Our Military Roots
As a Captain in the US Marine Corps trust means everything. Trust, to be there for my Marines. Trust, to be the expert. Trust, to get the job done right. That same philosophy stayed with me for the past 20 years as a contractor and a solar specialist. Solar can be complicated, but at Semper Solaris we pride ourselves on taking the time to help you understand how solar works and how to choose the right system. Find out why homeowners all over San Diego trust Semper Solaris.
Co-founder, Semper Solaris
Solar power is all about the freedom to afford to run your AC. We make solar simple, stripped of hype, high pressure and high prices, the basic reality of solar electricity is simple. It’s a math problem, with an obvious answer. No land needs to be bought or leased, as it is already present. No additional infrastructure needs to be installed, as the home wiring is generally sufficient and the home is already tied into the grid. With current prices as low as they are, there will likely never be a better time to go solar.
