In Our Customers' Words
My husband and I wanted to tell you that we LOVE the Solatubes you installed. We bought our home several years ago and the bathroom and hallway were very dark, so you suggested Solatubes for both areas. It was the very first improvement we made to our home and the one we love the most. We look up at the light shining in and we comment that it was "the best money we ever spent." We rarely have to turn on lights because it is bright enough with the tube. Not only does it save on electricity, but it looks beautiful with the sunlight pouring in. And, of course, my husband adds, it is maintenance free.
One other point, for those who suffer from S.A.D. like me, the light is really uplifting and helps my moods in the winter.
I just wanted you to know that after nearly 4 years, we still love it!!!
“My Solatube installation experience exceeded my expectations in every way. In addition, the results are truly enlightening, to say the least. The installer was intelligent, informative and just plain great at installing quickly, and respecting my home by thorough cleanup. We collaborated on installation of two units and also transitioning an existing big box store tube...what a huge difference it made and the diffuser choices were wonderfully appropriate for the different locations. I was so excited walking into each room after final completion and get to enjoy the daylight effects hourly! Thanks so much. The Solatube brand is the only tube to consider!”
“This is the 2nd Solar Light Brennan has installed in our home. WOW! What a difference it has made in a room with no windows, where a light had to be left on all the time, or turned on and off continually. We love our Solar Lights. The Farmers”
I love my Solatube! It is even better than the one we put in our last house several years ago...Ya’ gotta’ love technology! And you are right I have gone in & tried to turn “the light” off, pretty funny.
My husband's shop had no windows so it was imperative that some natural light be available. We found the solar tube booth at the Redmond Home Show. They came out and measured for the solar tube and pinpointed the best spot above my husband's shop bench. It was installed in a very professional manner. No mess, no fuss and exactly where it was needed.
Our solar tube story is … Brennan installed 4 solar tubes for us … 2 in the kitchen, 1 in the hall and 1 in the front hall bathroom. The front hall bathroom has no window and it was very dark before the solar tube was installed … now it is like there is a light on. The kitchen was very dark as the patio overhang shaded the windows. We had Brennan install 2 “14” inch solar tubes and you wouldn’t believe the difference … we highly recommend solar tubes to “brighten your day”!!!

The Solatube I had installed in my home solved my dark living room problem beyond my wildest dreams. The unfiltered light brightens the room all day long, even on cloudy days. This was a much better and cost-effective solution than breaking a wall and adding a new window, something I had considered. Thanks Solatube Bend!
We had a Solatube installed in our small walk-in closet last spring and we are 100% satisfied with the product. The lighting is amazing, even on the darkest winter days our closet is completely lit and there is no need to turn the light on. The installer was knowledgeable and professional in his work. It was a quick and easy process and we couldn't be happier with the results. The only negative in this situation was that we waited so long to have it done!!
I didn't attach any photo's because it's in a small closet and pictures just don't do it justice.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Solatube as an installer of Solar tubes. MY new home went from dingy to zingy as sunlight was brought into the kitchen and living room areas. Brennan was clean and tidy in his work, and very knowledgeable.
He even helped me install a new light from the tallest spot of the room 'because he was up there anyway!'
The product is great, the crew is lovely and the effect is amazing!
My house is a work still in progress, however, I particularly enjoyed, last week when one of my framers looked for the switch to turn off the light coming from your Solatube.
What can you do with a manufactured home's kitchen, oddly placed in the middle of the house, with no outside windows and is always dark? Add lights, right? Add more lights? Even with all those lights, the room was still dark enough that even on the brightest day all the overhead lights were required. We heard from a friend who had just had a Solatube installed in their house. We were sold on it and had one installed in our kitchen that is now always bright. In fact, the last full moon, the kitchen looked like we had turned on a spotlight in the room. We've never regretted our decision and hope to get another one installed soon.
My testimonial is quite different. My dog has epilepsy and the Solatube plus a night light in the utility room where she sleeps have eliminated her seizures completely. Of course the Solatube also allows me to pass through this otherwise dark room without turning on a light., we are completly satisfied. Lani and Belle the dog
"Just today, on this late january day, i took pause standing in my kitchen, and had to stop to absorb the new quality of light shining through the Solatube. There was a golden sparkle & glimmer I had not previously noticed throughout the winter. With spring's increasing light and the sun's subtle changes in sky position (I am guessing), this post-yoga light had something different in it. It filled me with a deep connection not only to the joy of the changing season's light, but also to the sun itself. It felt like I was in a silent "suryanamaskara" (salutation to the sun), and the gratitude flowed all around."
Brennan Morrow and Solar Light and Energy have always done outstanding work and presented themselves both professionally and as problem solvers. I would recommend Brennan without reservation, and look forward to doing business with Solar Light and Energy in the years to come.

