We are a NABCEP certified installer and are a participating commercial/industrial contractor for NYSERDA in New York.

GEM Energy’s process focuses on a best-in-class, automated installation system to produce the lowest cost solar solutions for customers in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, New York, and multiple other states east of the Mississippi. Customers range from utilities, municipalities, commercial businesses, and manufacturing to higher education. By selecting well-integrated technologies, we design a specific, optimal solution based on the electrical usage and demand capacity of your specific business.
Significant energy savings with no or low upfront capital
With solar, your business, university or municipality can achieve significant savings on electricity costs over the life of your system. Typical project payback is 5-10 years and after-tax returns for solar can be 15-25 percent. Let us show you how a lease or solar power purchase agreement (PPA) can reduce your total cost of operations with little or no out-of-pocket capital.
