Founder & President

Michael Ingram moved to California in 2008 intent on pursuing a career in the solar energy field. After spending years working for both “big box” installers as well as smaller independent contractors, he became frustrated with the common gap between pushy sales staff and rushed installations of dubious quality. The experience he gained both in the office and in the field gave Michael even more passion and dedication to integrating the seamless process of ‘going solar’ for his clients – he knew there had to be a better way.

After gaining years of experience and refining his skills with advanced professional training and obtaining a contractors license, Michael set out to form a solar company built on quality of service and attention to detail. Michael & Sun Solar was formed in 2011 and quickly found success, especially installing for many contractors who appreciated Michael’s reliable and high quality installation work. With time Michael has built his direct-sale business and Michael & Sun Solar is now a company of engineers and professionals who know the product, install the product, and let the product sell itself based on practical merits such as conservative financial projections and sound engineering and design.

Michael & Sun Solar installs top brands including SolarEdge, Enphase, Mission Solar, Silfab Solar, Solaria, and IronRidge and always coordinates with our clients to ensure the most aesthetically pleasing design with respect to module selection and curbside appeal, because we want our systems to look as good as they perform. Throughout the design process, installation, and beyond, we strive to provide extraordinary customer service.

Based in Graton, California, Michael & Sun Solar has now served hundreds of satisfied clients. Our roof top and ground mount systems installed all over Northern California are now producing more than 700 Megawatt-Hours of energy annually. We’ve built systems big and small and we remain focused on high quality design, installation, and system maintenance for our clients and sustainable growth and longevity of our business.
