Perihelion Solar - Profile & Reviews

Perihelion Solar was started in Russellville, Arkansas by Andy Barrett in 2017. Andy is a nuclear engineer and worked in the electric power industry for 25 years, and worked as a federal nuclear inspector for the 15 years prior to starting Perihelion Solar. Nuclear power plants use some of the highest quality components which affords them with highly reliable operation. Andy started Perihelion with the goal to bring this same level of quality and reliability to solar arrays installed on his neighbors homes and businesses. Perihelion was the first solar company to offer a full 25 year warranty for solar arrays in Arkansas.

Perihelion is an Arkansas company that prides ourselves on our honesty and efficient service and customer satisfaction. Our employees have a diverse background, NABCEP and Master Electrician licenses, and are skilled craftsmen that provide electrical system design and solar power installation. We know our customers are the key to growing our business and are committed to building them a solar array that will provide value for decades. Our cooperative model ensures that you are a part of our team from the moment your array is connected to the grid.

    I STRONGLY recommend Perihelion Solar for your solar installation (and support)!

    My Background: I'm a mechanical engineer with a business degree and 40 years of industry experience with product design, testing, analysis, support, and project management.

    I did a great deal of research on solar, panel makes/models, design options, providers, etc. before choosing Perihelion. Their proposal was similar in price to another that I had received, BUT their design was superior in several ways. Although Perihelion is a small Arkansas-based provider, they more than make up for that by being passionate about "doing solar right". Owner Andy and salesperson Jill were very thorough in answering my (many) questions about Perihelion, how to optimize my design, after sales support, warranty, contract, etc. Heath and his panel install team were amazing - their attention to detail showed. Heath was happy to let me observe the install and answered any/all my questions during the install. Wes performed the electrical/control box install and was outstanding. He encountered an issue with the local utility requirements and spent considerable extra time, expense, and installed extra equipment to meet the utility requirements (and at Perihelion expense!). He too was great to work with, explained the design details, and answered all my questions.

    I've had a few questions after my system was installed, and Jill and team have been very responsive. It's clear they truly want me to be a satisfied customer. The personal touch/support is one reason I chose a smaller solar provider and they've proven that to be a good decision.

    Bottom line: If you are looking for a solar provider that is passionate about solar and will provide you with a superior design, install, and post-sales support, I highly recommend Perihelion Solar. On top of that Perihelion associates top to bottom are some of the nicest, most professional teams which I've had the pleasure to work with.

    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.
