    "Outstanding product, Outstanding Service"

    Reviewed Apr 14, 2021

    Perihelion Solar is among the top solar companies in the State of Arkansas. When my wife and I were seeking to install panels at our house, we met with them and the process was one of the best we experienced for highly specialized services such as this. The company is comprised of highly educated engineers with real-world experience. They combine deep understanding from science with the practical knowledge of the best practices for installation to provide their customers what they actually need. They did not try to sell us anything that exceeded our budget nor what would be possible given the location of our home and the adjacent trees. We got the best possible value for our investment and they have consistently followed up to ensure the proper functioning of our panels. We are very fortunate and deeply grateful for having chosen Perihelion for our solar installation.

    Perihelion Solar helped me go green with their solar array installation. It was a well organized installation. They helped me understand the process to start with. I evaluated 3 to 4 solar installers but perihelions pricing was much better than competitors. You talk to their chief electricians directly and not a sales person. They help in clarifying your questions and customizing your installation to get a better pricing. Andy and his team were with us until the City council evaluation of the installation was complete. Due to weather and other issues, installation prolonged for a week but the entire crew was really patient enough to complete it without any issues. On the after installation support, they are next to best. An inverter went off after months of installation. They co-ordinated with the inverter agents and Andy came down in person to have it installed. They are a new team and with the dedication that they show, I believe they should go places. I wish them all the best and would recommend to any one who wants to go solar.

  • "Excellent overall value"

    Reviewed Mar 26, 2021

    Perihelion installed a 11.715 kW DC solar power system for my home in North West Arkansas in Jan 2021. I picked Perihelion from 3 other competitors on the energy sage portal for the following reasons:
    1. Cost - they offered the lowest cost per kW offering
    2. Quality of equipment - The combination of REC 355W Alpha (Black) solar modules and Enphase IQ7+ microinverters were among the best rated equipment as per Energy Sage website
    3. Customer Service - Andy was very helpful and explained the entire installation process - which included working with the local County offices to activate the system and tied it to the power grid. Their engineers also provided detailed documentation on the proposed system design and configuration which was very helpful.

    The onsite installation team were efficient and were a fun group to interact with. They originally estimated 4 days to complete the work, however with some rain anticipated on the last day, they pushed and completed the work in 3 days. I love the system they have installed, especially the part where I can check the panel performance and power generated (near real time) using an app on my mobile phone.

    Post install, Perihelion monitored the system to ensure that the panels are performing to their standards and found that one of the panels wasn't reporting any power. I still hadn't figured this out and it was Perihelion that identified this issue on their own and immediately sent an engineer to address it. It ended up being a panel not fully plugged in - so didn't require any major repairs.

    I think Perihelion provides excellent value and would highly recommend their services.

  • "Church Solar Project"

    Reviewed Mar 16, 2021

    Simply put, the most professional vendor one could ask for a 64 kw turnkey solar installation. I am Parish Administrator for the local Episcopal Church and deal with many vendors and contractors. The system we installed on our church appears to meet our current needs and helped our church meet a dream that will eventually reduce church operating costs and protect the environment. Perhelion Solar exceeded all my expectations including safety (including covid safety), insurance and bonding, design, pricing and financial assistance, cutting edge materials, retrofit to existing structure, timeliness of installation, appearance, working around church schedule, addressing emergent concerns and courteous professional staff. Thank you Perhelion! KaDee

    We are so grateful that All Saints chose us to make their dream a reality! Working with the vestry and the leaders of the church has been a pleasure, and to know that we score high in comparison to other contractors keeps us motivated to continue to provide the best service possible. Thank you for the excellent review!

    Andy and his gang, including Wes, are great to work with. They stayed on top of things until my system was installed. I think it was a good deal, and as far as I can tell, it looks like a quality job.

    Looking forward to years of free power now.

    I had given up on the idea of going solar until a friend suggested I get an estimate from Perihelion. I am so glad I did. Going solar with Perihelion is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The price was great (much lower than competition). The people at Perihelion were and are great. The productivity of the system has exceeded my expectations. Bonus: I get to help make a better world for the future.

    We are so grateful to have found Andy Barrett and Perihelion Solar in Russellville! First, we really appreciate the trust and accountability that comes with doing business locally. Second, Andy worked with us to design an effective array that accommodates the afternoon shading brought on by our towering pecan tree. We have east, south and west facing panels. Third, I am sure there are folks out there with larger budgets than ours, but our array produced enough through the spring and summer that we were able to bank KWh with Entergy! Fourth, Andy took time to answer all our questions from the viability of our roof to how net metering actually works; in addition his response time was always within 24 hours. In summary, with Perihelion Solar, we found engineering expertise, personal service and reliability and that is just what we needed when making our solar investment.

  • "First-Class Service"

    Reviewed Nov 05, 2019

    Andy Barrett and Perihelion Solar built a large residential array for me in October 2018, walking me through the process from concept to post-installation analysis. They were fantastic. Professional, friendly, and timely, they educated me as the project progressed. They truly care about WHY they build solar installations as much as HOW. It is not just a business to them, but a mission. The installation looks great, and receives compliments often. It is built well-beyond minimum specifications for maximum durability. I give my strongest recommendation for Perihelion!

  • "Great people. Great product."

    Reviewed Oct 31, 2019

    Perihelion handled everything from top to bottom. When we ran into an issue with the original plan, they were quick to determine the fix. We knew what we could expect from our system from the start since Perihelion had all the bells and whistles to show us exactly how the sun passes over our home and, as a result, our system potential. The install would modernize any home and turned out to be a beautiful modern addition to our 70’s ranch style home.

    Our install was not a simple one and Perihelion had no problem navigating and installing in a timely fashion. It doesn’t hurt that they are a great group of people who are easy to work with. These folks are local too, so the money stays local. We are fully satisfied and would highly recommend their services.

    Perihelion Solar installed a 9.66 Kw ground array at my house the Spring of 2018. Perihelion worked with me on picking array components, array placement, landscaping modifications needed to maximize array output, and helped with all the utility "hookup" paperwork. The installation timeline and total cost was clearly communicated to me. Actual installation closely followed the projected install prediction. The staff were friendly and informative, answering any and all technical questions quickly and accurately. I strongly recommend them for solar array installation.

    I met Andy when my wife and I were in the middle of a solar panel emergency. My panels were installed incorrectly by a previous installer, and my roof would leak whenever it rained. I was in a panic, but fortunately I learned about Perihelion. The first time I met Andy I was certain that he would come to our rescue, and he did. Not only did he correct the previous mistakes, he installed new mounts that would seal the roof so there would be no more leaks. Since his repair we have had several strong rain storms, and our attic is as dry as a bone. We also have more good news. We are saving over $100 a month in energy cost as a result of our panels being installed correctly. Thank you, Andy.
    I am happy to recommend Perihelion Solar Power Systems and Andy Barrett to anyone who might be considering an investment in solar power for you home or business. It will make money for you every month.
