Couldn’t be happier with Suncommon!

We had solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall installed in 2019 and have been very satisfied. We first worked with Zack Mostov, who explained what was being proposed and answered all of our questions. The installation crew was remarkable! We have referred two of our friends to Suncommon and they too have gone solar. All in all, we have nothing but praise for Suncommon.

Excellent experience

We got solar panels from previous company years ago and just had a Teslawall installed. Communication was excellent. They accommodated some family needs that came up during the process with ease and grace. They are efficient, knowledgeable, and also pleasant and fun.

SunCommon is the only solar installer you need!

People tell you that you should interview at least 3 contractors before making a decision... well, when it comes to solar, SunCommon is the only installer you need! This is a top notch B Corp company placing people and planet before profit and they walk the talk. Every person at SunCommon that I have dealt with is a hard working, good human who wants to do right by their customers and the environment. They are true believers in providing people with honest education about solar and the products they install. SunCommon is invested in the communities they service... advocates for a sustainable future and fighting climate change. My solar adviser, Craig Hightower, is simply the best and is super knowledgeable. He broke down the process piece-by-piece and clearly demonstrated how I could afford a solar system. I asked A LOT of questions and we spent A LOT of time figuring what size system would offer the best payback for my needs. He was very patient with me every step of the way! Hands down, I would trust SunCommon with my solar installation time and time again and I recommend them to everyone!

SunCommon Ground Mount Solar

We engaged SunCommon (NY) to design a ground mount solar array for our farm and were thrilled with the entire process. Everyone we had dialogue with during the process was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. We are thrilled with the way the array came out and we started producing green solar energy in mid-September 2020. On the sales side, Craig patiently answered all of our questions and came during the install to make sure everything was going smoothly. The install team lead by Joe and the project manager, Loralee seamlessly guided us through the process. We would recommend SunCommon to anyone looking for a solar solution.

Great experience

We've had SunCommon do two solar installs for us now. They are great to work with, offered us top quality products, and the solar has worked just like they said it would. They are local, but also big enough to be really professional, best of both worlds. We needed more solar because we have solar heating and cooling, also from them (heat pumps), and electric vehicles. Our roof was full so we installed one of their beautiful solar canopies and love it! Our most recent installation with SunCommon was a two powerwalls (batteries) to keep our home safe and secure when the power goes out.

Courteous, patient and respectful.

We had a lot to learn about solar when we first began discussions with Craig from SunCommon. He was expert and patiently worked through all our questions and decisions. I have no hesitation in recommending him and SunCommon.
