Excellent Provider

Richard and his team worked efficiently, productively and professionally to quickly design, configure, and install a roof-top system with 22 panels on our home. I spoke with several references before selecting Groundhog Solar and they all gave resoundingly positive recommendations. I wholeheartedly agree - I recommend Groundhog Solar without hesitation.

Easy as it can be

Once I chose Groundhog Solar, the process was about as easy as it could be. I had a slightly odd setup but they set me up and had me connected within a month. Time on site was under 2 days, then waiting for inspection. Everything was working and creating electricity within a week. One last step yet to be done, but it has been my fault, and I'm sure once I'm ready they will be out to finish within a few days.

Excellent service

Richard was very professional with reviewing every aspect of installing solar energy. I could trust him with the information he gave me on solar power. He answered all my questions and concerns. His employees were easy to work with and professional. Great product, pricing and service would recomend him to anyone.

Wish I had gone solar sooner

It is a misconception that Pennsylvania is not a good state for solar production. I have a grid tied system installed by Groundhog Solar. Richard is very knowledgeable about the entire process. The electric company inspectors commented that Richard and his crew did the best installation they've seen compared to other homes they inspected with systems installed by other solar companies. I have all electric...heat, water heater, etc. Oh, and I live at a ski area. I have not had my system for a whole year yet, but my bills have varied between greatly reduced to producing way more electric than I use. What are you waiting for? Call Richard at Groundhog Solar for an assessment of your property.

Financial Freedom

With such a big investment in our home and our families future, I soon felt comfortable with Groundhog Solar helping me make such a big decision. When we met with Richard as our Project Engineer, we were convinced the decision we made was the best for us. He answered all of or questions and made us feel like we were the only customer he was working with and always just a phone call away, when needed. It was refreshing to feel like there was not a “High Pressure Sales Pitch” or a secret agenda. It was a pleasure having Richard discuss our needs and desire to be a little more financially independent and environmentally friendly for our future. Both Richard and the installation crew was top notch. It’s with my highest recommendation, GROUNDHOG SOLAR will meet your solar needs!! Robert W. Bebout USN Retired Bedford, Pa
