Independent Power Systems was founded in 1996 by Tony Boniface, who had the vision to create a company that provided state-of-the-art renewable energy systems with exceptional design, installation, service, and support. Tony’s fascination with renewable energy began in 1988 when he was camping on Mount Jefferson and found a solar panel pumping water. The idea of a clean electricity source, powered by the sun, working efficiently without any visible source of conventional power inspired Tony to study alternative energy. Tony worked for a company specializing in solar PV and hybrid electric systems and completed his professional engineering license. As far as solar companies go, we are pioneers in this space with our long history of learning before grid-tied solar was even economically feasible.

Independent Power Systems has a highly trained professional workforce that has completed thousands of residential and commercial solar, energy storage, wind, and hybrid systems all over the world. We have worked with homeowners, nonprofits, small businesses, cities, multinational corporations, and the military to provide cost-saving and sustainable energy solutions.
