On April 27th Cazeault Solar and Home of Gloucester, MA held a seminar which reviewed the workings and benefits of solar to Ms. Savannah LodgeScharff’s physics class at Hamilton Wenham High School. McKenzie Plante a senior honors student at Hamilton Wenham High School initiated the idea of inviting Cazeault Solar and Home to come to the school, as the Students are working on a project of creating a totally Sustainable home or building. She floated the idea to Ms. LodgeScharff who contacted Cazeault and set up the agenda for the seminar. The session was extremely interactive as the Students in attendance had great questions and had some learnings which should benefit their presentations due in early May. Great time – Way to Go Hamilton Wenham High School and Ms. Savannah LodgeScharff!!
“We had Cazeault install solar on our home about 2 years ago, a job which included having the roof replaced. Tim and Mark were very professional, knowledgeable and helpful, and we have been delighted with the installation and having solar panels on our roof. We have barely seen an electric bill and would recommend Cazeault to anyone. Top shelf professionals!”
Sash L. – Gloucester, MA
“Going on 1.5 years since Cazeault successfully replaced my roof and installed 9.8kW of solar. It was terrific to have one company do both jobs and help us navigate our way thru the tax credit and SREC process. Mark Roberts, in particular, from the beginning offered no pressure sales and was easy to work with. Even today he’s willing to stop by if we temporarily lose the internet signal to our system. I highly recommend Mark and Cazeault!”
Adam B. – Sherborn, MA
“I quickly decided to hire them and they told me their schedule and everything went perfectly. I didn’t have to lift a finger. Cazeault worked effectively with the town I live in and they provided all the paperwork for rebates and tax work. I now get to watch how much power is produced by my solar panels (hourly, daily, monthly) on a handy website that I can access anytime. The Cazeault team works together efficiently and knowledgeably.

“We had been looking at investing in solar for some time. Since our business is working in and on the environment, we thought it was the right thing to do for the environment. Plus the return on the investment is incredible! We chose Cazeault Solar and Home to partner with as they were a local company with a very solid reputation. It was a great match for us. I even had Cazeault Solar put solar on my home!”
– Joe Pallazola, co-owner of Pallazola Brothers.
“Not only will the solar system provide energy to their business but the excess is being sent to their homes. We had fun celebrating their investment together as they are our 150th Cape Ann client and our 15th Commercial client on Cape Ann.”

“I had my solar system installed on 12/28/2016. From Start to finish the process and install went very smooth. From the initial meeting to the information binder I received with all the numbers crunched in it, to the install with the electricians and panel installers everything was outstanding. The inspectors and electric company came out in no time and my system was up and running. I am extremely happy that I chose to go local with Cazeault Solar and Home. Solar in general is a no-brainer with a quick ROI with all the great federal and state rebates and energy credits you get. Give Cazeault a call and give them the opportunity to give you a quote and show you the numbers!”
Pete C – Gloucester, MA
“Cazeault Solar and Home did a fantastic job from start to finish. They were patient and informative pertaining to any questions we might have had from customization of our project to scheduling of their contractors. They were very accommodating to our personal schedules during the installation and final phases of the solar project. Matter of fact, I was so impressed with Cazeault Solar and Home that six months after completion, I became an employee!! Great people, great follow through and fantastic service all around.”
Ted T – Gloucester, MA
“Couldn’t imagine a better experience than what we had with Cazeault Solar and Home. They guided us through every step with patience, honesty and knowledge. The installation was expertly coordinated and neatly done and our system is performing better than expected. No snake-oil here. Call them you will not regret it.”
Steve B – Gloucester, MA
“Why look any further when you have Cazeault Sola available?! The process was smooth from start to finish. The installation was clean and quick” they took all the precautions in making sure that the surroundings were protected. They were available on many occasions to answer questions and to be there making sure everything went smoothly. I wish we had more property to put solar on! We have not had an electric bill in 3 months. SOLAR IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO!!! Thanks to Cazeault Solar and Home!!! Let the sun shine!”
Marcy P – Gloucester, MA
“We felt so much confidence in dealing with Cazeault Solar and Home when we decided to go solar for our home. We in fact, really enjoyed working with Tim, one of the owners, not only because of his years of knowledge but also because of his very apparent business acumen and integrity. It was reassuring knowing that we were getting honest and clear information from him and his employees. Our panels are firing on all cylinders, we are so happy we decided to go solar and to do so with Cazeault. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough!”

