We had Ecohouse Solar install a 14kw system a few months ago. They were very knowledgeable through every step of the process, and answered all of my questions in detail. I wanted a clean look to the system, and their install team made every effort to make the final appearance of the system as discreet as possible with no external conduit visible. I would definitely recommend this team to anyone considering solar for their home.
Ecohouse Solar installed our 8.4 kW system in July of 2022 which included a new electrical service panel. Mike Hopper was excellent to work with and answered all of our (many) questions. He helped us design the best system with the right panels for us, at a great price. After signing the contract, Mike continued to keep us informed of all activities. Both the local and utility permitting/inspections were handled with little to no effort from us. All the installers and electricians were courteous and professional. They worked quickly without disrupting the yard or interior of the house.
I would gladly recommend Ecohouse for anyone considering solar.
We are customers of a defunct solar company and were having issues with our inverter. EcoHouse was great and immediately took action to call the company and get it fixed. Jeffrey was a great representative of the company and did great work to get us back up and running. I highly recommend using them and will call in the future if we find ourselves in need again.
Ecohouse recently completed the installation of a 8.4 kw/h system on our roof. I have never given a contractor a 5 star review but in this case I am happy to do so for the first time. From beginning to end this process was fantastic. Mike Hopper was completely honest and transparent from the first moment and communicated with us every step of the way. Everything happened exactly when we were told they would happen (which I consider a miracle) and the team doing the installation was awesome. If I ever expand my system Eco House will be my only call.

Calculate How Many Solar Panels You Need For Your Home
Our solar project calculator gives customized results based on your electric bill, solar panel production, solar array size and electric rates to show you a solar array that will meet your household needs.
Your monthly electric bill. Our tool takes your monthly electric bill in dollars, and divides it by the current average price for electricity, to get the number of kilowatt-hours of electricity you need each month.
The production of a solar panel. In our region, 1kw of solar panel array will produce roughly 1,200 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year. The average size of a solar panel in 2022 is 370 watts. If you have a $120/month electric bill and live in Central Ohio, where the average rate for electricity is $0.15 per kilowatt-hour. 120/0.15 = 800 * 12 = 9600 kilowatt-hours needed each year. 9600 kWh / 1,200kWh/yr = 8kw solar array.
Technical sizing of a solar panels. To translate the example above of 8kw of solar into an installable solar array, our tool does some rounding based on actual solar panel systems. We use pricing pulled from average system sizes installed over the last year. Your actual results may vary. For example, if your roof is not ideally oriented, or you have shade trees in the yard, that will reduce a solar panel’s performance. Using our experience and past years’ install data, we know that 8kw solar array will be made up of roughly 22 solar panels (if your home or business offers an ideal location for solar panels).
Your location. Our calculator is designed to give you customized results based on the specific electricity rates in Central Ohio.
