Celestial Solar Innovations installed a large solar array at my Chevy Chase MD home in 2016. I was very pleased with their attention to detail and the high quality of the installation. Jim Reilly provided excellent and professional advice from the design and selection of components through the completed installation and operation of the system. Mr. Reilly is an expert in solar installations. He was instrumental in identifying the most appropriate panels for my home. At his suggestion I used black on black LG panels which were a perfect solution for my home. I highly recommend Celestial Solar Innovations and Jim Reilly.
Terrific to Work With
We cannot say enough positive things about Celestial Solar! We spent months researching the pros and cons about leasing vs. buying and met with several companies to get quotes. While all the other companies kept trying to push us into the option that benefited their company’s bottom line rather than ours, Jim/Celestial was the only one to respect our thoughts/methods and simply give us all the information we were looking for so we could make our own decision. Jim and his team were terrific to work with, his crew was super friendly and always on time, and our solar installation looks better than any of the rest in the neighborhood! Thank you Jim and Celestial!
Installation Was Exceptionally Good
Jim did all the marketing and coordinating with the involved government agencies and provided all the paperwork for me to sign, along with full details on the system expectations. I own the panels so whatever they produce is mine without fees. The system is clean, efficient, and looks great on my house. The installation was exceptionally good. My first full month, the electric bill was down by a factor of ten.
I would most certainly hire Jim again and very highly recommend his company.
Did Everything They Said They Would
I first met Jim Reilly in mid July 2014 during my vendor selection process. Jim was the most professional of the three candidates that I interviewed at my house. His use of technology in his presentation included a tablet which contained soft copies of estimates, energy savings calculations, technical specifications from manufacturers, and color pictures of solar panels.
Celestial Solar did everything that Jim said they would do…They charged only what they said they would charge. They scheduled the installation on the agreed upon target date. They pulled the necessary permits to install on my house. They scheduled the county inspection. They completed all work listed in the installation contract. They provide 24/7 electronic monitoring of the solar panel productivity. They responded immediately to all questions and concerns.
I strongly recommend Celestial Solar Innovations as an extremely reliable manager and installer of residential solar panels.
The Real Deal
Celestial Solar Innovations and President Jim Reilly are the real deal! My initial experience with another solar installer turned into a three month nightmare of broken promises, misinformation and lack of communication. Jim and the Celestial Solar team were the complete opposite. Very professional and proactive from the initial contact to the design and build stage through the permitting and final approval process. I wish I had started my Solar journey with Celestial Solar but then I wouldn’t appreciate the work they did as much as I do.
