Why Choose SUNation

After many years of working diligently as an electrician and electrical contractor, Scott Maskin and co-founder Mike Bailis ventured into what was then uncharted territory.  From day one, their goal was to give customers the very best product, workmanship and service possible.  Both owners are seen every day working to maintain their incredibly high standards.  To this day, Scott calls every customer to welcome them to the SUNation Family and to let them know to call him if they have any questions or concerns with their projects.  It is this hands-on approach that has made SUNation so successful.

  1. We sell you our solar systems, so you reap the benefits of available tax credits, rebates and special programs. The result is Zero Out Of Pocket (ZOOP) cost to you, as well as a host of other benefits not found unless you own your system.
  2. Our only installation is yours. That’s how we treat our customers and their homes – and it shows in our over 70% referral rate.
  3. We use our own 100% experienced, trained solar experts (some with 10+ years of experience) – not subcontractors – to perform your installation, and protect your home.
  4. We never hit you with hidden fees or charges — we believe in total transparency.
  5. SUNation only uses the best, most-energy efficient, most durable solar products from the finest manufacturers in the world like SunPower, LG, and Panasonic. Unlike Big Solar companies’ 10-year guarantee, our panels carry a 25-year guarantee, often outlasting the roof itself.
