REC Solar Recognized With 2012 Angie's List Super Service Award

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--REC Solar, a leader in solar system design and installation, today announced the company was honored with Angie’s List’s Super Service Award for 2012 in the Solar Panel category. Less than five percent of all businesses listed on Angie’s List, the nation's leading provider of consumer reviews on local service companies, qualify for this award. REC Solar was selected for this award based on excellent ratings in more than 95 percent of all reviews across the company’s 17 residential installation branches in California, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, and New Jersey.

“REC Solar has been very responsive in handling the complete installation, including building permits, and was able to complete the installation within about three weeks from the initial contact,” customer Del Curtis of San Francisco Bay Area, CA, posted recently on Angie's List. “I cannot speak highly enough regarding our whole experience working with REC Solar and their outstanding personnel and the solar system they provide.”

“Receiving this selective award validates REC Solar’s deep commitment to customer service,” said Ethan Miller, vice president and general manager of REC Solar's Regional Business. “We have built our business on working closely with our customers to carefully understand their needs and provide tailored solutions. Customer service continues to be our number one priority as we help interested home owners realize the financial and environmental benefits of solar power.”

“Overall, the experience (with REC Solar) was outstanding. I have just completed a full calendar year of system operation and now know that I will never pay for electricity again. Not counting the two months of power billing just completed January 10, I have $130 credit toward future consumption, plus the surplus generated November 10 through January 10,” customer Stephen Lewis of Los Angeles, CA continued on Angie’s List, “Yes, I actually generated a surplus during the worst period of the year.”

“It’s a select group of companies rated on Angie’s List that can claim the exemplary customer service record of being a Super Service Award winner,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Our standards for the Super Service Award are quite high. The fact that REC Solar earned this recognition speaks volumes about its dedication providing great service to its customers.”

Angie's List helps consumers have happy transactions with local service professionals in more than 550 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. More than 1.5 million paid households use Angie's List to gain unlimited access to local ratings, exclusive discounts, the Angie's List magazine, and the Angie's List complaint resolution service.
