Trusted by the People of Rochester
“Highly recommended company. Solar by CIR installed my panels on my house and garage in Rochester, NY. Fantastic company. The consult is professional, thorough, and tailored to each situation. The installation crew is hard working, cleaned up after themselves. The office is incredibly responsive and helpful with any question/concerns. I’m glad I found them.”
“Solar by CIR installed an array of panels Sept 2021 and everything has been operating flawlessly. Everyone I have spoken to has been extremely courteous and professional and the install team did a fantastic job. The electrical work was done to a very high standard- even the inspector commented on how perfectly everything was done. Would highly recommend.”
“Wasn’t sure Solar was going to work for me. After discussing with CIR and learning the benefits including available rebates, increased home value and reduced electric cost, it was definitely the way to go. So happy for all of the information CIR gave me to make a great decision. Install only took a few days and system was up and making electricity. Install crew was great!!!”
