The solar pioneers that helps you become a Solar Pioneer

Since 2006, Nautilus Solar Energy™ has been a pioneer in solar energy. We've led the way by being one of the first companies to sell energy to a utility under a long-term contract. In the decades since, our 110+ solar farms across the country have provided clean energy to our 32,000 Solar Pioneers. Our leadership and innovation have allowed us to make solar power available to everyone with no investment and lowered the cost of powering homes, apartments and businesses. Today, we are a part of Power Sustainable, an industry leader in green energy.

What drives Nautilus Solar?

Generating solar energy and impressive results.

In our 18 years of leadership in the solar power industry, our farms have generated over 360,000 MHz of clean energy, enough to power a city of 36,000 homes for a year. 

This massive amount of renewable energy has kept 25,000 Metric Tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, the weight of 25 Eiffel Towers. 

Our 32,000 subscribers are making a difference for their planet, for their community, and their budget. 

We are actively promoting all forms of environmental action: from cleaner electricity to recycling to habitat preservation. Join our commitment to making a difference for our planet.

Building solar farms that serve nature and their communities

When you build a solar farm the right way, the local environment and community are well served. The only way to achieve these twin goals is to build, maintain, and operate our own solar farms throughout their entire lifecycle. It starts with choosing sites that allow us to have the least impact on the productivity of the land or disrupt wildlife. Often, our sites are built on lands that are in some way already compromised or unusable like quarries or landfills. And, after 40 years when our farms may be decommissioned, we restore the land to a healthy habitat according to our contract. We never delegate our responsibilities to you, to your community, or to the natural environment.

Our Name and Symbolism

The Nautilus name stems from the USS Nautilus, the world’s first operational nuclear-powered submarine, reflecting our co-Founder Jim Rice’s background as a Navy Submarine Veteran. Similarly, our logo is inspired by the chambered nautilus shell, symbolizing grace, growth, expansion, and renewal – all key elements of our journey at Nautilus Solar Energy.
