    5 star review  Initially I was going to have my PV/battery system installed by another company which quoted me for $52k. A friend of mine told me that I should get a quote with Rising Sun. I called them up and they quoted me for the exact same system I was going to get from the other company but their quote came in at $43k. I gave my business to Rising Sun. Customer service is great. Financial options that they offered worked perfect for me. They got the job done much faster then anticipated. They were seeking for my input on things and how I want certain things to get done, while providing suggestions and giving me options. System works great and I’m very happy with my overall experience with Rising Sun Maui!

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  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!
