About Us

Solar States was founded in 2008 based on the ideas found in Van Jones’ book, “The Green Collar Economy”. We are the on ramp for inner city residents looking to find jobs in the solar industry. As a result of our founding ethos we have a dual mission to install solar and educate the next generation of solar installers. After establishing our headquarters in Philadelphia, PA, we began installing solar for such institutions as the Community College of Philadelphia and Swarthmore College. We also began teaching our solar curriculum, Find Your Power, at YouthBuild Philly Charter School, Ben Franklin High School, and Randolph High School. We have completed over 500 projects for residential and commercial clients, impacted hundreds of students through our curriculum and job placement, and hired a number of these students ourselves. We are a certified B Corp that was named “Best for the World” in 2018. Solar States is a full-service Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) solar installation firm.
