15 Years of Solar

Solar, batteries, & EV chargers in PA, NJ, MD, and DE

On a dual-mission since 2008.

We’re a B-Corp founded with a dual-mission to install solar and educate the next generation of installers. It’s been a fun ride: Jim Gardner said our name, our website crashed during a free March Madness ad, an Eagles legend joined our team for an installation on his own home, we won Best for the World: Community for our commitment to the region, and we’ve designed and installed (we do everything in-house) over 1k solar projects of every kind  – and that’s not the half of it! THANK YOU for an unforgettable 15. Many more to come.

Lately at Solar States:

U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm visited our project at Yards Brewery!

The City of Philadelphia awarded us a grant to train justice-involved Philadelphians!

Best for the World 2021: Community!

Solar States was awarded the B-Corp Best for the World 2021: Community award for our work in the community for our commitment to building shared and sustainable prosperity for all. Read more about how our business model benefits ALL in our communities.

Residential Solar

Did you know? The #1 misconception we hear is “I can’t go solar on my home because I have a flat rooftop.” Wrong – flat rooftops are GREAT for solar! We deal with them all the time in Philadelphia.

Commercial Solar

“Solar-States is the real deal, complete package. From idea to design to engineering to build to inspections to dealing with the utility, they handled it all.

How much will your solar project cost?

We can handle ANY solar project: flat rooftop, ground mount, canopies, battery backups, carports – ANY!

What determines the cost of a solar project?

The size of your rooftop and the amount of electricity you use. Once we survey your roof, we can provide suggestions and pricing on racking, panels, inverters, and possibly a battery system.

How will we provide a quote?

We’ll send you a PDF via e-mail and assign a solar designer to your project. The solar designer will handle all of the nuts and bolts of your project moving forward.

The Mission:

We’re a certified B-Corp with a triple-bottom-line of ‘People, Planet, Profit’. We treat our people fairly by providing full healthcare benefits, 401k plans, profit-sharing opportunities and the freedom to be themselves and build a brighter future regardless of background. We serve the planet by providing energy spenders an alternative to fossil fuels and monthly electric bills, and by making solar accessible to ALL in our region, including low-moderate income earners. Finally, we profit, by being efficient, minding the details, and growing through referrals and 5-star reputation. Our approach is made possible by our long-term partners seen below:
