How It Started

Our Story

Empire Solar was founded in 2015 with one goal in mind – to provide homeowners with an affordable option to own solar panels at a lower cost than buying electricity. After completing over 2,000 installations, we have established ourselves as the premier solar company in the Hudson Valley.

Before 2015, the only options available to homeowners were leasing programs that would benefit large solar companies far more than the homeowners themselves. Empire Solar was one of the first companies to offer an ownership option that would cost less than leasing and give New Yorkers access to 100% of the tax credits.

In addition to being the pioneers of owning your power in New York, we also blazed the trail for providing services to homeowners that would otherwise be disqualified by larger companies. When a homeowner needs a new roof or trees removed prior to installation, large companies typically don’t want anything to do with that home because they view each leasing contract as an investment. But we took a different approach and built an entire roofing and tree division within our company, which allows us to help a much broader portion of the community.

Roofing

Use your solar savings to cover up to 100% of the cost of a new roof.

Electrical Upgrades

Upgrade your old electric service for as little as $10/month.

Tree Removal

We’ll help maximize your home’s solar potential for no upfront cost.

Testimonials

The most well-reviewed solar company in the Hudson Valley

We were very pleased with the price and professionalism of the salesperson (Mike) and everyone we spoke with. The installation was completed in several hours, in December of 2018. By spring, our electric bill was $20 plus tax, the bare minimum for O & R services. Awesome company!

Great experience! Super easy to communicate with. They went out of their way to come and fix a problem I was having which we later found out wasn’t even related to their work. Very friendly. Highly recommend!

Had an all around great experience with Empire Solar. We had no idea getting solar would be so easy and financially doable. Will is a super nice dude and did a great job of explaining everything to us. And Shannon has been great at guiding us through all the post-installation set up. Highly recommended!

Our bills BEFORE panels were outrageous! The last two years, we have SAVED over $4000 in electric bills – EACH YEAR! BEST DECISION we ever made – we are VERY HAPPY with our solar panels!

As for the price of the panels – we got great tax deductions, and the monthly cost is still LESS than what we paid for electric before panels.

Empire Solar Solutions has made this the best decision I have made in my adult life. All the reasons to go solar are self explanatory, however all the reasons to go solar with EMPIRE may not be. Their team walked me through every single step of this process and they were very deliberate in explaining each phase of the process so I never felt like I was waiting in the dark. Empire never allowed any of my questions to go unanswered….. and I had A LOT of questions. On behalf of the Chestnut family, thank you Empire!
