valley news readers choice award

Norwich Solar Technologies was voted “Best Solar Company” in the 2017 Valley News Reader’s Choice Awards.


“The Unitarian Universalist Church of Concord, NH, is proud of its Norwich Solar Technologies 32kw ground-mounted solar array. It is also grateful to the people of Norwich Solar Technologies for their excellent work and for their patience and helpfulness in the course of the project which became much more complex than anticipated.

Norwich Solar people did more than build a solar array. To help the Church get the necessary variances from the Concord Zoning Board of Adjustment, they prepared a landscaping plan and participated in two ZBA hearings. Norwich staff identified the engineering firm needed to prepare the filings for the Concord Planning Board and participated in the Planning Board hearing. When the Church’s chosen electrician was unable to contract for the needed time period, Norwich staff identified an excellent replacement. Finally, Norwich staff prepared filings for the NH Public Utilities Commission and helped the Church complete the arrangements needed to receive Renewable Energy Credits.

Norwich staff responded flexibly to many of the changes in the installation schedule resulting from the City’s requirements and the winter weather. Throughout, Norwich people maintained regular and always helpful communications with the Church’s representatives and with contractors.”

– Lisa Eberhart, Chair, Board of Trustees Unitarian Universalist Church of Concord, New Hampshire


“Plainfield School completed a solar project with Norwich Solar Technologies in Fall 2017. The solar project was funded by a local NH investor and provides the school with discounted electricity at no upfront cost to the School. With other efficiency and heat pump upgrades led by the Facilities team, we have taken Plainfield School from one of the least energy-efficient schools in NH to a virtually net zero school (as of early 2018, we still have some propane heat in the gym). I found the NT folks to be unfailingly polite and able to anticipate concerns expressed by the school community about siting and appearance. The construction process went very smoothly, especially given that Norwich upgraded the school’s electrical entrance and transformer as part of the solar array project. I heartily recommend using NT for any size project you may be considering.”

– Bill Knight, Facilities Manager, Plainfield School


“Norwich Technologies provided and installed an 83 kW (DC) ground-mounted solar array for The Mountain School during the summer of 2015.  The site work was particularly difficult due to the steepness of grade at the installation site.  Terry, Troy, their employees, and sub-contractors were very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable.  I was very impressed with how everyone was able to work together and also work with members of the Mountain School staff.  Norwich Tech and their staff provided support through the application process with the Vermont Public Service Board, Green Mountain Power, and the Vermont State Electrical Inspectors office.  Troy is continuing to provide support to a third party company setting up a platform so our students can monitor our energy usage and solar production.  I would recommend Norwich Technologies no matter what the size of your project might be.”

– Rob Benson, Director of Facilities, Mountain School


“We had a very favorable experience working with Norwich Technologies on our solar PV system. The system was installed in November 2014 and has performed as anticipated. All of their employees were quite knowledgeable about the products they installed and promptly answered all of our questions during the site assessment and decision-making process. The workmanship is first rate and the customer service all along has been excellent. As a bonus, the Enphase software allows us to monitor our system’s production daily. Overall, we are very satisfied customers and recommend having Norwich Technologies come out to your home or business for a free site assessment.”

“I had the pleasure of working with the folks at Norwich Technologies to install my 100 kW solar array. I found them to be very knowledgeable on renewable energy technologies and all aspects of renewable energy incentives.  They enthusiastically provided excellent customer service.  They were efficient and timely during the install process and in the submission of incentive documentation. After the installation, they continued to monitor and strived to make sure my system was performing at peak production.  I would highly recommend using Norwich Technologies as your Solar Energy installer.”
