Customer Testimony

Our experience began with Bhima who impressed us immediately with his knowledge of how to test our site. We were not sure we had enough exposure, but he assured us we did and he was right. Because of some delay with the company we missed the current rate for the tax break. That was disappointing. The work finally started in the winter and we were up and running in early spring. There were no mishaps, only cold weather issues which went away. We have been very satisfied with the production that we get which covers our use and more. The apps that we use give us a way to see what is going on, production and usage. The Tesla power walls are the way to go. The program is new to Vermont and definitely worth taking advantage of. All the staff members were friendly and easy to work with. We are pleased with this project and would recommend Power Guru to anyone considering solar power in this area. In fact we have already done some word of mouth promotion.

This is our second system installed by the folks at Power Guru. From the planning and design phase to project closeout, they were professional, detailed, and great to work with. They even helped us set up a shared net metering system with another household through GMP, and sized our system to generate sufficient power to cover the electric vehicle we plan to purchase. Can’t recommend them enough!

My old system using Xantrex inverters and lead acid batteries would require so much generator run time that it would use the entire contents of a 1,000 gallon propane tank over the course of a winter.
I purchased two systems from Power Guru late last year.  Winter arrived and despite not being completely finished generator run time is greatly reduced.  The 1,000 gallon tank remains 40% full.  The Discover lithium ion batteries charge very quickly making generator run times shorter and less frequent. Software gives the user control that was not even a dream prior to this system.  I recommend Bhima, Glenn and their staff to any wishing to install or upgrade a solar power generating system.

In March ‘19 we had Power Guru install an array on our VT Cape Cod home. Every phase of the installation went flawlessly. I can’t say enough about the crew. They were a group of really congenial and hard working people. They secured all the permits. The job took about four days and then we were up an running. The system has been problem free. Bhima projected our energy production and his calculations were spot on. To say the least , our monthly energy costs are now minimal. The system will pay for itself in about 6 years. We are very satisfied customers.

Thank you and all the PowerGuru guys. You were all great and were very professional and knowledgeable . The install went great.The price was competitive and you use top rated solar panels, etc.
It was important to us to use someone local to do the work.
Thanks, again!

Power Guru was the only solar contractor that helped us plan for our future alternative power uses and needs: insulation, cold weather heat pump, heat pump water heater and a back up battery system. The Solar PV system that he installed has performed extremely well. 
Bhima has been instrumental in developing Community Solar here in Bennington County and continues to work for development of solar availability for low and medium income families.

Renee Byrd

We are so excited! The men did a terrific job installing our batteries! Neat and tidy and careful. Al is so knowledgeable and polite. Just in time for any potential power failure we might have. Excited for the next sunny day. Thank you so much for getting us on the list.
Camilla Williams

Bhima is very knowledgeable about any questions you might have about solar!! Give him a call and see how he could help you save on your electric bill!

Jason Lillie

Bhima and Power Guru are great. They came in thousands less than a similar system a friend got through another company. The installers are friendly and professional. I recommend them highly!

Timothy Mitchell Scoggins

We installed our initial array in 2015, then added to it in 2016 and then again just recently. Our initial array installation eliminated our electric bill that was running about $200 a month average. We then installed the second smaller set of panels that allowed us to charge our new electric car, thus eliminating about $100 of gasoline costs per month. Soon we installed electric heat pumps for heating and cooling our home and shop, and that’s why we added the latest addition to our array, to power the heat pumps. That saved about $600 per winter in heating oil costs. So in total the array saves us over $4000 per year in purchased energy costs, and allows us to use cleaner solar energy to power our home and vehicle. Plus, during the 2016 installation, we added a battery backup system that is charged by the array and powers our house and shop whenever the electric grid is down. It is a great help so that we can provide care for our farm animals in those times when the weather is bad and the grid power is out.

We decided after moving to VT that we wanted to do solar. We used several companies to provide us an estimate. From the beginning, we were impressed with Power Guru. Bhima came right away and at first, did an in home analysis to see what changes on the inside we could make to make our home more efficient (and save a lot of money by getting a smaller system). He was upfront with us that we weren’t “ideal candidates” given the direction of our roof, but still worked hard to design a system that worked for us.

When it came time to start the project, I kid you not, I have never been more impressed with contractors. They told us it would take 2 months. It took maybe 4 weeks. People were always, ALWAYS working and Bhima and Hogan always answered our emails quickly.

I’m happy we installed solar but more importantly, I’m happy we went with Power Guru. I highly recommend them!

My wife and I had a net metering solar system installed at our home in Peru, VT. Bhima is incredibly knowledgeable, presented us with all of our options, and handled everything with Green Mountain Power! His crew was very professional and the final product looks great and operates perfectly. Phil Easton & Heidi Chua

Very knowledgeable and easy to work with!

Bo Bergman

Power Guru installed our ground based 3 kw system and we liked it so much that we expanded with a second installation of 2kw on our south facing roof. Along with that we had them coordinate that installation with a solar hot water system, also on the roof. So now we happily cover all our needs with net metering and have added our daughter to our net metering group. The system has been working very well for several years now.

Solon Rhode

We had a small off-grid solar electric plant installed by the Power Guru. Nice company to work with. Bhima has the knowledge and experience to engineer exactly what you want from concept to working electric energy.

Doug Ginter

You guys were great!

In the summer of 2015 my wife and I decided to explore solar energy possibilities. We chose Power-Guru because of their strong reputation and upon the recommendation of friends. This was to be a two house application –for our residence as well as that of an adjacent rental property. We supplied the history of usage at both locations which formed the basis of a detailed proposal. The proposal was thorough in every regard, and give us the analysis we needed to make a decision. Installation was completed that fall, in a timely and professional manner. We have now had sufficient time to compare electric generation estimates in the proposal with actual generation, and are pleased with the accuracy of their estimates.   The system has performed as promised.  We have had no technical issues requiring a call back, and are fully satisfied with both the accuracy of the proposal and with the performance of the system.  Power-Guru is a well run and professional company, and I would encourage anyone  thinking about a solar application to give them serious consideration.

Jim Horst

Power Guru did much more than simply install some solar panels. We were provided with an incredibly detailed analysis of our home’s energy use, which was used to size the system to fit our needs. It is exciting to watch my electric bill go from $250/month to having my utility company owe me money some months.

I can assure you that I’ve never been more impressed or satisfied with any company with which I’ve done business over my sixty-four years. If you are considering making the smart move to producing your own electricity, you would be well served to do business with Power Guru.
