South Sound Solar is the local leader in sales, engineering, design and installation of solar electric and solar hot water systems. They specialize in both commercial and residential turnkey systems.
As a small family owned business, Dever Kuni, Vice President proudly admits “Solar is all we do.” And according to customer feedback they do it well.
One example of South Sound Solar’s plethora of satisfied customers provides proof that solar panels do not always have to be placed on the roof of a house. They installed solar panels on their backyard pergola. One family even rebuilt their chicken coop so solar panels could be the roof.
South Sound Solar advises on possible locations of a solar system as well as types of solar such as photovoltaic (PV, Solar Electric) which is the most cost effective form of solar in Washington as well as passive solar and solar hot water.
Additionally, South Sound Solar recently completed an installation of thirty-three solar panels on the Olympia branch of the Timberland Regional Library. The solar panels produce enough free energy from the sun to power the lighting in the library. The installation was the outcome of a collaborative energy and water conservation effort from the City of Olympia, LOTT, Puget Sound Energy, Washington Department of Enterprise Services, and Ameresco.
The Timberland Regional Library as well as all residences and businesses can track their solar system’s performance online.
One of the best ways to learn more about how South Sound Solar powers our community is at the annual Thurston Solar Tour. South Sound Solar has been a lead sponsor and organizer of the event for 6 years. The tour opens local homes and businesses that have solar installed, giving the community a chance to speak with homeowners, not sales people. The Thurston Solar Tour takes place the last Saturday of September.
