South Sound Solar president, owner, and lead engineer Kirk Haffner first became passionate about solar energy in the 1980s. After working as a teacher and at Intel, Kirk, who has his master’s degree in physics opened South Sound Solar in 2008.
“It is true that in the winter time in Thurston County we have a marine climate that is highly overcast with short winter days. But it is also true that our long, cool summer days are ideal for solar,” Haffner explains.
South Sound Solar is Olympia’s longest-running solar installation company – doing both residential and commercial installations – and the only one with the science background to give homeowners and businesses a truly thorough, dependable solar electric or solar hot water experience.
What sets South Sound Solar apart is its knowledge of the science behind solar and its dedication to getting the job done right. “We’re not just a couple contractors who decided to start doing solar. It’s all we do,” says South Sound Solar’s Vice President, Dever Kuni.
