"People You Can Count On, People You Can Trust"

It is the people who comprise a company that make it what it is. I have been involved in a number of construction projects in Kent & Queen Anne's counties and in the past worked with Richard Stoltzfus, the owner of Sunrise Solar, on another non-solar project. I know him to be a skilled, competent and honest craftsman who uses the best materials available, takes pride in his work, and surrounds himself with like-minded crew and staff. I had been considering solar for some time and when I found that it was Richard who had started up Sunrise, I knew whom I could talk with to get straight answers and the best advice. The entire job was done while I was out of town and I knew that I could count on finding a neat, clean, well-crafted installation upon my return. There was no need to look over anyone's shoulder to make sure that it was done right. Even the paperwork involved with permits, approvals, grants, sale of energy credits accrued, etc. was a headache with which I was in no way involved - the entire process was ably and effectively dealt with by Richard's associate, Dan Baugher, who has been diligent and effective on his follow through and follow up on all these matters. It has been and continues to be my pleasure to work with the people at Sunrise as I am sure it will be yours as well, for you could not find a better team to partner with.
Chestertown, Maryland
We highly recommend purchasing a solar system from SunRise Solar. The staff is professional, polite and friendly, and continue to answer all our questions in a clear and understandable manner.

The initial visit was promptly scheduled and came as a result of contacting the SunRise Solar office in Chestertown. The Salesman who came to our home was very prepared, knowledgable, professional, answered all our questions, and gave us the additional information we needed to make the best decision to suit our needs. We realized that SunRise Solar was offering a high quality product, the best warranty available, and a team of experts, so without hesitation we signed a contract on April 20th.

Once the contract was signed we were contacted by SunRise Solar’s Project Manager. He handled the entire system design and installation including completing an application with our electric carrier, contacting the manufacturer of the building on which the system was to be installed, coordinating subcontractors, processing all necessary permit applications and paperwork required by state and local agencies and our insurance company, set us up to monitor energy output, and market our solar energy credits.

Our system was “turned on” on June 16th. Since that time SunRise Solar has educated us on how to monitor our system’s energy output using an on-line portal, by physically viewing the system invertors, or by physically viewing the electric meter.

We experienced an issue with one of the invertors that was initially installed. When we contacted the Project Manager about the problem we learned he was already aware of and working on the issue as he had been monitoring our system since installation. The invertor was replaced promptly - no questions asked. The entire crew was mannerly and hard working – they never left any trash or debris on the job site, and they were quiet – barely knew they were here. If we had a question, concern, or needed anything explained throughout the entire process, we were treated with professionalism that was first rate.

If you want to reduce your electric bill and your carbon footprint don’t hesitate - contact SunRise Solar. They are knowledgable professionals who sell a great product and are fully committed to the highest standard of customer service. It is time we all reduced our dependency on fossil fuels and harvested energy generated by the sun!

I have nothing but positive comments about Sunrise Solar. I stopped in their office one afternoon and met Kendrick Tice. He treated me like I was his only client. Explaining the whole process and answering all my questions without rushing. He was very patient with us as we explored various placement options. Once we decided which was best for us, we signed the contract and paid the deposit. Dan Baugher took care of the construction and helping with the paperwork which would have been overwhelming without his help. Construction was completed quickly and cleanly. We are very satisfied with our new solar system and would highly recommend Sunrise Solar to anyone contemplating a new solar system. Thanks for a great job and a great local company.

"World Class Service"

Sunrise Solar has shown us what world class service really means. From day one, Kendrick Tice shared step by step project information and always was available for questions. The solar panels are top notch and we are thrilled with the Solaredge monitoring system that lets us see our production levels. Best of all - we haven't had an electric bill since installation. We thank the Sunrise Solar team and Green energy rocks!
We are so happy we went with Sunrise Solar for our solar installation. Our solar was installed, up and running in March, 2016, and we have not had an electric bill since – only the $8.50/ month fee as required by the electric company! Dan and Tice were great to work with, as well as the others involved in the installation. Everyone was very professional, knowledgeable, and wonderful to work with - they are just plain good people who know their stuff. They answered all questions we had, and handled everything from the paperwork for the permits and the electric company, to the installation itself, and continually monitor the system to make sure all panels are working as they should.

