SunPower technology is unrivaled, possessing hundreds of patents that allow for greater durability and performance, less panels needed in the same amount of space, an expected useful life of 40 years, and the best warranty available in the industry. When you choose SunPower, you are choosing a fully integrated system with all components produced by the same manufacturer, and under the same warranty. No other system can say this.

    I've had SunPower for only a short period now, but happy to have made the move. Speaking with Danny and researching / comparing to other vendors made it a simple choice that SunPower was the go to. The 25 year warranty is amazing. I've never heard of such a long term warranty before. Everyone from sales to install screw were great.
    Go with SunPower. You won't regret it!

    Tate was great in walking us through everything solar. The who, what, why, and when were all answered upfront and executed accordingly. Went with SunPower panels specifically because we felt they are superior to other brands and happy with their production so far into the season. Overall would recommend to anyone considering solar, it's definitely worth it.

    NY State Solar Farm are a solid locally owned company with a dedicated, knowledgeable staff. The sales staff took the time to explain what was needed and the options. They stuck with me, and I am pretty demanding, through both the design phase, permitting, the build and final Con Ed approval. I had not realized how many things you needed to consider, but both Rhona on the sales team and the owner Anthony and his wife made it all make sense. The best thing that they did was come out with their drone and actually test what my solar system could do in real world conditions before I paid dollar one. This is the NYS Solar Farm difference that you won’t get from companies that look at a google satellite map of your roof. Also, after learning about the panel manufacturers I would only go with SunPower, especially since their products are made here in NA and backed by a company that has been in business for 4 decades. The vast that they make panels for NASA does not hurt either. The best thing that happened was to see our first watts of solar energy power our home! All in all, it was a good experience. I will update this review after we see how the system performs in the next year.

    A bit of an awkward review as we ended up going with another installer but out of all the solar contractors out there, the choice was difficult, and NYS Solar Farm was one of the two that we narrowed it down to (from almost 10 we engaged with). At the end, it went down to the technology but it was very very close and we are certain we would have been happy with either choice. A special shout out to Anthony who, even as the owner of the company, came onsite to help with the design and answer all of our questions. Rhona was behind the scenes helping plan out our design and also patiently answered all of our questions and guided us through the process. For anyone looking for panels with a microinverter technology, you cannot go wrong with NYS Solar Farm.

    Superior Service! A wonderful company! Everyone I spoke with, Gabby and Kathy, about my project was kind and attentive. I have a Sunpower System installed 7 years ago by another company (now out of business). I had wind and water damage to my roof and had to have the panels removed then reinstalled after my roof was replaced. The local company I found (AEC Solar in Albany) to remove my array was difficult and put me off until I had a serious interior leak (other side of the roof). Jonathan just didn't seem to care; he is "booked until October". Then I found NYS Solar Farm, Inc. I wish I had found them for the first half of the job. within a week, they squeezed me in and got my panels up and running. The crew, Rich, Eric and Klever, was professional and efficient. They worked diligently on my roof in the blazing hot sunshine. Rich reviewed my equipment and explained future needs and my options. And the cost for the job by NYSSF was $1,625 LESS than what AEC Solar was going to charge me. I will be using NYSSF for all my future solar needs. I absolutely recommend this company whether you need service to an existing array or are going solar for the first time. They are top notch for sure.

    Reviewed Jul 24, 2020

    I have been trying to figure out the best way to have backup power for my home in the event of a power outage. It basically came down to either a conventional generator or solar panels + battery backup. Even though solar is expensive, it seemed appealing as a battery backup would be quiet and very convenient in not having to refill a propane tank during each outage...

    So I came to energysage to get some feelers for solar installations, and received a few quotes. From some of the other vendors, it immediately became apparent that there is no shortage of people out there looking to make a quick buck on false promises. I did not have that experience with NYSSF, though. Sheldon was very honest with me about what the realistic expectations should be for my home, based on shading analysis from satellite images and an on-site assessment with more detailed shading measurements. A different vendor claimed my roof had "good surfaces" and I'd "save like $100,000." Sheldon was very straightforward and basically said, "there's not enough light here to meet all of your needs, but let's see what we can figure out." We had a lot of back and forth discussion about whether to do a roof mount or some kind of canopy in a better-lit portion of the property, and what the cost/benefit would be. In the end, their analysis showed there was so much shading on my property that solar would be a waste of money for my particular house. He didn't try to sell it up or make me commit to something that would 1.) waste my money and 2.) hurt their reputation in the long run by selling me something that under-delivers.

    So, even though I ultimately will not install solar panels on my home, I highly recommend NYSSF to anyone looking for an honest solar provider. They understand solar very well and will not make you buy something you don't need. They also use the highest quality panels (SunPower) and so when they do sell you something to put on your roof, they're not selling garbage. These people are top notch.

  • "Everything worked out great!"

