About Our Free Solar Vocational Training Initiatives in Philadelphia


If you are considering solar, please read:

In our industry there is too much noise – bad or unhelpful information that misleads you.

Our position is that it’s best to see things honest from the start – no empty promises. The truth is: a solar installation is an involved process, and varies greatly by region. We cross our i’s and dot our t’s, and we see a lot of i’s and too many t’s: applications, permits, incentives, contracts, e-mails and e-mails. Done well, this is not a click-to-buy purchase. But, twelve years in, we’ve managed to make your experience seamless, or close. We get ahead of problems and keep you in the loop. Forever after you’re installed, we’re only a phone call away. Read our reviews for more about the customer experience.

If you don’t know which questions to ask but want to begin, just reach out with a ‘hello’ and our team will take care of you. We’ll tell you which questions you should be asking and be sure to provide suggestions grounded in your reality.

The #1 solar misconception in our region is that “I can’t go solar with my rooftop”. Hogwash, yes you can. Parts of Philadelphia and surrounding areas can be difficult to install in – narrow streets, flat or awkward rooftops – but this is our backyard and we’re very comfortable here. If you heard from another installer that you cannot go solar, or are of that opinion, please contact us – if there’s a way, we’ll find it.

Here are some facts to remember:

  • The price of a solar installation varies by rooftop, location, available incentives, energy production requirements and more. Be careful not to glean too much from a friend’s or the internet’s price – yours could be considerably less, or more.
  • The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) currently sites at 26%.
  • The Philadelphia Solar Rebate is no longer available – funds ran out.
  • Solarize Philadelphia is inactive.
  • We’ve had an uptick in battery requests of late. They are available. We are a Certified Powerwall installer.
  • We pay $500 for referrals. Referrals make our world go ’round.

What factors into the price of your solar project?

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