Ipsun Solar (Ispsun meaning “yourself” in Latin) is a solar company founded in 2016. It was founded by Hervé Billiet and Joe Marhamati after the two met working in the U.S. Department of Energy. Hervé helped design the first solar-panel car, and together he and Joe made it their mission to “install as many solar panels as [they could] to fight climate change” and educate their buyers about the financial and environmental benefits of going solar.
The company received the Angie’s List Super Service Award in 2019, is BBB Accredited, and is NABCEP Board Certified.
A Certified B Corp (or B Corporation) is a business with a social-change mindset. In order to be considered a B Corp, a business must prove that its organization makes significant contributions to support social change. A rigorous evaluation process examines the organization’s efforts to address the needs of its employees and customers and how it impacts the environment. B Corps are one of the best ways to create real and lasting change through business. Customers who choose Ipsun Solar can be certain that their contributions are making a marked difference in the world.
As part of Ipsun Solar’s dedication to enabling sustainable change, the company also strives to educate its customers on the best solar panel options, including a shade estimate to best work with their home or business. Ipsun Solar is a fully independent solar company, meaning it does its own solar panel engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance. As part of its excellent maintenance policy, Ipsun Solar will help with all solar panel problems, regardless of the company who installed them.
Ipsun Solar offers four different ways for customers to purchase their solar panels:
Ipsun solar is a certified Tesla Powerwall installer. If you choose the Powerwall option, a sleek, while box is installed in your home or outside property that acts as a large battery. The box stores sunlight energy during the day to make it available anytime; this is especially helpful in the event of a power outage or when going off the grid for up to seven days at a time. Tesla Powerwalls are warrantied for 10 years with at least 70 percent of its charge capacity.
Currently, Ipsun Solar is only available in Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and Maryland.
Ipsun Solar has only been in business for four years, meaning it’s important for customers to be aware that both the service and equipment warranties exceed the number of years the company has been in businesses. On the other hand, many new solar companies have risen to meet the demand for sustainable energy in the past decade, already exceeding customer satisfaction with quality products and services in just a few years.
With extremely high accreditations from the Better Business Bureau, Angie's List for Super Service, and as a B Corp, Ipsun Solar ensures customers can be confident they are treated with the best possible care and best products and services.
