About Us

We are a small company, dedicated to designing, installing and maintaining reliable off-grid systems in the very most remote and difficult locations around the globe. All of our staff have lived off the grid for at least 10 years. We know a lot about the challenges and rewards of remote, off-grid systems...and we learn more with every new job.

If you need a system that ties into the grid but can still provide backup power to your critical loads, we'd also be happy to help you. This is a very common situation for self-sufficient folks who want all the modern conveniences, but still remained prepared for extended grid outages.

We also provide NABCEP / IREC registered training classes for individuals, companies and organizations. Inquire for more information.
