About Photon Brothers

Photon Brothers is a solar energy company based in Colorado and California’s Central Coast dedicated to providing you with high-quality solar installation and amazing customer experience. We use REC solar panels, which are some of the most advanced and energy-efficient solar panels in the world, and we are also Certified Tesla Installers for the Powerwall.

The company was founded by fourth-generation Coloradans David & Matt Raichart, veterans in the solar energy space who believe that solar power is the best way for homeowners in our beautiful states to save on their energy costs and move towards a more sustainable, Earth-friendly future. We have offices in Denver and Pueblo, Colorado as well as in San Luis Obispo, California, where one brother now lives with his family. From the sale to the design to your installation, your entire project is done by our in-house team including licensed and insured Master Electricians.

Our Difference

More Energy

REC panels are the highest-performing panels on the market with a 25-year warranty, meaning you’ll have more power with fewer panels for many years to come.

More Efficiency

Using the highest technology available means you can expect the most ROI on your solar system where we maximize your energy savings while minimizing your environmental impact.

More Sleek

Our modern, streamlined design looks great on any style of architecture or roofing material.

More Custom

At Photon Brothers, we pride ourselves on custom, quality installations. Every system we design and install is perfectly tailored to meet the needs of our individual customers – both residential and commercial.
