About Direct Energy Solar

Solar power

We harness our energy expertise to make a difference in your life.

Direct Energy Solar combines the reliability and skill of a national solar company with personalized service and local knowledge.

We can help you harness the sun’s full potential for your home and are devoted to delivering the most carefree solar experience from end to end: from our first conversation through the entire lifetime of your system.

Here’s our story. We’ve made great strides in bringing solar to the rooftops of America and hope you consider joining our family of proud solar customers.

From humble beginnings to a large family...

Our company was founded in 2008 under the name of Astrum Solar. As a full service solar provider, Astrum Solar’s mission was to spread solar power to the rooftops of America and to ensure that its customers get the most out of their solar panels—the most energy generated, the most electricity savings, the most beneficial environmental impact, and the most joy each time they see a sunny day.

Astrum Solar’s focus revolved around delighting the customer. Building on the belief that simplifying the process of going solar will be the key to its widespread adoption, Astrum Solar provided the industry’s premier customer experience. Creating memorable experiences for customers resulted in rapid growth of the company. Astrum Solar was a two-time member of the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies in the United States.
