About Us

Solar Veterans


We can’t boast about being the most gargantuan company around, but we can deliver exceptional education, fast installation and rockstar treatment to each and every customer. We’ve been in business since 2009 which pretty much makes us veterans. We’ve seen a lot, and we share that expertise to help you choose the best options for your personal situation.

We set out to help you create the most stellar solar solution for your home. Your happiness means we’ve done it right.

It’s never been easier to Plug into the Sun and take advantage of clean, more affordable solar power!

Going solar at your home seems complicated, but Earth Electric makes it simple. Since 2009, we’ve been informing those in San Jose, Santa Cruz, Morgan Hill, Los Altos and throughout the Bay Area about the benefits of solar power. From the initial phone call to continued customer service and assistance following installation, Earth Electric is the company to choose.

Delivering happiness, one customer at a time ›

“I contacted 3 companies, and Sheryl was the first one to respond. She talked with me, giving me lots of information. She was friendly, funny, and professional, and very warm and kind to my little ones. Sheryl immediately followed up with an estimate and was so lovely to deal with and I truly felt that she wanted my business, and that I was in good hands.”

– Emily L. from Campbell, CA
