I've had my system for 8 years now and I'm a very happy solar customer! Joe always answers his phone and is so quick to provide the information I'm in search of. This day in age, it's tough to find companies that stand behind their work. If more businesses functioned like Joe and Florida Power Services The Solar Power Company, the world would be a much better place. Thank you guys for everything!

It was great working with Florida Power Services "The Solar Power Company". Having solar panels is piece of mind. The sales process was efficient and helpful, making it easy to understand. They take care of all the paperwork, which makes it super easy to get yourself up and running. Solar was something we'd wanted for a long time and Florida Power Services made it happen flawlessly!

I can't say enough good things about Joe and Florida Power Services. In my opinion, they are the best solar power company in Tampa Bay. From the beginning to the end, they were nothing but professional. They always showed up for appointments, they were extremely responsive to my questions and concerns. I had gotten numerous estimates for my solar panels and battery and found at least half of the companies I dealt with didn't call back or didn't even bother showing up. Florida Power Services made the whole process easy, they were the first to provide a quote and also provide the best value for quality equipment used. From getting the permits to coming up with the plan to the installation to the post-install follow up, The guys at Florida Power Services did an amazing job!!! I believe solar is the way to go and Joe with Florida Power Services is the guy you need to talk to!read more

We had a bad experience with another solar company that started our project and then went bankrupt before it was finished. Joe with Florida Power was willing to work with us to complete the job. We were understandably nervous, but Joe was patient and kind, taking his time to answer all our questions. He was the one person we interviewed who didn't seem the least bit salesy, but instead seemed to really care about his work. After we signed a contract with him, he had the panels delivered, installed and inspected in a week! He communicated openly the whole time and did exactly as he said he would. The installers did a great job and everything turned out perfectly. We only wish we had found Florida Power Services the first time. We would absolutely recommend them to everyone, as it was a pleasure working with them.read more

From day 1 working with Joe and Florida Power Service was easy and one of the best decisions we made. He worked around our schedules to set up phone calls so that we were both available to ask questions. Being new to getting solar on our house we obviously had a lot of questions and he was able to answer every one of them all without making us feel like we were stupid or were asking dumb questions. Even if we would send him a question via email he was very quick to respond and did not make it seem like it was a hassle for him. One thing that we really liked about working with them is that the price they gave us was the price for everything for the length of financing contract. Other companies that we received estimates from would give us one price but that came with the stipulation that we put whatever tax credit we would receive towards the loan or the monthly payments would go up. They showed up on time, were extremely courteous and clean. They made sure that when they were done for the day that things were not just lying around in the yard or on the roof. If they had to come inside for anything they first knocked and made sure they either brushed their feet off or changed their shoes. We had a slight problem getting our inverters to connect to our wifi and instead of leaving when everyone would've Joe's brother stayed until almost 8 on a Friday night trying to get it all set up for us. Joe stayed with us throughout the entire process of us going live and coordinated everything Teco needed in order to get us up and running. As I stated before working with Joe made everything super easy and in just over a month (most of that time consisted of us having to wait for TECO to get our new meter) we are now running our entire house on solar. We are extremely grateful for all the hard work that Joe and Florida Power Service put in and highly recommend using them for any solar needs!read more

I could tell you about the incredible service, workmanship, and price. I could tell you about the expertise and knowledge that Joe demonstrates the first time you meet him. However, what you really need to know, is before you sign with some other company, you owe it to yourself to talk to Joe.

Joe installed our Enphase solar system in 2015; the system works perfect and my energy bill was reduced 65%! Joe's installation was top notch, and the very few times I called for support (usually after a storm knocked out the router) Joe helped me get everything back to normal in no time. I highly recommend FPS - great system, expert installation, flawless performance!

Install went well with no problems and no delays. Joe and his crew showed up when they said they would. Total price of materials/labor was good and much cheaper than the Vivint and Solar City groups. Installed about 9mos ago, and still working well with no issues.

Great experience with Florida Power Services. We had gotten our first quote from another contractor and we just about scrapped the whole idea of getting solar. Then we had Joe come out and told him we wanted a ground mount system that could double as a carport and he gave us a great price and a plan with the estimate. It didn't hurt that you get 30% tax rebate on a system this year. Joe and crew came out on a Tuesday and put in the necessary hours needed and got it done that Friday. The only wait time is TECO swapping out the meter. We are happy with the install and it's addicting watching the meter and the power the system is producing on the the app. Thanks Joe!read more

Our Solar Edge system was damaged during an electrical storm and our original installer Guardian Solar were not responsive. I put calls out to various vendors recommended by Solar Edge and Joe was the first to promptly respond and get to our site to investigate. Joe was incredible knowledgeable, thorough and diligent in diagnosing the fault and then spend hours on the phone with Solar Edge arranging a replacement inverter under warranty. We are back in business generating power thanks to Joe. I would highly recommend Joe to any person looking for assistance with designing, installing and maintaining a solar system.read more

Florida Power Services recently finished installing our 11.6 K solar system and we cranked it up last week. I have worked with contractors in a field other than solar power and gone through detailed bid procedures. We didn’t do that in this case but we were looking for the same thing we always do in more rigorous bidding processes and that is, finding the least-cost-competent contractor. The simple translation for that term is, “Best Bang for the Buck.”We found that with this company. The owner, Joe Forest, is very direct and honest in his dealings and will let you know what he thinks is the best solution to your energy-producing requirements. I received a detailed quote and checked that, along with what Joe told me about the system components and projected performance. Everything I was told checked out and we got the process started. From there, we immediately received engineering drawings and paperwork for permits and within a week, work began. The installation crew, including the owner have obviously done a few of these and there was an efficient, coordinated effort resulting in a clean, finished product in two days. The panels look sharp and all conduit, inverter boxes and other hardware reflect a top professional installation. Upon completion, the crew took aerial shots of the house and solar hardware via drone and sent us a picture from above showing the finished product.We could not be happier with the entire process and result and give Florida Power Services our highest recommendation.read more
