Our Story

Our interest in energy independence began when we moved our family to a home on acreage in Redding in 1999. Bruce partnered with a home builder in 2001, putting solar electric systems on new construction homes. In 2003, Bruce and Sue launched PowerHouse Solar, and started providing Photovoltaic (PV) power to homeowners. This makes us the oldest solar company in the area to do so.

Early in our career, the market was flooded with cheap, sub-par solar systems, prone to failure. All of our competitors offered them, but we wanted to do something different. Our philosophy has been to sell the very best product on the market.

In 2005, SunPower, impressed by our commitment to quality, made us the exclusive provider of SunPower products in the Redding area. As an Elite dealer, we deal directly with the manufacturer – no distributors, no middlemen. Since then, we have focused intensively on providing consumers with these panels. Hands-down, they are the best solar panels available today.
