“I first found Bland Solar in 2011 when I was looking into installing solar on my home. I interviewed 10 companies and narrowed it down to two. After more discussion and bids between the two, I chose Bland Solar. At the time I felt that Bland had the best product, best price, and best service. I have not been disappointed and the service and product have been exceptional.

In 2013 our Church was trying to lower our monthly costs. One idea was to reduce or eliminate our electrical costs with solar. We have a small congregation without huge contributions. We were between a rock and a hard spot. How do we reduce our monthly expenses and still afford to go solar?

We interviewed two companies, and we ended up going with Bland Solar. Glenn Bland worked very closely with the leadership of our church. He was able to offer quality panels for a very competitive price. He did everything possible to help us afford solar at our church.

The performance of the solar system has been a life saver for our congregation. Today we have NO ELECTRIC BILL. In fact, we get a little money back from PG&E. The system will pay for itself in 9 years. Our small congregation can now meet its financial budget, as well as afford to open our facility to outside organizations that support kids and our community even during the hot summer months. Thank you Glenn and Bland Solar for your efforts in helping us.”

"Everyone we dealt with was courteous, professional, friendly, easy to contact & went above & beyond to make sure we were well informed. The process started quickly, it was seamless and all timelines were met. It is hard to believe that everyone we dealt with represented the company impeccably!!"

"Had the best experience from point of inquiry, salesman knowledge. Not pushy or aggressive. Gave me ample time, one year, and did not harass with calls. Gave me time to do more research with other companies, who were aggressive. Salesman, Colter, did not even seem like a salesman. More of a Solar Product Specialist. Very detailed and never in a hurry. Answered all our questions with clear knowledge."

"Bland Solar not only met our expectations but exceeded them. From the time Jim (salesman) called me I felt very comfortable with the process of installing solar. He made sure all of our questions were answered and gave us more information than we knew we needed.

The install team was very thorough with their communication and meeting their timeline. They were very professional, clean, and organized. The County Inspector wanted something and the Bland Contact that was here made sure they had it the next day to get the Final Inspection completed. Highly recommend Bland Solar."

Bland was by far the most knowledgeable and professional of the proposals we received.

"Checked on the internet, chose 3 companies for estimates and although Bland wasn’t the cheapest, I had a good feeling about the estimator… meaning I didn’t feel like I was getting taken advantage of :).  The roof looks FABULOUS!!! I really have a ton of appreciation for the workers who busted their a** in the 100 degree heat. Thanks Team Bland :):)"

"Bland Company is an all in one shop for roofing and Solar.  I looked around and did my research with the different solar companies in the area.  All the companies seemed competent enough to install the solar, but I needed a new roof and Bland offered both jobs in my budget. Additionally, Bland used higher quality roofing materials than some of the other roofing companies around.  Brett in sales was very knowledgable and kept his word on all the things we agreed on, both verbally and over email. Brett made the process smooth and flawless. On the roofing side, Vito came out before the roof was installed to go over different options with replacing skylights and facia so I wasn’t having to make last minute decisions.  Scott was there to make sure the roofing job went smooth, and he did just that.  Scott coordinated the install of all new facia, the roof and skylights.  He was very flexible when things needed to be changed, and worked around all problems very easily during the process.  I was very impressed with his willingness to go the extra mile to make the customer happy, which is very hard to find in a contractor these days. I would highly recommend Bland for roofing and solar!"