It has been well worth the investment, and we will recoup the money we put into it within about 8 years, just like paying off a mortgage, with one less bill to pay. We highly recommend Sunrise Solar to anyone interested in a greener world and no electric bills! Thank you!
I was skeptical when my husband first started talking about solar & how much it could save us, but we moved ahead with the decision. Our solar system has been installed for about four months now & I must say I couldn't be happier! From the salesman to the installation crew, everything was handled very professionally with my many questions answered along the way. The best part of this whole experience....seeing a credit on our electric bill & having extra money coming into our bank account from the SRECS. Thank you Sunrise Solar for helping us do our part to "go green"!!
We are completely satisfied with the system and service of our local Sunrise Solar Team.

Our purpose for investing in the Solar system was to cover the cost of our basic needs for the electrical use. Since the System turn up in January of 2013 we have been pleased with the operation, it makes you aware of your electrical usage and weather/cloud conditions on a daily basis. Our electric cost now is basically the administrative fee of the Power Company and more so earning a quarterly check for the KWs produced. The Sunrise Solar Team has been very helpful from the beginning explaining the system, how it works, the installation and the permit process. You as a home or business owner can track your daily Household / Business and system output by means of the internet on an hour by hour or daily output as also on the System Inverter. Our Sunrise Solar Team continues to stay in touch to see if we have any questions or needs for the System.
"we have free electricity"

When we decided to build our earth sheltered home solar panels were a part of the picture. A decision that we do not regret, for our electric bill is $12.00 per month, and that is because of distribution fees which are returned to us at the end of the year. So, essentially we have free electricity. I planned enough panels so that I could run my home based business. I run embroidery machines and a couple of computers and all of the electronics that goes with that type of business, and so I happily pay the electric bill each month.

Our previous home was without panels and the electric bill was between $300.00 and $400.00 each month, so this is a remarkable savings.

Our Process
STEP 1: Conslutation

Is to talk to one of our Solar Energy Consultants about your energy usage and solar goals. Now that Sunrise Solar's energy consultant has gotten a clear understanding of your needs and wants, we will work with you to design a system and explain what solar will look like for your family.

STEP 2: Decision

Say YES and put a deposit down on the best solar system for your family.

STEP 3: Site Inspection

Our technicians and designers will visit the location to take more detailed measurements of the available area
for your solar array. If a roof mount system is desired, our roofing experts will verify a sound roof.

Step 4: Interconnection to Grid

Our team of experts begin the process of contacting your current electricity provider to begin the interconnectivity
to the grid. Building permits are also requested through local government. We will handle all the paperwork.

Step 5: Installation

Our experienced installers begin the process of installing roof rigging or field preparation and panel installation.

Step 6: Inspection

County building inspectors are then contacted. This process is completed with a Sunrise Solar agent on site.
You do not need to be present. Though if you are curious about the process, we welcome your attendance.

Step 7: New Meter Installed

Once inspection has passed, a new meter is installed, the system is registered with your power company and
grant paperwork is completed.

This is the fun part - receiving your electric bill either zeroed out or with significant savings.

How much will solar panels increase my home value?

One of the questions we always get is if solar panels will add value to your home.

There is a new study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab that investigated the trends in home pricing in several states (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, and California). The study analyzed more than 20,000 homes and analyzed the housing markets to find out what people were paying for homes with and without solar power. 

The overall results were that solar panels will add value to your home. Buyers will pay more for a home that has solar panels.

Solar panels are a great investment for savings while you live in your home as well as a return on investment if and when you decide to sell your home.
