Long Island's original solar energy company, Built Well Solar is a true "solar pioneer" since the industry's infancy here, capturing the power of the sun since 2001, longer than anyone else.
That's why we are known as the best solar company on Long Island, and proud to be Long Island's local solar experts. At Built Well Solar, we're all about affordable, smart solar, we harvest solar power wherever you live on Long Island... ours is the quintessential Long Island company, right here in your backyard, contributing to our local economy.
Our roots and focus are here -- our founder/owner and employees are Long Islanders and, by choice, we design and install solar energy systems on Long Island exclusively. Mimicry is flattery, but accept no imitators or newcomers!
We’ve made the list five years in a row! We’re proud to say that Built Well Solar is once again a ‘SOLAR 500’ company, for the fifth year in a row since the list's inception. The company is ranked 313th among the 2016 Top 500 Solar Energy Companies in the United States, among the top 100 rooftop solar contractors in the nation and among the top 20 solar companies in New York State by Solar Power World magazine. We were also voted the "Best of Long Island" Solar Energy Business four years in a row in an independent poll conducted by Long Island Press, and the only solar companywho came in as the winner in three categories in Nassau County’s Best 2014 Nassau Happening List -- Green Living, Home Improvement, and Home Contractor.
Don't just take our word for it. Built Well Solar -- and its founder/CEO Dan Sabia, "Long Island's True Solar Pioneer" -- were featured in the "Solar 400" issue of Solar Power World, August, 2014. See the remarkable feature story here. And was interviewed in Long Island PULSE in October 2016 about solar energy, see here.
We take care of every aspect of the system design and installation process, and are known for excellent quality and attentive customer service.

Remember, you have a choice -- pay for a PV system once (paid off in about 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 years) OR pay PSEG-LI bills forever! Solar energy is a no-brainer!
Join the thousands of Long Islanders who have chosen Built Well Solar to help them switch to solar energy, and never look back because those skyrocketing electric bills are gone!
Cut (or eliminate) your electric bills...plug into the power of the sun... It's affordable and, with Built Well Solar, it's easy!
Everyone knows that the cost of solar energy has dropped significantly over the past several years, and that purchasing a residential PV system is the most cost effective, "bang for your buck" way to switch to solar energy.
And, because Long Island has the 3rd highest electricity rates in the nation, this means the dollars homeowners now spend on their whopping PSEG bills can be used to purchase a solar energy system, and in just 3/12 to 4 1/2 years on average, benefit from the FREE electricity it produces for some 25+ years! It's simple. Pay for your PV system once or pay PSEG forever.
Unlike leasing, where a company owns your system and takes over your roof to takes away all of your benefits, when you own the system outright you save much, much more, and you benefit directly from your tax credits. (Yes, contrary to misinformation out there, tax credits are still available!!) No money-down and "too good to be true" offers from out-of-town companies will not serve you best as a consumer.

