Delivering excellence to make a better, brighter future!
We make solar simple. It's our mission and purpose... because we want the next generation to inherit a world that is cleaner and greener. With this mission, the dedicated team at NY State Solar works hard every day to deliver on the promise of a more renewable tomorrow.
Who We Are
NY State Solar is a solar developer that specializes in the sale, design, and installation of customized residential and commercial photovoltaic systems.
Our team works with homeowners and business owners so they save on their energy bills. NY State Solar has nearly 200 employees and eight locations across New York City, Long Island, and New Jersey. Our custom solar solutions are engineered from the ground-up, and every system that we install is tailored to each property owner's unique energy needs.
NY State Solar is a NYSERDA Gold Quality installer. This designation only goes to the solar installers whom NYSERDA's independent inspections show have the highest levels of quality three years in a row. In 2023, that was less than 4% of solar installers across New York State!
As evidenced by our stellar client reviews, our responsive NY State Solar team provides industry-leading client service and makes the process of going solar easy, cost-effective, and fun.
Within NY State Solar, you will find a seasoned executive team who is versed in the renewable industry, as well as a staff that is comprised of engineers, human resources, operations, IT experts, marketing/communications, outreach, and sales professionals. The company is growing its footprint in the region by applying its successful approach to driving solar adoption in both new and established markets.
Our family of employees pride themselves in treating each solar installation as it was their own – and it shows. NY State Solar clients enjoy working with our team – and aren’t shy showing it on sites like Google or Yelp.
We've also launched EvoSolar, our sister company that allows us to bring the savings of solar to homes across New Jersey - you can learn more about this new adventure at EvoSolar.com!
We’re proud of our industry affiliations too. Our executive leadership team is active in trade industry groups by working with elected officials to ensure that homeowners continue to benefit from going solar.
