We loved installing this 13.2kW system on a classic flat roof townhome in the Brightwood neighborhood of Washington DC. We used OMG attachments from @omgroofing and rails from @schlettergroup to attach the panels on the parapet walls. This creates a secure, easy installation process that maximizes the solar potential. REC 400 watt panels and Enphase microinverters finished the project for a beautiful, powerful system.

Homeowner Joyce said, “We received quotes from several companies and narrowed them down to three. In terms of sticker cost, Ipsun wasn’t the cheapest BUT it also wasn’t the most expensive and turned out to be the cheapest when we looked at the cost per unit of electricity produced. The proposed design for our system covered as much of our roof as possible and didn’t overpromise the number of panels that could be installed, which we felt one of the companies may have done.

Our sales manager John was great, both at presenting the benefits of going solar as well as answering all of our many questions (not just during our initial call but also afterwards when we were trying to make a decision and even throughout the process). The company itself is also a B corporation, which was a nice bonus.

We’ve been very pleased with all of Ipsun’s work. Everything that Ipsun controlled was smooth, clear, and well-communicated. The company provides an app where you can keep track all of the progress they’re making in terms of getting your solar panels operational. At some point, we were assigned Brandon as our project manager and he was just as responsive as John at answering any questions we had about how things were going.

The slowest part of the entire process was getting approval from Pepco for multiple things, which is out of Ipsun’s hands. Our solar panels are now operational and catching the last rays of summer. It took about 6 months from the initial decision to go with Ipsun to turning on our system. On average, we’ve been producing enough electricity to cover all of our needs. With the new federal tax credit, we’re thinking about getting a solar battery next year. If we do, we’d definitely go with Ipsun to get that installed and set up.”
