See what our customers have to say!
A note of thanks for making our photovoltaic installation a very pleasurable experience. From our initial contact through the commission of the system, BPVS staff has been nothing but professional and friendly. Every phone conversation with you Chris, as well as Brian and Becca and all interactions with the installers, Brian, Adam, Donnie, Ben & Don were cordial and free of stress. All our questions (and there were plenty of them) were answered knowledgeably and to our satisfaction. Where options were available, our wishes were accommodated to the fullest extent. The quality workmanship led to a neat, clean (even attractive) installation.
Thanks also to BPVS for handling all the complexities the installation of the system entails including permits, applications and all things mechanical, and electrical. A special thanks for making the daunting application process through MTC for the Commonwealth Solar rebate seamless.
Thanks Chris for the generous loan of the watt meter which enabled us to get a handle on the electrical usage of our appliances. It was very helpful and illuminating. We discovered that our dishwasher uses 1 kwh more per use on the heavy wash pots and pans cycle than on the normal wash cycle. Definitely worth washing those pots by hand. We have always been energy conscious but it sure feels good to be doing more for the environment.
Once again thanks to all of you for your professionalism and quality workmanship. Your politeness and general attitude made it seem as if friends were doing the installation. You were all much appreciated. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
With Sincere thanks,
Terry & Linda Kellogg
P.S. Great first day to learn about the system: clouds and sun alternating!!
Dear Chris, Hannah, Hunter + Team,
Thank you so much for taking care of our solar reinstallation. Your team was just the best from initial consultation to the end. We appreciate your excellent communication through our “saga”.

I really enjoyed working with all four of you. Your professionalism and efficiency was only exceeded by your friendliness and your personal commitments to our project. Just the fact that everyone knew exactly who we were and what was up with our project any time I called. Try getting that from some big corporate power company.
You guys are the best!

The excellent quality of the workmanship was commented on by both the wire and building inspectors.
I selected BPVS for my PV system installation due to their professionalism, experience, individual attention and competitive pricing. I was especially impressed by BPVS’ expertise not only with PV installations, but also with the assistance the company gave me in completing all necessary permitting and rebate forms. I have recommended BPVS to several interested parties and will continue to do so with the highest recommendations.
I chose BPVS because they were highly recommended to for their expertise, quality equipment, and service. I was worried about having all the necessary information for the system sizing and applying for state rebates. They did it all for me…..it was surprisingly easy!
BPVS came very highly recommended by a Boston area pioneer in PV. I found their integrity, expertise and accountability invaluable. I also liked the fact that BPVS did all the work themselves, not subcontracting any part of the job. I am very enthusiastic about the process of working with BPVS. They are a pleasure to work with, efficient and personable, and they surprised me with the ease of all the applications.
We selected BPVS because we had spoken to many other happy BPVS customers in our local area. Knowing that BPVS had done work for other farms was also important to us. BPVS was a tremendous resource as we applied for agricultural grants. We were impressed with the professionalism, expertise, attention to detail and kind manner of BPVS owner, Chris Kilfoyle. We also appreciate all the advocacy and educational work that Chris Kilfoyle and BPVS does on behalf of renewable energy. We are pleased to report that our PV system is working well and has exceeded our expectations!
BPVS designed and installed an off-grid PV system for my home back in the 1980s. Since then, the service and follow-up have always been top notch, with BPVS only a phone call away. In addition, BPVS has provided technical assistance as well as access to products and services to keep my system going. I have been living off-grid for almost 25 years now and BPVS has been an essential part of making that experience a successful one. After all this time I am now contemplating upgrading my system and looking forward to working with BPVS again.
Chris Killfoyle brings a depth of experience to solar installation. He has a strong science background and is broadly involved in developing alternative energy policy in the state. He and his team’s attention to detail was meticulous, carefully adapting this commercial installation to a unique older barn, while closely asisting us with a complex set of federal and state funding applications. The installation was completed on schedule and BPVS was supportive and patient with the funding process. We strongly recommend BPVS with high regards.
We recently crossed our 1 year anniversary with the new solar system, and it looks like production during our inaugural year was about 6,650 kwH.
We continue to be pleased with how everything worked out.
Thanks to you and to the rest of the staff of BPVS for the great job you did installing this system. I guess you might be thankful that you didn’t install it this winter!
Feel free to use us as a reference as you negotiate current projects. We would be happy to provide your potential customers with a hearty recommendation.
Indian Line Farm
It has long been our dream to own a house that takes advantage of both passive and active solar power. Thank you, BPVS, for bringing our active solar to life. You’ve made the entire process painless, from specing it out, to dealing with all the regulatory paperwork, to coordinating well with our building contractor, to installing the system with careful attention to detail. We are most appreciative.
