    5 star review  100% happy with the entire Rising Sun team - they were the most responsive, and competitively priced bid we got. Did everything in their power to get our solar done in 2020 for the tax credits. Can't recommend them enough!

Our Yelp Reviews

      We 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.
