Dear Adroit Solar,
We are pleased to offer this recommendation of Adroit Solar based on the work that you have completed for us at numerous sites in Escondido, Vista, Poway, and San Diego. In particular, we would like to call out the creative and reponsive work that Adroit Solar performed at our LEED Platinum rated Kalos Apartments.
Adroit Solar was involved very early in the design and feasibility at Kalos, and helped come up with a combined domestic hot water system and common area photovoltaic system that cost-effectively and efficiently met the needs to provide the highest in energy efficiency and savings while resolving the demands of a mid-rise site with tight roof space.
As you know, Kalos exceeded Title 24 by over 40% much of which is attributable to the hydronic heating and hot water system that Adroit helped design (50 solar collectors which cover 70% of total building use). The 109kV photovoltaic system covers virtually all of the common area use. These design results are being proved in substantial utility savings as the project enters its second year of operation.
We are proud to trust Adroit with the $747,000 at this award winning project while using them at several other sites (both new construction and retrofit) during the last three years.

Dear Adroit Solar,
Please pass on to Ron, Eric and Jim our complements and thanks for doing such an excellent installation of our Vaillant Solar Water Heating System. Both Ron and Eric did terrific jobs to get our system installed professionally in a very tight space. The communications was excellent and Ron stayed late to get our hot water back on by the end of day 2, as we requested. Ron also provided extra services by painting the white pipes so they matched the roof. Eric sniffed out a propane leak at the tank regulator that we had fixed and would not have known about had he not discovered it.We could not have asked for a better installation team. They are great, and we are making hot water and lots of it!

Dear Adroit Solar:
It’s been over 6 weeks since we started using our Vaillant Solar Water Heating system. I wanted to let you know how very pleased we are with how well the system is performing. Totally trouble free, we get hot water within seconds throughout the house. It’s phenomenal.
We wanted to replace two 75 gallon water heaters with solar. We also wanted hot water within seconds at all points of our 6,200 square foot home, inluding a master bedroom upstairs. Because of the distance involved, getting hot water without delay at all bathrooms, kitchen, etc proved to be a challenge to all. We interviewed four solar energy companies. All, except for Adroit solar, proposed two separate independent systems to accommodate our request.
Adroit Solar’s mechanical engineers designed and implemented an efffective system that also looks beautiful on our roof. Your willingness to work with us and the Rancho Santa Fe Art Jury to get our project approved is also very much appreciated. All this for half the cost the other companies proposed. In summary, the whole process from our initial interview, to the installation and the final certification inspection performed by Adroit solar engineers and Vaillant inspectors has been seamless and trouble free.
