable cost. And you’ll get a good attitude in the bargain. I’d give them five stars.”

— RANDY NEALL, HOME OWNER

I recommend Sugar Hollow Solar based on their: -Experience and reputation -Competitive pricing and quality equipment -Expertise and attention to detail -Community and business practices. SHS is a mature and stable company who take pride in every install and deliver the most value to the customer. Thanks SHS for providing your services to us in Western NC!”

— KATIE BRAY, CLEAN ENERGY FOR US

“Phelps scheduled an appointment with us within a few days of our contacting him, evaluated our house for solar and talked with us about our objectives in having a solar photovoltaic system installed. He provided information for 2 systems including performance and financial estimates; and helped us decide which system to purchase. He answered all our questions quickly and understandably. Actual installation occurred as promised and took a couple of weeks because of weather delays and a short delay in getting some parts. Phelps, Grey our project manager and Eric and his work crew were a pleasure to work with throughout the project. They were all very enthusiastic, obviously enjoyed what they were doing, and went out of their way to keep us informed of what they were doing. It was obvious that customer satisfaction was a critical part of their operation. At the end of each day they cleaned up the site and at the end of the project the only evidence of their presence was a beautiful set of solar pv panels on the roof. Since installation was completed Phelps has continued to answer my questions promptly. The system is exceeding predicted performance and we look forward to seeing what happens this summer. I am delighted to recommend Sugar Hollow Solar without reservation to anyone who is considering installing solar pv on their home. I found them knowledgeable, professional, courteous, prompt, willing to listen and answer questions, enthusiastic, strongly committed to customer satisfaction and very competitively priced.

— MIKE LEVI, HOME OWNER

“I chose Sugar Hollow Solar based on Phelps’s great reputation with area builders and even competitors for his attention to detail and problem solving ability. Prices were competitive.every part of the job was enjoyable, and Phelps’s follow up and patience with my questions in particular. These guys bring excitement to the job and enjoy what they do and it shows in their quality and service. You can look around if you like, but these are the guys to go with!”

– LARRY PAPULA, HOME OWNER

“We chose Sugar Hollow Solar because of a strong recommendation by our builder, Jade Mountain, and negative experiences with one of his competitors. The competitor pushed a higher priced storage tank that we had to replace in Tennessee because it rusted out. Phelps (owner) was able to explain the reasons behind his suggestions for specific product choices. He was always ready to check out any concerns we had after installation and was prompt in his responses. To a prospective customer, I would say that we have been pleased with the service and we would choose them again. Further, we would choose the same equipment.”
