We’ve heard loud and clear that homeowners across the state are interested in owning their power and maintaining a consistent energy payment. The cost of solar power in Tennessee is increasingly affordable, and our panels are financed for roughly the same cost as an electric bill. When the financing ends, so does the payment for solar energy. Based on consumer interest, we need to open a second office to accommodate for our growing customer base.

Powerhome Solar CEO Jayson Waller

Powerhome Solar launched in 2014 in Mooresville, North Carolina. Operating in 10 states, it is ranked No. 255 on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.
