About ETM Solar Works
Our prime directive is to bring environmentally friendly solar power to as many people on planet Earth as possible. This is our 32nd year in business!
ETM specializes in solar energy systems. We install solar electric systems and solar hot water heaters on residences and commercial buildings and repair existing solar energy systems. We also install: Tesla Powerwall battery systems, air-source heat pumps for heating and cooling and EV charging stations. ETM is a woman-owned business.

ETM President, Dr. Gay E. Canough, is a founding member of the New York Solar Energy Industries Association (NYSEIA: www.nyseia.org) and instructor for over 250 Solar Installer courses.
We have been in business since 1988. We started out doing aerospace consulting work (ETM is short for Extraterrestrial Materials). We led the design work for the Lunar Prospector, a small robotic spacecraft that orbited the Moon in 98-99 looking for water at the lunar poles. We also did work on space solar power for the Space Studies Institute in Princeton and NASA.
In 1993 we decided to bring the resources of sp...ace to Earth more directly and go into the “terrestrial” solar energy business (solar energy being a valuable and easily accessible resource). Since then we have installed about 3 megawatts of photovoltaics in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Member: Better Business Bureau, New York Solar Energy Industries Association, Southern Tier Homebuilders and Remodelers Association, and the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce.
