microFIT Solar Energy application & installation

I wanted to apply for an Ontario microFIT solar installation contract so I sought out proposals for solar installations and support/assistance with the microFIT application process. I received 8 proposal from both larger well know and smaller less know companies. I short listed to 3 and based on reviews and reputation I narrowed down to EthoEnergy and one other potential partner. Daniel was so amazing to deal with and he was patient with my many questions. They know their stuff and it clearly showed the depth of their experience with various solar installations both large scale and home rooftop. Their pricing was very competitive compared to the others and they took a slightly different approach from the other potential vendors to ensure the system capacity was maximized. Now 8 months later I have to update this review and I am sorry to say their implementation was not smooth. It faced long delays, and although I did get the Microfit contract and the installation was done enough so that I could be generating power to ensure I didn't lose the Microfit; however, it is still not fully functioning, the panel monitoring is not set-up, squirrel guards not installed yet and I am only consistently registering 23 out of 28 panels. I am not sure if the fault is with company as a whole or with the implementation manager assigned to my project. Overall it has left me generally satisfied with the installation, but not satisfied with how they handled and are handling the implementation. Something that started out so well has seemingly been really mismanaged and made me regret choosing Etho over the very close runner up.
