Our Awards and Recognitions

We are proud to have been recognized by national, regional and local publications and organizations as one of the most trusted solar power companies serving San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties.

Whether it's being one of the only Southern California solar power companies to earn certification from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners or being named one of the nation's fastest-growing employers, we have been repeatedly recognized as a trusted solar power industry leader.

North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners Accreditation

Sullivan Solar Power NABCEP accreditation seal

For solar power companies, accreditation from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is considered the gold standard for quality, craftsmanship and integrity. Only companies that are proven to be doing on the best work designing, building, installing and monitoring solar energy systems are granted the prestigious NABCEP seal of approval.

Sullivan Solar Power went through a rigorous review process in 2014 to earn the NABCEP accreditation, making our company the largest NABCEP-approved solar power company in the United States and the only one serving Southern California.

The NABCEP accreditation is just one more reason why you can trust your family’s and company’s energy future with Sullivan Solar Power.

How many solar power companies have a day named after them? We do!

On June 30, 2014, we were honored by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors with a proclamation naming that date Sullivan Solar Power Day in San Diego, a distinction that reflects our commitment to making America’s Finest City a leader in solar power for the rest of the nation and the world.
