Thank you for coming to PetersenDean
Since I started PetersenDean 35 years ago, we have fulfilled our mission of delivering world-class roofing and solar power systems at the best possible value for our customers. Now, more than ever, I believe that solar power should be accessible for all Americans. In fact, this year, an independent review of California Solar Initiative (CSI) data shows that for the last 12 months PetersenDean has achieved the most affordable solar installation price. The Solar4America campaign is my concept to deliver transparency in solar pricing and drive down the costs of solar power. No “financial magic” or “accounting tricks”; just a fair price and commitment to quality installation. We look forward to earning your business.
– Respectfully, Jim Petersen, Founder
