About Us

The Bay Area's Trusted Solar Specialists.

Experience counts when it comes to installing solar energy, and we’ve been building a brighter, cleaner future on the Central Coast since 2007.

Scudder Solar was founded in 2007 to build a brighter, cleaner future for every area we serve in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties, and to work towards ensuring solar power's economic and environmental benefits lead to a healthy, thriving local green economy and a cleaner climate for all. Over the past 17 years, the Scudder Solar team has grown to become one of California's leading solar PV installation companies and a respected industry leader.

With Pete Scudder and COO Jen Scudder heading up our local, in-house team of design consultants, estimators, engineers, and electricians, Scudder Solar is dedicated to creating sustainable local communities powered by advocacy, education, and the aggressive support and adoption of new solar and green technologies. With over 10.5 MW of residential and commercial solar power installed (that's enough energy to reduce our CO2 emissions by 14,600 tons per year or supply power to some 2000 households, which is the equivalent of a small city!), Scudder Solar has the expertise to handle all project sizes and integrate high-efficiency solar with any roofing application.
