Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

At ARiES Solar , we encourage clients to “Evaluate, Reduce, Produce.”  We think the key to sustainable development is to do those things in that order.  We like to take the time to evaluate the energy needs of our clients and help them to reduce their demand as much as possible through simple retrofits and increasing energy consciousness before moving on to energy production. With every project that comes our way, we also consider the Three E’s: energy independence, economic development and environmental stewardship.  If the project doesn’t help to contribute to all three of these E’s, we’re not going to encourage...

Customer and Partner Recommendations

We have the great fortune to work with amazing clients on some really interesting and meaningful projects.  Browse through our customer recommendations to see what our clients have to say about us!   Paul B. Blanch, Builder and Homeowner “I built my own home and acted as a general contractor for those tasks I could not do own my own; so, I’ve had extensive experience with all sorts of different types of workers. The folks at ARiES, and their installers, were absolutely the most professional, knowledgeable, and courteous group I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. My solar system is running perfectly and has met or exceeded all of my expectations. When I upgrade my system to include battery back-up, you can be sure I’ll depend on ARiES to do the work.”   Wayne Wykoff, Partner, Sexton and Wykoff “Aries Energy and Harvey and his staff have allowed my company to put a 50KW system on our roof with flawless execution from the beginning of the idea up and until after the installation.  They come and check to make sure we are going well and I suspect that this great service will continue indefinitely. The business side of the solar investment is unbeatable.  Assuming that the cost of energy does not go up, this system will pay for itself in 6.5 years.  What is not to like?  If you want a good sound investment and get the opportunity to deal with great people, call Harvey and the gang.”   Philip T. Hodge, 100 Aker Wood Morgans “Just a brief note thanking everyone at ARiES Solar for all your...
