Our Mission

Energy with INtegrity

Our mission is to provide our customers with honest, real solutions to reduce their fossil fuel consumption and lower their long term energy costs. “Energy with Integrity” isn’t just a company slogan, it’s how we do business.

Founded in 2007 by Kevin and Shana Good, Good Energy Solutions has earned a reputation for our expert reliable service, long workmanship warranties, and quality commercial and residential solar installations. We’re a family owned and operated small business that aims to educate people about the benefits of solar power. Good Energy Solutions has made a commitment to providing our customers with solar installations that generate at least as much, if not more, energy that is quoted on our bids.

We are engineers and craftsmen designing for efficiency while keeping aesthetics and longevity in mind. Because of our installation quality and customer service, Good Energy Solutions was selected by SunPower to be the only Elite Dealer in Kansas or Missouri. SunPower solar modules come with the longest warranties in the solar industry and we have committed to servicing our customers with long warranties as well. Also, we have more NABCEP® Certified Solar Professionals on staff than any other company in Kansas or Missouri.  To achieve this certification, PV installers must demonstrate that they possess extensive solar PV installation experience, have received advanced training, and passed the rigorous NABCEP certification exam.
