In It For Good

At our heart, we’re environmental activists on a mission to help preserve the environment by making residential solar power ubiquitous. We believe this will lead to a sustainable new energy economy.

A Purpose-Driven Company

Our Business Philosophy

We respect the interests of all stakeholders—employees, the local community, and the environment.

Creating Equity

We run our business using an employee-ownership approach that gives everyone a say in how the business operates and benefits from its success.

Empowering Everyone

When everyday citizens own their own micro-power plants, the financial benefits of energy production will be distributed to a wider spectrum of society.

Leveling the Playing Field

Our web app gives small installers access to the types of tools that only large companies can afford to develop.

We’re Fiercely Independent

We’re committed to remaining a privately-owned company. We believe this is the best way for us to help create an energy economy that works for everyone.
