For close to 40 years, Backwoods Solar has been an off-grid focused solar, wind and micro-hydro system designer and supplier based in a remote part of Idaho. The Company was founded in 1978 after the previous owners installed their own off-grid photovoltaic system at their mountain home. Backwoods has quickly grown to become one of the most trusted off-grid suppliers in America, helping rural homeowners and small installers across the country by designing and providing support throughout the lifetime of the systems.
In the last 10 years, we have expanded into international markets, with customers across the globe, from rural villages to remote telecommunication sites, helping supply products to assist in water pumping, communications, lighting, and emergency outages. We have helped design and supply products for over 35,000 full-scale off-grid systems worldwide. Our off-grid battery expertise is also used to help design grid-tied systems that incorporate both the features of utility net metering, with the convenience of battery back-up when outages happen.
What makes us unique is that our technicians live in homes that get their power from the wind, water or sun using the products we sell in our catalog. Our team personally answers all letters, emails, and calls during business hours, to help with your questions and equipment needs. Your questions will get answered and your needs will be met. It is our earnest goal to leave you completely satisfied.
Backwoods Solar is one of the most trusted suppliers of solar, wind, and micro-hydro power systems components in the United States specifically dedicated to serving homes, villages, and communities so remote that access to utility lines is not practical. We want your systems to last and we stand by the quality components we stock. We have nine solar electric specialists offering personalized attention to self-reliant homeowners who choose and install their own power systems, as well as larger installers doing off-grid battery based and grid-connected solar around the world.
