From Small Beginnings Comes Greatness

Although it may seem as if POWERHOME SOLAR has come out of nowhere, like all true success stories, ours involves dedication, passion and a lot of hard work. An American company that uses American-made solar panels, POWERHOME SOLAR launched in 2014. Since then, we have grown from 15 employees to over 2,000 and have become one of the leading residential solar providers in all our markets. At POWERHOME SOLAR, we have a saying, Building A Movement®, which accurately reflects not only our culture, but our beliefs in creating a better environment.

Our Growth over the Years

This change has spurred our growth from 15 employees in 2015 to 2,000-plus passionate employees. But we don’t plan on stopping there. Although we began and are still based in Mooresville, North Carolina, we have expanded our reach across 14 additional states -- Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

It took a lot of dedication and hard work to get where we are now. Imagine, a small operation serving 110 customers in 2015 and growing to what the chart shows to the right. We’re not just growing little by little each year, we are growing exponentially to meet strong consumer demand for solar energy.

With all this growth, we’ve never lost sight of our mission: Building A Movement®, by installing solar panels on as many homes and businesses as possible. Our goal is to create an affordable solar-powered future for our families and as many families in America as we can.

Awards, Accolades and Achievements

In 2020, we were ranked No. 255 on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, marking the third time in four years that we were in the top 300 on this esteemed list. We were ranked No. 7 nationally among residential solar installers by Solar Power World in 2020, making us the No. 1 residential solar company in the Southeast and Midwest. Not content to stop at installing solar panels on homes, we formally rolled out a commercial division in Michigan (2019).

We have forged partnerships with 3 pro football teams (Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers), another with baseball's Cleveland Indians, and one more with NC State Athletics. We also have A+ ratings with the BBB in all of our markets.

Giving Back to the Community

Not only have we expanded our reach and increased solar installations, we’ve also expanded our presence in the communities we serve. In the summer of 2020, we joined forces with Lifetime TV’s “Military Makeover” to donate and install a solar system for a deserving veteran in Dacula, Georgia. This was the second time POWERHOME SOLAR has been featured on “Military Makeover,” with our first appearance coming in 2018.

Our mission to make the lives of those in our community better doesn’t stop there. POWERHOME SOLAR routinely donates to charitable causes involving children, families and the military. We have sponsored former Detroit Tigers star Justin Verlander and wife Kate Upton’s Patriot Ruck, a walk along Detroit’s riverfront that honors the sacrifices made by military members, veterans and first responders in serving our nation. POWERHOME SOLAR has also donated thousands to support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Toys for Tots, Gobble Gobble Give and more. POWERHOME SOLAR takes pride in helping those who are less fortunate or are simply intent on doing good deeds for the community.

Our robust growth supports our vision to revolutionize how we run our company and serve customers. We are one of a handful of companies that do it all. We sell, finance, design, pull permits, and install solar panels and energy systems for residential and commercial applications.

We have a strong drive to make sure each job is completed properly — the first time. And unlike many of our competitors, we do not hire subcontractors. We employ licensed electricians and we have unlimited general contractors and electrical license.

Our purpose and mission is to give our customers the option of achieving energy independence by offering clean, renewable energy at affordable prices. While power companies regularly raise rates and control how much customers pay for power, we provide a more practical solution. We want to set up our customers with the chance to potentially save money while ensuring a clean future for all.
