We’ve got news – really big news. San Diego’s favorite solar installer, Sunline Energy, recently won the Super Service Award from Angie’s List.

But what exactly is this award?

Come to think of it – what is Angie’s List?

So What Exactly Is Angie’s List?

Founded in 1995, Angie’s List is a publicly traded company that offers online crowd-sourced reviews of local businesses and stores. Unlike traditional review websites that hire “professional” critics, Angie’s List collects real input from real people – just like you.

Users grade individual businesses using an A – F report card, based on things like:

  • Price
  • Quality
  • Responsiveness
  • Punctuality
  • Professionalism

There is also an overall GPA that averages all of the sub scores together.

The concept is similar to Yelp, with 2 important differences:

  • Angie’s List is almost a decade older, so it is a bit more established.
  • Angie’s List is a paid subscription model, meaning that there are no anonymous reviews. All testimonials and grades are certified before being published.

This is not to knock Yelp. Sunline Energy is happy to announce that it has 57 separate 5-star Yelp reviews, which is more than any other solar installer in San Diego.

What Is the Angie’s List Super Service Award?

Every year, Angie’s List recognizes select businesses within each geographic market for their exceptional service. In any given year, fewer than 5% of companies are eligible, making the Super Service Award a rare honor.

In order to qualify for the Award, companies must maintain A-ratings in the following categories:

  • Overall GPA – since first appearing on Angie’s List
  • 3-year GPA – average reviews from the previous 36 months
  • Recent GPA – average reviews from the previous calendar year (November 1 – October 31)

Maintaining this type of grade point average for 12, 36, or 120 months is exceptionally difficult. All it takes is one dissatisfied customer to ruin a perfect track record. So needless to say, we were over the moon when we learned that our solar PV outfit ranked among 2014’s A-listers.

But more than anything, we’re humbled.

Qualifying for Angie’s List Super Service Award isn’t something that a judge decides. It isn’t even something that a panel of judges decides.

The ultimate decision comes down to all of the individual users who make up the Angie’s List ecosystem. And collectively, you all chose to recognize Sunline Energy as one of the top-rated solar installers in all of San Diego.

For that, we thank you.
