Good experience overall

I had a great experience with Radiant. John Wilt was the point person for my project. I did a lot of research beforehand and considered five different estimates. Radiant's was similar to a couple of others, but after talking with John a few times, I was convinced that Radiant was my best option. John was knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. The whole process from purchase to installation takes a while, of course, but John made sure I was updated at every stage. Even after he handed the baton over to the project manager for the installation (Zach, who was also excellent), John stayed in touch to make sure everything was going well. I also own a rental home in another state, and even though Radiant doesn't work in that state, John volunteered to vet proposals for that project. Overall, I was very impressed with Radiant. Everything went smoothly. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with them. Now, if only I could get Dominion Power to install the updated power box so that I can turn on my system. . .but that's not Radiant's fault.

Honest and Informative

I spoke with John who was very straightforward in his assessment of what installing solar at my house would look like. It was refreshing to not have solar pushed as a perfect solution for us as he was able to clearly explain the benefits and drawbacks of going forward with solar in our specific situation. I appreciated the honesty and felt like he had our best interests in mind and wasn't just trying to make a sale.

Great experience

Great experience from my first interaction with John Wilt to the completion of the work and beyond. He always kept me up to date with everything and handled all necessary accompanying needs surrounding the project. I recommend RADIANT SOLAR without any reservations. It was truly a great experience. Thank you.

Solar Panels installation

I am a very happy customer. Working With John Wilt and his team at Radiant Solar was easy. They did a very professional job first answering all of my questions and concerns about adding solar to my home. The installation staff were real professionals and respected my property. No mess, absolutely no damage. The difficult part were the delays caused by my county permitting department which they powered through. Most of all, I am delighted that I am producing a good amount of my power needs that were only constraind by the size of my small roofline facing South.

A Standout Solar Energy Company: Exceptional Customer Service, and Quick Installation

I recently had an outstanding experience with Radiant Solar. They installed a solar energy system at my home in a remarkably short amount of time. What impressed me the most was the company's competitive pricing, exceptional customer service, and attention to detail. When I first began researching solar energy for our house, I was overwhelmed by the options available. Radiant stood out from the rest with its competitive pricing and no-pressure sales pitch. They provided a detailed breakdown of the costs and helped me understand the long-term benefits of investing in solar energy. Their team was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. John, in particular, was (or would say, he is) incredibly responsive, and he always got back to me immediately. The installation team was equally impressive, arriving on time and working efficiently to complete the installation in record time. They also handled all the necessary permits and inspections, making the whole process hassle-free. I highly recommend Radiant and John to anyone installing a solar energy system. Their competitive pricing, exceptional customer service, and quick, hassle-free installation make them stand out from the rest of the players in the market.
