Our goal is to help you cost effectively cut your energy use and environmental impact.
We are a locally owned company specializing in solar heat & hot water, solar photovoltaic electric systems, heat pumps, energy audits, insulation, radiant heating, condensing gas boilers, and many other products to reduce your energy consumption, cut your fuel bill and reduce your carbon footprint. We have been installing solar since 2008. Our office is located in Portland and our showroom has a number of working systems including Mitsubishi heat pumps and a photovoltaic system.
While all of us have a strong interest in the environment we see energy upgrades as money saving option for families and businesses. Maine has some of the highest energy costs in the nation. We are the only state relying primarily on expensive, environmentally harmful, oil. Our housing stock is older than average, leaky, and poorly insulated. When we look at the many ways other states are conserving energy and cutting their fuel bills Maine is two steps behind. Solaris wants to change that.
The reason to use Solaris is simple: you need a quality product, installed right, by a dependable, experienced, honest company, that stands behind every job 100%. We are Maine certified solar installers and hold all HVAC licenses.
A gentleman at a home show asked, "Why should I buy from you instead of our competitors?"
Your systems are going to last a very long time and our workmanship will stand the test of time. Many times our price is not the lowest but when you look at what we are providing, and consider the long term impact of cutting corners, our price is a bargain.
We believe that educating the public is an important part of our job. Lots of people we meet have no idea how solar works or the benefits it offers. Many have no idea the high percentages of homes using solar worldwide. A few still think it does not work in Maine because it is too cold (cold does not impact evacuated tubes and actually helps PV electric). We are happy to answer the "stupid questions" because we asked them too! We have provided classes for groups and schools and we regularly offer free solar and energy saving seminars. Getting homeowners and small businesses away from the upheaval of oil dependency is largely an educational process and we are ready to help.
We believe that educating our staff is critical. While improving technical skills and keeping up with changes in technology is important we take it a step further. Since we look at the whole house as systems we continue to broaden our knowledge base in building science, indoor air quality, energy efficient construction techniques and more. We don't claim to be experts in these fields but we can identify times when we need to recommend other professionals.
