Review by Lisa Belval
From the very first contact to the very end of our solar installation, Nick Kirk was in constant contact with us. He drove 3 hours just to meet with us to present the quote and all of the information about the products used and time frame. Nick guided through all of the financial services available to us, including filing all of the paperwork and permits for us. When Nick, Jenna and Jesse did our install, they were polite, respectful, extremely efficient and professional. We are loving having only an $18.00 electric bill. Other companies may be larger but Downstream Construction is certainly more reliable, conscientious and professional than the other 2 companies we contacted. Thank you everyone at Downstream Construction.

“Nick and Jesse were both friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The finished product looks great, and their price was reasonable.” This is what I wrote before we had our family reunion for 5 days. I asked Nick for a proposal for our camp (which is 3/4 mile from public utilities). What he gave me was on the mark. The system he gave me was strong enough to power a refrigerator, 2 CPAP machines, fans, lights, and a mosquito magnet machine – all for 5 days. The batteries he set up powered what we needed overnight and the solar system he set up fully recharged the batteries during the day. I am very pleased that I had Nick put my system together.
Review by Raymond O’Brien
Downstream was great! They did the install in just over 2 days ! Very Happy with the System Downstream installed and they handled all the paperwork and dealing with the power company too! Between the grants and the tax deductions, this system comes in for around a dollar a Watt! Sunny days it produces almost 3 times the kWh that we use in a day! Even on cloudy days we make more electricity than we use! Our power meter is running backwards everyday! We use some of the surplus electricity to run our fully electric Ford Focus and Electric Zero Motorcycle. No Gas! This is the Future! Running on sunshine for Free! Love It! — The O’Briens.Five-star reviews of Downstream Construction from EnergySage:
Review by Richard Doell
My experience with Downstream Construction was excellent from the planning process right through construction and start up of the system. The thing that most impressed me was the pride that was taken in their work. I was walked through all the paper work and any questions I had were answered thoroughly. I would highly recommend Downstream for anyone interested in a solar installation.
Review by Joe Albanese
I chose Downstream Construction for my solar company for many reasons: 1. Very prompt in coming to my site for the solar survey! 2. The price was reasonable and so were the upgrades I ordered or Downstream included for free! 3. Very professional installation in a short period of time! 4. The only solar estimate company tat did construction also, so structural concerns could be addressed at the time of installation (ie. adding braces to roof beam that was cracked)! 5. Nick Kirk and team explained how the system worked and helped me with all the paperwork for tax deferment and tax rebates!
Review by Fran Malone
I had a small cabin built in the southern Adirondacks about 12 years ago. There is no power on my road so I installed an 11kw propane generator as my power source. It gave me all the power I needed but when I only wanted to turn a light on to read or make a cup of in the morning the generator was over kill and the noise from it ruined the peace and quiet of my Adirondack retreat. I found Downstream Construction on the NYSERDA website but I was concerned my project would be too small for them to bother with. I was wrong. Nick Kirk, their solar star, met with me within days and discussed my needs. Not only was he interested in my project but he talked me down when I suggested options that he said would be too big or expensive for my needs. His words were “I would not feel right selling you something you don’t need”. We struck a deal and Nick delivered as promised. I can now enjoy a quiet cup of coffee,read and even watch a football game on TV without the generator roaring in the background. I feel lucky that I found Downstream Construction.
Review by Ruth Norton
Downstream Construction designed and installed our solar electricity generation system in 2016. From first contact on, Nick and Justin were incredibly knowledgeable, able to communicate and patient. They and their crew were considerate and friendly; it was very comfortable to have them working on our property. It felt very comfortable to make such a substantial investment with Nick’s guidance and expertise. I’ve recommended them to all my neighbors and friends.

Review by Mary Failla in Woodgate, NY
Project: Repair Solar Panels For Electric System
Nick was very professional. He kept us informed as to what needed to be done. We live in SC and this work was done on our vacation home. Nick came in when we were not there to make the repairs so that when we arrived we would have power, as we only have solar power for electricity. He has offered to come in over the winter to make sure everything will continue to work. I highly recommend this company to anyone considering solar power for their home.

Project: Build a Custom Home
We were extremely pleased with the creative, detail oriented work Downstream Construction did in building our new house. They are easy to work with, very professional, trustworthy, stay on budget unless you choose otherwise, and they do beautiful work. They have the total package that other construction companies do not, blending personal construction skill, people skills, financial skills, management of their crew, and delivering the finished product as stated. We are so pleased with Downstream, that we have hired them back to build a barn.

Project: Build a Custom Home
The Downstream Construction team is knowledgeable and efficient. Their expertise, creativity and professionalism was refreshing. They were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process, from planning to the final touches. I would highly recommend them for any new construction or renovation project without reservation.
Review by Todd S. in West Leyden, NY
Project: Build a Custom Home
During the process of building two houses, I have hired numerous contractors. This company is by *far* the best I have hired. Their work is first-rate, and, just as importantly, their ability and willingness to communicate during the entire building process stands apart from all other contractors that I have hired. They had great ideas during the design stage. The construction process went smoothly and was finished on time. The final product was exceptional. I am happy to give them my strongest possible recommendation.
