About Built Well Solar Corp.
Long Island's original solar energy company, capturing the power of the sun since 2001. Built Well Solar is Long Island's quintessential "solar pioneer" company.
Capturing the power of the sun since 2001, Built Well Solar began solar energy design and installation on Long Island long before going "green" became trendy, and currently with thousands of satisfied residential, commercial and non-profit customers islandwide, from Mineola to Montauk, and everywhere in between. SEE MAP BELOW SHOWING OUR INSTALLATION LOCATIONS as of early 2013 (our additional installations will soon be added!).
A True Solar Pioneer Founded by true solar pioneer Dan Sabia, whose unmatched combined trade experience and solar energy education led to his becoming one of Long Island's only "two solar contractors in 2001" according to LIPA, when the industry began, Built Well Solar Corp. has since flourished to become Long Island's premier solar energy design and installation company (the other company went out of business). As Long Island's premier turnkey solar-electric provider, Built Well Solar Corp. has worked in conjunction with LIPA (now PSEG-LI)'s Solar Pioneer and Solar Entrepreneur programs since they began.

Fifteen reasons why choosing Built Well Solar makes so much sense:
Unlike newcomers to the area, Built Well Solar is a Long Island solar energy company which has been installing solar-electric systems since the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA, now PSEG-Long Island) Solar Pioneer/Entrepreneur Program enabled solar energy to be installed on Long Island and first began offering rebates. And, when these newcomers or out-of-staters are long gone, off to new solar sales territories in other states, we'll be here in our hometown true to our neighbors and standing behind our work.
We do not engage in so-called sales, and do not engage in high-pressure sales. We DO NOT knock on doors or make cold calls. Instead, we discuss, we educate, we advise, and provide a customized estimate for your review.
We take care of the PSEG-LI application process, handling all of the paperwork and installation requirements of the utility, so you don't have to spend your time on any aspect of this, and our experience ensures everything runs smoothly.
We stay current with regard to new legislation, including any financial incentives such as available federal and state tax credits, so you benefit from our knowledge.
We handle all aspects of the local building permit process, as required by your town or locality. Again, Long Island is our home town, so we are aware of the particular towns, villages, and other unique municipalities here.
We manage every other aspect of design and installation, a seamless process that means no worries for you, while again you benefit from our proven experience.
We conduct an on-the-roof Solmetric SunEye shading analysis of your home or building to install the solar array that maximizes solar energy collection and enables the optimal efficiency for your unique rooftop or ground mount, with panels situated either south, east, west or a combination of aspects, depending on the exposure and shading determined.
We design and engineer a customized system, optimally efficient and well built for your home or business, instead of taking a “cookie cutter” approach (and do not engage in the "oversizing to rent your roof" scheme of leasing/PPAs. This means we choose your equipment from our preselected list only top-quality, high efficiency equipment among only top manufacturers, such as LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sanyo, Pansonic, and BenQ, to name a few of the easily recognized household names of solar panel makers, and we are not locked into a single-source panel provider as authorized dealers are on Long Island. We review the chosen design depicting the panels and inverters with you in advance, showing you the preliminary placement diagram so can see how your system will look like well before the first feet or rail or solar panel ever arrive at your site.
Also, since Long Island is our home town just like yours, we are knowledgeable and experienced with regard to the specific local electrical codes, and we install your system to code, commission the system for start-up, and schedule the required post-installation inspections -- PSEG-LI, electrical, municipal.
We are licensed and insured, with on-staff master electricians and longstanding home improvement licenses in Nassau and Sufflolk counties, and stand behind our work. We offer a free one-year warranty on all installations with extended warranties available, in addition to manufacturers' extended warranties on the equipment.
The company's installers haven taken numerous State University of Farmingdale Solar Energy and Florida State Solar Institute NABCEP certification training courses, and participate in ongoing professional development and training in the latest solar and renewable energy technologies
