HPE only uses the best components available and specifically designs its solar systems to withstand the desert’s extreme temperatures so that HPE’s systems are still hitting their marks after 25 years with minimal maintenance, which translates to tens of thousands of dollars worth of savings for our customers. Our integration crew includes licensed general contractors and electricians, journeyman electricians, carpenters, roofers and drywallers; our team has over 100 years combined construction experience, more than 30 of which is solar-specific.

When it comes to energy solutions, one size does not fit all. HPE is a design-oriented company that will tailor its systems to provide the greatest return without offending your property’s pre-existing aesthetic. Whether you would benefit from rooftop or carport mounted arrays, or whether your business is for-profit or non-profit, or whether you want to purchase, finance or lease a system; HPE provides aesthetically appropriate designs and finishes that comprehensively address your energy and financial needs. HPE’s mark can be seen (or, as the case may be, not seen) throughout the Coachella Valley from the College of the Desert, Las Casuelas Terraza and the Gerald Ford and Abernathy Estates to new developments such as the Morrison, Escena and Monte Sereno, in addition to hundreds of your neighbors’ houses.

Industry Leaders

At HPE we are so confident in our superior designs, components and installation techniques that we back every project with our industry-leading labor and production guarantees, which require HPE not only to repair any and all defects in installation or workmanship at no cost to the customers for 20 years, but to reimburse our customers in cash in the event that their systems do not hit their guaranteed production numbers every year for the first 10 years as well. 

We also monitor all of our customers systems on a weekly basis, so that we can detect and remedy minor issues before they can have a major impact on production.


At HPE, we believe that the 21st century will see fossil fuels either replaced entirely or largely supplanted by free and unlimited solar energy, and that as more and more individuals and businesses take control of their energy futures, burning fossil fuels for power will one day be as antiquated as hunting whales for oil. 

We look forward to tailoring a comprehensive energy solution that will reduce your existing overhead and protect you against energy price fluctuations and spikes within the parameters of your individualized needs.

Solar Panel Installers | Palm Desert, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Indio, and all of Coachella Valley.


Solar home installations are expanding throughout the Coachella Valley because solar truly saves homeowners on energy costs.

We will review your electric usage, your solar potential, energy-saving options, as well as the various ways to get into solar: cash purchase, finance, pre-paid, and monthly leases.
