One of the most important steps to a successful solar energy system is finding the right contractor you can trust to do the job right. Below are resources and tips to point you in the right direction for selecting your contractor.
Check contractor recommendations online
Finding a good contractor requires references. As a starting point, you can go to a number of websites for help:
Get at least three references from each bidder and be sure to call or visit each reference.
Confirm the contractor carries worker's compensation and liability insurance policies.
Verify that the contractor understands Hartford Utility's electrical distribution system interconnection requirements.
Get all project expectations in writing including the solar system’s expected annual output.
Ensure that the contractor obtains a local building permit.
Make sure Hartford Utilities approves the solar PV system for interconnection to our electrical distribution system before you sign off on the project.
Please note that Hartford Utilities does not endorse any contractors or warrant any workmanship, installation, labor, cost or materials of any contractor. If you have questions, please contact us at 262-670-3700 or email us, we are here to help.
