Great team

All I can say is that the entire team from beginning to end were awesome. Everyone was friendly professional and knowledgeable. Even when a few things had to change they were great about letting us know and working through it. They made sure everything was safe and held up to too standards. They made the decision to invest in solar energy and easy one to make. So glad I had solar states in my corner with the decision from the sales to the install. The entire experience was great!

Quick and Professional!

We had a great experience with Solar States. They showed up with a crew that was well trained and of sufficient size. They knocked the job out in a day, and stayed a little late to make sure everything was all cleaned up. Being in Philly, there are a lot of challenges with parking, building access, etc., but they had clearly seen it all before and made it work. Really happy with the work and the service. Highly recommend.

Great Company with a Positive Mission

Having Solar States install solar panels on our roof this past year is one of the best decisions we have made since purchasing our house in Philadelphia.     If you are on the fence about Solar, just move forward, it is the right thing to do.  Regarding Solar States, it is one of the most pleasant companies I have dealt with in some time.  Everyone (sales, back office, installers, etc) I dealt with was great.  I also appreciated working with a company that is having a positive impact on society through  training youth of diverse backgrounds in an emerging field.   The installers that came to my house were respectful, knowledgeable, and very diligent.  I could also tell that they enjoyed what they were doing. I highly recommend Solar States for your solar solution.

Wonderful to work with--highly recommended!

They pitched the need for solar power and then commissioned our home system, all without fuss and with great efficiency. Their after-commissioning service continues to be prompt and effective. Pleasure working with them--

I loved working with Solar States.

We are delighted with our ongoing working relationship with Solar States. Each phase of the project was supported and clearly explained by the team. The work was quick and respectful of our home. Permitting, financing and connecting with the grid have many sometimes arcane steps, and they made it all flow!

Having the ten solar panels installed on our roof by Solar States was the most hassle-free home improvement project I've ever undertaken. Every step of the process from proposal through installation was handled by friendly, competent professionals who very obviously take pride in their work and mission. All the members of the installation team impressed me with their skill and expertise. I really appreciated that they kept me informed throughout the installation process and completed the work within the specified two-day timeframe.
