Throughout Creative Energies' 20 plus years, we have been advocates of solar energy. We strive to be a model of progressive business practices and a voice in local and regional renewable energy policy and education. We support local nonprofits that engage in renewable energy advocacy, environmental and social justice, and causes that reflect our team members' passion for the outdoors.
We are a Certified Benefit Corporation (or B Corp) and part of a community dedicated to business for good.
We are also an Amicus Solar Cooperative member company that advocates for climate justice and more public benefits.
Nonprofits and Advocacy Groups for Renewable Energy
Creative Energies partners with nonprofits and advocacy groups for renewable energy to support sustainable renewable energy at state and local levels. We work with organizations in:
In addition to working with local nonprofit partners and advocacy groups, for every solar installation that Creative Energies completes, we donate to the Honnold Foundation in support of solar energy grants as part of our Give Back Program which has a global reach.

We also support national renewable energy policies.
Solar is Clean Renewable Energy
Solar energy is a renewable energy source. It can be harnessed in all areas of the world and is available every day. Unlike fossil fuel sources of energy, we will never run out of solar energy. We advocate for solar energy and renewable energy policies at a local and state level. Our team members are passionate about climate action and sustainability. We collectively make a difference with solar for good.
In the first eight years of Creative Energies' history, we offered services in many forms of renewable energy; solar for mountain cabins, wind power for remote ranches, solar hot water heating, passive solar home design, ground source heat pumps, and micro-hydroelectric systems. But grid connected solar electric (photovoltaic) systems became more reliable and more cost-effective than any of the other renewable options. We narrowed our focus to specialize in solar energy to provide the most benefit to our communities.
Today our focus is on residential, commercial, and public facilities as well as off grid solar power.
