  • "Exceptional people and work!"

    Reviewed Jul 02, 2020

    Solar States makes a convincing argument for solar energy, and then provides turnkey solutions. They are a pleasure to work with. They stick with their deadlines, are prompt in responding to questions, and are very efficient in the installation and commissioning process. Very highly recommended.

  • "Everything was great"

    Reviewed Jun 30, 2020

    We are delighted with our working relationship with Solar States. Each phase of the project was supported and clearly explained by the team. The work was quick and respectful of our home. The work was beautifully done. We just loved working with a B-Corp because we know the company shares our values. The major problem with our project came from the electric utility!

  • "Clear Best Installer"

    Reviewed Jun 23, 2020

    Solar States was responsive and helpful throughout my installation process. Clearly the top quality installer in the Philadelphia area, and a socially responsible B-Corp to boot. Pricing could be better, but cutting corners on a 25+ year appliance is too important to skimp. I would have preferred a different inverter, but that's partially my fault for not checking before install. Highly recommended.

  • "Great Experience"

    Reviewed Mar 28, 2019

    We have had a great experience with Solar States. All of their staff were very helpful from the beginning of the process to the installation of the panels. They walked us through every step from the financing forward. Everyone was competent, professional and a pleasure to work with.

    It was particularly delightful to see capable, committed young people leading us into the future of clean energy consumption.

    I had a small space with challenges and there were two previous providers who had turned me down or given me quotes that made the project uneconomical before I found Solar States

    Solar States were responsive, cutomer friendly baby sat me through the process and delivered a product on time and on budget.

    Reviewed Nov 13, 2017

    I'm a big fan of Solar States. Their cost was as good or better than other quotes I received from reputable companies locally. Their service and support was far above. Great team of installers worked four days in some incredibly hot weather. The electrical team didn't quite until our AC was back on even though it was getting close to 8PM and they were into their 12th hour on the job. They did a really nice job on the conduit matching the color of the house and doing some tricky turns to have the least aesthetic impact. Oh yeah and the system has been performing very well. I can't recommend Solar States more highly.

    Solar States did an outstanding job installing a top rate system at a great price. They worked hard to get all of the necessary approvals and permits as quickly as possible. The system has been running well for 2+ months and should result in our home being run on 100% renewable energy for 25+ years.

  • "Easy to work with!"

    Reviewed Jul 27, 2017

    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. This was not a panels on the roof type deal. The project was extremely unique and from the ground up. They never balked at any ideas we had...down to the lighting/switch placement. I had three companies on the property and they were the only ones I didn't feel were trying to oversell a system we didn't need for thousands of extra dollars. The job was custom, the price was right. They were able to match an existing pergola on the property with the style of our project. It came out exactly how I had envisioned. Done to budget in the original time-frame promised. Highly recommended. Thank you Solar-States!

  • "Great team"

    Reviewed Feb 28, 2017

    Zack Logan, Brent, Gregory Mollusky, and a number of others were very helpful from start to completion. Solar States was not pushy like other solar panel vendors and patiently explained the anticipated cost savings with the conditions and caveats associated with the solar production predictions. Although my project ran into a few hiccups along the way, the team at Solar States continued to push forward. They are all great people and were a true pleasure to work with.

    "Great staff and product"

    Reviewed Feb 28, 2017

    I am thrilled to have my solar array up and running. Although the process took longer than I had hoped (mainly because of a slow response from PECO, our energy company) working with Solar States was a very positive experience. I interacted with quite a few of their staff in sales, admin, and tech. All of them were very responsive and caring and worked very hard to get through some of the issues that arose. There was minimum disruption when they installed the panels. Although there was an interim period when nothing seemed to be happening, I did find out that that was because of communication with PECO and the slightly irregular configuration of my system. But in the end, it all worked out and I love being able to view my energy production on their virtual monitoring system. I feel good that I am doing my small part for the planet.

    Reviewed Dec 23, 2015

    From the beginning of them taking roof measurements and providing an estimate of what the system would cost I was impressed with how thorough they were. Our system started up in March of 2015 and we just got an electrical bill to pay in December. I am very pleased with the workmanship and would highly recommend Solar States.