    Reviewed May 18, 2020

    I chose NY State Solar Farm after extensive research on this and many other sites. I put my request for a quote out there and they were one of 4 or 5 that responded quickly and with a detailed quote. I compared them to other companies in detail and they seemed to have the experience and knowledge, plus their price was reasonable and production estimate did not seem overly inflated. Also, after researching all the panels that were available in general, plus comparing the specific panels that each quote offered, I realized that SunPower had the best panels in the business for a variety of reasons. They have the highest producing panels, plus the proprietary microinverters convert the DC to AC at the panel rather than at a central inverter which reduces power loss and is just more efficient. I spent a lot of time going over the specific panel options with them and really picked their brains about price to performance ratio. In the end I chose more expensive higher producing panels (more than I wanted to spend, but a better investment), but it was me pushing them, rather than them trying to upsell. They were very honest and really helped me crunch the numbers. Also, unlike Tesla and another company, their production estimate and design was much more reasonable and conservative, but based on a more thorough examination of my site. So far in April and May I have produced double my estimated daily average, and it's been fairly cloudy. At this rate I will have produced a year's worth of electricity by the end of the summer, so anything through fall and winter will just be extra $ for me to bank!

    They were easy to work with, answered my complex questions and didn't pressure me at all. Sometimes it took awhile to get back to me with some of the more complicated questions, and some of the paperwork was confusing and needed more clarification, but they walked me through it all, including the tax breaks and dealing with the power company.

    The design went through a few changes as I kept asking to fit more panels, but they really worked on it. Installation took a bit longer than I had hoped, but that was mainly due to the weather. Installation was quick and not disruptive at all.

    I don't really have anyone else to compare to in terms of actual installation, but I can say that I did get a detailed quote from Tesla, and they definitely didn't have their act together in many ways. Plus they kept calling me. I know their batteries are currently the best, but you can get them from NYSSF as well and I don't think there is much difference in price if at all. Definitely don't use Tesla to install - they just hire independent contractors, but NYSSF have their own staff and they have lots of experience.

    Overall these guys have their act together and I can highly recommend them. I only wrote the review because I rely on reviews myself quite a bit and usually only write negative ones to warn people, so I thought it would be a good idea to write a positive one for once. Also because EnergySage was such a good educational resource for helping me understand all the complexities of going solar as well as getting online quotes without having salespeople harassing me. So do your own research and compare, but I can tell you as someone who spent months looking it to this from many different sources and sites you won't go wrong with these guys!

I am planning to put solar so that it can offset my monthly electricity bill and get the advantage of evening out the amount I spend asap. With sunpower I was not achieving this sooner and is like spending more money for no reason. As of now there is LG Neon R panel 370W which is as good or better than sunpower residential panels with far less money and you can even out in 6 to 7 years. After considering sunpower and LG I decided to go with LG as that was giving me ROI and with Sunpower there was no ROI as per my calculation and understanding.

    My wife and I had thought about going solar for several years. Then one day we were approached by a sales person at a local home improvement store. That got the ball rolling with a large national solar company. We had several phone meetings with their rep (who was in California). The rep mentioned that NYSSF was one of the local installers they used for our location in NY. We decided it would be worthwhile to contact NYSSF directly. You know-get a second opinion. NYSSF came to our home, took measurements and explained the differences in panel brands. The SunPower panels they offered not only looked better, but out performed the cheaper panels the national company was pushing. Plus the warranty was superior. Not all panels are the same! As a former aeronautical engineer, I understood and concurred with this. We ended up buying less panels than the national company proposed, and NYSSF took care of everything including securing building permits & inspections, and obtaining state/federal incentives and alow interest loan. They made going solar easy! The installation crew had the job done in 2 days, and were friendly and professional.
    That was over 3 years ago. Our electric bill went to ZERO (it was replaced by a energy loan payment of the same amount which will be paid off soon). In the end we are very glad we made the move to go solar; both for saving money and being a smart ecological choice. We highly recommend NYSSF.

    I wanted to take a moment to write to you and the crew at New York State Solar Farm. I believe it's been officially one year since we were able to flip the "on" button on our solar system. We as homeowners couldn't be happier with making the decision to go with solar and to have your fine company walk us through the journey of harvesting energy from the sun.

    If you recall, we had just bought our first home when you came to see us. We were "a bit overwhelmed" with everything and we first and foremost want to thank you for having the patience and giving us time to think about everything. That meant a lot to us considering every other salesperson and contractor we had in that week pushed us to move as fast as possible and only created more chaos in our new homeowner brains.

    When we finally decided to move ahead, you and the Team at New York State Solar Farm were the absolute best in answering all our questions, answering phone calls, and guiding us through the process. Your company was the first quote that I've ever seen to actually hit the financial numbers dead on in both cost and rebates and tax incentives. Through the tax refund and savings on the electric bill, we were able to pay off the loan on the system within 10 months. I know that's not 100% realistic for everyone but we made the effort to take those savings and get the loan paid off. I looked back at the estimated solar output for our first year and I think had the autumn not been so rainy and gray in September and October, those numbers would have been dead on too. The install crew worked in a snow shower and the hook up and turn on process was very cool, it was a gray day then too and we were still generating a small bit of power.

