Welcome to Sun Solar Electric,INC-a Full Service Electrical and Solar Installation Company. We are based in Sonoma County, and provide services to our surrounding counties of the SF Bay Area.

Michael and Jayson's history included many prior years of their work specialties intersecting-electrical and solar- that evolved a deep respect for each others' knowledge and ability. With the decision to combine their shared knowledge, passion for excellence, and Licenses,Sun Solar Electric was launched.

It is worth noting that during the first 4 years, the Company's non-stop growth was generated largely from referrals-their work and ethics spoke for them as their only advertising.

Electrical projects have also been widely diverse, for Residential and Commercial premises, and State work. Every aspect and size of Electric Panel install and maintenance; wiring; lighting; Home and Building Automation Systems; Electric Car-Charging Stations; Back Up Generators, Battery Systems, and their integration with Solar.

Working closely with “cutting-edge” manufactures, SSE strives to be constantly up to date, with what is currently available, and also with what is imminent in technological developments.
