Boston Solar does solar different. There are state regulations in place that state a solar company MUST have a one-to-one ratio. This means for every non-licensed electrician, a licensed electrician is required. There are many solar companies that do not do this and take the risk of being fined, so if you are looking at various companies, make sure you ask this question. Any solar energy company that chooses to ignore this regulation risks problems with the inspectors, and many companies do.
We typically have four person crews. We've heard of other solar companies with two person crews. We believe that with additional crew members, we have better control over the quality of the work. This leads to a perfect installation every time, no question. Not only that, we're able to complete residential installations in 1-5 days. On the day of installation, the crew comes to your house, introduces themselves and the lead electricians explains exactly how and what they will be doing. We always listen to the customer's opinion on how they would like the conduit to be run, based on how it will look. Boston Solar understands that aesthetics is important to all customers.
Once the installation is complete, Boston Solar arranges the final inspection by the town, and applies for permission to operate with the utility. Once we have these, the customer’s former electric meter is removed and replaced with a bidirectional meter that recognizes solar power.
