Our Testimonials

We Understand all too well how Daunting a Home Improvement can be. We also Understand how much Misinformation is out there Regarding Solar.

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.

When you are in a business where attention to detail is critical to success-from construction through design- choosing the right partner becomes paramount. Working with Hot Purple Energy on our projects affords us the peace of mind that things will be done to the highest level, not just the first time, but every time. After working with HPE over so many years we finally had them install solar panels on our personal home last year. We could not be more pleased. And with HPE you don’t have to choose form over function and in our business aesthetics are a high priority. We could not imagine working with anyone else.

Everyone at HPE works as a seamless team to provide the solutions that worked for us. Owning a Mid-Century Meiselman house in Palm Springs, the care they took to place the system in such a way to maximize its efficiency and so that it is unseen from both the street and the backyard demonstrated their commitment to meet the unique requirements of the site.

We recently had solar installed by HPE. The entire process from start to finish totally exceeded expectations. From the initial consultation to the final completion of the install everything was done professionally, timely and with great ongoing communication throughout the process…. plus it was done in a friendly and courteous manner. We couldn’t be happier and the power being generated in our first week up and running is better than expected. The other thing to note is they made it effortless on our part…they worked with the HOA, city and SCE to do all the paperwork/approvals, etc. to get things started. This company has got it right! If you are considering solar you owe it to yourself to contact HPE! It was not a pressure sale by any means but informative and factual. Every single person we interacted with was awesome! How often does that happen?! Thanks HPE!

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!



While we will want to visit your home to see first hand your roof condition, view lines, and electrical equipment, we can give you a ballpark idea of your costs and options over the phone or via email.
