Customer Testimonial

“5 stars really isn’t enough . . . It’s not only hard these days to find service like this, it’s just as hard to provide it, and I give Tyler great credit. We were also doing an addition on our house, so that complicated things even more—having to deal with other contractors to work around—but they did it very professionally. From the start, Tyler was always there to answer any questions we had or help us get things squared away. It didn’t stop when the installation was completed—anytime I had a question, he was always available to answer. I don’t think we could have picked a better company to do our solar. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t think a second about having Buffalo Solar Solutions do our job.”

The numbers in this case study pertain specifically to this customer. Prices and monthly solar payments are based off of current market prices and numerous other factors. (Get your free solar consultation and solar panel estimate »)

*Customers are still responsible for paying the basic hookup fee to the utility company (in this case, National Grid), which ranges from approximately $15–$17 a month (plus tax).

**This customer’s solar payment was a little more than their average electric bill due to the four different solar arrays and additional labor the job required. (Two to three solar arrays is normal.) Most of our customers choose a 15-year term, which in most cases brings their solar payment down to the same cost as their average electric bill or sometimes even cheaper! Keep in mind whichever term the customer chooses, they can pay off their system early with NO prepayment penalties.
