The Lighthouse Way
A simple philosophy: We go beyond tangible services – project design, construction, electricity, and system maintenance – to animate a new way of being in the world.
Stan Pipkin owns and co-manages Lighthouse Solar. Since 2007, he also has been involved in shaping local and state solar policy, community development, and sustainable building practices. Stan holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin.
In The Field
Solar energy is a technical solution. But it’s delivered in a social context. That’s why we attract people who exhibit empathy, whose backgrounds are not in solar, who bring life experiences from all over the world. We identify the right people, then layer on solar technical skills.
Project Management Team
Our project management team’s central goal is to ensure a transparent customer experience and a precise project delivery. The latest in automation and CRM technology augment our ability to remain efficient and accessible regardless of where you are on your solar journey.
Solar system design for projects expected to meet an energy offset goal can be simple and straightforward. The talents of our team shine through most when asked to incorporate energy storage or to treat solar panels themselves as an element of architectural design.
Our install teams are full-time employees who work with the latest technology and are adept at multiple systems, rooftops, and environmental conditions. Team members are all on a path to grow their knowledge and skill set through ongoing training and certifications.
Lighthouse Solar staffs a full-time service team to respond to challenging events, like the 2021 Texas Winter Storm and ongoing maintenance schedules. Our install team members can matriculate to service roles upon achieving experience milestones.
Lighthouse Solar is committed to the adoption and advocacy of appropriate, effective, and integrated solar energy technologies in the places where people spend their lives.
Our customers appreciate that solar is more than a commodity. Together we are rethinking physical space and the way we use energy. With each installation we complete, each neighbor we educate, each student we mentor, and each promise we honor, we can begin to see energy in a different light.
“Great price, excellent service, very personal touch, the team really cared about getting us the best system at the right price. Lot’s of experience with all the permitting and financing process. Made it all a breeze!”
“Lighthouse Solar installed panels on our home. We’ve produced more energy than we’ve used for the past few months, and have a nice fat credit to keep bills low during the summer. The team of Stan, Robb and Jeff and the crew were efficient and the panels look great. The tools to monitor the system are fun, and in the event of a power outage, we’ll be able to run some appliances off solar too. Very happy with Lighthouse Solar!”
Lighthouse Solar is inherently collaborative. We are committed to building an ecosystem of partners that is greater than the sum of its parts. And by partners, we mean more than the organizations we have standing agreements with. They are the individuals, companies, associations, and movements that inspire us, challenge us, and share projects with us.
