About Seed

Who We Are

Solar Panels in a picturesque green backyard with pond in background

Seed was founded in 2009 by Cris Schrader, PE, to provide a professional one-stop-shop for solar, engineering, green building services, and installations while maintaining a personal customer service experience. Additionally, each project is unique, and we personalize our approach to each client’s needs.

Serving the Capital Region and Beyond

We serve the greater Capital Region (including the cities of Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga). Our headquarters are in Troy, NY at the Rensselaer Technology Park.


A Socially Responsible Community Partner

A core value of ours is giving back. Likewise, this is demonstrated through our volunteer work in solar and clean water projects, in part with organizations such as To Love a Child, RPI’s Engineers for a Sustainable World, and RPI’s Engineers Without Borders.
