Qualifications and Accreditation

Every great relationship begins with trust. The type of solar electric systems that Solar Symphony builds last a very long time (half a lifetime, maybe more). It is our hope that our relationships with our customers will last equally as long. We work very hard to be the kind of contractor you can trust today and many years into the future.

We’ve also built our business to last a very long time, to be resilient — able to weather the ups and downs. Our company will soon be employee owned and we don’t have any debt. Our strategy of providing compelling value will also give us staying power. Real value and customer service is popular in boom times or recession.

Our company has the experience and qualifications to deliver on our promise of designing and installing the highest quality solar energy systems, on time and safely, with high customer satisfaction, at a low cost.
