Southern Vermont Solar

Southern Vermont Solar

Our company was founded by Simon Piluski, a solar electrician and multi-generation Vermonter. With over 20 years of experience in the solar electrical and mechanical trade, he has become one of Vermont’s key experts in the solar field, and leads our team of experts in designing, installing and servicing ground mounted and rooftop solar systems from large commercial to small residential sites. Simon and the Southern Vermont Solar team give you the personal attention you are looking for as you go through the process of going solar.


Our mission is to be a sustainable local business that helps our community make a bold transition off of fossil fuels and shift to clean, renewable energy. We provide expert and affordable solar design, installation, and troubleshooting services that serve as sound, green investments.


  • We use our technical expertise to customize solar systems to fit your unique site and personal goals: Southern Vermont is not a cookie-cutter community, and neither is our work. We thoughtfully and professionally approach every step in the process with your needs in mind to provide a solar system with optimal efficiency and quality.

  • We guarantee our outstanding work and equipment: We offer our customers a 10 year workmanship warranty, and use only premium materials and equipment from the most reputable manufacturers with solid long term warranties.  If a warranty claim is necessary, we will work with our manufacturers to provide a solution and remedy within an acceptable time frame, limiting the down-time and loss of production.

  • Our contracts are clear and succinct without lots of fine print. We work to be clear, transparent and honest in our business.

  • Our electrical work is exceptional, clean, and exceeds all safety standards, NEC requirements, and local/state regulations. Our customers are always impressed by our electrical work. Solar electricity is Simon’s passion, and it will show up in your project, whether it is a small 3 kilowatt residential installation or a 500 kilowatt commercial project.

  • Our pricing is competitive:  Part of our mission is to make your choice to go solar a no-brainer where you get both an exceptional solar system and a good investment. Being an installer-direct company, we are efficient and keep overhead low so we can be affordable.

  • We do NOT sub-contract: We use our qualified and long term trusted employees to install your solar.

  • We are your neighbors and care about you and our community: We are not a company just worried about our bottom line or expansion, but actively care about the sustainable well-being of the community we live in, our employees, and the people we serve. We hold ourselves accountable, and are motivated to go above and beyond in everything we do.

  • We are committed to creating fulfilling, livable wage jobs that feed our local economy: Investing in our company is investing in our community, keeping money local and the economy strong.
