"Comments on our solar system purchase from NuWatt Energy"
Reviewed Jul 17, 2019

We chose NuWatt Energy for the purchase and installation of our residential solar panel system because the initial presentation of the product was thorough and understandable.
We worked with Maan Alawa throughout the sales and installation process. He provided us with detailed information about the financial and installation process so that we felt comfortable throughout. His responses to our questions and concerns were speedy and accurate.
The installation was completed in the time that was promised and our system was up and running sooner than we expected. We have been online for several months and continue to be pleased with the system operation and savings.
Overall, we are very satisfied with our purchase and the outstanding service provided by the people at NuWatt and would heartily recommend the NuWatt company for a solar system.

NuWatt installed solar panels on the roof of our home. They made the process very smooth and efficient right from system sizing, permitting, installation, to system turn-up. The entire process took less than 60 days from quote generation to system turn-up. Maan Alwa and his team are very professional and diligent in their efforts. They provided guidance throughout the process and were very accommodating of requests for any changes to the system. I highly recommend NuWatt. They are already working with some of my friends and neighbors on their solar installations. Keep up the good work NuWatt !

NuWatt Energy is not only top of the line, when it comes to technical skills, as in all things electric and solar panel systems, but their communication and utmost respect for their customer and other collaborators is Outstanding!!!
The process of my solar panel system, was anything, but straightforward, there was a third party community agency, that facilitated the start, of the process, there were weather issues (so much cold rain), there were inventory issues, all resulting in delays, catching up, (none of which was in their control) my own vacation, even presented a challenge but NuWatt Energy was always in direct communication with me, they always gave me options and asked, what worked best for me. We did experience a, "bump," in the road, but they handled it swiftly and with the utmost integrity. Even after my system was installed, they have remained in direct contact with me, and serve as my technical guides for understanding and learning about my system. I have high standards for companies, I do business with, and NuWatt Energy exceeded my expectations! They belong at the top of any installer list!

I can't recommend these guys highly enough! Their attention to details, their after-the-fact support, their price are all outstanding. We just moved and NuWatt will be doing our next system as well. Our previous location had several unusual challenges, and NuWatt worked with us all the way to deliver a great installation. The crew was quick, clean, and neat and we are very happy with the finished array.

"NuWatt Solar Energy System"
Reviewed Mar 06, 2019

Aiman Alway set up our system in 2011. As of March 2019, our system has almost paid for itself. Our 28 panel array is on our garage facing due south.
Once we paid our deposit, it was only 2 weeks until our supplemental electricity system was installed and operational. There was no mess, neither inside nor out! NuWatt has a policy of paying you $500 if another person signs up after viewing your system. We have certainly availed ourselves of that option! We have recommended Aiman and NuWatt countless times!

"Awsome solar savings!"
Reviewed Mar 05, 2019

Had our roofs redone and new solar install last year, both with NuWatt. We both like the look of the all-black panels and immediately started producing enough solar energy to cover current usage plus on top of that the payments we get towards SRECs. Thank you, NuWatt Energy.

In June of 2011 Mr. Aiman Alawa of NUWATT ENERGY"s installation f our solar panels was one of the smartest things we did to save electricity and lower pollution. Mr. Alawa designed a frame on our garage roof that more than doubled the number of solar panels. The performed exactly as he promised . We went on line in July of the same year and have generated more than 61 megawatts of electricity and many SRECs since then. We have zero problems with the array. I highly recommend NUWATT for any solar installation both residential and commercial. I encourage people to visit and see our system. Thank you Aiman for your design and work!

"Very pleased"
Reviewed Mar 01, 2019

We had our system installed February 2018. Our rep, Maan, was great from start to finish. Very professional and knowledgeable. He answered all our questions patiently and we are happy that we opted for a high-end system that erased our Eversource electric bill. The install went without a single issue and their crew members were very efficient and courteous. I highly recommend Nuwatt Energy for the smooth experience we had with them. We are literally saving thousands per year now! Definitely using Nuwatt to add more panels for our new Tesla.

