Commonwealth Energy provides residential and commercial solar, roofing, and energy efficiency solutions to clients looking for a more sustainable and renewable way to power a property. The company is both family owned and operated and provides a local service that thousands of clients have benefited from since Commonwealth Energy was founded back in 2017.
The Commonwealth Energy staff is licensed and insured. In-house engineers design systems that are intended to increase the home value while empowering home owners by allowing them to actually own their own energy production. Roof and solar bundles are also available to clients that have needs in both areas.
To date, Commonwealth Energy has successfully completed more than 1,300 solar installations helping clients save an average of 42 percent on their utility bills year over year. To make solar more affordable and accessible, Commonwealth Energy also offers a number of financing options to increase savings or meet budget restrictions or needs.
The feature that sets Commonwealth Energy apart from its competition is its 25-year system coverage plan. This provides clients with the peace of mind that production and efficiency can be expected throughout the duration of the system’s lifespan. Features include all of the following components:
Unlike most installers that simply put up a system and are never to be heard from again, Commonwealth Energy will provide continuous service to ensure maximum production and necessary maintenance.
While Commonwealth Energy is primarily focused on helping clients utilize solar energy to power their properties, the company also offers energy efficiency solutions to continue to maximize the monetary savings. Instead of going to multiple contractors to work on similar projects, Commonwealth Energy offers the following all in-house:
This all-in-one service allows clients to maximize energy savings without the headache of reaching out to multiple providers.
Purchasing a solar system outright is simply not in the cards for many clients. The average residential solar system costs anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 to be fully installed. While it is the most economical route, it is not the most feasible. Commonwealth Energy understands this and wants to help as many people realize the value of solar as possible. As a result, the company offers multiple financing options, like loans, leases and/or power purchase agreement.
There are pros and cons to any financing avenue, but Commonwealth Energy will disclose all of that upfront to clients. Most solar companies will only offer one financing solutions, but recognizing the need for flexibility, Commonwealth Energy offers three different purchasing options.
Complete protection and coverage of system functionality and continued care is beneficial, but so is the original technology being installed. Most clients looking into having a solar system installed are invested in exactly what brand or manufactured equipment will be installed through a particular contractor.
As a result, a vast majority of solar installation companies will disclose equipment partnership or dealership information. Unfortunately for Commonwealth Energy clients, this information has not been publicly disclosed making it difficult to determine whether or not tier-1 solar technology is available through the service.
Despite claiming to be licensed, insured, and certified, it should be noted that Commonwealth Energy is not certified through the gold standard organization within the renewable energy field — the NABCEP. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners is considered to be the ultimate certification that solar professionals can obtain.
It is not required to be NABCEP certified to offer solar installation services, but it does go a long way in demonstrating skill and knowledge of solar system innerworkings. Many solar installation companies will have at least one NABCEP-certified professional on-staff to oversee installation efforts; however, Commonwealth Energy does not offer this.
It is not uncommon for family owned and operated enterprises to solely focus efforts on one specific geographic area. Most companies will only provide solar installation services in one state or a select few cities in a particular state. However, many of the east coast contractors have found it easier to expand as states are geographically smaller and close together.
Unfortunately, Commonwealth Energy has not made these expansion efforts and remains committed to solely servicing clients in the state of massachusetts.
