Maryland’s Solar Panel Experts

Locally owned and operated in Maryland, Solar Energy World is the fastest growing, independently owned solar power system design and installation company in Maryland and the region because we care about our community and the homeowners we serve. When you contact us you will not get an out of state operator or call center. We are right here supporting our local community with green jobs and more ways to go solar than ANY of our competitors.

Here’s how we are different:

  • Lots of happy customers! How many solar panel companies will let you talk to ANY customer you like? We will. In fact when you have a free solar evaluation with us, we let you choose anyone at random from our customer list of over 1500 to call for an unbiased, unrehearsed reference.
  • We practice what we preach. Our headquarters runs on solar power so we know it works. We are the only solar company in Maryland and the region that gets our electricity from a solar panel system that was designed and installed by our employees.  Request a tour and see how it works for yourself.
  • Our systems are custom designed to fit your unique energy and financial needs. We do not sell build-it-yourself solar panel systems or try to force a one-size-fits-all solution on our customers.
  • We take care of all the paperwork for you – so you receive all the tax incentives, rebates and grants you are entitled to – hassle free.
  • We NEVER hire subcontractors. Every person who works on your system is an employee of Solar Energy World, fully accountable to us, ensuring you receive superior service.
  • WE ONLY install high-efficiency, superior solar PV products – Most of our systems are designed with German or American made solar panels!
  • 80 Years of Local Service – We’re not going anywhere! We are locally owned and operated. Our parent companies, Gleeson Electric (since 1956) and HomeFix Corporation (since 1990) have provided roofing, electrical design and home improvement work for many years.
  • Great Financing Options – Your Solar energy home is going to earn you money – you decide how to get it started. We offer more options than any of our competitors, including a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) that lets you get solar panels and installation for $0 DOWN and a purchase option where you can own your system and earn profits.

“Solar Energy World is so organized! I have never worked with a company that makes everything so easy for the customer. They made all the necessary applications from HOA approval to tax credits …. practically all we had to do was sign! That ensured everything was done correctly and in a timely manner. It was absolutely the smoothest process we have ever experienced!” Mary Lee & Richard Barto, Glen Burnie, Maryland

We truly believe tomorrow matters and are here for our customers before, during and after installation. We love our customers and we know they love us because they refer new customers to us every day. But don’t take our word for it. Links to unbiased Solar Energy World reviews are below.

Are Free Solar Panels Really Free?

A lot of people see an advertisement for “free solar panels”and automatically think it must be a scam. Those who decide to investigate further learn that what these ads are actually referring to is a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) offer. The solar panels are not “literally” freeRead More >

We went with the solar system our Solar Energy World Solar Analyst prescribed. I waited a year to submit this so I would have good data and am happy to say our system replaces 64% of our bill (which is even more than he promised!!) and the money from our SREC sales pays the balance of our annual electric costs with money left over that we put towards our gas bill (just as he said the SRECs would do!).