My situation was a little tight with SREC II cut off dates expiring. NuWatt worked with me on some crazy timeline, and got the installation done well before the cut-off. Their office team, crew knew what they were doing, very professional, hard working men that always showed up on time and got the installation done as per code. It has been a few months since the system went live, and everything is going well! I am glad we chose NuWatt!!

I had a smooth experience installing solar in January with NuWatt Energy. Their efficiency got the system installed and ready for inspection in no time.

The working crew and electricians were very friendly and worked hard all day. The crew and the solar consultant, Maan, were very friendly and personable.

NuWatt is a trustworthy company with a great customer service! I will be recommending NuWatt Energy to my friends!

"Bad communication, slow job."
Reviewed Jan 12, 2019

Had good communication before signed the paper. Once deposit was sent, the schedule will be pushed week by week. It has been four months since the document was signed, and the project is still not finished. Now they stop answering your emails and phone calls. Really bad communication, will not recommend.

"Communication issues"
Reviewed Dec 02, 2018

NuWatt seems great, until you give them the deposit. Then communication grinds to a halt. The contract they want you to sign leaves you a victim to their desire, or lack of desire to actually install the system. You become legally bound to it, no matter how long it takes and whether or not it is actually producing electricity. There are financial penalties for you if you don't follow through with the project but none for them if they don't get the work done. Same if the inspections are not scheduled, the permits not acquired or the paperwork not filed. And if a more lucrative project comes their way, your project will be put on hold. The people you have contact with don't seem to communicate your concerns to the workers who do the install. The installers seemed competant but are not effectively managed from the people running the company. I can't recommend this company.

"NuWatt was great!"
Reviewed May 22, 2018

We are very happy with our new solar system installed by NuWatt Energy, and highly recommend them.
Our house in Jamaica Plain, MA is all electric—we heat the house, heat water, and cook all with electricity, so our usage is higher than for other households of similar size. We’d been interested in solar for a long time, but have an east-west facing gable roof, and weren’t sure whether the technology had advanced enough to make a solar installation feasible with that suboptimal orientation. Well, it definitely has. NuWatt gave us a system projected to produce around 90% of our annual usage from an east-facing array. The system went online in mid-February, and even during those fairly short days, our panels began producing about 60% of our usage. As days lengthened and the heating season wound down, the solar contribution increased, and since May 3rd we’ve been running the grid meter backward. Of course there’s some imprecision in those production projections, so we won’t know whether we’ll actually reach that 90% figure until the year is up, but clearly the system will produce a very substantial proportion of our yearly electric power consumption. And it will do it cost effectively. After the federal and state (MA) tax credits and the SREC sales are factored in, we expect that the system will pay for itself in just a few years. The cumulative savings over the life of the system will be considerable. We now find ourselves wanting to knock on doors in our neighborhood to ask the owner “Are you aware that your roof has a beautiful solar orientation, and that you could be making money from it while doing something green for the planet?”
We received 6 or 7 proposals via EnergySage, narrowed them down to two based on the online information, and had those two visit our site to finalize their bids. Maan Alawa, our NuWatt contact, is a friendly guy, easy to deal with, who responded reasonably quickly to our many email queries, as we changed our minds several times about how big to make the system and other details. Nuwatt also gave us the lowest price per kilowatt. Winter was coming on by the time we signed the contract, so there were some weather related delays, but once installation began, the crew was very fast and efficient.
Again, we are very pleased with NuWatt, and highly recommend them.

"Great system"
Reviewed Apr 02, 2018

NuWatt did a great job. My solar system is paying off well now. My last power bill was negative $94, and I have already produced almost 2MwH of power, which would be 2 SRECs or, around 500$ of additional income. It's winter (well spring now), and I'm "earning" 300/month. Not bad at all. In my town the solar inverter box has to be mounted on the outside of your house, so be sure to plan for where you want this unit to go *before* the day the electricians arrive to install it.

