Our Mission ...
"To sustainably power our world with innovative, affordable, and customer focused energy solutions."
Solstice began with a vision, a vision that the world really could be powered by sustainable energy.

The goal: to revolutionize our current energy market by developing a solar power system which actually makes financial sense.
