Our Profit Motive? In a sustainable world, everyone profits.


Our low price guarantee is unconditional and it’s no gimmick. It’s the result of 3 decades in the sustainable living marketplace, tracking down the most reliable products and the best deals worldwide.


As one of the oldest renewable energy contractors, we can pass our volume savings on to our customers.


Rather than see who can come up with the “cheapest quote” the smart thing to do is, speak with a solar electrical engineer to come up with the “right system” for you.


Friends Solar only offers the best in quality products and services. When shopping you can’t compare just the panels, there are hundreds of other parts that go into your new solar installation. For example: Wire, we use two sizes larger that required and size for future expansion if needed. Rails are one of the places where you can really save. We purchase heavy duty products costing up to 4 times as much as the competition. Nuts bolts and screws; where we purchase only 304 US made stainless our competition purchases China stainless which is anything but stainless! Plus the strength of the asian copies is much less.


You have to be very careful with solarium companies and their bids. With the hundreds of start-up companies over the past 3 or 4 years, most of them are newcomers to the industry. There are a lot of companies out there with sales people looking at computer screens selling packages, who have never even seen the product, and remember that most of them will be gone in a few years. Friends Solar will be here today and tomorrow.


Solar is a new product on the planet, and most people don’t possess the knowledge to make an informed decision, so they must rely on someone else, whom they hope knows what they are talking about.


It is easy for a company to come up with a lowball “Bid” and present it to you. If you don’t know what is or isn’t needed on that bid, it might look impressively cheap.


In the end, it’s the things that have been left out of the bid to keep the initial costs down, what you wind up buying it from your electrician or electrical supply house typically at a higher cost to you than you would have paid from a quality solar installation by Friends Solar.


For maximum efficiency every component of your system needs to be chosen carefully to work together to fit your needs and your location.
