Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions was launched in 2015 as an LED lighting focused company that quickly transitioned into the solar industry. The company offers residential and commercial solar options to property owners in the Southeast region of the United States.
The founder of Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions is retired USAF, Leland “Woody” Fields. Fields started out by selling LED lighting packages in the commercial and industrial spaces all throughout the Southeast. His time in the lighting industry allowed Fields to become acquainted with solar and its associated benefits.
Furthering the mission to provide energy efficient solutions to North and South Carolina residents, Fields re-branded his company to include sustainable energy solutions outside of lighting — most notably solar installation. Today, Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions employs over 50 people and offers solar services in three states.
Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions is certified by two notable organizations within the solar industry, including Pearl Certification and the NABCEP. Professional installers with Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions have been trained and are well-equipped to handle any residential or commercial solar project.
Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions offers prospective and current clients a free in-home energy analysis which provides prospective customers with key information to determine what energy system is ideal for the property.
This analysis, which could be valued at several hundred dollars, is entirely free of cost and remarkably educational for the property owner. The data provided in this analysis will help clients see in real figures what solar can do in terms of money saving while simultaneously potentially adding value to the property.
Many solar installation companies will consider work to be done as soon as the system is installed and operational. That is not the case with Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions. The company will provide regular maintenance work to ensure that the system is producing at an efficient level.
When most people think of solar, they imagine the system installed on the roof of a property to produce energy. However, not all roofs are structured in a way where a roof-mounted system would be conducive. Unfortunately, most solar installation companies solely offer roof mounted systems.
To accommodate all roof types, Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions provides both ground-mounted and roof-mounted options to clients. For properties where a ground-mounted system makes more sense, the company is able to meet those needs. This is not the case with every solar installation company in the industry.
In order to provide a highly efficient solar service, installation companies must have access to tier-1 solar equipment. Some solar installation companies become dealers of just one manufacturer while others try to shop around without making equipment partnerships. Ideally, a solar installation company will have high level relationships with a number of solar providers in order to give clients multiple options when it comes to solar design. Sustainable Energy and LIghting Solutions has done just that partnering with the following solar production operations:
By having multiple solar equipment partnerships, Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions has access to a wide range of equipment producers without having to pay increased costs with solar companies that do solar shopping on an individual basis.
Solar companies generally provide services in a relatively small geographic location. Only a few solar installation companies have found ways to expand into multiple states while still using an in-house staff. Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions is one of these companies. Currently, Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions offers solar services in the following states:
The company also has plans of expansions.
Some solar installation companies are turning to solar batteries and storage solutions to combat power outage issues. Solar installation companies will install either a battery or storage system that is compatible with the solar system.
Sustainable Energy and Lighting Solutions provides generator backup solutions, but not solar efficient solutions like a battery or storage system.
