Failed Solar Installation. Project canceled by IESO because of missed Deadline.

After choosing Brightworks energy as a general contractor for our MicroFit program this "company" managed to miss final deadline and now I have 30K worth of anchor on my roof... forget about 65k profits...

My MicroFit project was APPROVED by IESO and the only one thing was missing to install all the equipment, get it all connected, get it inspected and...... do it ON TIME.....

The project had to be finished in 6 month not day more, you miss 1 day and bye bye project....

Brightworks as bright as it is was waiting for 5 !!!! full months to start IESO approved project and ....Get this.... They sent their electrician on the LAST DAY (seriously, not kidding, last deadline day) to connect the system to the grid.... Of course, the deadline was missed and now it is not fixable situation...

Brightworks is blaming everybody, especially EnWin (local power distribution company in Windsor ON)... They simply don't get that EnWin couldn't process paperwork and get all approvals in remaining few hours after electrician finished connection on LAST deadline day.

They asked me to contact EnWin and IESO and talk to them as a customer.... this was very shady.... I did call and did try, but there was no way to turn back time .....

Now I am hiring a lawyer and taking this bright business to court.

PS. I will take this review down ONLY IF Judge tells me, so you stay with it until then, and you can pass this to your lawyers again.

Also I will make sure MANY people know about your business practices .

Next in line is BBB, Yelp.... get ready to be very popular....

Solar Panels on my roof

Brightworks installed my solar roof and I couldn't be happier. They were professional, on time, and their products are great. I have been spreading the word about them by word of mouth, but decided that didn't go far enough. You will not be sorry that you used them and their products.

The company was very professional and did a great job installing our panels. I would highly recommend them to any one looking to have solar panels installed. They were very responsive to our questions and the whole process went smoothly.

Bright Works Soalr review.

We are happy we selected this company to do the solar panel installation, plus assistance through all the regulatory steps we had to take. As we found out the process is fairly complex and brightworks helped us through all the steps. excellent job and very nice employees. What really stood out for us is the Excellent customer service. The answering of emails we sent for clarification or the construction schedule were all answered clearly and promptly after we sent emails. I would recommend this company to other people who require Solar panels to be installed.

Install Solar System on house

They looked after all the approvals and permits. Their staff was very efficient and friendly. We started in late May and were connected to the power grid on the 2nd of Aug. We received our 1st payment from Hydro One on the 27th of Sept. We are really pleased with their work and the system is working fine. They gave us a firm quotation and we paid in 5 installments the last one on the 15th of September. We recommend Brightworks Solar to anyone planing a solar power system.

MicroFIT Rooftop Solar with Power Backup

I began the MicroFIT application in February and upon receiving the go-ahead in March I reached out to five Solar companies for proposals. Brightworks Solar responded with the most attractive proposal in terms of price, schedule, features & benefits, and guarantee. I am an Engineer and had very specific requirements for the type of hardware used and its particular installation as to minimize EMF radiation, maximize electricity generation, and have backup power when the grid goes down. The owner was very patient and responsive as we worked the details of my custom solution together (their first). The installation team was very professional and friendly too, however, despite the established understanding with the owner, my involvement with the onsite project management was somewhat greater than expected (eg. specific roof work and cable runs, communication with LDC, and inverter software commissioning). Fortunately the speed and quality of the owner’s communication and steps to address my concerns was top notch, and with a slight delay of three weeks the project was successfully deployed. It is setup to perform well and autonomously for years being protected from squirrels and raccoons with a critter guard, earning good income to offset utility bills, and if need be, capable of providing up to 2000W of free power straight from the panels. Overall I highly recommend Brightworks Solar to anyone considering a Solar project. Well done!

solar panel squirrel wire install

The invoice arrived before the job was started. The subcontractor completed the work in two days. The subcontractor was a very nice fellow and did a very good job. Blah blah blah blah 30 words.

Rooftop Solar Installation - Microfit

When I decided to participate in Microfit Solar Rooftop program.
Got proposal from them and other competitor's. Their proposal turned out to most detailed and cost effective.
Their installation was on time and delivered on their promise. Installers were very professional and friendly. The installation was completed on time with no hiccups.

I will definitely recommend them anybody wanting to do business with them.
