Sky Power Systems installs solar systems designed to meet customers’ individual needs.

Sky Power Systems has been designing and installing solar-electric systems for Bay Area homes and businesses since 2001. The company handles all phases of its clients’ solar projects, including design, permits, installation, maintenance and PG&E interconnection paperwork.

President Bob Winn sees Sky Power Systems as a boutique, custom-style solar shop—each system is specifically designed to meet the individual customer’s needs. The company’s installation teams treat each project as if they’re working on their own homes, says Mr. Winn, with attention to detail and a focus on reliability, performance, and appearance.

Sky Power Systems takes pride in being selected as one of the few SunPower Elite Dealers. SunPower makes high-performance solar panels that deliver up to 50 percent more power than conventional panels and are more reliable over the long run. “They’re also the best-looking solar panels around and have the best warranty,” says Mr. Winn. “We’re very aware of the appearance of what we install, focusing on both aesthetics and high performance.” To view examples of Sky Power Systems’ past and recent projects, read customer testimonials or find out how to get a free site evaluation, Mr. Winn invites people to visit
