Introducing a Better Way to Go SolarAbout
Got a great idea for a solar project but unsure where to start? Whether you need a standalone solar system, batteries, or are interested in vehicle-to-grid, our experts can help guide you to the best solutions.
Our model is different because we partner with multiple solar installers who provide us with custom quotes for your project.
Your Broker will…
- gather your utility usage information
- assess your property
- recommend equipment
- design your system
We then collect quotes from our partner installers and help you choose the one that best fits your budget and timeframe.
Your installation team will handle the necessary permits, inspections, and interconnection with your utility provider. They’ll also take care of any electrical upgrades your solar project requires.
Your Central Coast Solar Broker will be with your every step of the way.
We’ll keep you informed and track your project to its completion. And we’ll continue to represent you after installation to ensure your satisfaction.
That’s Solar Simplified!
"As a solar consultant, I consider myself more of an educator than a salesperson. Whether a large commercial job or a small residence, I take the same approach with my clients: gather information on what they need, educate them on the process, and offer the best solar solutions."

I first started looking into adding solar panels to my home in the spring of 2020. I was new to solar and after the first site visit, I realized the steep learning curve I was facing in order to understand all the details involved. Every time I got a new quote and proposal, I would have to invest hours of my time to research and compare plans and prices. Different companies were providing me very different opinions regarding the best system for my situation. I also had to spend hours reading customer reviews of the companies themselves. All told, I got bids from 6 different solar companies and the project drug out over 2 years. The last company I requested a bid from sent out Mike Shaheen. Mike was like a breath of fresh air. He answered all my questions in ways that I as a layperson could easily understand, and it was clear that he is very knowledgeable about the solar industry overall and locally. It was also clear that the information he was providing me was accurate and not just part of an effort to get my business. Within weeks of meeting Mike, I finally felt comfortable moving forward with my solar project. Mike was available throughout the installation process and continues to be a source of reliable information. I will work with Mike again when I'm ready to add solar batteries. If you're thinking about solar, save yourself a lot of time and headaches by taking advantage of Mike's expertise, integrity, and stellar work ethic.
Our system went into operation on April 2019. Since that time, each year we get a credit from PG&E that offsets the cost of a second electric service for our water well. We owe the excellent system design to Mike Shaheen. As well as system design, Mike was “eyes on and hands on” with every aspect of our system including: financing, the system installers, and putting the system into operation. Mike was both knowledgeable and professional while working with me like he was my best friend and only client. Mike has continued to provide excellent service, when necessary, and has always been available to answer questions, any follow-up, and promptly provide corrective measures when an issue did occur.
