Best customer service

Zac and crew walked us through system Planning and installation as well as continuing operations after install. As it was our 2nd home to install solar and found many things have changed and updates since 2009 Ecosmart was great to work with.

incredibly helpful on a complex installation!

I am very happy to reccomend EcoSmart for a solar project. I have a historic home with multiple buildings and couldnt have exposed conduit. There were helpful in the deisgn, accomodating with the extra effort to hide the conduit and metering as much as possible, and once they started they came evey day until it was finished. They also were cost competitve or cheaper than the bigger name companies. It was a great expereince. Project was completed February 2024

I have been dealing with Thomas for my solar needs and so far my experience has been amazing. No matter the question Thomas has an answer and has made the process stress-free. Highly recommended!

Best Solar Company in Connecticut (and beyond!)

I can't say enough about how incredibly happy I am that I put my solar project in the incredibly capable hands of EcoSmart Home Services. From meeting their first Rep to the last minute details by the installers and electrician, every aspect of the experience was well-informed, well-executed, and an absolute pleasure for me. As someone who doesn't relinquish control easily, EcoSmart kept me in the loop, met my (difficult) timeline and goals, and dotted every "i" and crossed every "t." To this day (3 years plus later) they return every email and every phone call without hesitation and always have a cheerful, helpful disposition and answers to my questions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! You will not be disappointed! Oh, it doesn't hurt that I have zero electric bill!!! (;

Ecosmart really looked after us

We got 5 quotes (plus a couple more off energysage) and went with Ecosmart because (1) they recommended excellent equipment; (2) were realistic in their quote; (3) were flexible in helping us get exactly what we wanted, switching up the panels we wanted, installing on both our garage and main house roof at no extra cost; (4) being really honest about the options throughout the process. They weren't the cheapest quote, but as it turned out, they were worth every penny. Our house is quite shaded, so the flexibility was key. It also led to a lot of variation in quotes. Ecosmart estimates of how many panels we'd need for all our electricity was at the high end. However, our panels were producing a good 10 - 15% less than estimated over the first year or so. Ecosmart installed extra panels (at no cost to us) to get us up to the production estimates they had made. Many companies talk a good game, but Ecosmart really followed through with great customer service. I'd definitely recommend them.

Trust and Honest

These two words are essential when working with a company that provides home services. In our case they took the time and made the effort to come to our house, inspect our roof and solar potential, provide a fair and reasonable quote and stood by their work. Solar can be a confusing major project with panel installation and electrical maintenance needed to make it worthwhile, but Zachary, Jason, and all their employees really do a great job! I would recommend that you contact Zachary and get a quote. He's very easy to work with and really does apply the Trust & Honesty principle! Good Luck!
