Energy Testimonials

RizzoThe house I purchased from South Mountain continually amazes me. The craftsmanship, the detail, the design is perfect for my lifestyle and for house guests. The solar installation is my most cherished aspect of the house. My energy cost are so minimal they’re hardly worth mentioning. South Mountain has been available to me for questions and issues that have come up. I admire the work they are doing in research and development in energy conservation and their leadership on Martha's Vineyard in preserving resources for the future.

Thank you for following up so quickly on that item. Your orientation about the entire system and environment that our solar energy system operates in was wonderful and greatly appreciated.

We are proud and happy owners/customers… and now feel we have a good understanding of how everything works. We look forward to monitoring our power generation and usage over the coming months and years.

Our experience with you and all at South Mountain has been fabulous.

Thank you.

Hello all. I'm writing you guys to express my pure joy with the solar system your team so professionally installed at our home. My last two electric bills have been $4 and $8, down from around $185 a year ago. Every time I walk past that spinning dial in the basement I can't help but smile. I used to say "what a beautiful sunny day", now it's "what a beautiful sunny day and I'm makin' electricity!" Thanks again and keep up the fine work.

MazarAfter spending a decade considering different types of renewable energy, we landed on solar panels as the best option. We worked with SMC in 2011 to install roof-mounted solar panels on our home. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome.

We found the SMC staff to be very knowledgeable of the solar options and the economics surrounding the cost benefit analysis. The panels were installed on time and on budget. Esthetically the panels blend in well with our roof. We really appreciated that SMC did not overpromise as we actually have been producing more solar electricity then they forecasted for the past 3+ years.

When South Mountain did a deep energy retrofit renovation of our house, the last decision we made was to include PV solar panels on the roof. The installation was painless and professional, and the solar energy production enables us very cost-effectively to have a virtually all-electric house, with efficient heat pumps for heating and cooling. We have the pleasure of seeing online what our energy production is each month and of knowing that each year a majority of the energy used by the house is produced by us, onsite.

I've been referring you guys to all my friends. We love our PV solar panels that proudly cover our entire southern roof, and our small NStar bills and growing SREC checks make it all work.

LoRussoWe would like to let you know how pleased we are with our new solar installations on two of our properties on South Road, in Chilmark. The installation took place without the slightest interruption to my wife and I. I must say, that the installers were at all times, courteous, pleasant to deal with and did their work in the most professional manner. Your whole team is to be complemented. We would be happy to recommend South Mountain to anyone.

DavisSouth Mountain made the process very easy for us, taking care of all the details, to make sure we got all the rebates and credits to which we were entitled. There were literally no hassles for us during construction, and when the work was complete, the house and yard looked better than before. And the results were amazing.

A couple of years ago I took a tour of some affordable houses SMC was building - with PV on the roofs and enough insulation to make them "energy neutral." I decided to call SMC and see if they could do a "deep energy" retrofit and install PV on our 19th century farmhouse in Menemsha. It turns out they could, and they did! They made the process very easy for us, taking care of all the details, including the administrative details to make sure we got all the rebates and credits to which we were entitled. There were literally no hassles for us during construction, and when the work was complete, the house and yard looked better than before. And the results were amazing. We rely heavily on electricity now to heat the house in winter, and have saved close to $2000 a year in propane cost, while spending only $200 for electricity beyond what our PV system provides. And we're saving the planet!

GlasgowOriginally, I contracted the installation of my commercial solar thermal and PV systems to one of the largest solar installers in the Northeast. After their considerable delay in performance on the contract, I terminated that contract and contacted South Mountain. They were not only able to work with the previous contractor in the transfer of all project information, but also able to improve the design and engineering previously completed by the other firm. They then provided a turnkey installation with the expediency I felt necessary. In hindsight, I wish I had contacted them in the first place as I would have undoubtedly saved myself significant heartache and grief!
