And the more companies you request quotes from, the more likely you’ll find an installer that’s a good fit for you, whether that’s us or not.
That said, the point of this list isn’t to rank these installers from best to worst. It’s simple to list some of your options as a Delmarva homeowner, business, or farmer looking to use solar power to reduce your electric bills and protect your budget with solar.

How to select a solar installer in Delmarva
If you’re looking to install solar panels in the Delmarva area, you have plenty of options. However, narrowing down your list can get overwhelming.
You can keep an eye out for a few things when evaluating local solar installers to help make narrowing down our list a little easier.
- Make sure they service your area. While our list focuses on Delmarva installers, some companies may not travel to every city or town in your state. And even if geographically they’re close, if they’re located in a different state, they may not have the business license needed to do work in your state.
- Look for industry certifications and awards. If a solar installer mentions their workforce has industry certifications, it means their employees are industry experts backed by trusted programs. Look for certifications from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). Awards can also be a great indicator of a quality company, such as making Solar Power World’s Top Solar Contractor List.
- Look at their reviews. Go online and check out their reviews from multiple sources. In addition to the standard ones like Google and Facebook, you can also check out some industry-specific sites like SolarReviews.com.
- Most solar panels and solar inverters will come with manufacturer-backed warranties and guarantees, but not all solar installers will offer their own warranties. These installer-backed guarantees can go a long way in protecting your investment, and it also demonstrates the installer’s faith in their work.