"Gone Solar"
Reviewed Dec 05, 2017

For a while now I have been wanting to go solar and I didn't because of the lack of information available and the high costs. I am so glad I found EnergySage because if it wasn't for all the information on this site I think I would still be double guessing myself and I wouldn't have found NuWatt Energy. In Total I had 9 quotes. After eliminating 6 based on pricing, warranty and quality of equipment I ended up with 3 very good quotes. After questioning all three to death, I felt more comfortable working with John Tehan from NuWatt Energy. He would answer all my questions no matter what, at times late at night. Once I committed to NuWatt, John worked with me in trying to built the best system I could get. I explained to him exactly how I wanted the panels installed on my roof because looks and the location of the conduit was my main concern. Many times I have seen solar panels on roofs and I would say who in the world installed that system. Even my neighbors would say we'll let you be the guinea pig but now they are like wow looks good. My electric bills were outrageous and the whole reason most of us go solar is not to save the planet, we want to save money. My first bill $41 normally $270+. Originally I was told they were not that busy and that it would take 3-5 weeks to get the system installed but in reality when your dealing with city permits and Electric companies it takes much longer. It is a slow process so you need to be patient. My system was signed July 5 and was turned on September 15. So plan on 9-10 weeks. If you're thinking about going solar now is the time to do it. Give NuWatt Energy a chance and take advantage of all the incentives available including Mass Solar Loan income based support and I will guarantee you will be happy in the end.

"13xLG330 on my Garage @ Windham, NH"
Reviewed Dec 03, 2017

I was looking for a company for installing and connecting a small solar array on my garage roof. EnergySage helped me find and compare several companies, including NuWatt Energy. We researched each one and landed on a decision to try NuWatt Energy.

Aiman & Maan at NuWatt were extremely helpful from the start, even when we were just at the research stage. Their pricing was at the front of the pack, their installation plan and materials were of high quality, and they provided lots of helpful advice in the financing to arrive at the most suitable payment plan, as well as helping plan our installation and structure to get the most from the array. Maan helped me through the entire process, letting me know exactly what I had to do at each step of the way – even after installation, he helped me through the full process and got me to the point that I was finally producing power. They were extremely supportive and helped me out even when my own electrical contractor had some issues with his own work to commission and finally connect the array to the grid.

Aiman followed up with me to check on how my installation was producing and further providing me with the ability to monitor production on all panels.

Bottom line – NuWatt made my solar install a painless, hassle-less, economic, even pleasurable, experience. I am very grateful for their helping me produce being my own clean energy in the years to come.

Kudos to NuWatt Energy

"Excellent experience "
Reviewed Nov 08, 2017

I interviewed 8 solar companies through, I have to say there are many salespersons that really don't know what they are talking about. Only 2 companies were thorough, remember that it is not only the cost of panels, installation and warranties to be concerned about, but your project could bear additional cost if roof support is inadequate or additional electrical costs. It was important to us to know all costs before we entered into any agreement. They were through, communicated well and installation went smoothly. We are actually over producing solar. It is great to be able to say this, we could never t be happier.

"Very impressed with NuWatt Energy!"
Reviewed Aug 11, 2017

I had an excellent experience from start to finish with NuWatt Energy. John Tehan was much more than a salesperson: he educated me on all of the solar options, worked with me to find the right options for my home (he priced out various solar panels in various configurations to find the right number of panels for a price that met my budget), and then acted as a project manager throughout the installation process. He was extremely reliable and easy to get a hold of, and we stayed in constant contact through phone, email, and text throughout the entire process. My panels have been functioning for almost a month now, and the production so far is as expected, and I am looking forward to saving money on my electric bills!

This link was helpful as I was sorting through all of the solar options and helped me ultimately settle on NuWatt:

"Great Experience!"
Reviewed Nov 07, 2016

My experience with NuWattEnergy from 1st meeting with Representative to my new solar system they installed being turned on for me by no less than the CEO himself was outstanding. They gave me a clear concise proposal with set dates for completion of different phases of my installation to final completion. They met every single one of the milestone dates as quoted. The system has operated flawlessly and I have not had an electrical bill for over a year since installation. I recently contacted them to ask if they could possibly install a Snow Guard system to prevent heavy cascading snow off the solar panels and they agreed to research what kind of system would be best for my installation. They proposed a system with a very nominal charge for installation and it was just installed last week without a hitch. I can't say enough about this company and their professionalism.
