They system is currently at 3400 kilowatt surplus . . . my bill is in the negative and I will probably never have an electric bill again. I checked Better Business ratings and how long they have been in business, and AMECO came up at the top.

Solar is the future, you will always have the sun and electricity is just going to get more expensive. As the price goes up, that much more you save.

– Jim Noss, Solar Electric

We started looking around, we went to a few other companies and it just seemed like they were trying to get on the bandwagon to do solar.

So, when we found Pat with AMECO, he had been in the business for years and had a lot of experience. I also found out that he was connected with the lobbyists and he was doing a bunch of the negotiations for solar…and that impressed me.

– Richard Bowman, Solar Electric

We’ve saved on average about $100 a month…so I have good statistics and have saved a lot of money. A friend who lives in Torrance, he said “Don’t even get estimates from anyone, the best one is AMECO.”

The crew is their crew, they are very professional and work hard. They’ve been in business since 1974, I would challenge you to find another solar business that’s been in business that long.

– Carl Morrison, Solar Electric

My electric for the first 6 months this year was $2.56 per month.

Pat not only knows the trade, he’s a representative of a board that testifies in Sacramento on behalf of the solar industry. He knows solar from the ground up, he knows the technology and he’s always up on the latest, state-of-the-art stuff.

– Jerry Shultz, Solar Electric and Solar Hot Water

Our 30 panel SunPower system has been online for 9 months now and it’s even better than what we expected. We have bills that people can’t believe, about $1.65 a month. Most of the time, we are storing additional electricity that can be used later down the line within the year.

The people at AMECO were really easy to work with, no pressure sales…it really was a no brainer.

– Fabrizio Pachano, Solar Electric

AMECO Solar was clearly above the rest for several of reasons. Pat knew the business, he gave me a lot of details about the background, the pros and cons of different manufacturers of the solar panels…and how to analyze cost effectiveness. This was something that none of the other representatives from the other businesses did to my satisfaction. They did not have the depth or breadth of knowledge of solar photovoltaic systems that Pat did.

– Dale Stuart, Solar Electric

At least two times if not three times a day, I’m out watching the meter run backwards, which makes me extremely happy. Also, I’m getting about 50 kilowatts a day, which is more than I use.

When the AMECO person came out, they were very honest and they gave me what the cost was, they knew the product, they knew about solar energy and I felt very comfortable.

– Jim Rheins, Solar Electric



“First off, let me start by telling you how much I absolute LOVE my solar panels!!! AMECO installed my panels and our hope was to bring it down to the Tier 1 Level, but we have had one negative month and almost all the other months have been approximately $2 to $3/month. How wonderful is that?”

Email to AMECO

“This was the third time I have used AMECO and have referred three friends. The owner, Pat, is very knowledgeable and keeps current on all laws and regulations with solar power. I had one warranty issue and it was resolved in a couple of days and I was back to creating electricity. I highly recommend the AMECO team.”

– Richard B., Solar Electric
Long Beach, CA


“I have significant personal experience with home remodels, contractors, and general construction and AMECO set the bar for service and expertise in their area. I am an electrical engineer that is an expert in space solar power systems and AMECO’s expert knowledge of the solar technology and solar power systems were absolutely top notch. If you are looking for cheap solar components that won’t last look elsewhere but if you are looking for the best product on the market at a reasonable price then go with Ameco. Period.”

“Just finished a panel install at the end of January with AMECO and couldn’t be happier.  Our salesman, Todd F was courteous, patient and answered my thousands of questions.  My husband and I received from 4 solar companies and in the end felt VERY confident contracting with AMECO.  The install process was quick and painless.  Overall, our experience was excellent.  We highly recommend Todd and AMECO.”

– Abbie L., Solar Electric
Long Beach, CA


“John Allen was a pleasure to deal with. He went over our electricity usage and helped us decide on how many panels and which type of panel we would use. From then on, everyone we dealt with was professional, knowledgeable and helpful. After using solar for over a year now, I can tell you that the savings are beyond our expectations.”

“Pat Redgate is an excellent solar contractor. Six of my relatives/friends have also used AMECO for solar PV. Go solar!”

– Jerry S., Solar Electric
Long Beach, CA


“AMECO Solar is an excellent company all the way around.  The installation crew was prompt, courteous and finished the job quickly.  All the communication that was necessary during this process was great. I never had to wait very long for a response from David.  Once I even got an email from the CEO addressing a small concern I had!    

We recently received our first Electric Bill that included the entire month on solar, and there were NO electricity charges at all!  (But Edison still charged us $1.74 for “usage”.)  We feel so good about having solar now.  When we retire it will help our budget immensely not to have that whopping $250 a month bill to SCE.  Thank you AMECO Solar, and all of your fine employees for a job well done!”

“I’ve had my solar system for over 5 years now. The installation went smooth, and the system is performing better than projected. I highly recommend Ameco Solar.”

