“My interest in solar began a few years ago when I looked into buying solar for my own home. After seeing how difficult it was to get someone to come out and give me an analysis I decided that Maryland needed a local solar panel system installation company staffed by people who truly care about both educating the customer and providing great customer service. That’s what we have created here at Solar Energy World.”
