“We contacted IRE to install some lights in our shop and a 220 dryer outlet. They came right out and did an assessment and gave us a quote. They then worked us into their schedule in a tight timeframe we had. Extremely professional from the first phone call to the end of the project. They exceeded our expectations.”

Norm @ IRE was the second Contractor I contacted after the first Contractor delayed my initial inquiries and follow up calls for almost 3 months.
My initial call to Norm was immediately answered and he was on site the very next day. It didn’t take long for me to realize that Norm was qualified to find and repair my Solar System as well as being a professional and knowledgeable Gentleman. When he returned with the parts and material to repair my system, his teenage son was with him to assist his father. It’s nice to do business with a “family” owned business. If you want to do business with a “qualified and professional” family owned business, CALL NORM @ IRE

We partnered with Norm at independence renewable energy on a 40 panel solar install. The team was very thorough and was able to answer all question pertaining to solar and did so in a professional manner. I would recommend Independence Renewable Energy to my friends and customers.

Norm had come over to take a look at my system that had been installed by another solar installer. Norm was very professional with his evaluation and explained to me what needed to be repaired to bring my system up to code. We scheduled a appointment for the repair and Norm was on time and completed the work in one day. I used Norm again when I needed to reroof my roof. This time Norm had to disassemble all of my solar panels and brackets from the roof while the a new roof was being installed. Norm returned to assemble all of the brackets and solar panels and it went well. IRE is the top of the line with its expertise and knowledge of solar systems. 5 Star from this customer!

29 panel installation on a metal roof.

Our system update was installed on schedule and Norm Johnson was able to interface with our existing controls! After installation of new panels the new system would not operate automatically. We contacted Norm, he set up an appointment to return to our home, and he was able to assess and relocate sensors to allow the system to operate automatically so that it is operating well now. Thanks Norm!

We are pleased and confident in offering an enthusiastic endorsement of Independence Renewable Energy and Norm Johnson.
As a former Journeyman IBEW Electrician, Norm provided a wealth of knowledge and advice not only for the planning and construction of our Solar Array, but also advised us on the Electrical Construction of our new home as well. Norm was one of the very few Contractors that kept appointments and met schedule deadlines!
Norm was also instrumental in guiding us through the application, permitting and connection process with Com. Ed. for both our original 6kW and later 4kW Expansion, as well as our successful applications for the Illinois State Renewable Energy Rebates.
We highly recommend Norm Johnson and Independence Renewable Energy for your Solar Energy Project!
