How much solar power would benefit my household? This is a question that we address often at Four Phase Energy. It is an important question, one that should be answered by professionals. After all, PV is an investment that should be working for you for decades to come! We at Four Phase Energy have all the training and abilities to comprehensively answer those questions. How, you ask? Just ask our CEO Steve Geiger. Steve is the department chair of Construction and Energy Technology at Sierra College. He currently heads up Sierra College’s green energy and construction program. Determined to find solutions to our ever-growing energy crises, he is responsible for training the next generation of PV and green energy installers and entrepreneurs.
The Sierra College program has several focuses, including hands-on solar installation, project management and solar sales. Some training even includes preparation to sit for a nationally recognized solar exam called the NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) for PV. Four Phase Energy design and management staff all either work as educators for people to take this test, or have achieved passing scores of the exam themselves!
As you can see, working with Four Phase Energy is a step up from any plain solar contractor. We really know our stuff.
In a recent Auburn Journal piece that Steve was featured in for their continuing series “Placer 2017: A look ahead”, Steve was quoted saying, “California is leading the nation, if not the world, in clean energy. By 2020, all utilities need to have 30 percent of their energy from renewable sources. All the rooftop solar counts, as well as wind, water and environmental credits. Solar is the fastest growing industry in the country. The most common reason consumers pursue solar is for saving money; solar hedges their rate increases. There’s a lack of understanding of what’s involved. Many think it’s too expensive, but solar panels have dropped in price dramatically – from thousands to hundreds of dollars.”
At Four Phase Energy, we’re committed to assisting the public in understanding the ins and outs of going solar, and helping you determine whether it’s right for your household or business. Do you want to learn more? Steve is teaching an informative class hosted by The Learning Exchange on January 28th at the Sacramento Learning Exchange.
You don’t have to rely on our knowledge to make solar decisions. You can educate yourself and learn from one of the best, most qualified teachers in the renewable energy sector of our community! Whether you're young or old, this information can help spring you into the future of your energy production so you can decide along with our qualified solar energy professionals, if the path to renewable PV energy is right for your home or business.
In addition to graduating from San Jose State with a Bachelor of Science degree in business marketing, Steve holds a CA State General and Electrical Contractors License. He has a broad depth of PV experience, including: leading installation jobs, supervising work crews, managing materials, and performing troubleshooting of electrical equipment and photovoltaic solar equipment. He has installed all major brands of photovoltaic panels, inverters and related power equipment. He has trained hundreds of people in Photovoltaics (PV). He also teaches for the California Laborers Union and California Conservation Corp.
