Type: PV + Battery
We had estimates from 4 different companies. Jim Schwed was the salesman for Solar Trek. When we started the process we were definitely new to the technology and found that Jim's explanation was at our level. Jim came to our attention from a friend who worked with him when he got his solar system. Solar Trek's price was excellent for the quality of panels and battery, plus the price included everything even upgrades to our panel if needed, and it did. From day 1, we had a timetable for the entire installation process, including permitting, that Solar Trek met to the day. Installation of our 30 - 335w panels plus battery took 2 days thanks to heavy thunderstorms on day 1. We have backup power to critical circuits that eliminate the need for a generator when the power goes out during hurricanes. There was a problem with one of the components connecting the battery to the new system and Solar Trek worked with the manufacturer to resolve the issue without any need for us to get involved. The office staff kept us updated regarding permitting and were always available if we had questions, which we did. We have been generating as much as 200% of the power we need, so very happy with the efficiency of the system. We would and have recommended Jim Schwed and Solar Trek without reservation and would use them again.

We chose Solar Trek to install our 13.14 KW home system and we are so happy we did. There were so many companies to choose from but Solar Trek checked all the boxes for us. Like 40 years in the business, recommended by our power company, the quality and warranty of the materials used, etc. Most importantly it was all the staff though that made the difference. Todd the salesman and Kyle the electrician stood out to us and we highly recommend Solar Trek to anyone looking to Go Solar!

Solar Trek, from the sales rep Jim Schwed to the office staff and installation crew, were great and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Ours was an uninstall/reinstall as we had to replace our roof. The crew were awesome, professional and hard working. The office staff, especially Diane, were very concerned about our having a positive experience. There was a slight mix-up in our reinstall but Diane followed up to make sure we were good. As for Jim Schwed, he sold us our panels when he was with another solar company. I’m not sure he benefited at all in this case but when I called him about taking our panels down to have our roof replaced, he was so responsive and so helpful. He also followed up with us to make sure we were taken care of. Thanks so much Solar Trek!!

My husband and I are so happy with both the Solar Panels and Pool heating panels we purchased from Mr. Jim Schwed, Senior Advisor for Solar Trek. Mr. Schwed kept his promise with the quality of materials used and careful attention and care of how the panels were placed. He is a man of his word! The quality is absolutely the very best and the installation was a breeze. Overall, my husband and I highly recommend Solar Trek as the company to go with and Mr. Schwed is the person you want to do business with. He is honest, straightforward and highly professional. Well worth doing business with this organization and its people. Highly satisfied customer!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I worked in “green” financing for several years and saw the quality and care that Solar Trek put into my clients’ systems. So much so that I trusted them to install my own solar system on my home. Almost five years later I know that I can still call Solar Trek with any questions or concerns. Patrick and his team are the most reputable, trustworthy contractor I can recommend.
Solar Trek just left our home following the relocation of 20 solar panels on our home's roof. Their crew consisted of Nathan, Chris and Tristan, and I couldn't have been happier with their professionalism and performance. Only one small glitch, in that one solar panel developed a slight crack during handling, which they pointed out immediately. They installed this panel where it will be easily replaced with a new panel and will perform that work within the next couple of days...couldn't be happier with their work.
Solar Trek is operated by some of the most knowledgeable and trustworthy people in the solar business,I have personally known them for decades,and would recommend them highly for all of your solar needs.
Had Solar Panels installed for our pool after Jim came out and gave us a great explanation of their product and how it compares to others. Reliable team from start to finish with a fair price. Highly recommend !!

We chose Solar Trek not only because of the price but also the personal one on one help they gave us every step of the way. We had questions after the install and the owner came out and went over things with us and inspected his installers work. This gave us peace of mind.
After plugging an old system 11 times, we decided to have Solar Trek replace the 13 yr old system. They showed up and did the replacement in one day. The new system is so efficient that we had to lower the temperature 10 degrees from our old system. Highly recommend Solar Trek for repairs and new systems.
Every aspect of the job was fully explained. they were on time and courteous. all was delivered as promised
Solar Trek installed solar panels for our pool last week. The sales person, Todd, was professional, knowledgeable about the product and avoided high pressure sales tactics. The installers arrived on time, completed the installation efficiently, and provided a clear explanation of the system operation. We recommend Solar Trek if you need solar panels for heating your pool.
Years in service and very cost competitive with other companies I contacted.
We are pleased with the job that Solar Trek employees Chris and Justin did. They worked all day to remove our older solar system and install the new one. They worked steadily throughout the day and had a very good work ethic. Chris allowed us to record his explanation of how to use the Solar Pool Heating system. We highly recommend this company and especially Chris and Justin.

Patrick and the team at Solar Trek installed our pool solar (SPH) and we were so impressed with their professionalism, that we ordered our first 5kW whole house solar system 2 years later. After looking at our needs, and exploring energy programs that were available, we had them install a second 5kW so we have a full 10kW solar system on our home. Today, we ear credits for 6-8 months a year and use them up in the coldest and hottest months. It is certainly nice to see a $5 electric bill (mandatory fees) with all those credits when the bill comes in! In the 9 years since we have had our system, we had 1 small issue and they took care of it right away. I highly recommend Solar Trek for any of your solar needs.
We just had solar panels installed for our pool. We wanted to extend our swimming season and this was the perfect solution. We do not have natural gas and the only other option was propane. Solar was the way to go. Once the initial cost is paid for, there are no other costs involved. We also like the way the panels do not rest directly on the roof. Air can get under them and keep the roof dry.
Solar Trek sent Kyle and Matt to replace our Solar Hot Water System and the service was exceptional! It was sure this would be a complicated process, but the guys completely removed and replaced the system in ONE day! We are so thankful for the guys hard work! 5-Stars!
The project was handled very efficiently and professional from the original proposal through permitting, installation and follow-up. Not the cheapest system install I could find but not by any means unreasonable. Totally hassle free. I would recommend.
After moving to Florida from Colorado mountains, I decided to look into solar power for my home. Upon visiting with Solar Trek, I quickly found they were up to date on all information on solar power, installation, and future of solar energy. I could not have had a better ordering or installation process. After the installation, the tech individuals took the time to go over every aspect of the installation and workings of the solar panels. The owner of the company made certain on several visits that I was happy with the outcome and answered any questions I may have had to that point. Solar Trek is a quality company that should be considered if anyone is interested in adding solar power to their home or business. I have complete confidence in the company.
Solar Trek gave me a great design with the highest quality materials on the market for my new solar pool heating system. The installation crew was very knowledgeable, had a neat and tidy workmanship, and completed the job in less than a day.

It was no small feat putting up a 50kW solar system 2.5 stories up on top of our 1923 masonry building in downtown DeLand, Florida. Patrick Altier and his crew from Solar Trek handled every challenge, and kept it within the agreed-upon contract price. Service after the sale has been superb. We are extremely proud of our system, and it's saving us real money.
