CTEC Solar Overview

CTEC Solar is a large solar provider based in Connecticut. While the brand had already started installing solar solutions in 2010, it was only formally founded in 2011 in New England. Since then, it has expanded its service area across Massachuttes and Connecticut to serve clients in the Mid-Atlantic, South, and Midwest. The brand offers turnkey solutions taken care of by their in-house staff. 

The brand takes on projects of any scale and appears committed to residential and commercial clients. They are also involved in the community and strive to impact the environment through partnerships positively. The in-house team consists of experts in a range of fields. This enables the company to provide solutions covering everything from start to completion. The number of the provider’s positive reviews and its A+ BBB rating places the company in a positive light as a trustworthy solar provider. 



Solar Panels and services offered by CTEC Solar

Specific Solar Panels Offered

The company’s website doesn’t state their preferred solar panel suppliers. As the brand is privately owned and independent, it states that it is agnostic in its product choices, offering its clients a more comprehensive selection of solutions. Yet, the team confirmed that they rely only on top-quality panels from local and international manufacturers. We could also determine that they deal with trusted brands like LG, Enphase, and Sunpower.


Additional Services

CTEC Solar caters to every aspect of a solar installation. The brand’s team of experts is qualified and highly skilled to offer the following services: 

  • Siting
  • Design
  • Engineering
  • Interconnection
  • Permitting
  • Procurement
  • Financial support
  • Construction
  • Asset management 


Development:  The company relies on its energy experts, who are familiar with the local policies and the interconnection rules of every operative region. This enables it to identify and develop sites suitable for installing large-scale solar projects to cater to the community’s needs. 


Engineering, Procurement, and Construction: EPC is the second leg of this business’s service portfolio. The company has the expertise to optimize every project, solar and energy storage, to ensure its clients enjoy maximum investment returns. 


Operations and Maintenance: The company offers comprehensive maintenance and repair services to ensure especially its large-scale projects deliver optimal returns. 



Installation costs and process


The company doesn’t claim to be the most affordable solution available. However, some reviews claimed that the company compared very well with other service providers. Thus, while we won’t say they are the most affordable option to choose, they do offer fair pricing for what they offer. 

It does appear as if the brand is committed to open access to affordable green energy for all. Since 2010, the company has played a vital role in the construction, maintenance, and management of utility-scale commercial solar projects delivering more than 100 megawatts of power. 

When we asked the CTEC Solar team about their stance on pricing, they stated that it is important. However, the brand focuses on delivering quality solutions and expert service.

CTEC Solar offers a comprehensive maintenance and repair service to ensure optimal power generation. However, a few negative reviews claim that the company refused to cover clients under this maintenance offer until their call-out fees were paid.



The SolarEmpower View

The brand comes both highly recommended and with some strong criticism from previous customers as well. This team may be the perfect choice for large-scale projects. Even while offering residential installations, this is not the type of project they use to market their brand. It seems fair to say that CTEC Solar may not be the best solution for the residential property owner, but it is still a strong force in the field.

Are CTEC Solar trustworthy?

Yes, it appears to be a very trustworthy company on a broad scale. However, we have to point out that the brand also has several negative reviews to its name. This is something to keep in mind while dealing with this team.

Will CTEC Solar provide proper maintenance?

Yes. Maintenance is one of the more prominent aspects of their business structure; however, customers should clarify the terms related to maintenance beforehand.

Is CTEC Solar worth it?

Yes, there is no reason to state otherwise. One would expect a company operating on such a large scale and being in business for more than a decade to have more positive reviews. Still, from what we could learn the brand does appear to be trustworthy and cost-effective.

Non-existent customer service, after the installation. My calls to Service are sent to voicemail, with no call back. Interestingly, calls to the Operator are routed to the same voicemail box (same person's name). CTEC did a wonderful installation some years ago, then repeatedly failed to even acknowledge me as a customer. It's sad... they used to be so good, but they offer me no choice than to send my business elsewhere. Buyer beware.

This company feels like they…
This company feels like they don't care, at all, about the residential customers they picked up in the 2014 timeframe. For reference, I paid $25,000 for this system and was told (at the time): "In the 25 year period you will save over $36,643!!!". Yeah right (!). Few examples - my system has never performed as advertised. I had/have cracks in the panels and had limited/no support. I've had whole times where the system was offline and just noticed (so the monitoring doesn't work) and when I had them come out, for an electrical fault, I was told they just disconnect panels and don't even try to replace/fix them. I just recently had to go back and forth for them to replace the older 3G monitoring device. They missed appointments, were very short over Email, and didn't even tell me if/when it was done (until I asked). It doesn't seem to be working because the GT Green Bank / SolarNOC portal doesn't have usage information.
