Our Mission

The Mission of Sun Light & Power is to create a living environment that serves people’s intrinsic needs, supports the human spirit and preserves the planet’s resources for future generations.

Sun Light & Power is committed to making a positive difference in the world by providing exceptional service, products, and expertise in solar energy to our customers. We stand as an example of the great business practices that support our team members and the community that we live in.  In 1976, when engineer and solar pioneer Gary Gerber founded Sun Light & Power, not many people knew about solar energy. Since then he has helped assemble one of the solar industry’s most talented teams. They bring to each project unparalleled expertise, innovative solutions, energy-efficient solar technologies and outstanding customer service, making us one of the best solar power companies in the San Francisco Bay Area.
