EXPERIENCED TEAM. The Glow Solar team brings over 45 years of cumulative experience in renewable energy; solar system design and delivery; project management; and customer service. To ensure the smooth delivery of top-quality systems, we use experienced NABCEP-certified team members to manage every step of our projects and lead all our installations.

AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE. The experiences our customers have working with Glow are as important to us as the solar systems we deliver. We value quality, integrity, and transparency and are committed to providing amazing customer service, focused on clear communication, responsiveness, and respect.

SIMPLE NO-COST, NO-OBLIGATION APPROACH. Glow is passionate about helping customers explore the potential of solar energy. We are happy to provide the information you need to determine if solar is right for you at no cost and with no obligation, and happy to assist even if you are just looking to learn about the possibility of solar for your home, business, or farm.

PERSONALIZED SOLAR SOLUTIONS. All properties are different and so are the people that own them. Glow makes it a priority to fully understand your home/business, energy needs, solar goals, and budget as a critical first step so we can design and deliver the optimal solar system tailored specifically to your unique situation.

HONEST ADVISOR. Glow is committed to helping customers make smart decisions about solar. We are happy to answer questions about the information in your system proposal and will tell you if we think solar is not a good investment based on your needs and priorities. If you want help evaluating alternative proposals, we’ll do so honestly and make sure you understand all significant differences.

LOCAL & ENGAGED. As a Madison business, Glow knows local requirements and municipal and utility partners well. We are close by, happy to help, and can be on-site quickly if you need us. We embrace Midwestern values and are committed to giving back to the communities we live and work in through a variety of initiatives.

FAIR & RESPONSIBLE ECONOMICS. Glow provides fair pricing and makes sure every project captures all available savings and credits from applicable state and federal incentive programs. We feel that financing offered by solar companies very often is not in the best interest of homeowners - so we don’t provide it. If you are interested in learning more about financing options, we’ll be happy to recommend well-qualified lenders for your consideration.

PROTECTION & PEACE OF MIND. Glow’s commitment to our customers doesn’t end with installation. Glow provides a 10-year workmanship warranty on our installations and all system components carry long manufacturer warranties – most are 25-year. We monitor all new systems remotely to make sure they continue to operate properly and are always happy to answer questions. In the unlikely case of an issue, Glow can provide troubleshooting and service support – at no charge for items under warranty.

48.6 kW-DC Solar Installation at Children's Community School

Glow Solar did an excellent job on our large solar installation. They were especially helpful with assisting us to achieve our net zero goal and taking care of the necessary paperwork for our project. The employees were wonderful to work with and the installation was completed in a timely manner. They did a great job navigating implementation challenges with our utility company and we are very happy with the outcome.

Great Experience

We interviewed around 5 different solar companies. Glow's team was not pushy, had competitive prices, explained things in detail and generally made us feel comfortable. The design and installation was efficient. We have had our panels for around a year and could not be happier. Would definitely recommend.

Glow Solar A+

John and the crew were truly great. We had been thinking about adding solar panels to our roof for some time but were reluctant because we thought it might not fit in with the look of our home. I met with John and he modeled an array for the back of the home and side garage using black panels. Not only did that solution look great, it was also very effective in generating substantial electricity. We couldn’t be happier with the job Glow did for us.

Quality is excellent, communication was ok but did take a bit for the install to complete.

Overall, I was happy with my experience with Glow Solar. They were willing to work with me on the layout and what I had in mind for my solar installation and did not immediately jump to cutting down a tree near my roof like some installers did. There were a few hiccups, but they were all resolved as quickly as they could be and fully to my satisfaction. The overall install from start to finish was a bit slow, but the install was done well, and the conduit was run in a very unintrusive way which we appreciated. So, overall, I do not want to complain too much about the length from start to finish but it did take longer than some others may have. I have had the system fully running since last September and it is producing as unexpected with no issues.
