Ben we had a great experience with Avatar.  Ben explained to us everything we needed to know about solar power.   He helped us figure out the right system for our needs and didn't try to over sell us.  He has been a pleasure to work with before, during, and after installation.  The installers were very courteous and professional and did the work quickly, without any mess.
Our Avatar solar system is now up and running and saving us tons of money on our electric bills.
Solar power is the way to go and Avatar is a great locally-owned business to do the job.  I recommend them very highly.

We only use local business to get your system installed

“Solar power is an important tool in Oakland’s evolution toward sustainable living. We have been encouraging developers to build solar power into projects for several years. It’s both fitting and timely that the City is coming forward with its own large scale solar projects; we practice what we preach.”
