Go Solar Green NY Overview:

Go Solar Green NY is a solar consultation and installations company based in New York, USA. The company was established in 2008 and it operates in New York City, Nassau County, Westchester, Rockland County and Yonkers in the state of New York. Its headquarters is located at Queens, New York City.

The company works across a range of projects. They provide both low-cost and high-cost solar energy services for their clients. They showcase a wide variety of solar installations and services on their website.


Go Solar Green NY Services and Specifics:

Go Solar Green NY provides the following services;

Solar for Homes

This service is designed for residential purposes. It targets clients who wish to opt for renewable energy supply for their homes.

Solar for Businesses

This is popularly called commercial solar energy services in other solar energy companies. The solar designs and installations are typically built to serve and satisfy the needs of business owners and organizations.

Solar for Industry

Not many solar companies provide this service. Go Solar Green NY offers solar solutions to large industries in remote areas or off-grid locations. Clients can opt for any of the following installations;

  1. skid/ground mounted
  2. roof mounted
  3. pole mounted
  4. trailer mounted, or 
  5. assembled with industrial quality walk-in shelters for maximum protection and maintenance.

Green Roofs

They are also called living roofs or eco-roofs. A green roof is a special type of roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation which is planted over a flat or slightly-sloped waterproof membrane. Green roofs serve both aesthetic and environmental purposes and are mostly installed atop buildings in urban areas.

Standalone Solar Power Systems

Most solar energy systems in the United States are grid-tied. This implies that grid failure could mean solar failure. But Go Solar Green NY also offers standalone solar power systems, which would take a customer completely off the grid and can produce electricity even when the sun is unavailable.

Solar Thermal Production Systems

Go Solar Green NY also offers solar heating system services and installations, which could reduce the heating bill of a household by 50% to 80%. This service also includes solar water heating and solar pool heating.

LIPA Feed In Tariff

Go Solar Green NY’s website also promotes a partnership with Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) which offers a special service called the LIPA Feed In Tariff. With this service, building owners can lease their unused roof space to solar projects developers and get paid at a feed-in tariff rate.

Based on reviews from the company’s website, customers expressed much satisfaction on their residential solar services. But the website’s portfolio of finished works does not reflect the positive reviews found on the website.


Solar Panels and Services offered by Go Solar Green NY:

Go Solar Green NY uses SunPower Maxeon solar panels and equipment supplied by SunPower Corporation.

SunPower Maxeon solar panels are credited as the most energy-efficient solar panels in the world with an efficiency of about 22.8%.


Installation costs and process:


Go Solar Green NY’s pricing, like that of most solar companies, varies according to the electricity needs of the customers/clients.

On the website, the company offers their services with no down payment necessary, but based on reviews from other databases, customers say that they do make deposits before installation services.

Also, customer reviews from external databases have expressed heavy dissatisfaction with Go Solar Green NY’s services after making down payments. Some have gone as far as filing complaints of fraud with regulatory organizations.

Customers have also expressed dissatisfaction about the poor quality of service during consultations.


  1. Go Solar Green NY’s website says the company is licensed in New York City, Nassau County, Westchester, Rockland County and Yonkers, in New York state, USA. Apparently they also operate in Africa but there is no indication of being licensed to work in any African country on the website.
  2. On the website, Go Solar Green NY promotes a partnership with SunPower Corporation as their supplier of solar panels and equipment, and with Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) as a provider of the LIPA Feed In Tariff service.
  3. The company’s contact details are publicly available. They include their physical address, email address, phone number and operating hours.
  4. The company’s Board of Directors/Leadership team is not listed officially on their website.

Previous customers have also pointed out a lack of knowledge and expertise required to run solar maintenance service by the maintenance crew.

A great big THANK YOU…
A great big THANK YOU to Bob and the folks at Go Solar WNY! I was looking for someone to help restore my solar panel system after I lost part of the barn roof and 20 solar panels in a straight- line wind event last Spring. I called several companies but no one called me back. Then I found Bob. He and his crew came out to assess the situation then, six weeks later, they came to ensure it was safe to hook up the remaining 24 panels on the opposite side of the roof so I at least had a partial system up and running. When scheduling permitted, he was back to hook up the rest of the solar panels - a full 4-5 months BEFORE he had planned on doing so. As I found, solar companies want to install systems but servicing them is a different story. I was so fortunate to find Bob Timkey! He is someone who will go the extra mile to ensure folks have solar panel systems that work. If you are need of a solar system, Bob Timkey is the guy to call.

From start to finish Bob…
From start to finish Bob was amazing, he was thorough and detail when walking us through the process of determining needs, payment methods, and timeline. He kept in regular communication and updated us on the various process steps. We choose to use financing and Bob if provided guidance and assistance with that as well. Throughout the entire process he was friendly and courteous and never made myself or my wife feel any pressure. On installation day his crew did an amazing job. If I could give him and his team 20 stars I would.
