My experience with NEC is extremely satisfying.

I chose NEC because first, they are an established electrical contractor. My project was a gut rehab and I could tell from the get go that their experience in power and solar was what I needed. As a construction management consultant, I have hired many contractors and one gets a feel for thoroughness, professionalism, and capacity. NEC is the total package. From sales engineering, questions and scoping, pricing, knowing the intricacies of the industry, rebates, engineering, coordination with other contractors, installation of panels, tie ins, operations, and finally the amazing results of living off the grid. NEC made it happen for me. Their projections exceeded my expectations as did their performance. I would highly recommend them.

Nothing short of amazing

I highly recommend NEC Solar! All of the employees are professional, highly knowledgeable and responsive. Even after my installation, they check my solar production to make sure everything is working perfectly. Honestly, what more could I ask for! I'm so happy that I switched to solar and enrolled in the RI REG program. Special shout out to Dana and Megan who answered my numerous questions and held my hand through the process!! I did A LOT of research with different companies and I'm glad I choose this one. Also, the panels look beautiful on my roof!

Great experience

My husband and I are thrilled to have "gone solar" with NEC! It was a pleasure working with Artie. He took the time to understand our needs, patiently walking us through all the details and options. His efforts to help us to find the most aesthetically pleasing and functional layout for the panels on our roof were especially appreciated. Alex diligently managed the project. I had no idea how much was involved in having solar installed! Utility paperwork, building permits, structural analysis, SMART program paperwork, etc. But Alex stayed on top of everything for us. When it came to having the panels added to our house, there are several highlights for me. The installers willingly put in extra effort, at my request, to run wiring through attic spaces instead of outside. Their work looks fantastic! After getting a system myself, I've noticed other solar installations in town that used aluminum-colored rails that stick out past the solar panels. NEC, on the other hand, used all black rails with end caps to provide a nice clean look. I appreciate the attention to detail.

High Quality Work and Ahead of Schedule for my Solar Project

I wasn't thinking of going solar until an unsolicited person knocked on my home door and asked if I wanted a free estimate on solar. Although I was sold on the idea, I wanted to find out any good reviews on them so I posted an ask on Facebook Needham site for reviews on good Solar vendors, and an overwhelming majority of responded that NEC Solar with Artie Crocker was by far the best Solar experience they had, so I was comfortable choosing NEC with Artie as my Solar vendor over that unsolicited salesperson who introduced me to the idea.

Excellent service

Artie is a trained engineer and was very helpful in designing the project. Installation was easy. They informed us whenever they needed to come over, were polite, and worked efficiently. There was a little glitch that they resolved very quickly. Excellent service and product.

Great communication!

I did my homework as best I could to understand PV systems and what my house could support. The sales and installation team always kept me informed of the choices I would need to make as well as the ways these choices might impact installation and ultimately energy production. There were no surprises which is exactly how home improvements should go (contrary to what HGTV shows us.)

A great group of people, very focused on customer satisfaction

I looked at ALOT (11) of solar developers and was overwhelmed with the differences in price and forecasted energy generation. This went away after I met the TEAM from NEC Solar. They worked with me to get me exactly what I wanted (maximum production, panel selection and a Battery Energy Storage System) at a competitive price. Throughout the entire process my project manager kept me updated as to the progress of installation as well as interconnection, MA SMART incentive application and registration and finally getting the system energized.

Outstanding expertise and service!

The whole NEC Solar process was wonderful, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product! From the start, they worked with us patiently to meet our unique needs, explain and simplify the process, and minimize expenses. The whole team, from Liz to the project manager and electricians communicated well and worked neatly and efficiently. Gratefully, NEC Solar coordinated with the utility company, town, and the state to take care of turning on the system, tax credits, rebates, etc. Now we have a gorgeous system turning photons into usable electricity!
