This Gardiner resident first came to us in 2011 during the construction of their net-zero home. The initial system size was 9kW with a planned expansion to 12kW. Also in the works was a detached garage with an accessory apartment. With an interest in keeping the garage and apartment net-zero as well, the homeowner opted to install another system on that building bringing the total PV power on the property to 20kW.
The house and garage are all-electric, using no fossil fuels whatsoever. The PV system on the house generates over 100% of the annual energy required for the house. The garage system does the same for the garage and accessory apartment as well as providing all of the required charging electricity for the owner’s Chevy Volt which is used for the daily commute to and from work.
Jason Iahn, Lighthouse Solar General Manager comments, “We appreciate not only the homeowner’s continued desire to use Lighthouse Solar as their solar energy partner, but for their vision of sustainability and example of modern, net-zero living.”
The homeowner’s experience could not be a better reflection of our core values as expressed in their comment, “(Lighthouse Solar) provided the highest quality workmanship and customer service we could ever hope for” and continuing with “After working with Lighthouse, we didn’t bother looking any further.”

"We are committed to building strong client relationships by using industry-leading expertise and customer service to provide high-quality, innovative solar energy systems.
Energetic, professional, and great to work with in every way. We had a wonderful experience and are so pleased that we get a big tax credit AND are producing almost 100% of our home electricity now (selling the rest to Central Hudson and getting a discount on our bill). Rebecca E
Our sales representative, Jessica Barry, from Lighthouse Solar was patient, thorough, and knowledgeable. The company installed our system quickly and neatly. They were a joy to deal with. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Jacinta B
Lighthouse installed a solar array for our home. Everyone of their people with whom we had contact was polite and professional. They handled every aspect of the project efficiently. We could not be more satisfied! Mark S
I have nothing but positive things to say about the people from this office who worked with us--starting with Matt Calardo and continuing through Jason Iahn. They were all nice, knowledgeable, and committed to making this purchase easy for us. Communication was excellent. I think their pricing was fair--at least to the extent that I was able to calculate a very favorable internal rate of return for the investment. I recommend them without reservation. John B
Great customer service. Total clarity on what we were getting into. Although it was a difficult winter, the installation proceeded well. Installer team was great. All the paperwork was clear and complete. We would recommend Lighthouse without qualification. Larry L
We are thrilled with our solar power installation. This is a company that does what they say they're going to do, in a timely and professional manner. They helped us get around the various peculiarities of our site and fiscal oddities. The results are impressive! Thank you! Lena D.
We couldn't be happier with our experience with Lighthouse Solar. They provided expert advice on our system design and sizing, and clearly explained the rebates, tax credits, and financing options. The installers were quick, professional and cleaned up so well when they left you would have hardly known they were there. Lighthouse handled all the paperwork for the permits and inspections. And I love the Lightgauge real-time monitoring website that lets us track both our solar production and power usage. Its nice to know that, in just under one month, we've "socked away" over 400 kWh to help carry us through the winter. Bridget B.
Our experience with the staff of Lighthouse Solar has met or exceeded our expectations in every way. From the initial system design through the final electrical permits everything went without a "hitch" You also have to appreciate their lifetime warranty on their workmanship etc.. Dave G
