The entire team at LightWave Solar went above and beyond to ensure that our solar install was done on time, on budget, and to our satisfaction. Professional in every way. I can't get over how seamlessly they have integrated everything to our 1960 built home. Very well done. An added bonus is their handling of the necessary licenses, myriad forms and paperwork and approvals from local power company and TVA. These guys deserve 10 stars!

We installed a 10 KW solar panel array on the roof of our home this past fall. The process required coordination between us (the customer), the local electric company (Nashville Electric Service) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). While this may seem daunting, it turns out that apart from signing a few routine documents, the process requires little to no effort on the part of the customer: Lightwave Solar takes care of all the details. Their attention to those details was impressive, which meant the whole operation was smooth, professional and basically worry free. The physical installation itself is a marvel of craftsmanship and technology. Lightwave Solar fully earns their five star rating and I recommend them without reservation.

Expert system design and expert install. Couldn’t be happier. Installed grid-tied roof-mounted 30kw system on rural lodge. Very happy with results on electric bill.

My first month's savings was over $100. This is in spite of shorter fall days, cloudy days, and rain. The shortest day of the year is in late December. Its best performance will be in the spring and summer. I am very pleased with it.
