Our Origin Story...

In the beginning...

Tron was created by Lester Gray after moving to Illinois with little money, a lot of determination and one big vision to make solar affordable and efficient in Chicagoland. After a quick establishment as a leader in the solar field, Tron's office slowly grew out of Lester's basement and into a rapidly growing 44-person staffed office. It was there where our legendary operations department was handcrafted and trained to become one of the most efficient operations teams in the nation.


The leadership of Tron vowed to build the company on a culture of transparency, 5-Star Customer Service and industry-leading installation and production. Our foundation is set to enable us to continue serving our country with clean, productive renewable energy while saving money in the process.


Our Values & Vision...

There is purpose in everything...

We're bringing the best solar experience to our customers through our headache-free process, high-quality installation, excellent customer care and eco-friendly innovation.

Make no mistake - there is a reason we're Chicagoland's highest rated local solar company. We ease the switch to solar energy for your property through the best quality installation work and design, certified 5-Star NCSA Customer Service, industry leading warranties and one of the top operations team in the nation.

The vision of Tron far exceeds renewable energy; we intend to take homes into the future of tech - with smart home technology, solar energy, battery storage, solar shingles and EV vehicle accessories.

Hands Together

What Makes Us Different?

This one is easy...

Integrity It's of our utmost importance to operate our business with integrity - always doing what's best for our customers. We're also locally owned and operated in Buffalo Grove, IL, which means we're not just another giant corporate solar company coming into your town and then leaving.

Respect: We don't treat our customers like customers - we treat them like family. Our respect toward you and the impact on our environment is at the forefront of our company values, and our Customer Service team is nationally recognized and certified by the NCSA, which means that you're not just in good hands, you're in great hands. With Tron, you have peace of mind for all your solar needs.

Quality: If BMW considers itself a "the ultimate driving machine", then we consider ourselves "the ultimate solar company". The quality of your solar panel installation matters to us and that's why our design and installation is industry leading. As the highest rated solar company in Illinois, our work speaks for itself.
