We understand all too well how daunting a home improvement can be. We also understand how much misinformation is out there regarding solar.Hot Purple Energy Truck

It seems every day we see a new company trying to green wash a poor solar proposal or finance scheme. The only way we know how to compete with these realities are to do excellent work and be 100% truthful every step of the way.

We also take care and pride in our community involvement. We are local. Meaning we are here for the long term and are not going to try to cut corners are shave the truth to sell a deal. This is a 25 plus year commitment on our part and we mean it.

We want our clients and neighbors to be well informed and up to date on the technology and the realities of energy for them and our community.

We will bend over backwards for you and are here to help in any way we can.

Thank you for your time and trust. We don’t take either lightly.


Interviewed all the local solar dealers, HPE won hands down! Designed the best system, perfect installation and great follow up! LOVE IT!!!

March 14, 2013 Our installation was a little complicated. We live in a classic mid-century Palm Springs home and wanted to retain the appearance as much as possible. Nate created a plan and worked with our roofer to install a new roof along with the solar panels. Everything went perfectly. It’s been 1 year now and we couldn’t be happier with our system. It is producing more than enough electricity to power our home. In May 2012, we leased the all electric BMW and charge it exclusively at the house. Our annual reconciled 2012 electric bill was less then $1500.00! The savings from not buying gasoline anymore has reduced our ROI to 5 years.

Professional, experienced and do what they promise – Nate Otto, CEO, and his team are experienced, professional and go out of their way to ensure that their installation is PERFECT. Everything they said would happen did. They thoroughly explained what was involved and what we could expect. Frankly, I can’t recommend them more highly.


Solar for homes is growing in popularity throughout the Coachella Valley because it truly saves homeowners money.

None of our clients who have gone solar would opt to go back to paying for, more expensive utility-supplied power.  So, if you have “electric bills,” available roof space, and plan to own your home for more than 5 years, then let’s start our complimentary review.

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.

We provide solar in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, and all the Coachella Valley surrounding cities. We look forward to working with you!
