About Us

Panel Powered was founded in 2013 with one goal in mind, Solar.

About Panel Power

Panel Power was started in 2013 to show that solar power can be an economically viable alternative to electric utilities. Solar energy is a viable solution to other energy resources that are not only finite but also detrimental to the human race in general. We don’t have to look too far to see the devastating effects of fossil fuel pollution.

Panel Power has gathered some of the finest people in this field who all share the same passion to help protect the earth. These are dedicated engineers and designers whose collective vision sees beyond the day-to-day and into our children’s future.



Solar is the future.

What are the barriers to more widespread solar panel use? Price? Efficiency? Durability? Solar panels have improved dramatically from what was available just 5 years ago. Panel Power’s mission is to educate energy consumers and help them make solid buying decisions that will compete with grid supplied energy. The point is to not only conserve natural resources but to save money for customers by combining solar with other energy saving strategies.

The main focus at Panel Power is to provide energy alternatives to businesses that own their own building. This enables Panel Power to make a larger impact with each project. Rebates and tax incentives can ease the transition to renewable energy but Panel Power’s goal is to offer a mix of energy saving technologies that will make solar energy a viable cost effective solution on its own.
The people at Panel Power realize that they may not see the final fulfillment of their dreams. Ultimately, Panel Power is not thinking about themselves but about future generations.
