I've been chatting with the folks at SolarCity for the past few weeks, and am considering installing a system. I see them everywhere, and the sales pitch is pretty convincing.

My question for the group is: why are there so many really negative reviews? Consumer Affairs and Yelp are both filled with customers that can't say enough bad things about them.

Does anyone here have solar in their home? Anyone with SolarCity? Opinions? Thoughts? Recommendations? I'm interested in the environmental aspect of this more than the financial, but I don't want to get saddled with something that either is way more expensive, doesn't work, or makes my house hard to sell (or leak).
