Founded in 2009 in Honolulu, Hawaii, RevoluSun entered the Massachusetts market in 2012 under the leadership of Kip George. RevoluSun is a SunPower Elite Dealer, Certified Solar PV Installer, and a member of several organizations, including the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Needham Business Association, Scituate Chamber of Commerce, Massachusetts Electrical Contractors Association, Inc., Builders Association of Greater Boston, and Beverly Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. No government actions have been taken against the company, and there are no reports of deceptive marketing practices.
RevoluSun chooses to use only the most efficient and highest quality products made by reliable manufacturing partners. For example, the company carries the world's most powerful and efficient solar modules made by SunPower. Additionally, RevoluSun only works with highly trained professional tradespeople and employs several NABCEP certified project managers.
RevoluSun offers a simple installation process that starts with a free home energy evaluation. After that, the customer will have the opportunity to pick and choose the elements they want for their unique solar set-up. RevoluSun will provide an easy-to-understand proposal with no hidden fees and then have its engineers design the system and prepare the necessary construction documents. Once the installation has been scheduled, RevoluSun will work with the local utility companies, permitting organizations, and inspectors to provide its customers with a fully operational and safe solar installation.
RevoluSun provides its customers with several payment options to choose from, including outright purchase, interest-free and low-interest loans, solar leases, and power purchase agreements (PPAs). Leases include zero money down for qualifying individuals; a 20-year agreement that covers monitoring, repairs, and insurance; and a locked-in rate for the life of the agreement.
RevoluSun's Massachusetts location has a stellar reputation and we couldn't find anything negative about its services online. However, if you live in the Hawaii service area, you might want to proceed with caution; there are some negative reports on online public forums accusing RevoluSun's Hawaii location of poor customer service, shoddy workmanship, payment issues, and process delays over the span of 2013 to 2015.
RevoluSun only services two states, Massachusetts and Hawaii, which is low compared to other top companies in the industry. We see that the company is attempting to branch out with franchising, so hopefully RevoluSun will be available in more states in the near future.
RevoluSun's website contains very little detailed information. While it does give snippets of information about the process, we don't feel that it's enough to help customers make an educated decision about whether or not they would like to do business with the company. For example, what warranties does RevoluSun offer? Is system monitoring available? These questions cannot be answered simply by looking at the company's website, which can be frustrating for potential customers who would like to learn more.
