It has been almost a year since I bought my two panel system from you. (2, 10-01s) I enjoyed the drive up to meet you and I have really enjoyed the money I’ve saved on my FPL bill. The first month my bill dropped 30% but I didn’t believe the hot water could have made that much of a difference. I was wrong. I had an energy audit done by FPL and they said after surveying my house that I had already taken the biggest steps in reducing my light bill I could take. I had added insulation and installed the solar hot water system…
Thanks for selling me something that does exactly what it says it will do. Best Regards, Greg M.
It's been a long
time since you shipped my panel to me but I finally got time
to hook it up. It was really quite easy to do. It works great
and I'm very happy with it. Thanks for your offer of help, I
feel a little guilty that it was so easy that I didn't need it.
Everyone is asking the same question about solar water heaters:
Why Doesn't Everyone Have One? The very detailed Website made
it quite clear that this company knew what it was doing and had
created a product that could be installed by one elderly person,
I found the installation directions very easy to follow.
Gentlemen,here in south west Florida we have
survived the coldest, cloudiest, rainiest winter (set records)
anyone can remember.
I am happy to report that in spite of the
weather we have never run out of hot water. It will be two years
now that our electric water heater has been turned off. I must
point out that we change the position and tilt if the panels
as required which keeps the performance at peak efficiency.
I don't pay much attention to the system it is not uncommon throughout
the winter to see return temperatures in the 130s and 140s...
can't thank you enough for this fine solar system. If anyone
in Southwest Florida would like to see the "HUGE" advantages
of a ground mount system feel free to refer them to us.

The costs are reasonable, the product is of good quality and
the results are impressive.
Thank you for making the collectors

When I assembled my system, I had everything I needed the first
time. The system has performed extremely well, was easy to assemble,
and the best price of any I had looked at. It was really quite
easy to do. It works great and I'm very happy I highly recommend

Hello, Mr. Rich,
I wanted to send you
a note to let you know that since my system went operational
in September, I have not had any issues whatsoever, and am
experiencing what I feel to be very good to excellent performance
from it. Recently, during single-digit temperature days, I
was happy to see > 90 degree
temperature fluid coming from the collector panels into the heat
exchanger. While Missouri lags behind most of the country in
the promotion of renewable energy, I would expect some of that
new business to be coming from the St. Louis area. If you are
in need of a reference to speak with potential customers, please
feel free to pass my name and e-mail address on to them.

Thanks for the note. Before moving
to Africa we spent 17-18 years in Northern California (Fair
Oaks, Colusa, & Healdsburg).
Our son Tom is a deputy with the Sac County Sheriff's office.
Although he and his wife live in Lincoln, he patrols the area
around you. Both of our kids are Del Campo graduates. I'll include
him in the e-mail and ask him to stop by when he's in your area.
You would be pleased to know that the other occupants here at
the Rafiki Village are orphans and have NEVER experienced running
water from a tap, much less hot water on demand. None of them
have ever seen or turned on an electric light, and the list goes
on. Rafiki Foundation, Inc. has a number of orphanages in sub-Saharan
Africa taking care the smallest victims of the HIV/AIDS pandemic,
the wars, and all the other stuff that goes on over here making
it very unhealthy for kids. In Liberia one out of every five
children dies before the age of five. SolarRoofs has helped to
make some of that 4 make it, better prepared citizens of our
Your servant and His in Liberia,
Just wanted to say thanks for the help via the phone calls
in setting up the solar system. ...I called on three separate
occasions and your reps were helpful and polite each time.
again for your support, it's a great system for up here in upstate
Carolina blue sky is usually a hazy blue unlike the west coast,
but it doesn't seem to slow these collectors down! I am sure
it has a lot to do with individual consumption, but we are entering
March with better than 80% solar capacity. I have not flipped
the breaker for the electric element at all. When I need more
hot water, I move the valves manually to the gas water heater.
That way we have a pretty good handle at least the number of
days we are using solar. Our family can usually go two days on
the storage tank. So for now, it is looking very good!
I installed my 2 collector type 2 and it works like a charm.
I am very impressed with your product, it really is a great kit.
If you ever need more references, or someone in this area who
wants to see before buying, feel free. All and all, a very happy
Thank you and regards,
Thanks so much for making a great system. I'm a computer support
technician, and not one who normally does this sort of thing.
The fact that I was able to do much of this myself is a testimony
to the well thought out system that you've developed. I look
forward to providing hot water for my family for years to come.

