Solar energy on Long Island - your neighborhood is our neighborhood!
It would take much of this homepage to list the Long Island neighborhoods we serve (see many of those below*), but the important thing to know about us is that Built Well Solar is a Long Island company, in fact, Long Island's original solar energy company, capturing the power of the sun since 2001, longer than anyone else in business here today.
This means we know the climate, we know the building codes, we know the electrical codes, and we know what it's like to live and work here and struggle with rising taxes and rising electricity rates. It may also be of interest to you to know that we feel it important to contribute to the local economy, since our own sons and daughters are growing up here and trying to buy homes here someday.
Most national companies came into the Long Island market less than two years ago, when solar leasing was first allowed here. They didn't come here from such places as California, Utah, Texas, Colorado, Maryland, New Jersey, etc., to mobilize satellite offices here without a reason, the reason being is that leasing is profitable to them - beneficial to you, the homeowner or building owner? Not so much.
The big announcement from a national solar company recently? Soon it "will use its employees to install solar panels rather than outsourcing the work to third parties." Our big 'news': Built Well Solar has never "subbed out" our installations. Our installation crews have always been made up of our own employees, who do all of our work, maintaining quality control. Fact is, it is flattering to note that we have been asked by several other large companies to handle their installations for them.
Other industry 'news'? A large out of state company also recently annlounced that they were "targeting a market segment that has been neglected by solar installers over the last few years," the small to medium-size business. Our 'news': Small to medium-sized businesses are right in our mainstay market here on Long Island. We have completed installations for all types of such businesses, from auto body shops to office product providers. They are saving thousands of dollars every year on electricity, and we are proud to continue to serve this market, and help our fellow Long Island business owners.
Call us at 516-695-1000 for more information. Or email us at email@example.com. Why not e-mail us a recent PSEG-LI bill (both sides) for a free analysis of the system size you need for your usage, not the system size a leasing company may most benefit from. Tell us best days/times you are available, and a Long Islander will show up at your door by appointment only, to talk to you and answer your questions -- no high-pressure sales ever, that's a promise.
*Okay, as noted above, here's a list of just a few of the neighborhoods we serve, from Mineola to Montauk, and everyplace in between-- at right:
Do not knock? We NEVER do!! Do not call? We NEVER make cold calls!Customers have told us that some newcomer solar companies to the Long Island market keep calling or knocking on their frontdoors asking if they are interested in solar energy!
We just want you to know that we are NOT one of those companies. Our entire philosophy is to provide information, and not engage in any type of high pressure sales whatsoever. We are Long Island's original solar energy company, whose goal has always been to accommodate customers who express an interest in solar energy and contact us, not to bother people who are not interested.
If you want information, a better understanding of how solar works, a free no obligation solar evaluation of your home or business, and want to deal with experienced (nearly 15 years right here; no other company has designed and installed solar energy systems on Long Island longer!), knowledgeable, down-to-earth, helpful solar energy pros (and Long Islanders, not out-of-staters) who do not believe in high pressure, then call us today at 516-695-1000 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We won't call or knock on your door....but we will help you answer this solar opportunity, which is knocking!!

WELCOME TO BUILT WELL SOLAR!
Capturing the power of the sun since 2001, Built Well Solar is a true "solar pioneer" since the industry's infancy on Long Island!
Solar Power on LI... Affordable Solar...Solar city, town and country, wherever you live on Long Island... ours is the quintessential Long Island company, right here in your backyard, contributing to the local economy. Our roots and focus are here --our founder/owner and employees are Long Islanders and, by choice, we design and install solar energy systems on Long Island exclusively. Mimicry is flattery, but accept no imitators or newcomers!
Built Well Solar has installed about 10% of all PV systems on Long Island. The company was ranked one of the “SOLAR 500,” placing 293rd of the “2015 Top 500 Solar Contractors in the United States” as well as 75th of the top 100 rooftop contractors nationally, and 13th of the top New York State contractors by Solar Power World magazine (in the previous two years, the magazine ranked only the top 400 (2014) and 250 (2013), and we were ranked among those top Solar Contractors in the U.S." as well), and was voted the "Best of Long Island" Solar Energy Business four years in a row in an independent poll conducted by Long Island Press.
We take care of every aspect of the system design and installation process, and are known for excellent quality and attentive customer service. Built Well Solar -- and its founder/CEO Dan Sabia, "Long Island's True Solar Pioneer" -- were featured in the "Solar 400" issue of Solar Power World, August, 2014.

