Randy Velker at Simple Energy Works was very helpful. After purchasing a solar system kit from Simple Energy Works, the solar system was very easy to install. I had to call Randy with a question, and our problem was solved 1,2,3! Now I'm expanding our system three fold, and Simple Energy Works will definitely get our business again!— Ted Polczynski
