Recent Installations and Testimonials

We are really happy with our experience working with Southern Vermont Solar. From the very first contact with them, we were impressed with their professionalism and responsiveness. Putting in Solar power is a major investment, but Southern Vermont Solar really instilled us with confidence that they would do things right.

Their site visit was thorough, and they were very patient with all our questions. The proposal and design were clear and very promptly delivered. They took care of all the permitting processes, and helped us navigate the red-tape with Green Mountain Power.

Victoria and Simon, and everyone on their team, were great to work with ... everything was taken care of with professionalism, courtesy and high standards. Did I say we were happy? We’re actually thrilled! Thank you!
— Olwen and Geetu Wee
It was a real pleasure to work with Simon and crew. They were responsive to my desires and helped me create a structure that gives me much needed under-cover work space while generating electricity and paying for itself over time. Thanks SVT Solar team!

I had the privilege of working with Simon on the 2014 installation of the River Road Community solar array on my property. Simon has a broad understanding of all aspects of photovoltaics and is very creative in his application. He went out of his way to accommodate my needs and explain the choices I had to make during the process. I would enthusiastically recommend him for any future photovolatic contracting.

After talking with a number of other solar installers, Simon and his company, Southern Vermont Solar, stood out with both their presentation and pricing.

We were so pleased with the installation crew. They were pleasant, focused and cohesive and quickly covered our roof with solar panels that have freed us from our high electric bills. We highly recommended them!
