About

In a developed world, we expect the lights to come on when we flip a switch. We expect our water to be hot when we turn on the faucet. However, there is a growing awareness of the downside of the use of fossil fuels.

Welcome to Solar Equipment World, where we hope you can find everything you need to know about solar equipment.

A while back, a group of friends were having a conversation about how important it is to embrace sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint. The idea of a website devoted to content addressing the issue of solar equipment was born.

Here at Solar Equipment World, we don’t expect you to be an expert. Our well-researched content is for the novice and for people experienced in the world of solar equipment.

It’s not that difficult to go off-grid to alternative energy. There are some fairly basic steps to follow to get you using renewable sources of energy like thermal, wind, and solar. Not only do they cut down on your expenses, but also help make the planet a better place.

The CDP, or Climate Disclosure Project, estimates that more than 100 worldwide cities get at least 70 percent of their power and electricity from alternative energy. Shall we join them?

Chief Editor

Hi, I’m Jayson!

As Chief Editor for Solar Equipment World, my role is to supervise all submitted content to make sure it meets our high standards for quality and accuracy.

I came to work for Solar Equipment World straight out of college, where I got my degree in journalism and creative writing.

Being on the cusp of the sustainability movement is an exciting place to be in the 21st Century. Our world’s future depends on people making responsible, sustainable choices, and being a part of that here at Solar Equipment World is rewarding.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and bowling. I also do volunteer work at a VA hospital. Talking to war heroes really gives you a lot of perspective for living.

Thomas Porche
Communications Manager

I’m Thomas Porche, the Communications Manager for Solar Equipment World.

As Communications Manager, I promote the company's mission, services, and products. I love working closely with the management teams and editors to help shape our company’s values and image. My favorite part of the job is communicating these to the public. Interacting with our readers is a very rewarding part of my job.

It’s my job to make sure our messaging aligns with our key business strategies. I also serve as Solar Equipment World’s formal spokesperson and media liaison for conducting press conferences and meetings.

I graduated from college with a degree in communications, and worked for five years in the telecom industry before landing my dream job at Solar Equipment World.

I’m the proud father of three great kids and the most adorable two grandchildren. My wife and I have been married for 29 years. When we’re not enjoying our family, we love to travel. We’ve been to every country in European, have enjoyed an African safari, and we’re planning a trip to China for next year.

Bruce Wiley
Social Media Manager

My name is Bruce Wiley and I handle all of the social media for Solar Equipment World. I scour the web for anything and everything that makes our cause interesting and exciting.

Two years ago, my partner and I bought a tiny house, so sustainability is very important to me, and being a part of the mission here at Solar Equipment World is rewarding both professionally and personally.

I actually worked in education for seven years before taking my passion for social media and marketing into the business world. Working for Solar Equipment World is a dream job because I get to talk about sustainability and work in social media.

The social media landscape changes constantly, and it’s exciting to be a part of it.

As I mentioned, my partner and I are sustainability enthusiasts, and we enjoy outdoor living with our tiny house on wheels. Every chance we get, we travel, and since our tiny house can go with us, home is where we park it.
