Kennan Harvey

Lead Installer, Off Grid Specialist

Kennan Harvey was raised off-grid when that meant kerosene lamps and wash tub bathing. As a result solar power became a life-long obsession and he continues to live off-grid in a self-built home. His wife Cheryl, who was raised in LA, says it is just like any other home! “Southwest Colorado is a perfect place for solar,” Kennan says, “Plain and simple, it is now cheaper than fossil fuel based electricity and is a mandate for addressing future climate change!”
