Founded in 1999, Quixotic Systems helped pioneer solar energy installations in New York City. We are known for our reliable, high-efficiency systems, and outstanding long-term customer service. The Quixotic team is certified by NYSERDA and NABCEP for both solar electric (PV) and solar thermal installations. We are a licensed New York City general contractor and an authorized SunPower dealer.
As solar continues to grow in NYC, many new companies enter the field. As one of the longest-established solar companies in the metropolitan area, we are one of the few with the versatility to design and install high-quality commercial and residential solar electric (PV) and solar thermal systems, building integrated PV systems, and solar canopies.
Building solar in NYC requires tenacity; we go the extra mile for our clients. Quixotic has recently developed a proprietary “watch dog” system to centrally monitor all of our installations across different platforms, as part of our service package. Clients are notified immediately in the event of a malfunction, and a technician rectifies the problem.
Across all of our diverse product offerings, we tailor the system to the building or homeowner’s specific needs. Our common denominator, whether PV modules or solar hot water collectors, is to use the best-rated products in the industry.

My name is Robert and I am the Treasurer of a 10 unit Co-Op in Brooklyn. Back in 2009 our building decided to invest in solar electric and solar hot water (or PV). We researched a few of the solar companies in NYC and chose Quixotic to build and install our solar panels...Our system has been fully operational for almost 6 years and we have not had any issues since the system was installed...This is a testament to the quality of the construction by Quixotic. I would highly recommend Quixotic for any solar installation project. They have been very professional and informative throughout the whole process. I hope they are able to make NY more solar!Residential PV, RD, Brooklyn NY
In 2006, I decided I wanted to be one of the first Manhattan pioneers to install a solar PV system into my newly renovated townhouse on the Upper West Side. Richard Klein and Quixotic were up for the task. They worked tirelessly with me designing the system, maximizing the panels, and creating a structural grid to hold them securely.Martin Krasnoff, Rand Realty NY, LLC
Quixotic installed a 5O kW system for our school on Staten Island in 2014. The system comprised of 165 Canadian Solar panels which effectively supplies about 40.5% of our energy from solar in one of our school buildings. Quixotic researched and did all of the paperwork for us in terms of permitting, and applying to NYSERDA. The company helped us to secure $57,000 from NYSERDA for our project.Sr. Patricia Corley, CND, President, Notre Dame Academy of Staten Island
