Go Solar Team Members and Company History
Go Solar Group is a residential solar installation company headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, with additional brick and mortar locations in Reno, Nevada; and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Founded in 2011, the company initially provided solar power in Africa, giving a 1:1 purchase opportunity to off-the-grid areas in Uganda and Zambia through its GiveSolar humanitarian program now known as 1heart1mind.
Since establishing itself as an authority on battery backup, industry news, solar products, and solar companies via the Go Solar Group blog, the company has since partnered with Titan Solar Power, expanding its installation capacity to Arizona, Colorado, Florida, California, Missouri, Illinois, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Mississippi.
Go Solar Group believes solar energy can provide economic empowerment to people, and lives this mission each day, striving to leverage solar to improve global health, educational opportunity, economic empowerment, and energy independence. Since the beginning, the business goal for Go Solar Group has been simple — bring affordable, quality residential solar products to our Go Solar Group customers.
