Entry Level Solar Technician




North Adams, MA

Since 1985, Berkshire Photovoltaic Services Inc. (BPVS) has pioneered off grid and on grid PV systems originally in an area stretching from Washington DC to the islands of Maine. We’re known for innovative solutions and hybrid designs which utilize battery storage so sites can go “off grid” when they are “on grid” or power dedicated loads. Now our new turn key design and install projects focus on the region surrounding the Berkshires of Massachusetts. We always service our own installations wherever they are and are often called on to diagnose and repair problem PV systems orphaned by others.

BPVS is fully licensed (MA HIC 131996) and insured for commercial, institutional and residential PV Systems.
