Solar Solutions for the Informed Customer


About Solar

Same Sun specializes in custom home, business and small industrial solar PV (photovoltaic) arrays.  Our ONLY business is  photovoltaics.

Happily, the cleanest form of energy is one you can own!  Even a modest solar array offsets TONS of carbon.

For a business, being environmentally correct is financially smart.  In addition to the net metering and federal tax benefits, a business may claim an additional state tax credit and depreciation.

Same Sun is proud to have worked with many local businesses to enable them to own their own power.

Going solar makes sense, and making sense makes dollars.

Solarizing schools is a special mission of Same Sun.   We are proud of our track record of working with the school administration to present the least intrusion to staff, faculty and students as we install the array.  

It gives us tremendous satisfaction knowing that our work provides educational opportunities for children to see solar energy as a “new normal” in powering their schools.

Get Same Sun involved early in the building process.  We can work with you or your contractor to advise on roof orientation and  pitch, placement of skylights and obstructions and building materials.  This project is one where the solar installation was contracted before construction began, and as a result, the home was built with optimal solar resource with no obstructions to inhibit performance.


See what our customers are saying!

The principals of Same Sun are proud to visit each new solar owner upon completion of their new array, to inspect the work and be available for any questions.  We are always easily available in person at our offices, or by telephone or e-mail.   We will serve as a liaison with your utility company for information and billing and, if necessary, with a major component manufacturer if there are problems or concerns.  In addition to the manufacturer’s warranties, we guarantee all workmanship for five years.
