Our proven track record shows we have the education and experience necessary to install the best solar system for you.

My love for the diverse landscape of our country inspires me to make renewable energy the new way of life in the USA. I am committed to keeping America the land of the beautiful! What is more beautiful than mountains to climb and energy independence? 

My goal is to help people realize and harness the power of the sun, and contribute to moving our country’s energy production to local renewable sources. This is good for your pocketbook and the environment, plus it takes energy out of the mix of politics.

What People Are Saying

I recently had a 5.8KW solar PV system installed on my roof. I used Carlson Solar as my solar contractor. From the very start, during the period I was getting quotes from multiple contractors, I was very happy with his openness and the time he spent in explaining how things work. Early on I got the sense that he wouldn't sell me anything more than what I needed and he well understood my concerns about the aesthetics. Even his quote was extremely competitive with the other contractors. When I finally commited and the installation began, I was pleased with the effort they put in. There was one day where they even got on the roof in a very small window prior to a thunderstorm. Today, I have my system installed and I keep checking the energy production on a daily basis. I am happy with the parts we used that makes this possible. If you are looking for high quality solar installation, Rob Carlson is the person to speak to.
