16+ Years of Experience
Simply put, we’ve been doing solar since long before solar was cool! With over 16 years of experience installing and maintaining solar energy systems, you can rest easy knowing your home’s solar panels are in good hands.
As a local, family-owned business, we know the unique needs of solar energy systems on Long Island and throughout the greater New York area better than anyone. We install to hurricane-specific guidelines, understand how to navigate local permitting processes and can help you maximize any available incentives or subsidies from New York State as well as the Federal Government.
Solar Dad and Sons ranked 310 of the top 500 nationwide solar contractors. The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets. The list was released on July 25, 2017.
We stand behind our alternative energy systems with a ten-year warranty on all parts and labor.

We Give Back
Community is essential to the success of local, family-owned businesses like Solar Dad and Sons and giving back is deeply ingrained in our company’s culture. This includes large-scale projects, like donating a solar energy system to East Islip High School for hands-on education, to ongoing involvement with charities and non-profit organizations. For example, our founder Ken Sanger, is a Boy Scout leader with his Local Troop and incorporates solar technology in his camping trips—allowing Scouts to learn about renewable energy while charging their iPhones!
Ken also regularly plays “Stump the Solar Guy” with fifth to seventh graders at local schools, sharing insight on how renewable energy will affect the lives of young people.
