We currently install 1 in every 3 residential solar power systems in the U.S., but we also think big. We’ve helped businesses, governments, schools and other agencies install large scale commercial solar power systems to help them meet their sustainability and financial goals. Our clients include eBay, Walmart, the City of Sacramento, Los Angeles Unified School District, Boulder Valley School District and more.

Solar financing advantage

Switch to solar with no upfront capital costs and start saving on electricity as soon as you turn on the power. Our Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is just one of the flexible financing and purchase options we offer. Direct financing, instead of financing through a third party, means that you’ll have a single point of contact for all of your solar financing needs.

Competitive price

We’ve installed thousands of solar power projects across the country. Each one has helped us fine-tune our project management system and drive down costs. Operating on this scale lets us build strong relationships with our suppliers who give us volume discounts that we pass along to our customers.

Environmental stewardship

We’re on a mission to drive down the cost of clean solar energy. We’ve received many environmental leadership awards from the Aspen Institute and Acterra for our efforts. We were also recognized as the a Green Power Supplier of the year by the Department of Energy (DOE) in 2010. Join us. Take control of your energy cost while helping to build a cleaner future.