Long Island's original solar energy company! Your neighborhood is our neighborhood!
It would take much of this homepage to list the Long Island neighborhoods we serve (see many of those below*), but the important thing to know about us is that Built Well Solar is a Long Island company, in fact, Long Island's original solar energy company, capturing the power of the sun since 2001, longer than anyone else in business here today.
This means we know the local climate, we know the local building codes, we know the electrical codes, and we know what it's like to live and work here and struggle with rising taxes and rising electricity rates. It may also be of interest to you to know that we feel it important to contribute to the local economy, since our own sons and daughters are growing up here and trying to buy homes here someday.
Most national companies came into the Long Island market less than two years ago, when solar leasing was first allowed here. They didn't come here from such places as California, Utah, Texas, Colorado, Maryland, New Jersey, etc., to mobilize satellite offices here for no reason. The reason being that leasing is profitable to them. Beneficial to you, the homeowner or building owner? No.
The big announcement from a national solar company recently? Soon it "will use its employees to install solar panels rather than outsourcing the work to third parties." Our big 'news': Built Well Solar has never "subbed out" our installations. Our installation crews have always been made up of our own employees, who do all of our work, maintaining quality control. Fact is, it is flattering to note that we have been asked by several other large companies to handle their installations for them.
Other industry 'news'? A large out of state company also recently announced that they were "targeting a market segment that has been neglected by solar installers over the last few years," the small to medium-size business. Our 'news': Small to medium-sized businesses are right in our mainstay market here on Long Island. We have completed installations for all types of such businesses, from auto body shops to office product providers. They are saving thousands of dollars every year on electricity, and we are proud to continue to serve this market, and help our fellow Long Island business owners.
Call us at 516-695-1000 for more information. Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Why not e-mail us a recent PSEG-LI bill (both sides) for a free analysis of the system size you need for your usage, not the system size a leasing company may most benefit from. Tell us best days/times you are available, and a Long Islander will show up at your door by appointment only, to talk to you and answer your questions -- no high-pressure sales ever, that's a promise.
*Okay, as noted above, here's a list of just a few of the neighborhoods we serve, from Mineola to Montauk, and everyplace in between-- at right.
Do not knock? We NEVER do!! Do not call? We NEVER make cold calls!Customers have told us that some newcomer solar companies to the Long Island market keep calling or knocking on their front doors asking if they are interested in solar energy!
We just want you to know that we are NOT one of those companies. Our entire philosophy is to provide information, and not engage in any type of high pressure sales whatsoever. We are Long Island's original solar energy company, whose goal has always been to accommodate customers who express an interest in solar energy and contact us, not to bother people who are not interested.
If you want information, a better understanding of how solar works, a free no obligation solar evaluation of your home or business, and want to deal with experienced (nearly 15 years right here; no other company has designed and installed solar energy systems on Long Island longer!), knowledgeable, down-to-earth, helpful solar energy pros (and Long Islanders, not out-of-staters) who do not believe in high pressure, then call us today at 516-695-1000 or email us at email@example.com. We won't call or knock on your door....but we will help you answer this solar opportunity, which is knocking!!

High-quality = built well . . .
As our name attests, our solar-electric systems are built well! We have been designing and installing solar energy systems for more than a decade, since the industry's infancy, as a true "Solar Pioneer" company here on Long Island, with a solid track record of satisfied customers and optimally running systems unmatched by other companies.
Consider the importance of our longstanding expertise and localized experience, which counts for a great deal as far as our relationships with the local utility PSEG-LI (formerly LIPA), and the requirements of local building department as far as specific permitting procedures for solar energy system installations, particularly in contrast to newcomers to our solar energy market and to other companies and even chains recently flooding in from out of state.
We offer not only expertise but the practical experience right here in your backyard (solar conditions are different in other places, and so are building departments, insurance requirements, etc.), as well as an understanding of our location's unique weather conditions and utility company/electrical requirements, that make a difference. You can rest easy with our professional photovoltaics expertise, since we handle every aspect of the process, from our first visit to your first reduced electricity bill. Not only that, because we have been through the process on Long Island thousands of times, we know the ins and outs of completing all the necessary paperwork and meeting all requirements, including building permits, code requirements, electrical specifications, inspections, and so on. And, we proudly participate in the Keep It On Long Island campaign for businesses!
Don't be fooled by "oversized" systems. If there's too great a disparity between one company and another as far as recommended system size, think about that. Why would that be? If a solar lease or PPA, the larger the system, the more the finance company benefits. If a purchase, your system needs to be properly sized based on your electricity usage and your specific field conditions, and only an experienced Long Island company offering a purchse -- read that Built Well Solar, the most expereinced one -- will do that for you, so you benefit. It's called doing the right thing, providing the right system size. It's pretty simple.

Also, don't be fooled by reduced pricing of inefficient low cost, low-grade equipment sometimes bought in bulk. And, be sure to think long and hard before being enticed by those promoting so-called "high efficiency" panels offered by authorized dealers locked into offering only that one brand of solar panel. We use only high-quality, fully warrantied equipment -- our hand-picked selection of only brand-name panels and inverters, as well as finely engineered mounting systems -- we select the specific panels and inverters precisely for your individual site's requirements to optimize efficiency and cost savings for you. We are not locked into one brand, but instead select among such manufacturers of solar panels as LG, Samsung, Panasonic (formerly Sanyo), BenQ, Sharp, Kyocera, Westinghouse, Suniva and Trina. Inverters of choice include SMA/Sunny Boy, Fronius, Enphase, Solaredge and Solarbridge. Mounting systems include Unirac and SnapNrac.
We are dedicated to providing attentive customer service. We treat your home or business as if it were our own.