I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are with our Solatube! If you recall, we were reluctant to cut a hole in our brand new roof but wanted to provide some natural light to the room where our dogs spend their time while we are at work. We are happy to report that we have had no problems with the installation and feel really good about saving energy, too!

I am sooo happy with the decision to put a Solatube in our laundry room, I knew after seeing the demo at the Redmond Sportsman Festival that the back door area /laundry room was perfect for the Solatube.
The whole process of scheduling the installation, and the actual day the Solatube was installed was super easy, and professional.
I was impressed and very pleased how clean the work area was after the quick 2 hours it took to complete my Solatube installation.
Thank-you, Kim Knox
We had two Solatubes installed in our home to increase light in the bathrooms. Even during the darker winter months, we rarely need to turn on a light. Hardly a day goes by that I don't comment on how much I LOVE our Solatubes.
We highly recommend this company, and its products, for a great energy saving solution.
Brennan is exceptionally well educated about the products and gave us quality information, assisting us in making our decisions. Brennan's work is top-notch, efficient, and he cleans up nicely when he has completed his work! AHMEN!
A bonus: The price is more than reasonable!

I got 2 solatubes installed in my last house, one in lliving room and one in kitchen - WOW - what a difference in light and NO hassles from skylights and there problems. I'm planning to ask Brennan to put one in my new house, for the great light increase, the beauty of them, and because Brennan was so personable and knowledgeable with an honest and well run business.
Solarlight installed three solar tubes in our home and the results were a brighter interior. We really enjoy the additional light which makes the house seem more open. Also, the installation was very professional, quick and clean (no mess during or afterwards). Bob and Barbara
We really like our solatubes. Having them means that many times we don't need to turn on a light, saving electricity. Your company did a wonderful job. Everybody who I've talked to on the phone and in person knew the product and were easy to talk to. Both solatubes were installed quickly, and the workers left NO mess.
(It has been fun to watch guests try to turn off the light!)
We are big on natural light and have 7 skylights in our home. However, an interior hallway was without any natural light and needed help. A Solar Tube was installed in less than 4 hours and now provides a bright, natural light. Often, I find myself reaching for the light switch thinking I need to turn it off just to realize it is the natural light transmitted from the Solar Tube. Don- Bend, OR
You installed three solar tubes for on my property. I was impressed that you didn't try to sell me more than I needed and that you were familiar with your product and what it would do in the various rooms. Your attitude and workmanship are wonderful, and any mess made during the installation was cleaned up immediately. What was even more impressive, when I subsequently found water leaking into the bedroom through the solar tube, was that you came round straight away, and on investigation found that in fact a vent on the roof was the culprit, which you taped up until I could get a roofer out, and fixed the damage done around the solar tube, all at no cost.
When I bought another house you installed three more solar tubes, again proving your expert knowledge of where to put the tubes for the best effect. Even though the job proved more difficult than you anticipated because of the varying roof angles and heights, you did it efficiently and with good humor.
Consequently I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others, on condition you are available to do more work for me in the future, even when you are very busy (joke!)
Our small interior (as opposed to a wall with windows) bathroom needed some help in lighting. Then I saw the Ad that Brenned had posted about a Solatube.
We had always wanted a tube to be installed somewhere in the house, and this bathroom was the perfect place. So I called Brennan.
The results was amazing as to how much light that lets in. In the midle of the day, it's the brightest lit room in the whole house. It also brightens up the hallway leading to the bathroom. I would highly recommend Brennan to install a tube in your house. You will be happy with his work.
We are very pleased with the extra light the solar tube adds to our dining and kitchen area. It brightens the day!
It was a dark and gloomy February day and the hallway would have been nothing but deep shadows. I might have tripped on the carpet. But, no! I had a Sola-Tube installed and lived happily ever after. I never have to turn on the hall light anymore. I can even see well enough on a clear night with a full moon when I need to raid the refrigerator...without having to turn on the light!
"I love my solatubes. They make the hallway so much safer since I'm too lazy to turn on the light since I'm just walking through. Now I can toss things in the laundry room and not hit or trip over anything. They really work even with snow on the roof."
We can highly recommend installing a solatube. I constructed a new Lodge in
2008. You folks did an analysis and suggested we might not be satisfied
with the results of a 10 inch tube that had to transfer light almost 20 feet
and around a couple of bends too. We appreciated the straight forward
analysis but we went ahead anyway and are very happy we did it. We know it
makes a world of difference over not having it. It is a free 100+ Watt
light on all day....pretty cool. It is in an overnight rental. Some folks
have even called to ask how to turn off the light. We tell them if they can
find the switch, they can stay for free....LOL.

