About Us

Solar Energy World, Leader in Solar System Design and Installation

Solar Energy World, headquartered in Elkridge Maryland, is a leading provider and installer of solar electric systems and solar hot water systems for residential and commercial property owners  in the Maryland and Washington DC metro area. With over 1,200 solar installations since our founding in 2009, we are the fastest-growing, independently-owned and operated solar company in the Maryland/DC metro area. We are also one of the most experienced and stable solar companies in the region.  Our parent companies are Gleeson Electric, a commercial electric company that has been in operation since 1958, and Homefix Corporation, a specialty green remodeling company that was founded in 1990.

Solar Energy World provides property owners a complete turnkey solution to solar power, handling every step of the process to make going solar easy.  In addition to ensuring our customers receive every tax credit, grant and solar renewable energy credit they are entitled to, all of our solar installers work directly for our company and are fully accountable to us. Many of our installers and crew leaders have had years of prior experience working for our parent companies in the related fields of roofing, electrical and home improvements and all of them receive solar panel installation training from our solar PV module manufacturers including Schüco and SunPower. In addition, during the installation process our crews are supervised by a Solar Energy World NABCEP-certified solar designer/installer and a Solar Energy World licensed master electrician. We never hire subcontractors, so your solar system installation is guaranteed to be of the highest quality.

    Committed to Clean Energy Because Tomorrow Matters

    According to several recent studies, annual electricity demand is projected to increase to 5,000 billion kWh by 2030. Coal fired power plants generate 37% of  US electricity, and are the single biggest air polluter in the U.S. Petroleum products including natural gas, account for approximately 31% of our energy needs and are the second largest contributor of pollutants found in our water, land and air.  Solar Energy World’s mission is to show property owners that they don’t have to rely on dirty fossil fuels alone for their electricity.

    Solar energy for homes and businesses provides a clean, renewable and sustainable source of energy that helps reduce human dependence on fossil fuels, greenhouse gas emissions and grid constraints. Solar energy, along with other clean and renewable sources, can help shift society to a new energy future.  Solar Energy World believes in playing a key role in this transition process because fossil fuels not only pump tons of poison into our air daily, they are also finite. The sun is the most powerful, reliable energy source we have that will provide energy to the earth for billions of years. 

    Solar Energy World  is committed to protecting the environment and promoting clean, renewable energy. We focus on providing sustainable energy solutions for homeowners and commercial property owners that include products that are guaranteed to operate efficiently and remain safe for the environment over their entire life cycle.  We strive to maintain the highest standards in responsible product choices and installation services and pledge to remain a responsible corporate citizen as we help the world shift to a cleaner energy future.

    We practice what we preach – We’ve made numerous energy efficient upgrades to our facility in Elkridge, Maryland, and, of course, it is powered by the sun. Our solar power system was designed and installed by our employees and is approximately 48kW in size, providing 52,500 kWh. This is equivalent to greenhouse gas emissions avoided by recycling 12 tons waste instead of sending it to the landfill!
