No sooner did I place my order and the seller had sent me an email letting me know it was shipped. This is the type of place I like to deal with— Joseph
WOW FAST Shipping. I Got my product in less than 3 days. I ordered 4 things and 3 of them were from Amazon and 1 from this seller. His came first and 6 days later I am still waiting on 2 of the Amazon products— Clay
It's a good feeling to see my "clean energy machine" (solar system) doing its thing!— Jean
Simple Energy Works was quick to respond and easy to work with. Their Current Cost Energy Monitor allowed us at Washington University to run a low-budget dorm energy competition amongst our students!— Will Fischer, Sustainability Director, Washington University
Simple Energy Works made the whole Solar System design and installation process super easy for me, conducted themselves with integrity, and made obtaining documents and appropriate Solar Grants timely and flawless. I strongly recommend this company to everyone who is thinking of purchasing a Solar Energy System.— Thomas Nosarzewski, Owner
It takes a bit of a leap of faith to invest in new technology when I bought my custom ground mount PV solar system from Simple Energy Works, but they were very helpful throughout the process from start to finish.— Jean Cheely
I got it in 5 days with the free shipping. The unit works great. We are able to see the power being used when items get turned off and on in seconds.— Harry R
Randy Velker at Simple Energy Works was very helpful. After purchasing a solar system kit from Simple Energy Works, the solar system was very easy to install. I had to call Randy with a question, and our problem was solved 1,2,3! Now I'm expanding our system three fold, and Simple Energy Works will definitely get our business again!— Ted Polczynski

We have recently formed an agreement with the patent holder as an exclusive supplier of portable premade solar buildings. These buildings are made in a factory setting so that we can control all of the quality and construction issues. … Continue reading
These bulbs are LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) which means that they are a fully wired system and have no elements (which are the part of the bulb that burns out). These LED bulbs have soldered diodes that give off … Continue reading
1. Step one. Develop and publicize a “beneficial” solar program. Accept accolades for being a “solar proponent.” TVA has for the past few years been fine tuning and running a solar program in the Tennessee Valley. This program started small, … Continue reading
Lawrence Livermore Laboratory released it’s 2011 energy usage flow chart graphic… And it is amazing. It looks overwhelmingly complicated at first, but once you have looked at it for a while and figured out what the image is portraying it … Continue reading
When TVA transitioned over from their previous “pilot” solar program (which has been running for the past 4 years) on October 1st, 2012 they made some significant changes. The primary ones having to do with the allowable sizes of PV … Continue reading
All good things must come to an end. And TVA has again changed their Generation Partner Program. They have publicly stated that they are making the change over from a “pilot program” to a “regular program”. I have previously explained … Continue reading
For the past few years those of us in the solar industry in Tennessee (make that all of TVA’s area) have been trying to figure out how to provide third party financing for the solar systems that we install. With … Continue reading
I can’t really stand politics. It is like the ultimate “reality TV” show ever invented. There is no way that I could even make up some of the stuff that routinely passes for news in our politically charged country. But … Continue reading
How can one compare the available renewable energy technologies with the current energy mix? It’s not that easy. After honing our skills as “bargain hunters” we learn that some bargains are not at all what they appear to be! An … Continue reading
This past Thursday we did a short presentation on Clean Renewable energy to all of the 5th graders in Cumberland County. It is a pretty short presentation, so I have compiled the photos and will take you on a short … Continue reading
