Superior Products


Solaria® manufactures the highest quality solar systems in the world. An American company founded in Fresno, California in 2000, helping people to change the way our world is powered. Their unique technology delivers one of the most efficient solar panels on Earth, perfect for getting the most energy production so that you can offset up to 100% of your electric bill.
The Solaria warranty is the best. Our competitors claim their panels are warrantied for 25 years, but you may find the fine print has lots of loopholes. 25 years maybe what is conveyed but many other companies have warranties that are usually just 10 years and shipping or labor to remove/install is not covered at all. Solaria's warranty is all-inclusive… and for a full 25 years.

Sol-Ark is a veteran-owned engineering company with the mission of helping families be less dependent on our vulnerable power grid in an affordable way. To build the best in solar generators, the company was formed by many engineers who specialize in solar, electrical, mechanical, and nuclear engineering. Together, they have rewritten the book on solar generators. They design their own patent-pending electronics and systems that are tested on automated test stations. The Sol-Ark system was named “The most well thought out solar generator on the market” in 2016

Fortress Power has proudly serviced homeowners and commercial clients worldwide. Their Pennsylvania-based team’s passion for clean energy storage has earned them a place among the world’s top energy storage battery manufacturers. They pride themselves on bringing businesses and households energy storage products they can depend on, built from only the highest quality, highest powered lithium ferrite phosphate batteries.
