About Utilize Solar
Control. Conserve. Save.

Utilize Solar is a consulting firm founded by Mark Wanser. After working for one of the largest companies in the solar industry, Mark learned that for many, the transition to solar can be intimidating and confusing. Complicated terminology, outdated figures on costs and installation, and misinformation about home resale values all add up to hesitation when it comes to choosing renewable energy.

Mark noticed a real lack of focus on educating and empowering the customer to make a truly informed decision about solar. He founded Utilize Solar to help consumers easily and confidently MAKE THE SWITCH.

Reduce your energy costs by up to 50% with Utilize Solar. It’s not only cash purchases and lease options anymore — financing options make solar ownership a reality for many home and business owners, regardless of credit.

Carl Robinson, Bakersfield, CA

In the beginning when I first called in, I was looking to reduce my cost for power but did not know where to start. The information that was explained to me made everything so easy to understand. I was a skeptic like most, but once everything started moving forward and I was able to see the end result I was beyond excited. My electricity bill was cut in half and it was just in time for those high summer bills. If you have ever looked into solar before and you were not confident with the information that you received. I highly recommend taking another look and because these guys know there stuff!

Katie Little - Fresno, CA

We are very pleased with Utilize Solar for installing our Solar system. They had a fair price and excellent execution. Our system has been up and running for 7 months now, without any problems. The team that worked on our house did a great job. They were very helpful and stayed engaged from the beginning to the end. The design done by the engineers was right on the money. The number of panels and layout was done in the most optimal fashion. The installers worked very hard and made sure to take excellent care of our property and home. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Utilize Solar to my family and friends!

Josh Ballast - Roseville, CA

I am so happy that I decided to reach out to Utilize Solar . I made a call to them and within an hour they were able to save me $400 a month on my PG&E bill. It was super easy! They analyzed my bill with me and after looking at it, they had me switch rate plans with PG&E and Boom!! I saved a $100 bucks on my next bill and its only got up from there. The process is so quick and easy I don’t know why everybody wouldn’t do it?!

I have been communicating with Mark for many weeks to get my solar system installed. He has been knowledgeable and answered my many questions patiently. He is truly an asset to your organization with an amenable personality that is engaging and pleasant to interact with at all times. He has made this process easy for me to handle. I highly recommend him for a job well done.

Jim Toretti - Bethesda, MD

Solar panels were installed on my house and garage just last Friday, 02-26-16, one step in a process that began with my initial contact with Mark Wanser. I felt comfortable talking with Mark right from the start; his personality, enthusiasm and knowledge level combine to make it easy & enjoyable to work with him. That good feeling did not end with our first conversation; Mark has maintained frequent contact throughout the entire process, even during the slow period when I was waiting for the installation to be scheduled. Any time I had a question or concern, I felt quite comfortable contacting Mark and asking him, and he always made me feel as if my concern was his top priority. I have been extremely happy to work with Mark, and I strongly recommend him to others interested in going solar. As a matter of fact, I hope to arrange for a few friends and neighbors to contact Mark as their first step down the path to solar energy.
