    Good company to deal with. Very prompt and responding to inquiries. Only complaint is it took them a long time to install my system, but only because they were so busy with previous orders. Would highly recommend this company if you are considering going to solar

  • "They did a good job"

    Reviewed Jan 22, 2021

    Kasselman installed our rooftop solar panels in September 2019. The office staff were extremely helpful in guiding us through the process step-by-step. They were very accessible by phone and email.The project was completed within a reasonable timeframe. There were some minor scheduling delays but they really didn’t matter in the end. In the 16 months since installation we have had zero problems with the system.

    My only concern is that in the winter the snow and ice slides off the panels all at once and I’m really glad it’s on the roof facing the backyard and not over a door that we use regularly. None of the companies we received bids from ever mentioned this is an issue. The industry should address this problem and offer snow guards as an option for the project. But overall we were very pleased with Kasselman.

    The positive, Customer Service was great, always quick responses. Install, when it happened, was quick.

    The negative, lack of communication. Suggestion for Kasselman, create a page for customer to visit to see project status and updates. Was not expecting 3 months to complete project and still unclear whether this will qualify for the 2020 tax credits. Here's hoping! All for a very expensive, and thus far, poorly working east facing solar system.

    Real world results, underwhelming. If your roof is east facing, think again before installing solar. The 7.125 kWp system they installed for me will well below the 6,946 kWh/year (+ or - 10%) quoted in my Solar Proposal. The last 30 days saw 45 kWh produced...or on a cloudy day like today 885 wH...not even enough to cover running a single small space heater for the day. Granted the summer months should see better results but at this rate 45 kWh x 12 months = 540 kWh...well shy of the 6,946 kWh/year (+ or = 10%) pitched.

    Lastly. If using their financing connections there may be additional charges for NSEA and VSECU accounts/memberships as well as costs to the utility company for power generated prior to net meter install. If I had it to do again, I would have stayed with DIY.

    I did not ultimately pick Kasselmann, but they gave me a good offer. I just happened to have started looking first outside of EnerguSage and the original company made sure their offer stayed better than what I got elsewhere. James likely would have matched up with that offer. Anyway James knew my situation and still gave a lot of helpful advice, I appreciated that. He came across as a reputable person.

    I may add to my system down the road to replace my oil heating system and I will look again at Kasselmann, because of James.

    Kasselman Solar installed our panels in November 2014. Process was seamless. Installation techs and electricians were 100% professional and job was completed quickly. Recently had some issues with non-reporting microinverters. Contacted Kasselman and replacements were installed expeditiously and under warranty, no cost to us. Our system was monitored by Kasselman and replacement to an additional microinverter was made before I realized there was an issue. Kasselman continues to provide excellent customer service even to us "oldtimers".

We were told by other people that Kasselman did a great job and it was true. From the very beginning, the company handled everything for us. They were always gracious about our questions. The crews that arrived worked tirelessly until the job was completed. I just can't say enough about how happy and satisfied we are! Should you go with Kasselman? A resounding YES.

Installers finished everything in one day. They even found an electrician to work with them when the Syracuse permitting process caused difficulties. Highly recommend!!

    Extremely pleased with the pre installation work, the installation crews ( 3 panel installers and 3 electricians)- 25 panels up and wired in little more than a day. These two crews worked well together- Professionally done. The project mgr kept us informed of all the steps. Only down side was the length of time it took to get it complete- almost 2 1/2 months, lots of steps from the first survey, panel installation, electrical inspection & new meter change out. Part of the delay was due to us having to cut trees down to meet the NYSERDA requirement of 80 % for full rebate, Would recommend Kasselman. As to the value question below, too soon to tell, will have to watch the performance over the next few months. but overall glad we did this. One other comment- never rec'd any quotes from the Energy Sage installers

    "Where the Rubber Hits the Road"

    Reviewed Sep 22, 2018

    How many of us decide on something based on a good salesperson, clever marketing or another emotional pull? I know I do.

    Yet when choosing a contractor, be it solar or any service, we all know that it's the folks doing the work who determine the project's success. You could say I'm something of an expert on the subject as I ran crews for nearly 15 years.

