Philadelphia, PA Solar Installation

Philadelphia has made quite the commitment to encouraging solar energy. The goal for the city itself is to be using 20% of its energy from alternate sources by 2015. We commend their forward thinking about going solar.

Philadelphia is also helping guide its citizens in going solar. In August 2011, the City of Philadelphia hosted information sessions on its Solar Installation PV Guidebook. The information below will help you understand the guidebook.  After you have given it a look, please get in touch with us to discuss the options and ideas you have about a solar panel installation in Philadelphia or the surrounding area. We’re here to help you with all the details.

Here is some information you may find helpful:

There is also a video that explains how to use the Guidebook they have created about doing solar installations in Philadelphia.

Here is a link to the Guidebook. It has lots of helpful information, including what to consider before installing solar systems, who to call within the city, what to ask, what kind of permits are needed, and what kind of incentives there are for solar installations in Philadelphia.

We hope you will consider asking Bright Eye to be your solar energy installer in Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. Please contact us with any questions or comments. We’d enjoy hearing your thoughts and challenges.
