In 2008, our founder Gautier Meyers started a company that became one of the most successful solar installers in France: Synergetik SARL. Customer service and commitment to quality was Synergetik’s motto and drove the company to success. A few years later, while visiting the beautiful city of Santa Barbara, from the hills we noticed that there were few solar systems installed on the rooftops. This seemed paradoxical, considering not only the ideal sunshine exposure of the city, but also the environmental consciousness of its inhabitants. We began researching and interviewing community leaders, environmental organizations, architects, builders and, of course, property owners. We gathered a tremendous amount of information and decided to take on the challenge: to start our own solar company in Santa Barbara, which would deliver solar differently.
