Above & Beyond Service

Professional and efficient. My first experience with getting solar panels installed. They explained the entire process from start to to finish even told me about the pros and cons, and MORE importantly ways to save money AFTER the system was installed. That’s a company that’s passionate about what they do.

Very glad I went solar with Uprise Solar!

Uprise Solar was a great solar installation contractor. From design to installation, everyone at the company that I dealt with was professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. They realized that there was more than one system configuration/size that would work for my roof and talked me through the pros and cons of the different systems. The installation itself went very smoothly. It’s great to see the system producing energy now that it’s all finished! As an added benefit, the temperature differential between the second and first floors of my house has decreased significantly, I believe b/c my roof, now shaded by the panels, is no longer absorbing so much heat from the sun. I highly recommend going solar and I highly recommend Uprise Solar!

Recommendation for Uprise Electrical Company

I'm writing this letter to state my official recommendation for Uprise Electrical Company for any solar needs. As a new homeowner, I've had a working relationship with Chris, Uprise’s owner, and only have praise for their business. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about solar panel installation and employs others who share their passion for increasing awareness of the benefits of installing solar on your home. Chris and the rest of the professionals at Uprise Electrical Company always complete their work well within the deadline assigned and they kept me informed throughout the project so that I was never left wondering if things were progressing as they should. I'm happy to recommend Uprise Electrical Company to any company or individual who wants to improve their property’s look or learn more about how your system will benefit you for years to come.

Great Experience with Uprise

Working with Uprise was easy and comfortable from our first inquiry about residential rooftop solar, through the contract process and completion of the install. The Uprise team was flexible, clean, and efficient. Chris is very knowledgeable about the solar industry and installation process and thoughtfully answered our many questions. The steps were clear, the install/inspection service was punctual and after three months with solar panels on the roof, the financial and environmental benefits are palpable. We would definitely recommend working with Uprise.

Job Well Done!

Uprise Electric provided stellar service in the intake, installation, and full execution of solar panels for my new home. I started the process with Chris (the owner)who came over and gave a personal consultation about the product, the system, and the time frame. He was so personable that it caused me to buy into the process immediately. The team came in and install the panels and did a wonderful job. The modern panels used didn’t takeaway from the aesthetics of my home and actually looks good on my roof. We ran into a slight snafu due to approvals that was outside of the control of Uprise Electric and Chris maintained effective communication along the way. I’m grateful for my solar panels and I’m grateful for Uprise Electric being the service providers that installed and currently manages the new solar panels. I highly recommend Uprise Electric!
