Our Story

  1. 2006

    The First Step

    While pursuing his Master’s in Finance at Boston University, Deep Patel attends Solar Power 2006 in San Jose, California, to conduct industry research and write a report for a school project. He launches his blog, GoGreenSolar.com, shortly after.

  2. 2007

    New Beginnings

    Deep leaves an unfulfilling finance job to pursue GoGreenSolar.com full-time. He recognizes the lack of high-quality, publicly-available information about solar, so he starts publishing blogs to share his expertise on the emerging technology.

  3. 2008

    Establishing a Foundation

    The blog grows, and Deep discovers that many of his contacts need help with solar panel installation. Initially, he acts as a middleman, sending leads to solar companies, but he later expands his offerings with more products, services and financing options. He starts to advertise online and drop-ship products directly to customers.

  4. 2009

    First Solar Kit Installed

    GoGreenSolar collaborates with the Unleash Power for the People Foundation to install a 1.1 kW off-grid system at Bashoy-Abucot Elementary in Benguet, Philippines — a school with no access to the grid. Following the successful installation, students could enjoy access to lighting, fans, refrigeration and computers. 

  5. 2009

    Hands-On experience

    Deep volunteers with Grid Alternatives, a nonprofit organization that installs solar panels for low-income housing in the Los Angeles region. He gains valuable knowledge about installation and customers’ needs and challenges with DIY solar panels.

  6. 2009

    DIY Solar Gains Momentum

    Deep applies his new knowledge to tackle his next project: installing a ground-mount system in his parent's backyard with help from friends and his brother, Raj. He learns the complexities of DIY installation and blogs about his experience, bringing more attention to DIY solar. To keep up with growing demand, he hires his first employees: Raj and Linh, who he met while working in finance.

  7. 2010

    Brand Growth

    In celebration of Earth Day, GoGreenSolar is featured on The Price is Right, exposing the brand to millions of viewers. The prize, a solar cabana, was a shade structure with eight solar panels that showcased how solar could be both accessible and stylish.

  8. 2010

    Public Works Project

    GoGreenSolar deploys the world’s first grid-connected solar panel system for bus shelters in Corona, California. These shelters are a source of shade for transit users and double as mini power plants to operate stoplights and reduce the city’s energy bills.

  9. 2011

    City of Los Angeles Project

    The City of Los Angeles approaches GoGreenSolar to offset its lighting bills by installing solar panels on streetlight poles. Deep works with the city to design a unique grid-connected solar panel that reduces the city's energy consumption and carbon footprint and promotes the adoption of solar power at a larger scale.

  10. 2012

    Business Takes Off

    The GoGreenSolar team moves to a larger office and warehouse in Placentia, California. They expand operations and hire more staff to support the increasing demand for services and the growing trend of homeowners going solar.

  11. 2013

    Recognition

    GoGreenSolar receives the Green Energy Firm of the Year Award from the City of Los Angeles, presented by then-Mayor Villaraigosa. The award is a testament to the company's commitment to promoting solar power solutions and their work with the City of Los Angeles in 2011.

  12. 2014

    SunJack Launch

    GoGreenSolar launches a new division, SunJack, to produce portable solar panel charging kits for campers, military personnel, or humanitarian aid agencies to charge devices and provide lighting in remote areas. The product’s powerful charging speeds and the brand’s humanitarian work attracted media attention.

  13. 2014

    Meeting Solar Pioneers

    Along with his friends Jeff and Harold, Deep visits Humboldt, California, to meet solar pioneers David Katz and Johnny Weiss — backwoods engineers and business hippies who first delivered "solar power to the people” in the 70s. The team sought to learn from these pioneers and gain insights into the early days of solar technology and its evolution.

  14. 2015

    The White House

    Deep is invited to participate in a White House roundtable discussion on U.S. energy policy during the Obama administration. He advocates for a future with rooftop solar panels paired with energy storage and electric cars with vehicle-to-home technology. This event signifies GoGreenSolar's expertise and capability to contribute to crucial national energy policy discussions.

  15. 2016

    Solar Panel Factory Tours

    Deep visits solar panel factories across the U.S. and Asia to source the most reliable and efficient solar panels for GoGreenSolar customers. During these visits, Deep assesses the manufacturing process, quality control measures, and technology used to produce the panels.

  16. 2018

    California Solar Policy

    Deep serves as the California Storage and Storage Association (CALSSA) Los Angeles chapter leader, regularly visiting Sacramento, California to advocate for policies that support consumer adoption of solar and storage. He meets with legislators to discuss hot topics in solar while lobbying for policies that help consumers access affordable, reliable DIY solar kit solutions.

  17. 2019

    Federal Solar Policy

    As an active member of the Solar Energy Industry Association (SEIA), Deep travels to Washington D.C. to meet with elected representatives to discuss rooftop solar, advocate for policies that support industry growth, and stay informed about the latest industry and technology developments.

  18. 2020-2021

    Thriving Through the Pandemic

    GoGreenSolar thrives and expands during the pandemic thanks to online sales growth, an updated website, and surging interest in home renovations. The company relocates to Anaheim and opens a satellite office in Redding, California. Other DIY solar leaders join the company, and with their help, GoGreenSolar quickly adapts to the changing market.

I am deeply passionate about solar and storage because it democratizes energy, making it accessible to everyone.

By harnessing the sun’s power with solar panels and storing energy in batteries, we no longer depend on centralized power systems, allowing individuals and communities to generate electricity and take control of their energy future.

We’re benefiting our planet and creating more equitable, sustainable world for all.
