Solar installation

From start to finish I never felt pressured to sign a contract or make a commitment; I was provided all the information about how solar works, how an install goes, and had the opportunity to ask questions. I could call or text any questions I thought of after the initial meeting. I never got calls making me feel obligated to move forward. I contacted NEC when I was ready and every step of the process went smoothly, and I was kept updated with each step leading up to the installation day. Installation went so smoothly, it was like nobody has been at my house. Darryl and Wyatt are wonderful to work with, polite, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend NEC for your solar project. I had met with another company prior to NEC, and it was high pressure selling and wanted a commitment on the spot. NEC is #1.

Solar Install

NEC Solar installed a solar system for our residence. From start to finish their performance was professional and responsive with quality shown throughout. They totally handled both the state and power company liason without us having to get involved. (This is no small issue). If you are considering installing a solar system, I would not hesitate reccomending them.

NEC Solar review

We were very fortunate to choose NEC Solar as our solar contractor. They were on top of the details and kept us informed of the process for the entire project. Their installation was perfect and the projection of energy generated from the panels was highly accurate. Most importantly, if we ever have a question, they are always there to promptly respond. We highly recommend NEC Solar!

The BEST choice

My wife and I had met with representatives of three other solar providers before we met with Daryll Issa of NEC. We had tentatively decided who we were going to invest with. We met with Daryll "just in case" because for us this was a huge amount of money. Daryll proved to be head and shoulders above the rest. His presentation was clearer and more complete. And there was no "salesmanship". When we compared apples to apples NEC offered better equipment for less money with a better warranty. And, Daryll had our trust. This summer of 2022 was a very busy time for NEC with supply parts increasing in price. Our installation took a little more time to be completed than we expected at first, but that was not a problem for us. NEC stood by the contract we had with them and did not try to increase the price. I am writing this in December. Our NEC system generated more electricity than we consumed in November. It doesn't get any better than this. NEC is local and has been in business long enough that I am confident that they will be there for us in the future if we need them.

Highly Recommended

The 7kW system NEC installed for us has been operating for 15 months now, flawlessly. Their installation crews were well-organized and very professional. And Artie, our primary contact, was responsive, thoughtful, and knowledgeable - a big part of the reason we chose NEC. (I was actually shocked at how little some of the other solar vendors I contacted new about the systems they were selling. I learned later that this is because some of them are just middlemen - they actually hire companies like NEC to do the installations.) And NEC stuck with us long after the system went live, helping us get through the National Grid paperwork to get our SMART credits activated. Highly recommended!

We love our solar!

Our journey with Newport Electric Construction (NEC) Solar began four years ago when my son and I met with Daryll, the sales/energy consultant. We went over the proposal, and at the time, we were not in the position to move forward. Daryll assured us there was no pressure and that we could always reach out if our situation changed. Fast forward four years, and here we have an impressive solar system, not just my house but my sons too. There were many reasons why we went with NEC: · Total transparency and no pressure sales. · Premium solar panels, racking, and inverters with a first-rate “bumper to bumper” warranty. · NEC used all black rails with end caps to provide a nice clean look and pay attention to details. · Competitively priced and the system came with a 25-year warranty. · Family-owned since 2008, they have completed over 3000 solar installs across Rhode Island and Massachusetts. · NEC gave me an honest picture of solar panels as a financial investment. One of my sons is an appraiser, and he confirmed that solar panels raise house values by an average 4.5%. I highly recommend Newport Electric Construction (NEC) Solar. I am so happy we decided to go solar with NEC. Only a few months in, we can already see the enormous benefits of solar.
