We had Ecohouse Solar install a 14kw system a few months ago. They were very knowledgeable through every step of the process, and answered all of my questions in detail. I wanted a clean look to the system, and their install team made every effort to make the final appearance of the system as discreet as possible with no external conduit visible. I would definitely recommend this team to anyone considering solar for their home.
Ecohouse recently completed the installation of a 8.4 kw/h system on our roof. I have never given a contractor a 5 star review but in this case I am happy to do so for the first time. From beginning to end this process was fantastic. Mike Hopper was completely honest and transparent from the first moment and communicated with us every step of the way. Everything happened exactly when we were told they would happen (which I consider a miracle) and the team doing the installation was awesome. If I ever expand my system Eco House will be my only call.
I contacted ecohouse after reading their reviews on Google. They were exactly as advertised. Mike Hopper did an exceptional job with the lay out for the solar panels as well as working with our HOA to get it approved for construction. The installation crew and office was professional, prompt, and were excellent with communication. The work they did was professional and outstanding. I highly recommend them if you are considering adding solar for your home power needs!
I agree with the other reviewers that Ecohouse Solar is outstanding!
Produce enough energy to offset the full electrical consumption of our home and electric vehicle throughout the year while simultaneously providing us with daytime backup in the event of a grid failure.
16.2KW system consisting of:
Panels: 45 x Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G10+ 360
Microinverters: 45 x IQ8PLUS-72-2-US
Enphase Sunlight Backup: 8 x Circuits
The sales process with Ecohouse was smooth sailing. Mike Hopper was our Project Manager. I cannot say enough great things about him personally and the entire Ecohouse Solar team. They took care of all the permits and did a great job with the installation.
Our solar system worked perfectly from the day it was installed and the installation quality was top notch. We did experience one issue with the sunlight backup that was ultimately traced back to a defective board in the system controller which resulted in intermittent failure to control loads. Enphase sent out a field technician to troubleshoot the problem and replace the board under warranty. Problem solved.
We live in Ohio and our solar system was activated in late October 2022 so our first full bill with net metering didn’t come out until late December. That’s definitely not the best time of year for solar production. Our electricity bill fell to 1/4 of its normal amount by our February billing cycle and we had a small surplus by our March billing cycle. I just read that our utility company AEP Ohio will be increasing rates by 30% this summer. I just smiled knowing that I made the right choice both to go Solar and in my choice of Ecohouse Solar. You should strongly consider them too!

Calculate How Many Solar Panels You Need For Your Home
Our solar project calculator gives customized results based on your electric bill, solar panel production, solar array size and electric rates to show you a solar array that will meet your household needs.
Your monthly electric bill. Our tool takes your monthly electric bill in dollars, and divides it by the current average price for electricity, to get the number of kilowatt-hours of electricity you need each month.
The production of a solar panel. In our region, 1kw of solar panel array will produce roughly 1,200 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year. The average size of a solar panel in 2022 is 370 watts. If you have a $120/month electric bill and live in Central Ohio, where the average rate for electricity is $0.15 per kilowatt-hour. 120/0.15 = 800 * 12 = 9600 kilowatt-hours needed each year. 9600 kWh / 1,200kWh/yr = 8kw solar array.
Technical sizing of a solar panels. To translate the example above of 8kw of solar into an installable solar array, our tool does some rounding based on actual solar panel systems. We use pricing pulled from average system sizes installed over the last year. Your actual results may vary. For example, if your roof is not ideally oriented, or you have shade trees in the yard, that will reduce a solar panel’s performance. Using our experience and past years’ install data, we know that 8kw solar array will be made up of roughly 22 solar panels (if your home or business offers an ideal location for solar panels).
Your location. Our calculator is designed to give you customized results based on the specific electricity rates in Central Ohio.
