Testimonials




Tim & Jim –
I wanted to write you to thank you for the highly professional work that you and your company performed in removing and replacing my PV system while my roof was repaired. Not only did you put the system back together in good fashion, you also did a warrantee replacement of my inverter when it wasn’t working properly and went the extra mile to explain the rather cryptic Xcel Energy billing statement.

Again, thank you for a job well done. If you need a reference for anyone in the future, don’t hesitate to have them contact me as a highly satisfied customer.

We were introduced to Jim Bartlett and Tim Meisinger at the unveiling of a friend’s system that Arise Energy installed. In February we started considering solar just shortly before Xcel “cast a giant shadow” on continuing the solar rebates. They (Arise) kept us informed of every development in the ensuing fight to get the program back on track and made sure that our application was filed the moment the program resumed. The system installation went smoothly and no modifications were required by the City of Lakewood. The panels are producing more energy than estimated and our last check from Xcel for the REC credit exceeded the amount of our last bill! We have no hesitation in recommending Jim and Tim to install any type of solar energy system. They also upgraded the electrical service (breaker panel) at our house simultaneously!

We highly recommend Arise Energy for your solar installation! We had tried contacting two other providers and got no response. Fortunately my wife got a pamphlet from a new friend at a networking meeting who recommended Tim Meisinger, Jim Bartlett, and Arise Energy. Tim and Jim contacted us quickly and have always been timely throughout the entire installation process. They came to our house and measured extensively and thoroughly. This produced a very precise and complete bid, full of information which we appreciated since this was a new area for us to explore. Arise was able to tell us in great detail what we could expect from our solar panels, from the energy generated to money saved, as well as give us a “picture” of what our house would look like after the panels were installed. Tim and Jim were very professional throughout the entire process. They were also extremely knowledgeable about their solar products and the whole idea of solar energy.

The installation process was painless as well. One thing I appreciated was their constant communication during the process. We were installed in December and the weather was always an issue, but Tim called us with updates as the install progressed. Their time at our home during install was seamless. They worked orderly, cleanly and pleasantly. I was impressed when they asked me for our house paint so they could match the house to the conduit they installed! I appreciate their attention to detail and taking care of my house.
I have strongly, and will continue, to recommended Arise Energy to my friends and neighbors that ask about our solar project.

I am very pleased in my decision to go with Arise Solar.  Yes, there are many solar companies competing right now. Some have multiple installs under their belt.  But one reason Arise (Jim Bartlett and Tim Meisinger) impressed me and led me to choose them over 2 other companies was their expressed commitment to integrity and excellence.  They did not disappoint.  There was one occasion where their supplier did not deliver as contracted (truly not Arise’s fault). Still, to assure that my install was not delayed, they paid a higher price for inverters and had it all working days later. No extra cost or delay to me!  Another item I threw at them (and not exactly addressed in the original contract discussions) was my insistence that they hide the electrical conduit by painting them with my house colors.  Without any debate or delay, both Jim and Tim were on those ladders painting and doing what they could to make sure my wife and I were pleased.  My system worked as soon as Xcel installed the meter; I thoroughly enjoy monitoring my output each day on the Enphase website.  My only regret is not seeing these guys as often.  Their humble and can-do approach is refreshing and infectious.  Great job, Arise!

I am happy say good things about the service and competence of Jim Bartlett and Tim Meisinger of Arise Energy Solutions. The photovoltaic system that they installed for me has performed just as described and it produces more electricity than I use; I don’t make monthly payments for electricity anymore. They managed all the paperwork and the physical installation so that the work proceeded smoothly. They patiently explained everything to us and kept us informed about the progress of the work. I recommend them to anyone considering the installation of a photovoltaic solar system.

Arise Energy Solutions installed our PV solar system several months ago. The system has always worked perfectly, producing nearly all the electricity we use, and is producing even more electricity than was predicted before the installation! We could not be more pleased with the excellent job Arise has done – from our initial meeting, to planning the project, to the present with our array continuing to be monitored. We highly recommend this company without reservation.

Arise Energy Solutions installed a 3kW solar electric system in my home. I was impressed with the company’s core values and the way they handled my project from proposal to install. They were very professional, honest, courteous, and they answered all my questions clearly. Arise offered the best value and service combination of every company we met with. I would recommend Arise Energy Solutions to anyone considering a photovoltaic system.

We knew virtually nothing about solar. We were looking for a financially sound way to reduce our utility bills and help preserve the environment for our two children.

Arise Energy Solutions provided us a comprehensive proposal which included very detailed estimates for the production of the solar array. They answered all our questions and bent over backwards to help us find the best solutions for our tedious requests.

Arise installed a 3.33 kW solar array on our home. When all was said and done, the workmanship was tremendous. The system is performing better than we anticipated and saving us more money than Arise estimated.

I am very satisfied as a solar system owner, and with Arise Energy Solutions. I have recommended to all my friends that they look into a solar panel system and call Arise Energy Solutions.

In fact, we plan on expanding our system next year and again using Arise Energy Solutions to do the work.

Thanks Arise,

I hired Arise Energy Solutions after shopping for a few months. I happened to know Tim Meisinger from his work at the YMCA years earlier, and I trusted him. In the end, he fulfilled that trust completely! I was probably not their nicest customer, because I knew what I wanted, and I was hesitant about having solar installed. When I wasn’t sure about the expense, they let me cancel the contract and let me decide on my own. They were so good about it I decided to use them to install the system. Then I was really a pain, because I wanted a really low-key, almost “invisible” system. They had to order all-black panels from a supplier they didn’t normally use, and order them from Germany. In the end, the system is exactly, and I mean “exactly”, what I wanted. I am very happy, and the system is as low key and unobtrusive as it could be! Excellent work. Excellent company.
