Sullivan Solar Power

In 2004, Daniel Sullivan founded Sullivan Solar Power with only $2,500 in the bank, a set of tools, a beat up truck while living out of his client’s garage. His vision was then as it is today: to fundamentally change the way this region and the world generate electricity. Sullivan Solar Power is a turnkey provider that delivers solar PV projects from concept to completion, including installation of EV chargers. The company has installed more than 39,000,000-watts of solar across 5,000 systems in Southern California, ranging from small-scale residential to large-scale commercial and municipal systems.
