Ipsun Power
Solar Energy Contractors in Washington, DC
"We were very impressed with the professionalism of Ipsun Power -- their planning, installation, and follow up were all exceptionally good. Planning was careful and accurate; installation was safe and smooth. Followup was thorough and included getting us all the tax papers we needed for our nice deduction plus metrics on how much electricity the panels are producing. Great job."

Amazing Skylights, Inc.
Solar Energy Contractors in Washington, DC
"I have had 11 Solatubes installed on my second floor by Amazing Skylights. I put them in my laundry room (2), a hallway (2), a bathroom (1), my closet (2), my shower (2), and my master bathroom (2). I absolutely love them! I had installed 5 and 4 months later I had 6 more installed. My upstairs is absolutely brighter, and I am thrilled with the result! I have had these when we have had severe rain and just with the blizzard of 2016. There have been no issues with any of the Solatubes. What was interesting was that the snow on my roof from the blizzard, took away the extra light I get from my Solatubes. I was reminded of how dark my upstairs was before I got them. What a huge difference they have made. Have I mentioned how much I love them? Amazing Skylights was fantastic to work with! Rich (the owner) and Al (the installer) provide wonderful customer service. They are reasonably priced, reliable, detail oriented, clean up after themselves, are respectful of my house, and kind. I highly recommend this company! If you have dark areas in your house, Solatubes are the way to go, and Amazing Skylights is the company to use. If the room can fit the larger one (there are 2 sizes), go with that one. Again, I cannot say enough how much I love my Solatubes! The approximate project cost includes all 11 Solatubes."

Celestial Solar Innovations, LLC
Solar Energy Contractors in Washington, DC
"We were thinking about going solar for almost two years but delayed because it was a big investment and we never seem to convince ourselves that we had done enough research. After getting quotes from several companies, we decided to go with Celestial Solar Innovations. Jim Reilly, Owner of the company, and Joe Reilly (Solar Consultant) are very professional and knowledgeable for the work they do. They answered all the questions we had. We did our homework and did enough research on products and provider. It took only a few hours on the internet to learn about solar panels in general and to get a handle on what we would actually be purchasing and paying for. We decided to have custom designed system of our choice. We asked several big companies for the system we wanted; but all of the big companies were mainly focused on one brand and were not able to custom design the combination we were looking for. We wanted to have Solar World Panels (reason they are USA made), and SolarEdge inverter and Solaredge optimizer combination. Celestial Solar Innovations worked with us and gave us competitive price for the system. They handled all the permits and paperwork. They have been professional, highly skilled and respectful of our needs as a customer. To us they are one of the best companies we have dealt with. Installation of the solar panels began in early July 2015, and the system was totally up and running by August 25, 2015. Now we only wish for a sunny day!! no rain no clouds . We love watching the Netmeter run backwards and watching our electricity bill going down. We highly recommend Celestial Solar Innovations for Solar System Project. Tyagi Family"

21st Century Power Solutions Llc
Solar Energy Contractors in Washington, DC
"The team at 21st Century Power Solutions installed solar panels on our town home last summer. They were professional, responsive, and thorough in all stages of the project. I appreciated their willingness to answer questions and their patience as we sought to compare different product and figure out what would be best for us. After installation, someone came back and looked at the project from the aesthetic perspective. (Making sure panels were centered and that hardware was hidden.) Panel have been producing energy beautifully for 8 months now."

Nova Solar
Solar Energy Contractors in Washington, DC
"I would highly recommend Nova Solar to anyone considering moving to solar energy. The company could not have been more thorough or professional. Every detail was explained prior to beginning the project, including what we could expect in tax rebates, how long it would take to see a return on our investment, and a full outline of the installation process. I love how they educated me on solar throughout the process without any of the sales pressure. The work was expertly managed and kept on schedule. In just one month, our electricity has gone from close to $200 a month to $19, and that is in the winter! Not to mention, Nova Solar either submitted or supplied all the paperwork necessary for my tax rebates - nearly a total of $15,000. Even my accountant was impressed! I could not have been more pleased with their expertise and excellent customer service, and solar has proved to be a phenomenal investment!"

What types of residential solar power systems do solar energy contractors design and install?


Solar power systems are part of the growing energy efficiency trend. You may be wondering, what is solar energy, exactly? Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun, and is then converted into electricity and/or utilized for heating air or water.

The most common types of alternative energy systems for the home are solar electric, solar water heating and wind power systems. Solar professionals can help with everything from installing solar skylights to implementing complete solar energy systems.

Let’s say you want a solar electric system for your home. An off-grid system basically consists of solar panels and battery banks. These battery banks store the sun’s energy so you can use electricity at night or on a cloudy day. This system is designed to keep household electricity running for about two or three cloudy days; longer cloudy periods require a backup generator. To install an off-grid system, you’ll want to hire a certified District Of Columbia solar energy contractor. You can find more solar energy contractors in DC (Washington), Arlington, Alexandria, Centreville and Leisure World.

Along with off-grid solar, wind and hybrid energy systems that include batteries and backup generators, there are also grid-tied solar and wind operations. Grid-tied systems are attached to your Washington, DC utility company so if you produce more energy than you use, your meter goes down and you build up energy credits.

Installing solar skylights can save electricity. Sun tunnel skylights are tubular daylight devices that capture sunlight through domes on your roof. Attached to these domes are highly reflective tunnels that draw natural light down into closets, hallways and stairways.

Questions to ask potential solar energy contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
  • Do you have state certification?
  • Will you come to my home for a free onsite consultation?
  • Are you able to repair an older system?
  • Can you provide me with a layout to see where the panels will go and what they will look like?
  • Can you give me any information on District Of Columbia solar rebate programs?