“I just put in a pool and had every trade through my house for 4 months. The crew from Ameco was refreshing. They were on time, thorough and courteous. I didn’t expect this level of service considering the competitive price. I joined Yelp in order to give them this review!”

– Greg G., Solar Pool Heater
Huntington Beach, CA


“My installation was just completed about 4 weeks ago. Everything was awesome. The planning and attention to detail was beyond my expectations. The installation was perfect – not even visible unless you’re on the roof! I’d interviewed some other companies and was totally turned off by the high pressure sales techniques. AMECO was straight-forward and seemed to really understand the entire system, my needs and the industry much better than anyone else. I would HIGHLY recommend.”

– Geoff M., Solar Electric
Rancho Mirage, CA


“We could not have asked for a more professional & knowledgeable contractor. In addition, the personnel were available to answer follow up questions in a timely manner even AFTER the job was completed and paid for. It is rare that we have had such a positive experience with any contractor. We would highly recommend them to anyone seeking solar panels.”

– Ellen C., Solar Electric & Solar Pool Heater
Calabasas, CA


“Great experience! We looked at several companies and this is the only one that sent an engineer that knew what he was talking about. He was able to answer all of our questions and helped us through the entire project.

If you are thinking of solar, these guys need to be on the list”

“Pat, David, and all the folks at AMECO were awesome to work with.  I had several estimates to install PV on my house and AMECO was BY FAR the most reputable, straightforward, and upfront of the companies I dealt with.  There were no high pressure sales tactics or shady “You have to decide today in order to get this price” pressure.  

I can’t say enough positive things about AMECO.  Pat’s been in this line of work for 36 years and knows everything there is to know about solar.  (Did you know that certain types of panels are better suited to inland locations and others for coastal?  No other installer I talked to did!)  I recommend them without reservation!”

– Brett S., Solar Electric
Fullerton, CA


“Yup — this company delivers.  I researched quite a few companies and products before converting my pool to solar heat.  There are a wide range of options out there and I was very concerned with company reliability and longevity (and product warranty servicing), while trying to keep costs down.  

From John, the sales guy, to David, the ops manager, to the crew that really went above and beyond to deal with a challenging install, I was extremely impressed. No high pressure sales pitch, just lots of client education. Every question I had (and I had many) was answered to my complete satisfaction, and very quickly. When you are laying out a big chunk of change, you want your high expectations to be met. Mine were.”

– Janet S., Solar Pool Heater


“The best and most knowledgeable solar outfit in Southern California. They installed both solar heat and solar PV electrical systems for me. My hot water and electric bills went to peanuts. There is no maintenance (except occasional hosing off the dust off the panels) and always high reliability. They tackled very difficult location and angles, with delicate roof tiles.”

– Harry P., Solar Electric & Solar Hot Water
Long Beach, CA


“AMECO designed and built a very sophisticated solar system utilizing both photovoltaic and hot water energy technologies for my home.   It has never given me a problem.  11 years later it is as well as when it was first installed.”

“Ameco installed a second PV system on our roof.  The first system which we also bought from them was installed in 2003.  I originally selected this contractor due to the knowledge he displayed about the products and the installation process.  Both systems are functioning perfectly. My experience with this contractor has always been excellent. They are punctual, do excellent high quality work and are instantly responsive to any requests for follow-up. The owner of the company is well known and highly respected in the industry. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any PV or solar hot water heating system work. An EXCELLENT contractor!”

“AMECO Solar is the best solar company in the business. They have been around since 1974! Go ask any other solar company how long they have been around. If your roof starts to leak 20 years from now, do you think the company that has been around for the past five years will be around?

They were professional, thorough, and they knew what they were doing. I stopped the river of money going to SCE and I highly recommend that you do the same by having AMECO install a solar system on your house. FYI…I am not a friend or relative of someone who works at AMECO and they did not pay me to give such a glowing review. They actually earned it.”

– Tim R., Solar Electric
Hacienda Heights, CA


“Our September 2013 installation went very smoothly. We had our roof replaced at the same time. The solar installation crew worked closely with the roofer. Overall it was a positive experience. Everything went along on time and as promised. I am very pleased with the result.

To friends and family who have asked us about our solar panel installation we received our first full month’s billing from the Robber Barons of electrical power. It is $24.79 + $1.76 tax for a total of $26.55, down from $353 for the same period last year. We’re happy!”

– Ralph S., Solar Electric
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA


“I was very pleased throughout the process with the professionalism of all of Ameco’s employees.  Everything was done on time, communication was good, they worked neatly, with debris cleaned up at the end of each day, and cooperated with the other parties involved regarding scheduling and inspections.  

This solar system is a net metering system, so I look forward to getting a little money back at the end of each year from my utility provider, since I believe the system will generate more electricity than I will use.

Ameco has assured me that I can call them any time with questions, and encouraged me to call when I get the first electric bill, so they can explain its details to me, since there are taxes and fees that will still show up as payable on the bill, even if I owe nothing for the electricity itself.”
