Since 1998, CMI Solar & Electric has worked to provide both electrical services and solar installation to residential and commercial properties in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. The company is one of the most experienced in the PV installation space in this region of the country.
CMI Solar & Electric is a family-owned and operated enterprise and includes licensed professionals at all levels: apprentice, journeyperson, and master-level electricians and professionals. The company manages the design process, permits, rebate approvals, inspections, and coordination with local power companies.
For solar specific services, CMI Solar & Electric will provide a consultation, a quote, and a design concept; obtain necessary paperwork; professionally install the system; monitor efficiency, and take care of repairs when necessary.
Having been in business for over two decades now, CMI Solar & Electric has made it a point to only employ certified and licensed professionals. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is widely considered to be the gold standard for PV and solar thermal installation certification. For solar installations, CMI has two NABCEP-certified installers and an additional NABCEP-certified sales holder on staff.
To put that in perspective, many solar installation companies work to have one of these licensed professionals on staff and CMI Solar & Electric has three. Additionally, the CMI electricians on staff are all certified with OSHA 10-Hour and completed the OSHA 30-Hour Occupational Safety and Health Training Certification. With some solar installation companies not carrying a single certified professional on staff, CMI has gone above and beyond to ensure well-trained individuals handle customers' projects.
One unique aspect of CMI Solar & Electric is the fact that the company offers installation services in three different states: Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Most solar installation companies in the industry will only service one state or a select few cities within a state. That is not the case with CMI Solar & Electric offering installation in three states expanding the number of home and business owners who can access green, renewable energy.
CMI Solar & Electric installs Generac solar systems on residential and commercial properties. As such, CMI Solar & Electric has become an authorized installer of Generac systems. In total, CMI Solar & Electric employs three Generac certified installers that will conduct and oversee installation of solar panels.
In addition to offering solar installation services, CMI Solar & Electric provides a wide range of electrical services for residential and commercial projects. These services include upgrade and improvement projects, lighting, safety and security, and energy savings. Additionally, CMI provides 24-hour emergency service for when disaster strikes. Many solar companies offer roofing services, but not many provide additional electrical services to clients.
Warranties are essentially a standard in the solar industry. Because the cost of solar systems and installation are relatively steep, warranties are put in place to protect a customer’s financial investment into this renewable energy. Typically, solar companies at least offer a workmanship warranty, protecting their customers from installation errors. There are also many companies that offer warranties or extended warranties on the equipment used. However, CMI Solar & Electric only has the manufacturer warranty available to its customers.
While CMI Solar & Electric offers a high quality solar installation service, the company conducts most of its business and turns a majority of its focus to its electrical service. A majority of the team specializes in the electrical area. While the PV installers know the ins and outs of solar installation, it is not the company’s main service offering. Most solar companies are strictly that — solar installation companies. That is not the case with CMI Solar & Electric.
