About Coastal Solar:
The idea of establishing a solar energy company was born out of a vision and concept that principal owner and CEO, Clay Sikes, had in 2013. Through much diligence, research and prayer this vision has now come to fruition with the acquisition of Coastal Solar Power Company of Savannah, a four year old solar company. Coastal Solar Power Company is now a division of The Sikes Group. The Sikes Group is a leading company in real estate, real estate marketing, land acquisition and development, commercial development and their related services with over 46 years of experience. Keith Freeman oversees system installation and brings over forty years of experience to the team. Our staff with backgrounds in engineering, sales, education and management brings an exceptionally diverse field of experience to the company.
When you contact Coastal Solar about your potential for “going solar”, we will guide you through the entire experience, describing exactly how the process works and answer any questions that you might have. We will perform a comprehensive solar and energy site assessment, where you have the benefit of making sure that your home/business/farm is suitable for a solar installation before proceeding. You will receive all of the benefits of our extensive knowledge and experience in matters concerning a solar installation, and are given a complete cost-effective view of what a solar electric system can provide. No pressure, just honest advice! You can then decide to proceed knowing that we will specify only highly proven, fully warranted, world-class solar electric products that assure your system will perform as expected for many, many years.
