Solar Heat and Electric is the oldest and best known designer and installer of solar systems in Nebraska (with many projects in Iowa, as well). This visionary organization began with solar thermal and energy conservation way back in 1983. Solar electric which now dominates the national and regional solar market was added as the technology matured.
With 30 years’ experience, Solar Heat and Electric has perfected the process of installing solar panels precisely and efficiently. They can scale up or down, serving any size facility from residential to commercial or even utility.
When homeowners, business owners or entire communities are attracted to renewable energy, they seek out long proven experts to lower risk. Solar Heat and Electric’s Michael Shonka fits that bill.
Shonka has taught at universities all over the Eastern Nebraska area and been closely associated with solar associations and trade groups. He holds the designation of NABCEP Certified Solar PV Installer.
That means you can move into the solar generation confidently and with minimal fuss. Your energy savings and your environmental conscience will become tangible. Your happiness will become sustainable.
