SolarCraft, the renowned leader in clean energy solutions, proudly celebrates 40 years of dedication to its mission of harnessing the power of the sun to create a more resilient and sustainable  North Bay region. Since its establishment in 1984, SolarCraft has been at the forefront of solar energy and battery backup installations, serving Marin, Sonoma, and Napa counties with innovative and reliable renewable energy solutions.

“In commemorating our 40th anniversary, we reflect on the incredible journey we have embarked upon with the North Bay community,” said Phil Alwitt, CEO of SolarCraft. “Our commitment to sustainability, reliability, and our customers has been the cornerstone of our success, and we are immensely proud to have been a part of the region’s transition to clean energy.”

The North Bay region, known for its picturesque landscapes and vibrant communities, faces the recurring challenges of yearly wildfires and frequent power outages. SolarCraft has played a vital role in mitigating these challenges by providing cutting-edge solar energy and battery backup solutions. These installations not only offer independence from PG&E, but also significant cost savings and peace of mind during emergencies, ensuring that homes and businesses stay powered when it matters most.

“We understand the unique needs of the North Bay, and our solar energy and battery backup installations are designed to provide resilience in the face of adversity,” added Alwitt. “Our goal is to empower our community with sustainable solutions that protect both the environment and our way of life.”

As a 100% employee-owned company, SolarCraft’s success is deeply intertwined with the commitment and dedication of its team members. The company’s employee-owners are not just invested in the business; they are invested in the well-being of the community they serve. This shared sense of ownership fosters a culture of collaboration, excellence, and a genuine passion for creating positive change.

“Our employee-owners are the heart and soul of SolarCraft. Their dedication to our company, our community, and each other is the driving force behind everything we do,” remarked Alwitt. “Together, we look forward to the next 40 years of helping our customers and making a meaningful difference in the North Bay.”

SolarCraft is 100% Employee-Owned and has been one of the largest green-tech employers based in the North Bay for over 40 years.  SolarCraft delivers Clean Energy Solutions for homes and businesses including Solar Energy and Battery Energy Storage.  With over 9,000 customers throughout Marin, Sonoma and Napa Counties, our team of dedicated employee-owners is proud to have installed more clean energy systems than any other company in the North Bay.   Visit us at  or follow along @SolarCraft on Facebook and Twitter.
