Founded in 1999, Quixotic Systems was established with the vision of making solar practical, affordable and accessible in New York City. Since then, Quixotic Systems has designed, engineered, and installed many of the most reliable and innovative solar systems in and around New York.
We are committed to providing the highest quality products and services in the solar industry. Quixotic has deep experience with the range of residential building types found in New York City and their particular challenges. We are experts at optimizing system design and are highly knowledgeable about residential roofs. As a Sunpower dealer, we are able to offer the highest-rated commercially available solar modules. This helps us maximize system size on space-constrained roofs.
In addition to our expertise in solar electric systems, Quixotic Systems is one of New York City’s leading designers and installers of solar thermal and hybrid systems. For buildings where solar electric is not feasible because of space constraints or insufficient sunlight, solar thermal is often an option for hot water and heating needs. In addition, where feasible, we can provide systems that offer the optimum combination of the two types of solar energy. We work with our clients to develop creative financing solutions for our systems, including zero-down financing options.
In 2013, Quixotic Systems was selected as one of the two companies for the first NYC community-based solar program, Solarize Brooklyn. We successfully designed and installed five solar projects under that program. Quixotic Systems also has extensive experience navigating the complex permit process for solar projects in New York City, which we believe gives us an advantage in speed to project completion.
Quixotic Systems’ engineers are top-notch professionals. Our senior PV and solar thermal engineers hold the highest professional certification, accreditation by the North American Board Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). They are also NYSERDA certified.
