Solar Tech is a private company that specialises in solar-powered equipment. It is based in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and has been operating for over 30 years. They have 6 employee profiles on their website but employ over 100 people across all sites, and their projected yearly revenue is around $24 million. They are famed for being the first company to use solar technology to power electric road signs.

Solar Tech is unique in that it caters to a specific niche over residential or commercial clients. They focus on providing equipment suitable for road and highway construction such as message boards. They appear to have a high success rate judging by their profits, but it is hard to gauge how satisfied their customers are due to lack of reviews.

Installation Costs and Process

Solar Tech Costs

Solar Tech don’t advertise the cost of equipment purchase on their website. They redirect their clients to an online form, where they take the information and match them with the appropriate representative to get in touch about pricing. The majority of their clients appear to be construction businesses or businesses looking to be vendors of their products.

There is no information on whether a payment plan is available, and the few reviews there are don’t mention anything about the price.


Solar Tech Legitimacy

Solar Tech is a registered company in Pennsylvania and shows a fair amount of legitimacy, as shown by the following credentials:

They have an ISO Certification allowing them to develop products through an internal quality management system and got the next level ISO 2015:9001 Certification in 2016.

They pride themselves on their 30-year experience and worldwide customer base.

They have reliability listed as one of their strongest attributes on their website.

They have some transparency as they are open about what they offer and their business attitude, but they don’t list any financial information on their website.

The few client reviews found on the review database appear as testimonials on their own website. 

As of June 2022, they are not BBB accredited.


Solar Tech Maintenance

Solar Tech ensure that clients can easily contact them by putting their contact details in a prominent position on their website. This is good, as there are very few customer reviews so any potential client would need to contact them directly to find out about scheduling, flexibility, and finance options. Client opinion on whether they received value for money is unknown. They have a 5-year warranty on all solar products.



In summary, Solar Tech are a fairly legitimate company that is ideal for clients who wish to buy quality solar-powered equipment to use during road construction. They are unique in the market with their ability to manufacture their own products. It is easy for clients to contact them, and they provide information about the products and company on their website.
