Our work building solar in Appalachia is building a buzz!

INSTALLATION

DESIGN & ANALYSIS

At Solar Holler, we're incredibly proud of the work we do.  Every system we design and build is nothing less than a work of art.  We've brought together a talented, passionate team of designers, electricians, trainers, logistics aficionados, and financial and policy wonks.  


Our mission is to build beautiful solar systems that will save you money for decades. From design to installation to monitoring,  Solar Holler will help you through every step of the process.  


We'll design and engineer the perfect system for your home and needs, while working with you to figure out a payment plan that makes solar affordable for your family.  Then our team of trained, professional, and talented electricians and installers will leave you with a beautiful, reliable solar array that saves you money decade after decade.

How Solar Holler works for you

MONITORING

Solar for your Home

Across Appalachia, we're working with dozens of families this year to help them mine the sun for clean energy to affordably power their homes and lives.  


From system design to engineering to affordable financing to installation, we're the experts in helping West Virginian families go solar with no upfront cost.

Solar at Work

Whether you're an architect, a mechanic, or a farmer, Solar Holler can help you cut your business's energy bills, allowing you to reinvest in what matters for your business. We work with businesses of all sizes to figure out what makes sense. From design and installation, to deciphering federal tax credits, USDA grants, and utility incentives, we can help.

Solar in the Community

Solar Holler got its start developing award-winning and groundbreaking financing programs for West Virginia's churches, libraries, and other non-profits.  It wasn't an after-thought.


Helping community organizations do more good is at the center of everything we do. From solar to energy efficiency, we line up the financing, install and maintain the equipment, and work with organizations so that they can devote their resources to their mission, not to electricity bills.

For more than a century, Appalachians have given everything to power America. Now it's time for us to do it again, with clean energy.


Solar Holler builds training and apprenticeship opportunities into every single project.  Through our nationally-recognized apprenticeship program that we launched with the non-profit Coalfield Development Corporation,  young people from Mingo, Wayne, Lincoln, and Cabell Counties earn their NABCEP solar credentials, their electrical apprenticeships, and a college degree (all for free) while learning on the job with Solar Holler.
