Customer Testimonials

Jeff in Reading, Vermont

I had Eric look at my house for a heat exchange system. He came up with some great ideas for my situation. His ideas and price was why I chose Eric. The work was done on time, neatly done, and kept in touch on every step. I think Eric and Anya did a great job, and would recommend them. Thanks Eric and Anya FOR A GREAT JOB DONE!

Dan and Wendy in Putney, Vermont

We decided to upgrade our new home’s electrical and heating systems as part of a major remodeling project. We couldn’t be happier that we found Saxtons River Solar Electric. Because of Eric’s construction background, he was able to design and install solar panels and heat pumps that worked best for us in the larger context of our project. He, Anya, and Michele clearly take pride in their work, and they made sure we were happy with everything. We’ve been further impressed that they continue to be available whenever we have any questions about our solar panels or heat pumps. We would recommend this family-run business without hesitation.  2.2017

OK, I’ll start off by saying I like our new electric bills. (last month was $0.47) not bad. And this month was -$27.00. )  Now I can live with that.

It took a while for me to get my wife to come around to the idea of going solar. So after doing our research and talking to some local people we wanted to learn more about this.

We had three companies give us bids and after hearing all the ins and outs of what solar could do for us we decided to go with a company called Saxtons River Solar Electric. They answered all my questions let me watch what they were doing and even help (when an extra hand was needed). This company is “spot on”, great people to work with and fun to be around. I can’t say enough about the quality of their work and how well the system works for us. The solar system and heat pump they put in was the best investment we have made. (Just a note) we used less wood this last winter thanks in part to the heat pump.

In the summer of 2015, we interviewed several heating and cooling companies for the purpose of installing a “mini-split” wall unit for heating and air conditioning. Eric Shenholm impressed us with his knowledge and honesty. We proceeded to hire Eric to complete the installation.

May I assure the reader that we were extremely satisfied with the product and Mr. Shenholm’s professional installation, integrity, and efficiency. We highly recommend Eric.

Working with Eric and SRSE was a pleasure.  Eric is very knowledgeable, friendly and his workmanship is top quality. He is more than just a solar contractor he is a real proponent of alternative energy who is a true positive influence on the world. Thank you SRSE!!

Jerry and Kathy in Saxtons River, Vermont

At the end of the summer 2014, we did the numbers and decided a solar electric system would be financially beneficial for us. Eric Shenholm and Saxtons River Solar Electric made it happen successfully. They helped with the decision to construct a roof-top system and took care of the planning, preparation, installation and coordination with the local power utility. Our system was “commissioned” on December 30, 2014 despite cold weather and snow.

We continue to be happy with results and that led to our decision to ask Eric to help solve a heating/cooling problem in our oft-remodeled house. His company installed two small cold-climate heat pumps. Now our east and south corner upstairs master bedroom can be cooled to sleep-comfortable conditions during the hottest times of the year. And our “cool-all- year-round” basement living area can be warmed as needed so it is comfortably usable for us and guests. The heat pumps are a daily reminder of the quality work of Eric and his associates. When we see the consistently positive effects of the solar electric system on our monthly electric utility bill, we again appreciate the results of their work.

We recommend Saxtons River Solar Electric without reservation for these and similar projects.
