Welcome to our new website!

Since first opening our doors in 2015 we have completed over 600 solar projects in Brooklyn and have had thousands of conversations with local homeowners. Needless to say, we’ve learned an enormous amount through these experiences and exchanges along the way. In conceptualizing the design and content of this site, making sure that this hard earned knowledge was reflected and shared back for the benefit of our future customers was our top priority. We think we’ve succeeded and we hope you agree.

As you’ve probably already discovered the site is packed with many useful resources and tools for the NYC solar seeker. One feature that we’re particularly excited to share is our new solar options gallery located right on our home page. What distinguishes BSW from all other solar providers in the region is our expertise in making solar possible for different types of urban properties (and challenges) that are common to our borough. The gallery provides easy to understand profiles of six of our most common installation types, each tailored for different categories of customer need. We also think that customers will find helpful our Anatomy of a Solar System page, which offers a visual guide to Brooklyn solar systems and their main components. 

We would like to give a huge shoutout to our amazing site developer Bushwick Design for helping us completely overhaul our web presence with this site. Efficient, responsive and full of creativity, we couldn’t have asked for a better collaborator in this young and fellow Brooklyn based company. 

Please explore, learn and enjoy. As with everything we do at BSW, we welcome any suggestions and ideas that would improve the site further and make it more valuable to you as you explore solar opportunities for your home or business. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and share any feedback you have.

Shine on,

T.R. Ludwig, CEO and Founder
