It all started when…

In October of 2017, Dan lost his home to a wildfire. When looking for a builder to rebuild the home he discovered first hand that most regional and custom home builders across the U.S. are unable to offer solar or energy storage systems as part of their new home construction package. The company partners with boutique, custom, prefabricated and regional home builders to design and integrate comprehensive Solar Energy Management System into the construction of their client’s new homes.

Exponent Solar Energy has a leadership team with executive-level experience in multi-national companies, with a focus on operational excellence and client fulfillment. Solar experience ranging from equipment distribution to project development, turn-key engineering, equipment procurement, construction, commissioning, and post-construction operations & maintenance for large multi-family projects at military bases and commercial projects across several states.
