New York State Energy Research & Development (NYSERDA) has been advancing energy solutions and working to protect the environment since 1975. In order to help New York homeowners during the solar research and purchase process, NYSERDA has developed a designation that recognizes solar installers who consistently meet high standards of quality — Quality Solar Installer.

Venture Solar exceeded the annual quality assurance criteria set by NYSERDA in 2018, and has won the title of 2019 NYSERDA Quality Solar Installer.

Alex Yackery, Co-Founder of SunPower by Venture Solar, commented: “We are a company that performs all of our installation and service work in house and we are meticulous about installation quality and treat every home we work on like is was our own. Homeowners considering solar have many factors to evaluate and until now, they haven’t had access to the data required to validate a potential provider’s track record of installation; NYSERDA has now changed that and we thank them for providing more transparency to homeowners considering solar.”
