Our Experience

A1 Sun provides quality service because we know and use technologies that are proven. In addition, we constantly research and test innovative ideas. From photovoltaic (PV) to solar domestic hot water (SDHW) to electric vehicle charging stations to networked system monitoring, we have a wealth of experience. We design and install lasting, reliable, long term performance.

After A1 Sun analyzes your site parameters, we design and build the optimal size system you require. Commercial installations are a growing segment of our business. We are easy to work with. Business owners, architects, contractors and management companies are discovering how well our systems perform. A1 Sun serves each client with the same dedication to individual attention that has provided the foundation of our business.

Our Commitment to the Planet

An Alameda County Certified Green Business since our first year in business, we are 100% solar powered. Solar photovoltaic arrays, power our office and charge our electric vehicles. Evacuated tube thermal collectors heat our water. We will soon upgrade our grey water recycling system. We install the same components for our clients that we use ourselves. Our commitment to the environment extends beyond what we do, to how we do it. We precycle, then recycle everything that is possible to recycle. We minimize waste and appropriately dispose of what we cannot recycle.

We Invest in Youth and the Community

By example, A1 Sun actively promotes solar education and small business growth in the East Bay. We believe it is important to support the next generation. We open up as many opportunities as we can to young skilled workers within our local community, including interns and graduates from Berkeley High School, the Richmond BUILD program and others.
