Not all roof structures or properties are built the same. And not all sites have ideal access to sunlight when installed on the roof alone. Some solar installation companies would just have to forfeit the project, but that is not the case for Valley Solar clients.
Valley Solar offers alternative mounting solutions including:
Valley Solar technicians are trained to handle varying roof types, mounting solutions, and project varieties. By offering varying mounting solutions, Valley Solar clients can rest assured that their system will be placed in the most efficient location producing high-quality energy.
Most solar installation companies target commercial and residential solar clients. Branching out to provide alternative solar solutions to varying project types is not necessarily common within the solar industry. That being said, Valley Solar has done just that offering farming solar solutions to those working in the agricultural industry. Farmers interested in utilizing solar solutions can expect the following from Valley Solar:
By offering agricultural solutions, Valley Solar is servicing an industry that many solar installation companies will not get near.
Valley Solar offers Tesla Powerwall batteries to its customers. The Powerwall is a state-of-the-art energy storage solution that allows homeowners to store excess solar energy for use during peak demand or in the event of power outages.
By integrating Tesla Powerwall batteries into their solar systems, Valley Solar empowers customers with greater control over their energy usage and further reduces reliance on the grid.
Valley Solar claims that behind Alaska and Hawaii, the state of Massachusetts has the highest cost for electricity in the country. To combat these high rates, Valley Solar has found ways to provide efficient solar and battery backup solutions to those looking to cut utility costs and utilize renewable energy.
It is not uncommon for solar installation companies to provide free quotes to interested solar clients. What does vary by company is what is actually included in the quote. Valley Solar has made it a point to offer a breakdown of all key data most clients want in order to make a purchasing decision.
Valley Solar quotes include the following components:
By offering all of this data to prospective clients, many questions and concerns will be addressed.
The company's Valley Solar Savings Pledge ensures that each solar project it takes on is a financially sound investment for the customer.
Before proceeding with a project, Valley Solar conducts a thorough analysis and promises to demonstrate a minimum of 30 percent savings projection compared to utility power. If that is not the case, the company won't pursue the project.
This transparent and customer-centric approach instills confidence in potential clients, assuring them that their investment will result in tangible benefits.
After receiving a quote, most solar installation companies will put the pressure on prospective clients to put ink to paper and lock them into some sort of solar installation contract. This gives solar installation companies the green light to get permitting started and equipment ordered. This can be daunting for some clients as solar is a long-term financial investment.
Instead of putting this kind of pressure on clients, Valley Solar has implemented a contract-free process. After receiving a quote, Valley Solar will then conduct a site assessment. This assessment costs $500 but is completely refundable if a client decides not to move forward. This assessment will finalize systems design and collect necessary data to begin the installation process. Only after this assessment is final approval required.
To facilitate low-cost solar adoption, the company offers a range of zero-down financing options. Customers can take advantage of instant savings with flexible financing plans, including solar leases and Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), all with no upfront costs.
Valley Solar goes the extra mile by also providing financing options for additional services like tree work, re-roofing, and energy storage systems, making it convenient for customers to embrace clean energy solutions without out-of-pocket financial strain.
Valley Solar takes pride in the craftsmanship and quality of its installations. To ensure customer satisfaction and peace of mind, the company offers a 10-year installation warranty, demonstrating its commitment to standing behind its work.
Additionally, Valley Solar provides a standard roof-penetration warranty of 10 years, further solidifying its dedication to long-lasting and reliable solar solutions.

Aside from the battery brand (Tesla), the company has not disclosed what solar panels or inverters it installs on behalf of its clients.
Most solar installation companies make this information public as manufacturing partnerships play a role in many consumers’ decision-making processes. By not disclosing equipment information, prospective clients of Valley Solar are left in the dark regarding the actual solar system equipment.
While the company’s 10-year workmanship warranty is on par with the industry average, there are some top national companies that go beyond that and offer up to a 25-year workmanship warranty.
The Valley Solar service area is restricted to Western Massachusetts. It’s not uncommon in the solar industry to have a local-only company as many solar installation companies limit services to one state or a select few cities within a state. For some, this localized approach can be seen as a benefit.
However, in recent years, some solar installation providers have found ways either through a dealership program or traditional expansion to cover multiple states or regions across the country. This expanded service area allows these companies to service more people interested in renewable energy.
Valley Solar has no plans of expanding its service area and will continue to operate out of the western part of the state of Massachusetts.
