Going green is a good thing. Saving some green? Well, even better. As the only solar firm based on Nantucket, ACK Smart Energy has been leading the way in generating clean, renewable power on-island. From roof installations to ground mounts, we can walk you through all of your options and take you from HDC permitting through full construction to the sale of your first solar kilowatt-hour. Let's make a difference, together.





There are several key benefits of going solar. Find out how putting a solar system in place will benefit both you and the island community. In business since 2011, ACK Smart Energy has installed the majority of solar projects on Nantucket. We understand the extremes of the island/marine environment. (To say nothing of the extremes of the Nantucket permitting process!) This means we can assist you in determining the optimal location for your system as well as how to maximize the return on your solar investment, how to take advantage of the local rebate and Federal tax incentives and how to manage the energy credits your system ultimately produces. We work to make Nantucket more sustainable. Call us today and see why we are the right people for your project. 



The products we specify and install are American-made and of the highest quality. All PV panels are Panasonic HIT® Black which offer high efficiency, are aesthetically pleasing, made in the US, and have been proven in Nantucket's extreme salt, fog, and wind. We are also certified installers of Generac battery back-up systems. These feature self-supply, backup power, zero-export, and energy cost management capabilities. Each of the systems we install is customized for a given customer's structure, power needs, and energy goals. Let's talk. We will design a system that meets your energy needs and exceeds your expectations.
