Kuykendall Gives Back

 

    • Kuykendall is proud to install solar all over California and, as a valley based company, is proud re-invest back into the valley! As of February 2016, Kuykendall Solar are sponsors of renewable energy college scholarships through the Clean Energy Cluster!

 

    • In 2007, a Kuykendall employee set up the Ashley Sala Memorial Scholarship at Mariposa High School in memory of a loved one’s passing, and Kuykendall Solar is proud to sponsor this college scholarship program and to help the youth of our community soar!

 

    • We believe strongly in ensuring that the next generation values renewable energy, that is why we participate regularly in community events, such as taking solar panels and inverters to local elementary schools and girl scout meetings and giving presentations to the students about how solar works and the importance of clean energy. Also, Liz Kuykendall is a guest lecturer on business strategy in the energy field at the Craig School of Business at California State University.

 

  • In partnership with Karimu International Help Foundation, Kuykendall Solar committed to installing solar in Africa the summer of 2017 as part of their commitment to nonprofit work. They will be providing all of the materials and labor to bring power to the maternity ward and 4 of the schools in the town of Dareta Kati, Tanzania. Without working power, many women still lose their lives in childbirth in this town, and school is cancelled when there is not enough light to read by or enough warmth to dry the muddy ground that the children sit on. Solar power saves lives in third world countries and Kuykendall is ecstatic to be able to contribute!

Put one of the best solar installation companies in California to work for you.

“I have worked with Brian Kuykendall for over a year and have nothing but the highest regard for his capabilities as an electrician, builder, and his abilities to successfully manage commercial solar photovoltaic installations.”
~
Travis Somers, General Superintendent of SPG Solar, Inc.
“I was very impressed with the quality and workmanship of Kuykendall Solar and the crews on site at every job I had the pleasure of inspecting. Their inspections were always seamless and installations far above code. Kuykendall Solar has never missed or failed an inspection, and always completed projects earlier than anticipated. I highly recommend using Kuykendall Solar as your commercial solar installer. Everyone that has worked with them has come away happy with the quality of the install and has enjoyed working with their crews.”

Sirath Patzer, Inspector of Record, OSHPD/DSA/Combination Inspector
