Central Vermont Solar & Wind ( CVSolar) is Rutland's oldest Solar Installation Company.  We design, sell, and install grid-tied net metered systems with and without battery backup and also off-grid for remote homes and other remote power needs. We sell only the highest quality SolarWorld Photovoltaic (PV) Panels made in USA.  Our focus is on residential installations.

Located at 104 River Street in the City of Rutland, CV Solar started in N. Chittenden in 1996 and then in 1999 moved to 213 North Main.  We rapidly outgrew this location and moved to 231 S. Main.  Finally, in 2005 we moved to our current location with offices for meeting with customers and a workshop and warehouse space.

When we started, there were only about 9 other solar PV installers in all of Vermont, We traveled all over the state installing over 400 PV systems and thousands of solar panels, Originally most of our work was off-grid but now we install an even mix of off-grid and grid-tied systems, both direct and battery backup.

We have solar installations in Rutland, West Rutland, Mendon, Shrewsbury, N.Clarendon, Killington, Randolph,Granville, VT, Rochester, Mt Holly, Cavendish, West Haven, Benson, FairHaven, Sudbury, Orwell, Ripton, Lincoln, E Middlebury, Leicester, Shoreham, Hubbardton, and dozens of other towns all over the state.

Our years of experience have proven that the Vermont sun intensity and availability allows for solar power to be a viable, cost effective, clean and enjoyable source of energy. A comment from a recent grid tie customer:
