Fingerlakes Renewable Solar Energy Overview

Fingerlakes Renewables is a small consulting and solar panel installation company that has been providing its services in Ithaca, New York, since 1999. During these years, the company has increased its revenues manifold. Despite having a small team and operational area, the company’s revenues are due to exceed $1.5 million. The company takes care of the whole solar installation process; however, its services cost a lot compared to other providers. 

The company works with homeowners, small businesses, agricultural endeavors, nonprofits, municipalities, and renters, creating a strong bond with its customers through quality services. The company has rarely received customer reviews. Apart from testimonials on its website, it has only four reviews with a five-star rating and no complaints.

Installation Process and Cost

Fingerlakes Costs

The company claims to provide reasonable customer-friendly prices; however, there are not enough customer reviews to verify it. The company claims that it is not compromising on quality, while at the same time, it aims to consider the financial status of its customers. 

With over twenty years of experience, the company has well-qualified and trained staff who can make the solar energy transition easy and valuable. The company also offers financing support for customers struggling to pay the upfront costs. Their solar panels are also qualified for federal tax credits.


Fingerlakes Legitimacy

Fingerlakes is a legitimate company working under state laws. 

  • The company is established and licensed under the laws of New York. 
  • The company is certified by NABCEP.
  • The company is transparent about its contact details, providing its location, email address, phone number, and social media links on its website.
  • Our expert view shows that the company lacks the credentials to be recommended. The company has received only four customer reviews, and it does not have accreditation from any credible rating agency.


Fingerlakes Maintenance

The company claims to provide high-level maintenance services not only to its own products but also to its competitors. Given the contact information on its website, the company seems to be easy to contact. It claims that its staff is highly efficient and works around the clock to make the customer’s work easy. At this point, we cannot judge the company’s work due to a lack of customer feedback, and the company has not received any complaints yet. 

The company provides quotes and comprehensive warranties to its customers, which it promises to follow.
