Building the future

Resilient Power
for the journey ahead

Independent Power Systems prioritizes robust, self-sufficient and sustainable equipment to ensure reliable energy when it’s needed most. We work with homeowners, business owners, consultants, nonprofits, utilities, and even our nation’s military to maximize returns and overcome energy challenges through unparalleled craftsmanship and excellence in design.

What We
Design & Build

Residential

Reduce energy costs, do your part to reduce emissions, and increase the value and appeal of your home with solar. It’s that simple. We offer exclusive deals when combining home solar and components such as Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations or battery backups.

Commercial

Now, more than ever before, consumers are turning to sustainably-minded, socially-responsible businesses for their needs. With solar plus energy storage, your company will set itself apart when it comes to sustainability while also enjoying reduced operating costs and expenses. 

Off-Grid

We’ve been designing and installing off-grid energy systems since 1996 with applications from cabins in the mountains to water pumping for ranchers. Today, we’re still helping customers go off the grid with a variety of battery storage solutions and on-site power generation.

Microgrids

With our many microgrid partners, we can cut out the middlemen and complete your project from start to finish by identifying financial incentives and opportunities, understanding your local policies, designing your microgrid system,  and everything in between.

Years in the Business

With our years of experience, we’ve seen all of the twists and turns that the solar industry has had over the last few decades and we know what works and what doesn’t.

MW solar installed

We work with a variety of different types of customers and have done projects all over the world. With this much solar installed, we are so proud to have had a part in pushing the needle toward a renewable energy future.

The roots of our business began in off-grid renewables, so we know batteries as well as we know solar and can take on the complexities of going off the grid because it’s in our blood.

We only partner with the best

We pride ourselves on providing the premium solutions you need to keep the lights on—anywhere, anytime.

“As one of the Founding Members of the Pet Sustainability Coalition, we demand continuous improvements in our ‘Green Pawprint’. Reducing the use of fossil fuels via solar is a great way to do that. It also saves our company hundreds of thousands of dollars. Our Kong team, our customers and I love solar!”

KD Freuh

President, KONG Company

“It’s cool that the system doesn’t require you to do ‘x, y, z.’ You don’t have to turn the panels to face the sun. There aren’t any switches. It just does what it does—it’s as reliable as the water. There’s no burden on me. I thought there would be more involvement.”

Kate Frazier

“As the leading manufacturer of waders and related apparel for the fishing industry, we’ve been trying to conserve energy and do the right thing for the environment, which is such a big part of our business.”
