What Our Clients Say
My wife and I are both engineers. We ask ton’s of questions and can spot people who know what they are talking about. Golden West Energy wasn’t the lowest price, but I trusted their presentation about their quality system. They were installing our system on Sept 8th, 2011 when all of San Diego lost power. It was then, that we decided to upgrade our solar system to Golden West Energy’s emergency backup design. Now our house has Solar Power even when SDG&E goes dead. No one else we talked to had any idea how to do that. It’s hard to put a price on Peace of mind and my family’s security during emergencies.
I’m a hands-on engineer and was fully capable of installing this system myself. But when I priced it all up, Golden West Energy was only a little higher than what it would have cost me to buy off the internet. Their installation warranty was well worth the peace-of-mind letting the professionals do it. And if anything goes wrong, I don’t have to chase down an internet company that may go out of business.

I’m reaching retirement age, and if I can’t predict the future…then my estimated retirement date is in jeopardy. I’m tired of SDG&E raising my rates every year. My solar system puts a stop to their nonsense right NOW. I just fixed my electric energy bill to ZERO forever. Golden West Energy did a superb job.
Golden West Energy installed a PV solar system to reduce my upper tier electric bill from SDG&E along with repairing my leaking roof. They found me affordable financing and helped me acquire a large rebate and huge tax rebate… I’m very happy with my system and I have highly recommended Scott to my family, friends, and neighbors. Thanks Scott!

San Diego, CA
We chose Golden West Energy from a contractor referral. I know me. I am a tough and demanding customer. Golden West Energy was very responsive to my multiple variations of proposal request, from cash price, to financing, to leasing comparisons. We were thrilled at the quality of their service and their installation personnel and competitive nature of their proposals. We would recommend them to anyone. We have nothing negative to say about them. All quality. All positive. All professional. And built quicker than my requested expedited construction schedule. What more can you ask?
Now that my Solar Electric system is installed, I will dig my water well next…then they won’t be able to raise my electric or water bill again.
I am a Navy Sub Engineer. I probably contacted 7 to 10 different solar contractors for quotes. I invited just a handful back for a second interview. Golden West Energy was top notch and gave me the best value for my money. I have referred them to my friends. Very pleased with this company and their employees.
Golden West Energy took care of all my wishes. They did some grading work for me, they removed some other structures for me and some trees. They were very flexible with my changes of landscape ideas and location for the panels. They worked very effectively with the county permitting people who kept changing their minds about setbacks and various other peculiarities. They were very comfortable to work with, friendly and had great prices.

My property uses a lot of electricity. My electric bill was over $700 per month at times. Golden West Energy came highly referred by my home builder. We had a complicated location issue with lots of easement and setback criteria to deal with. Golden West Energy came thru with flying colors.
I had an over $500/month electric bill, and when I got the estimate, I compared it with several other local business and Golden West beat their prices … I could not be more happy with the way that my system was installed, the precision that was utilized by the workers, the professionalism that was exemplified every single day on the job, the appearance of the employees, and the end product that I do not once regret investing in… I was impressed with the professionalism with which they conducted themselves… I am basically paying myself for a short while until it’s paid off, then it is literally money in my pocket. Golden West Energy has helped me get off the grid and I could not be happier about that. They are the green solution to power, and I could not recommend a better company to go with. They will beat any price out there, they have been in business for decades, they are as professional as they come, and they have my vote if you are even slightly considering going green.
I interviewed multiple solar companies before selecting Golden West Energy to install our electric solar panels. I was impressed by the fact that Scott (the owner) personally supervised the entire installation…. We are happy with our solar electric system and are glad we chose to have it installed by Golden West Energy.

Very professional – Excellent work and products concerned about every details with great follow-up to check goal achievement.
I love my solar system! It will save 476,157 lbs. of C02 greenhouse gas over the life of the system which is equivalent to how much CO2 is absorbed by 237 trees. I’m concerned about the environment and take my stewardship of the earth’s resources seriously. Solar electric is the most sensible way to use energy. I drive a Hybrid electric car and I am getting ready for the electric car age.

I’m retired from SDG&E. Listen, I know how utility companies work and how they do business. They charge the rate-payers for everything they do. The only way you can keep your electric bill from rising is to buy solar. And the quicker you do it, the faster you’ll get ahead.
After years of trying to find someone who could repair a solar system, only to be quoted on total replacement of the system, I found Golden West Energy… This is one easy going, pleasant to deal with, and totally honest contractor. Scott did more than I expected and everything was done in a timely manner…This is a first class company.
Our System Produces over 20,132 KWh per year.
Jody and Annette
Golden West Energy came recommended by a friend. GWE got me the financing and did all the leg work and paperwork. The only thing that would make me happier is if the system was free….but then again, after the payoff…it will be free.
I was very concerned about roof leaks, so Golden West Energy put down a new roof before installing this system. Since I’m on a fixed income, I’d rather pay myself $200 a month than pay San Diego Gas & Electric. This stopped SDGE’s electric bill inflation dead in its tracks
San Marcos, CA
We had solar panels installed for our home and for a well that irrigates our grove… I would highly recommend this company.
Now that we have a $ZERO electric bill, I’m wondering whether I should buy a new pair of shoes or a little extra jewelry every once in a while…or maybe just some cute clothes for my grand-babies. A tip for you guys…call Golden West Energy for your solar system. You will be very satisfied.
Designed and Installed a 6.3 kW grid tied PV System. I just purchased a new roof and I was a bit concerned about putting holes in a new roof. Scott was very friendly and took the time to help me understand the process of securing the solar panels to the roof… I am very happy with the results.

I had a ground mount 12 panel solar panel installation. The project went smoothly from the initial sales call thorough the technical walk-through and local permitting and the final installation and startup. Great cooperation and attention to detail by Scott and his crew. Very professional and willing to accommodate every aspect of the work performed to my satisfaction. System works great as intended.
This investment is head & shoulders above any low-risk investment available. Better than Treasury Bills. Better than Real Estate. Better than Tax Free Municiple Bonds. And during these times, way better than CD’s. If you have cash in CD’s today, you would be crazy not to put it into a solar system to eliminate your monthly electric bill expense.
Golden West Energy / Scott Sherman Installed a 20 panel solar system that freed me from S.D.G.&E. Scott Sherman was amazing. He beat everyone’s estimate by at least $5,000. He went above and beyond expectations in every phase of this project. He fixed broken tiles on my roof that were not his fault or responsibility. The crew he used were very clean and fast. The quality of the work is excellent… Scott you are a pleasure to work with, you take pride in your work and it shows. I am recommending you to all my friends. Thank you sincerely, Greg
