Belmont Solar is a full-service solar panel installer in south-central Pennsylvania. Since 2001, we’ve been helping homeowners and small business owners enjoy the freely-available energy from the sun. We specialize in installing off-grid, hybrid, and grid-tied solar systems, each custom-designed for your location and needs.
Our experience with solar energy grew out of our strong passion for electrical technology. We saw the innovations happening within the solar industry, and we knew these improvements could help our neighbors get clean, cheap energy. Now we want to bring these advantages to your home or farm with a new solar system.
Our team of installers are certified by NABCEP, the governing accreditation organization for solar companies. For this certificate, we’ve taken over 58 of advanced training and passed a rigorous examination. We’ve also gained experience the hard way: by installing hundreds of solar panel systems.
We will bring these years of experience to your system, so that your system runs at optimal performance. We’ll also take time to educate you on your new system, answering any questions you have and helping you better understand the effectiveness of solar. On every installation, we make sure you are satisfied with your system and our service.