To all the folks at SolarRoofs, In August of 2008 I purchased
a System 5 from you and I just wanted to follow up and tell you
how impressed I am with your product. My system installation
was simple and performance is excellent. In these summer months
my old hot water system can go to sleep and even in cold weather
the solar is working! I recommend your product to everyone my
sincere thanks to you all.
Jerry G. - Mastic Beach - NY
We are ecstatic about our new System3 here
in Columbia,SC!! Our first electric bill came in at a 31% savings
!! And that's with NO fuzzy math! Performance is more than adequate,
even on cloudy days. Your operation is very professional and
courteous as well.
Please do keep up the fantastic work!
and Audrie H. - Columbia, SC
Well, it took me a while, not because
of the kit but because I have had very little time to install
it, but everything is up and running great. I have officially
shut off my boiler hopefully for at least the next month and
a half. I'm interested to see how it works this winter in Vermont.
Thank you again for all your help during the install.
My compliments to you for your well-designed solar
collectors. Mine ... went up like a breeze... If I weren't going
on 70 years old, I'd go into business here in Vermont!!
System is installed and working terrific. Thanks! Aaron
H. - CA It works! I finally charged my system several days ago
and everything seems to work as designed.. it all appears much
simpler from this side of the project. ..., overall, the installation
went smoothly, thanks in part to your timely technical support....and
yes I would recommend this system to others. word of mouth means
your product is a success.
As of 4pm yesterday I finally got my solar system
up and operating. 150 f coming off the collectors on this overcast
New England afternoon. System was received in good condition.
Took a while to install only because the project begot severalother
projects at the same time. Actual install was pretty straight
The system is working perfectly. Wednesday we did laundry and
all household chores with warm water from Tuesday all before
noon and then stored plenty more hot water for evening chores
and our wake up use this morning.
Lonnie and Dave P. - Maine

Dear Mr. Rich,
I can’t say enough good things about my new
solar water heater. I took your advice and purchased the SkyLine
5 Platinum system.
I am an engineer and no stranger to working with my hands so
purchasing an all inclusive “kit” was against my nature. I was
expecting a little more of a challenge but to my surprise your
deluxe system has an abundance of everything one needs to easily
do it yourself. So many times, you get a “kit” that scrimps
on the basics like hardware or uses the cheapest stuff you could
buy. Your kit was Awesome! Thank you for including extra of everything
and using the best quality as well. That’s a first for me and
made for a very pleasurable experience.
My daughter and I installed the complete system in a day and
a half. Your color instruction book and on line video tutorials
made it fun and easy. I spent more time clearing out the attic
and removing the old water heater than anything else.
The overall quality of the components and workmanship it absolutely
top shelf! I couldn’t be happier. This is what “Made in U.S.A.”
is supposed to be!
Yes it works too!
As an engineer I know that it is essentially easy to make something
work. It is hard to make it easy. Your design is elegant in its’
simplicity. The differential pump and controller work effortlessly
to extract every bit of solar energy from the collectors on my
roof and deposit it into the water heater in my basement. It
is obvious to me that you spent some time refining this design
to it’s present point.
It is fun to watch the roof collector temp drop
as the water heater increases. Even on a cold day, 38 degrees
F., I got a tank temp of 110 with limited sun. This is in November!!
I supplement my domestic hot water heat in the winter with an
out door wood boiler. This combination means I never use electricity.
I connected the electricity to the supplied 80 gallon heater/
tank but have never powered it on.
Based on the efficiency of this unit I can see that during the
spring summer and fall I will have more solar heated hot water
than I can use!
I thank you again and must also say that your customer service
from start to finish was the most pleasant experience one could
hope for. I could not be happier, this is the best investment
I have made in a long time.
