Seattle - famous for grey skies and wet weather. But when it comes to solar energy options, the outlook is sunnier than you’d think!


Western Washington receives more annual sunlight than Germany, one of the world’s leaders of installed solar capacity.  In addition, the cost of solar panels has come down substantially over the years providing lower upfront cost making investments more attractive to those interested in the long-term benefits of solar generation.

What we offer

Roof System

This is the most cost-effective application, which in turn provides the best return on your investment. Solar panels are more efficient than ever! Couple that with a 30% income tax credit, there’s never been a better time to install solar panels on your home.

Ground system

Rooftop solar is not your only option for panel placement, and sometimes is not the best option. If you have the space for it, a ground mount solar array offers the opportunity to install more solar than what may fit on your roof. In addition to being easier to clean, ground-mount solar will typically run more efficiently since the system operates under less heat creating less friction as the solar energy transfers to your home electrical system.


Considering a backup source for power during a power outage? Adding battery backup to your solar project is a great way to store energy for those stormy days, and eliminates the need to maintain a gas engine like a generator. These batteries run noise free and automatically transfer power when needed. And YES, these do also qualify for the 30% federal income tax credit!

We are the premier commercial, residential, and new construction solar company in Washington State.
