Local Solar Company Advantage


We’re Trusted.
We were born in San Luis Obispo and raised in Atascadero. We do not sub-contract. We employ all of our own, local install crews, for complete complete quality control and accountability. You call a local number, not an 800 number, which mens more personal attention and faster service for greater savings.


Most Experienced.
43 years in the solar business and over 5,000 solar installs has taught us what works and what doesn’t. We know every local roof type, every mounting system, every panel manufacturer. And many of our employees have been with us over 10 years. That’s longer than some solar companies have been in business.


Greatest Savings.
Our goal is to help people become more energy independent, save money and enrich their lives. We have long-term relationships with manufacturers and distributors, which means better equipment, which means greater savings. We service all of our own systems, which means fast response, and warranty fulfillment, which means greater uptime, which means greater savings.

Don’t just go solar. Go Solarponics and save more. Call now. (805) 466-5595
