Welcome to!

The solar industry is one of the fastest growing industries, with Photovoltaics (PV) continuing to be the largest component of solar market growth in the U.S.  With expected installations in 2012 to equal 3.3GW, the U.S. is poised to continue to be a prominent force in the global PV market. Because of this rate of growth, its important that we focus on creating the most knowledgeable and proficient solar professionals to enter the market.

It's one thing to be able to put solar panels on the roof, but a solar professional that understands the science, technology, and theory that puts it there is placed in a category above the rest.  It is my goal to help you get there. ~Michael
