We recently had our solar panels installed by KW Solar Solutions the experience was excellent. They made the entire process go Smoothly. Everyone was very professional. I did my research before selecting a company and chose them based on their reviews. Every review I have read was excellent. We are extremely happy with our choice and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a solar company. We hey do all the leg work and keep you informed the entire time. Once we went live they were checking on our production. They are not a big company but a family friendly oriented company one who will be there for you if needed. They value their coustomers even after the insulation is completed. We are so glad we chose them and will recommend them to anyone and everyone. We want to thank Rob, Jackie, Dale and the crew that came out to do our install on a Sunday before the snow fell on Monday. That showed their detication to us as a customer. Sincerely, Gerard and Betty Hawkins

My wife and I were so impressed with John Marrah's presentation that we basically had made our decision to go with Solar Energy Services that first visit! We liked the fact that they are a local company with roots back to the early 80's and they're here to help for the long haul (not here today, gone tomorrow!). Things for us happened quicker than we expected and the SES team took care of everything...we just sat back and watched the magic. Shout-out to Kevin Hoang and his crew for a superb job on the installation under some pretty challenging weather conditions at times. And Ethan Goddard and Erin McMahan were awesome and instrumental in seeing that all procedures and finishes were taking care of in the most professional manner. Our solar is up and running and we can, with the touch of a button on our phones, see immediately the current status of our solar performance. And that performance.......working perfectly just as John Marrah had demonstrated it would. Nice having a company that delivers on the work they propose. Thank you SES. Kind Regards; Sharon and Dan

Great Company for Solar and Roofing

5.00

Office location: Bel Air, MD 21014

We chose American Sentry Solar after interviewing a couple of companies, including a 'big name' in the solar business, because they were by far the most professional and because their bid included some roofing work needed for the installation. We were already considering a system with micro inverters which was their recommendation, and we are super happy with our choice. Because we installed 55 panels on a house with a complex roof design our install took several days. I stayed around to watch them work, and was impressed by the skill of the crew who took time to explain every stage of the installation process. American Sentry Solar was very efficient with processing paper work for permits, inspections and arrangin with PEPCO to install a net meter. Our contract was signed mid December, our install started mid January, and we went live mid February. The free lifetime web based monitoring that came with our system provides great insight into how the system operates, and how the south and southwest sections of our array behave during the day. Although its winter, and often cloudy we have generated over 750 kWh in just over two weeks. We expext to be close to net neutral once it warms up, we turn off our heat pumps, and the days get longer.

Lumina Solar

Short Version:
My experience with Lumina Solar was a very positive. I was blown away by the team's experience within the Solar industry and willingness to communicate with me every step along the way. From my sales manager and main POC Ryan Farrell, who answered a large quantity of my questions on the spot unhinged too many times to list and provided routine check ins as we waited for permits and paperwork of that nature to get approved by the various government groups, to the site surveyer Mark (I can't remember his last name) who took the extra time to identify and capture pictures of a few shingle nail pops and shingle nail holes on my roof that I was able to get repaired through my builder prior to panel install, to the install team and extreme professionalism & attention to detail of lead electrician Joe (I can't remember his last name) who explained the physical install process with me during day of execution and even provided me with some welcomed insight into how Lumina was formed. Lumina was also more than willing to install a Solar Edge HD Wave EV Charger Inverter w/ the charging cable and holder since my electrical panel is located in my garage. So I got solar panels (wanted solar ever since I was a teenager), A Solar Edge inverter with Power Optimizers, and an up to 40A @ 240 VAC Level 2 EV Charger wrapped into one project. Icing on the cake: Lumina conducted the research to confirm my eligibility for MD's EV Charger Rebate (In addition to the State solar grant and county property tax credit) , making this entire project that much more financially sweet. It's February, my system's been running for a few days, and I got over 70% of my electricity provided by solar on the extremely sunny and clear skies Monday we had.Very much so looking forward to summertime production because this is greater than expected already.

Deeper Dive:
My journey for solar pv started on EnergySage. I followed EnergySage's advice and attempted to receive quotes from several companies: Maryland Solar Solutions Inc, Tesla, Lumina Solar, Celestial Solar, and Solar SME. While I had mostly good interactions with the sales personnel from all 5 companies, my conversations with Ryan from Lumina Solar and Jim from Celestial Solar were the most reassuring by far. So I scheduled site assessments with both. Unfortunately Jim from Celestial was unable to make our scheduled assessment due to having a tech that called out sick as he had to fill in for said tech for an inspection. I sent him a follow up email to inquire on if an alternate date a week away would work, but I never got a response. So I proceeded in kind with Ryan from Lumina. The assessment with Ryan went extremely well as he developed the system in real time with solar estimating software on his laptop. The software seemed to be significantly more user friendly and visually appealing than what I encountered at the Tesla store when looking for a quote from Tesla/Solar City. We worked together and designed a couple of options.I compared pricing and such with the other quotes received. With the exception of Tesla, which was priced considerably low, all other prices between the companies I received quotes from were fairly in line. I decided to make my decision off of reassured quality as opposed to rock bottom lowest price (Tesla in this case) and ended up proceeding forward with Lumina because I was more than reassured in their capabilities along with their professionalism. The efficient all black panels, the experienced team, the experienced installers, the experienced electrician, and their competitive price in comparison to the pack. As a bundle it was the right call. If you're planning to go solar definitely consider Lumina. Happy to recommend and write an overly long review for a local company that is putting quality first and foremost.

We had a very positive experience dealing with Celestial Solar Innovations. Jim was one of three contractors that we obtained a quote from for our ~8 kW, 24-panel installation. He presented us with options in no-nonsense fashion, and was willing to work with us to meet some specific requests about how this would be tied into our home's electric system. Installation was done as scheduled, the crew was efficient, friendly and did a great job. Both Jim and Becky were very helpful (and are still now, bill fully paid), and respond to emails quickly. We're very happy that we went with CSI for this project. Highly recommended!

Prior to contacting Green Street we were dealing with another company. It took the other company over three months to give us the estimated cost. They did not provide the DE State portion nor did they break down the loan and how the tax credit would work.
We called Green Street Solar and Russell Pfaller made an appointment to visit us two days later. His presentation was clear and broken down so we could totally understand it. Russell took the time to answer all of our questions and gave us a time line when each step would occur. We received all of our documents electronically.

Nova Solar

I couldn't be happier with Barklie, Trip and the whole Nova Solar crew! I am a very particular, discriminating, and knowledgeable customer in terms of contractors working on my home. For example, before we went to contract I made them show me how they were going to run the electrical to make sure it was not going to look terrible like some solar you see. These guys are true pros! They have an impressive knowledge of solar, they supply top equipment which they buy in bulk to keep quality high and prices low, they are fanatics about running an efficient business so they can keep their prices low, and they perform their own installs so they can ensure top quality on each job. What more can you ask for?? They had my system up and running within weeks of going to contract, and it has been outperforming my expectations since then. I couldn't be happier with Nova Solar!

Office location: Beltsville, MD 20705

Had a great experience with EDGE, which included having to put down a new roof on my DC rowhouse. Tony was on my roof at least twice checking on his team, and his team was present for all DC electrical inspections, etc. Also accompanied me through the whole SREC registration process, and handled all permitting in house. Very impressed. High quality installation, done right.
