About Us

Founded in 2015, Bright Planet Consulting is a solar engineering firm local to the Bay Area in California that operates with one singular mission. Our goal is to make sustainable energy accessible and affordable for everyone.

To fulfill this mission, we provide our clients with the highest quality solar panel technology on the market.

Competitively priced, our solar solutions work for every budget imaginable, whether you own your home, manage multi-family dwellings, or develop commercial property.

However, we take this sustainability commitment even further by:

  • Determining if you’re eligible for a $0 out-of-pocket program that can reduce your monthly utility bills by up to 40% or more.
  • Helping you secure low-interest financing with specialized solar loans.
  • Ensuring that you qualify for all relevant incentives, rebates, credits, and tax breaks. These subsidies can help drive down the total cost of your solar installation.
  • Customizing, engineering, and installing a professional solar PV system that delivers the highest savings and return on investment (ROI).
  • Providing ongoing PV system maintenance and monitoring to guarantee you receive optimal value from your solar power investment for decades to come.

Whether as a homeowner, property manager, or commercial real estate developer – if your electricity bill is more than $65 a month, we can help you save money by going solar today.


What makes us so confident?  

In just the past few years alone, we have served over 1,000 Bay Area residents. And to date, we’ve helped our customers save an average of $96 every month (or roughly $1,152 a year).

Moreover, those savings will only increase as utility rates keep climbing up. The solar PV solutions we provide help to shield our customers from these inevitable grid electricity price hikes.

In addition, we maintain partnerships with leading PV manufacturers and solar financing companies, including – Sunrun, Sunlight Financial, Dividend Solar, Nest Labs, and Renew Financial (PACE Financing).

Bright Planet consulting does an awesome job from start to finish. Paul Chojnacky did magic not once but twice - yes 2 homes we had owned - he consulted and worked with us. He gets involved from the beginning to the end until we were satisfied. First - we wanted to go green and at the same time we wanted to reduce our electricity bill. In 2015 - He got us a system designed, installed, configured and not only we went green energy, our bills saved over 60% of electricity bills. I had him install a 240V connector in garage and install the Electric car charger. It was a great system and we all enjoyed green energy. Not knowing much of Solar panels we went first time on a lease basis which has 20year free maintenance. Mostly to cover $0 cost maintenance. In May of this year he helped us transfer our lease to the buyer when we sold this home. Basically he went all his way to help us and have a smooth transition. Second time in June/July 2018 - when we purchased a new home, we wanted to go green again. This time we purchased the Solar panels and also have Tesla Wall charger installed. We purchased as we had experience for the last 3 years and took his recommendations. The purchase comes with 20 year worry free warranty. Paul is great and so are his staff members who communicated with me during the initial phase, design, installation and configuration. His staff kept me updated even though I was out of country, but work at home progressed. They do all the work for you from getting inspections, design, permits, approvals from City and PG&E and follow up until we were satisfied. Our system even though producing electricity it was not showing the production on the app or website. He diligently worked with the Solar panel company got it sorted in short while. I highly recommend using Bright Planet Consulting for all your Solar needs and they do an amazing job from start to finish. His staff does excellent work and update the progress. Thanks Paul and team for wonderful work.
