Sun Path is Open For Business

Sun Path is Open For Business

On March 22nd, Sun Path Electric decided for the safety of our employees, clients and community in general, to shut our operations. Although solar was considered essential, we felt it best to do our part to "flatten the curve" and lower the number of infected people in Washington state. Honestly, as important as grid-tied solar is, we did not see it as essential.

After two months sheltering in place, we are slowly re-opening and will be following all CDC guidelines on all job sites. The safety of our staff and clients is always our number one concern. All employees will be practicing social distancing both on and off the job site. We are returning to work slowing and with great care.

Here are a few details:

PPE

- Gloves: Crew members will wear gloves at all times while on site.

- Eye Protection: Crew members will wear eye protection at all times while on site.

- Face Masks: Crew members will weak face masks at all times while on site.

- Handwashing: All staff will follow CDC guidelines for handwashing and will have handwashing ability (outside of your home) on site.

- Cleaning and disinfecting work stations: All workstations will be cleaned and disinfected at the start and end of each day.

Solar Systems

Solar system installations mainly happen outside on your roof and mounting equipment on the side of the home. Our electricians will need to enter your home to access your electric panel, which is usually located in the garage or electric room. When entering home, all staff will adhere to CDC guidelines.

Remote Site Surveys

Our sales and design team specialists will provide remote preliminary consultation and solar quotes. This includes an overview phone meeting, emailed educational materials on going solar in Washington,  a solar system designed through advanced mapping technology and information provided from our customers. After the initial consultation, upon customer approval, and in-person meeting and site evaluation is scheduled to make sure the home and roof are as indicated on satellite imagery. Our solar consultant will wear PPE and follow social distancing suggested by the CDC.

As Always, We Are Here For You!

Now, more than ever, small, socially-minded businesses, such as Sun Path Electric, need community support. Over the last two years, we have installed hundreds of solar systems, donated thousands of dollars to local climate groups, and provided hundreds of hours of community education on solar and climate change. Our consistent 5 star reviews, across all platforms, speak for themselves. We are here for you in good times and in less-than-good times. We continue to move solar and climate education forward with love, honesty and quality workmanship.
