For two years running, GenPro Energy Solutions, based out of Piedmont, SD, has been named as one of the nation's top solar contractors by Solar Power World, a leading publication and educational resource for the solar industry. GenPro Energy Solutions is the only company in SD, ND and NE to make the list.
"We've been very fortunate in the last year to be able to design solar installations for locations that may not be traditionally thought of as solar friendly," says Tim Teeslink, GenPro Energy's Solar System Specialist. "Besides installations here at home in South Dakota, North Dakota and Nebraska; we're currently working on installations in Alaska. The myth is that Northern climates do not have great solar resources when in truth our solar radiation here in Western South Dakota is on par with most of Florida."
GenPro Energy Solutions was founded in Rapid City, South Dakota by Dwight Patterson in early 2003 to service the agriculture market with solar-powered remote livestock watering systems. From there GenPro has grown to be one of the largest distributors and integrators of renewable energy systems in the Mid-west. The GenPro team consists of NABCEP, ASES and SEI certified designers and installation professionals. Besides solar energy solutions, GenPro Energy specializes in energy efficient lighting technologies and controls, solar irrigation, power generation and back-up systems. GenPro consults with Municipalities and Utilities throughout North America on how to integrate renewable energy and energy efficient technologies into their current systems.
