“From the initial quote to the final installation, all done professionally and with the upmost respect to my home and property.  I have never had a question go unanswered after the installation either often by the owner himself.   I highly recommend ReThink electric for any of your solar needs.  I’m a believer that we must use renewables.  ReThink people seem to be passionate about the benefits of this.”

John Talbott | Morris, IL

“Rethink Electric installed a 22.4 kW system on my business in Geneva. The process couldn’t have been smoother. We first met with Rethink technical personnel to understand how we could benefit from a solar system. Everything was explained very well. They provided us with several alternatives along with the pros and cons, enabling us to make informed decisions.

Since we were the first commercial solar system in our town, Rethink management met with city personnel to ensure that a net metering program would apply to our large system. Rethink was flexible throughout the process and met all targets. The solar system has now been in place over two months and we couldn’t be happier. This is a company I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. They are knowledgeable and responsive.”

“Rethink Electric did an outstanding job on our project from the beginning starting with the site visit and survey, modeling the system with a number of different configurations, estimating system paybacks  and finally the installation. They provided reasonable estimates for expected production that included factoring tree shading and so far their projections over the first 2 months are close to the energy that the system has generated. They handled all aspects of our installation including preparation and submission of the paperwork for net metering, permits, SRECS, etc. The entire staff that we interacted with including the initial customer support tech, the administrative contact, the installation team and the company owner were always easy to contact, supportive  and responded quickly to any questions or issues we brought up. The installation team worked well together and very efficiently.

The system was installed neatly and did not negatively detract from our home’s architecture.  Conduit routing was installed in the most inconspicuous way possible and very cleanly. The installation went very smoothly but unfortunately a week after the project was completed, a pine tree dripped pine sap on a number of panels. After the tree was removed, Rethink  came back and carefully cleaned the affected panels even though this was not their responsibility. For all aspects of the project and even after, Rethink did a beautiful job.”

Jeffrey Mack | West Chicago, IL

“Mike Nicolosi and his team from Rethink Electric did a fantastic job on our new solar system.  We have had the system now for about three months and we couldn’t be happier.  Everyone was professional, knowledgeable and friendly.  Based on multiple bids, their pricing is competitive.  The team did a great job all the way through the process – from upfront planning through installation and the submittal of the required paperwork both for ComEd (net-metering) and for the solar energy credits through the Illinois SREC program. 

These folks are pros.  I highly recommend them.”

“Rethink Electric did a great job on my house in Oak Brook.  The work was neat, done very professionally, and completed in 2 days.  System is working well.  I would recommend them to anyone interested in installing a solar system in their home or business.”

Raj Rajaram | Oak Brook, IL

“We researched solar power and looked for highly rated companies to receive bids to install a 5 KW array at our home. After reviewing 3 complete bids, we were most impressed by the superior responsiveness, the excellent pricing, and excellent attentiveness to our questions that Mike Nicolosi and his team provided. Knowing that Mike would be the installer on the job, and that he was the one available for answering follow-up questions from the initial proposal gave us confidence that the job would be a success. To top it off, his bid for our project came in with the best package and pricing to meet our needs and budget.  We wanted an installation within a specific time frame, so Mike worked quickly to get our permitting secured, and our project underway. I received clear email instructions of where to sign on paperwork for ComEd so that would be completed as quickly as ComEd would process it (ComEd is not in a rush to lose money to us solar powered folks!). Our installation was complete in a quick 3 days (Thursday – Saturday), with us up and running with an app to track our solar power production.

The entire process was seamless – clearly orchestrated by a pro! Mike can easily answer any question you have about solar power systems and how to build the most efficient system for your needs and budget, and he has put together an awesome team that installs a top notch, clean power system with outstanding follow through on the details (permitting, approvals, inspections, etc.). Highly recommended!”

“Mike & his team did a great job on all aspects of our solar system. They continue to offer great support! We love our system. We plan to use them again to install a 220 volt charging station in our garage for an electric car we plan to buy. We highly recommend them. These guys are real professionals.”