The Plantes: Our 100th Solar Installation!
To all hands at Cazeault Solar and Home:
A job well done on my new roof. Your team worked hard. The men on the roof worked almost 12 hours to complete the job. It is refreshing to have work done when promised, as promised at the price quoted. Also as a guy that has worked in the City of Gloucester for so many years it was exceptionally nice to bring my payment for the job two blocks over to Grove street. Local companies are the best!
Joseph and Deborah Aiello
P.S. Your crew even managed to put my wife flowers and bird baths back in their proper place.. Something I never seemed to be successful at.

Sash Ludwig and Craig Dulong just celebrated their one year anniversary with their solar system. Below are their reflections:
We already knew we wanted the system but it was his integrity, transparency, enthusiasm and knowledge that convinced us to go with Tim and Cazeault. It was the best decision we could have made because not only has he continued to service us and our system but we have become friends and I want to introduce him to as many people as possible to get more solar systems going on Cape Ann. It is where we need to be!
– Sash Ludwig and Craig Dulong
We have had problems with contractors in the past; poor workmanship, not returning calls, not returning calls in a timely manner, taking 6 months to correct problems and use of poor quality materials to name a few. I will say, Cazeault Solar was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. The process was completely explained, Tim stopped by the house on several occasions keeping us updated on “next steps”. The installation crew was friendly and informative, explaining their part in the process; the job site was kept neat and orderly at all times. To put it simply: The panels are on the roof, the sun is out and the meter is spinning backwards…Life is Good!!
– Dianne & Bob Francis
Tim was great with letting us know the timeline of the project step by step. Tim did a very good job and was very easy to deal with. I give him an A+.
- Matt Nicastro
The whole experience of installing a solar panel system on our home has been just incredible! Learning about how the system works along with all the benefits that go with it has been a real eye opener. Everyone we dealt with has been great, Tim, Mark, Justin, the whole crew has been helpful, communicative, and clearly very professional from beginning to end. And National Grid was even timely in the installation of the new meter! Thank you for designing, installing, and activating a system that will be producing electricity for many years to come!
Many thanks and kindest regards
- Brian and Patti Pike
We are very pleased with the install time-line, the service, and expertise of the technicians, the electrician team, and the solar engineer. The panels look really good on our roof and the installation was expert. There are no exposed hardware or wires to mar the look of the panels on our roof, which was a concern when we were first considering solar.
Our Cazeault liaison, Tim Sanborn, kept us informed of every step along the way, so there were no surprises. He was always available for questions and he was patient with our requests, and was always professional. His expertise instilled trust in him and we recommend Cazeault Solar and Home to those who are looking to make the transition to solar.
Our first electric bill since the installation shows that we went from 26 kWh per day to about .33 kWh per day and that was only for 10 days of solar harvesting on the December 2015 utility bill. Imagine what it will be once we see a full month of solar on the next bill from our utility provider!
We are looking forward to spring - when the sun's power really starts to ramp up our production. We are also looking forward to our SREC quarterly payments for all the extra power we expect to produce in the coming months. Going forward, our electric bill from the utility will be negligible, we get 30% federal tax rebate on the installation, the $1000 MA state rebate, along with the payment for our power output that goes to the grid.
One of the best parts of making this conversion is that we have reduced our carbon footprint to a shadow of it's former self! Next up will be an electric car and electric storage panels so we can be even more self-sufficient.
Thanks for working with us to make the move to solar,
– Warren and Darcy Dale

