Clayton Coate, Chief Energy Whisperer

With 10 years in the solar industry, Clayton brings a broad experience from which you can personally benefit. He is responsible for some 3 mega watts of solar installations over the past years (that's about 600 homes he has helped go solar!)

He was drawn to renewable energy on the belief that solar power can make a difference for the environment one roof at a time. His mission is to promote awareness, encourage adoption of clean energy resources and work towards a more sustainable energy future for all.

With a background of customer service roles in the home improvement, hi-tech and solar industries, he's followed a common thread of quality workmanship and awareness of the customer experience.

Clayton also brings a fundamental understanding of the construction and design world having spent time in residential remodeling and design/build of high end racing yachts.

Solar industry experience includes Clean Power Finance, Cobalt Power Systems, SkyTech Solar, Gexpro Supply and Freedom Solar Inc.

Clayton holds a NABCEP certification in Technical Solar Sales, a bachelor's degree from Golden Gate University in San Francisco and a Certificate of Small Boat Design from the Landing School of Design in Kennebunkport, ME.

Clayton was very helpful steering me through the various design and specification stages. It ended up a great system that has both reduced my bill by 75% or more and you can not even tell I have a system from the street. Also works with generator so I can have a longer 'down period' if bad weather (Hurricanes) strike. It is nice to have a pro in your corner when making an expensive upgrade to your home!

Clayton managed the design and installation of the solar power system for my new house. He was great to work with and the result was just what we wanted. Clayton listened carefully to my needs and showed a lot of flexibility and creativity as we worked to create a design that would meet our power and esthetic goals. I would definitely hire Clayton again.

I worked with Clayton closely through the entire project, he is quite knowledgeable about whole solar industry, most importantly, he is very responsive and communicated very well between me and solar installers. During COVID, we have done everything online, including site survey, quote, permit, it has been quite smooth and accurate. End of installation, Clayton came on site and walked through many details with me. Very happy with the support he provided through the whole process.
