We are not just construction professionals, we are business professionals that understand that improving your bottom line and cash flow are among the key reasons you are putting solar into your property. Certified & Qualified: The fact that you get a general and electrical contractor with unlimited licenses in North Carolina is only the beginning.

Because we have made it our practice to pay all subcontractor, engineering, permit and construction fees associated with a project, we know what it takes. Even though we have our own licenses and insurance, we provide additional blanket and liability insurance to cover everyone working on your project. By being accountable for all aspects, you can count on us.
