About Us

Our business evolved from installing systems for friends and family. Referrals from those folks lead to our point now where we have installed over 100 solar PV systems.

I have personally used PV solar since 2003 when I installed a system on my residence with the assistance of the founder of an emerging solar business. Since that time, I have added to my system twice and upgraded components as necessary.

We guarantee to have the lowest per watt costs! Don’t sign a contract without getting an estimate from us!

I am actively engaged with the PUC and SDG&E fighting for PV rates which benefit the consumer. I want to ensuring that the solar benefits remain in place for YOU, the consumer. I can assist you in deciding on the right rate plan.

I am also a Tesla owner and knowledgeable in the EV rates for EV owners.

What Service We offer

Photovoltaic (PV) Residential and Commercial system installations, upgrades and repairs. Panels are much smaller and produce far more power versus what was produced even 5 years ago. Additionally, we can analyze your bill and provide you with the best possible system. Our staff is completely local and we do NOT contract out any segment of the solar to anyone else.

How Solar Works on Your House

Solar panels and PV systems are simple. As demand has increased, the pricing has dropped dramatically. Hardware specifically for solar panels are now mass manufactured. The system I installed in 2003 used self made racking from commercial shelving. The initial system I installed on my home in 2003 was over $60k. Today, that same system is well under $10k

INSTALLATION

Panels are laid out in arrays. Racking is now mass manufactured and far better. Systems are built to withstand winds in excess of 100 MPH. Roof penetrations are minimal and easily sealed to prevent leaks for the life of the roof.

SOLAR PANELS

Practically speaking, solar panels will last a lifetime. A solar panel’s performance warranty will typically guarantee 90% production at 10 years and 80% at 25 years. Degradation over time is minimal.

INVERTER

Panels produce DC electricity. The Inverter converts that to AC electricity, which is household current and brings the voltage down to 120 volts to sync with the utility.

UTILITY METER

The utility's electric meter 'runs backwards' when you over-produce, banking your over-production
