The BlueSel Commercial Solar Difference
Serving Business in Massachusetts & Rhode Island
At BlueSel Solar Customer Satisfaction Drives Our Growth
Established in 2008, our sister company BlueSel Home Solar was the first SunPower Master Dealer authorized in Massachusetts.
BlueSel was founded in 2008 by owners who early on saw the potential for solar power to save money and benefit the environment.
Since that beginning, BlueSel Solar has installed more than 550 residential and commercial solar energy systems rated at over 5.5 MW of capacity.
To continue as a successful and growing company, the founders have brought experienced and knowledgeable professionals on board.
The BlueSel Commercial Approach to Solar
