"Once the renewable infrastructure is built, the fuel is free forever. Unlike carbon-based fuels, the wind and the sun and the earth itself provide fuel that is free, in amounts that are effectively limitless."  – Al Gore


Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 30+ year lifecycle.  It’s smart for your bottom line and it’s smart for the planet.



Solar is one of the best ways to invest, with returns on invesment (ROI) rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings and the 30% solar tax credit, the average homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 4-6 years and sees an average ROI of 3-400% over the life of the system!


Outstanding federal tax credits and rebates for solar and battery.

Another great benefit of solar is the ability to hedge utility prices and gain greater control over future expenses.  This is especially important as we move into retirement and fixed incomes.  Electricity prices have gone up an average of 4% per year with higher increases expected for the future. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can protect  your family against unpredictable increases in energy costs.


Solar panels can more than pay for themselves by increasing the value of your home.  Homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.

By going solar, you help with local grid stability by reducing demand and providing clean energy to you and your neighbors.  By choosing a local solar company, you make your dollar go a long way.  Not only do you support the success of our local economy by spurring job growth and providing fair wage jobs for our neighbors, you stimulate local spending and tax revenues which directly supports our schools, roads, infrastructure and services.


Unlike conventional electricity, solar energy does not pollute. Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and gain peace of mind from knowing you’re doing the right thing for the planet.  One kilowatt of energy produced by solar panels prevents 300lbs of C02 from being emitted into the atmosphere.  A typical residential solar system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Not only does solar increase energy independence for our country.  It frees you from dependence on utility companies, big oil, and other toxic sources of energy.   Solar puts you in charge of your energy source, your energy production, and your energy savings.

Going solar is good business.


We specialize in small to midsize businesses, wineries, farms, and multi-tenant facilities.   Solar offers rapid payback, strong return on investment and internal rates of return, and a predictable cash flow stream.  Commercial solar projects can deliver outstanding long-term investment returns for businesses. In addition to dramatic reductions in your company's energy costs, a commercial solar project can generate incremental revenue,

effectively creating new revenue streams. 


Solar is one of those rare investments that has no down side.  It is good for your customers, partners and employees,

it is good for the planet, it is good for your image, and it is good for your bottom line.

"He who knows what sweets and virtues are in the ground, the waters, the plants, the heavens, and how to come at these enchantments, is the rich and royal man."  – Ralph Waldo Emerson


We have extensive experience in all phases of mid-size to multi-megawatt, utility-scale solar farm development and installation.  We can provide end-to-end management of all phases of your next project, including planning and design, contracts and finance, permits and zoning, and turnkey EPCM.

"To truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy."  – Barack Obama


You can have your battery storage system seamlessly take care of your energy needs, with or without solar, and grid-tied or off-grid.  With our custom storage solutions, electric outages can be automatically detected and trigger your system to instantaneously switch over to your back-up battery as your energy source.  With smart energy management, we can design a system that offsets peak usage period so you are maximizing your energy production.  

Our storage solutions are fully integrated and scalable so you can build on to your system at any time to meet increased demands.  Protect yourself from the next outage and reduce your energy costs with energy storage.

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”

We offer ongoing or one-time operations and maintenance services.  This includes solar  system inspections, testing, repairs, upgrades, cleaning and maintenance.

"He who knows what sweets and virtues are in the ground, the waters, the plants, the heavens, and how to come at these enchantments, is the rich and royal man."  – Ralph Waldo Emerson


If your system is old or underperforming, we provide solar system decommissioning and upgrades.  Depending upon your needs, this can include removal and upcycling of your old system, free energy analysis, and installation of new panels and equipment to meet your current needs.
