Been wanting solar for a long time and finally decided to do it. The guys did a great job putting the panels up. They cleaned up the mess. Taylor is very knowledgeable and knows his stuff. A great decision.
Laura Sprouse
After looking at different companies, we decided Virginia Energy Solutions was the best to go with. They were quick, efficient and professional. We are already producing more than we need and are excited to be working with a great company. Highly recommend them.
Stephanie Leitner
I interviewed at least four different solar solution providers before settling on Virginia Energy Solutions. It is a locally owned and operated and provided the best solution at a reasonable price. Ian, the owner, wasn’t pushy with selling it, which was refreshing for a change, and explained every step of the process up front. The installation went very smoothly. Virginia Energy Solutions is a great choice when searching for solar panels; they are very professional and I would certainly recommend to friends and neighbors.
Abdulaziz Bulling
Taylor was amazing! Very detailed explanation of how everything worked. He answered every single question my wife and I asked. He kept me updated on Federal changes and interest rate increases which saved me a significant amount of money. He allowed us to make the decision that was best for our family. I would highly recommend talking with him about switching to solar!
Terry Zeh
The team and process at energy solutions was amazing! Taylor came to our house and walked us through the whole process from beginning to end explaining every scenario that we had a question about. The team that installed the panels were super friendly and efficient. Now all that’s left is to save money! I strongly encourage you not to be skeptical like we are sometimes. Give them a chance to tell you what they can do for you and see what you can do for yourself. 100% satisfied!