    Over the course of the year people have asked us about our experience in being "solar people". We fully talk about what our process was, I proudly pull up the Sunpower app to show them how we can monitor what the house is generating and I love to talk the numbers with them, especially since we are an all electric house. Most important though, we share with them how this was a want for us. We wanted to be a part of cleaner energy and take charge of how the power we use is produced. That was something that you saw was key for us in our decision to go solar.

    All-in-all, we are ecstatic with being a part of the Solar community and our first year in has been a joy. Now that we're past the shortest day of the year again, we look forward to that extra minute of sunlight running through our system. We cannot thank you enough and whenever we get asked about solar, we heap on the praise about you and New York State Solar Farm.

I'm someone who likes to do a lot of research and comparison before making a decision; they were by far the best overall package out there. NYSSF installs high-quality panels and their great customer service kept me informed along every step of the way. I highly recommend them.

    From the moment I met Dave Rush our salesperson I felt good about the experience we were embarking on. He let us know how it would go from the installation to finished system. We had absolutely no issues and the system has performed as expected the past year.

    2018 has been a great year for solar - in spite of all of the rain! We were told that our solar should handle about 95% of our energy needs and with 10 days left in the year it will be closer to 100% - right now we are at 102%, but November and December have been rainier months. We have only had to clear the panels of snow twice in the last 2 years - and usually just need to clear a small portion of it and the rest sheds pretty quickly. The only complaint I had was that the truck delivering the parts was parked in the lawn and made some good sized ruts; we were told they would be fixed and they weren't. Besides that everything is working great!

  • "solar panels"

    Reviewed Dec 18, 2018

    I have 2 sets of solar panels the first set I had installed about 4 years ago they have an inverter that's on the outside of the house , I had several issues with them . I have added a second set about 2 years ago I was some what reluctant to have them install the second set , but I am pleased with the second set it does not have an inverter separate from the panel , it is built right in the panel and have not had any issues with these. In case you don't know what an inverter is it changes what the panel produces which is DC to what is used in the house AC .

    I originally wanted the solar shingle, aesthetics was very important to my wife & I. After seeing what the panel design actually looks like I prefer it much more than the shingle. we wanted a good product with warranty that would transfer to the new buyer later on. Thats what we got with sunpower. The crew who installed our system did the job in one day which i was not expecting getting us completed before the end of the year.

    The installation of the system was nice and quick and I even had them upgrade my service to my house. My system is 6.21kw and on a sunny day on these short days is producing 8.4kw can't wait to see how much it will do in the spring- summer.

    Our system was installed in our side yard in Dec 2016. We went with the panels that have the mini inverter attached, so there is only a knife switch in the garage. In 2017 we only paid Central Hudson the $24 monthly access fee to the grid, and produced more electricity than the house used. It was amazing to see the statement saying we didn't purchase any electricity for the year. We received $24.61 from Central Hudson for the "excess" electricity we generated. Monitoring the system from our computer, we believe our 2018 "generating" check will be higher than last year. Installation only took a few days, and everything went smoothly. ALL the technicians were great. All we had to do was throw the switch after all the inspections were done. Most snow slides right off, so there is no maintenance. We are very happy with the system and NYSSF. We really should have done it sooner.

    First, some background: we initially signed up for Tesla/Solarcity about a week after we closed on our first house. Credit and financing was fine but then time went on... and on... and we waited and waited... eventually a year later, we had 7 hard credit inquiries from the Tesla system that never got installed, PLUS a very angry Greek contractor they had hired who wanted to upgrade our service to 200Amp (out of pocket) for no real reason.

    Fast Forward: I told Tesla to go away and did some research through EnergySage. After comparing the products, warranties, and power generation estimates, I went with SunPower through NYSSF. They promised 101% of my energy would be solar powered during the summer time, and they'd even shore up my attic to support the weight of the new panels. Sweet.

    I have not been more surprised by the night-and-day difference between the two competing companies. NYSSF were very helpful, knew the product they were selling, and understood I was ready to go. Rhona and I never even met face-to-face, only spoke by phone but she understood where I was coming from.

    TL;DR With Tesla, a year elapsed with no panels on my roof. In the meantime, they also send a Model 3 car into space for no reason other than to piss off their investors.

    With NYSSF, within a month, we had financing, permits, panels and everything ready. Install took 2 days (due to weather) and has really made a dent in our electric usage since. I've also since purchased a plug-in hybrid car to make use of the excess energy we sell back to ConEd. I mean, why not?

    Kudos to New York State Solar Farm on the work performed on my home. There was no 'hard sell', and the installation and set-up crews were professional and courteous. I am now realizing the exact savings on power usage that they estimated I would receive. The only problem we encountered from beginning to end of the process was confirming a start date for the project.
