About GetSolar.com

We are excited you're here! Our mission is to make clean energy the norm, not the alternative.

GetSolar has been helping homeowners and businesses across America make the smart switch to solar power since 2007. With humble beginnings in a cramped office near MIT University, we’ve grown to become a leading resource for objective solar advice and competitive proposals from a trusted network of solar installers. We have recently formalized a Strategic Partnership with EnergySage and are using their highly rated Solar Quote Engine for real-time competitive quotes from multiple installers.

We believe in the importance of an informed buyer and price transparency; we work tirelessly so you can be swift and confident in your solar purchase decision. Your feedback is an essential part of our growth -- so please let us know how we are doing.
