Our Google Reviews

When we were getting bids for our PV project, we ended up selecting Rising Sun, LLC because Brandon S. came to our home and was very informative & straightforward with us. Even after we had signed the contract, Brandon continued to make himself available to respond immediately, whenever we had any questions. Rising Sun has a great team - Brandon, Matt, & the installation crew. We appreciated everyone’s professionalism and would highly recommend Brandon & Rising Sun to our family and friends!

Our Yelp Reviews

5 star ratingWe highly recommend Rising Sun.
They were very responsive and professional.
Both Jim and Matt were a pleasure to work with, as were the installers. The installer, Guy, was savvy enough to point out how poorly our new roof had been installed which the roofers has to come back and correct. (Not related to the panel installation)
Rising Sun delivered on all their promises.
We couldn't be happier with our new solar panel system and being "off the grid."

positive review Great to work with, start to end. Laid out their proposal clearly; kept things largely on schedule in the middle of a pandemic; and put together a system that thus far (several months in) has worked flawlessly and exceeded the expectations that they set for the system. Also, friendly and accessible.
