Sun Light & Power has delivered exceptional customer experience to Bay Area customers for 45 years. From the early days of solar thermal, through the rise of PV and into the age of lithium battery storage, we have continued to design and build high quality solar systems. Sun Light & Power’s team of employee-owners serve a wide range of commercial, non-profit, municipal and residential clients. Sun Light & Power was one of the first companies in the state to become incorporated as a Benefit Corporation (known as a B Corp) and is also a certified Alameda County Green Business. We became a 100% employee owned (ESOP) in 2018. The 2022 ESOP Board of Directors are Gary Gerber, Barbara Gerber, Sudhir Aggarwal, Martin Morehouse, Elvira Didic, Raye Martin and Seamas Brennan.
The goal of Sun Light & Power is to provide exceptional customer experience. We are committed to making a positive difference by providing solar solutions with quality products, tenured expertise and flawless execution. We practice sustainable business methods to grow our company, support our team members and the community we serve.
In 1976, when engineer and solar pioneer Gary Gerber founded Sun Light & Power, the solar energy industry was in its infancy. Since then he has helped assemble one of the solar industry’s most talented teams. We bring to each project unparalleled expertise, innovative solutions, energy-efficient solar technologies, and outstanding customer service, making us one of the best solar power companies in the country.
