Just Perfect

Usually I start reviews with something positive, but I'm going to start with this: If you use anyone other than NEC Solar to install your system, you are making a mistake. My experience was above and beyond amazing, and 2 years later, hearing horror stories from neighbors and friends who used other companies, I am even more impressed by my experience with NEC. A dedicated roof team came to install the roof mounts before the electricians came to install the panels, then after my solar install, the roof team came back to install the critter guards - I am sure my roof won't have leaks thanks to the professional job. I had some things in my electric panel that the electricians noticed weren't up to code, and they just fixed it, no questions asked, and they didn't try to charge me extra. The install is very neat and clean, without ugly exposed conduit on the roof. Even after the install, the last day was a very late night after my home's unique build caused some delays, I tried to tell them I'd clean up, and they still insisted on sweeping up their debris themselves and left my basement cleaner than when they started. Attention to the smallest detail even after I gave them their money! 1,000% Recommend.

Happy Solar Customer

I wanted to use solar power for a while, but I owned a condo and couldn’t put it on the roof. So when I got a house, I looked into solar for electricity. I had heard of NEC Solar from signs around my town, so I reached out to Liz Thomson. They call her Solar Liz for a reason. She was great. She spent a lot of time with me reviewing all aspects of solar and gave me a binder with all the information on going solar – including pictures of my house and how much solar it would produce, rebate, and breakeven information. Every aspect of working with NEC was great. They kept me informed of when it would be installed and then when it would be ok’d and turned on by Eversource. It was so great and worked so well that I put on more solar panels a year later on the addition to the house with Liz and NEC.

Very pleased with the entire process from the initial design through installation and final permission to operate. The installation even looks good, which you don't often see with rooftop installations. This is a local company that specializes in electrical contracting and solar in particular. They were able to expedite permit pulling and inspections. The entire schedule was "as advertised" and their project lead, Nick, kept us informed and helped us with logistics such as registering for SRECs and even forms to claim state and federal tax credits. Highly recommend.

Almost "artisanal" solar panel installation

When you think of placing panels on a roof, you may think that it's just a "plug-and-play" installation based on the area available - not the case with NEC Solar. We have a difficult roof, and from the projects beginning definition through planning, design and then installation it was super-customized to maximize the potential of the system with the roof lines. Installation also resulted with no visible cabling, a feat that required ingenuity on the installation team's part. It really felt "artisanal" with an accompanying super professional team. Plus, the process with getting into production was "frictionless" with regards to the utility company and local permitting.

Great service and installation

Dana, Wyatt and the NEC team did a great job guiding us through the process from start to finish! Their attention to detail and quality of workmanship are second to none.
