Our Company

Solar Chief

Were all about you and our community!

We believe in providing our customers with options so their solar solution solves their specific needs. All solar panels are manufactured in the USA,
providing you with peace of mind when it comes to the quality of your investment.

We’re Proud of What We Offer


We proudly offer panels manufactured by SolarWorld and Stion, both of which are options that differ in price, looks, technology, and energy produced.

Take a look at each option below to get an idea of which panels work for you. If you have more questions, give us a call at 803-719-7924, we’d be happy to walk you through each option.

SolarWorld has built a strong reputation for the last 40 years in the solar industry for being an American-made, high quality product. All panels go through a rigorous series of tests to ensure their product will be long lasting. SolarWorld also offers 25 – 30 year warranties, depending on the panels chosen.

Stion panels are a great option for those who find the aesthetics of their panels important. Their technology utilizes a film solar between two glass panels for a smooth, seamless look. This option works best on sunny days and is the least expensive option that we offer. Stion offers a 25-year warranty.

Our Community

Being surrounded by a strong community is an important part of our business. We’re involved with Adopt-A-Waterway, a program local to the Midlands of South Carolina, which offers volunteer groups several opportunities to schedule litter pickups and keep our creeks, river, lakes, boat landing, and islands clean.
