Our Services


We install the future every day by making quality, safe solar installations affordable. Founders Jack Ailey and Dorian Breuer have set a goal of 100,000 solar installations in Illinois. Residential installations qualify for a 26% Federal tax credit, SREC income and other savings.


By installing a solar electric system you are buying your electricity for the next 25 years in advance. In a few years you will have made back the cost of installation. For the rest of the life of the system, you will get free electricity.


Global warming has already caused serious damage both here in the U.S. and around the world. We need to move away from burning fossil fuels as rapidly as possible. Getting some or all of your electric power from the sun is a great way to help.
