Rick was super! Such a breath of fresh air from dealing with other people in this industry His assessment and planning was exceptional. Gave us multiple options and price points. His workmanship was of very high quailty. My original upgrade of a Victron 2000 Multiplus invertor/chargeer was not wire sized properly in Nov 2022 when in the States. Rick understood my problem and we had a plan put together in no time. His knowledge, hourly rate/efficiency and material costs are the best I have seen. You will be making a big mistake by not making Silver Lining Solar your first stop when it comes to this type of service. Well worth the drive to beautiful Summerland BC. Thanks so much for the great service Rick!

Rick did an excellent job of installing solar panels, a charge controller, a lithium battery and an inverter in our travel trailer. The finished product works flawlessly — it almost seems like magic after suffering through years of lead-acid batteries. He explained the process and products thoroughly before we started and even provided helpful, easy-to-read articles on each element of the system. I highly recommend visiting Silver Lining Solar if you're ready to make the switch to solar and/or lithium or even if you just have questions.

Rick went above and beyond all expectations in the quality of his work. The installation went well and suited our needs for AC power as we needed it.

Great work! Easy to deal with and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend over any big commercial shop for sure. I’m from out of town and was sorta stranded and Rick helped me right out! Legend!

New to RV’ing and purchased a 1994 unit that had been updated to include solar. I decided to upgrade the system as we planned to do lots of off grid camping. I soon learned I would need an expert for advice. Very glad I found Silver Lining Solar. Rick took a look and provided a plan that would provide a solid foundation that I can build on for future upgrades. He also took the time to cleanup some shoddy wiring and simplified the layout. I learned much about solar systems through the process but the most important lesson is to rely on an expert like Rick which avoided me from making costly errors on the upgrade to the system. Rick clearly enjoys enlightening his customers on solar power and takes great pride in his work. Highly recommend Silver Lining Solar and looking forward to adding a couple of more components later this year that will provide even more capability to our off grid travels.

We have been searching for months to upgrade our Cougar Fifth Wheel solar package that would allow us to boondock. It was difficult to find someone with enough practical knowledge, experience and skills to be able to help until we had a referral to Rick Lambert. (Silver Lining Solar). Silver Lining Solar in Summerland BC was highly recommended and we can see why. Rick is knowledgable, practical and thorough in designing a system to suit. We left the RV with Rick and soon we had a fully functional system doing exactly what we requested. The workmanship, demonstration and manuals will allow us many years of boondocking for years to come. John & Lorna, Kelowna, BC.

Rick was great! He was really helpful and had lots of knowledge on the electrical and solar! We had a unique trailer situation and he took the time to work with us and talk through what we wanted to make sure it was going to be perfect. We were able to get our trailer done asap and should be on our trip in a few days. We couldn’t have done it without him. Thanks Rick!

It's hard to express how pleased I am with the new solar system Rick installed on my motor home. Rick is beyond knowledgeable on the process required to make your motor home powered by solar in the most efficient and safe way. It is my belief that you would be hard pressed to find Anyone who would or could do a better job. Rick gives 110%! If you are looking for a solar package for your rig do yourself a favor and look no further, call Rick Lambert at Silver Lining Solar, you will not regret it!

Rick is very knowledgeable when it comes to solar power. Rick also helped me make the right choices when deciding what was best for our needs. I found it very easy to talk with Rick and he never tried to up sell me on equipment that was not needed. The installation of our solar equipment was done to a very high standard. When I had questions he always made time to answer them. Very professional. I would highly recommend dealing with Silver Lining Solar. Old school service new technology knowledge. Thanks Rick for the great experience.

Called all around the Okanagan looking for info on solar system to install in my RV trailer. Rick was the only person the we talked too that had extensive knowledge on what type of solar system we needed to be able to camp off grid. My wife & i took the trailer to Ricks place in Summerland and he professionally installed the solar system into the RV in one afternoon. Very happy with his work & appreciated his expertise on what solar system that we needed for our trailer.

Subject: Fwd: Your recent experience with Silver Lining Solar  My experience with silver lining solar began by way of a West Kelowna supplier of solar products recommending Rick Lambert, owner/operator of SilverLiningSolar. As things turned out I could not be any happier with that recommendation. On my contacting Rick I explained that I was interested in a solar power system as my wife and I on a number of occasions while boondocking had run out of battery power and that the use of generator power was often times restrictive and inconvenient. Rick attended our coach and reviewed the electrical system and impressed me with his understanding and keen interest in both the system we had and what the addition of a solar system would add. The only disturbing matter was his pointing out that we really didn’t need solar power given the system we had. Hmmm, this guy seemed to be talking me out of his installing a solar system. It didn’t take me long to realize that his advice reflected his opinion, experience and honesty. My wife and I discussed our needs and expectations vs. the ballpark cost Rick suggested and decided for our peace of mind , convenience and assurance of ongoing battery power we would ask Rick to install the system. In the installation Rick’s thoughtful location and routing of the units and wiring again reflect his knowledge and experience. Although because of Covid, heat and storms our use of the coach has been limited we remain happy with our choice of SilverLiningSolar and Rick Lambert. One footnote that supports our choices is that Rick pointed out that if convenient I might choose, over the winter, to leave the batteries connected in the coach with the solar system turned on. On January 17/22, just prior to writing this review, I attended the coach only to find the house and engine batteries fully charged. Given the temperature has been down to as much as -30 C and the solar panels mostly covered in snow for the past month I was pleasantly surprised. Thank you Rick for your advice, attitude, workmanship .…..and good nature. Brian & Eva

Rick, was such a pleasure to work with. Not only was he knowledgeable in all aspects of my set up he went above and beyond of what was asked of him to get me on my way. Highly recommend any opportunity to work and learn from him.

Rick is very knowledgeable & go out of his way if he doesn't have the answer! My Victron Inverter was not working properly and he dug deep to figure out that it was an issue with the inverter itself! Victron components and Battleborn battery knowledgeable people are not easy to come by in Canada! Great experience!

Thanks Rick for all your help in teaching us about our solar and electrical system in our new Skoolie. You were very knowledgeable and a great resource we will be sure to be in touch with whenever we need further assistance.

From the very beginning Rick was incredibly helpful in arranging me a great deal on a solar setup. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and out way more effort into finding me the right package than any other RV solar provider I talked to. 100% would recommend!
