  • "Knowledgable and helpful"

    Reviewed Feb 22, 2021

    In 2017, Cris and his crew installed a ground mounted, 60 panel solar array to power our house, barn, and pool house. It's well situated, and has worked beautifully. A few months after the build was completed, there was a minor technical problem, which they addressed promptly at no charge. Cris has also helped us with WiFi delivery to our pool house, which was previously surprisingly difficult to accomplish. We absolutely recommend them!

    Seed Solar was responsive, efficient, and professional throughout the entire design and installation of our ground-mount solar system. We are very pleased with the results. We hope to expand our system in the future and will choose Seed Solar to do this work!

  • "highly recommend Seed Solar"

    Reviewed Aug 26, 2020

    I'm so happy that I found Cris and his team at Seed Solar doing a search here on EnergySage.. Last week they finished a roof install of solar on my house. I have a background in engineering so I was interested in their components, plan for installation, and all aspects of the mounting and wiring. Every part of the job they were conscientious and careful and clearly had a plan for this to last decades without any issues. I'm incredibly glad I found Seed Solar. I highly recommend them.

    I would recommend Seed for any solar installation. They know their stuff and too my concerns into consideration during the installation and continue to be a great resource when I have questions.

    We had Cris Scharder from SEED install a complete solar energy system for our home. We are very pleased with the outcome. Cris and his crew were efficient and extremely knowledgeable. They answered every question and helped us plan the best system for our space and budget. They are truly top notch in the solar industry!

  • "Fanstastic Company"

    Reviewed Mar 08, 2019

    I had Seed Solar install solar panels for my home and they were a fantastic company to work with. The installation was done on schedule and any small problems I've had since were immediately followed up on and corrected long after I made the final payment. I have been very happy with my system and the customer service they provided.

  • "Solar Panel Install"

    Reviewed Mar 08, 2019

    SEED worked with the Town of Clifton Park to obtain the building permit which required several iterations due to the difficulty of working with the town and required modifications to the layout. Overall I'm very pleased with the solar panel system, which has currently been functioning for 3 months without any issue. Looking forward to the summer months when solar power will really be generated.

  • "Seed Solar is the best!"

    Reviewed Mar 07, 2019

    I am so delighted with the installation and performance of my solar power by Seed Solar. Right from the beginning of the project until today, a year after install, the staff of Seed Solar has been quick to respond to any of my questions or concerns. I fully recommend this company to anyone interested in solar power. AND, I was further surprised with the big tax refund a year after install. PLUS no more big electric bills!!!!! Thank you!

  • "Excellent would do this again!!"

    Reviewed Nov 25, 2018

    Chris and crew very professional, timely, courteous, and great follow-up and follow-through when my PV inverter failed. I had a warranty, no-questions-asked replacement in under a week!! Awesome!!!

  • "Fabulous People to Work With"

    Reviewed Nov 15, 2018

    From start to finish, these are real professionals. Planning, constructing, financing and advice about tax advantages, they covered it all. Workers are neat, work safely and on-time. They clean up after themselves and do exactly what the say that they will do. Most important, the panel system worked perfectly. We purchased our system. We found this superior to the companies offering to rent systems.
