About Us

Our Story

Solar has a powerful impact. Generate your own clean energy, reduce your monthly power bills, insulate yourself from rate hikes, and use those savings to improve your life. It’s a pretty big payoff, and you get the feel-good bonus for doing the right thing. This, combined with the ability to manage your home more smartly, is the foundation of REPOWER By Solar Universe TM .

Nationally Known. Locally Owned.

Solar Universe was founded by Joe Bono in 2008, and since then we have grown to become one of the largest residential solar installers in the U.S. Headquartered in Livermore, California, Solar Universe is unique among solar companies as the only major solar provider that offers franchise opportunities. We operate a network of 40 franchises across the U.S., from Hawaii to Puerto Rico. We have installed a whopping 46 megawatts of solar, and network-wide, we have over 1,000 team members who are dedicated to delivering clean solar energy. Since 2012, Solar Universe has been ranked annually on Franchise Magazine’s Franchise 500 list.

Smart Power. Smarter Home.

Consumers want alternatives to the restrictions and cost of grid power, and they already understand many of the benefits of solar. Now, they want to elevate their in-home experience with insight and control, and make their power work harmoniously with their home. We have seen a dramatic shift toward the idea of combining solar power with smart home technology that gives consumers a smarter, more comfortable home, day and night. Homeowners are now looking for a complete, seamless solution, and REPOWER is the answer.

Only REPOWER offers a fun, easy, approachable experience that allows you to generate clean solar energy outside your home, and make it work in harmony with innovative smart technology inside your home. Our locally owned and operated solar franchises recommend and install solar systems and financing options that are uniquely tailored for each customer’s home, lifestyle, and future plans. The result is a completely new relationship with your power, and your home – plus savings now and for years to come.