Remember, you have a choice -- pay for a PV system once (paid off in 3-4 years) OR pay PSEG-LI bills forever! Solar energy is a no-brainer!
Everyone knows that purchasing a system is the most cost effective, "bang for your buck" way to switch to solar energy.
And, since mid-August 2014, PSEG-LI/NYSERDA’s On-Bill Repayment (OBR) has been the answer for homeowners trying to come up with the purchase price. OBR lets homeowners pay for solar energy through their electric bills! It's designed so that your monthly payment is the same or lower than your current monthly PSEG-LI bill, just until you pay off your purchase in usually 5 years, then own your system free and clear and benefit from the FREE electricity it produces for some 25+ years!
Open eligibility for OBR will end April 1, 2015, so sign up today!n eligibility for OBR will end April 1, 2015, so sign up today!Open eligibility was EXTENDED THROUGH MARCH 31, 2016! After that date, only low- to mid-income homeowners will be eligible for this New York State funding, which means an income of about $84,000 annual income for a family of four on Long Island. For those with higher incomes, new funding sources are being made available so that Long Islanders can still benefit from purchasing a PV system, so no worrries.
Unlike leasing, where a company owns your system and takes over your roof to takes away all of your benefits, when you own the system outright you save much, much more, and you benefit directly from all rebates and tax credits. (Yes, contrary to misinformation out there, both rebates and tax credits are still available for 2015!) No money-down and "too good to be true" offers from out-of-town companies will not serve you best as a consumer. Don't take our word for it, click here for more information.
Reduce your electric bills...plug into the power of the sun... It's affordable and, with Built Well Solar, it's easy!
High-quality = built well . . .
As our name attests, our solar-electric systems are built well! We have been designing and installing solar energy systems for more than a decade, since the industry's infancy, as a true "Solar Pioneer" company here on Long Island, with a solid track record of satisfied customers and optimally running systems unmatched by other companies.
Consider the importance of our longstanding expertise and localized experience, which counts for a great deal as far as our relationships with the local utility PSEG-LI (formerly LIPA), and the requirements of local building department as far as specific permitting procedures for solar energy system installations, particularly in contrast to newcomers to our solar energy market and to other companies and even chains recently flooding in from out of state.
We offer not only expertise but the practical experience right here in your backyard (solar conditions are different in other places, and so are building departments, insurance requirements, etc.), as well as an understanding of our location's unique weather conditions and utility company/electrical requirements, that make a difference. You can rest easy with our professional photovoltaics expertise, since we handle every aspect of the process, from our first visit to your first reduced electricity bill. Not only that, because we have been through the process on Long Island hundreds of times, we know the ins and outs of completing all the necessary paperwork and meeting all requirements, including building permits, code requirements, electrical specifications, inspections, and so on. And, we proudly participate in the Keep It On Long Island campaign for businesses!
Also, don't be fooled by reduced pricing of inefficient low cost, low-grade equipment sometimes bought in bulk. And, be sure to think long and hard before being enticed by those promoting so-called "high efficiency" panels offered by authorized dealers locked into offering only that one brand of solar panel. We use only high-quality, fully warrantied equipment -- our hand-picked selection of only brand-name panels and inverters, as well as finely engineered mounting systems -- we select the specific panels and inverters precisely for your individual site's requirements to optimize efficiency and cost savings for you. We are not locked into one brand, but instead select among such manufacturers of solar panels as LG, Samsung, Panasonic (formerly Sanyo), BenQ, Sharp, Kyocera, Westinghouse, Suniva and Trina. Inverters of choice include SMA/Sunny Boy, Fronius, Enphase, Solaredge and Solarbridge. Mounting systems include Unirac and SnapNrac.
We are dedicated to providing attentive customer service. We treat your home or business as if it were our own.

Another Built Well Solar residential photovoltaic installation.
By designing and installing solar electricity systems, we have helped hundreds of homeowners, businesses and non-profits save thousands of dollars every year because these future-thinking Long Islanders now have the sun supplying their electricity needs.
Our residential solar clients are saving an average of $250 per month -- often four or five times that for our commercial customers! And, since rebates and tax credits (and for businesses, equipment depreciation) make solar energy remarkably affordable here on Long Island today, our customers pay off their systems in about 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 years and thereafter have another 25+ years of FREE electricity.
Our customers are amazed by the powerful investment that a solar energy system offers -- saving homeowners hundreds of thousands of dollars over the 30-year life of a solar-electricity system -- just try to find a stock or bond that guarantees that type of return!! For businesses, the returns are even better!!!
