Atascadero Solar Installer

Atascadero has just over 1,700 solar energy homes to date, second only to Paso Robles in the county. By the end of 2025, we estimate that close to 50% of the owner-occupied homes in Atascadero will have solar, resulting in one of the highest per-capita solar install rates in the nation. 

Solarponics, located in Atascadero, was voted best solar value in the North County nine years in a row. Founded in 1975 by Mike Emrich, Atascadero resident and Cal Poly engineering grad, Solarponics is also the oldest solar company in California.

Today, Solarponics is led by Kristian Emrich who has set a vision of every building on the central coast having a net-zero energy and resource consumption footprint. To help achieve this, Solarponics installs solar electric, battery storage and backup, solar pool heating, radiant heating and cooling, solar and heat pump water heating systems, pool heating, and water conservation systems for residential and commercial projects.
