Solar Installation in Johnson Valley CA

Solar energy is the most abundant renewable energy source in the world. Solar energy systems employ technologies that convert the sun's heat or light to another form of energy for use. There are two categories of technologies that harness solar energy, Solar Photovoltaics and Solar Thermal. Solar Photovoltaic, or PV, is a technology that converts sunlight into direct current electricity. Using 2 layers of semiconductors similar to a battery. Of the two layers, one layer is negatively charged while the other positive; these layers are protected by 2 outer shields made from special glass. The semiconductor absorbs photons for the radiation from the sun and transforms it into direct current power(DC) from there, your inverter further converts that energy into alternating current(AC) directly to your home outlet.

In contrast, Solar Thermal is a technology that utilizes the heat energy from the sun for heating or electricity production. Solar is a renewable resource and does not emit any greenhouse gases. However, efficiency and intermittency are not flawless since sunlight is dependent on location, season and time of day, harnessing the energy from the sun is a blessing and one you should take advantage of for your future.

How To Get Started

Start With The Survey

Quite literally, beginning your Sol Power journey is as easy as picking up your phone and giving us a call. The first step will be for us to schedule a SURVEY. After we’ve reviewed your utility bill for the previous twelve months of usage, we are able to sit down and establish exactly how much solar power your household is going to use each year. This enables us to determine how many solar panels will be needed to meet your unique usage needs. We also check out your home’s roof and Meter/Breaker Box, and from there, begin your design!


Next, we design your panel placements; we partner together to figure out where the panels are placed for optimal solar energy production and an appealing aesthetic. Obviously, the most important factor is that the panels are receiving as much energy from the sun as possible. However, we also know that no homeowner wants their castle to look like an eyesore! So a sleek & sexy design that maintains curb appeal with maximal sun exposure is a win-win!


After your survey and determining your panel design, we submit everything to the county for a permit, receive approval, and move on to installation! Once your new solar panels are installed and deemed ready, you will receive permission to operate (PTO) and voila! You’ve gone solar! We serve Johnson Valley CA, Apple Valley CA, Phelan CA, Oak Hills CA, Lucerne Valley CA, Oro Grande CA, and Bell Mountain CA.