    Kasselman Solar certainly has great sales people and strong marketing, yet for me the rubber hit the road when the install crew came to my house. They are simply phenomenal. It's not just being nice to a customer (though I've seen the opposite too many times to count); it has to be a complete package. The crews need to care for the customer AND care about the work they are doing AND care how they work together. It's a team game and they play very well. I know because having lived it I feel I can spot the little details.

    Solar is a big decision and virtually everyone makes it before they see what I saw and wanted to share here. You should know that Kasselman Solar is the complete package.

    Disclosure: I've known Kasselman Solar for years as a vendor, but this is my first time as a customer. Solar is something I've always 'meant to get to' and I finally did it. I'm glad.

His basement showed of years of experience, if my friend didn't point out all of the wiring and components I would never even seen the additional accessories. Extremely clean job. Fast forward to our home in Town of Jackson, slightly larger array. But perfect installation very clean and well done. Inspector showed up from the county and wanted to know who the company was, I told him Kasselman Solar, very impressed.... it's late February and have YET to pay for electricity, have enough credits still for two more months, love it!!

    We recently had Kasselman Solar install a 27 panel solar array a few months ago on our home in Beacon, NY. We highly reccomend them as they have an outstanding team of hard-working and honest people, were more than helpful in addressing our questions and concerns, and came in more affordable than other options we looked at (and we did a ton of research.) We were also relieved to know that they have an electric company as well as solar, which gave us peace of mind knowing they are diversified in industries and should be around for a long time. We're glad we chose Kasselman and have no regrets. 10/10.

  • "One stop shopping"

    Reviewed Oct 25, 2017

    I had inquired of about six firms regarding a PV installation at my home. Five responded to me, and four sort of phoned it in, not appearing to do much more than 'rule of thumb' and basic equipment lists in their responses. Kasselman did their homework, detailing everything they would do, and explaining why with facts and figures. They weren't the least expensive by far, but they were certainly the most thorough. Alan visited and did a preliminary site evaluation, and another engineer followed within days. They walked us through the various financing options, and even rolled a service upgrade into the contract at a significant savings. The installation crew were efficient and courteous, and the install was done neatly. Been using it for a little over 2 weeks now, and the monthly utility bill has dropped by easily 60%. We would not hesitate to recommend Kasselman. I'm employed in the contracting trades, and I see a lot of sloppy solar jobs. Not this one. A+. Remember what grandma used to say....you get what you pay for.

    "Kasselman Solar went above what I expect"

    Reviewed Jul 13, 2017

    After a few years of talking about solar with my husband, but not researching too far in, I decided to get quotes through Energy Sage. Kasselman Solar was on par with most of the 5 quotes (3 of 5 were all within $2K of each other), but they were the company that didn't push to set up a call "right away". From the start, Adam Jordan was thorough with his explanation of the system, rebate/savings incentives, and discussion of the whole process from chatting about what it took to Allison coming out and plugging in the final component. Cost was the big concern and in the long run, I will pay about half of the quoted system after rebates and tax returns. I really wanted the array on our barn so it was less visible. The metal roof was no concern. Kasselman frequently works with people across NY so my home (southeast of Syracuse) wasn't out of their customer radius at all. I am so happy we installed solar and even with this rainy spring are producing well above our monthly draw which will be a nice "bank" for the shorter, cloudier winter months. The team at Kasselman was very accommodating in my request to talk over email (vs phone) so I had an exact record of what was said to discuss with my husband, to work with my work schedule (and not needing me at the house during the whole install), and in following up with any concerns or questions after the system had been running.

    From the time I received the quote, to the time the install was complete (and even after) Kasselman has been a great company to work with. Adam and Allison were responsive to my many questions both before the installation and even now (3 months after the install was completed.) They handle everything from contacting the utility, getting permits from the town, ect... there really isn't much for the homeowner to do.

    If you are thinking about going solar in the Albany area, I highly recommend giving Kasselman a call and yes, solar is absolutely worth it. Our system was designed to produce 105% of our power needs and so far it has delivered; last month our electric supply was $0!!!
