Jesse's journey in the solar industry began over a decade

ago, where he gained expertise in the field, honing his skills and staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in solar technology. His dedication to renewable energy solutions and his desire to make a positive impact on the environment led him to establish The Solar Guys with his brother, a company committed to providing sustainable energy solutions to their customers.

Michelle, on the other hand, initially pursued a career in teaching, sharing her knowledge with elementary aged students and enjoyed every minute of it. However, her passion for environmental sustainability aligned perfectly with Jesse's vision for The Solar Guys. Recently joining the company, Michelle now brings her expertise to the table as well.

Beyond their professional lives, Jesse and Michelle find joy in spending quality time with their two boys, aged 5 and 1. They are a close-knit family that loves being outdoors, camping, and engaging in various activities on their property. Whether it's working on their house or finding another project to begin, they cherish the moments they spend together as a family.