One end of our home was very dark as two of the rooms opening into a hall had no windows (laundry room & bathroom) so we had you install a solatube in each of those rooms. We no longer have to turn on the lights every time we enter either of those rooms, and the hall is no longer dark and dreary. Huge and wonderful difference!
Also, the actual work you did was perfect and completed very quickly, had we known what a difference the solatubes would make and how non-invasive and simple the installation would be with no mess at all left behind – we would have had this done much sooner! Thank you for doing such a great job!
The only problem we had was getting over constantly trying to turn the lights off during the day! Awesome!
We are very pleased with the solatubes Brennan and his crew installed in our hallway. They transformed a dark hall into a well lit walkway. During the instillation Brenan discovered a potential water leak issue and corrected it before it became a costly repair. We would highly recommend Brennan for any lighting needs. Russ & Sally
I would be more than happy to tell anyone how great these solar lights are. My house was so dark before we put in the lights, I could hardly stand it. The service we received was excellant. I have told other people how wonderful they are and some friends of mine, Bev & Steve from the bison ranch put them in when they bulit their new house. The contractor screwed up when the windows were all put in on the back side of the house. The bedrooms have light, but the living room, dining room and kitchen did not.
I have had my two solar tubes in my living room / dining room for two years now and I love them! They lighten up the room significantly and add value to the house. They look really cool at night as your walking by the house and you see a little bit of interior light coming out of them. The installer was quick and professional and I have had no issues with any sort of leaking around the tubes. These are low to no maintenance and I would recommend them to anyone looking to bring in a little more light to an area.
I love my solatube! I get day after day of delightful surprises with it. There is nothing quite like opening the door to my once dark washroom, and voila! There is light. I'm not sure how long its been in, at least a year, and the thrill has never diminished. I get extra surprises on full moons, cloudy, windy days, and even dusk. I don't have to remind my husband to "turn the lights off", because he dosen't turn them on. The installation was quick, efficient, and the installer very personable. It became quickly obvious that he knew what he was doing. This is important, when they're making a hole in your roof!! My only regret..is that I can't have a few more solatubes placed in my home. When the installer was here, we shared some other "dark places" in our home, but unfortunately for us, they're not conducive to placing a solatube. We've one dark bathroom, with no natural light...:(:( I'm often in there thinking....oh, if we could only get another solatube.
I'd recommend the product, and the installer. If I every build another home, it will have solatubes. Affordable, practical, it feels like the right thing to do.
Yep..I love our solatube.
Its always a pleasure to work with Solatube and our customers are always very happy with there services. The products they offer are great and everyone is very excited once they go in. Thanks for all your dedication to your trade and Brighting our day!!

