Solar quickly developed a strong customer base and a reputation for excellence in this market. Soon it had no choice but to expand.
Over more than four decades, Solar Electric has honed its expertise and broadened its project portfolio as well as its geographical reach. Solar has evolved into a contracting firm that performs both public and private electrical work, ranging from luxury high-rise residential to commercial industrial projects, each with individual contract values spanning from $500,000 to $30 million.
