McCauley Solar Installation Five Star +

CMI is a family run small business located in Newark, DElaware that openly displays its pride of ownership.

The sales process was very comprehensive. CMI sent a tech to my residence to map out a design and produce an electrical production estimate. All questions were answered by an experienced electrician without delay and to my satisfaction. I had read many reviews and needed assurance that sloppy practices like exposed conduit and low end parts were not in my future.

Pricing was very competitive, top of the line panels and inverter led to an excellent warranty which eliminated the need for costly extended warranties.

Project manager Lauren is part of the family and provided great communication and follow thru. I added some additional scope of work which they included with a smile. Lauren led me through the substantial paperwork required by Delmarva Power. All of which was accepted without error.

Installation team was on time, neat, and installed my soul system in 2 days with not a single issue. Electrical inspector knew the lead electrician and promptly gave me a very positive review of his work. He noted not all work he reviewed at other sites compared.

Project closedown: Owner of the company came to the home and instructed us on the system and left us with a binder filled with all necessary documentation. I was presently surprised that all I needed to rememeber was the on/off switch. He outlined why there was no need for ongoing maintenance and associated expense. He surprised us with a gift of specially made CMI coffee cups and baseball hats.

Lauren stays in contact with us with continued help filing SREC documents and finalizing the Delmarva rebate check process.

All in all, I could not be more pleased that I could do business with a local company that did excellent work. They have my highest recommendation.

Excellence personified

CMI provided excellent service throughout the entire solar experience, from the initial assessment to on-going service well beyond system installation. They are true partners with their customers, and are always there with excellent professional and friendly advice. When I thought I had a problem, all it took was a call, and they responded rapidly. They quickly identified the problem, and even though it was not an issue with the work that they did, they provided me with the appropriate recommendations to correct the issue. They are a great organization, they provide excellent service, and I rate them highly.

I do have a couple of issues with getting the batteries to performa as promised, but they are right there working on it. I am very pleased with everything.

“This company values professionalism & communication better than any company I have worked with before. The office staff were always there to help and responded to emails within minutes typically. The installers were equally great. They treated my property like their own. They did an amazing job with the install both functionally and aesthetically. I highly recommend this company for ANY electrical need.

CMI Came To The Rescue

Our original installer went out of business leaving our system and many other customers in a mess. CMI took over service for our system over six years ago. They have been wonderful ot work with and have solved many problem for us. If you are considering Solar, please choose an honest, reliable company like CMI.

“Mr Davis, We would like to thank you for all that CMI has done for us. The two electricians, Andrew Faulkner and John Allen were fantastic. In my 60 years-I am 82- I have never dealt with 2 professionals who took such pride in doing their work perfectly even if it meant working long hours under unbelievable conditions, there weren’t any lights or air conditioning and it was the hottest week of the summer. They actually used flashlights to continue working. They were truly concerned with getting us up and running as soon as possible. They even charged my wife’s cell phone so she had contact with the world and Andrew ran a system of extension cords to keep our refrigerators and garage door working.

I never saw them take a break and I understand they missed some family events to keep working. This was also true of the young man who was here the first day. I am sorry, but I can not remember his name. (CMI Add-in: The gentleman out on that first day was Ed) They never complained.

Mr. Davis you can be proud of your CMI workforce. It never would have worked out in such a short time without your input. In closing thank you for the generous discount. It was a wonderful gift we never expected.

Andrew just left and the rest of the crew (Bryan, Zach and Marco) left about 20 minutes ago. They stayed late to get the job completed so they could move on to another one tomorrow. I wanted to tell you how impressed I was with their performance over the last two days. They were exceptionally efficient, thoughtful, courteous, and just all around pleasant to work with. They cleaned up the garage better than I do. And after they had to cut an access hole into the ceiling of the garage, they crafted a framed out access panel that looks as good as the one the builders made for the attic. We are so pleased with CMI and we will tell anyone who asks about solar panels that CMI is the only one to deal with.”

Tom York from Milton, DE

 Everyone was extremely helpful & very friendly. Lauren was very helpful & patient with all of my changes & questions. She even set up all of my accounts on this computer since I am not very good at that. I could not be happier. Thank you to all of you.”

 Dear Mr. Davis,

“Amazing” is the word that comes to mind to describe your generosity and commitment to offer solar energy to the village of Jalonga in the Dominican Republic. Thank you very much for collaborating with Christ Church to bring the Jalonga Solar Power Project to successful completion this past June.

As a member of a complex team that spanned miles and cultures, your leadership was essential. As you may already know, upon arrival in Jalonga the CMI team, Andrew Faulkner, Marco Almeida, and John Allen, were confronted with unexpected challenges, but thanks to their expertise, ability to adjust to circumstances, and tireless efforts on a very hot roof, the solar modules were mounted, the battery unit and storage trailer were installed, and electrical connections, including to a water well, were made. The Jalonga Community Center no has the capacity to receive 22,000 – 25,000 kilowatts of reliable, renewable electricity. This is truly amazing work!

They say it takes a village. Please know that we consider ourselves to be very blessed to count you and the members of the CMI Solar & Electric family as part of our village. On behalf of everyone at Christ Church Christiana Hundred, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and generous gifts of time, talent, and treasure.

Blessings & peace,

Ruth L. Beresford

 My wife and I are enjoying our new kitchen every day thanks to CMI’s work. The LED in-cabinet and under-cabinet lighting make it beautiful and practical. Everybody from Dan, drawing up the proposal, to Andrew, Bobby, and the guys installing everything did a fantastic job.”
