Solar States

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.

Exceptional people and work!

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

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

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

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.

Great solar installation company

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.
