Celestial Solar did a phenomenal job installing solar panels on my home. Jim spent time significant time walking me through the panel options and pros and cons of each option. Once I signed the contact, the time to installation was incredibly quick - they were installed and operational a month before I expected. The installation crew was professional and friendly. Finally, the company handled all of the paperwork for me to get my credits etc. The entire experience was seamless. I have only positive things to say about Celestial Solar and would recommend them without hesitation.

We talked to about a half dozen solar companies before taking the plunge to have solar installed for our home. We went with Celestial, because they offered the best combination of knowledge/experience and return on our investment. It was a little confusing, because the estimates for how much we could produce varied widely and we have a wooded lot with an open yard and southern exposure, so it was hard to know who was correct. In the end, Celestial's offer seemed best and about four months in, we are producing solar at a rate that is on target for the estimates we received (even considering that we have not been through the leaner winter months with less daylight). So far, we are very happy with this decision. We refinanced our home to do several major projects and solar is the one that i already paying us back!

Great Solar Install
Checked around and did my homework and Celestrial won hands down. the only lower bid was for a lesser system and the salesman made me uncomfortable from the start. My system is working great with no problems and so far I have not paid 1 penny for electric. I especially liked the no pressure sale and willingness to answer any and all questions. Enjoyed chatting with the installation crew who were all courteous and knowledgeable. A truly good company and as far as I am concerned look no further for your solar needs.

Highly recommended company
We had a great experience with Jim and the Celestial team. The process from beginning to end was smooth and all communications were clear and reliable. We are extremely happy with their work designing and installing the system and their assistance applying for the state tax rebate and SREC solar credits. I highly recommend contacting Celestial if you are considering solar.

Great Experience - Knowledgeable, Patient and Price Competitive
Jim and his team at Celestial Solar are great. We know we wanted to do solar for environmental and financial returns but we did not know anything about the technology, options, etc. Jim did a great job walking us through the process, educating us and answering all my questions as I ran and questioned the numbers. I intended to sole source to Celestial but got a bid from an online marketplace just to make sure the price I was getting was competitive. Jim patiently walked me through his quote, the differences, etc. Bottom line, his price was very competitive and there were no corners cut on older models of panels/inverters to artificially keep the price down. The install was seamless, the team took great care to make sure the install was ascetically nice as possible. I would recommend Jim and his team at Celestial Solar to anyone...don't waste your time on the marketplaces.

GOOD & RELIABLE
My wife and I have had a running joke for years that there are two kinds of contractors. Good OR reliable. It's just hard to find one that is both. Celestial Solar Innovations is the exception! Jim and his team kept us informed every step of the way. We never had to wonder where we were in the process. The work was completed ahead of schedule and was completely effortless on our part. That usually doesn't happen. The quality of their work was exemplary. Mid-way through the project, we noticed that the drywall near the breaker panel had been chipped. Before we could even say anything, the drywall was repaired. We'd work with these guys again in a heartbeat!

What are you waiting for!!
Having Celestial Solar install panels on our home has been the best home decision we have ever made. We were incredibly impressed with the passion Jim and his team have for their product and how much pride they take in doing a perfect job from start to finish. Not only are we no longer paying the utility company for electricity and helping to reduce carbon emissions but it actually looks great! We've had many neighbors complement our system and start looking into installing panels themselves. We've had no hesitation in referring them to Celestial Solar!

Jim and his team did a stellar job on our solar panels. We worked through a few hiccups weather, placement of panels, and Covid concerns. Throughout the entire process, Jim was professional and knowledgeable. He provided quick feedback and responses. If you are the fence with install of solar panels, let Jim and his team guide you through the process! Highly recommend! Happy consumers!

My experience with Celestial Solar Innovations was wonderful
I wholeheartedly recommend Celestial Solar to anyone considering going solar. From the initial inquiry to the establishment of my SRECTrade account, Jim and his team were professional, informative, attentive to detail, and oriented towards my specific situation. They do it right. Here is some of the detail of my experience: Jim immediately differentiated Celestial Solar from the three other companies under consideration with his focus on my questions and concerns, a realistic assessment of the roof’s solar potential, and the tradeoffs regarding the number, location and quality of panels. He provided his recommendations, but made it clear that the decision was mine. Because we had to replace our roof prior to proceeding, Jim put me in touch with PJ Roofing with whom Celestial Solar frequently works. PJ Roofing not only installed the roof, it used the solar plan to relocate the attic fan, exhaust fans and plumbing stacks on the south-facing roof so the 21 panels could be optimally installed in one large block across the roof. Importantly, PJ Roofing and Celestial Solar had the lowest combined cost out of the 4 quotes. The crew installed the panels flawlessly in a day and a half. They clearly knew exactly what to do, and based on the light-hearted chatter, clearly enjoyed what they were doing. They minimized the amount of exposed conduit on the outside wall and roof – a concern of my spouse - by running it through the attic. As a testament to the quality of the installation I personally checked every roof rafter in the attic to see if any lag screws had “missed”. None had. I was particularly impressed with Travis, who did the detailed measuring of our roof and its solar potential and who waited for the County Inspector to arrive to approve the installation. While waiting Travis patiently answered my endless questions and explained the Enphase Energy System and Micro inverters to increase my comfort level. When one micro inverter seemed to have a spotty connection, he immediately climbed on the roof to resolve it and then verified the performance and serial number of the other 20. Even after I flipped the switch (literally) to turn on the system, Jim and Becky made sure I was familiar with the Enphase App, had the appropriate information for the Federal Tax Credit, Maryland’s Residential Solar Rebate Grant, and REC Certification. They also established SRECTrade account and explained how it worked. I have provided this much detail to convey the specifics of my experience was so positive. When you choose to use Celestial Solar you will not be disappointed. Jim, Becky, Travis and the Celestial Solar Crew, Thank you.
