Latest bad review thumbs down

Half good - Half bad

The sales and contracting process with Lumina was quite good but they did push for a quick decision to beat a pending price and financing rate increase. Could have been legitimate or sales tactic but I elected to proceed regardless. The rest of the sales process was efficient and relatively fast. The issues came with installation. The job was challenging due to roof pitch and a 2 array configuration. The 4 person crew was undersized to get the job done and properly cleaned up in one day with short, late Fall daylight hours. The electrician was competent but seemingly gave little direction to the mechanical technicians. Of that group, 1 seemed to know what he was doing, 1 was able to follow instruction and the 3rd just stood around a lot. The first real problem was the hole that the electrician accidentally punched in an interior wall. He did notify me but did a very half-hearted clean up in the interest of getting back to the install. Accidents happen... The second issue was the volume of debris left after they had supposedly cleaned up at the end of the install. Leaving wire, wire nuts, chunks of u-frame, knock out plugs and self tapping screws in the driveway, back yard and patio for my tires, dogs or mower to run into or over is pure negligence. A huge problem? That depends on how those things are found and the eventual outcome - certainly unwelcome and unexpected for a nearly $50,000 purchase that needs to last 20+ years. Next on the list - the electrician never reported the wall damage, so I had to contact the company to arrange repair. After that, the repair company scheduled the repair for ~6 weeks after the initial damage so I elected to fix it myself to 1) get it done and 2) not face the problem of an unknown contractor creating another problem and or mess. Back to the good side - the permitting, interconnection agreement and SREC setup were all simple and painless. Bottom line - if their A team shows up to do the install - likely a good overall experience. If the crew that did our work shows up... see above.

Power to the People 2023

It started with a phone call with Christopher Richardson who was the Project Manager/Sales Consultant. I asked a lot of questions but he guided me thru them all along with prep tasks I needed to do first. He was always responsive, patient and very knowledgeable as well as honest. Once my property was ready for installation, things went like a NASA space launch will perfect coordination of tasks with Lumina staff, third party inspectors, utilities and permitting. The finished product is world class in terms of workmanship, quality and sophistication. It is also visually very compatible and unobtrusive with the style of the house. You literally can’t tell it is there. I could not imagine any other firm having all of these attributes. We are making power and it is very exciting. Power to the People in 2023 is a reality thanks to Lumina.

Lumina Solar focuses on customer service & satisfaction.

Lumina Solar is an exceptional solar panel company focusing on customer service and satisfaction. I know first hand. The people who work at Lumina including the sales representative, office staff, and installation crews are professional, transparent and detail oriented. I developed a rapport with the Lumina salesman, Steven Coffman. Steve explained the full process at our initial meeting and subsequently during each phase of the solar panel process. Several times Steve replied to my after work emails immediately! The Lumina staff people prepared my HOA approval so expertly that I received a fast approval without needing amendments or clarification. The electricians and panel installers were professional and worked on my home with care and consideration. I value greatly the care they took with the roof installation of my solar panels. I have only positive feelings about the company and recommend them without reservation. I was very happy that several workers spoke very well about the company too. If you are planning solar panel, contact Lumina Solar and ask for Steve Coffman.

Excellent experience

Going solar is something I’ve thought about for years and finally decided to act on it. Jevon Ciciliot, my salesman reached out to me and drove all the way up to my house to discuss further and come up with a game plan with the most efficient system possible. Jevon was polite, respectful, professional, and knowledgeable. With such a major investment, naturally there are a ton of questions. Jevon was able to answer and explain everything in a way that doesn’t make your head spin. He also presented and carried himself like a friend that I’ve known for years. Jevon was always available to answer any questions that inevitably pop up and would get back to me promptly regardless of how busy his schedule may be. Once it came time for installation, the install crew also carried themselves professionally and worked quickly. I was told it was a 2 full day job to complete but they were done in a day and a half without any mistakes. They kept me in the loop throughout the install so I always knew how things were going. And most importantly they didn’t leave any mess behind once they were done. Overall I had an excellent experience.

Best Solar Company

I got many quotes for solar panels before finally choosing Lumina Solar. They provided the best customer service, panels and price. They answered any question I had even months after the system was installed. I referred them to a friend and he got Solar through them as well and is just as happy as me.

Very Professional

From my first contact with Lumina Solar the employees have been nothing but excellent! They answered all my questions, always in contact with me about appointments and any changes that occurred. My initial meeting with Matt answered all my questions and he was my contact all the way through. The various employees that were out to do the installation were pleasant, courteous, professional. They were efficient and cleaned up after themselves. I am so pleased with my solar panels!

After a lot of research and skepticism about going solar, I choose Lumina. Working with Gabriel and his team made the process smooth and easier I than expected. Lumina is very organized, professional, true to their word, & give excellent customer service. The panels and inverters that Lumina offers are highly rated is another reason I went with them. The panels have been online for two months and performing as advertised. I would recommend using Lumina.

My experience with Lumina Solar

I started exploring the installation of solar panels on my roof in July of 2023. I talked with and met with sales people from several companies. After meeting with Gabriel Shabtai from Lumina Solar I decided to go with Lumina. Gabriel explained the entire process clearly. He offered the best price. Working with Gabriel and the rest of the staff at Lumina has been a pleasure. They have been extremely courteous, prompt in their reply to all my requests for help. Every step in the installation process has been absolutely professional. From surveying the roof, to planning the system, to expediting the permitting, to installation, inspection by the county post installation, working with BGE to arrange net metering, to obtaining the permission to operate from BGE has been quick and seamless. All the staff at Lumina have been excellent. Caitlin did all the scheduling. Gary, Jason did great work with the installation. Chris the master electrician was very accommodating in working to install the Junction box, disconnect switch in the garage. They took all the needed pictures of the entire installation that was needed for post installation inspection. Lastly the initiation of the system going live was done remotely. From the day I signed the contract to when the system went live in operation took merely seventy days. Super fast. Cara and the team working to get my incentives from the state of Maryland, to property tax credit from Baltimore County and registering me with to get my credits for the system has all been done in one day. I have nothing but praise for the entire team at Lumina Solar. I am really happy I made the decision to go with Lumina. Gabriel was not only my sales person, but my project manager. He was very prompt in replying to all my text, email and phone messages. I have lived in my house for 35 years and worked with many contractors, Lumina has been the best one to work with.

Best experience from Sales to installation and Installation

Before I went Lumina as a service provider, I did my share of research in the marketplace. Alexander one of the sales rep provided me the details with different options including detailed setback options as well. During the roof inspection and installation process I had received details and instructions about the whole process. Installation is completed in one business day, even though the PTO got delay due to county inspection Lumina provide periodic reminders and status update. After PTO they helped to setup SREC account as well along with my county tax exemption filing. One final thing they even take extra steps to fix patches during installation along finding services to paint as well. Overall great

Solar Installation by Lumina Solar

About a month ago I had a wonderful experience with Lumina Solar when we signed a solar installation contract. My point of contact was Andrew Cimino and he completely reduced any complexities in the process over a couple of Zoom calls explaining everything from A to Z. The pre-installation activities like site review and permitting with the County, my HOA, and the BGE utility company were all handled by the company expeditiously without a hitch. On the day of installation their installers arrived early and started work on the electrical wiring and panel installs. They finished everything on same day and cleaned up the project site. Lumina Solar made the entire process look so easy I couldn’t help but wonder why other solar companies made it sound complicated. A month after the installation I can say all the panels are producing electricity as planned, shown through daily, weekly and monthly reports I receive. Lumina Solar has given me the peace of mind I needed and I unreservedly recommend them to anyone who wants to go solar.
