So far, I recommend him highly. I will keep the forum posted as the installation goes forward and alert you to any issues. My guess is that it will go smoothly, though.
This is an industry that I feel needs more people like that.
BTW: Nice choice on the Enphase microinverters. The cabling and inverters might cost a bit more but at least for me designing the system was so much easier, no concerns about the shading, no big inverters in the garage/side of the house, 25 year warranty to match the panel warranty, for installation was a lot simpler and as the owner of the system there is nothing like being able to monitor the system at the panel level.
They've got a new enlighten site coming soon that's supposed to be even better than this: http://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com/publ ... /2Kkg31401

The one thing I want them to add is a module for the Envoy (The computer that you connect to your network which talks to the inverters and relays teh information to the internet) that will do power consumption monitoring.