  • "Great service for Havertown, PA"

    Reviewed Dec 22, 2015

    Micah and his team were polite, professional, and hard-working. The installation was done efficiently and cleanly, and the finished product - a 27-panel solar array on the roof of my suburban Philadelphia home - looks great. I was kept informed about when they would do the work, so I always knew what to expect. I especially liked that Solar States employs young people from the Philadelphia area; I think they have some sort of local vocational training program.

    Reviewed Dec 19, 2015

    This isn't a huge company and we found that to be a big plus. There was personal attention and a level of detail the other companies didn't bring. Instead of relying on Google map images of ou roof, Solar States came out and measured the roof and observed where our trees blocked the sun. We had a panel die and they were monitoring and noticed right away. The panel was quickly replaced.

    We highly recommend them.

    I called Solar States because a friend had just used them for his installation, and he had been quite happy with them. Though I reached out to several installers, I ended up with them because they seemed to provide the biggest bang for the buck. They don't promote various financing options like some other companies do, but those weren't important to me. And I'm sure that they can get you contacts if that's important to you. With money so cheap these days, it's not hard to keep your out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum.
    Mostly, though, these folks will give you terrific up to date products and professional installation for a fair price.
    Cutting edge all the way.

    "Accurate, honest and transparent proposal, excellent installation"

    Reviewed Oct 06, 2015

    The people who did our initial visit were friendly , knowledgeable, and answered all our many questions, before and after providing us with a proposal. 3 revisions later, all our concerns were addressed, and we were ready to close the deal.
    Installation was on time, and completed as expected. The PowerCorps workers were professional, and skilled, under Micah's able supervision. Micah also installed a charging station for our Nissan Leaf.
    According to the electrical instpector, everything was hooked up just right.
    6 months since installation, there are no roof leaks, and the system's monthly production is very close, if not a little better than, the estimates in the proposal. Any qestions I've e-mailed to the staff have been answered promplty and thoughtfully.
    The panels also kept our garage cooler through a hot summer.
    We have recommended Solar States to a number of coworkers and friends.

    "Professional, honest and reliable"

    Reviewed Aug 14, 2015

    I live in Pennsylvania and selected Solar States to install a large (almost 10 kW) system on my residence. It was a complicated project because I have two separate roof areas and a lot of surface area that required special wiring. The Solar States team is professional, honest and reliable. They completed the job very quickly, with minimal disruption to our daily life inside the house (we have two young children). Our system is working well and while we have had a couple minor issues, Solar States was very responsive to resolve the issues including replacing two panels that were producing below expected output. I would highly recommend them!

Leading the Northeast in full-cycle Solar PV Installations and Education.

Less than a handful of Solar Solutions providers can say they have 11 years of best practice ethical Solar Solutions. Solar is a complex construction project.

We don't participate in Residential Lease or PPA projects. We strongly believe that homeowners should take advantage of the attractive incentives and benefits and not a third party finance lease companies. We are happy to sacrifice some volume to focus on higher-quality solar ownership solutions for our customers.

At Solar States, we understand that the premium hardware makes a difference to the long term integrity and performance of each project. The industry trend is to focus on the cost and offer the lowest price possible. This is particularly true on platforms like Enerysage where sometimes the price can be the initial focus on trying to differentiate bids.

It's easy for any solar solutions provider to bring the price down, you simply have to change the hardware for a cheaper product and take some labor-saving measures at the installation. Once the homeowner understands the real price difference and the significant compromises on Warranties, Performance, and installation execution. The small premium for the best modules on the market is easily justified and quickly recovered with the Federal and State Incentives.

Solar States has experience in both Large Commercial Complex installations as well as residential projects. On residential, projects we are experienced with many project types that most installers won't even consider. In addition to the typical pitched roofs. Solar States is equally at ease with flat roofs and ground mount arrays. We only use our own installation crews

Solar States has also educated thousands of students through hands-on education workshops via YouthBuild and the Philadelphia Solar Schools Initiative (PSSI). We hold and maintain all the industry-leading certification (NABCEP & PICS) and fully insured.

We have just been selected by the Solarize Philadelphia Program to be one of the elite providers. We went through a thorough selection process to be deemed worthy to provide our services to the Philadelphia Solarize Program.