Paul Butman, local businessman and property owner on Cape Ann has made an investment of solar energy on his property on Pond Road, Gloucester. MA. This will be one of the largest solar installations on Cape Ann.
"I have looked at investing in Solar for some time. I look at the investment of Solar to be a solid investment turning my roof into a revenue source. Not only am I doing what is right for the environment, I am creating electricity savings and creating a revenue source. I chose to work with Tim Sanborn of Cazeault Solar and Steve Bianchi of Solect. Cazeault Solar gives me a local presence while his partnership with Solect brings great engineering and many investment options."
– Paul Butman
"Tim Sanborn and Cazeault Solar, backed by GAF, are by far the best choice for going solar. They start with a patient education process that informs the client''s decision making in a zero pressure and friendly way, beginning with the initial contact call. Tim answers his phone and returns calls promptly as do his team members. When you are talking with Tim, you get the whole company. This is a big advantage as we learned the hard way talking with several out of state companies masquerading as something they were not. Designing a custom system for a non conventional building presented challenges that the team, which graciously included us, solved through collaborative research. Cazeault also does huge commercial installations, but Tim always had time to give us his undivided attention. Cazeault, in addition to being a roofing company and therefore knowledgable about all things that pertain to roofs, has a huge solar knowledge base with information about site issues, panel quality, system sizes, orientation, permitting, rebates, tax questions, National Grid, SREC aggregators, and financing, at their fingertips. The installation was clean, good looking, and fast. The electrical connections were carefully designed to blend with the aesthetics of our beautiful home. Post installation, they still get back to us right away with answers to our questions. We had the feeling through the whole process that Tim was on OUR side and still is. We are pleased and excited to have a Cazeault State of the Art Solar System up and running, and making significant Kilo Watts of electricity even in the darkest days off December! We are SO glad we found Cazeault."
"Based on conversations with others and researching PV installations by a local company, I made a call to Cazeault on August 12, 2015. We set up a meeting, in our home, for August for August 28, 2015. Tim Sanborn and Mark Roberts (installation manager) explained that, with readings that Mark had made using a handheld device and after he inspected our roof from inside the attic, that they could install a 5400 watt field of 18 PV modules. I created an Excel sheet, using data from our initial meeting and my actual past usage, that showed I could expect a 40% reduction in my electric bill. Emails and another meeting produced a formal contract which boiled down to “We’ll do everything necessary to have you generating before November 2015.” I plugged the final numbers into by worksheet and with real costs, credits, and conservative estimates of generated electricity I was able to calculate my break even at 4 years. My wife and I signed the contract on September 3, 2015 with a finish promised by November 1, 2015.
With no additional costs (refreshing), we started generating on October 27, 2015 and have produced between 1 and 22 kWh every day since. This was in line with our expectations. Although the actual installation was completed in 3 days, there were several mandated reviews (handled by Cazeault) that took 4 – 5 weeks.
From the first meeting, through contracts, installation of the PV modules on the roof, electrical connections inside, and coordination with regulators and National Grid, we have been more than pleasantly surprised with how well ‘our’ Cazeault team had exceeded our expectations.
"I had my house solarized, great company, made everything so easy to deal with, Tim Sanborn is the best. Got my first Electric Bill last week. $1.32, I freaked, couldn't believe it!"
– Sam Cuomo
"We hit the jackpot with Cazeault Solar and Home! Their professionalism, hard work, and courtesy on-site were amazing. We expect good customer service---but this was to the moon. Tim, Mark and Justin were exceptional listeners throughout the entire process. We are ecstatic and couldn’t be happier with choosing a local company for our new roof and solar system.
– Mary Helen Landergren
"In any business, the quality of the product and service are equally as important. We have been so impressed with Tim Sanborn and Cazeault Solar and Home because the service was explained well up front with appropriate clarity and transparency, the product was delivered as stated with the quality that we expected and the service throughout the process was always prompt, professional, neat and within the stated budget. Mark Roberts, Solar Specialist, is also extremely knowledgeable and helpful- always there to answer questions as well as Joe Sanfillippo, electrician who installed the panels and explained exactly how the system worked. We interviewed several companies prior to choosing Cazeault and we knew we had picked the right one because the entire job was within the excellent standards we expected for the investment we made and the return we are receiving and will continue to receive for years to come."
– Sash Ludwig
"So my system is humming along nicely. I just got my first NGrid bill that totaled $0 due. I actually show a credit balance of -$0.56. Pretty cool. Love it."
– Steve Cefalo
"Again both Anne and I want to thank you and your team for helping make one of my long time "dreams" come to fruition with so much ease. Your company motto should be "We make your sunny days sunnier". Keep up the great work."
– Anne Rolland and Charles McGinn
"When I was looking to replace the roof on my house and invest in solar panels, Cazeault was a logical choice. Cazeault is an established name in roofing on Cape Cod. And, Cazeault Solar provided a solar array that was competitively priced while providing personalized and local service."
– Scott Kudron
"At first not knowing a lot about the solar process I would like to say that Tim's complete Cazeault team were extremely helpful in explaining the whole process from the roof through the solar connection. They excited my expectations and were very aware of the property and took extreme care of it. I am very glad that we chose an experience and local supplier for this rewarding addition to our home. I would highly recommend them if you are thinking about doing a roof or going solar."
– Lenny Kilman
"After interviewing several other solar companies, we were delighted to work with Tim Sanborn of Cazeault Solar. Tim is professional, reliable, and very knowledgable. The installation was completed quickly and efficiently and we know that we have begun to generate electricity that will significantly reduce our dependence on the local electric company while increasing the value of our home long into the future. Cazeault is local, has an excellent reputation and delivers their product expertly."
– Sash Ludwig, Craig Dulong
"The process was very painless and it was a pleasure doing business with Cazeault Solar and Home – I love watching my meter turn backwards"
