Tyler at RisingSun Solar was awesome. Very professional, knowledgeable and pricing was very favorable compared to other bids. During his presentation he explained solar and how the system would interface. He provided a timeline of what and when everything would happen, and this was updated upon our acceptance. Handling of HOA and Centerpoint approvals and certifications a Big plus. Project came in 2 weeks ahead of schedule. Communication during and after the project was very responsive and informative. Would definitely recommend RisingSun for any solar project

John, 4 weeks ago

I went with RisingSun because they had the panels I wanted, and the price was excellent. I took several bids, and the value for the price was excellent here. However, after I put my money down, I found myself consistently reaching out for updates on my project rather than getting any consistent follow-up, which is a communication issue. The project was contracted out to GreenLight Solar in Dallas, and there were some issues during the install, such as broken panels, wrecking my yard, etc., but I guess some things cannot be avoided, although I'm somewhat irritated that my yard won't be level again unless I do the work or pay to have it done. The project was eventually completed, and I was told everything was functional; again, however, the next steps were never discussed with me. Turns out, the system was not functional, so I reached out to RisingSun to address the problem, and I got pretty much nothing. I finally got tired of the lack of communication and just dealt with the contractor myself, who got the issue resolved. Not a peep from RisingSun since that time. The system has been excellent and there have been no functionality issues, so I am pleased with the final product, especially at the price point I got. However, RisingSun's lack of communication throughout the process is of concern, and when an issue arose I could not count on them to take care of it, so I am a little worried about what will happen if I have to make a warranty claim or something like that. I'm glad I put the panels in, but in retrospect, I would have spent a bit more to go with a different company.
