These days, homeowners in central New York and the Adirondack region have several choices when it comes to solar installers. Why should you choose Downstream Construction to put solar on your home?
We do things differently, and here’s how:
Excellence in Quality
With a broad array of skills including customer service, engineering, and construction, Downstream is committed to providing our customers with an experience second to none. This experience is bolstered by incorporating care and intention into every detail from the sales process to design to installation and for many years spent monitoring the system beyond completion. It is with this commitment that we are able to protect our customer’s investment for 25-30+ years to come.
In the end, Downstream believes in building a better more efficient world so that we can preserve the things that matter most; relationships, the environment, and an economy that supports us all.

Reducing Your Electrical Needs
With our experience in performance construction, we approach each project holistically. The lowest hanging fruit in energy consumption is to first lower your usage. Downstream is here to help provide information and services to bring this reality to fruition. Below are a few of the things we consider when walking into your home:
- Heating sources
- Windows and doors
- Air sealing
In the end, we can help you reduce your electricity needs, lower your monthly expenses, and size a solar system to provide just what you need. It’s not in our interest to provide the maximum system size but to give you exactly what you need even if it takes extra time and effort to meet at that point.
Cheaper, Cleaner Power
With a large degree of effort placed on operational efficiency we are not only able to deliver systems of high quality within a reasonable time-frame but at a very competitive cost. By analyzing the successes and failures of each completed job we continually hone our expertise which further enables us to pass down savings.
But we don’t stop there. All of our home solar systems have the ability to be monitored through the internet whether on your phone or on your computer. This technology allows you to observe your production from near and afar, at your convenience. Beyond this, web monitoring also allows Downstream the ability to monitor the system for any issues that may develop through the years.
Affordable Accessible Financing
Although many of our customers choose to self finance or cash purchase their solar systems, there are some that do not wish to or are unable. Fortunately, beyond the available incentives, there are several ways to remove those barriers:
- Tax Credit Bridge Loan – A no interest, 12 to 18 month loan due upon receiving your tax credits.
- Smart Energy Loan – An income dependent, 5, 10, or 15 year low interest loan available through NYSERDA.
- On-Bill Recovery Loan – Financing that is affordable AND simple by incorporating the Smart Energy Loan payments through your utility bill.
We’re here to help you take advantage of all the incentives and financing available through NYSERDA.
