Customer reviews:

“Brooklyn SolarWorks is a special company and is definitely the best company in NYC for solar panels. After purchasing our brownstone in Bed Stuy in April 2021, our electric bill was beyond expensive, particularly during the summer (one of our bills was over $800!). Once our solar canopy was installed in November 2021, our electric bill has never been more than the basic service charge plus tax (ranges from $18-21)!”

“This was by far, the best home renovation/improvement project I have ever done. I am thrilled to now have solar panels and all the predictions/calculations provided by Brooklyn Solar, were accurate to the penny. The work was done seamlessly and I haven’t had to pay for electricity since March.”

“Brooklyn Solar is the best to work with. When we were going through the installation process, they took time to answer all my questions and they were extremely fair with pricing.”
