About Us

Our Story

It all started with our two founders, Alex and Brian, sourcing the best USA-made panels from local providers and installing them themselves in their own neighborhoods. Before they knew it, they had a whole team of local solar experts and were serving the entire state of Oregon.

We use Solar technology that is proven for Oregon’s Climate. We hire Oregonians who have an intimate knowledge of Oregon’s construction laws and available financial incentives. We source our panels from local vendors who are substantially vetted. We do all this to make your path to Solar headache free and a financial no-brainer.

But don’t take our word for it. After install we give every customer 24/7 back-door access to their system so they can see the magic happen for themselves from their mobile phone. Our Service team also monitors every system so we can service any issues right away, and because, heck, we like watching the magic too. Simply put, we are in it for the long haul.
