Community Power Builders

Solar Power – Energy Storage – Microgrids

We deliver the best combination of affordability and independence, while keeping our customers’ project goals as a first priority

What Makes Design Energy Different?

Truly Local

Our company is independently owned, which means we put our clients best interests first- always.


When you hire DE, you will meet, shake hands and sign a contract with an employee of DE who will be directly responsible for your project from start to finish.

Customized Projects

We always conduct a code-specific evaluation of your site and proposed project, and take into account your particular financial situation.

Fully Licensed

Our owner/partners are licensed electricians and long-term, continuously trained NABCEP certified professionals, with all of the accrued know-how and responsibility that goes with it.

We know that affordable clean power and functional independence are requirements -not options-

for a sound and prosperous future
