We didn't end up hiring New England Clean Energy because their quote (for 35 LG370w panels with microinverters) came in over $22,000 higher than the other two solar companies we contacted. While the company founder was friendly and knowledgeable during our phone consult, his quote was a shock to us. While New England Clean Energy may be good at what they do, there are other companies (like SunBug Solar, whom we hired for our last solar job back in 2012--and LOVED!) who do great work and are more affordable. We recommend getting a few other quotes before you choose to hire New England Clean Energy.
As an aside, we also found the company founder to be a bit dismissive of other companies. When we told him we were going with another company whose quote was $20,000 less, he said the other company must be a new small or one-man shop. (Incidentally, the company we chose has been in business for 29 years and comes highly recommended.) Ultimately, to have hired New England Clean Energy would have cost over $4.16 per watt for the system, as opposed to the $2.51 we will now be paying.
I purchased a 7.9 kw system from them. I wanted to go with an experienced local company that was financially solid. The install went smoothly. However, I was unhappy with the appearance of the conduit from the panels to the meter since it was a front roof installation. Jonathan and his crew listened to my concerns and rerouted the conduit to my satisfaction. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to go solar.
