ISLAND PARK, N.Y., Feb. 22, 2016
- SunPower by EmPower Solar, who was recently named the only SunPower Master Dealer on Long Island, has earned two awards this month that reflect the company’s consistently high level of customer service and quality workmanship.
On February 18, the company accepted an award from Building Inspectors Association of Nassau County (BIANCO) at their annual dinner in Franklin Square. BIANCO chose SunPower by EmPower Solar as this year’s “Industry Leadership Award” recipient.
“SunPower by EmPower Solar has shown their commitment to strict standards including the National Electrical Code and the N.Y.S. Building and Residential Code requirements,” said Stephen Haramis, President of BIANCO. “Building inspectors take special note of quality workmanship and attention to detail. SunPower by EmPower Solar consistently demonstrates their dedication to quality installations and excellence in the construction field along with attentive customer service, which is why they have been selected for this year’s award.”.
“On Long Island, with dozens of municipal layers, we know how important it is to follow the codes from each jurisdiction. To be recognized by the Building Inspectors Association for our work is a wonderful compliment,” said Greg Sachs, Chief Operations Officer at SunPower by EmPower Solar. “We are very proud of our workmanship and are pleased to know that our high quality work is being recognized not only by homeowners, but by building inspectors across the region.”
The company also earned the service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of service provided to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2015.
“Providing an amazing customer experience from the first phone call to the final installation is the most important thing we can do as a company. Every single employee embraces this philosophy every day. We know most homeowners only go solar once, and we see our relationship with them as a 30 year partnership, so we do our best to ensure they are extremely happy with every step of the process,” said David G. Schieren, CEO of SunPower by EmPower Solar. “We are glad to see that our efforts are recognized by our clients and they are giving us top ratings – being referred is the best compliment we can receive.”
Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality. In 2015, SunPower by EmPower Solar received 20 reviews, and earned an “A” overall score every single time.
“Only about 5 percent of the solar companies in Long Island have performed so consistently well enough to earn our Super Service Award,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “It’s a really high standard.”
