New Name, Thank You — Announcements

I would like to thank everyone who has ever met with us, referred us, or become a customer.

When I started RisingSun Solar in 2016, I never envisioned we would be as successful as we are today.

That is in large part thanks to our customers.

I was frustrated by the number of pushy solar sales companies and decided to start RisingSun Solar in 2016 to give homeowners the solar experience they deserve. That started with the sales process. We focus on educating homeowners, helping them make an informed decision. Our installers are committed to doing quality work and our service team is always ready to help.

We make sure to create a great experience from start to finish.

We’ve grown a lot the past six years. Our first office was over my sister’s garage and we now have locations in Kansas City, Houston, St Louis, and Oklahoma City.

Our focus on creating a great solar experience has led us to become one of the top solar companies in the country:

  • Inc 500 - 3rd Fastest Growing Solar Company in the United States
  • Best Company 2022 Sustainability Award
  • A+ BBB Rating
  • Fast 50 - Kansas City Fastest-Growing Company
  • Momentum 100 Award Winner

We’re very excited to announce we are changing our name to Astrawatt Solar.

Most companies change their name to get away from something. That is not the case with us. We are changing our name to move forward as we expand nationwide and begin to offer our business as a franchise.

This is an opportunity for us to focus on what we do - solar done right. We can now create great customer experiences for homeowners all over the country.

We’re not changing ownership and the entire team is staying in place. We’re the same people with the same focus on quality solar installations.

We’re very excited and hope you share in our excitement. We would be very happy if you referred us to anyone interested in learning more about going solar or anyone outside of our current markets who might be interested in opening a franchise location.

We’ve updated our employee email addresses but any old email addresses will still be active for a period of time. If you have any technical support requests please contact If you have any additional questions or concerns please call us at (877) 937-4786 / (877) YES-4SUN.

Again thank you, and feel free to visit our new website and help provide us with any feedback.

From The Stars. Power.

Thank you,

Keith Murphy
Founder/CEO Astrawatt Solar
