What We Do
Our purpose is to lead communities into a clean energy future. We have been fulfilling this purpose for over 20 years by installing solar for homeowners, businesses, and organizations throughout our Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho communities.
Founded on a vision for a future powered by renewable energy, we believe in solar for good. We are a Certified B Corp that cares deeply about the environment, our community, and our customers. We operate out of net-zero energy offices that utilize energy-efficient passive designs and photovoltaic systems. For every solar array we install, we donate to solar energy grants.
Creative Energies is devoted to the mountain towns we work, live, and play in. We are adventurous solar craftspeople and many of our staff have solar panels on their own homes. We have come together to do our part in sustaining this amazing world we share. We are excited that you want to go #SolarForGood with us.
We are expert solar installers, technicians, electricians, and designers. We take pride in our solar craft of:
20 Years of Solar Experience
Our company’s history began in 2000 when Creative Energies’ founders, Andy Tyson and Scott Kane, noticed a problem. Climate change and regional air quality were worsening and our country was hooked on foreign oil. As former environmental educators with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), Scott and Andy knew it was time to change our nation's energy production methods. Working with the guiding principles of being authentic, mastering your craft, and practicing expedition behavior, Creative Energies was established.
Today our focus is on residential, commercial, public facilities, and off grid solar power. We are a dedicated and dynamic company based in Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho. We have over 20 years of experience installing solar and are experts in our field. Solar Power World ranks Creative Energies as the top solar installer in Wyoming and one of the top solar companies in Utah and Idaho.

Net Zero Offices
Creative Energies' offices in Wyoming and Salt Lake City are both zero net energy. In Salt Lake, we have converted a former print shop to be a modern and energy-efficient office and warehouse. Lighting upgrades, improved insulation and a 25 kW solar power system combine to allow this 50-year-old building to provide all of its own electricity.
Our office in Lander, WY is entirely zero net energy thanks to an efficient and passive solar design, a ground source heat pump for heating and cooling, a solar hot water system, and a 3 kW solar PV system. This allows the building to produce more energy than it uses annually. Water conservation and a healthy indoor environment are top priorities in our buildings.
