Our Story

Founded in 2008 by Ben Parish, Eco Solar was born from the desire to create a solar company focused on a better experience for both customers and employees.

Starting out in a Mililani garage, Eco Solar grew quickly and earned a reputation for superior workmanship and service. Fifteen years later, Eco Solar earned a SunPower Master Dealer designation – 1 of just 42 in the Nation and the only Master Dealer in Hawaii. SunPower by Eco Solar is also a proud Tesla Powerwall Premier Certified Installer.

A Better Business Bureau A+ Accredited company since 2011, SunPower by Eco Solar boasts more than 3,000 installs, a 4.7-star rating on Google, and a 5-star rating on Yelp. Parish attributes the company’s continued success to its three fundamental principals of Quality, Service and People.

We’re not the biggest company but we have big hearts.
