Solar Energy Contractors in New Haven, CT
"Solar City is a one stop shop for adding solar to your home. They use their own workers, no sub-contractors, and they handle getting the permits from the city. Also if you live in a community with a home owners association they will handle the paperwork with them too. They are courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable from the first step of talking to a sales representative to each step along the way with the inspectors, engineers, and installers. My sales rep was very helpful and quick to respond to my questions and provided accurate information. I felt more confident with them because they use their own employees instead of sub contracting the work out to inspectors and installers like some other solar organizations do. Solar city offers many different options for any budget. From a $0 down financing power pay program, county and state financing options (where available), to a straight purchase. I would recommend them to my family and friends if they were interested in adding solar and reducing or cutting out the utility company bill. I look forward to when my project will be completed in the next few months. I hope that this review helps people make the decision to go solar. Warmest regards."

Solar Energy Contractors in New Haven, CT
"SunBlue''s team was professional and very helpful from beginning to end. The salesperson was thorough in his explanations and answered all my questions. The team walked me through (or took care of) each step of the process including the financing, permits, installation, ConEd connection, etc. and continues to be available for follow up and questions. Everyone we spoke with/worked with was extremely helpful and friendly and ensured that the work was finished in a timely manner. Also, arranged financing with no money down and a great interest rate. So far, so good. Love that we didn't have to pay for electricity in the first full month since we had the system installed!"

What types of residential solar power systems do solar energy contractors design and install?


Solar power systems are part of the growing energy efficiency trend. You may be wondering, what is solar energy, exactly? Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun, and is then converted into electricity and/or utilized for heating air or water.

The most common types of alternative energy systems for the home are solar electric, solar water heating and wind power systems. Solar professionals can help with everything from installing solar skylights to implementing complete solar energy systems.

Let’s say you want a solar electric system for your home. An off-grid system basically consists of solar panels and battery banks. These battery banks store the sun’s energy so you can use electricity at night or on a cloudy day. This system is designed to keep household electricity running for about two or three cloudy days; longer cloudy periods require a backup generator. To install an off-grid system, you’ll want to hire a certified Connecticut solar energy contractor. You can find more solar energy contractors in Bridgeport, Waterbury, Meriden, Hamden and West Haven.

Along with off-grid solar, wind and hybrid energy systems that include batteries and backup generators, there are also grid-tied solar and wind operations. Grid-tied systems are attached to your New Haven, CT utility company so if you produce more energy than you use, your meter goes down and you build up energy credits.

Installing solar skylights can save electricity. Sun tunnel skylights are tubular daylight devices that capture sunlight through domes on your roof. Attached to these domes are highly reflective tunnels that draw natural light down into closets, hallways and stairways.

Questions to ask potential solar energy contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
  • Do you have state certification?
  • Will you come to my home for a free onsite consultation?
  • Are you able to repair an older system?
  • Can you provide me with a layout to see where the panels will go and what they will look like?
  • Can you give me any information on Connecticut solar rebate programs?
