Our design approach: We use a systems approach to address your needs. We look at your energy usage holistically and help you reduce your electric bill and your carbon footprint by recommending sensible energy efficiency measures - think efficient lighting and appliances, and doing solar PV on the balance. In this way we help you save more money and reduce more carbon than with solar alone. You can heat your home and drive your car on solar PV, as well. We install Cold Climate Heat Pumps and Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. Combine those with Heat Pump (Hybrid) Water Heaters and now you can go completely fossil fuel free!
Our installation philosophy: We look to blend solar into the living environment in a way that enhances rather than detracts from the built and natural aesthetic.
Our technology: We use Tier 1 (highest quality) US or European made components that are efficient and durable. We are able to do this and still realize and pass on savings through efficient system integration and installation practices, so that you have a well-designed, pleasing and low cost system.
We are southern Vermont's foremost provider of renewable energy solutions. We specialize in the design and installation of grid-tied and off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for residential, commercial, industrial and non-profit customers. We also offer community solar (community distributed generation) installations in Vermont and New York. We are certified installers in Vermont and New York state.

The monitoring system installed by another contractor failed. Power Guru was very helpful in analyzing the problem and recommending solutions. After the original manufacturer refunded our money we bought a system from another company and Power Guru installed it for us quickly and efficiently.
Power Guru was exceptional! I was planning a completely remodeled energy efficient home with Efficiency Vermont and Power Guru was the only solar installer that took the time to sit down with me and listen to my plans, suggest options that I had not considered then plan a system that would fit my needs. Bhima's system because it was sized too my needs cost half of what the other bids came to.
As the project began I questioned Bhima about the equipment he was using thinking I may be getting cheaper equipment, brought up by another contractor, and he quickly sent me all the information I needed to determine that the panels I purchase from him were top of the line with a 25 year warranty.
Since my original purchase of a 3kW system, Power Guru has set up a battery bank and inverter system for me and the care his people took in educating me and my wife was unbelievable.
All of these reasons are why I asked Power Guru to help me start Southshire Community Solar here in Bennington VT and Bhima's patience in the project has surpassed mine as we just broke ground for a 90kW community system last week that has been in the making for over a year.
The roof doesn't leak, the meter is spinning backwards, the cost was exactly as quoted, everything was done promptly and cheerfully. What's there to complain about? While my own bank had recently rejected my creditworthiness for reorganizing my mortgage, the credit union that Power Guru steered me to approved this solar panel loan easily.
This crew has been excellent! They are all lovely interesting people, who were so helpful every step of the way! My only advise, and this is NOT a reflection on them as a company in anyway, is that the prospective solar owner have the area staked and reviewed by both the owner and Bhima before installation of the panels. We had a a misunderstanding and if this had been done I could have had the panels a little lower in my field and they would have been completely hidden from the house.
IF a problem arose some one would be there that day, and they were all available for questions 24/7!
BUT I am so happy I had this group....I would not have wanted anyone else. Bhima was always looking for the BEST PRICE for ME! to help save in the cost. Everyone was very professional, very clean, very accommodating.......I never worried about having them in and out of my house. I consider them all friends! It is worth it!!! Especially with this very special team!!!
