Elite+ installers are the most experienced, chosen, and celebrated companies on the Marketplace, having provided exceptional service to a high volume of shoppers for at least a year.


The sales process was very helpful – but not too salesy or pushy. Very direct and honest. The team that installed the panel system was super friendly and kind… The entire crew has done a fantastic job keeping up up to date on next steps. I highly recommend them.

Mike Pietig


From the first meeting with Centauri to the final inspection, we have had nothing but positive experiences. We got three estimates (including from one of the largest solar installers) and we chose Centauri. Every single time I called or emailed (which was a lot) I got a response back immediately.

Patricia Bergh


I really enjoyed this group from the beginning, helpful and friendly. They got the job done fast and efficiently! It took them just 3 days to install and within a couple of weeks it was online. After the first billing month, the system has produced at or just above their predicted amount. I would definitely go back to them again!

Jeremy Smith


They came in with the most competitive offer out of all the quotes I received while providing the best warranty and the best panel/inverter combo out of the quotes. Each step of the way, Centauri Systems made the project easy to understand, transparent and communicated above and beyond my expectations.

elforeign


I selected Centauri because I believe they had the best overall mix of quality products, competitive pricing, responsiveness, and expertise. I am experienced at purchasing this type of system, having done so once before. I am an engineer with fairly in-depth knowledge of the technology and requirements. I was impressed that Centauri knew what they were talking about regarding best selection and configuration of the system.

Michael Lynch


When it came down to comparing the quotes, it was a no brainer. Dylan was extremely knowledgeable and willing to teach about the ins and outs of solar systems from installation to how they convert solar energy to electricity to how the energy will be fed to the grid as well as what I will see on my end and what the numbers mean.
