Founded in 2007, Good Energy Solutions has earned a reputation of expert reliable service, long workmanship warranties, and quality through commercial and residential installations that focus on renewable energy efficiency measures and electrical services. Kevin Good started Good Energy Solutions in 2007. He wanted to build a company that not only installed solar but educated consumers on energy solutions and which solutions would best benefit them. Unfortunately, as with any business there are solar and energy system installers that make huge claims simply to sell a system. Kevin ran across many consumers that had purchased Wind Towers and Solar Photovoltaic Systems that were not generating the amount of energy they were promised. Kevin set out to give the industry a good name. He has made a commitment to providing systems that generate at least as much, if not more, energy that is quoted on our bids.

Our Dedication to Quality
We are engineers and craftsmen designing for efficiency and installing with aesthetics and longevity in mind. Because of our installation quality and customer service, Good Energy Solutions has been selected by SunPower to be an Elite Dealer. SunPower solar modules come with the longest warranties in the solar industry and we have committed to servicing our customers with long warranties as well. Although we can provide you solar equipment for a smaller budget, it's important to know that we take pride and care of all of our installations to bring you complete satisfaction. Our background is in engineering, construction, and manufacturing so our solar and wind designs and installations are seamless.
Our combination of hands on experience, education and outstanding customer service makes our company the clear choice to help you achieve your energy goals. A properly designed solar or wind system won't work if it is installed incorrectly, and a perfectly installed solar or wind system might not perform well if it is not designed properly. We can deliver on all fronts by educating you on your best renewable energy options, designing the proper solar or wind system and installing it for many decades of low maintenance energy production. Let our experience and long warranties put your mind at ease. See some of our commercial and residential installations.
