Pennsylvania, with its diverse landscapes ranging from the rolling Appalachian Mountains to its historic river valleys, is not just a state of rich history but also a progressive player in the renewable energy sector. Embracing solar power, Pennsylvania is carving a path towards an eco-friendly and sustainable future. The Keystone State has implemented crucial initiatives like the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard (AEPS), aiming to increase the use of renewable energy significantly by 2030, with solar energy being a key component in this visionary plan. Beyond policy efforts, Pennsylvania is notable for its solar grant programs and tax incentives that encourage solar adoption among its residents.

    Solar Energy World just installed solar panels on my house and I couldn’t be any happier. This … More was the most exciting, fast and hassle free experience I have had on home improvement project. Frank and his crew were super nice, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful crew. I’m really pleased and can’t wait to get BGE out of my life!

    Everyone, from my solar analyst (salesperson) to HQ Scheduling to the installation crew did … More a superlative job. Lead installer was willing to listen to my explanations of how to overcome my house attic's particularly challenging routing to access the proper roof (under which the panels were installed), and how to cut across to the soffit in order to install a PhotoVoltaic cable run both much less conspicuous, as well as shorter and more elegant. Cost with the Solarize Virginia LEAP Alliance group price was around 2/3 that of another company's estimate (and I found out that other company had much worse customer reviews after the sale, too), so we are also very happy with our buy.
    Photos show that both the panels, as well as the electric cable conduit run, are very discreet.

    Our experience with SEW has been great! Our salesman, David Bishins was extremely knowledgeable … More in explaining how the system worked and then the step by step process for the installation. Someone always kept us informed about the schedule and what to expect next.
    The installation crew of Nick, Jonathan, and their helpers was top notch. We owned a residential remodeling company for 38 years and were extremely impressed by their professionalism, communication skills, politeness, and cleanliness.
    Like everyone else we are asked to fill out these surveys all of the time. I'm a very tough grader, giving out top ratings very rarely. I always think that there is room for improvement. With that being said, I would rate SEW a 5+.
