Lower Energy Costs for Homeowners and Businesses

Solar power allows homeowners and businesses to lock in what they pay for power. A typical solar system will provide power for more than 25 years. When you own your power generation, and that power generation has a guaranteed power output for 25 years, your cost for the power never goes up. No utility will ever be able to make that same promise. Add a battery to your solar system, and you have protection from power outages. We believe giving people the ability to take control of their own power can give families and businesses a way to control rising expenses and overhead.

Energy Security to Protect Against Grid Outages with Battery

When solar is installed with a battery, our customers have protection again grid reliability issues and outages. With batteries, our customers can weather the storms that mother nature deals as well as other grid disruptions.

Making the Most of Advancing Technology

The technologies of solar power, solar battery storage, and electric vehicles are changing by the day and month. Because of this, we have to change and adapt almost constantly as product and engineering approaches evolve and improve. We love working in a new and fresh industry that is reshaping the world. And so, we take pride in being at the forefront of new energy technology and helping others safely embark on that journey with us. 

Better Jobs for People:

We love being part of the transitioning energy industry. The old ways of producing and distributing power have been static for 125 years. Now there is a better way, and we are leading the charge to implement solar in the south and midwest. At Solar Energy Solutions, we believe helping our team members learn a new trade that supports the changing energy landscape and is also a secure and well-paid skilled job for life is a joy. Solar installers are the #1 job growth category in the US! We run this business to build a new energy economy where our families and we can feel like we make a real difference for customers as they take control of their energy costs while making the environment better. 

Better for the World:

Solar Energy Solutions has chosen to be at the forefront of the rapid rise of solar power to help consumers take control of their energy and address challenges to the status quo with a self-sufficient energy solution. Producing your own power is better for the world in many ways. Most recently, we have seen how world events, such as pandemics and wars, can greatly affect the availability of many things, including the fuel that our utilities need to create power. That uncertainty means price volatility and other disruptions which impact people’s lives and the environment.

Increasing severe weather events around our region affect energy security and prices. This is because any additional cost utilities must pay to repair their facilities or lines after a weather event is passed on to consumers. Over time, reduced CO2 emissions from solar will help slow the increase in severe weather events that result in droughts, floods, and wildfires. Right now, solar plus batteries will help to keep customers homes and/or businesses running.


Be Ethical:

At SES, we manage our conduct by doing what is right for people, our region, and the profession we love.

Show Respect:

At SES, we treat our customers, and each other, with acceptance, courtesy, and respect due to any member of our community. We want to earn their business with our expertise, experience, and ethical approach to solar. 

Pursue Learning:

At SES, we are stewards of a new and rapidly growing industry. And so, as leaders in our field, it is our responsibility to continue our education and remain informed and acquainted with the latest technologies and methods of our craft. 

Embrace The Details:

At SES, we are in a technical field where the smallest parts are critical to the success and 25+ year life of the whole system. Therefore, from design to installation and from people to the product, the details matter, and we pay attention to them to ensure our success for our customers. 

Think Design:

At SES, our best work begins before we even lift a tool. Anyone can learn to install a panel, but we design and engineer systems. That means skillfully having a vision for the intended results, planning the best path to get there, and making it safely last a lifetime. 

Go The Extra Mile:

At SES, we will over-deliver when we can, providing our customers with more than their money’s worth. Likewise, we work hard to give advice and support that goes beyond our customers’ expectations to be as thorough as possible and deliver the best long-term solution. Therefore, if we make a mistake, we own it and correct it to your satisfaction. 

Advocate, Advocate, Advocate:

At SES, we work to protect the solar rights of our customers at the regional, state, and local level. Consequently, we place our resources, people, and voice behind the industry’s continued growth and success. Our passion and enthusiasm stem from knowing our political advocacy efforts not only ensure our industry but also solidify the confidence our customers have in solar as a long-term solution.