We love our Solatube! It transformed our bathroom from a black hole into a room that feels like it belongs in the house. Brennan installed it in just a couple of hours. I recommend him highly. Marge
I have 3 solatubes in my house and couldn't be happier with the service I received from Brennan Morrow. He was on time and did an excellent job on installation. The solatubes have made a huge difference brightening areas in my home that were dark and dreary. I am getting ready to have another one installed in my laundry room and would not use any other company then Brennan Morrow's.
Thank you, Pat
Two Solatubes were installed in rooms in my home that have no windows. Now we think we forgot to turn off the lights in the laundry room and the guest bath! This is probably some of the smartest money I have ever invested in my life. As a bonus, the installer was pleasant, efficient, and clean. It is definitely a win-win for me and I love the brighter world I live in! Sydney
"I love my Solatubes". Tim
We LOVE our solar tube! It's a great source of natural light and it looks so cool. We'd like them all over our house! We have the largest size in our living room and its a great source of light at night as well, reflecting the moon down into our living room giving us a perfect night light. Thanks for brightening our days and our nights.
Ann Marie & Ralph
I have two Solatubes and I love them! Brennan and his staff were quick, clean and a pleasure to have in my home. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to add light to their home without increasing energy bills.
I love my solar tube. I had 2 installed and I liked it so much I referred another friend in La Pine and they installed 3. I had an issue with heat loss but they came right out and fixed that by insulating around the solar tube. I would use them again!

About 8 years ago we moved from a light filled house in Crooked River Ranch into a home in SE Bend. We loved the tall mature pine trees on our new property and the shade they provided. However, the shade also gifted us with less sunlight. I was a stay-at-home mom with a newborn and a toddler so my “world” became really centered on our house – playdates in the yard, crafts in the play room, naps throughout the day. I started feeling “closed in”.. and unable to connect with Mother Earth in the way that I needed to feel energized and connected.
As I glanced at the pack of “advertisements” that came in the mail.. I saw a coupon for a “SOLATUBE”. And I thought.. What is a Solatube? So.. I did some research. I checked out the website and gave Mr. Brennan Morrow a phone call. Within a day or so, he was able to stop by and assess my needs and offer me an estimate. Brennan himself was a de”light” and his “sales” pressure was nonexistent. Good thing for me since I do not respond well AT ALL to being pressured. He estimated pricing based on my needs and casually left that sheet along with some detailed Solatube information on my countertop. His parting words were “ Just let us know if we can brighten your day” and.. he was gone. No big sales pitch.. no big calculator analysis.. simple and sweet.
Brennan did explain the benefits of the reduced energy usage and the potential for savings with our electric bill. Honestly.. I was not even thinking about that.. I was only envisioning more LIGHT.
Shortly after, I called Brennan and he popped two Solatubes in our roof. One was tricky because of the angle but he did a superb job. Brennan suggested installing a low wattage light in that Solatube so we could supplement the light in that particular location. The other was placed in the hallway. For days after the installation, I would hit the light switch thinking the light was on. It was not the light bulb that was ON but the light that was hitting the entire hallway from the Solatube.
Within the next few years.. we placed three more Solatubes in our home. One was placed in the kitchen. One was placed in our bathroom and complemented with an installation of a fan and light fixture. And the third was placed in the gaping hole left by the removal of an inefficient gas stove chimney. My plants love that one.... they get a lot of diffused light without the heat of the sun.
I, truly, can not say enough about the great product and great service provided by Brennan.
May you find the light as we did! Call Brennan, he will help you brighten your day!
